Suddenly there was a severe earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descending from heaven came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. – Matthew. 28:2-3
I can imagine the heavenly command.
All of heaven had witnessed the scene. Jesus had been beaten beyond recognition. He had been mocked, spit upon, jeered, abandoned, and nails had pierced His hands and feet. Then the cross was dropped into the ground. As the hours passed Jesus hung on that cross finishing up the payment for our sins. Until finally, He gave up His spirit.
Then for 3 days Jesus lay in the grave, while the devil, death, hell and the grave rejoiced and gloated over their supposed victory.
NOW! The Father’s voice boomed throughout the heavens. And one big and powerful angel who had been waiting for the word, bolted like lightning from heaven to carry out his task.
Roll back the stone, reveal to the world – JESUS IS ALIVE!
JESUS IS ALIVE!
