The Bible says, ‘The just shall live by faith…’ (Hab. 2:4; Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38).
And without controversy (beyond every doubt), great is the mystery of godliness:
God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit….i.e. He was raised from the dead (1 Tim. 3:16; Rom. 1:4-5).
If Christ had not risen, our faith would have been nullified (1 Cor. 15:12-19).
The stone in the tomb could not hinder the manifestation of the risen Christ. 
The stone was only rolled away for those who went to the tomb to go in, to confirm that the tomb was empty…. 
Christ had risen!!! 
In Acts 5, the apostles were set free by the supernatural hand of the Almighty God. While the prison doors remained shut securely and kept under the watch of the guards, the Lord made a way for them… (Acts 5:17-23).

In Acts 12 – Herod kept Apostle Peter in prison, but the church of God interceded (fervently) on his behalf. An angel of the Lord brought him out of the prison through the mighty hand of God (Acts 12:5-11).
In the Old Testament, Moses and the people of Israel had to cross the Red Sea on a dry land.
Joshua led the people to cross the Jordan River. 
Elijah and Elisha both parted the waters to walk through.
But out Lord Jesus Christ needed not to part any water, He walked on the waters…

Not even the stone at the entrance of the tomb nor the grave could stop Him!
Nothing can stop you… because Christ is risen! Jesus is alive forever more!!!
By faith, we receive the quickening of the Spirit… by faith we go from strength to strength 
By faith we attain greater heights 
By faith we spread further, getting deeply rooted in Christ, that we may bear much fruits!
Grace had always been in existence. For that grace to spread beyond generations, it had to be brought on the platform of righteousness which is a product of faith. All these are embedded in the Gospel.
Rom. 1:16-17; 4:16-17
Gal. 2:19-21
By faith, we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
By faith, we operate in the fullness of God’s power.
By faith, we live with eternity in view, conscious of and awaiting the manifestation of Jesus Christ our Lord…
By faith, we walk in victory, living beyond the realm of ungodliness and walking in the newness of life…
By faith, we receive and recover all that has been freely given to us
By faith we are raised from the dead and made to sit together with Christ in heavenly places…
