What Does Resurrection Mean to You? Part 5: By Karen Rowe


There were witnesses of what Jesus did!  And, there were those who simply heard of the Miracle of a Dead man walking out of a grave!  Lazarus’s sisters said, Lord, by now he stinketh!  But Jesus demonstrated …

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

Believest thou this?

John 11:25-26

I hope I have blessed the Lord.  I pray this is a blessing to you.

Be happy friends, because God loves you and Jesus lives!!!!

What Does Resurrection Mean to You? Part 5: By Karen Rowe

What does Resurrection mean to you?

What a wonderful topic!
What a wonderful personal revelation!
What does Resurrection mean to us personally!
Resurrection Means we live!
Resurrection Means I can face tomorrow & get through today!
Resurrection Means God gave me Jesus & Jesus chose to die for me!
Jesus could have chosen to hide; or not even volunteer; but He didn’t!  Jesus chose this life, because he knew God loved Him & Jesus knew God loved me, and you and the whole world!
The world represents the sinner, the lost, the blind, the lame.  The world represents the consequences of sin…BUT the Resurrection is Jesus and what does the Resurrection mean to you matters; as Jesus matters to me.
Greater is He who lives in us than he that is in the world!
Jesus loves us!  He loves us! Oh how He loves us!  The Resurrection loved us enough to die for us, so that we could have life!  So that we could even have blessings!  So that we could have a relationship with the One who made us and restores us; both once for life and daily for the blessed life.  The transformation the Resurrection makes in me  ***  is my whole life story ,,, so far and every testimony I have; and the Resurrection continues in my life story for ever more!
When we have been there 10,000 years…Oh but there is no TIME in Heaven; only perfect life, because Jesus lives!  And because Jesus lives, so have we been given this incredible choice!
To live on earth as it is in heaven:  Today and forevermore!
My mind is swirling with what Resurrection Means to me and I could not contain the Peace and Joy & story of my life in a library of books!
Resurrection Means God loved Jesus!
God couldn’t NOT raise Jesus, because Resurrection means God loves Jesus! The Resurrection was a promise & the Resurrection is Truth and God always keeps His word!  Resurrection is no compromise & in Him we are in God!
Resurrection Means love!
RESURRECTION Means the Truth, the Way & the Life!
Because Jesus lives, I can face tomorrow & I can talk to God.   Because Jesus lives, I can be assured of my Salvation & I can see the Salvation of the Lord working in my life and in the lives of those around me … all because Jesus Lives!
You and I can abide in the Seal of the Resurrection!
Holy Spirit You are welcome here!
  Jesus knew !!!
What does the Resurrection mean to you?
What did the Resurrection mean to Mary and Martha?  They knew about a Resurrection, but they learned Jesus IS the Resurrection, when Jesus called Lazarus to come out of that grave & Lazarus walked out alive, because Jesus is the Resurrection & The Resurrection called Lazarus by name!
Not everyone come out that day, but the one Jesus call by name.  The Resurrection called Lazarus & The Resurrection calls the world!
Do you hear Him?  Do you hear a stirring in your heart to believe God’s testimony about His only begotten Son?  Has your soul been Resurrected to receive the life of God that is full of the Resurrection Benefits in a personal relationship with God?
You can!
You can know Jesus and God’s love for you personally thru and by the Miracle of this Resurrection that I have; and have come to know and believe!
For we have known and believed in the love God has for us. God is love.  And He who abides in love abides in God and God in Him.  Check out 1 John 4:16 and commit that verse to heart!
When you receive this, you will never be the same!  Glory Halleluiah!
Friends, I have some good news for you!  God loves you and He has your best interest at heart!
Because of this, I can tell!  And, unless God gives me more, we are about to finish this up in this 5 Part Series:  What does Resurrection mean to you?
Jesus was born to died, to be risen; that God’s perfect Creation could be re-born and be with Him forever more in a happy life with God!
Jesus is the Resurrection!
For God So Loved the world!
Jesus did not not come to condemn the world, but that thru The Resurrection, all might be saved.
And my eternally saved soul is saved daily too … from my thoughts, emotions and will that drifts me away from my God!  My mind is calmed in the Resurrection daily!  My will is easy to steer towards God’s will for me, because I know and believe in the Resurrection that is for me / not against me.
No one can imitate the Resurrection!
Peace and Joy … beyond the compromise, conditions or circumstances … The Resurrection is the Miracle; and there are benefits of knowing the man who laid down His life for me and you to be forgiven:  Jesus is Resurrection, the same man whom God has Risen from His grave, lives in me through and by the Resurrection:  The Holy Spirit has come!  Jesus didn’t stay in that dead place more than 3 days / Jesus only went there so He could witness to those in the grave, so they could benefit from knowing Jesus too!
No one can imitate the life that stirs this Resurrection life of God who abides inside my very soul!  No one can imitate the Miracle of Peace, or the Miracle of Joy!
When we discover Jesus is The Resurrection & because He lives… The Resurrection can write our story & He Is!
Goodness! Righteousness!  Glory & Hallelujah!
Faith!  Mercy!  Should I continue on?
What does Resurrection mean to you!
I was lost, but now Resurrection called my name to trust God without seeing, because I was blind to understand, but now I have received sight & all ability as God enables me to grow in ever-increasing knowledge of Jesus, The Resurrection day by day and because Jesus can never die again!!!  And, because of what the Resurrection means to me,  for as long as God calls my Today Today, and then thereafter TOO, I will never die again!
Because the Resurrection belongs to me and I to God, I even know if God so willed, it is possible to be just taken without dying, but the death the world fears has already passed from me, because of Jesus!
You see, Jesus is the Resurrection, so I am no longer a slave to fear, because I belong to God.  For God had not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, of authority and of a sound mind.
The Resurrection has changed and continues daily to change me!
The Resurrection is FOR you too!
He, Jesus, The Resurrection is for you, with you and the Resurrection abides in you when you believe God’s Testimony speaking to your heart and when you use your words to confess to hear in your own soul, which belongs to God really, that the truth is that Jesus is the Resurrection & you are a child of God!
Believe is a powerful word of power and authority!
Believe …
God’s Creation, because The Resurrection was with God in the beginning.  The Resurrection was with God and was God.  In the beginning was the Word and the Word was and is The Resurrection! Jesus is the Resurrection!
The Resurrection come to be born, to die, to be The Resurrection for us to be with us and in us, because God is! *God is with us and has never left us!
The Resurrection stood the gap for us, because we wanted to be like God, but discovered God is God and we are His Child.   But we can be like His Son, because the same Spirit of The Resurrection lives in us whom has Risen Jesus from the dead after he conquered sin and death!  This Resurrection is to  have and * might receive.
Jesus said to Martha, “I am the Resurrection.”
God, told Moses, “I Am whom I am.”
The Resurrection by Name is “I am” to us and The Resurrection IS all & everything we need the Resurrection to be.
God is Holy and Life with God is good.
What does the Resurrection mean to you?
We hope this Series has been a blessing to you!  We would love to hear how you might have been encouraged or inspired by this Series.
I believe this is the message.  God loves you and He has your best interest at heart!
The Resurrection is the Best news ever!
Because He lives!!!  And God loves you!!!
Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!




