This is a MUST HEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
All my life I have seen and read that Jesus was affixed to the cross by piercing his hands with nails. Nevertheless, in this later decade I have seen many pictures in which Jesus is depicted as being nailed to the cross through his wrists. I have heard also some weird scholars backing this nonsense. I am going to demonstrate this false with three different arguments: a) anatomically, showing that the hand certainly can hold the weight of a person; b) anatomically and biblically, showing that they could not pierce Jesus’ wrists, because it would break one or more of his bones, and c) biblically only, showing that the Bible says that it was Jesus’ hands that were pierced.
First argument. Those who say that Jesus was nailed through the wrists allege that a human body cannot be held to a cross by nailing its hands to it, because the flesh would give way, the hand would rip, and the person would fall. This is a lie.
Those who say such a thing never have seen the dissection of a human body. I have seen many times the hand being studied in cadavers, by medical students. During their first year they have to study anatomy. At that time they have to dissect not only the hand but also the whole body.
The conjunctive tissue of the body of humans and animals is stronger than a rope. Tendons, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises are conjunctive tissues. The hand is full of them, as you can see in pictures # 1 and # 2.
All these pictures are taken from the book “An Atlas of Anatomy”, by J. C. Boileau Grant, M.C.; M.B.; Ch. B.; F.R.C.S. Edin, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy in the University of Toronto, Fourth Edition. Pictures numbers 57, 84, 92 and 98.

Picture # 2 Dorsum of the hand
It is not possible that tendons of a person’s hands, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises, pierced by a nail, give way to let the weight of the body rip the hand, because conjunctive tissue is very strong. This would only happen in a rotten body, not in a living man. This wouldn’t happen even if the body of Christ was hung from only one hand, much less from both. It is not true that Christ was pierced from the wrists. This lie was introduced into Christianity by its enemies, especially by the Russellites.
You may think that your delicate hands would be ripped apart if they were hung. What you need to remember is that Christ’s hands were carpenter hands. Today, you can get an idea about how strong Christ hands were by looking at the hands of any 33 year old carpenter who has been in building houses since he was a teenager.
Second argument. According to the Scripture, Jesus Christ is our Passover Lamb, who was going to be sacrificed. That is why he was killed the very same day that the Passover lamb was to be killed. Paul says so in I Co 5: 7.
“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are
unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us”
( I Co 5: 7 )
In the ordinances of the Passover it is established that no bone must be broken in the lamb. It was a shadow of what was going to happen later with Jesus, to whom no bone was broken. The Passover ordinances say as follows:
“In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh
abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.”
( Ex 12: 46 )
“They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it:
according to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it.”
( Nm 9: 12 )
As we can see, the rite of the Passover forbade breaking any bone of the lamb. That is why the Roman soldiers did not break Jesus’ legs when they brought him down from the cross. God would not let them do so.
“Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other
which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that
he was dead already, they broke not his legs; but one of the soldiers with a
spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And
he that saw it bare record, and his record is true; and he knoweth that he saith
true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture
should be fulfilled: A bone of him shall not be broken.”
( John 19: 32 – 36 )
If any bone of Jesus Christ could not be broken, then a nail could not have been driven through his wrists, because then for sure his wrist bones would be broken. The wrist has eight bones: scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate. These bones are kept tightly together by ligaments, in such a way, that if you drive a nail through the wrist you have to pierce and break some of them. Therefore, Jesus could not be nailed by the wrists, but by the palm of the hand. The five metacarpal bones which constiture the palm of the hand, are separate from each other, and thus a nail can be driven between two of them without breaking any. See picture # 3. This means that the hand can be pierced by a nail without breaking a bone, but if the wrist is pierced by a nail, it necessarily will break one or more bones. See picture # 4.
Picture # 3 Bones of wrist, palm and fingers
The section of the wrist of the former picture, is enlarged in the next picture so that you can see that it is impossible to drive a nail through the wrist without breaking a bone.

Third argument. Above and beyond all these “anatomical” arguments are the biblical arguments. In the Bible it says several times that Jesus was pierced at his hands and his feet. It never ever mentions the wrists. Why then are people trying to instill in us, by means of pictures and conferences, that Jesus was nailed at his wrists? What are they up to?
