A day (on the third day) in prospect when the enemy conspired against divine plan and purpose so that what God intended to do will not come to pass but God has always been ahead of the enemy. Matthew 27:62-66. They drew their plan to work according to human wisdom and understanding but God had something in mind too. The conspirators were; the chief priest, pharisees and Pontius Pilate. What were their plans?
1. Make the Sepulchre SURE, 2. SEAL the Stone, 3. SET a watch.
The key thing that will change the order of the day and bring to shame all the plot and diabolic intentions was the RESURRECTION. Praise the Lord! Mathew 28:1-4; bible recalls that the day in question that the enemies had planned to execute their wicked plans, God made women to visit the scene for the show that will ensue. To counteract the devices of the enemy, God dispatched an angel for that particular assignment but what announced the coming of the angel from heaven with divine mandate to effect changes here on earth was a great and terrible earthquake. It was through the command of mere mortal man to seal the tomb so that the Messiah could not come out but the angel moved beyond all odds and opened the gate sealing the tomb by rolling back the stone from the door, and sitting on it.
The angel rolled back the stone of despair, disappointments, hopelessness, frustrations from finances, marriage, carrier, education, work related issues and continued to make a profound divine action by sitting on the stone, meaning no man can shut this door for it is the time of resrrection for all who have Christ as their Lord. No more shall we be kept in graves and tombs of disgrace, perplexity, pain, sorrow, poverty and lack, backwardness, bondage of sin, delays and postponements in life, struggles and mediocre experiences. No more!
The mandate carried by the angel brought about three most important things that should be well-noted, namely:
Confirmation of God's promises. Num 23:19
He settled it once and for all by opening the tomb and sitting on the rolled-away-stone indicating that never again shall my people who are called by my name be kept in situations whereby there will be no way of escape.
May the Lord favour you to encounter divine visitation which will provoke a quick and expedite action to confirm every prophetic declarations upon your life and ministry to come into total fulfillment.
