Unto Us the Cross is the Power of God

 
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (I Corinthians 1:18).
The act of Calvary represents history’s most powerful demonstration of love by Jesus Christ. All because it exploded an unparalleled power against evil and a superior love for humanity never seen before. All hope, miracles, strength and sustaining love flows from the finished works of Calvary by Jesus Christ. Every act He performed through Calvary was for redemptive, reconciliatory and relationship purposes (Hebrew 4:15).

1.     His trial and court case with the Sanhedrin (Isaiah 53:3-4):

  • Was for power to be released to help us when we experience the slander.
  • Was for power released to help us when we experience character assassinations.

2.     His scourging and beatings (Isaiah 53:5):

  • Was for power to be released for our physical sufferings we would experience.
  • Was for power released to give us our physical healings.

3.     The crown of thorns (Philippians 2:5):

  • Was for power released for our mental and emotional healings.
  • Was for power to be released for strength and endurance for the mind.

4.     The nail piercings of his hands (John 20:27):

  • Was for power to be released to help us with service ministry and loving others relationally.

5.     The nailed piercings for his feet (Romans 10:15):

  • Was for power released for our jobs and ministries.
  • Was for carrying the Gospel.

6.     The piercing of his side (Ephesians 5:30):

  • Was for power released to be His Bride,
  • Was for power to learn how to receive his kind of superior love for us personally.

7.     The robe Jesus wore (Isaiah 61:10):

  • Was for power to walk in our identity.
  • Was for power to walk in holiness living.
Calvary is FINAL! It is our total source for power and passion when engaging in spiritual warfare and intimacy with Jesus Christ. Regarding this message, let’s pray in faith these areas into the natural, based on Calvary’s finished Works (Colossians 2:14-15).
