THE BENEFITS
OF THE
CROSS
PRE-ENCOUNTER
THE INCOMPARABLE
CHRIST
 JESUS CHRIST
 The one person who has impacted
the world more than anyone else
 God Himself who chose to come
to earth and live in a human body
For you know the grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ, that though
he was rich, yet for your sakes
he became poor, so that you
through his poverty might
become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9
Since the children have flesh and
blood, he too shared in their
humanity so that by his death he
might destroy him who holds the
power of death—that is, the devil—
and free those who all their lives
were held in slavery by their fear of
death.
Hebrews 2:14-15
JESUS IS GOD
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with
God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a
servant, being made in human
likeness.
Philippians 2:6-7
JESUS IS HUMBLE
13 You said in your heart,
"I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of
assembly, on the utmost heights of the
sacred mountain.
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.
Isaiah 14:13-14
For everyone who
exalts himself will be
humbled, and he who
humbles himself will be
exalted.
Luke 14:11
 Jesus humbled Himself to
the point of dying on the
cross among thieves.
That’s is why God exalted
Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name
that is above every name
(Philippians 2:8-9)
JESUS IS THE
WORD MADE FLESH
Beyond all question,
the mystery of godliness
is great: He appeared in a
body.
1 Timothy 3:16a
The Word
became flesh and
made his dwelling
among us.
John 1:14
If Jesus is God Himself, then it is
worth getting to know Him and making
Him known because, as Scripture
says:
For whoever finds me finds life
and receives favor from the
LORD. But whoever fails to find me
harms himself; all who hate
me love death.”
Proverbs 8:35-36
He is the image of the invisible
God, the firstborn over all creation.
For by him all things were created:
things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones
or powers or rulers or authorities; all
things were created by him and for
him. He is before all things, and in
him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:15-17
THE POWER OF
REDEMPTION
 The redemptive work was
all done on Calvary’s
Cross, and each aspect of
the crucifixion teaches us
great lessons.
THE CROSS: THE
CANCELLED CURSE
 The Cross was where God took away
our curse so that He could give us
His blessing. All of our sin –
everything bad that we were – came
upon Jesus on the Cross. Everything
good that Jesus was, was passed on
to us through faith in Him.
I have been crucified with
Christ and I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me. The
life I live in the body, I live by
faith in the Son of God, who
loved me and gave himself
for me.
Galatians 2:20
THE CROWN OF THORNS:
FREEDOM FROM RUIN AND
OPPRESSION
"Cursed is the ground because of
you; - Genesis 3:17-18
 Thorns and thistles represent ruin.
Jesus took upon His head the
terrible oppression that had whipped
and beaten and oppressed mankind
for so long
THE WHIPPING OF HIS
BACK: OUR HEALING
 All disease, all pain, no matter how
great or how serious it may be, was all
cancelled upon the back of Jesus when
he was whipped and scourged.
..and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5
THE NAILS:
OUR FREEDOM
 After taking off all of Jesus’ clothes,
those who crucified Him hung Him on a
tree (the Cross). They opened His arms
and nailed each of His hands to the
Cross with sharp, cutting nails. Putting
both of His feet together, they
hammered in the third nail. Each one of
these nails has a very important
meaning.
NAIL 1: FREEDOM
FROM GUILT
 All the guilt that was upon your life,
which would have taken you to
eternal condemnation, was erased at
the Cross of Calvary. There is no
longer any need for you to feel
guilty; with the first nail, Jesus took
away the curse of guilt.
NAIL 2: CANCELED
ACCUSATIONS AND
ARGUMENTS
 ARGUMENT
 A legal right that you give to the
adversary (the devil)
 Formed by curses inherited from
one’s own family and through words
spoken by the parents – words that
leave a mark on their children’s lives.
“…having canceled the
written code, with its
regulations, that was against
us and that stood opposed to
us; he took it away, nailing it
to the cross.
Colossians 2:14
NAIL 3: VICTORY
OVER OPPRESSION
 This nail was hammered into the
part of the heel under the ankle.
 Jesus had put His weight on this
nail and get on His toes so that
he could inhale, because His
chest was extremely
compressed. Because this effort
always caused a sharper, more
intense pain to the tendon of the
leg, simple breathing was
agonizing for Him. But, His
suffering provided total victory
for us and we no longer need to
live under oppression.
THE SPEAR:
INNER HEALING
 JESUS suffered such agony on the
Cross that His sensitive heart
exploded. And Jesus is telling you “
My son, my daughter, my heart
exploded so that yours could be
healed and your emotions restored.”
 When God looks at us, He
looks at us through Jesus,
and when we desire to
communicate with the Father,
we should do that through
Jesus.
KEY PRINCIPLES TO
REMEMBER
 Eternal life is received when Jesus is
received as Savior
He who believes that Jesus has redeemed
him is freed from all oppression (Col.
2:14-15)
 The financial curse was
canceled when Jesus wore the
crown of thorns (2 Cor. 8:9).
 Faith in Jesus restores
families (Malachi 4:6)
 Only Jesus can free us from
the curse (Gal. 3:13).
 Because of the love of the
Father and through the blood
of Christ we were made free
(1 Peter 1:2)
 Jesus became man and, out
of obedience, He accepted
death upon the Cross, which
was a great humiliation.
Starting today, make
a decision to:
 Give Jesus your weaknesses so he
can take them upon himself.
