Just What Day Was Jesus Christ Crucified?

 

For many years I wondered why Easter was celebrated on Sunday and why Good Friday was seen as the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

 

As a young man, in my teens, I inquired of my instructors asking, ‘If Jesus was crucified on a Friday and died at 3 PM on that Friday, how does that make up 3 days and 3 nights as you teach me in class?’

 

My inquiries varied but there was no answer forthcoming that allowed me to feel comfortable.

 

Let’s look at what God said:

 

Matthew 12: 40For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

 

Jesus had been asked to prove that He was the Son of God and gave this in reply. His Word must be taken as truth as we look into this very important matter. After all, as Christians, we must know and realize the absolute truth as we know that Jesus was and is the only ‘begotten’ Son of God. If He did not fulfill God’s Word and spend 3 days and 3 nights then we are guilty of a false worship and utter dolts for our beliefs.

 

If Jesus was indeed crucified on a Friday and died at 3 PM and later laid in a tomb if we count the days we arrive at: Friday night (1 night), Saturday (1 day) and Saturday night, 2nd night).

 

Scripture explicitly says 3 days and 3 nights. No equivocation and a clear statement.

 

Most Christians are being taught improperly! By the teachings we can openly see that 2 nights and 1 day do not fulfill God’s Word!

 

Jesus said that He would be in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights as proof that He was the son of God. If what God said was not  fulfilled then Jesus was not the Son of God!

 

Let’s look at why religious leaders taught that the crucifixion occurred on a Friday.

 

We all know that Saturday is considered the Sabbath. But we must realize that there is the Sabbath of every week and an annual Sabbath!  In the Jewish teachings the day before a holy day is called a ‘Day of Preparation.’  At the time wherein Jesus lived just as in current times the ‘day of Unleavened Bread is an annual Sabbath. With that known we see that Jesus was crucified on a, ‘Day of Preparation,’ as set forth in God’s Word.

 

Luke 23: 52Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. 53Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. 54It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

 

The ‘Annual Sabbath differs from the weekly Sabbath and this, although hard to grasp, is factual.

 

Also the time we have been taught of Jesus’ death is in error. In the days of Jesus time was measured in military settings and not as we do today.  The 3rdhour was 9 AM , the 6th hour, noon and the 9th hour was, by our time, 3 PM .

 

So, we have learned of the annual Sabbath, the Day of Preparation and the correct time settings.

 

Mark 14: 1Now the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some sly way to arrest Jesus and kill him. 2“But not during the Feast,” they said, “or the people may riot.”

 

Mark 15: 25It was the third hour when they crucified him.

 

Mark 15: 33At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

 

As we see, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, was crucified at 9 AM and died at 3 PM. Contrary to what we have been taught Jesus did not hang on the cross for 3 hours, He hung their for 6 hours. Imagine the agony He went through; for you…for you…for me!

 

Now let us regress and establish just what day Jesus was crucified. Remember 3 days and 2 nights?

 

We know by Scripture Mary Magdalene went to the tomb on a Sunday, the first day of the week.

 

Mark 16: 2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

 

If we look at the entire timeline we learn: On Wednesday morning Jesus was brought before Pilate and sentenced to death. He was crucified at 9 AM and died at 3 PM. Wednesday evening Jesus was buried. Thursday was the ‘annual Sabbath, the first of Unleavened Bread. Friday was the weekly preparation day preceding the weekly Sabbath and Saturday was the Sabbath.

 

Now count the days and nights.

 

Wednesday night, (1st night), Thursday night, (2nd night) and Friday night, (3rdnight), constitutes 3 nights. Thursday, (1 day), Friday, (2nd day), and Saturday, (3rd day).

 

Consulting all time studies we learn that Jesus was crucified April 25, The First Day of Unleavened Bread fell on April 26. Friday was the 27th and Saturday, the 28th was the weekly Sabbath.

Although man has changed actual dates, man has not changed the days of the week.  Wednesdays remained Wednesdays and the Jewish calendar stands in support of the days of events.

 

With this being so, Scripture was fulfilled, proving Jesus Christ to be the Messiah, our Lord and Savior.

 

When Mary Magdalene went to the tomb wherein Jesus had lain she saw an angel.

