Bible study with Dr. Don Wilton and in reality we pray that every message is interactive and hear God's word we apply God's word to our own life and we see how it changes every single day. But today even more so Don can ask grandma juice or water Brad or cracker and celebrate the Lord's supper with us.
This is so much more than just tradition.
This is an opportunity for us to honor and to remember what Jesus is done for us. And as Jesus would say to Amber until he comes again as we study the word know that working for you as well with them to pray with you and 866-899-WORD 866-899-9673 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I will ask you to open your Bibles to Matthew chapter 26 you gonna need your Bibles today.
Let me just say this to you, Jesus had to die many people off that question did Jesus have to go to the cross did he have to die while the Onset to that is yes. The Bible tells us clearly so and so it is I'm going to read to you in Matthew chapter 26 just to say proceeding today and then I'm going to give you seven reasons that the Bible tells us that Jesus have to die we going to be going to seven different passages now folks listen to this. There is only one Onset to what we were experiencing God tells us in second Chronicles chapter 7 in verse 14 if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, then I will forgive then I will heal their land. Do you believe that God wants us prayer. I do this is Palm Sunday. The journey begins Jesus journey to the cross and the passage I'm about to read to you is the picture of Jesus taking his 12 disciples into the upper room and they he was going to celebrate with them costs over what is false over the children of Israel in bondage. The angel of was St. Bible all to kill all the firstborn in the house of Pharaoh, the means by which the firstborn did not die was they had to put the blood of the Lamb of the goalpost of their home. When the angel of death approached their home. He sold the blood of the Lamb. And he parsed over the home because the price had been played. Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God's slaying from before the foundation of the world and when he went to the cross, he shed his blood, in order that goalpost about hearts would be painted over with the blood of Jesus. This is the new covenant because of Jesus blood and when the angel please also visit he cannot take our lives because he parses over us because the blood of Jesus has given us each life in Christ Jesus.
Isn't that wonderful. Listen to what the Bible says in Matthew chapter 26 and I'm just going to begin reading at verse 20. So the disciples did as Jesus directed them and vapor. The parcel over when evening, he sat down with the 12 not as they were eating, he said assuredly, I say to you one of you will betray me and they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to him, Lord, is I the Onset he dipped his hand with me in the dish will betray me. The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed, it would've been good for that man if he had not been born. Then Judas was betraying him Onset and said Rabbi I Jesus said to him you have said it, and as they were eating, Jesus took bread, he blessed it, and he broke it and he gave it to the disciples and he said, take, eat, this is my body. Then he took the cup, and he gave thanks, and he gave it to them, saying, drink from it all and you this is my blood. Then you covenant, which is shed for the remission and forgiveness of sin is spine from now on. Not when they went to Dr. Don Wilton and he'll be back in just a moment to complete his message why Jesus had to die in just a moment but he insisted I remind you that we are here for you.

The Bible says Jesus went a little further and he fell on the ground and he prayed that if it were possible that the all my parts from him. And Jesus cried out and said Bob father, all things are possible for you. Take this cup away from me.
Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done that Jesus have to die. Yes he did. Number one because it was God's will for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. It was God's will.
My friends, you remember what the Bible tells us about ourselves.
Jesus said this to you and me. If you want to follow me. Jesus said you must deny yourself and take up the cross. Why take up the cross, because that is the very point at which God the son, gave his life in full and complete obedience to the will of the father. Isn't that amazing. He gave his life in full and complete obedience to the father. That's why Jesus looks at you and me and says if you want to follow me, you must deny your self lay aside everything concerning your own self. And furthermore, you must take up the cross, you have to become amalgamated and fused into the very sufferings of the Lord Jesus Christ gave himself willingly upon the cross because so loved the world, God loves you he loves you that much that he will Betty's son would go to the cross. That's how much he loves you and he loves me.
Jesus have to die.
