The Tomb Is Empty

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

It was dead quiet and pitch dark. A mixed smell of flowers, oils and spices was filling the air of the small carved out grotto.

Suddenly the small room began to fill with light until it appeared to be ablaze. Within the light one might have detected a personage, if one could have been able to abide the glory of the light and the moment!

“Jesus of Nazareth, Son of God, Arise!”

As soon as the words were spoken the glorious man was gone, and so was the light that had set the grotto ablaze. It was absolutely charcoal again. For just a short moment…

The price for the inherent sin has now been paid through His blood, His death and His resurrection.

He has Risen!  He is Alive!

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 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. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
