How many countless times have we heard and even quoted this saying? To many to count I am sure, I don’t know who coined this phrase for Christians, but boy is it a doozie!
“Christians declare they are better than Yeshua?”
There are so many of these little things we say and confess out of our mouths that we honestly believe, and they just leave a very bad stench in the air around us.
It’s like walking behind someone who forgot to put their deodorant on before they left home, not very pleasant at all!
We begin to quote and believe stuff like this and it just shows how gullible we really are even after all the days and countless hours we spend in Church.
There is no person alive who can claim to be so blessed they have no stress! Fear is a form of stress, and every human feels fear at one point or another in their lives, so this is a ridiculous statement at best!
If a person is too blessed to be stressed, then they are better than all the people in the Bible and on the earth, including Yeshua ( Jesus)!
It’s only going to take one of many accounts in the Bible to prove it. We find the story in several accounts, but in Luke’s account we get the picture of what is happening from a Physicians point of view & knowledge.
We see Yeshua (Jesus) in turmoil, and in agony anticipating what He must soon endure. He is so stressed in fact that He literally sweats like drops of blood! It takes Luke a Doctor to recognize this phenomena as recorded in this gospel.
There is a medical phenomena called “Hematohidrosis” in which sweat can contain blood.
42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, let not my will but yours be done.” 43 There appeared to him an angel from heaven giving him strength, 44 and in great anguish he prayed more intensely, so that his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.” CJB
Just from this one account we can clearly see that even Yeshua as earthly flesh endured suffering, sorrow, pain and stress. Yet, He was endued with power from on high, filled with the Spirit of the living God, He was and Is the only begotten Son of God made flesh and a sacrifice for all mankind!
If He can be stressed in such a way, then it only stands to reason that we can be also as human flesh. Hebrews 5:7-9
“During Jesus earthly life he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. Although He was a Son He learned obedience from what He suffered, and having been made perfect He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him…” BSB
To say that we are too blessed to be stressed is literally like stating that we are greater than all the saints, all mankind and even Yeshua the Messiah all rolled into one!
Yeshua told us that in this world we would have trouble, but not to fear for He has overcome the world. John 16:33
“No one has ever been too Blessed not to be Stressed!
