Now there was a man named Joseph from the Jewish town of Arimathea. He was a member of the council, a good and righteous man, who had not consented to their purpose and deed, and he was looking for the kingdom of God. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down and wrapped it in a linen shroud, and laid him in a rock-hewn tomb, where no one had ever yet been laid. It was the day of Preparation, and the Sabbath was beginning. The women who had come with him from Galilee followed, and saw the tomb, and how his body was laid; then they returned, and prepared spices and ointments. On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
God had been looking for Easter Day, the Jewish people and creation from the Fall of Man to the coming of Jesus; and we know that there have been a few people blessed with resurrection since Jesus.
God has been seeking for substantial resurrection during the 4,000 years since the degeneration of Adam and Eve. But as ill luck would have it, his cherished desire for substantial resurrection was nullified by Jesus Crucifixion due to the Jewish ignorance, consequently He has been looking for the day of substantial resurrection until today.
Few knew that Jesus’ desire was not for his own sake but for the fulfillment of the desire of God. Jesus sought for the day when the whole creation has the glory of resurrection.
