BUT THEN SUNDAY CAME!
"Our fathers trusted in thee, they trusted, and thou DIDST DELIVER THEM. Theycried unto thee, AND WERE DELIVERED;they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. But I am a worm, and no man; areproach of men, and despised of the people." (Psalm 22:4-6)
Psalm 22 describes in intimate detail the death of Christ upon the cross. After severancefrom Christ from God BECAUSE of 
spiritual death,
the only thing Christ has left
ISFAITH AND TRUST IN GOD.
He must place all of His faith, all of His trust in the promises that God will deliver His own. Christ went from a union, which requires nofaith, because faith is for that which is not known, not seen. Union does not require faith,
because union is based upon an experiential knowing, a seeing."Be not far from me, for trouble is near; FOR THERE IS NONE TO HELP."(Psalm 22:11)
Again I would ask why Christ would make such a statement if God were in fact still inunion with Him. This is a statement of aloneness, of separation, or hope that God, whilenow severed, is still near. If union were still a fact, God would
BE IN CHRIST, ANDCHRIST WOULD KNOW IT.
The statement to be not far away is a statement that Godis gone, and Christ is pleading that He not move FAR, FAR AWAY. There are many such proofs in Scripture, all which prove that Christ did indeed die a spiritual death upon thecross, and payment number one in the
MOST AWESOME PURCHASE EVER MADEIN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE.Physical Death
The sequence that Christ went through on the cross follows exactly the sequence laiddown in Genesis, for the creation and fall of man:
1. Creation with a live spirit2. Sin enters in, and spiritual death follows instantly.3. Physical death will now follow because of spiritual death.4. After physical death, descent to the pit to await the second death.
To the unbeliever and the scoffer, no amount of evidence will be accepted, because theheart is not right to accept any evidence. You could transport the mocker and scoffer back through time and let him watch the entire event and he would come up with some reasonto reject it. The next payment due from Christ is physical death, because man must die a physical death.
 
"Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, YIELDED UP THE GHOST." (Matthew 27:50)"And Jesus cried with a loud voice, AND GAVE UP THE GHOST." (Mark 15:37)"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, 'Father, into thy hands Icommend My spirit: and having said thus, He GAVE UP THE GHOST." (Luke23:46)"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished; and Hebowed His head, and GAVE UP THE GHOST." (John 19:30)
All of the Gospels claim that Jesus died. Even Pilate was astounded at how fast Christhad died; this is
IN SIX HO
[/u] He was the Son of Man. Man has 6000 years of  probation upon planet Earth. Does the six hours on the cross represent the span of man onEarth? Pilate sent centurions over to
VERIFY THAT CHRIST WAS DEAD, AND TOFINISH HIM IF HE WASN'T
Pilate knew all about the RESURRECTIONPROPHECY:
"But when they came to Jesus, and saw that HE WAS DEAD ALREADY, theybrake not his legs:But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith there came outBLOOD AND WATER " (John 10:33-34)
We then have verification of the actual death of Christ, and we have the gainsaying Jewswho had this thrown in their faces:
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of JesusChrist of Nazareth,WHOM YE CRUICIFIED,whom God raised FROM THE DEAD,even by him doeth this man stand before you whole." (Acts 4:10)
Peter was under the impression that Christ had died. He was also under the impressionthat God had raised him from the dead,
PROOF POSITIVE THAT ALL ASPECTS OFTHE KINSMAN-REDEEMER LAW WERE FULFILLED AND ACCEPTED ASFULL RANSOM PRICE.
We should also note that Christ was under the impression thatHe had died, and He ought to know, being the primary witness to it all:
 
"I am he that liveth, AND WAS DEAD; and behold,I am ALIVE FOR EVERMORE, AMEN; and have the keys of hell and of death."(Revelation 1:18 )"And unto the angel of the Church in Smyrna write: these things saith the first andthe last, WHICH WAS DEAD, AND IS ALIVE.. " (Revelation 2:8 )
The evidence is conclusive, and if you need more proof than this, your problem is not theevidence, it is with your heart.
Did Christ shed blood?
It is the requirement of law that for the
remission of sins there has to be the sheddingof innocent blood.
This is not a SYMBOLIC SHEDDING, as some apostates suggest, but a REAL AND LITERAL SHEDDING OF REAL AND LITERAL BLOOD. By thevirgin birth Christ is innocent of the knowledge of good and evil. By His life, heremained sinless. Thus He is guiltless, and is able to pay all prices. Did He actually shedhis own blood, the blood of a human being, a near kinsman, in this transaction?
"But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there outBLOOD AND WATER." (John 19:34)
We must not forget that the act of SCOURGING, WHICH PILATE ORDERED BEDONE UPON CHRIST, RIPS THE SKIN ASUNDER AND CAUSES VASTAMOUNTS OF BLEEDING (Matthew 27:26) The act of spiking Christ to the crosswouldalso draw blood. We can thus conclude that
CHRIST FULFILLED THATREQUIREMENT IN FULL.Did Christ face the second death?
It is a requirement for sinners that they face the second death, and must be assigned their  place in Hades to await this event. The question to ask is this: did Christ descend into theholding place for sinners, and taste of the torments and the agony of hell in our place?Based upon the completion of all other requirements, the evidence would suggest that Hedid, and that He was active in that region while His body was in the tomb awaiting theresurrection.
"Now that he ascended, what is it but that he ALSO DESCENDED FIRST INTO
