"The Messiah learned obedience by the things which He suffered"? (Hebrews 5:8)

"Get understanding!" (Proverbs 4:5-7; 16:16)

The Messiah "learned obedience"? (Hebrews 5:8)

Yes, one could say that "The Messiah learned obedience", because as a child The Messiah subjected Himself unto His natural parents. (Luke 2:43-51)

However, why would The Messiah need to "learn obedience"?

Was He not obedient?

Would not disobedience be sin?

Yet The Messiah "was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin." (Hebrews 4:15)


And it is quite evident that The Messiah sought and desired above all else; 

"FATHER, not My will, But THY Will Be Done!" (Luke 22:42)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

YES! Most certainly more than this natural temporal life.......

Should not the brethren of The Messiah seek and desire the same!

And The Messiah testified, "Of My own self I can do nothing"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)

And "Whatsoever Our FATHER and GOD would have Me to do, that I do"! (John 5:36, 8:28)

Seems TRUTH IS, that rightfully translated and understood, Hebrews 5:8 would reveal that The Messiah learned, not to be obedient, but that He learned how His obedient brethren would suffer even as He did as they sought and desired to follow Him on "The Narrow Way"! Seeking and desiring above all else to do "The Will and Good Pleasure" of "Our FATHER and GOD"....... 
(Mathew 7:14, Philippians 2:13, Luke 22:42, John 20:17)  

And "The Word of TRUTH" does bears witness that "the brethren of The Messiah will suffer as He suffered"! And TRUTH IS! His obedient brethren most certainly will "learn obedience" as they "suffer unto the death" of their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life! (I Peter 4:1, Romans 8:17, II Corinthians 1:5-7, Philippians 1:29, II Thessalonians 1:5, II Timothy 2:12; 3:12, Revelations 12:11)

Thankfully The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT of "Our FATHER and GOD" was WHOLLY in The Messiah, yet His suffering in the garden caused Him to declare, "if this cup(of suffering) can be taken from Me"....... (Matthew 26:42)

Yet TRUTH IS! The Messiah "did not learn obedience", HE WAS OBEDIENT!

Even "unto the death"....... (Revelations 12:11)

And "in all things it was necessary for Him to be made liken unto His brethren, so that He might be a Merciful and Faithful High Priest in things pertaining to Our FATHER and GOD, making reconcilia-tion for the sins of the people. 
For in that He Himself suffered being tempted (yet without sin), He is able to help them that are tempted." (Hebrews 2:17-18)

So it was that The Messiah DID LEARN what it would be like for His brethren to be obedient unto "Our FATHER and GOD", as they sought and desired to follow Him on that "Narrow Way" which IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life". (Matthew 7:14, John 14:16)


So as prophesied, the brethren of The Messiah "will suffer"! (Romans 8:17, Philippians 1:29)

And Thankfully so, for "love suffers long"! (II Corinthians 13:4)

And so it is The Faithful brethren of The Messiah, who "suffer as He suffered", cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (I Peter 4:1, Romans 8:17, II Corinthians 1:5-7, Luke 18:7)

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:



HE DID!       and HE does.......


So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age!

(Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17;5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
