Resurrection Day

Happy Easter! The tomb is empty, and Christ is risen!
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” 
Luke 24:1-7

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
    O death, where is your sting?” 
1 Corinthians 15:54-55

The Lord Jesus Christ has conquered death! He died and rose again so that all who will believe on Him may have eternal life. Because of Christ's death and resurrection, we have hope! In Him we are brought from death to life.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Ephesians 2:4-9

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures...

...For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.  
1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 21-22

Dead Come Alive
An animation by Full of Eyes

I felt alone, in the world on my own,
Then You came to me, Hope flowing through my veins.
I was lost, in the black so far gone,
Then You drank my shame letting sin flow through Your veins.

Lord, You are good
God, You're so good
Lord, You are good
God, You're so good

You were there, from the start before it all,
Still You left Your throne, love lowered down in the flesh.
Born to serve, born to heal and to lay Your life
You're the final offering,
Cause up from the grave You rose.
Lord, You are good
God, You're so good
Lord, You are good
God, You're so good
Oh the miracle, You're the miracle
That makes the dead come alive

Let me take a little second to tell you as we see a prophecy that came true
You see we need to believe that He literally bled through
the clothes on his back His sweat the day was just like crimson rain
crimson stains tide bounty and the devil can't wash these stains away

Who's he you ask He's a friend of me
cause my inability He was sent from me
I hear birds and trees there all telling me
it's a good thing He won Gethsemane
cause this enemy is to much for me
and this flesh and world is triple teaming me
it seems to be the very end I scream please oh please pass this cup from me!

The thing is it did pass
and it passes every day
He took my cup from me and gracefully He drank the grave
and I don't mean to speak blasphemy when I say
but I am speaking of the day when my God passed away, Okay?

no wait wait wait no that's not it no that's not all
I don't wanna leave you hanging
this stories banging
against my throat and against these walls
It cant be contained no it wont stay in here it will thrive
cause stories just don't die when the dead come alive!

Oh the miracle, You're the miracle
That makes the dead come alive
