THERE MUST HAVE BEEN MORE THAN JUST 3 NAILS

WHAT HELD JESUS TO THE CROSS

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfinger@aol.com

I HAVE A CROSS AND THREE NAILS BEFORE THE CROWD...

I HAVE 8 PIECES OF WOOD WITH THE 8 THINGS PAINTED ON THEM...

THE CRUCIFIXION...

Type of punishment in ancient times.

Deut. 21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise

bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled,

which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

BEFORE THE CROSS OR CRUCIFIXION CAME A CONDEMNATION, THEN A SCOURGING...

The tradition was to mix vinegar (acid) and gall (bitterness) ... TO NUMB...

Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would

not drink.

JESUS REFUSED...

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS IS A GREAT SYMBOL OF BIBLICAL DOCTRINE...

BLOOD

SUFFERING

PERSECUTION

RECONCILATION

PEACE

OFFENCE

THERE IS A MESSAGE FROM THE CROSS...

THE CROSS WHILE DESPISED AND A SHAME BRINGS GREAT GLORY...

THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ENEMIES OF THE CROSS... WITHOUT & WITHIN

Philip. 3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are

the enemies of the cross of Christ:

I have heard several debate the THREE RUSTY NAILS... through the flesh was what

kept Jesus on the cross those hours until HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD ...

HEBREW FOR NAIL: YATHED...

PEG, NAIL FOR PIERCING...

Col. 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened

together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

[14] Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took

it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Ephes. 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the

enmity thereby:

THERE WERE 3 CRUCIFIED THAT DAY:

1. ONE DIED IN SIN

2. ONE DIED TO SIN

3. ONE DIED FOR SIN...

DID 3 BIG, RUSTY NAILS HOLD JESUS TO THE CROSS?

THERE WAS MUCH MORE THAN NAILS HOLDING HIM...

1. THERE WAS A ROPE OF THE PROMISE OF GOD... FORE ORDAINED PLAN...

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed;

it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Genesis 12:3 I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all

families of the earth be blessed.

2. THERE WAS A ROPE OF GOD THE FATHER'S WILL...

Matthew 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may

not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Matthew 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not

pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more

than twelve legions of angels?

3. THERE IS THE ROPE OF LOVE... LOVE NEVER FAILS...

1 Cor. 13:8 Charity never faileth: ----

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,

that ye also love one another.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

4. THERE IS THE ROPE OF SUBSTITUTION... NOT A HIRELING BUT A REAL SHEPHERD...

2 Cor. 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the

righteousness of God in him.

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Isaiah 53:5 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.

5. THE ROPE THAT HELD JESUS TO THE CROSS TOOK THE STINGER OUT OF DEATH,

TOOK OUT THE VICTORY OF THE GRAVE...

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed

upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance

of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
