CROSS WORDS

HAPPY PALM SUNDAY


CROSSWORDS
"I Thirst"
FIRST LET ME BEGIN BY APOLOGIZING TO YOU FOR NOT HAVING A POST UP LAST WEEK SUNDAY OR THE WEEK BEFORE. I'VE BEEN INBOXED ON FACEBOOK BY A FEW OF YOU THAT DO WISH TO GET THESE MESSAGES EVERY SUNDAY AND LAST WEEK WAS JUST LAZINESS AND THE WEEK BEFORE I DIDN'T ATTEND CHURCH. SORRY.

JOHN 19:28-29 After this, Jesus knew that evrything had been done.  So that the Scripture would come true, he said "I am thirsty."  There was a jar full of vinegar there, so the soldiers soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a  branch of a hyssup plant and lifted it to Jesus' mouth.

3 REVELATIONS ABOUT HIS SUFFERING

1.  His suffering reveals a sympathetic Savior.

HEBREWS 4:15 We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality.  He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all--all but sin.  *Christ completely understands our struggles and our entire walk of life.

HEBREWS 4:16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.  There we will receive his mercy and we will find grace to help us when we need it.

2.  His suffering reveals a scriptural Savior.

MICAH 5:2  there was a promised ruler from Bethlehem 
DANIEL 9:25  
ISAIAH 7:14  the Messiah will be born of a virgin
PSALM 22:15-18 pierced hands and feet, cast bets for his clothing, none of his bones would be broken on the cross.
PSALM 69:21  gall put in his food and vinegar given in his thirst


THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF PROPHECIES THAT WERE ALL FULFILLED BY ONE MAN
(ABOUT 1,000 YEARS BEFORE HIS BIRTH)

3.  His suffering reveals a sufficient Savior

HEBREWS 5:8-9  But even though he was God's son, he learned through his sufferings to be obedient.  When he was made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for ALL those who obey him.

LUKE 16:24
REVELATION 7:16
REVELATION 22:17
JOHN 4:13-14

THE QUESTION IS HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO THIRST AND WILL THAT THIRST CARRY ON UNTIL THE NEXT LIFE?

THINK ABOUT IT!!!!
