"And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them,
The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again."
 
"Behold, we go up to Jerusalem;
and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests
and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock,
and to scourge, and to crucify him:
and the third day he shall rise again."
 
"For he taught his disciples, and said unto them,
The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men,
and they shall kill him;
and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day."
 
"Behold, we go up to Jerusalem;
and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests,
and unto the scribes;
and they shall condemn him to death,
and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him,
and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him:
and the third day he shall rise again."
 
"The Son of man must suffer many things,
and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes,
and be slain,
and be raised the third day."
 
"And he said unto them,
Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils,
and I do cures today and tomorrow,
and the third day I shall be perfected."
 
"For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles,
and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
And they shall scourge him,
and put him to death:
and the third day he shall rise again."
 
And said unto them,
"Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer,
and to rise from the dead the third day."

The Third Day!
 
There are eight references to the "third day" mentioned in the New Testament by Jesus Himself.
He makes it quite clear to us about His resurrection.
 
The chief priests and the Pharisees were determined that
Jesus was going to stay in His grave.
They used every resource
and power available to see to that.
They secured the tomb by placing a seal
on the great stone that had been rolled in front of it
to close the entrance.
They posted guards at the entrance of His tomb.
 
In spite of all their human efforts,
they were unable to prevent Jesus from accomplishing
what had already been determined and promised:
"After three days, I will rise again."
 
These carnal-minded, religious leaders did not know
that nothing in the physical realm
has the ability to hinder the divine will from accomplishing
its purpose.
They could not stop a real resurrection!
 
Paul states that all who are baptized into Christ
are baptized into his death,
and in the same manner that Christ was resurrected,
they are to be resurrected to a new life in Christ.
(Romans 6:3-7)
 
God's incomparably great power is available
for those who believe.
"And what is the exceeding greatness of his power
to us-ward who believe,
according to the working of his mighty power,
Which he wrought in Christ,
when he raised him from the dead,
and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places."
Ephesians 1:19,20
 
If you deliberately decide in your heart that you are going
to bury your old self
and be resurrected to a new life in Christ,
you have God's promise that you cannot be stopped.
Excuses are endless,
but if you want to be resurrected to a new life you will be.

No one can stop a real resurrection!
