[Songs in the Night - November 29]  <  >

I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore. Revelation 1:18
THERE is no more important lesson in connection with the Gospel than that of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. The death of Jesus indeed exhibits to us his love, and the love of the Father on our behalf. But in the divine plan, in order for the proper benefit to come to man from the death of Jesus, he must rise from the dead; he must become the Captain of our Salvation, as well as our Redeemer. A dead Christ could not be our Savior; as it is declared, "Because I live, ye shall live also." (John 14:19)...It is in full accord with the scriptural presentation that joy thrills our hearts as we come to the resurrection morning of the millennial day and the promise that therein and thereby the Lord shall wipe away all tears from off all faces. Z'08-154, 156 R4147:2; 4175:2 (Hymn 111)
