Jesus was always going about doing His Fathers will. He knew His Father knew what was best for Him. He rested in this intimate knowledge and understanding of His Father. Before the foundation of the world He knew He had to come and suffer and die. He willingly came and did not question His Father’s plan for the redemption of mankind. This wonderful plan of salvation was not understood by the people and so they rejected Him. The Pharisees and scribes could not accept that the Messiah had to suffer and die. Jesus suffered at their hands and finally was put to death because He claimed He was the Messiah.
Today we too will suffer because the world does not accept that Jesus is the only way to God. The devil knows and trembles at the mention of the name of Jesus. He knows he was defeated on the Cross. What was meant for evil now turned out to be the means to eternal life. The devil was given a death blow on Calvary. He knew his end would come. Now we who follow Jesus suffer at the hand of the devil and his followers. The world is in darkness because the ruler of the world is judged and his time is short. God wants all to hear of His plan of salvation and be saved.
Now is the day of salvation. Do not delay for we do not know how much time we have left. The events in the world point to the soon coming of King Jesus. He promised He would return and we wait with hope for our redemption. This world and all that is in it will pass away. There will be a new earth and a new heaven. We will reign with Him as our King. We have a wonderful future and a hope that will never be denied. He said it and it will be done in His way and in His time. Maranatha.
