Chag haMatzot (Unleavened Bread),  Chodesh (Full/New Moon)
613 MitzvotMoadim Index, Lunar year 2010-11

                 The beginning of His warmth (Light) is to awaken
                 the repentant one out of the coldness (darkness)
                             with His Blood of purity in his heart.

For example: if the full/new moon (Chodesh) is estimated to rise at 8:28pm CDT (Central Daylight time) on April 9, 2009 after the sun sets at 7:50pm, then the 1st Chodesh (Abib) would be from the sunset of April 9 to the sunset of April 10.
Pesach 2010 begins at the 14th evening of the projected date (April 11). 
Chag haMatzot begins at the evening of April 12 (1st day) and ends at the evening of April 19.

His Alpha/first coming brings the beginning of spiritual life to everyone who repents with His Blood of purification (Passover/Pesach/Son of Life) in his heart who is called out of the kingdom of coldness/darkness, eats His Matzot (Unleavened bread of truth and honesty), receives His Spirit of Life (Shavuot/Penetocost) in his sanctified heart, and dwells in His Kingdom/Tabernacle (Booths/Sukkot) on the earth for the shortened days of his mortal life, till the 8th day of Sukkot is perceived as the great day of His Omega/second coming at his fleshly death.

Fourteenth day of 1st month:
As to 12th chapter of Exodus comparing with Matt. 26:17, they prepared the passover starting the evening that Abib 13 ends, not Abib 14 ends. The translation of Matt. 26:17 should be correctly "Now toward (before) the first day of Unleavened Bread" (Abib 15), the Passover festival began its preparation during the day of Abib 14 between the evenings.   It compares with John 19:14-15 "And it was the preparation of the Passover (Abib 14) for Yahushua to die at 9th hour of that day.  He was buried before the Shabbat (Abib 15) at evening came.” As to Matt. 26:17, they did not put the blood on the doorposts and lintels of the houses.  And they did not kill the lamb flesh in the night, because the Passover Lamb was not yet killed until the next day.  They did not stay in the house all the night till the morning. (Ex. 12:22 "None of of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.”) but they went to the mount Olives in the night and later Yahushua our Lamb was fetched in the night for the slaughter on the next day (Day of preparation/Abib 14).
John 19:14 "Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover it was about the sixth hour."  The day of preparation is 14th day as the Lamb was killed about 3pm (ninth hour) just before the evening came.   Ex. 12:6 "the fourteenth day of the same month the congregation of Yisrael kill it (lamb) between the evenings (between the evening that 13th day ends and the evening that 14th day ends).
Without the Lamb slaughtered and purification in our hearts, we cannot be the children of Unleavened Bread (1 Cor. 5:7-8)
John 19:31 says  the body of Yahushua was removed off the stake and was buried in the evening before the Shabbat (15th day) comes.  (Ex. 12:10 "Not leave any of lamb flesh overnight until the morning.")  All the people went to their houses all the night till the morning (15th) and they rested on the Shabbat (15th day).  The Shabbat (15th day) is 1st day of ULB and also the 7th day Shabbat.
Note: the children of Yisrael stayed in their houses (Ex. 12:22) all night until the morning (the beginning of 15th day).   Num. 33:3-4 "they journeyed from Rameses (the land of Egypt) in the first month, on the 15th day."  Yahushua was risen on the third day (very early in the morning [16th] as the sunrise comes out at the east, since day means from the sunrise till the sunset.  Luke 24:21”But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Yisrael. Indeed, besides all this, it (today) is the third day since these things happened.”

