A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: The Saviour On The Cross [14/04/17]
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:46. Read: Mk 15:33-41
A Preacher was preaching to a pagan, telling him how much things Jesus Christ suffered in the hands of sinners whom He came to die for. How He was humiliated, denied justice, how the people preferred a notorious arm robber to Him and how He was scourged for no crime. And finally, how He was nailed to the cross among armed robbers. Even on the cross, He was nailed on and mocked by men. The pagan began to sub uncontrollably. Why are you crying the Preacher man asked? This is not true the pagan replied. It’s true the Preacher responded. Then why do you tell a story so real of the agony of Jesus with a dry eyes? The pagan replied. Where is your tears?
He took upon himself the pains no human being could bear – not even angel could. He was the best man for the job. He went to the cross to purchase salvation through His pure blood. His last word “It’s finished” was the seal of human freedom from satanic oppression and bondage. He also returned the fivefold authority Adam gave to the devil back to us. He put an end to every curse upon the earth and man. Oh, what a man of sorrow! Rejected and disdained by men.
- His sufferings, our life. His Death on the cross, our Salvation.
