The Christ’s Crucifiction

I am grateful to say that i was brought up as a Christian. I am one of the lucky people who know the truth behind Jesus’s death on the cross who is jesus. There are people in this world who believe Jesus existed, but see him as just a prophet, who died to make a protest. This is not so. He died to take away our sin.

His ordeal began in Gethsemene, when he knew his hour had almost come and the human side of his personality was afraid of what lay ahead. I think the scene in Gethsemene, when he begged his Father to “take this cup away, ” is vital to the story of the passion. We know that he was God’s son, and so, had a divine nature. It is very easy therefore, to believe that he did not feel things the way we, as humans, do. If Our Lord had not panicked in the garden, when he sweat blood and called on his father to not make him go through with the suffering, he knew was coming to him, many Christians would have thought that, though his body was being broken, his spirit was far away, and at peace. The conflict between the two halves of his personality, also proves that he always knew what was going to happen. He could have avoided being caught, but instead, he surrendered to the soldiers.

We know that Jesus, throughout his ordeal, was lucid and alert. When they had nailed him to the cross and raised him up to die, his words, at first, were not about himself and the fix he was in. He asked God to forgive the people who had tortured and crucified him, he was also concerned about his mother, and he asked John to look after her. He promised the repentant thief that he would be with Jesus, that day in paradise. It was only later, that his thoughts turned to himself. God The father cannot be around sin. and Jesus had taken all the sins of the world on his shoulders, therefore, his father turned away from him while he hung on the cross. This is the most painful thing of all for us to think about. After all he had gone through, he did not even have his father to comfort him, but mercifully, that time came to an end and Jesus, after indicating that he was thirsty, gave up his spirit.

Crucifiction is a terrible death, invented by the Greeks and perfected by the Romans. I used to think that Jesus bled to death, but this is not so. The nails prevent the blood escaping to that much of an extent, as would the crown of thorns. On the cross, it is suffocation which causes death, as the chest can not expand to let air into the lungs. It is a slow, horrific death and it is widely believed that Jesus died from heart faliure, because of the blood and water which escaped from him when his side was pierced. The subject of Bible meditation and its powerful positive benefits, which largely has to do with the changing of our minds to God’s Will, ways and purpose, is of utmost importance if we are going to experience and live in the blessings of God. So let us now take a look in God’s Word, the Bible, and see who God says we are in Christ Jesus, what God says we are in Christ Jesus and what God says is ours in Christ Jesus.

There are so many Scriptures concerning these things but we will examine three of them along these lines and how to meditate upon them.

Meditation in the Word of God is vital to Christian growth and development. The word of God admonishes us to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 3: 18, King James Version of the Bible) To grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we must feed upon the word of God, getting an understanding of the Word and changing the way we think to line up with God’s Word, and then put it into practice in our daily lives. There is no other way.

God’s Holy Written Word, the Bible, is the greatest source of inspiration, motivation, information and truth that exist. It will give rest, peace, stability and refreshment to our weary souls and healing and health to our flesh if we read it daily and learn how to meditate in its precious promises. Yes, that is right, there is healing in the Word of God. (The Bible)

We should be feeding upon His Word, often. And through meditation we can feed upon His life-changing Word every moment of every day. You may not be able to read every moment of everyday. You have other things to do. You may not be able to study every moment. You may have other things to do. But you can meditate in His Word every moment of everyday, even while you do other things. If you can worry all the time (and you know that is possible), then you can meditate all the time, because worry is simply meditation upon fearful thoughts. Bible meditation is thinking based upon what God says, instead of what society says. God’s Word admonishes us to meditate in His Word day and night. That means meditate all the time.
