Eight Victories of Jesus Post-Resurrection

In a powerful sermon delivered by Rt Rev Dr Joseph Karimi Kibucwa at Ack Kathunguri, the victories of Jesus following His resurrection were illuminated, providing compelling evidence of His triumph over death and despair.

  1. Victory over Despair: Jesus’ resurrection dispelled the despair that clouded the hearts of His disciples, offering them renewed hope (Mark 16:9).
  2. Victory over Death: Mary Magdalene and other witnesses testified to Jesus’ victory over death, confirming His resurrection (Matthew 28:9-10).
  3. Victory over Confusion: The encounter with Jesus on the road to Emmaus dispelled the confusion that gripped His followers, bringing clarity and understanding.
  4. Victory over Fear: Jesus’ appearance to His disciples, even in their hiding, removed all fear, empowering them to boldly proclaim His message.
  5. Victory over Doubt: Thomas’ doubts were erased when he encountered the risen Jesus, solidifying his faith in the resurrection.
  6. Victory over Failure: Peter’s restoration by Jesus, despite his earlier denial, showcased victory over failure and inspired him to fulfill his calling.
  7. Victory over Dominion: Jesus bestowed His disciples with power and authority, enabling them to heal the sick, cast out demons, and proclaim the kingdom of God.
  8. Victory over All Things: The promise of the Holy Spirit’s coming sealed Jesus’ victory over all things, empowering His followers to continue His work (Acts 1:3-8).

This sermon not only reaffirmed the truth of Jesus’ resurrection but also emphasized the trans-formative power it holds for believers today. In a service of Confirmation and Thanksgiving, attendees were reminded of the enduring victory found in Christ.
