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 Philistines believed that the God of Israel was just another national god like Dagon, and after they captured the Ark of the Covenant, they decided to place it in the house of Dagon. The Lord would not tolerate such an affront and the situation escalated until the Philistines realized they were cursed and returned the Ark to the Israelites who in turn disrespected God by opening the Ark and looking inside. Some fifty thousand died as a result.
Meanwhile, Samuel told the people it was time to repent and reject all the pagan gods if they wanted to be set free from the yoke of the Philistines. The people of Israel responded to God's call and Samuel told them to assemble in Mizpeh. The Philistines decided this was a golden opportunity to wipe out the Israelites but these pagans underestimated the living God and He struck them with lightning.
Samuel served as a Judge and Prophet in Israel for many years but in his old age he appointed his two sons as Judges. However, they were just as evil as the sons of Eli had been. Samuel was not a good father and he repeated Eli's sins. This was the reason the people of Israel desired a king like the other nations.
