The Father Ordered the Sword Against His Son
Hear a prophecy of God the Father commanding the sword against His Son,
“Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd,
Against the Man who is My Companion,”
Says the LORD of hosts.
“Strike the Shepherd,
And the sheep will be scattered;
Then I will turn My hand against the little ones.
The sword, symbolizing an instrument of death, pictures the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ, but notice that Yahweh of Hosts would order the sword against His Shepherd, the One who was His Companion.
When the Jewish officers arrested Jesus, they scattered His disciples. How hard was it for the Father in heaven to watch? DR
All Things New
Incalculable for us will be the new experiences of heaven, including this, “Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful’” (Rev 21.5).
The earth and everything and everyone on it, gets older everyday. What shall heaven be like where God has made everything new?
Think on that the rest of the day and see what it does to your attitude! DR
