THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST  

Introduction

JESUS CHRIST TAUGHT HIS DISCIPLES THE DOCTRINE OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD DURING HIS MINISTRY.

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST IS THE KEY TO ONE RECEIVING ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. 

JESUS IS THE FIRST TO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD; AND BY HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD; JESUS NOW HOLDS THE KEYS OF THE GRAVE (HELL) AND DEATH (ETERNAL DEATH).

Acts 26:23 (KJV) That G1487 Christ G5547 should suffer, G3805 and that G1487 HE SHOULD BE THE FIRST G4413 THAT SHOULD RISE G386 FROM G1537 THE DEAD, G3498 and should G3195 shew G2605 light G5457 unto the people, G2992 and G2532 to the Gentiles. G1484

Rev 1:5 (KJV) And G2532 from G575 Jesus G2424 Christ, G5547 who is the faithful G4103 witness, G3144 and THE FIRST BEGOTTEN G4416 OF G1537 THE DEAD, G3498 and G2532 the prince G758 of the kings G935 of the earth. G1093 Unto him that loved G25 us, G2248 and G2532 washed G3068 us G2248 from G575 our G2257 sins G266 in G1722 his own G846 blood, G129

Rev 1:18 (KJV) G2532 I AM HE THAT LIVETH, G2198 AND G2532 WAS G1096 DEAD; G3498 and, G2532 behold, G2400 I AM G1510 ALIVE G2198 FOR G1519 EVERMORE, G165 G165 AMENG281 and G2532 HAVE G2192 THE KEYS G2807 OF HELL G86 AND G2532 OF DEATH. G2288

TO UNDERSTAND THE TIMING OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ONE MUST FIRST UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:

  1. THE BIBLICAL CALENDAR 
  2. THE FEASTS OF THE LORD WHICH OUTLINES THE 

ETERNAL PLAN OF SALVATION OF GOD FOR MAN FROM THE PENALTY OF ETERNAL DAETH IN THE LAKE OF FIRE WHICH INCLUDES: 

  1. THE FEAST OF THE PASSOVER
  2. THE DAYS OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST DURING THE FULFILMENT OF HIS PASSOVER WEEK OCCURED JUST AFTER SUNSET OF THE WEEKLY SABBATH DAY FOLLOWING THE PASSOVER AND THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD IN FULFILMENT OF THE THREE (3) DAYS AND THREE (3) NIGHTS IN THE GRAVE.

BEFORE HIS DEATH JESUS CHRIST SPOKE ABOUT HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

IN HIS DEATH JESUS CHRIST FULFILLED ALL THE PROPHECIES OF THE PASSOVER LAMB OF GOD FOR THE REMISSION OF THE SINS OF THE WORLD.

AFTER HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD, JESUS CHRIST IN WHICH FULFILLED THE LAMB OF GOD; JESUS BODY WAS BURIED IN A TOMB TO AWAIT THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AFTER THREE (3) DAYS AND THREE (3) NIGHTS ACCORDING TO THE PROPHECY OF JONAH.

IN ORDER TO PROVE THE TIMING OF JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD AND THE TIMING OF HIS DEATH AND BURIAL AS OUR PASSOVER LAMB OF GOD DURING THE FULFILMENT OF HIS PASSOVER WEEK, ONE MUST WORK BACKWARDS USING THE SCRIPTURES ALONE FROM THE TIMING OF HIS RESURRECTION.

THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS QUOTING FROM THE SCRIPTURES THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD RISE ON THE THIRD DAY.

1 Cor 15:3-4 (KJV) 3 For G1063 I delivered G3860 unto you G5213 first of all G1722 G4413 that which G3739G3880 G0 also G2532 received, G3880 HOW G3754 THAT CHRIST G5547 DIED G599 FOR G5228 OUR G2257 SINS G266 ACCORDING G2596 TO THE SCRIPTURES; G1124

1 Cor 15:4 (KJV) 4 And G2532 that G3754 he was buried, G2290 and G2532 THAT G3754 HE ROSE AGAIN G1453 THE THIRD G5154 DAY G2250 ACCORDING G2596 TO THE SCRIPTURES: G1124

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OLD TESTAMENT FIGURES OR TYPES THAT PICTURE THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FORM THE DEAD AFTER THREE DAYS OR ON THE THIRD DAY.

  • THE SACRIFICE OF ISAAC BY ABRAHAM A FIGURE OF 

RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THIRD DAY.

THE SACRIFICE OF ISAAC BY ABRAHAM ON ONE OF THE MOUNTAINS IN THE LAND OF MORIAH WAS A FIGURE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST.

BEFORE THE LORD PROVIDED THE LAMB AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR ISAAC’S LIFE, ABRAHAM HAD ALREADYCONCIEVED IN THE HEART THAT ISAAC WAS DEAD. 

ONLY ON THE THIRD DAY WHEN THE LAMB WAS PROVIDED WAS ISAAC FREE FROM DEATH IN A TYPE OF RESURRECTION FRO THE DEAD. 

Gen 22:1-14 (KJV) 1 And it came to pass after H310 these things, H1697 that God H430 did tempt H5254 Abraham, H85 and said H559 unto him, Abraham: H85 and he said, H559 Behold, here I am.

Gen 22:2 (KJV) 2 And he said, H559 TAKE NOW H3947 THY SON, H1121 THINE ONLY H3173 SON ISAAC, H3327 WHOM THOU LOVEST, H157 AND GET THEE H3212 INTO THE LAND H776 OF MORIAH; H4179 AND OFFER HIM H5927 THERE FOR A BURNT OFFERING H5930 UPON ONE H259 OF THE MOUNTAINS H2022 WHICH I WILL TELL H559 THEE OF.

Gen 22:3 (KJV) 3 And Abraham H85 rose up early H7925 in the morning, H1242 and saddled H2280 his ass, H2543 and took H3947 two H8147 of his young men H5288 with him, and Isaac H3327 his son, H1121 and clave H1234 the wood H6086 for the burnt offering, H5930 and rose up, H6965 and went H3212 unto the place H4725 of which God H430 had told H559 him.

Gen 22:4 (KJV) 4 THEN ON THE THIRD H7992 DAY H3117 Abraham H85 lifted up H5375 his eyes, H5869 and SAW H7200 THE PLACE H4725 AFAR OFF. H7350

Gen 22:5 (KJV) 5 And Abraham H85 said H559 unto his young men, H5288 Abide H3427 ye here with the ass; H2543 and I AND THE LAD H5288 WILL GO H3212 YONDER H3541 AND WORSHIP, H7812 AND COME AGAIN H7725 TO YOU.

Gen 22:6 (KJV) 6 And Abraham H85 took H3947 the wood H6086 of the burnt offering, H5930 and laid H7760 it upon Isaac H3327 his son; H1121 and he took H3947 the fire H784 in his hand, H3027 and a knife; H3979 and they went H3212 both H8147 of them together. H3162

Gen 22:7 (KJV) 7 And Isaac H3327 spake H559 unto Abraham H85 his father, H1 and said, H559 My father: H1 and he said, H559 Here am I, my son. H1121 And he said, H559 Behold the fire H784 and the wood: H6086 but where is the lamb H7716 for a burnt offering? H5930

Gen 22:8 (KJV) 8 And Abraham H85 said, H559 My son, H1121 God H430 will provide H7200 himself a lamb H7716 for a burnt offering: H5930 so they went H3212 both of them H8147 together. H3162

Gen 22:9 (KJV) 9 And they came H935 to the place H4725 which God H430 had told H559 him of; and Abraham H85 built H1129 an altar H4196 there, and laid H6186 the wood H6086 in order, H6186 AND BOUND H6123 ISAAC H3327 HIS SON, H1121 AND LAID H7760 HIM ON THE ALTAR H4196 UPON H4605 THE WOOD. H6086

Gen 22:10 (KJV) 10 And Abraham H85 stretched forth H7971 his hand, H3027 and took H3947 the knife H3979 to slay H7819 his son. H1121

Gen 22:11 (KJV) 11 And the angel H4397 of the LORD H3068 called H7121 unto him out of heaven, H8064 and said, H559 Abraham, H85 Abraham: H85 and he said, H559 Here am I.

Gen 22:12 (KJV) 12 And he said, H559 Lay H7971 not thine hand H3027 upon H413 the lad, H5288 neither do thou H6213 anything H3972 unto him: for now H6258 I know H3045 that thou fearest H3373 God, H430 seeing thou hast not H3808 withheld H2820 thy son, H1121 thine only H3173 son from me.

Gen 22:13 (KJV) 13 And Abraham H85 lifted up H5375 his eyes, H5869 and looked, H7200 and behold behind H310 him a ram H352 caught H270 in a thicket H5442 by his horns: H7161 and Abraham H85 went H3212 and took H3947 the ram, H352 and offered him up H5927 for a burnt offering H5930 in the stead H8478 of his son. H1121

Gen 22:14 (KJV) 14 And Abraham H85 called H7121 the name H8034 of that place H4725 Jehovahjireh: H3070 as H834 it is said H559 to this day, H3117 In the mount H2022 of the LORD H3068 it shall be seen. H7200

IN THE BOOK OF HEBREWS, THE APOSTLE PAUL CONCLUDED THAT ABRAHAM BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION OF GOD AND THAT GOD WAS ABLE TO RESURRECT ISAAC FROM THE DEAD TO KEEP HIS PROMISE: “IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED”. 

Gen 18:18 (KJV) Seeing that Abraham H85 shall surely become a great H1419 and mighty H6099 nation, H1471 AND ALL THE NATIONS H1471 OF THE EARTH H776 SHALL BE BLESSED H1288 IN HIM?

Gen 22:18 (KJV) And IN THY SEED H2233 SHALL ALL THE NATIONS H1471 OF THE EARTH H776 BE BLESSED; H1288 because H834 H6118 thou hast obeyed H8085 my voice. H6963

THE APOSTLE PAUL CONCLUSION OF THE FAITH OF ABRAHAM IN THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

Heb 11:17-19 (KJV) 17 BY FAITH G4102 Abraham, G11 WHEN HE WAS TRIED, G3985 OFFERED UP G4374 ISAACG2464 and G2532 he that had received G324 the promises G1860 OFFERED UP G4374 HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN G3439 SON,

Heb 11:18 (KJV) 18 Of G4314 whom G3739 it was said, G2980 That G3754 in G1722 Isaac G2464 shall G2564 G0 thy G4671 seed G4690 be called: G2564

ABRAHAM HAD FAITH IN GOD AND IN THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD.

Heb 11:19 (KJV) 19 ACCOUNTING G3049 THAT G3754 GOD G2316 WAS ABLE G1415 TO RAISE HIM UP, G1453 EVEN G2532 FROM G1537 THE DEAD; G3498 FROM WHENCE G3606 ALSO G2532 HE RECEIVED G2865 HIM G846 IN G1722 A FIGURE. G3850

James 2:21-23 (KJV) 21 Was G1344 not G3756 Abraham G11 our G2257 father G3962 justified G1344 by G1537 works, G2041 when he had offered G399 Isaac G2464 his G846 son G5207 upon G1909 the altar? G2379 

James 2:22 (KJV) 22 Seest thou G991 how G3754 faith G4102 wrought G4903 with his G846 works, G2041 and G2532 by G1537 works G2041 was G5048 faith G4102 made perfect? G5048 

James 2:23 (KJV) 23 And G2532 the scripture G1124 was fulfilled G4137 which saith, G3004 G1161 Abraham G11 believed G4100 God, G2316 and G2532 it was imputed G3049 unto him G846 for G1519 righteousness: G1343 and G2532 he was called G2564 the Friend G5384 of God. G2316 

  • THE SACRIFICE OF RAHAB IN SHELTERING THE TWO SPIES 

IN THE CITY OF JERICHO AND WAS PROMISED THAT SHE AND HER HOUSEHOLD WILL BE SAVED FROM CERTAIN DEATH WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OVERTHROW THE CITY WAS A FIGURE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THIRD DAY.

THE SACRIFICE OF RAHAB BY SHELTERING THE TWO SPIES OF ISRAEL WAS A FIGURE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST. 

ONLY WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OVERTHREW THE CITY OF JERICHO AND KEPT RAHAB ALIVE ON THE THIRD DAY WAS RAHAB AND HER HOUSEHOLD FREE FROM DEATH IN A TYPE OF RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. 

Joshua 2:1-23 (KJV) 1 And Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Nun H5126 sent H7971 out of Shittim H7851 two H8147 men H582 to spy H7270 secretly, H2791 saying, H559 Go H3212 view H7200 the land, H776 even Jericho. H3405 And they went, H3212 and came H935 into an harlot’s H2181 house, H802 H1004 named H8034 Rahab, H7343 and lodged H7901 there.

Joshua 2:2 (KJV) 2 And it was told H559 the king H4428 of Jericho, H3405 saying, H559 Behold, there came H935 men H582 in hither to night H3915 of the children H1121 of Israel H3478 to search out H2658 the country. H776

Joshua 2:3 (KJV) 3 And the king H4428 of Jericho H3405 sent H7971 unto Rahab, H7343 saying, H559 Bring forth H3318 the men H582 that are come H935 to thee, which are entered H935 into thine house: H1004 for they become H935 to search out H2658 all the country. H776

Joshua 2:4 (KJV) 4 And the woman H802 took H3947 the two H8147 men, H582 and hid H6845 them, and said H559 thus, There came H935 men H582 unto me, but I wist H3045 not whence H370 they were:

Joshua 2:5 (KJV) 5 And it came to pass about the time of shutting H5462 of the gate, H8179 when it was dark, H2822 that the men H582 went out: H3318 whither the men H582 went H1980 I wot H3045 not: pursue H7291 after H310 them quickly; H4118 for ye shall overtake H5381 them.

