are in this message was sent to you I see some sequencing from Phoenix Arizona other resources like this visit us online at www. USC led him to believe me that was we spent a long day how are y'all doing phrase alone what a wonderful experience that is to be here at UNC I've been to many of you and every single one has been a huge blessing to my own spiritual walk with the Lord before we begin our study together this evening we do want to ask the Lord special blessing and so I invite you reverently to bow your heads with me as we pray my father and our God your people are gathered here in this holy place to open your holy book pleading for the help of the Holy Spirit to help us understand the message that you have for us we ask father that you will manifest your power in this place that Christ might be seen in all of his glory and we might be inspired to follow in his footsteps we thank you father for the privilege of approaching your throne boldly and we do so because we come in the powerful and precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ you may and are starting this evening I would like us to focus on the last three words that Jesus spoke to his father when he was on the cross of Calvary those three words that Jesus spoke were the following my God my God why have you forsaken me words are found in Matthew twenty seven in verse forty six the second say that I would like us to focus on is very short sound in John chapter nineteen in verse thirty four Jesus cried out it is finished in the third word of Christ that I would like to focus on is the last thing Jesus spoke from the cross the words father into your hands I commend my spirit those words are found in Luke twenty three and verse forty six but before we focus on these three words of Jesus from the cross at the end of his life we need a little bit of background on things that happened immediately before they got to understand what happened before we need to comprehend something about the Old Testament sanctuary service when individual sand in Israel they would bring on animal to the court of the sanctuary they would place their hands upon the head of that animal whether it be a lamb or a blog or another type of animal and it would confess their sin on the set of an animal just thus transferring their conspiracy and from themselves to the animal in other words this was transferred you will while it was alive the animal bore the sin of the center while the animal was alive and then the animal of course was slain it significant that the sale was placed on the fact of the animal the head is where our brain hence it's worth thinking reasoning and clearly occurrence not want to visit the events that took place immediately before the cross sometimes we think that the cross tells the whole story but the events that led up to the cross are just as important as Jesus hang in the cross of Pelham so let's visit the Garden of Gethsemane when we think about Jesus bearing the sins of the world we usually think of Jesus on the cross but actually the sins of the world were placed upon Jesus not at the cross but in the Garden of Gethsemane I'd like us to turn in our Bibles to Matthew chapter twenty six and verse thirty eight Matthew twenty six in verse thirty eight where Jesus is about to begin his passion in the garden and he pronounced these words of anguish Matthew twenty six verse thirty eight then he said to them be speaking to his disciples my soul is exceedingly sorrowful even to death stay here watch with me not is that in this verse we have a connection between sorrow and death Jesus said my soul is exceedingly sorrowful even unto death and it spiraled and is going to lead ultimately to you now in hard times we usually look for support from our prints but Jesus filed none the less he came to say would silently crying out crucifying him motorcycles whom Jesus begged and prayed for him in the garden went to sleep Judas whom Jesus called his friend betrayed below Peter West denied Jesus and the last time that he denied Jesus he didn't using vulgar language in the garden the disciples were awfully and that's the reason why we're told in Isaiah sixty three and verse three that Jesus Trevor winepress alone and none were with him in the seventh volume of the Bible commentary page nine thirty four Ellen White explains about Jesus he died outside the camp where felons and murderers were executed their feet trod the winepress alone bearing the penalty that should have fallen on the center featuring the winepress alone and none was with you know so for Morgan and RSS Jesus on the cross it seemed like even his father is looking because he cried out my God my God why have you forsaken me so he didn't even feel the support of his own father let's follow Jesus now a little closer into the Matthew chapter twenty six speaks of a cop that Jesus was going to drink three times Jesus uttered a prayer of anguish to his father I'd like to read those verses the first one is verse thirty nine of Matthew twenty six would call there he went a little further and fell on his face and prayed saying all my father you can just hear the passion is what my father affect me possible let this cup pass from me nevertheless not as I will but as you then were told in verse forty two that Jesus prayed the same prayer again it says there again a second time he went away and prayed saying whole life father if this cup cannot pass away from me unless I drink and not as in the drink while within the cup your will be done they were told in verse forty four so he left them went away again and prayed the third time saying the same words three times Jesus cried out in anguish to his father to take away the cup if it were possible and of course the question is what was in the