An Exhortation From The Father's Heart To Yours: Jesus Was Not Forsaken!
So many in My church are wearied and some believe I have abandoned them in their time of need like I did Jesus on the Cross. The teaching taking place in My Body that states that I forsook Jesus on the Cross because I cannot look at sin is an erroneous teaching.
Did I look upon and see Adam's sin and nakedness in the Garden? Did I send Jonah to Nineveh because I had not seen their sin or because I did see it? What about Sodom and Gomorrah? What about the sins of the elders in My holy Temple, or Eli's sons who were seen sinning in the doorway of the Temple? How did Jesus know about the sins of the woman at the well? I saw them, and because I saw them, Jesus saw them. The list of sins that I have seen in all of mankind is exceedingly long, Church, so to say that I cannot look upon sin is simply not true. Have I not looked at and seen yours?
I looked upon sins for many centuries before sending My Only Begotten Son, so to think or teach that Jesus was forsaken on the Cross because I cannot look upon sin is a fanciful and false teaching. It came from man trying to explain why Jesus would cry out in His final hour, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" Instead of consulting Me about what happened, they sought their own wisdom. Man's wisdom will never produce righteousness.
So where was I when Jesus cried out on the Cross? I was with Him! I never left Him nor forsook Him. His body was in anguish, His emotions were on trial. He was distressed and distraught in the Garden of Gethsemane even before the crucifixion began. Those final moments were so excruciating that even He, the Son of God, could not hear or feel Me. Because Jesus believed that I left Him did not mean that I had left Him - as it is with you in your hour of anguish. My Word overrides your feelings. My Word says that I will never leave nor forsake you. Learn to trust My word over your feelings or ability to understand.
Jesus was fully God and fully man and in that hour He suffered yet did not sin. This is Gospel. This is why He is the perfect sacrifice. But he cried out that I had left Him when I did not. Jesus was man and He got thirsty and hungry. Jesus was weary at times. Jesus was one person in the human race just like you. He thought I had left Him in His worst hour. This was not a sin for Jesus to think I had left Him, nor is it a sin if you think this in your hour of distress. I release you from that guilt now!
This is why the teaching that I cannot look upon sin is so dangerous because it relays the message that I will not help or even look at you if you are in sin. I do My best work in people's lives when they are smack dab in the middle of a life of debauchery or legalism! This I have demonstrated over and over again. If you need proof just look to the lives of Mary Magdalene or the apostle Paul! Perhaps your own life is all the further you need look.
Remember - I loved mankind so much that I sent My Son to die to be the Atonement for your sins - sins that I saw and still see. Sin has never kept Me from reaching out to you and when all sins were placed upon Jesus, they did not keep Me from Him. The enemy of your soul, Satan, cannot keep Me from loving you or being with you in your time of need, but he can keep you from believing I Am there. Lift your shield of faith and quench the fiery darts of doubt. Come boldly to My Throne of Grace in your hour of need and receive mercy.
I Am the One who loves your soul. Who are you going to believe - the enemy of your soul or the Lover of your soul?
