It is no wonder that peoples, nations and tongues look at Christianity and wag their heads, knowing that by holding fast to traditions things just do
not add up. If I were not a Christian, I would probably be added to the number with those who mock. And, while on the subject of mocking, speaking
to those who do, I would have to say I can't really blame you. With so much confusion regarding doctrine, I find myself wagging my own head.
Again, being a Christian I am commanded to: "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth." (KJV-2 Timothy 2:15) Notice that this scripture declares that I must stand approved unto God, not anyone reading this. I am not
seeking anyones approval other than God, my Father.
Another wonderful truth that apparently isn't gaining much traction with some so-called-Christians and non-Christian alike is found in the same book.
(2 Timothy 3:16) "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in
righteousness." Given by inspiration of God means, God gave His Word, (all of it from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21) by revelation. The three
revelation manifestations are: Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom and Discerning of Spirits. Anyway, that info was free. Now to the subject.
It is about this time of the year that I become numbered with the waggers, scratching my head and and trying to figure out what a stupid rabbit and
"Easter eggs" have to do with the death, burial and resserrection of Jesus Christ. I'm not really seeking an intellectual on the matter but, I
thought I might, if you please share some truth about Easter. Religous folk may not like this however, I seek to please my God, not the religous.
Jesus Christ was not raised from the dead on what is referred to as "Easter Sunday." Well I just lost about 2 Billion believers. Anyway, Since we
are supposed to show ourselves approved unto God, and since all scripture is given by revelation from God, can any of the 2 Billion believers explain
how you can squeeze three 24 hour periods of time between, what is called "good friday and easter sunday?" This is an impossibility! No wonder
the world has rejected Christianity. Christianity cannot even get the death, burial and ressurection of their savior right.
Now for you religous folk listen up! I love ya'll but I'm telling you, you better get your head screwed on straight about what is truth and what is
not. Otherwise all you will see is people wagging their heads in unbelief and how can you blame them, when you try to shove lies down their
The Word of God says that the women went to the burial site on the first day of the week (Sunday) while it was yet dark. The tomb was already empty.
The Bible also says (look at all four of the gospel accounts and the book of Acts) that Jesus would be in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights. When you
have the phrase "day and night" it implies a 24 hour period. Thus there is 3 days and 3 nights which equal 3, 24 hour periods of time. We know by
revelation that it was unlawful for the body of Jesus to remain on the cross past sunset because the week of his crucifixion happened to be a week of
a special Sabboth and the Jews had to prepare for this special Sabboth. The body of Jesus had to be off the cross and in the tomb by sunset.
If these events were on a Friday afternoon before sunset, 24 hours later would have been Saturday afternoon. You only have about 36 hours before the
women went to the tomb. "HE WAS NOT THERE!"
God does not lie! God says what he means and means what He says. God says that His son would be in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights. That is 72
hours!!! And because God loves His son so much and since God does not lie God was not going to allow His son to remain in the tomb one second longer
than 72 hours, nor was Jesus going to be raised one second sooner than 72 hours.
The fact of the matter is Jesus Christ was killed mid-week on a Wednesday and before sunset on Wednesday he was taken down from the cross and buried
before sunset because the next day was a special Sabboth day. 24 hours later is Thursday afternoon, 24 hours later is Friday afternoon and 24 hours
later is Saturday afternoon a Sabboth day. Jesus Christ was raised from the dead on a Saturday afternoon before sunset. At sunset in Israel begins a
new day. When the women went to the tomb on the first day of the week while it was yet dark and found the tomb already empty, the simple truth is
Jesus had already been raised from the dead the previous afternoon before sunset,
Well anyway next year as we look at our calendars and observe the time of our Lord's death burial and ressurection I am sure that the Billions will
continue to observe "Good Friday." I will be observing "Good Wednesday!" And, a wonderful Saturday!
