FATHER FATHER Why have You Forsaken Me?

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?
2 My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.

PSALM: 22; 1-2

Why was Jesus forsaken by God? This age old mystery has always been the gateway into understanding the concept of CHRIST. Those who were present at the crucifixion begged HIM to perform a miracle and escape the crucifix. Others mocked HIM to perform the same escape tactics because He had performed so many miracles.

Why did not Jesus the CHRIST save his own self?

The Test of Humanity

Would mankind really kill an innocent person? Yes.

It happens all the time. People, who go about doing good and nice things for humanity have been repeatedly targeted and eliminated.

Jesus came as the lamb to be slaughtered in order to fulfill the final sacrifice needed for humanity to be forgiven for their wickedness and brutality.

The Passover Lamb

In Exodus 12, the FATHER promised to strike down the first born of every household in Egypt. The children of Israel (Twelve Tribes of Israel) where instructed to prepare a sacrificial lamb as a feast and mark the top of the door frames with the sacrificial lamb's blood. When the FATHER went through Egypt that night, He will see the mark of the blood and Passover that household of His children.

Jesus the CHRIST is a representation of the sacrificial lamb.

Those who are covered in His Blood will be passed over.

The Bronze Snake That was Lifted Up

During the Journey in the desert away from Egypt, the people sinned by becoming ungrateful by wishing that they were back in slavery. The children of Israel wished they could go back and eat the slave master's food because the journey was tedious.

The children of Israel were then afflicted by venomous snakes because of their ungratefulness to be free. They cried to Moses to intercede with the FATHER in order to be forgiven.

Moses was instructed by the FATHER to construct a bronze snake and erect it on a pole. Anyone that looked upon the snake would be healed from the bites of the venomous snakes.

Jesus the CHRIST is a representation of the BRONZE snake that has to be lifted up in the desert in order to spare the life of the FATHERS' children.

The Passover Feast (The Lords Supper)

Before the CHRIST was crucified, He attended the Passover feast along with his twelve disciples, who represents the Twelve Tribes of Israel. They broke and ate from the same unleavened bread and drank from the same cup.

At this point, Jesus the CHRIST was the sacrificial lamb sitting at the table. His blood will be spilled as the final sacrifice.

Matthew 26:27-28

27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

The Trinity

The trinity is the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY GHOST. Before being crucified, Jesus the CHRIST was the embodiment of the trinity.

John 14:11

Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.

You can always judge a person by the actions they take in life. Evil people do wicked things. Good people do good things. Jesus the CHRIST was basically saying that He can only do the works of His FATHER.

Jesus the CHRIST and the FATHER were in one accord before the crucifix.

My God My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me

When Jesus the CHRIST was lifted up on the cross, the trinity was broken. The FATHER had turned His back on His son. Jesus was forsaken by god. All the spiritual and miraculous powers that were once possessed by Jesus the CHRIST was gone. He screamed out in great pain and anguish "My God My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?" or "FATHER FATHER Why have You Forsaken Me?"

My God, my God, for what have you forsaken me? - English

ηλι ηλι λιμα σαβαχθανει - Greek

Aramaic- אלהי למא שבקתנ

Why did the FATHER separate from the SON?

Why was Jesus forsaken by God?

The SON had taken upon himself the wickedness (sin) of the world by being the sacrificial lamb. The FATHER does not mix with sin. He only knows GOOD. The SON would have to bare the sin of the world by Himself.

The Resurrection

The wages of sin is death. The only hope for the SON was to not have committed any wicked activities while He was with Humanity. If He had sinned, His reward would be death. The resurrection is the reward for doing GOOD works amongst humanity. Jesus the CHRIST would have to do everything on his own merit without the intervention of His Father.

Each human being can attain the CHRIST spirit by doing GOOD.

Within each human being the trinity has been broken. We become the embodiment of the trinity whenever we do GOOD.

Very interesting and well-written,but sorry to say not convincing.The questions are:

Why an all-loving, omnipotent, all-knowing God need to bother himself to come to earth or rather demand that what you call his son be offered up as a human blood sacrifice in order for justice to be satisfied and forgiveness offered. . Why can't God forgive us freely?

Many believe that for God nothing is impossible but the Bible says that it is impossible for God to lie.

Likewise God has established all the laws of this universe, without which this universe could not exist. God must obey those laws or this universe would cease to exist.

One of those laws is eye for an eye. God can forgive us freely but that does not return to us what has been lost.

Adam lost for all mankind freedom from sin and death, so to return mankind to a condition free of sin and death, an eye for an eye must be paid. So Jesus becomes the second Adam and his sacrifice as a perfect man buys back for mankind the perfection that Adam gave up.

Where in the Bible a verse tells that Jesus died for our sins?depending on words spoken by Paul leads nowhere.Why?because he says in 1 Corinthians 15:3: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.

According to this passage, Paul is claiming that this ideology is supported by the scriptures, and in this case he is making reference to the Hebrew Scriptures, or The Tanach. However, one will find that this idea of an innocent man, in this case Jesus(as), having to pay for the sins of others is nowhere to be found in the Hebrew Bible. In actuality, it is the exact opposite that is found in the Hebrew Scriptures.Look Ezekiel 18:20-22.This verse is enough to prove that Paul s claim that his teachings are in accordance with the scriptures is false. The spilling of innocent blood for the redemption of mankind is a belief that has its roots in paganism and was adopted into Christianity by Paul and solidified as dogma at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D(I wrote something about it in a hub called :Trinity exposed..You can check it if you want)

I read that you said that Each human being can attain the CHRIST spirit by doing GOOD.Is that really what Protestants believe in?Where is only by having faith in the crucifixion OF Jesus you can saved?

and you said that the CHRIST is a representation of the BRONZE snake that has to be lifted up in the desert ..Who says this?the interpretation of who?

