Worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto HIM that sitteth on the throne and unto The LAMB+ for ever and ever. Amen.

" GOOD " WEDNESDAY
Great --- and Final --- Passover
CHRIST our Passover+
is sacrificed for us;
therefore, let us keep the feast.
not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven
of malice and wickedness;
but with the unleavened bread
of purity (Gk) and truth.
... on "Good"Wednesday
The LORD JESUS had sanctified the
Bread and the Cup as His+ Body and Blood for the disciples.
HE+ had taken the Cup --- perhaps,
His+ own Cup --- and passed it around at the Table, telling His+ disciples to
divide it among themselves.
His+ prayers in the Garden of
Gethsemane along with His+ first drops of blood, shed in agony, were finished.
The mockery of a trial by the
unrighteous authorities, both civilian and religious, had been endured, along
with the bruising dealt HIM+ by the goyim, the unclean.
Some more of His+ Blood was shed.
of thorns pierced His+ brow.
shedding of that Precious Blood.
Then the scourging, with leather
whips embedded with metal and sharp objects, was administered by the men of
war. At this point His+ Blood was flowing . The skin on His+ backside was in tatters.
Very likely His+ arms and legs felt the lash as well; the Romans were not known
to be gentle.
And HE+ had not come to the Cross yet.
Crucifixion would have taken place
( on our Wednesday ) at the hour of the morning
sacrifice in the Temple, the 3rd hour ... our 9 a.m.
As the LAMB+ of GOD, the LORD JESUS CHRIST fulfilled the entire pattern presented to Israel in the Temple
sacrifices, for they were precisely ordained of old for this reason exactly.
This Carpenter, this LAMB+ of GOD,
had likely carried many a beam of wood hewn from the forest. Likely HE+ had
walked many a mile in His+ 3.5 years of ministry. HE+ was hardy.
After His+ Agony, His+ bruisings,
His+ scourging, The LAMB+ was so depleted of blood, of His+ natural strength,
that HE+ could not carry the beam of His+ Cross and walk a mile. It would seem HE+ had super-natural strength,
though, or else medical shock would have set it.
Thus, they crucified the SON+ of
GOD. All the unclean... the unclean goyim...
the unclean religious leaders ... the unclean public who cried with insatiable
lust for blood:
" Crucify HIM+ ! "
" Crucify HIM+ ! "
showed mercy, had none given to HIM+.
Thus, at 9 a.m., mid-week, the day
before a High Holy Sabbath, they crucified our LORD JESUS CHRIST at the time of
the morning sacrifice in the Temple.
for they know not
what they do."
suppose The FATHER answered this prayer ?
At noon, the 6th hour, the world
went dark. It was a darkness which could be felt and NO... it was NOT an
eclipse. None had been recorded by the astronomers. Only darkness was recorded
as HE+ endured the agonies of the Cross.
The world is going to go dark
again soon as we prepare for His+ return to planet earth and this time, with aDIVINE
ROD of IRON.
The Agony of the Cross
Let's look at some of it. It is
written that every muscle in the body of a crucified victim locks into a muscle
spasm. We call them "a charlie horse."
Normally, it is only one
painful muscle which tightens and locks. Normally, it is over in minutes. HIS+
lasted hours, and there was no pulling out of them. It affected His+ entire
Then, at the 9th hour ... 3 p.m.
our time ... HE+ said,
" It is finished, FATHER;
into Thy Hands
I+ commend My+ Spirit."
As HE+ gave the sop to Judas at
the Table, the LORD JESUS gave permission to be crucified to the Unclean.
HE+ set in motion the final act to do His+ Heavenly FATHER'S will, a plan that
was agreed upon before the foundation of the earth, Revelation 13:8.
HE+ did the Will of The FATHER
to bring many sons to HIM.
As it is written:
For it became HIM, for Whom are all things, and by Whom are all things,
in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain+ of their Salvation perfect through sufferings. Hebrews 2:10 .
The count-down of three days and
three nights HE+ would spend in the heart of the earth began.
