You recognize the victory of the cross of Jesus Christ. Listen to Adrian Rogers prophecy across my bare friend, there's Dragon ever crawls but I thank God for Psalm 22 the tells us of the victory is all there water Psalm. It is Jesus Christ is presented in the Bible as profit breaks and came right here in these verses you going to see Jesus Christ as profit priest and king. My dear friend.

It was written in a book almost a thousand years before ever going one thing one is welcome to Leavenworth finding featuring the timeless messages in teaching pastor Adrian Rogers as we become students of the word we see clearly that the Old Testament and the New Testament tell the same story of Jesus.

The entire Bible expresses the fulfilled prophecy and united message that Jesus Christ alone saves in part one of today's message. We examined Psalm 22, as it greatly details the crucifixion of Jesus thousand years before he was born. If you have your Bible turn there now as Adrian Rogers shares part two of Old Testament Calvary look at your will. Now I began to read and solve 22 by God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me why art thou so far from helping man from the words of my roaring by all my God I cry in the daytime but thou here is not in the night season. I am not silent but thou art holy old that inhabitants. The praises of Israel, our fathers trusted in the bay trusted about us deliver them. They cried and they had were delivered. They trusted in the end were not confounded, but I am a worm and no man a reproach of man and despised of the people, all they that see me laugh me to scorn, they shoot out the lip. They shake my head saying he trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him, let him deliver him saying he delighted in him, thou art he that took me out of the womb. That is, make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon me from the womb, thou art my God for my mother's belly be not far from me, for trouble is me, for there is none to help many goals of compassionately strong bulls of Bashan and had beset me around. They gaped upon me with air miles as a ravening and a roaring lion. Note especially versus 1415 and 16.

I'm poured out like water, all of my bones out of John. My heart is like wax. It is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is brought up like a potsherd and my tongue clean with the mic jaws, thou has brought me into the desk of Dan for dogs have compassionately the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me. They peers. My hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones. They look and stare upon me. They parked my garments among them, and cast loss upon my best. First of all I want you to see what I would call a prophecy of the cross and I want you to see. As I've said, almost a thousand years before Jesus Christ was ever born almost 1000. There is an account of the crucifixion of Jesus. That sounds like an eye witness standing at the very cross of Jesus Christ.

For example, for example, the very words that Jesus Christ would say on the cross. Look, if you will, in verse one, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me. Take your Bible and turn Matthew 27 and leave it open and Psalm 22 and Matthew 27. Both of these together. Look, if you will, in verse 46 Jesus is on the cross and the Bible says about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice saying Eli Eli Lam us to botch than I that is to say, are you ready my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me the exact words that are recorded in Psalm 22 came from the mouth of the Lord Jesus.

What you say pastor that season.

Jesus just look back and read Psalm 22 and when he was on the cross he was quoting poetry. No my dear friend, Jesus was not looking backward quoting poetry.

David was looking forward quoting Jesus look, if you will, in verse 17. I may tell all my bones.

They look and stare upon me that is the Lord Jesus Christ is hanging that absolutely totally uncovered Jesus Christ who was perfect purity and undefiled modesty was stripped naked to hang upon that crawls the Bible tells us that that happened to him. In Matthew 27 verse 28 and they stripped him and put on him a scarlet robe and Matthew 27 verse 36 is in sitting down. They watched in amazing precision in this song and then look in verse 18. They parked my garments among them, and cast lots upon my best and read there in Matthew chapter 27 verse 35 and they crucified him and parted his garments, casting lots, that is rolling dice that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet David is called a prophet here now all I've done dear friend is take a few, not all but a few of the incredible correspondences between what David wrote. I am telling you one thousand years before the crucifixion. They pierced my hands and my feet. How did that come the past you think that is happenstance you think that just happened. No my dear friend that is the prophecy of the cross. Secondly, I want you to notice the agony of the cross. I want you to see the price that Jesus Christ paid for your redemption that you might be here today that you might be forgiven, but you might be saying that you might be filled with the Holy Spirit that you might have a hope that is steadfast in short, you ought to praise the Lord Jesus at how you ought to serve the Lord Jesus because of the suffering that he suffered.

