" GOOD " WEDNESDAY







HOLY WEEK
in commemoration of
The 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.

1 Corinthians 5:7,8
.
  .
The Crucifixion

... 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.

.

The crown of thorns pierced His+ brow.

.

More 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+ ! "
  .
HE+ Who+ 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.

.

His+ words recorded were:

.
" FATHER,
forgive them,
for they know not
what they do."
..
Do we 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 a DIVINE 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 body.

.

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.

.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT:
.
Night one
in the heart
of the earth.
+ + +
.
Worthy is the LAMB+
that was slain
from the foundation 
of the world.
