. . . OKAY, this is actually about TWO reversals.

 

THE GREAT REVERSAL #1

“Jesus said, ‘The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.’” Luke 9:22

 

LONG, LONG AGO . . .

MAN was formed, or raised, out of the earth by the hand of the living God Who desires us.

MAN was killed spiritually. More like suicide by a choice to disconnect and do life his own way and be his own god.

MAN was then rejected by his perfect Creator. Why? God pre-destined all of us to be in perfect communion with Him and to multiply His Life in the whole world. But, by design, living as vessels of perfect, selfless, pure Love is beyond our flesh’s ability.

MAN, since the separation, has suffered much.

RAISED. KILLED. REJECTED. SUFFERING

We are human! Selfish! Fallible! Sick! Dying!

Someone please save us from our own self-destruction!

 

But the Lord reversed man’s fall:

 GOD OF CREATION suffered, beaten to a pulp as a man

THE ALL POWERFUL was rejected by His own beloved creation

THE INNOCENT ONE was killed, surrendered His life willfully for us

JESUS the Christ was raised . . . so we can LIVE!

 

THE GREAT REVERSAL #2

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

 

Satan is the Thief of thieves, a murderer from the very beginning. He comes ONLY . . .

To STEAL salvation. Satan uses man’s religion and manipulates our selfishness to avert us from receiving Heaven’s redemptive truth

To KILL. False beliefs about God and man leave us spiritually dead and inhibit our intended freedom

To DESTROY. Once the thief has your heart, you’re on a slow path of destruction; rendered worthless

 

But the Lord reversed man’s self-destruction, for Jesus Christ came once and for all to . . .

To GIVE you Life

To LIVE inside you and empower you

To RENEW restore, heal, reinstate your authority

What He came to do He did. It Is Finished.”

 

Suffered. . .Rejected. . .Killed…. RAISED….Given . . .Living. . .Renewed

Christ’s Resurrection

His power alive in me.
