The truth of the crucifix is in this little poem for you to read.

Satan’s Trophy: The Crucifix

Did you ever wonder why so many churches display crucifixes? Well, perhaps not, but you ought to, and let the Holy Ghost fill you in.

Listen: If you were a relative of President John F. Kennedy, would it please you to put his photo in a place of honor with a chunk of his head blown off? Or if he was someone you respected, would you feel compelled to mount a replica of the rifle used to cut him down displayed above your bed? I think not, unless it gave you great pleasure that he was murdered. This crucifix business is like the soldiers that keep an ear, a finger, a scalp, or other body parts of an enemy they killed as a sadistic memento. How about Mary? Did she hang an ornate gold crucifix around her neck in remembrance of the son she bore and raised, or have a painting of Golgotha hung on her living room wall that portrayed his features “so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men.” (Isaiah 52:14) A ludicrous thought, I think. And just to emphasize that scripture again, the Lord was brutalized more than any human has ever been brutalized; and an artist’s conception of the crucifixion inevitably does not depict the real horror of having our sins and sickness put upon him… again, he was marred more than any man!

In the same way, who desires, relishes, and makes it their business to sell, or display a limp and lifeless Jesus tacked to a cross with little driblets of blood here and there. Keep in mind, though, the pivotal point of the gospel is not Jesus’ death, but his resurrection as the Son of God who conquered death, hell and the grave for us. If you think about it, the devil figured the dead Christ was his greatest victory; but the crucifixion was, in reality, the offense that sealed his eternal execution in the lake of fire. Interestingly, after the conspirators killed the Lord Jesus, they made merry and sent gifts one to another, which was the first Christmas. You can discern this from what they do to the two prophets in Revelation Chapter 11, plus the definition of the two words that make up the term Christmas – Christ and Mass. (Maybe we’ll get into that sometime.) Today Satan still revels in the murdering of Jesus Christ, and maniacally laughs as he cons the ignorant to practice the mockery of crucifix veneration, which also tickles the clergy and the congregation of the Whore of Babylon, and her daughters.

This is an interesting scripture, isn’t it - “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.” (Proverbs 16:4) And so, after two thousand years, the devil’s boys are still reminding the world, with their crucifixes, that they killed Jesus Christ. But the rest of the story is he died for our sins according to the scriptures, was buried, and rose again the third day according to the scriptures, and ascended to heaven, where he sits upon the throne of glory at this very moment. If you believe the whole gospel story in your heart - which is highlighted by the resurrection - and confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, you shall be saved. (Romans 10:9-10) The devil’s idolatrous crucifix, which blesses the killers of Christ, is, however, an abomination that maketh desolate, wherever it stands. Maybe you had better look that up in Matthew Chapter 24.

Here’s a little poem I wrote to say it all, in a nutshell, entitled…

Satan's Trophy

Satan’s Trophy, Satan, Trophy, John F. Kennedy, John, Mary, Crucifix, Golgotha, Isaiah 52, two prophets, Revelation 11, Proverbs 16:4, wicked for the day of evil, wicked,

The fisher went a fishing
And caught himself a prize
He took it to the taxidermy
And mounted its great size

The hunter, too, he shot his prey
And had it stuffed, you see
To show his friends what he had killed
And how it brought him glee

The devil thought he'd do the same
And hanged Christ on a cross
So he killed the Son of God one day
To show he was the boss
And now you see the crucifix
`Tis Satan's trophy, `tis true
But one day soon, it'll come back on him
And forever he'll be through

And, so, until we meet again, remember – God Loves You. Read Your Bible.




The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.  Amen
