“Beloved. On Resurrection Day, My angels inquired of those seeking their Savior, “Why do you seek the Living among the dead?”
And so I declare this day that you also, Dear One, are no longer among the dead, but the LIVING!
You no longer dwell in the valley of the Shadow of Death. You are no longer living in the land of darkness; in the land of death and fear and sorrow.
No, My Child. A GREAT LIGHT has dawned. Your place is not in this world of darkness, but you are a Child of Light.
I have raised you up and seated you with Me. By Grace you have been saved through faith. It is My Gift to you. You are ALIVE in Christ.
There is NO death in you because there is NO DEATH in Me. You walk in MY Righteousness now and in its pathway there is no death.
There is only LIFE, My Love, MY LIFE. I AM the God of deliverance, and to Me belong escapes from death. You have escaped the snare of the evil one.
You are FREE, Beloved. In Me, you live and move and have your being. Look to the Author and Perfecter of your faith.
No longer entertain thoughts of death and destruction, but cling to the One who has made you ALIVE FOREVER MORE!”
“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.

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 He has risen,” Luke 24:1-6.
