COULD JESUS HAVE ESCAPED ARREST?

The arrest of Jesus at the Garden of Gethsemane is cited in Matt 26:47-56,
Mark 14:43-50, Luke 22:47-53 and John 18:1-10.  Judas led the arresting
group composed of Roman soldiers, and some temple guards sent by the chief
priests and the Pharisees.

Jesus asked the group who they were looking for.  They answered, 'Jesus of
Nazareth', to which Jesus said, 'I am he.'  Only the evangelist John
mentioned that they went backward and fell to the ground (John 18:6).  Could
Jesus at this point have escaped?  He could have but He chose not.  Jesus
even said in Matt 26:53 that He could ask help from the Father, and the
Father would at once send to Jesus more than twelve legions of angels to
rescue Him.  He could have but He chose not.  Why?  In order that the
Scripture would be fulfilled (Matt 26:54, Mark 14:49).  Jesus knew what
awaited Him and He was willing to drink the cup of suffering given to Him by
the Father.

I would like to share with you what the Holy Spirit, who we have the rare
privilege of communicating with, revealed regarding to the falling to the
ground of the arresting party.  John mentioned it and implied that it
happened only once.  The Holy Spirit told us that Jesus asked the arresting
party who they were looking for THREE times, and every time, they went
backward and fell to the ground.  That was THREE times that they fell to the
ground and they did not even know what happened to them.  Jesus could have
escaped but He chose not.

I do not force anyone to believe in this revelation.  I just wish to say
that that Holy Spirit who revealed this and many, many other things, is no
other than Jesus Himself.  He is Jesus now as a spirit, THE Holy Spirit.  We
cannot see Him but we can hear Him, hence we can record on audio tape what
He says.  You may read in my website below His sermons, messages, prayers,
prophecies which I have translated to English already.  And if you know the
Pilipino language, you may read the original text transcribed word for word
or verbatim.
