Thats an important point to remember, because we must believe in the resurrection to be saved, not just that He died.He said this knowing that Jesus was going to die, so he believed in the resurrection and believed in the kingdom. By his words he made the door of the Grace of the Messiah Jesus open to him.

Paul said when I am weak I am strong. He relied on the strength and power of GOD, not his own strength. When we do this , then we are victorious over the enemy