cop that was so difficult the work comp that is use their is the same one in Revelation sixteen in verse nineteen where we are called the family will bring the wine of the fierceness of God from someone was able to come up with the wine of God 's wrath and the question is who gave Jesus met up with the wine John eighteen eleven has the answer John eighteen in verse eleven tells us this is when Peter about its origin the leader of the servant saw Jesus said to Peter put your sorry intimacy shall I not drink the cop which my father has the cup was given to him by his own father to drink the wine of the wrath of the best driver called in Isaiah fifty three in verse six all we like sheep have gone astray we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has laid on him the ignorant him us all the Aguilar the father laid on him the iniquity of us all that's why Jesus suffered such anguish that's why Jesus felt separated from his father desire may designate seven hundred and fifty three we find these words Satan with his fierce temptations wrong the heart of Jesus the Savior could not see through the portals of the two Hall did not present to him he is coming forth from the grave as a conqueror or tell him of his father 's acceptance of the sacrifice he feared that sand was soft offensive to God that their separation was the I know a well-known is this Christ felt the anguish that the center will be when Mercy Selma longer plead for the QB race he felt like most will feel after my daughter probation is closed and are on say LMI continues saying it was the sense of sin bringing up father 's arrest upon him as man sounds good to that name the company drank some and broke the heart of the some of the book of Hebrews young people describes the English of Christ chapter five verse seven of the book of Hebrews we find this description of the anguish of Jesus in Gethsemane were told their cool in the days of his flesh when he had offered up listen to the words now when he offered up prayers and supplications with the human eyes and tears to him who was able to save him from death and was heard because of his Bobby feared not just the words tires supplications cries and tears that he uttered to his father saw terrible with his anguish in Gethsemane as the sins of the world were placed upon him were told in Luke twenty two in verse forty four the Jesus sweated great drops of blood it says there and being in agony he prayed more earnestly then his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground how many of you are seen anybody so filled with anguish that instead of sweating sweat this one perhaps many of you have seen the movie that was produced by Mel Gibson passion of Christ you know the big emphasis there besides the emphasis upon Mary because really it's a movie about Mary is not really a movie about Christ if you look at the subliminal message but if you look at that movie the emphasis falls upon the severe beatings that Jesus received but do you know that Jesus would have died in the garden even before anyone laid a finger upon him were told in a document that don't quite know the Bible training school for September first nineteen fifty human nature what an fair and I undergo all of the sense of sin not angel from heaven strengthening him to bear the agony human nature whereby Jesus did not die this will dangers us die because the pressure on singer cracks in he would've died in the garden before anyone even talked to if it had not been for an angel coming down to strengthen notes take a look at the last three declarations and crafts that Jesus uttered to his father John eight in verse twenty nine were told something about the relationship between Jesus and his father here Jesus makes any sense and he who sent me is with me the father has not left me alone for I always do those things that please the father has not left me alone Jesus said during his ministry Matthew twenty seven verse forty sixth ST him across the sins have been placed upon him in the Garden of Gethsemane he has drunk the cup of God 's wrath the cries out in anguish from across my God my God why have you forsaken me what Jesus 's select the messages volume one page three hundred and twenty one Ellen White explains Elizabeth this unit we can't fully understand how Jesus felt you know we we feel the tremendous amount of guilt just our own sins but Jesus was buried the guilt of the sins of the whole world upon his conscience that's why the Senate was placed in recalled Marinette statement from selected messages volume one page three twenty one the deal of every sand pressed its way upon the divine soul of the world Redeemer the evil thoughts for evil words the evil deeds of her son and daughter of Adam called for retribution upon himself how many seems once again the evil thoughts of evil words the evil deeds of every son and daughter of Adam call for retribution upon himself for he had become man's substitute you sent on man's place to take the place of every single human being to continue same goal the guilt of sin was not his his spirit was born and rules by the transformations of men then he will send became sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in him you want to know what the thing was is like the prophet Isaiah describes it as a fifty three versus four through six we find these words surely he has borne our wreaths and carried our sorrows yet we esteemed him stricken smitten by God and afflicted but he was wounded for our transgressions he was bruised for our iniquities that chastisement for our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are you all we like sheep have gone astray we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has laid on him the unique would keep us all why Jesus