Pesach (Passover):
Num. 9:5 “And they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that YHWH commanded Moshe, so did the children of Yisrael.”; Jos. 5:10; 2 King 23:21-22 “...there was not holden such a Passover from the days of the judges that judged Yisrael, nor in all the days of the kings of Yisrael, nor of the kings of Yahudah.”; 2 Chr. 35:1
Matt. 26:17-18 “...Where will thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?...The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.”; Luke 2:41 “Now his parents went to Yahrushaliem every year at the feast of the passover.”; 22:15-16 “...With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of Elohim.”; 1 Cor. 5:8 “..For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us...”; Heb. 11:24-28 “...Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.”; John 1:29 “...Behold, the Lamb of Elohim, that takes away the sin of the world.”; Rev. 5:12 “...Worthy is the Lamb that has been killed to receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honor, and glory, and blessing.”
Those who do not participate the feast of spiritual Pesach are still eating the leavened bread of ignorance or blindness or hard-heartedness or stiffneckness in keeping their traditions.
John 5:53 “...Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, drink his blood, ye have no life in you.”  The flesh is the Word of Life and the blood is the purification of Life.
Deut. 16:1 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto YHWH thy Elohim: for in the month of Abib YHWH thy Elohim brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.”
Mark 14:12 “And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?”; 1 Cor. 5:7 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.  For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us.”
Yahushua, The Word, is our Pesach (Passover) Lamb to wash our sins away and brings us to the Kingdom of Life.

His Light (Pesach/Passover) delivers us from the bonds of darkness (dark moon):
Ps. 107:10-14 There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in misery and chains, because they had rebelled against the words of Elohim And spurned the counsel of the Most High.  Therefore He humbled their heart with labor; They stumbled and there was none to help.  Then they cried out to YHWH in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses.  He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death And broke their bands apart.
Isa. 9:2  The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.
Matt. 4:16-17 The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a light dawned.  From that time Yahushua began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”; Luke 1:77-79 To give to His people the knowledge of salvation By the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our El, with which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.  John 8:12 Then Yahushua again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."  Acts 26:18 to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.  Eph. 5:8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light inYHWH; walk as children of Light.
Our repentance is in His Paschal death to deliver us from the kingdom of darkness because we were the children of darkness, so we are now the children of His Light.  He comes from the Kingdom of Light (full moon) to deliver all who cry for His salvation, so they are brought to serve Him in the Kingdom of Light.  His death was on Abib 14 in which the dark moon was positioned to open His door to all who repent out of the kingdom of darkness that serve Satan to His Kingdom of Light.

Slaught the Lamb between the evenings:
As to Ex. 12:6, some translations say to kill the Passover lamb at dusk, twilight, or evening.  Look at the Hebrew word for it: haarbayim (plural) meaning the evenings, as found in the Rotherham OT.  So it can be killed between the evening that Abib 13 ends and evening that Abib 14 ends like in the NT our true Lamb was killed during the daylight (Abib 14) in which Yahushua died at the ninth hour (3pm) before the feast of Passover can be started at the evening of Abib 15 with the unleavened bread to eat.  The reason using “between the evenings” is to kill the lamb, to skin it, to clean it, and roast it in the fire on the day of preparation (Abib 14) in order to celebrate the feast of Passover at the evening when Abib 14th ends, along with the unleavened bread to eat.
Throw our works of impurity at the kingdom of darkness as they are to be consummed in the fire thru our repentance to purify our hearts thru the slaughtering of our Lamb and the washing of His blood.

