JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, thank you for your loving heart toward Me, but with all due respect, I do not need your defense. When Peter rushed to My defense during My capture, I commanded him to put down his sword. And I ask you to do the same.
When a flower grows, it recognizes the sun as the source of its life and it naturally turns its face toward the light. That’s how everyone must come to Me: from a place of free will, a place of deep remembering that your Father is the source of life and I am His Son.
When people testify against Me, don’t bully back. Instead, shine My light on them. Send them your loving prayers that they may someday look up and see My love and willingly desire to grow toward it. When you refuse to bully back, some will marvel and wonder and question their own assumptions. That’s what I want.
But what of you? I know it hurts your heart to feel Me ignored or attacked. That’s why it’s important to seek My loving embrace every day. In place of meeting hate with hate, meet love with love by sending Me a wave of the tenderness you feel toward Me. Feel the Holy Spirit bring you My loving reply and just rest in My arms. Allow your spirit to be cleansed and renewed and allow your heart to fill so it’s bursting with love. There…that’s My way.
Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, “Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You!” But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.
