Many voices in the air

God’s word is very good, as it contains all that pertains to life and godliness.

Of course there are missions to corrupt this word, this word of life which is forever settled in heaven.  God sees the affront to His name, he sees the insolence of the mockers, He sees they who malign and slander others who defend his word, and most importantly, He sees they who curse the son of God, even the Lord Christ.

 

The good book reads: The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it

There are many voices in the air, many mouths, and not all are friendly. It is one thing to say ‘I do not believe in God,’ it takes an extra leap to say ‘there is no God,’ then it is quite another to cast aside his word as rubbish and I must say, it does take a special kind of crazy to attempt such things.  The influence, traction, speed, and militance of certain voices must be identified and stopped.

Two observations regarding assaults on Christ were borrowed from other posts, and as you know, are agreed upon by many. Get a picture of the ‘voices’ as well as the ‘mouths,’ and take note of the brazen inferences while you consider the source of such things, and feel your pulse. (But I apologize in advance for the next sentence)

(1) Now,  Jesus’ ‘credibility’ is the central point of this post. He has none. None at all.

Did ya catch this? The Lord Jesus Christ of scripture has no credibility!  It is impossible to be lukewarm hearing such a thought. You may as well invite the murderer of your spouse to your dinner table, who five minutes ago ended the life of your loved one while laughing about it, as to be so indifferent about hearing Christ having no credibility. What a satanic word. What a diabolical suggestion. What perverse and dark ideas coming from mouths like open sepulchers.

The Lord Jesus Christ, by whose word all things consist, has  no credibility? He who stilled a raging sea seeking to drown him, has no credibility. He who called Judas ‘friend’ has no credibility. He who made the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf to hear, the mute to speak, again, He has no credibility. He who gave hope to the hopeless, faith to the faithless, he who loved the unlovable had no credibility. He who isolated himself with a leper had no credibility. One word for this: Begone!

Image result for raging seas

He to whom the daughters of the earth found quiet dignity and infinite love had no credibility.  He to whom nature obeyed had no credibility.  Really?

He who silenced the mouth of fools and He whose understanding is infinite had no credibility. He who fed the hungry while going food-less himself had no credibility. He who answered Satan with the written word of God alone had no credibility. He who was sinless, was made sin, but had no credibility. He who is King of the great city Jerusalem has no credibility. Begone!

He upon whom hangs time and eternity, and to whom all scripture points, has no credibility. He of whom, through whom, and to whom, all glory, honor and blessing is bestowed, has no credibility. He alone whose name is WONDERFUL has no credibility. Really?

He who laid down his life for His friends had no credibility. David’s Lord and David’s greater son had no credibility.  He of whom the law, the prophets, and the psalms spoke of, had no credibility. The ‘I am’ had no credibility. He who sits at the right hand of God and who ‘stood’ at the stoning of Stephen has no credibility. He who is the First and the Last has no credibility. He to whom the rocks cried out because there was no man to sing praises had no credibility. Begone with such thoughts.

He who came to confirm the promises, the law, the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the services of God to they who were promised, had no credibility. He who came to put away sin, by the sacrifice of Himself had no credibility.  Oh my.

Where in the human heart could thoughts like these that attack the pure, good, lovely, and true son of God arise from? Surely, a person could not dream up such dung unless aided and abetted by yes, the eternal enemy of God who both hates the word, and the Christ of scripture. He can’t do away with Him, but he can ply his master craftsmanship of doubt.

(2) He (Christ) didn’t know basic regional history and didn’t, for example, let people know Moses wasn’t real.

Oh the continued arrogance, insolence, and depravity of man. Both Moses and Elijah appeared with Christ in glory, and what was the nature of their conversation? Glad you asked: Moses spoke of Christ’s decease (Exodus Gk) which He should accomplish at Jerusalem. Eyewitnesses of His majesty? Yep, Peter, James, and John. Even without the witness of the apostles, the word of God stands on its own, testifying of Moses, the law, and the prophets.

Remember the two on the way to Emmaus?  He opened their understanding:  These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. The written word testifies to the living Word.

Conveniently do away with Moses, and  presto, within seconds, God has been removed from His creation,  and………aw forget it, but not before they hear that illustrious word yet again: Father forgive them, for they know not what they say.

The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it

So a question was asked,  Who do men say I am? Many say just another wise man,  a nobody, a prophet, a leader who failed, but the better question: who do I/you say he is? And if the son of God has no credibility, He who is  the Way, the Truth, and the Life, then who pray tell does…

Be ye angry and sin not, let not the sun go down on your anger, but how is that pulse of yours by the way….

    I agree with you there, CS.

      Well, I can still thank you if you read the post, it’s too bad you arrived at such a conclusion.

        Look, I get that you disagree with whoever you’re quoting. But getting angry with someone because they’re articulating a contrary point of view is fruitless. Turning the other cheek incorporates a lower risk of heart attack.

        I’m sure Jesus will help you calm down if you let him.

          Sorry neighbor, you have a tendency to interpret things incorrectly.

          The whole idea of the pulse? It’s to gauge what you think of truth. A believer would understand this.

          A contrary point of view? Ah no, there is nothing contrary about it.

          By the way, the anger that you speak of is diametrically opposed to what scripture speaks of, for did you notice: be angry, and sin not?

          There is a right way and a wrong way, God’s way is always correct, and stands without blame.

