IT’S FRIDAY………BUT SUNDAY’S A COMIN’ by Pastor J.L. Jefferson

I Realize that this would be more fitting for Resurrection Sunday, but then I thought NO…..we need to hear this EVERY DAY!!

Jesus crucifixion is one of betrayal. Denial. Cowardice. Envy. Hate. Brutality. Suffering. Despair. Defeat. Death. Yet, Christians celebrate the cross because the story does not end on that fateful Friday. It does not end at the cross. The irony of the cross was the very instrument Jesus’ enemies used to defeat Him became His greatest victory. Little did they know when Friday ended what would happen on Sunday to change the course of the world’s history.

And so in the spirit of this theme, I want to share a part of that famous sermon by Lockridge. As you read this, just remember that regardless of what today brings. Regardless of today’s problems. Challenges. Or defeats. Just remember that Sunday’s coming! And that you will enjoy the privilege of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Communing with Him and fellow saints. And beginning a new week with renewed vision, vigor and vitality. I know it’s Friday. But thanks be to God that Sunday’s coming!

It’s Friday. Jesus is praying. Peter’s a sleeping. Judas is betraying. But Sunday’s comin’. It’s Friday. Pilate’s struggling. The council is conspiring. The crowd is vilifying. They don’t even know that Sunday’s comin’. It’s Friday. The disciples are running Like sheep without a shepherd. Mary’s crying. Peter is denying. But they don’t know that Sunday’s a comin’. It’s Friday. The Romans beat my Jesus. They robe him in scarlet. They crown him with thorns. But they don’t know that Sunday’s comin’. It’s Friday. See Jesus walking to Calvary. His blood dripping. His body stumbling. And his spirit’s burdened. But you see, it’s only Friday. Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. The world’s winning. People are sinning. And evil’s grinning. It’s Friday. The soldiers nail my Savior’s hands to the cross. They nail my Savior’s feet to the cross. And then they raise him up Next to criminals. It’s Friday. But let me tell you something, Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. The disciples are questioning. What has happened to their King. And the Pharisees are celebrating that their scheming has been achieved. But they don’t know It’s only Friday. Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. He’s hanging on the cross. Feeling forsaken by his Father. Left alone and dying. Can nobody save him? Ooooh It’s Friday. But Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. The earth trembles. The sky grows dark. My King yields his spirit.

It’s Friday. Hope is lost. Death has won. Sin has conquered and Satan’s just a laughin’. It’s Friday. Jesus is buried. A soldier stands guard. And a rock is rolled into place. But it’s Friday. It is only Friday. Sunday is a comin’! –Ken Weliever, The Preacherman –The voice for Sunday’s Comin’ is Pastor John L. Jefferson. –The video was purchased from http://www.ignitermedia.com. Are you ready? Are you ready? The Good News is, it’s Friday, but… SUNDAY’S COMING! No matter what you are facing… Sunday’s a Coming! I’m glad that I am connected to the Lord! It is Good Friday and Easter Sunday is coming!

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

MARANATHA!!

    Great sermon…and I too am looking forward to seeing Him in the clouds – but from a careful examination of scripture, you will see that He wasn’t crucified on a Friday – but rather on a Wednesday.

        No argument…just scripture. Read these two passages and you’ll see a serious problem…

        Luke 23: 55-56 “And the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed the tomb and how His body was laid. 56 Then they returned and prepared spices and fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.”
        ————————–
        It says they observed his tomb and His body and then they prepared spices and they rested on the Sabbath. (the spices were in their possession BEFORE the Sabbath)

        Now…read Mark 16: “1 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.”
        ————————–
        Mark says “AFTER” the Sabbath, they bought spices. (the spices were NOT in their possession BEFORE the Sabbath).
        ————————–
        This is an apparent contradiction (we both know there are no contradictions in the God’s Word) and this poses a serious problem for the Friday crucifixion.

        Let me know if you want me to explain further…or if you want to “not argue about this”. Hint: The explanation is in the Old Testament and I’d take a look at these verses closer in the Interlinear translation. You’ll see what happened.

        This is not a salvation issue but as a teacher – I’d think you’d want to see this. Blessings to you…and PS: I really enjoy your site.
