We saw yesterday that the father of darkness, the devil, in his attempt to deny many of the truth has casted doubts in the hearts and minds of many people on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Despite the shadow or trial fact to support their lies, legacies are available that support and prove that Jesus indeed resurrected and he is alive today. One of the proofs that Jesus resurrected was the empty tomb. Bible says that the women when they visited Jesus on the first day of the week did not find the body of Jesus. They were very worried thinking Jesus’ body was stolen. However, they had comforting words from the Angel. Luke says that when the women entered the tomb, they did not find the body of Jesus. The body of other religious leaders’ rest in their tombs till date but that of Jesus was not found just after three days of burial.
Again, the strips of linen used to wrap Jesus body adds to the beautiful resurrection body. After Jesus’ resurrection, those strips of linen were seen. Peter even held it. Mostly it is what we see that we testify about. The story of the women testify that Jesus had resurrected. What they saw seemed so nonsense to the disciples but the women hit harder because what they saw was so convincing that Jesus had resurrected. Even after Jesus’, there were numerous bodily appearances of him. Apostle Paul says that Jesus appeared to over 500 people. Moreover, His ascension to heaven and the outpouring of the Holy Ghost seals this truth. Jesus died, was buried but resurrected on the third day. He paid our debt and purchased our salvation. He still offers life to anyone who desires. Jesus wants to come into your life. Give him the chance today.
