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!
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….
