Verse above it, to make clear who is being spoken of: pic only
are joining with their kinsmen, their nobles, and are taking on themselves a curse and an oath to walk in God’s law, which was given through Moses, God’s servant, and to keep and to observe all the commandments of God our Lord, and His ordinances and His statutes; – Nehemiah 10:29 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Nehemiah10:29&version=NASB
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree’” (Galatians 3:10–13).
I agree, yet anyone who has followed Christ enough, perhaps feels ‘the curse side’ of the blessing?
I know I have!
For the separation alone…
In my case I wonder if He has made me celibate for Him. (A real doozy this one) (though one I am coming to admire & appreciate the simplicity of) (for human relationships are a doozy within themselves!)
The dislike, the disrespect, the derision…
Ya know, the humiliation & rejection Christ Himself received?
The closer we walk with Christ, the more we experience everything He went through, in some way.
Thaddeus 10, 2019
Speaking of which…
The part where Yeshua begs the Lord to remove this cup from me?
All those raised, shaped into a position of authority by the Lord, go through similar pain.
Some call it the press, another called it the Ark.
Both speak of a dark place. A place one must endure much, so much you want OUT!
Who would willing go into the olive press?
Would you prefer the flood My Love?
Ha, ha…very funny Lord.
Either way is painful.
Just one has you gain strength, while the other…
You just die.
And not a good death, a death reserved for those who turned against Elohim.
Who rejected Him.
Who preferred the comfort & stability of now, verses joy, peace & the Lord’s Strength.
But I don’t wanna!
I say as I walk forward and lay down in the press.
It hurts! Everyone and I do mean EVERYONE is against you, throwing stones.
With no relief of death, no relief of unconsciousness.
Only when it is finished, will it stop.
Will you rise again, stronger than ever before!
So strong in spirit that you scare people!
You frighten demons and ignite fires in another’s soul.
Life! Is required!
To raise up those dry bones, eh?
I must be stronger! I need to be!
For sooooo many others!
Keep my eyes here Lord as I want the anointing to be pure, so pure…
So powerful that just a drop…
That the imps will not be able to run fast enough, to escape the instantaneous transformation!
Everywhere the drops touch.
That I do want!
And I willingly endure a little more… bashing of my character, my faith, my heart.
For You, I do this… because it will make You happy, the One I love, happy.
I’ve endured abusive relationships.
I will give 3, now 6 yrs, in the press, if that is what it takes!
Ty for the reminder Yeshua!