cried him across my God my God why have you forsaken me as because of all our sins plus the things that have ever been committed that were placed upon Jesus Christ in the car in which he bore the cross now we know what he crying out my God why have you forsaken no we need to look at the next declaration to his father in the cross it is finished I went to read John chapter nineteen in verse thirty so when Jesus had received the sour wine you sent in such an bowing his head he gave up his spirit no question as to who was Jesus uttering those words which is set and is finished the whole was he speaking and what had he finished we need to answer those questions first of all we know that Jesus was addressing the father the Spirit of prophecy makes it absolutely clear that Jesus was saying to his father father and finish the question is was finished effective this Jesus came to Missouri for several reasons but there are two principal reasons the first reason is that the law of God requires absolute sinless perfection I like best receiving corps here can offer the law what the law requires if you set I can operate with your first name becomes your ally the Bible says that all have sinned and come short of the glory but there is none righteous no not one we are all sinners we can offer below the perfect and verbal recording so Jesus came to this world to live the life that the law requires all of us to take the lead of in our place he came to leave overall of perfect righteousness they are part of the law in our place he did but he had to do something else to see you also had to take care of the problem of sin and so Jesus develop 's perfect character in harmony with the law and while a robe of righteousness Jesus took upon himself all our sins and he died on the cross for those who he is for us and he died for us he will and our place and he died in our place and Jesus listening to his father father is in Barisal for all available without iodine for the sins of the whole world the plan of salvation has met with success you know there's this big discussion the nebulous theology as to whether the salvation was finished across the fact is that if you read the writings of Ellen White youth you would seem to bases and US when it comes some places he says that Jesus went ahead and finish his work understatement to say that he finished up across the fact is that the cross Jesus finished appropriation or salvation there was a perfect life and a bad precedent about what you can do is work applying involves to also improve the repentance and confession and faith in Christ and what he's missing the dolomite says designer may just make a thirty four but when Jesus ascended to heaven and met with his father he said to his father I have completed the work of redemption don't misunderstand he had completed the provision for redemption but now individuals must claim what Jesus did personally his life and his death as our own so when Jesus on the cross in and said she was influenced on he was saying far there is no upper life edit everyone can claim as their own and then we find the last declaration of Christ on the cross Luke twenty three verse forty six says and when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice he sent high into your hands I commit my spirit having said this he breathed his last it is interesting Jesus felt forsaken by his father he had set my God my God why have you forsaken me but notice that when he dies he does not die with him up bit.ly the second possibility sent my God my God why you forsaken me this is the same hand image of the same father he says father in your hands I commend my spirit what did Jesus mean when he said I commend my spirit you know we usually think of the Spirit just as the breath but you know the statement is the breath along with with the identity of the person it is the breath along with their personal identity in other words with their character see when we die God keeps a record of artillery to give us when we was right such as Los Angeles mother father preserve my spirit my character in your record because he promised that if I was successful you want to resurrect the servant of the Lord in the book Marilyn Atha page three hundred and one has this remarkable statement the little old lady understood she says our personal identity is preserved in the resurrection will not send particles of matter or material substance is went into the gray the wondrous works of God are a mystery command and I listen carefully the spirit of man is a return to God there to preserve what is it that's preserved Omega brand no Woods preserve is your personal identity your character cool you were doing a lot in Michigan and just saying in the resurrection man lives on character is saying father who promised that if I was successful you will go to give my mice into your head I commend my spirit Jesus felt forsaken by his father but he knew that he was not forsaken using how can Jesus feel forsake him him at least once a hollow design Illinois explains it in a beautiful way in the Bible September fifteen eighteen ninety two she says but when in his expiring agonies this air trust upon the soul of the Redeemer he relied upon the process that had hitherto invented up to this point had been given him of his fathers accepted and he and Ashley Fielding of this practice life by a long he rested him him it had been his joy moving he knew his father from previous experience she got to disable all was enshrouded with home yet home in the awful darkness which was felt even by sympathizing nature the Redeemer drained the mysterious cup ranks will he realize this but dimly that he shall try not to recognize even he would try the cries with a loud voice into the hands I commend my spirit