“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
When Jesus asked this question He wasn’t merely quoting the Scriptures and He wasn’t merely expressing His “feelings”. This was the Lord and Savior hanging on a cross between Heaven and Earth...the pivotal event of time and space. Everything He said and did had great significance. With this question Jesus was making an incredibly profound statement concerning an event that had been foretold in the Scriptures. Jesus knew the answer to the question but He asked the question to emphasize that there was an answer. There was a reason for God to forsake Him.
With the face of God turned away from the crucifixion, the devil unloaded his hatred on Christ. This is why Jesus was so repulsed by the cross He was sweating blood beforehand. My book will show how this spiritual attack by the devil was clearly detailed in the Bible and how this attack will cause Satan to be cast from Heaven in the near future.
To this day, Satan is still in Heaven because he has never been shown to have violated the Law of God. Jesus is at the "right hand" of God, which is to say out of sight at a place which transcends even Heaven. Jesus has not exposed the devil and the divinity of Jesus has not been explained. For two thousand years Christians have been saying that Jesus is Lord but the devil and all the inhabitants of Heaven know there is only one God so the devil still believes he has no reason for concern. There truly is only one God who transcends time and space and yet Jesus is the Lord. The solution to this riddle is beyond our comprehension yet remarkably simple. The miracle is that God prevented Heaven and Earth from seeing how Jesus is the Lord but now as we approach the end times, God will allow the simple truth to be known.
