JESUS’ LAST HOURS ON EARTH Part II

THE LAST HOURS of CHRIST on EARTH Part II

The CoG Communities have been trumpeting that after resurrection, Christ went to heaven to present Himself to His Father to be accepted as a sacrifice. They base their “evidence” on the waving of the mistranslation of “omar” as “wave sheaf” in Leviticus 23:11 “And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord to be accepted for you; on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.” 

But where are the evidence? The timeline below shows that Jesus was hour-by-hour on the earth after being resurrected.

They led Him to be crucified — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (7:00 AM)
John 19:16 Then he delivered Him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led Him away.
17 And He, bearing His cross, went forth into a place called the Place of a Skull (which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha)

The Third hour — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (9:00 AM) — 3rd hour
John 19:18 where they crucified Him and two others with Him, one on either side and Jesus in the midst. — here, Jesus was nailed to the cross, with two others besides Him
19 And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was: Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.
20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city, and it was written in Hebrew and Greek and Latin.
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, “Write not ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’”
22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part, and also His coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which saith, “They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture did they cast lots.” These things therefore the soldiers did.

Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour (9 AM) when they crucified Him.

29 And those who passed by railed at Him, wagging their heads and saying, “Ah, thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days,
30 save thyself and come down from the cross!”
31 Likewise also the chief priests, mocking, said among themselves with the scribes, “He saved others; himself he cannot save!
32 Let Christ, the King of Israel, descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” And those who were crucified with Him reviled Him.
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother and the disciple standing by whom He loved, He said unto His mother, “Woman, behold thy son!”
27 Then said He to the disciple, “Behold thy mother!” And from that hour, that disciple took her unto his own home.

Mark 15:33 And when the sixth hour (12 NOON) had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour (3 PM).
Luke 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour (12 NOON), and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour (3 PM). 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

28 After this Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst.”
29 Now there was set there a vessel full of vinegar; and they filled a sponge with vinegar and put it upon a hyssop, and put it to His mouth.

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour (3 PM) Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is, being interpreted, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?”
35 And some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said, “Behold, he calleth Elijah.”
36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed and gave it to Him to drink, saying, “Let him alone. Let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.”
37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, “It is finished.” And He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.

Earthquakes and graves opened — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (3.00 PM) — 9th hour
Matthew 27:51 And behold, the veil of the temple was rented in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth quaked and the rocks rent.
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who slept arose,
53 and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the Holy City and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and those who were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly, this was the Son of God!”

Preparation for the Passover — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (4:00 PM) — 10th hour
John 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, and so that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day (for that Sabbath day was a high day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him.
33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was dead already, they broke not His legs,
34 but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith there came out blood and water.
35 And he that saw it bore record, and his record is true, and he knoweth that he saith truly, that ye might believe.
36 For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled: “A bone of Him shall not be broken.”
37 And again another Scripture saith, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”

The women watched — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (4:30 PM)
Mark 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joses, and Salome
41 (who also, when He was in Galilee, had followed Him and ministered unto Him), and many other women who came up with Him unto Jerusalem.

Joseph of Arimathea — 14th Nisan, Wednesday (5:00 PM) — 11th hour
Mark 15:42 And now when the evening had come, because it was the Preparation (that is, the day before the Sabbath), — that Sabbath was a High Day, the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
43 Joseph of Arimathea, an honorable council member who also was waiting for the Kingdom of God, came and went in boldly unto Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
44 And Pilate wondered if He were already dead; and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether He had been any while dead.
45 And when he learned it from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
46 And Joseph bought fine linen, and took Him down and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a sepulcher which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulcher.
47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where He was laid.

First Day of Unleavened Bread — 15th Nisan, Thursday (9:00 AM) — 3rd hour
Matthew 27:62 Now the next day, that following the Day of the Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63 saying, “Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, ‘After three days I will rise again.’
64 Command therefore that the sepulcher be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night and steal him away, and say unto the people, ‘He is risen from the dead,’ so that the last error shall be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said unto them, “Ye have a watch. Go your way, make it as secure as ye can.”
66 So they went and made the sepulcher secure, sealing the stone and setting up a watch.

