The Unchanging Power of the Truth

A Study of Matthew 27:32-61 with a focus on verse 37 (Kjv)

‘… and set up over His head His accusation written, ‘this is Jesus the king of the Jews’…”-37

From our understanding of the Bible, Jewish people did not believe and still do not believe in Jesus, to be the King of the Jews (the Messiah). This was even the accusation labeled against Him as scripture explains it, but why wasn’t the inscription- “This is Jesus who claims to be the king of the Jews”? Surely it couldn’t have been a space problem!

Yes, in so doing they tried to mock Him, but when dealing with the Truth, whether consciously or unconsciously, even your enemies cannot deny it. It is important to note that it would have made more sense if the inscription was the latter expression because, there were people who didn’t know Jesus as King- let alone as someone who claimed to be one. Therefore, it would only be normal for them to see Jesus and know exactly what he is guilty of- Remember, the inscriptions are placed so that people can know what your offense is; in the case of the robbers; anyone seeing them would know they were guilty of robbery, not that they claimed to have robbed. But in the case of Jesus, as the Bible tells us, the Jews did not crucify Him because ‘He claimed to be the king’ but because ‘He is the king’, as recorded in verse 37 of our study guide.

The point is this- As seen from Vs.51-54, the truth will always come out; though delayed- it can never be denied.  When people falsely accuse you, or when people try to hold you down from the truth of who you are, learn from Jesus- hold on to God and they themselves,  will be the ones to affirm to the truth of who you are.

Jesus at any point could have wanted to ‘show off’ and freed Himself from them “but for the joy set before Him, He endured till the very end”. One Key truth Christ left us with from this message is that when we find ourselves in such trying times ( of whatsoever nature), whatever decision we decide to take should always remain in the will of God and in so doing, in the presence of our accusers, we will be liberated and subsequently celebrated.

I therefore decree and declare for you today, in the name that is above all names; that anyone that wants to deny the glory God has placed upon your life, will be the same person to promote it in Jesus name!!!

The story of Joseph and Esther-as seen in Genesis 37-41 and Esther 2-7, respectively, further explain this prayer. 

 

When the enemy is done planning; God’s blessings always comes! If the enemy doesn’t repent, he will fall into the trap he set for you. Here’s the good news though and the message of the cross, the enemy can repent; that is why Christ died on the cross- To Bring Forgiveness and Hope in Salvation.

God bless you as you walk in His footsteps…

Can They Really Change Who We Are?

The Unchanging Power of the Truth

‘… and set up over His head His accusation written, ‘this is Jesus the king of the Jews’…”-Vs 27

But in the case of Jesus, as the Bible tells us, the Jews did not crucify Him because ‘He claimed to be the king’ but because ‘He is the king’. With their mouth they said and wrote it, as is recorded in verse 37…

The point is this- As seen from Vs.51-54, the truth will always come out; though delayed- it can never be denied.  When people falsely accuse you, or when people try to hold you down from the truth of who you are, learn from Jesus- hold on to God and they themselves,  will be the once to affirm to the truth of who you are.

For a clearer understanding of this prayer, here’s the story of Joseph and Esther-as seen in Genesis 37-41 and Esther 2-7, respectively

Joseph had a dream, in this dream, he was to become great- he told his brothers, and immediately,  they sort on how to bring him down (The thing is this, when God is on your side, anything else anyone does will turn out to be working for your good), but ended up leading him to his promise land. What they thought for evil, God turned it around for good!

In the story of Esther, Haman wanted to rubbish Modeciah and all the people that came to town with Esther. After a proper plan on how he was to destroy them (The thing is this, when the enemy is planning to destroy you, God is at the same time planning to bless you), Haman, himself was the one who ended up promoting Modeciah.

When the enemy is done planning; God’s blessings always come. If the enemy doesn’t repent, he will fall into that trip he set for you.

Here’s the good news and the message of the cross, the enemy can repent; that is why Christ died on the cross- To Bring Forgiveness and Hope in Salvation.

 

God bless you as you walk in His footsteps…

God and Man-the Thirst

SST

This is dedicated to my Special; it’s how the peace came back… I love you…

(Man…

Lord, my peace…

Word on the cross

 (God…

I am thirsty…

I am thirsty for righteousness

I am thirsty for the true worshippers; those of Spirit origin

I am thirsty for life; the actual one I gave you

I am thirsty

I am thirty for those that will walk with me

I am thirsty for those whose work for me is actually led by me

I am thirsty for you

Ironically, it’s my water in you that will quench this thirst

But you have to want it

I am thirsty…

It’s the reason I died; remember,

To be complete, actually it is ,so you don’t die

You see, am thirsty for that sinner

For this reason I came

(Man…

I am thirsty for your peace Lord Jesus

‘Am the whore whose sin is so big even sinners are hating-

Oh! I’m that killer Lord, everyone is saying “but how did he end up like this?”

‘Am the one marked sinner; however big or small

Lord, I’m thirsty for your presence; the world has failed me

Like Solomon in scriptures, everything is now vanity

Lord I’m thirsty because I used to think

Lord I’m thirsty because I now know

Lord I’m thirsty…

‘Am that lukewarm Christian;  I’ve been in the church for ages

Yet spot-full I have become

Lord I’m thirsty cause I want to be your bride when you return

I always thought I was a Christian

Never knew my actions were just me acting

Oh Lord! How sweet my mouth and ears were in serving you

While my lifestyle, motive and nature was affirming…

(God…

“I never knew you; you worker of iniquity”

(Man cont…

Lord I’m really this time thirsty, to be like you

Your original intent from the very beginning

Correcting and not condemning people

Praying and not preying people

(Thirst…

John 4:14

  “But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

John 14:6

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Rev 3:20

 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

(Man…

I am thirsty for your humility

Your forgiveness

Your salvation

For your love

Your relationship-

ME TOO, I’m thirsty for YOU, Lord Jesus!

These are not words written in the speech realm, but those written as a form of action, a Christian is not necessarily that person you are looking at, THE CHRISTIAN IS THE PERSON THAT IS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS (it could  be that person though, but the point is, it could also be you). I invite you into an intimate ultimate eternal love affair founded by a religion of a relationship with the living water that satisfies all….

John 7:37-38

“On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
