Six days before (John 12:1) the Passover, Jesus comes to town on Sunday riding on the back of a young ass (John 12:12,13). And in the morning (Monday), Jesus curses the fig tree (Matthew 21:18). And in the morning (Tuesday), the authority of Jesus is questioned by the chief priest (Mark 11:20, 27). It appears that Judas betrayed and sold Jesus to the chief priest for 30 pieces of silver on Wednesday (Mark 14:10). Thursday, was the first day before Passover (Mark 14:12). And as soon as it was day, Friday, (Luke 22:66). And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath Saturday drew on (Luke 23:53,54).
At the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week Sunday, (Matthew 28:1). All four gospels make it plain that the body of Jesus was resurrected on Easter Sunday morning, (See Mark 16:2; Luke 24:1; and John 20:1). The church at large worships the Lord on this day. He not only overcame the grave, He overcame sin, Satan, and death. Sunday now has greater emphasis over any other day of the week; it is a day of rest and a day of a new beginning. We call it the Lord’s Day and rightfully so, indeed, it is.
The word Sunday is not recorded in the King James Version of Scripture. The term Third Day with reference to Sunday and His resurrection is recorded by way of counting 15 times alone in the gospels. In our day there is very little reverence for Sunday. Commerce, sports, the work force, and pleasure have done well, silencing our respect in worshipping Him.
On Sunday, Jesus overcomes all adversities. Come, see the place where the Lord lay (Matthew 28:6). Consider what was in the path of Jesus before Sunday, such as mocked trials, scourging, crucifixion, and the grave. The roadblocks were everywhere and yet He conquered each of them. Death is swallowed up in victory (I Corinthians 15:54).
On Sunday, the stone was rolled away. The angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door (Matthew 28:2). Even at the proposed burial site today, the tomb is open. The world may enter that sepulcher today.
On Sunday, there is a victorious message from the angels. Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, (Matthew 28:5). Amen!
On Sunday, He is seen alive. And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive (Luke 24:23). Glory be!
On Sunday, you will find life’s answers. That like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4). Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become (instantly) new. See II Corinthians 5:17. No problem, brother!
It seems to me…If you think on what took place on Sunday, it will prepare you for life.
