Hello friends! :D The following Bible Treasure deals with the events that revolved around Jesus Christ's Death on the cross and some of their significance.

After reading through this Bible Treasure, you may learn many things you may not have known yet.
As you may know, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have written The Gospels Of Jesus Christ, testifying as eye witnesses and each of The Gospels have different details as seen by each of the gospel writers. We'll take a look at Matthews writing regarding The Death Of Jesus Christ, and I'll add other details from the other Gospel writers as we go :)

Matthew 27:15-56

15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
36 And sitting down they watched him there;
37 And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.
38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

BIBLE 7 TREASURE

When Jesus Christ was taken to Pilate, Pilate did not find fault In Him, for He Was Guiltless.
Pilate Attempted to Free Jesus, but he saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he then took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
This is an important point to considerate; Pilate thought that he could condemn Jesus, and wash his hands and be free of his guilt.

1 Peter 3:21

21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

External washing does not cover up internal corruption, even baptism on the outside is not a substitute for baptism on the inside, it's not enough to be washed in the water, we must be
washed in Jesus Christ's Blood.
Pilate later releases Barabbas wanting to gratify the crowd, even though Jesus isn't guilty. Pilate chooses to please the crowd instead of pleasing God.

We must always keep in mind that we are not in this world to follow men, or to please men, but to Follow and Please God, our Creator :)

Romans 12:1-2

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Thessalonians 2:4

4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.

Galatians 1:10

10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Pilate released Barabbas, and delivered Jesus to be scourged before having Him crucified.
Jesus switched places with Barabbas.

Barabbas was guilty of murder, he was a thief, he was a rebel.

Jesus switches places with us

You and i have been guilty of sin just like Barabbas was. It is because of our sins that Jesus Christ Died, therefore we are guilty just like Barabbas was.

We've all committed sin; Jesus Never Did.
Jesus took the punishment that should have been our own.
Very Good News for us! ^_____^

Did you know

Barabbas means, "Son Of The Father"?

Bar = Son Of
Abbas = The Father

You and I may become Sons Of The Father, because Jesus Switches places with us, just like he did with Barabbas.
Very Good News :D

1 John 3:1

3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

After Jesus Switched places with Barabbas, He was scourged, being whipped with a cat of nine tails.

A "cat o' nine tails" is a whip with nine metal pieces on each end of the whip that dig inside the flesh when struck and then rip the flesh apart when pulled back for another lashing.
Sometimes people wouldn't even survive this brutal torture.

It is no wonder Jesus Fell down while carrying the cross
(Keep in mind He went through all of this while carrying our sins In His Soul. A terrible torment we cannot even begin to imagine)

John 19:2-3

2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
The significance of the thorns

Thorns represent the curse of sin in the world. 

Genesis 3: 17-19

17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

There were no thorns in The Garden Of Eden before Adam and Eve committed sin.

The reason Jesus wore a crown of thorns is that He Was bearing the sins of the world; Both in His Flesh And In His Spirit.
(This was all destined to happen before the foundation of the world)

1 Peter 1:19-21

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

The cross was basically a rose bush, and Jesus Was The Flower. He bore the curse of our disobedience in our place.

After they whipped Jesus they took the scarlet robe off of Him, and then placed His robe back on Him. His Body was bleeding after being scourged, therefore the robe must have become Blood Stained.

Revelation 7:14

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

We must wash our robes in Jesus Christ's Blood to cover our sins. It is Jesus Christ's Blood that cleanses our robes.

Something i also find interesting is the numerical portion of the Above Bible Verse, which is 7:14 or 7: 7 7 (14)

John 19:23-25

23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

The Robe of Jesus Christ represents His Righteousness.
Being without seam represented His Perfection
(The seam is where you have a beginning and an end. This brings to my mind The Alpha and The Omega; The Beginning and The End)

For a more thorough study on The Seamless Robe Of Jesus Christ click here:
(This will take you to a different website which contains a nice study on this subject)

Jesus was later taken to Golgotha, which means, "The Place Of The Skull"
Click below to see photographs that show you why this site is called, 
"The Place Of The Skull" 
^____^ 
Jesus was then given vinegar mingled with gall, which He Refused to drink.

Matthew 27:33-35

33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.


Did you know

Psalm 69 Predicted This A Thousand years earlier

Psalm 69:19-21

19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

I believe the vinegar mixed with gall was given to Jesus as a temptation of the devil. The reason i believe this is because Jesus Knew that after drinking vinegar, His Work Of Salvation would be, "Finished" 
However, Jesus Had Not Yet Been Crucified, therefore it wasn't time for Him to drink vinegar. 
His mission was not over yet, and He Also wouldn't take anything that would numb His Pain and Communion With God The Father (Vinegar and gall would be given in order to numb the pain) 
Jesus gives us here an incredible display of Courage, Endurance, Obedience and many more things that are beyond my comprehension. 
At this point the pain that Jesus Had Felt would have killed all of us. Jesus Was Carrying The Sins Of The World, Had Been Brutally scourged, And Was Feeling The Pain of those around Him, as well as His Own.
Truly Jesus Christ Is King Of Kings!!!

