A few of the many contrasts before/after Christ's victory on the cross. Jesus THANK YOU for enduring Friday to bring us to Sunday!

 

Friday

Sunday

He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. (Isaiah 53:2-3)

The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. (Revelation 1:14-16)

The written notice of the charge against him read: THE KING OF THE JEWS. (Mark 15:26)

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (Rev 19:16)

And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”) (Mark 15:34)

Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God's throne. (Hebrews 12:2)

With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. (Mark 15:37)

I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! (Rev 1:18)

one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people (Romans 5:18)

one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people (Romans 5:18)

For as in Adam all die, (1 Cor 15:22)

so in Christ all will be made alive. (1 Cor 15:22)

I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside (Revelation 5:4)

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders…He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. 9 And they sang a new song, saying:

 

   “You are worthy to take the scroll

   and to open its seals,

because you were slain,

   and with your blood you purchased for God

   persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. (Revelation 5:5-9)