Bake the unleavened bread for two days on the sixth day (14th of Abib and 21st of Abib):
Ex. 16:22-30 Now on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. When all the leaders of the congregation came and told Moshe, then he said to them, This is what YHWH meant: Tomorrow is a Shabbat observance, a holy Shabbat to YHWH.  Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over put aside to be kept until morning.  So they put it aside until morning, as Moshe had ordered, and it did not become foul nor was there any worm in it.  Moshe said, Eat it today, for today is a Shabbat to YHWH; today you will not find it in the field.  Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the Shabbat, there will be none.  It came about on the seventh day that some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.  Then YHWH said to Moshe, How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My instructions?  See, YHWH has given you the Shabbat; therefore He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.  So the people rested on the seventh day.
The day of preparation (6th day of lunar week) is on the 14th day of Abib as to bake the unleavened bread for two days (14th and 15th), so we come to rest on the Shabbat on the 15th and eat the unleavened bread which is on the 1st day of Unleavened Bread.  Likewise with the 21st of Abib which is on the 7th day of ULB, it is also the day of preparation to bake the unleavened bread for two days (21st and 22nd).
Lev 23:5-7 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month between the evenings is the Passover of YHWH.  Then on the fifteenth day of the same month there is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to YHWH; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.  On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not do any laborious work.
For those who follow the Gregorian dates: Suppose that the day of Passover falls on a Tuesday and the 15th of Abib is their high sabbath on the following day (Wednesday) then they would make the unleavened bread for two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) so they rest on that Wednesday, then they would do the same again for two days (Friday and Saturday) so they rest on their sabbath (Saturday rest day), in which is unscriptural.  Why twice?
Or suppose that the day of Passover falls on a Thursday and the 15th of Abib is their high sabbath on the following day (Friday), and their sabbath (Saturday), then they would have to make the unleavened bread for three days (Thursday, Friday, Saturday), so they rest on two sabbaths (15th and 16th).
Also those erroneously claim that there was the high sabbath (15th of Abib) on a Friday, then the weekly sabbath (16th) on the following day (Saturday) before the resurrection of the Messiah, in which the unleavened bread had to be made for three days because of 2 sabbaths?

Writings of Soncino Zohar and Midrash Rabbah on the concealed moon during the Passover night:
This text from the Zohar appears to support a belief that at the time Israel came out of Egypt , it was a ‘concealed moon’ [15th day of the month] and that we remember this event each year on a ‘concealed moon’ during the first month of the year.
So the TRUE 15th day of the first month of the Jewish year is a ‘concealed moon’ for the festival day of Passover and it is a picture of our being illuminated by the sun ‘Yahushua’ who causes us to keep the accurate Sabbaths, which begin to be called from the FULL MOON, which is the first day of the month.
Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 40b
Observe that when the Israelites were about to enter the Holy Land, Moses described it as a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness (Deut. VIII, 9), in contrast to the bread of misery, of poverty, which was their food in Egypt, when the moon did not derive blessing and light from the sun, when she was not illumined by the Jubilee. And because they did not carry out the peritah in Egypt , the unification and harmonization of the Divine attributes was not manifested in its fulness. Why they continued to eat the bread of poverty in the land of Israel was in remembrance of Egypt .
This appears to say that Israel could not consecrate the true new moon until they were sanctified in Egypt and then they were given the first month for the beginning of months:
Midrash Rabbah - Exodus XV:25
If a secular vessel becomes sanctified when it became filled with anything holy, then how much more do Israel, who are themselves holy, sanctify the new moon? Elohim said: ' I am holy, do I then need sanctification? But I will hallow Israel, so that they may sanctify Me; for this reason does it say: And ye shall be holy unto Me; for I YHWH am holy, who made you holy. 4 David also says: Yet Thou art holy, O Thou that art enthroned upon the praises of Israels (PS. XXII, 4). When did Israel begin to consecrate the new moon? In Egypt ; hence it is written: THIS MONTH SHALL BE UNTO YOU.  (XII, 2). It is written: He declareth His word unto Yaaqob (Jacob) (Ps. CXLVII, 19)-this refers to the Torah. His statutes and His ordinances.
Exodus 12:1-2  And YHWH spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt , saying,  This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
So it looks like YHWH brought the children of Israel out of Egypt on a ‘dark moon’ and that they were to ‘remember that event’ every year on the dark moon, to remember that He brought them out of darkness and into His light.   It looks like Israel being in Egypt was not keeping the right Sabbaths and then they went into bondage of the Egyptians and then  He sanctified them on the dark moon – the 15th day of the month.  Then He told them that the 1st day was the beginning of the months which was the FULL MOON.

