How great the love of God is for us.
WHAT REALLY HELD YESHUA TO THE TREE?
By Jimmie W. Warren D. D
Your sins and mine are what held Yeshua Jesus Christ to the tree , yes he was nailed to it, the for Love he has for us so, we can know our Father in Heaven Yahweh and be in his soon coming kingdom! Amen
“Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.’” (Galatians 3:13)
There on the tree, ( not on a cross)Yeshua Messiah took all of our curses so that we could experience His many wonderful blessings. Those who follow Yeshua are no longer alienated from God but have His laws inscribed on their hearts.
Yes the same“Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:13–14)
This is why a rich man named Joseph (Some say Jesus’ Uncle) For you must be a family member to ask to take down the body of Yeshua (Jesus) from the execution stake?
“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Yeshua. Going to Pilate, he asked for Yeshua’s body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock.” (Matthew 27:57–60)
According to Jewish priestly legal interpretation found in the halakhah (literally, the way) the one who is guilty of treason or blasphemy would be hung to death on a tree in full display before the people he has betrayed and the God he has blasphemed. This interpretation of Deuteronomy 21:22–23 is found in early Aramaic translations of the Bible and rabbinical literature.
But Yeshua/JESUS wasn't’t guilty of a capital offense, so why was he put to death on a tree?
The Jewish leaders, saw Yeshua hanging on the tree as “proof” that He blasphemed the Lord by claiming to be the Messiah; in their interpretation, no true Messiah would hang on a tree and become a curse of God. Yeshua took the full measure of the curse on our behalf by hanging on a tree. Jesus /Yeshua took ALL THE SINS OF MANKIND ON HIMSELF SO WE MAY LIVE FOREVER! IT WAS NOT IRON NAILS THAT KEEP HIM THERE IT WAS LOVE!
“Surely He took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered Him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4–5)
There on the tree/stake, Yeshua took all of our curses so that we could experience His blessings. Those who follow Yeshua are no longer alienated from God but have His laws inscribed on their hearts.” You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.”(Galatians 5:4)
We are all sinners and strangers to God until our minds were opened—“ Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior ”.(Col 1:21)
"This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord.I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."(Hebrews 10:16)
" Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." (Hebrews 4:14-16 )
And so in closing my dear loved ones Keep looking for your Lord Yeshua/Jesus to return on a cloud where every eye will see him and every knee will bow down and all will say he is Lord!
If you have not asked the Lord into your heart yet, then read your bible, find a church that reads from the word, repent of your sinful ways, and believe in the name of YESHUA, then you shall be saved! Amen and Amen!
