Our Lord is Risen Indeed

“But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay and go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold I have told you”. Matthew 28:5-7.

It is with joy that I write you this message of good news, that Christ is risen. Risen from the dead!

From various passages from the scripture we read that many people witnessed the life of our resurrected Christ and they indeed gave a vivid account of their experience.

The first of such account came from Mary Magdalene and the other Mary who came to the tomb as the week began to dawn. For them to see His dead Body is even enough so that they could take care of His Body but amazingly they had another encounter that was shocking! He was not there.

You see many of you reading this article represent the two Marys!

You love the Lord, but religiously you will go anywhere to meet with Him. Even in the tomb! A place where He once was but no more, and you don’t mind as long as you can see “His dead Body” and still render your service or religious duties to Him. No mission or vision to be fulfilled in the tomb. No productivity in the tomb.
Today just like the angel said. He is not in the place of the dead. He is risen as He said and He is still alive forever more!

O the joy on their faces when they ran to inform the other disciples of the truth. When you are exposed to the truth about our risen Lord, it brings joy, great joy to your soul and your spirit man is elated!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the news that Jesus is alive is not a fairy tale! It is true. To believe it, is to see the lives of many alive today that have believed the same account and the joyful feeling that it brings to their soul and spirit is evidence enough.

Are you one of those who believe and have taken the step of receiving Him to be your Lord and Saviour if not what are you waiting for?
Not only is He alive! He is coming back! O Glory be to God!.
You may say hold it right there how did you know?

John 20:6-7 declares that “then Simon  Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around  His, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself”

From the account of Apostle John, we read of what they saw inside the tomb.
The linen cloths used to wrap Him was in the tomb and there was no body.
If it was Roman government of Jesus day or after His time on earth who sent their soldiers to remove Him, by now under the microscope of satellite, He would have been found.

If it was the Jews themselves who stole the Body away, by now bless them they would have presented Him to the world to proof that He did not ascend to Heaven as we Christians profess.

If it is any religious group or school of discipleship of another leader who stole His Body am sure they would have done something BUT He is alive!

“ For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according  to the scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was by over five hundred brethren at once of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.”1 Corinthians 15:3-8.

The other experience was, they saw the handkerchief around His head NOT lying with the Lenin cloths but FOLDED together in a place by itself.

In Jewish culture of the day, when handkerchief is folded, it is a sign that the person whose it is, is still COMING BACK!

This I believe was what the other disciple saw in the tomb that made him to believe.

Ladies and Gentlemen, apart from the Scriptural basis to support the resurrection, many of us believed that Jesus Christ is alive through His transforming power in our lives and we also believe that the same Holy Spirit that raised Him from the dead is within us to remind us constantly of His coming back again.

This time not as a suffering King of the Jews BUT as the King of Kings and Lord of all Lords!

To experience His life of joy and peace:
Acknowledge you are a sinner.
No one is good enough for heaven. We were born in sin and with sinful nature. Orange tree will only produce orange fruit.
Confess your sin(s)

To God in the name of Jesus. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart, (that is the word of faith which we preach) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Remember; do not go to the tomb to find Him! He is not there but risen.
