Holy Saturday

Reposted from 2019, think this needs another airing today.

Today is a kairos moment, a time between times.

Jesus is dead, buried, gone. And we wait.
And, as usual, we do not see what is going on.

Death is being swallowed up.
Hades disarmed.
The gates of Hell broken down.
Prisoners released.
Satan runs trembling as yesterday’s victory becomes today’s defeat, his kingdom crumbling around him.

All these things happen on this momentous day, as Heaven storms earth and captures it in love.

All we can see is a death, a tomb, a sombre defeat.
Because our eyes have not yet been opened, we do not comprehend what God has purposed since the founding of the world.

But we will.

    Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many.
    And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
    Hebrews 9:27-28 NKJV
