What happened on that Saturday?

Let us meditate on what happened on the day after Jesus was buried in the new  tomb by Amirite Joseph. The day after he was buried it was the Sabbath day and it is a silent resting day. 

Matthew 27 :62-63
The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. 63 “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’

The Pharisees and chief priests all went to Pilate to say that false prophecy will arise that Jesus has risen after 3 days as he had said before his crucifixion by stealing Jesus's body from the tomb by the 11 disciples since Judas Iscrot has died already. They requested extra security for Jesus's tomb and as per their request Pilate placed 16 guards in which 4 took shift of 3 hours to guard Jesus's tomb. There was also a very strong seal on the tomb too. 

Matthew 27 :64-66
 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.

There will be silent seasons in all of our lives when there seems to be no subsequent answers to prayers and petitions. When everything seems stagnant and dormant, Such seasons can be very challenging . Many may question our faith and we may face struggles mentally , go into depression, anxiety ,stress .We may feel God is not working but that's not true. Whenever we feel God is not working anything in our lives that is the silent season which he performs most in the hidden phase . We may not release it but such phases or seasons can change our faith 
.
Ephesians 4:8-10
This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high,
    he took many captives
    and gave gifts to his people.”
9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.
 During this silent phase that is the day after Jesus was buried he was not silent but he went down to the underworld and liberated many souls.


Hebrews 2 :14-15
Since the children have flesh and blood he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death that is, the devil15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.


Hebrew 12 : 22-23
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God,the heavenly Jerusalem.You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,


Jesus did not remain doing nothing after he was buried . It may have seemed so to us but a lot of significant works were being performed in the Spiritual realms. He preached the gospel in hell and saved many .

Psalms 23 :4

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil,for you are with me;your rod and your staff, they comfort me.


Psalms 55:22
Cast your cares on the Lord  and he will sustain you;he will never let   the righteous be shaken.

Cast all our worries and burdens to the Lord he will take care of all our problems so even if we seem very sad God is working through the problems silently and an answer will be visible soon after the phase.
After the day Jesus was buried he was resurrected and not even the seal was broken off the tomb. The silent day a lot happened but nothing is visible to us but eventually his glory as he resurrected on the third day is visible and praised.
