Jesus Raised the third day

Lots cast for clothing

Prophecy

"After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight." Hosea 6:2
Fulfillment
"How God anointed

Jesus of Nazareth

with the

Holy Ghost

and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the

devil

; for

God

was with him.  And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the

Jews

, and in

Jerusalem

; whom they slew and

hanged on a tree

:  Him God raised up the

third day

, and shewed him openly;" Acts 10:38-40
An

earthquake

marked the hour when

Christ

laid down His life, and another earthquake witnessed the moment when He took it up in triumph. He who had vanquished

death

and the

grave

came forth from the tomb with the tread of a conqueror, amid the reeling of the earth, the flashing of lightning, and the roaring of thunder.

When He shall come to the earth again, He will shake “not the earth only, but also heaven.” “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage.” “The heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll;” “the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be

burned up.

” But “the Lord will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of

Israel

.” Hebrews 12:26; Isaiah 24:20; 34:4; 2 Peter 3:10; Joel 3:16.

At the

death of Jesus

the soldiers had beheld the earth wrapped in darkness at midday; but at the

resurrection

they saw the brightness of the

angels

illuminate the night, and heard the inhabitants of heaven singing with great joy and triumph: Thou hast vanquished

Satan

and the

powers of darkness

; Thou hast swallowed up death in victory!

Christ came forth from the tomb

glorified

, and the

Roman guard

beheld Him. Their eyes were riveted upon the face of Him whom they had so recently mocked and derided. In this glorified Being they beheld the prisoner whom they had seen in the

judgment hall

, the one for whom they had plaited a crown of thorns. This was the One who had stood unresisting before

Pilate

and

Herod

, His form lacerated by the cruel scourge. This was He who had been

nailed to the cross

, at whom the

priests

and

rulers

, full of self-satisfaction, had wagged their heads, saying, “He saved others; Himself He cannot save.” Matthew 27:42. This was He who had been laid in Joseph’s new tomb. The

decree

of

heaven

had loosed the captive. Mountains piled upon mountains over His sepulcher could not have prevented Him from coming forth.
