After Jesus resurrected, He started appearing to people, especially those He worked with. Acts 1:3 says, “… He showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God”. In other words, He kept on appearing to them for forty days, and continued to speak of things that concerned the kingdom of God just as He did before He was crucified. John 8:31 tells us that He did all that just to prove that He was really alive, and that we could believe in His name. He even permitted Thomas to touch the wounds on His hand and body, just to clear the doubt that Thomas had; that was something He didn’t allow Mary Magdalene to do when she tried to embrace Him at the tomb where His body was kept.
My point is, Jesus is really alive! However, He couldn’t stay on earth; His mission had been completed on earth, and He had to ascend to heaven with His glorified body to continue the assignment. Part of the assignment was to send the Holy Spirit; He particularly told His disciples that if He doesn’t go, the Holy Spirit will not come. True to His words, few days after He ascended, He sent the Holy Spirit. If you have doubts that Jesus is alive, then welcome to your moment of proofs. If He appeared to His disciples for forty days just to prove that He is alive, then this forty days after His resurrection that we just celebrated will be days of great proofs for you! Within this forty days, many of you will experience divine visitations in certain areas of your life!
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; JESUS IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER. IF HE DID IT BEFORE, THEN GET READY, HE’S JUST ABOUT TO DO IT AGAIN. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
