John 19 vs. 17-18:  17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

After he was beaten, scourged, slapped and forced to wear a crown of thorns, Jesus was forced to carry the Cross and he was so much burdened by this that at a stage hCrosse could no longer carry it and some one else had to assist him.

CrossThe cross is the symbol of salvation. Jesus was assisted by a passer by to carry the cross Calvary. Even today, workers are still needed in the vineyard to spread the good news to all the ends of the earth. Cross

Are you willing to make yourself available to carry the cross of Jesus?

                                   

Bible study: Power in the resurrection of Jesus

Posted on Updated on

       

     Ressurection of Jesus 1 Corinthians 15 vs. 20-24:

  20But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.

22For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

24Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 25For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

  1. 1.        Jesus Christ accurately predicted his death, the manner of his death, the number of days he would spend in the grave, and his resurrection.
  2. 2.       Jesus Christ was actually crucified on the cross, his body lowered into the grave, guards were assigned to keep watch over the grave to prevent his body from being stolen, and a stone was rolled to cover the entrance of the grave.
  3. 3.       His blood was shed on the cross, and this is the sacrifice for the remission of our sins. 
  4. 4.       After his death, he went into hell, encountered Satan who had held the Saints captives, defeated him, set the Saints free, and collected the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and Hell. Before then, even the Saints that died were held captive by Satan.
  5. 5.       He is the first man to die, resurrect, and ascend bodily into heaven- all individuals that other religions claim as the Messenger died like ordinary mortals.
  6. 6.       He appeared to over 500 people after his resurrection. Many eyes saw him and witness to his resurrection.
  7. 7.       He finished his earthly assignment after his death and resurrection and all powers in earth and in heaven was given unto him

Bible Passage: God will fight for you

Posted on Updated on

 

Arrest of JesusJohn 18 vs. 3: 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons

Jesus was ambushed and arrested by a gang of security operatives fully armed to the teeth. This is a psychological torture. Dakes Bible commentary on this says the gang comprise up to 600 people.

In spite of this he kept his composure and rebuked Peter for trying to resist his arrest.

We must learn how to manage crises, remain calm in face of provocation and allow God to fight for us. Jesus told Peter to put his sheath down. The battle is the Lord’s

Bible Story on Betrayal of Judas Iscariot

Posted on Updated on

 

                                                                                                Judas Iscariot

                                                         

At times like this when we are remembering the cruxification of Jesus Christ on the cross, it is good to remind ourselves of the sufferings, agonies, torture, pain and humiliation he went through to fulfill this ministry.

 

John 18 vs. 3: 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples. 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons

 

Jesus Christ suffered emotional wreckage on the way to the cross because he was betrayed by his close aid and friend-Judas Iscariot. A man he had dined and wined with and trusted so much that he was given charge of keeping the purse.

 

If you have been betrayed by some you trusted or a person close to you, then you should also have the forgiving spirit of Jesus, who still called Judas a friend when he came to give him away with a kiss.

How to walk in Gods will

Posted on Updated on

 

John 18 vs. 1: 1 

When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples

Jesus was on a retreat when he was arrested, so this is spiritually destabilizing. He had gone to a garden for some quiet time with God the father. 

Yet, he offered no excuses to his arresters and followed them sheepishly. 

 

At times, unwanted guests disturb our quiet moments, we should learn how to refrain from anger and seek the will of God.

Good Friday messages: Significance of the death of Jesus

Posted on Updated on

Matthew 27 vs. 52-53 – And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

  1. Before the death of Jesus, Satan had held many death saints captive under the earth.

  4. But Jesus cruxification and death disannulled power of death over mankind “the gift of God is life through Jesus our Lord”.

Prayer

    • Messengers of death assigned against me, I arrest you in Jesus name.
    • I arrest the spirit of premature death in my household in Jesus name.

Death of Jesus: what happens at death?

Posted on

Matthew 27 vs.50 – Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

  1. Man is made of body, soul and spirit.
  2. At death, the body returns to the ground from where it came, the soul goes to heaven or hell, and the spirit that gives life returns to God.
  3. This passage shows that once the spirit leaves our body or we yield up the ghost, our body becomes lifeless, and the soul also comes out because it can not operate in a lifeless body.

 

Prayer

My spirit man, come alive in Jesus name.
