Portrait of Things to Come
Portrait of Things to Come by George R Hawtin “Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew His hour was come that He should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him; and that He was come from God and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself. After that He poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. Then cometh He to Simon Peter; and Peter said unto Him, Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shall know hereafter. Peter saith unto Him, Thou shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me. Simon Peter saith unto Him, Lord, not my feel only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith unto him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.” John 13:1-10. (George R Hawtin)
Portrait of Things to Come
The earthly life of our blessed Lord and Christ was a life of parables from beginning lo end. Parable after parable flowed from His anointed lips teaching mankind all manner of truth concerning both Himself and the long awaited kingdom of God. Jesus came to proclaim the kingdom and at the end of this age He will take His seat on His exalted throne to reign unto the age of the ages. So frequent and diverse were the parables He spake that in one instance the statement is clearly made, “Without a parable spake He not unto them.” Matt. 13:34. The disciples, becoming aware of this method of instruction, asked Him plainly, “Why speakest Thou unto them in parables?” Mail. 13:10. The answer He gave them clearly shows that there are certain elect people who are ordained to see and believe the truth now, while others are left in darkness now to await their time of enlightenment in a coming age. His reply to their question was this: “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.” Verse 11. (George R Hawtin)