    Just read somewhere that the great, ahem, Stephen Hawking is rather proud that he has lived a life in an orderly, designed universe (his words,) a life without a God who is, and without a God who is needed.

    Along these lines a question: Are you aware sir, that your very next breath is on loan to you from this God you dismiss?

    Then to borrow your word here W: poof. I think the spirit of God is busy at cemeteries; ‘the many voices’ of truth giving yet one more opportunity to they who are hearing ‘ashes to ashes.’

  5. Oh, amen to this post! Check your pulse, indeed. Christ said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. So, no way, no truth, no life.

    It always baffles me why people would chose to try and disparage Christ because there really is no better example of all that is good and golden in a man. Even a non believer should be able to recognize how gentle and kind He was, how He fed the poor, healed the sick, served mankind. If you cannot at least see that much, then begone for sure.

      You bring up an illuminating point about non believers insanitybytes; ok I get it, go ahead and say you are not a sinner who and doesn’t want to be ‘tied down’ to a faith; find fault with believers and come up with all the nonsense you want, but for goodness sake be honest, for the Lord was a mans man.

      All knowing but humble, wise but careful, carpentry, fishing, the great outdoors, loved children, tender, strong, masculine through and through, caring for women, hands in mud and blood; open your eyes people. There was no finer man who graced the dust of the earth, and a person truly can find no fault in Him. Love? Yea, He wrote the book on that, and proved it.

      You carried the thought of ‘begone’ to the next level; and I can appreciate that sentiment, as in ‘if that’s the way you want it………….;’ I used it in the context of blogsville 😉 and the otherworldly influence of those ‘other voices,’ which are like greyhounds. Both are sad indictments of rejecting the Lord.

      All sin. All can be too proud to repent. Some enjoy their sins, and some hate their sins.

      Those who enjoy their sins hate the person whose conduct reminds them that their sin is a sin. Because they refuse to repent — because they do not want to repent — Jesus’ sacrifice on their behalf is useless to them. Because such as these take pride in their sins, they do not want to believe their sins are sins.

      Those who hate their sins may also hate the person whose conduct reminds them that their sin is a sin. Because they will not accept forgiveness and forgive themselves, they cannot repent. They cannot accept the sacrifice Jesus made on their behalf. Their sins have become their measure of themselves. With ironic pride these see themselves as too vile to be forgiven.

      In humility, those who hate their sins may accept the fact they need God’s help to repent, to turn away from doing evil. Those who accept God’s forgiveness and forgive themselves are born again. Knowing that all sin is against God they know that if they refuse to forgive themselves they can only do so out of pride. What God decides is forgiven is forgiven.

    Remember the jeering crowds around Jesus Christ while He hung on the cross? They saw Him, they were witnesses to His mighty works, they heard Him, that teaching that was the most sublime; but they rejected Him and rejoiced in His crucifixion because they loved the praise of men rather than the praise of God.

    Their despite of genuine piety was made manifest. This is the epitome of the sin nature driven by the devil.
    What was the response of our glorious Lord and Savior while He hung on the cross and was verbally attacked by these evil revilers? “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”

    Saul, breathing threats and murder, sought out the disciples and drug them to prison because he hated Jesus Christ. What did Jesus Christ do? He met Saul on the road to Damascus and brought Him to salvation. Paul became the greatest evangelist of all time and was used by God to write for us God’s glorious Word.

    Paul said that he was an example of the amazing grace of God through Jesus Christ our Lord for those who would believe after him.
    Sinners are sinners because they hate God and are in need of the merciful grace of God to bring them to salvation. God bless you:)

      Certainly true; and thank God for this deep well of mercy; how bad must it be though for people to ‘shake the dust from their feet,’ advice given and expected to be realized by they (so it appears) who no longer have a conscience.

      Strange how the second thief was a few feet from the Lord and refused His grace; tremendously sad really, as the Lord’s greater love was rejected to the very end.

        While we can attest to the thief’s demise from the hindsight of the testimony of Scripture, none of us has the privilege of entering the holy sanctuary of the sovereign secret counsel of God in the salvation of sinners. Apart from God’s glorious grace in my life, I would be that damned thief, and I am sure many suspected that I was indeed reprobate. God, however, had other plans. God bless you:)

        archaeopteryx1 – Why don’t you stop carping for a minute and think? Look at how our government is working today. When we put people who have no sound morals in charge, does what the law says matter to them. Look at what the Constitution actually says. Look at what they are doing.

        Paul was a Roman. He had authorization from the Sanhedrin. He had connections. Do you really think Roman administrators would care enough about Christians (runaway, outcast Jews in their mind) to stop Paul from killing them? Because Pontius Pilate did not care, that is why his soldiers put Jesus to death on a cross.

  7. What a great post!!!!! It does take a special insanity to think Jesus has no credibility!!!! As we get closer to the End Times and to the Rapture there will be more people who will be against Christ and Christians and think that Christ has no credibility. Even those in the church will become like this since scripture predicts Apostasy will abound before the rapture.

      Poet-

      To some degree we must pity a person who thinks the Lord is one among many, as if He has equals, and this idea certainly did not come from scripture.

      The mere suggestion of His lack of ‘credibility’ comes from a very dark place.

      And you are correct, ‘evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse.’

          Its a tragedy that woman are made to feel uncomfortable in the skin of a female, as if God made a mistake by making them different. He made no mistake, male and female created He them, not better than one another, but certainly different. Who in their right mind could possibly disagree with nature and common sense?

          Man: woman from man
