- What day was Jesus raised from the dead?
- What is the spiritual significance of the Sabbath Day?
- Does Sunday have ANY significance at all whatsoever? If so what?
- If Sunday is not the Lord's Day, when is it?
Jesus was just waking up, or just leaving, or even just left. He wasn't even there!
In Daniel Chapter 9, the prophet understood that the Lord would make Jerusalem desolate, but afterwards He would deliver the children of Israel out of their oppression AND He would usher in the Kingdom of God. Contrary to popular belief Daniel knew this! If you read any prophecy about the children of Israel being returned to the land of Israel, 99% of the prophecies also include the destruction of the world.
Let us therefore pick up Daniel at the end of his prayer (you should read the entire chapter of Daniel 9 on your own).
Matthew 3:13-17 ]
So, Jesus came in the flesh, to to confirm the new covenant. And in the middle of His week, He was cut-off. If a week is 7 years, and Messiah was cut-off in the midst, simple math will tell us how long the Messiah's ministry will be before He is killed. 7 divided by 2 equals 3 1/2 ( 7 / 2 = 3.5 ). And we know through history that Jesus lived 33.5 years.
However, His ministy did not begin until his Baptism, in order to give us a message, of the importance of Baptism.
"Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli," Luke 3:21-23
The only 'sign,' that Jesus gave us that He was the Christ was recorded as: "Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:38-40 & Matthew 16:4
|If you still believe (or have been told/taught) that Jesus died Good Friday, and was resurrected early Easter-Sunday morning, ask yourself or your teacher: What about the 3rd night?|
|This is not rocket-science, this is kindergarten counting to 3.|
And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath." Mark 2:27-28
