Certain messages from Jesus two British anonymous women recorded in the devotional, “God Calling” and “God at Eventide” really stirred me enough to add them here in this blog. They give glimpses of Jesus’s life on this Earth:
John 14:12– And greater works than these shall you do, because I go to My Father”.
“While I was on the earth, to those with whom I came in contact, Mine was a lost cause. Even My disciples only believed, half-doubting, half-wondering. When they all forsook Me and fled it was not so much fear of My enemies as the certainty that My Mission , however beautiful they thought it, had failed.
In spite of all I had taught them, in spite of the revelation of the Last Supper, they had secretly felt sure that when the final moment came, and the hatred of the Pharisees was declared against Me I should sound some call to action, and that I should lead My many followers and found My earthly kingdom. Even the disciples who had eyes to see My Spiritual Kingdom had thought material forces had proved too strong for Me.
But with My Resurrection came hope. Faith revived. They would remind each other of all I had said. They would have the assurance of My Divinity, Messiahship. And they would have all My Power in the Unseen- the Holy Spirit- to help them.
Those who lived in the Kingdom were to do the work- greater works than I was able to do. Not a greater Power shown, not a greater Life lived, but, as men recognized My Godhead, opportunities for works in My Name would increase.”
The Secret Path
Matthew 3:15 -“Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness“
“Upon this I founded My three years’ Mission on Earth on the acceptance of the difficulty and discipline of life so as to share that human life with My followers in all the ages.
Much that you both must accept in life is not to be accepted as being necessary for you personally, but accepted, as I accepted it, to set an example, to share in the sufferings and difficulties of mankind.
In this “to share” means “to save”. And there, too, for you both… the same must be true as was true of Me. “He saved others. Himself He cannot save.” Beloved, you are called to save and share in a very special way. The way of sorrows if walked with Me, the Man of Sorrows, is a path kept sacred and secret for My nearest and dearest- those whose one desire is to do all for Me. To sacrifice all for Me, to count, as My servant Paul did, “all things but loss so that they might gain Me.”
But, dreary as that Path must look to those who view it only from afar, it has tender lights and restful shades that no other walk in life can give.”
