THE SIX MIRACLES OF CALVARY


THE MIRACULOUS DARKNESS - Luke 23:44,45
It was the 6th hour. That was noon. There was darkness over all the land and it continued from 12:00 to 3:00 o'clock. This was not an eclipse, which lasts for only a few minutes. It was at full moon, when eclipse is impossible. At Jesus birth the night became light. At His death the light became night.

THE RENDING OF THE VEIL - MATT. 27:51
There were three divisions in the Temple...The Outer Court. The Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. This Veil separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place ...where only the High Priest entered once a year. No one else ever stepped past this Veil.When Jesus cried out on the cross..."It Is Finished", this veil was torn in two from top to bottom, thus opening the way for anyone to enter into the presence of God, individually, apart from the High Priest.

THE MIRACULOUS EARTHQUAKE - Matt. 27:51
The shaking of the earth was at the instant of Christ's death, and followed His shout of victory. The earth quaked to the extent that rocks were split. yet the cross was not moved. Supernatural? Yes! God interfered with nature.

THE MIRACLE OF OPENED GRAVES - Matt.27:52,53
The graves,of the saints,were opened at the instant of Jesus death. Graves were rocky sepulchers, excavations in the rocks made secure by doors of stone. But none came out of the graves at this time. The Earthquake was evidence of Force. The opening of the graves was evidence of Design.

THE UNDISTURBED GRAVE CLOTHES OFJESUS Matt.27:52
When Peter and John entered the sepulcher, they saw the "linen clothes lying"...precisely as the body had lain there. No human hands could have abstracted the body from its clothes without leaving behind marks of disturbance. One thing they knew, Jesus was not there. He had risen. Hallelujah !

REVIVALS OF LIFE IN THE GRAVEYARD MATT. 27:52,53
Note: The dead bodies of saints, arose and came out of the graves, not after the earthquake, but after Christ himself had risen. This is one of the grandest of miracles. Supernatural in the sense of being wholly miraculous.
