Good Friday to Easter Morning Is 1 1/2 Days–Not 3 Days and 3 Nights Like Christ Said

Christ could not have been buried on Good Friday afternoon and resurrected early Easter Sunday morning because that would be only a day and a half in the tomb–about 36 hours.

“So what?” some may ask. “So what if it’s just a day and a half; it was part of three days. The important thing is that we believe that Christ arose.”

Yes, His resurrection is extremely important. But Christ Himself said that we should “dig deep and build our house on the Rock”–Him. We cannot remain superficial on this.

No Other Sign Given–Three days and Three Nights in the Tomb

Christ gave only one sign to unbelieving mankind–one sign that would point out who the true Savior is. His own words: “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).

But how long is a day and night? Christ Himself said that there are “12 hours in the day” (John 11:9). That would mean that there are 12 hours in the night. This gives us the prophetical yardstick. Three 12 hours days is 36 hours; three 12 hours nights equals 36 hours. 36 and 36 is 72 hours total time in the tomb, in the “heart of the earth.”

But What Difference Does It Make?

I’ll answer that question with another question. If “Organized Christianity” can’t even get the one and only sign of the true Messiah right, then how can we trust them to teach us the deeper truths of God?

Hundreds of millions of professing Christians all over the world, many very sincere, will go to their respective church buildings and worship this Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Yet hardly any of them will realize that their pastors, priests, and bishops have taught them error and un-truths concerning their Savior Jesus Christ. How many other falsehoods are they teaching them?

If the Catholic and Protestant Denominations can’t even get the sign of the Savior right, how many other concepts that they teach about Christ and His gospel can be trusted? If they have this sign wrong, how many other doctrines and traditions are wrong as well?

What Is the Fruit of This Error?

I believe that they are teaching a different concept of the Savior and another gospel. Christ said, “You will know them by their fruits.” What is the fruit of all the studies done in all the seminaries with all their doctorates in Theology and Divinity and Philosophy? They have Christ in the tomb 36 hours! Please.

I share this, not to be disrespectful of anyone and their worship. All pilgrims to the Heavenly Jerusalem are at “way stations” at present. But I’m sharing this to alert those “who have an ear to hear” to dig deep! “Prove all things.” Know that if this only sign of the true Savior is off, then something is dreadfully wrong with the whole spiritual building!

I share this, not to be argumentative, but out of concern–a concern that honest seekers of God must be told the truth about this one true sign of who He is.

Yet, Organized Churchianity keeps slugging on, teaching tired old erroneous doctrines like this one–earnestly sharing half-truths, not realizing that “a little leaven (hypocrisy and falsehoods) leaveneth the whole lump.”

Therefore, we are admonished to “purge out the old leaven that the lump may be holy.” We, the spiritual body of Christ, His church, are supposed to be that lump of dough that turns into the bread of life after we suffer the fiery trials of this oven-like existence here on earth. But we have to get rid of false doctrines and false concepts before we can be that holy bread of life that is to be broken and share with those hungering after righteousness. “Take, eat, this is my body.” We, His body, must be holy, and getting this right is a good place to start.

Not of This Earth

The origin of the sons of God transcends any location on earth. They are strangers to earth. Earth is not their home. They are sojourners and pilgrims during their earthbound travels. Their roots go back to the beginning, locked deep down in their Father’s heart. They are not earthlings. They are not of this earth.

For God’s true offspring, life on earth is not really about earthly things. Invisible heavenly things, spiritual things, are driving what is happening for the sons of God while here on earth. But most of God’s sons and daughters do not know their destiny as of now. Their main problem is that they do not know how to walk in the heavenly calling that they are called to. Their problem is that they are thinking from a fleshly, earthly, natural point of view.

Man sees everything this way. He sees it all through the eyes of his own carnal senses. If it cannot be seen with the eyes or heard with the ears, or touched with the fingertips, or tasted with the tongue, or smelled with the nose, then it must not exist! That is natural man’s thinking. But, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things that God hath prepared for those who love Him.”

Natural minded man does not realize that this earth is not just about earthly things! The truth is that the things that are happening here on earth have been put in motion by things that cannot be seen from earth, nor seen by earthlings. This earth is about heavenly things! This earth is not really about earthly things. This earth is about spiritual things. This earth is about invisible things.

This earth is not about things that can be seen right now by the naked eye, nor with telescopes, for that matter. All earthly things, including man, are only temporary things. There is nothing lasting or enduring about them. Nothing of this earth lasts. Everything based on earthly vistas—what can be experienced by the senses—not only will not last, but cannot endure!

Of course, man proves this everyday, for men, women, boys, girls, and infants die daily. They do not endure. Their bodies daily return to dust from whence they came. And their spirits return to Him that passed them out at the first.

Earthly Things Cannot Fulfill a Spiritual Being

This is the reason that the Preacher said in Ecclesiastes, “Vanity of vanities. All is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Everything here on earth vexes a spiritual entity’s being. Earthly things cannot fulfil a spiritual being. Man, a spiritual being, created by God to house Him fully, in vain tries to live a fulfilling life by the acquisition of earthly things, when earthly things cannot suffice a human being, a being designed to be the glory of God, who is an invisible Spirit.

Yet, unregenerate man slugs on in the slop of misguided desires and lusts. These passions are for things that will not satisfy nor endure.

The sons and daughters of God realize that they were put here by a Being that is not of this earth. They see that reality is not earth-based. They realize that they cannot see true reality by looking through earthly eyes. Man can only endure by seeing things other than earthly things.

It is a heavenly vision, a heavenly faith, a heavenly destiny, a heavenly plan, a heavenly purpose, a heavenly blueprint, a heavenly design, a heavenly way, a heavenly thought of a heavenly Father, who is above all this on earth and is in us whom He has called.

