“Help Me Believe In the Cross”


Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus instituted a memorial of his death. Following the pattern of the earliest Christians, we share in this observance every first day of the week (Acts 20:7). To help prepare our minds in appreciation for what our Father planned from before the foundation of the world (1 Pet 1:20), we want to think of how God was foreshadowing events surrounding the cross and the coronation of Jesus long before the Messiah stepped foot on this earth. In doing so, we will expound upon the following prophetic and typological passages which also “Help Me Believe In the Power of the Cross”
