A Pause before Gethsemane (Re-Post)

[This is a re-post from my sister blog, Arrested For Sedition. I invite ALL to join this pilgrimage with me as we; not only retrace the final steps which Yahshua took through Gethsemane to His arrest, trial, and Crucifixion, but gather deep insights along the way; which, if implemented in our personal lives; will prepare us for our coming hour and the power of darkness; as we become changed from glory to glory by beholding the sufferings of our loving Perfect Example.]  "Blessed [is] the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors......I die daily." (Prov.8:34; 1Cor. 15:31)

Shalom to you all in the name of Yahshua who is now walking in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks in the sanctuary in the Shamayim above.

From the first post until now we have been studying sacred history. More specifically we have been studying the principles of Yahweh's government and Satan's seditious plot to overthrow it. We have endeavored to illustrate the big picture of the spiritual warfare which started in the shamayim (Heaven) and has continued unabated for the last six thousand years.

We now turn our attention to the central event of the warfare and the mighty issues that were at stake when Yahshua entered upon the final moments of His life here on earth.We also will be discussing the final moments of this earth's history which (in many ways is a secondary fulfillment of Yahshua's final hours) which are now upon us. We will be studying; very closely the Life of Messiah with the purpose of drawing from Him vital lessons which we are to implement in our lives as we seek to bring our thoughts, actions, and habits in harmony with the One who is " ....altogether lovely".

You can also anticipate some new truths from the Lamp which burneth (the Holy Scriptures) and some very interesting prophecies yet to be fulfilled. These together with the truths which may be familiar to some, we hope to ponder, contemplate, and pray over and reconsider in the context of a more complete understanding; as the sacred scroll of earth's history reaches it's conclusion. We also wish for your input, by way of questions, comments, and prayerful observations as we enter into new and uncharted waters.

We leave you for now with these words....

Tis midnight, and on Olive's brow
The star is dimmed that lately shone;
'Tis midnight, in the garden now
The suffering Savior prays alone.

'Tis midnight, and from all removed
Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears
E'en the disciple whom He loved
Heeds not his Master's grief and tears.

'Tis midnight, and for others' guilt
The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood;
Yet He Who hath in anguish knelt
Is not forsaken by His God.

'Tis midnight, and from ether plains
Is borne the song that angels know;
Unheard by mortals are the strains
That sweetly soothe the Savior's woe.


  1. Hi Yuri -

    This indeed is inscribed with the richess of our Lord's flavor. Thank you.

    I loved "as we enter into new and uncharted waters" and "is not forsaken by His God."

  2. I loved the poem, 'Tis Midnight. Are you the author?
