 Resurrection Truth


"Understanding The Resurrection" by MRabbi Hillel Ben Yochanan. © 2013 by Nehr HaOlam Publications. "Resurrection is the act where a lifeless corpse is physically restored back to life (OED 2013)." Resurrection The Oxford English Dictionary defines resurrection as the act or the state of being where a lifeless corpse is physically restored back to life (OED 2013).
The Human Spirit

According to Scriptures, mankind possesses a spirit that resides within his body and gives that body which the spirit resides in life (reference Job 32:8). In fact, Yeshua taught his disciples that it is this spirit which resides within the human body that gives life to the human body (reference John 6:30). Without the spirit residing within the human body, death (chiefly being, the cessation of life) takes place (reference John 6:63, 1 Peter 3:18 and James 2:26). As modern day disciples of the teachings of Messiah Yeshua, we reason that the spirit plays a vital role in the functions of both life and death within the human body and understand that when the spirit is present within the human body, the body is alive; when the spirit is absent from the body, the body is dead.

The Source of The Human Spirit

The spirit that resides within the human body originally came from the Heavenly Father. The Bible says, “And Hashem Elohim formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7, KJV). Upon referencing Job 32:8, the Bible enthusiast will soon realize that mankind continued to receive this spirit that resides within him from the Heavenly Father. Just as much as mankind has received this spirit from the Heavenly Father so that he may live, so too this very same spirit within all mankind must return indiscriminately to the Heavenly Father from whence it originally came: "For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit [within mankind] will return to Elohim who gave it" (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

Do Not Marvel

"You guided my conception and formed me in the womb. You clothed me with skin and flesh, and you knit my bones and sinews together” (Job 10:11-2), the Bible says. Just as much as Elohim was able to form mankind from the dust of the earth and cause life to enter into Adam's lifeless body, He too is capable to allow for mankind to rise again from the grave. Just as much as the Heavenly Father was able to create us from our mother’s womb, so too he can reassemble bones together again and cover it up with soft tissues (reference Ezekiel 37:5-10). Yeshua taught, "Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which ALL who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment” (John 5:28-9, NASB).

Our Redeemer Lives

“But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see Elohim! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!” (Proverbs 19:25-7) In like manner, Yeshua taught that “[…] just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants. In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father who sent him” (John5:21-23, NLT). As a result of the Heavenly Father granting Yeshua the authority to judge both the living and the dead, Scriptures forewarn that “[…] we must all appear before the judgment seat of Messiah, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds [performed] in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10, NASB). “‘Yes,’ says the Spirit, "[…] your deeds follow […]’” is the affirmation that The Heavenly Father gives each and every one of us (Revelations 14:13, NASB).
