HE IS RISEN
Glad tidings are brought to you today, because more than 2000 years ago Jesus Christ manifested in the flesh and took our place on the cross of Calvary. He was wounded and afflicted, He was exposed to public scrutiny and He died a shameful death.
What a joy it is that His death was not the end! Jesus is risen, He is no longer in the grave, and you know what? The tomb is empty till this very day. He is risen. King Jesus is alive forevermore!
Today, all Christians are celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His perfect sacrifice has purchased our redemption. Jesus in His splendor gave His life for you and me. One misconception that is believed by many is that Jesus was under the captivity of the spirit of death, that is impossible. So then, where was Jesus Christ for 3 days? He made a 3 day journey to the pit of hell where He fought the battle that brought our deliverance today.
At the wave of His hand, millions of demons were destroyed, and on the third day the devil fell from his throne, knelt down ad surrendered the keys of life and death. Jesus emerged victorious and made an iconic statement that is recorded in the book of Matthew 28:18, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Mark 16:6-19, 1 John 3:8, Matthew 26:28, 2 Corinthians 8:9, Revelation 5:5
