I AM THE RESURRECTION by Teresa S. Mathews




I AM THE RESURRECTION 


Jesus cried “It is finished” the Son of GOD was gone.
Satan shouted out in glee; he thought that he had won!

They took Jesus' broken body and placed it in a tomb,
His family, his friends, his disciples, all were filled with gloom.

As hell was rejoicing, loudly celebrating Jesus death,
There was a sound that was heard that made them hold their breath.

Down the corridor of hell walked a man bright as day,
He was coming to claim the keys of death and take it's power away!

Death, hell and the grave had to bow to His decree,
"Every Saint held captive here is coming home with me!"

When Sunday morning began to dawn with the brightness of the day,
The angels descended and rolled the stone away!

The One who freely gave His life so that we might be saved,
Was the One that triumphed over death, hell and the grave.

The One who made the promise, "In three days I will Arise"
Is now the One Proclaimed THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!

 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die... JOHN 11:25-26


Easter Blessings from Carrie, Bonnie and Teresa

  1. What a lovely poem, Teresa. Thank you. It made me tear up to think about the sacrifice He made, and how all seemed lost on that horrible day they nailed Him on a rugged cross. And then Sunday came and He arose! He lives that we may live also! satan dances with glee over our dark moments and when all hope seems gone Sunday comes! I'm waiting for my Sunday! Blessed Easter, my sweet twin.

    1. DIANA, I am waiting for my Sunday too! Even if it doesn't come until Heaven I'm encouraged with what Paul said in II Corinthians 4:17 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;" Happy Easter and lots of love and (((HUGS))) to you!! :-)
