He Is Not Here. 


“And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.” Mark‬ ‭16:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬


He is not here. Jesus Christ rose from the grave so that you can live. Jesus Christ rose so that you can have power. Jesus Christ rose from the grave so that you can have authority. Jesus conquered death, hell, and the grave so that you can have victory and dominion. Mark‬ ‭16:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬ declares, that the grave that once was filled with a crucified Jesus — now it laid empty — because He rose. He conquered the grave so that you can conquer every area of your life. 


There is no grave that can hold Christ down. Death could not tie him down. Death could not defeat Him — Jesus Christ is Lord over all. He is King over all. His Authority outranks all. His Throne has no beginning or ending. His Authority has no beginning or ending. He rules, He reigns, and He has all Power, Authority, and Dominion in His Hands.


In Mark‬ ‭16:6‬ ‭AMPC, notice what the angel said to the visitors when they approached the grave of Jesus, “And he said to them, Do not be amazed and terrified; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He has risen; He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.” Do not be terrified. Fear not — there is no fear in Christ. God has power over fear. There is no anxiety in Him. Jesus Christ restores hearts and heals every heartache. He heals every form of disease. He heals every form of infirmity.


When you are in Christ, the bondage of depression can not hold you down. When you are in Christ, the spirit of heaviness cannot keep you bound. There is no bondage in Him. There is no condemnation in Him. He rose for your victory. He rose for your deliverance. Jesus Christ rose to set you free.
