We see next the response from the King in verse 40 forty. “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ There is His response to the questions of the righteous sheep who cared to share. Who were those in need? Who are the least of these my brethren? Least can indicate size, amount, dignity, authority, importance, and so forth. Here it may denote humility. Continue reading

Care to Share | Matthew 25: 34-46 Part 2 of 3

Care to Share Matt. 25: 34-46

Chow, cups and then notice these righteous sheep also shared their covering or housing with the King. Verse 35 thirty-five: “for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in... (emphasis mine). They cared to share their hospitality with the King. Taking care of the needy has always been on the heart of Almighty God. In response to the meaningless fasting of the rebellious Jews, through the prophet Isaiah, God asks, “Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh” (Is. 58: 6-7)?

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 4

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 4 of 4

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 4 We have been embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is the conclusion and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the final interrogative question of “why” was “it is finished”?

Are you slaving for God’s grace? Or are you serving Him from His grace?

VI) The sixth interrogative question is “why” was “it finished”?

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ was carried out to perfection concerning the salvation of mankind from their sin. Why was “it” finished, we ask?

It was finished for you and for me.

It was finished so that we might have hope for eternal life.

It was finished that we might receive forgiveness of sins. Continue reading

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 3 We are embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is part three and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the interrogative question of “what” was involved in “it is finished”?

Jesus came to make reconciliation between God and man possible: “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation” (Ro. 5: 6-11). It is finished!

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 2 of 4

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 2 We are embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is part two and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the interrogative question of "who was involved with the crucifixion of Christ?"

Jesus Christ: Both the Son of man and the Son of God. He was introduced by His cousin John as the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Jesus is also known as the Lamb Who was slain from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13: 8). There is a popular country song that has as one of its’ main refrain’s as “you were always on my mind” is referring to a love in his life.

Well, the cross was always on the mind of Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time, God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit had the plan of salvation laid out and secured for the salvation of mankind. Jesus just didn’t carry His cross up the hilly street of the Via Dolorosa, He had been carrying it since the beginning of the world!
