Jesus died at exactly 12 noon


Peace Crusader and Echo

Tradition has it that Jesus Christ died at about 3pm.  The Holy Bible, King James Version, gives the following accounts:

Matthew 27:45-54
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elijah.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Mark 15:33-39
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of them that by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah.
36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.
37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Luke 23:44-47
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.

The Holy Spirit revealed that Jesus died at exactly 12 noon.  This is in which is in the Pilipino language.  If you don’t understand the language, you may ask a Filipino to translate it for you.  Basically, the Holy Spirit said that it was not about 3pm when Jesus died but at exactly 12 noon.  At exactly at 12 noon!  I found this out on 2009-10-31 while playing the tapes of our sessions with the Holy Spirit.  This must be the reason why He told us before that if anyone dies at 12 noon, He goes straight to Heaven.

The sixth hour is equivalent to 12 noon, and the ninth hour, 3pm in the afternoon.  Logically, a 12 noon death of Jesus is more believable than about 3pm death because would darkness precede His death, or darkness succeed after He died?  Also, if Jesus died at 3pm, would three hours (3pm to 6pm) be enough for Joseph of Arimathea to beg Pontius Pilate to give him the body of Jesus, Pilate inquiring from the centurion if He was already dead, the breaking of bones of the crucified people, the removal of Jesus from the cross, the taking of the body of Jesus to the sepulcher?

Jesus was crucified on preparation day of the high day sabbath (John 19:31).  His body should not remain on the cross on the sabbath day, especially, the next day sabbath day was a high day.  Hence, Joseph of Arimathea went to Pontius Pilate and begged him to give to him the body of Jesus.

Not only did the sky darken when Jesus died.  The earth quaked, the veil of the temple was split into two from the top to the bottom, rocks split apart, and graves were opened, as related in the Holy Bible.

The Holy Bible that we are using now was not directly written by the disciples but by their descendants.  These descendants pieced together the notes of the disciples and came up with the stories.  The descendants were not eyewitnesses to the crucifixion that is why there are inaccuracies in the accounts.  Hence, the Holy Spirit is here with us now correcting these errors.  He recommended that we use the King James Version because He said that it is nearer the truth.

  1. Aristeo,

    The King James is full of errors, as is any English translation (some more than others). With three synoptic gospels confirming the ninth hours, I will go with that. I confess I question why the Holy Spirit would disagree with God’s Word. It is either accurate or it isn’t. If it is the latter, then it is undependable and cannot be trusted.

    As for not being able to comprehend how three hours would be enough time to remove Jesus’ body and place it in the tomb, your conclusion that Jesus died on Thursday explains how this could happen. If it were a Friday, you would be correct to say three hours would hardly be enough time to buy spices, plead for Jesus’ body, remove it from the cross and place it in the tomb since no work of this kind could be done on the Sabbath which began at the 12th hour, or six o’clock. As it was, since the next day was a preparation day, work could be done even until it was dark, which would probably have been around 8:oo or even later.


  2. Sorry that it is only now that I could answer your post. I just saw it that it was not answered yet.

    The spirit of Ama recommends that we use the King James Version of the Holy Bible because He said that it is “nearer the truth” (than other versions). He also recommends that we read Pasiong Mahal, a book chanted in the Philippines during Holy Week. He said that pasiong Mahal was from the Bible but I find it more than the Bible. For example, Pasiong Mahal tells about the names of the thieves who were crucified with Jesus, the names of the three kings (yes, they were kings), Longinus who pierced the side of Jesus, the visit of Saint Elena to Jerusalem during the fourth century AD, etc.

    Where are those originals written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and by Saint Paul? Why do we have Koine Greek only?

    The day when Jesus was crucified was Preparation Day for next day’s high day (John 19:31).

    I would like you to determine which day (Monday to Sunday) was Jesus crucified using the seven criteria (4 from the Holy Bible and 3 from traditions which are logically correct).
