If you look closely you'll find Jesus recorders Scripture Adrian Rogers cannot read Psalm 22 always got loving about not loving the Lord Jesus Christ is Psalm 22 zero after say all about Jesus know where my struggle that still just as one of them trying to tell you it's all about Jesus. Welcome to love worth featuring found truth simply stated by Pastor Dr. Adrian Rogers, the Old Testament and New Testament tell the same story of Jesus Christ. The entire Bible is about Jesus and the fulfilled prophecy of his salvation. For instance, Psalm 22 greatly details the crucifixion of Christ thousand years before he was born its prophecy, passion, and provision. How can this be if you have your Bible turn there now is Adrian Rogers begins. Part one of it's all about Jesus. Now the entire Bible is about the Lord Jesus Christ. The word of God is written to help you to love the God of that word. And his son, who is Jesus Christ. And when you know that it will wager to worship. I will remind you that worship is the bottom line is the highest attainment you can reach as worship where say not so will miss Helen go to heaven. That's a byproduct. Chris say don't worship God.

Salvation is more than having our sin forgiven. It is coming to a relationship where we can know God intimately and personally for ourselves, not in Psalm 22 we have an amazing story when you study Psalm 22. Listen carefully church you're going to come away loving God and loving the word of God more than perhaps any other chapter in the entire Bible.

I say well that's not without hesitation, without exaggeration that it is an in chapter the word of God. You cannot read Psalm 22 and hallway not letting the Bible and not loving the Lord Jesus Christ as you read Psalm 22, you'll have to say it all about Jesus know where the pastor that's the Old Testament that's one of them trying to tell you it's all about Jesus. It's all about Jesus must make some simple points. First of all I want you to see what I'm going to call the amazing prophecy of the cross, he will. For example, in Psalm 22 verse 16 for dogs have come past me. The assembly of the wicked have enclosed me now listen to this great peers. My hands and my feet.

Now this was written almost 1000 years before Jesus Christ walked the dusty shores of Galilee 1000 years ahead in time. The psalmist David and prophecy wrote of the cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Now, crucifixion was a Roman fool of execution. It did not come into the Jewish world for 800 years in the Bible and David's time when they executed people. They did it by spelling but here we find by divine inspiration or prophecy of the cross.

They peers. My hands and my feet not keep Psalm 22 open and I want you to see how Psalm 22 is written by divine inspiration is the one is standing at the very foot of the cross and giving an eyewitness account number one. The very words that Jesus would say on the cross look in verse one to be chief musician Alcon.

Ideally chef are a Psalm of David by God, my God, why has thou forsaken me well so far from helping me to and from the words of my roaring now. David prophesies Messiah all across saying my God, my God, why has thou forsaken me. Now I don't want you to turn to these blog given to you. Just put the minimart and saw Matthew 27 verse 46 and about the ninth hour Jesus Christ with a loud voice say Eli, Eli Lama, Suboxone eight that is to say, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me Jesus was not looking back, quoting David to the contrary. David was looking forward quoting Jesus. It is an amazing prophecy, psychedelic not only the words that Jesus would say, but the supernatural darkness that was upon their when Jesus was crucified looking Psalm 22 verse two. Oh my God I cry in the daytime, but valve is not and in the moonlight season and I'm not silent. That is when Jesus was on the cross. It was both day and night. Put in the larger Matthew chapter 27 in verse 45 now from the six there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour Jesus for six agonizing hours upon the cross by Jesus Christ was crucified at nine in the morning and indicted three in the afternoon but it became midnight and hymen, a part of the time the Jesus was on the cross.

It was day, another part.

It was night three hours of day and three hours of night when Jesus was crucified. You think that by happenstance that David was able by prophecy to say that a thousand years before Jesus Christ was born the son that it looked down upon such mayhem. Such filth. Such murder. Such adultery, such medication and perverseness United States and refused to shine when Jesus, the Lamb of God died by since the words that Jesus would say not only the night of darkness that would be there when Jesus would be crucified. But the scorn and ridicule by the son of God would receive upon the cross look now in Psalm 22 verses seven through 13. All they that see me left me to school they shoot at the they shake their head say he trusted the Lord that he would deliver them, let him deliver him saying he delighted in him, but thou art he that took me out of the womb. That does make me hope when I was upon my mother's breast.

