Said Jesus in John 10:18 “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.: I have power to lay it down, I have power to take it again.” it was Christ Choice to die. And so, when He felt the time was right, He gave up the Ghost!


ROADBUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!!! Since the Beginning this was Christ Destiny When the words were repeated in Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” HE KNEW THE JOURNEY FOR HIM WOULD NOT END, UNTIL HE SAID, “IT IS FINISHED”

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!!! Four thousands years later, John 1:11-14 tells us He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” A Babe in Bethlehem WHEN HE FIRST STARTED HIS JOURNEY FOR US. then 33 years later.

Thru the Jordan Trail “Down the Vía Dolorosa called the way of suffering like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, came the Messiah, Christ the King, But He chose to walk that road out of His love for you and me. Once it was Christ time HIS JOURNEY moves rapidly (1) The Last Supper (2)  The Garden of Gethsemane as Christ spends His last Hours praying to His Father, then Jesus is Betrayed and Arrested.

(3) The Religious Leaders Condemn Jesus (4)  6 am Jesus Stands Trial Before Pilate, He is then Sent to Herod. (5) 7 am Jesus Returned to Pilate, Jesus is Sentenced to Deathimages (6)  8 a.m. Jesus is Led Away to Calvary (7)  9 a.m.”The Third Hour” Jesus is Crucified on the Cross. The sequence of events That leads to the Death of our perfect Savior, Dying in A imperfect world.

HIS JOURNEY had many experiences, some good, some bad, But He never gave up He REMAINED FOCUSED ON HIS JOURNEY, as His life was continually threatened, unjustly tried and rejected as the Son of God Mark 14:61:64 tells us the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?”

“I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven…….. “You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?” They all condemned him as worthy of death..” His mission is now belittled to that of A out of touch, Crazy street preacher, BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.

Slapped, brutalized, beaten, spit upon BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES! Crowds looking on, rabble rousers are shouting, women weeping, hecklers mocking, soldiers harassing, His disciples abandon Him, “The principalities and powers of darkness were assembled around the cross, casting the hellish shadow of unbelief into the hearts of men,

in leading the people to believe Christ the chief of sinners, and to make Him the object of detestation. Those who mocked Christ as He hung upon the cross were imbued with the spirit of the first great rebel. He filled them with vile and loathsome speeches. He inspired their taunts. But by all this he gained nothing.” BECAUSE HE CONTINUED THIS JOURNEY FOR US (E.G. White Desire of ages pp. 760-761)

imagesNailed to A cruel cross Mark tells us in Mark 15:31-32 “In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.”

It was the third hour when they crucified him,” that is, 9 o’clock. When “the sixth hour had come” (12 noon), darkness covered the whole earth, reflecting the betrayal at 12 midnight. After three hours of darkness, at 3 p.m., Jesus cried out IT IS FINISHED and gave up the ghost. ” BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!

His Last Breath, caused a drastic change in Nature. IT IS FINISHED caused the Light of the Sun to Go Out: the Sun was Darkened. IT IS FINISHED caused the Earth to go into Convulsions: the Rocks were torn apart; the Hill called Calvary Shook. IT IS FINISHED tore the Veil of the Temple BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.

Two days later on A Sunday morning THE SON OF MAN RISES AGAIN AS THE JOURNEY CONTINUES! IT CONTINUES BECAUSE THIS JOURNEY, WE THE imagesADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD NOW CONTINUE THROUGH CHRIST John 15:20 tells us “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’

If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.” My friends, HIS FAITH, FOCUS, HUMILITY, GRACE, MERCY, LOVE, POWER, HOLINESS, ENDURANCE AND SPIRIT We all have obtained through Calvary if we believe.

2Peter 1:3 tells us “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” Paul also tells us in 1Cor. 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” My friends Matt 24 let’s us know THIS JOURNEY WILL END SOON


Revelation 22:11-14 warns us. “Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. My friends PLEASE GIVE IT ALL TO THE MASTER TODAY, HE HAS TRAVELED THIS JOURNEY, HE CAN GUIDE YOU TO HIS PURE AND HOLY KINGDOM.

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