History has only one main event. 

"Mankind's timeline is dotted with important moments.

The first spark from the first flint. The rolling in the first wheel.

The treating of the first wound.

Who dares minimise these events?

But who dares compare them with the Cross?

History has only one main event. Scripture has only one main event.

Others matter, but only one is essential.

The story of Jericho might stir you, but falling walls canít redeem you.

Moses will give you directions for the wilderness but no solution for your sin.

Davidís defeat of Goliath might reduce your timidity but only the Cross prepares you for eternity.

Scripture has only one main event.

Even in the life of Jesus there is only one main event. For if there is no Cross of Christ then there is no Truth to Christ. And when it comes to your life the same is true. To remove the Cross is to remove the hinch-pin from the door of hope. The door to your hope.

For if there is no Cross then there is no sacrifice for sin. If there is no sacrifice for sin then how will you face a sinless God? Will you cleanse your own sin?

And if there is no Cross of Christ then there is no resurrection of Christ. And if there is no resurrection of Christ how will you live again? Will you push back your own grave?

Forgiveness of sin. Deliverance from death. These are the claims of the Cross.

The Cross is not an event in history.

It is THE event of history".
