KEY SCRIPTURE: John 7:40 KJV “Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.”
In our key scripture some of the Jews’ said Jesus is that prophet. Which prophet did they mean? Moses spoke about him in Deut 18:15. Some also said He is the Christ. Some people of our world have great contention about the person of Jesus. Some say He is a prophet like any of the prophets of old. Others say He was a great teacher, miracle worker or a good man. Sadly, some say He is a myth. Well, this aspect is most shocking, inspite of all the historical evidences. There are some world organisations which have tried to force certain relief organization like the World Vision not to attach his name to their activities. It is reported that the world class footballer Neymar of Brazil, was given a clause in his contract with a French club PSG, not to show religiosity, all because the player has always demonstrated openly his allegiance to Jesus Christ
Why such hostilities towards Jesus? Jesus never instructed His followers to be violent towards fellow men. Jesus even healed His assailant whose ears was chopped off. He healed countless people, He never cursed those who caught Him, humiliated Him so much, and finally killed Him on the cross. The difference Jesus brings to bear on the world is the fact that He resurrected from the dead. He showed Himself alive to His disciples. These disciples proved they encountered the resurrected Lord by also offering themselves to be killed for what they believed. Many people in our time have encountered Him, as He manifested to them. There are countless hard core Muslim adherents who claim they saw Him like you could see your fellow brother.
All who sincerely gave their lives to Him have experienced amazing transformations. Atheists, who claim they is no God have been saved and lives transformed. Traditionalists, intellectuals and non-intellectuals have come bowing to Jesus. Presidents of nations have also found him, and are on cloud nine. Dear one we are talking about a man whose impact on humanity cuts across every nation, colour, race, social status and what have. He is certainly not a myth. He is not a stirrer of trouble or division. What do you say about Jesus? It is your time to experience what these countless millions have experienced. Healings of divers’ kinds, transformed lives, deliverance from all kinds of bondages and indeed no one can break His record. You are the next to enjoy the amazing meal
that many have been enjoying.IT IS NOW YOUR TURN.
THOUGHT: JESUS OFFERS TRUE SATISFACTION, JUST RECEIVE HIM.
