The 5 Hidden Secrets of Jesus Death Unveiled!

Jesus Death on Good Friday

Did Jesus die on a Friday? Scholars around the world believed that Jesus death was either in AD 30 or AD 33. But there are problems:

    • Do the Passover dates in AD 30 and 33 support the 3-day/night resurrection period of Jesus?
    • Were there natural events that could explain what happened during the crucifixion?
    • Do the dates match what was happening at that time, e.g., the two sabbaths and women buying spice for anointing Jesus' body?

Based on the evidence that I have found, I would like to propose that Jesus was crucified and died on Wednesday, April 25, AD 31 instead.

Whoa! You serious? How do you know?

In this article, we will review the evidence using the relevant Bible verses to see if it is beyond reason that the above claim about Jesus' death is true.

But before we begin, it is important to be familiar with the customs and laws practiced by the Jewish people.

    The Jewish/Hebrew Calendar

    The Jewish year can be quite complicated. Apparently, they have different months to commemorate the start of different Jewish new years e.g., "civil year"

    The Hebrew year starts with the first day of Nisan, Abib, or Aviv. It is also known as the New Year for kings and festivals. This is the month when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt after the Passover.

    "This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you."  -  Exodus 12:1

    Hebrew Time

    The hours and days of a week are also different from what we are used to.

    For us, our days start from midnight to midnight i.e. 0001 hour is the start of our new day until midnight the next day.  But the Jewish day starts from 6pm to the following day 5pm..

    The Jewish day is divided into 12 parts in the day and 12 parts at night.

    The Hebrew daylight is from 6am (1st hour) to 6pm (12 hour) while the Hebrew night is from 6pm (1st hour) to 6am (12 hour). In other words, one Hebrew day starts with nightfall until the next day night fall.

    But how do they know the hour of the day?

    The ancient Jews did not carry watches, so in order to tell time, they would base it on the position of the sun.

    The equivalent time estimates for the following hours mentioned in the Bible are:

    •  "3rd hour" - 9am
    • "6th hour" - 12 noon
    • "9th hour" - 3pm

    The days of the week have different names too. The week starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday and ends the next Saturday at 6 p.m. You can read more on Hebrew week HERE.

    Definitions of Hebrew Time:

    • Evening - either refers to late afternoon just before sunset or after sunset
    • Sunset - when the sun is no longer visible
    • Twilight - the time between sunset and the time when three medium stars appear in the sky
    • Dusk - when there is no more sunlight visible
    • Night - darkness after sunset

    What is the significance of Passover?

    The Passover is the night when the Lord passed over the land of Egypt, killing all the firstborn except those whose doors were covered with the blood of the lamb.

    "And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord's Passover.

     For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.

    And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt."   -  Exodus 12:11-13

    During the Passover, the Israelites hastily ate the Passover meal, waiting for Moses' instructions to leave Egypt.

    So how is the Passover related to Jesus death?

    Christ is the lamb that was slain.

    The angel of death passed over those houses covered by the blood of the lamb, Jesus Christ. When Christ's blood covers you, it means that Christ has bought you and you have become a new creation. Your old self is no more.

    Your new self becomes as a slave of Christ. Christ becomes your Lord and master. And nothing can separate the love of Christ for you, not even death.

    Christians will face physical death - yes - because our physical body is imperfect and sinful. But we are beyond physical death. We will be one with Christ after our physical death.

    Jesus became the sacrificial lamb and died for our sins so that we can become righteous in God's eyes. But there is a catch. This salvation only applies to those who accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour. It is a gift to you but only if you would repent from your sins and accept His free gift. Otherwise, you are lost forever.

    "So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him." Hebrew 9:28

    "Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed."  -1 Corinthians 5:7

    The leaven refers to the yeasts used in the making of our bread. Like the yeast that can cause the entire dough to rise, so can a little sin in your life. The little sin will grow and cause the entire dough to be filled with sin.

    Weekly Sabbath and Passover

    Jews observe a number of special holy days each year. Let's focus on the important ones that occur during the week leading to Jesus' death and crucifixion:

    • Passover: Jews currently celebrate on the afternoon of 15th day of Nisan (this is contrary to what was written in the Bible, which we will look at in more detail below.)
      The 15th day of Nisan is the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread. It is also known as a "High Day" or Holy day of God. (practiced by Jews in the time of Jesus)
    • The 14th day of Nisan is known as preparation day, which is the day before Passover, the 15th Nisan. (practiced by Jews also in the time of Jesus)
    • Weekly Sabbaths fall on our Gregorian Saturdays and will start from Friday at 6 p.m. until Saturday at 6 p.m.

