Numbers (Program #8) – Being Formed into an Army (9)

Let me ask you.  How and with what does God bless His people?  A worldly song some years back that was actually mocking Christians said “God won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?”  Well, may be we chuckled or perhaps we are little ashamed because those are often the kinds of blessing that we hope God sends us.  May be God’s blessing in our lives are associated with our families or our education or perhaps our career.  Well interestingly we can see the real and genuine blessing that God has for His people from the Old Testament book of Numbers.

Mark (Program #41) – The Death and Resurrection of the Slave-Savior for the Accomplishment of God’s Redemption (3)

On the day of His crucifixion, the Lord Jesus Christ hung on the cross for six hours, from nine in the morning until three in the afternoon.  During the first three hours, He suffered mocking, slander and humiliation at the hands of all manner of men even though He was dying to redeem.

But beginning at twelve noon something remarkable happen and is recorded in Mark chapter 15 verses 33-34, “And when the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is interpreted, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

During the final three hours of His time on the cross, the Lord Jesus was no longer been judged by evil mankind. He had taken upon Himself the sins of mankind to such an extend that God the Father even had to turn away from His beloved Son in righteous judgment, as Christ offered up Himself, an eternal sacrifice for all.

As believers we cherish this story and never tired of hearing it. But beyond this message of redemption and hope, this story also bears consideration for what it says about the inner relationship of the three divine persons in the Godhead.