No one ever suffered like the Lord Jesus Christ. Others were crucified, but nobody ever suffered by Jesus and I'll show you why Jesus suffered at the hands of three.

He suffered at the hands of God. He suffered at the hands of men. He suffered at the hands of Satan. I want you to see it right here in this Psalm. First of all he suffered at the hand of a holy God. Now look, if you will, in verses one through five. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me. Look in verse 15. If you will.

The last part of verse 15 God has brought me to the desk of Dan crucified the Lord Jesus God the father crucified him, God the father putting to death. You say I don't understand that Willa my dear friend when Jesus Christ became the sin bearer.

Then Jesus Christ took the same penalty and the sin penalty is death.

The wages of sin is death. You can read in Isaiah chapter 53 in verse 10 concerning the Lord Jesus, it pleased the Lord to bruise him. It pleased Jehovah doubly took to to bruise the Lord Jesus Christ and I read there in Romans chapter 8 and verse 32 that God spared not his own son, but delivered him up limited delivered it failed to spare him. God failed to spare him certain God for sucking him to the dust of death, God the father and he who had been in the bosom of the father from eternity past malice forsaken about father has become the object object of the father's wrath. In the center of the father's loathing, the son of God ever thought about what Jesus Christ took for you my dear friend Jesus Christ took your hail Jesus took your punishment. Jesus took the wrath of fire, hot upon himself.

No wonder he prayed in the garden of Gethsemane. Father could be possible let this cup pass from me, answer me, who crucified Jesus number one.

My dear friend, back of the cross. He died at the hands of God, but not with the hands of God. My dear friend, the holy hand of God, but also the hateful hand of man. Look, if you will, in verses six and following here. The Bible says that I'm a worm and no man a reproach of man and despised of all the people I am a firm is a worm. Jesus let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but made himself of no reputation. Have you ever gotten that low. Have you ever said yourself I am a worm worm worm made everything step in a snake you strike back step in a worm you just are.

The worm spoken of here probably was the Crimson crocus a worm when crushed, made God crimson the same word that is useful worm is used in Isaiah 118 JW come now, let us reason together say the Lord though your sins be us crimson same word issues, they shall be as well. Thank God is crimson blood far crimson sand that we might be washed wider and snow for he suffered at the hands of man. They stepped only like he was a worm like he was a worm very soon. Should the holy Bible tells us we better be very careful we don't trample under our feet. The precious blood of Jesus Christ. I don't know the greater sin than to deal lightly with the blood of Jesus Christ. Some years ago I heard about father who was a businessman at his desk.

He received a phone call, I said Sir we hate to tell you this but there's been an accident. A young man has been hit by an automobile. We don't have all of the details we believe is your son.

He said where is and they gave him the street: it was near his office.

He said I'll be right there. He ran out of his office, got in his automobile and drove to this particular place where his son according to reported been hit by an automobile.

When he got there he saw the crowds as they were starting to disburse. They said where's the bullet was hit where's my son someone not knowing the situation said oh you mean the boy was killed, is it what yes the boy who was killed he sick busy day and he said yes he said his attorney about what happens when a car heading right there and there was a pool of blood right there in the street blotting. He knows his son's blood mobiles barrel that busy street were driving right through that blood one car after another driving through that pool of blood. When that father looked at it and realized that was the blood of his own dear son he could take it ripped off his sets drive through my son's blood like that you can't do it blood of my son. I wonder my different what we do with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. We don't understand the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ Hebrews chapter 10 verse 29 of how much sore punishment. Suppose he shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the son of God an account of the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the spirit of grace. All my friends, Jesus the son of God, suffered at the hands of God and the holy hands of God, suffered at the hateful hands of man, and he suffered at the hands of Satan. My dear friend. Look, if you will, in verses 19 and following of the same Psalm we see here whole he says, be them up for me oh Lord, my strength face the to help me deliver my soul from the sword, my darling from the power of the dog Hills dogs save me from the lions mouth.

Who is the lion roaring lion, it is Satan himself thought about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour all of the artillery's appellant were let loose upon the Lord Jesus when he was on the cross all the powers of the work concentrated upon the Lord Jesus.