Joshua 2:6 (KJV) 6 But she had brought them up H5927 to the roof H1406 of the house, and hid H2934 them with the stalks H6086 of flax, H6593 which she had laid in order H6186 upon the roof. H1406

Joshua 2:7 (KJV) 7 And the men H582 pursued H7291 after H310 them the way H1870 to Jordan H3383 unto the fords: H4569 and as soon as they which pursued H7291 after H310 them were gone out, H3318 they shut H5462 the gate. H8179

Joshua 2:8 (KJV) 8 And before they were laid down, H7901 she came up H5927 unto them upon the roof; H1406

Joshua 2:9 (KJV) 9 And she said H559 unto the men, H582 I know H3045 that the LORD H3068 hath given H5414 you the land, H776 and that your terror H367 is fallen H5307 upon us, and that all the inhabitants H3427 of the land H776 faint H4127 because H6440 of you.

Joshua 2:10 (KJV) 10 For we have heard H8085 how the LORD H3068 dried up H3001 the water H4325 of the Red H5488 sea H3220 for you, H6440 when ye came out H3318 of Egypt; H4714 and what ye did H6213 unto the two H8147 kings H4428 of the Amorites, H567 that were on the other side H5676 Jordan, H3383 Sihon H5511 and Og, H5747 whom ye utterly destroyed. H2763

Joshua 2:11 (KJV) 11 And as soon as we had heard H8085 these things, our hearts H3824 did melt, H4549 neither did there remain H6965 any more courage H7307 in any man, H376 because H6440 of you: for the LORD H3068 your God, H430 he is God H430 in heaven H8064 above, H4605 and in earth H776 beneath.

Joshua 2:12 (KJV) 12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear H7650 unto me by the LORD, H3068 since H3588 I have shewed H6213 you kindness, H2617 that ye will also shew H6213 kindness H2617 unto my father’s H1 house, H1004 and give H5414 me a true H571 token: H226

Joshua 2:13 (KJV) 13 And that ye will save alive H2421 my father, H1 and my mother, H517 and my brethren, H251 and my sisters, H269 and all that they have, and deliver H5337 our lives H5315 from death. H4194

Joshua 2:14 (KJV) 14 And the men H582 answered H559 her, Our life H5315 for yours, H4191 if ye utter H5046 not this our business. H1697 And it shall be, when the LORD H3068 hath given H5414 us the land, H776 that we will deal H6213 kindly H2617 and truly H571 with thee.

Joshua 2:15 (KJV) 15 Then she let them down H3381 by a cord H2256 through H1157 the window: H2474 for her house H1004 was upon the town H7023 wall, H2346 and she dwelt H3427 upon the wall. H2346

Joshua 2:16 (KJV) 16 And she said H559 unto them, Get H3212 you to the mountain, H2022 lest the pursuers H7291 meet H6293 you; and hide H2247 yourselves there three H7969 days, H3117 until the pursuers H7291 be returned: H7725 and afterward H310 may ye go H3212 your way. H1870

Joshua 2:17 (KJV) 17 And the men H582 said H559 unto her, We will be blameless H5355 of this thine oath H7621 which thou hast made us swear. H7650

Joshua 2:18 (KJV) 18 Behold, when we come H935 into the land, H776 THOU SHALT BIND H7194 THIS LINE H8615 OF SCARLET H8144 THREAD H2339 IN THE WINDOW H2474 WHICH THOU DIDST LET US DOWN BY: H3381 AND THOU SHALT BRING H622 THY FATHER, H1 AND THY MOTHER, H517 AND THY BRETHREN, H251 AND ALL THY FATHER’S H1 HOUSEHOLD, H1004 HOME H1004 UNTO THEE.

Joshua 2:19 (KJV) 19 And it shall be, that whosoever H834 shall go out H3318 of the doors H1817 of thy house H1004 into the street, H2351 his blood H1818 shall be upon his head, H7218 and we will be guiltless: H5355 and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, H1004 his blood H1818 shall be on our head, H7218 if any hand H3027 be upon him.

Joshua 2:20 (KJV) 20 And if thou utter H5046 this our business, H1697 then we will be quit H5355 of thine oath H7621 which thou hast made us to swear. H7650

Joshua 2:21 (KJV) 21 And she said, H559 According unto your words, H1697 so be it. And she sent them away, H7971 and they departed: H3212 and she bound H7194 the scarlet H8144 line H8615 in the window. H2474

HAD THE TWO WITNESSES NOT RETURN ALIVE AFTER THE THREE DAYS TO JOSHUA THEN THE PROMISE MADE TO RAHAB WOULD NOT HAVE COME THROUGH AND SHE AND HER HOUSEHOLD WOULD HAVE FACED CERTAIN DEATH WHEN THE CITY OF JERICHO WAS DESTROYED. THIS WAS A TYPE OF RESURRECTION OF RAHAB ABD HER HOUSEHOLD.

Joshua 2:22-24 (KJV) 22 And they went, H3212 and came H935 unto the mountain, H2022 and abode H3427 there three H7969 days, H3117 until the pursuers H7291 were returned: H7725 and the pursuers H7291 sought H1245 them throughout all the way, H1870 but found H4672 them not. 

Joshua 2:23 (KJV) 23 So the two H8147 men H582 returned, H7725 and descended H3381 from the mountain, H2022 and passed over, H5674 and came H935 to Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Nun, H5126 and told H5608 him all things that befell H4672 them:

Joshua 2:24 (KJV) 24 And they said H559 unto Joshua, H3091 Truly H3588 the LORD H3068 hath delivered H5414 into our hands H3027 all the land; H776 for even all the inhabitants H3427 of the country H776 do faint H4127 because H6440 of us.

Joshua 6:17 (KJV) And the city H5892 shall be accursed, H2764 even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: H3068 only Rahab H7343 the harlot H2181 shall live, H2421 she and all that are with her in the house, H1004 because she hid H2244 the messengers H4397 that we sent. H7971

Joshua 2:25 (KJV) Likewise G3668 G1161 also G2532 was G1344 not G3756 Rahab G4460 the harlot G4204 justified G1344 by G1537 works, G2041 when she had received G5264 the messengers, G32 and G2532 had sent them out G1544 another G2087 way? G35

Heb 11:30-31 (KJV) 30 By faith G4102 the walls G5038 of Jericho G2410 fell down, G4098 after they were compassed G2944 about G1909 seven G2033 days. G2250

Heb 11:31 (KJV) 31 By faith G4102 the harlot G4204 Rahab G4460 perished G4881 not G3756 with them that believed not, G544 when she had received G1209 the spies G2685 with G3326 peace. G1515

  • THE HIDING OF DAVID BY JONATHAN FROM THE TABLE OF 

KING SAUL FOR THREE DAYS TO KNOW THE HEART OF SAUL WAS A FIGURE OR TYPE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THIRD DAY.

HAD DAVID APPEARED AT THE TABLE OF SAUL HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD AND ONLY ON THE THIRD DAY DID HE KNOW WHAT WAS THE INTENT OF KING SAUL TO TAKE HIS LIFE.

1 Sam 20:5-7 (KJV) 5 And David H1732 said H559 unto Jonathan, H3083 Behold, tomorrow H4279 is the new moon, H2320 and I should not fail H3427 to sit H3427 with the king H4428 at meat: H398 but let me go, H7971 THAT I MAY HIDE H5641 MYSELF IN THE FIELD H7704 UNTO THE THIRD H7992 DAY AT EVEN. H6153

1 Sam 20:6 (KJV) 6 If thy father H1 at all H6485 miss H6485 me, then say, H559 David H1732 earnestly H7592 asked H7592 leave of me that he might run H7323 to Bethlehem H1035 his city: H5892 for there is a yearly H3117 sacrifice H2077 there for all the family. H4940

1 Sam 20:7 (KJV) 7 If he say H559 thus, It is well; H2896 thy servant H5650 shall have peace: H7965 BUT IF HE BE VERY H2734 WROTH, H2734 THEN BE SURE H3045 THAT EVIL H7451 IS DETERMINED H3615 BY HIM.

1 Sam 20:24-35 (KJV) 24 So David H1732 hid H5641 himself in the field: H7704 and when the new moon H2320 was come, the king H4428 sat him down H3427 to eat H398 meat. H3899

1 Sam 20:25 (KJV) 25 And the king H4428 sat H3427 upon his seat, H4186 as at other times, H6471 even upon a seat H4186 by the wall: H7023 and Jonathan H3083 arose, H6965 and Abner H74 sat H3427 by Saul’s H7586 side, H6654 AND DAVID’S H1732 PLACE H4725 WAS EMPTY. H6485

1 Sam 20:26 (KJV) 26 Nevertheless Saul H7586 spake H1696 not anything H3972 that day: H3117 for he thought, H559 Something hath befallen H4745 him, he is not H1115 clean; H2889 surely he is not clean. H2889

1 Sam 20:27 (KJV) 27 And it came to pass on the morrow, H4283 which was the second H8145 day of the month, H2320 that DAVID’S H1732 PLACE H4725 WAS EMPTY: H6485 and Saul H7586 said H559 unto Jonathan H3083 his son, H1121 Wherefore cometh H935 not the son H1121 of Jesse H3448 to meat, H3899 neither yesterday, H8543 nor to day? H3117

1 Sam 20:28 (KJV) 28 And Jonathan H3083 answered H6030 Saul, H7586 David H1732 earnestly H7592 asked H7592 leave of me H5978 to go to Bethlehem: H1035

1 Sam 20:29 (KJV) 29 And he said, H559 Let me go, H7971 I pray thee; for our family H4940 hath a sacrifice H2077 in the city; H5892 and my brother, H251 he hath commanded H6680 me to be there: and now, if I have found H4672 favour H2580 in thine eyes, H5869 let me get away, H4422 I pray thee, and see H7200 my brethren. H251 Therefore he cometh H935 not unto the king’s H4428 table. H7979

1 Sam 20:30 (KJV) 30 Then Saul’s H7586 anger H639 was kindled H2734 against Jonathan, H3083 and he said H559 unto him, Thou son H1121 of the perverse H5753 rebellious H4780 woman, do not I know H3045 that thou hast chosen H977 the son H1121 of Jesse H3448 to thine own confusion, H1322 and unto the confusion H1322 of thy mother’s H517 nakedness? H6172

1 Sam 20:31 (KJV) 31 FOR AS LONG AS H3117 THE SON H1121 OF JESSE H3448 LIVETH H2425 UPON THE GROUND, H127 THOU SHALT NOT BE ESTABLISHED, H3559 NOR THY KINGDOM. H4438 WHEREFORE NOW SEND H7971 AND FETCH H3947 HIM UNTO ME, FOR HE SHALL SURELY DIE. H1121 H4194

1 Sam 20:32 (KJV) 32 And Jonathan H3083 answered H6030 Saul H7586 his father, H1 and said H559 unto him, WHEREFORE SHALL HE BE SLAIN? H4191 WHAT HATH HE DONE? H6213

1 Sam 20:33 (KJV) 33 AND SAUL H7586 CAST H2904 A JAVELIN H2595 AT HIM TO SMITE H5221 HIM: WHEREBY JONATHAN H3083 KNEW H3045 THAT IT WAS DETERMINED H3617 OF HIS FATHER H1 TO SLAY H4191 DAVID. H1732

1 Sam 20:34 (KJV) 34 So Jonathan H3083 arose H6965 from the table H7979 in fierce H2750 anger, H639 and did eat H398 no meat H3899 the second H8145 day H3117 of the month: H2320 for he was grieved H6087 for David, H1732 because his father H1 had done him shame. H3637

DAVID’S DELIVERANCE FROM THE DEATHOF SAUL ON THE THIRD DAY AS A FIGURE OR TYPE OF THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD OF JESUS CHRIST.

1 Sam 20:35-42 (KJV) 35 And it came to pass in the morning, H1242 that Jonathan H3083 went out H3318 into the field H7704 AT THE TIME APPOINTED H4150 with David, H1732 and a little H6996 lad H5288 with him.

1 Sam 20:36 (KJV) 36 And he said H559 unto his lad, H5288 Run, H7323 find out H4672 now the arrows H2671 which I shoot. H3384 And as the lad H5288 ran, H7323 he shot H3384 an arrow H2678 beyond H5674 him.

1 Sam 20:37 (KJV) 37 And when the lad H5288 was come H935 to the place H4725 of the arrow H2678 which Jonathan H3083 had shot, H3384 Jonathan H3083 cried H7121 after H310 the lad, H5288 and said, H559 IS NOT THE ARROW H2678 BEYOND H1973 THEE?

1 Sam 20:38 (KJV) 38 And Jonathan H3083 cried H7121 after H310 the lad, H5288 Make speed, H4120 haste, H2363 stay H5975 not. And Jonathan’s H3083 lad H5288 gathered up H3950 the arrows, H2671 H2678 and came H935 to his master. H113

1 Sam 20:39 (KJV) 39 But the lad H5288 knew H3045 not anything: H3972 only Jonathan H3083 and David H1732 knew H3045 the matter. H1697

1 Sam 20:40 (KJV) 40 And Jonathan H3083 gave H5414 his artillery H3627 unto his lad, H5288 and said H559 unto him, Go, H3212 carry H935 them to the city. H5892

1 Sam 20:41 (KJV) 41 And as soon as the lad H5288 was gone, H935 David H1732 arose H6965 out of a place toward H681 the south, H5045 and fell H5307 on his face H639 to the ground, H776 and bowed H7812 himself three H7969 times: H6471 and they kissed H5401 one H376 another, H7453 and wept H1058 one H376 with another, H7453 until David H1732 exceeded. H1431

1 Sam 20:42 (KJV) 42 And Jonathan H3083 said H559 to David, H1732 Go H3212 in peace, H7965 forasmuch as we have sworn H7650 both H8147 of us in the name H8034 of the LORD, H3068 saying, H559 The LORD H3068 be between me and thee, and between my seed H2233 and thy seed H2233 for H5704 ever. H5769 And he arose H6965 and departed: H3212 and Jonathan H3083 went H935 into the city. H5892

  • THE SACRIFICE OF ESTER GOING BEFORE THE KING AND 

KNOWING THAT SHOULD THE KING NOT ACCEPT HER BY EXTENSION OF THE SCEPTRE, WOULD RESULT IN CERTAIN DEATH WAS A FIGURE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THIRD DAY.

