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
God had a specific purpose for Abram and Sarai and changed their names to make it clear they would be parents to the rest of the world. Jesus came to visit them prior to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in order to remind them of His promise of an heir.
God supernaturally touched Abraham and Sarah to conceive, and when Isaac finally arrived, he brought a lot of joy to their lives. Everything was seemingly fine until many years later when the Lord asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Moriah. God already knew what was in the heart of Abraham, it's just that he needed to know for himself in a final test.
The latter part of Abraham's life was used to bury Sarah and make sure that Isaac had the right wife. Abraham outlived Sarah by 40 years and he started a new family with a second wife. However, he also had a harem of concubines and produced children with them as well.
Jesus was able to build faith in Abraham but He was never able to bring Abraham into a moral life. This father of Israel had joys and regrets about his time on earth and there is much to learn from this man of faith.
