The reason why Jesus the perfect sacrifice was raised to life again on the third day is found in the word 'perfect.'<quoted text>Salaamz & LMAO Crosstianity is the disease!...Holy-Islaam is the C U R E! Cheerz
Animal sacrifices were imperfect, they just pointed to the perfect one. That is the reason why they had to be offered again and again. That is also the reason why they were not raised to life again. However, Christ being the perfect, sinless sacrifice only had to die once. Since he paid the punishment for sin, namely death by his own death, the latter no longer became a reality!
That is precisely why God raised Jesus to live again. This profound truth is expressed in 1 Corinthians 15:54-57:
'When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true:'Death has been swallowed up in victory.''Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?'
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.'
Jesus defeats the death that came as a result of sin! He as the firstfruit has been raised to life therefore. Those who believe in his perfect sacrifice will follow his example once they die physically. The following verses, again quoted from 1 Corinthians 15 confirm this good news:
'But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.'(Verses 20-22)
Here are some more verses that speak about the same truth:
'Jesus was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.'(Romans 4:25)
'For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.
For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace?
By no means! Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey - whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?(Romans 6:9-16)
Muslims rejection of Jesus means:
Muslims die in their sins and go to hell.
Muslims are idiots, they laugh all the while they are going to hell.
