JESUS’ DEATH ~~ 60 SECONDS ~~

A STUDY ON THE NAILS IN OUR LORDS HANDS OR WRISTS

For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever
you’re doing and take this opportunity!
Let’s see if Satan can stop this…

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS

At the  age of 33,
Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the  time crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied…

Each  nail was 6 to 8 inches long.

The  nails were driven into His wrist.  Not into His palms  as is commonly
portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder.  The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the
Wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back
muscles to support himself, so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross.  Jesus could not support himself with His legs for long because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back and using his legs just to continue to
breath.  Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.
Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water
from his wounds.

From  common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side…  But do we remember the many wounds
made to his body.  A hammer driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped and a nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing  His side with a spear. And… before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten.  The whipping was so severe that it tore the
flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns (two to three inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.

He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds.  The
human adult body contains about 5 liters (just over a  gallon) of blood.

Jesus  poured all 5 liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His
body; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest..

All  these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd  spat in his face and threw stones (the cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you may have free access to God.

So that your sins can be “washed” away.
All of them, with no exception!
Don’t ignore this.

JESUS CHRIST DIED…FOR YOU!

For you, who now read this e-mail.
Do not believe that He only died for others
(those who go to church or for pastors, bishops, etc).

He died for you!
It is easy to e-mail jokes or silly photos, but when it comes to God,
sometimes we feel ashamed to forward a message about Him on
to others.
We are worried of what they “may think.”

Accept  the reality, the truth, that JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.

God has special plans for YOU!
Share this with all your friends…
about what He went through to save you.
Really think about it!

May God bless you!

For the next 60 seconds,
set aside what you’re doing and take
this opportunity! Let’s see if Satan can stop this.

All you  have to do
is:

1. Pray for the person who sent this message to you.

2. Send this message to 10 people…More if you wish.

3.That way, 10 people will pray for you
and you will encourage many people
to pray to God for others.

4. Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life, as you do what pleases Him.

If you are not ashamed to do this, please, follow Jesus’ instructions.
He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33): “Everyone therefore
who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge
before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me
before  others,  I also will deny before My
Father in  heaven”.

If you  believe,
send this message… But send it only if you believe
in Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

Yes, I love God. He
is my source of life and my Savior.
He keeps me alive and safe, both day and night.

Without Him, I am nothing,
but with Him “I can do all things through Him
who strengthens me”. Philippians 4:13.

Real Meaning of Words In Pictures

Grab your tissues! (Especially where the dog is waiting………)

2010 may not have been everything I wanted it to be but thank God I am here to see 2011..  Some friends and family members are not,  I love all of you in different ways and have very special relationships with you which I truly appreciate.  As we go into the new year lets focus on each other and the love we share.  Life is too short to dwell on petty nonsense.  Embrace each other and lets move on to the next level and experience whatever God has in store for us.  Remember we serve an awesome God.  Let him steer the boat! Can you get it?  I did, that’s why I’m passing it on.   🙂

“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass … it’s about caring and loving your relatives and friends while you can touch and see them, and they are still among us.

May you always walk in sunshine, my friend!!

Be kind to all you meet, each of us carries a burden that others can’t see.

Luv U Day

She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens. She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying. She cries when she’s happy and laughs when she’s afraid. Her love is unconditional.

There’s only one thing wrong with her. She forgets what she’s worth!

Share this with every beautiful woman you know. Remind her that she’s unique. I love you girl ☺.

Heart Attack – Don’t Lie Down

Didn’t know that you should not lie down while waiting for the EMT!

 

About Heart Attacks:

There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm.
One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating,however these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.  If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: CALL 911
– say “heart attack!”
– say that you have taken 2 aspirins..
– phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by
– take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and… DO NOT lie down

A Cardiologist has stated that, if each person tells 10 others, at least one life can be saved!

A Good Note: Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve under the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep aspirin by your bedside?

Heart attack info NEW ASPIRIN/ Serious stuff, no joke!!

Just a reminder to all: purchase a box, keep one in your car, pocketbook, wallet, bedside, etc.

Something that we can do to help ourselves.

A Nurse’s Heart Attack Experience

Very informative information for the ladies…..please read and heed.  If we’ve forwarded this to a gentleman, please share with the special ladies in your life~ ~ ~

A NURSE’S HEART ATTACK EXPERIENCE

I am an ER nurse and this is the best description of this event that I have

ever heard. Please read, pay attention, and send it on!

FEMALE HEART ATTACKS

I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the

best description I’ve ever read.

Women and heart attacks (Myocardial

infarction). Did you know that women rarely have the same

dramatic symptoms that men have when experiencing heart attack?

You know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat,

grabbing the chest and dropping to the floor that we see in the movies?

Here is the story of one woman’s experience with a heart attack.

“I had a heart attack at about 10:30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO

prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on.

