Have you ever heard the story behind the scene above? It's one of the most significant spiritual experiences I've ever had.
In 2016, Marty and I had been thinking about the significance of what Jesus did by dying on the cross. I commented on my sketchy understanding of its implication - despite knowing all the theology, I don’t live in a society where we make blood sacrifices for atonement of sin every other day so it’s hard to grasp the cultural constructs. The next night I had a vision. Here’s an excerpt from my journal:
“On Tuesday night we were putting the kids to sleep as per usual. Marty was settling Josephine in her room and I was with Sebastian in his. As I sat with him and he started to settle I saw a vision. In the vision Jesus was kneeling on the floor, facing the walls in the other corner of Sebastian’s bedroom (opposite his bed). I saw that Jesus had taken all Sebastian’s afflictions upon Himself. Of all things, He was lining blocks up in a row in just the same way that Sebastian is compelled to do.
Then I turned and saw Sebastian standing at the end of his bed. He stood strong and free, in a kind of almost superman-like pose, with no afflictions at all. I looked back and realised that Jesus had taken all the autistic traits – everything - off Sebastian and onto Himself. There He knelt – with all that afflicts Sebastian placed on Himself – and Sebastian was free. Jesus had taken all Sebastian’s afflictions off Sebastian and upon Himself.”
The magnitude of this shook me. It was difficult to speak aloud. It took me a day to tell Marty and a week to speak about it to anyone else. It still shakes me to this day.
