The first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and Mary came to look at the grave.
And behold, a severe earthquake had occured, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.
And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
And the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been cruicified.
He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said, Come, see the place where He was lying".
And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to the disciples.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotton Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Isaiah 53: 5-6
He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities,
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all,
To fall on Him.
Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ?
Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril or sword?......
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
