”…Jesus met them, saying, Rejoice! “ [Matthew 28:9]

Now here is Good News!—If you have been looking for Jesus where you expected to find Him and He’s not there perhaps you’re looking to the place of death, the tomb of yesterday—perhaps you’ve been expecting Him to show up the same way and in the same places as He did in the past!  Forget the former things—leave the past in the past—resurrection changes things and releases joy!

The resurrection of Jesus Christ grants Him the right to give His own destiny to any human being—viz. to make us the sons and daughters of God.  His Resurrection means that we are raised to His risen life, not to our old life [Oswald Chambers]  The crush and crucifying circumstances of this world have become the channel of God’s creative power of transformation—a changed life.

There may have been times in the past when you have thought to meet with the Master but by comparison all previous encounters were merely resuscitations—now is the time of resurrection and ascension of our Lord.  A whole new life—created to fulfill His Destiny—an unlimited vision—a vision that moves you from and through the powerlessness of the world into the power of the Kingdom of God.  The soul of which is to worship at His feet, the sound of which is His voice saying—”Do not be afraid, Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will SEE ME!”  The sight of Him is ultimate reality.
