QUICKENED QUESTION:  Today Wayne asked me, “Why do they call good Friday, Good?” 


QUICKENED ANSWER:  Because the Father gave His very best for us Who is Jesus, His Son.  Jesus is the Father’s Good and Perfect Gift.  And because Jesus gave His very best to the Father’s will, Who is our Good Father.  Both the Father and Jesus gave their very best for us, so that we may be forgiven, adopted into their family and have eternal life with them.


James 1:17-18 NKJV

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.


John 10:11, 14-16 NKJV
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.... 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.



Within a few days of each other, I had a gal send me an email that said, “You're the absolute best of the best!”  That really touched my heart, I hadn’t heard that phrase before.  And then a few days later I was at a conference and the pastor prayed over me and asked the Lord if He would give me His very best.  I had never heard anyone pray that before and it was really quickened to me as He brought back the remembrance of that email.  When I came home, Wayne asked me why they called Good Friday, Good.  And I responded it was because Jesus gave His very best gift, His life.  I knew this was the Lord’s quickened Word, as He filled my mouth, my friend’s mouth and the pastor’s mouth with His answer.



Dear ones, when you give Me your all, I give you Mine.  When you lay down your life for Me, I lay all aside for you.  When you give Me your best, I give you My best. 


And when you have failed to give your best, and you return to Me wholeheartedly in repentance and change, I still give you My best.  I give you My best robe and ring, My best gifts, the best of My oil, new wine and grain.   I give you the best of the land.  I give you My best, because I AM your Good Father and I give good gifts to My children.  I give you My very best because You are My precious child.


Luke 15:22-24 NKJV

"But the father said to his servants, 'Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.  23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;  24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' And they began to be merry. 


1 Cor 12:31 AMP

But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts and graces (the higher gifts and the choicest graces). And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one that is better by far and the highest of them all — love].


Num 18:12-13  NKJV

"All the best of the oil, all the best of the new wine and the grain, their firstfruits which they offer to the LORD, I have given them to you.


Gen 45:17-20  NKJV

And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Say to your brothers, 'Do this: Load your animals and depart; go to the land of Canaan. 18 Bring your father and your households and come to me; I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. 19 Now you are commanded — do this: Take carts out of the land of Egypt for your little ones and your wives; bring your father and come. 20 Also do not be concerned about your goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours.'"


James 1:17-18 NKJV

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
