The terrible and anguishing events of the Lord Jesus arrest, crucifixion, and burial was over. So the disciples went away again to their own homes.
But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; 12 and she *saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. 13 And they *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
There was no reason for Mary to weep,or to seek the Living among the dead, as she was soon to find out. Praise the Most High God, for the Lord Jesus had risen.
Oh, the depth and richness of the incomparable Word of God. Our LORD left nothing to chance in His Word, it confirms and validates itself over and over in the most wonderful, even breathtaking and startling ways.
This picture of the 2 angels sitting at each end of the empty tomb of the Lord Jesus, is just such an example. The perfect illustration of the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.
Consider this glorious paradox;
“And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony…” (Exo 25:22).
Do you see it? This is so amazing, how our Savior God confirms His Word. And we may now worship and commune with our Living Lord Jesus Christ in a new and living reality without a veil of separation hindering our way, but directly in the Holy of Holies.