Yes, look at Mark chapter 14 and verse 49 Mark chapter 14 and verse 49. This is what the Bible says Jesus looked at his disciples right there in the garden. Remember, they just fallen asleep when he and Brian remember this was the same place red God the son cried out to the father and said please take this cup from me. The top of my suffering. Nevertheless, not my will but find be done and Judas betrayed him with a kiss 30 pieces of miserable silver and they came and they arrested him.
The disciples didn't like that I were a band of protectors. One of them even took a sword and cut off the ear of one of the soldiers. Jesus Onset them.
Jesus had something to say to them they didn't want their Savior to be taken.
They couldn't write the manner with which these barbarians were treating that Lord I'm a monster but Jesus had something to say to them, and this is what he said in verse 49 I was daily with you my disciples in the temple teaching you and you did not seize me, but I'm being seized now in order that the scriptures might be fulfilled, the Jesus have to die. Yes, because the Bible is true. You know the Bible. Beginning in the prophets foretells constantly.
The prophet Isaiah, speaking under the inspiration of God, the Holy Spirit reminded us constantly of the coming Messiah, the one who would say tease people free everything in the word of God points to the Lord Jesus Christ. This which is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto out cloth Jesus have to die in order that the Bible could be fully and completely verified as absolute truth. You believe the Bible you believe God's word you can believe God's word.
It's absolutely true. God's word is true everything God's Word teaches us about God the father is to everything God's Word teaches about Jesus the son is true everything God's word tells us about God the Holy Spirit is true everything God's word tells us about eternal life is true everything God's word says about the love of God in Christ Jesus is true everything the Bible says about forgiveness is true everything the Bible says about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds to receive a Sunday himself is true everything God's word tells us about the coming judgment is true. Everything that God says about life is everything that God wants you to know is in this book. That's why Jesus died and he looked at them that day you seized him and those who protected him and said I have to do this in order that the scriptures might be from full why did Jesus have to die number three let's go to John's gospel chapter 19.
Turn with me in your Bibles to John's gospel chapter 19 going to read to verse 10 and verse 11 that we find Jesus standing before Pontius Pilate. Just think about this, Jesus was standing before the government.
He was standing before the Supreme Court. He was standing before that powerful lady that powerful man. He was standing here about in front of the world. The genius of the will, the science of the world.
He was standing in front of the technology of the world. The means of the world. The ability of the will, and it was pilot to said team in verse 10, he said. Or do you not know Jesus that you're speaking to me. He was affronted. This man pilot this man who carried governmental authority, the stamp or seal the approval of the Roman empire. This man looked into the face of Jesus the Christ was standing there before him as a lamb led to the slaughter. You not seem to understand you Jesus that you're speaking to me. You know who I am soon to what Jesus said Jesus Onset.
You have no power at all against me. Unless it has been given to you from the father above. Why did Jesus have to die number one because it was God's will. Number two because the Bible is true.
Number three because God is the judge God, not man look to God.
He's the determiner he is the originator. He's the giver he's the inspiring he's the adjudicator he's the process up.
He's out lava.
He's the one who's full of grace and mercy it's because of him. He's the judge the living and the dead. If my people who are called by my will humble themselves and pray and seek my face will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Jesus have to die yes because God is the judge but look at verse 17 Jesus have to die because no one else could pay the price.
Verse 17 of John chapter 19 the Bible says having been sentenced.
Accordingly, verse 17 and Jesus bearing his cross does what the Bible says my friend, for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son unique, one-of-a-kind Jesus have to die. Nobody else could pay that price. Nobody could take his place. Not the right sacrifice not the right offering church membership, not the cloth. We where not all the seminary training.
Not all the trophies and cabinets. Not all the decisions we make all the journeys we take only Jesus the only one who could pay the price. You're not going live under quarantine in the cave for the rest of our life and not because of a virus, but in order to try and pay the price for somebody else's sin. We can never do that because Jesus Christ can do that any did that by going to the cross. The Jesus have to die. Oh yes because all people need forgiveness let's go to Luke's gospel very quickly with me, Luke's gospel chapter 23 right there the end of Luke's gospel we going to be in Luke and chapter 23. The Bible says in verse 34 then Jesus said upon the cross, father forgive them for they don't know what they doing you know that the Bible says in Romans chapter 3 in verse 23 that all of us Epson and fallen short of the glory of God.