His other garments are divided 4 ways by gambling.
The only material possession that we know of, that Jesus left behind of His Life is His clothing.

He Left Behind His Word and His Clothing (His Righteousness)

Why were His clothes divided 4 ways?

In The Holy Bible, the number 4 represents that which is universal.

Mark 13:26-27

26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

His Angels will gather the elect from the 4 corners of the earth; North, South, East and West.
The 4 corners of the compass.

His Righteousness was to go into all the world. To the 4 corners of the compass.
This is why His Clothes were divided 4 ways.
His Precious Blood shared to every nation, every man of every tongue.

Matthew 24:14

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Now i'll share something interesting with you, before we move on :)

Elijah's Mantle and Elisha

1 Kings 19:19-21

19 So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.
20 And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?
21 And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.

2 Kings 2:11-15

11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;
14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
15 And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

The Above Bible Verse ended with Elisha receiving a Double portion of God's Holy Spirit That was in Elijah.

Elisha parts the waters of the Jordan river after picking up Elijah's Robe
(After receiving a Double Portion of God's Holy Spirit, That Was In Elijah)
This is similar to Moses dividing the waters of the Red Sea as Commanded By God.
(I also find interesting the fact that every painting of Moses dividing The Red Sea, portrays him wearing a red robe)
Do a google search! :)

Jesus Christ Left behind His Blood Stained Robe.

That robe is still available for you, there is no need to gamble to get it, just ask! :D
I myself ask for God's Holy Spirit daily, and I have been receiving it ^_____^
i haven't tried parting waters but i have been getting some Pretty Amazing Gifts Through God's Free Gift Of The Holy Spirit :D
Luke 11:13

13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Moving on :)

We have discussed the gambling that took place over Jesus Christ's Clothing, but...

Did you know

Psalm 22 predicted the gambling of Jesus Christ's clothes and the way in Which He Died, a thousand years before Jesus was born?

Psalm 22

22 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
8 He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
19 But be not thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
23 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor among the nations.
29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

Psalm 22 is one of the most concrete proofs of Jesus Christ's Divinity As The Son Of God.
Written a Thousand Years before Jesus Christ's Death, Also before death by crucifixion was invented!
There's more information I'll share with you regarding Psalm 22
(Although you may have already noticed it :D)
Keep reading! :)

The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm the thousand year age gap between Psalm 22 written by King David and Jesus Christ's Death.

For more information on The Dead Sea Scrolls, please see,

Who could have ever predicted all of this?

How could a person ever predict the fact that after being murdered in a way which does not even exist yet (Crucifixion) people would gamble over His clothes?

Jesus Christ Is The Son Of God! ^____^

Another thing I've overlooked in the past is the fact that while this was all going on, Jesus Christ's Mother, Mary, was watching her First-born Son being murdered.

We know about God's Omnipotence and Omniscience, but...

Did you know

God Is Also Omnipathic; meaning God feels everything that every single one of His Created beings feel.

God Feels for every single creature on earth.

I know without any doubt that Both Jesus Christ And God The Father were feeling Mary's pain as well as the physical, mental, and spiritual agony that Jesus Christ Was Feeling.
I am 100% sure that God The Father Felt Everything That Jesus Christ Did While Going through all of this.
This is also True today, God Feels everything we feel every single second of our lives.

Let's now take a look at the thieves who died with Jesus 

Luke 23:39-44

39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

The thieves that Jesus Died in between represent 2 classes of people in this world.
They were both guilty. They could do nothing to save themselves.

One said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

the other said, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

Mark 9:23

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

John 11:23-27

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

The difference between both of them was Faith.
One had Faith

The other had doubt

Fun Fact!

The above picture is of Nik Wallenda, the man who crossed the Little Grand Canyon on a tightrope while mentioning Jesus Christ's Name with each step!

(This stunt was done by a professional, do not try this at home! Remember we are not to tempt The Lord)

Daredevil Nik Wallenda has a wife, three children, and he's been training for one moment his entire life:
To tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon without any safety net or harness. Making it across means life, falling means death.
The National Park Service would never allow a stunt like this over the Grand Canyon — so Wallenda had to settle for the "little Grand Canyon" over the gorge of the Colorado River near Cameron, Arizona, on tribal lands of the Navajo Nation.
Wallenda's grandfather died before viewers' eyes on live television trying to do a similar, harness-free walk.
"Thank you Jesus," Wallenda kept repeating with each step. "You're my king, you're my protector, you're my shield, you're my strength, you're my lord." He battled high winds and balanced with a 45 pound bar on the 2-inch wire. He reached the half-way point on the wire at the 11:30 minute mark.
The quarter-mile walk at 1,500 feet in the air took more than 20 minutes — in winds ranging from a safe 18 mph to a more treacherous 30 mph. Wallenda knelt twice to wait out the stronger wind.

