Let’s take a lil Father Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me meaning field
trip ... We received a letter from a young boy that said that he
liked the Christianity
Oasis site but that his Dad was not a Christian and confronted
the boy with a question that caused doubt in this boy’s heart
as to his Faith. Of course, we have addressed this letter to clear up
the confusion and we have elected to share the Truth here as well,
just in case there are some that may be confused on this issue. While
Jesus was on the Cross, He said:

interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou

fact ... There have been many assumptions as to why Jesus spoke these
words but there is only one Truth. Let us seek the Truth in scripture
together, as to avoid deception and to be set free from any doubts.

by the prophet David ...
My God, my God, why hast thou
forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping
me, and from the words of my roaring?
So, why did Jesus say why hast Thou forsaken Me? The answer is that
Jesus was simply quoting Scripture. When Jesus echoed these prophetic
words, Jesus was directing the people who were present at His
Crucifixion and even us today to look at this particular Scripture to
reveal to them and us an awesome Truth.
Here is that Father Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me meaning Truth ...
Within Psalm 22 there is a prophecy that Jesus wanted us all to see
16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed
me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
17 I may tell all my bones:
they look and stare upon me.
18 They part my garments among them, and
cast lots upon my vesture.
Let’s look closer at the exact words in this Father Why Hast
Thou Forsaken Me meaning prophecy that Jesus wanted those present at
His Crucifixion and us to read ...
Psalm 22 was predicting that a group of people would surround someone
and pierce His hands and feet (crucify Him).
And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there
they crucified Him [Jesus].
What about those words in the “Father why hast Thou forsaken Me Prophecy of Psalm 22” that said ...
I may tell all my bones ...
This means that they would not break His bones.
31 The Jews therefore,
because it was the preparation, that the bodies
should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath
day, (for that Sabbath day was an high day,)
besought Pilate that their legs might be broken,
and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the
soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and
of the other which was crucified with Him.
when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was
dead already, they brake not His legs:
What about the part of the Prophecy that says ...
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
This means they will divide the clothing
of this person and gamble for His clothes.
And when they had crucified Him, they parted His garments,
casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
In addition ... The prophecy of these words from Psalms 22:
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they
shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that He would
deliver Him: let him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in Him.
Each was fulfilled during the Crucifixion of our Lord.
He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him:
for He said, I am the Son of God.
In simpler terms, the Father Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me meaning and
Why did Jesus say why hast Thou forsaken Me answer is simply ...
Jesus was revealing to those present at His Crucifixion and to us
That the Prophecy in Psalm 22 was being fulfilled at that time, when
He said ...
My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?
By directing us to the 22nd Psalm ... AS the Bible clearly tells us ...
And they crucified Him, and
parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which
was spoken by the Prophet, [David in Psalms] They parted my garments among
them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Pretty awesome huh?
Now, here is another Father Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me meaning tidbit
of Truth which is even more awesome, if you can imagine ...
We know from Scripture these things never
happened to David, who is the one who wrote Psalm 22.
Was he speaking of another? If so, why
was he saying Me, My and I?
Now, stay with me on this as you are about
to get a lil Spiritual insight into Prophecy ...
Prophecy is a bit strange.
Bible Prophecy is God speaking through man.
They shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him.
Now did ya catch the person change from Me to Him? As the writer of prophecy ... It is, of course, the prophet speaking
or writing, but it is also God’s Word being spoken through the
Jesus is the
Word of God.
John 1:1 and 1:14
1 In the beginning was the Word, and
the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the
only begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and
Therefore ... It was Jesus that spoke these Words through all of
the prophets, Including David in Psalm 22. Jesus makes it so clear in the Bible that it is Him speaking.
Therefore my people shall know my
name: therefore they shall know in that day that
I Am He that doth speak: behold it is I.
Come ye near unto me hear this; I
have not spoken in secret from the beginning;
from the time that it was there am I:
and now the Lord God and His Spirit
hath sent me.
So, like in the Father Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me meaning being prophecy ...
not only does Jesus reveal the Truth of the
Trinity by saying the Lord God and His Spirit
hath sent me, but shares with us that He has been from the beginning, just as the
Apostle John revealed in
John 1:1 and 1:14, and that it is He that speaks to us in the Word of
God (The Bible) as He is the Word of God.
In all prophecy, including the prophetic answer to Why did Jesus say
why hast Thou forsaken Me on the Cross, dying for the sins of those
looking upon Him and even our sins today, Jesus was saying what He
has from the beginning to those that could understand ...
It Is Me!
