"And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold I have told you." - Matthew 28 V7

"O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?" - 1 Corinthians 15 V55

When Adam and Eve first sinned, Satan proclaimed his victory and sin brought forth death. But when Christ died on the cross and rose again from the dead, He proclaimed the ultimate victory over sin and death, and Satan was defeated at the cross. God had a bigger purpose and He fulfilled His will by saving the lost. Yes, the price paid was great. God had to send His own Son as a sacrifice to pay the price. Instead of men working their way to heaven, which is impossible with the flesh we possess, God worked out the plan and now by believing on the Son of God, men get saved. When the Angels proclaimed the resurrection of Christ, in fact they were proclaiming the greatest good news human ears can hear. Jesus Christ is risen and He invites you to enter into His kingdom by trusting  in His name. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
