This Must Be The Lamb…..

 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb     Gen 22:8 KJV

 For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood (of the Lamb) on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you.      Ex 12 :23 NKJV

And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! John 1:36 KJV

 He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:  Acts 8:32 KJV

 Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. And this was no afterthought. Even though it has only lately—at the end of the ages—become public knowledge, God always knew he was going to do this for you. It’s because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God. 1 Peter 1:18 – 20 The Message

 

This must be the Lamb – Jesus was betrayed, humiliated, mocked, beaten brutally, forced to march threw the streets while carrying the very cross they would nail Him to. He suffered the nails and taunts and the separation from those He loved here and from the Father. The crowd was worked up and screaming. The soldiers fierceness was unrestrained. The wind blew hard as the clouds closed in. The sky grew dark as hope was fleeing.

A final word… softly spoken… would let us know…. the fight was won –

IT IS FINISHED.  John 19:30 KJV

It’s been said that Jesus was beaten so badly that day that He was unrecognizable. That the soldiers hit him so many times and removed sections of His face with  fistful of his beard. The mocking crown He wore poured blood that hid His face. Lastly, with the light of the sun hidden by the ominous clouds being blown around it would have been nearly impossible to see His face regardless of the beatings.

But, if … you close your eyes… and really try…

and think of that day… so long ago… you might be able…

to turn up the lights… wipe away the blood…

 and look into the face of Love!

HE DIED FOR ME AND FOR YOU THAT’S WHAT LOVE CAN DO
