Everlasting Rest: Sabbaths Old and New – The Lord’s Day Covenant Till the Unending Day of Glory

His resurrection on Sunday sanctified that day as the Lord’s day, as the microscopic weekly symbol of the Day of the Lord.   His rising as the Sun of righteousness before that of the created sun — forecast the nightless Day of the new creation when He Himself shall illuminate the New Jerusalem which has no need of the created sun.39   Even as He illuminated the sunlightless world before the fourth formation-day.  

His resurrection according to the flesh on the Lord’s day is the seal and earnest, the guarantee of the resurrection of all flesh on the Day of the Lord.   For in Christ’s resurrection "lost time" is engulfed by "eschatological time" — death, by life.
