The Father Loveth The Son
we need to know this, because the Holy Spirit inspired it to be written
in our Bibles. If God loved His Son, then why did God allow Jesus to
experience so much temptation, pain, sorrow, etc.? That is a question
that only God can answer, but it is one that we can know in part, since
we know that without his suffering we could never have eternal life. God
shows His love to His son in giving him some things.
And Hath Given All Things Into His Hand
gave "all things" into the hand of Jesus so that Jesus could execute
God's perfect will in earth. That is both a challenging and a blessed
He gave to Jesus wisdom: Matt. 6:2 . . . and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
He gave to Jesus those who would believe: John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
He gave to Jesus all authority: Matt. 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
He gave to Jesus the disposing of the lot: Prov. 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
When Jesus was about to die to carry out God's perfect will, then, he cried in Matt. 26:39 And
he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O
my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless
not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Jesus executes God's will perfectly on earth as it is in Heaven. That is done, because the Father loves the Son: John 5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
