So it's been forever since I've posted a blog... and I really do apologize about that! My plan is to get better at doing that. I've had so much going on in my heart and soul over the past year, and I haven't been communicating very well with all of you, and that's gotta change. So as you may have seen on my Instagram & Facebook, I've been posting a lot of things with the hashtag #SetItOff. "Set It Off" the title of my latest single, has the idea behind it that I want to really burn down a lot of the traditional practices that we practice in out typical churches, and really dive into the bible to see what it says.
So without making this a super long blog post about why I need to blog more, lets look at the quiz:
I've always wondered how we got 3 days and 3 nights from the Easter story that I've heard growing up in church. The math just never added up. At very best when you stretch it to count the entire day on Friday, and the entire day on Sunday, you still fall short of 3 days and three nights.
I say that doing that is really "stretching it" because John 11:9 says "Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world's light..." (NIV)
We also know that Christ didn't die till the evening hours on the day that he did die. Matthew 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, Lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" (NKJV) So, we can't count THAT day.
To answer the quiz, we have to work backwards. We know that He Rose on the first day of the week. (Mark 16:9). And we also have to remember that a Hebrew day goes from SUNSET TO SUNSET. Making the first day of the week actually start on what we would call Saturday night.
That makes total sense because Mary Magdalene began her way out to the tomb on the first day of the week while it was still dark, and HE HAD ALREADY RISEN. (John 20:1) So that would mean that he most likely rose on what we call Saturday night sometime between sunset and before the the sun rose on what we call Sunday.
So from there, lets count backwards:
Saturday DAY (1) | Friday NIGHT (1) Friday DAY (2) | Thursday NIGHT (2) Thursday DAY (3) | Wednesday NIGHT (3)
OK... That would mean He WAS CRUCIFIED AT THE 9TH HOUR ON WEDNESDAY and put in the grave by sundown that evening.
But some would say "But hey, they wanted Him off the cross because the next day was a Sabbath" (John 19:31) "That would HAVE to make it a Friday evening wouldn't it?"
But if we understand Gods holy days that He gave in the OT, we'd know that THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD IS CONSIDERED A HIGH SABBATH (Leviticus 23:7).
That totally makes sense because Mark says that Mary bought spices AFTER the Sabbath and yet still waited for the first day of the week to anoint Christ's body. (Mark 16:1-2)
Been waiting for the latest George Moss single? The wait is almost over!! Next Tuesday you will get a chance to hear new music, but even more then that, you will get to hear the message George wants to express. Yes, the "music" is still George Moss, but the message has matured and grown. Be ready as George begins to question what we've been taught for years in our "churches". More the anything, George asks us to dive into the scriptures and examine what the Bible teaches. Urging us to go deeper and unpack the truth. Be ready and willing to discuss questions about the Word. Before it was "time", now it's time to "Set it off"! #GetYokedUp #Setitoff
On Wednesday, January 21st, 2015 my family and I welcomed Judah David George Moss to the world. I knew that time time was coming soon for him to be born, but his due dates wasn't until Feb. 5th. For a few weeks prior, my wife was having some braxton hicks contractions (if you don't know what that is, don't worry about it, I didn't either. Just google it). As she was having them, I was telling her that if only he cold wait until after Wednesday, everything would be fine. I had a lot of really "important" things to do that day. I had an important meeting scheduled for that morning, an appointment for a haircut, a promo video shoot, and I was also had a speaking engagement that night. But as much as I tried to tell my wife to "hold it", God was determined to show me what is truly important.
Thursday June 11th, the @oxenapparel kickball classic is going down w/ Me & @beaconmusic. I'm way too fast for him
Many people use the word "Love", but how often to we look to scripture to define what that word really means. Want to know that you truly love God and people? See 1 John 5:2-3 #getyokedup #bible #Scripture #oxenapparel
