How the Resurrection Changes Everything

The Apostle Paul actually said, "We [Apostles] have become a theatre to the world, to angels, and to men" (1 Corinthians 4:9). Too often when we hear the word "Theatre" we think of Broadway, soap operas and actors pretending to be something they are not. What does this have to do with the gospel?

Do you remember how this word 'theatre' was used during World War II? There was the 'European Theatre', 'The Mediterranean and African Theatre', and the 'Pacific Asian Theatre.' As you know, these were not soap operas or Broadway Productions but real places where real battles took place that has shaped our future for the last 70 years. There were real people, extraordinary leaders, fierce battles, grievous casualties, glorious victories and bitter defeats. One well known Colonel today narrates them in a TV program called "War Stories."

In many respects, we might say the Bible records the ultimate 'War Story' between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. Our world is the "Theatre" and our history provides a timeframe when this battle plays out. There are real people, supernatural powers both demonic and angelic, fierce battles, and grievous casualties. It can be summed by saying, "God wins! Satan loses!"
