For the next 150 seconds, set aside whatever you’re doing and take this opportunity! Let’s see if Satan can stop this.
THE SCIENTIFIC DEATH OF JESUS
At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.
At the time crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified… Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.
Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.
The nails were driven into His wrist, not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There is a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.
Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus, He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.
Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.
Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds…
From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side. But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body? A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even a large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.
He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 litres (just less than a gallon) of blood.
Jesus poured all 3.5 litres of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His body; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest.
All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometres, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones. The cross was almost 30 kg of weight.
Jesus had to endure this experience so that you can have free access to God.
So that your sins could be “washed” away. All of them with no exception!
JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU AND ME!
For you, who now read this blog. Do not believe that He died only for some – those who go to church or for pastors, bishops, etc.
The reality, the truth is that JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.
God has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced to save you. Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life.
Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him
“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”.
WHEN GOD TAKES SOMETHING FROM YOUR GRASP, HE’S NOT PUNISHING YOU, BUT MERELY OPENING YOUR HANDS TO RECEIVE SOMETHING BETTER. TO GET SOMETHING YOU NEVER HAD…
