Today's dance choreography is to a beautiful, but long (7 1/2 minute), song called Resurrecting by Elevation Worship. You're arms will get a good workout by the end if you keep them high in praise, but the focus and lyrics of this song should energize you enough to keep you moving with excitment throughout the dance as we look forward to the return of Christ at the First Resurrection!
Revelation 20:6 (NASB95) states, "Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years."
The central hope of the Gospel or Good News of Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus) is based in Christ's resurrection and our hope of resurrection in and through Him.
Paul explains the centrality of the resurrection in the Gospel when he says (1 Corinthians 15:13-14, 17 NASB95),
"But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised; 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. . . . and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins."
But Christ did rise from the grave, having overcome sin and death in human flesh.
"For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit, (Romans 8:3-4, NASB95).
And the Lord Yeshua (Jesus) Himself explained in John 5:25–29 (NASB95), saying, 25“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26 “For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; 27 and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. 28 “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, 29 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."
Therefore, let us rejoice in the truth and power of the Resurrection of Christ as we dance to this song called Resurrecting. May we worship the King with our whole heart, mind, soul, and strength, as we look forward to the glorious day when we will see Him face to face at the First Resurrection!
