See Two Men in Shining Garments
Luke 24:4-6 (KJB) And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee.
It has often been said that if we were to see the spirit world as it moves about us, we would undoubtedly be somewhat frightened. Here is proof that they exist and perhaps move about us as we live in this world.
Not only did these women see two men in strangely shining garments like nothing they had ever witnessed before, but the tomb they came to where Jesus was buried was empty.
How could this be? These two events went hand in hand with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but these two women had no idea what happened. They expected to find Him in the grave like any other dead body, but he was nowhere in sight, and there stood two strangely illuminated beings. These events greatly alarmed these women. It terrified them beyond anything they had ever experienced. It moved them to prostrate themselves to the ground.
The angels began to speak to the women asking “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee.”
These questions must have seemed incredible to these two women. The angels spoke of Jesus Christ in the present tense. Their message was that He is alive, that He had risen from the grave. The angels even further attempted to draw the women in to help them recall that Jesus had spoken about His life and death and that He would rise again.
These women were shaken and bewildered as they looked for Jesus. Not only did they not understand where Jesus was, or comprehend that He was alive, to top it all off they were startled by God’s special messengers hovering mysteriously near His tomb who gave them bizarre answers for the questions they posed.
