and be ready by the third day, because on that day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.
This reference to the third day is full resonance. There are repeated references to the third day in the Bible. As God came down on Mount Sinai to give the law to His people, so it was that on the third day (after three days and nights in the grave) Jesus rose again to usher in the age of the Spirit, in which the law would be written on people’s hearts.
Thank God for that great third day and all it’s significance.
‘We are an Easter people and ‘Hallelujah’ is our song.’