    "Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night."    Deuteronomy 16:1

    However, over the years, Jewish tradition has blurred and combined Passover with the Festival of Unleavened Bread. In view of the proximity of timings, most Jews refer loosely to Passover as the Festival of Unleavened Bread.

    Purification and Defilement

    Jews have laws and rituals to purify themselves when they become defiled.

    It is important to note that when Jews become defiled, especially after touching a dead body, they need to purify themselves. The purification ritual for touching a corpse requires the person to wash and wait seven days before they can be deemed clean.

    "He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days. He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean."     Numbers 19:11-12

    Jewish Burial

    During the time of Jesus, it was custom for Jews to bury their dead quickly. In ancient times, the dead bodies were either placed inside a tomb cut out from rocks or cliffs or, for those who could not afford it, simply buried underground. Spice was generally used to slow the decay process so as that friends of the departed may pay their last respect. After a year, the bones of the deceased were removed and placed in a box known as an ossuary box.

    The Week Leading to Jesus death and Crucifixion

    From Jesus eating the Passover meal with his disciples to his resurrection.

    Matthew 26:17 to Matthew 28:1

    Mark 14:12 to Mark 16:2

    Luke 22:1 to Luke 24:1

    John 13:1 to John  John 20:1

    In summary, the following took place:

    • Jesus ate the Passover (Seder) meal with his disciples after dark.
    • Jesus death took place on a preparation day before a high Sabbath.
    • Jesus rose from the dead after three days and nights
    • There was an earthquake, and the sun was darkened at the time of the crucifixion.
    • Jesus' body was taken down and buried in haste during preparation day. The day before the Passover (Jewish customs tend to equate the Passover with the Feast of Unleavened Bread)
    • The women bought and prepared additional spice for Jesus' body after Passover but before Sunday.
    • There were three important events occurring during the week of the crucifixion 

      • the Passover which falls on 14th Nisan according to Exodus 12
      • the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (high day) which was on 15 Nisan and
      • the weekly sabbath. 

    Piecing the Pieces

    Ok, with the basics out of the way, shall we now look at our first main piece of evidence that will help reframe the timeline for the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus?

    The Sign of Jonah

    "..because just as Jonah was in the stomach of the sea creature for three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights."   Matthew 12:40

    Jesus gave the high priests the sign that he would die and be resurrected after three days and three nights, just like the prophet Jonah. Christians worldwide believe that Jesus died on a Friday and was resurrected on Sunday. How could this be 3 days and 3 nights? Any child will know that it only adds up to about 1.5 to 2 days.

    Did Jesus lie about the "3 days, 3 nights" prophecy?

    If it is not Friday, then when was Jesus death? Let's look deeper

    It is clear from the text that the women went to the tomb on the first day of the Jewish week, which is Sunday morning. If we count backwards from Sunday, 3-days-3-nights would mean Jesus died and was buried sometime on the afternoon of Wednesday before 6 p.m. After 6 p.m., it would be Passover 15 Nisan.

    According to the text, the day when Jesus died was also known as the preparation day. It was on the 14th of Nisan, the day before the Jewish Passover (15 Nisan).

    #1 Jesus death was on Wednesday (14 Nisan) at about 3 pm and buried before 6pm

    The Last Supper

    Did Jesus eat the Passover meal with his disciples?

    Many Christians believe that he did not. How could he be the lamb sacrifice and eat the Passover meal on the same day? But didn't Jesus say that he would eat the Passover meal with his disciples? Did Jesus lie?

    Let's look at what Moses said about eating the Passover meal.

    "Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast..."  Exodus 12:6-8

    "In the first month, you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day."  Exodus 12:18

    "And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of the Lord. And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten."  Numbers 28:16-17

    "The Lord's Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. On the fifteenth day of that month, the Lord's Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast."  Leviticus 23:5-6

    Since the Jewish day starts from 6 p.m. onwards, doesn't the verse above refer to the beginning of the 14th day of Nisan? The above twilight refers to the first few hours after sundown, when it began to become night.

    Currently, the Jews practice eating the Passover meal on the 15th day of Nisan and not the 14th day of Nisan, unlike what was recorded in the Bible above.

    But Jesus wrote the law. He knows the law. Jesus ate the Passover meal exactly as intended, not what the current Jews practiced! The Passover meal is to be eaten on the 14th day of the first month of Nisan, after sundown, at the start of the 14th day of Nisan!.

    #2 Jesus ate the Passover meal with his disciples on the start of the 14th day of Nisan.

    Wait! Did you notice something strange?

