A DIFFERENT COUNT!
THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS
By now, if you are a true Servant of God (ISRAEL, PEOPLE OUT OF EVERY NATION, EVERY TONGUE),
we all know about the THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS that the Lord said he would be in the heart of the Earth!
But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:39-40 KJV
SORRY! BUT YA JUST CAN'T GET THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS FROM GOOD FRIDAY TO EASTER SUNDAY MORNING!
But for some, reading (or not reading) scripture and prophecy is never enough. So the Lord has caused us to present the timeline of his death, from a totally different direction.
APOSTLE PAUL, (LIKE ALL OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL), KEPT ALL THE FEAST DAYS!
Acts 18:18-21 KJV
FEAST DAYS OF THE LORD (JESUS)
Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
John 19:16-19, 21-22, 25-34, 36-37, 42 KJV
APOSTLE PAUL CELEBRATED THE PASSOVER AND FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD! THEN TRAVELED TO TROAS!
And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed for to go into Macedonia.
And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,
And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.
And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.
These going before tarried for us at Troas.
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
Acts 20:1-7 KJV
BUT WHAT UPROAR?
JESUS PROPHETIC CONVICTION
JESUS PROPHETIC CRUCIFIXION
SO LET'S COUNT BACKWARDS OK?
Came together to break bread in Troas on the (1) st day of the week. (Sunday)!
- They were in Troas for (7) days!
- They arrived the Previous Sunday!
- It took them (5) days to get there!
MIDDLE OF THE WEEK!
- THEY DEPARTED PHILIPPI AFTER UNLEAVENED BREAD, THE DAY AFTER THE PASSOVER!
REMEMBER; THE DAY BEGINS AT SUNDOWN!
ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD, EACH NEW “DAY” (BEGINS) AT SUNDOWN AT EVEN-ING (EVEN)
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THE WORD OF GOD?
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN HISTORY!
TEACH THEM THE FUTURE!
PEACE IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME!
