HE HAS RISEN

Mark 16:1-7 says, “When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome brought spices so that they might go and anoint Him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb... 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back... 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe and they were alarmed. 6 And he said to them, ‘Do not be alarmed.’ You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified. HE HAS RISEN!... See the place where they laid Him. 7 But go tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him just as he told you.”

In verse 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

Verse 19 says “So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.”

Acts 2:36-38 says, “Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God mas made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified. 37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’ 38 And Peter said to them, ‘repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, every one whom the Lord our God calls to himself.’”
