Easter And The Cross: Why Was A Cross Needed? Sin required a blood sacrifice from a spotless lamb: Jesus was crucified the same hour a lamb was also Crucified. God came to earth as Man - never sinned - to remove sin! He came to Earth to be with us, lived without sin and was crucified for our sins.
EASTER: The cross is a fulfillment of prophecy and it proves that only God could orchestrate the time and events to fulfill such amazing prophecy. During Easter we celebrate the cross from which we learn of the beating Jesus took for our healing and the death for our sins. He took your place, to cover your sin. Good Friday (as story of Jonah) & The "Resurrection Day." We are to remember what Jesus did.
Jesus rode into Jerusalem, for Passover, riding a donkey, and in between His resurrection on the third day, the event of the cross took place. There were several things that happened leading up to and
during the hours of the cross, prophesied by the Old Testament "Prophet Isaiah".
Isaiah 50: 6 "I gave my back to those who struck Me, (meaning: I allowed my back to be beaten)
and my cheeks to those who plucked out my beard; I did not hide my face from shame and spitting”
(They spit in my face). Scripture was given 700 years before being fulfilled with beating of Christ:
Matthew 26: 67-68 and John 19:1-3.
Jesus was spat on, slapped and scourged as Isaiah, (Old Testament Prophet) had foretold.
Isaiah 53: Read many details: filled 700 years later! Matthew 27:38. Isaiah 53:7 “He opened
not His mouth” Mathew 27: 14 “But He answered him not one word”. Jesus took a fierce
beating, hung on the cross and gave His life on earth (as a lamb) in place of my life or yours.
He offers you eternal life. YOU CHOOSE: ACCEPT HIS GIFT OR REJECT IT:
The FREE gift He bought (that's why He came to Earth) with the price of His blood.
JESUS said, "No man comes to the Father but through me." He Stands to welcome us. 1st our
name must be written in the Book Of Life. How Do I Do That?! Ask, Repent Of Sin, Share It.
Who Else Gave Their Life For Mankind And Promised Eternal Life?
Jesus' resurrection shows - we will also RISE. His Word says we will be forever with the Lord!
Is there any OTHER who was Prophecied, Crucified, placed in a GRAVE, AROSE and seen of
500 men? A trial in a court of law would believe evidence with a "crowd of witnesses" like that.
A trial today would believe you with the testimony of two or three witnesses.
John Chapter 1 Says: Jesus was the WORD And The WORD WAS GOD. Genesis 1: At Creation,
God Spoke "THE WORD" St John: Jesus IS called "The Word". That Word brought Creation!
Prophecies: Including the CROSS are in the Books of Isaiah & David: Psalms Chapter 22.
Psalm 22 covers events of the cross 1700 years before it happened. It parallels all gospel
Scripture down to the smallest of details like casting lots for the garments of Jesus (Psalm 22:18 – Matt.27:35).
The cross shows the sacrifice of the Lamb of God -as only blood atonement could cover the
sins of the world and His resurrection: His gifts for the salvation of humankind to live eternally!
How our amazing God fulfilled "all those prophecies" EXACTLY to the letter of prophecy.

Incredible Prophecies of Christ! Why We Celebrate Jesus' Birth:
Micah 5:2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrata, though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
yet OUT OF YOU shall come forth to Me, the one ruler in Israel, who’s goings forth are from OLD,
from everlasting.” (Old Testament Prophecy)
Matthew 1:20 But after he, (Joseph), had considered this (Mary being with child and Joseph
unsure what to do), an ANGEL of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph
son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is
conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. (Holy Spirit Hovered - Like He Did In Genesis 1)
(Dreams & visions of Jesus are happening Across the World! All people who ask, receive!)
The Old Testament Book of Micah, only has 7 chapters but it's 70% prophetic in its teaching!
We are given a great prophecy, pinpointing the exact town where Jesus
(The one ruler of Israel whose going forth is from old, from everlasting), is born.
No one in history, except Jesus, fills age old prophecies. Do Your Leaders Fit These?
Some would say that David, a GREAT ruler, absolutely, was born in Bethlehem but his going forth
is not from old or from everlasting. The book of Micah was written around 700 BC. - 700 years
before Jesus was born and yet even secular history supports when the book of Micah was written
and Jesus was born.
Bethlehem is a small little town around 5 miles south of Jerusalem. Why Bethlehem, why didn’t
Joseph and Mary go on further when there was not another room in the Inn? Maybe an extra few
miles to the larger capital city?
