At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death penalty.

That was then the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals could die like Jesus. And with Jesus things were worst, because not all the criminals condemned to death could receive nails on their hands and feet.

Of course, nails... Big nails! Each was 15 a 20 cm long, with a point of 6 cm. Another point was sharp.

The nails were craved into the pulses, and not into the palms, as we are used to hear.. In the pulse, there's a tendon which extends to the shoulder, and when the nails were being hammered, that tendon broke, obliging Jesus to reinforce all the muscles of his back, so that he could breath as He was losing all the air from his lungs.

In this way, He was forced to support Himself onto the nail craved in his feet, which was bigger than those craved into his pulses, for both feet were craved together. And, as his feet could not endure for long time without tearing, Jesus was forced to alternate that "cycle" so that He could breath.

Jesus endured that reality for over 3 hours.

Yes, over 3 hours! Long time, isn't it? Few minutes before He died, Jesus was not bleeding anymore.

He was simply pouring water from his cuts and holes.

When we imagine Him injured, we only picture Him with injuries, but it is not enough; His wounds were true holes, made in his body.

He had no more blood to bleed, He only poured water.

Human body is composed of nearly 3.5 litres of blood (for adult).

Jesus poured all 3.5 litres of his blood; He had three nails hammered into his members; a crown of thorns on his head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who nailed a spear into his chest.

All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying his own cross for almost 2 kilometres, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where his hands were nailed).

Jesus had to pass all this experience, so that you can have free access to God.

So that your sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception! Don't ignore this situation. HE DIED FOR YOU! For you, who now read this e-mail. Do not believe that He only died for others (those who go to the church or for pastors, bishops, etc).

He died for you! It is easy to pass jokes or foolish photos by e-mail, but when it comes to God, sometimes you feel ashamed to forward to others because you are worried of what they may think about your morals.

Accept the reality, the truth that JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.

God has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced to save you. Now think about this! May God bless your life!

Yes, I love God. He is my source of life and my saviour. He keeps me alive day and night.

Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me". Philippians 4:13.

Jesus is the truth , the way and the light.
He is our living example to show how much God loves us.
We need to use Jesus as our beckons and not only focus that he died a horrible death.
Why did you die?
He died so all mankind may know how far he was willing to take the love of God.
We have to trust him
Rely on him
Jesus was able to defect his lower self and therefore unleash the love of God which is Christ.
He showed the way and the road is all bright for us to see.
Time for us to follow and stop looking at his death.
Why did he die.
He died to be the light of the world for all men to hear and to see.
Thank him for lighting the way.
Thank him for not giving up.
Thank him for revealing the love of God which is Christ.
So mankind can know the truth.
Thank the heavenly Father above for showing us so much mercy and grace.
Learn from yesterday, Live for today and Hope for tomorrow.
God loves us.
So lets love him in return.

Thanks so much for that reminder of what Jesus did for me, you and others. It reminds me to live my life each and every day to bring God glory. It reminds me to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to bring salvation and healing to others. It reminds me that I am His disciple, chosen by Him to carry on His message to the world. It reminds me to love others, just as He loved me...enough to give up His life for me. To God be the glory!!!
