KEY SCRIPTURE: John 7:47 KJV “Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?”
In Acts 26:24, governor Festus, who was so much informed about events about Christ suffering and the reports of His resurrection, reacted to Paul’s defense of his conversion and activities in Christ, in a rather surprising manner. Instead of governor Festus admitting to the truth said, Paul your much learning is making you mad.
When the officers who failed to bring Jesus admitted that, they could not arrest Him, because He spoke in a manner that, no other man, ever spoke that way. These authorities asked, are you also getting deceived. They knew Jesus was saying and practicing the truth, yet they said the people were being deceived.
In these times many people who know certain truths about Jesus, still fail to admit it and rather keep projecting falsehood. It is a clear fact that Jesus physically hailed from the middle east. He is not an European. Some keep saying ‘black’ Africans are worshipping a white Jesus. This is a clear refusal of the truth. Our Lord Jesus is neither white nor black.
He is Lord of all and saves all humanity who would believe in Him.
There are some people who have seen the transforming power of our Lord Jesus in some close associates, friends or relations, yet they keep rejecting the truth. Rom 1:21 says ” Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” When men reject the truth they automatically believe a lie.
We all might have heard or encountered people who used to be hard core opposers of Christ, like apostle Paul, but declare that they are converted because they have had a divine encounter with Jesus. People know very well that such people could not be telling lies, yet they stay in their error and reject the truth. Dear one, such testimonies are evidences of truth that demands your positive response, if you have not decided for Jesus.
The evidences about Jesus’ reality and power are simply undeniable
THOUGHT: APPROACH THE EVIDENCES ABOUT JESUS WITH A VERY OPENED MIND, AND YOU WOULD COME BACK DECLARING HE IS LORD.
