And it was the third hour and they crucified him. Mark 15:25
This is the third hour in which the crucifixion of Jesus took place. The third hour is 9 a. m. They crucified Jesus in the third hour. Crucify means to hurt, afflict, strike, torment or torture. Take special note of the people that crucified him. The Romans smote him and spit on him. They passed him wagging their heads and mocked Him. Look at who else is in on the action too. Matthew 27:41 says, “Also in like manner the chief priest, the scribes and elders made fun of Him and mocked Him.” Religious folk had a hand in it too. It is not the world alone that will give you trouble, it’s your own kind. This is a picture of church folk in disguises, who attack kingdom folk.
Look at Mark 15:22-25. In the third hour, you will see the antichrist spirit at work. The same people that crucified Jesus exist today, attacking God’s people. They will take you to Golgotha (the place of the skull) like they did Jesus and will try everything in their power to bring you down. They will argue the truth and try to tear off your garments of truth, honesty and righteousness, to discredit your authority. Just as Jesus didn’t receive their wine, you must not receive what others dish out. You must stand firm on what you believe. The outsiders (world) and the insiders (religious folk standing in the outer courts) (with no Spirit and no discernment) crucified back then and are still doing so today.
