JOY --- Jesus On the JourneY

The Day After

This phrase of the verse grabbed me this week
Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2 NKJV   

Roy Lessin calls Crucifixion Day -- Jesus' best day

He was looking forward to Friday -- because of what He would be able to do for me!!!

But what was going on that Saturday FOLLOWING Christ's crucifixion?
Where was His Spirit?
He said to the thief that on that very day he'd be with Him in Paradise. . . Who did He connect with there? --
Did He have a big reunion Abraham, Moses, Elijah and all those people who went before?  Did they finally begin to see the big picture about what it was really all about?

  Lazarus had just been to Paradise before that Saturday in the tomb -- Did the folks he met there ask Jesus about the guy who didn't stay very long? 

I am thinking that Sabbath was the blackest, bleakest, saddest day of the disciples lives -- the Bible said they went back to fishing -- they must have been overwhelmed with disappointment

YET -- I believe there was so much going on in the realm of Heaven --and in Paradise where Jesus was.

THERE still is--- as Jesus sits there, just to the right of GOD the Father speaking to Him  for us -- about us.
