“Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?”
Matthew 26: 65-68
Many people have questioned God, including me, asking Him why did You allow my child to die? Why did I have to give up my child for adoption?
He says to us, “My children, I Love you very much. You are very precious to Me. Do you care that My Son, Jesus, was tortured, spit upon, and cursed? If you do, why do you break My Heart by the way you treat people?”
Yes, it is almost impossible to bear the loss of a child. God understands because He lost His child. He can’t do anything else to prove His Love for us. He gave His Son to die a death that can never be adequately described. Yes, we have read many things pertaining to how they suffered when they hung on crosses, but nothing can tell how much agony Jesus suffered in His Heart when everyone deserted Him. I believe with all my heart that Jesus died of a broken Heart.
