Mary and Joseph knew that their son, Jesus, was the Messiah appointed by God, but what did that mean in terms of the boy's purpose and role? Was he going to lead an army against Rome? The boy, Jesus felt equally puzzled until the fiery hand of the Holy Spirit drew back the curtain that separates the Earthly from the Heavenly realms and instruction began. The Hebrew scriptures became a living memory, an experience from his heavenly life as Yeshua. His typically Jewish life with family and friends suddenly expanded to include both heavenly and satanic beings. The Messiah was in training, every life event a preparation for the cross.