I was sitting all snugly and warm on a cold evening, with my purring

cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and

actually thinking, ‘A-A-h, this is the life’, all cozy and warm in my

soft, cushy Lazy Boy with my feet propped up.

A moment later, I felt that awful sensation of indigestion, when you’ve

been in a hurry and grabbed a bite of sandwich and washed it down with

a dash of water, and that hurried bite seems to feel like you’ve

swallowed a golf ball going down the esophagus in slow motion and it is

most uncomfortable.  You realize you shouldn’t have gulped it down so

fast and needed to chew it more thoroughly and this time drink a glass

of water to hasten its progress down to the stomach.  This was my

initial sensation—the only trouble was that I hadn’t taken a bite of

anything since about 5:00 PM.

After it seemed to subside, the next sensation was like little

squeezing motions that seemed to be racing up my SPINE (hind-sight, it

was probably my aorta spasms), gaining speed as they continued racing

up and under my sternum (breast bone, where one presses rhythmically

when administering CPR).

This fascinating process continued on into my throat and branched out

into both jaws.  AHA!! NOW I stopped puzzling about what was happening

— we all have read and/or heard about pain in the jaws being one of

the signals of an MI happening, haven’t we?  I said aloud to myself and

the cat, ‘Dear God, I think I’m having a heart attack’!

I lowered the foot rest dumping the cat from my lap, started to take a

step and fell on the floor instead.  I thought to myself, If this is a

heart attack, I shouldn’t be walking into the next room where the phone

is or anywhere else … But, on the other hand, if I don’t, nobody will

know that I need help, and if I wait any longer I may not be able to

get up in a moment.

I pulled myself up with the arms of the chair, walked slowly into the

next room and dialed the Paramedics …. I told her I thought I was

having a heart attack due to the pressure building under the sternum

and radiating into my jaws.  I didn’t feel hysterical or afraid, just

stating the facts.  She said she was sending the Paramedics over

immediately, asked if the front door was near to me, and if so, to

un-bolt the door and then lie down on the floor where they could see me

when they came in.

I unlocked the door and then laid down on the floor as instructed and

lost consciousness, as I don’t remember the medics coming in, their

examination, lifting me onto a gurney or getting me into their

ambulance, or hearing the call they made to St. Jude ER on the way, but

I did briefly awaken when we arrived and saw that the radiologist was

already there in his surgical blues and cap, helping the medics pull my

stretcher out of the ambulance.  He was bending over me asking

questions (probably something like ‘Have you taken any medications?’)

but I couldn’t make my mind interpret what he was saying, or form an

answer, and nodded off again, not waking up until the Cardiologist and his partner

had already threaded the teeny angiogram balloon up my femoral artery

into the aorta and into my heart where they installed two side by side

stints to hold open my right coronary artery.

I know it sounds like all my thinking and actions at home must have taken at

least 20-30 minutes before calling the paramedics, but actually it took

perhaps 4-5 minutes before the call, and both the fire station and St.

Jude are only minutes away from my home, and my Cardiologist was all

ready to go to the OR in his scrubs and get going on restarting my

heart (which had stopped somewhere between my arrival and the

procedure) and installing the stints.

1. Be aware that something very different is happening in your body not the

usual men’s symptoms but inexplicable things happening (until my

sternum and jaws got into the act).  It is said that many more women

than men die of their first (and last) MI because they didn’t know they

were having one and commonly mistake it as indigestion, take some

Mallox or other anti-heartburn preparation and go to bed, hoping

they’ll feel better in the morning when they wake up … which doesn’t

happen.  My female friends, your symptoms might not be exactly like

mine, so I advise you to call the Paramedics if ANYTHING is

unpleasantly happening that you’ve not felt before.  It is better to

have a ‘false alarm’ visitation than to risk your life guessing what it

might be!

2. Note that I said ‘Call the Paramedics.’ And if

you can take an aspirin.  Ladies, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!  Do NOT try

to drive yourself to the ER – you are a hazard to others on the road.

Do NOT have your panicked husband who will be speeding and looking

anxiously at what’s happening with you instead of the road.  Do NOT

call your doctor — he doesn’t know where you live and if it’s at night

you won’t reach him anyway, and if it’s daytime, his assistants (or

answering service) will tell you to call the Paramedics.  He doesn’t

carry the equipment in his car that you need to be saved!  The

Paramedics do, principally OXYGEN that you need ASAP.  Your Dr. will be

notified later.

3. Don’t assume it couldn’t be a heart attack because you have a normal

cholesterol count.  Research has discovered that a cholesterol elevated

reading is rarely the cause of an MI (unless it’s unbelievably high

and/or accompanied by high blood pressure).

MIs are usually caused by long-term stress and inflammation in the

body, which dumps all sorts of deadly hormones into your system to

sludge things up in there.  Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound

sleep.  Let’s be careful and be aware.  The more we know the better

chance we could survive.

Why have I written all of this to you with so much detail?  Because I want all

of you who are so important in my life to know what I learned first

hand.”

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people,

you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.
