We, my wife Maryellen and I, have seen and stood in the empty tomb where the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ took place.
It has been documented that the land on which the tomb is located was owned by a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea.
“He is risen. Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here.”
He now lives in the living, in those who live for Him;
He now lives within those who have put their hope in Him.
The veil that concealed has been torn to reveal;
The Power that rests in Him.
There is a grace that can now be found;
Where the Love of the Father abounds.
The Spirit says “Come”, your life was undone;
But now there is Life in the Son.
The Son has said,”Come to Me all who are weary;”
He is planning your path very clearly.
He has known all along, the way you have come,
He has paid the price very dearly.
Now listen, for the Voice of the Lord is near.
He has been gathering all of your tears.
They have been kept close to His Heart,
He will never depart from you.
A new day has arrived with new freedom for you;
When you thought nothing would come true for you.
But it has proved to be wrong,
To think all hope is gone,
Because He has met you at a rendezvous.
You are cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb.
You have been raised up to be seated with Him.
The heavenly places are filled with His graces
Because He is the Great I AM.
The angels of heaven are rejoicing over you;
Where, once you were lost, but now you are found;
Because of the Great I AM.
