Hallelujah, He has Risen!

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope you have a great day, and take some time to reflect on the true meaning of Easter...Jesus, and the empty tomb! I can only imagine the overwhelming joy that was felt when Mary Magdalene discovered that He had risen from dead, and overcome the grave. How amazing! Now, we can say along with the apostle Paul, "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Cor. 15:55) For Jesus died once and for all, so that we may not perish, but have everlasting life. Praise the Lord! Friday was not a good Friday for Jesus, but it was a great Friday for us. Aren't you so thankful that on that Friday he wore a crown of thorns, but is now sitting at the right hand of God wearing the victor's crown?! His death was not the end- but rather an end of the beginning..the beginning of life! Praise Him today, friends!``

28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2 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. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said..." (Matthew 28:1-6)
