Oh To Be Wise Meditations

John 16:2 For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. Jesus warned that the Jewish leaders would persecute Jewish Christians. He did not want this to surprise his disciples. They would continue to worship God in the synagogue because they were Jews. But Jesus knew that the Jewish leaders would not allow this, because of the Christians faith in Jesus. This was because the Jewish leaders had rejected Jesus. They did not believe that he was God’s Son. They thought that Jesus was insulting God. So they would think that God wanted Jesus followers to die. And these leaders believed that to kill Jesus followers pleased God. These leaders belonged to the only religion that worshipped the one real God. But they did not really know him. John 16:3 They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me. Righteous Father, although the world has not known You, I know You, and they know that You sent Me. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; whoever confesses the Son has the Father as well. Its truly amazing what people will do in the name of God. Do not take the name of the LORD your God in vain means more today than ever. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. This is the message of God to world. No other message will do. LORD, wicked people with selfish hearts will do horrible things in your name. We know that you its not your will to do evil to accomplish good. You work all things for our good. Wicked schemes look nice on the outside but are inspired by demons and evil people on the inside. By this the children of God are distinguished from the children of the devil: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother. For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Evil acts done in Gods name should be condemned. God works through the message of the Cross and in righteousness and truth is the Gospel spread through out the earth.
