Good Friday? If we look closely, the Bible tells us it was actually Good Wednesday. Psalm11918.org has created two resources that share our examination of the Gospels and our search for the truth.
Our When Yeshua was Crucified article asks the question "when was Messiah crucified?" and systematically goes through Scripture to uncover the answer. Step by step and verse by verse, we build the list of Biblically-based requirements for the correct date.
When it was originally published, this article prompted so much discussion among our readers that we created an entirely new interactive website devoted to examining Good Friday, Good Thursday, and Good Wednesday options and see which fit bet with the Word of G-d. MessiahsPassoverWeek.info is full of colorful insight that reveals the truth of Scripture.
As the time draws near for Passover, may we all draw near to our Lord and Savior who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
As we wrapped up last month, I said we would take a look at the promise that G-d causes all things to work together for good. Paul wrote about that in his letter to the Romans.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love G-d, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Backing up to Romans 8:22, Paul notes that the "the whole creation groans and suffers" and believers also "groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body." (v23) He makes the point that such a redemption has not yet occurred, for if it had, we would have seen it and "who hopes for what he already sees"? (v 24)
It is in this context of the unseen-and-still-hoped-for redemption of our bodies that Paul says that G-d causes all things to work together for good to those who love G-d, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Does this mean G-d is going to cause us to have a good life... a happy life?
A great marriage?
A successful career?
