Have you ever noticed in the scriptures of the Bible that the days of the week are always referred to as the first day, the second day, the third day, etc?

The Romans gave us the titles we use today: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc...all named after the sun, moon, and stars which were also worshipped as gods.

I want to focus on the THIRD DAY (Tuesday). In Genesis 1:9-13, when God was creating all things, the scripture will read 'God saw that it was good' after every creation then the scripture will read 'and the evening and the morning were the _____ day.

Every day will read that way except for the second day and the third day. God did not see it was good on the second day but on the third day 'God saw it was good' twice.

Because of this, it is believed that the 'Third Day' is a double blessed day. More weddings take place in Israel on the 'Third Day' because of the double blessing.

John 2:1....Jesus performed His first miracle at a WEDDING on the THIRD DAY.

Exodus 19....The people consecrated themselves and God came down on the THIRD DAY.

Ezra 6:15....The temple of God was finished on the THIRD DAY.

Esther 5:1....Esther put on her royal robes and she found favor in the king's sight on the THIRD DAY. (As a result, a whole nation was saved.)

There are many references to the 'Third Day' in the Bible, but they do not always refer to the third day of the week. The term will always be significant though when reading the scripture.

Proverbs 25:2....It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter (word or message).

God does conceal messages in scripture and our honour is to unlock them.

My prayer is that you will be 'Double Blessed'.


  1. Hi Sandra, I'm so glad you are here and have joined the Blogland. I know God is going to use you greatly for HIS name.

  2. Numbers in the Bible. How exciting. My daughter is attending a Christian school next year for the first time. She is in 8th grade. The math teacher told us they will be looking at numbers in the Bible and studying how important they were to God and how exact He is. Every number is intentional.

  10. Hello Sandra,
    I'm over for my dear blogging friend, Susan. What great insight. Could that be possibly why the music group Third Day got it's name. I'm assuming yes.
    I look forward to getting to know you thru your blog.
    God bless.

  11. Hey friend,
    It is great to see that you have increased your knowledge and learned to blog. I am so impressed with your "light bulb moment" and the third day info. Who knows that may have been something to do with how the Third Day music group got it's name. I love their music. May God give you insight to more of those thoughts or light bulb moments so you can share them with us.
    Your sister in God,
    Sondra P.

  12. I'm new to reading your blog. Thanks for commenting on one of mine:)
