He Is Not Here
Why are you seeking the Living One among the dead?
He is not here. He has risen from the dead. Don’t you remember what He told you way back in Galilee? – Luke 24:6
After three dark days comes news Mary can hardly believe.
He is not here, He has risen.
I am reminded of the words spoken to John in exile years later.
When I saw Him, I fell at His feet. It was as though I were dead. But He reached down and placed His right hand on me.
The One: This is not the time for fear; I am the First and the Last, and I am the living One. I entered the realm of the dead; but see, I am alive now and for all the ages—even ages to come. [Amen.] I possess the keys to open the prison of death and hades. –
Revelation 1:10-12; 17-18
From Mary to John, to you and to me the message is powerful and clear.
He is alive!
