He is risen!! He is risen indeed!! Just as he said He would, Jesus has risen from the dead and now sits at the right hand of God the Father! Satan has been defeated! Christ has conquered death for us!
Can you just imagine the pure joy and elation that these women felt after they realized that no one had stolen Jesus' body out of the tomb, but that God Himself had raised Jesus back to life?!
This is what changed everything people! When we accepted Jesus as our Savior we became joint heirs with Jesus, and we have the Holy Spirit living inside us enabling us to live a mighty powerful life for Christ. This should spur us on to tell those we meet about our wonderful Lord Jesus and His great love for them!! :)

The Devil couldn't beat Him, the grave couldn't hold Him, and the world couldn't divert His message. For those of you who are facing problems, consider this: Because He lives, you have hope. Your hope is not in some sort of counterfeit political slogan to get elected by, but your hope is in the eternal Word of God.

"The Resurrection of Jesus is the crowning truth of our faith in Christ, a faith believed and lived as the central truth by the First Christian community; handed on as fundamental by Tradition; established by the documents of the New Testament; and preached as an essential part of the Paschal mystery along with the cross"
God prevented the holy women from fearing by sending his Angel to preach them the good news; they will not find the Body of Jesus, be Joyful, He is Risen, don't be fearful, When such a good news has been preached and from that time on was preached orally and later on in writing, to our days, for over 2000 years the news of the resurrection has been a joyful one, and will stay eternally, a Joy that surpasses all the Joy of the World, that Being Christian we have hope for eternal Joy starting from our days . We must not take such Joy for Granted, we must work not to fall again in the Joy of this world, but work forward to posess eternal Joy with Christ seated at the Right Hand of The Father along with the worship of all the elders.

If He rose from the dead..I sure believe that I too will rise and live again only if I trust in the LORD

Jesus Christ has risen from the dead!

This is the most wonderful news in the universe — that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for our sins and was raised from the dead three days later. Jesus was crucified and died to pay the penalty for our sins on Good Friday, almost 2,000 years ago. His body was placed in a tomb and a large stone was rolled to block the entrance to the tomb and soldiers guarded the tomb.

Three days later, on the day we celebrate as Easter Sunday, Christ rose from the dead! The soldiers shook for fear and ran, and the stone was rolled away from the tomb. Jesus appeared to His disciples; He was now miraculously alive! Jesus conquered sin and fear and death. Even the grave had no power over Him.

So this day, let us celebrate that Jesus died for our sins and then was raised from the dead. He has risen into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God His Father. All of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior have been given the gift of eternal life. Praise the Lord for His goodness and love.

We are waiting for him to come again, as he promised, each day I get more excited, and yet even yesterday when I spoke to someone about Christ and his return, the air around the conversation was one of disbelief. So many really think that this is just a fable and our heads are not screwed on tightly. Spread the news he is coming. JJ

Praise you oh! LOrd Jesus Christ,you have died on the cross to save us from our sins You are risen from the dead coz If We accept Our Lord Jesus Christ and follow His words and do good to other people, Our sins has for given, with humbleness,humility, the world is full of temptations, it is up to us to be a true servant of God no matter how difficult, we can survive coz God is always watiching us He promised to us to have Enternal lifE! GoD bless us all and Peace,Happiness too!Have a blessed monday!

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

One of the greatest aspects of The Gospel that is often overlooked..It was a woman that delivered the "good news" aka The Gospel, of Jesus being risen from the dead to His disciples... Many claim the bible is sexist or anti-woman...Back in those days, most women were basically property, and had little to power or authority in or over their lives. Yet it was women who an angel of the Lord entrusted with such an important message. Pretty awesome if you ask me...If the writers of the Bible would have wanted to be more representative of the culture in those times, they could have chosen to switch things up and write that it was some guy who was the one the angel appeared to. Yet they chose to be as accurate as possible, even if future generations would have used that as an excuse to not want to believe in Jesus and the Bible, because for the next many centuries there is no way anybody would want to believe it was a woman who was the first to know of Jesus's resurection. Just another little wrinkle in how God's Kingdom has always functioned counter to ways of the world.

Rev 1:5-6 and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the FIRSTBORN of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood (6) and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Joh 14:1-3 "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. (2) In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU? (3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN and will TAKE YOU to myself, that where I am you may be also.

AMEN! AMEN

Are you really seeking Jesus Christ? His resurrection means victory for you so keep going knowing that the parade is at the other end.

What are we looking for? Most of us spend a lot of time searching, we don't know what we are looking for but something better certainly has to be out there. As much as we try we never seem to be satisfied. As soon as we get something it quickly grows old and we are off chasing the next better thing, or if we are addicted to someone or something we spend countless hours chasing that first high. We never get it! Not so when we seek Christ. When we seek Christ the highs keep getting higher as long as we stay focused and continue to grow in him. If we fall he is always there to pick us up. If you have not already, End your searching by asking God to reveal himself to you. He will find you! In fact he has he just waiting for you to ask. Soon your eyes will be opened and all his promises will begin to come to you. You will enjoy a new freedom and happiness, Your fears and hurts will begin to slip away, you will live with the promise of eternal life with Christ and all his Glory!

The angel who announced the Good News of the reurrection to the women gave them 4 messages 1.Don't be frightened.THe reality of the resurrection brings joy, not fear. When you are afraid, remember the empty tomb. 2. He isn't there. Jesus is alive, not dead and is not to be looked for among the dead. He is alive with his people. 3. Come in and see. The women could check the evidence themselves. The tomb was empty then and is empty today. The resurrection is a historical fact. 4. Go quickly and tell. They were suppsoe to spread the joy of the resurrection. We too are to spread the Good News about Jesus' resurrection.

WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE....

Anjel povedal žene: "Nebojte sa, ja viem, že hľadáte Ježiša, ktorý bol ukrižovaný. On tu nie je, bol vzkriesený, rovnako povedal. Príďte sa pozrieť na miesto, kde ležal. Potom choďte rýchlo povedať jeho učeníkom: 'vstal z mŕtvych a bude pred vami do Galiley. Tam ho uvidíte!.' Teraz ako som vám povedal. "

Thank You for this Day Lord!!!!

This is how the testimony of the risen savior went out through Galilee. It was received because of the many witnesses that gave an account of seeing him. The bible says in Matthew 18:16"in the mouth of two - three witnesses let the word be established." This principal is demonstrated today in the courts of law.

indeed,he's risen cos death couldnt hold him captive,this alone should encourage us to know that indeed he'll never leave us nor forsake us.he reigns forever more;yay-!!-:)
