Yeshua gave MANY gifts in His life time but what GIFTS did Yeshua get from others?
From what I know, I know from what was recorded in the scriptures. Yeshua got gifts of LOVE after His birth. He got gifts at the beginning of His life when He was too young to even appreciate them or even know what they were. (Matthew 2:1–12); (John 19:2)
Later Yeshua got gifts of HATE right before His death. He got gifts of mockery at the end of His life of torture! He got a twisted crown of thorns that caused Him pain & bloodied His head. He also got a robe to further inflict pain on a beaten, skin ripped body. He also got a staff in His hand. (Mark 15:17)
Here we see two types of gifts given. The first was gifts from the Magi of love, hope & expectation.
The second were gifts of hate, torture, mockery & contempt.
In contrast, what gifts did Yeshua give to others?
Yeshua gave & continue to give GIFTS of:
Endless & Unconditional Love, Compassion, Mercy, Understanding, Hope, Healing, Deliverance, Freedom, Friendship, Strength, Service, Knowledge, Peace, Life, Truth, Intercession, Wisdom, Comfort, Justice, etc.
Are YOU receiving your FREE gifts from God? All it takes for YOU to RECEIVE them is an OPEN heart to BELIEVE.
Yeshua as our example, THESE are the GIFTS we NEED to GIVE CONTINUALLY & SELFLESSLY!
These gifts were lasting! Not gifts one could buy with money! These gifts weren’t seasonal! These gifts one got whether you were a Christian or not! These gifts one didn’t just get because one were part of a physical family or group of friends!
What qualified & qualifies one for these gifts? ANYONE who open their heart to BELIEVE & RECEIVE!
Heaven knows, packages & bows never heal a hurting human soul!
THESE gifts are extended to a WORLD in NEED! EVERY SEASON IS A TIME OF GIVING!!!
