The Crucifixion of Jesus on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m

Updated on November 5, 2016

It Is Finished

The Crown of Thorns & The Purple Robe of Righteousness

Mockery & Scoffing of The King

They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.

And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"

They spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head. After they had mocked Him, they took the scarlet robe off Him and put His own garments back on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.

Yeshua King of the Jews

3 Days & 3 Nights

Many years ago today, Jesus was crucified. It was a Wednesday and a very High Holy day. They placed Him on the cross at 9:00 a.m. and He suffered until 3:00 p.m.

The Word of God is very precise and no mistakes were made, nor was anything left out. The bible clearly details that he was in the grave 3 nights and 3 days. Assuredly He did not arise from the grave on Sunday, but Saturday evening after sundown--Sabbath Day!

Today is Wednesday and at this time, His crucifixion would have taken place and on my time, He would still be on the cross until 3:00 p.m. It is every emotional to think of these things.

Wednesday night = 1 night
Thursday day= 1 day
Thursday night= 2nd night
Friday day= 2nd day
Friday night=3 night
Saturday day=3rd day!

After Saturday sundown He arose! This would be the end of Sabbath day!

Sabbath day is not Sunday and it never will be Sunday! It is Friday night sundown until Saturday night sundown! Jesus rose from the grave after Saturday night sundown -- NOT Sunday!


Thirst for Living Water

Believer versus Unbeliever

Nothing that Jesus does is ever a coincidence, a mistake or for no purpose. There were three bodies hanging on three crosses that day on that place called 'skull' mountain. Two men hung on each side of Jesus that morning. Two criminals, two sinners yet only two choices.

ONLY TWO CHOICES PARADISE OR HELL


Jesus had great 'thirst' right before His death and I wonder if He was showing us as sinners that many of us wait too long to call upon Him to be saved. I have seen numerous people wait until the very last moments of their deaths to call out and accept Jesus. Could this be the 'thirst of the Living water' that Jesus was conveying by this moment documented on the cross?

The Representation of the 3 Crosses

Believe on Him

Luke 23:32

Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him. When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.

But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One."

The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!" Now there was also an inscription above Him, "THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS."

One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!"

WAS IT THE THIEF ON THE 'RIGHT' SIDE OF JESUS WHO BELIEVED ON HIM?

But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?"And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!"

And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

Stop Arguing & Start Seeing His Great Love & Mercy!

Arguing Christians

Have We Missed the Blessing?

I have stepped away from countless arguments in regards to the two criminals on the cross. No thank you to those arguments. I don't like any part of it nor do I even entertain it. There is a big difference between dividing the Words of God and fighting over these things. I find it an incredible time waster. I have actually watched people fighting that the criminal who believed on Jesus did not go to Paradise because he was not baptized with water.

As I have said countless times, there is nothing that God does for no purpose. There is a purpose for everything that He says and does, especially on the cross. This was the most important day of His mission here on earth. Our salvation!

I believe that the Lord was showing us His abundant mercy and grace upon this criminal because of his true repentance and his belief on the King. The King holds the keys to His Kingdom, we do not. His Kingdom is for anyone who believes on Him and He does the rule making or the rule wavering, not us.

How glorious of a thing to see Jesus suffering on a cross with unimaginable pain, yet still he forgave all before He commanded His spirit to God the Father. He had such beautiful love for us. How immense His love is, even for those who mock Him.

For those who are unsure of Jesus and whether to believe on Him in these days called the 'End Times' I can assure you that He is most certainly alive and He surely rose from the grave. He is the King of Kings and He waits for you to call on Him in truth.

I would suggest that you stay away from all of the fighting and confusion and place your trust in Jesus alone and His mighty work on the cross. His victory on the cross to remove our sins is the GOOD news! Call on Him to be saved! Have belief on Him and know that He has great mercy and compassion for you, just as He showed this sinner on the cross.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household."

The Tomb Was Empty

The Stone Was Moved Away

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.

And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.

And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.

MANY PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE SAME FACE AS THESE GUARDS!

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. "Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."

And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

The Great One!

The Lord Has Awesome Ways of Exiting & Entering

God moves through the entire bible with great earthquakes and this was a very significant earthquake that happened as His spirit left His body.

History repeats itself throughout the bible as well, so this is a no-brainer that the Lord is going to move again with a great earthquake. Yes. It is the "Great One" that He has spoken to me about, shown me too many times to count, as well as telling me to 'Warn the people."

THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE TORE THE VEIL -- OUR CONNECTION TO GOD AGAIN!

As the Lord said these words, "It is finished" a huge earthquake rumbled and crumbled the area.

"And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

Just then the temple curtain was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart. And tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had died were raised.

Now when the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what took place, they were extremely terrified and said,

“Truly this one was God’s Son!”

PURIM March 23 & The 5th Rare Blood Moon Tonight

God is Mysterious in ALL of His Ways

Today is Purim, the 'Celebration of Esther' and this is just one more amazing wonder that the Lord is doing on this very Holy Day of His crucifixion! I am so excited over this!

A rare 5th blood moon is expected on Purim and a lunar eclipse tonight! Amazing!


There is no such thing as coincidences in God's world and the connection to the Purim Holiday is a fabulous one! Esther saved the Jews from the first annihilation by the wicked Haman! The rare 5th Blood Moon is another amazing wonder of the Lords.

I wait in anticipation to see what God is going to do next! All of His ways are glorious. His body would have been taken down at 3:00 p.m. I pray that many see this and they glorify Jesus on the correct day!

You got to love our Lord...He does amazing things!

Shalom, JG

      Hey Jeanne! :) Oh yeah...they always find me. They love to come to my pages and poop on it. Whatever. Anybody with the Holy Spirit can see them perfectly. I think that they better watch themselves. God sees and hears everything. I am still praying for you! You were in my prayers today and yesterday! If fact I was just speaking about you to my husband. How funny that you showed up today.

      You are such a blessing. Have a great night! Hugs and lots of laughter over here as well. Thanks for stopping by. I miss you! JG

      Hey Warrior sister...it seems the dung pharasies have found you. I was reading their postings in The Two Witnesses section. They are so full of it and so boastful. I like the way you handle them and give them a final warning.

      And I am still waiting for Jesus to come in a dream or vision. I guess it isn't time yet. He has his schedule, but it would sure help me cope in the especially painful days I have. Even though ....I know that I will not hesitate to fight for Him. Thank you for your prayers and silly laughter! :)

      Thanks Jay! I will check it out. What I know about these people is that they should be the ones standing in the pulpits telling people their testimonies of the Living God! :) Can you imagine going to church and hearing a scripture and then each time one of these people speaking and telling their truths of God? It would surely make everyone think all day long well after they have left church. Now...they just play 'church' and very few come out of the doors feeling full of Fire for the Lord.

      We need to get the FIRE back in the church! I agree brother! I agree.

      Thanks for the information and answering my questions. JG

      Q. If I am remembering these books by Dr. Moody correctly, I recall that there were many people who where not religious or indoctrinated when they had these NDE's. Am I correct?

      A. Yes

      Q. Do you know of any of this doctor's books that do follow ups on these people many years later?

      A. I believe follow ups occurred within the studies given. Also see website, IANDS for more current information.

      I believe if churches would teach NDEs they might get together and forget their individual doctrines.

      I thought about the comment you left awhile ago and yes, I did read a few of his books. They were very thought provoking. I really liked reading about these people's experiences with Heaven and some Hell that I have read. Reading those books made me continue to seek God.

      I believe that those people truly had spiritual experiences. I do. I believe in an afterlife and I know that the places that the Lord takes me are real. I have not been inside Heaven but only Heavenly places. I don't know what else to call them? Yes. I do believe that they would give proof of an afterlife. No denying that.

      The problem arises with people who are blind, or do not believe in what they call religion and the religious. If I am remembering these books by Dr. Moody correctly, I recall that there were many people who where not religious or indoctrinated when they had these NDE's. Am I correct?

      Yes. In my spirit after what I have been experiencing I believe that they were given glimpses of an after-life. I do not believe what the scientists say about the LIGHT being the dying brain. Hardly. These people were blessed by God for His purpose and His Glory.

      Jesus is a whole different story. Do I believe that He had an NDE and then was raised. No. I say this only because His presence has been in my visions. I do not see His face but I feel him. He has a great presence of kindness, love, mercy, truth as well as greatness that I can not explain with words. I do not need to see His face. I know Him and I know His voice. I don't know how I know it is Him..I just do. It is like we have known each other a long time ago. Very difficult to articulate.

      Yes Jay, I do believe that NDE's would prove the existence of an afterlife but the people who do not believe are blinded to the truth of the Gospel so it matters not....until it happens to them. I have been praying for the Lord to appear to a few specific people. Has the Lord appeared to you?

