He Is Risen!

The next day, the one after Preparation Day,
the chief priests and the Pharisees went to
Pilate. “Sir,” they said, “we remember that
while he was still alive that deceiver said,
‘After three days I will rise again.’ So give
the order for the tomb to be made secure
until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples
may come and steal the body and tell the people
that he has been raised from the dead. This last
deception will be worse than the first.”
 “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go; make
the tomb as secure as you know how.” So they
went and made the tomb secure by putting a
seal on the stone and posting the guard.
                             Matthew 27:62-66 NIV

 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of
the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary
went to look at the tomb. There was a violent
earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came
down from heaven and going to the tomb,
rolled back the stone and sat on it. His
appearance was like lightning, and his clothes
were white as snow. The guards were so afraid
of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,
for I know that you are looking for Jesus who
was crucified. He is not here; he has risen,
just as he said.”                 Matthew 28:1-6 NIV

Satan could not rule Him
Sin could not bind Him
Death could not kill Him
The grave could not hold Him
He is Risen!

  He is Messiah
The Lion of the Tribe of Judah
The Light of the World
The Lamb of God
He is Risen!

The Hope of Glory
The Chief Cornerstone
The Bright Morning Star
The Faithful and True Witness
He is Risen!

The High Priest
Judge and Ruler
He is Jesus—King of Kings and Lord of Lords and 
He is Risen!

Hallelujah, what a Savior!
