He is not here, He has Risen...
Via Hot Air---Happy Easter
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering, like one from whom men hide their faces, He was despised and we esteemed Him not.
Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him.
All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way and the Lord hath laid on Him, the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth, like a lamb that is led to slaughter and like sheep before the shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
If I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
He is not here for He has risen as He said, Come see the Place where the Lord laid.
