Life Size Cross Passion Week

Headline read, March, 29, 33 AD,  “Wanted Man Brought into Jerusalem on a Donkey receives Royal Welcome,  Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

 John 11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

Psalm 118:24-26 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. [25] Save now, I

beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. [26] Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

Friday before his death. March 27

 On Friday they then arrived at Bethany, a little village just east of Jerusalem. The chief priests and pharisees hoped that Jesus would come to the feast, and had laid plans to arrest Him (Jn. 11:55-12:1). Friday Evening–Six days before the Passover, Mary (sister of Lazarus)

anoints Jesus’ feet with costly perfume (John 12:2-11).


Saturday before his death. March 28

Jesus keeps the Sabbath in the traditional fashion with His friends.


Sunday before his death March 29

Jesus rides triumphantly into Jerusalem on a donkey fulfilling an ancient

prophecy (Zech. 9:9). The people welcome Him with “Hosanna” and the

words of Psalm 118:25-26.

Monday before his death. March 30

 Cleansing of the Temple (Mt.21; Mk.11; Lk.19).

On this day Jesus returns to Jerusalem (He spends each night in Bethany). On

the way He curses the fig-tree, a highly symbolic act. He then enters the

Temple and chases out the corrupt money-changers. This shows His Messianic

authority (My Father’s House) and fulfills another prophecy that implies the

Messiah will appear there suddenly and take possession of it. (See Mal. 3:1).

They then return to Bethany. On the way home they see the withered fig-tree.

Tuesday before his death. March 31

Jesus stops at the Mount of Olives overlooking the temple, and gives the Olivet Discourse.

On this day Jesus personally confronts the authorities and defends His claims

to be the Messiah.

Wednesday before his death. April 1

The Silent Day. After an exhausting day of controversy, Jesus more than likely spends this day

resting and visiting with His intimate friends.

Thursday before his death. April 2

On this day (and perhaps on the previous day) preparation is made for the Passover. Judas may have also utilized this time for his betrayal (Matt.26:1-5; 14-16; 17-19).

The Passover is celebrated on Thursday evening (Friday by Jewish reckoning) in an upper room. Tradition has it that it was owned by Mark’s parents. At the end of the Jewish feast, Jesus institutes the Last Supper (Matt. 14:12-26; Lk. 22:17-23). Sometime in the evening, after the Passover, Jesus and His disciples leave the Upper Room and go to Gethsemane, a place near the Mt. of Olives where it was a custom for Jesus to Pray (Matt. 26:36-460).

Friday when Jesus died. April 3

He was crucified between two thieves

Next week, “Not on the cross, Not in the Grave,” Sunrise Service at 7:30   Join us for light breakfast.

“ He’s Risen”                                         Worship Service at 9:30 AM .

Headline Reads,” Royalty Nailed to a Cross” April 3, 33 AD sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Historically royalty has been a birth right, a God calling, or an honor bestowed by man due to the ability to lead or conquer. Kings historically have been good and evil.

Today we explore the kingship of Jesus Christ. Born a king? Called by God? He was the conqueror of all time, past present and future. He accomplished more in one week than all the other kings could have accomplished together combining their achievements and the they spent on earth.

Last week standing at the foot of this old rugged cross I asked:

When he was on that cross:

“Where were the angels that announced his birth?”

“Where were the disciples and the multitudes that he taught?”

“Where was God the Father as he was abandoned on that cross?”

Time stood still as Royalty was nailed to a cross. The nails that were meant for me pierced his hands and feet. Praise was silenced to listen to the mocks of the predators. The battle seemed lost. The victim seemed to lose the quest. I know you are probably thinking, “Well he’ll be ressurected in three days,” but let’s not fast forward until we’ve examined what was accomplished on that cross. Here lies the greatest victory in history.

Pastor Builds Life Size Cross for sermon prop.

