In the middle of the night I was shown a vision – not to be taken lightly at all – of Jesus Christ. He was shown with His arms and hands extended wide open from left to right. He was looking downward but His expression was grave; it was an expression of sadness and even sorrow.
We know that in the latter days the Lord returns as the Lion of Judah with a fierce and bright countenance. But, based on this vision, this resurrected and majestic Son still feels sorrow for the suffering of GOD’S faithful people in ways that we cannot yet humanly comprehend. The position of Jesus with open arms brought to remembrance His descriptive Words when He lamented over Jerusalem:
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee (because GOD’S people did not understand nor accept that Jesus Christ was prophesied as their Messiah) how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings (under his open comforting arms) and ye would not! (Mat. 23:37)
While contemplating the vision this morning, there came a profound realization and knowing that human sorrows are registered in heaven. I do not know what might have taken place overnight or recently but this I do know: nothing escapes the eyes and heart of our compassionate GOD for HIS faithful people. (Ps. 25:10; 86:15-17) And know this, that whatever sorrow/s GOD’S people are feeling right now, it is being displayed through a sorrowful Christ. It ought to bring us all down to our knees in complete humility.
This vision is yet again another marker of the prophetic latter days we are living in and of the merciful call on All of GOD’S people to find refuge in His arms of salvation before the clock strikes midnight.
But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you just as my mother did. (Ps. 86:15-17)
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Mat. 11:28-30)
Keep the Faith, it’s what keeps all who are His. Suzanne ❤ +
