Crucifixion

The darkness


During Christ’s crucifixion the sky grew dark. For decades I have always looked upon this moment for something other than many assume it to be.
There was no solar eclipse on this day, but I have always seen it as the gathering of the fallen angels to watch the spectacle of the death of the Son of Man. Not realizing in their pride and arrogance that it was actually their own sentencing they were observing.
A sentencing that will begin to be handed out that day Christ sets foot again upon Mount Olive.
Matthew 27:45 – Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

Did you know that Daniel was given a prophecy that was not only about the rebuilding of Jerusalem, but the crucifixion?
Well there is in chapter nine of the book in his name. With this prophecy it was established that when the city itself was allow to be rebuilt under the order of Artaxerxes the king of Medo-Persian empire, which occurred over two hundred years after the time of Daniel.
This is one of the prophecies that tell there will be a Messiah and He will be killed, and that is what happened. To us it is now history, which is exactly what the Bible is, a history book of this earth and its relationship with and to God and God to this planet.
People need to start and study and I mean fully study history once again. For how years were managed within ancient cultures to who was who and when things took place in history. For if they did they would soon learn that Jesus is real, His Father is real and we are all answerable to our behavior and actions due to these facts. For they are facts not fiction as those that wish to live in sin wish it to be.
They write off God as a fantasy to legitimize their sins, when all they are doing is cutting themselves off from an eternity of splendor and wonder

The re-crucifixion of Jesus


Just so we all are on the same page. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, only went upon the cross once. He only died upon it once. He then arose from the dead after going into hell and not only preaching unto those there but took the keys of hell from Satan and then returned to this plain of existence for forty day to teach and be seen. He then ascended into heaven and is still there ALIVE.
This is not the Christ which many wish to accept and follow though. So they re-crucify their version of Jesus.
Their version of Jesus did not die for their sin, he is just someone to hide behind and use as an excuse to continue to sin. Instead of being the Holy Lamb who shed His Holy blood to wash away our sin and allow us to stand proudly before God in plain view of His Gaze for we have accepted His Son and we have repented of our sins, turning away from them and casting them aside. No longer desiring to do them for we know they are an insult to God to do them. But again this is not the Jesus they re-crucify, theirs is a scapegoat instead of a lamb. Theirs is an excuse to continue to allow them to live in sin, for deep down they know that it is not allowed before God yet they still try and parade before God proud they live in the sin. Snubbing their nose at God and saying He is nothing that is worth giving away their sin for. Unaware that what they accept is a lie. They say this part of the Bible is good, but this part of the Bible is bad, twisting and turning God’s holy word into a perversion, even more hideous then the very sin they wish to continue to live within. It is this perversion of the Gospel this re-crucifixion of Jesus that is the worst sin of all, which is why liars are seen as the worst of sinners.
Galatians 1: 8 – But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Any that do not teach the FULL and COMPLETE Word of God and tells you that it is ok to live in sin, is per the Bible to “be accursed.” I wish none to suffer the horrors that are promised those that are found wanting in the eyes of the Lord. I beg you, I plead with you, repent. Turn from your sin and turn to Jesus for only His one crucifixion was enough for us all.
Isaiah 66: 24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

