Jesus is risen. What does that mean? It means that the powers that seek to oppress, destroy, and kill may be able to harm the body but are unable to harm the spirit. Jesus in his appearance risen from the dead, showed that what he taught was not in word, but in reality. The powers of this world are defeated and powerless to those who are awake. The call is to new life....awake O' sleepers and Christ will give you light. We are now called to shine this light though works of compassion towards those who have been beaten down by this world. We are called to help those still imprisoned. Love the hurting, the lonely, the sick, care for the prisoner, the widows and orphans. If you have received gnosis, allow it to take further hold in you through bringing new life to those still asleep. Christ is risen...we too are risen with him!