To think earthly is to be in darkness. He has called us out of darkness into the heavenly light. To be earthly-minded is sure death in the darkness, for what seems to be our earthly life is really only a walking death. Remember when the Savior told them to let the dead bury their dead?

To continue to think in an earthly way is a recipe for death. “Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires. But those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires” (Romans 8:5, NIV).

As long as our earthly bodies dictate what we do or say, we walk in death. That hold on our minds by the fleshly desires of our earthly bodies only will pass when we believe that our old carnal heart at its core is crucified with the Savior. When He died, we died. When He rose, we rose. But that is very difficult to believe because we cannot sense it with our five senses. It takes a spiritual sixth sense to see from whence the miracle is derived. It is something that must be believed without seeing the evidence before hand.

To even get out of the old and to get into the new life, we must believe in a spiritual being who does the saving. We have to believe in a Being we cannot see with our earthly eyes. We must believe in someone who is invisible, who is not of this earth, someone who calls us somehow with a calling that is not of this earth, calls us with a heavenly calling, and urges us in mysterious ways to appear to choose His heavenly way against the better judgement of our earthly unbelieving senses—a someone who brings us into a place where we will repudiate all that we see here on earth and count it all as dung that we may win an invisible race for an invisible heavenly spiritual Supreme Being.

An enlightened man takes in this light—light that nothing earthly is as it seems. Everything is tricky here, slippery, treacherous, hypocritical, deceiving. Man is crooked, undependable, self-centered and prideful.

There is a group of human beings who are beginning to realize that this walk here is a spiritual thing and not an earthly thing. They realize that they are in the world but their spirit is not of the earth. They realize that they are really strangers here on earth, that they are not really from the earth, that they are heavenly and spiritual, that they have become blind to the earthly desires and temptations.

They realize that they are looking for their home which is a four square city full of light that has 12 foundations where it never gets dark. That city, the New Jerusalem, is their home, which one day will literally come down out of heaven and set down right here on earth. And they believe this having never seen it with their earthly eyes.

Dr. Ben Carson’s Common Sense Defense of God at CPAC

Finally.  Someone on the national stage is making sense.  Here are some of Dr. Carson’s words about God at CPAC:

“We have to resist this war on God.  People don’t want to talk about God, and ‘don’t you dare ever mention Jesus Christ!’  And this is supposed to be a country where we have freedom of religion and freedom of speech?  It is absolutely absurd.

“Let’s let everybody believe what they want to believe.  And that means, P. C. police, don’t you be coming down on the people who believe in God and who believe in Jesus.  If they want to put something out that shows their belief, they have every right to do that…

“And we have to live by godly principles of loving your fellow man, of caring about your neighbor, and developing your God given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you–of having values and principles that guide your life.  And if we do that, we not only will become a pinnacle nation, but we will truly be one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

I wish this man was president instead of Barack Obama, who divides and conquers.  As Dr. Carson brought out, a nation divided against itself cannot stand.

“Don’t Lay Up Treasures on Earth”–Christ’s Words About the Time of the End

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” said the Savior (Matt. 6: 19-20). Why did He tell us this?

Our first response might be that we need to think about God and not ourselves. True. True. But a deeper reason looms very large as we prepare for the sixth seal to be opened.

Certainly God’s sons and daughters see that the treasures of money and material wealth are fleeting and ephemeral, that the present money system of the world is a sham and a scam duping the masses into believing that they either have or are striving for real material wealth. We got that.

But also the Savior is warning us about striving for the treasures of power and prestige and fame and fortune.

Why not strive for this, other than God does not like for us to? The real reason is that this current world system–the governments, religions, and the economic systems–all of them will fail, fall, and crumble during the soon coming “time of the end.”

His directive to not trust and lay up the riches of this world system has held true for 2,000 years. In centuries past personal treasures failed through the death of the possessor of the treasures. He would die having to leave it all for the next generation to enjoy (Ecc 6: 2).

Solomon literally had it all. He was the richest man in the world with power, honor, and prestige. This included 600 wives and 300 concubines and palaces full of gold and precious stones. Yet he concluded that “all is vanity.” Everything this world can offer is just “chasing the wind,” which is what the Hebrew word translated “vanity” means. In short, a man will die and leave it all to–we can’t be sure who will get it, can we? Not really.

And then there is the very real possibility that your country will go belly up economically. In history, all–100% of the economies of the world–all who went to fiat paper money, their currencies failed, and untold fortunes were lost.

Treasures will fail also if revolution engulfs your country. The story is so common, that some say it is history, the taking of one civilization by another. And material treasures and fortunes are lost or taken by another…

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth…” Christ’s words ring down through the halls of history to our day. And our day has special significance, for it is very close to the time of the end. Christ’s return to this earth draws nigh. We are living in the last of the last days, the latter days.

And it is at this time of the end of this world system that the greatest loss of personal treasures will take place. For just before He returns, there will be “great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matt. 24: 21).

This “time of trouble” is horrendous. It is called by the prophets “the day of the LORD” (1). It is the total destruction of this world’s current economic, political, and religious systems. Those heaping up personal treasures of all kinds will not be happy, for they will lose it all.

But for His elect, His followers and supporters, after the cataclysm they will see Christ set up His new government. And because He is the King, it is called the Kingdom of Heaven, for like its King, this government originates from heaven.
There will be much work for His followers to do, for the earth will be in rubble after the asteroids and tidal waves and wars and calamities.

This last scenario is especially why He told His people to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you” (Matt. 6: 33).

Our take away from all this? Those still trying to chase the wind of earthly riches and treasures when Christ returns are going to miss it. They will miss His kingdom, and they will ultimately miss all of their dreams of riches and treasures for themselves and their families. It is going to be a sad day for those on the wrong side of history. Kenneth Wayne Hancock
