hqdefaultFor I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jer. 29:11-13 (KJV)

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 1 John 3:16  When does a Child of God begin to place their life up against the Saviors and see how far we have to go to have the character, and endurance to go all the way to Calvary as we seek God’s Word and Spirit.

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV) tells us “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the WILL OF MY FATHER IN HEAVEN….” As we look at the world we live in, it is vital to our salvation that the focal point of our life is always on Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

And then we must go back 2000 YEARS and ask ourselves what IMPACT Calvary should have on our lives as we travel imagesthis Journey Christ has placed us on. First we go to the Old Testament prophets before Christ, who like painters comes along and puts their own unique style on the canvas of the life of Christ.

One by one from Genesis to Malachi, they come, and through the power of God’s Spirit each creates their own unique style and touch on the canvas. Then as Christ is crucified we have the final stroke which brings us into the New Testament from Matthew to revelation which takes us from the birth, death and resurrection of Christ to His returned for the redeemed.

This picture must become personnel as we walk the Via Dolorosa road to Calvary as Christ is beat beyond recognition, simply to satisfy the Jewish leaders as the hired rabble screams out crucify!! Crucify!! With the thought of death being the end to this Traveling Preacher. Their wish is granted and death it is.

We now stand next to the centurion soldiers as the “earthquake and all that happens, terrifies(us), while exclaiming, with no reservations “He is the Son of God!” as the revelation to mankind IS FINISHED! And Satan’s fate is sealed. But my friends Christ Lives and if you seek life eternal he should also live in your heart. imgresPaul”s statement in Romans 5:7-9 says it all

“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” So now we go back to the cross and look into the eyes of Christ right before His last breath as he also looks into our hearts.

He  knows 2000 years from now the events at Calvary will have no effect on some lives if they never seek My presence, and a personal relationship with My Word as they allow their lives to be transformed by my Spirit.

A certain medieval Minister announced at church he would be preaching this Sabbath evening right before sundown on “The Love of God.” and what that love meant to the world and too his congregation. That evening as the shadows fell and the light ceased to come in through the church windows, the minister had the congregation to gather around the darkness of the pulpit. The preacher then lighted a candle and carried it to the backdrop of a large picture of the crucifixion of Christ. First, he illumined the crown of thorns on Christ head, next on His pierced hands and feet, then the mark of the spear wound in His side. Then a hush fell on the congregation, he blew out the candle and walked out of the church, the sermon was over because there was nothing else to be said. And there should be nothing else for us to say either except OH LORD “NOT MY WILL BUT THY WILL BE DONE”


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
