Jesus Was Forsaken By God...

Do you know that it was at the cross that Jesus addressed His Father as "God" for the first time? He had always addressed His Father as "Father."  However, at Calvary's tree, He addressed His Father as "God." 


Matthew 27:46, "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying. "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"  At the time when Jesus needed God most, God turned His back on Him.  God had to turn His back on His Son because His eyes were too holy to behold all the sin that was upon His Son.  And because God turned His back on Jesus, He will NEVER turn His back on you.  Instead, you will see God's face of favor shining on you all the time!

 

Jesus had lost that Father-Son relationship when He was representing you and carrying your sins at the cross so that today, you can call God "Abba! Father!" (Romans 8:15) and have a loving Father-son relationship with God forever.  Jesus was forsaken by God.  His world became very dark on that lonely hill so that in your darkest hour, God will always say to you, "I will never leave you nor forsake you!" (Hebrews 13:5). 

 

Jesus received the full brunt of God's wrath in His body once and for all when He carried your sins.  All of God's anger and condemnation fell on Him, consuming all your sins until God's wrath was exhausted.  Jesus also took your place of no protection at the cross.  For the first time, He gave up divine protection so that you can have it every day of your life!  Because He became sin, He took your curse at the cross so that today, as you take His gift of righteousness, you receive only blessings from God. 

 

Today, God is not angry with you.  The sacrifice and the body of Jesus absorbed everything.  He absorbed our sins, curses, and God's anger and condemnation.  So live your life expecting to see not the judgment, but the goodness and blessings of God!

 

What are some blessings you've received from Father?
