My daughter fell on her arm once. I raced to her side. She was in such excruciating pain that she said, “Daddy, will the pain ever go away?” It broke my heart….my baby was suffering and I was struggling to comfort her.
I think about how they dragged him, spat in his face, slapped him, blindfolded him, hit him on his head and demanded that he prophecy; they stripped him naked, shamed him, insulted him, tied him to a post and beat him brutally; His flesh was ripped away and blood gushed out. They made him carry a cross, nailed his hands and feet to it, crowned him with thorns and pierced his heart.
Finally, he cried, “Father, why have you forsaken me!” and the Heavens were silent and He died.
Do you know the answer? You are the answer…He did it for you and because of you. Sing all the love songs you want, but give me Jesus. Much more than a song, but a love demonstrated. It is the discussion of angels, demons, principalities and Heavenly bodies. In the corridors of Heaven the angels whisper, “Did you hear what happened to the Darling of Heaven?” To which the angels reply, “And for which of the mighty Heaven’s beings was this sacrifice made?” The angels marveled and Hell was shaken forever.
Through man, angels know God.
A shout filled every corner of the Universe – God is love!
Psalms 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
