2 Thoughts for Your Consideration. 2 Questions that will Open Your Mind and Your Heart to the TRUTH.
- Did GOD the FATHER CRY TEARS Over HIS SON on the CROSS?
- WHAT DID the HOLY ANGELS DO during the CRUCIFIXTION
In many of my stories I imagine God speaking directly to me.
“My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me.
You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.
I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…THAT YOU COULD NOT BE RESTRAINED.
I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… THAT YOU COULD NOT BE RESTRAINED.
I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there… THAT YOU COULD NOT BE RESTRAINED.
Could you Ernie? The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.
I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for yours, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for yours….I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?
That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I KNEW IN MY HEART …
THAT I COULD NOT BE RESTRAINED !
Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.
WHAT DID the HOLY ANGELS DO during the CRUCIFIXTION OF JESUS?
The following is quoted from Randy Alcorn’s book Deadline. The character Finney has died and is a new arrival to Heaven and Zyor is the guardian Angel that stood by Finney from birth through death. Elyon is GOD the FATHER.
“Zyor stood and his voice trembled, not only with awe, but now with unmistakable anger.
“That little hill; where little men were permitted to do unspeakable things to Elyon’s Son. My comrades and I jammed against the portal, begging permission to break through and strike down the cowards, to unleash the relentless wrath of heaven’s army.
We longed to raise our swords as one, to destroy every atom of the dark world. All that was in us, thirsted for revenge. We ached to once and for all obliterate that cancer of rebellion against the Most High God.”
For the first time Finney saw in Zyor seething anger, fierce rage erupting to the surface. The angel paced back and forth like a caged lion, seeming suddenly much taller and more powerful, no longer the gentle teacher.
“Here were these puny men obsessed with the offences of others against them while themselves committing the ultimate offense of the universe, driving nails through the flesh of God. We longed to make them eat the dust of the ground and vomit clay.
Any one of us could have struck them all down, and we yearned to do it. Millions of us, legion upon legion, crowded forward, from every corner of heaven, pressing and pushing, crying out and begging leave to destroy those who would dare to curse and mock and ravage the holy Lamb of God!”
But Michael would not permit us, Zyor said softly. For Elyon would not permit him.
We writhed in agony; we had never thought such pain possible here in the perfect realm. And yet we grew to know —though not completely understand— that all this was necessary to meet the demands of Elyon’s justice and his love.
He did not need us to rescue him. With a single word, with merely a thought, he could have unmade all men, destroyed the universe, and purged all creation of the ugliness that nailed him to that cross.
But he did not. He would not. He did not go there to be rescued. He went there to rescue.”
And of all the adventures eternity will bring—most of which I can no more guess than you—the fact that Elyon was slain to buy the souls of men will overshadow everything.
In heaven everybody would be perfect, unblemished, and unscarred. Only the
Carpenters scars would remain forever. The only one who would appear less than perfect in eternity would be the eternally perfect one himself.
The rage your people direct against others, and a billion times over, should be directed against each of you by Elyon, and for eternity. When you were first closed out of the Garden of God, I thought he was done with you. You have seen many things here in heaven that cause you wonder and you have barely begun to see. But for me the greatest wonder is simply that you are here at all.
For I know what you were before Elyon captured you and I knew your transgressions on earth even after he first laid hold of you. I marvel at your transformation, which began on earth, from darkness to light. I have never known darkness; though some of my closest comrades once chose that path, before your world was born.
Twisted and marred beyond recognition, you were transformed by his grace and empowered by his Spirit to live as a light in the midst of the darkest world the universe has ever known, or ever will. And so you lived, Master Finney, not perfectly, but faithfully. And this heaven you see now is only the beginning of the glory still to come.”
