KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:7 KJV “So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
Evil perpetrators should not be argued with, but must be stopped. The Lord did not attempt to engage in any dialogue with these killers, He came to scatter them. The question he gave them was intended to totally render them useless. We will always meet people who would want to put us down. Do not give them answers that would make them keep pestering you. Give them answers that would not be provocative yet powerful enough to make them silent. As they kept demanding an answer from the Lord, He was waiting for a one stop answer that will keep everyone of them away. As soon as the Holy Spirit gave the answer He gave it to them.
The basis for that answer was love for the poor vulnerable woman. One may say, the woman had sinned and needed to be punished. The question is, were these men qualified to punish that woman? These were men who were equally guilty of all kinds of offences, and had forgotten their sins, but ready to judge and kill another individual. They had to be stopped. The second reason Jesus had to stop them was the fact that He had come to bear that kind of punishment for all men. No man should die for his sins when He was around. The love in the heart of the master could not stand any sinner dying for his or her sins.
Dear brother or sister, Jesus had died for your sins. He suffered so much, so that you would be justified. He is not counting your sins against you.2Corinth 5:19 KJV” To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” No one must ever die for his sins. If you have not repented of your sins and made Jesus Lord of your life, then you may not benefit from that great sacrifice of Jesus. Jesus saved that woman that day. He has also legally saved you from eternal punishment, and a present satanic control of your life. You can also have the present peace that He gives all those who believe in Him. Would you refuse this amazing offer and allow the eternal tormentors to have you?
Jesus my Lord is the great saviour, He has legally saved every one from all satanic bondage. I make use of this loving deed to surrender totally to Him. Thank you, Lord, for saving me.
THOUGHT: JESUS NEVER WANT YOU TORMENTED BY ANY TORMENTORS
Luke 13:16 KJV “And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?”
