Product Description

The resurrection is an event that blows your mind and it’s an event of great joy. It will make you happy and will put tears in your eyes at the same time. It will make you jump for joy and lay prostate on the ground at the same time. It will make you wave your hand and it will cause you to be still when you think of the Lord’s power. It will make you sing “Oh Happy Day” and “The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power.”

Today – Easter Day or the Resurrection – is a two-fold. It is a great day for joy, for shouting, for praise, for glory, for adoration, for worship, for giving, for coming to church, for lifting Him up; But it’s also a day for deep reflection, for emotive thought, for consideration, for emotional review, for contemplation, for prayer, for tears – it is a two-fold celebration.

As we got to this text, the events which have proceeded it set the stage for this portion of the text. Early in the morning, before daylight, Mary Magdalene and other woman named Mary went to the tomb of Jesus to anoint his dead body. When they got there a strong earthquake struck and an Angel of the Lord went to the tomb and rolled the stone away from the entrance and sat on the rock, shining bright as lighting, clothes white as snow. The guards that were assigned to guard the tomb were cowered and shaking in fear because of the angel and the Bible describes they like “dead men.”

The Angel talks to the women and says “don’t be afraid. I know that you are looking for Jesus, who has been crucified. He is not here, he has risen from the dead like he said he would.” The Angel tells the women to go and tell his followers that Jesus has risen from the dead and he’s already going to Galilee ahead of you.”
