Jesus predicts his death a third time
Would you like to know when and in what way you will die? 😯
Jesus knew it! In his words he shows how aware he was of all the suffering he would experience. Why did he go ahead and didn’t avoid it?
Only his sacrifice would allow the forgiveness of our sins and give us eternal life through faith. Only his agonizing suffering frees us from our deserved eternal suffering:
“The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hadeswere thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:13-15
“And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelation 20:10
God is love. His love was manifested in the sacrifice of Jesus to save us even though we did not deserve it; but He is also Just and in due time will judge.
And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.” Revelation 16:7
