For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever you're doing and take this opportunity!



This was emailed to me....This is well worth reading and remembering.   


John 1:29 (King James Version)

29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.


Revelation 1:5

 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,





  Jesus Christ

  For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever you're doing and take this opportunity! Let's see if Satan can stop this.


At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.


At the time, crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.


Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.





The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.  


Both of His feet were nailed together.  Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross.  Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breath.  Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.  


Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.

Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering?  


From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side.  But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body.  A hammer driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped and an even larger nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear..  But before the nails and the spear Jesus was whipped and beaten.  The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body.  The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face.  The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp.  Most men would not have survived this torture.  


When He was speared after His death, both blood and water poured out of His side. John 19:34.


Jesus poured a great deal of his blood; He had three nails hammered into his members; a crown of  thorns on his head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into his chest.


All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying his own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where his hands were nailed).


Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you can have free access to God.
So that your sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception! Don't ignore this situation. JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU! For you, who now reads this e-mail. Do not believe that He only died for others (those who go to church or for pastors, bishops, etc).


He died for you!  

  Accept the reality, the truth that JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.


God has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced to save you. Now think about this! May God bless your life!


60 seconds with God...


For the next 60 seconds, set aside what you're doing and take this opportunity! Let's see if Satan can stop this.


All you have to do is:

1.   Simply pray for the person who sent this message to you:
"Lord, you know the life of my friends.  I ask You to bless them in all things and make them prosperous. Take care of their family, their health, their work and all their future plans.  Lead them not into temptation, but deliver them from evil.  In Jesus' name, Amen."
send this message to 10 people.  
3. 10 people will pray for you and you will make that many people pray to God for other people.  
4. Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life, for doing what pleases Him.
If you believe in Jesus as our Redeemer, please, follow Jesus' instructions.
He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33): "Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whosoever denies me before others,  I also will deny before my Father in heaven".
If you believe, send this message... But send it only if you believe Christ Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
    Yes, I love God. He is my source of life and my Saviour. He keeps me alive day and night.
Without Him I am nothing, but with Him "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me". Philippians 4:13.
This is the simple proof. If you love God and you believe and trust in salvation through Christ Jesus, send this to at least 10 people you love. I sent it to you because I care deeply about you. God bless you.

Now you know.....
