He Got Up So You Can Get Up

Matthew 27:62–65 TPT
62 The next day, the day after Preparation Day for Passover, the chief priests and the Pharisees went together to Pilate. 63 They said to him, “Our master, we remember that this imposter claimed that he would rise from the dead after three days. 64 So please, order the tomb to be sealed until after the third day. Seal it so that his disciples can’t come and steal the corpse and tell people he rose from the dead. Then the last deception would be worse than the first!” 65 “I will send soldiers to guard the tomb,” Pilate replied. “Go with them and make the tomb as secure as possible.”
Matthew 28:1–10 TPT
1 After the Sabbath ended, at the first light of dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to take a look at the tomb. 2 Suddenly, the earth shook violently beneath their feet as the angel of the Lord Jehovah descended from heaven. Lightning flashed around him and his robe was dazzling white! The guards were stunned and terrified—lying motionless like dead men. Then the angel walked up to the tomb, rolled away the stone, and sat on top of it! 5 The women were breathless and terrified, until the angel said to them, “There’s no reason to be afraid. I know you’re here looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He isn’t here—he has risen victoriously, just as he said! Come inside the tomb and see the place where our Lord was lying. 7 Then run and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead! I give you his message: “I am going ahead of you in Galilee and you will see me there.” 8 They rushed quickly to tell his disciples, and their hearts were deep in wonder and filled with great joy. 9 Along the way, Jesus suddenly appeared in front of them and said, “Rejoice!” They were so overwhelmed by seeing him that they bowed down and grasped his feet in adoring worship. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Throw off all your fears. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will find me there.”
matthew 28;1-10
Romans 8:11 The Message
11 It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!

The Guards Report What They Witnessed

11 After the women left the tomb, a few of the guards went into Jerusalem and told the chief priests everything they had seen and heard. 12 So the chief priests called a meeting with all the religious leaders and came up with a plan. They bribed the guards with a large sum of money 13 and told them, “Tell everyone, ‘While we were asleep, his disciples came at night and stole his body!’ 14 If Pilate finds out about this, don’t worry. We’ll make sure you don’t get blamed.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were told. (That is why the story of the guards is still circulated among the Jews to this day.)

Jesus Got Up So You Can Get Up!!!

I recently was told a story about a man that Owned box cars that where attached to a train..
Even though The Refrigerator was not on, His mind told his body it was and he believed it.
The Spirit of Fear
1 Timothy 4:7 KJV 1900
7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV 1900
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
;7
Believe: to think that something is true, correct, or real:
If you hear people saying the same thing long enough even though you never seen or witnessed it yourself you can develop a belief system along with the spirit of fear & it could cause pre-mature death.
Some people will chose to lie there and die instead of getting up and fighting. Which one are you?
This historical event begins with Our Savior dying on the Cross for You and Me.
1 Cor
1 Corinthians 2:6–9 NLT
6 Yet when I am among mature believers, I do speak with words of wisdom, but not the kind of wisdom that belongs to this world or to the rulers of this world, who are soon forgotten. 7 No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. 8 But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord. 9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
God prepared his son to be the ultimate sacrifice to redeem man back to himself. So No longer are we slaves too sin but Son’s to the savior.
The Cross was the method he used Jesus as the monetary base that paid for our sins. Jesus blood wasn’t on a payment plan, lease option or a stimulus package. It was a Paid in Full transaction.
The wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—his plan that was previously hidden
Even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began.
8 But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord.
John 14:6 TPT
6 Jesus explained, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through union with me. To know me is to know my Father too.
John 10:10 TPT
10 A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!
2. They Sealed It Up So Jesus couldn’t get Out. (Quarantine’s can’t seal Jesus out)

63 They said to him, “Our master, we remember that this imposter claimed that he would rise from the dead after three days. 64 So please, order the tomb to be sealed until after the third day. Seal it so that his disciples can’t come and steal the corpse and tell people he rose from the dead.

For some strange reason the devil thinks he can seal God up into some old wise fable..
The Only problem is the moment you gave Jesus your life. The devils tricks no longer had power over you.
The Song writer wrote: So many people doubt him but I can’t live without that is why i Love him So He’s so REAL to Me..
II. They tried to seal him up in a tomb by placing a large stone over the entrance.
They also had Soldiers to guard the tomb
Before the angel came to remove the rock, Jesus had already gotten up!
The angel removed the rock to prove he had risen like he said he would
What ROCk in your life do you need to be moved out your way so that you can see the Risen Savior?
Is it the rock of relationships
The rock of religion
The rock of family cares & concerns
The rock of debt & obligations
Has The Covid-19 Rock help you see the Savior? has your prayer life, worship life & Study Life changed for the better?
3. God violently Shook The earth
2 Suddenly, the earth shook violently beneath their feet as the angel of the Lord Jehovah descended from heaven. Lightning flashed around him and his robe was dazzling white! The guards were stunned and terrified—lying motionless like dead men. Then the angel walked up to the tomb, rolled away the stone, and sat on top of it!
God has all types of Angels on assignment and when this particular angel arrived on the scene he shook some things up!!
He came down from Heaven with lightning and a dazzling white robe.
The guards were stunned and terrified and they couldn’t move.
The Angel walked up to the tomb, rolled away the stone, and sat on top of the stone. (thats what authority looks like)
Mark 11:23 KJV 1900
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
So I declare that In this season
God is shaking up our faith,
God is shaking up our ministry,
God is shaking up our marriages,
God is shaking up our priorities
And be thou removed.. everything that has hindered the spiritual & natural growth of my family, My faith, my finances & my health in Jesus name…
4. He Got Up So I Can Get Up!!
4. He Got Up So I Can Get Up!!
4. Jesus got up so I can get up!!
The women were breathless and terrified, until the angel said to them, “There’s no reason to be afraid. I know you’re here looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He isn’t here—he has risen victoriously, just as he said! Come inside the tomb and see the place where our Lord was lying. 7 Then run and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead! I give you his message: “I am going ahead of you in Galilee and you will see me there.”
This Is It!!!!
Along the way, Jesus suddenly appeared in front of them and said, “Rejoice!” They were so overwhelmed by seeing him that they bowed down and grasped his feet in adoring worship. 10 Then Jesus said to them, Throw off all your fears. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will find me there.”
1 Peter 5:7 KJV 1900
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Romans 8:11 NIV
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.

Romans 6:10–11 NLT
10 When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God. 11 So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
My Translation: Jesus Got Up So You Can Get Up!!!!
