KEY SCRIPTURE: John 11:50 KJV” Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.”
Satan had orchestrated to end the glorious activities of Jesus, and also put Him to an open shame. He had generated anger, bitterness mixed with tons of envy in the hearts of these religious leaders to crucify Jesus. To them, they were achieving their heart desire. This was an evil plan, yet in the plans and purposes of God it was the greatest act to settle once and for all, the redemption of mankind. The bible said if these people knew that the crucifixion of Jesus would have meant the salvation of all men, they would not have done so.1Co 2:8 KJV” Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
These people really meant to inflict so much suffering on the Lord Jesus. They took Him to the whipping post, and mutilated His body by using whips laded with lead balls, which tore out the flesh each time a stroke was given To them they were punishing Him yet in the mind of God, the sicknesses that were to come on men, were legally being paid for. Each stroke meant the healing of various diseases from people like you and me. They terribly meant it for evil yet the God of all love and wisdom was working it out for our good.
They stripped Him naked and nailed Him on the cross, to disgrace Him to the whole world, God turned it for good, by making, it breaks every power of lack, poverty and shame from you and me. He was very rich, yet on the cross, He could not even get a hand to drive away flies that came to sit on any portion of His body. He became a perfect picture of poverty, so that you could become a perfect example of the rich individual..2nd Corinth 8:9.
Dearly beloved as you may be going through this material, Satan is scheming his evil agenda against you, or there may be a condition that may be threatening, your life. Please give no thought to it. God with the so-called evil situation, is working out a glorious outcome for you. The power for MAKING God’s program to become real is to believe in what He has said. Give no thought to the threats of the evil one. He is weak, so long as you place no fear in Him. Your faith in God in such moments is the determinant of events. If your faith says yes to God, success, and celebration is bound to be your outcome. Feed your faith and keep praising God, for making every evil good.
Glory be to God, I am not moved by whatever threat, challenge or problem that Satan may throw at me. My faith is solidly in the word of God, and that makes all things work out to my good and victory. I am not moved by what I see or by what happens, but I am moved by my faith. I always have what I believe, not what happens.
