HE IS RISEN! .., Mark 16:6-7

Mark 16:6-7 but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. Now go and tell his disciples, including Peter, that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you before he died.” 

Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome were on their way to the tomb Sunday morning to annoit the body of Jesus for the last time. They were unsure how they would be able to reach the body of Jesus due to the large stone in front of the tomb as well as the roman guard. What they found shocked them. The stone had been rolled aside. When they entered, they saw an angel in a white robe. What he told them validates what Jesus had been saying. Mark 9:31 ..He said to “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies. He will be killed, but three days later he will rise from the dead.” 

Not only by dying on the cross for our sins but rising from the dead did Jesus defeat death permanently so that we could enjoy everlasting life in heaven with the Father. One caveat, as long as we choose Jesus as our savior. 

Praise be to God the Father that He raised His son from the dead for our transgressions. Thank you for freeing us from death and delivering us from our sin. We love you Father, Blessed be your name!, In Jesus name, AMEN!
