Daily Read - Judges 8:18-9:21; Luke 23:44-24:12; Psalm 99:1-9; Proverbs 14:9-10
Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.'
I am alive and seated at the right hand of Father making intercession for you. I took your sins upon the cross and wiped them out forever. You are forgiven and My blood continually washes over you cleansing you from all unrighteousness.
I willingly laid down My life and died that you may live and have life and not just life, but abundant life. I chose to follow the perfect plan of My Father to insure your eternal future in heaven reconciled back into relationship with Him.
Like you, I had many choices and temptations set before Me, but I chose to follow the voice of My Father and walk out His perfect will for My life. My mission was clear and My eye was set on the mark of My high calling...the calling of the cross and your redemption.
Since My resurrection, many have tried to disprove the fact I am alive, but to no avail. I am the only one on earth who was buried and no one has ever been able to find My body. That is because I AM ALIVE. Why would anyone seek the living among the dead? Search as they may, my body will never be found on earth. I am glorified in heaven awaiting My Father's release to come get My bride.
I am not found dead in a tomb or grave, but I am found living in the hearts of people. My mission is simple - I came to earth because God loved you so much He sent Me to show You the way back to Him. I am His gift to you straight from His heart and if you believe I am His only begotten Son who died for all of your sins, you will not perish, but you will enter into eternal life.
There are many religions and gods in this world, but I am the only one who has an empty grave!
I am very much alive
And I have the Keys to death, hell, and the grave to prove it!
Praise God! I am eternally grateful for what You provide for Me Lord Jesus. Thank You so much for choosing to follow the will of God for Your life. If you hadn't, I wouldn't be here! Your willingness to lay down Your life and suffer unimaginable pain and suffering bought My freedom and everlasting life. It will take eternity to express my love for You. There is an empty tomb in Israel because You are very much alive not only in this world, but you are very much alive in me! Hallelujah, Amen!
