All are invited to the Cross
To the place where God and humanity meet. But remember the Cross is not the soul’s rescuing power…the power is in the ONE who bore its shame…your shame.
Jesus poured out Himself to death. He would reap the unspeakable reward of seeing limitless numbers of once helpless, hell-bound sinners die with Him in Faith, only to be raised to walk in newness of life, in Heaven for Eternity.
The invitation of God’s Grace and Mercy comes to you only through His Son… from a person who lived and died for you. A person still alive today who will be your advocate and claim you as His own when you stand before the Judgment Seat …saving you from Eternal Death in Hell.
Jesus had to face His Cross alone. His father, who cannot look upon Sin had to turn away, while His Son suffered for the past, present and future Sins of all humankind.
But you will not have to carry your Cross alone. Jesus has promised to carry it for you. The storms of life will rage around you, but Jesus promised to be with you, lead you and give you His peace in this life. When Jesus says He will keep you safe, He means it. HELL will have to get through HIM to get to you! When He says He will get you home…He WILL get you home!
Your eternal future begins at the foot of His Cross. His story must become your story. His journey must be your journey. Don’t go through this life alone, take His outstretched hand.
Isaiah 52:13-15, the Cross through Jewish eyes:
Behold, My Servant (Messiah Yeshua/Jesus), will prosper.
He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.
Just as many were astonished at you, My people (the nation of Israel),
So His (the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus) appearance was marred more than any man
And His (the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus) form (His body) more than the Sons of men.
Thus He (the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus) will sprinkle (His Blood) over many nations (cleansing the sins of many peoples, both Jew and Gentile of their sins).
Kings will shut their mouths on account of Him…for what had not been told them they will see, and what they had not heard they will understand (at His 2nd Coming!!!).
Here in Isaiah, centuries before Christ was born, we see God’s wondrous plan—to provide a Savior who will lead us out of darkness and into the radiant dawn of eternal life!
Watch Israel…watch for a 7 year peace treaty between the Arab world and the Nation of Israel; created by the 1st Coming of the False Messiah…then watch the Eastern Sky, for the 2nd Coming of JESUS the TRUE MESSIAH in the clouds!
Wishing you His Shalom (Peace), and Joy in your journey. www.crosseseverywhere.com
