Creator, Healing, Holy Spirit, Jesus, Living in Jesus, power in simplicity, Sacrificing, the very Breath of God
You have drawn breath… you were brought into existence. That is already a countless blessing. Identify with your Creator, and experience unity with God and a relationship with such depths that your physical mind cannot even begin to wrap around it; or identify with sin, and experience separation from God and the deepest loss ever able to experience. Accepting the Sacrificial Blood of the Lamb declares that you identify with God, but struggle with sin. However, actively living moment by moment in Jesus allows that struggle to miraculously lessen, as you experience your Healer’s presence becoming greater within you, which manifests the Mystery of the Gospel. Jesus’ greatest agony wasn’t the physical harshness He endured on the cross, and the events leading up to it, but it was the separation He had to experience from His Father, God, in order to accomplish God’s greatest mission, bridging the sinner’s gap, and intimately reconnecting us back to Him, our Creator, our Sole-Provider, allowing Him to fully become our Abba. Jesus knew He would be reconnected with Abba, but it was those painstaking, heart-wrenching moments without Him that He unbearably suffered through. That is a powerful statement to us! Through His suffering, He actively healed our physical lives with His spiritual existence, clearly showing us that He doesn’t want us to needlessly suffer through this world, nor go through things without Him. The greatest suffering is already healed, becoming the very root of all healing, because at the point of sacrificing is the point of healing, wow~the forgiving strength of the Great I Am’s protection turned wholly to us!
I’ve been out of touch with the Internet for a while and am now catching up with your posts again. I was especially struck by your sentence that Jesus doesn’t want us to unnecessarily suffer though thing without him. Jesus suffered that period of time of separation without Abba, knew the agony of it, and prepared a way for that agony to never be repeated for us – as long as we use our free-will choice to remain always in His presence. How like us as parents we try to warn our children of harmful behaviours that needlessly caused us pain (like touching a hot stove) to steer our children to smarter choices to save them pain – if they would but trust and obey.

I’m smiling because I just read the account in Desiree’s story of what the Lord revealed to her about Jesus’ trials in the Garden of Gethsemene a few minutes ago and it reflects what I just wrote last night. What a confirmation of His divine plan!
If you want to read another side of the struggle in Gethsemene, you might check out the chapter in the book “Desire of Ages” by E. G. White. It’s available for free online.