THE SACRIFICE OF ESTER BY GOING BEFORE THE KING WITHOUT BEING CALLED ON BEHALF OF THE JEWS WAS A FIGURE OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST. 

WHEN THE KING EXTENDED HIS SCEPTRE ON THE THIRD DAY WAS THE ONLY TIME ESTER WAS FREE FROM THE PENALTY OF DEATH WHICH WAS A TYPE OF RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. 

Ester 4:7-17 (KJV) 7 And Mordecai H4782 told H5046 him of all that had happened H7136 unto him, and of the sum H6575 of the money H3701 that Haman H2001 had promised H559 to pay H8254 to the king’s H4428 treasuries H1595 for the Jews, H3064 to destroy H6 them.

Ester 4:8 (KJV) 8 Also he gave H5414 him the copy H6572 of the writing H3791 of the decree H1881 that was given H5414 at Shushan H7800 to destroy H8045 them, to shew H7200 it unto Esther, H635 and to declare H5046 it unto her, and to charge H6680 her that she should go in H935 unto the king, H4428 to make supplication H2603 unto him, and to make request H1245 before H6440 him for her people. H5971

Ester 4:9 (KJV) 9 And Hatach H2047 came H935 and told H5046 Esther H635 the words H1697 of Mordecai. H4782

Ester 4:10 (KJV) 10 Again Esther H635 spake H559 unto Hatach, H2047 and gave him commandment H6680 unto Mordecai; H4782

Ester 4:11 (KJV) 11 All the king’s H4428 servants, H5650 and the people H5971 of the king’s H4428 provinces, H4082 do know, H3045 that whosoever, whether man H376 or woman, H802 shall come H935 unto the king H4428 into the inner H6442 court, H2691 who is not called, H7121 there is one H259 law H1881 of his to put him to death, H4191 except H905 such to whom the king H4428 shall hold out H3447 the golden H2091 sceptre, H8275 that he may live: H2421 but I have not been called H7121 to come in H935 unto the king H4428 these thirty H7970 days. H311

Ester 4:12 (KJV) 12 And they told H5046 to Mordecai H4782 Esther’s H635 words. H1697

Ester 4:13 (KJV) 13 Then Mordecai H4782 commanded H559 to answer H7725 Esther, H635 Think H1819 not with thyself H5315 that thou shalt escape H4422 in the king’s H4428 house, H1004 more than all the Jews. H3064

Ester 4:14 (KJV) 14 For if thou altogether H2790 holdest thy peace H2790 at this time, H6256 then shall there enlargement H7305 and deliverance H2020 arise H5975 to the Jews H3064 from another H312 place; H4725 but thou and thy father’s H1 house H1004 shall be destroyed: H6 and who knoweth H3045 whether thou art come H5060 to the kingdom H4438 for such a time H6256 as this?

Ester 4:15 (KJV) 15 Then Esther H635 bade H559 them return H7725 Mordecai H4782 this answer,

Ester 4:16 (KJV) 16 Go, H3212 gather together H3664 all the Jews H3064 that are present H4672 in Shushan, H7800 and fast H6684 ye for me, and neither eat H398 nor drink H8354 three H7969 days, H3117 night H3915 or day: H3117 I also and my maidens H5291 will fast H6684 likewise; and so H3651 will I go H935 in unto the king, H4428 which is not according to the law: H1881 and if I perish, H6 I perish. H6

Ester 4:17 (KJV) 17 So Mordecai H4782 went his way, H5674 and did H6213 according to all that Esther H635 had commanded H6680 him.

WHEN THE KING EXTENDED THE GOLDEN SCEPTRE IN HIS HAND ESTER RECEIVED A FIGURE OR TYPE OF JESUS CHRIST THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. 

UNTIL THE KING EXTENDED THE GOLDEN SCEPTRE IN HIS HAND ESTER WAS PHYSICALLY DEAD. 

Ester 5:1-3 (KJV) 1 Now it came to pass on THE THIRD H7992 DAY, H3117 that Esther H635 put on H3847 her royal H4438 apparel, and stood H5975 in the inner H6442 court H2691 of the king’s H4428 house, H1004 over against H5227 the king’s H4428 house: H1004 and the king H4428 sat H3427 upon his royal H4438 throne H3678 in the royal H4438 house, H1004 over against H5227 the gate H6607 of the house. H1004 

Ester 5:2 (KJV) 2 AND IT WAS SO, WHEN THE KING H4428 SAW H7200 ESTHER H635 THE QUEEN H4436 STANDING H5975 IN THE COURT, H2691 THAT SHE OBTAINED H5375 FAVOUR H2580 IN HIS SIGHT: H5869 AND THE KING H4428 HELD OUT H3447 TO ESTHER H635 THE GOLDEN H2091 SCEPTRE H8275 THAT WAS IN HIS HAND. H3027 SO ESTHER H635 DREW NEAR, H7126 AND TOUCHED H5060 THE TOP H7218 OF THE SCEPTRE. H8275 

Ester 5:3 (KJV) 3 Then said H559 the king H4428 unto her, What wilt thou, queen H4436 Esther? H635 and what is thy request? H1246 it shall be even given H5414 thee to the half H2677 of the kingdom. H4438 

  • THE SICKNESS AND DEATH PRONOUNCED BY THE LORD 

ON KING HEZEKIAH AND THE EXTENSION OF  HIS LIFE FOR FIFTEEN (15) MORE YEARS WAS A FIGURE OF RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THIRD DAY.

THE LORD GOD PRONOUNCED ON HEZEKIAH THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DIE OF THE SICKNESS HE HAD.

HEZEKIAH RECEIVED A TYPE OF RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD FROM THE LORD ON THE THIRD DAY.

2 King 20:1-7 (KJV) 1 IN THOSE DAYS H3117 WAS HEZEKIAH H2396 SICK H2470 UNTO DEATH. H4191 And the prophet H5030 Isaiah H3470 the son H1121 of Amoz H531 came H935 to him, and said H559 unto him, THUS SAITH H559 THE LORD, H3068 SET THINE HOUSE H1004 IN ORDER; H6680 FOR THOU SHALT DIE, H4191 AND NOT LIVE. H2421

2 King 20:2 (KJV) 2 Then he turned H5437 his face H6440 to the wall, H7023 and prayed H6419 unto the LORD, H3068 saying, H559

2 King 20:3 (KJV) 3 I beseech H577 thee, O LORD, H3068 remember H2142 now how I have walked H1980 before H6440 thee in truth H571 and with a perfect H8003 heart, H3824 and have done H6213 that which is good H2896 in thy sight. H5869 And Hezekiah H2396 wept H1058 H1065 sore. H1419

2 King 20:4 (KJV) 4 And it came to pass, afore Isaiah H3470 was gone out H3318 into the middle H8484 court, H2691 H5892 that the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came to him, saying, H559

2 King 20:5 (KJV) 5 Turn again, H7725 and tell H559 Hezekiah H2396 the captain H5057 of my people, H5971 Thus saith H559 the LORD, H3068 the God H430 of David H1732 thy father, H1 I have heard H8085 thy prayer, H8605 I have seen H7200 thy tears: H1832 behold, I will heal H7495 thee: ON THE THIRD H7992 DAY H3117 THOU SHALT GO UP H5927 UNTO THE HOUSE H1004 OF THE LORD. H3068

2 King 20:6 (KJV) 6 AND I WILL ADD H3254 UNTO THY DAYS H3117 FIFTEEN H2568 H6240 YEARS; H8141 and I will deliver H5337 thee and this city H5892 out of the hand H3709 of the king H4428 of Assyria; H804 and I will defend H1598 this city H5892 for mine own sake, and for my servant H5650 David’s H1732 sake.

2 King 20:7 (KJV) 7 And Isaiah H3470 said, H559 Take H3947 a lump H1690 of figs. H8384 And they took H3947 and laid H7760 it on the boil, H7822 and he recovered. H2421

2 King 20:8 (KJV) 8 And Hezekiah H2396 said H559 unto Isaiah, H3470 What shall be the sign H226 that the LORD H3068 will heal H7495 me, AND THAT I SHALL GO UP H5927 INTO THE HOUSE H1004 OF THE LORD H3068 THE THIRD H7992 DAY? H3117

2 King 20:9 (KJV) 9 And Isaiah H3470 said, H559 This sign H226 shalt thou have of the LORD, H3068 that the LORD H3068 will do H6213 the thing H1697 that he hath spoken: H1696 shall the shadow H6738 go forward H1980 ten H6235 degrees, H4609 or go back H7725 ten H6235 degrees? H4609

2 King 20:10 (KJV) 10 And Hezekiah H3169 answered, H559 It is a light thing H7043 for the shadow H6738 to go down H5186 ten H6235 degrees: H4609 nay, but let the shadow H6738 return H7725 backward H322 ten H6235 degrees. H4609

2 King 20:11 (KJV) 11 And Isaiah H3470 the prophet H5030 cried H7121 unto the LORD: H3068 and he brought H7725 the shadow H6738 ten H6235 degrees H4609 backward, H322 by H4609 which it had gone down H3381 in the dial H4609 of Ahaz. H271

Isa 38:17 (KJV) 17 Behold, for peace H7965 I had great bitterness: H4751 H4843 but thou hast in love H2836 to my soul H5315 delivered it from the pit H7845 of corruption: H1097 for thou hast cast H7993 all my sins H2399 behind H310 thy back. H1460

THE DEAD CANNOT PRAISE OR CELEBRATE GOD IN THE GRAVE AND HAVE NO CONSCIOUSNESS TO PRAISE GOD.

Isa 38:18-19 (KJV) 19 FOR THE GRAVE H7585 CANNOT PRAISE H3034 THEE, DEATH H4194 CANNOT CELEBRATE H1984 THEE: THEY THAT GO DOWN H3381 INTO THE PIT H953 CANNOT HOPE H7663 FOR THY TRUTH. H571

Isa 38:19 (KJV) 19 THE LIVING, H2416 THE LIVING, H2416 HE SHALL PRAISE H3034 THEE, AS I DO THIS DAY: H3117 the father H1 to the children H1121 shall make known H3045 thy truth. H571

  • DID THE ANGEL OF GOD REVEALED TO THE PROPHET DANIEL THAT THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD?

THE PROPHET DANIEL PROPHESIED ABOUT THE COMING RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD IN JESUS CHRIST.

DANIEL HIMSELF WAS TO AWAIT THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

Dan 12:1-2 (KJV) 1 And at that time H6256 shall Michael H4317 stand up, H5975 the great H1419 prince H8269 which standeth H5975 for the children H1121 of thy people: H5971 and there shall be H1961 a time H6256 of trouble, H6869 such as never was since there was a nation H1471 even to that same time: H6256 AND AT THAT TIME H6256 THY PEOPLE H5971 SHALL BE DELIVERED, H4422 EVERY ONE THAT SHALL BE FOUND H4672 WRITTEN H3789 IN THE BOOK. H5612

  • DID GOD THE WORD WHO BECAME JESUS CHRIST REVEALED THAT NO MAN HAD ASCENDED INTO THE HEAVEN WHEN HE CAME IN THE FLESH?

WHEN GOD THE WORD WHO BECAME JESUS CHRIST CAME IN THE FLESH, HE DECLARED THAT NO MAN HAD ASCENDED INTO THE HEAVEN AT THE THRONE OF GOD THE FATHER.

THIS CONFIRMS THAT THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD AND, IN THEIR GRAVES, STILL AWAITING A RESURRECTION FOR THE DEAD.

John 1:18 (KJV) NO MAN G3762 HATH SEEN G3708 GOD G2316 AT ANY TIME; G4455 the only begotten G3439 Son, G5207 which G3588 is G5607 in G1519 the bosom G2859 of the Father, G3962 he G1565 hath declared G1834 him.

John 3:13 (KJV) And G2532 NO MAN G3762 HATH ASCENDED UP G305 TO G1519 HEAVEN, G3772 but G1508 he that came down G2597 from G1537 heaven, G3772 even the Son G5207 of man G444 which G3588 is G5607 in G1722 heaven. G3772

John 5:37 (KJV) And G2532 the Father G3962 himself, G846 which hath sent G3992 me, G3165 hath borne witness G3140 of G4012 me. G1700 YE HAVE G191 NEITHER G3777 HEARD G191 HIS G846 VOICE G5456 AT ANY TIME, G4455 NOR G3777 SEEN G3708 HIS G846 SHAPE. G1491

THE APOSTLE PETER STATED THAT KING DAVID WAS STILL AWAITING A RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. 

