Did you know that at that moment when Jesus died on the cross and the veil of the temple was torn in two that graves opened and other saints who had already passed away came alive and went into the town?
It tells us about this in Matthew 27
This is amazing! Can you imagine your relative – Aunt or Grandfather, brother or sister who you have mourned and buried suddenly turning up on your doorstep? This is what happened!
You see, when Jesus made that ultimate sacrifice, something significant was put in motion. Resurrection power!
Even at the time of Jesus’ death on the cross a hardened criminal died and went to Heaven and people were resurrected from their graves. Grace, mercy and the miraculous was released over the Earth.
The fact that other people experienced resurrection shows us that this victory over death is also for us. If you are a Christian and have accepted Jesus into your life the power that raised Jesus from the dead abides in you. We have victory over death because of what Jesus did. We can say to death, “Where is your victory? Where is your sting?”
Furthermore, Jesus Himself rose from the dead on the third day and appeared to Mary, the disciples and around 500 people.
Praise be to God and thank you Jesus for this indescribable gift!
