The Tomb is empty and He lives – Jesus lives today

By Chris Nwoke


Happy Resurrection Sunday!  Jesus, our redeemer lives today and he gives salvation and hope to all who come to him by faith.  Jesus demonstrated the great love of God for us on Calvary’s cross where he died that we may live.  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. St. John 3: 16.


Jesus told his disciples that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. St. Luke 9: 22.  He obtained great victory for all who believe in his death, burial and resurrection.    


Angels confirmed the fulfillment of Scripture and asked the grief-stricken disciples of Christ, who visited his tomb early that momentous morning, why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day, rise again. St. Luke 24: 3-7.


John in the Isle of Patmos received the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  Jesus said to him, I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death (Revelation 1: 18).  My friend, consider what Jesus did on the cross for us, and acknowledge your sins and repent.  He will forgive you because he cares and is willing to set you free from the bondage of sin.  Receive Jesus Christ, the risen Savior, today and live.  May God richly bless you.
