An Angel of the Ressurrection

On the third day after Jesus was crucified on the Cross the Bible says, "And behold there was a great earthquake; for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:  And for the fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men"  Matthew 28: 2-4

As Mary looked into the tomb she saw "two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain"  John 20:11-12.  Then one of the angels who was sitting outside the tomb proclaimed the greatest message the world has ever heard:  "He is not here, but is risen"  Luke 24:6  Those few words changed the history of the universe.  Darkness and despair died and hope and anticipation were born into the hearts of men and women!