 

Luke 24: 6He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee7‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ “

 

On the third day,’ Saturday, the evening before, Christ arose from the dead!

 

With this said there is nothing in the Bible, God’s Word, to support a Friday crucifixion or a Sunday resurrection! NOTHING!

 

Matthew 24:  4Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you “

 

Revelation 12: 9The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.    

 

Satan has been deceiving man for 6,000+ years and will not stop until Jesus Christ stops him. Unwitting Pastors continue to give us teachings that are not in God’s Word and they, themselves, must learn the Word of God as it is written.

 

You may ask why this is so important. What difference does it make?

 

Why?

 

If you try to teach anyone of Christianity and teach that person that God’s Word is true in every sense then tell that person that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior was crucified on Friday and resurrected on Sunday, you are teaching false Scripture! No matter how you add it up, a Friday crucifixion with a Sunday resurrection allow 2 nights and 1 day! Jesus Himself said, on many occasions, 3 days and 3 nights. Even the people who watched Jesus die in the cross knew that!

 

Mark 15: 29Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30come down from the cross and save yourself!”

 

When you teach God’s Word you must speak in truth. You must not rely on teachings that are not of God’s Word! Remember, as a Christian you are a follower of Christ. As such you must speak undeniable words as God taught you!

 

(Closing prayer)

 

Almighty God, Father of us all, we come to You with praise on our lips and with love in our hearts. We bow in worship to You and ask that You accept our worship and render Your blessings upon us.

 

Lord, You gave us Your Beloved Son and had Him die for our sins. Disbelief in Jesus as the Messiah allowed men, who were cold hearted, to turn their backs on Him and deliver death through crucifixion to Him. For this we cry in our hearts. At the same time we cry we are able to rejoice at the resurrection of Your Son as You had prophesied many times.

 

Father, allow us to understand the Words You have delivered to us and to embrace the meaning thereof. It is with humble hearts that we seek You and the happiness of eternal lives with You in Paradise . Thank You Lord and enlighten our minds.

 

Father, as ever we ask for the protection of Your sons and daughters who stand to protect us from earthly harm. Whether they are in military service or in governmental service we ask that You watch over them and be with them at time of peril.

 

Lord, there is also the matter of our own government failing to correctly do our bidding and acting with only their own wishes for their purposes. At this time we ask that You intervene in our behalf and do as You wish for us and instill in our hearts the peace that only You can give.

 

We pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Lord and Savior, who is one with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,

 

Amen, amen and amen.

Lord Jesus, as I watched this video I cried, I was outraged, and I cried some more. Lord Jesus, I pray Your Holy Spirit upon this land, upon these people, and upon the innocents who are given the choice by Hamas to either submit or die, after being tortured. Lord Jesus, I ask that whoever watches this video will pray, and send thousands upon thousands of angels to Israel, to the Jewish people, to the Palestinians, and yes, even to Hamas, that they would come to know You as their Lord and Savior, in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

Pell Grants And Illegal Aliens ~ A Florida Teacher Speaks Out

LETTER BY A
FLORIDA TEACHER

A TEACHER
SPEAKS OUT

This is a
Subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have
Adult students at the school where I teach who are NOT
U.S. Citizens and who get the PELL
Grant, which is a federal grant (no
Payback required) plus other federal grants to go
To school?

One student from the Dominican Republic
Told me that she didn’t want me to find a job for her
After she finished my program, because she was getting
Housing from our housing department and
She was getting a PELL Grant which paid for her total
Tuition and books, plus money leftover.

She
Was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT
CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which
Is a special program (check it out – I did) for
Immigrants and it pays for child
Care and all sorts of needs while they go to
School or training. The one student I just mentioned
Told me she was not going to be a U.S. Citizen because
She plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday
And that she ‘loves HER country.’

I asked her
If she felt guilty taking what the U.S. Is giving her
And then not even bothering to become a citizen and
She told me that it doesn’t bother her, because that
Is what the money is there for!

I asked the
CARIBE administration about their program and if you
ARE a U.S. Citizen, you don’t qualify for their
Program. And all the while, I am working a full day,
My son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and
Everyone in my family works and pays for our
Education.

Something is wrong here. I am
Sorry, but after hearing that they want to sing the
National Anthem in
Spanish – enough is enough. That’s a real slap in the
Face. It was written by Francis Scott Key and
Should be sung word for word the way it was written.
The news broadcasts even gave the translation — not
Even close.

