prairwarur: JESUS TOOK YOUR PLACE SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE HIS
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Do you know that it was at the cross that Jesus addressed His Father as “God” for the first time? He had always addressed His Father as “Father.” But at Calvary’s tree, He addressed His Father as “God.”
Jesus lost that Father-Son relationship when He was representing you and carrying your sins at the cross so that today, you can call God “Abba! Father!” (see Romans 8:15) and have a loving father-son relationship with God forever. Jesus was forsaken by God and His world became very dark on that lonely hill so that in your darkest hour, God will always say to you, “I will never leave you nor forsake you!”
At the time when Jesus needed God most, God turned His back on Him. God had to turn His back on His Son because His eyes are too holy to behold all the sin that was in His Son’s body. And because God turned His back on Jesus, He will never turn His back on you. Instead, you will see God’s face of favor shining on you all the time!
Jesus also took your place of no protection at the cross. For the first time, He gave up divine protection so that you can have it every day of your life! And because He became sin, He took your curse at the cross so that today, as you take His gift of righteousness, you receive only blessings from God.
Jesus received the full brunt of God’s wrath in His body once and for all when He carried your sins. All of God’s anger and condemnation fell on Him, consuming all your sins until God’s wrath was exhausted.
Today, God is not angry with you. The body of Jesus absorbed everything—your sins, curses, and God’s anger and condemnation.
So live life expecting to see not the judgment, but the goodness and blessings of God!

CannonballSimp: A good message but I have to disagree with part of it. "God had to turn His back on His Son bc His eyes are too holy to behold all the sin that was in His son's body, etc. This implies that sin is greater than God which is of course not true. I believe that when Jesus quoted Psalm 22:1 "My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?" He was actually speaking not to God but to the religious leaders who as learned men would have known that scripture and seen the prophecy of Jesus's sacrifice for the human race being fulfilled before their very eyes. This is a testament to his undying love for us. Even from the cross He will still ministering to the ones who had put Him there...bc of His pure, awesome and unselfish love. Maybe I'm wrong. May the Lord forgive me if so. God bless and keep you safe as always <3

prairwarur: I'm great! How are you? I continue to pray for you, Sister in Jesus! Please continue to pray for me as we navigate our way through these last days. Let's continue to lift up the Name of Jesus! His Name is the Name above all other names, by which we are saved. Amen
prairwarur: I wanted to let you know, too, that we should not confuse medical hemp with marijuana. Most folks think of "smoking pot", but this is not the case. Medical Canabis is beneficial. Hemp has been used as medicine for centuries, until governments decided to ban and outlaw it. Bad move! But, if everyone goes to this type of natural medicine it really harms the big pharmaceutical companies. They don't like that! So, their move was to have their friends in Congress to make it illegal. That's one way to make sure they profit off of the people and to their detriment.
