AS I have learned to rely on God for any answers , then again I would like to share death of our LORD and Saviour Yeshua on the 14 Nisan.
Please ... be patient to read of what I wrote. Thank you.
If we want to be honest with the scriptures , we have to believe it contains the truth of what Jesus said in Mat. 12 : 38 - 40
He was giving the right moment of his coming death and resurection.
He said 3 days & 3 nights.
Whatever scientists, religion pastors, chiefs , directors, so call experts in Bible studies etc... we have the exact answer from the LORD Himself.
Why can't we just accept what He said as the truth.
He said 3 complete days & 3 complete nights. Is there something complicated about the time He gave to show He was from YHWH.???
First... Easter is not in the Bible. It is a feast celebrated for Astarte and not a God's YHWH feast.
So people say that part of a day is considered to be counted a day ; Then what did Jesus say when He spoke of 12 hours in a day ?
That makes 24 hours a complete day.
We know that the day( 24 hr. ) starts at sundown. A few minutes after he was put in the tomb the Unleaven bread Feast began. They were in a hurry.
These few minutes are not to be counted as a day. We have to be honest, here. They didn 't have a few hours to work with.... no. no.
They hurried. The scriptures tell us so .
I believe that some people count a few hours of a day is counted a DAY...
If some religions want to believe that part of a day is to be counted as a day... That's OK ... then it could be, if we were to count a few HOURS of the day or half a day etc... and NOT : a few minutes ! Remember : '' they were in a hurry because the Holy day feast was to start.''
To have Jesus resurected in very early morning on the first day of the week ( sunday ) before the sun came up the tomb was already empty.
We don't have to guess. The scriptures tell us what happened.
Now... go back 3 days and 3 nights ... what day of the week are we now ?. We are thursday morning. But right there , we know that thursday morning cannot be the time of the day Jesus died. The scriptures say it was in the afternoon and Jesus died approx 3 pm.and was put in the
GROUND just before a Grand Sabbat. JN 19 : 31
It has to be on the 14 nisan and on a wednesday afternoon . Then the count is exact and true of what Jesus said prior to his death.
Again , one has to be honest of what Jesus said. If some say that part of the day he died is to be considered to be a day......
In Mat 12 Jesus said 3 d. & 3 n. in the G R O U N D . He didn't say He would be dead 3 days & 3 nights. NO !
He said He would be in the G R O U N D ( buried ) 3 d. & 3 n.
Whoever adds some people's ideas, theories, etc ... and try to match the death of Jesus Yeshua with some planetary ( eclipse ) of sun or moon....
we have to remember , as christians , that if scientists can explain the phenamenal happenings which occured that day to be with some planetary movements and
such ... then GOD the Father didn't show anything to the crowd gathered in Jerusalem that day.
We don't have to have a planetery movement in the sky but to trust that the scriptures say that from noon to approx. 3 PM there was darkness on the earth only shows that God did something strangly out of the ordinary thing in the middle of a day which is to be daylight and not darkness.
Remember the crossing of the red sea by the people of Israel with Moses. Some scientist try to match this with some wind or some shallow waters in some places .
They try to find answers from the weather, volcanoes to produce darkness over Egypte and such.... I know that some people have a hard time to attribute miracles to be the WORKS of YHWH , GOD Almighty. Some might try to explain to miracles of Jesus with some remedies, tricks, physiotherapy in muscles movements etc...
Remember the death and resurestion of Lazarus. Jesus said it was to show the Glory of GOD that Jesus didn't come and cure Lazarus before he died.
By bringing him to life was to show HIS FATHER 's Glory.
Some doctors try to explain that Lazarus was not really dead but he was in a Coma. Then the Glory of God would have been a trick used by Jesus ? Hello !
Remember the fight that Yushua, following Moses , and then he fought in a valley and then God stopped the sun to alloy Jeshua to fight and win .
Was that to be explained by some planetary stopping the sun to come up somewhere else like U.S.A. continent ? If the sun don't show up in U.S.A continent and it somes many hours too late because the sun is stopped by God somewhere in Israel for a Israel's fight. ? NO. Think of the agriculture, animals, people.
Some insects live only 24 hours ... Has the sun stopped for the rest of the world and in so saying, life has stopped for several hours. ?
The earth must have continued to turn but the sun that Yeshua saw was the light of God Himself and not the sun. It was a miracle produced by the Mighty hand of God.... The same thing happened at the death of Jesus. God's hand made that darkness was in Jerusalem for approx 3 hours. And then Jesus died.
I don't say that there was no eclipse that day, NO... It might have happened... I just say it didn't have to be explain bysome natural causes.
Then we can see the Glory of GOD acting in His SON 's death.
He was put in the GROUND just prior to the sunset. That day ( wednesday , 14 nisan ) is not to be counted because he was not put in the ground YET !
We have to start counting from when He was put in the GROUND but not of what some religious people might say about PART of a day is counted a day.
That is not what JESUS said... He said 3 days & 3 nights..
It bring us to the beginning of the 4 th day which is saturday night at sundown. That is why the tomb was already empty when sunday morning ,
The angel said : '' Jesus is alive as He has said He would be... remember when He talked to you before his death ''.
Easy for them to remember what Jesus has told them : 3 days & 3 nights .
Luk 23 : 54 - 56 give us the time. He was put in the ground prior to the beginning of a grand Sabbat which follows the Passover.
As the Passover ends, then begins the first day of Unleaven Breads which is a Holy day. No one can do any works. 24 hours.
Thursday night was an ordinary day until friday night which is the weekly sabbat day as in the commendments Ex 20 : 8 .
People had to rest because of that sabbat day ( week ). The Unleavened Breads first day celebration is not in the commendments of Ex 20.
That why it is wriiten in Luke that they were in a hurry to put Jesus in the tomb because of that SPECIAL day following the Passover.
Then after that they prepared some perfumes and such for Jesus 's body... That has to be on the friday.... and then they rested after sunset on friday night as it is ordered in the commendments of Ex: 20 ..... Nobody could have prepared some arromates, and perfumes and such things for Jesus 's body on a Grand Sabbat day or any other weekly sabbat for that matter. The only explanation to be exact and according to Jesus's words has to be wednesday 14 nisan.
People resting on Unleaven bread ( day # 1 ) and then worked on friday 2 nd day of Unleaven bread and then rested on weekly sabbat day as ordered in the commendments Ex 20 : 8 . That's waht Luke says.
I dearly hope to help by writing about the subject of the day of our LORD 's death and resurection. We have to believe what Jesus said ; otherwise He would be considered a liar. AND we all know that He is the TRUTH .
By this resoning of this sharing the word of God , I hope that I did not offend anyone. I just want to give credit for the miracles to whom it belong to. The credits go to the LORD cause He is the Maker of all things.He holds the truth in every WORDS He speaks. I just wanted to share my explanation of this miracle.
May GOD bless each and every one of us searching in GOD's Holy WORDs.
