NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH (Isaiah 65:17) (2 Peter 3:13) (Revelation 21:1).

This heaven and earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10).

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1).

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. [THEY SHALL PERISH, BUT THOU SHALT ENDURE]: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. [BUT THOU ART THE SAME, AND THY YEARS SHALL HAVE NO END]” (Psalm 102:25-27).

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:2).

Jesus was very clear when he told his disciples, saying: “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2-3).

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).

GOD be the GLORY and has given his ONLY begotten SON.

Every human being would be wise to ONLY WORSHIP GOD AND FOLLOW HIS ONLY BGOTTEN SON (John 3:16-18)!

“NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME; THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

The Apostle Paul explained of the only begotten Son JESUS: “Who is the [IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, [THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE: FOR BY HIM WERE ALL THINGS CREATED, THAT ARE IN HEAVEN, AND THAT ARE IN EARTH, VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE], whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: [AND HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND BY HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST]. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell” (Colossians 1:15-18).

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son” (Colossians 1:12-13).

“Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:28-29).

GOOD FRIDAY: JESUS’ VICTORY ON CALVARY (Luke 23:33)!

When Jesus was crucified along with two thieves, the prince of this world, the Devil or Satan thought that he won again, as he did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. However, little did he know that it was all part of God’s perfect plan, because when Jesus chose his twelve disciples, he said, “Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve” (John 6:70–71).

God first chose the people of Israel for his inheritance and then sent his Son Jesus to all others “to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Jesus” (Acts 26:18).

Jesus’ death and resurrection was purposed by God to let the inhabitants of the earth know of the reward of eternal life for humankind, which was hidden since the time of creation. As Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

The Devil believed that in putting Jesus to death, he would continue to have power over death. However, this was God’s plan to finally destroy death, with the promise of life through his only begotten Son. The word of God says:

“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8–9).

Jesus expressed this fact to his disciples when he told them saying: “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. [THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE I RECEIVED OF MY FATHER]” (John 10:17–18).

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), “who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. [AND BEING FOUND IN FASHION AS A MAN, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF, AND BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, EVEN THE DEATH OF THE CROSS]. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the [NAME OF JESUS] every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5–11).

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

GOOD FRIDAY: JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS.

Every day of our lives when we drink a glass of water especially when we are thirsty, let us be reminded how much our Lord Jesus sacrificed for us on that day.

On the day our Lord Jesus was crucified, it was a very hot day. As he suffered in the heat assuredly he needed a drink of water; however, “They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink” (Matthew 27:34).

“And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’ which is, being interpreted, ‘My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?’ And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, ‘Truly this man was the Son of God”’ (Mark 15:33-34. 38-39).

Jesus was crucified along with two thieves. It was customary after a crucifixion to break the legs; however, “when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs; but, one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water” (John 19:33–34).

“And he that saw it bare record and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe” (John 19:35).

This record of blood and water which came out of the pierced side of Jesus is significant as spoken of by John when he asked, saying:
“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:5–6).
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” (1 John 5:9–10).

GOOD FRIDAY: REPENTANCE

On the day that our Lord, Savior and King was crucified, he endured unimaginable things at the hands of the roman soldiers who mocked, scourge and spit on him (Mark 10:24).

“And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Prætorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!

And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him” (Mark 15:16-20).

Every human alive on today would be wise to come to REPENTANCE of sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior and King. The prophet Isaiah foretold of the day of Jesus’ crucifixion when he said:

“I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting” (Isaiah 50:6).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3). “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

How to repent?

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:8-10).

GOOD FRIDAY: REDEMPTION

We must take a moment of silence in prayer this Good Friday to acknowledge the magnitude of God’s love for humankind (John 1:1-4, 14, 3:16-18). It doesn’t matter who we are in this world, if we want to be freed from this earth on the Last Day to make it to the next world without an end in New Heavens and a New Earth (Isaiah 65:17-18) (John 3:16-18, 14:2–3) (Ephesians 3:9-12) (2 Peter 3:13) (Revelation 21:1-2), the word of God says:

“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).

“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth” (Isaiah 53:4-5,7).

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).
Jesus Christ Carrying Cross Up Calvary On Good Friday

GOOD FRIDAY – PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST.

Many people are going about their daily lives, unfortunately, not taking the time to consider the magnitude of what the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ did for the human race thousands of years ago.

Today, we bring into remembrance Good Friday. During today we must take a moment in silence to pray to God in truth and spirit to give him thanks for given us his only begotten Son, in order that we may inherit the promise of eternal life (John 3:16-18, 12:32).

No amount of money on this earth can purchase salvation (Matthew 1:29).

Lamb And Cross

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, but with the [PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST], as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 18–19).

GOOD FRIDAY.

Today is GOOD FRIDAY, and on this day we keep in remembrance the day JESUS CHRIST gave his life for the world.

At the beginning of time, God give light of life to the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. However, Adam and Eve did not believe the word of God: the truth; they believed instead a lie, and as a consequence all humans were condemned to death.
God gave life, but then came death. However, God then sent his only begotten Son Jesus, at the right time, in the fullness of time, to bring and to spread the word of life.

While he was here on earth, King Jesus told his disciples of this fact when he said, “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father” (John 10:17–18).