I don’t
Care whether this offends someone or not but this is
MY COUNTRY. IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please
Pass this along. I am not against immigration — I
Just expect immigrants to come through like everyone
Else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head;
Have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND
LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the
Past — and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

PART OF THE PROBLEM – Think about this: If you
Don’t want to forward this for fear of offending
Someone – YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It is Time for
America to speak up. If you agree — pass this along,
If you don’t agree — delete
It!

NYPD Bows To Islam At Annual Pre-Ramadan Conference

NYPD bows to Islam at annual Pre-Ramadan Conference

Posted on July 30, 2011 by creeping sharia

It’s that time of year again. Considering Ramadan is known as the month of jihad and victory in Islam, shouldn’t the NYPD be protecting non-Muslims during this volatile period? via NYPD Press Release – NYPD HOSTS MUSLIM COMMUNITY AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS AT ANNUAL PRE-RAMADAN CONFERENCE.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly welcomed approximately 400 people to the Police Department’s pre-Ramadan conference Wednesday at Police Headquarters, an annual event for community members and police about the coming Muslim religious observance. Imam Mohamed Shamsi Ali of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York delivered the opening and closing prayers.

More on Shamsi Ali here.

“New York is a city built on religious tolerance. Respecting each other’s faiths – and recognizing what we all have in common – are key to what makes this the world’s most diverse and welcoming city,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Despite the incredible progress we’ve made in recent years in stamping out bigotry and racism, hate-based acts of vandalism and other outrages still occasionally occur. And last week’s terrible events in Norway remind us that there will always be extremists, and that some of them harbor violent fantasies. So we cannot drop our guard, we will not drop our guard and the NYPD never does. We want all followers of Islam in the city to have a safe Ramadan and we are going to do everything we can to ensure that.”

Wow. Did they ever make the same statement for followers of any other religion?

“The terrorist attacks in Norway last week were another reminder of the threat posed by intolerance and extremism,” Commissioner Kelly said. “Although we know of no plans against the Muslim community in New York, we’ll take whatever steps necessary to ensure a safe and peaceful Ramadan for every worshipper.”

Immediately following the July 22 car bomb attack in Oslo and subsequent shooting spree on Utoya Island, the Police Department heightened patrols around Scandinavian consulates and major government buildings in all five boroughs. In addition, a detective with the NYPD overseas liaison program was dispatched from London to Oslo to gather information.

Any action taken since Thursday when a Muslim was arrested prior to waging jihad on Fort Hood or the countless other arrests of Muslims planning jihad against Americans? Maybe, but none worth mentioning to the lowly infidels.

During Ramadan the Department increases foot posts around mosques and assigns patrol cars to houses of worship and select areas, as well as deploys additional anti-crime officers to deter burglaries. In addition, NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force officers visit mosques to facilitate reporting of possible bias incidents and to provide hate crime awareness training.

The Islam Tax.

Members of the NYPD Youth Cricket League, including the Brooklyn-based Pak Stallions who on Tuesday won the league championship, were recognized at Wednesday’s event, along with members of the Muslim Officers Society, a fraternal organization established in 2008.

Since 2002, the NYPD has distributed guidelines to commanders which overview the observance period and provide precinct personnel with detailed information on prayers and other activity during Ramadan.

In other words, since Muslims attacked NYC in 2001 killing nearly 3,000 people and destroying the World Trade Centers, the NYPD has given the Ummah extra protection. The NYPD has been infiltrated.

And just for knowing – the Muslim Officers Society links from its website to all the major Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States. Compare lists below.

Martial Law In #Florida!

Busting Posse Comitatus: Military Cops Arrest Civilians in Florida City

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
July 28, 2011

 

In Homestead,
Florida, Posse Comitatus is dead. The Air Force now responds to civilian crime
in the small city, population around 30,000.

Military “crime stoppers” violate
Posse Comitatus in Florida. Photo from Homestead ARB website.