he is according to with the character is he understands his distance his mercy and his great love he knew his father from previous experience he separated from his father but he will that his father was not separated from the retesting him from previous experience she continuously and in submission he commends himself to go amid the convulsions of nature the amazed spectators care of the dying words of the Son of Man in eggs and Jean him charisma he did not allow things to discourage him he was tempted to a lobbyist and to pay the way in which he found that Galloway said that the devil pressed upon his mind that if you went through with this human beings would not be same because John God 's justice when that make it possible and that he would lose himself forever and yet Jesus did not be panned upon his feelings and his thoughts anymore emotions he depended on the promises of Islam because he knew his father from personal experience Jesus rested in the two very early the first day of the week to angel descended from one remove the stone notice and before that to and with a loud voice at all house I called the dealer was the connection in your hands I commend my spirit gauge of themselves as I father calls the Ellen White describes it then the angel from heaven with a loud voice that caused the out now thy father calls the far Jesus came for his father fulfilled his others this question will resurrected Jesus was at the father was of the angel was that Jesus himself around the original statement male white and then I'm going to read a passage from John chapter ten seven fantasy Bible commentary volume five page one one fourteen Ellen White had this to say about Jesus he who died for the sins of the world was to remain in the home the allotted time it was in its felony prison house as a number of divine justice he was responsible to the judge of the universe he was bearing the sins of the world and his father could release he was a prisoner of divine justice on the other pervasive like you said father dear I recommend this make sure you call as you promise Elizabeth is it seem to indicate that Christ resurrected himself but it's really careful John chapter ten versus seventeen and eighteen John chapter ten versus seventeen and eighteen here Jesus is speaking he says therefore my father loves me because I lay down my life that I may take it up again the Jesus to get on the list continue reading no one takes it from me but I found myself have power or powers that are translated authority is the Greek word Excellency is not doing a mix I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it up again why this is the verse six and I have received from my father is the biblical basis for the common people as a prisoner divine justice and he relied on the promises of what the father that he learned to live that he knew my personal experience and his father was what does all this have to say to Smith will learn this nice place I'm in a real nice room I enjoy my you and I enjoy my cell phone my iPhone the newest one all the gadgets and all the bases on the conveniences you know what all of this is very soon going to come crashing in we are going to go through the same experience as he's listened to this remarkable statement found in the review and Herald April fourteen eighty ninety six we are going over the same ground as Jesus there Ellen White explains the forces of darkness will unite with human agencies who have given themselves in the control of Satan endless sea network set up trial rejects and crucifixion of Christ will be revived did you catch that sea surface scenes that were exhibited a trial rejected a prospective price will be leave a reply little yielding to satanic influences man will be transformed into beings the word he means an evil spirit or a demon or a very wicked are cruel person and she continuously and balls were created in the image of God who were formed to glorify their Creator will become the habitation of dragons and site and will see in the state race is a piece of able men will reflect his own image for life savings Jesus died him close Satan is going to try and convince God 's people that their sins are two great pity for you ever read the chapter on the time from that they will never see God 's reconciling place like sites that I thought people think about their home industry but that's will enable safe father we know from personal experience it but we fail you accept that you will never see your face we trust here since you think the people in the loser following up with you we won't be able to trust their emotions or feelings human friendships family ties material possessions are even half of the presence of the God 's people will have no human support it will appear that they don't even have the support of people come not because of what a free on what they think but because they know God and they trust in his promises like job which is a typological book it really is a book that describes this time of trouble that God 's people about the light job but people will say always in yet will I trust in him I really had that in my flesh I will see the great anniversary six twenty one Ellen one explains about God 's people during this period like their affliction is great the flames of the furnace seem about depends but the reef I will bring forth as Gold tried in the finer God 's love for his children very look on their severest trial is as strong and tender as in the days of SIDS prosperity but it is needful for them to be placed in the furnace of their earthiness must be consumed the image of Christ may be becoming reflect the owner that experience one of an experienced I asked again yes are we willing to invest the necessary resources for mishap no basically takes
