He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.       -  Luke 24 verse 13

In this exquisite story about the Lord Jesus meeting with some followers after His resurrection, the two men are described as foolish because they had not been able to put together the words of scripture and the recent events they were lamenting about.

Jesus personally explained the purpose of the scriptures and how they referred to Him, the Messiah. Jesus taught them the mysteries hidden in plain sight for all eternity to bring these two men out of foolishness and into the understanding unto salvation.

The Lord listens to our cries and hears our sorrows. 

He concerns himself with our troubles and when we pour out our hearts to Him, He remembers  our frailties . As the scriptures say, Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.  - Psalm 62 verse 8

My Lord, you shine the way

By your righteousness and your life

We who sat in darkness saw a great light

   Halelluyah: Thy light has come

    Halelluyah: Thy will be done

The LORD says to my Lord: "Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”

The LORD will stretch out Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of Your enemies." 

                                - Psalm 110 verse 1 - 2

The Lord Jesus, gave up His life unto death and He was killed by the Roman authorities in the same way they would kill a violent criminal.

In such ignominious circumstances, even a keen observer could be excused for considering the whole mission of Jesus to be a massive defeat.

His loyal disciples went back to fishing  as they accessed that the cause they had recently given their lives to had abruptly ended.

What was not understood, was that the dismal failure of the promised kingdom of God was disguising a spectacular victory in the spiritual realm. 

Jesus, instead of defeat, amassed a gigantic reversal when He made a public spectacle of the powers of darkness as He conquered them in their own domain. He rose from the dead in a blinding light show bringing forth the people who He had released from darkness as first fruits of His resurection.

He was crowned as the victorious conquering monarch of heaven and earth where He was seated at the right hand of God. From this lofty throne, Jesus's strong authority was set over His kingdom in the midst of His enemies. In other words, He would successfully rule His kingdom even though it started out in the earthly terrain alongside the kingdom  of darkness that was hostile to it.

Jesus conquered death and hades and shone forth in victory. He, by His wonderful grace, made us inherit His victory which made us more than conquerors as defined in the great chapter 8 of the book of Romans verse 37.  But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

They were utterly astonished, saying, “He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”  - Mark 7 verse 37

Jesus, while ministering to the people, orchestrated the gatherings and the healings that occurred in a way that exuded goodness and competence.

When the Lord God made the universe and all that was in it, He saw that it was good.  At the primordial construction of creation, God did all things well. When Jesus was working in human form among people, His nature of doing all things well continued with him.

Our Lord does all things well.

The Lord paid a high price for those who would voluntarily give their lives to Him.

For those of us who repent and turn to him with contrite hearts, He embraces us and meticulously works to extricate us from the entanglements of our sins. 

Each one that He has, He rejoices over with singing and shouts of joy.

The Lord your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will rejoice over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.   -  Zephania 3 verse 17

Praise God who treasures those of His who trust in Him.

The Lord our God has perfect knowledge and His judgements are fully informed and are fully just.

From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet—when you, God, rose up to judge to save all the afflicted of the land.

                                  - Psalm 76 verse 8 - 9

Our God is the ultimate judge over all things over all time.

Praise and honor to His name forever.
