Jesus Was Threatened ( by Fenny West)

Jesus Was Threatened

Jesus was threatened

With premature death.

King Herod got mad;

Sad about good news.

 

God’s Son was in danger

After the manger.

But God was in control

Scripture was being fulfilled.

 

‘Take Him to Egypt!’

Was the instruction;

‘Place prepared for Him;

Place ordained for Him.’

 

God has allowed

All for His purpose.

He saw everything.

He knew everything.

 

So in the same way

You will be threatened.

Listen to His Voice

Take His instructions.

 

Do what He tells you,

And you will be safe.

It may not make sense

But His way is right.

 

It will lead to peace.

It will lead to good.

He will protect you.

He’ll take care of you.

 

Your angels are there-

There to protect you.

He’s always in charge-

Not your enemies.

13   Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”

14   When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt,15 and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”

16   Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

18     ” A voice was heard in Ramah,

       Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,

       Rachel weeping for her children,

       Refusing to be comforted,

       Because they are no more.”

19   Now when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,20 saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the young Child’s life are dead.”21 Then he arose, took the young Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.

Matt.2:13-21