I was cast upon the from the womb, thou art my God for my mother's belly be not far from Mayport probably is me. What is not to help many bulls have compassionately strong bulls of Bashan and had reset me around, they gave up on me with their mouths as a ravening and a roaring lion and that's what David said a thousand years before Jesus was on the cross. Now let me assure you that was fulfilled. Putting a margin Matthew 27 versus 39 and following day that passed by reviled him in wagging their heads and saying, thou that destroys the temple and notice it in three days, save myself if I'll be the son of God from the cross. Likewise also the chief priest blocking him with the scribes and the elder said he saved others, himself.

He cannot say if he be the king of Israel letter Malcolm down from the cross and we will believe him. He trusted in God, let him deliver him now if he will have him, for he said I am the son of God.

The thieves also which were crucified with him cast the same in his team. David prophesies this: and became Moses that around like strong ambitious goals. Imagine the Roman soldiers who were there. They look upward at Jesus on the cross. When you look upward, the job becomes unhinged in the mouth gate. David said they would gape upon the Lord Jesus Christ by way let me say this that these prophecies were not fulfilled by Jesus friend, but by Jesus enemies, for the most part now. Fourthly, thinkable water. They came from the side of Jesus Christ with that wicked sphere pierced his beloved son looking Psalm 22 now I look in verse 14. Messiah says I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax is melted in the midst of my bowel Jesus is saying. My heart is broken and I am poured out like putting your margin now. John 19 verse 34 but one of the soldiers with a sphere pierced his side and forth with there came out blood and water minute medicine Telus that sometimes under great duress. This can happen. It was a sign that our Savior died, not primarily from the nails but from a broken heart.

All the pain of the Lord Jesus Christ that is indicated when blood and water came from his wounded side when I thought about this. I had to ask myself this question Adrian knew the things that broke the heart of Jesus break your number five is bones twisted out of joint. Notice again verse 49 poured out like water, and all loan. Rather, Joe. Josephus the historian said that when a person was crucified and they drop that cross into a socket with a thought their arms are twisted out of joint River had a dislocated bone when they crucified him. His body is mercilessly distorted paying on that cross bones twisted out of joint. Number six when Jesus was all that cross. He had a blistering thirst, David. Looking forward down the centuries prophesied incredibly look in verse 15.

My strength is dried up like a punch you in a pot securities is a dry broken vessel and Mike Tom Cleaver to my jaw's thirst, blistering thirst dried up like a broken vessel with his tone dry pleading for his jaws put down in your margin.

John chapter 19 in verse 28 that is Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said I the one who made the oceans the rivers the reels and screens.

The rain hanging up on that cross cries out. I thirst prophesied. I say listen church ¥1000 before it happened. David by divine inspiration, dipped his cannon golden glory and describe the crucifixion number seven the very agents of the crucifixion are prophesied by David and described by him go again. Psalm 2215 less at verse 16. My strength is dried up like a potsherd and Mike Dunkley with the my jaws. I what's this and bowel underscore that. And thou has brought me into the dust a bit now look in verse 16 for dogs have compressed me now continue the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me thou dogs the assembly. These are the ones who crucified the Lord Jesus. First of all got the fall, thou has brought me to the dust a bit now. We say more about that later because there's something in human nature that is repelled by that that God had any him in the crucifixion, but then also he talks of dogs on common term for Gentiles in that day with all their called Gentile dollars, so he speaks not only of the Almighty, but he speaks of the Gentiles. And then he speaks of the assembly of the wicked bear he's talking. And in verse 16 about the Jewish Council and those were the ones who made the Lord Jesus to the cross, crucified Jesus upon the cross. Well, God the father Gentiles and your system. All of this foretold by David centuries and centuries before Jesus came closer number eight. Jesus was stripped of his clothing. Anyhow, make it up on the cross. Now the artist have been kind, and Jesus is painted always with some kind of a loincloth because we feel that is fitting.

But look at verse 17.