    Look at the following verses in the synoptic bible, describing the start and preparation of the Passover meal.

    "Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the Passover?" Matthew 26:17

    "And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the Passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the Passover?" Mark 14:12

    "Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the Passover must be killed." Luke 22:7

    Is there a contradiction when Mark and Matthew wrote about "on the first day of the festival" and Luke with the verse "came the day of unleavened bread"?

    Isn't the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread after Passover?

    Yes. The first day of the feast, according to the Old Testament, is the 15th day of Nisan. However, the translation seems incoherent if it mentions the "first day".

    If you look at the text in Greek, you will find:

    πρώτῃ (protos) - was translated as "first" - but it could also be translated as "before".

    The text would then best be translated as "before the day of unleavened bread, when they had to sacrifice the lambs." Remember that the lambs had to be sacrificed on Nisan 14 at twilight, according to tradition.

    Furthermore, because the Jews had, over the years, combined both Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread as one festival, the authors loosely referred to the 14th day of Nisan as also the start or "day of the unleavened".

    To them, the week of the feast of unleavened bread is the same as Passover week. And Jews were required to remove all "leaven" from their houses on the eve of this feast.

    There is no major contradiction. Let's continue.

    So what is the proposed timeline leading to Jesus death?

    Let's summarize.

    At sunset on Tuesday, 14 Nisan, about 6 p.m. (start of day 14 Nisan), Jesus sent his disciples to prepare the Passover meal. It was the time when the lambs were prepared to be slaughtered. It was the day before the Jewish custom of the Passover meal.

    Does it take long for the disciples to prepare the Passover meal?

    If you look at the requirements of a Seder meal, it is simple but would require a roasted goat or lamb. The meal was eaten at home.

    Jesus had directed the disciples to a specific person's home for the Passover meal. It is very likely that all the food items were already available and ready. The disciples would probably need to arrange the upper room for the last supper or maybe even roast the lamb, which could be roasted in less than an hour.

    Jesus had his Passover meal on the evening (after 6 p.m.) of 14 Nisan. They ate until dark, when Jesus left with his disciples to the garden of Gethsemane, which is at the base of Mount of Olives, to pray.

    Jesus' arrest and trial

    At 14 Nisan (Tuesday night), when it was dark, Judas came to the garden with a crowd of soldiers and chief priests to arrest Jesus.

    "So Judas, having obtained the Roman cohort and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons."   John 18:3

    Jesus was bound and sent to meet with Annas, the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest.

    At 14 Nisan daybreak (Wednesday, 6 a.m.), Jesus was sent to the high priest Caiaphas and the council of elders (Sanhedrin) for questioning. After that, Jesus was brought to the praetorium to meet with Pontius Pilate.

    "Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the Passover." John 18 :28

    Notice that the priests did not enter the hall where the governor was passing sentence for fear of being defiled. Once defiled, the priests would not be able to participate in the Passover meal on 15 Nissan.

    When was Jesus crucified?

    Only Mark of the Synoptic Gospels mentioned the following:

    "And it was the third hour, and they crucified him." Mark 15:25

    However, John said something different:

    "And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!" John 19;14

    Is there a contradiction about the time when Christ was crucified?
    It would seem so. There were many hypotheses to explain the discrepancies, which I will briefly list below, but only the third one, in my opinion, best explains this apparent contradiction.

    • Copyist error writing 3rd and 6th in greek
    • John using Roman timing vs Hebrew timing
    • Subjective estimation of time based on the position of the sun

    The ancient Jews did not carry watches or time-keeping devices like sundials to tell the exact time of the day. The only way to tell the time or approximate timing of the day was the approximate position of the sun.

    The 3rd hour is about 9 a.m., and the 6th hour is 12 noon.
    Mark recorded that Jesus was crucified at the 3rd hour (9 a.m.).

    John recorded that Jesus was crucified at "about the 6th hour" when he was sentenced to be crucified. There was no exact timing mentioned; as I said before, they were not wearing any watches!

    So John had approximated the time of crucifixion at about the sixth hour based on where he perceived the sun to be. The estimation was close. If John had said the 9th hour or later, then it would have been a gross contradiction. And sceptics would rejoice.

    #3 Christ was crucified at about 9 a.m. in the morning.

    The hearing with King Herod (he was present in Jerusalem at that time) and Pontius Pilate occurred between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. The chief priests wanted to quickly dispose of Jesus before the Passover, hence the quick illegal Jewish trial in the night and pressure on the governor to pass the death sentence.

