Luke 22:31-46 AMPC+
Simon, Simon (Peter), thia, thia, listen! Satan has asked excessively that all of you be given up to him out of the power and keeping of God, that he might sift all of you like grain, [Job_1:6-12; Amo_9:9]
But I have prayed especially for you [Peter], thia, that your own faith may not fail; and when you yourself have turned again, strengthen and establish your brethren.
And [Simon Peter] said to Him, Master, I am ready to go with You both to prison and to death.
But Yahushua said, I tell you, Peter, before a [single] cock shall crow this day, you will three times [utterly] deny that you know Me.
And He said to them, When I sent you out with no purse or [provision] bag or sandals, did you lack anything? They answered, Nothing!
Then He said to them, But now let him who has a purse take it, and also [his provision] bag; and let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy a sword.
For I tell you that this Scripture must yet be fulfilled in Me: And He was counted and classed among the wicked (the outlaws, the criminals); for what is written about Me has its fulfillment [has reached its end and is finally settled]. [Isa_53:12]
And they said, Look, Master! Here are two swords. And He said to them, It is enough.
And He came out and went, as was His habit, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples also followed Him.
And when He came to the place, He said to them, Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation.
And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw and knelt down and prayed,
Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but always Yours be done.
And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him in spirit.
And being in an agony of mind, He prayed all the more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground.
And when He got up from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from grief,
And He said to them, Why do you sleep? Get up and pray that you may not enter at all into temptation.
Indeed! I Denied You 3 Times, Until …?
You questioned my love or obedience to deliver Your love message from You on the shores of my life aloof from You. That happened on that 7th Day of Rest on September 15, 2007.
- Before then I denied You the first time in 1974.
- Then again in 1984.
- But then?
- In 2009 You brought me to Your Mountain Top to be alone with You forever!
- No more denials.
- But the trials? Inevitable.
- Only now You overcome those trials for me.
- Thank You.
The Greatest Moment In My Life …
It happened on a most especial Sabbath on Saturday, October 03, 2009 (1:21am). The sting of the shock ceased. The silence of the moment permeated the room. I heard,
“My Thia, My beloved, open the door of your chamber for I am knocking. I come to take you higher up to My Mountain to be alone with Me.”
Ending Part One …?
Such a great moment will take several pages to cover. So I am breaking this post in two parts. For on that day my whole existence turned upwards never again to go backwards.
- Indeed! On that awesome day You took residence in that deepest and most Set Apart chamber of my heart!
- Saturday, March 27, 2021 at 9:00 pm. Falling asleep in front of the screen. Bed time.
- You got me up around 5 am on Sunday, March 28, 2021.
- You know how restless it went for me all night, but!
- As You got me up?
- Ready to finish the format and post.
Well? You Finally Made A Way To Finish Formatting And Publishing Part 1 Of This Post …
It is now Sunday, March 28, 2021 at 7:52 am. I will take a break for breakfast before I publish in the rest of the sites. All things are in the up and up with my thinking. Thank You.
