The reason why Jesus Christ was crucified on the Calvary cross

 

In order to prove the crucifixion of Jesus Christ I will use verses of the Bible in my sermon.

It is written that, the Satan and 1\3 of angels rebelled against God in heaven (it is written in the Bible – Isaiah 14 verses 11-14). God created people for His glory; Не settled them in the garden Eden and had fellowship with them (it is written in the Bible – Genesis 1:2; 2:8). 

One commandment was given by the Lord to men – not to eat the forbidden fruit (Genesis 2:15-17). 

With this command the men was given the right to make a choice whether they sin against God or not. The right to make choices is in men’s responsibility till this time.

 

When God gave men the right to make decisions on their own, by this act He showed, that He had created people not to be slaves but to be individuals.

 

Men have chosen sin (Genesis 3:1-8). When men knew sin as the result of that fear, shame and some other negative factors took place in their lives. Sin separated men from the Lord.

 

Because of men’s fall the land was cursed (Genesis 3: 17-19). Because of sin men rejected life in Eden and received what we have now: wars, sicknesses, fears, distractions, poverty, enmity, disrespect for parents and older people. Some sins are listed in Galatians 5:9-21.

 

Humanity didn’t have any relationships with the Lord and it led people to many terrible activities of Sodom and Gomorrah: homosexuality, lesbianism, adultery and so on. 

 

Sin increased more and more, and caused the first Lord’s judgments to come upon humanity:

1)   The flood (Genesis 6: 7-8)

2)   The fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19 : 24-25)

 

God gave 10 commandments to men in order to prevent them of killing each other (the Bible. Exodus 20:1-17)

 

I would like you to read attentively the verses 4 and 5:

 

"You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.” 

 

 

According to the rules of the law, if a man obeys these commandments he will be blessed, if a man does not obey, he will be cursed.

 

In times of the Old Testament before Jesus coming, sins of people were covered by the blood of a sacrificed lamb whish is an image of Jesus Christ. Because of constant sinning before God, sacrifices became just dead formalities.  Sacrifices could not change the sinful nature of men (the Bible – Isaiah 1: 11-18 and The Letter to Hebrews 7:19).

The law could not give the power to live without sin. There was a need for some other kind of sacrifice (neither gouts nor lambs). There was a real need for the holy sacrifice which would be able to change men’s heart (the Bible – the Letter to Galatians 4:4-8).

In the appointed time, the Heavenly Father  gave His only Son Jesus Christ as the holy sacrifice for our sins in order to take away sin and curse from our lives (the Bible – the Letter to Galatians 3:11-14; The first letter of Peter 1: 18-20).

The question may arise: If Jesus Christ really died for us and rose from the dead and we usually say: “Christ has risen! He has risen indeed!”[1] then why do so many terrible things happen to this world? If the Calvary sacrifice of Jesus Christ (the Bible – Gospel of Luke 22:40-71; Matthew 27:27) has real power and takes away our sins and curses why do bed things happen to this world?

The answer is simple

The sacrifice of Jesus Christ takes away our sins and curses when we receive Jesus as personal Savior in the prayer of repentance. This prayer must be from sincere heart (not just dead words or phrases). After this prayer we must stop living in sin.

How can I pray this prayer?

To pray this kind of prayer means to acknowledge my guilt and sin before God and to ask the Lord’s forgiveness and believe that my guilt and sin are washed by the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ.

Personally I prayed this prayer: “Oh Lord, forgive me all conscious and unconscious sins. I deny all evil things and sin that took place in my life. I deny you Satan. Jesus I believe that you have died for me on the Calvary and shed your holy blood.

Come into my heart, wash away my sins by your Blood and give me a new birth. (Gospel of Matthew 4:17; Gospel of John 3:3-6).

Give me the understanding of your Holy Word. Reveal Yourself to me and come into my heart. (Revelation 3:20-21). ”

What is going to happen when you prey to God? (Gospel of Matthew 3:8)

1.   Jesus Christ will resurrect your dead spirit; it means He will give you the power to live free from sin.

The Bible tells us in Romans 8:11: “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”

2.   After repentance the Holy Spirit step by step will reveal to you truths from the Bible  (Gospel of John 8:32 and 36).

I have lived 38 years without understanding the Bible. When I repented the Holy Spirit opened my understanding of the Bible. At this moment I am not only a director of Titanium factory but also a preacher at church.

3. When we constantly read the Word of God it sanctifies us. (Gospel of John 17:17; 1 Timothy 4:5).

4. When you constantly read the Word of God it helps you to pray (Romans 8:26-28)

5. And the main thing: The Holy Spirit and His Word give you power to live free from sin.

Jesus Christ has risen for our justification (Romans 4:25)

CHRIST HAS RISEN – HE HAS RISEN INDEED!

I wish you to say these words with real understanding in your heart. I wish you to see Jesus risen in your life and so that your whole family would be saved (Acts of Apostles 16:31 ).

I would like to answer all your questions concerning repentance and Jesus Christ.

I know God very personally who answers to prayers.

When I was 16 or 18 years old I was only 1 meter tall. When I was 22 I told God: “If you are real and alive, I want to be higher then 1, 5 meters”. I wanted this height because in Ukraine you can be taken to the army if you reached 1, 5 meters. In period from 22 to 26 God allowed me to grow to the height of 153 centimeters! I have photo and can send it to you if you want.

Christ has risen!

He has risen indeed!
