Easter Message

Matthew 28:1-10 KJV
1Â In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Today is Easter many children will be hiding Easter eggs, thinking about chocolate bunnies, and not fully grasping the significance of our Savior death and resurrection. After all children must be taught about the cross, just like you and I were. Taught that Christ died for our sins. Some people called Easter Resurrection Day instead and rightful so. There focus not on the celebration of spring, but the celebration of the resurrection of Christ. The celebration of newest that comes with the understanding and belief in what our Lord did on the cross for us. Some people will be wearing their Easter hats, and dresses and men in spring suits with new shoes. All for the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. Each church celebrating with song and worship. Each remember the reason of this Sunday and the reason many of us worship on Sunday and no longer on Saturday.

The women went the first day of the week early in the morning to the tomb. As they approach there was talk how to move a stone, when the earth began to quake an angel descend and rolled away the stone. The angel had terrified the soldiers at his appearing and they laid as though dead. The women however were not so terrified, instead the angel spoke to them and told them their Lord was not in the grave. He told the woman the Lord had risen and to go tell the disciples. Angel began the message of the physical birth and now began to message of the physical resurrection. In which the women were in form to tell the disciples that Jesus would meet them in Galilee. On there journey to the disciples they met up with Jesus and fell at his feet to worship Him.

Imagine seeing those events of another quake, an angel descending and the rock being rolled away. Only to learn the body is not there. Yet hearing He had risen. He had risen, the unbelievable had happened and was confirmed by Him showing himself to the woman. How much more proof do we need to know Christ arose. There was over 400 witnesses to the fact Christ arose and he minister for over a month to the people after His resurrection. He left an impact to those He would leave behind to go back to Heaven. The spiritual church established with His resurrection to all that would believe in Him. He had victory over the grave and we will to if we only will believe.

May you have a Happy Resurrection Day Remembering the Resurrection of Our Lord Savior Jesus Christ..
