310. Fear Not: Jesus is Alive

jesus-is-aliveMatthew 28:4-8 NKJV  And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.  (5)  But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.  (6)  He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.  (7)  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.”  (8)  So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

These tough manly soldiers sent to ensure that none of Jesus’ disciples tried to steal His body, fainted in terror at the sight of one of God’s angels.  Yet, these three female disciples don’t appear to have moved.  I’m not sure why they didn’t fall to the ground at the sight of this angel, perhaps it was because they had all seen some pretty spectacular things as followers of Jesus and being present at countless services with Him.  But he certainly gave them a great reason not to fear.  FEAR NOT: JESUS IS ALIVE!

While the soldiers had no clue what was happening and were terrified of the natural things occurring around them (earthquakes, angelic beings with faces like lightning, a massive stone being easily rolled by this angel), and would have been further scared by his message if they heard it; these ladies were comforted.  The revelation that Jesus was alive freed them from any fear that the angelic presence and earthquake may have caused.

The revelation that Jesus is Alive is powerful enough to free anyone from anything.  Because Jesus is alive there is no longer any reason to fear for a Believer.  The reality of His present and eternal physical livelihood is all the revelation you need to get free once and for all from fear.  But what about sickness? “Jesus is alive.”  What about lack?  “Jesus is alive.”  What if they kill you? “Jesus is alive.”  JESUS is ALIVE is the answer to all your fears so FEAR NOT: Jesus is Alive.
