Christ Crucified

Sharing some thoughts on Christ Crucified.

I am starting to read through Job. Taking my time. I’m not very far into it. It’s a difficult book for me to follow. I get totally lost reading it in KJV… so I read each chapter in a kids bible version to get the gist of it, then a little through the NIV or AMP, but I am finding that I am enjoying the NLT (a paraphrase translation) the most with this book and it’s the easiest for me to understand.


Jobs name means “hated” and he is from the land of Uz which means “wooded”. I thought for sure Job was just a parable of the flesh… but Jesus showed me something much deeper than that…


Job is also a picture of Christ on the Cross.

For the Almighty has struck me down with his arrows. Their poison infects my spirit. God’s terrors are lined up against me.
Job 6:4 NLT


For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 kjv


Christ crucified is the flesh. Another Mystery of the Cross!


In the flesh is where all the wrath, misery, torment, and gnashing of teeth is… this is all bound up and constrained on the cross, in Jesus. The flesh goes no further than the cross. The total destruction of all that is adam happens there on the cross, in Christ. A literal thing. 


It sounds like such a strange thing to say, but I’ve been asking Jesus to show me the reality of the cross, here and now. 


Christ crucified is adam. The end of him. Within all of us. It is all of us.


The finality of the cross and the end of the flesh (the end of adam, the old man) has become such a reality to me lately. When I struggle in the flesh I am very aware that it is already finished and will be overcome. 


Christ died ONCE and we ALL died WITH Him.


2 Corinthians 5:14 KJV — For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:


Why did Paul want to know nothing but Christ crucified? I always thought that was such a weird thing. But Paul understood that Christs death was his own death… and knowing Christ crucified was the end of Paul. It’s the end of all of us. Coming to know the Lord will always bring us to the end of ourselves. It brings us to the cross. He reveals it in us. And once we reckon ourselves dead, He can live His life *in* us. His Life is now ours.


Most come to the end of themselves when they physically die… but those who come to know Christ crucified die in this life. Their literal death.


My prayer lately has been that it would be Christ standing and not me. That He would be revealed in me, living His Life.

  1. Love this.. a deep rev of the cross and the old man crucified. I love what you wrote about how many come to the end of themselves at the end of their lives, but for us who know Christ crucified, we are come to the end of our lives now while we r still living. He gives us the same desire.. to see His Life manifest in us and the end of ourselves. A desire we never would have had if He didnt give it to us thru His Spirit.

  2. Thank you Lord for another soul seeking you in spirit and truth! Tatiana, have you been buried in baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins yet? Acts 2:38 I saw your post on YouTube and it brought me here. Doctrine is important, love is also important. If I have not love, all is vanity.

  3. Hi! I believe Acts 2:38 is the one baptism Paul mentioned here, which is that of the Spirit.

    Ephesians 4:5 KJV — One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

    There are no sins remitted when someone gets dunked under water, only when a person turns their heart to Christ and is baptized in the Spirit and changed into a new creation. That’s what changes a person. That is what the Lord taught me about baptism.

  5. I was thrilled that you talked about seeing Christ in Job because the Lord has shown me Christ in Job too; it’s not something you hear often. So much of what Job says while suffering could be Jesus speaking from the cross. It gives you a sense of what Jesus might’ve felt during the crucifixion. And after suffering, Job gets to act as priest for his friends, just as Jesus was our high priest. So much good stuff in there!

  6. I can see that also, things Job says as Christs suffering. I used to think God was really mean to Job, but it’s a picture of the cross. I havent gotten to the end, but I will def keep this in mind what you shared of Job acting as a priest for his friends. Thanks so much for sharing!