(It's also interesting to note that Nik is the seventh generation of the legendary Great Wallendas and began walking the wire at age 4.This caught my attention due to the fact that 7 is God's number and Nik served as a testimony of Jesus on national television, which is a very rare thing in these times we're living in)

If you have doubt today, do not be afraid! Jesus Christ Loves you! And He Died For you! Just talk to Him in Prayer!  
Jesus Has Said that if you knock, it shall be answered!


Matthew 7:7-8

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Do not Doubt, Have Faith! :D

The cross was also a form or metaphor for...

The Tree Of Life.

The man on the cross who believed in Jesus, became one of the first visible fruits of Jesus Christ's Work Of Salvation.

That man's eternal destiny changed that day, when he said yes to Jesus 
Your eternal destiny can change today if you say yes to Jesus 

Absolutely free!

Now I'll share something else with you, which is a mystery that God's Word Solves for us :)
This will also explain Jesus Christ's Statement to the thief who believed

Luke 23:42-43

42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

What is death?

According to The Holy Bible death is nothing more than a nap.

John 11:11-14

11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

What happens when you take a nap?

Your conscious mind is at rest, asleep, meaning that you are unconscious for a set amount of time until you wake up.
The subconscious mind might project images in the form of dreams, but this is due to the fact that your heart is still beating, therefore, the brain is still working.
When someone dies, their heart stops beating, as a result the brain stops functioning. In this state we would not have dreams.

What happens when you take a nap without any dreams?

You become unconscious and then your next conscious thought is the moment in which you wake up. When this happens you don't really feel the amount of time that has passed while you were asleep, because you were unconscious.

The Holy Bible (The Word Of God) Tells us that the dead are asleep (Nap time) awaiting judgement, which would of course be the dead's next conscious thought. This happens during the resurrection of the dead, also called by some, "Judgement Day."

Hebrews 9:27

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

2 Corinthians 5:10

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Death is nothing more than a nap without dreams. The resurrection is the moment in which we wake up (No track of the amount of time that has passed) but still aware that we were asleep... but wait.

There IS A PROMISE! :D

John 11:25-27

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

(If you doubt The Lord Jesus Christ, i invite you to read, "Can We Trust The Lord?" if you do not doubt Him, i also invite you to read it :D)

With the above Promise in mind, we know that As Long As We Believe In Jesus Christ, we shall not taste death! Meaning, we won't even be aware that we died, it will all happen in the twinkling of an eye!!!

1 Corinthians 15:52

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Just like the thieves each had a choice to make, so do we!
We all have 2 choices we are constantly faced with.
Doing Good, or doing evil.

Let's make the right choice! :D

Matthew 27:46

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Some have wondered, Did Jesus Lose Faith?

The answer is no, Jesus Did not lose Faith at this point. 

Jesus Was Quoting Psalm 22 which starts with, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

Something very interesting is the fact that Every Passover the priest would read from the psalms. Jesus Christ As our High Priest reads from the Psalm 22 for those who have ears to listen :D

Any of the Jews who knew Psalm 22 should have had a revelation at this point and realized that Jesus Christ Is The Son Of God.

They were seeing fulfilled in their very sight the essence of Psalm 22

The dogs have emcompassed me
i can count all my bones
they pierced my hands and feet.
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Jesus Christ's Exclamation could also be seen as a rhetorical question, inviting us to think about it.

Why Have You Forsaken Me?

God The Father Withdrew His Protection Momentarily so that you and i can have eternal life through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood

The next statement on the cross was, "I Thirst"

John 19:28

28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

Jesus was bleeding profusely from the brutal beatings.

Psalm 22:14

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

Bleeding causes dehydration, Jesus was parched, longing for some moisture.
He Had also been bearing the sins of the world and was Thirsty for Righteousness.

Jesus Was Drained of Righteousness that you and i might be supplied

Jesus Christ Is The Living Water

Here He Is Thirsty and can't get anything to drink.
He Is The Living Water and He Is Thirsty because he is offering it all to us.

Jesus Christ poured Himself out for us

Right after Jesus Said, "I Thirst" one of the soldiers ran and gave Him vinegar to drink

John 19:29

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

Did you know

Psalm 69 Also Predicted This A Thousand years earlier

Psalm 69:19-21

19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

After drinking the vinegar Jesus Said, "It Is Finished"

John 19:30

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Jesus then says,“It is finished.” Found only in the Gospel of John, the Greek word translated “It Is Finished” is Tetelestai, an accounting term that means “Paid In Full.”

