The love of God on the cross


 

Very probably you have heard about the love of God. Very few people understand the love of God on the cross. The true story about the love of God on the cross is the solution for you who are not in Jesus and those who are in Jesus. When you see in a new and Biblical way the love God on the cross it shall change you forever.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. The righteousness of God is a free gift from the mercy of God by faith of the Lord Jesus. When a man repents his sins, confess his sins and believe that Jesus is the Lord, so he gets the salvation and righteousness as the gift. The God has set the Lord Jesus as the Mercy Seat through faith in the blood of Jesus, in which God declares His righteousness. The greatness of the redemption and the salvation is the obedience of Jesus and fulfilling of God's will, the blood of Jesus, the death and resurrection of Jesus. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Messiah, the Lord Jesus.

Jesus is God's fulfillment of the love

The Old Covenant was an example, which fulfilled in the Lord Jesus. In the ark of the covenant were the law (10 Commandments), the golden manna pot and Aaron’s rod that budded. The Mercy Seat was the cover of the ark of the covenant and God spoke to Moses above the Mercy Seat.

The law of God was under the Mercy Seat. This means that in the era of the New Covenant the grace of God in the Lord Jesus brings about the word as living, that the truth shall set free from sins and iniquities and teach believers to grow in faith in the Holy Spirit.

The golden manna pot in the ark of the covenant describes how God in the New Covenant takes care His nation earthly needs.

Aaron's rod that budded describes in the New Covenant, how the grace of God in the Lord Jesus teach us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts and sins and teach us to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.

Aaron's rod that budded was a miracle, because dead tree, wooden stick turn greenish. The dead tree got marks of the life, the new life replaced the death. In the same way in the New Covenant a man who has died in his sins and has caused the fruit of sin and death shall see a miracle by faith in the Lord Jesus, because God creates new things in the heart of a believer. By the Holy Spirit a believer shall have the new life, in which from the grace of God a believer produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit when he lives in the truth of God's word.

The Mercy Seat as the example in the Old Covenant means that in the New Covenant all things happen through the Lord Jesus, by the obedience of Jesus for the sake of the blood, death and resurrection of Jesus. The Gospel is not the message about the dead body of Jesus, but the death of Jesus for remission of sins and that Jesus rose from the dead, because His tomb is empty and Jesus lives. Therefore, Jesus can forgive your sins if you believe in Him, because Jesus lives and sits on the right side of the Father God.

At the time of the Old Covenant the High Priest went once a year to the Most Holy, in which he sprinkled the blood of the sin offering above the mercy seat as the remission of sins. The Lord Jesus is the High Priest of the New Covenant and therefore the blood must run above His body, that we can have forgiveness of sins by faith in the Lord Jesus. The Lord Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Covenant mercy seat, because the Lord Jesus is the Mercy Seat of God.

The Salvation Call of the love

God wants to save you if you don't believe in the Lord Jesus. If you are without faith and salvation in the Lord Jesus, so you are walking to eternal damnation for the sake of your own choice and your sins, because the blood of Jesus hasn't cleansed your sins.

The Bible says that God reconciled those people by the Lord Jesus who believe in Jesus and for them God gave the ministry of reconciliation, which means preaching and telling of the Gospel to godless and sinful people. The Bible says that God was in Jesus when Jesus reconciled sin on the cross.

The Bible says: I (God) have heard you in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored you: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

If you don't believe in the Lord Jesus, so today God calls you to receive the salvation, because God wants to forgive your sins if you confess and repent your sins and believe that Jesus is the Lord and the Messiah and the Saviour.

The love of God is magnificent, because He thinks all the time things that are the best for us and He continuously actively is working the best things for us. The love of God is unselfish and self-sacrificing, because He doesn't think Himself, but you and me. When God says don't do sinful things, so God doesn't say it for selfish motives, but because sin destroys you and me. God thinks us all the time and is working for us, because He loves us.

Open up your heart to the love of God

If you are in the Lord Jesus and saved from the grace of God, so Jesus wants to renew your love to God. If you are in the Lord Jesus and saved from the grace of God, so Jesus wants to renew your love to God. God wants to open into our heart the love of God on the cross.

The crucifixion was the most utmost agonizing and painful way of execution, in which a man died slowly and painfully the choking death. Those people who were crucified have to hold up themselves with their hands and feet and when a power was ended, they died a painful choking death.

The Lord Jesus was sinless and righteous and He was crucified on the cross for the sake of our sins. Crucified ones got myrrh and wine, which was anesthetic of that time meant to ease pains of crucified ones.

The Lord Jesus didn't drink wine mixed with myrrh. The Lord Jesus suffered the full penalty of sins on the cross and He didn't ease His condition on the cross, but suffered in His body horrible pains of the death.

When the Lord Jesus shouted on the cross: It is finished, it meant the shout of the victory, which soldiers at that time shouted when they returned home as victors from the war. It is finished was a winner's shout of joy and rejoice.

The message of the cross is very powerful and touching, because Jesus didn't concentrate His pains and suffering on the cross, but in the midst of horrible pain and suffering Jesus rejoiced that people can obtain the remission of sins by His redemption and atonement. The love of Jesus on the cross was unselfish and self-sacrificing, because He took our place on the cross, that we could receive the salvation by faith in the Lord Jesus.

The message of the cross in the Lord Jesus breaks my heart. When we believe in the Lord Jesus and in the Holy Spirit sees Jesus on the cross, so it should break our heart and impact deeper love towards God. The love of God worked by the Holy Spirit deepen our love towards God.

One God and His love

God of the Bible is one God, in the Father, in the Lord Jesus and in the Holy Spirit. Jesus is not the Father, however, Jesus is God, because only God can bring about eternal redemption, because Jesus entered by His blood once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Amen, praise to the Lord and praised be His love by the Lord Jesus, amen, praise to the God.