Let us see what Jesus said when he showed himself to apostles.
“The other disciples therefore said unto him: We have seen the Lord. But
he said unto them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put
my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not
believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas
with them; then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
said: Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger,
and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and
be not faithless, but believing.” ( John 20: 25-27 )
As we can see in this passage, Thomas knew that Jesus’ hands were pierced, not his wrists. He expected a hole in his hands, not in his wrists. When Jesus came to them a second time, he showed Thomas his hands, not his wrists. It is evident that it was his hands that were pierced by the nails, not his wrists. This same thing can be noticed in other passages. Let us see them.
“And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then
were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.”
( John 20: 20 )
“And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled?; and why do thoughts arise
in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me,
and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when
he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.”
( Luke 24: 38- 40 )
In these two passages we see that for the purpose of identifying himself Jesus showed them his hands and his feet, not his wrists and his feet.
If we go to the prophecies of the Old Testament we will also see that when foretelling what Jesus was going to go through, they talked about his hands, not about his wrists.
“For dogs have compassed me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed
me: they pierced my hands and my feet.” ( Psalms 22: 16 )
“And one shall say unto him: What are these wounds in thine hands? Then
he shall answer: Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”
( Zech 13: 6 )
There is not the slightest doubt that Jesus was pierced through his hands and not through his wrists, like some weird scholars now want us to believe.
Nevertheless, I will not be surprised if one of these days some weird scholar declares that Jesus was nailed to the cross by his ankles, not by his feet.
There are now some questionable “scholars” that are trying to convince Christians that in ancient times, people never did make a difference between “hand” and “wrist”, in order to justify that Jesus was nailed by the wrist. This is false. In ancient times they made a difference between hand and wrist. Both, Latin and Greek have a word for wrist: in Latin, it was, “carpus”, and in Greek it was pronounced very similar but written ,“carpoz”. What these dubious scholars say is not true.
Take communion, repent, pray and be ready for anything! Do not fear, we were not given a spirit of fear but rather a sound mind! Praise, worship and glorify Jesus no matter what happens…remember that these actions bring you into direct contact with the Father as well as being demon repellent as well. Perhaps we will be seeing each other soon:) HalleuYah for that if we do.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
The thing is, we know that this time line is close to or the first half of Daniel’s 70th week begins – because the seed is not yet in the barn, an obvious reference to the barley and wheat harvests, so that means this extends into the FIRST HOUR OF DARKNESS, that is, the time OF TRIAL to TRY THEM that dwell upon the whole Earth. This is a trial for the EARTH DWELLERS.
We also know, that if the timeline is being correctly interpreted, and it may not be, but IF it is, then Daniel’s 70th week should begin on 4-11-2014. And we also know that the 20th and 4th day of the 9th month is NOVEMBER 27, 2013 this year and then Ison makes contact with the Sun on the 28th. We also found out something that really does mark this April 11th date, in addition to the two comets. When you combine them, it is a verily, verily, verily, verily situation. Here it is:
1 – Comet Hyukatake – crosses Algol on 4-11-1996.
2 – Comet Hale-Bopp crosses Algol on 4-11, 1997.
3. Exactly @ 4:00 pm David Ben Gurion called the meeting to order in The Art Museum in Tel Aviv declaring Israel a Nation and exactly 11 minutes later President Truman Recognized the State in 1948 could this be a 4-11 as you have talked about? Also this was the 2nd time for 4 Blood moons.
4. If we come back from September 23rd, 2017, the Feast of Trumpets 1260 days, we arrive at 4-11-2014 and another (3rd time) 4 BLOOD RED MOONS.
Now this is NOT COINCIDENTAL. It appears that this shaking of the nations is A SERIES OF EVENTS – BUT WHAT STARTS IT? Ison and a CME major flare event? A major earthquake? A close encounter with an asteroid, as seen by remote viewer Ed Dames and Native American Elder Red Elk? Or is something totally unforeseen, out of the blue, totally unexpected? Like a monetary collapse via derivatives? A great shaking in America as a final warning? The New Madrid? California? Puerto Rico? No one knows. Only the Lord.
