Going Up In Christ

John 12:27-37

27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

In verse 22, Jesus prays, “Now my soul is troubled, this is proclaiming Him facing that which would come about in a very short time.

And what shall I say? Father save me from this hour, but for this cause came I unto this hour”.

Jesus knew that no matter what came His way He would be able to handle the situation.

Jesus knew who He was and He knew that there was no way He could ever lose any situation that faced Him in this life.

Do we ever face situations that we think we can not win?

Do we ever go through situations we do not think that we can persevere?

As long as Jesus is with us, we will not lose any battles we go through.

Jesus knew how to get the job done when He walked this earth and He has left for us a map to follow.

All we have to do is pick up our map, which is our Bible, and follow what has already been laid out for you and me.

John 12:28-30

28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

The people heard the voice of God, “then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again”.

It was glorified at the raising of Lazarus, and it will be glorified again with the Resurrection of Christ.

The people who stood by and heard it said that it thundered, the voice of God sounded with so much power that it was like thunder.

Other people said that an angel spoke to Him; this proclaims that they did understand the words even though they did not understand the meaning.

This voice they heard came not because of Jesus, but it was for the peoples’ sake.
