THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Man can manufacture conjectures and utilize all the hyperboles
of rejection for eternal judgment by Jesus he desires;
but, that day IS coming!
The truth of the resurrection is sufficient to diffuse all rejection!
And, the truth of the resurrection guarantees an eternal judgment!
62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation,
the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he
was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until
the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away,
and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last
error shall be worse than the first.
65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make
it as sure as ye can.
66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone,
and setting a watch.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Light from the Word.
"Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!"
On Friday, Christ had "finished" His work of salvation!
He had paid holy blood for unholy mankind!
On Saturday, He "rested" from that work.
He awaited only "the coming day," when the resurrection would
prove His eternal Godhead!
Sunday would show Him as "THE way, THE truth, and THE Life!"
Man utilizes many schemes to glorify self and reject the Savior.
The "chief priests and Pharisees" made "sure" the gravesite as
much as was possible by sealing the tomb and putting a "watch" over
the entrance all night.
But SONday is coming!
"Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!"
Man utilizes many intellectual reasoning and excuses to deny
the realness of God incarnate in Jesus.
Many refuse to confess sin and surrender to His Lordship.
But JUDGMENT DAY is coming!
Phil 2:9-11 says,
"9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name
which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven,
and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."
The resurrection exhibits His power over death, and
His Lordship over all living!
Visit tomorrow and see:
The SONrise before sunrise!
