Rhon’s Easter Inspiration: Jesus Would Not Come Down
JESUS WOULD NOT COME DOWN
I received below from Faith Tabernacle, Inc. Official voice of R. G. Hardy Ministries
ALL CAN BE SAVED THIS EASTER
Therefore, there’s no valid reason why anybody should receive the wages of sin, eternal death. Death means separation not cessation or annihilation. Eternal spiritual death means to be eternally separated from God. No one has to incur this dreadful penalty, be cause all he has to do is receive the gift of God-eternal life: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever….” Red, yellow , black and white, young, old, male, female – I don’t care who you are:
“Whosoever believeth in him should not perish (be destroyed), but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:15-17).
Not everyone has received Him. “But to as many as received Him, to them gave power (the might and the right) to become his sons of God even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12). And that’s not all :
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him: for we shall see Him as He is (l Jn. 3:2). Paul told us in Phil. 3:21
“Who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working (the operation and the energizing of His mighty power) whereby He is able to subdue all things unto Himself.” I tell you, if you’ve got a problem in your life, if you are bound by additions, lusts, or anything, the power of the Lord Jesus Christ is able to subdue it and give you the victory!
THANK GOD, He wouldn’t come down from the cross. He stayed there and paid the price. Without the shedding of His blood, there is no remission, no pardon for our sins (Heb. 9:22). But He hung on that cross to fulfill the Scripture, because Jesus said “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up” (Jn. 3:14). They looked upon that brass serpent in faith and everyone that looked, was saved and healed. Jesus was lifted up on the cross, and everyone that will look on Him shall be saved. He said, “Look unto Me all ye the ends of the earth and be ye saved: for I am God and there is none else” (Isa. 45:22). And if you will look to the Savior , He will set you free. He will heal you.
When He knew all the Scriptures about Him were fulfilled, Jesus lifted up His eyes to the Father and said, “It is finished” (Jn.19:30). He was
thereby proclaiming: “The plan of salvation is complete, and the devil’s hold over mankind is broken. Sin’s hold over mankind is broken. The power of Satan is broken. They are free. I’ve set them free, and they are free indeed.”
When he knew all the Scriptures were fulfilled, then being the perfect Lamb, the holy Lamb, He said, “Father into Your hands I commend my spirit” (Lk. 23:46) He would not have presented a vile, dirty, desecrated, tainted offering to God. No, He was holy and righteous and good, and the only sin He knew was that he took our sins upon Him. He came along side of us when sin was crushing us down as a heavy burden, and He reached down and picked it up like Isaiah said:
“Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrow; yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our Inquities, He was chastised for our peace; and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all; And who shall declare His generation?” (Isa. 53:4-6,8)” I will tell you who. I’m going to declare it ! I’m going to lift Him up!
FROM THE CROSS TO THE THRONE
No, for your sake and my sake. HE WOULD NOT COME DOWN FROM THE CROSS, but He did come out of the grave! He wouldn’t come down from the cross, but He came out of the tomb, and He’s risen, He’s not in the tomb anymore, He’s high and lifted up. He’s exalted. He’s on the right hand of the Father, and He’s ever living to make intercession for you and me. He wouldn’t come down from the cross, thank God, but He fulfilled the Scriptures.
