He had died. His Mission was complete. Even though the world wept, the angels rejoiced. They saw Him in His glory and they knew what He had done. They knew His Love, His great love for His children, His sisters and brothers. They knew and understood that He had done the Father’s Will. He had freely laid down His life for them.
The angels rejoiced! They would protect His body until the time had come for Him to show the world His Love and Rise from the dead. The angels filled the cave with their love and protection.
In the meantime, the world would not know. His body was assumed to be decaying, but it was not. God preserves those whom He loves and who love Him. God is love. God is truth. God is God. He is above all.
The angels rejoiced. The angels rejoiced!
