The Threat

When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. Matt 27:1

What was the great threat Jesus posed to everyone?
He healed the sick and lame.
He gave sight back to the blind and hearing to the deaf.
He cast demons out of the lives of those they had bondage over.
Those things seemed good.

Therefore, the real threat must have been His teaching. It was radically different from the normal teaching of the priests, scribes, Pharisee and Sadducee’s.
They saw themselves as being above the people. They believed they were different, special, and blessed by God.
Jesus makes everyone equal. His teachings show the existence of sin in every life and the need for grace and forgiveness in every life.

That is why people still plot against Jesus to put Him to death today.
His teaching isn’t in-line with the belief of the humanist or atheist. The agnostic could care less but does nothing to actively seek Him.
Jesus’ doctrine is a danger to all-inclusive tolerance, that is, the idea you can live any lifestyle you want and God will just love you into heaven without any need for forgiveness or change.

The ACLU wants Him dead and in a box. They tolerate you opening it up in the privacy of your home or just in your church. Do not dare to talk about Him openly in public.

The plot against Jesus continues today.
What is the great threat He poses?
He saves!

  1. In 2 Peter 2 We are told there are people that are like brute beasts. A brute beast is to be caught & destroyed. It puzzles me that people can see God moving and still reject Him. I do hold out hope, in Christ, that he wont give up on them until the last minute. It is their choice to submit to our Creator or reject Him. That would open a spiritual door for
    God’s favor or for the enemy to bring in fear, confusion, deception. Much like today. It will continue until the day of fulfillment & Christ will set all things right.

    Amen.
    The false teaching is: “All we need is love” or
    a “revolution of love” or
    “The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself;”
    “Love” without God – False.

    Poem – What is love?

    Two men came to Jesus
    With different motivations.
    They asked Him the same question
    Relevant to all the nations:

    Which is the Most Important?
    The answer was the same.
    Jesus did not manipulate
    He was not there to play a game.

    “Love the Lord your God” said Jesus
    as He quoted from The Law –
    to fulfill and not abolish
    was His purpose, full of awe.

    Jesus did not make all Scripture
    Into one new great commandment.
    He summarized The Law and Prophets
    “First and Greatest” and “The Second.”

    The Love of God is higher
    Than the love of any man.
    Receive from God, give back to God-
    Then to others, that’s His plan.

    The Love of God involves much more
    Than simply “love your fellow man.”
    Worship, trust, and pray to God,
    and obey Him – that’s His plan

    To worship and pray to neighbors,
    Whoever they may be,
    Or trust and obey our enemies
    Would be idolatry.

    The love of God is first and greatest,
    And the love of man is second.
    “All we need is love” are words
    of dead Beetles on the pavement.

    “The entire law is summed up in a single command”
    are not the words of Jesus our Salvation.
    It’s false teaching of Paul the Pharisee
    an “accuser of our brethren.”

    “Love” without God is Satan’s word through Paul
    in his chapter to the Corinthians.
    “I will show you the most excellent way”
    is the road to eternal perdition.

    Where is God in Paul’s chapter on love?
    Nowhere in view of the eye.
    Paul sings about himself like a Mexican Mariachi
    “I, I, I, I.”

    Jesus is The Most Excellent Way
    Not the words of a Pharisee.
    The words of Jesus are very clear.
    Jesus said, “You must follow ME.”
