For the next 60 seconds, put aside everything you are doing and take advantage of this opportunity.
Don’t let Satan stop you.
At 33, Jesus was sentenced to death.
At the time of the Crucifixion, it was the “worst” death.
Only the worst criminals were sentenced to be crucified. However, it was even more terrible for Jesus, unlike other criminals sentenced to death by crucifixion, Jesus was supported on the Cross with his hands and feet.
Each nail: it was between 6 and 8 inches long.
The nails were embedded in his wrist,
Not in the palms of the hands as it is commonly represented
There is a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. Roman guards knew it
that, when the nails were inserted into the wrist, the tendon tore and broke,
forcing Jesus to use his ribs to support himself so he can breathe.
His two feet were pushed together, that’s how he was forced to do it
leaning on the only nail that tied the feet to the cross.
Jesus could not lean on his legs because of the pain.
Then he was forced to alternate between the arch of his back
He only used his legs to continue his
breathe, imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage he endured.
Jesus endured that reality for more than 3 hours.
Yes, more than 3 hours!
Can you imagine this kind of
I suffering? A few minutes before dying, Jesus stopped bleeding, only water came out of his wounds.
From the common images we see wounds on the hands and feet and even the wound of the spear at his side …
But we realize that his wounds were actually practiced all over his body by a hammer that brought her great sufferings through the wrist, the feet overlap and an even large nail hammered through the arches, therefore a Roman guard who pierces his flank With a spear But, before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and since the straps were so serious as to break her
Flesh of his body, the horrible beat that he received on his face that ripped the beard off his face.
The crown of thorns embedded deep in the scalp. Most of the men
He would not have survived this torture.
He no longer had blood
To bleed, water only gushed from his wounds
The adult human body contains approximately 4.5 liters (just over a gallon) of blood.
Jesus shed all 4.5 liters of his blood; had three nails inserted into his
limbs; a crown of thorns on his head and, moreover, a Roman soldier pierced his chest with a spear.
All this without mentioning the humiliation he suffered after bringing the
Cross for almost 2 km, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross weighed almost 30 kg,
Only for its highest part, where were his hands.
Jesus had to endure this experience, to open the Gates of heaven, so as to have freedom and
Access to God
So that your sins
They can be “washed” and taken away. Everyone, without exception!
Don’t ignore this reading.
Jesus, Christ died for you!
He died for you! It is easy to publish many silly photos via email or on social media, but
When it comes to God, you are sometimes ashamed to talk about Jesus.
For others! why do you care what they might think of you?
God has plans for you, show all your friends what Jesus felt.
God bless you!
He said (Matthew 10:32 and 33): “Therefore, I will also recognize all those who recognize me before the others.
In front of my father in paradise; but whoever denies me before the others, I will deny it in front of my father in heaven “.
Recognize Jesus as the only savior! The Bible says: “The word is next to you, in your mouth and in your heart; this is the word of faith, to be preached, that is: If with your mouth you confess the Lord Jesus, and in your heart you believe that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved Jesus said that I am the way of truth and life and nobody comes to the father except me.
