In the silence of the first night and the second day, Jesus body lay cold and still in the stone cold walls of a borrowed tomb. All evidence pointed to the fact that this was the end of hope for the disciples and mankind.
Yet in the stillness of what the disciples couldn't see, the spirit world, Jesus began His greatest mission. He descended into Hades and preached salvation to those in paradise awaiting His coming. He stole the keys of death and the grave and freed the captives and delivered them to the Father.
There are times in life when our dreams seem dead. They lie lifeless, seemingly broken and destroyed. It is at these times that we should rejoice in the fact that it is in this silence that God doing His greatest work and freeing the captive elements of our dreams that Satan holds in his hands and breaking our chains of bondage.
Rejoice in the stillness and laugh at the devil, because like Christ's triumphant resurrection our dreams too will be resurrected and when they are, they will encompass the resurrection power of Christ and fulfill their intended work.
