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
Pekahiah was an evil king that maintained the political hoax of the golden calves and served as a vassal king of Assyria. He was assassinated two years into his reign by Pekah, who favored an alliance with Syria.
King Ahaz of Judah was aligned with Assyria, and as a result, Syria and Israel attacked the southern kingdom, killing 120,000 men and returned to Samaria with 200,000 captives, but a prophet of God rebuked the Israeli soldiers for their action.
Assyria went on to conquer Syria and took large swaths of territory from Israel, reducing it to a rump state. An army captain named Hoshea assassinated Pekah to become the last king of Israel. He rebelled against Assyria and joined with Egypt. Samaria was captured and Israel was destroyed as a nation.
The warnings from the prophets finally came true and the pathway to God’s redemption was terminated when the northern kingdom was carried away into captivity to be mixed with other people groups.
