Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? (Matthew 26:53)
He could have called ten thousand angels, but He bled and died for you and me. If one angel has the power to destroy the world, just think what tens of thousands of angels could have done! They were at the ready. I am sure that they were lining the borders of heaven waiting for the Father to give the command, “Get My Son”. Heaven was silent. The Father held His command. Each angel stayed his hand and the Son obeyed His calling. The world at the time was clueless, ignorant and deluded. That is why Christ prayed, “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they are doing.” We do. We know the price that was paid for our redemption. We know that the angels of heaven were kept from utterly destroying the universe in order to rescue the Son of God from the clutches of death. He knows that we know. Therefore, let us never forget we belong to Him. He paid for us.
