"He is not here ; He is Risen!"

" He is not here, but is risen : remember how he spake unto you while he was yet in Galilee". Luke 24 :6.
My Redeemer lives !
Let the earth rejoice and let the nations sing!

"And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again ". Mark 10:32-34.
Early on the Resurrection morning , the disciples came to the tomb of Jesus expecting to find His corpse laying there. They had planned to anoint the corpse with spices; and to lament and to weep over what had "befallen" them.
They came in good faith, to show tneir love and respect for their much beloved leader and Miracle Healer, Jesus of Nazareth.
They turned upat the graveside expecting to see His corpse, despite the fact that Jesus had told them that He will be crucified, that He will die , be buried and then on the third day , He will rise again.
Although ,they had heard Him saying so on a number of occassions, they had believed His promises, but.....
They came to mourn; but at the graveside , they received a pleasant surprise and a proclaimation of the greatest dimension !

Despite the fact that we know God's promises concerning our lives , sometimes, we are incredulous because we imagine their magnitude and we think they sound too good to be true!
Despite the fact that nay-sayers and our mockers know that we have a mighty God who does save indeed , they still ask us,"Where is your God?!"
Those who have written us off as "lost" in that seemingly insurmountable pit of despair , KNOW we serve the Living God ; yet they would not hesitate to kick us and spit on us when we are down!

But, if only we believe; we shall see the salvation of God, today. Now, today is the day of Salvation !
"Dost thou believe on the Son of God?"
If only you can cry out and say,"Yes Lord , I believe !"
Today , He , Jesus will cleanse you and deliver you!
He lived for us , He died for us and He is risen!
His grave is empty and HE IS ALIVE FOREVER MORE!

Heaven is proclaiming our liberty and our promotion to the world !
"Why do you seek my people,the living amongst the dead? You seek the healed and delivered amongst the bound and the afflicted?
The rich are found in palaces , not in junkyards! Why do you seek my people in their former abode in prisons ,in the dust and on every dunghill?
They are no longer there, they are risen because they bear my name !
They are are delivered and they are promoted because I live forever and I have overcome the world !"
Childofthe Most High God, your space in that graveyard , that prison, that junkyard and that dunghill where you have been held captive has become empty!
Our portion is Liberty and Promotion from every prison,dust and dung hill to be lifted high up and to sit with the princes of the land!
I Samuel 2:8.
From the wrath of liars and from the evil counsel of every Potiphar's wife ,we HAVE BEEN delivered and promoted from prison to thrones of glory !
Every enemy of our soul shall "bow the knee" before us!
From every shame and defeat , from every bed of infirmity , from every "Bethesda Pool" where we have been dumped , abandoned and forgotten by everybody, we shall arise and walk! John 5:1-9.
From every sudden death and mockery , we have been delivered. Our portion is " Tali-tha cumi!" ,says the Lord .
All derision and scorn shall cease, with great astonishment ! Mark 5: 35-43
Our challenges of shame and anguish shall be heard and seen no more; because we are walking majestically in glory and victory; in every land where we have been put to shame! Zephaniah 3:19.
"I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death ". Revelation 1:18.
