The pain of our Heavenly Father

Posted by appolus on September 28, 2018

God the Father was so deeply wounded by Calvary. He was not asking His son to suffer and He stand dispassionately by. How did God the Father suffer?? At the height of Calvary He watched His precious Son take all of our sins and crucify them for us and turned His head away. Yet He heard His Son cry out “My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me.” God the Father was wounded so deeply that our minds are simply too small to even come close to understanding.

Perhaps only a parent who has watched their child suffer or die in agony can even come close to imagining the pain? And we know at that very moment, ” The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” What does the veil represent? It represents the covering of Gods heart, His chest if you like.

When the sacrifice was complete, that which had been hidden from men in general, was revealed, the heart of God. God chose to show His presence to the world through His Son Jesus. So, through the wounds of Jesus, and the wounds of the Father, we are united into His presence and can walk in the power that flows from His presence.

The Lord revealed this to me many years ago. He took my mind back to when my son, who was two at the time, was burned over 60% of his body with third degree burns. In the first few days he almost died. Part of his life saving treatment was to take him, every day for days at the hospital, and force him into a salt bath. I can still hear his screams.

I was asked to help and aid the nurses in this. To hold down your son, whom you love with all your heart, almost killed me, I was only 20 but my hair stared to fall out. He could not possibly understand what I was doing was to save his life, all he knew was that his father, who was supposed to protect him, was torturing him. Years later the Lord asked me to think back about this. And our heavenly Father shared with me how much pain it caused Him to watch His Son be mocked and ridiculed, tortured and killed.

In this revelation, I was amazed that God the Father loved us so much that He allowed this to happen for our sake. If we mere mortals can feel emotional pain that is agonizing beyond words, what kind of pain can our heavenly Father feel who is the author and creator of all emotions. And yet, For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…………………it is above what our minds can comprehend, this love of the Father.

    We have learned John 3:16 from childhood Sunday school classes … i am afraid the true meaning was never appropriately shared or understood. As I read this I could feel the pain you must have suffered along with your precious young son but more your story brought me to the place where I could sense our Father’s pain and grief as He placed our sin and then His wrath upon THE Innocent …. how He turned from His only begotten Son to allow the weight oppress Him … and then I contemplate the love that caused Him to allow His redemption plan become a reality through Christ’s bloody sacrifice. How unworthy I am … yet He covers me in the righteousness of His Son. How grateful I am that I know Him and more that He knows me. Thank you for sharing this … Rebecca
