After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. Matthew 28:1-2
The event that everyone was about to witness, is the greatest event in the history of mankind. No other event has more importance or changed the course of history than the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. An event so amazing, even to this day the details and evidence are still being debated and examined.
Why? Because on this day Jesus defeated death and Satan. There is no power of darkness that can stand against the Kingdom of God, because It is finished. Satans days are numbered and his schemes have no power over God.
His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. Matthew 28:3-4
Mighty Roman soldiers became weeping cowards in the presence of an angel of The Lord. The power of God is greater than any force in the universe, he spoke The Heavens and Earth into existence, and he raised Christ from the dead to live evermore and reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Matthew 28:5-6
It has been spoken and declared Jesus Christ has risen, he has risen! The body that was sacrificed for you and me has been resurrected forevermore. The shroud that covered Jesus body still bears the evidence of his shedded blood and image but he lives forevermore, he reigns forever because he is Risen Amen!
