VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

JOHN 12:32

JOHN 12:
32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” 33 This He said, signifying by what death He would die.

 

SO JESUS/YESHUA HAS JUST BEEN SHARING WITH HIS DISCIPLES THE FACT OF HIS DEATH, RESURRECTION, AND ASCENSION/DEPARTURE.

HE PROPHECIES THE TYPE OF DEATH HE WILL EXPERIENCE, AND HOW THAT IT WILL ULTIMATELY DRAW AN UNBELIEVING WORLD TO HIM.

HIS DISCIPLES ARE VERY CONFUSED, PONDERING THEIR UNDERSTANDING FROM PROPHECIES OF OLD, THAT MESSIAH WOULD BE COMING PERMANENTLY TO RULE, SO THEY THOUGHT HE MUST BE SPEAKING OF SOMEONE ELSE.

AND THIS IS, OF COURSE, STILL TRUE FOR JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY WHO ARE WAITING FOR A MESSIANIC POLITICAL SAVIOUR WHO WILL COME AND RESCUE THEM FROM THE ONGOING PERSECUTION, WAR, & ECONOMIC STRIFE. PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED. 

BUT FOR THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND AND BELIEVE, WE MUST CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS, AND BE EVER SO GRATEFUL THAT HE HAS ALREADY BEEN, & IS SOON TO RETURN, AND YES, HE WILL BRING PEACE AND JUSTICE NOT ONLY TO JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL BUT TO ALL THE EARTH. LET US LOOK FORWARD WITH GREAT JOY TO OUR SAVIOUR’S RETURN, FOR HE HAS ALREADY BEEN LIFTED UP, AND HE IS DRAWING MANY TO HIM. AND THERE WILL BE MANY MORE, RIGHT UNTIL THE TIME OF HIS ARRIVAL.
