Crucifixion of Christ

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). Matthew 27:46

Its important to note the time Jesus died, 3:00 p.m. is when the Passover Lambs were sacrificed yearly. God was demonstrating to the Jews that Jesus is The Lamb of God, the atoning sacrifice for all our sins.

With Jesus cries it obvious he suffered greatly on the cross, why would God allow that to happen? Because Jesus was paying the price for all our sins, he suffered and tasted death so we didn’t have to. It’s also notable that David prophesied this in Psalm 22

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. Matthew 27:50

In the book of Luke (23:46) it tells us Jesus said “Father into your hands I commit my Spirit”, this statement shows the obedience and love to lay down his life for others. In the book of John (19:30) it tells us he also said “It is Finished”, this was the final command that defeated death and Satan forever.

At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split Matthew 27:51

At that moment the “Veil was Torn” meaning God created his new covenant will all of us and he is now accessible for everyone. We are all the temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in us, the power of the Living God has been giving to us all

When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!” Matthew 27:54

After what they just witnessed, everyone including the Pharisees and Roman soldiers knew Jesus is The Son of God, Anyone who didn’t believe Jesus is Son of God was about to find out, God blackened the sky and created a huge earthquake that destroyed the temple and raised the dead from their graves. God displays his awesome power that he is the creator of The Heavens and Earth, he is in complete control, it is Finished in Jesus Name Amen
