JESUS’ DEATH – 60 SECONDS ~~~

60 seconds with God…
For The next 60 seconds, set aside whatever
You’re doing and take this opportunity!
Let’s see if Satan can stop this…

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS

At the age of 33,
Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the time crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was
Even more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied…

Each nail
Was 6 to 8 inches long.

The nails Were driven into His wrist.
Not Into His palms as is commonly Portrayed.
There’s a tendon in the wrist that
Extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew
That when the nails were being hammered into the
Wrist, that tendon would tear and
Break, forcing Jesus to use His back
Muscles to support himself, so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet
Were nailed together. Thus He was forced to
Support Himself on the single nail that
Impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could
Not support himself with His legs for long because of the pain,
so He was forced to alternate between arching His
Back and using his legs just to continue to
Breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the
Suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this
Reality for over 3 hours.

Yes,
Over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of
Suffering? A few minutes before He died,
Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water
From his wounds.

From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side…
But do we remember the many wounds
Made to his body. A hammer
Driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped
And a nail hammered through the arches, then a
Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. And…
Before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and
Beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the
Flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His
Face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The
Crown of thorns (two to three inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most men
Would not have survived this torture.
He had no more blood
To bleed out, only water poured from His Wounds. The
Human adult body contains about 3.5 liters
(just less than a gallon) of blood.

Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood;
He had three nails hammered into His
Members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond
That, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His Chest..

All these without
Mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own
Cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his
Face and threw stones (the cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience,
So that you may have free access to God.

So that your sins can be “washed” away.
All of them, with no exception!
Don’t ignore this.

JESUS CHRIST DIED…FOR YOU!

For you, who now read this e-mail.
Do not believe that He only died for others
(those who go to church or for pastors, bishops, etc).

He died for you!
It is easy to e-mail jokes or silly photos,
But when it comes to God,
Sometimes we feel ashamed to forward a message about Him on
To others.
We are worried of what they may think.

Accept the reality, the truth, that
JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD .

God has special plans for YOU !
Share this with all your friends…
About what He went through to save you.
Really think about it!

May God bless you!

For the next 60 seconds,
Set aside what you’re doing and take
This opportunity! Please don’t allow Satan to stop this.
1.Pray for the person who sent this message to you.
2. Send this message to 10 people.. . More if you wish.
3.That way, 10 people will pray for you
and you will encourage many people
to pray to God for others.
4. Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life, as you do what pleases Him.

If you are not ashamed to do this, please, follow Jesus’ instructions.
He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33): “Everyone therefore
who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge
before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me
before others, I also will deny before My
Father in heaven”.

Nothing can separate us!

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, not any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

The second death, the lake of fire or eternity with Christ.

Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;  nor can corruption inherit incorruption.  Behold I tell you a mystery:  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed–in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality. So when this incorruptible has put on incorruption, and the mortal must put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is : Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Corinthians 15:50-54;   Also read 15:55-58.

But I do want not you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those that have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.

And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.  1 Thessalonians 4:13:18

Are you an unrepentant sinner?

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

Psalm 33:18-22

Behold the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield . For our hearts rejoice in Him, because we have trusted His holy name. Let your mercy, Oh Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.

This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God;  and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know the love of God, for God is love. In this the love of God is manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought to love one another. 1 John 4:7-11

No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:12-16

Love has been perfected among us in this:  that we may have boldness in the day of judgement; because as He is, so are we in the world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:17-19

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him:  that he who loves God must love his brother also. 1 John 4:20-21

You Need Me Every Moment

I read this today in my daily Devotions by Sarah Young, Jesus Calling.

You need me every moment. Your awareness of your constant need for Me is your greatest strength. Your neediness, if properly handled, is a link to My Presence. However, there are pitfalls that you must be on guard against:  self-pity, self-preoccupation, giving up. Your inadequacy presents you with a continual choice–deep dependence on Me, or despair. The emptiness you feel within will be filled either with problems or with My Presence. Make Me central in your consciousness by praying continually:  simple short prayers flowing out of the present moment. Use My Name liberally, to remind you of My Presence Keep on asking and you will receive, so that your gladness may be full and complete…….

1 Thessalonians 5:17; John 16:24

Yes, I was going there today. I am going to read to make this continual choice.

Lord Jesus, help Me!

Preach the Word, be Loyal to the Faith and strong in Grace.

Paul’s Encouragement to Timothy:

Be loyal to the faith: 2 Timothy 1:13-14

Hold fast in the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Jesus Christ. That good thing which was committed to you by the Holy Spirit which dwells in us.

Be strong in grace:  2 Timothy 2:2-26

You therefore my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And these things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:1-3

Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel, for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained. Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain salvation which is in Jesus Christ with eternal glory.

This is a faithful saying:

For if we died with Him,

We shall also live with Him. (Romans 6:4-8)

If we endure,

we shall also reign with Him. (Revelation 1:6; 5:10; 20:4,6)

If we deny Him,

He will also deny us. (1 John 2:19; Matthew 10:33)

If we are faithless,

He remains faithful;

He cannot deny Himself. (John 3:16; John 3:18; Hebrew 10:23)

Paul to Timothy (2 Timothy 3:1-9)

But know this, in the last days perilous times will come:  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unloving , unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres (most likely two Egyptian magicians who opposed Moses, pretended to be Jewish proselytes, instigated worship of the golden calf and were killed with the rest of the idolaters, (Exodus 7:11,22; 8:7, 18, 19; 9:11), so do these also resist the truth:  men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be made manifest to all, as theirs also was.

Preach the Word (2 Timothy 4:1-22)

I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:  Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and teaching.

Jesus rejected in Nazareth

So he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath Day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of  the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it is written:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,

Because He has anointed Me

To preach the gospel to the poor,

He sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind,

To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Then He closed the book and handed it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, “Is this not Joseph’s son?”

He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, Physician, heal yourself!. Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country. But then He said, “Assuredly I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”

So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things were filled with wrath and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.

Luke 4:16-30
