    Yahweh's angel came and sat under the oak which was in Ophrah, that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite. His son Gideon was beating out wheat in the wine press, to hide it from the Midianites. Yahweh's angel appeared to him, and said to him, "Yahweh is with you, you mighty man of valor!" Judges 6:11-12 ...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEB.The book of Job is the oldest book in the Bible, except for...

Cuts Like A Knife

  • Now he who betrayed him had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I will kiss, that is he. Seize him, and lead him away safely." When he had come, immediately he came to him, and said, "Rabbi! Rabbi!" and kissed him. They laid their hands on him, and seized him. Mark 14:44'46 WEB.

    The evening light had faded, and it was now dark. Jesus and the unknowing disciples had finished their last supper on Earth. There had been a shadow of death and betrayal covering this otherwise lovely family meal. They sang a hymn together, then went out to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, as Jesus often did.

    Judas Iscariot, an apostle of Jesus who ate with them at supper and dipped his bread in the bowl together with Jesus, now showed up with an armed group of men to arrest Him. Their close friend had suddenly become their enemy. Judas walked over and kissed Jesus on the cheek to let the guards know who they were to arrest. This really hurt.

    One of the twelve apostles Jesus had picked out of thousands had now betrayed Him. Yet, Jesus had a purpose, and Judas played an ugly part in bringing that about. It was not pretty, but like many things, it ended up accomplishing the will of God.

    Jesus took our sin away on the cross, and He suffered for it so that we would not have to, but other things that He went through while on Earth were an example for us. Betrayal is something that most of us will experience at some point, and it always hurts when those who were your friend become your enemy.

    If this happens to you, do what Jesus did: Stay focused on your purpose, and forgive the betrayer as quickly as possible. It does not mean that you have to trust them anymore, for trust is earned. Don't delay God's work and get sidetracked or filled with bitterness over the incident, even though it cuts you like a knife. God will take care of the betrayer in due course Himself. For oh yes, we reap what we sow.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that You have a plan and a purpose for me. I choose to follow You today. Please help me see past the wrongs in my life and focus on what You are doing instead. Give me the grace to get through this day. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Thanks for the timely message. Like Peter,  I need the reminder to forgive,  often 7 times 70 on a daily basis! It always cuts deepest when the betrayer is one's own flesh and blood.