You’ll notice the purple we have on the life size cross this morning. What does it mean?  Was he a King?  Was he a warrior? Like Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”

Galatians 1:4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

 1 Tim. 6:15   Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

The Rest of the Story

 Rev. 4:1-2  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.(2)   And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

Beyond Human Thrones

 Isaiah 6:1   In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Royalty Revealed in Daniel’s Day

Daniel 7:9  I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

Worthiness of the King

“The Legacy of the Cross” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 03/18/12

“The Legacy of the Cross” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge  03/18/12

 Jesus’ cross is still relevant even in year 2012. If it could talk, it would speak volumes on sin, pain, torture, agony, and even greater it would tell about the love that it came to represent.

How could Christ take such an evil device and turn it into a symbol of hope, faith, life and forgiveness ?

Pastor Builds Life Size Cross for sermon prop.

 The cross has remained the main emblem of Christianity for almost 2000 years.

In today’s sermon I’d like to share a message about a few words, spoken from that cross. These words have changed our lives,  our history on earth and our destiny in eternity.

I’d like to begin by introducing you to the old rugged cross. This cross I built up in the barn. Some of our men helped me stand it up in the church.  Notice the script at the top, the spikes, the feet mount, and the rope straps. 

As I built this old cross on the floor of our barn, I laid on it and reached for out for the two spikes. I did this to  measure for the foot prop where Christ’s feet would have been nailed.  I’ll have to say I got a little choked as I laid there for a moment just wandering why God loved me so much that he would take my place on the cross. No one should ever again be allowed to suffer such a barbaric cruel death. I guess that’s what the Bible meant when it said “Christ died once and for all.”

Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to  the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 Rev. 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Galatians 3:13-14  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: [14] That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

 Mark 15:34    And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Luke 23:32    And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

Luke 23:34    Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:43    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Luke 23:46  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

John 19:23    Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

John 19:26    When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

John 19:28-31

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. [29] Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. [30] When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said,: It is finished and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. [31] The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

“Headline Friday April 3, 33 AD “Innocent man dies claiming to be God”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

At every crime scene there are victims and violators. In the case of Christ’s death there were many violators but only one victim. Was he however a victim or a victor, the judged or the judge , was he God, or a godless fraud? What is the evidence?

Who killed Christ? 

  • The Jews?
  • The Romans?
  • The Mob?
  • The Law?
  • Was it suicide?
  • Was it Judas?

 The blood found at the crime scene, at the foot of the center cross, in a CSI series would have confused every lab investigator. The DNA on the father’s side would show no traceable beginning as Jesus, born of virgin birth, was conceived of the Holy Spirit. On the mother’s side however the DNA would link to a line of kin tracing the victim back 1000 years to King David and continuing back almost 2000 years to Abraham.

King David predicted 1000 years before it happened:

 Psalm 69:21 they gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Then over !000 years later an eye witness details how it happened. We are today 2000 years later reading  Matthew’s eye witness and  the details are still relevant.

Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

  •  Every investigation certainly would determine a cause of death.

Was it the crown? Was it the spikes? Was it the beating? Was it the spear thrust in his side? Was it humiliation? Was it a broken heart?

  •  There would be vinegar traces but very little saliva mixed with the blood found on the ground.
  •  Was he poisoned from gall?

 Hebrew 7218 (ro’sh); a poisonous plant, probably the poppy (from its conspicuous head); generally poison

  •  The investigators would be pondering the motive.
  •  Then the investigators would call the witnesses but most of them are in hiding.
  •  The body then buried is under Roman soldier guard.
  •  Is the evidence being hidden?
  •    Is the crime scene contaminated through the cover up?
  •  “According to our law he ought to die.”

John 19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

  •  The body that was buried was mutilated anyway. What evidence could you find in such a corpse?

Isaiah 52:14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

Isa 52: 14 NLT Many were amazed when they saw him–beaten and bloodied, so disfigured one would scarcely know he was a person.

  •  Who was the victim?

Son of Joseph and Mary? A Great Prophet? A son of God? Religious figure that exist only if you believe he existed but historically never lived?  or maybe just a wreckless sware name people chose to use? , or was he God, to  which  every knee will bow? Your eternity may rest on how you answer this question.

Luke 1:35  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

1 John 4:9-11 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. [11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

2 Corinthians 5:21 “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”.

  •  Was justice carried out?

Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Peter 1:18-21   Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: [20] Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, [21] Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

Romans 5:1   Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

What’s your verdict?

Was Jesus God, or an imposter?
