WITH GOD THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM.

WITH GOD THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM.

Mark 16: 4-8

“But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”

Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.”

 

All that they were hoping for was to enter a tomb, but on that day they entered a resurrection experience!

Do you remember that day when all you were doing was entering a resurrection experience? It was just a conversation with a Christian. You may not have expected what would happen to you.

The women had come to the tomb to honour the past, to share their memories of what had been and what could have been. Their walk was a walk of defeat.

BUT WITH GOD THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM.

There was a time when all we knew was defeat and sin, but “God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus” (Eph 2:1).

When you have been raised to a new life you no longer want to be dead again.

When Jesus has rescued us from the trauma of the grave there is a new reckless love for Him.

Women and men of the resurrection are unstoppable.

We know:

Whatever has hindered in the past need not hinder anymore.

The broken-hearted can find healing.

Those locked in a prison sentence of the past can find joy again.

Those who mourn can find comfort.

Those living in darkness can come into the light.

Why?

BECAUSE WITH GOD THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM.

The costly new tomb was given for a costly life.

The rock that was cut held the solid rock.

The big stone sealed the living stone.

The question ‘who will?’ was answered by a God who rolls stones.

They ran to the rock but by the end of the day the rock was sending them out.

They had hoped to enter the tomb but on that day they entered into a resurrection experience.

Alarmed … Terrified … Bewildered … Fleeing … Silent … Afraid.

Is this the enemy?

No, it is the effect after God has done the greatest miracle in history!

God disturbs everything because He loves everyone.

BECAUSE WITH GOD THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM.
