Our Suffering Savior
Looking backwards to look forwards.
Psalm 22 13-27
13 Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? 14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. 15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. We follow a holy and powerful God. 16 The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed. 17 The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth. 18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked. 19 Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen. 20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. Truth removes doubt and ignites our spirit. Psalm 22:16-18 A God-given picture of the crucifixion.
Psalm 22:19-21 Now we get the final prayer of this man of suffering. The sword- The authority of the Roman government The mouth of the lion–The satanic forces The horns of the wild oxen–A final cry for help (Luke 23:46b)
Psalm 22:25-26 He will give us what we need through resurrected power.
Psalm 22:27-28 The fulfillment of Jesus’ great commission that His Gospel shall be preached to all nations.
Psalm 22:29-31 It is finished.
