A day of quiet, solitude, and aloneness. Jesus went to the cross alone, laid in the tomb alone, and he alone delivered our present sin and future sin, to hell! A day of reverence during this Holy Week is required for those who love him and are the beneficiaries of his kindness. A lot happened in the spiritual world, things we know nothing about, but our celebration continues as Jesus proves that what he said about himself is true, when he was resurrected from the dead to become our King forever.
Even as we face destruction in this day and age, we know the ending because he told us. Have no fear, strengthen your faith, and honor Jesus for what he has done, and will do for us in the days to come.
The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate and said, “Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise.’ Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first.” Matthew 27:62-64