      I know that when I realized that this was the Lord I was amazed and so happy. I prayed often for Him to please come back but He did not for a long while. I know why now but I did not know then. When this experience happened to me I didn't want to live. I wanted to go to Him now. I wanted nothing to do with the world. That is not good. Once I understood that I had a mission I stopped wanting to leave this world and be with him. I started praying for His will to be done instead.

      I agree Jay! I believe that these NDE's were very personal to those who had them. Jesus shows himself in any way He chooses and He chose them! That is terrific. I know this much about everyone of them who has had a NDE. They no longer fear death anymore. I get it. I really do. I would love to know what happened to each of their lives after this. Do you know of any of this doctor's books that do follow ups on these people many years later?

      Shalom, JG

      FYI: Prevalence of NDEs

      •Surveys taken in the US, Australia and Germany suggest that 4 to 15 % of the population have had NDEs.

      •Every day in the U.S., 774 NDEs occur, according to the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF).16

      •Of more than 800 near-death experiencers (NDErs) reporting to IANDS, 25% believed they were clinically dead at the time of their NDE.17

      •A large study conducted in the Netherlands showed that 18% of people who suffered a cardiac arrest and were clinically dead had later reported an NDE.

      Yes, Jesus was clinically dead, but so were some of the NDE people. Yes, Jesus is special, but wouldn't the verified NDEs prove the existence of an afterlife?

      See IANDS website.

      Jeanne :) I didn't see it either. Wonder if it was in a different hemisphere? Glad you got a good laugh hahaha. I really hate those stupid snow cone hats. Hugs ((JG))) I am still waiting to hear from you about having an awesome dream of Him!

      I believe Raymond Moody sounds familiar to me. I may have read one of his books long ago Jay. Jesus wants us to believe on Him and He is the forgiver of all sins. Yes! true! You are correct he does not want us doing any type of sacrifices for sin. Salvation is through Him alone.

      I do know of these heavenly places and I know they are real, because I go to some of these heavenly places... though I have never had an NDE. Did Jesus have an NDE? He wasn't 'near' death but truly died and rose up, spiritual as well as body. I would believe Jesus would be in a whole different category on an NDE. Interesting thought though.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your footprints Jay. God bless you, JG

      Joy I kept trying to see the blood moon last night but over here in the Pacific NW...of course we had cloud coverage. I do like your sense of humor..the comment of the snow cone. I kept envisioning the Pope getting a thunk in the back of the head, like Gibbs does to Denoso in NCIS,,only this thunk will be on a much larger scale, right! Thanks for reminding me to laugh once and a while. Keep on Warrior Sister...bringing us the Good Word. Hugs back. Jeanne

      I am reading a book by Raymond A. Moody, Jr. M.D. on Near Death Experiences (NDEs). In an NDE a person is clinically dead and comes back to life to tell stories of heaven or an afterlife. Verified NDEs would be proof of an afterlife. Did Jesus have an NDE? Jesus proved an afterlife exists because he could not come back from nothing. Jesus taught: Forgiveness removes sin, Not any form of sacrifice.

      Awwwweeeeeee you didn't know. :*(

      Yes. That is probably why you felt that inside. I sat out in the sun reading and had a few tears. Many don't know Jeanne. They lie so bad these religious people. UGH.

      That's okay...they will continue to mock and lie and make the people believe a lie but when He returns he won't be wearing that crown of thorns. It will be a Kings Crown and not that silly upside down funnel cup that the Pope on a rope wear on his head!

      I can assure you after hearing His voice about the 10 Kings being destroyed that He is not coming back as a gentle Lamb either. The pretend Vicar of Jesus Christ is going to get his upside down snow cone knocked off his head and it is going to melt really fast. lol (sometimes I laugh at my own jokes as i am doing now bahahaha because I am imagining it. It will be an awesome day and I will clap my hands!)

      Thanks for stopping by Jeanne. Can you see the blood moon? I am stepping out again before heading to bed. It was only a full moon until the eclipse. (((hugs))) Joy

      Joy, once again you have revealed truth to something that I had not questioned before, Resurrection Sunday. Now I understand why a deep sadness came over me late this afternoon at work. Our precious Jesus was suffering, beyond words, for our sins so that we may enter Heaven. He is our Savior and I will stand for Him, as will others. Joy, keep sharing your Gift with us, I'm listening. :)