Yahushua our Passover died once for all who repent from the kingdom of darkness:
As Yahushua, our Passover, died once, that is at the dark moon on 14th of Abib, so we, the repentant ones, were baptized in the death of our Messiah once as to put away our former things and now we have His new things to come to us daily.   Yahushua dwells in the Kingdom of Light forever so we now abide in His Kingdom of Light forever.  We carry His Paschal blood sanctified in our hearts to share with all in the world of darkness who awake from the kingdom of darkness to His Kingdom of Light.  We do not turn again and again to the things of darkness like the gentiles do daily.  Once His Word of Light shines us out of the darkness then we turn to Him wholly.  Did the Israelies turn back to Egypt when they come in the baptism of the Red Sea?  No. 
Remember Lot's wife, she turned herself to the kingdom of darkness, so we are not turning to the things of darkness.
The Passover is the door open to those who cry out for His deliverance.  Yahushua the Messiah only comes to all who need to repent from the kingdom of darkness.  Every spiritual birth has the Passover (His blood sanctification) in his heart and has the Chag Matzot (His bread/Word of honesty and sincerity written in his heart), as well as the Shavuot (Holy Spirit) that dwells in his heart, and the Sukkot (Kingdom of Light) to abide and to serve YHWH forever.  All spiritual beings share their participation in His living feasts daily to all who hunger for His Word of Life.
The Passover is the Blood of Messiah to wash away the sins of this kingdom of darkness and to bring to the sanctification of the hearts of repentance where the Holy Spirit comes to dwell.  We were the children of darkness, and were delivered by His beloved Son who died for our sins, turned from the kingdom of darkness to His Kingdom of Light in the point of reversal, and now we are the children of His Light daily.  Let us eat the bread of His Light daily as we throw all the bread (deeds) of darkness away. 
Because of the sin, the moon bleeds its light (losing its light) monthly, it is likewise with the womanly (monthly) cycle.   All the fleshly births are of the womanly cycle that dies itself because of sin!   The repentance is the work of crying out for His deliverance (Pesach) out of the cycle of darkness!   Can we eat the unleavened bread of honesty and sincerity if we do not repent out of the cycle of lawlessness (darkness)?

Second Passover:
Pesach is always beginning at 14th of Abib (1st month) to observe for all who believed in the truth of YHWH.   But with the case of those, spoken in Numbers 9: 6-14, who were unclean with the dead body (Lev. 11:34), did not present the offering to YHWH during the feast of Pesach of 1st month that evening.  YHWH, relating to verses 10-12, permits them to observe the Pesach to YHWH in the second month on the 14th day at evening because of the uncleanness with dead person.
The first one applies the same for 2nd Pesach to consume the remaining meat by fire prior to the the rising of the sun.   We consume/eat the Word of Truth (meat of Lamb) continually and all our dead works are consumed in the fire before the heavenly Father/Light see us perfectly prepared for Him in the end of our flesh, otherwise we become foolish leaving the Word of Truth not consumed at all.