11-27-2013. That is this Wednesday, That adds up to 17. Seventeen in the Bible means VICTORY. 11-28-2013, which is Thursday, adds up to 18. That means BONDAGE – like ANTICHRIST system BEGINS TO RISE. And then 11-29-2013, that adds up to 19 and that means FAITH. So then let’s attempt to decipher the meaning of these THREE DAYS IN NOVEMBER.
VICTORY FOR THE BRIDE, BONDAGE FOR THOSE LEFT BEHIND, and
FAITH WILL BE REQUIRED TO PRESENT YOURSELF TO BE BEHEADED. “Go to them that sell” – and ANTICHRIST is selling salvation via beheading.
So then, is it possible that these THREE DAYS IN NOVEMBER will be the PRECURSOR EVENTS that lead into Daniel’s 70th week? Or is this going to be the THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS? We do not know. We are speculating here. It may be a whole series of events that begins the unveiling of Daniel’s 70th week. It all may be nothing at all – We do not know, but we can say HEADS UP.
The sun is acting very strange now, very strange. Could the sun blink out? Could something come between the Earth and Sun and cause a total black-out? Could a massive coronal hole develop that covers our side of the Sun? A massive super natural event of some kind? Or nothing happens at all?
If you get up Wednesday and it is totally dark, and there should be light – stay home, do not go to work. It the sky darkens on Wednesday, when it should not, leave work and go home. It does not matter WHEN it begins, only that IF IT DOES, stay home and ride it out INDOORS, away from the windows, and do not go outside for any reason those three days. Something is wrong with the Sun- and I believe these are the signs of the coming MINI-NOVA OF THE LORD as found in Isaiah.The Sun, they all say, is acting strange – but “not to worry”. True, take it to the Lord – ALWAYS.
Sun fires off powerful solar flare, triggering radio blackout

An X1-class flare erupts from the right side of the sun in this image captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory on Tuesday.
The sun unleashed a powerful solar flare early Tuesday, the latest in a series of intense storms this month from Earth’s closest star.”

Right now, we are in solar cycle 24 and what was supposed to be a period of solar maximum with unprecedented sunspot activity, has become one of the most baffling situations scientists have ever seen; events that were all too clearly predicted by Remote Viewers regarding the impending Killshot event. Every 11 years, the Suns magnetic polls swap polarity like clockwork but this time, something is not right. Today (November 24, 2013) space agencies have confirmed that the northern poll swapped months ago but the southern hemisphere has not! Along with the fact that the sun has temporarily gone silent showing low sunspot activity during what was suppose to period of solar maximum, seems to indicate something very abnormal is occurring. Scientists at this point are waiting to see what happens over the next 3-5 years which could be anything from massive solar flares to a new spontaneous ice age. In fact, one scientist interviews stated the following:
“The last time that happened, during the so-called “Maunder Minimum” between 1650 and 1715, almost no sunspots were observed. During the same period, temperatures dropped sharply on Earth, sparking what is called the “Little Ice Age” in Europe and North America.”
“Radio Talk Show Host John Moore’s “research associate” Ann Morrison revealed some outstanding info on John Moore’s show yesterday revealing what our SUN is doing to our Weather down here on the deck.
Yeah, overall, the current Solar cycle has been a “dud” but at the same token, its’ behavior has been EXTREMELY BIZARRE because whenever filaments, Crochets & UV Bursts are happening, it’s REALLY AFFECTING Weather down here. And Stan Deyo asserts that the Current C and M-Class Flares put out something like 1000X More energy than prior to 1992 levels.
Something is wrong with the Sun’s irradiance figures in this grand solar maximum. UV bursts and new irradiance emissions in the UV band since 1992 are a fact and this is a worry when the Earth’s magnetic field is weakening at an alarming rate.”
It is not a good thing, as Martha Stewart would say – this is not a good thing. We are on the edge, the very edge – but then again, the Lord is in total control, and He alone knows what all of this ACTUALLY MEANS. We do not, so we wait, we watch and we pray always that we be found worthy to stand before the Son of Man and escape all of these things that are to come to pass. After all, maybe nothing will happen this year at all – but even so –
are you ready?
Are you under the wings of Jesus Christ? That is truly the ONLY place of safety now.