The Cross
:11:03 p.m.
Timothy is elated the entire day, and Christa is right beside him. She spends the rest of the day talking to her family about the events that took place at the church, and about the reaction Tim received from the people and from the pastor. He had asked for a copy of Timothy’s book and inquired if Tim could return again, which the younger man said he would.
Now Tim and Christa lie in bed still excited by the events of the past day. Slowly though, they both fall into a deep sleep.
The sun is bright as Tim finds himself at the rear of a large crowd, upon a hill, outside an ancient city.
“This is Jerusalem,” comes the voice of Gabriel from beside him, “and these people are gathered here to watch the spectacle of death.”
“Whose death?” Tim asks.
“Three individuals shall die this day, but one you know very well,” the angel says as Tim’s head snaps up to look at him.
“Yes…. Jesus.”
As Timothy looks back toward the crowd, he finds himself at its center. Here he is ringed by Roman troops as they hold back the excited mob. An opening forms on the side facing the city, and there before him he sees the Christ leading a large group of soldiers and three men with crosses.
“Oh my…,” come the words slowly and then are lost as he looks at the Savior’s battered form. Blood, both new and dried, cover His face. Most of it comes from the thorny crown upon His head; but some, Tim notices, comes from His nose and mouth. His clothes are torn and tattered, while His bare feet are dirty and brownish red from the mixture of blood and dirt.
When the Lord reaches the center of the circle, He falls to His knees revealing to Tim the hideous wounds upon His back. Timothy looks at the shredded skin of the Savior’s back. He looks into the still open, bleeding wounds; and he believes he sees the white of the spine and ribs. Tim turns away as nausea starts to overwhelm him.
“No, don’t turn away. You will not become sick.”
“But I feel as though…,” Tim begins to protest to Gabriel’s request.
“Don’t fear. It will not overwhelm you.”
With these words Tim returns his gaze to the sight before him. There he sees a man place the large cross near an already dug hole, which appears well used for its ominous purpose. The man’s face, shoulder and hands are covered with the blood of Jesus; and Tim can see that the man cries as he is pushed away.
Timothy’s attention turns to some movement near him. There he sees two soldiers grab up Jesus and drag His weakened form over to the cross, removing His clothes as they do. They throw Him upon it, which causes Him to arch his back in agony. One of the troops slams his foot down upon the Lord as four others grab His hands. Two of them hold His hands down as the remaining two places large nails at the base of his hands and begins to hammer them into His body and then into the wood. Once this is done, they take His legs, leaving each one slightly bent, and proceed to hammer a nail into each of His ankles. When they finish, the soldier stepping upon His chest moves. As he does this, they attach a guide-rope to the top of the cross. Then five of the troops grab the top of it and begin to raise it. When the wood form is too high for the men to push up farther without difficulty, two long poles are brought into play on each end of the horizontal beam. They use these to push the cross into its upright position as it slams down into the hole made for it. Timothy looks at Jesus’ face as this sudden downward movement ends and sees the pain written clearly upon it. He watches as the Savior lifts His bloody and battered face.
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do,” Tim hears Jesus say. Tim looks at his guide.
“You hear the Lord’s words because this event is for all who follow Him in the past, the present, and the future and because He is God in human form,” Gabriel explains and then points back to the cross where the two see Jesus try to lift Himself to breathe. Tim looks on in anguish as he watches the nails in His feet begin to pour out more blood. He falls to his knees as he sees the torn flesh of the Lord’s back scraping against the rough wooden column. He looks on as large and small splinters are shoved into His already marred back.
Jesus’ head turns to His left, and Tim looks in that direction. He sees another cross there, and upon it is a man tied to it with ropes. Even though Tim does not hear the words, he knows the criminal is heckling the Lord, from his own point of death. He turns to see the other cross just behind and to the right of the Lord. He watches as the man there angrily speaks to the previous one.
“Truly I say to you, today you shall be with me in paradise,” Jesus says in an anguished way and then in pain relaxes His knees to send the pain shooting through His arms. Tim, unable to stand watching his Lord in so much agony, turns away for a moment.
When he returns his gaze to Jesus, he notices that it is growing darker. He looks up to see the cloud that must have moved in front of the sun and is shocked by what he sees. Above him throughout the sky he sees the ape-like creatures, like those from the battlefield, blocking out the blue sky. As hundreds, then thousands start to gather above the city, the light of day is soon blacked out as they watch with joy as Jesus suffers.
“My God,…my God,… why have you forsaken Me?” the Lord says in the light of the torches that have been lit.
Tim looks about him and sees that the crowd that was first there has dissipated. He can see a centurion and his troops, along with about twenty or so other people. Among them he sees three women and a young man holding one of the three, due to her weeping very deeply.
“Woman,” comes the pained voice of the Savior. “Behold your son!” The weeping woman looks toward Him and then turns to look at the young man holding her.
“Behold your mother!” Jesus spits out as his knees once again give way, sending s shudder of pain throughout his body. The young man hearing the words of Jesus, nods understanding that he is to care for Mary as if she were his own mother.
Tim, frozen in sorrow, cannot turn away any longer. He watches as the Lord raises Himself once again.
“I thirst,” the Savior says; and in response one of the guards shoves a liquid filled sponge into Jesus’ face. He turns His head away from the substance.
“Father,… it is done!” He shouts as His body clasps and becomes as limp as a marionette in a puppet show attached with strings to keep it up.
In shock Tim leaps from his bed and then falls to his knees as he begins to weep heavily. Christa, awakened by the abrupt action of her spouse, walks over to him and kneels down to hold him. She does not say a word as he buries his face into the side of her neck and engulfs her with his arms.