Three days:
What is a significance of “three days” in verse 19 of John 2?  John 2:19 "Yahushua answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."  There are over 60 “three days” phrases in the Bible.
Gen 40:18-19 “...the three branches are three days; within yet three days shall Pharoah lift up your head, and restore you to your office...”; Ex. 3:18 “...three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YHWH our Elohim.”; 10:22-23 “..thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days...but all the children of Yisrael had light in their dwellings.”; 15:23-24 “..they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water....the people murmured against Moshe.”; Jos. 1:11 “...within three days ye shall pass over this Yordan, to go in to possess the land...”; 1 Sam 20:19 “..when thou (David) hast stayed three days...hide thyself...”; 2 Sam. 24:13-17 “...there be three days’ pestilence in thy land?...”; Est. 4:16 “ ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days...”; 2 Kings 2:16-17 “The Spirit of YHWH hath taken him (Eliyahu) up...they sought three days, but found him not.”; Jon 1:17 “...Yonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”
Matt 12:40 “For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”; 15:32 “..three days, and have nothing to eat...”; 26:75 “75 And Kepha remembered the word which Yahushua had said, Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.  And he went out and wept bitterly.”; Mark 8:31 “ killed, and after three days rise again.”; 14:58 “I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.”; Luke 2:46 “..after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors...”; John 21:17 “He said to him the third time, Simon, son of Yahuchanan, do you love Me?  Kepha was grieved because He said to him the third time, Do you love Me  And he said to Him, Rabbi, You know all things; You know that I love You.  Yahushua said to him, Tend My sheep.”; Acts 9:9 “And he (Shaul) was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.”; 10:16, 19 “This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky...While Kepha was reflecting on the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, three men are looking for you.”;
Ex. 3:17-18: From the day of affliction of Egypt (Passover), the children of Yisrael went thru the Red Sea (baptism of water) to the wilderness of Shur to serve YHWH in the mountain of holiness (land flowing with milk and honey).  The three days indicates at the beginning of our hearts of repentance (Passover/Yahushua/day of Purification), then baptism of water (Holy Spirit/day of first-fruits), and service of YHWH in holiness (Feast of Tabernacles/Father/day of fullness/freedom).  For David’s foolishness, Yonah’s disobedience, the complaints of children of Yisrael for no water, and all other manners of afflictions, they needed three days from purification of hearts to restore fully back to serve the holiness of YHWH.  Yahushua was killed (His blood purifying our hearts), buried (our sins destroyed), was raised in the Temple of YHWH in our hearts.  1 John 5:4-10 is the indication of three that bear witness in earth (blood, water, Holy Spirit).  The meaning of day is the activity of light (works of Spirit).

Our eternal Lamb (Yahushua haMashiyach [the Messiah]):
Isa. 53:7 “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before his shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
John 1:29 “...Behold the Lamb of Elohim, which taketh away the sin of the world.”; Rev. 5:6 “...stood a Lamb as it had been slain...”, 12 “...Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”; 7:14 “...These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”; 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Our eternal Lamb is worthy to receive all the spiritual powers, for He comes to save us from the eternal doom to destroy because of the man’s sin to separate from His holiness.

To build the temple in three days:
It is not related to the times of the death and resurrection of our Messiah Yahushua, because He never destroys His Temple/Kingdom, but rather destroy our old temples when we commit ourselves to Him upon our repentance.  As to Matt. 12:26 “If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?”, therefore He cannot throw His eternal Kingdom.  Satan’s kingdom shall be destroyed by YHWH at the end (of every fleshly age).
First, we throw out our old temple of man in heart (kingdom of good and evil) possessed by Satan the father of this world, his word of lawlessness, and his unclean spirit.  Then we are restored back to the Kingdom of Light through the day of Passover to purge our hearts, the day of Shavuot to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit, and the day of Sukkot to dwell in the tabernacle of YHWH eternally.  Three days is indicated from the day of purification (Passover/Yahushua our Messiah), then the day of holiness received (Shavuot/Holy Spirit), to the day of dwelling in the tabernacle of our heavenly Father (Sukkot/Father).

Three days and three nights:
Read Matt. 12:39-42: "But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.  “The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.  “The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here."
Noteworthy, Jonah did not die in the belly of whale during the three days and three nights, therefore Yahushua is alive in the heart of the earth (the heart of inhabitants) judging between the good and the evil.
Why was Jonah thrown into the belly of the big fish (whale)?  It was because Jonah fled from the command of YHWH saying to go to the city of Nineveh and preach the inhabitants to repent of their wickedness.   If Jonah had listened to YHWH's command, he would have never thrown in the belly of whale.  He did not die in the belly of darkness and restore back to His Kingdom of Light.  Those who are the children of rebellion like Jonah who fled from YHWH’s command but later repent his wrongdoing, are in the belly of fish likewise in the heart of the earth (under judgment/Law) till they repent from their works of rebellion and become the children of freedom (under grace).
Why three days and three nights in the belly of whale?
What is inside the belly of whale?  Darkness, not comfort, grief, shame for foolishness, hidden from the Kingdom of Light, death, hatred.  As to Gen. 2:9 "the tree of knowledge of good and evil not to eat its fruits", Adam and Chauwah failed to obey YHWH's command and they were thrown out of the Garden of Eden to do their labor in the earth.
As to Matt 26:34-35, Kepha (Peter) denied Yahushua three times of following Him.  Kepha was in the trouble of his saying hidden from Yahushua with his grief, but later Yahushua asked him (John 21:15-17) to love Him the three times as Kepha repented of his wrongdoing.
Why three times? It is the witness of three in the heaven (1 John 5:6-8), it is the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit as they are united in one.   Everyone has three witnesses in his heart: It can be either YHWH his Father in Kingdom of Goodness, His Word/Son, and His Spirit, or Satan his father of kingdom of evil, his word, his unclean spirit possessed in his heart.  The three greatest spiritual fruits are love, hope, and faith, yet the love is the greatest of all (YHWH is love, His Word is faithful, His Spirit is hope to those who believe in Him) in 1 Cor. 13.
For Jonah, he had to repent from his wrongdoing from the kingdom of darkness (belly of whale): from the kingdom of darkness [3 nights] (Satan, his word, his spirit) denying YHWH's command, to restore himself back to YHWH, His Word, and His Spirit [three days].