When Jesus uttered those words, He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever. Not that Jesus wiped away any debt that He owed to the Father; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by mankindthe debt of sin.

When Jesus Christ Shouted from His final words at the cross, It Is Finished; you might also rightly say, not only is it complete, it is Paid In Full, The penalty for sin is paid in full! :D

Very good news! ^____^

The Final Statement before He expires. The seventh statement. Jesus Shouts, "Father, Into Your Hands, I commend My Spirit!"

Luke 23:46

46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

This could be evidence that Jesus Christ Did not die from the crucifixion, but by choice.

As a person is nearing death, their voice gets weaker and weaker, their breathing more and more shallow, it's almost impossible to hear them speak, because they're too weak to say anything, but He Gains a lung full of air and He Shouts With a Loud Voice, "Father Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit"

Jesus Christ's First recorded words are, "I Must Be About My Father's Business"
From the time Jesus first speaks, until His Last Words on the cross, "Father Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit" Jesus Lived for The Father.
Doing The Father's Will Should also Be The center of our lives.

After having said His Last Words, "Father Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit" He Breathed His Last.
The next Bible Verse could also be evidence that Jesus Christ Did not die from the crucifixion, but by choice.

John 10:17-18

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
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.

John 19:34

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Soldiers went and told Pilate that Jesus Was Dead. It was hard for Pilate to believe that Jesus Was Dead already.

Dying on a cross would take longer and so they used to break the legs of the crucified men so they would be in even more agonizing pain and also unable to raise themselves up to gather air to accelerate the death process.

The soldiers then wanted to make sure Jesus was dead, and so one of the soldiers pierced His Side with a lance and blood and water came out.

2 clear distinct flows

There's a condition when the blood and water would separate in the pericardium, This happens when a heart is broken.

There is a membrane that surrounds the heart called the pericardial sac. When a heart ruptures, blood leaks from the heart and fills the pericardial sac and while it sits blood will separate from the plasma. Jesus did not die of asphyxiation, but of a broken heart when He took the sins and sickness of the entire world on Him.

This is how much Jesus loves us, to willingly take on so much sin and pain that it literally breaks His heart.

This is the nature and love of Jesus Christ. He has literally sacrificed His body and heart that we might have life with Him for eternity.

Isaiah 53:4-5

4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Psalm 22:14

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

Jesus Christ Died of a broken heart, He Died by choice, like Jacob gathered his feet up in the bed and died. He chose to lay down his life for you and me.
Imagine all of the pain and agony that is in the world.
That was all placed on Him, justifying us through this selfless act of love that we might be conquerors over everything that caused Him to die of a broken heart. This is how much He loves us.

John 10:17-18

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
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.

Feast Of Tabernacles

During The Feast Of Tabernacles, there was a celebration where the high priest would go to the Kidron valley and he would get some of the Water from the Kidron valley and he would go up to the alter in the temple, and he would take some New Wine and he would take the Water, and he would pour them out together as an offering and there was a flow of water and grape juice that he would pour out on the altar.

This represents the cleansing that you and i receive.

Baptism: The Water Cleansing.
Outward Cleansing: Justification

And

The Cleansing In The Blood: Through The Blood Of Jesus Christ.
Inward Cleansing: Sanctification

This is what Jesus provided through His Life, the power for us to be cleansed.

The Life is in The Blood
It is The Life Of Jesus Christ that cleanses us. 

Mark 15:37-39

37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

One of the reasons the temple broke this way, is because we are now The Temple Of God, becoming Blessed Recipients Of God's Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

The Church is no longer a physical temple, instead, Jesus Christ's Followers are The Church, making part of Jesus Christ's Body :D

Many people today understand the church as a building. This is not a biblical understanding of the church. The word “church” comes from the Greek word ekklesia which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones.”
The root meaning of “church” is not that of a building, but of people.

Romans 16:5

5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

Paul refers to the church in their house, not a church building, but a body of believers.
The church is the body of Jesus Christ, of which He is the head.

Ephesians 1:22-23

22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

The centurion which stood over against Jesus saw the earth quaked, the dark sky, The temple breaking in half and all of nature recoil because its Creator had been rejected and when the centurion saw this he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Do you know That Jesus Christ Is Truly The Son Of God?

Are you ready to take up your cross and follow Jesus ?

If you are, then you will Abide With Jesus Christ In Paradise, In His Father's Kingdom!
(Please remember that it is impossible to represent Paradise Visually or in any other way. All i can say is that we'll be very very very pleasantly shocked! and in very very very extreme amounts of pleasure)

See you there, friend! :D
I'm not missing Paradise for the world either! :)

Praise The Lord Jesus Christ!!!
King Of Kings For Eternal Life!!!
Glory To You my Lord Jesus Christ!
