The Restitution of Jesus, Joseph and Others
by Eddie Maddox
7/01/2021 / Bible Studies
"this cup" not removed, Luke 22:41-44:
"41 And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw and knelt down and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me;
yet not My will, but [always] Yours be done.
"43 And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him in spirit.
44 And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and
intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon
the ground.", Luke 22:41-44 (AMP)
- The Father of Jesus did not "remove this cup from" Jesus,
because his Father was not "willing".
- The Father of Jesus also did not "remove this cup from" Job,
Joseph or those cheated by Zacchaeus.
If the Father of Jesus had removed those four "cups":
- Job would not have been restored "twice as much".
- Those cheated by Zacchaeus would not have been restored "four times as much".
- Joseph would not have been restored many times his own life
by being both spared and keeping "many people" alive.
- Jesus would not have been restored many times his own life
by being both resurrected and becoming the "first fruits".
Instead, the Father of Jesus was "... not desiring that any should perish, ...",
2 Peter 3:9 (AMP), and therefore was "willing" to allow innocent, sinless Jesus
to be murdered by Satan so that Jesus would then have to be restored many times
his own life by being both resurrected and becoming the "first fruits".
"20 But now [as things really are] Christ has in fact been raised from the dead,
[and He became] the first fruits [that is, the first to be resurrected with an
incorruptible, immortal body, foreshadowing the resurrection]
of those who have fallen asleep [in death].", 1 Corinthians 15:20 (AMP)
