HE'S ALIVE!!!

It sends electric shock waves through my body! I thought I
would faint right on the spot!

The tomb that held his battered body is EMPTY!

EMPTYYYYY!!!

Death's vicious grip has come up empty handed!
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
My son HE'S ALIVE! Alive forever more! He is ALIVE!!!

Oh but He is more than just my son, my precious little boy
all grown up, touching the world with God's love...

HE IS THE SON OF GOD.

Just as the angel told me 34 years ago:


"He will be great and will be called
the Son of the Most High God."

Today, I am rejoicing like those angels who sang to the shepherds that came to visit the night he was born. They told us what had happened when they came to visit:

"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid, but the angel said to them, "Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David's town your Savior was born---Christ the Lord! Suddenly a multitude of the Heavenly Army appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to people who enjoy his favor!"


And once again I sing as I did the day I visited my cousin Elizabeth: My soul doth magnify the Lord, With all my heart I praise the Lord, and I am glad, my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. I am Blessed (favored of God) above all other women!
Except now I sing a new song! Listen while I sing:

He has turned my mourning into dancing!
He has turned my sorrow into joy!
He has wiped away my teardrops,
He has restored life to more than just my boy!

He has opened the way to Heaven!
He has shown us all the Way-
He has torn down the wall of separation,
He has taken every
sin and offense away!

He has bought us all from bondage
He has restored our liberty.
Now I understand what he told me
Whom the Son sets free, indeed is free!

He has become my Salvation!
He has become my Lord and King!
He is become my refuge and strong tower-
My God, forever I will praise and sing!

No longer the little child I carry,
When He returns again He will be
My long awaited Bridegroom I will Marry
Come! Celebrate LIFE in HIM with me!

My precious friend, My heart has done spiritual gymnastics and I have hooped and hollered and wept with joy and just wept because there were no words to express what my whole being was experiencing as I read this...It felt as if I weren't only rejoicing with Mary but as if it were the FIRST time that I knew that our Lord had arisen!!! , though it's been nearly 34 years! And I could FEEL the joy of what it will be like seeing my beloved Sister again and all my other loved ones who have left our little world IN CHRIST!

My sister had told me not too long after she was saveda and was seeing as much as the Lord would let her see and feel, what He had gone through for her from the Garden to the cross and His final words from the same. And she had sobbed her heart out and told Him" I'm so glad it's all over for You!" And he spoke back to her and said, "I'm so glad it's all over for YOU!"

The poem is straight from the HEART of Abba and helped me refocus on some of the wondrous gifts purchased for us by His precious Blood, and remembering the cost. I needed a lift and this seemed to carry me into the heavenlies!

My heart is dancing to the Hallelujah Chorus!

May the good news resound throughout humanity!

Jesus is ALIVE Forevermore!!!!!

Much love,
Opal
