I came across this photo a few months ago while doing some t-shirt design and it really stuck out to me. My first thought of course, was of Jesus raising from the dead in three days. However, in the past week I've come across many other "three day events" in the Bible and even in my own personal life.
In the end of June I attended a service at Reformation Center in Mt Laurel, New Jersey. That Sunday the Apostle/Prophet of the church began to prophesy to me in the middle of the service. One of the things he said was "God is turning you, He's bringing you into three days and in those three days He is resurrecting your future that the enemy thought he would rob from you. " In that moment I was not sure what to expect but in the days that followed God showed up in a mighty way and led me where He needed me to go.
Here are a few significant three day events in the Bible:
- Christ was crucified and rose again on the 3rd day
- The Israelites had only been on their journey 3 days before they began to complain
- The Lord descended upon Mt Saini as fire on the 3rd day
- Jonah took a 3 day journey across the city of Nineveh
- Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days
- Joseph held his brothers in prison in Egypt and released them on the 3rd day
- Esther fasted for 3 days before going to the king to save her people
- Abraham was to sacrifice his son after a 3 day journey to Mt Moriah
- Moses asked Pharaoh to allow the Israelites to go on a 3 day journey into the wilderness
- When Jesus was 12 years old he was "lost" for 3 days
- Saul was blinded for 3 days
- The Israelites arrived at the Jordan River and in 3 days they entered into the Promised Land
This last one really caught my attention. I have felt like I've been on a journey to the Promised Land. The Lord instructed me to leave behind everything in Pennsylvania and go to Destin, Florida, which I see as my "Promised Land". Well here I am!
In April God poured a business venture into me which quickly became an official business "Grace On Display". I haven't really been doing anything with it but always figured once I got settled in my new land I would do more with it.
On November 1st I decided to order a few t-shirts so I could make myself some shirts that I really liked. While on the site, I felt led to order multiple shirts in both black and white of each size Large through 3X. I've heard it said that sometimes God is waiting for us to take that step out in faith. Well let me tell you... that prophetic step opened up the flood gates of Heaven and in just three days the Lord resurrected our business. (I say "our" because it belongs to Him. He handles the heavenly side and I handle the Earthly side.)
All of a sudden things were happening so quickly and I couldn't believe it. God began pouring new designs into my mind. I was looking at a design of an American Flag with a cross in the middle of it and I heard the Holy Spirit begin to whisper "If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from Heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. I added a few touches and posted my new design on Facebook and within hours I had a few orders for this new shirt.
But it didn't stop there.... next I had Yelp contacting me for advertising for my business that would help drive customers to my website. I had created an online rewards program for customers to accumulate points for purchases and different incentives to use towards coupons and gift certificates on the website. I also activated a chat client to engage with customers on the website. I created coupon codes for discounts and special occasions. Then a financing company called After Pay contacted me to continue the process of establishing credit for customers.
And then...I heard the whisper of the Holy Spirit once more.... November 15th.... do a virtual online grand opening! So here we are... one day away from the grand opening and I want to take this opportunity to invite everyone to stop by... online of course! I will be doing most of the activities through Facebook. I will be offering coupon codes for the grand opening event and a free gift with every purchase. In addition, I will be playing bingo online through Facebook throughout the day with prizes, door prizes, and lots of fun! I invite everyone to stop by and browse my site, participate online in the fun, and see what Grace On Display has to offer.
You can join the event by going to Grace On Display Grand Opening Event (Click on that).
