JESUS THE ACTIVIST

I sometime wonder how Jesus would conduct himself if he were alive on earth and was in the flesh today? Would he be passive and kept in the place that the politicians and educators had carved out for him?

The Sanhedrin represents the religious hierarchy of today, with their pretence of being one with Christ.

The record shows Christ’s utter contempt for the hypocritical leaders in the temple and what would he think of so called ministers of today that are building up their personal kingdom of self in his name?

Many of the pulpits of America are filled with actors that are playing the part of Holy Ghost filled disciples, but they are only building up the kingdom of SELF and being enriched by it.

There is one thing common among believers in Christ and that is a desire for the miraculous to be manifested among us, and these pretenders are willing and able to take advantage of that.

Matthew 7:22 - 23 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you that practice lawlessness."

The time is coming, called by Christ “that day” when all defenses of Evil done in this life will fade away and the gavel of final justice will be sounded.

The thing missing on that day will be mercy and grace for that day will have passed.

Jesus said “whoever is not for me is against me” they are called  “antichrists.”

The occupation doesn’t matter or the station in life or how nice you are. If you are not for Christ and his Kingdom he will say “I never knew you.”

The Greek word anti is Αντί" it can mean not only “against” and “opposite of”, but also “in place of.

To be antichrist can mean you accept something else in place of Christ, be it another religion, philosophy or things of the world. The operative word is

Take heed!

Deuteronomy 11:16 "Beware that your hearts are not deceived, and that you do not turn away and serve other gods (things) and worship them.

Christianity is not based on good intentions and suggestions, but upon positive, active Faith in Christ and prudent actions in our walk.