Sorry if I offended you ,just want to open a discussion here.

Many blessings to you.

1.Why can't God forgive us freely? Because people do not want to do good.

2 & 3. Where in the Bible a verse tells that Jesus died for our sins?

and you said that the CHRIST is a representation of the BRONZE snake that has to be lifted up in the desert ..Who says this? the interpretation of who?

John 3;

.12“If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?13“No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.14“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;15so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life."

Christ just came on earth like myself and you, to do good things. Nothing else is required.

1.Your first response indicates that God is subject to the ebb and flow of humanity, and is reacting with a "caught-off-guard" emotional feeling when He sees man's doings.He got upset and acted according to his whims .Besides,we know that God is alknowing, above our knowledge and planned things even before there was eternity.What He did to Jesus according to the Bible account means He didnt plan that from the beginning(This is not you believe in cause you emphasize on the word LIFTED UP) .

2.In your response you said `Lifted up',so God didnt kill Jesus(himself).That is funny sorry to say that because I see that you dont know what you believe in.

3.Jesus was not the only one who was called in the Bible by SON OF MAN:

The phrase translated "son of man" in the Old Testament is, invariably, the Hebrew Ben adam ."Son of man" appears some 109 times in the King James Version of the Old Testament.

In at least 12 instances, the phrase clearly means "man in general" or "humanity" and refers to no particular person. Examples include:

"God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)"

"Put not your trust in princes, (nor) in the son of man, in whom [there is] no help (Psalms 146:3)"

"As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour (cities) thereof, saith the LORD, no man shall abide there, neither shall a son of man dwell in it. (Jeremiah 49:18)"

"And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons, (and) a desolation for ever: there shall no man abide there, nor [any] son of man dwell in it. (Jeremiah 49:33)"

"As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour [cities] thereof, saith the LORD; (so) shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. (Jeremiah 50:40)"

"Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth (any) son of man pass thereby. (Jeremiah 51:43)"

Other similar examples appear in Job 25:6 and 35:8, Psalms 8:4 and 144:3, and Isaiah 51:12 and 56:2.

In the vast majority of instances, however, "son of man" represents a word used in place of the proper name of an individual, like we might, in everyday speech, use "brother," "sister," "buddy" or a like expression in place of the actual name of an individual being addressed or referred to.The Prophet Ezekiel is addressed by God as "son of man" some 94 times in the King James Version! Some examples:

4.According to the verse you stated here from (John 3:13).I am asking you to read thes verses:

(2 Kings 2:11) - "Then it came about as they were going along and talking, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven."

(Genesis 5:24) - "And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him."

What do you think?Do you still believe that Jesus is the only one who ascended to heaven?If so,I can say THE BOOK OF John is NOT VALID.No wonder,it wasn't John who wrote it.look at this verse below:

John 21:24-25

24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.

25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

"We know that his testimony is true"?!Wow. Wasn't the disciple John the one who supposedly wrote the gospel of John? How can he say about himself that "we know that his (the author) testimony is true"?! Isn't this a clear and indisputable proof that the book was written by an unknown person?

Many Bible's theologians confirm this:

"Many scholars of the past two centuries have denied that John wrote this book, partly because of their belief that the author fabricated many details such as the miracles and the discourses of Jesus. (The Holman Illustrated Study Bible, ISBN: 978-1-58640-275-4, Gospel of John, Page1540)"

"Critical Analysis makes it difficult to accept the idea that the gospel as it now stands was written by one person. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1136)"

"Within the gospel itself there are also some inconsistencies. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1136)"

"To solve these problems, scholars have proposed various rearrangements that would produce a smoother order. However, most have come to the conclusion that the inconsistencies were probably produced by subsequent editing in which homogeneous materials were added to a shorter original. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1136)"

"Other difficulties for any theory of eyewitness authorship of the gospel in its present form are presented by its highly developed theology and by certain elements of its literary style. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1136)"

Sorry if my language was offending.

Many blessings to you.

No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. Where did you think Elijah came from? Where did you think Adam came from? Where did you think each human being came from? Everyman shall return to his rightful location. Death is an illusion.

SO why are you contradicting yourself?And what logic are you using here?You were before trying to prove THE LIFTING UP( the snake story) by DESCENDING which means by ASCENDING.SO ODD!

Elijah,Adam,You ,Me..Only human beings (son of man) who could return to heaven.The verse excludes other creatures,and if you believe that all of us humans could return to heaven so why you inserted the verse : ..but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man to prove that it talks about Jesus.Look at what you said before ;

and you said that the CHRIST is a representation of the BRONZE snake that has to be lifted up in the desert ..Who says this? the interpretation of who?

John 3;

.12“If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?13“No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.

Once again,You wanted to prove ascending by descending!!

I do not understand what are you trying to prove. Do you want me stop loving humanity? I only repeated myself. You can only do the things that are a representation of your personality. Wicked people do wicked things and good people do good things. Peace and love my friend. I do not understand why people get upset with me for choosing a peaceful path.
