Pastor Kong’s Sermon 23, March, 2013: From the Cross to the Throne

What happened on the cross?

Matt 27:51
The whole creation was shaken to the core when Lord Jesus died.
He cried out in pain and despair.
Psalm 22:1-6
God the Father placed the sin of the whole world on Him.
Jesus compared Himself with past people: the Father delivered them but not Jesus.
John 19:34
Lord Jesus died of heart attack.
However, the suffering in the spirit was infinitely worse.
For the first time, the devil gained mastery over Jesus.

Acts 2:31, Isa 53.
Lord Jesus went to Hades.
His appearance became so deformed as He was so twisted with sin and sickness of the human being.
God the Father laid all disease and sin human ever experience in past, present, and future on Jesus.
Isa 53:3-4, 5-6
God dealt with sickness first before sin. It doesn’t mean we’ll never be sick. It means we won’t succumb to it easily.
Isa 53:9
‘The death’ is in plural.
Ps 88:7, 16
God the Father poured waves after waves of wrath on Jesus.

2 Cor 5:21
Righteousness: ability to stand in God’s presence without any sense of guilt
1 Tim 3:16, 1 Pet 3:18 Col 2:15 Mark 3:27
Lord Jesus all of sudden became justified even in the Hades.
He then bound the devil and conquered him. He ascended to sit at the right hand of the Father.

Ps 68:1, Rev 1:18
Keys: authority. Lord Jesus rules over the devil, sin, sickness and death.

Matt 28:5-6.
Mary immediately recognized it was Jesus. Jesus went to meet the Father first.
Heb 9:12
He first took His blood and offered it to God the Father.

Eph 1:6
God the Father received Jesus lovingly as the Beloved. We too are accepted in the Beloved.
Maybe we can’t grasp the concept of ‘Beloved’.
Don’t give up on God. Even though bad situation happens, God still has one more move.

Heb 10:1-4, Rm 5:1
Old Testament is just a shadow.
The shadow can’t cleanse any sin. Blood of animals can’t cleanse sin.
When the veil was torn, God’s presence left the Temple and dwelt in human’s hearts.
There was no more need for earthly priestly ministry.

1 John 2:1, 1 John 1:9
Don’t remind God, self and others of past sin.

Acts 1:8, 11
Jesus went up in the cloud.
The cloud was the physical appearance of the spirit of OT saints (who had been held in Paradise/Abraham’s bosom).
The disciples were united in prayer until the Holy Spirit came. United house will stand, divided house will fall.

1 Cor 3:16
For the first time, the Holy Spirit dwelt in human hearts.
Lord Jesus is seated in heaven. We are seated with Him too. Hence, we shouldn’t give up in life.
