Forty-Days. Part-One.

From the resurrection to the Acension.

First Witnesses.

Soldiers had been placed at the tomb where Jesus was buried, the first to see the resurrection of Jesus was those soldiers guarding the tomb. Early in the morning a Angel came down from Heaven and rolled that massive stone away.

The soldiers took fright seeing the bright light and what was happening they froze on the spot and later fled into Jerusalem to report these tremendous events.

Matthew 28:2-4, 1 Peter 1:12.

Promised Return. Part-One.

The Ascension.

When Jesus ascended, after forty day on the earth after His resurrection from the dead He promised He would return. Jesus is returning for us who believe, to take us home to Heaven. He told His Disciples that he was going to prepare mansions.

It is the world who are only afraid of the Lords return.

He has Arisen. Part-Two.

Witnesses.

The amazing fact about the resurrection of Jesus was that well over five-hundred people saw Him. From His own Disciples and followers to Romans soldiers and strangers going about their daily lives.

The Romans recorded these reports methodically, wither they believed them or not. Jesus would spend forty days on earth, before he ascended back into Heaven with the promise of His final return.