    Jesus crucifixion and death

    Jesus carried his cross (stake) and was led to Golgotha (about 400m outside the city), where he was crucified. The synoptic gospels recorded darkness over the land from the 6th hour (12 noon) to the 9th hour (3 p.m.).

    And on the 9th hour, Jesus shouted the first verse of Psalm 22:

    "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"    Matthew 27 : 46 - quoted from Psalm 22:1-2

    Many sceptics attacked the Bible by saying that this phrase clearly showed that Jesus was not God. Let us examine him closely and analyse his actions.

    Jesus was fully man and fully God. As fully man, he was able to feel the pain of torture and physical death on the cross. The sins of the world, past, present, and future, were pinned on him on that cross on that day. Jesus bore the sins of the world; he would have felt abandoned by God, hence his lament.

    Jesus was also directing us to the passage and fulfilment of prophecies in Psalm 22. This passage captures the prophecies about his suffering on the cross. One example:

    "My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death."  Psalm 22:15

    Can you feel how Christ felt hanging on that cross?

    I urged you to read the entire chapter of Psalm 22 on your own. We will deal with all these prophecies in another post.

    But for now, note the remarkable thing that Christ said just before he gave up his spirit.

    "When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, 'It is finished,' and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit" John 19:30

    Isn't it curious for a dying man to say "it is finished" just before he dies?
    Jesus' mission on earth was to die on the cross for our sins. He knew that. He prophesied about it during his ministry and even over his last Passover meal.

    And as Jesus died, he proclaimed that he had followed his father's will and had completed his mission on earth, for " it is finished".

    Jesus came to save us from our sins as the slaughtered lamb during the Passover.

    Jesus death and burial

    Jesus died on the preparation day (14 Nisan before 6 p.m.), the day before the Passover feast and High Sabbath, the festival of unleavened bread. These two events take place close to each other, but they are actually two different events.

    Over time, Jews merged them into one important event, e.g., Passover Week, which now often refers to the festival of unleavened bread.

    "That day was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew near." Luke 23:54

    Jesus died on the 9th hour (3 p.m.) on the preparation day. There were three more hours until sundown, which marks their celebration of Passover and the first day of unleavened bread. Hence, the Jews requested that those who died on the cross be buried before this important sabbath.

    "The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away." John 19:31

    "And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath," Mark15:42

    Joseph of Arimathaea (member of the council) then hastily took Jesus body down from the cross, wrapped it with linen and spice, and placed him in a nearby tomb that he bought.

    "Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand."  John 19:40-42

    #4 Jesus died and was buried hastily in the afternoon of 14 Nisan, the preparation day, before the Passover.

    Women bought spices

    After Jesus death, the women accompanying him stood afar while they watched Joseph lay Jesus in the tomb. They did not touch the dead body for fear of being defiled and could not participate in the Passover feast.

    "The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it." Luke 23:55

    On 14 Nisan, Wednesday, just before 6 p.m., Jesus was taken down to be buried in haste because the high sabbath (Festival of Unleavened Bread) was near.

    On 15 Nisan, Wednesday, after 6 p.m., Jesus was already buried.

    The Jews ate their Passover meals, celebrating Passover and the start of the feast of unleavened bread until the end of 15 Nisan (Thursday evening at 6 p.m.). No work was to be done on this day. The women could not buy and prepare spices for Jesus' body. This was also the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (High Sabbath).

    On 16 Nisan (Thursday, 6 p.m. onwards), the women bought and prepared spices for Jesus' body during his hasty burial.

    "And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him." Mark 16:1

    This was the second day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread. And Jews could buy and sell on this day. This is the only possible day for the women to do so in order for Christ to be dead for three days and three nights before his resurrection.

    And why didn't the women go to the tomb on this day (16 Nisan) after purchasing the spices?

    Again, the women followed the Jewish customs closely and did not want to defile themselves just before the weekly sabbath.

    "Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment."  Luke 23:55

    17 Nisan (Friday, 6 p.m. onwards) was the weekly Sabbath that the women observed. No work was to be done on this day. The women bought and prepared the spices on Friday before 6 p.m. sundown.

    18 Nisan (Saturday, 6 p.m. onwards) is the first day of the new week after the weekly Sabbath. The women brought the prepared spices to Jesus' tomb.

    "In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre." Matthew 28:1

    "The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre." John 20:1

    "And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him." Mark16:1

    "Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them." Luke 24:1

    There were two sabbaths during the week of Jesus death.

    What evidence supports this? The Bible texts mentioned a 'High Sabbath' which is a different sabbath from the normal weekly Sabbath.

    If there were only one major Sabbath and it fell on 15 Nisan, how do you account for the women being able to buy spices after the Sabbath?

