Matthew 28: 5-6
“Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen“
The phrase fear not, or be not afraid is mentioned in the bible over 100 times, When the women went to the tomb after the Passover to anoint Jesus’ body they found an empty grave. Mary was especially troubled, and the angel told her,” Fear Not”. This is not a suggestion, but a command. Our risen Savior proved once and for all that He is in control when He claimed victory from the grave. This should serve as a reminder even in these trying times that ” neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Fear not, it is Resurrection Day,and we fight FROM victory, not for victory,for He is risen!
