Victory Week Friday

By now probably the only sleep the disciples captured in the past 24 hours was the sleep they fell into after the Passover meal. Its when in the garden Jesus asked them to keep watch, to pray as he was seeking the Father and ask is there any other way, yet not my will but yours Father would flow from his heart. The weight of the world’s sin is starting to climb on to his shoulders and back and He sought comfort from the Father, yet knowing that this road, this path, this way would be the only way to fulfill and provide the WAY for the world to unite with God. 

During the night a host of mock trials, accusations, physical, verbal abuse would be hurled to and through Jesus. By this time the rooster has crowed.  Peter and the rest of the gang have done what hours earlier they said they would never do. they have run to a place out of sight and out of harms way, as they fled for their lives. Im sure the series of events has rattled them to the core, where for 3 years following a man who they thought would change lives, overrule governments, maybe now what and how you thought that would look is being turned upside down like the tables Jesus turned over just a few days ago. What is happening? The weight of the worlds sin is climbing in. 

Yet lives are changing, hearts are bursting. Judas, yes the one who led the mob to Jesus, can no longer stand the weight of his betrayal is trying desperately to rid himself of the guilt. so he hurls the coins he received from the temple leaders back into the Temple, he no longer wants the pain of the betrayal and later hangs himself. Oh only if he would have remembered the words from the ONE he lived with for those years. If he only could recall that Jesus desired for everyone who was weak and weary to come to him, for his yoke was easy fitting. Only to allow Jesus to carry the weight. 

the morning starts fast. (in Remembrance of HIM, set your alarms to sound at the times given below and read the sequence of events that jesus walked through to carry the weight of the worlds sin) 

06:00 am to 08:00 am Jesus has gone back and forth between pilate and herod to receive the ruling of death. Pilate trying to relief his weight of burden from his part, washes his hands, a symbol to tell the world the blood of this man is on your hands…not knowing not believing not understanding that Jesus blood would cleanse his hands forever. 

9:00 am (the 3rd hour) nails are driven into the wrists (hands) and feet of Jesus, the weight of the worlds sin is pinned with him to the cross. (mark 15:35) As He is hoisted up and the beam comes crashing into place the weight of the worlds sin too is set in place. The spotless lamb of God utters words for all to hear. “forgive them father for they do not know what they are doing” those words ring loud and true even today. 

10:00 am One would think or believe that the actual nailing of a man to a tree would be punishment enough, not for this bunch as people passed by insults continued to hurled at Jesus. The religious leaders of the day scoffing that he could save others, why not himself? Even one of the two criminals that flanked his sides would bark out flesh tearing statements. 

11:00 am the other criminal rebuking the other and asking Jesus to remember him when his kingdom was in place. Jesus replies with the comfort of the Father, today yes you will be with me in paradise. Ah the weight of the criminal sin fulfilled in beLIeVING (Luke 23)

12:00 6th hour darkness covers the land for three hours (mark 15:33)

13:00 (1:00 pm) Jesus cries out Mat 27:46 NLT 46 At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, [“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?”] which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”

14:00 (2:00 pm) Luke 23:46 NLT 46 Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” And with those words he breathed his last.








What is finished? what is finished? im sure many whispered and wondered as the words  flowed from our Saviors heart over his vocal chords! What does he mean? 

means the weight, the wages, of the world’s sin is now fulfilled yes including yours, mine, our grandkids, their grandkids… PAID IN FULL. Once for all time! Our acceptance our righteousness is based on beLIeVING Jesus Christ blood covers all and fulfills the words John the Baptist spoke….Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29) the weight is GONE! carry it no more friends. 

By 6 p.m. Friday eveningNicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea, took Jesus’ body down from the cross and lay it in a tomb.

stay tuned more good news to come!
