When Jesus died on the cross in Golgotha, a strange thing happened that is mentioned in only four verses:
Matthew 27:50-53, Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.
While Jesus’ resurrection three days after completed God’s plan to save and redeem men from their sins, His death showed how much power His Spirit had. His death caused an earthquake, the heavy curtain in the temple splitting without human intervention, and men and women rising from the dead! Albeit godly men and women.
Yes,these things are not as important as the result of Jesus resurrection, not by a long shot. It did show some in that day that Jesus truly is the Son of God. The Almighty, all sufficient God was in their midst as concluded by the Roman soldiers.
I am just amazed at how we can take for granted how God can make a miracle in our life but remain having little faith. Just the act of dying made those were dead, alive! Isn’t that incredible? The release of His spirit from its human shell gave out tremendous power to cause an earthquake that made brave soldiers tremble in fear and confess that Jesus was truly God.
You may know Jesus but do you really know His great power in your life? It cannot be compared to anything. You may not be experiencing Jesus’ power in your life maybe because of one thing which He repeated over and over to His disciples: a lack of faith.
That us why I tell you today, “Have faith my friend.”
