The 3rd Day Resurrection of Jesus Christ Was Prophesied on the 3rd Day of Creation.
By Joseph Ferrari
All verses quoted are from the King James Version, also known as the Authorized Version.
"And God said, Let the Earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree, yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day." Genesis 1:11,12,13.
"And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the son of Man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a CORN (seed) of wheat fall into the ground and DIE, it abideth alone: but if it DIE, it bringeth forth much fruit." John 12:23,24.
"the Lamb, slaine from the FOUNDATION of the WORLD." (As in the creation account above ) Revelation 13:8
The word "seed" in Genesis 1:11&12 is a symbol of Jesus Christ as will be proven in verses following. There are many symbols in the Old and New Testaments in the Holy Bible for Jesus Christ. "Seed" is only one. The most known being the "Lamb of God". A few other examples will follow. The word "his" above refers to man in the case of the "herb" and to the Holy Ghost in the case of the "fruit". This will be proven below.

1. The Method of Interpretation. Also, Jesus Christ always existed & has no beginning & created all things & everyone.
4. That THE SIX DAYS OF CREATION were actual days but THE FIRST THREE DAYS WERE LONGER THAN THE NORMAL TWENTY-FOUR HOUR DAY, and that the fourth day and the days following were the usual duration of a day as in our time.
5. LEADING SCHOLARS say the Greek manuscripts of the other versions, mostly the SINAITICUS/VATICANUS, ARE NOT OLDER AND MORE RELIABLE than the Greek manuscripts the King James uses, the Textus Receptus and also known as the Erasmus, and they say that the SINAITICUS/VATICANUS MANUSCRIPTS ARE CORRUPTED.
6. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE A WORD FOR WORD TRANSLATION WITHOUT THE "THEE'S" "YEE'S" "THOU'S ETC AND THE INLFLECTIONAL ENDINGS LIKE ".....EST" ".....TH" as they are in the original Hebrew and Greek!! AND Any version that is not a word for word translation is not accurate. AND You have to translate out of the correct original manuscripts. Only the King James Version has all three of these.
8. The BIBLE ITSELF in Psalms 12:6 states that the KING JAMES version of the Holy Bible is the ONLY CORRECT VERSION. And that the other versions after it are, (as the co-founder of the New American Standard Version confessed about the New American Standard Version after it was finished)- "Satanic deception". These are the words he himself used to describe the NASB, the New American Standard Version, when that version was completed.
9. "GOD: WHO WILL RENDER TO EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: TO THEM WHO BY PATIENT CONTINUANCE IN WELL DOING SEEK FOR GLORY AND HONOUR AND IMMORTALITY, ETERNAL LIFE......to every man THAT WORKETH GOOD" Romans 2:5b-10.
10. And by showing Bible verses not preached in many of the Christian American Churches today, and that the writings and letters of Christians of the first and second and following centuries taught, that SALVATION can only be obtained through REPENTANCE first, then FAITH, and then WORKS and by REMAINING in faith and works; what the definition of repentance is; that you cannot obtain grace and forgiveness for your sins without repentance; that you can lose your salvation as taught by these verses and according to the first and second century Christian church (as well as in all centuries), and that "eternal security", or "ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED" is the FALSE DOCTRINE OF BALAAM according to and WARNED ABOUT in the Bible in the New and Old Testaments and THE WRITINGS OF JOSEPHUS, who quotes Balaam's doctrine, which will be proven to be what the proponents of "eternal security" teach.
14. CLINICAL SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE OF HEAVEN & HELL, the saved go to Heaven, the unsaved end up in Hell. See this Clinical evidence in the books "Beyond Death's Door" & "To Hell And Back", both by Maurice Rawlings M.D. (point 14 here is not a link) Note: Hebrews 9:27 "It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement" is obviously the normal general rule, it does not mean there are no exceptions obviously or then it would Directly Contradict Hebrews 11:35 & John 11:41-44 & other passages.
