The GREATEST 3 Days and 3 Nights... The SIGN of JONAH

And even as Jonah was in the belly
of the huge fish
3 days and 3 nights,
so shall the Son of Man +
 be in the heart of the earth
3 days and 3 nights.
Matthew 12:40
Green's Greek Interlinear
Let's count:
Crucifixion occurred on  a "Wednesday" at 9 a.m.; the sky was darkened at noon; the battle was finished at 3 p.m. exactly. Thus, at 3 p.m. Wednesday began ...
the first NIGHT in the heart of the earth:
First DAY in the heart of the earth: "Thursday" day.

Second NIGHT in the heart of the earth: "Thursday" night.
Second DAY in the heart of the earth: "Friday" day.

Third NIGHT in the heart of the earth: "Friday" night.
Third DAY in the heart of the earth: "Saturday" day.

Resurrection: at 3 p.m. exactly, Saturday... Precise to the minute, as GOD always is.

The Sisters did not see HIM+ , however, until early, early Sunday morning , before dawn. They did not see HIM+ at the precise moment of His+ Resurrection; HE+ was already risen ! The stone had already been rolled away when they arrived at the tomb.

CHRIST'S first words from His+ Cross were to His+ FATHER:

"FATHER, forgive them;
for they know not
what they do."

O Holy LAMB of GOD, receive our worship. We love THEE+ for Thy Sacrifice, O Blessed Savior+... Thy+ great sacrifice that covers all of our sins and ignorances.

Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? Behold and see if there be any sorrow like unto My+ sorrow which is done unto ME+, wherewith The LORD hath afflicted in the day of HIS fierce anger. Lamentations of Jeremiah 1:12.

O Holy LAMB of GOD, we worship THEE+ and praise THY+ Name for bearing such sorrow --- the sin of the world --- for us, miserable sinners all; we bless THEE+ for Thy+ compassion towards mankind, towards us, towards me.

But I+ am a worm , and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. Psalm 22:6

O Holy LAMB of GOD, we bless THEE+ for carrying the reproaches that should have fallen upon us from GOD .  We bless THEE+ and love THEE+ for being unjustly despised of the people ... when we should be justly despised by GOD for our sin-filled nature. We thank THEE+, O Holy ONE+.

All they that see ME+ laugh ME+ to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head. HE+ trusted on The LORD that HE would deliver Him+; let HIM deliver Him+, seeing HE delighted in Him+.  Psalm 22: 7, 8 and Matthew 27: 42, 43

O Precious LAMB of GOD, we love THEE+ with all our heart. We do not set THEE+ at nought; nay, we defend THEE+ with everything inside of us. We defend THEE+ before men who speak against THEE+ and before the invisible, unseen beings that try to accuse THEE+. We go against THEE+ in nothing.

We praise THEE+ and we offer praise to Our GREAT HOLY FATHER Who delivered THEE+ with a mightier victory than what mankind could foresee. Amen.
