‘The Cross was not some Hiccup’ – or ‘ We would like to see Jesus.’

THE CROSS WAS NOT SOME HICCUP:

His passion and his dying

were not some hiccup

on the way to glory:

His hour of

Glory

is

upon the Cross.

One wheat-grain dies

and from that falling down,

-that earthing of divine,-

the fields are white with harvest

of new birth.

When He is lifted up,

the Prince of Glory on a wooden cross

                                          draws all to him                  (John 12:32)

                                  who want to see the Man,          (John 12:21)

the Son, the Sent;

Rivers of people come

and Rivers

                                                     flow.             (cf. Revelations 22:1,2)

They will look upon the One whom they have pierced(John 19:7)

 (Reflection on John 12:21,23,32  and Revelations 22,vv 1,2)
