Now I want to look at some parallels between the gospel accounts of Jesus' Passover and the second coming of Christ.
These elements are:
a. The Darkness b. The earthquake c. It is finished d. The Shout e. The resurrection f. The veil torn
Here are passages of scripture where these are found.
Mt 27:50 ^ Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
Lu 23:44 ^ And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Joh 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
In the bible the phrase 'Day of the Lord' has several meanings.
a. The 7th day, also known as the 3rd day or the Millennium. A thousand year period.
b. The End Times. A period of judgment and harvest leading to the Second Coming.
c. The actual Second Coming.
When it is used to speak of the actual second coming, many other equivalent sayings may be substituted. These include, the day of judgment, the day of wrath, 'in that day', the day of Christ, the day of vengeance etc.
With that in mind, let's look at these elements.