I may tell all my bones. They look and stare upon me without a new margin. Matthew 27 verse 28 and they stripped him and put on him a scarlet robe now quit Matthew 27 in verse 36 there and sitting down. They watched a man is not attempt to protect his modesty, but Darlington son of God. Absolute purity is hanging making on the cross stripped hanging there in agony. That's a reason for inducible. You should never ever be ashamed to stand up for Jesus. Whereas people are you willing to come forward and acknowledge Christ as your personal savior similar so many people Jesus hung make it on the cross before bigger crowd than this, and the amazing thing is that it was prophesied thousand years before he came in the flank. What amazing the number nine.

They cast lots for his garments. Look, if you will, in verse 18, Psalm 22 verse 18. They park my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. Now the Jews of that day. He had four minor garments and one major government they could distribute before minor garments among the Roman soldiers. But Jesus wore seamless row. They didn't want to tear that and split data so they cast lots to decide who would get that seamless row. Now notice verse 18. They park my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture, my clothing was a girl is what it means they look at Matthew chapter 27 in verse 35 and they crucified him and parted his garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet. They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots that tells us beyond a shadow of a doubt upper adventure that David was talking about the crucifixion of thousand years before Jesus Christ was born in the flesh is that not amazing. Are you as excited about this as I are you astounded by the efficacy of the word of God, the ancient Egyptians who built the pyramids used to say.

We built like giant, but we finish by two words. That's what God's old friend the great gigantic things that he is done but the minute detail of the cross and what I have said thus far is I've talked about the amazing prophecy of the cross nine going to shift gears. Next I want to talk about the agonizing passion of the cross.

There is no suffering that can even begin to compare to the suffering of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ upon that wicked cross I remind you again that Jesus suffered at the holy hand of God. Now look again in verses one through five. My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me why art thou so far from helping me verse two. Oh my God I cry in the daytime about here is not in the night season. I'm not silent. That is, he's crying out to deaf ears. In verse five, our fathers trusted you, they were delivered. They trusted and they were not confounded why God turned his back on the sun God the father is back on our Lord and his humanity. Why listen Baker because Jesus Christ willingly voluntarily vicariously took upon him the sin of all humanity. That answer to why God turned his back on Jesus is found in verse three but thou art holy Habakkuk says of God the father. He is a purer eyes than the look upon iniquity and when Jesus Christ at all of the violence of the sin of the world upon him. God the father had to treat Jesus as he would credence and so that's the reason Jesus says my God, my God, has thou forsaken me when I read this, my heart is deeply moving because Jesus hung make it on the cross, suspended between heaven and earth… Church.

He died alone alone between heaven and earth. Without the help of God the father. When David wrote this all wrote the next Psalm Psalm 23. David could say yay though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for thou art with me, not the son cannot say thou art with me dad to say, my God, my God, why has thou forsaken me Jesus walk that lonesome painful agonizing Valley all by himself again. I asked the question why did God the father during his back on God the son, and his humanity.

It is because Jesus Christ good man in the bosom of the father for all eternity is now not only alienated from the father.

Listen church. He has become the object of her father's wrath is I don't understand that test you have to understand that he is a substitute he is taking your place, and therefore as you would become the object of the father's wrath. Jesus is the object of the father's wrath. Look at the last part of verse 15 he speaking to a father and says thou hast brought me into the dust a bit. Isaiah the prophet, help us to understand it even better.

In verse 10, it pleased the Lord to bruise him.

He had put him debris. There is no escaping God the father bought out his wrath upon his beloved son because his beloved son was our sacrifice Romans eight verse 32, says God spared not his son.

Both my sons are in the ministry. If you ask me when you give me one of your sons that I might butchering torturing. I would say none absolutely not to say that it might save me and I can be forgiven. I still wouldn't do it. I'm ashamed to say I don't love you that much. I love anybody that much but God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. He did not spare Jesus that he did not spare Jesus because Jesus had my senior seminar send their sin upon your reason you think, therefore, that God will spare you if you don't receive Jesus that if you don't put your faith where God is put your sin being reasonable church. If there were ever a time when God would've been tempted to be lenient upon sin was when that Sam was upon the Lord Jesus.
