The essay entitled 'How Could Jesus Have Spent Three Days And Three Nights In The Tomb?' I wrote about the sign of Jonah (Mat 12:40) may well prove to be, after some time, the nose of the camel familiar from the tale. However unusual this Tuesday crucifixion and Friday resurrection theory might seem at first sight, it is still based on irrefutable historical and biblical evidence. None of the well over 24,000 people (updated June 17, 2013) who have viewed/read the essay until now have commented on it. Actually, no feedback has been given as yet. This 'camel-like' process will, sooner or later, trigger a domino effect with unforeseeable consequences. In the light of 'theological democracy', I think it could only be fair if this 'new' theory were given the WIDEST PUBLICITY, first in the USA, and then worldwide, even if this is not in the interest of those who are being inflexible to the ways of God and those underrating Christian values 'ex officio'. Fake Christian leaders and theologians benefiting from religion, like farmers from their milking cows, are of course the most likely to take a firm stand against this doctrine and/or underrate its significance. I cannot help remarking that NO ONE IN HUMAN HISTORY HAS EVER EVEN TRIED TO DETERMINE THE EXACT DATES OF JESUS' BIRTH, BAPTISM, DEATH AND RESURRECTION. Now, this job I was not tasked with by anyone but myself (or by someone who I can only hope has been supporting me all along) has been done.
I feel there must be a breakthrough 'because the days are evil' and we do not know how much time is left for us to at least try to believe in the sign of Jonah, the only sign Jesus gave. In my understanding, the 'only sign' means that there was, is or will be no other. If a breakthrough fails to happen before Armageddon, this might well mean that there will only remain the 'strait gate' Jesus spoke of. This 'strait gate' can be used by those (now over 24,000 /updated June 17, 2013/) who have been privileged to read the above-mentioned essay. They are expected to disseminate the availability of this good news to as many people and as quickly as they can. I am strongly convinced that, thereby, they would be helping to fulfill God's will.
There are lots of theological debates on the television or radio, discussing topics that are thought significant but no debate can be seen or heard on such a 'take-it-or-leave-it' issue as the sign of Jonah. It may seem too simple or not 'sophisticated' enough.
Everyone who has taken the trouble to read through the above essay on the three days and three nights should regard themselves as having been tasked by God with proclaiming the good news that anyone who believes in the sign of Jonah, i. e. that Jesus spent exactly three days and three nights in the tomb as He had foretold in Mat 12:40, may well be separated by Jesus as His 'sheep', when He comes at the end of times as He promised, from 'the goats' and come to heavenly (144,000) or earthly (probably millions of people) salvation.
If you want yourself, your family, your friends and acquaintances to belong to that minority of mankind that may, by Jesus' and thus God's grace, be given the chance of everlasting life in heaven or on earth, allow this 'camel' to come into your tent (do not fear being ousted!), strive to believe and make your beloved ones believe, and from the very bottom of your heart, in the sign of Jonah, the only sign Jesus, our Savior, gave 'pleasing God, rather than men'.
God bless you all!