It was prophetic that Jesus be born in Bethlehem, for two major reasons:
1. To fulfill the Holy Scriptures. God’s word is never proven wrong and He gave us the location as
unlikely as Bethlehem would seem. 2. The lineage of the Savior had to come from the Davidic family line.
Both Mary and Joseph were from the lineage of David. (St. Luke 2: 4-7) How fitting that Jesus would be
born to an earthly Mother whose husband, and she, were both from the ancestry of King David's linage.
Jesus was a Jew, born of the Virgin Mary. Promised of God the Father: (Above: Trinity Note In Green.)
Jesus was born in the same city as King David, centuries earlier. Why would Joseph and Mary travel
to Bethlehem, when Mary was ready to give birth any minute, riding on a Donkey, to find a place there
to sleep? No rooms were available but yet, God made a way and the a warm place, in a cave where animals
slept at night. There was a mandatory census for all of Israel. He was to be born near ALL of His Creation.
So where would the census be held? Bethlehem of course! And... if they were in a room inside the Inn,
how could the shepherds get in? It was a perfect place! When would the Messiah be born? At the exact time
of the signs (Heavenly signals of the stars), THE prophetic Star was foretold long ago, (A signal from the sky)
using writings read by the wise men in the Palace of Persia. (Modern Iran/Iraq). It only makes sense that
there would also be Heavenly signs for His Second coming.
There was a prophecy that involved a sign in the stars proclaiming the birth of a King. King of the Jews.
Somewhere in the near future, and His birth would be signaled with the sign of an unusually bright star
from the Heavens. Today we again see signs, the moon and sun (signaling) His reappearance!
Those who were NOT watching for the (STAR) didn't know about the prophecy of a coming King.
King Herod had no knowledge of this bright star before hand but the WISE MEN of Persia were watching for it! They believed! They knew the time was right for this prophecy, and they went looking for this star and brought gifts from many miles until they saw the star and they followed it! It moved and stopped at the exact
place where Jesus was! They were guided by the star and it stopped where the little child Jesus lived! Wow!
Prophecy is amazing! When we look at what Jesus told us and how His entire life is in a book so we can know it too. Recent digs document historic facts and confirm these prophecies in the land where He walked and lived. Amazing, Our Lord and Savior! From His burial cloth - to an empty grave - His Holy Word is the Greatest Book We Have!
In the Storms of Our Lives, He comes to find us, Wraps His arms around us; He puts us
on His shoulder near to His heart and comforts us, takes us back to the fold and protects us! (Psalms 91)
JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE who gave His life's blood for us, and He asks that we repent,
put our trust in Him, listen for His voice and watch for His appearing.
He will call us some day soon! Within This Generation!

New Life In Him! Not Of Ourselves - Lest We Boast Of Our Own Work!
It Would NOT Be "Heaven" If Everyone Bragged: "I'm Greater Than You!"
- Pastor Cathy Ray -
The "Generation" At The "Time Of The End" Is To Learn About "The Fig Tree."
The Fig Tree Represents Israel: When The World Comes Against Israel, Watch Out!
"Learn the parable of the fig tree: When its branch has become tender, (its growing) it puts out
leaves, you know summer is near, when you see all these things, (These Signs Coming To Pass)
of Matthew 24, know that the time is near, even at the door! (Time For Messiah To Return.)
This is the generation that has seen Israel reborn as a nation (1948), after thousands of years, scattered
in many countries - now are being gathered together again to Israel. THIS generation will not pass
away (Jesus is talking about who will still be alive) at the End Of The Age. We watch the signs and
signals from Heaven, many earthquakes, and when these things begin, look up, Jesus is coming soon!
Read: Matthew 24: 32-35
33: "When you see ALL these things, recognize that the time is near, RIGHT AT THE DOOR."
34: "Truly I say to you, this generation WILL NOT PASS AWAY until all these things take place."
35: "Heaven and earth will pass away but My Words Will NOT Pass Away."
Matthew 10:23 "When you (People Of Israel) are persecuted in one place, flee to another.
Truly I tell you, you will NOT finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man
(Jesus Christ) comes!" That is a PROMISE FROM JESUS AS HE TALKED WITH DISCIPLES!
When Signs And Strange Events Occur: In The Sky, Earthquakes & War Everywhere:
Jesus' Return Is Very Near! Nothing Can Delay It! Pray To God To Make You Ready!
The signs (SIGNALS); We are to be aware that God is giving us warnings to be ready for
the coming of the Lord and also "His Second Coming!" He does not tolerate world-wide wickedness.
Are You ready? Jesus offers Us A Free Gift: Eternal Life! How? Humbly Repent & Have Faith In Him!
