In this world one will find tribulations, circumstances that result in grief, conditions that in the natural mind make no sense at all.
Only as one awakens unto our Fathers heart and abides in His Living Word can suffering be seen in proper context.
This age was and is subjected to frustration from the garden, all with forethought and purpose, it’s purpose is to teach mankind a vital lesson, that mans independence upon the will of God results in chaos, and suffering is a part of this chaos.
Enter mankind’s Deliver some 2000 years ago, as the second Adam he came to establish order, design and functionality to mankind’s culture by introducing a new Way of life, all from the very heart of our Father.
As The Son of God he came to express our Fathers Kingdom and how we each are invited into it, in this He fully understood that there was great suffering in place.
His ever beckoning call to one and all is the voice throughout creation;
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
This rest is the resting from our sinful nature and our striving to accomplish making our lives Pure by our intellectual capacity or creativity, and relinquishing our desire, for the perfect will of our Father and His Kingdom.
Yet even as our Savior King he too suffered and here we see a vital key in understanding suffering;
“During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.” Hebrews 5: 7~9
As He was we are in the world, and no servant is greater than his Master, so we see that like him we will suffer all for a Divine purpose…to learn obedience, and in this to become like he is a son of our Father in Heaven.
Today mans day has drawn to a close and in this we all can take heart in knowing that suffering is likewise drawing to a close, for our Fathers heart has in store for one and all His Kingdom and in this one finds eternal Love, Joy and Peace.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
