In John chapter 12, Jesus is talking to a crowd who had come to Jerusalem for Passover. During the time he is talking to them, he says (in verses 27 and 28), “Now my soul is deeply troubled. Should I pray, ‘Father save me from this hour’? But this is the very reason I came! Father, bring glory to your name.'”
These verses really struck me today because they relate to how we feel sometimes as followers of the teachings of Christ, and of Jesus himself. Jesus almost seems to be having a conversation with himself in these verses, and it is clear that he knows what his fate will be.
But in the end, he knows that he came to earth in his incarnation here to teach human beings that he can save us from the hell realms if we will repent of our transgressions against self and others and ask his forgiveness. He tells us many times in the New Testament that he is the way to heaven in the afterlife, and this means accepting the Salvation that he offers us and following his commandments as laid out in the Bible.
This verses can be a comfort to human beings who resist sacrificing our human attachments, to know that even Jesus had a moment of reticence, but he knew that this is why he came here, to give human beings this vital revelation, even if it meant it would cost him his life. He bravely carried on and faced his fate, so that he could rise again and show his disciples that he truly was the Son of God.
Through this act, they were given the empowerment to spread Christianity all over the world, making it the largest religion on the face of the earth. I interacted with Christ as the consciousness of the sun while using a legal substance over several years, and I understood Christ to be holy light, radiant and pure, which somehow is synonymous with love itself. I hope that everyone will accept this beautiful, radiant being into their hearts, commit to Salvation through him, and commit to a life of following his commandments, so that everyone will ascend into the heavenly realms upon passing and be at home with God and Christ.
