Did Jesus die on your cross for you? Yes or no?
No, for He died upon the Cross. HIS Cross. the Father had prepared for Him from all Eternity!
Welcome to BB.
Could you expand on your thought here? What are you asking?
Jesus died on ...The cross.
He died for me and all the Father gave Him.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.:thumbsup:
How could he die for you on his cross? You have your own cross to bear. Jesus did not bear your cross for you.True or false?
Jesus bore our sins in His body on the cross of Calvary:
1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
1 Peter 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
1 Peter 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
Jesus died for our sins, according to the Scriptures:
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
Where did Jesus die?
Luke 23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
Taking up our own cross is symbolic for discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
BTW, would it be possible for you to lose that large, bold, red font? It's hard on some people's eyes. Thanks!
One of the traits of trolls is they ask a lot of vague questions that make almost no sense. But they offer no real substance nor do they care to develop relationships with people. They just get in your face.
Another is someone who always goes from thread to thread on a forum and makes statements that never have no merit or anything to do with the thread and cannot prove them.
How could Jesus die for you on his cross? You have your own cross to bear. Jesus did not bear your cross for you.True or false?
PreacherOfTruth....do you have some sort of hidden agenda? You are sounding like a broken record with the same response for everyone's post.
Jesus Christ took our place on a Roman cross at Calvary. What part of that do you not understand?
Christ was made sin for us:
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
I agree Revmitchell. There is no real substance to the questions asked and absolutely no Scripture given.
I walked into a meeting room full of people this morning. They were all sitting in the dark. I flipped the light switch and behold there was light. Did I turn on the light switch for all or was it my light switch? Perhaps it was the light switch that was made available at the time the building was built.
Are you saved by His Cross, or by bearing your own Cross?
Both, you have to bear your own cross and follow him.
That is what he said you have to do, how come you do not believe him?
:thumbsup::thumbsuping Ding Ding!!! We have a winner folks!!!..............
The answer is....We don't "have a 'cross' to bear"....
That's un-Scriptural pablum....we are to: "take up our cross"..(that means to DIE to oneself).
The "cross we bear", falsity is actually our "burden". Christ's yoke is easy and his burden is light. His "yoke" and his "burden" (which we bear) is not our "cross". We take up our cross to DIE (just as he did).
We take upon ourselves his "burden".....and it's light. But we don't "have a cross to bear"...that's post-modernist crap.
"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."
Christ fulfilled the penalty for me not being compliant in every aspect of the law.
Because of that fulfillment, I do not seek to submit to the law's punishment nor construct new law.
I live by many principles and few convictions.
What the law could not do, and I definitely could not attain, Christ both did attain and accomplish.
Therefore:I don't go constructing my own cross to bear, but in my freedom through Christ seek out others burdens to bear.
Because I have the freedom to cast every single personal burden upon the Lord, I am unshackled from this world and bound to the Kingdom of God.
I have not to look upon a cross for relief, but to listen to the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit's teaching, and visit moment by moment with my redeemer who is faithful even in my unfaithfulness.
If you were crucified with Christ then you would have had to risen from the grave. Are you risen from the grave? Yes or no?
Instead of posting absurd stupidity to me...try to post the truth. It makes for a much fulfilling conversation.
Yes, absolutely. Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree. That curse was mine.
Not only did not Jesus take your place on the cross but he said you had to bear your own cross and follow him and endure till the end. I see none of you at the end.
Yes, absolutely. Even when I was dead in sins, the Father quickened me together with Christ, (by grace I am saved; ) and hath raised me and made me sit in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
