Jesus and The Sixth Day

Jesus and The Sixth Day…

Yom Ha Shishi means “the sixth day.” It begins Thursday night and ends Friday at sundown. It’s the day of our redemption – it’s exact. The Passion began as Yom Ha Shishi began – Thursday night.

It started with Passover, the last supper, at sundown. Jesus was betrayed, arrested, tried, and crucified at the beginning of Yom Ha Shishi. It ended, as Yom Ha Shishi was ending. At sundown, He was taken down from the cross, laid in the tomb, the stone rolled in place.

In Genesis, the Lord finished His works – He rested. That’s why as Yom Ha Shishi was drawing to a close, He said “It is finished.” Your redemption was finished on Yom Ha Shishi.

You don’t have to struggle, work, or accomplish it. Your walk, future victory, forgiveness, all that you will be – finished. Stop struggling and start receiving it.

Jesus didn’t redeem you on the first, second, or third day. Then there would be something missing; work yet to be done. He redeemed you on Yom Ha Shishi. He said, “It is finished.” Then He rested. You do the same.

From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. Matthew 27:47-50

Seek today to live in Yom Shishi, the end of the Sixth Day, as Jesus did. Stop trying to do it on your own. Let go and start resting in God’s finished work. And do all things in that.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
