KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:63 KJV “Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.”
At the beginning of creation, the devil challenged the truth of God given to Adam. He blatantly said to Eve, God is lying to you. He knows that if you are to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, your eyes would be opened, and you would be like God (Gen 3:4-5). Eve believed the devil and so ate the fruit and gave some to her husband who also ate. Since then, Satan has used men to fight the truth. The reality is that error has never won over truth.
When the Lord was born into this world the enemy working through men tried to kill Him, so the truth would not prevail. (Matt 2:13-16) Once again error lost the contest. After Jesus’ death and burial, the conspirators of his death went to the governor and sort permission to secure the grave of Jesus so He would not rise up. They called Jesus the deceiver and that He said He would rise on the third day.
Men aided by Satan have continually fought the truth. Please note, the act of fighting the truth means that individual is deceived and lost.
2Timothy 3:13 KJV” But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
Many people have tried to say very abominable things about Jesus yet His words, keep restoring the down cast, as well as bringing peace to the tormented. Christians have not lifted a sword in AFGANISTAN, IRAN and other hard core Islamic nations, yet day in and day out many are converted to Christ.
Many of them testify of meeting the resurrected Jesus.
The French philosopher VOLTAIRE (1694-1778) who said the bible would not be read after a century after his death, ironically had his very house becoming a printing press of the bible exactly 50 years after His death (crossexamined.org). You are always the loser fighting the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is a Ghanaian young man preaching common sense, and he claims he would empty the church. God have mercy on him. He would be saved, and the sad part would be the many he has deceived. Dear reader, Jesus is the truth, and no one can destroy His witness. He is the light of the world. Fighting him, means you are in darkness. Stop that impossible venture and surrender to Him today.
THOUGHT: As darkness can’t challenge the sun, so is the man who tries to put Jesus down. Repent and believe in Jesus.
Lord Jesus have mercy on me, and forgive my sins. I surrender my life to you, as I confess you as my Lord and saviour. Thank you for saving my soul.
