KEY SCRIPTURE; Matthew 26:64. “Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. “
We continue with our discussions on the trial of the Lord Jesus in the high priest palace. After the Lord had kept silence for almost some moments, he said “He would be seen sitting on the righthand of power, and would be descending from the clouds of heaven”. The Lord knew that a vivid description of His personality and authority would be received as an abomination. This would mean, the high priest calling for his execution by crucifixion. He said it all the same, because He had come to bear witness to the truth. He was not afraid of the death verdict because that would bring to pass what God has said.
Every child of God should never be afraid of the controversies that come from telling the truth. We must be bold to tell the truth always. Many are afraid of controversies and oppositions that the world will raise when we seem to be different. The glory of God is always manifested when the Lord has a man standing for Him. Children of God who take certain strong stands or boldly declares God’s position on certain matters are often placed in very critical states, yet the Lord comes through for them and brings glory to His name.
The authorities who oppose the way and truth of God, soon realise that there’s a God who rules in the affairs of men, and they are brought to their knees. It happened in the days of Daniel (Daniel 3:8-27) The Lord Jesus was crucified because He spoke the truth. He resurrected from the dead, revealing that, those accusers could not determine what happened to him. Nobody can prevent what God has said concerning those who stand for the truth. Even if they are killed, they would be glorified.
THOUGHT: GOD WILL STAND WITH ANY MAN, WHO STANDS FOR THE TRUTH
2 Kings 6:17 KJV” And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha”.
Daniel 3:25 KJV “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God”.