Luke chapter 22 verse 53 Jesus said when he was facing the cross, but this is your hour and then he said, and the power of darkness. What he meant was the power of Satan. The power of the enemy and Hal had a holiday and demons taunted and tormented the Lord Jesus when he was on the cross, God forsaken attacked by Satan, abused by man. Jesus suffered, Jesus Jesus died for you at the holy hand of God the hateful handyman hand of Satan. That's the agony of the cross and how can we sit on mood.

How can we ignore such love. Jesus paid that price for us to say, well, they really take my Haley was only there for six hours on the cross, my dear friend in six hours. Jesus suffered everything you'd suffer for eternity, he being infinite suffered in a finite period of time. What you being finite would suffer in an infinite period of time the sins of the world were distilled upon Jesus and eternities were compressed upon the Lord Jesus and the Bible says concerning him. There is no sorrow like my sorrow. No one ever suffered.

No one ever said no one ever suffered like chicks us know there's a prophecy of the cross, my dear friend, there's agony of the cross, but I thank God for Psalm 22 the tells us of the victory of the cross.

It's all there is all there. What want to Psalm it is man Psalm 22 in verse 22. The tone changes in the first 21 verses the Psalm is going down down down down and then all of a sudden it begins to rise and come up because there's a resurrection. Look at your will.

He says I will declare thy name and my brethren in the midst of the congregation I will praise the ye that fear the Lord. Praise him all he the seed of Jacob and glorify him and him all the seed of Israel Jesus Christ is presented in the Bible as profit priest and king, and right here in these verses you going to see Jesus Christ as profit priest and king as profit.

He declares the father looked in verse 22. If you will again he says I will declare thy name, God the son is speaking to God the father I will declare thy name, my brethren, you always talking about folks us less. His name in the midst of the congregation I will praise me, Jesus says, praise the father ye that fear the Lord. Praise him. Jesus is talking to you now. I hope you know how to praise them.

Jesus is saying he that fear the Lord praise and all you need. The seed of Jacob glorify him and fear him, all you see this rail then he says in verse 25.

My praise shall be of the in the great congregation. What is all this talking about the right of the book of Hebrews knew what he was talking about is putting your margin. Hebrews 2 verses 11 and 12 for both he that sanctified less Jesus and he that are sanctified are all of one that's us. We once were sanctified for which cause is not ashamed to call them brethren. He's not ashamed to call you his brother. I'm next of kin to the holy Trinity saying I will declare thy name and my brethren eyes quoting Psalm 22, in the midst of the church will I sing praise under they did you know when you gather here this morning to say that Jesus is out there singing to know that when I'm preaching Jesus is preaching when you're singing Jesus is saying.

He says I will sing praises if people only knew what was happening in the Psalm service. Jesus said in Matthew 18 were two or three are gathered together in my name and mine in the midst of them, Christ meets with his people. Christ sings with his people. Christ praises with his people.

He's the one who requires the father, he's the one who makes God the father really said I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh unto the father but by me.

So he is the prophet as the prophet, he declares the father but not only is he a prophet. He's a priest and as a priest. He delivers the faithful look in verse 26. The meek shall eat and be satisfied. They shall praise the Lord that seek him.

Your heart shall live forever. One is a priest in the offers the showbread that represents Jesus who is the bread of life and Jesus feeds his people all my different Jesus delivers his people.

He is here today to give you the bread of life is one who died for you is profit. He's priest and I love this next part all my dear friend.

He is keen as profit.

He declares the father has priest, he delivers the fateful but all my dear friend as prints. He dominates the future look at the will in verse 27, all the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord. Listen to it. Listen and all of the kindreds of the nations shall worship before the for the kingdom is the Lord the King's is profit to declare the father. He is priest home, my friend, to deliver the faithful. But he is a prince and a potentate. Oh my dear friend to dominate the future. People say what's the world coming to pate what world is coming to is coming to Jesus. Jesus owns this world was made by him and for him in the Bible says is coming back to them.

You read Colossians chapter 1 in the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ, and Jesus shall reign where the son, death or successive journeys run in his kingdom spread from shore to shore to move shall wax and wane normal.

He is profit to declare the father is priest to deliver the fateful he is. Prints to dominate the future's name is what Jesus don't you love him those you love him so much for you my dear friend.
