The day of the Lord will come upon all people, and they will not know from what time or from what place the trouble has arrived. —Matthew 24:27 The phrase “the Day of the Lord” is connected to three main events in Jesus’s final days on earth. These are his betrayal by Judas, his trial before the Sanhedrin and then Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. There are however, many other prophecies about this day which have yet to be fulfilled. The fact that Jesus knew this means we can too. If you ask any believer why these things happened as they did, you’ll get a variety of answers. Some may speculate that God was punishing humanity for sin; others may point out how it was part of God’s plan; while others may say it was part of God’s loving discipline. But none of these answers address why these things could not happen on another day or at another time? Here are 7 reasons why death couldn’t hold Jesus Christ:
He Was Mustafa.
Jesus was a Palestinian Jew and the son of Mary. He was born in Bethlehem to a family of small-time carpenters, so it’s safe to assume that he would have been poor. The Gospel of Luke records that at age 12 Jesus began his ministry as an itinerant preacher. Jesus had no formal education, but he knew how to read and write Hebrew and Greek. For example, Luke 4:16–20 tells us that Jesus is teaching in the synagogue when one of the scribes (a Jewish teacher) asks him what is meant by “the scripture saying ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me’?”
His Death Sentence Was Void.
Jesus had the power to break the laws of death and this was a key feature of his not only physical incarnation, but also his spiritual one. Jesus’s death sentence was not binding on him because he had the power to pronounce it void. Human beings are sentenced to death by God and Jesus’s crucifixion was just a representation of what God wants for humanity. This means that Judas, Pilate, and all people were really sentenced to death by God in the same way that Christ was.
Jesus Had a Time Machine.
The Bible says that Jesus was “the first born of every creature.” (Colossians 1:15) Since he was the first to come into existence, Jesus had a time machine and knew his death would happen on a certain day. He also knew when it would happen in history and what events would happen before his death.
Jesus also said that he came for those whom God had given up on, which means that he came for people who were physically dead. This is another sign that Jesus had a time machine. It wasn’t until after his resurrection that people began to believe in him again, which means he came back in time to inspire those who were dead not long before his arrival.
Jesus also could’ve prevented the crucifixion since he knew what was going to happen beforehand.
The Events Were Anticipated by the Prophets of His Day.
Jesus Christ is the Messiah. This means that he was expected by all the prophets of his day to be executed on the cross. Jesus knew this, and he called people to come to him before it happened. He could have chosen not to die that day, but in fact he loved us enough to die for us.
He Had an Escape Plan.
Jesus knew that he would eventually die. He even had an escape plan in order to avoid his fate. Though he was willing to die, Jesus made sure that he would not die alone. As a result of this escape plan, Jesus had no fear of what could happen to him and instead relied on his Father to protect him.
There Were Signs in the Heavens.
One of the most common reasons that people point to why death couldn’t hold Jesus is because there were signs in the heavens. For example, in Luke 21:25, Jesus said “the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven.” Another verse that might indicate that Christ was not killed by death on earth is in 2 Samuel 22:12 where it says “So you are come back and have brought me my son Absalom? Now I know that you regret what you have done to me and you have not kept your oath to me.”
The fact is, however, these verses are about David which means they couldn’t happen on that day of the Lord as they do not apply to Christ’s crucifixion. The reason for this is explained in Hebrews 11:35-36 which says “Women received their dead raised to life again. Others were tortured and refused deliverance; still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and more besides. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were put to death by the sword; they went about in sheepskins like goats; under goat-skin capes they go about laughing.” These verses all say that certain people died on earth while others died in heaven so it’s clear that while some people died during Christ’s time on earth he himself didn’t
It’s Not Over Yet!
Jesus’s resurrection is one of the most important events in all of human history. It is the culmination of a long and arduous journey for God to save mankind from their sins, which were so great that Jesus had to die for them. Jesus’s death was not just a single event but instead was a process that took place over 40 days and involved many different events. The first day of the process didn’t happen on Friday, but on Wednesday when he died on the cross. It wasn’t including Sunday when he rose from the dead either; it happened sometime during that week. But today is not finished yet! We have time left before Christ’s Second Coming, which will be preceded by wars and world-wide calamities as we see in the book of Revelation.
