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.
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!
(See John 19:30)
He had paid Holy blood for UNholy mankind!
On Saturday 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!" (See John 14:6)
Man utilizes many schemes to glorify self and reject
Jesus as the Creator, Lord and Savior.
The "chief priests and Pharisees" made "sure" the
gravesite as much as was possible by sealing the tomb
and putting a "watch" (guards) over the entrance
"Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!"
Man utilizes many intellectual reasonings 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!!
God CREATED all there is - and, yes, even man!
God ALLOWED man to have free will.
God PLANNED the salvation of man!
God COMPLETED salvation HIMSELF!
The PLAN of salvation is JESUS!!
And, JUDGMENT day IS coming!!
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him (Jesus),
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
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Tomorrow, on the first day of the week, we will see
the SON rose before the sun rose!!
And, one day, we will see that He Who died FOR
man's sin, will RISE to JUDGE all sinners!