Acts 2:29-34 (KJV) 29 Men G435 and brethren, G80 let G2036 me G1832 freely G3326 G3954 speak G2036 unto G4314 you G5209 of G4012 THE PATRIARCH G3966 DAVID, G1138 THAT G3754 HE IS G5053 BOTH G2532 DEAD G5053 AND G2532 BURIED, G2290 AND G2532 HIS G846 SEPULCHRE G3418 IS G2076 WITH G1722 US G2254 UNTO G891 THIS G5026 DAY. G2250

Acts 2:30 (KJV) 30 Therefore G3767 being G5225 a prophet, G4396 and G2532 knowing G1492 that G3754 God G2316 had sworn G3660 with an oath G3727 to him, G846 that of G1537 the fruit G2590 of his G846 loins, G3751 according to G2596 the flesh, G4561 he would raise up G450 Christ G5547 to sit G2523 on G1909 his G846 throne; G2362

Acts 2:31 (KJV) 31 He seeing this before G4275 spake G2980 of G4012 the resurrection G386 of Christ, G5547 that G3754 his G846 soul G5590 was G2641 not G3756 left G2641 in G1519 hell, G86 neither G3761 his G846 flesh G4561 did see G1492 corruption. G1312 

Acts 2:32 (KJV) 32 This G5126 Jesus G2424 hath G450 God G2316 raised up, G450 whereof G3739 we G2249 all G3956 are G2070 witnesses. G314 

Acts 2:33 (KJV) 33 Therefore G3767 being G5312 by the right hand G1188 of God G2316 exalted, G5312 and G5037 having received G2983 of G3844 the Father G3962 the promise G1860 of the Holy G40 Ghost, G4151 he hath shed forth G1632 this, G5124 which G3739 ye G5210 now G3568 see G991 and G2532 hear. G191 

Acts 2:34 (KJV) 34 FOR G1063 DAVID G1138 IS NOT G3756 ASCENDED G305 INTO G1519 THE HEAVENS: G3772 but G1161 he saith G3004 himself, G846 The LORD G2962 said G2036 unto my G3450 Lord, G2962 Sit thou G2521 on G1537 my G3450 right hand, G1188 

  • DID JESUS CHRIST TEACH THE DOCTRINE OF THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD?

WHEN JESUS CHRIST CAME IN THE FLESH, HE TAUGHT THE DOCTRINE OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD AND REVEALED THE TRUTH ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD.

Matt 22:25 (KV) 25 Now G1161 there were G2258 with G3844 us G2254 seven G2033 brethren: G80 and G2532 the first, G4413 when he had married a wife, G1060 deceased, G5053 and, G2532 having G2192 no G3361 issue, G4690 left G863 his G846 wife G1135 unto his G846 brother: G80

Matt 22:28 (KV) 28 Therefore G3767 in G1722 the resurrection G386 whose G5101 wife G1135 shall she be G2071 of the seven? G2033 for G1063 they all G3956 had G2192 her. G846

Matt 22:29 (KV) 29 Jesus G2424 answered G611 and G1161 said G2036 unto them, G846 YE DO ERR, G4105 NOT G3361 KNOWING G1492 THE SCRIPTURES, G1124 nor G3366 the power G1411 of God. G2316

  • WHICH RESURRECTION DID JESUS CHRIST PERFORM WHEN HE RESURRECTED LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD TO PHYSICAL LIFE? 

WHEN JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTED LAZARUS TO PHYICAL LIFE; HE PERFORMED WHAT IS CALLED THE SECOND RESURRECTION IN REVELATION 20:11-13. 

THIS IS THE RESURRECTION TO PHYSICAL LIFE OF THE REST OF HE DEAD WHO WAS NOT IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION AS STATED IN REVELATION 20:5.

WHILE IN THE FLESH JESUS CHRIST COULD HAVE ONLY PERFORMED A RESURRECTION TO PHYSICAL LIFE BECAUSE HE HAD NOT YET INHERITED ETERNAL LIFE WITHIN HIMSELF.

ONLY AFTER HE WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD AND BECAME THE FIRST TO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD; HE WAS RETURN TO THE STATE OF AN ETERNAL SPIRIT BEING BY GOD THE FATHER TO HAVING ETERNAL LIFE IN HIMSELF JOHN 5:26 AND IS NOW ABLE TO RESURRECT US TO ETERNAL LIFE AT HIS SECOND COMING.

WHEN JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTED LAZARUS HE PURPOSELY WAITED FOUR (4) DAYS FOR HIS BODY TO SEE CURRUPTION AND STANK SO THAT THOSE JEWS WHO WERE PRESENT WOULD BELIEVE THAT HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

  • LAZARUS WAS RESSURECTED TO PHYSICAL LIFE; AFTER BEING DEAD FOR FOUR DAYS.

John 11:4-6 (KJV) 4 When G1161 Jesus G2424 heard G191 that, he said, G2036 This G3778 sickness G769 is G2076 not G3756 unto G4314 death, G2288 but G235 for G5228 the glory G1391 of God, G2316 that G2443 the Son G5207 of God G2316 might be glorified G1392 thereby. G1223

John 11:5 (KJV) 5 Now G1161 Jesus G2424 loved G25 Martha, G3136 and G2532 her G846 sister, G79 and G2532 Lazarus. G2976

John 11:6 (KJV) 6 When G5613 he had heard G191 therefore G3767 that G3754 he was sick, G770 HE ABODE G3306 TWO G1417 DAYS G2250 STILL G5119 G3303 IN G1722 THE SAME PLACE G5117 WHERE G3739 HE WAS. G2258

JESUS CHRIST EXPLAINED THAT DEATH IS LIKE A SLEEP AND HE IS THE ONE WHO WILL CALL US OUT OF THIS STATE.

John 11:11-17 (KJV) 11 These things G5023 said G2036 he: G846 and G2532 after G3326 that G5124 he saith G3004 unto them, G846 OUR G2257 FRIEND G5384 LAZARUS G2976 SLEEPETH; G2837 BUT G235 I GO, G4198 THAT G2443 I MAY AWAKE G1852 G0 HIM G846 OUT OF SLEEP. G1852

John 11:12 (KJV) 12 Then G3767 said G2036 his G846 disciples, G3101 Lord, G2962 if G1487 he sleep, G2837 he shall do well. G4982

John 11:13 (KJV) 13 Howbeit G1161 Jesus G2424 spake G2046 of G4012 his G846 death: G2288 but G1161 they G1565 thought G1380 that G3754 he had spoken G3004 of G4012 taking of rest G2838 in sleep. G5258

John 11:14 (KJV) 14 Then G5119 G3767 said G2036 JESUS G2424 UNTO THEM G846 PLAINLY, G3954 LAZARUS G2976 IS DEAD. G599

John 11:15 (KJV) 15 And G2532 I am glad G5463 for G1223 your sakes G5209 that G3754 I was G2252 G2258 not G3756 there, G1563 to the intent G2443 ye may believe; G4100 nevertheless G235 let us go G71 unto G4314 him. G846

John 11:16 (KJV) 16 Then G3767 said G2036 Thomas, G2381 which G3588 is called G3004 Didymus, G1324 unto his fellowdisciples, G4827 Let us G71 also G2532 go, G71 that G2443 we G2249 may die G599 with G3326 him. G846

JESUS DELIBERATELY WAITED AFTER FOUR (4) DAYS FOR LAZARUS BODY TO BE IN THE GRAVE SO THAT THE BODY WAS ALREADY DECAYING AND STINKETH. 

THIS WAS FOR PHYSICAL EVIDENCE TO THOSE WITH HIM WHO WOULD NOT BELIEVE IN HIM THAT HE CAN RESURRECT THE DEAD.

John 11:17 (KJV) 17 Then G3767 when Jesus G2424 came, G2064 HE FOUND G2147 THAT HE G846 HAD G2192 LAIN IN G1722 THE GRAVE G3419 FOUR G5064 DAYS G2250 ALREADY. G2235

John 11:21-27 (KJV) 21 Then G3767 said G2036 Martha G3136 unto G4314 Jesus, G2424 Lord, G2962 if G1487 thou hadst been G2258 here, G5602 my G3450 brother G80 G302 had G2348 not G3756 died. G2348

John 11:22 (KJV) 22 But G235 I know, G1492 that even G2532 now, G3568 whatsoever G3754 G3745 G302 thou wilt ask G154 of God, G2316 God G2316 will give G1325 it thee. G4671

John 11:23 (KJV) 23 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto her, G846 Thy G4675 brother G80 shall rise again. G450

John 11:24 (KJV) 24 Martha G3136 saith G3004 unto him, G846 I know G1492 that G3754 he shall rise again G450 in G1722 the resurrection G386 at G1722 the last G2078 day. G2250

John 11:25 (KJV) 25 Jesus G2424 said G2036 unto her, G846 G1473 AM G1510 THE RESURRECTION, G386 AND G2532 THE LIFE: G2222 he that believeth G4100 in G1519 me, G1691 though G2579 he were dead, G599 yet shall he live: G2198

John 11:26 (KJV) 26 And G2532 whosoever G3956 liveth G2198 and G2532 believeth G4100 in G1519 me G1691 shall G599  never G3364 G1519 G165 die. G599 Believest thou G4100 this? G5124

John 11:27 (KJV) 27 She saith G3004 unto him, G846 Yea, G3483 Lord: G2962G1473 believe G4100 that G3754 thou G4771 art G1488 the Christ, G5547 the Son G5207 of God, G2316 which G3588 should come G2064 into G1519 the world. G2889

John 11:32-38 (KJV) 32 Then G3767 when G5613 Mary G3137 was come G2064 where G3699 Jesus G2424 was, G2258 and saw G1492 him, G846 she fell down G4098 at G1519 his G846 feet, G4228 saying G3004 unto him, G846 Lord, G2962 if G1487 thou hadst been G2258 here, G5602 my G3450 brother G80 had G302 not G3756 died. G599

John 11:33 (KJV) 33 When G5613 Jesus G2424 therefore G3767 saw G1492 her G846 weeping, G2799 and G2532 the Jews G2453 also weeping G2799 which came G4905 with her, G846 he groaned G1690 in the spirit, G4151 and G2532 was troubled, G5015 G1438

John 11:34 (KJV) 34 And G2532 said, G2036 Where G4226 have ye laid G5087 him? G846 They said G3004 unto him, G846 Lord, G2962 come G2064 and G2532 see. G1492

John 11:35 (KJV) 35 Jesus G2424 wept. G1145

John 11:36 (KJV) 36 Then G3767 said G3004 the Jews, G2453 Behold G2396 how G4459 he loved G5368 him! G846

John 11:37 (KJV) 37 And G1161 some G5100 of G1537 them G846 said, G2036 Could G1410 not G3756 this man, G3778 which G3588 opened G455 the eyes G3788 of the blind, G5185 have caused G4160 that G2443 even G2532 this man G3778 should G599 not G3361 have died? G599

John 11:38 (KJV) 38 Jesus G2424 therefore G3767 again G3825 groaning G1690 in G1722 himself G1438 cometh G2064 to G1519 the grave. G3419 G1161 It was G2258 a cave, G4693 and G2532 a stone G3037 lay G1945 upon G1909 it. G846

  • JESUS WAITED FOUR (4) DAYS BEFORE HE RESURRECTED LAZARUS FROM THE TOMB.

JESUS DEMONSTRATED THAT HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE; BOTH TO PHYSICAL LIFE AND AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD HE CAN ALSO RESURRECT TO ETERNAL LIFE.

JESUS DELIBERATELY WAITED FOUR (4) DAYS TO RESURRECT LAZARUS PHYSICALLY FROM THE DEAD. 

THE BODY OF LAZARUS SAW CORRUPTION (DECAY) AND STINKETH AFTER FOUR (4) DAYS. 

THIS WAS PHYSICAL EVIDENCE TO THOSE PRESENT THAT LAZARUS WAS DEAD AND NOT ASLEEP AND CONFIRM THAT JESUS WAS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

JESUS HAS THE AUTHORITY TO RESURRECT US TO BOTH PHYSICAL LIFE AND ETERNAL LIFE.

IT WAS A WELL-KNOWN FACT TO THE JEWS OF THE DAY THAT AFTER FOUR DAYS THE BODY OF THE DEAD IS IN DECAY AND STINKS.

JESUS PROVED BY THE RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS THAT HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE THAT LAZARUS WAS DEAD WAS THE DECAYING SCENT OF HIS BODY WHICH WOULD BE A WITNESS THAT JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

John 11:39-47 (KJV) 39 Jesus G2424 said, G3004 Take ye away G142 the stone. G3037 Martha, G3136 the sister G79 of him that was dead, G2348 saith G3004 unto him, G846 Lord, G2962 BY THIS TIME G2235 HE STINKETH: G3605 FOR G1063 HE HATH BEEN G2076 DEAD FOUR DAYS. G5066

JESUS DEMONSTARTED THAT HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE BY THE PHYSICAL RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD.

