The heart of a person is revealed in how we treat others. For many these days they are so wrapped up in themselves they have no idea how to treat others. Jesus always had the heart to love people and many people saw this in Jesus. The truth is that even when many saw Jesus do what He did, they still couldn’t mustard up the faith to go against the political correctness of their time. For whatever reason it may be many people just choose to side with the in crowd instead of follow their hearts. I wonder if choosing to trust what the leaders of Jesus time said was more important than trusting the words Jesus and His Father!
6 Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested.
7 The man named Barabbas had been imprisoned with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the insurrection.
8 The crowd went up and began asking him to do as he had been accustomed to do for them.
9 Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?”
10 For he was aware that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to ask him to release Barabbas for them instead.
12 Answering again, Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
13 They shouted back, “Crucify Him!”
14 But Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they shouted all the more, “Crucify Him!”
15 Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
That day there were probably so many people present that saw many things Jesus did over the years. There were probably many who just heard through the grapevine about what things Jesus did over the years. Either way there were people present who had the choice to either choose to release Jesus or to crucify Jesus. We who know the word of God know that it all had to happen the way it did or we would not have a true savior for this broken world. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. See we as people are one part of this world. The whole world was affected by the sin of mankind not just mankind. Yahweh seeks to restore the whole world but it is through mankind that this all fell apart and it will be through mankind that it will be restored!
19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
11 And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—
13 for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.
15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.
16 The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification.
17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
18 So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men.
19 For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.
20 The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
21 so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So many people will choose to believe in things that have no true weight in their lives but deny the things that will forever change them inside. Why? We side with the in crowd most times because of the fear we acquire and then we choose to be politically correct instead of biblically correct. Think of how many people were witnesses to the life of Christ? Think of how many people saw Jesus do miracles? How many heard from a friend of what took place? How many people do we know of these days that have heard of the life of Christ 2,000 years later?
18 Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
19 And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
20 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
21 Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them.
22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
Ministry in Galilee
23 Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.
24 The news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them.
25 Large crowds followed Him from Galilee and the Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.
See we know how many people followed Jesus closely and truly went against the grain of their time. We also know that there were many fans of Jesus but these people didn’t have the guts to stand for Jesus when it mattered most. Does salvation cost anything? Many say it is free but in reality it cost the life of the most loving person who ever walked this earth. Sure it is a gift and free to us because of what Christ did but it still cost the life of Jesus. He paid the price for all mankind who has ever breathed the air in this life. The people who walked with Christ knew what He had done and choose to walk to their deaths to spread this good news (gospel)!
I am sure that the evil had devised a plan that would track them all down so as to shut these people up. I am sure there were many who knew they should speak up or stand against this plan but they choose to be part of the in crowd instead. There were many who probably sat by saying nothing because of the fear of losing all that they had worked for in this petty life. It was easier to just be quiet than to rise up for the truth. Even to this day we see so many who claim to know Jesus but it is easier to just sit idle than to stand up for what Jesus taught. Even Nancy Pelosi claims to be Catholic so wouldn’t that mean she knows about Jesus? The actions of people who sit quiet are just as loud as the ones who are doing the evil themselves. To not have a say on what evil does is just like speaking to begin with. To act as if all this chaos in this world has nothing to do with you is just flat out ignorance. We all have the choice to tell people where we stand on the truth. My title for what I do in this world for work should not be what comes out of my mouth first. First and foremost I should be a follower of Christ who is a carpenter, a husband, a father, a brother, etc. and in this I should never back down from evil!
2 Corinthians 4:6
6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light
11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
I don’t know about you but I surely would not want to be the one who chooses to join the crowd in these end days. The world is about to give birth to the final anti-Christ who will crucify all truth as we know it. In case you haven’t noticed they have already begun their assault on those who speak truth. What do you think is next? They are already deceiving the elect into falling for the lies of this world so who will you trust? Will you be a follower or fan of Christ? Many people can’t see or hear because they have neither eyes nor ears to understand. Do you see and hear?
24 “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
What is taking place right now has already been prepared by evil for many years. Many choose not to lose their way of life they have so they choose their possessions over truth and fall for the lies. They continue to be deceived by the lying wonders on T.V. and so much more. Soon the whole world will be subjected to the next virus. The world will be told that we are being invaded by life on another planet and then the T.V. will show them this as people believe it just as they did 9/11. The evil and satan know that if people agree in their hearts then they can have excess through our agreement so first we have to be deceived. What do I know though I am just some broken man who has no status. I am not the one who controls your T.V. or the things you see on the internet so I must be the crazy one right! Oh you of little faith I can only hope that if you have already fallen for the vaccine lie that you would not choose to go another day without seeking who it is you truly follow. The false Christs (Chosen ones) are all around you people and they seek to destroy you and many have become numb to these lies. I can only hope for those who claim to know Jesus that you are a true follower, so that you can tell those who don’t know Him at all. Time is running out and no matter what this evil world may do or say, I will choose to stand up for my savior. I will speak up even when it means that I piss off the world around me because I flat out don’t give a shit about this world! I love people and I love my God who gave me redemption through His Son. I will pray for the strength to be the follower of Christ my Father needs me to be no matter what may come my way! May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your steps in the days ahead!