    Since the Jewish day starts at sundown, 16 Nisan would start after 6 p.m. Unlike modern times, shops in Jesus' time would not open after 6 p.m. Which would you prefer? Would you shop at night or during daylight hours, when everything is bright and clear?

    It is also unlikely that the women would have bought the spices before hand, as Jesus arrest and crucifixion happened quickly on that same day, 14 Nisan. The women were shocked by the news and were seen crying in Luke 23:27

    "And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him." Luke 23:27

    Do you think they would have been in the right mind to quickly buy spices for his burial on that day?

    #5 There were two different Sabbaths on the week of Jesus death: the Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread (High Sabbath commencing on Wednesday 6 pm) and the weekly Sabbath (commencing Friday 6 pm)

    Earthquake and Dark Skies

    How about supernatural events recorded in the Bible?

    The synoptic Bible records natural events occurring during the day.

    Luke 23:44-48;  Matthew 27:51-54;  Mark 15:38; Luke 23:48

    What are these supernatural signs?

    • Earthquake
    • The sky was dark from 12 noon to 3 pm
    • Temple veil torn to two
    • Graves were opened, and the dead were resurrected

    The witnesses were shocked when these signs accompanied Jesus death.
    But do we have evidence for all of them? Well, time will tell. Presently, I could only help with the earthquake and the darkening of the sky.

    Was there evidence of an earthquake during the time of Jesus death?

    In 2011, geologists analyzed the sediment layer found near the dead sea and discovered that an earthquake occurred in 31 AD +-5. This fits nicely with the earthquake reported in Matthew 27:51.

    Did the sun stop shining and the sky darken from noon to 3 p.m.?

    There were many suggestions to explain, but they were not very plausible. One of the common explanations was that there was a lunar eclipse and the sun was darkened. But eclipses do not last for 3 hours!

    One of the better explanations would be a volcanic activity nearby that would have spilled out dust into the air, covering the sky in Jerusalem. This would account for the darkness over the land for 3 hours. Or, it could have been a supernatural event in the heavens.

    Time will tell.

    Scientists are still exploring and finding out the truth. I have no doubt that, with advanced technology, new evidences will be uncovered to explain the above in His time.

    Date and Year

    According to Hebrew calendar sources, the only year that shows the Passover 14 Nisan on a  Wednesday and which has a large earthquake is 31 AD. Based on the calendar, Jesus death tool place on Wednesday, April 25, 31 AD, at 3 p.m.

    Below is the overall chronology of Jesus death.

    jesus death


    While it is good to study deeply into when Christ died and resurrected, it is more important that you understand the real message behind his life, death, and resurrection.

    Jesus came to earth to die for our sins. He knew about his mission and prophesied about his death. Jesus was also fully man and felt the pain, fear, and suffering as a man. In humility, Jesus prayed that:

    "And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." Matthew 26:39

    And in humility, he subjected his human body to the will of God. This is the example that we should all follow. Jesus willingly gave his life for you and me while we were still sinners, so that whoever believed in Jesus and repented shall obtain salvation.

    "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John3:16

    "The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

    "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9

    We are under the power of sin and ruled by the devil. All of us deserve condemnation and hell. But Jesus came to be the atonement sacrifice for you. He bought all of us with His blood when He conquered death on the cross.

    If we accept Jesus as Lord and Master and repent of our sins, we become His salve of righteousness.

    As a salve, we have put aside our sinful nature and become a new person in Christ.
    As a slave of Christ, we are no more bound to sin.

    Satan has no hold on us without God's permission.

    It is good to acquire understanding and knowledge about Christianity but without Christ love and faith in your heart, we are nothing.

    Have you received Christ as your Lord and Saviour?

    Time is running out. Look all around you, and you can see why. Satan is making his final moves to cause chaos and fulfill the end-time prophecies.

    If you do want to accept Christ, just acknowledge Jesus as your only way out of this evil world. Repent of your sins and accept Jesus into your life as your Lord and Saviour.

    Then do the following:

    • Start reading the gospel (Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John) to learn more about Christ.
    • Find a trusted Christian friend and talk to her or him about your experience
    • Find a community or a church that you are comfortable with (speak with me if you are not sure)
    • Continue to pray and read his word; in time, you will start hearing his sweet whispers and prompting for your life mission

    But be ready to face setbacks!

    The devil is like a prowling lion-he doesn't want you to know Christ. And he will cause things to get in your way of knowing Christ.

    So stay firm and persevere. Look and pray to Jesus and persevere, and the devil will FLEE!!

    It is a promise.
