God’s Holy Word contains many truthes that we often brush off because we either believe that they are directed to the brother to the left, or the sister to the right of us. However, as we study the Word we see things fulfilled just like they were prophesied earlier in Scripture. Think about the action we take when we see the clouds building and the thunder rolling in. These are signs of what’s to come. As we study God’s Word we must keep that in mind. We need to take heart, give God thanks for the warning, prepare our hearts for the long haul and hang tight. In this particular scripture, had Christ not suffered at the hands of, and been rejected by, the Jews, we would be eternally rejected by God. Friend, it behoves us to ready our heart for Christ’s return. The Bible foretells this, so we should count on it. If you don’t, the Bible also says that you will be rejected by God. Sad, but very real friend. Only you can change that course in your life. Do it today, please?
Pilate wrote a notice and had it put on the cross. “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews”, is what he wrote. Many people read it, because the place where Jesus was crucified was not far from the city. The notice was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. The chief priests said to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews’ , but rather, ‘This man said, I am the King of the Jews.’ ” Pilate answered, “What I have written stays written.”
