TOPIC: THE DARKNESS AT THE CROSS (PART 2)
Scripture: Mark 15: 33. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
Beloved, in continuation of what we started yesterday concerning the darkness at the Cross. It was a darkness that lasted for three hours from 12noon to 3pm. it was not just darkness, but the sun itself was darkened.
This occurred during the Passover, which is always observed at the time of the full moon, which makes an eclipse of the sun impossible.
It was the last breath of Jesus that terminated the darkness, when Jesus said it is finished(John 19:30), then darkness of 3hours end. Yes darkness came but Jesus conquer darkness, He paid the ultimate price for our redemption, hence you don’t have any excuse to go to hell. If you go to hell today, it is your fault because the price has been paid.
The implications of the darkness at the cross;
1. It proves God’s wrath against sin and sinner – like the darkness in Egypt. The sin we inherited from Adam was judged when God placed it on His son, Jesus;
2 Corinthians 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.
Satan also was judged. Jesus knew this is the hour to judge the power of darkness, when He said:
Luke 22: 53. When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
Beloved, judgement came upon the enemy like it came upon Pharaoh and the Egyptians! You will recall in Exo.10:21-23, the Lord judged the land of Egypt with three days of darkness such that no one could move an inch. The entire Egyptian economy was paralyzed. Also in Exo.14:20-21, when God was to judge Pharaoh and his army, the first thing was to bring darkness that slowed their motion and made the people of God inaccessible. Infact, by the time they realized it, (Exo.14:25) it was too late! They all perished in the Red Sea.
Beloved, I bring you a word of hope, every enemy of your destiny that has refused to let you go, their destruction has arrived. Like darkness at the cross judged Satan and his cohorts, every enemy of your soul that won’t let you rest shall be laid to rest in the name of Jesus. Every sinful habit that has made you a slave to sin is forever judged. Now enter into your liberty in the name of Jesus.
- The darkness proved therefore the doom of the unbeliever:
a. It shows the future misery for the neglecting soul.
Matthew 8: 12. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
b. All those who reject Christ will perish in outer darkness called hell.
Matthew 22: 13. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Beloved, the darkness showst to us that there is a darkness that is coming to the soul of everyone who rejects the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. Are you born again? Or you are just playing around church. Don’t gamble with your eternal soul! If you know you are not sure of your salvation and you will need help, kindly private chat me.
What the Holy Ghost is saying today is that, sin has been judged, the enemy has been judged and there is doom day waiting for anyone who rejects Jesus.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Don’t gamble with your eternal soul.
- Father thank you for your word to me today.
- Lord I surrender my life to you again and again! Judge every enemy of my destiny in Jesus name.
- I prophesy an end has come to that struggle in your soul in the name of Jesus
- Everyone that stands as a Pharaoh that won’t let you go, receive the judgement of God now in the name of Jesus.
