When Jesus Won

Text: Luke 23:33-46 - And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Introduction : Today I want to talk about -- thank you ushers, you may be seated -- I want to talk about "When Jesus Won". The American Standard Bible says of this text " And when they came unto the place which is called The skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand and the other on the left. And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And parting his garments among them, they cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also scoffed at him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen. And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, offering him vinegar, and saying, If thou art the King of the Jews, save thyself. And there was also a superscription over him, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. And one of the malefactors that were hanged railed on him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us. But the other answered, and rebuking him said, Dost thou not even fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said, Jesus, remember me when thou comest in thy kingdom. And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, to-day shalt thou be with me in Paradise. And it was now about the sixth hour, and a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun’s light failing: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost. " When Jesus Won.

My brothers and sisters, saints and sinners, bond and free, children of the most high, and of you that love the Lord. I greet you in the powerful matchless name of Jesus. As we uncover the mystery of this text, I pray that you will with open hearts, with open spirits, ,with open minds and listen with me as the Lord dialog with us a word from the heaven. The word is rich with instruction, wisdom encouragement, enlightenment, and correction. There is a word from the Lord. Let us look as this text.

What an excruciating time for our Lord as he anticipated His crucifixion. His experience in the garden presents to us a picture of a man prepared to face His ultimate test.

Jesus’ Father placed upon His shoulder the sins of the world and under its weight He yet pressed on to accomplish what only God could do: save the world from itself.

To think that Jesus, God incarnate, died on the cross of Calvary goes beyond comprehension. He suffered, brutality, torture, and pain in order to buy you and I from Satan and his devilish plan. Nothing would, more less nothing could stop Him or hinder the path in which he walk. He had no choice but to do it. The only way men would know how much He cared for them, was through the love he showed through giving Himself.
