This Week's Sermon: ( 8-4-15 )

I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. “   Isaiah 50:6

 

It is amazing that God would subject Himself to such as this.

 

God, who became flesh, blood and bone, a human, chose to go through this for you and me.

 

God in the flesh, named Jesus, said He could have backed out of this at the last minute.

 

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? “  Matthew 26:53-54

 

Jesus would have been justified in backing out, since He is God.

 

A Roman legion was 6,000 soldiers.

 

Jesus could of had 72,000 angels come to His rescue.

 

In the Old Testament there was a day when God sent one angel, who killed multiple thousands of enemies.

If one angel could kill thousands just think what 72,000 angels could do.

 

Jesus knew why He came to earth in human flesh.

 

He chose to go through with the reason He came here...and that was to save you and me.

 

If we would just believe in Jesus, we will spend eternity in Heaven.

 

If we do not believe in Jesus, we will spend eternity in hell...according to Jesus.

 

My wife died, believing in Jesus.

 

According to Jesus, she is in Heaven.

 

I cannot explain it but I know in my heart she is with Jesus in Heaven.

 

Before you die, give your heart to Jesus and believe He is literally the only way to Heaven, as He claimed to be...not one of many ways.
