The Ball Bounced. The Baby Cried.

The Sixth Day Theology is the Day of Zebulun, the Theology of the Tomb, the Theology of the Hidden and the Day of the Spirit. Zebulun is the Leah’s sixth son. Zebulun means “glorious dwelling place”. The sixth day is the Day of the Spirit. When Jesus is placed in the tomb, “the glorious dwelling place”, the seventh day becomes the sixth day. When the tomb closes, all that will happen will be hidden in death. In every graveyard, death sleeps in the garden. To live, one has to die.

In Colossians 3:3 (New Living Translation), it is written “For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”

In Christ’s situation as he lay dead in the tomb, the scripture could read “For Christ died to this life, and his real life is hidden with the Father in God.”

There is a silence in darkness that bleeds death; "from silence was born the sound of death" (deathbringer). The light and life of the Father through the blood of the Son makes all darkness and death disappear by the Spirit. In silence in the Spirit, be still and hear voice of the Spirit.

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)10

Death does not speak or make sound. Death will drive your inner man to sin. The sound of death is silence, emptiness, eternal oblivion, nothingness and is wages of sin. Death and sin is eternal darkness.

We cry out! “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:55-57. King James Version)

Jesus is in the tomb. He is dead. He can be nothing more than dead. He has not risen. “The Hired Man” is definitely dead because Christ came in the flesh. He is dead in the (“glorious dwelling place). For Christ to rise, Christ has to die. The temple has to fall before the temple can set the corner stone. The corner stone is the Spirit living in the follower of Christ who become a living temple.

The Pentecost Week, God’s sixth week, is about the Spirit living taking up permanent resident in the follower of Christ. The Spirit lives in the “glorious dwelling place” in the follower of Christ. The Pentecost week begins with three men in the Spirit on Tabor. Fifty days later, the Spirit flees the temple when the curtain tears. Actually, the Spirit leaves Jesus, but no one can see the Spirit leave. The tear in the curtain was very visible event for the Pentecost Week. Another fifty days later, the Spirit lands on one hundred twenty plus people.

The revelation is “God is in us”. The Lord’s Speculum is “Jesus is in us”. The worker who works the Pentecost Week is the Spirit.

If you are not sure if Jesus lives in you, try taking the “2 Corinthians 13:5 Test”.

”Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” (New International Version)

Israel’s sixth week is “Zebulun and the Holocaust”. This is a curse week. The curse is “Death in the glorious dwelling place”. The glorious dwelling place was the extermination camps (Vernichtungslager), death camps (Todeslager), concentration camps or killing centers (Tötungszentren). Different names for all the similar stations where death lived, bleed and thrived. Now, the first concentration camp was set up in Dachau in 1933. The camp or camps were never really discovered until the US soldiers freed the prisoners of Dachau in 1945, twelve years later.

The twelve years is twelve hours. An hour is a year long. The Zebulun Week begins with Theodor Herzl and Zionism in 1897. The middle of the week or the fourth day is the Holocaust from 1933 to 1945. The week sputters out to 1981 with two UN Resolutions involving “Zionism”. If a curse was ever a curse, the Holocaust was a curse with no solution except Isaiah 53, the suffering servant who we have read ends up in a tomb. The sacrifice was a “hidden visual” sacrifice and the recorded horrors of the Holocaust shows what death looks like in a tomb, the glorious dwelling place. The curse is broken by Christ with Lord’s Antiphon: Jesus is the life in the glorious dwelling place.

Sin is the death. Sin gets traction through the law. The law shows us that we will continue to fall short of God. Who can break this cycle of sin and death? Jesus can break this cycle of darkness. To follow Christ means to die to Christ and live in the Spirit. In Christ, there is life and light.

The ball bounced. The baby cried. O death, where is thy sting?
