Transition, Believe it or NOT, part 4

14 07 2017

TransitionWe are in a series called Transition believe it or not! Today we will be looking at the transition of Yeshua (Jesus) found in Matthew 26:36 – 46. This is one of my favorite stories in the bible because it shows the depth of Yeshua’s human-ness. Not only is he the son of God he also functions mightily as the son of man who wrestles with his transition in the garden of Gethsemane.

Let’s set the stage, Yeshua is walking with his disciples in Jerusalem, they come to the garden of Gethsemane, an olive grove. This is nothing out of the ordinary, Yeshua does this all the time, taking Peter and the sons of Zebedee with him as he prays. Our Messiah the son of man was sorrowful and his heart was heavy with the weight of what the following hours would bring.


Our messiah had to choose to give up his life, after all he was the son of God and no one

could take his life. There was pain and suffering, there would be separation, and all the hate his loving man would endure. This transition was as real as the clothes he wore so it shouldn’t surprise us that he struggled. As with Mary, Joseph and Peter, now Yeshua himself came into agreement as he said these words “O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”


Moments later, his walk to the cross began. Join me next time as we finish this series Transition believe it or not!

Welcome to Transition?

16 06 2017

TransitionToday we begin talking about transition with our post, Welcome to Transition! We will endeavor in this series to simplify transition as we look at the life of Christ who made one of the largest transitions first from God to Man, becoming the atonement for our sin as our Messiah (1Jn 2:2) and then back again from Man to God as our risen lord (Lu 24:34).


Let’s define what transition is: passage from one state to another, or to change.


Transition as with the birth of a child is both wonderful and painful at the same time. Any family, will tell you that. Whether we begin with Mary or Joseph, the parent of Yeshua, both were given time to transition, both were given time to ponder, to embrace or reject the truth and meaning of the transition. With time, a key element, they both came to embrace it allowing God to prepare them for the coming season of Messiah’s birth!


Through the life of our Messiah we see everyone must come to that place of embracing transition and understanding the struggle with feelings is an important part of building kingdom authority to walk successfully in the new season which transition ushers in!


Join me next time as we look at Mary in the post, transition believe it or not part 1!
