Morning Message of Motivation
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Our Lord Jesus prophesied so often about His coming resurrection, that even His enemies worried about it.
After Christ was crucified, a wealthy disciple named Joseph of Arimathea, went to Pilate and asked that Jesus’ dead body should be given to him for burial.
Matthew 27:58 NIV
“Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him.”
Joseph buried Christ in his own new tomb.
Matthew 27:59-60 NIV
“Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.”
The following day, the chief priests and Pharisees went to Pilate with haste.
They were troubled by Christ’s prediction of His resurrection.
“Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.”
They wanted to take every action in their power to prevent Christ’s resurrection.
Matthew 27:64 NIV
“So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”
So these religious leaders went out to make sure nobody could enter or exit, the tomb.
Matthew 27:66 NIV
“So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.”
They secured the tomb by placing the king’s seal on the great stone. They also had soldiers guarding the tomb.
On the third day exactly, Jesus rose from the dead. None of their countermeasures could stop Him.
You are also unstoppable by grace of God.
No force on earth can stop your progress and growth in Christ, in Jesus’ name.
