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 and He rose from the dead. It is like the receipt of what was purchased—paid for. It happened just like He said, and we can believe all His promises. We hold on to our receipt with faith, hope and love. 

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 will be more than conquerors in all 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. 

We can be of good cheer because Christ has overcome the world. Praise God it is not just like we say. Our words do not 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 is 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.”
