The Samaritan woman has left her water pot and gone into the city and the disciples have returned with food. The racial prejudice of these Jews toward this woman is clearly evident and when Jesus tells them He has meat that they know not of, they are offended that someone else may have brought Him food. But, like the two rivers again, the disciples were thinking of the natural and Christ was speaking of the spiritual. He spoke of the joy that was set before Him as He came not only to do the will of the Father but to FINISH it in righteousness. Nothing in the created existence could sustain Him in this manifestation for His work was not of this world. He came to make manifest that which stood from before the foundation of the world as a completed work of Go. All that He had seen of the Father, He did. All that He had heard of the Father, He spoke. “The Son can do nothing of Himself” (john 5:20) so His work was the work of God. When HE was then asked “What shall we do that we might work the works of God?” He answered “This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent” (6:28). Therefore it is given to His people to believe because He has finished the work which He came to do. When He then spoke to the woman and said, Woman, believe Me...” He was speaking to His child and giving unto her the work of God. Notice what He said, “Woman believe Me. The hour is now come when you shall neither in this mountain NOR IN JERUSALEM, worship the Father”. I guess no one told Jesus that He was coming back, some day in the still future, to set up His kingdom here on earth back in Jerusalem and all nations were going to flow unto it? Boy won’t He be surprised!!!!! Guess then He will owe her an apology. By the way, that would make Him a false prophet and fallible, therefore He cannot be God. AWAY WITH ALL SUCH FILTH AND ABOMINATIONS!!!!!! The Spirit was upon Him. The Father had anointed Him to preach the good news unto the meek. He had sent Him to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and to open the prisons to them that were bound. (Is. 61:1). He had come to proclaim the acceptable year of Jehovah and the days of vengeance of our God and when His work was finished, Luke wrote, “These be the days of vengeance that all things which were written might be fulfilled” (21:22). He came forth with a two edged sword in His mouth which is the Word of God in righteousness and judgment.
He then tells the disciples to “lift up your eyes and look unto the fields for they are white unto harvest”. The time of the harvest had come and He was there to do the work. He came forth as the Son of Man, after He had purged away the sin of His people, with a golden crown upon His head (a fair mitre Zech. 3:5) and thrust in His sharp sickle to gather His wheat into His barns. At the same time another angel came forth and thrust in his sickle and harvested the clusters of the vine of the earth and cast them into the winepress of the wrath of God, which the Lord Himself trampled in His anger (Is. 63:2).
Jesus came forth to do and to finish all that He was given and to insinuate that it has not been completed or that there is some form of a continuation for his work is to call the sacrifice of the Lamb common and to trample His blood afresh. He is seated by the right hand of the Father because He has completed all and His Bride is there seated together with Him in the heavenlies.
Your servant in Christ,
