KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 11:17 ISV ‘A wedding song we played for you, the dance you all did scorn. A woeful dirge we chanted, too, but then you would not mourn.’
The above scripture depicts the way certain groups of people approach God and His word. The Lord speaking figuratively said, the people of His day are the type who would not dance to a song of jubilation nor mourn when a woeful dirge was played. These people went on to describe John the Baptist as a man with a demon and to the Lord they said he is a glutton and a drunkard a friend of tax collectors, yet wisdom is justified by his children. These people are simply divisive. They have been exposed to the truth, yet through hardness of heart continue in their deception. Romans 2:8 As the scripture says these ones until they repent, shall never come to the knowledge of the truth. There is a peace that submission to Jesus brings.
Dear brother or sister do not be deceived. The Bible shows and teaches how men are deceived. Col 2:8 Men are taken captive by philosophy that is human wisdom and also vain and empty deceit with its source from traditions of men (ideas that men have transferred from generation to generation). These philosophy and vain deceit also proceed from studies from our physical world, called science and not after Christ. Our Lord Jesus is not a myth, classical history and Biblical history reveals He lived on this earth, born of a virgin, worked so much miracles (He still works miracles through those who have believed in him). He was crucified by Pontius Pilate, but rose from the grave on the third day.
HE stands at your heart today, knocking that you would repent and let Him in. All those who let Him into their lives have experienced peace beyond human understanding. They have encountered the power of the Spirit to living victorious over sin, Satan and situations of life. Jesus is alive and real. Stop being divisive and receive Him who is the way, the truth and the life. You would come to the end of your search for reality. This is your moment to encounter Him who has transformed millions and is still counting. Jesus is the head of all principality and power. He says, I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock, if you would open your heart to Him today, He would come in and make life more meaningful to you. Countless atheists hardened criminals, as well as people of very good morals yet did not know Him, have all given him their hearts and have now found reality. I have found him; he is my lord and my life is a great delight. Stop being divisive and give your heart to Him today.
Jesus is the only way. Jesus is truth. Jesus is life. What an amazing truth. He is the Lord of my life and I am free from the domain of evil.
