Question? Was Jesus Christ crucified on Friday and Resurrected on Sunday?
Jesus was crucified on Wednesday, between 3 and 6 pm, and resurrected on Saturday, between 3 and 6 pm.
Matthew 12:40 states that “…as Jonas(Jonah) was 3 days and 3 nights in the whales belly, so shall the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) be 3 days and 3 nights in the heart(center) of the earth.”
The Bible mentions a compartment in the center (heart) of the earth. Some churches have FALSELY taught that Christ went to hell to fight the devil, and to pay for the sins of mankind, but Christ went to the cross to pay for our sins. Satan is not in hell, and never has been, even though it was created for him, and the angels that followed him in rebellion against the Lord – Matthew 25:41, Rev. 12:9.
Jesus Christ, and the dying BELIEVING thief, went to the Paradise side of this two compartment place – Luke 23:43.
The rich man, spoken of in Luke 16:19-30, went to the Torment (hell) side of this compartment. After Jesus had been in Paradise for 3 days and nights, Christ arose from the dead, and took all the saved people in Paradise to Heaven with him- Ephesians 4:8,9.
The reason that Jesus Christ WAS NOT crucified on Friday through Sunday, is BECAUSE you cannot get 3 days and 3 nights, as scripture declares. In John 19:31,, the year Christ was crucified, it was a a special Sabbath (High Day), and it started on Thursday of the week that Christ was crucified, so Christ not only had to have been crucified prior to the Passover Sabbath (Thursday), but on the Day of Preparation (Wednesday). His body, also, would have had to have been removed, as well, as to not to create a scene of disgust to all those who would be visitors to the Passover.
Matthew 28:1 states that “…as it was dawning TOWARD the first day (Saturday 6pm) of the week the two Marys went to the tomb of Christ.” Then, in VERSE 6, the angel spoke to the them and said that “HE IS NOT HERE, HE HAS RISEN.”
To give a little background, in bible times, the Jewish day ran from 6 pm to 6 am, NOT 12 pm to 12 am like ours, so the first day of the week STARTED at 6 pm Saturday Night. Therefore Christ HAD TO BE RISEN BEFORE 6 pm Saturday Night, in order to FULFILL Bible Prophecy of being risen AFTER 3 days and 3 nights. This meant that Christ HAD TO BE CRUCIFIED Wednesday, between 3 and 6 pm, and Resurrected Saturday, between 3 and 6 pm.
Satan Has DECEIVED MOST people with the Friday to Sunday Lie, and most people, UNLESS they have been shown otherwise,have NO IDEA that they have BELIEVED A LIE all their life. 1 Peter 5:8.
The ABC’s of Salvation:
A. Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
B. Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
C. BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell & the lake of fire); but the GIFT of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
