Easter. Part-Three.

Good Friday.

Jesus was arrested by the mob in the garden, then he was passed back and forth until Pilate was ensnared to kill him. Pilate did everything that was in his means to get Jesus released, because he knew he was an innocent man being set up by envious and jealous religious hypocrites.  Matthew 26:57-27:14,  Mark 15:1-15,  Luke 22:63-23:12,  John 18:19-19:16.

Jesus was flogged and mocked and then forced to carry his stake to the place of Crucifixion  outside of Jerusalem. Looking back as believers in the death and resurrection of Jesus, by faith we know why this all had to happen in the way that was the plan of the Father.  Matthew 27:15-56,  Mark 15:16-41,  Luke 23:13-49,  John 19:17-37.

What will you do this Easter season? Will join in the mockers club, will you continue in your religion, without really believing or will you come to change your attitudes and not look back?  Amos 5:4,  John 6:29,  Romans 10:9.

Easter. Part-Two.

Betrayal and Failure.

Jesus was betrayed by one of His own and at the end of the day, they all ran way and denied they were connected to Him. Judas did it for money and the ideal that he believed would cause the events to bring on the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel. Peter boasted he would follow to the end, but denied Him three times. Luke 22:47-48,  John 18:12-18,  25-27.

Jesus had warned them all before hand that they would fail Him.  Matthew 26:20-25,  Mark 14:27-31.

What are we doing today as believers? Bragging about who and what we are or are we just pushing on in silence?  Isaiah 53:7,  John 19:9.

We all fail it is part of our natural Sinful nature, but if we are born anew of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We will endure, persevere on for His Glory and not our own.  Philippians 1:28.
