This is a season or a moment to behold in memory of our beloved LORD JESUS CHRIST, a memorable event that took place about 2000 ( two thousand) years ago that cannot be forgotten but ever remain fresh in our memory.
As for me it’s a moment that will forever linger on till the second coming of CHRIST in glory to rapture the ones seem fit for heaven and besides, the judgment of everyone who has little or less faith in Him.
Besides, the pain CHRIST JESUS went through was exceedingly harsh for the human criteria for pain. When we remember the pains, we should go through it with our minds fixed on the pains. The weeping (flogging) of CHRIST by Pilate’s soldiers created a ridge of scars on His back which we Christians soft call it “STRIPES” and by His stripes we are healed from every ailment and diseases. Also, CHRIST was worn a purple robe (violet) for mockery by Herod the great and by it, He took away our shame. A crown upon His head, a crown of thorns by which He gave us a clean thought towards GOD the Father for every evil one, for sins.
Therefore, it was weighty on His back and by it He took away every labour (burden) we have carried since man (Adam) disobeyed GOD. He stumbled and fell on His way to Golgotha by which our inconsistency in faith was taken away for more grace, as He is the author and finisher of our faith. Besides, nails were driven into His hands by which He gave us strength against afflictions, the sun fried His injured back and with that, we received a brighter light against the black tunnel. His knees were smashed with a sledge hammer and the nails that drove its way through His feet were for our feeble knees.
Therefore, His delicate body wedge against every arrow fired by our enemies, the moment the soldier drove its spear against the body, besides the blood and water that flowed from His sides was for the final cleansing of our iniquities and a covenant before GOD the Father. His death on the cross gave birth to a new beginning to us all who decides to follow Him.
By the way, He created a way for us all to the Father through Himself as an ancient path which we should not throw away, a set foot print on the sand for us all to follow. Brethren in faith, we have been with a platter, let us grab it with both hands from the Calvary.