Three days vs. three nights:
John 11:9-10 Yahushua answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.  But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."
The day indicates the Kingdom of Light and the night indicates the kingdom of darkness, in which both are in the works of opposition.
Three days: The day of Passover [His Word of purification in the heart of repentant], the day of Shavuot [His Spirit received in the heart], and the day of Sukkot [YHWH our Father dwell in the heart]. John 21:17 "He said to him the third time, Simon, son of Yahuchanan, do you love Me? Kepha was grieved because He said to him the third time, Do you love Me?"
Three nights: The night of denying His Word of purification (Passover) [Satan's word of lies], the night of denying the Holy Spirit (Shavuot) [his unclean spirit], and the night of denying the heavenly Father (Sukkot) [Satan the father of darkness]. Matt. 26:75 "And Kepha remembered the word which Yahushua had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times. And he went out and wept bitterly."

The Son of man is in the heart of earth:
The Son of man is on the seat of judgment (heart) of the earth (the people) till the end of the flesh. Luke 21:34-36 "them that dwell on the face of the earth"; Acts 28:26-28 "the heart of the people".  He comes to the hearts of repentant ones to throw out their old temple for the new Temple where the Holy Spirit dwells in their hearts.
The left hand of the Son at the crucifixion is at the kingdom of three nights for the unbeliever (child of darkness) serve Satan, his word of lawlessness, his unclean spirit.   The right hand of the Son is at the Kingdom of three days for the believer (child of Light) serves YHWH, His Word of Light, and His Spirit.  Matt. 6:3 "But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing."  As everyone has two bodies of opposition, your right hand (imperishable body) does what is good in giving to the poor and your left hand (perishable body) does not do what your right hand does the opposite.  We, the former servants of the kingdom of darkness (3 nights) subjected to Satan the father of lawlessness, his word of lawlessness and spirit/act of lawlessness, but now upon our repentance out of the kingdom of darkness, we return to His Word of Life (Yahushua/Passover Lamb), His Spirit of Life (Holy Spirit) and His Father of Life (3 days).

The Son of Man judges in the heart of His people between the kingdom of three nights and the Kingdom of three days:
Matt. 12:39-42: "But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Yahushua the Messiah comes to the repentant hearts in the beginning of their spiritual lives (sowing time) to separate between the kingdom of lawlessness (three nights) on His left hand and the Kingdom of His Righteousness (three days) on His right hand until the end of their fleshly ages, then He hands their spiritual houses to His Kingdom of Life at His coming (harvest time).  The three nights are illuminated as Satan, his words of lawlessness and his acts of lawlessness as to oppose what is commanded for all to repent from the kingdom of darkness to His Kingdom of Life thru the day of Passover (Son/Word of Life), the day of Shavuot (Holy Spirit), and the day of Sukkot (heavenly Father).  No evil generation comes to His Kingdom of Life unless they repent from the kingdom of evilness.

