Preparing The People
Would you rather stand for Jesus Christ and have the world judge you or stand with the world and have Jesus Christ judge you?
God, in his love for mankind, sent the answers to our questions, showed us truth, made himself and his ways known. From creation and Adam and Eve’s son Abel being murdered by his own brother through Zacharias who was killed in the synagogue, all these murders, God is going to hold those alive at the time Jesus walked the earth accountable for their blood. (See Matthew 23:34-36 & Luke 11:50,51 ).
Why that generation? Because Jesus was going to die on the cross and pay for all the sin. So going forward, from the cross, things changed. But my focus right here is on how God makes himself known. How God communicates with mankind. In Matthew 23 and Luke 11, we are told how God communicates :
~ wise men
~ then God sent Jesus Christ
We still have scribes and wise men, pastors and teachers as mentioned in the New Testament. We now have the Holy Spirit.
How did the world respond to God? They killed the people God sent. They scourged or beat them, they persecuted them and even crucified them. Today, they do the same thing except today they bring lawyers in to sue and steal believer’s life savings.
Luke 11:45-48 KJV
Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
The lawyers “allowed” these deeds. Lawyers use these deeds to profit. When lawyers come against God’s people because they have a client that wants to ruin a child of God, not only is the client in trouble with God, but so is the lawyer.
I have seen it over and over in my own life. When I did nothing against someone and that person did something to harm me, God did indeed go after them. In two cases, God killed them within about 2 years or less from the time they harmed me. One died of brain cancer the other an internal infection. I wept because one man left a wife and 5 children.
Friends, if you are a true child of God, God is your protector. He is righteous and will straighten things out either here on earth or in heaven on judgment day.
Life and purpose are not a game with God. We are at war with spiritual wickedness. Even when our ” leaders ” willfully and knowingly do things against God and his word, there is a day of reckoning coming.
Pray for your enemies.
