The Third Day

"On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.  In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them.  'Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; He has risen!  Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galiee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified, and on the third day be raised again.'  Then they remembered His words." (Luke 24:1-8)

The dawn of the most glorious Sunday in the history of mankind has arrived.  The darkness is over.  Jesus, the Messiah, has risen from the grave, and He holds the keys to eternity.  The power of death has been shattered.  Satan has lost and is doomed to the very pit of Hell.

And for all who believe in Jesus, the Christ, the living God, the Son, the Saviour, our Redeemer, for all who believe in Him, eternal life awaits.  Oh death where is your victory?  Oh death where is your sting?

The very hope of mankind rests on the events that took place on this third day for without the resurrection, we are all doomed.  Praise be to God, Jesus lives.  Hallelujah He is risen!!!
