It all started with three nails on a cross

It all started with three nails on a cross

Written By Dean Masciarelli

March 6, 2010 (9:28am)

It all started with three nails on a cross

And then when Jesus died he went to hell

Where he spent three days and three nights
for one purpose to try to save some souls

And on the third day he rose from the dead 
according to the scriptures

And the first ones to bare witness 
to his rising were some of 
the ladies that were near his tomb

Yet so many people had trouble believing this

And then Jesus appeared to the dejected apostle
and he walked with him by the flowers and shrubs

And as they walked through the garden

Jesus tried to explain to Peter

That the enemy didn’t want to let Peter go

But Jesus let Peter know

That he wouldn’t give him up

Because he knew Peters heart and that’s why he forgave him

So that Peter could share his gospel with those who sit in the darkness

Because he wanted Peter to try to change 
the evil thoughts of the natural minds of men

And in the process it literally changed Peters doubts

And all the sorrow that he carried in his heart

And then Jesus vanished as quickly as he appeared

And Peter knew in his heart that he was given a second chance

And it just goes to show all of us that Jesus truly has such a forgiving heart

And that is why he died with three nails on the cross 

So that he could forgive us for our sins 

If we would just have enough faith to believe in him

For he will never forsake us because that is his promise
