This day is the first day of the week. This day is the third day - The Morrow of the Sabbath - the eighth day. This day is the fiftieth day - The day of Pentecost - The Morrow of the Seventh Sabbath. II) THE FIRST AND THIRD DAY OF CREATION In "the first day" of Creation, the light appeared vanishing the intense blackness of dark, and in "the third day" the vegetative life began to vanquish the "deadness" of the barren, desolate dry land. In the same manner in the New Creation: Light appeared in "the first day of the week," when Christ rose from the dead on "the third day," "the Morrow after the Sabbath," the "day of waving the sheaf of the firstfruits of harvest," firstborn among the dead - firstfruits of them that slept. III) AND HERE IS GREATER THAN THE TEMPLE We entered the temple on the Sabbath, and we saw redoubling of activity, and increasing bustle, over every movement and activity in the regular weekly days, therefore where is the Sabbath? It vanished and emptied its place to the temple, in which the priests defile the Sabbath to accomplish the worship and temple service, "and here is greater than the Temple." IV) THE DAY IN WHICH COME OUT THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR And what a glorious "Lord's day," in which dawn He brought to an end the darkness of the seventh day, in His grave. The day that in which come out the bright and morning star (Rev 22:16), glaring the horizon, brightening the valleys and mountains, and enlightening the hearts and minds. It is "the third day" in which it is brought in the sheaf, the beginning of harvest (Lev 23:10), a holy firstfruits. And what a joy is in the harvest, where the sower and reaper joy together."