John 11:40 (KJV) 40 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto her, G846 Said I G2036 not G3756 unto thee, G4671 that, G3754 if G1437 thou wouldest believe, G4100 thou shouldest see G3700 the glory G1391 of God? G2316

John 11:41 (KJV) 41 Then G3767 they took away G142 the stone G3037 from the place where G3757 the dead G2348 was G2258 laid. G2749 And G1161 Jesus G2424 lifted G142 up G507 his eyes, G3788 and G2532 said, G2036 Father, G3962 I thank G2168 thee G4671 that G3754 thou hast heard G191 me. G3450

John 11:42 (KJV) 42 And G1161G1473 knew G1492 that G3754 thou hearest G191 me G3450 always: G3842 but G235 because G1223 of the people G3793 which G3588 stand by G4026 I said G2036 it, that G2443 they may believe G4100 that G3754 thou G4771 hast sent G649 me. G3165

John 11:43 (KJV) 43 And G2532 when he thus G5023 had spoken, G2036 HE CRIED G2905 WITH A LOUD G3173 VOICE, G5456 LAZARUS, G2976 COME G1204 FORTH. G1854

John 11:44 (KJV) 44 And G2532 he that was dead G2348 came forth, G1831 bound G1210 hand G5495 and G2532 foot G4228 with graveclothes: G2750 and G2532 HIS G846 FACE G3799 WAS BOUND ABOUT G4019 WITH A NAPKIN. G4676 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto them, G846 Loose G3089 him, G846 and G2532 let him G863 go. G5217

John 11:45 (KJV) 45 Then G3767 many G4183 of G1537 the Jews G2453 which G3588 came G2064 to G4314 Mary, G3137 and G2532 had seen G2300 the things which G3739 Jesus G2424 did, G4160 BELIEVED G4100 ON G1519 HIM. G846

John 11:46 (KJV) 46 But G1161 some G5100 of G1537 them G846 went their ways G565 to G4314 the Pharisees, G5330 and G2532 told G2036 them G846 what things G3739 Jesus G2424 had done. G4160

John 11:47 (KJV) 47 Then G3767 gathered G4863 the chief priests G749 and G2532 the Pharisees G5330 a council, G4892 and G2532 said, G3004 What G5101 do we? G4160 for G3754 this G3778 man G444 doeth G4160 many G4183 miracles. G4592

LAZARUS WAS THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

John 12:1 (KJV) Then G3767 Jesus G2424 six G1803 days G2250 before G4253 the passover G3957 came G2064 to G1519 Bethany, G963 where G3699 Lazarus G2976 WAS G2258 WHICH G3588 HAD BEEN DEAD, G2348 WHOM G3739 HE RAISED G1453 FROM G1537 THE DEAD. G3498

LAZARUS DID NOT PROCLAIM TO ANYONE THAT HE WENT TO HEAVEN WHEN HE WAS DEAD AND CAME BACK AFTER HIS RESURRECTION AS MANY FALSE MINISTERS TEACHES TODAY.

John 12:9 (KJV) Much G4183 people G3793 of G1537 the Jews G2453 therefore G3767 knew G1097 that G3754 he was G2076 there: G1563 and G2532 they came G2064 not G3756 for G1223 Jesus’ G2424 sake only, G3440 but G235 that G2443 they might see G1492 Lazarus G2976 also, G2532 WHOM G3739 HE HAD RAISED G1453 FROM G1537 THE DEAD. G3498

MESSAGE:

HELLO ROBERT.  AS A MICROBIOLOGIST I FIND YOUR QUESTION FASCINATING, MAINLY BECAUSE MY FAVORITE LITTLE MICROBES PLAY A LARGE PART IN WHAT 

HAPPENS TO A HUMAN BODY AFTER DEATH.  SOME PEOPLE MIGHT FIND IT DISGUSTING, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT IT FROM THE LEVEL OF THE MICROBES, 

INSECTS, AND OTHER ANIMALS INVOLVED IT IS JUST A NORMAL PART OF LIFE.  BE 

PREPARED ANYWAY BECAUSE THIS ISN’T GOING TO BE PRETTY.

LET’S FIRST LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HUMAN BODY AT THE TIME OF DEATH AND SOON AFTER.  AT THE VERY MOMENT OF DEATH, THE HEART STOPS BEATING AND THE LUNGS STOP BREATHING.  THIS MEANS THAT THE CELLS IN THE BODY WILL NO LONGER RECEIVE BLOOD AND OXYGEN.  SINCE THE BLOOD IS NO LONGER BEING PUMPED THROUGH THE BODY IT WILL DRAIN FROM THE BLOOD VESSELS AT THE TOP OF THE BODY AND COLLECT IN THE BLOOD VESSELS ON THE LOWER PART OF THE BODY.  THE UPPER PART OF THE BODY WILL BECOME PALE AND THE LOWER PART OF THE BODY WILL BECOME DARK.  IF THE PERSON IS LYING ON THEIR BACK, THE FRONT OF THEIR BODY AND FACE WILL BE VERY PALE OR EVEN GREY WHILE 

THEIR BACK WILL BE MUCH DARKER AND LOOK ALMOST LIKE IT IS BRUISED.   THIS IS CALLED LIVIDITY OR LIVER MORTIS AND IS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT A SCIENTIST WILL LOOK AT TO TRY TO DETERMINE WHEN SOMEONE DIED AND IF THEY WERE MOVED AFTER DEATH.  

AT THIS POINT MOST OF THE CELLS IN THE BODY ARE STILL NOT DEAD.  WHILE THE BRAIN CELLS DIE IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES AFTER THE HEART STOPS, MUSCLE CELLS CAN LIVE FOR SEVERAL HOURS AND SKIN AND BONE CELLS CAN STAY ALIVE FOR DAYS!  HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?  WELL, THE CELLS USE A DIFFERENT TYPE OF RESPIRATION THAN WHEN THE HEART AND LUNGS WERE WORKING.  WHILE THE PERSON WAS ALIVE THE CELLS USED AEROBIC RESPIRATION (WITH OXYGEN), BUT AFTER DEATH THE CELLS CONTINUE TO SURVIVE USING WHAT IS CALLED ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION (WITHOUT OXYGEN).  HOWEVER, ONE OF THE BY-PRODUCTS OF ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION IS LACTIC ACID.  LACTIC ACID EVENTUALLY BUILDS UP AND CAUSES THE MUSCLES TO STIFFEN.  THIS IS THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENS TO A PERSON’S LEGS WHEN THEY RUN A LONG DISTANCE.  THE HEART AND LUNGS CAN’T KEEP UP WITH THE DEMAND SO THE LEG MUSCLES START TO USE ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION.  IN A LIVING PERSON THIS LACTIC ACID WILL EVENTUALLY BE CLEARED OUT BY THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM, BUT IN A DEAD BODY THIS ISN’T POSSIBLE SO THE ENTIRE BODY STIFFENS.  THIS IS CALLED RIGOR MORTIS.  RIGOR MORTIS USUALLY STARTS ABOUT 3 HOURS AFTER DEATH AND LASTS 36 HOURS.  EVENTUALLY ALL OF THE CELLS DIE AND THE BODY CAN NO LONGER FIGHT OF BACTERIA.  THE CELLS’ OWN ENZYMES AND THE ENZYMES OF BACTERIA BEGIN TO CAUSE THE BODY TO DECOMPOSE AND THE MUSCLES LOSE THEIR STIFFNESS.  LIKE LIVER MORTIS, RIGOR MORTIS IS ANOTHER TOOL THAT SCIENTISTS CAN USE TO DETERMINE THE TIME OF DEATH.

OK.  NOW COMES THE ACTUAL PROCESS OF DECOMPOSITION, OR BREAKDOWN AND DECAY OF THE BODY.  DECOMPOSITION CAN BE BROKEN DOWN INTO 5 STEPS:

  1. INITIAL DECAY
  2. PUTREFACTION
  3. BLACK PUTREFACTION
  4. BUTYRIC PUTREFACTION
  5. DRY DECAY

LET’S LOOK AT EACH OF THESE STEPS IN MORE DETAIL.

STEP 1:  INITIAL DECAY

INITIAL DECAY OCCURS FROM 0 TO 3 DAYS AFTER DEATH.  ALTHOUGH THE BODY APPEARS FRESH FROM THE OUTSIDE, MANY THINGS ARE GOING ON INSIDE THE BODY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROCESS OF DECOMPOSITION.  THE BACTERIA THAT ARE NORMALLY INSIDE THE INTESTINES OF A LIVING PERSON BEGIN TO FEED ON THE CONTENTS OF THE INTESTINE AND THE INTESTINE ITSELF.  EVENTUALLY THESE 

BACTERIA BREAK OUT INTO THE BODY CAVITY AND START TO DIGEST OTHER ORGANS.  SINCE THE INTESTINE IS NO LONGER INTACT, THE BODY’S DIGESTIVE ENZYMES, WHICH WERE KEPT SAFELY INSIDE THE INTESTINE AND STOMACH, LEAK OUT AND SPREAD THROUGH THE BODY HELPING TO BREAK DOWN MORE ORGANS AND TISSUES.  AT THE SAME TIME, ENZYMES INSIDE INDIVIDUAL CELLS LEAK OUT AND DIGEST THE CELL AND ITS CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER CELLS.

LET’S NOT FORGET ABOUT THE INSECTS!  FROM THE MOMENT OF DEATH FLIES ARE ATTRACTED TO THE SMELL OF THE DECOMPOSING BODY.  WITHOUT THE NORMAL DEFENSES OF A LIVING BODY, THESE FLIES ARE ABLE TO LAY THEIR EGGS AROUND WOUNDS AND OTHER BODY OPENINGS (MOUTH, NOSE, EYES. ETC.).  WITHIN 24 HOURS MOST OF THESE EGGS HATCH AND THE LARVAE, OR MAGGOTS, MOVE INTO THE BODY TO FEED ON THE DEAD TISSUE.

STEP 2:  PUTREFACTION

PUTREFACTION OCCURS FROM 4 TO 10 DAYS AFTER DEATH.  AS THE BACTERIA ARE BREAKING DOWN THE TISSUES AND CELLS THEY ARE ALSO PRODUCING A LOT OF GAS. THESE GASES INCLUDE HYDROGEN SULFIDE, METHANE, CADAVERINE, AND PUTRESCINE.  ALL OF THESE GASES REALLY STINK, BUT INSECTS LOVE THE SMELL.  MORE AND MORE FLIES START TO SHOW UP ALONG WITH BEETLES AND 

MITES.  THE GASES ALSO CAUSE THE BODY TO INFLATE FORCING MORE FLUIDS OUT OF THE CELLS AND BLOOD VESSELS AND INTO THE BODY CAVITY.  THIS PROVIDES EVEN MORE FOOD FOR THE BACTERIA AND A NICE WARM LIVING SPACE FOR THE MAGGOTS.

STEP 3:  BLACK PUTREFACTION

THIS STAGE OCCURS FROM 10 TO 20 DAYS AFTER DEATH.  THE BLOATED BODY 

EVENTUALLY COLLAPSES AND THE FLESH HAS GOTTEN CREAMY (LIKE COTTAGE CHEESE).  THE EXPOSED PARTS OF THE BODY HAVE TURNED BLACK AND THE BODY REALLY BEGINS TO STINK.  A LOT OF THE FLUIDS HAVE NOW LEAKED OUT OF THE BODY INTO THE SOIL ATTRACTING MORE INSECTS AND MITES.  THESE INSECTS AND MITES WILL EVENTUALLY CONSUME MOST OF THE FLESH ON THE BODY.  BACTERIA ARE STILL AT WORK ALSO, AND WILL CONSUME THE FLESH IF THERE ARE NO INSECTS AROUND.  THE TEMPERATURE OF THE BODY ALSO INCREASES DUE TO ALL OF THE INSECT ACTIVITY.

STEP 4:  BUTYRIC FERMENTATION

BUTYRIC FERMENTATION OCCURS FROM 20 TO 50 DAYS AFTER DEATH.  ALL OF THE REMAINING FLESH ON THE BODY IS REMOVED DURING THIS TIME AND THE BODY STARTS TO DRY OUT.  IT HAS A “CHEESY” SMELL CAUSED BY BUTYRIC ACID.  THIS SMELL ATTRACTS A BUNCH OF NEW ORGANISMS TO THE BODY.  MOLD STARTS TO GROW ON THE PART OF THE BODY THAT IS TOUCHING THE GROUND AND A LOT OF BEETLES SHOW UP.  SINCE THE BODY IS BEGINNING TO DRY OUT MAGGOTS ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO EAT THE TOUGH FLESH.  BEETLES, HOWEVER, ARE ABLE TO CHEW THROUGH THIS TOUGH MATERIAL SUCH AS SKIN AND LIGAMENTS.

STEP 5:  DRY DECAY

THIS STAGE OCCURS FROM 50 TO 365 DAYS AFTER DEATH.  THE BODY IS NOW DRY AND DECAYS VERY SLOWLY.  TINEID MOTHS AND BACTERIA EVENTUALLY EAT THE PERSON’S HAIR, LEAVING NOTHING BUT BONES.  AS LONG AS THERE ARE NO LARGE ANIMALS AROUND TO CARRY THEM AWAY, THE BONES CAN REMAIN ALMOST INDEFINITELY.

THAT BRINGS US TO THE END OF THE DECOMPOSITION PROCESS.  MOST OF THESE STEPS DEPEND A LOT ON THE CLIMATE. TEMPERATURE AND MOISTURE AND THE PRESENCE OF INSECTS WILL AFFECT HOW LONG THIS WHOLE PROCESS TAKES.  

DECOMPOSITION WILL OCCUR MUCH FASTER IN THE SUMMER THAN IN THE WINTER AND ALSO WILL TAKE LONGER IN A BODY THAT IS BURIED THAN A BODY THAT IS LEFT EXPOSED ON THE GROUND.

  • HOW DO WE PROVE WHICH DAY OF THE WEEK JESUS CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES?

THE APOSTLE PAUL STATED THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD ON THE THIRD DAY AFTER HIS BURIAL IN THE TOMB ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES. 

1 Cor 15:3-4 (KJV) 3 For G1063 I delivered G3860 unto you G5213 first of all G1722 G4413 that which G3739G3880 also G2532 received, G3880 HOW G3754 THAT CHRIST G5547 DIED G599 FOR G5228 OUR G2257 SINS G266 ACCORDING G2596 TO THE SCRIPTURESG1124

1 Cor 15:4 (KJV) 4 And G2532 that G3754 he was buried, G2290 and G2532 THAT G3754 HE ROSE AGAIN G1453 THE THIRD G5154 DAY G2250 ACCORDING G2596 TO THE SCRIPTURESG1124

WE NEED TO PROVE FROM THE SCRIPTURES ALONE WHICH DAY OF THE WEEK JESUS CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD AND FURTHER BY COUNTING THREE (3) DAYS AND THREE (3) NIGHTS BACKWARDS THE TIMING OF THE PASSOVER WHICH INCLUDES – THE NEW COVENANT PASSOVER INSTITUTION, THE CRUCIFIXION, THE DEATH AND THE BURIAL OF JESUS CHRIST.

