Jesus has overcome death! Glory glory Hallelujah. The bible tells us Jesus predicted his own death many times. It says in Mark 8:31-32 And He began to teach them that the son of Man must suffer many things, & be rejected by the elders & chief priests, & scribes, and be killed, and after 3 days rise again. He spoke this word openly. On day 3 when Jesus arose from the grave, He appeared to Mary Magdalene. He said to her “Dear Woman, why are you crying, who are you looking for”? Mary thought it was the gardener . When Jesus called her by name “Mary” she clung to him saying rabbi (which means teacher). What an amazing time for Mary huh! After Mary saw Jesus, He showed himself about 11 more times to the others listed below. Check it out.
How amazing is this!? Jesus wanted those people listed above to see Him after His crucifixion. What a gift that was for them. Imagine witnessing His sad crucifixion and then seeing Him after His resurrection alive and well! I try to imagine what the witnesses above might have thought, but Glory to God, our precious Lord JESUS is Alive and Well.
In John 14:3 it says, And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
He IS our BLESSED HOPE! Praise you Jesus for ALL you have done! He will come back for us, His word says so. He will not forget about us. Keep looking up, we will be with Him soon! Come Lord Jesus!
