Summary: How Jesus will intercede for us!
JESUS OUR WAY TO
JOHN 14 1-6
Let not your heart be troubled:
Ye believe in God, believe also in me
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
And whither I go ye know, and the way,
Thomas saith unto him, Lord we know
not whither Thou goest; and how can we
know the way?
Jesus saith unto him I am the way, the truth
And the life: no man cometh unto the Father
But by me!
Ole doubting Thomas must have been daydreaming
Jesus had just told them He was going to heaven
Then Thomas caught the tail end of his paragraph
Whither I go ye know, and the way ye know
He woke up with a start
We don’t know where you’re going
How can we know the way??
And Jesus gave us one of his very greatest
Answers of all time!!!!
HE IS THE WAY!
That’s for lost people
HE IS THE TRUTH
That’s for learned people
For as we can so clearly see today
That He is the way the truth and the life!!
Jesus Christ taught his Disciples many wonderful
Things : but the main thing that He taught them
Was that he was going away but He would be back!
Our greatest victory of all was when Jesus went
To that old cross and hung and died there
For your sins and for mine!!!
It was the victory over death and nothing
that I can say or do – and nothing that you
can say or do will ever make it
anything more or
than just that!!!
Just like that old song
VICTORY IN JESUS!!!!
John 19:30 says:
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, IT IS FINISHED
And he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost!
Children the key word here is finished
This means that We have two things to
#1- we are no longer on the fleshly side
or the earthly side of the cross
But now were on the spiritual side of it!!!!
It means that this is where we put our faith
in the finished work of the cross!!
When we put our faith in the finished work
That’s where we cross over to the spiritual
Side or the; Heavenly side of the cross!!
The picture of the cross is only a reminder of the
Death and suffering that our Jesus had to go through
And it should be that it was the only way!
The only acceptable payment by
God’s only begotten Son for the many sins
Of us people!!!!
#2- Jesus is no longer hanging on the cross
He said it’s finished
Yet we continue to hang on to the cross as if
It has some power
People the power is in the precious blood of Jesus Christ, That Was shed for us on that cross
When we try to put the cross first
That’s when we get over on the wrong side
Of the cross
We are on the fleshly side or the earthly side
PEOPLE WE NEED TO STAY ON THE
HEAVENLY SIDE!!!!! AMEN
When we put our faith in Jesus Christ
We flipped the switch from the death and
suffering side of the cross to the living and
heavenly side of the cross!!!
After Jesus died on the cross
The curtain that separated the
holy of holies from The temple –
was torn in two
The curtain that separated the place where
the priests would meet with God once a
year ; and only with blood - was torn from
the top to the bottom!!
Now We can go directly to the throne
Through His Son Jesus Christ
I think the curtain symbolized God’s Son
Giving His life for us people!!
Jesus’ Body laid in the tomb and after the
Sabbath was over;
Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother
of James - And Salome went to anoint Jesus’
body; And as they were going to Jesus
and As they were approaching the tomb
They asked each other
Who’ll roll away the stone??
And two of Jesus’ disciples were walking along to
Emmaus and discussing what had happened in Jerusalem!
Who will I meet on the way to Emmaus?
The angel of the Lord told Mary Magdalene
That Jesus was going on ahead of them
Who will go before us to Galilee??
Jesus walked through the walls and doors of the upper room
To where the eleven were eating!
Who will I meet in Church?
