KEY SCRIPTURE: John 11:47 KJV” Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.”

Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead. Some of the people believed in Him, others went to report the events to the high priest. In our key scripture  ,these  religious leaders met and discussed about what to do to Jesus. They just hated him. What was the reason for their hatred? They explained in the verse 48, that, since everyone was following Jesus, because of His miracles, the Roman authorities would soon come and take over their  Land. How realistic was that assertion? This was a man who could heal every sickness known to man. He could raise the dead. He could feed multitudes who were hungry. In a very fair world, He should have been seen as a great asset for all mankind

These people could not see the great blessing He was to all, but wanted Him dead. The real problem to them was envy. Anyone with an evil mind cannot analyse issues properly. Homes where partners allow ill motives to control them, make very dangerous judgements, and end up doing terrible things to each other. The best decision these religious leaders in Jesus’ time could come to was to crucify him. Was this the reward for Jesus’ tireless sacrifices of moving on foot across, the towns in Israel, healing multitudes. Feeding hungry people, delivering many who were under satanic bondages?

The bible gives a very good answer in the following verse Titus 1:15 KJV “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled”. The condition of a man’s heart determines how he sees life and therefore how he will relate to others. Many homes are boiling with rage because of evil negative thoughts about others, so they judge wrongly. They therefore mete out very unkind, or unfair treatment to others.

Please note, every action is a seed sown into your own life. Bad actions are bad seeds which you would surely reap the corresponding fruits. Good actions are good seeds, which you would also reap. These actions might injure another individual, yet it is a bad seed sown into your own life waiting for a harvest for you. Never get satisfied over your success in inflicting pain to your neighbour, for it is an evil seed sown into your own life, and you would surely harvest those evil fruits in its due time.


Thank you, Lord, for the truth of your word. Men reap whatever they sow. I think rightly of all men. I make right and fair judgments about all men. I give no place to envy and hatred My heart is always at peace and have good favour from the Lord. I have a kind heart towards all.


Gal 6:7, 8 KJV “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Mat 22:39 KJV “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
