Nisan 14 is when Jesus died. What was it like during his last three steps and last breath. Try to envision this.


The Last Three Steps and Last Breath of Jesus
It must have been a trying time for Jesus to die for a sinful world
To make for forgiveness for every man, woman, boy and girl
To be tried as a criminal so innocent and without guilt
For he was sent to make it better for wayward mankind that GOD built.
The last three steps to his crucifixion must have been pure agony
Knowing his integrity was on the line for you and me
Would he fulfill or deny prophecy
Of laying down his life faithfully?
Such a burden weighed on his shoulders
Like dense weights and huge boulders
Yet God gave him strength to endure
And he prayed for the Holy Spirit to keep him strong
Without faltering to Satan’s lure.
With labored breathing from toil and strain
He continued his journey even through pain
For God’s Will was in the balance and stayed on his mind
That he should give his life for all mankind.
The agonies of the day weighed heavy as he carried the stake
But he was righteous and would die for mankind’s sake
The last three steps would bring him closer to his goal
To redeem mankind by giving his soul.
Let us remember and have the mind of Christ these days of remembrance
And not let everyday matters be a hindrance
But take to heart Jesus’ last three steps
And his last breath and tears from his eyes as he wept.

May we all have a better understanding of the pain and suffering that He bore for all. Perhaps then we will all appreciate the little aches and pains we have from time to time and know that THe Lord is with us through it all.

Thank you for this masterpiece.

Praise The Lord!

How he suffered, the torture he was put through. I wonder sometimes which one of us would do the same.....

Be always safe,

This touches me deeply. I too have often wondered what Jesus was thinking on His last few steps to Calvary. What a tremendous weight on His shoulders, all of our sins on one Man. Thank you for this poem, Tommy. God bless you.

Many blessings,
