The Joy of Resurrection

The resurrection of the Lord Christ was distinguished with an amazing power.  He is the only One who was victorious over death by Himself.  In His resurrection, He crushed death, and arose with the power of His Divinity.  Also, by His power, He came out of the closed tomb which had a great stone upon it, without anyone seeing Him.  Also with the same power, He entered the upper room where the disciples were, while its doors were shut.  After He spent forty days with them speaking to them about matters pertaining to the Kingdom of God, He ascended to the heavens with a great power, which is against all the laws of gravitational force.  Of course, it is the power of His Divinity.
