How picturesque that Jesus the true vine, the anointed one kneeled, “barak” an act of worship, in the Garden of Gethsemane “oil press” suffering dis-ease manifesting as Hematidrosis.
Hematidrosis is a condition that can occur when a person suffers extreme levels of stress. Capillary blood vessels that feed sweat glands rupture, causing them to exude blood. Looking at the physical aspects of the crucifixion and the shedding of Christ blood the anointing of Jesus becomes riveting.
Jesus last name is not Christ. He is the anointed one, the Christos. What a powerful anointing to shoulder such an undertaking for the very ones that persecute you and defile your name.
Beginning to grasp a slight understanding of the fear and anxiety Christ suffered on our behalf is mind boggling. My heart fills with so much appreciation. Jesus knew when He came to earth what was in store. Yet, he endured.
John 18:6 KJV reads: As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
The Amplified version reads: When Jesus said to them, I am He, they went backwards drew back, lurched backward and fell to the ground.
These translations originate from the word “pipto” meaning to fall; but the root word “petomai” means to fly. They did not just fall or step back and fall. They were thrown from their feet. They flew back. When Jesus spoke the words "I AM" it was a declaration of who HE is.
NO one could stand before Him. Jesus could have walked away, instead He endured. For each and every one of us He endured. And then after excruciating pain here on earth. He went to hell…But, then HE rose. He defeated death, hell and the grave.
We joint heirs with Christ became victorious in HIS rise. As you watch this video the physical suffering of Christ is obvious. Consider the mental anguish of a man about to endure unimaginable suffering.
With this beating see the love of Jesus. See the Love of God. Let the words “I have come to set the captives free” take on new meaning.
Jesus said I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser John 15:1 Amplified Version
My Lord Jesus the Anointed one, pressed to sweat blood. That blood sweat is the anointing oil that breaks the bondage of life.
Thanks for reading. Enjoy the video. May The Lord richly bless you and yours
