Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father.

John 13:1

The Father of Eternity was conscious of time! It was, when the set time had fully come, God sent his son (Gal.4:4) for the Lamb…was slain from the creation of the world’ (Rev.13:8). The earthly, 33-years stage of his journey to Calvary had begun. For the aptly named ‘Potentate of time’ (ruler), (PHSS 300), the final ‘hour had come’. How painful those last steps would prove: betrayed, denied, forsaken by his disciples; mocked, tortured and crucified by those he came to save. But nothing could deter him from walking them so that we could abandon time and inherit eternity!
