He is not here

April 12, 2020

Matthew 28:1-10 explains that Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the sepulchre on the sabbath. There was a great earthquake as an angel of the Lord descended from heaven. The angel rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning and his raiment white as snow. The keepers who were guarding the tomb shook and fainted.
The angel said to the women, “Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.”
The women left with a mix of fear and great joy. They ran to tell the disciples. On the way Jesus met them, saying “All hail.” They came and held him by the feet and worshipped him. Jesus told them to not be afraid; and to tell his brethren to go into Galilee where they shall see him.

In all the years of hearing the crucifixion story, I do not remember hearing about the earthquake. When Jesus comes in the Rapture will there be another earthquake?
Did the men feel foolish for fainting? Did they know they were guarding an empty tomb? Did they ever accept Jesus as their savior?

I am thankful that Jesus loves us so much he was willing to die for us. All we have to do is accept his love, ask him to forgive us and invite him into our hearts. I am truly thankful that one day I will see him in heaven.

Here are some links I wanted to share today.
