Often when we hear the term “piercings” we picture a sword, but that is not all. It is important that you note that Jesus had piercings in the Bible.
Revelation 1:7 extends the mourning to the entire world
Revelation is a book in the Bible. It is a collection of descriptions of Jesus’ appearance, and it contains blessings for readers. The book is primarily addressed to seven specific churches. In Revelation 16:16, the focal point of their gathering is called Armageddon in Hebrew. In Revelation 9:16, the arrival of an army from the Orient is described as a force of 200 million.
The book is written by John, who was banished from Rome to the Greek island of Patmos. It was located in the Aegean Sea, close to Asia Minor. It is likely that the book was written before the Roman Empire had extended its reach to all corners of the globe.
In Revelation 1-7, the risen, glorified Son of God, is referred to in the book as the one, who’s the King of kings or the Lord of lords. The book describes God as being in the present, and in the future. The book is also the first to mention the phrase “the three horsemen of the apocalypse,” a reference to the three major armies that are waging war in the Middle East.
The book also mentions the rapture, a mysterious event that will see a few lucky Christians caught off guard. The rapture will not occur immediately. The rapture is not something that happens in a flash. Instead, it occurs at the conclusion of a long and arduous tribulation.
The book mentions several other impressive feats, including the invention of the atomic bomb, and the first use of nuclear weapons in warfare. The book doesn’t mention the inventions of the microchip and the genesis and discovery of oxygen. The book is also short on detail.
The five holy wounds
Jesus suffered many wounds during his Passion, including flagellation lash marks and nail holes in his feet and hands. These wounds are known as the Five Holy Wounds, or Five Sacred Wounds. The Five Wounds represent Christianity. These wounds were the focal point of devotions in the Middle Ages.
Devotion to the Five Wounds of Christ has been a regular topic for Pope Francis. It was a topic he recently discussed at a meeting of religious order priests.
The five wounds of Jesus are a symbol of Christianity. These were inflicted by Jesus’ enemies during his crucifixion. These wounds were Jesus’ way of atoning for his sins. These wounds were also the channels through which blood was shed.
Christ’s blood was enough to atone for the sins of all humankind. His blood sealed the new covenant between God, man and God. He took captives from their tyrant masters, and has redeemed a host people that no one can count.
For many centuries, the Five Wounds of Christ have been a symbol of Christianity. These wounds were reflected into church music and art during the Middle Ages. In 1139, Afonso I, Portugal’s king, included the symbol of the Five Wounds in his coat of arms.
The Dominican Rosary encourages devotion to the Sacred Wounds. The Rosary contains five large beads and five small beads, which represent one of the Five Wounds of Christ. The beads correspond to the Pater Nosters.
Contemplating the wounds of Jesus helps you to recognize the effects of malice and evil in your life. It can also help you to repent.
The piercing of Jesus’ side
The Gospel of John’s Gospel contains a unique detail: the piercing on Jesus’ side. The story of Jesus’ piercing and how it happened prefigures the birth of the Church.
This is the only instance of Jesus’ Side being pierced in the Gospel of John. It is the only chiasm-accompanied occurrence in John’s Gospel that is eye-opening. The chiasm refers to a list of three items mentioned in the context for the piercing.
The piercing on Jesus’ side prefigures both the laying of the Eucharist, and the baptizing with water. It is not an accident that both events are mentioned in the same scripture passage.
A gushing of blood was heard as Jesus’ side was pierced. The blood flowed from a spear that was pierced into Jesus’ side. Some recent studies have shown that the gushing of blood may have been a natural phenomenon. The shortest explanation is that the soldier plunged the spear into Jesus’ side, causing a pleural cavity near the heart to be pierced.
While it is not clear how the gushing of blood occurred, the piercing of Jesus’ Side was the best way to testify to Jesus’ resurrection. It is also the best way to testify to the evangelistic purpose of the Gospel. According to the Bible, if people look at Jesus’ pierced side, they will see signs of the Messiah.
It is worth noting that Jesus’ Side was pierced on the Day of Resurrection. During the three hours Jesus spent walking around Jerusalem, He suffered the physical effects of scourging and nailing to the cross. He also suffered from an unnamed crown of thorns.
The separating of blood from water
The question of whether Jesus used piercings in order to separate blood from water has been a mystery to the Christian church for centuries. Many believe the passage refers specifically to the Eucharist. Others argue that it was a later practice. While the controversy surrounding the Eucharist is not of great concern for this study, there is an interesting connection between the passage and its eucharistic imagery.
The passage in John 19:34 deals with the blood and water that flowed from Jesus’ side after he was pierced by the spear. The term “water and blood” has been used in various ways, sometimes relating to John 4, which describes a water baptism, and sometimes to John 6, which describes a loaf of bread from heaven. The occurrence of water and blood on the cross is often seen as a proof that Jesus was crucified.
While some see the blood and water as proof of Jesus’ death, others believe it was natural bodily processes. Nevertheless, some church fathers in the fourth century saw water and blood as a symbol of the New Covenant, and justification and regeneration.
Several Jewish sources describe the human body as composed of water and blood. In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit was often described in liquid terms. Similarly, Jesus breathed the Holy Spirit on the disciples.
Some have suggested that the “water” and “blood” refer to the Holy Spirit. Others suggest it refers either to the Tamid sacrifice lamb or to the story about Isaac’s binding.
Some people suggest that the blood and water are a reference to Jesus’ crucifixion. Others argue that it is a reference the Eucharist. It is possible that John’s intent was to draw attention to the fact that the crucifixion was related to the Temple in three ways.
A sword can pierce your soul
It doesn’t matter if you believe in astrology. The best way to describe the “sun shining on the moon at night”, is to say it is a good thing. It is, of course, a nifty little thing to behold, especially when you take it into consideration that it is not always at your beck and call.
The best part is that you can enjoy it in the privacy of your own home. That is if you’re blessed enough to have your own sex and not a bunch of knuckle draggers.
