Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

Why was Jesus crucified?

Why was Jesus crucified? 
We all know in our world when criminals commit crimes they are punished and sent to prison. The same stands for all humans who steal lie, or commit crimes, and often commit adultery in our hearts. This is called sin.
What is the definition of sin?
An immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. wrongdoing, act of evil/wickedness, crime, offence, fall from grace. Which is "a sin in the eyes of God."
We humans continually live in sin because of the first man Adam's disobedience, which is breaking God's commands which grieves God's heart, because God is love and righteous who hates all and any form of evil or sin.
As we punish criminals for committing crimes. So must God, at our death, our souls live on and are sent to the spiritual prison called Hades. Just as the rich man was sent to Hades as told by Jesus in Luke 16:19.
In our world, no criminal is ever let off for free and are punished by going to prison or even receiving the death sentence depending on where they live.

Animal sacrifices.
This is not the case with our creator God.
The only way God could forgive us for breaking his commandments is to shed innocent blood. But God is merciful. 

We should die for our own sin and wrongdoing but in the Old Testament times God would allow the blood of animals to cover our wrongdoing and sin.
Gods people used to offer animal sacrifices for our sins. The High Priests would make a blood of the sin offering from the blood of bulls and goats on Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement, in the Holy of Holies, in the Temple of Jerusalem.
In Exodus 12:7 God's people were commanded to add lambs blood on the side and top of the door so the first born would be saved from death. And when they did this the first born was saved from death.
The animals blood served as a substitute and died in place of the sinner. The lambs blood and the sin offerings was symbolic and shadowed what Jesus Christ would do for the world. The animal sacrifices ceased when the final sacrifice was made on the cross by Messiah Jesus. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29.

The good news.
Because of God's love, grace and mercy for ALL sinners, He wants to forgive us for our sins and make us perfect even when we are not. The creator God loves us so much He has made us faultless.

All because of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is how we truly know God is love. God has made it possible by His righteousness, grace, mercy and love for ALL sinners to be forgiven when we pray to Jesus and say sorry and ask God to forgive us.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. When we sin God's heart is grieved. Just as our hearts grieve when we watch the news.

However the creator God demolishes all our sins when we repent and follow Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17.
All because of Jesus who paid for our debt and the price for our sins by taking our transgressions to the cross by giving up His life to give us eternal life in God's new Kingdom to come. Jesus gave His life for us and asks us to give up our life to follow Him. When we follow Jesus and obey His commands His perfect death and sacrifice makes us righteous and we become God's children, and will live with our creator God for ever.
Why is there so much suffering and disease in this world? Because of Adam's disobedience. we humans are trapped in bondage and groaning in pain. This is why there is pain, suffering and disease in this would. Our first ancestors broke God's heart by choosing to turn their creator God away and giving authority to the Devil.
The evil in the world is now instigated by the God of this world Satan the Devil, who most prefer to follow without realising it, rather than following the true God of love, through His Son Jesus Christ. However the good news is, for the ones who follow and put their trust in God and His Son Jesus, will live on for ever and will go in a perfect paradise to come, where God will restore the world back to being more than perfect. And: 
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21:4 As born again believers, we look forward for the time just about to come when Jesus will restore the world back to Paradise; and where there will never again be any more suffering or pain, dying or killing. We look forward to seeing the day when, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." Isaiah 11:6. Dear friend, WILL YOU BE THERE? 
Where will your soul end up? Are you saved? Click here to give your life to Jesus. Jesus came to set us free by reversing the curse of death that came because of Adam's disobedience, when the earth was cursed.
Once we accept Jesus, as He was raised from the dead, so are we directly at death and are ''set free'' from the curse, sin and the spiritual prison called
 (HADES) followed by Hell and death. This is why Jesus was crucified.
Death in Adam, Life in Christ
(Genesis 3:1-7; Genesis 7:1-5; 2 Peter 3:1-9)
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Romans 5:12 - 19.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6.
