Topic # 1   Escape Or Purpose?

What are we to do when trouble comes? Are we now entering into global judgment and even tribulation? Our first thought is escape, but Jesus had a different mindset. As He contemplated His imminent death, He faced that choice and won! Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father, glorify Your name. John 12:27-28a.

Yeshua knew His purpose was to glorify the Father. In purpose, death was not an option but required. Purpose is what gave Him direction and the same is true for us. Even as Esther came to the Kingdom “for such a time as this”, so we must know our purpose, our “reason to live”.

Topic # 2   The Answer of Yahweh

Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” John 12:28

When Yeshua stood firm on His purpose, an amazing thing happened. Yahweh spoke in an audible voice that was heard by those gathered! He declared that He had glorified His name in the past and He would again in the future. What we have missed in this verse is the prophetic purpose. Jesus lived and died and rose to bring us to the Father! If we relate only to Jesus, we will miss the purpose He came!

There has not been a day since His earthly ministry that the NAME of the Father needed to be known like today. His name is YAHWEH! It is not buddha, allah, or any other god. There is no god like our God! He is the God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the living, Creator God. I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.’ Is. 46:9-10

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Yahweh, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 (Also see Is. 45:23 and 1 Cor. 15:24-28)
