The Resurrection of Jesus

Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb that they could anoint Jesus.

They arrived at the tomb saying to one another who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb. But they were surprised to see that the large stone was rolled away and the tomb open.

When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe, an angel who told them not to be alarmed. He said to them;

"Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples - and Peter - that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.” Mark 16:6-7.

All the disciples had fled, but they were still His disciples. "...and Peter..." because he had denied the Lord, but now was forgiven and still considered part of the apostolic mission. Jesus was going into Galilee, where they would see Him.

So the women went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

He is risen! He is not here!

"Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe" Mark 16:9-11.

After that, He appeared to two disciples as they walked and went to Emmaus, and they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.

Later, He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table, (and Thomas) and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.

To Thomas he said, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." John 20:29.

He then commissioned them and said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover" Mark 16:15-18.

When Jesus had finished, He was received up into heaven, "and sat down at the right hand of God" And the disciples went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

God bless you,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
