The Scars In The Hands of Jesus

There is an incredible Bible prophecy that foretold, more than one thousand years before Jesus died upon the Cross of Calvary, that, in crucifying Him, they would pierce His hands and His feet. “THEY PIERCED MY HANDS AND MY FEET.”    Psalm 22:16   (A Psalm of David)

Jesus will ever bear those scars, as tokens of His great love for us, in giving His life as a ransom for our souls.  It is only through those wounds in His hands, feet, and side, and the shedding of His blood upon the Cross, that every soul who is saved in God’s Kingdom will be able to attribute their eternal salvation. But did you know that there will also be many souls in the Kingdom who have never, while on this earth, heard of Jesus’ death for them upon the Cross, and who will then have to ask Jesus about the meaning of the scars in His hands? But first, let us see how the scars of Jesus were received:-

“And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe.”    John 19:2

“And He bearing His Cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.”    John 19:17,18

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”    Isaiah 53:5

“But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they brake not His legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.”    John 19:33,34 Read the rest of this entry