  • MATTHEW’S ACCOUNT OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

THIS SABBATH HERE IS THE WEEKLY SEVENTH DAY SABBATH ACCORDING TO THE BIBILCAL CALENDAR WHICH IS FOLLOWED BY THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK WHICH IS SUNDAY ACCORDING TO THE ROMAN CALENDAR.

Matt 28:1-2 (KJV) 1 IN THE END G1161 G3796 OF THE SABBATH, G4521 AS IT BEGAN TO DAWN G2020 TOWARD G1519 THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEK, G4521 came G2064 Mary G3137 Magdalene G3094 and G2532 the other G243 Mary G3137 to see G2334 the sepulchre. G5028

JESUS CHRIST DID NOT NEED THE STONE TO BE ROLLED AWAY FOR HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. 

THE TIMING OF THE STONE BEING ROLLED AWAY BY THE ANGEL WAS FOR THOSE OF HIS DISCIPLES WHO CAME TO THE TOMB AND SAW THAT HE WAS ALREADY RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD.

Matt 28:2 (KJV) 2 And, G2532 behold, G2400 there was G1096 a great G3173 earthquake: G4578 FOR G1063 THE ANGEL G32 OF THE LORD G2962 DESCENDED G2597 FROM G1537 HEAVEN, G3772 AND CAME G4334 AND ROLLED BACK G617 THE STONE G3037 FROM G575 THE DOOR, G2374 AND G2532 SAT G2521 UPON G1883 IT. G846 

  • MARK’S ACCOUNT OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

THE TIMING OF THE DISCIPLES COMING TO THE TOMB WAS BEFORE SUNRISE OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK. 

THIS CONFIRMED THAT JESUS CHRIST BODY WAS RESURRECTED WITHIN THE NIGHT PERIOD OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK WHICH CANNOT BE COUNTED IN TIMING OF THE THREE (3) DAYS AND THREE (3) NIGHTS OF THE PROPHECY IN MATTHEW 12:38-40.

Mar 16:2-4 (KJV) 2 And G2532 VERY G3029 EARLY IN THE MORNING G4404 THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEKG4521 they came G2064 unto G1909 the sepulchre G3419 AT THE RISING G393 OF THE SUN. G2246

Mar 16:3 (KJV) 3 And G2532 they said G3004 among G4314 themselves, G1438 Who G5101 shall roll G617 us G2254 away G617 the stone G3037 from G1537 the door G2374 of the sepulchre? G3419

Mar 16:4 (KJV) 4 And G2532 when they looked, G308 they saw G2334 that G3754 the stone G3037 was rolled away: G617 for G1063 it was G2258 very G4970 great. G3173

OTHER RELATED SCRIPTUTRES ON VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING:

THE PHRASE EARLY IN THE MORNING COULD BE BEFORE DAYLIGHT.

  • LUKE’S ACCOUNT OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

THE DISCIPLES CAME TO THE TOMB OF JESUS CHRIST VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING AND FOUND THE STONE OF THE TOMB ROLLED AWAY.

THIS MEANT THAT JESUS CHRIST BODY WAS RESURRECTED BEFORE SUNRISE OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK AND THAT THE NIGHT PERIOD OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK CANNOT BE COUNTED IN THE PROPHECY IN MATTHEW 12:38-40.

Luke 24:1-3 (KJV) 1 Now G1161 upon THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEK, G4521 VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING, G3722 G901 they came G2064 unto G1909 the sepulchre, G3418 bringing G5342 the spices G759 which G3739 they had prepared, G2090 and G2532 certain G5100 others with G4862 them. G846

  • JOHN’S ACCOUNT OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

MARY CAME TO THE TOMB OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK WHILE IT WAS YET DARK – BEFORE SUNRISE. 

THIS MEAN THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS RISEN WITHIN THE NIGHT PERIOD OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK JUST AFTER THE END OF THE WEEKLY SABBATH.

THIS MEANT THAT JESUS CHRIST BODY WAS RESURRECTED AFTER SUNSET INTO THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK AND THAT THE NIGHT PERIOD OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK CANNOT BE COUNTED IN THE PROPHECY IN MATTHEW 12:38-40.

John 20:1-2 (KJV) 1 G1161 THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEK G4521 COMETH G2064 MARY G3137 MAGDALENE G3094 EARLY, G4404 WHEN IT WAS G5607 YET G2089 DARK, G4653 unto G1519 the sepulchre, G3419 and G2532 seeth G991 the stone G3037 taken away G142 from G1537 the sepulchre. G3419 

IN THE GOSPEL OF MARK CHAPTER 16:9, THE TIMING OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST WAS GIVEN WHICH CAN ONLY BE UNDERTOOD BY: 

  • BELEIVING OF THE SCRIPTURES ALONE 
  • UNDERSTNDING OF THE BIBLICAL CALENDAR AS TO WHEN A DAY BEGINS AND ENDS

JESUS CHRIST WAS RISEN EARLY THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK. THIS DOES NOT REFER TO EARLY IN THE MORNING; BUT EARLY IN THE IST DAY OF THE WEEK WHICH BEGINS JUST AFTER SUNSET AFTER THE WEEKLY SABBATH HAS ENDED.

THIS CONCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:

  1. JESUS BODY WAS NOT IN THE TOMB AFTER SUNRISE ON 

THE IST DAY OF THE WEEK; SO, THIS DAY CANNOT BE COUNTED AS PART OF THE THREE (3) DAYS IN JONAH 1:17 OR MATTHEW 12:38-40

  1. JESUS BODY WAS NOT IN THE TOMB FOR THE WHOLE 

NIGHT PERIOD ON THE IST DAY OF THE WEEK; SO, THIS NIGHT CANNOT BE COUNTED AS PART OF THE THREE (3) DAYS IN JONAH 1:17 OR MATTHEW 12:38-40

Mar 16:9 (KJV)  Now G1161 when JESUS WAS RISEN G450 EARLY G4404 THE FIRST G4413 DAY OF THE WEEK, G4521 he appeared G5316 first G4412 to Mary G3137 Magdalene, G3094 out of G575 whom G3739 he had cast G1544 seven G2033 devils. G1140

 THEREFORE, THE NIGHT AND THE DAY OF THE FIRST OF THE WEEK CANNOT BE COUNTED IN THE PROPHECY OF JONAH 1:17 OR MATTHEW 12:38-40.

THEREFORE, COUNTING BACKWARDS THREE FULL DAYS AND THREE FULL NIGHTS FROM THE DAYLIGHT OF THE WEEKLY SABBATH WILL HELP US DETERMINE THE DAY AND THE TIMING OF THE WEEK WHEN JESUS CHRIST:

INSTITUTED THE NEW;

  • WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TIMING OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST AND THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING?

THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING WAS HARVESTED WHEN THE TIME FOR THE CUTTING THE SHEAF HAD ARRIVED DURING THE PASSOVER AND DAYS OF UNLEAVENED BREAD. 

THE WAVE SHEAF WAS CUT JUST AS THE SUN WENT DOWN AT THE END OF THE FIRST WEEKLY SABBATH (SATURDAY EVENING AFTER SUNSET) INTO THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (SATURDAY NIGHT) WHICH FOLLOWED THE PASSOVER AND THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.

THE WAVE SHEAF WAS THEN KEPT OVERNIGHT AND THEN WAVED BY THE PRIEST BEFORE THE LORD GOD TO BE ACCEPTED ON THE MORNING OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (SUNDAY MORNING AROUND THE THIRD HOUR OR 9:00AM).

JESUS CHRIST FULFILLED THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD AND FIRST ASCENSION TO GOD THE FATHER IN BOTH:

  1. THE TIMING OF HIS RESURRECTION WHICH WAS JUST AS 

THE SUN WENT DOWN ON THE FIRST WEEKLY SABBATH (SATURDAY EVENING JUST AFTER SUNSET) INTO THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (SUNDAY) WHICH FOLLOWED THE PASSOVER AND THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.

  1. THE TIMING OF HIS FIRST ASCENSION TO PRESENT 

HIMSELF BEFORE GOD THE FATHER TO BE ACCEPTED WHICH WAS ON THE MORNING OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (SUNDAY MORNING AROUND THE THIRD HOUR OR 9:00AM).

Lev 23:9-14 (KJV) 9 And the LORD H3068 spake H1696 unto Moses, H4872 saying, H5

Lev 23:10 (KJV) 10 Speak H1696 unto the children H1121 of Israel, H3478 and say H559 unto them, When ye become H935 into the land H776 which I give H5414 unto you, and shall reap H7114 the harvest H7105 thereof, then ye shall bring H935 a sheaf H6016 of the firstfruits H7225 of your harvest H7105 unto the priest: H3548

Lev 23:11 (KJV) 11 And HE SHALL WAVE H5130 THE SHEAF H6016 BEFORE H6440 THE LORD, H3068 TO BE ACCEPTED H7522 FOR YOU: ON THE MORROW H4283 AFTER THE SABBATH H7676 THE PRIEST H3548 SHALL WAVE H5130 IT.

THE LAMB REPRESENTED JESUS CHRIST AS THE LAMB OF GOD. 

Lev 23:12 (KJV) 12 And YE SHALL OFFER H6213 THAT DAY H3117 WHEN YE WAVE H5130 THE SHEAF H6016 AN HE LAMB H3532 WITHOUT BLEMISH H8549 of the first H1121 year H8141 for a burnt offering H5930 unto the LORD. H3068

Lev 23:13 (KJV) 13 And the meat offering H4503 thereof shall be two H8147 tenth deals H6241 of fine flour H5560 mingled H1101 with oil, H8081 an offering made by fire H801 unto the LORD H3068 for a sweet H5207 savour: H7381 and the drink offering H5262 thereof shall be of wine, H3196 the fourth H7243 part of an hin. H1969

Lev 23:14 (KJV) 14 And ye shall eat H398 neither bread, H3899 nor parched corn, H7039 nor green ears, H3759 until the selfsame H6106 H2088 day H3117 that H5704 ye have brought H935 an offering H7133 unto your God: H430 IT SHALL BE A STATUTE H2708 FOREVER H5769 throughout your generations H1755 in all your dwellings. H4186

  • JESUS CHRIST FULFILLED THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING BY 

THE TIMING OF HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD AND HIS FIRST ASCENSION TO BE WAVED OR PRESENTED BEFORE GOD THE FATHER IN HEAVEN.

JESUS CHRIST FULFILLED THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING CEREMONY AND BECAME OUR WAVE SHEAF OFFERING.

JESUS WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD JUST AFTER THE WEEKLY SABBATH HAD ENDED WHICH FOLLOWED THE PASSOVER AND THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD ACCORDING TO THE TRADITIONAL GATHERING OF THE SHEAF. 

JUST AS THE WAVE SHEAF WAS WAVED BEFORE THE LORD BY THE PRIEST ON THE MORNING OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK ABOUT THE THIRD HOUR (9:00AM) BEFORE THE REST OF THE HARVEST CAN WAS CUT; SO JESUS CHRIST NEEDED TO ASCEND TO GOD THE FATHER TO BE ACCEPTED BY GOD THE FATHER AS THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THOSE RISEN FROM THE DEAD AND AS THE FIRSTFRUIT OF MANY BRETHREN BEFORE HE COULD BE HANDLED BY HIS DISCIPLES.

THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST WAS PROPHESIED NOT TO REMAIN LONGER THAN THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE EARTH TO AVOID SEEING CORRUPTION OR DECAY. 

AFTER THREE (3) DAYS THE BODY WILL SEE CORRUPTION AS WAS EVIDENT IN THE BODY OF LAZARUS; WHICH BY THE FOURTH DAY WAS IN DECAY.

