The angel announced Christ was risen, just like Jesus said. Christ’s resurrection resulted from all He had accomplished on the cross. Death had been conquered so He rose from the dead. It’s like the receipt of what was purchased—paid for. It happened just like He said so we can believe everything else He has spoken has, or will, come to pass. His promises are yes and amen and can be depended upon as we hold on to our receipt.

Seeing and understanding His resurrection makes other truths easier to accept. If something of that magnitude occurred, then surely everything Christ has said can be expected. We’ll be more than conquerors in all of our trials. Because He is risen; just like He said; He will be with us, always, just like He said; and He has gone to prepare a place for us, just like He said. Anytime we are heavy laden, we can come to Him and receive His rest and His peace that passes all understanding. When we are thirsty we can come to Him and drink, just like He said!

We can be of good cheer because Christ has overcome the world. Praise God it’s not just like we say. Our words don’t always line up with His as we continue to grow in His likeness. Even when we are faithless, He remains faithful. As we walk through difficult circumstances victoriously, we realize it’s just like He said, from glory to glory!

Matthew 28:6 “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”
