TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“They will flog Him and kill Him; and on the third day He will rise again”
(Luke 18:33, AMP).

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Every year all over the world, people honor Good Friday as they day Jesus was crucified. It was the darkest, most painful, discouraging day of His life. To others, it looked as if it was over. It looked as if His enemies had gotten the best of Him. But God had other plans. Jesus’ enemies put Him in the grave on Friday celebrating their victory, but Sunday morning was a different story. The grave could not hold Him. Death couldn’t contain Him. The forces of darkness couldn’t stop Him. On the third day, Jesus came out of the grave and He said, “I was dead, but now I am alive forevermore.”

One principle that the resurrection teaches us is that God will always finish what He started. No matter how dark it looks, no matter how long it’s been, no matter how many people are trying to push you down; if you will stay in faith, God will always take you from Friday to Sunday. You will see your day of breakthrough because God will complete what He started.

If you are going through a dark time today, remember that your day of resurrection, your “Sunday” is on the way! Keep standing, keep believing, because soon you will rise up into the higher places He has in store for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father in heaven, thank You for Your resurrection power that is alive in me. I choose to keep my eyes on You, the Author and Finisher of my faith. Thank You that my day of breakthrough is on its way! In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

    Amen! There is no greater hope than our faith in the resurrection power of God. For the believer, death of the mortal body should not be a momment of sorrow because it is the beginning of the greatest gift of everlasting life.

    Happy Easter everyone!

    In Matthew 12:38, some of the scribes and Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign to prove He was the Messiah.
    (Matthew 12:40)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.
    How can we fit “three days and three nights” between a Friday afternoon crucifixion and entombment just before sundown and a Sunday morning resurrection at sunrise? This traditional view allows for Jesus to have been in the tomb for only a day and a half.

    So which is it? Is something wrong with Christ’s words, or is something wrong with the traditional view of when and how long He was in the tomb?
    Let’s carefully examine the details from the Gospels. When we do, we uncover the real story of how Jesus’ words were fulfilled precisely.
    Over to you Nine Chale.

    #5 thats an interesting observation.Could it be that Jesus wasn’t talking of his death and resurrection when he referred to the son of man being in the heart of the earth for 3 days and 3 nights? if so what was he referring to then?
