At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
JESUS – GOD’S CHOSEN SERVANT
Jesus spoke about the Sabbath that the Pharisees had practiced about no work on that day. Jesus was asked if it was permitted to heal the sick during the Sabbath. Jesus withdrew and many followed him. He healed all who were sick warning them not to reveal who he was. This act was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
“Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. In his name the nations will put their hope.”
WOE TO UNREPENTANT CITIES
Jesus spoke to his audience by denouncing the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.
“Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsalda! Had the miracles been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”
THE IMPORTANCE JUST THE SAME TODAY AS YESTERDAY
Why do I give you these rarely thought about quotes from Jesus? Read and study the Book of Matthew.
Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? These two cities were so evil that they represented an abomination (a thing to be hated) in the sight of the Father who sent two angels (aliens) to visit and save Lot and his family prior to the angels destroying them by raining down burning sulfur from the heavens. So horrible was the aimed destruction that Lot’s wife who looked back was turned to a pillar of salt.
The full story of the God’s abomination, the multitude of sinners and their destruction, can be found in Genesis 19.
The historic question is, what constitutes homosexuality and lesbianism and where did the human race alter its long-standing voice against such practices? Liberalism and the belief that mankind advances toward a condition of immortality as a thought process rather than be given as a human spiritual eternal God-love existence found birth with the progressive movement that people– men and women, would create a new world where God was merely a figment of man’s imagination rather than fact based as given in holy scripture of the Bible. It created its own spiritual god that there was no evil, no Satan, no good or bad angels–just an unproven pipe dream that unfortunately many politicians and many in government embrace.
For the Christian, the truth is hidden within the confines of the Bible and Christian doctrine. I do not speak with contempt or rancor. I do not know the end. Only the Father knows the time, the conditions, when he will send his Son Jesus back to earth, the final battle of angels, to rule as written in the holy book: WITH A ROD OF IRON.
These words were not chosen at random. Why not a twig or a branch from a tree. It is because these can be broken and destroyed. Not so one stick composed of iron–thus, a rod of iron can be bent but not destroyed. Perhaps that word bent might suggest that Jesus is willing to bend in the hope of finding repentance and forgiveness for the human race.
THERE IS NO GOD — THE ATHEIST BIBLE
Vanity–the human condition– has no foundation. I might suggest that atheism has no foundation. It has a loose belief stemming perhaps from a socialist view that bred such isms as communistic debauchery and proven to have no soul. No, the Bible speaks more truth than fiction. Its history of worldly wisdom of course exists only back to the time of the written word and observance of man’s relationship within the universe–stars, land, sea.
