In our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan for today we FINALLY have the answer to exactly WHO was responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth! In His own words, in John 10:17-18:
JESUS put JESUS on the cross! He said THIS about THAT in Matthew 26:52-54:
JESUS could have, at ANY time, taken Himself right off of that cross and walked away! HALLELUJAH that He did not! Thank YOU, JESUS! So, contrary to any range of beliefs, it was NOT the Romans, the Jews, or even my sin, but HIS desire to free me, and you, of the bondage and future condemnation for that sin! HE chose this, for the JOY that was set before Him (Hebrews 12:2)! That JOY has a name, and that name is YOURS and MINE and WHOSOEVER will! AMEN! So, with THIS promise also in mind from John 10:10 ....
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
... let's PRAISE Him with Psalm 150, also from today's Bible Reading Plan!
Are you breathing? Then PRAISE HIM! AMEN! Here is Hillsong Worship with "What A Beautiful Name":
Shalom in Him!
