Amongst the weapons that the devil uses to weaken, afflict or dampen the spirit of man to fall or sin to be seperated from God are, physical and emotional pain. The devil tried this out clearly in the case of Job. Thank God for the Grace over Job's life and his decision, that he stood firm to the Glory of God.
Right from the Garden of Eden, the plan of God for man to be free, especially in decisions making and this is still the case today.
God's counsel for man is to choose His ways, but man is allowed to choose whom to serve vountarily. Job chose God, Joshua chose God.. I choose God.
This choice is not linked to how one feels, the prevailing conditions, the state of events or all such things like physical or emotional pain to name it. Such decision must come from the heart and natural without any compulsion.
The coming of Christ in human form is to teach man that God exists and that God is pleased with those who believe that He exists and that He is a Rewarder.Heb 11:6, this is special to those who seek Him deligently.
His coming was to encourage mankind that, even without seeing Him, God is present and His presence goes with us.. when we pass through fire, the fire will not burn us,..even through deep waters the water will not overwhelm us, not to talk of experiecing physical and emotional pain.
Jesus neded to include physical and emotional pain, to deliver us from such weaknesses or afflictions that brought about the sin in the first place, before the sin itself that caused the seperation.
He started by taking that part upon Himslf so as to nail all on the cross.It was necessary for Him to treat the matter from the roots.He wanted to know that we in human form can serve God and stand firm to the end, even through physical and emotional pain.
Mankind should now live the ways of God in confidence. deciding on the things of God, not moved by whatever strategies or afflictions of the devil, believing and trusting in the redemptive love of God, the victory over sin, pain and death, and saved for eternity, to the Glory of God.
Jesus has conquerred satan in all forms as the second Adam.To God be the Glory.
