and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him. John7:32
TAKE vs GIVE
Worldly priests, popes & protestant prelates
cooperate with patricians and all paynimry to proudly TAKE dominion over World Empires and 7 Mountains: the kingdoms of this world.
They TAKE up the sword. They even plot together to TAKE Jesus by force and kill Him.
But Jesus Christ the Son of God; His Kingdom is not of this world.
He denied Himself. He did not “take dominion” over nations, worldly kingdoms, empires, or mountains. He was a humble servant. He washed feet. He GAVE. He GAVE and GAVE and GAVE. What He took was reviling, mocking, slaps, blows, spit, whips and nails. He took up His cross.
