March 11, 2018| Matthew 26-27 | The Silence of God

Silence: The experience of unchanging circumstances.

We always ask the Lord to please take ____ away from me. In the chapter Matthew we read that Jesus prayed to God the exact thing. He secondly prayed to God if someone has to do it he will…for God’s will be done.

But in the chapter did God answer Jesus’ prayers? Nope, Jesus didn’t hear a single word from God. He prayed 3 times with no answer and his circumstances didn’t change after those 3 different times of prayer.

Abandonment: The experience of suffering alone.

Jesus calls out to God, why have you forsaken me? And nothing changed so he ask again why have you abandoned me? Now why would our heavenly Father do that? When Jesus was dying on the cross he was taking on everyone’s sin alone so we can live in righteousness of The Lord. God has nothing to do with Sin. Everything good is God. Everything evil is us. Jesus suffered in silence and alone so we never have to be alone, so we don’t have to suffer in silence. He did all of this so we will NEVER be for forsaken.

March 4, 2018 |Matthew 26 |Betrayed and Denied 

1)Betrayal: Stabbed in the back.

• The motive

• The appeal

• The kiss | “Jesus said, “My friend, go ahead and do what you have come for.”’ Matthew‬ ‭26:50‬

2)Denial: Deserted in the moment of need.

•Protest of loyalty

•Protest for self-protection

Are you ready to be healed? We need not to forget Jesus has had the same wounds we have or encounter. By his wounds we are healed. The sacrifice suffers so the worshippers don’t have too. Jesus has already suffered for our enemies sins against us. He can take away all the pain. So take your wound and give it to Jesus. He can carry that burden because he already experienced it himself. God wants us to live in freedom, so don’t waste Jesus’ suffering by holding on to our wounds. Because the scripture states “he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” | Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬
