Not Legions of Angels, Not Swords, Just Jesus, 01JUL
What do we need to fulfill God’s ultimate eternal life plan for us? Just Jesus. Nothing more than love Jesus. Also if we try to be like Him we will help others realize that too.
What about just getting thru life just for today? Piecemeal, minute by minute living? Focus or fractured living? Even the times that we are forgetting that we are already saved? Well, we still need Jesus…
Jesus cried out to stop the apostles from fighting against His arrest in the Gesemene Garden that night. Jesus knew what they were forgetting about Him being handed over and Jesus said: “Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?” Matthew 26
Jesus ultimately knew God’s plan and could have stopped complying and not accepted His role. He could have asked for legions of angels – He could have shown more power than we could ever imagine… but instead Jesus accepted… Jesus was true as the truth… Jesus is our perfect role model… He knew the scriptures were to be fulfilled because He Himself was the fulfillment. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…
So now, in our angst moments, can we also call upon 12 legions of angels? Yes, I suppose so! Jesus certainly said that we can call upon the Father, His Father, Our Father. Would Jesus call upon 12 legions of angels now for us? I would have to believe that answer is YES, Jesus could – and I would expect that since the Spirit intercedes for us, God would send them… but guess what? Jesus asked the father to send us all the Holy Spirit!!! I am sure that Jesus can call upon people in the here and now to come together for us to make our way and to bless us with a path for our future.
Jesus wants us walking in the path to our future with Him.
