KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 28:12 KJV” And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,”
It is a common practice for men to try to cover the truth in our day. Some wicked powerful people may even kill the person they think is privy to an information they do not want to come out. In the Lord Jesus time the chief priest bribed the watch or the military guard to say that, Jesus disciples came for the body of Christ. This was an impossibility, since they could not over power the Roman soldiers.
The truth about Jesus’ resurrection has been fought in every means possible, yet the good news is that men continue to be saved by the resurrection of Jesus. Christianity has stood the test of time. The persecution of the church has not stopped the spread of the gospel. The apostles were killed for their faith. Their message was that, the Lord Jesus showed himself alive unto them, by many infallible proofs over a period of forty days (Acts 1:2-4). These were men who were so fearful that they hid in some room and they all deserted the master at His arrest. The apostle Peter denied the master for three different occasions. All these men within a short while were so bold that, they asked the teachers of the law and high priest, that who should they obey, God or man?
Dear child of God May you be so convinced about the resurrection of the master so you would be very strong to defend your faith whenever the occasion arises.
To the man who has not made that decision to believe in Jesus, please don’t fight the truth. Consider these evidences and make a decision to surrender your life to Jesus. Believing in Jesus; would transform your life. If you are sick, you can be healed. If demons are tormenting your life, you would be delivered. If the guilt of some sin keeps tormenting you; that power would be broken. He said, I came that you might have life, and have it more abundantly (John 10:10) There is peace for every tormented soul. Don’t continue refusing to give yourself life to Jesus. Today is the acceptable time. Today is your day of salvation.
Dear heavenly father, I surrender my life to you. I acknowledge my sins before you and repent of them. Today I confess Jesus as my Lord and saviour of my soul. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for dying and resurrecting for me.
