Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
The people of Israel struggled with obedience to the Lord and He allowed them to be conquered and carried away. When Ezra and the remnant left Babylon after 70 years of captivity, he realized that this was not a project that could be handled in the flesh. He needed divine guidance from the Lord and had everyone stop so they could fast and repent.
There are no shortcuts in the Kingdom of God. King David could not be forgiven and restored until he first asked for forgiveness and repented of his transgressions. Fasting and repenting is much more than an emotional response to sin; it is a way of identifying the sin and renouncing it, but all this is an exercise in futility unless there is a willingness to correct your sinful actions and seek forgiveness.
God told King Solomon that if the Israelites humbled themselves and repented, the Lord would respond in turn. In other words, God’s response was predicated upon mankind’s action. There is a place of rest that God has prepared for all who are seek and give forgiveness and repent. It is a place of refuge and incredible peace in the midst of turmoil regardless of where you are in life.
