The Cross of Jesus
Galatians 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
The cross of Jesus is the focal point of all time. Our English word cross comes from the Latin word crux. We often say that the crux of the matter is such and such, referring to the point that we believe is important above all others. I believe that the Cross of Jesus Christ is the crux of all history and existence. In the bible, God predicted the Cross in the garden of Eden, and all Old Testament scripture points forward to it. All New Testament scripture points back to the Cross. At the end of the age, when all the redeemed are gathered at the throme of God, endless praises will be extended to Jesus, because of His cross.Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

God said that he looked, but He couldn't find anyone.
Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Hebrews 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
The apostle Paul asks us to take notice that God was in Christ, and He reconciled us to Himself by the cross of Jesus. He also has given to believers "the word of reconciliation."
