Jesus Could not do it! (Alone) Luke 22
Did you know that there was one task that Jesus could not complete? There was one task, given to the Son of God, Jesus, the Anointed One, the Water Walker, the Miracle Worker, the Holy One, there was one task that He could not complete! Jesus began to see the plan that His Father was laying out in the Garden. It was at this point that Jesus began to sweat “Great drops of blood.” This is a real medical condition. It happens in extreme circumstances as the blood pressure reaches a dangerously high level in the human body. He goes to ask for pray support from His closest and finds them sleeping on the job. He returns to ask the Father to, “Take this cup from me.” But Jesus knows, this is the only plan of salvation that will work. Even though Jesus is not liking the plan that is unfolded before Him, He humbles Himself to the Fathers plan, ” Not my will, but Yours be done.”
The plan unfolds as suddenly, out of the darkness, torches could be seen. They approach Jesus as Judas, one of His own, betrays Jesus with a kiss, the kiss of death. We know they take Jesus and they arrest Him on the spot. They bound Him and they begin to beat Him. Slapping, punching, pushing and spitting on Him, a man, who has yet to be found guilty of any crime! The blood is now flowing from His mouth and nose. He reaches His “trial” and the ruler, there could find nothing to charge Him with, but under pressure of the religious elite, he orders Jesus whipped, in hopes this would satisfy them.
Now Jesus is becoming weaker by the minute. No sleep, beaten and bruised, they strap Him to a post. They take wooden rods and they begin to beat Jesus across His back. This is the man that they have yet to prove has done any wrong! They beat Him with rods to draw the blood to the top of the skin, in hopes that when the whipping begins, the blood would explode from Him. And explode it did!
They took a cat of nine tails. This is a leather whip that has 9 strands coming off from it that contain, glass, rock, and metal. They take this cat of nine tails and they begin the count down…39 times they unleash the power of the whip according to Jewish law. For you to better understand this, if 39 lashes were not enough, take that 39 and times it by the 9 tails of that whip. There is a possibility of 351 marks across the back of this one, innocent man!
The blood is now leaving Jesus body in massive amounts. That once high blood pressure has now been replaces with dangerously low blood pressure. They return Him only to hear the cries, “Crucify Him!” They take Jesus and they place upon His back a cross. A cross that is reported to weight near 80 pounds, 40 lbs per beam. They take Him and begin the final leg of this journey to Calvary.
As Jesus is carrying this cross, because of the lack of blood, no sleep, the beatings and stress, the Bible records that all of this became too much and Jesus falls under the weight of the cross! Imagine it! For the 1st time, Jesus cannot complete a task that His Father has given Him to do. He must carry this cross to that one hill to secure salvation for all mankind. But we find Jesus, buried under the pressure, and He was unable to complete this task….alone.
The Bible says, “One…” There was One man, One Simon of Cyrene as recorded in Luke 23. He did not come to be noticed that day. He never thought for one moment that he would be called out of the crowd. he was there with the thousands of others to just see the show, to see the Crucifixion of this man, Jesus.
Suddenly, Jesus, under the weight of this burden, drops the cross at the feet of this ONE man. This man is now forced to pick up this cross and help Jesus to secure salvation for the world. God was not requiring that one man to hang on the cross that day. No, just to simply carry a cross and to help secure salvation for the world.
God is requiring the same of us today. How do you think the message of the cross, salvation, will get to the world, unless you pick up your cross and carry this message to all you see? Jesus needs your help in securing salvation for our world! He doesn’t need you to carry a cross, physically, but He does need you to pick up the message, and show the world that you are not ashamed to walk that road. There was “One…” Will you become one? Matthew 16:24, “Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.”
Update On Last Months Meetings
What a great time we had in Burlingame KS. Where is that you ask? Exactly right. It is a small, forgotten town south of Topeka. It’s not unlike the hundreds of other towns out there. The Federated Church felt the call of God to do something for these youth in that area. Growing up in a small town myself, I know the dangers that can come when there is nothing good to occupy your time. These kids don’t have the luxury of city living, in that they really had nothing else to do but to eventually find trouble. It comes in the form of drinking, drugs, sex, you name it, it’s always there.
But suddenly the call went out. That one church was willing to put together a weekend that would be for them; The Extreme Fire Youth Rally. We had somewhere around 65-75 youth from the surrounding area show up. Understand this: No youth leaders were there! There are none. Now there were adults who had been helping these kids, and one gentleman who started a ministry to be with these kids, but no organized, church backed, youth ministers! I want to say that even though you may never know where this town is, our God had it right on His radar screen all weekend long. We saw 12 salvations. 15-20 re-dedications, and many hurts, abuses, pains, and broken hearts were set free, mended and restored by the power of the Spirit of God.
The first night, we had a couple young ladies who were obviously involved in a lesbian relationship, come to the meeting. At the end of the service, we had an altar call and were ministering to some of the youth. I asked these two girls to come forward. As they made their way to me, I could see it on their faces. They were getting ready for a fight. I’m certain that they have already heard it all! As they stood in front of me, I said, “God wants you two to know that He loves you.” They just stared at me, still waiting for me to give them the lecture on why they need to change. So, I said it again, “God loves you both, right here, right now, this very second, that’s it. He just wanted you to know that.” I thanked them and sent them on their way. The next morning we held services outdoors in the park. One of the girls approached me and asked if she could talk to me in private. We went over to the side, where she informed me that her and her partner had decided to end that relationship and not do that anymore! About an hour later, the other girl pulled me side and informed me of the same thing. Now that is the power of the Holy Spirit. As we continue to receive reports back, I believe that this town will not be the same. Thank you to Kirk DeMars, Jay Gill and all of those who volunteered to make a life changing difference.
