Today is the day they laid the lifeless dead body of Jesus in a rich mans tomb, and closed it up with a stone. They had spent time with him and seen the wonderful miracles he’d performed here in his time on earth, he had explained to them many times of his death, burial and resurrection, but Jesus was dead, his blood was gone, there was no heartbeat no air coming into his lungs, he was gone, just like thousands of people before him that had died. As he lay there I’m sure panic and fear swirled in the minds of his disciples and followers thinking, “did we understand him right?” “ no one comes back from death.” And what a horrible death it was… “ was he the messiah?” “ he made a promise, a lot of promises, how is he gonna keep them when he is dead?” “Will he really come back one day?”
In this time of uncertainty and silence they were not sure about their future as followers of Yeshua Jesus in this silent and uncertain time…. just like the the followers of Jesus we are in a time of uncertainty… Yahweh has given us many promises in his Holy Word the Bible and just like when Jesus rose from the dead and kept his promises so does Yahweh keep his promises, he loves you today. May we cling to his promises in this time of uncertainty.
“Joseph bought a long sheet of linen cloth. Then he took Jesus’ body down from the cross, wrapped it in the cloth, and laid it in a tomb that had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone in front of the entrance.”
“So they sealed the tomb and posted guards to protect it.”