We've missed the mark because of the sin of Adam were all lost we dead in our trespasses and sins. Jesus died and when he went to the cross as the Lamb of God, he have to die. Jesus have to give his life. Why did he have to give his life because it is through the shedding of blood that we have forgiveness of sin. That's why he said he's got to give Weisbrod the life of Christ, the very life of God was given in order that you and I might have life Jesus after.oh yes my friend, because we all need forgiveness this morning and of lost empty auditorium with no human beings here. No friends here. I walked in and found myself kneeling in the presence of the Lord not found myself saying, Lord, right up front. Please forgive me, what right do I have to stand in this beautiful pulpit in this place right do I have, to be the preacher on The Encouraging Word broad cost across the nation. What right do I have to speak live streaming be on Facebook. What right do I have to say anything because I was so I know this. The Bible says if we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness to Jesus after.oh yes so Jesus died in order to forgive me, under my celebration yet to die for me as a believer in order to forgive me. I'm to the joy of my salvation.
Jesus have to die all yes yes my six point because Jesus is the only way to God. Look at chapter 23 of the book of Luke and verse 44 now does about the six all and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth and the sun was blocking than the value of the temple was torn in two. And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice he said father into your hands I commit my spirit and having said this, he breathed his lost. Why did Jesus die number six goes. He is the only way to God do not happen when Jesus died on that dark day on that hill called Calvary, right there at the temple. It was a temple in the temple there was a big curtain that separated the people from the presence of God according to the Old Testament.
Only the high priest could go into the presence of God. Remember Moses he was the only one who could go up sign-on meet with God and then come down from the mountain to meet with the people with the message from God, why did Jesus die. Jesus died so that the curtain would be torn from top to bottom. No man could do that and when the curtain was told.
The veil was lifted. The way was made possible all people, ordinary people no name people recovering alcoholic people, desperate people, people who are in fear. People who are looking for meaning people who don't know where to go. People who have everything people have nothing because we are all sinners. God made the way for all of us to be able to have full and complete access into the very heart of God. We are not justified by faith in and through the Lord Jesus Christ. Because God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to himself. The Jesus have to die all yes yet to die because Jesus is the only way one more Jesus have to die all yes indeed, because Jesus death is the very proof of the message which we preach the very proof of the message which we preach, you know, when Jesus appeared on the road to Emmaus. Often he had risen from the dead.
In Luke chapter 24 and verse 46. This is what Jesus said all three came back from the bid is 46. Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for Jesus Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day in order that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his nigh all nations everywhere. All people in your hearing it right now.
Jesus said repent and be converted in order that your sins may be taken out. No wonder Jesus took them into that upper room and he said I want you to remember my dates until I come again. I invite each one of you to participate with me, as Jesus the bonds of each one of us. I want you to take the bread, go ahead, take the bread through it right now. Get up from your seat serve your family so Jesus took the bread and he said this is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me. Let's eat together, my friends, the body of Christ, proclaiming Jesus death. He had to die until he comes again father as we eat this bread we give you thanks for your body which is broken for us. You took your disciples into the upper room and you showed them what we to must do and then off to supper he took the cup, Jesus said, take the cup because this cup is the new covenant.
This is my blood. I had to shed my blood. Why did Jesus have to shed his blood. Why did he have to go to the cross because it's God's will because the Bible is true because only God is the judge because no one else could pay the price because all people need forgiveness because Jesus is the only way to God. And because the gospel message which we preach is validated, it's proven true. Jesus said, take and drink and every time you drink. Remember mind if until I come again which drink together. Bless you, my dear friends as we close our worship today.
Bless you in the name of the Lord Jesus, I invite you to give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ today will you give your life to Jesus today. You can do it is simply just opening honestly to him in a simple prayer leader Pete right after me, Lord, God assumed my sin separates me from going the wrong direction. So I turned on back on my second and I ask you to save.
