“39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”
YH’shua’s choice here? certainly not what many so-called pastors teach today – a modern Jesus that is elevated to the status of supreme deity, who’s blood allows for anyone to be forgiven, regardless they fall away from his lead, that a true Hebrew Messiah, he who teaches that of obedience to the Father (YHWH, the Word and Works of Elohim) becomes evident.
Obedience proving the main theme of the set-apart scriptures, and an affirmation to what YH’shua’s precious sacrifice confirms, that by having chosen to lay down his life – paying obeisance to the Word and Works of Elohim, his purpose would prove clear as day, to teach by example – that those who follow same have a means to achieving the Father’s end – eternal salvation!!!! HalleluYH!!!!
What say you, “Is obedience to the Father (YHWH, the Word and Works of Elohim) the only reason YH’shua “follows” (asah: to do or make, accomplish, bear, fulfill, etc..) what YHWH’s hosts prophesied?” Food for thought!
The answer that’s provided by the Hebrew, not Greek, Messiah, may surprise you: THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!!!!
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that “I do shall he do also” (in context – ga’al: a deliver-er, a- redeemer, etc..); and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
