Summary: The purpose of this message is to inspire you to go to the next level in God for your life. Since Jesus is alive, and He is, then if you go to the tomb you will not find him there. He is a living Christ and you cannot find him in dead things. So many th
In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
Sepulchre – represents tomb.
1 : an excavation in which a corpse is buried
2 : a house, chamber, or vault for the dead
We see here that Mary went to the tomb as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week. Christ arose on the first day of the week; on the first day of the first week God commanded the light to shine out of darkness; on this day therefore did he who was to be the Light of the world, shine out of the darkness of the grave. Whenever there is darkness, you must realize that light is never far away. It doesn’t matter how sad your morning may be; your evening will be bright. It doesn’t matter how bad your Sabbath is, your new day is coming. Because God is not far from you and resurrection is coming to your life.
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.
Many times there are satanic attacks against your life to roll stones over the doors of opportunities that will bring you to your prosperity. As we read here, the angel of the Lord is rolling the stone away and he sat upon it which means that he will never let anything come back to shut up your miracle again!
How many want your life to be open and never close again?
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.
For two days, 254 soldiers watch the grave of Christ. But when it was time for Christ to rise, HE GOT UP and the soldiers became as dead men. When it is time for you to move, the ones who are trying to block you will be as dead men.
The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church; and since you are the Body of Christ, the church, the gates of hell cannot prevail against you.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
Whenever you are in the grave, you can’t find Jesus there. A living Christ cannot be in a dead situation or grave. It doesn’t matter how long you stay, you will not see him. Those who saw him will tell you, he is not here.
And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre, at the rising of the sun.
How many of you are tired of winter and need sunshine? The Bible said the rising of the sun! When we are in darkness, light will come. Say: I AM EXPECTING MY RISING SUN! Because Jesus said that he took us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
No matter how long you have been in the dark, your RISING SUN is coming. Your prosperity is here. Defeat ends today. Say: I STAKE MY CLAIM, MY DEFEAT ENDS TODAY.
Now is the time that every dream you have will come true. God is ready to take your darkness and give you the rising sun!
You need to believe it this morning! God is ready to give you the RISING SUN!
Conclusion of the matter:
1. Your sun is about to start to rise
2. Your rising sun is about to rise
3. The stone in the door of your life is rolled away
4. The angel who is helping you to roll it is going to sit on it, so that the stone will not roll back on your life (the angels will help you in Psalm 91 – lest you step on a stone).
And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
Who shall roll us away the stone?
When you have no power, find who can do it for you. The biggest problem in this country is that people are ashamed to ask for help. They know they are sick, and they don’t look for healing. The question is: Who shall roll us away the stone? If the stone is too heavy, find someone to roll it away for you. The sooner the stone is rolled, the better your life is? ASK FOR HELP!
You men and women of God, God wants to use Pastor and myself to build such a vision to impact the world, but we need help! We are asking for help…for committed workers. When you get to the airport and the packages are heavy, don’t you ask for help?