Psa 16:10 (KJV) For thou wilt not leave H5800 my soul H5315 in hell; H7585 NEITHER WILT THOU SUFFER H5414 THINE HOLY ONE H2623 TO SEE H7200 CORRUPTION. H7845

Psa 49:9 (KJV) THAT HE SHOULD STILL LIVE H2421 FOREVER, H5331 AND NOT SEE H7200 CORRUPTION. H7845

Jonah 2:6 (KJV) I went down H3381 to the bottoms H7095 of the mountains; H2022 the earth H776 with her bars H1280 was about me forever: H5769 YET HAST THOU BROUGHT UP H5927 MY LIFE H2416 FROM CORRUPTION, H7845 O LORD H3068 MY GOD. H430

Acts 2:27-31 (KJV) 27 BECAUSE G3754 THOU WILT G1459 G0 NOT G3756 LEAVE G1459 MY G3450 SOUL G5590 IN G1519 HELL, G86 NEITHER G3761 WILT THOU SUFFER G1325 THINE G4675 HOLY ONE G3741 TO SEE G1492 CORRUPTION. G1312

Acts 2:28 (KJV) 28 Thou hast made known G1107 to me G3427 the ways G3598 of life; G2222 thou shalt make G4137 G0 me G3165 full G4137 of joy G2167 with G3326 thy G4675 countenance. G4383

Acts 2:29 (KJV) 29 Men G435 and brethren, G80 let G2036 G0 me G1832 freely G3326 G3954 speak G2036 unto G4314 you G5209 of G4012 the patriarch G3966 David, G1138 that G3754 he is G5053 G0 both G2532 dead G5053 and G2532 buried, G2290 and G2532 his G846 sepulchre G3418 is G2076 with G1722 us G2254 unto G891 this G5026 day. G2250

Acts 2:30 (KJV) 30 Therefore G3767 being G5225 a prophet, G4396 and G2532 knowing G1492 that G3754 God G2316 had sworn G3660 with an oath G3727 to him, G846 that of G1537 the fruit G2590 of his G846 loins, G3751 according to G2596 the flesh, G4561 he would raise up G450 Christ G5547 to sit G2523 on G1909 his G846 throne; G2362

Acts 2:31 (KJV) 31 He seeing this before G4275 spake G2980 of G4012 the resurrection G386 of Christ, G5547 THAT G3754 HIS G846 SOUL G5590 WAS G2641 G0 NOT G3756 LEFT G2641 IN G1519 HELL, G86 NEITHER G3761 HIS G846 FLESH G4561 DID SEE G1492 CORRUPTION. G1312

Acts 13:34-37 (KJV) 34 And G1161 as concerning that G3754 he raised G450 G0 him G846 up G450 from G1537 the dead, G3498 now no more G3371 to G3195 return G5290 to G1519 corruption, G1312 he said G2046 on this wise, G3779 G3754 I will give G1325 you G5213 the sure G4103 mercies G3741 of David. G1138

Acts 13:35 (KJV) 35 Wherefore G1352 he saith G3004 also G2532 in G1722 another G2087 psalm, THOU SHALT G1325 G0 NOT G3756 SUFFER G1325 THINE G4675 HOLY ONE G3741 TO SEE G1492 CORRUPTION. G1312

Acts 13:36 (KJV) 36 For G1063 G3303 David, G1138 after he had served G5256 his own G2398 generation G1074 by the will G1012 of God, G2316 fell on sleep, G2837 and G2532 was laid G4369 unto G4314 his G846 fathers, G3962 and G2532 saw G1492 corruption: G1312

Acts 13:37 (KJV) 37 But G1161 he, whom G3739 God G2316 raised again, G1453 SAW G1492 NO G3756 CORRUPTION. G1312

CORRUPTION OR DECAY OF THE BODY AFTER FOURS DAYS OF THE BODY OF LAZARUS. 

JESUS WAITED FOUR (4) DAYS BEFORE RESURRECTING LAZARUS TO ENSURE THAT HIS BODY WAS DECAYING AND STINK BEFORE CAME; TO PROVIDE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE THAT BODY STINKETH TO ALL WHO WERE PRESENT.

John 11:39 (KJV) Jesus G2424 said, G3004 Take ye away G142 the stone. G3037 Martha, G3136 the sister G79 of him that was dead, G2348 saith G3004 unto him, G846 Lord, G2962 BY THIS TIME G2235 HE STINKETH: G3605 FOR G1063 HE HATH BEEN G2076 DEAD FOUR DAYS. G5066

  1. THE FULFILMENT OF THE PROPHECY OF CHRIST BEING OUR WAVE SHEAF OFFERING

THE NEW COVENANT BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST FULFIL THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING WHEN CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED JUST AFTER THE END OF THE WEEKLY SABBATH AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.

AFTER HIS RESURRECTION JESUS CHRIST ASCENDED ON THE MORNING OF THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK BEFORE GOD THE FATHER AS THE WAVE OFFERING AROUND THE THIRD HOUR (9:00AM) BEFORE HE COULD BE HANDLED BY HIS DISCIPLES.

Lev 23:9-14 (KJV) 9 And the LORD H3068 spake H1696 unto Moses, H4872 saying, H559

Lev 23:10 (KJV) 10 Speak H1696 unto the children H1121 of Israel, H3478 and say H559 unto them, When ye be come H935 into the land H776 which I give H5414 unto you, and shall reap H7114 the harvest H7105 thereof, then ye shall bring H935 a sheaf H6016 of the firstfruits H7225 of your harvest H7105 unto the priest: H3548

Lev 23:11 (KJV) 11 And he shall wave H5130 the sheaf H6016 before H6440 the LORD, H3068 to be accepted H7522 for you: on the morrow H4283 after the sabbath H7676 the priest H3548 shall wave H5130 it.

Lev 23:12 (KJV) 12 And ye shall offer H6213 that day H3117 when ye wave H5130 the sheaf H6016 an he lamb H3532 without blemish H8549 of the first H1121 year H8141 for a burnt offering H5930 unto the LORD. H3068

Lev 23:13 (KJV) 13 And the meat offering H4503 thereof shall be two H8147 tenth deals H6241 of fine flour H5560 mingled H1101 with oil, H8081 an offering made by fire H801 unto the LORD H3068 for a sweet H5207 savour: H7381 and the drink offering H5262 thereof shall be of wine, H3196 the fourth H7243 part of an hin. H1969

Lev 23:14 (KJV) 14 And ye shall eat H398 neither bread, H3899 nor parched corn, H7039 nor green ears, H3759 until the selfsame H6106 H2088 day H3117 that H5704 ye have brought H935 an offering H7133 unto your God: H430 it shall be a statute H2708 forever H5769 throughout your generations H1755 in all your dwellings. H4186

JESUS CHRIST WAS ABLE TO BE HANDLED BY HIS DISCIPLES AFTER HIS ASCENSION TO GOD THE FATHER AS OUR WAVE SHEAF OFFERING.

Luke 24:36-43 (KJV) 36 And G1161 as they G846 thus G5023 spake, G2980 Jesus G2424 himself G846 stood G2476 in G1722 the midst G3319 of them, G846 and G2532 saith G3004 unto them, G846 Peace G1515 be unto you. G5213

Luke 24:37 (KJV) 37 But G1161 they were terrified G4422 and G2532 affrighted, G1719 G1096 and supposed G1380 that they had seen G2334 a spirit. G4151

Luke 24:38 (KJV) 38 And G2532 he said G2036 unto them, G846 Why G5101 are ye G2075 troubled? G5015 and G2532 why G1302 do thoughts G1261 arise G305 in G1722 your G5216 hearts? G2588

Luke 24:39 (KJV) 39 Behold G1492 my G3450 hands G5495 and G2532 my G3450 feet, G4228 that G3754 it is G1510G1473 myself: G846 handle G5584 me, G3165 and G2532 see; G1492 for G3754 a spirit G4151 hath G2192 not G3756 flesh G4561 and G2532 bones, G3747 as G2531 ye see G2334 me G1691 have. G219

Luke 24:40 (KJV) 40 And G2532 when he had thus G5124 spoken, G2036 he shewed G1925 them G846 his hands G5495 and G2532 his feet. G4228

Luke 24:41 (KJV) 41 And G1161 while they G846 yet G2089 believed not G569 for G575 joy, G5479 and G2532 wondered, G2296 he said G2036 unto them, G846 Have ye G2192 here G1759 any G5100 meat? G1034

Luke 24:42 (KJV) 42 And G1161 they gave G1929 him G846 a piece G3313 of a broiled G3702 fish, G2486 and G2532 of G575 an honeycomb. G3193 G2781

Luke 24:43 (KJV) 43 And G2532 he took G2983 it, and did eat G5315 before G1799 them. G846 

John 20:17-19 (KJV) Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto her, G846 TOUCH G680 ME G3450 NOT; G3361 FOR G1063 I AM G305 G0 NOT YET G3768 ASCENDED G305 TO G4314 MY G3450 FATHER: G3962 but G1161 go G4198 to G4314 my G3450 brethren, G80 and G2532 say G2036 unto them, G846 I ascend G305 unto G4314 my G3450 Father, G3962 and G2532 your G5216 Father; G3962 and G2532 to my G3450 God, G2316 and G2532 your G5216 God. G2316 

John 20:18 (KJV) 18 Mary G3137 Magdalene G3094 came G2064 and told G518 the disciples G3101 that G3754 she had seen G3708 the Lord, G2962 and G2532 that he had spoken G2036 these things G5023 unto her. G84

John 20:19 (KJV) 19  THEN G3767 THE SAME G1565 DAY G2250 AT EVENING, G3798 BEING G5607 THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEK, G4521 WHEN G2532 THE DOORS G2374 WERE SHUT G2808 WHERE G3699 THE DISCIPLES G3101 WERE G2258 ASSEMBLED G4863 FOR G1223 FEAR G5401 OF THE JEWS, G2453 came G2064 Jesus G2424 and G2532 stood G2476 in G1519 the midst, G3319 and G2532 saith G3004 unto them, G846 Peace G1515 be unto you. G5213

  1. THE START OF THE COUNT FOR THE FIRST 

FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHESIED OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE FIRSTFRUITS OF GOD IN THE BOOK JOEL ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST OR FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS ALSO CALLED THE FEAST OF WEEKS.

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST MADE THE WAY OF THE FIRST OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THE FIRSTFRUITS OF GOD.

THE START OF THE COUNT TOWARDS THE FIRST FULFILLMENT OF THE DAY OF PENTECOST: THE COUNTING OF THE FEAST OF WEEKS OR THE DAY OF PENTECOST. 

Lev 23:15-21 (KJV) 15 And YE SHALL COUNT H5608 UNTO YOU FROM THE MORROW H4283 AFTER THE SABBATH, H7676 FROM THE DAY H3117 THAT YE BROUGHT H935 THE SHEAF H6016 OF THE WAVE OFFERING; H8573 seven H7651 sabbaths H7676 shall be H1961 complete: H8549 

Lev 23:16 (KJV) 16  Even unto H5704 the morrow H4283 after the seventh H7637 sabbath H7676 shall ye number H5608 fifty H2572 days; H3117 and ye shall offer H7126 a new H2319 meat offering H4503 unto the LORD. H3068

THE TWO WAVE LOAVES WITH LEAVEN IN LEVITICUS 23:17; REPRESENTS THE FIRSTFRUITS UNTO THE LORD WHO WOULD RECEIVE THE FIRST OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS 2:1-21 AND THEN THE SECOND OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHICH WILL OCCUR AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION IN REVELATION 6:12-17 AND REVELATION 7:1-8. 

Lev 23:17 (KJV) 17  YE SHALL BRING OUT H935 OF YOUR HABITATIONS H4186 TWO H8147 WAVE H8573 LOAVES H3899 OF TWO H8147 TENTH DEALS: H6241 they shall be of fine flour; H5560 THEY SHALL BE BAKEN H644 WITH LEAVEN; H2557 THEY ARE THE FIRSTFRUITS H1061 UNTO THE LORD. H3068

Lev 23:18 (KJV) 18 And ye shall offer H7126 with the bread H3899 seven H7651 lambs H3532 without blemish H8549 of the first H1121 year, H8141 and one H259 young H1241 H1121 bullock, H6499 and two H8147 rams: H352 they shall be for a burnt offering H5930 unto the LORD, H3068 with their meat offering, H4503 and their drink offerings, H5262 even an offering made by fire, H801 of sweet H5207 savour H7381 unto the LORD. H3068

JUST AS JESUS CHRIST WAS THE FIRST TO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD AND TO ASCEND TO GOD THE FATHER AS OUR WAVE SHEAF OFFERING; SO, WE THE FIRSTFRUITS OF GOD WILL BE RESURRECTED AT THE LAST TRUMPET OR SEVENTH TRUMPET OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION REV 11:15-18 AND BE PRESENTED BEFORE GOD THE FATHER AS THE FIRSTFRUITS OF A WAVE OFFERING AT THE MARRIAGE SUPER OF THE LAMB; BEFORE RETURNING WITH CHRIST TO THE EARTH.  

Lev 23:20 (KJV) 20 And THE PRIEST H3548 SHALL WAVE H5130 THEM WITH THE BREAD H3899 OF THE FIRSTFRUITS H1061 FOR A WAVE OFFERING H8573 BEFORE H6440 THE LORD, H3068 with the two H8147 lambs: H3532 they shall be holy H6944 to the LORD H3068 for the priest. H3548 

Lev 23:21 (KJV) 21 And ye shall proclaim H7121 on the selfsame H6106 day, H3117 that it may be an holy H6944 convocation H4744 unto you: ye shall do H6213 no servile H5656 work H4399 therein: IT SHALL BE A STATUTE H2708 FOREVER H5769 in all your dwellings H4186 throughout your generations. H1755

Joel 2:31 (KJV) 31 The sun H8121 shall be turned H2015 into darkness, H2822 and the moon H3394 into blood, H1818 before H6440 the great H1419 and the terrible H3372 day H3117 of the LORD H3068 come. H935

Joel 2:32 (KJV) 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call H7121 on the name H8034 of the LORD H3068 shall be delivered: H4422 for in mount H2022 Zion H6726 and in Jerusalem H3389 shall be deliverance, H6413 as the LORD H3068 hath said, H559 and in the remnant H8300 whom the LORD H3068 shall call. H7121

Rev 6:14 (KJV) 14 And G2532 the heaven G3772 departed G673 as G5613 a scroll G975 when it is rolled together; G1507 and G2532 every G3956 mountain G3735 and G2532 island G3520 were moved G2795 out of G1537 their G846 places. G5117

Rev 6:15 (KJV) 15 And G2532 the kings G935 of the earth, G1093 and G2532 the great men, G3175 and G2532 the rich men, G4145 and G2532 the chief captains, G5506 and G2532 the mighty men, G1415 and G2532 every G3956 bondman, G1401 and G2532 every G3956 free man, G1658 hid G2928 themselves G1438 in G1519 the dens G4693 and G2532 in G1519 the rocks G4073 of the mountains; G3735

Rev 6:16 (KJV) 16 And G2532 said G3004 to the mountains G3735 and G2532 rocks, G4073 Fall G4098 on G1909 us, G2248 and G2532 hide G2928 us G2248 from G575 the face G4383 of him that sitteth G2521 on G1909 the throne, G2362 and G2532 from G575 the wrath G3709 of the Lamb: G721

