Hope is what Jesus Christ provided at the Cross
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes[a] his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
Hope is such a powerful thing. Hope is what saves lives. As human beings, this is what separates us from the rest of God‘s Creations. We are able to analyze and see beyond the circumstances in front of us. To forge ahead, with the HOPE of overcoming what is set in black and white (concretely) in front of us. True liberation, is through hope and love, which is what Jesus Christ displayed on the Cross.
When you believe in God who says His Ways are beyond any logic on this earth; that is how HOPE arises. You FEEL and BELIEVE in a logic that only Divinity can inspire. People believe we are fighting wars that are in this physical realm….but there is a bigger war that we are ALL a part of, and that is within the Spiritual Realm. Jesus Christ, through the example of how He led His Life, gave us all of the tools and teachings to the foundation we needed to fight this spiritual war. And by dying on the Cross, He unshackled us from Evil‘s grips. God loved us that much as His Children….that He sent His Son, from Heaven, to live amongst us….to endure everyday struggles and trials…..and to even endure the tortuous death that He did….to go to that extent to show us, how much He loves us…..to show us how much He understands what we go through, based on evil’s plans….to show us that despite all of the wrongs we commit, we have the opportunity make things right in front of Him…and come back home to Him. Jesus dying on the Cross, did so, out of Love. Not because of any deal or cause. Just simply…out of Love, to become the shockabsorber of our sins (which my Dad has often told me, in so many ways).
God has given us the CHOICE….to choose to live in His Ways. Unlike evil, God does not force us into servitude, in exchange of His Love and Acceptance. Once you have tasted Yahweh‘s Love, it becomes something you yearn to feel forever. He doesn’t force you…you just CHOOSE to want it more and more. Evil wants you to believe we serve such an unjust God, that is hypocritical and mean. However, Jesus Christ showed us on the Cross, that His Love for us is so endless, that He sacrifices all, for the sake of bringing us back home to Him. , to the point of sacrificing His Son at the Cross. Jesus Christ, though being the King of Kings….He did not die in a noble way. In fact, He died alongside 2 criminals…..because that is the extent that God was telling us…that HE WILL FORGIVE, NO MATTER THE SIN. We just have to go back to Him….and ask to be forgiven. There is only one thing that can prevent us in going back to Him and asking for that forgiveness, and that is ONE OF THE 7 DEADLY SINS: PRIDE. In fact this sin is what drives evil’s agenda, to take away as many souls possible from God…….it is what got Lucifer kicked out of Heaven…..
Jesus Christ died on the Cross…..to show us ALL, that there is HOPE. Hope that God’s Goodness will rule again. Hope that evil’s rule is over. The final countdown for evil’s rule, began upon Jesus dying on the Cross. Jesus Christ came down from Heaven to be the example of what a life living in complete obedience to God, requires. IF God says He is not of the ways of this world, we must not live in ways that conform to this world; but in ways that Jesus did, out of SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Yeshuay showed that Yahweh’s ways are not hypocritical…but merciful. HOPE is so power….it is the spring board to Love…….
Just as Jesus did, endure the trials….because it is evil trying to kill the hope in you.
Just as Jesus did, endure the heartache…because evil wants to make you not be able to love UNCONDITIONALLY…but only love CONDITIONALLY. Jesus DIED FOR ALL…..He told us to love not only those that love us…but those that hate us….for those who wrong us….for those that we know and don’t know. That is what He demonstrated at the Cross. His Love was for all of Mankind.
Jesus died for the sake of giving us hope, that we can return back to the Father in Heaven….the Father of all Creation.
