Shalom Brothers and Sisters when Yahshua died and rose on the 3rd day it was the beginning of a New Day. All that he had done was complete and finished on the 7th day (Sabbath). From my understanding Yahshua died on a Wednesday and was buried that night which was the start of the 3 nights in the grave.
- 1st Night- Wed night (15th day of the 1st month)/ 1st Day- Thursday morning
- 2nd Night- Thursday night (16th day of 1st month)/ 2nd Day-Friday morning
- 3rd Night- Friday night (beginning of Sabbath- 17th day of 1st month)/3rd Day-Saturday morning
This is very interesting to me because according to this everything was finished on the 7th day (Sabbath Day). It is as if God (The Creator) rested on the 7th Day because the work that Yahshua did while on the earth ended on the 7th day. The result that God saw which was good is now the New Creation in Man through Christ. Genesis 2:2 states, “On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work.”
Yahshua is the Son of God and he is also called the Son of Man because he was born on the earth. Yahshua is our example of becoming the Spiritual Man. When we are born again we become a New Man. Yahshua represents the New Creation in Man. Yahshua appeared to Mary and his disciples on the 8th Day which is the 1st Day of the week (Sunday) and it represents a New Beginning. We have the ability to receive a New Mind if we allow the Spirit to transform us.
When Yahshua returns to the Earth, the dead will be raised and those of us who are alive when he returns will be changed and caught up to the clouds. One of our rewards is to receive an incorruptible body and that’s the new body. The mortal body will be clothed in immortality and we will live forever. That immortal body is going to be glorious and we are going to have the ability to ascend and descend to and from heaven just like Yahshua and the angels. All things will be made new and he will rule the New Heaven and the New Earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 states, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Corinthians 15:51- 54 states, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
One thing that is very important is that Yahshua’s mortal body did not decay in the grave, but his body was raised up and it was changed. It’s very interesting to think that those who will be alive at Yahshua’s second coming will experience some type of transformation in their mortal body and at this point death will be swallowed up in victory. He makes all things new so there will be no more death. Death was swallowed up in victory when he died and resurrected. When he returns to the earth in the end death will be officially swallowed up in victory because this is the time when all things will be made new. The dead in Christ and the living will receive their glorified bodies at the 7th trumpet. The dead in Christ are in a spiritual realm called Paradise which is in the 3rd Heaven, and they are waiting for the time of resurrection. We who are alive on the earth are waiting for this day to arrive so we can meet them in the air with Yahshua.
The New Creation has already begun and the New Day started when Yahshua rose and resurrected. This whole time man has been going through a process of transformation and everything will be completed and finished when he returns to the earth at his Second Coming. We are on a spiritual journey right now and in the end we will be made complete and perfect in the sight of the Most High. When Yahshua returns he is coming with our new bodies and we will be caught up and transformed. The Last Day is the 3rd day and it’s on the Sabbath Day. It’s possible that Yahshua will come down on a Sabbath Day or during a Feast Day. We know that the Sabbath Day is the 7th Day of the Week and the number 7 means completion. In the beginning everything was finished on the 7th day (Sabbath Day) and it’s most likely that it will be finished on the 7th Day in the end. Revelation 22:13 states, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
A New Day began at sunset on Saturday and it was the beginning of the 8th day, the New Beginning to the New Creation. I want people to really think about what they truly want in life. Ask yourselves these questions and meditate on these things to evaluate yourself. Have you truly been born again? Are you walking in the spirit? Have you put away your old self? Are you allowing the Most High to heal your broken heart? Psalm 147:3 states, “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.” Are you allowing the Most High to transform you into a new person by the renewing of your mind? Romans 12:2 states, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Advice to all people who desire to live a New Life in Christ.
Colossians 3:1-16 states, Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.
So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus (Yahshua), giving thanks through him to God the Father.
Living as Children of Light
Ephesians 4:17-31 states, “With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity. But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body. And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.”Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil. If you are a thief, quit stealing. Instead, use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need. Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