Thursday Evening — Beginning of 16th Nisan (7:00 PM) — 1st watch
Mark 16:1 And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought sweet spices, so that they might come and anoint Him.

Friday Afternoon — Afternoon of 16th (1-5 PM) to Beginning of 17th (6 PM)
Luke 23:56 And they returned and prepared spices and ointments, and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment. — resting on the weekly Sabbath

Saturday Evenings — End of 17th (5-6 PM) to the Dawn of 18th (6-7 PM)
Matthew 28:1 At the end of the Sabbath (G4521, sab’-bat-on), as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week (G4521, sab’-bat-on), came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. — Dawn is the beginning (of the 24-hr day), so that the three days and nights remain intact.

The Proper translation should be: At the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the beginning of [a new] week (G4521, sab’-bat-on), came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.

2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
4 And for fear of him the guards shook and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, “Fear ye not, for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here, for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and behold, He goeth before you into Galilee. There shall ye see Him. Lo, I have told you.”

Sunday Morning — Dawn of 18th of Nisan (4-5 AM)
Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning on the first day of the week (beginning of a new week G4521, sab’-bat-on), they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun.
3 And they said among themselves, “Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulcher?”
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away, for it was very large.
5 And entering into the sepulcher, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were frightened. — no mentioning that his countenance was like lightning. Also, Luke account (Luke 24:4) says they saw two men stood by them, not one sitting; John account of two angels both sitting, one at each end of Christ tomb:

Luke 24:4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments.
5 And as they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, “Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He spoke unto you when He was yet in Galilee,
7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’”
8 And they remembered His words,

6 And he said unto them, “Be not afraid. Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him.
7 But go your way. Tell His disciples and Peter that He goeth before you into Galilee. There shall ye see Him, as He said unto you.”

Luke 24:9 and returned from the sepulcher and told all these things unto the eleven and to all the rest.
10 It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and other women who were with them, who told these things unto the apostles.
11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

Sunday Morning — Morning of 18th Nisan (7-8 AM)
John 20:2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple (Most guessed him as John), whom Jesus loved, and said unto them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him!”
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher.
4 And they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came first to the sepulcher.
5 And stooping down and looking in, he saw the linen cloth lying, yet he went not in.
6 Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher and saw the linen cloths as they lay
7 and the napkin that had been about His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then the other disciple, who came first to the sepulcher, went in also; and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. — none of the angels appeared to the men.
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home (went back to where they were staying in Jerusalem).

Sunday Morning — Morning of 18th Nisan (9-10 AM)
John 20:11 But Mary stood outside at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher,
12 and saw two angels in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou?” She said unto them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.”
14 And when she had thus said, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, “Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said unto her, “Mary!” She turned herself and said unto Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, “Master”).
17 Jesus said unto her, “Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say unto them, ‘I ascend unto My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” — Do not cling to Me

MEV Jesus said to her, “Stop holding on to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go to My brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.’ ”
to them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”
NASB Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”
CJB “Stop holding onto me,” Yeshua said to her, “because I haven’t yet gone back to the Father. But go to my brothers, and tell them that I am going back to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”

18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her.

Sunday Morning — Morning of 18th Nisan (10-11 AM)
Matthew 28:8 And they departed quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. — “Great joy” because they had seen the resurrected Jesus.
9 And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “All hail.” And they came, and held Him by the feet, and worshiped Him. — see, they held Him by the feet a few moments later!
10 Then said Jesus unto them, “Be not afraid. Go tell My brethren to go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me.” — Note the different terms: Disciples don’t necessarily include brethren.

