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…

I Love You- More than just a Word

And so, I thought to myself- Yo Tosin, what did you just do… I know this feeling…. Holy Spirit take the lead- what’s past has passed for a reason. Therefore I put up this piece for any one that has ever been in love or hurt from love and to those who will be in love soon enough (again). It’s an outpouring of the mind, Learn from it- it’s an Idea, a perspective to your situation, unique to your own understanding.  Learn from it-
the 1st 6 stanzas gave ‘birth’ to the 7th stanza, which in turn produces the last 5 stanzas. This is a contextual piece, Happy Read!

Still relevant were my imperfections,
Yes I was full of repeatations,
Even though I had full blown confessions
that I was never going to lose focus on you my mission.

You see,
When I first began on this mission,
I could have sworn nothing was going to cloud my visions,
I knew within me I had all the provisions,
Because the definition of my passion wasn’t fiction.

My intuition told me if only I drove far enough,
My credibility would be good enough;
So I yielded to the pain- hurt- tears- only long enough
to realise ‘near enough isn’t always good enough’

I was set to make a difference,
But became selfish and
things began presenting themselves differently,
The change didn’t come from anything else
but the man that became different
And yes- they are indeed different!

Like fractions,
We began dividing our future actions,
Knowing no compromise,
we apologised with each subtraction,
Subjections- as we floated on cloud nine with each motion.

As with more and more intense pressure,
it became more rocky
I feared for the present because
though the future smelled rosy,
In the now- what I feared presently exist as ‘us in the past’
When I first started on the this mission,
I had a pretty good definition of my position
we promised and hoped she would last.

We fell and blamed it on time
we grew distant and blamed it on distance
we lost touch for the fear of the communication we couldn’t account for
we fell in love and lost lust infatuated it from us

If I could turn back the hands of time
I wouldn’t try to impress you
I wouldn’t try to please you beyond my control
I wouldn’t pretend to be someone else
I would try so hard, not to be obsessed about you

If I could turn back the hands of time
I wouldn’t be selfish for me
I would be selfish for us
you would never be wrong with me
I would only tell you about your wrongs

If I could turn back the hands of time
I wouldn’t love your with all my heart, soul and body
I would rather love you as my neighbor
then, as myself
I wouldn’t love you more- I wouldn’t love you less

If I could turn back the hands of time
we wouldn’t ignore our shortcomings
encouraging us to significantly not take notice
our love wouldn’t be blind- I promise
at sight, with love- in time; we would always correct each other

But I can’t turn back the hands of time
SO DEAR FUTURE US
I come into our love with One Less mistake
if there is anything I’ve learnt, it’s that
I love you, is more than just a word.

I Love You.

With LOVE,