Receive his strength in your life.
 Give up your sins through
repentance, which is the doorway
to His blessing. Receive His
salvation.
 Give up all sickness. Receive His
health.
 Give up all you lack. Receive His
provision.
 Give up all anguish. Receive His
perfect peace.
 Surrender your whole will. Receive
the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
 Give up your human knowledge.
Receive His divine wisdom.
 Trust completely in the grace of the
Lord Jesus Christ.
“I can do everything
through him who gives me
strength.”
Philippians 4:13
Colossians 2:6-7 (NLT)
6 And now, just as you accepted
Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must
continue to live in obedience to him.
7 Let your roots grow down into him
and draw up nourishment from him,
so you will grow in faith, strong and
vigorous in the truth you were taught.
Let your lives overflow with
thanksgiving for all he has done.

Pre Encounter Lesson 2: The Cross

  • 2. THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST  JESUS CHRIST  The one person who has impacted the world more than anyone else  God Himself who chose to come to earth and live in a human body
  • 3. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
  • 4. Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. Hebrews 2:14-15
  • 5. JESUS IS GOD Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. Philippians 2:6-7
  • 6. JESUS IS HUMBLE 13 You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. 14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. Isaiah 14:13-14
  • 7. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. Luke 14:11
  • 8.  Jesus humbled Himself to the point of dying on the cross among thieves. That’s is why God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name (Philippians 2:8-9)
  • 9. JESUS IS THE WORD MADE FLESH Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body. 1 Timothy 3:16a
  • 10. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 1:14
  • 11. If Jesus is God Himself, then it is worth getting to know Him and making Him known because, as Scripture says: For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:35-36
  • 12. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Colossians 1:15-17
  • 13. THE POWER OF REDEMPTION  The redemptive work was all done on Calvary’s Cross, and each aspect of the crucifixion teaches us great lessons.
  • 14. THE CROSS: THE CANCELLED CURSE  The Cross was where God took away our curse so that He could give us His blessing. All of our sin – everything bad that we were – came upon Jesus on the Cross. Everything good that Jesus was, was passed on to us through faith in Him.
  • 15. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
  • 16. THE CROWN OF THORNS: FREEDOM FROM RUIN AND OPPRESSION "Cursed is the ground because of you; - Genesis 3:17-18  Thorns and thistles represent ruin. Jesus took upon His head the terrible oppression that had whipped and beaten and oppressed mankind for so long
  • 17. THE WHIPPING OF HIS BACK: OUR HEALING  All disease, all pain, no matter how great or how serious it may be, was all cancelled upon the back of Jesus when he was whipped and scourged. ..and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
  • 18. THE NAILS: OUR FREEDOM  After taking off all of Jesus’ clothes, those who crucified Him hung Him on a tree (the Cross). They opened His arms and nailed each of His hands to the Cross with sharp, cutting nails. Putting both of His feet together, they hammered in the third nail. Each one of these nails has a very important meaning.
  • 19. NAIL 1: FREEDOM FROM GUILT  All the guilt that was upon your life, which would have taken you to eternal condemnation, was erased at the Cross of Calvary. There is no longer any need for you to feel guilty; with the first nail, Jesus took away the curse of guilt.
  • 20. NAIL 2: CANCELED ACCUSATIONS AND ARGUMENTS  ARGUMENT  A legal right that you give to the adversary (the devil)  Formed by curses inherited from one’s own family and through words spoken by the parents – words that leave a mark on their children’s lives.
  • 21. “…having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. Colossians 2:14
  • 22. NAIL 3: VICTORY OVER OPPRESSION  This nail was hammered into the part of the heel under the ankle.  Jesus had put His weight on this nail and get on His toes so that he could inhale, because His chest was extremely compressed. Because this effort always caused a sharper, more intense pain to the tendon of the leg, simple breathing was agonizing for Him. But, His suffering provided total victory for us and we no longer need to live under oppression.
  • 23. THE SPEAR: INNER HEALING  JESUS suffered such agony on the Cross that His sensitive heart exploded. And Jesus is telling you “ My son, my daughter, my heart exploded so that yours could be healed and your emotions restored.”
  • 24.  When God looks at us, He looks at us through Jesus, and when we desire to communicate with the Father, we should do that through Jesus.
  • 25. KEY PRINCIPLES TO REMEMBER  Eternal life is received when Jesus is received as Savior He who believes that Jesus has redeemed him is freed from all oppression (Col. 2:14-15)
  • 26.  The financial curse was canceled when Jesus wore the crown of thorns (2 Cor. 8:9).  Faith in Jesus restores families (Malachi 4:6)  Only Jesus can free us from the curse (Gal. 3:13).
  • 27.  Because of the love of the Father and through the blood of Christ we were made free (1 Peter 1:2)  Jesus became man and, out of obedience, He accepted death upon the Cross, which was a great humiliation.
  • 28. Starting today, make a decision to:  Give Jesus your weaknesses so he can take them upon himself. Receive his strength in your life.  Give up your sins through repentance, which is the doorway to His blessing. Receive His salvation.
  • 29.  Give up all sickness. Receive His health.  Give up all you lack. Receive His provision.  Give up all anguish. Receive His perfect peace.  Surrender your whole will. Receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Give up your human knowledge. Receive His divine wisdom.
  • 30.  Trust completely in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
  • 31. Colossians 2:6-7 (NLT) 6 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all he has done.
