Three Words & Three Days

–John 18:4 “Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon Him, went forth,  and said unto them: “Whom seek ye?” 

–Genesis 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, “Where art thou?”

Three words Lord Jesus Christ spoke to the officers of the high priest and the pharisees “Whom seek ye?” Three words God spoke to Adam“Where art thou?” The three words spoken in the Garden of Olives are the three following up words spoken in the Garden of Eden. After three days Lord Jesus Christ is risen indeed.

“Where Art Thou?”

As soon as Adam and Eve had eaten the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil absolutely forbidden by God their eyes were opened. They felt guilt and fear and they made themselves aprons of fig leaves for they were ashamed. When the LORD called out to Adam “Where art thou?” Adam tried to hide for His Creator. Sin and death came into this world by the first Adam. God’s own, the man turned against Him by disobeying Him, and therefore man was now under the control of satan.

“Whom Seek ye?”

A second Adam came, God’s Son, the Christ, Who would fulfill and finish God’s Law to bruise satan’s head. After Lord Jesus had ended the Prayer to the Father, John 17.

He and His disciples went to Kidron Valley and in the Garden Lord Jesus saw the officers of the high priests and the Pharisees with torches and weapons. Although Jesus knew what was going to happen to Him yet He stepped forward and asked: “Whom seek ye?” They said they were looking for Jesus of Nazareth, “I am He, let these go their way.”  With these words Jesus Christ fulfilled the Words, He has spoken in the Prayer to the Father: “those that Thou gavest Me I have kept and none of them is lost”. John 17:12

Adam in the wonderful Garden of Eden was not able to resist the devil and believed satan’s  lies. Lord Jesus without food in the wilderness forty days and forty nights did resist the devil, the father of lies and He said: in Matthew 4:10 “Get thee hence satan”   The devil tried to tempt  Christ three times.  The Saviour did not fall.

Eat from the Tree of Life

The Second Adam, Christ completely fulfilled and finished  with His precious Blood the Law of the Father on the cursed tree of Golgotha, destroying satan’s work; like satan once destroyed God’s Work in the Garden of Eden. God obtained His own that once belonged to Him. Although satan’s work is totally destroyed  it seems that mankind does not know what it means, this wonderful Blessedness and Salvation by grace. Science, politicians, non-governmental organizations, and multi-nationals are still enjoying the fruit of the tree of good and evil. That means manipulating God’s Truth and leaving out the very essentials. Still holding on to the evolution theory bringing forth old eastern religions and New Age based upon works, tradition, rituals, and witchcraft. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil cannot make fruit; it is a tree of death and destruction. The Tree of Life is the Fruit. Christ the Saviour is meant with the Tree of Life; only He can restore life because He IS Life.

God’s first act of grace: —Genesis 3:17 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

“Where art thou?” a question that makes us shiver. It means separated from the LORD and condemnation of death.

“Whom seek ye?” a question for us to rejoice, Life in the Presence of the Saviour; Life Everlasting.

  1. This post is yet another example of how God uses you for His kingdom.
    He gives you eyes for minute details like this that I miss.

    I too have noticed that “3 days” is significant in the bible, but you have greater discernment about this.

    Wasn’t there “3 days” before Moses crossed the red sea? (Or maybe it was 3 days before Joshua and company entered Canaan land)?

    Thank you for sharing this thoughtful post miss Jackie.

    1. Is this what you were looking for?

      Moses lead the Hebrew people out of Egyptian bondage:
      –Exodus 15:22
      So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

      Joshua guided the Hebrew people in the Promised Land Canaan
      –Joshua 1:11
      Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to
      possess it.

      What was meant for Israel also applies for believers out the gentiles.

      Some years ago someone pointed put to me that numbers in the Bible are very important. Ever since I look for numbers, I count a summation, I look what the number is of a chapter and the number of a Bible verse.

      Numbers represent good but they also can represent bad. My next post on my Homepage will be what numbers represent in the Bible.

      1. Yes, that Joshua reference is what I was thinking about.

        Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

        And I can’t wait to read what you post next about numbers in the bible.

      2. Oh yeah, I just remembered that my bible shows at the beginning of every chapter, which numeric chapter it is in the bible, and I’ve wondered if there’s any significance to that.
        So if you are ever curious about which chapter is a certain number, just ask. 🙂

      1. AMEN!!! To every thing that you stated miss Jackie.

        Matthew 5:17

        King James Version

         “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”

        Jesus did exactly that.