Rev 6:17 (KJV) 17 For G3754 the great G3173 day G2250 of his G846 wrath G3709 is come; G2064 and G2532 who G5101 shall be able G1410 to stand? G2476

REVELATION CHAPTER 7

Rev 7:1-8 (KJV) 1 And G2532 after G3326 these things G5023 I saw G1492 four G5064 angels G32 standing G2476 on G1909 the four G5064 corners G1137 of the earth, G1093 holding G2902 the four G5064 winds G417 of the earth, G1093 that G3363 the wind G417 should G4154 not G3363 blow G4154 on G1909 the earth, G1093 nor G3383 on G1909 the sea, G2281 nor G3383 on G1909 any G3956 tree. G1186

Rev 7:2 (KJV) 2 And G2532 I saw G1492 another G243 angel G32 ascending G305 G305 from G575 the east, G395 G2246 HAVING G2192 THE SEAL G4973 OF THE LIVING G2198 GOD: G2316 and G2532 he cried G2896 with a loud G3173 voice G5456 to the four G5064 angels, G32 to whom G3739 it G846 was given G1325 to hurt G91 the earth G1093 and G2532 the sea, G2281

Rev 7:3 (KJV) 3 Saying, G3004 Hurt G91 not G3361 the earth, G1093 neither G3383 the sea, G2281 nor G3383 the trees, G1186 TILL G891 G3739 WE HAVE SEALED G4972 G4972 THE SERVANTS G1401 OF OUR G2257 GOD G2316 IN G1909 THEIR G846 FOREHEADS. G3359

Rev 7:4 (KJV) 4 And G2532 I HEARD G191 THE NUMBER G706 OF THEM WHICH WERE SEALED: G4972 AND THERE WERE SEALED G4972 AN HUNDRED G1540 AND FORTY G5062 AND FOUR G5064 THOUSAND G5505 OF G1537 ALL G3956 THE TRIBES G5443 OF THE CHILDREN G5207 OF ISRAEL. G2474

  • WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE PHYSICAL RESURRECTION OF THE SAINTS IN JERUSALEM WHICH OCCURRED DURING THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST?

THE WITNESS OF THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD WAS HIDDEN FROM THE PHARISEES; SADUCCEES; THE SCRIBES  AND THE CHIEF PRIEST AND ONLY REVEALED TO HIS APOSTLES AND HIS DISCIPLES.

THE TRUTH OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST COULD NOT BE COVERED UP BY THE PHARISEES; SADUCCEES; THE SCRIBES AND THE CHIEF PRIESTS; BECAUSE THERE WAS ALSO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF SAINTS WHO BELIEVED IN JESUS CHRIST BEING RESURRECTED ALIVE AS WITNESSES IN THE HOLY CITY JERUSALEM, WHO WERE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD TO PHYSICAL LIFE JUST AS LAZARUS WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD.

  1. CHRIST ONLY APPEARED UNTO HIS APOSTLES AND 

DISCIPLES AFTER HIS RESURRECTION AS A WITNESS TO INCREASE THEIR FAITH IN HIM THAT HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

  1. CHRIST DID NOT APPEAR TO THE PHARISES, THE 

SADDUCEES, THE SCRIBES, THE ELDERS, THE CHIEF PRIESTS TO PROVIDE THE WITNESS OF HIS RESURRECTION.                                                                  ALL THEY KNEW THAT THE STONE WAS ROLLED AWAY. 

  1. THOSE WHO WERE RESURRECTED AFTER THE 

RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST WERE SAINTS WHO BELIEVED IN CHRIST AND MUST HAVE BEEN KNOWN BY THOSE IN JERUSALEM AND THEREFORE WERE WITNESSES OF THE PHYSICAL RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD TO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN JERUSALEM. 

ALL THE PHARISES, THE SADDUCEES, THE SCRIBES, THE ELDERS, AND THE CHIEF PRIEST WOULD HAVE SEEN THOSE WHO WERE DEAD AND WERE NOW ALIVE; AND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DENY THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST DUE TO THE NUMBER OF SAINTS WHO WERE ALSO RESURRECTED TO PHYSICAL LIFE.

THEY COULD NOT KILL THE SHARE NUMBER AS THEY HAD CONSULTED TO KILL LAZARUS TO DENY THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

Mat 27:52-53 (KJV) 52 And G2532 the graves G3419 were opened; G455 and G2532 MANY G4183 BODIES G4983 OF THE SAINTS G40 WHICH G3588 SLEPT G2837 AROSE, G1453

MANY BELIEVE THAT THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODIES OF THE SAINTS OCCURRED AT THE DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST. BUT THE TIMING OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODIES OF THE SAINTS TO PHYSICAL LIFE OCCURRED AFTER THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST.

Mat 27:53 (KJV) 52 53 AND G2532 CAME G1831 OUT OF G1537 THE GRAVES G3419 AFTER G3326 HIS G846 RESURRECTION, G1454 and WENT G1525 INTO G1519 THE HOLY G40 CITY, G4172 AND G2532 APPEARED G1718 UNTO MANY. G4183

THAYER’S GREEK LEXICON 

  1. to manifest, exhibit to view; to show one’s self, come to view, appear, be manifest 
  2. to indicate, disclose, declare, make known 

THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND THE ELDERS CONSULTED WITH THE SOLDIERS TO CREATE A FALSE STORY THAT THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST STOLE HIS BODY WHILE HE SLEPT TO DENY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST; BUT THEY COULD NOT DENY THE WITNESS OF THOSE SAINTS WHO WERE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD AND APPEARED IN THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM.

Matt 28:11-15 (KJV) 11 Now G1161 when they G846 were going, G4198 behold, G2400 some G5100 of the watch G2892 came G2064 into G1519 the city, G4172 and shewed G518 unto THE CHIEF PRIESTS G749 all the things G537 that were done. G1096

Matt 28:12 (KJV) 12 And G2532 when they were assembled G4863 with G3326 THE ELDERS, G4245 and G5037 had taken G2983 counsel, G4824 they gave G1325 large G2425 money G694 unto the soldiers, G4757

Matt 28:13 (KJV) 13 Saying, G3004 Say ye, G2036 G3754 His G846 disciples G3101 came G2064 by night, G3571 and STOLE G2813 HIM G846 AWAY WHILE WE G2257 SLEPT. G2837

Matt 28:14 (KJV) 14 And G2532 if G1437 this G5124 come G191 G0 to G1909 the governor’s G2232 ears, G191 we G2249 will persuade G3982 him, G846 and G2532 secure G275 G4160 you. G5209

Matt 28:15 (KJV) 15 So G1161 they took G2983 the money, G694 and did G4160 as G5613 they were taught: G1321 and G2532 THIS G3778 SAYING G3056 IS COMMONLY REPORTED G1310 AMONG G3844 THE JEWS G2453 UNTIL G3360 THIS DAY. G4594

THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND THE ELDERS CONSULTED TO PUT LAZARUS TO DEATH BECAUSE HE WAS EVIDENCE OF THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD AND THE WITNESS TO JESUS CHRIST BEING THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.

John 12:9-11 (KJV) 9 Much G4183 people G3793 of G1537 the Jews G2453 therefore G3767 knew G1097 that G3754 he was G2076 there: G1563 and G2532 they came G2064 not G3756 for G1223 Jesus’ G2424 sake only, G3440 but G235 that G2443 they might see G1492 Lazarus G2976 also, G2532 whom G3739 he had raised G1453 from G1537 the dead. G3498

John 12:10 (KJV) 10 BUT G1161 THE CHIEF PRIESTS G749 CONSULTED G1011 THAT G2443 THEY MIGHT PUT G615 G0 LAZARUS G2976 ALSO G2532 TO DEATH; G615

John 12:11 (KJV) 11 BECAUSE G3754 THAT BY REASON G1223 OF HIM G846 MANY G4183 OF THE JEWS G2453 WENT AWAY, G5217 AND G2532 BELIEVED G4100 ON G1519 JESUS. G2424 

John 12:17 (KJV) THE PEOPLE G3793 THEREFORE G3767 THAT WAS G5607 WITH G3326 HIM G846 WHEN G3753 HE CALLED G5455 LAZARUS G2976 OUT OF G1537 HIS GRAVE, G3419 AND G2532 RAISED G1453 HIM G846 FROM G1537 THE DEAD, G3498 BARE RECORD. G3140

  • WHAT DID JESUS CHRIST DO DURING THE TIME AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD AND BEFORE HIS APPEARANCE TO MARY?

AFTER JESUS CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD JUST AFTER THE END OF THE WEEKLY SABBATH FOLLOWING THE PASSOVER AND FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD; HE HAD NOT YET ASCENDED TO GOD THE FATHER; BEFORE HE APPEARED TO MARY.

  1. JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTED THE SAINTS OF GOD WHO 

WOULD HAVE DIED DURING HIS TIME ON EARTH IN THE FLESH TO PHYSICAL LIFE AS A WITNESS TO THE PHARISEES, SADDUCEES, SCRIBES, CHIEF PRIESTS AND ELDERS. 

THERE WILL BE NO DENIAL BY THE PHARISEES, SADDUCEES, SCRIBES, CHIEF PRIESTS AND ELDERS OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD AFTER A GREAT MANY WITNESSES OF THE SAINTS OF GOD WERE SEEN PHYSICALLY RESURRECTED IN JERUSALEM.

Matt 27:52-53 (KJV) 52 And G2532 the graves G3419 were opened; G455 and G2532 many G4183 bodies G4983 of the saints G40 which G3588 slept G2837 arose, G1453

Matt 27:53 (KJV) 53 And G2532 came G1831 out of G1537 the graves G3419 after G3326 his G846 resurrection, G1454 and went G1525 into G1519 the holy G40 city, G4172 and G2532 appeared G1718 unto many. G4183

  1. JESUS CHRIST WENT TO PREACH TO THE ANGELS 

WHICH ARE KEPT IN A SPIRITULA PRISON – IN THE HOLDING PLACES OF GOD  OF OUTER DARKNESS – IN THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH.

  • THE HOLDING PLACES FOR ANGELS:

ANGELS ARE SPIRIT BEINGS AND THEREFORE CANNOT DIE PHYSICALLY AS MAN. 

SOME OF THE ANGELS THAT HAVE SINNED ALONG WITH SATAN HAVE BEEN PLACE IN HOLDING PLACES BY GOD RESERVED UNTIL THE TIME OF THEIR JUDGMENT WHICH IS THEIR PUNSIHMENT IN THE LAKE OF FIRE-THE SECOND DEATH.

THE SECOND DEATH IS A CONSCIOUS DEATH IN A SPIRITUAL BODY AND WILL OCCUR IN A PLACE OF TORMENT. 

AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD JUST AFTER SUNSET ON THE WEEKLY SABBATH DAY FOLOWING THE PASSOVER AND FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD AND BEFORE JESUS CHRIST APPEARED TO MARY; HE HAD ALREADY DESCENDED INTO THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH TO PREACH UNTO THE ANGELS IN PRISON – GOD’S SPIRITUAL HOLDING PLACE OF OUTER DARKNESS FOR FALLEN ANGELS AWAITING THEIR COMING JUDGMENT IN THE LAKE OF FIRE.

John 20:16-20 (KJV) 16 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto her, G846 Mary. G3137 She G1565 turned G4762 herself, and saith G3004 unto him, G846 Rabboni; G4462 which G3739 is to say, G3004 Master. G1320

John 20:17 (KJV) 17 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 unto her, G846 TOUCH G680 ME G3450 NOT; G3361 FOR G1063 I AM G305  NOT YET G3768 ASCENDED G305 TO G4314 MY G3450 FATHER: G3962 but G1161 go G4198 to G4314 my G3450 brethren, G80 and G2532 say G2036 unto them, G846 I ascend G305 unto G4314 my G3450 Father, G3962 and G2532 your G5216 Father; G3962 and G2532 to my G3450 God, G2316 and G2532 your G5216 God. G2316

John 20:18 (KJV) 18 Mary G3137 Magdalene G3094 came G2064 and told G518 the disciples G3101 that G3754 she had seen G3708 the Lord, G2962 and G2532 that he had spoken G2036 these things G5023 unto her. G846

John 20:19 (KJV) 19 THEN G3767 THE SAME G1565 DAY G2250 AT EVENING, G3798 BEING G5607 THE FIRST G3391 DAY OF THE WEEK, G4521 when G2532 the doors G2374 were shut G2808 where G3699 the disciples G3101 were G2258 assembled G4863 for G1223 fear G5401 of the Jews, G2453 came G2064 Jesus G2424 and G2532 stood G2476 in G1519 the midst, G3319 and G2532 saith G3004 unto them, G846 Peace G1515 be unto you. G5213

John 20:20 (KJV) 20 And G2532 when he had G2036 so G5124 said, G2036 HE SHEWED G1166 UNTO THEM G846 HIS HANDS G5495 AND G2532 HIS G846 SIDE. G4125 Then G3767 were G5463 the disciples G3101 glad, G5463 when they saw G1492 the Lord. G2962

THE APOSTLE PAUL STATED THAT JESUS CHRIST DESCENDED INTO THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH WHICH IS THE HOLDING PLACES OF THE SPIRITS BEINGS – WHO ARE THE FALLEN ANGELS – TO PREACH THE GOSPEL AND THE COMING JUDGMENT IN THE LAKE OF FIRE WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.

Eph 4:8-10 (KJV) 8 Wherefore G1352 he saith, G3004 When he ascended G305 up G1519 on high, G5311 HE LED CAPTIVITY G162 CAPTIVE, G161 and G2532 gave G1325 gifts G1390 unto men. G444
