The Empty Tomb Speaks Volumes ( by Fenny West)

The empty tomb

Speaks volumes:

After your sunset

There will be sunrise.

Dead dreams can live again;

Like the valley of dry bones

Came alive again;

Like Israel was born again,

Returning to their homeland;

Like Abraham had Isaac-

Laughter- in his old age;

like Elizabeth, considered barren

bore fruit again and what more?

the forerunner of the Messiah;

like Joseph was raised from prison

and made a Prime Minister in a foreign land within 24hours;

like the Israelites leaving the House of Bondage after 430 years of slavery;

like the hope of hopeless Naomi

was not only rekindle but brought to full flame through Ruth, her daughter-in law; like Mephibosheth suddenly given a face lift beyond imagination by David because covenant spoke  for him.  The New Covenant will speak for you. And you too will rise from deadness and decadence to the resurrection life Jesus brings.

2 Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.3 And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?”4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away — for it was very large.5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.

6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.



He Rose Up! ( by Fenny West)

He Rose Up!

 When Jesus was crucified, demon spirits were in great glee…’We got Him! We got Him! They rejoiced, not knowing they had played into the hands of the Father- crucifying an innocent Man. And when the righteous demands of a just God had been accepted, Jesus had to be raised up from the dead. By the power of the Holy Spirit, on the third day, Jesus was raised up. Because Jesus rose up, we who believe in Him can rise from dead also. Our dead dreams can live because He lives.

Jesus Christ the Son of God

He rose up, He rose up

The cross could not hold Him

The grave could not stop

He rose up, He rose up


Jesus Christ the Son of God

He rose up, He rose up

Principalities and powers could not hold Him

He rose up, He rose up





If you believe in the Son of God

You’ll rise up, you’ll rise up

The winds cannot stop you

and storms cannot hold you.

You’ll rise up , you’ll rise up


The righteous may fall seven times but He rises again.

Be not afraid nor be dismayed

Jesus is the resurrection and the Life

If God be for us who can be against us

Who can be against us?

You will rise up because He rose up

31        What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

 Rise up!
