The Via Dolorosa

(the way of suffering)

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).
“Whoever 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”…
