And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
This saying is taken from Psalms 22, a quote from King David. For some it is taken as an abandonment of the Son by the Father. The question is… can one really be separated from the love of God? Jesus was placed on the cross by His enemies, most of His Disciples and friends had scattered. Could the cry be of one who instead… felt forsaken. Often, we choose to feel as though God has abandoned us, but rest assured… we have His promise from both the Old and New Testaments. …
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
