Thy Will be Done

Thursday, was an intense time as the reality of the Cross drew close.
Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with His disciples, saying to them, “I have eagerly desired to share this meal with you. He taught His disciples about the elements, He took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, taking the cup, saying this cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you. His blood poured out, the meaning would be eternal. He then went to Gethsemane to pray, the place of pressing, where in agony His sweat became as great drops of blood. Judas had betrayed Him, His arrest was at hand.

Thy Will be Done

Oh My soul is troubled
And sorrowful unto death
I must go to pray
This fear is choking out My breath

Will you pray with Me
In Gethsemane for prayer
Can you watch one hour
Sit here while I go there

Oh My Father hear My prayer
And if it be Thy Will
I ask that this cup pass;
Crucifixion on Golgotha’s Hill

There isn’t a worse death
Ever known in time
The scourging and the Cross
Salvations price paid for mankind

His sweat became as drops of blood
And to the ground did flow
“Because redemption starts
Where the will of God is known”

As He prayed He agonized
Is there another way
When He was reminded
While on His knees He prayed

Nevertheless not My will
But Thine be done on earth
For this has been prophesied
From before the time of My birth

Just then an angel from heaven
Appeared and strengthened Him
For He would rise and conquer
And drink this cup, indeed The Will of Him

Saying for this reason I was born
And I have come to say
Resurrection power
Came to you this way

And when I rose up, yes I knew
I had already won
The war was fought in a garden
My mind set on things above

satans lies had deceived
In a garden long ago
God redeemed our minds with blood
Giving us back our soul

For I did bleed and agonize
So when you call on Me
You can read and remember
Fight your battle on bended knee

In that garden I redeemed
The ability to win
The war against your minds
To do the will of Him.

Luke 22:42-45 NKJV
saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

“And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

When He rose up from prayer,
and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow.”

John 18:37 NLT
“Pilate said, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.””
Song of Songs 2:1 YLT
As a lily among the thorns, PASSION

◄ 3958. paschó ►
Strong’s Concordance
paschó: to suffer, to be acted on
Original Word: πάσχω

Transliteration: paschó
Phonetic Spelling: (pas’-kho)

HELPS Word-studies
3958 pásxō (a primitive verb) – properly, to feel heavy emotion, especially suffering; affected, experiencing feeling (literally “sensible” = “sensed-experience”); “the feeling of the mind, emotion, passion” (J. Thayer).

3958/pásxō (“to experience feeling”) relates to any part of us that feels strong emotion, passion, or suffering – especially “the capacityto feel suffering” (J. Thayer). The Lord has privileged us to have great capacity for feeling(passion, emotion, affections). Indeed, this is inherent because all people are created in the divine image. Note for example how Jesus in His perfect (sinless) humanity keenly felt(3958/pásxō, see Lk 17:25, 22:15, 24:26,46, etc.).

[3958/pásxō (“experiencing strong feeling”) is the root of: 3804 /páthēma (“passions, sufferings”), 3805 /pathētós (“suffering”) and 3806 /páthos (“strong feeling, passion”).]

Asking His disciples to pray with Him. After the third time of agonizing in prayer, He emphatically declared “Not My Will But Thy Will Be Done.”
The gospel of Luke records He rose up from prayer. He rose up to be raised up, resurrection Sunday was coming.

Sozo is Greek word for salsalvation. Salvation is more. It is the healing and redemption of our mind, will and emotions, and our physical beings.

Strong’s #4982: sozo (pronounced sode’-zo)

from a primary sos (contraction for obsolete saos, “safe”); to save, i.e. deliver or protect (literally or figuratively):–heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole.

Redemption begins where the will of God is known. He redeemed our mind, our emotions, and the ability to follow God’s will in the Garden of Gethsemane. In Gethsemane His soul was sorrowful unto death, but, for the joy that lay ahead our Lord ensured the shame is the Cross.
The first place His blood was shed was in Gethsemane, the place of pressing.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you! The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. laurette
