not his mouth:
he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep
before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Abraham told Isaac God would provide “Himself a Lamb.”
( Gen. 22:8)
BUT, on the day Abraham went up to the mountain with Isaac,
God provided a “ram.” (Gen. 22:13)
God’s “Lamb” would come later.

Centuries later, John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him.
He testified, “Behold the Lamb of God!” (John 1:29)

This “Lamb” was a PERSON: God incarnate!
This “Lamb,” and ONLY this “Lamb”
can take away “the sin of the world!”
He is the "Lamb of God" Who determined to
offer Himself for our sins BEFORE the world was
created!! (Rev. 13:8)

At 3pm on Passover Friday, the High Priest was to offer a
“lamb” for the sins of the people.
It was on that day, at that hour, that Jesus
“yielded up the ghost...” ( Matt. 27:50).

On that day God paid God the price of man’s salvation –
His OWN blood!
That blood is the ONLY righteous and acceptable price for
the sins of all mankind.
On that day God provided man ATONEMENT!
For your life is not bought with gold or silver,
"But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb
without blemish and without spot:"
(1Pet. 1:19).

And the Bible explains that at that SAME TIME:
“the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to
the bottom!” ( Matt. 27:51)

That great veil which separated the Holy Place from the
Holy Of Holies in the temple was RIPPED!

No longer would little lambs be needed for sacrifice!
The way is NOW OPEN to God’s Holy Presence through JESUS!
YOU can come to God in prayer ANYTIME through
surrender to Jesus as Lord!! ( Heb. 4:15-16)

It certainly was not good that man crucified his God!
But it was good that God was willing to pay that price
for our salvation!

And THAT is why it’s called GOOD FRIDAY!

Love ya!
