Passover Lamb #GoodFriday

The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

If there is any question how Judaism and Christianity are linked together, look no further than Passover/Easter. When the prophet John the Baptist announced, Jesus was the “Lamb of God” everyone knew what he was talking about.

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Exodus 12:13

To understand what Jesus has done for us at the cross, we need to understand what happened at Passover. The Israelites were being held slaves for over 400 years until God sent the prophet Moses to finally free them. Egypt’s refusal to allow Gods people go, left him no choice but to send 10 deadly plaques to call for their repentance.

The final plague was the Angel of Death that would “Passover” any home that was covered by the blood of the sacrificial “Lamb of God”

for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:28

Fast forward to when God sent his only begotten Son, as the perfect “Lamb of God’ to forever take away the sins of the world. Anyone who is covered by the “Blood of Christ” death will “Passover” them and we will live eternally in Gods Kingdom.

Remember this Passover/Easter, that Jesus is The Lamb of God. Because of him death will Passover you during the Resurrection in Jesus Name Amen

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, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

Is there anything that can separate you from God? For God has chosen us to be his children (John 15:16), and even when we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) and he loved us enough to sacrifice his only begotten Son (John 3:16)

So even though we didn’t deserve his grace and mercy, God gave it to us anyway, why because he loves us. So what could separate us from our Heavenly Father? Sin (Isaiah 59:2) Sin is a rebellion against God (1 John 3:4) So when we knowingly and continually sin,  we are declaring war on God

However, because God loves us, he gave us the grace and mercy through the blood of Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sins. (John 3:16) The blood of the Lamb took our transgressions and made us white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)

Satan will continually try to separate you from God, through his traps of sin. (2 Timothy 2:26) However if we fix our eyes and mind on Christ (Hebrews 12:2), we can avoid his traps through Christ who gives us strength.  (Philippians 4:13)

Because the blood of Jesus Christ is more powerful than anything in the world (1 Peter 1:19), and has overcome the world,(John 16:33) we can’t be separated because of the power of Jesus Christ Amen

Good Friday – It Is Finished

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

The darkest day in the world has also become the most triumphant day for humanity. Jesus becoming the sacrifice for our sins. The Lamb that was slain by the world. Jesus never knew sin but was killed for our sins. This moment will change the world forever, and will give us life for eternity.

The evil that was demonstrated is incomprehensible from his own disciple Judas betrayal, to the rejection from his own Jewish people, and the brutal beating and murder carried out by the Romans.

(Luke 22:48) “But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?”

Judas sold The Son of God for 10 pieces of silver, this deceitful act will start the beginning of Jesus crucifixion.   Judas decided he loved money more than God. He later would regret his actions, but it was too late, the consequences are irreversible.

(Matthew 27:22) “”What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked. They all answered, “Crucify him!”

Jesus was sinless and he never committed a crime, but the Jewish people rejected him and demanded he be crucified. Jesus came not only to save us from our sins but to also teach the true doctrine of God. The high priests have become corrupted and followed there own traditions rather the true ways of our Lord.

(John 19:30) “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

“It is Finished” declared the Lord on the Cross. Nobody probably understood what he meant at the time, but he fulfilled all the prophecies of the coming Messiah and most importantly he saves us all from our sins.

This Good Friday let’s not forget to give thanks and remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us all.  By his blood we are redeemed, By his Stripes we are healed, in Jesus name Amen
