1 Corinthians 2:8; Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
There is a very deep wisdom behind Christ’s death on the cross. It is this wisdom that the princes of this world did not know when they chose to put him to death by crucifixion.
Our theme scripture does not mean that if the princes of this world had known that wisdom, they would not have killed Christ. Rather, it means that if they had known this wisdom, they would not have killed him ON A CROSS.
If they had known the wisdom of the cross, they would have poisoned Him, stoned Him to death, burnt Him or killed Him through some other grievous way but they would not have killed Him on a cross.
It means that there is a wisdom and a revelation in that cross.
What then is the wisdom of the cross?
In Deuteronomy 21:23, the Bible reveals that he that hangs on a tree is cursed by God. It was a curse for a man to be hanged on a tree.
In the grand scheme of the redemption of mankind, Christ decided to identify Himself with this curse so He could free us from THE CURSE of the law.
Galatians 3:13 says; Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.
This was divine wisdom at work!
He destroyed the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Now, as a believer, you live curse free, whether from ‘generational curses’ or ‘family curses.’
The wisdom of the cross has made you free. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: Deuteronomy 21:23, Galatians 3:13
Christ destroyed the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Now, as a believer, you live curse free, whether from ‘generational curses’ or ‘family curses.’ This is the wisdom of the cross.
PRAYER: My loving father, I thank you for the cross! Thank you for the great sacrifice at Calvary, the greatest moment in human history. By the cross, I was redeemed from the curse of the law and walk in freedom every day. Thank you for removing the cause for any curse to stand by becoming a curse for my sake. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
