Jesus' Agony Before and at the Cross

Heb.5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; (KJV) Jesus was in great agony as He prepared to face death.

Luke 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. (KJV) IF we are not to fear what man can do to us, WHY was Jesus in such great agony as He prayed. Only Luke tells us that Jesus’ sweat were as great drops of blood. Was Jesus afraid? Since He was 100% God, He knew exactly what lay ahead for Him. But since He was 100% Man, He knew He would suffer tremendously. Was He afraid of the physical pain that He knew was soon to come? My answer to this is “No.” Was He afraid of the sins of the world being placed upon Him as He hung on the cross? No, because He knew from the beginning of time that was the Plan to save mankind, and He had already consented to leave the comfort of Heaven and come to save us. Personally, I think He knew that His Father would turn His back on Him at that time, and I truly believe that, as a Man, He would be separated from His Father because of sin . . . NOT His sin, for He had none (Heb.4:15) . . . but OUR sin!

The physical agony Jesus would suffer would be horrible, but even worse would be the time of spiritual separation from God. Jesus suffered this double death so that we would never have to experience eternal separation (second death, Hell) from God. Jesus knew that he would be temporarily separated from God the moment He took upon Himself the sins of the world. This separation (alienation from His Father) was what Jesus dreaded as He prayed in Gethsemane. The physical agony would be horrible, but the spiritual alienation from God would be ultimate torture for Jesus.

Jesus was in extreme agony, but He did not give up or give in. He went ahead with the mission for which He had come.

Psalm 56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. (KJV) Jesus was NOT afraid of what man would do to Him. What He was dreading was when His Father turned His back on Him.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (KJV) Jesus was NOT afraid of what would happen. He just dreaded the separation between His Father and Him.

Jesus prayed with all His Heart, and soul and mind and strength! He knew His Father heard Him! He knew His Father would answer Him! This is how we should pray when we desire God’s guidance. Trust God completely as Jesus did. And be prepared to accept God’s will, whatever it may be. You will be able to face anything if you know that Jesus is with you.

Luke 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. (KJV) Even thought Jesus cried out to God, asking to be delivered, He was prepared to suffer extreme pain (torture), humiliation, separation from His Father, and death in order to do God’s will. At times we will undergo trials, not because we want to suffer, but because we want to obey God. We should remember Jesus’ obedience, and the way He prayed.

Have you ever felt that God didn’t hear your prayers? Make sure there isn’t any unconfessed sin blocking the channel to Him. And remember to pray with all your heart when you seek Him. Pray with reverent submission, yielding totally to Him. Be willing (like Jesus) to do whatever it is that God wants. God responds to His obedient children.
