When Jesus said that he could only do what he saw the Father doing, what was he doing?
Healing the sick, setting those bound by oppression free, loving the least of them and stopping to listen and do whatever the people asked of him. If they needed healing of blindness. he healed it. If there child or servant was sick, he went and healed them (even the Leaders that hated him whose children were dead, he raised them from the dead)
ALL that called out to him for help, he turned and helped them. When the woman caught in the act of adultery was brought before him, and the people wanted to stone her to death, Jesus didn’t agree or chastise the woman or the men wanting to stone her, instead he said, “Let the one who is without sin be the first to cast a stone”. Starting with the oldest, the men began walking away. Jesus stood up and asked the woman if no one had condemned her, and she said, “No one, Lord”. He said, “Neither do I condemn you, now go and sin no more.” John 8
He knows the weakness of the flesh, and he knows the temptations to blame and shame others, because it is nothing new. Blaming others has been the way of man since the garden of Eden, but Jesus came to teach man a better way to live and think. He wanted us to understand that forgiveness and mercy bring people out of bondage and keeps the enemy from causing more destruction in the world.
We are not naive to the ways of the devil. He has been using the same tactics since the beginning. He has no creativity or good in him, so everything he does is a fake/copy that is meant to harm the people and not help them. He is a liar and has been lying since the beginning. Everything he does is a lie. There is no truth in him. He wants to kill, steal and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life more abundantly. Choose God and believe and accept only what is good. If you are willing to accept sickness (evil), and you believe that you are supposed to be poor (evil),
and that hating (evil) anyone who is gay or not yet a believer is what God wants you to have/believe, you have been deceived.
God forgives all and shows mercy to all. He helps all that ask, and He does whatever it is that we ask Him to do for us.
He accepts all people, and He loves without restrictions or criteria or qualifications.
He is Love, and we are all loved whether we know it or believe it, It doesn’t change the truth of His everlasting love that is waiting to be poured out to all who ask for His help and turn to Him and find the peace and love that this world can’t ever compete with or make up for with anything it has to offer.
If all people would truly turn to God and not just what they read or hear about God, but understand that God is a real person that longs to be known by His creation and be close with each and every one of us, there would be nothing but love, hope and faith remaining in this earth.
Love being the greatest of the three!
I know that people have their differences, and they want to get revenge or paid back for the wrongs they have suffered, but hate only brings more darkness and evil into the world.
I know that many have been deprived of a family or have grown up without love and many suffered terrible crimes of abuse, rape, and so much more, but there is nothing that can ever stop the evil cycles and break the chains of those traumas like the perfect love of the Father God.
Fear is what causes most of the issues that we all see and worry about everyday in this world, but in perfect love that fear is all washed away. God’s relentless mercy and incorruptible love for us is stronger than all the lies and shame, guilt,sorrow and grief that anyone has ever incurred.
How do I know this? I have walked through just about every struggle and fallen short in every area and messed up more times than I could ever remember, but through it ALL, God never gave up or turned away. With every sin, and every sorrow, He was with me and His arms wrapped around me when there was nothing that could ease my pain. He just held me and lifted up my face to wipe my streaming tears away. He didn’t want to see me struggle, and He didn’t want to force me to do things another way. He knew my mistakes, and He knew my shame. He wanted me to give it all to Him each and every day. As soon as I would release those things, He would pour out blessings that I was then able to receive without the enemy stealing them away.
