Today, focus is upon the accusations and charges brought against Jesus, and why he was executed upon the cross.  Also, there is more on holy wars.  A writer at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Nully” (Level 1 with 66 points, a member since October 27, 2014) posted the following:

 

Quick question: why was jesus put on the cross? Which laws did he supposedly violate or what crimes did he supposedly commit?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Holy Wars? (11/06/2014)—(4.)  For Christian believers there is no glory to be gained through death upon a battlefield.  One establishes a relationship with divinity spoken of as “glory” by their living in service to GOD, and operating as a vessel of divine spirit substance.  Believers attain eternal fellowship with divinity only when Jesus Christ returns to harvest his followers from the earth (we say, resurrection) that will occur at his appearing. 

(5.)  The Gospel does not counsel conflict between communities, incite men to war against one another, or urge widespread destruction of life and property.  Yet, men are exhorted to wage war within the Self, and to establish mastery over body and mind by receiving the imparted spirit of GOD.  Ones flesh that may be controlled by an animal or sin nature must come under the rule of ones divine nature that is an aspect of the makeup of GOD.  Christian believers are to overcome such features as anger, appetite, conscience, deceit, envy, fear, imagination, and the tongue. 

(6.)  There is a holy war fought within the spheres of heaven recorded among the Scriptures.  However, only angels and devils participate in that sacred event.  Mankind has no part during the war in heaven except through the persons of Michael and Jesus Christ.   The devil and his angels do not prevail, and are cast out of heaven upon the earth.  Thus, the war begun in heaven must be finished upon the earth as the apocalypse and the war of Armageddon.  Consider again Romans 6:  1-23, 8:  1-39, and 12:  17-19; Ephesians 6:  11-13; 1st Timothy 2:  1-2 and 6:  10-16; James 1:  17-27; Revelation 12:  7-9, 16:  12-16 and 20:  6-10, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:  Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:  Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death:  because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.  For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:  Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:  Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.  Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.  Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;  He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.  This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.  (Acts 2:  22-32, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Jesus Scourged (04/05/2014); Brothers, Not Equals (04/06/2014); The Judges Who Condemned Jesus? (01/17/2014); About the Second Coming? (01/18/2014); On Judging Preachers as “Fake” (12/23/2013); Jesus Arose Bodily (12/24/2013)

 

“Nully”, Jesus was “officially” condemned by the Jewish high court for the religious crime of blasphemy, that was punishable by death.  However, the Savior could only be legally executed on their behalf by the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate.  Rome “officially” killed Jesus upon the cross for the political crime of treason against King Herod, who had been installed by Rome and served as monarch to pacify the Jews of the region.

Jesus had been accused of multiple capital crimes  described within covenant law that carried the death penalty along with attacks against Jewish culture, custom, and tradition.  The Jews of the Temple community brought every device of the law against his ministry as Messiah.  Jury-tampering, perjury and false witness also were used against him.  Thus, the many charges included conducting public worship without license, conspiracy to destroy the Temple at Jerusalem, practicing as a false prophet, devil worship, inciting riot, rebellion, sedition, self-promotion, sorcery, and working on the Sabbath.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  Many Christian believers now hold that the death of Jesus was at the hands of all mankind through the prevailing religious and secular forces of the day.  Rome is to be seen as the single authority (we say, One World government), that dominated all other cultures and nations, while the Jews at the Temple represent the one, true religion imparted to the earth from GOD.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
