Jesus, witness the Truth. Two.

Hearing and accepting the Truth.

We may like to go to Church, to be religious, to keep the traditions and believe that going through the ritualism and occasional ‘Good Deeds is enough to be on the right side of God?

But the revelation of who Jesus was and His role of being born into human flesh were born by Pilate a few hours before the Jesus victory at the cross and His resurrection from the dead!

One has to hear the message of repentance, accept ones failure and turn to God! From this point not going back into the same sins again and again to make a mockery of the blood of Jesus who did once for the atonement of our sins?

John 18:37,   Mark 1:14,  Isaiah 9:6,   53:4-7,  Hebrews chapter 7 and 10,   1 John 1:9

‘Nailed for Us. Part-Two.

My Kingdom, is not of this Realm.

Pilate was an interesting man to be recorded in history, he was intelligent and he was privilaged to meet God face to face and question Him in human flesh.

Jesus told Him a truth, which was far beyond his comprehension and yet he also informed him that his power was not his own. We see that Pilate did try his very best to get the Lord set free.

Jesus said ‘that His Kindom was not of this realm’ and this remains so, but we who have placed our faith and trusted in the works of Jesus on the Cross and His resurrection from the dead have become part of His Kingdom.

Luke 17:20,  John 18:36-37,  Romans 14:17.

 

Easter. Part-Two.

Betrayal and Failure.

Jesus was betrayed by one of His own and at the end of the day, they all ran way and denied they were connected to Him. Judas did it for money and the ideal that he believed would cause the events to bring on the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel. Peter boasted he would follow to the end, but denied Him three times. Luke 22:47-48,  John 18:12-18,  25-27.

Jesus had warned them all before hand that they would fail Him.  Matthew 26:20-25,  Mark 14:27-31.

What are we doing today as believers? Bragging about who and what we are or are we just pushing on in silence?  Isaiah 53:7,  John 19:9.

We all fail it is part of our natural Sinful nature, but if we are born anew of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We will endure, persevere on for His Glory and not our own.  Philippians 1:28.
