    ANTIOCH MILLS CHRISTIAN CHURCH
    The Walking Dead have a message for you:
    Matthew 27:50-53 “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.”

  • Death has lost its sting

    About six or so years ago, I met a man who said he saw a dead man raised to life.
    The dead man’s name was Bob and the man who told me about it said God had told him to go to Bob’s house to pray.
    He didn’t know Bob had died until he got there, but since God had told him to pray, he figured he better do it. So, he asked Bob’s wife if he could see him.
    The man had seen death before, and Bob was dead. Even so, the man started praying because God had told him so.
