The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 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. (Matthew 28:5-7 NIV)
Believe in the Resurrection!!!
"Jesus Christ as the sinless Son of God took on the punishment of sin so that those who believe in Him can have their sins removed. Christ's death on the cross was no accident or afterthought. It had been part of God's plan from all eternity in order to conquer satan & bring about the salvation of all who believe!! Without the truth of this message, Christ's death was worthless, and those who believe in Him are still in their sins & without hope."
"Because Christ rose from the dead, as he promised, we know that what he said is true and that he is God! Because he rose, he lives and represents us before God. Because he rose and defeated death, we know we also will be raised! Christ's resurrection guaranteed both his promise & his authority to make that promise!
We must take him at his word & believe!!"
