“Did ~GOD~ Abandon ~JESUS~ On The Cross???”

What did ~JESUS~ mean when He said that ~GOD~ had abandoned Him???

This has always puzzled me, because if ~JESUS~ was actually [The Son of ~GOD~], then how could ~GOD~ abandon Him???

You are referring to some of ~JESUS’~ last recorded words, spoken while He was dying on The Cross:

“And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me???”

‭‭{Mark‬ ‭15:34‬ ‭KJV‬‬}

What did He mean by this???

Was He suddenly filled with doubt, wondering if He had misunderstood the mission ~GOD~ had given Him???

Was He filled with despair, concluding He was a failure and all His work was in vain???

After all [some have said], the crowds had turned against Him, and seemingly His ministry had come to an abrupt end…

But, in reality His words point to something far different. They point to the fact that when ~JESUS~ died on The Cross, all our sins—without exception—were transferred to Him. He was without sin, for He was ~GOD~ in human flesh. But, as He died all our sins were placed on Him, and He became the final and complete sacrifice for our sins. And in that moment He was banished from the presence of ~GOD~, for sin cannot exist in ~GOD’s~ presence. His cry speaks of this truth; He endured the separation from ~GOD~ that you and I deserve…

This is a profound truth—and yet it also should bring us great comfort. Because Christ died for us, we need not fear Death, or Hell, or Judgment!!!

The Bible says:

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit…”

‭‭{1 Peter‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬}

~GOD~ didn’t abandon ~JESUS~, and He won’t abandon you. Make Him part of your life today…
