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 time period in the Book of Judges was a spiritual rollercoaster in which Lucifer was clearly winning. Divine intervention was needed and the Godhead chose a barren woman to give birth to a prophet. The man chosen to train Samuel was a moral failure. But God doesn’t care about circumstances and Samuel became a judge of Israel who loved the Lord and was faithful to call the people to repentance.
Unfortunately, he neglected his son’s just like Eli had done and the people of Israel demanded a king when Samuel put them in charge. A monarchy was not better than a theocracy but the Hebrews wouldn’t listen to reason. Their hearts were set on being like other nations with a king that would make demands, tax the people, raise an army, and need servants.
This referendum was not a rejection of Samuel, but of the government set up by Jesus, and the Israelite's decision would enable future evil kings to lead the nation into sin.