We went down to Dixon, Missouri this last month to conduct a healing revival. Again, don’t know where that is? This church sits out in a field on a hill in a small town in Central Missouri. We started out on Sunday morning with the church attendance double in its normal size. People are hungry to hear the word concerning healing. I challenged them to go out and invite people to come to the evening service, and invite them, they did! I had gone back to the office to pray before church that night. We had 20 minutes before service started. As I went back, there were 10 people in the church. The pastor came back to the office a few minutes later and said, “I think the bus just showed up!” We walked out into a church with nearly 125 people in it! It could hold 150 if you smashed them in real good. People from the Assembly, Baptist, Methodist and other surrounding churches came to hear and be healed.
Over the next few nights, we saw relationships restored, bodies instantly healed of pains, sicknesses, diseases. On our last night, we had just prayed for a man who was not in attendance. As I was handing the service back over to Pastor, a group of ladies were on the phone, crying. The one holding the phone said, “Excuse me! I just received a call from my brother, that we just prayed for. He didn’t even know we were here. He called me and said that something happened, and his hip just made a loud pop, and came right back into place and he is up and walking again, right now!” Over the last two weeks, I have receive reports back of Dr conformation that cancer has disappeared from one man. One woman that had precancerous cells, that now cannot be found. One man had severe damage to his heart from a previous heart attack. The doctors had him in for a check up this last week, and the doctor said, ” This is not the same heart! There is little to no damage here!” We serve a mighty God!

Christ the Healer on National TV?
So much is unfolding, even as I write this to you. It is reported that TV, as we know it, will take a back seat to the computer age. I think we can all see this to be true in where we are, even today. Let me give you some examples:
Google’s advertising revenue is larger than that of the entire U.S. print industry. Amazons annual revenue is greater than half of the worlds GDPS. Amazon owns more North American E- commerce than Office Depot, Staples and Dell combined. In 1999: 38 million people had broadband internet. Today: 1.2 billion have it on their mobile phones. Facebook has nearly half of its 150 million daily visits from mobile. More people have a mobile subscription service than access to safe drinking water and electricity in our world today. More than 200 million tablets will be sold in 2013. A total of 14.3 trillion webpages are live on the internet. At least 23.1% of all U.S. internet traffic comes from mobile devices. With the popularity of Facebook, YouTube and all these forms of social media, it can take someone from obscurity, to overnight, world-wide fame in just one million clicks of a video! We have seen that the local TV antenna is on its way out and has been replaced with satellite TV, which is being replaced with special movie-type packages like Blockbuster and Netflix. Most people are watching these on their computers and even on their phones! How things have changed.
In all that, we have decided in order to better reach the world with the gospel message, we are going to have to make the changes necessary to keep pace with the times. I don’t like change! But, I also know God does change the times and the seasons. We are stepping into a season where our focus is not going to be TV as we have known it, but we are developing a Christ the Healer Web show. This still gains us access to the entire world and on multiple devices at the same time. It was reported to me that they watch us in India on their cell phones!
I know some of you are going to be very disappointed with this news. Many of you, as I, were waiting to get back on TV. I have to tell you, the behind the scenes are not what you always think it should be.
I’m not so sure I am comfortable with spending $4,800-$6,000 a month on TV, even IF I had that kind of money! We have had several people donate money for TV time but we have come gravely short of the goal. We have been able to keep our slot on our local station and reached out to other CTN affiliates to inquire of them picking us up on their stations and were successful to get on the air in Pensacola, FL. And we appreciate all your prayers and financial support to make this happen.
I now would like to lay this out for you and you can make a decision as to if you want to continue supporting us. The Christ the Healer program, in its new stages, will be a program that will air on your computer. Yes, the plan is to give you the same format in teaching, with the airing of the Christ the Healer TV show, but then we plan on coming on, to answer any questions you may have concerning the program. We also will “own” our own channel, where we can start to give you more than once-a-week viewing. We will have LIVE interviews, testimonies, teachings, broadcasts of the revivals we are in, and can start to bring you teachings from others who can feed into your life.
All of this will be interactive, where you will be able to comment and ask questions as we develop programs. Our plan is to build our own network that will be centered around healing and miracles, but not like anything you are seeing on TV today! This will be the real deal. You know I am a stickler for the word of God, no funny business around here!
We want to create a safe place for you to go when you need prayer, support and answers to questions. All of this will be at a fraction of the monthly cost of TV, with a much bigger outreach, into the hundreds of millions across the globe! As we develop, we intend to air 24/7. All of this will take time, of course, but we look to start with the basics before fall. We will secure our place on the web, with some secured time slots and begin to air Christ the Healer world wide again.
Now I ask you, will you continue to support us? Will you commit to give a monthly pledge to help us reach further than any TV could reach? I hope you will. You will not be disappointed.
