10-25-2017 Jesus Is No Zombie

“But the angel answered and said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay’” (Matthew 28:5-6 NKJV). An “angel of the Lord” opened Jesus’ tomb on the first day of the week. When the women came to His tomb, it was opened, and the angel had to say, “Do not be afraid.” Death is so final, people are afraid to think a body has escaped its tomb. There is a difference in make-believe “Zombies,” and a resurrected body. Jesus was no “Zombie,” for “He is risen,” that is, His is body lived again. The thought of make-believe “Zombies” creates fear, the actual fact of Jesus’ resurrection creates faith! “Do not be afraid.”
