Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 36

Christ’s fulfillment of the law did not take effect until after his resurrection. Therefore, all of those who encountered Jesus encountered him while living under the authority of the Old Testament. Jesus was still in the process of fulfilling those laws when Jesus encountered Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. The presence of Jesus always changed the “room” so to speak when Jesus showed up (unless he chose not to). I find this still to be true today. When truth enters the room, lies and deception are exposed and the folly of the wisdom of man falls short. Jesus not only speaks truth, He IS truth. Jesus not only lived a holy life, He IS holy. Jesus is not only the son of God, He IS God.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 35

1) The Moral Laws relate to justice and judgment, includes the Ten Commandments, and they illuminate the fallen state of mankind. 2) The Ceremonial Laws seem to focus on the Jews regaining right standing with God through old testament “rituals” and thus separating them from pagan nations. These laws do not include the ten commandments. 3) The Judicial/Civil Laws focused upon the culture and location of the Jewish people and provided guidance concerning relations within the Jewish community. These laws governed everything from murder to minor disputes and set forth penalties. They did not include the Ten Commandments

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 34

Jesus is in the final months of his life on this earth. He is aware of what lies ahead and what it will entail. He is also keenly aware of the future of his apostles. He understands the hardships they will face and that most of them will be murdered because of their faith in him. He has rejoiced in the fact that his Father has chosen to bless those who the sinful world has chosen to ignore. He is praising God that it does not take intelligence, position, or power to be welcomed into the family of God, but rather innocence and faith. And He is rejoicing with his disciples that they have seen an amazing and miraculous demonstration of God’s power.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 33

The world in which we are to witness is volatile to the Gospel of Jesus. We are not to sell the Gospel nor are we to make the Gospel unavailable to some while gifting it to others. We are to go to all the nations and prepare them for the return of Jesus Christ. We proclaim His message and if a son of peace hears his Gospel he will respond and the peace of Christ will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to us. We will have the peace that being obedient brings to us. But, if one comes to Christ we are to have fellowship with them.