“Here at Homestead Air Reserve Base we have the Crime Stop hotline that
allows anyone either on base or off the installation to anonymously report a
crime,” explains the Homestead Air Reserve Base website. “If you know of a crime
that has been committed, if you see a crime in progress, or if you see a
suspicious person, vehicle, or situation that makes you feel a crime may be
occurring, call the Security Forces Crime Stop Hotline…”

 

On July 15, military police – known as Security Forces patrolmen – detained a
criminal suspect at a Circle K in until Miami-Dade police arrived.

 

“Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility, the better informed we are the safer we
can make the installation and the surrounding community,” said t. Juan Lemus,
Security Forces Police Services Chief.

 

Crime prevention off military bases is the responsibility of civilian police,
not the military. In 1878, following Reconstruction, the Posse Comitatus Act was
passed. It limited the powers of the federal government to use the military for
law enforcement. The statute prohibits Army and Air Force personnel and units of
the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement
capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the
Constitution or Congress.

 

Infowars.com has reported numerous violations of Posse Comitatus since
September 11, 2001.

In 2009, the National Guard provided “security” in Kingman, Arizona. The
Coast Guard, under the Department of Homeland Security, is now exempt from the Act.

 

The military participated in a checkpoint along with Tennessee cops and
Homeland Security in April of 2009. The governor and state representatives were
not aware of the illegal collaboration when contacted by the Alex Jones
Show.

 

In 2008, the Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center and the California
Highway Patrol used the Christmas holiday as an excuse to collaborate on a drunk driving checkpoint in San Bernardino
County.

 

Following a shooting in Alabama, the Army was dispatched from Fort Rucker to
patrol the streets of Samson in 2009.

 

Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl called in the National guard to help in
“domestic” disputes in 2009. Ravenstahl used a snow emergency as an excuse. He
went on television and said “be advised that you will begin to see National
Guard Humvees in some of your neighborhoods beginning this evening.”

 

The above represents just a small sampling of the military violating Posse
Comitatus. The Act was violated in earnest following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The devastating storm proved to be a beta test for military violations of the
law.

 

NORTHCOM announced in 2008 it would use battle-hardened troops
from Iraq for “civil unrest and crowd control” in the United States. On
September 30, 2008, the Pentagon announced the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st
Brigade Combat Team would be an “on-call federal response force for natural or
manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks,” the Army Times reported.

 

The mission soon expanded from disasters to every day police activity.

 

The firewall between military and civilian police duties was demolished with
the passage of H.R. 5122, also known as the John Warner National Defense
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007. It allowed the president to declare
martial law under revisions to the Insurrection Act, and take charge of United
States National Guard troops without state governor authorization when public
order has been lost and the state and its constituted authorities cannot enforce
the law.

 

The bill was repealed in 2008, but this has not stopped the military,
numerous federal agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security from blurring
the distinctions between military, federal and local police
responsibilities.

 

According to John R. Brinkerhoff, acting associate director for national
preparedness of FEMA from 1981 to 1983, “the Posse Comitatus Act is not only
irrelevant but also downright dangerous to the proper and effective use of
military forces for domestic duties.”

 

Brinkerhoff cites the Quadrennial Defense Review for 2001 that has declared
homeland security to be the primary mission of the Department of Defense.

 

Brinkerhoff is a longtime martial law advocate. He borrowed his ideas on
martial law from then FEMA director, Louis O. Guiffrida. In 1970 at the Army War
College, Guiffrida outlined his plan for martial law in case of a national
uprising by black militants. The paper advocated the roundup and transfer to
“assembly centers or relocation camps” of at least 21 million “American
Negroes,” the Miami Herald reported on July 5, 1987, during the Iran-Contra
hearings.

 

Canceling Posse Comitatus is not about a benevolent Pentagon helping strapped
local officials and over-burdened local cops save people from car accidents or
the ravages of hurricanes and tornadoes. It has little to do with rioting
“Negroes.”

 

It’s about imposing martial law. Propaganda campaigns portraying uniformed
soldiers wielding the jaws of life soften people up for the presence of troops
on the streets. Military checkpoints in California and Tennessee have nothing to
do with drunk drivers or seat belts. They acclimate the public to soldiers
manning checkpoints like they do in Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

The Quadrennial Defense Review for 2001′s declaration that homeland security
is the primary mission of the Department of Defense is particularly dangerous
now that the government with the help of the corporate media has shifted the
threat of terrorism from distant cave-dwelling Muslims to local “far right”
extremists.