Sunday Noon — Noon of 18th Nisan (12:00 Noon)
Matthew 28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the guards came into the city and reported unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
12 And when they were assembled with the elders and had taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money unto the soldiers,
13 saying, “Say ye, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept.’
14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him and secure you.”
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught; and this account is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Sunday Afternoon — Afternoon of 18th Nisan (2:00 – 5:30 PM)
Luke 24:13 And behold, two of them were going that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about seven miles. — typically, adults walk at a speed of 3 to 4 miles per hour, and therefore seven miles would be about two hours, but they were talking so a bit slower.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 And it came to pass that while they communed and reasoned together, Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
16 But their eyes were held, that they should not know Him.
17 And He said unto them, “What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another as ye walk and are sad?”
18 And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto Him, “Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which have come to pass there in these days?”
19 And He said unto them, “What things?” And they said unto Him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;
20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death and have crucified Him.
21 But we trusted that it had been He who should have redeemed Israel. And besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done.
22 Yea, and certain women also of our company, who were early at the sepulcher, made us astonished.
23 And when they found not His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive.
24 And certain of those who were with us went to the sepulcher and found it even so as the women had said, but Him they saw not.”
25 Then He said unto them, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”
27 And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
28 And they drew nigh unto the village whither they were going, and He made as though He would have gone further.
29 But they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening and the day is far spent.” And He went in to tarry with them. — this is likely to be getting dark 5:30 PM
30 And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread and blessed it, and broke and gave it to them.
31 And their eyes were opened and they knew Him. And He vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said to one another, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us on the way and while He opened to us the Scriptures?”

Sunday Evening — Evening of 19th Nisan (6:00 – 7:30 PM)
Luke 24:33 And they rose up that same hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them,
34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed and hath appeared to Simon!” — and John perhaps
35 And they told what things were done on the way, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.

Sunday Evening — Evening of 19th Nisan (10:00 – 11:00 PM)
Luke 24:36 And as they thus spoke, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them and said unto them, “Peace be unto you.”
37 But they were terrified and afraid, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And He said unto them, “Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me to have.”
40 And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and His feet.
John 20:20 And when He had so said, He showed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, “Peace be unto you. As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you.”
22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.

41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, “Have ye here any meat?”
42 And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb.
43 And He took it and ate before them. — If Christ had gone to heaven and been accepted by the Father, they didn’t even give Him a meal, poor thing! Moses’ face turned white radiating with the glory of God, making the Israelites afraid to come near him, but nothing about Jesus’ face radiating white after He had returned if He had appeared before the glory of His Father. Perhaps His sacrifice wasn’t accepted, lol!
44 And He said unto them, “These are the words which I spoke unto you while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms concerning Me.”
45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures,
46 and said unto them, “Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things. — Jesus told them many things, but He didn’t tell them that He had gone to heaven and had been accepted by the Father. Perhaps He forgot!

Conclusion: The hour-by-hour timeline above doesn’t support that the resurrected Christ had gone up to heaven and be accepted by the Father. Second, the Lamb in Leviticus 23:12 wasn’t waved! Weird! Why wasn’t this Lamb waved if it were to represent Christ? Third, if waving means going up to heaven and back, then why the 3000 new converts on Pentecost (Acts 2) didn’t similarly go up to heaven as they were also waved (Lev 23:20), each should be giving warning the others “don’t touch me” along the way up and back from heaven on that day of Pentecost, wouldn’t they?

This timeline above is conclusive. The end-time CoG Communities have had their share of nonsensical interpretations which have caused great delusions among themselves. Most of these Blind Guides didn’t even notice the Lamb in Leviticus 23:12! It is nice to believe that Christ was waved and accepted by the Father before the Throne in heaven, but where are the evidence? Not a single one is given. 

Instead the CoG Communities have been infiltrated by the long arms of the sun-worshipping Samaritans to pin down Shavuot on Sundays as they have succeeded in pinning the weekly Sabbath on Sundays with the same success. Now this Samaritan-inspired “White Sunday Pentecost” or “Whitsunday Pentecost” doctrine is a well-entrenched ideology within the CoG Communities!
