However, The Risks Are Part Of The Package
“For Herod had laid hold of John and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife. Because John had said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” And although he wanted to put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet. But when Herod’s birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.” Matthew 14:3-8 NKJV.
Why Can’t John Shut His Mouth And Save Himself From The King’s Trouble?
He cannot because of the risk of His assignment and keep silence, that was part of the reasons he was sent.
That is not in Jesus Christ Characteristics either. But why can’t Jesus save him?
Jesus Christ Can’t Save Him From The Consequence That Came With His Assignment. They had a different mission.
“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46 NKJV.
Jesus Heavenly Father Did Not Save Him From Facing The Consequence Of His Assignment Too Because He Signed Up For It.
Think about this, Jesus may be without sin as many of us would say, but He signed up willingly to pay for sins.
For instance, The western missionaries were not part of many countries idolatry and decadence in their nations, but many of the Westerners are dying daily because of their love for others. While those countries daddy g.o’s and bishops are hiding around in the Western Countries to enjoy their false prosperity.
What an irony?
No wonder Jesus said, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25 NKJV.
Brethren, be determined to lose your life for Christ sake, only then you will find it.
