He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. – Matthew 28:7
This line of scripture, this truth, this moment in time is what made all the difference. Many men claiming to be gods came, walked the earth, lead with passion and captivated great crowds with their gospel – but all of them died and passed into history as mere humans. All but One – Jesus the Christ, the Messiah foretold, prophecy fulfilled.
All He said He would be He was. All He said He would do He did. He lived as a man, died as a Lamb, but unlike all the others before or after, He lived again. His body was not there, so He could be here, now, today, tomorrow and forever. Jesus is risen, just as He said!
