Father It's Time
Did Jesus want to go to the Cross?
Even though Jesus was God, He was also part flesh.
I don't think anyone would have wanted to face what Jesus was about to endure. However His love for us overruled his fear.
Thank you Jesus!
The death of Jesus has always been central to the message of God and His love for mankind. But the death of Jesus was also sought after by the father of lies, satan. Everything in the Old Testament pointed forward to the time when the Son of God would die for the sins of the world. All of the prophesies, ceremonies and laws were looking forward to the death of Jesus. The Father's plan from before the foundation of the world was for His Son to die on the cross for the sins of the world. For without His death on the cross, there would be no resurrection from the dead and without the resurrection there would be no salvation.
On the other hand, satan has always wanted the Son of God to die anywhere else but the cross. If Jesus made it to the cross and died as a sacrifice for sins and a substitute for mankind, then satan's reign of terror would be terminated. That is why Jesus would cry out "IT IS FINISHED" when He was about to die on the cross.
Jesus was born to die. Jesus was born to die for the sins of the world. Jesus was born to die on the cross. His death on the cross would bring forgiveness to mankind. Death on the cross would give victory to God's grace. Death on the cross would give glory to His Name.
This is why in all of my artwork, I will always give Jesus the glory and I do mean ALL!
