Betrayal is Bitter than Denial: Who could have endured it better than JESUS Christ our Lord !
That was a different Cup !The designation of a Son called for an exclusive Elevation through suffering and Endurance !
A String of Strong Phrases by JESUS !
Matthew 14:42 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”
The last supper table talk included exchange of Emotional phrases !!
The disciples said “Surely you don’t Mean me Lord!(vs 22)
Then Judas, the one who would betray him,said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”(Vs.25)
Peter declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not.”
This is how JESUS felt the Pain of Betrayal & Denial:
Matthew 26:24 depicts the deep Agony of Betrayal in our Lord JESUS Christ
Matthew 26:20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve.
21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”
22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
23 Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me.
24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him.But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him,said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”
Jesus answered, “You have said so.”Peter’s Betrayal ! Unrecognised until the Rooster crowed!
Peter declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not.”
Matthew 14:21 Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “today—yes, tonight—before the rooster crows twice you yourself will disown me three times.”
31 But Peter insisted emphatically, “Even if I have to die with you,I will never disown you.” And all the others said the same.
Mark 14: 66 While Peter was below in the courtyard,one of the servant girls of the high priest came by.
67 When she saw Peter warming himself,she looked closely at him.“You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus,”she said.
68 But he denied it. “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about,”he said, and went out into the entryway.
69 When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, “This fellow is one of them.”
70 Again he denied it.After a little while, those standing near said to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.”
71 He began to call down curses, and he swore to them, “I don’t know this man you’re talking about.”
72 Immediately the rooster crowed the second time.Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.”And he broke down and wept.
Betrayal is a momentary Decision leaving a Lasting effect on the Victim and The opposer !But JESUS was the one and the only one who could change a permanent decisive action of Judas into a 3 day confinement in the Grave where his power unleashed deep into the very grounds shaking the guards of the grave, till it gave way and broke upon shouting “This is Resurrection Power”death could Not hold him !He arose from the Grave!The stones rolled away and the Angels cried out !He is not here!He is Risen !The one who called out Lazarus from The Realm Of the dead ,Would you think he was powerless with his own life ? Yet,he was Humbly submissive He was under a mandate of Divine obedience and surrender to the Will of God !
John 2:19Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”20 They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”
21But the temple he had spoken of was his body.Now he is Risen in your hearts!Enjoy that beautiful communion with him as he is intimate in you Now !Talk to God !Fellowship and Commune with him!You are in a beaitiful blood Covenant with the lord JESUS Christ !
1 Corinthians 11:25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

#Demand or Desire ? #Design VS Dent! When God thought of Man he Desired ,a being after his very own image “A Human being “.Man’s Desire for himself allowed him to demand his way out to the Maker !We are now stuck between God’s desires and Man’s demands .Inference:The Clay in a Potter’s hand does not get to demand a shape !Once the clay is Moulded into A Man,The Man’s mouth pronounces Demands against the Desires of the Potter!When God made the First Man Adam,There was no room for Choice of Demand for the pattern or Design of Man in terms of Colour,Size,Time of birth ,Place of birth etc ..He just Created !But the fallen nature of Man has left us with a Dent Called “Demands “Jeremiah 18:1-4 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:2″Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.”3So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel.4But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.Let us yield our selves to the word of God in Vs 4 “As seemed best to Him”.
It’s BAU in the Throne Room
It is BAU (Business as Usual )In The Throne room of God in Heaven to Answer Prayers done in line with God’s will.John 14:13 KJV And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Our Answered Prayers demand Thanksgiving and a discrete understanding that It is BAU (Business as Usual )in Heaven for God to answer all our Prayers that are in line with his Will.Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
It is of interest to know and enjoy the Relationship and The Authority the Father has given us to access his courts and see our prayers breaking through heaven and landing on earth as a breakthrough (An answered Prayer ) when we enter the Throne room placing a desire addressing Trinity , Attention is turned on according to Psalm 147:15 He sends his command to the earth;his word runs swiftly.
After my prayer time this morning ,as I opened my bible to listen to what God is Going to speak in turn ;he spoke to me through this word , Psalm 147:15 He sends his command to the earth his word runs swiftly.I was so thrilled to write what I felt the very moment as I received the revelation of what this word meant to me .This word shows us How faithful God is to answer us when we look for a command from his throne room to go forth on our behalf on various things that we pray for from time to time ,For it is written Isaiah 33:6 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
He remains faithful to his word and he commands his word swiftly to the earth on our behalf and he uses all his creation; The Heavens ,The earth ,The wind ,The chariots and The hosts of heavens ready to discharge and execute the command from his mouth.
When God is in his Throne room and we access him ;we have accessed the word-Jesus Christ.This word ,Jesus Christ is a seal of Authority over all of God’s orders concerning us .When God answers our prayers sending a command over our life ,the answered prayers are nothing but God sending the word (Jesus Christ )to accomplish the command.
Trinity is at work when you pray to bring forth all creation in response to your prayers .Every answered prayer is a sign of God moving on your behalf with all of heaven to his aid to bring forth his purposes in your life and God says this is not a difficult task but a BAU in heaven.This happens even when you whisper a desire in an unknown corner of your heart and you don’t even realise you have been sent an Answer .Many times we are not thankful because we think we haven’t Prayed about it and God doesn’t know .On the other hand our desires have gained GOD’S attention however the answers from God haven’t gained OUR attention.Surely God wants us to place our requests at his feet and watch for answers and be thankful .Colossians 4:2 (KJV) Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
God only has to speak and command from the control room on his Creation for execution of our Prayers.
Isaiah 45:12 (KJV)It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it.I stretched out the heavens with My handsAnd I ordained all.
When God speaks his word never returns void.Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
You can be very sure of how God moves swiftly on the wind mounted on the Cherub to answer you in your distress and troubled times of life when you read Psalm 86: 6-10
6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
Yes he will bow the heavens and come down to answer our prayers .Praying with this understanding helps us access the available resources of heaven and Authority that the lord desires for us to avail .Answered prayers have a Finger touch of God ! Your Breakthrough is Nigh!!www.themeasuringline.com
