It is ok to ask Father the question, “why has thou forsaken me,” but it is not ok to allow the flesh a get out of the fire card just because it hurts. Why do you think that Jesus allowed us to hear Him say this to the Father? The flesh is going to hurt: there is no way around it. There will be times when no one in your inner circle will stay focus long enough to support you thru the suffering of your soul. Your mission is your mission only: there will be other times when you could pay a price that cost you everything if you speak out of anger to anyone other than the “Rock.” Listen, if you are truly willing to get to the finish, you are going to need access to the Father as did Jesus. Jesus is not going to allow you that access if you are not willing to put down the will of your flesh, and replace it will the will of the Father. Once we move into the neighborhood where it cost you some cleansing of your will, your whole soul will feel it. We don’t find Jesus having sweat like drops of blood falling to the ground until it came time for the remainder of His soul to surrender: not my will, but thou will be done. Contrary to popular belief, Jesus was the first King of soul that understood the anguish of the soul that can make a man want to say please, please, please. lol.
It is truly no laughing matter. Jesus said it, “if it is possible, let this cup pass from me”: now if you have an ear you can hear the please, please, please in there every where, “yet not as I will, but as You will.” Jesus knows already before He even ask the question the only answer that can be given is that He finishes what He came here to do. This is the reason that it is ok to ask the Father the question, why has thou forsaken me? As long as you know before you ask that this is one request that you are asking amiss. When you begin to step to Father’s neighborhood, playtime is over. He’s not going to zap you for asking that question because death to anything hurts, and this includes the death to your soul. It hurts the will to give up what is rightfully its God given right. God gave man a soul to do what it wills: God just didn’t factor in the fact that it would fight so hard against that which He wills us to do. And again, the Devil causes so much havoc that his influence from back in the garden is still the one thing that affects us the greatest today: the soul’s desire to have its own will done.
It’s like this with God. We know that He knows all things, but the one thing that Father does not just bank on anymore is a particular man’s outcome. Yeah, ever since Adam started us down that road, Father has not found peace in looking at the finish when we are involved: feel God’s pain, feel God’s pain. Man, you know how it hurts when the one thing you love so much, brings so much disappointment. This is why God sent Jesus right? if you want something done right or if you want it done the way that you want it done, you best send your equal to pull it off. So Father already knows that He has the victory of His will being done the way that He wanted it done by way of His only begotten Son Jesus. Now what Father does with us adopted sons is to call many of us, and out of the many that art called, there will be a few chosen to step up to the plate to play a little kill that soul ball if you will. Father has this thing that He does to protect His little heart, I first remember Him doing it when He sent Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. God really wanted to be surprised in the outcome of this venture so He turned off the know it all button just long enough to not know if Abraham was going to be one of the few chosen who would be able to win the game of kill that soul ball if you will. You remember how Abraham sneaks off from Sarah, he couldn’t tell her could he? She laughed at giving birth to a baby at her earlier old age. It’s no telling what she would have done when told it was time to go kill it at her later old age: yeah, best leave her out of this one. Back to God who is over there just waiting to see the outcome of this blue chip prospect, who He had recruited earlier out of Terah, ready to take his turn at playing kill that soul ball if you will. And just like a little boy at his first major league ball game, God jumped out of his seat with excitement as Abraham began to bring the knife down, and while in doing this also bringing the soul down to its knees as he wills it. As God sends the Angel to stop Abraham from laying a hand on the boy, God stops this thing that He does to protect His heart from being possibly disappointed by many men and says, “for now I know that thou fearest God.” Did God really not know already, but it is clear that God does expect us to put our money where our mouth. Who out there is ready for some Fathertime, and show Father that you are ready to win at kill that soul ball if you will?!! Let’s Go Forth And Have God Say To Each of Us, ” For Now I know That Thou Fearest God.”
