What is DOCTRINE?

Introduction I love working with kids, and I love teaching them hard concepts in ways they can understand. To that end, for years I have been working on a dictionary of theological terms for kids and teens. In sharing those definitions, there seemed no better place to...

If You Want It Done Right

In all likelihood, you know how the phrase ends: If you want it done right, DO IT YOURSELF! This is a bit of a mantra for me, and frankly, something that I struggle with daily both in leadership and in my Christian walk.  In theory, this is easy to accept. ...

What Does God Hate?

This is the little and humble post that started it all. I happened to be reading through my Bible, and this passage impacted me so much that I posted a little blurb about it on Facebook. That was July 28, 2008, and I've been writing and sharing ever since. (Maybe...

Six Ways to Persevere Through the Sluggish Times in Ministry

Have you ever had one of those days?  You know the kind – where you really aren’t “in to” what you’re doing and you feel like you rather be doing just about anything else.  What do you do when those times correspond to your time in ministry. I wrote this...

Monday Morning Prophecy #92 – The Messiah Would Thirst Prior To His Death

cross-picture

Introduction

The Old Testament prophesies that the Messiah would thirst prior to His death.

Old Testament Prophecy

My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death [Psalm 22:15 NIV]

They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst. [Psalm 69:21 NIV]

New Testament Fulfillment

Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him. And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. [Matthew 27:48-50 NIV]

One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down, he said. With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. [Mark 15:36-37 NIV]

Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” [John 19:28 NIV]

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. [John 19:30 NIV]
