Revelation needs remembering.
Luke 24: 1-8
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, ‘Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 “The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.”’ 8 Then they remembered his words.
When we misinterpret the revelation then we are often standing in places where He is not.
He had told them many times that he would rise again.
They probably either believed Jesus was meaning the Jewish thought of an end-time resurrection of all of God’s children. Or perhaps that someone would carry the spirit of Jesus on. Or maybe it was just that they had zero faith.
It is incredible to think that the disciples are not at the tomb waiting for Jesus to rise on the 3rd day. It is also hard to believe that the women who were there had their spices with them to anoint the dead body. No one was ready for the resurrection. Even though he had told them many times.
If you find yourself absent of the presence of the Lord. Then maybe you need to think again. What are you doing at this point in your life? Go back in your mind. Retrace your steps. Get out the old promises, the ones you marked in your Bible or stuck on your fridge. Remember. You may be standing in the wrong place.