Third day:
Yahushua is the very first-fruit of all on 16th of Aviv (3rd day he was raised) since he was killed on 14th of Aviv between the 2 evenings (14th and 15th) [Ex. 12:6 Rotherham].  Rise on the third day (about 15 times in N.T.): Luke 24:1-7 “Now upon the first of the Shabbats (Wave Sheaf day), very early in the morning (16th), they came unto the sepulchre...they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre...He is not here, but is risen.”; 21 “But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Yisrael. Indeed, besides all this, it (today) is the third day since these things happened.”
The third day is known often for the day of the resurrection of our Messiah after His living sacrifice was performed on the day of Passover and was completely buried in all our fleshly works which are completely consumed.  The third day is illuminated that we become the first-fruits in our Messiah’s resurrection.  We come to the day of Passover (1st day) thru the washing of His Blood after our confession of the wrongdoings against the Law of Righteousness, then receive the baptism of Holy Spirit on the day of Shavuot (2nd day) before we come to dwell in His Kingdom of Life on the day of Sukkot (3rd day) thru the resurrection of our Messiah.

Luke 23:50-56 and 24:1-25 explanation of "Third Day":
Luke 23:50-24:3 "50 And a man named Yoseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man 51 (he had not consented to their plan and action), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of Elohim; 52 this man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Yahushua.  53 And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain.  54 It was the preparation day, and the Shabbat was about to begin.  55 Now the women who had come with Him out of Galilee followed, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid.  56 Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And on the Shabbat they rested according to the commandment.  24:1 But on the first of Shabbats, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.  2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Master Yahushua....6 He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, 7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again...14 And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place.  15 While they were talking and discussing, Yahushua Himself approached and began traveling with them.  16 But their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him.  17 And He said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking? And they stood still, looking sad.  18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?  19 And He said to them, What things? And they said to Him, “The things about Yahushua the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of Elohim and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.  21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Yisrael. Indeed, besides all this, it (today) is the third day since these things happened.  22 But also some women among us amazed us. When they were at the tomb early in the morning, 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said that He was alive.  24 Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see.  25 And He said to them, O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!  26 Was it not necessary for haMashiyach to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?"
Chapter 23 Verses 52-54: 1st day: The preparation day (6th weekly day before Shabbat) is Aviv 14th as to what the lamb is to be slaughtered between two evenings (14th and 15th).  Yahushua our Lamb was killed during 14th day.  The burial of His crucified body was done before the day of Shabbat began at the sunset.
Verse 55-56: The women followed and saw the tomb where Yoseph laid the body of Yahushua in, returned and prepared spices and perfumes before the Shabbat (15th) day began at the sunset.  The death of Yahushua on the stake is about 3 pm giving time to bury the crucified Body and to prepare spices and perfumes before the Shabbat comes at the sunset.  2nd day: Shabbat day (7th weekly day) is Aviv 15 as to rest according to the commandment to refrain all the fleshly works.  The 22nd verse of Exodus 12 "...none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning." speaks of not going out of house during the night of Aviv 15.
Chapter 24 Verses 1-2: 3rd day: the first of Shabbats (beginning of the count of 7 Shabbats to Shavuot/Pentecost) and also it is the day of Wave Sheaf (Aviv 16 - 1st weekly day).  The women brought the spices which they had prepared to the tomb not finding the body of our Master early in the day.
Verses 6-7: Angelic message to remember that He is raised on the third day.
Verse 14-21 The things/happenings talked about are: Yahushua's capture in the night of Aviv 14, the accusations against Him, His crucifixion about the sixth hour of Aviv 14, His death about the ninth hour (3pm) of Aviv 14 which is 1st day, His burial before the Shabbat (Aviv 15) started, they rest on the Shabbat which is 2nd day, His body not found early in the day (Aviv 16) which is 3rd day.
Verse 21 says all these things came to happen and it is 3rd day when Yahushua was with the men, not knowing His resurrection, conversing about His crucifixion and death.
Verses 25-26  Yahushua who was raised from His death and talked to them on the third day.
