๐Ÿ‘‘ The Hour

History records many great and significant events, but none nearly so significant as the crucifixion of Christ on the cross of Calvary. Referring to the time, then still future, when this should take place, our Lord spoke again and again of โ€œthe hour,โ€ โ€œthat hourโ€ and โ€œMy hour,โ€ and so does the sacred record.

When His enemies would have stoned Him at the Feast of Tabernacles, the record states merely: โ€œthey sought to take Him: but no man laid hands on Him, because His hour had not yet comeโ€ (John 7:30). Finally, when that dread time did arrive, we read:

โ€œAnd when the hour was come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Himโ€ (Luke 22:14).

โ€œAnd Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come that the Son of man should be glorified.

โ€œVerily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruitโ€ (John 12:23,24).

โ€œNow is My soul troubled; and what shall I say: Father save Me from this hour? But for this cause came I unto this end,โ€ (John 12:27).

โ€œNow before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had comeโ€ฆ having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the endโ€ (John 13:1).

Finally, in His great High-priestly prayer, uttered in the very shadow of the cross, He โ€œlifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is comeโ€ฆโ€ (John 17:1).

This is the hour to which many of the Old Testament sacrifices and prophecies had pointed forward. This is the hour to which the redeemed will look back with gratitude and praise for the ages to come. There would have been no salvation for sinners without it, nor any hope of a restored earth with the curse of sin removed. Thank God, because Christ was willing to face that dreadful hour โ€œwe have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His graceโ€ (Eph. 1:7). source
