He Meant if for My Good
“And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things,” Luke 23:44-49.
“People will know! My People will remember this darkness as I did.
The sixth to the ninth hour darkness will prevail and then people will know how I suffered, how I travailed in pain and sorrow for a dying, lying World.
The World lied to My Father that they would receive ‘The Messiah’. When I came — they denied My existence.
I was put out to pasture like an animal.
My birth was humble I did not ask for royal treatment — yet I was Royalty. I humbled Myself to The Cross. I followed My Father’s instructions until My death.
Many turned their back on Me. And now all will see what it is like to be in utter darkness. But this shall not be the end.
My Children, come closer and you will learn of Me. Take My Yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I AM meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
I AM moving you into to a place of humility — completely depending on a Shepherd, as sheep.
This World has caused you to function as so many things and now I AM calling you to come back into your rightful place as Sheep.
Sheep are completely dependent on Shepherds to lead and give instructions.
My Children, you have strayed so far away from the pasture of safety.
Come back home.
Do not fear the darkness, for it is only symbolic of My Death, Burial, and Resurrection.”
“He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young,” Isaiah 40:11.
For I heard The LORD say, “Two things to do in the darkness….”:
1 Take Holy Communion
“For I have received of The LORD that which also I delivered unto you, That The LORD Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew The LORD’s death till he come.
Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of The LORD, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of The LORD.
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning The LORD’s body.
For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
But when we are judged, we are chastened of The LORD, that we should not be condemned with the world.
Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another,” 1 Corinthians 11:23-33.
2 Remember the Sabbath and Keep it Holy
Study the Feast of Trumpets
“And The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of The LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of The LORD in all your dwellings…..
….. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein…..
….. Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto The LORD,” Leviticus 23:1-3, 7, 24-25.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father,” Philippians 2:5-11.
“A Psalm of David.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of The LORD for ever,” Psalm 23:1-6.
The Blessing of The LORD Be upon You,
