He is risen!

 The StoneHe is risen!

  “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go and anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.” (Mark 16:1-4 NIV)

“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 before 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 is risen!” (Luke 24:3-6 NIV)

    Anyone can die, but who can be raised from the grave!
    You’d think the feminist would like how God honors and respects women, wouldn’t you! showing them to see the angels and Jesus, ascended from inside the eartht But, sin and the god of this world has blinded their minds lest they believe on Christ Jesus, who “made a Way” for those who will believe. The Spirit of Truth “makes” us free! And doesn’t wrap us females up in unbecoming, slavish black wear! or indecency.
    If ‘the women’ had known Joseph & Nicodemus had already ‘prepared the body’ would they have gone to the sepulchre, the first day of the week? John 19:38-42 If they had not gone, they would’ve missed out on all this adventure! and excitement!
    The seputchre stone was sealed, and guards set watch, lest Jesus’ disciples ‘steal away the body’ and say, ‘See’ “He is risen from the dead!” Matt 27:58-28:20
    “And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.”
    “His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.” 🤣
    This depicts “the way” of politicians and religious leaders:
    “… some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money ($$$) unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. 😴
    “And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.”
    For those who ‘knew’ what happened to soldiers “who were found ‘sleeping’ on the job”, they knew this was a lie! 🤯
    This is similar to when Judas pointed Jesus out to be arrested: “Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
    “As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.” 😵 😬 John 18:4-6
    haha, the Lord sure has a Great Sense of Humor!!’ 🤣
