EASTER THOUGHTS FROM
THE HEART OF GOD THROUGH KAREN BUNKER
APRIL 20, 2014
12:20 - 33
And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to
worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip,
which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying,
Sir, we would see Jesus. Philip cometh and telleth Andrew:
and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. And Jesus answered
them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should
be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn
of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but
if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his
life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this
world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me,
let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my
servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save
me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Father, glorify thy name.
Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both
glorified it, and will glorify it again. The people
therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it
thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus
answered and said, This
voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. Now is the
judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world
be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will
draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he
The time had come for the feast of the
Passover. The end of the life of Jesus is growing near and
He, like any man would be, is apprehensive of the suffering.
Jesus admits that His soul is troubled, but He was born to
suffer what lay ahead. One of my favorite parts of this
passage of the scriptures is when Jesus, the King of the
Universe, humbles himself to wash the feet of his disciples.
(Beginning in Chapter 13: 1 - 12. ) As, Jesus removed his
garments and laid them aside, He took a towel and covered
Himself with it. One by one, he washed their feet and He had
conversation with them. Knowing that they probably did not
understand why He had done this, Jesus asked them, Know ye
what I have done to you"?
(Chapter 13: 13 - 21)
Ye call me Master and Lord: and
ye say well; for so I am.
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye
also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have
given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to
you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is
not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater
than he that sent him. If ye know these things,
happy are ye if ye do them. I speak not of you
all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may
be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up
his heel against me. Now I tell you before it come,
that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever
I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him
that sent me.
When Jesus had thus said, he
was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said,
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
that one of you shall betray me.
IMAGINE THE SHOCK OF WHAT THEY
HAD JUST HEARD.
There is still a lot to the story. I wrote a rather long
poem that is a combined telling of the birth of Jesus Christ
and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I am
going to let you follow the link and see and hear the rest
of this story. Our Lord Jesus, sacrificed His all to come to
earth and suffer like no one else ever has. It was love that
sent Him down to us the first time and it will be love that
brings Him to us a second time.
enjoy the rest of this story and think about all that our
Father God and Savior have sacrificed so that the sin of man
could be overcome by an innocent Lamb. Please click on the
