The Irony of Good Friday

One of the ironies of the Easter week is how most people miss/ignore the significance of Good Friday.


Unfortunately, our society has reduced the significance of Easter to celebrating a rabbit who goes around giving out colored eggs, chocolates, jellybeans, and pink or yellow marshmallow peeps (my favorite…especially when they are a bit stale and crusty on the outside).


The financial world refers to Good Friday as another “Bank Holiday” but it is much more than that.

Especially this year.


Because yesterday was the closing date for the end of the first quarter of 2024…Good Friday being a holiday.


And with record all-time highs on most of the indexes, the numbers were amazing.  Even Gold hit an historical high of $2,240 per ounce.  (Got Gold?)



Translation:  Lots of champaign corks popping in the Hamptons this weekend celebrating the best first quarter on Wall Street since 2019.



Ironically (or NOT) the death of Jesus Christ on the cross (on Good Friday) symbolizes eternal rewards far surpassing anything Wall Street could ever deliver…for those with ears to hear.


And if you don’t understand history and/or prophecy, you won’t understand what I’m about to tell you.


The death of Jesus on the cross (Good Friday) and His “Rising from the dead” (Easter Sunday) was the fulfillment of prophecies dating back as far as 6,000 years ago.


And for the Jesus haters out there, you can find more historical evidence of His existence (and what he accomplished in 33 years on earth) than Caesar or any other person before or since.


So, while Wall Street (and most of the secular world) celebrates financial success, it would be wise to remember that true Kingdom Wealth became available for us on the cross…on Good Friday.



For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

~ 2 Corinthians 8:9 ~



Henceforth the irony of Good Friday.


So, for you history buffs out there – and contrary to popular belief – in 33 years, Jesus spoke more about money than almost any other subject.


And he did NOT say that money is the root of all evil.


The scriptures clearly say…



For the love of money is the root of all evil:

~ 1 Timothy 6:10 ~


And that’s probably why so many investors lose money on Wall Street.


Don’t be one of them.


Instead, read our April edition of “…In Plain English” (HERE) to learn how to Prosper AND Thrive in Turbulent Times.


Share this with a friend…even if they dislike our preaching.

They will thank YOU later.


And remind them:
