If you’re arrested for committing a crime, you’ll know you’re going to suffer for the crime you committed. But if you’re arrested for a crime you didn’t commit, your heart will be troubled because you don’t know what the outcome might be. The worst thing that could happen to a man is to be arrested wrongly. If you come across a wicked judge who doesn’t have My fear, he’ll send you to where you don’t expect to be. You could be sentenced to life imprisonment or even sentenced to death just for nothing. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Great I Am That I Am. I Am the Great Judge. My judgement is right, fair and perfect.
When your Saviour was with His Disciples, He knew what was ahead of Him. He knew He would pass through many afflictions that would lead to His death, but He didn’t know how everything would be. While He was eating the Passover with His children, His heart was troubled. There He revealed who His betrayer would be. Late in the night, after I’ve taken the power away from Him, He could feel the heaviness of the cloud around Him. He knew what was coming His way. This was why He prayed to Me if I could take the cup of sorrow away from Him if possible. I told Him He had to drink it to save My children. What I created for Myself, Lucifer opened the door for them to escape; this brought curse upon the Earth and everything became corrupt. Just as He had no power over His coming, so also He had no power over His departure. Something must happen to Him before He could depart from this Earth. His blood is needed to heal the Earth and deliver My children. He must pass through it! This was the arrangement between Him and Me. I didn’t bring Him to this Earth for any enjoyment. I brought Him to suffer and return to Me.
While He was in the Garden praying, Satan was tormenting His soul terribly because I gave him the power. He didn’t know what to do any longer because He hadn’t passed through such horror before. All of you are foolish and stupid! You take My Word for granted. You take your life for granted. The video they’re showing all of you is completely different from what actually happened. It was more horrific than you can ever imagine! He was betrayed by one of the children of Jacob and arrested by the leaders of My own children whom I sent Him to save. All of you know what My Son passed through when He was arrested. If there’s no food in your stomach and they’re beating you, what do you think will happen to you? You’ve not eaten, and you’re bleeding. The energy that is supposed to sustain you, you’re losing everything gradually through your blood. How will you survive?
All of you should be very careful what you put your hands. I have cried and wailed that I will not forgive you on the last day if you fail to remove your hands from evil. Every day by day, you’re committing sin upon sin. Can you save yourself? Can you save somebody? For Me to bring your Saviour down to this Earth wasn’t easy for Me. I will not pardon you if you fail to do My will.
Jesus Christ was the Firstborn of our Father. He existed in Heaven with the Father a long time ago. He knows most work the Father did. He grew up with Lucifer in the bosom of Jehovah God our Father. He was sent down to repair what was destroyed by Lucifer through the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the Garden. He didn’t come to this Earth on His own accord. He came at the command of the Father. By this time, He had lived and done all the works the Father asked Him to do. The time for His departure is nigh. But how would it happen?
Judas Iscariot has been with Him for some years, but it was hidden from Him that he would be the one to betray Him. Remember that He was a Human Being like you and I even though He was more spiritual than physical. He lived a physical life like all of us, and as a human being, the Father will only reveal to you what He wants you to know. When Judas Iscariot joined the fold, Jesus didn’t know he would be the one to betray Him. It’s easy for a man to think of death but facing it, in reality, is very difficult. When all His physical work was completed, the time arose for His spiritual work to commence. This led to His betrayal. If He wasn’t betrayed, He wouldn’t have been arrested because no one could differentiate Him from His Disciples.
When He was arrested, an exam was set before Him, and He passed. If you’re faced with death, you have the right to either swallow your words or stand by everything you’ve said. When Pontius Pilate asked Him if He was the King of the Jews, He could have denied it. If He denied it, He would be released. If He denied it, that means He lied, and it would have been used against Him spiritually. Remember that He was beaten before He appeared before Pilate. The beating, slapping and pushing around was already weighing Him down because there was no food in His stomach. His strength was failing already! After Pilate finished questioning Him, he ordered Him to be flogged perhaps He might change His mind. He was given forty stokes through which He bled vigorously. He was brought back, and He still didn’t change His mind. He stood by every word He had said. When He finally appeared before Pilate for judgement, those who knew Him couldn’t recognise Him anymore because His whole body was covered in blood. Those who loved Him among the crowd were very angry. They could destroy anyone that treated any human being like this how much more is their Messiah. But their strength was limited because everything was meant to be so. Though He wasn’t meant to suffer in the hands of the Jews because there were other people in the land who could have carried it out.
All well said; everything happened in our favour. The Bible says in the Book of Isaiah 53:1-5, “Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
My beloved, rejoice for such grace that was given to you through Jesus Christ our Lord. He was arrested and punished so that grace could be given to you. Therefore, do not let this grace end in futility because the Father will pardon no one who tasted this grace and failed to enter His rest. I pray for you today that the grace which was given to you through the suffering of Jesus Christ shall never be in vain over your life in Jesus' name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
