|Down the Vía
Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day, the soldiers tried to
clear the narrow street. But the crowd pressed in to
see, the Man condemned to die on Calvary. He was
Bleeding from a Beating, there were Stripes upon His
back and He wore a Crown of Thorns upon His head. And He
bore with every step, the scorn of those who cried out
for His death. Down the Vía Dolorosa called the Way of
Suffering, like a Lamb came the Messiah, Christ the
King. But He chose to walk that road, out of His love
for You and Me. Down the Via Dolorosa, all the Way to
Calvary …… (Lyrics by Sandi Patti).
denies Me (refuses to agree with-obey Me)
before men and women, I will also deny (refuse to
know-reject) them before My Father who is in Heaven.
Do not think that I came to bring Peace on earth. I did
not come to bring Peace (as humans would know it)
but a Sword, ‘Obedience/Loving-Submission to a
Doctrine/Teaching that asks for your Entire Life’.
For I have come to separate (sheep from goat, Godly from
UnGodly) set a man against his father, a daughter
against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her
mother-in-law and a man and woman’s enemies will be (all
Unrepentant-Sinners) even those in their own household
(who don’t want to follow Me, do what I say).
Those who love (their fellow-humans) their father or
mother, husbands and wives more than Me are not
worthy of Me. And those who love their sons, daughters
or relatives more than Me are not worthy of Me.
And those who do not take up their Cross, (forsake their
Known-Sin) and follow after Me are not worthy of
being with Me or Mine.
Those who find their life (choose to live their life
their way for themselves) will lose it and be
sentenced to Eternal Hell Fire, and those who lose their
life (choose to do things My Way) for My sake will find
it for Eternity in Heaven.
Those who receive you (all My true and
faithful servants, disciples) receive Me,
and those who receive Me receive Father
who sent Me”…