Praise God – For we are ever-increasing in HIS power and in His knowledge that is of God!


” For God

hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “


Thru and By Jesus,
God has given us the Holy Spirit OF His Mind … A Sound Mind is HIS Mind, which translates to Self-Control & Self-Disclipline!       .  .  .  .   Is this good for you Today?


Obedience to God IN Faith in & of The Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is a POWERFUL Name! & Jesus is the name above all names.



“BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup (1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV).”

“FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV).”

Thank you Jesus for this Revelation?  I pray in Jesus Name for you to Receive in Christ the life Jesus was Risen to Give you!  Do you want to be made well?  what did Jesus say to the man who wanted to be made well?



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to Jesus, Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.



Repent is a beautiful word!  It means letting go of condemnation & turning to walk with God In Jesus Name.

*We can’t get to where God is taking us if we wont’ let go of what is in one hand to follow Jesus with both hands ready to receive the life and blessings that are found in our relationship with God the Father through and by Jesus, the Son of God:  Jesus truly is the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This is my Testimony, but by me telling you what Jesus does for me, this gives God permission to do it again in your life!


Can I say give God permission?  Sure!  As a parent is waiting on a child to believe enought to obey … to come into a trusting obedience:  yes, this response to God in Believing in Whom God is activates our believing Faith for God to do it again!  God is waiting on us to move from point A to point B!


1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Next articleDon’t You Just Love John? Angel’s Prayer Of The Day…
Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
