Jesus Last Days and His Foremost Concerns

“Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment” (John 12:1-3).

Jesus had come to the home of his dearest friends for comfort and refreshment. This would be his last week of life. Finishing the work that his Father had given him to do was now right before him. The salvation of the world rested on his shoulders. At the home of his friends, we can imagine that Jesus would have received each moment, each passing glance, each touch, and each snippet of conver-sation, in a magnified, intensified, and height-ened way. While others were not tuned to the intensity of Jesus’ ordeal, somehow Mary was.

  • Hello and Greetings,
    This is the first time I have ever seen someone out there actually use the phrase Jesus’ last days.
    I mean, does not everyone and his whatever believe that he is still among the living, albeit on another plane?
    Yes it is actually true, these were his last days literally and eternally so.
    One must remember that he was the sheep to save God’s only-begotten son in the manner of the sheep that saved Abraham’s only begotten son with only-begotten connected at depth to the uniqueness of the begetting, not the miraculous nature of the event.
    One may likewise recall that Jehovah’s fashioning all creation flora, fauna and animalia, which includes Adam and Eve, were indeed miraculous events, while none were unique in the begetting of them.
    They were the result of Jehovah’s use of very clever processes, which did not even come close to the uniqueness of the creation of His very first uniquely heavenly creature he fashioned all by Himself in contrast with all others that were made through or via that unique only-begotten son of God.
    Both Adam #1 and Adam #2 were miraculous in their production, but never in the sense of uniquely only-begotten entirely by Jehovah Himself. Am I getting through here?
    That unique heavenly son was not Jesus. This Only-Begotten Son of God was Jehovah’s chief messenger (angel) who is wickedly alleged to have come down to die for mankind only to go back up again -echoes of the Trinity all monotheists are still burdened down with.

    Alas:
    #1: No one came down . . . and
    #2: He was meant to die only for Israel, but saved
    just in the nick of time by that sheep Adam#2 Jesus.
    #3: Mankind has no sin identified by God to be such for them,
    since they had no law, while sinning profoundly.
    For example: Cain was not executed for the murder of Abel
    because no law and attendant penalties had been provided by God.
    Jehovah even made sure to protect Cain for that very reason.
    #4: Israel was the only and unique recipient of salvation, because
    only they had a law that condemned them to extinction
    through their persistent disobedience of a law that defined sin
    and the attendant individual and collective penalties for them.

    The reality that no one wishes to acknowledge from Scripture is:
    Jehovah did offer His only-begotten heavenly son for the world of Israel who were condemned to death -John 3:16 -please check out the original Greek word via Strong’s definition of that ‘world’ used there.
    Like Abraham’s only begotten son, was the Jehovah’s heavenly son actually saved by a sheep of a different kind: Jesus, who, like that sheep caught in the thicket is now in that same place of no-return, as
    are all sacrifices in the whole of human history except humans.

    True, Jesus was a human, which ought to qualify him for a return, if it had not been for the fact that he had not received his life from Adam down the procreative chain of fathers, while inheriting his humanness from a descendant of Adam Mary. Jesus was a special creation as was the red heifer bred only for a sacrificial purpose.
    That is why Jesus is the second Adam by virtue of having received his life directly from Jehovah as did the first Adam.
    It was because Jesus did not cherish the hope of a return in a resurrection, only the prerogative of all of Adam’s descendants, that Christians are finally able to understand Jesus’ agony in the garden where he sweated blood and tears.
    His sacrifice was unique in every way, both in the scope of what it accomplished for all humans to be blessed by that seed of Abraham he died for, and in the completeness and finality of his death.
    The Old Testament type of Abraham’s virtual sacrifice of his uniquely only-begotten son, only to be saved by a sheep that neither grew up in Abraham’s household nor will ever be resurrected, as the pre-enactment type of the fulfilment in Jesus, has to be given precedence over Trinitarian fiddles in the NT to support their fictional Trinity that needs Jesus to go back up there, wherever, to retain the Trinity’s viability.
    And we, monotheists that we are and a people sincerely wanting to know and believe accurately, have not only inherited all that nonsense downloaded to us by the apostate establishment, but also tailored our doctrines and understanding of Jesus’ role along Trinitarian lines, while not believing in that triune God of Roman fiction in the first place.

    I shall take my leave, wishing that some may subject themselves to Jehovah’s word and will to an ever greater degree.
