[Insert your question here…] I wish I had a wonderful answer for you… however, in my life I have learned to stop struggling over what has not been revealed to me. Jesus said, “Why ask ye among yourselves of that which I said?” Here’s an excerpt from “The Questions of Jesus” book, Q.118, page 377.
We Should Go To Him
We should have no fear of making Him our teacher and ask Him for clarification or explanation. Why do we go to the professors or other so-called experts? If we but ask, He can make it plain to us. It is His desire to do so. When Jesus explained His comments the disciples exclaimed, “Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things…”
Revelation from the Most High is probably one of the greatest experiences of the Christian’s life. It forms a bond, a communicative bond, between God and us. After all, the main difference between our God and the gods of stone is that our God speaks!
The Scriptures are replete with examples:
Jeremiah 33:2-3, “Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
John 5:39-41, “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men.”
Deuteronomy 29:29, “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
Mark 4:22, “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”
1 Corinthians 2:10, “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit; For the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
When you do not understand, when the sayings are obscure, when you are not clear on a point, a doctrine, a concept, you are to go to Christ and not one another. He can make it clear, expand upon it, or dispense with it altogether. He is the teacher, He is the revealer, and He is puzzled by your lack of confidence in Him when you go to man and his narrow understanding for answers.
When you are perplexed about something that He is trying to teach and you forsake Him for the wisdom of man, or when He finds your nose in books on Greek and Latin, or discovers that the concept, idea or mystery that He has been trying to reveal to you being bandied about in discussion groups, He asks, “Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said?”
References to the red ink, red letters or red words is to distinctly identify the words spoken by Jesus Christ as recorded in the Scriptures. The origin of the Red Letter Edition Bible is attributed to the 1899 idea of Louis Klopsch who perceived that the words of Jesus should stand out from the rest of the script.
The answer all mankind should know, “What did Jesus say?”
If I extend courtesy to you (not tolerance, not judgment, just a lack of condemnation) and you do the same for me. We can get along forever. We should at least be as good to others as we want them to be to us. Don’t miss this program!
Jesus said it this way, “ …Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself…Thou art not far from the Kingdom of God.”
We must “get” loving our neighbor right! Our love for God is measured by how we love our neighbor.
Oh, really? I’m not. I love the book, live by the book, I like the book, fascinated by the book, glad I have the book – but, I am a child of God. Yeah, He’s the author. That’s a neat deal. We must hear what Jesus is saying. If we don’t get this continuing revelation right; we are not going to do any better than our forbearers who made a god out of the Bible and who have become people of a book. “People of the book” and they are proud of that. They say, “Yes. We’re a people of the book.” Don’t miss this important message. The authority of God’s Word…
“… if we don’t get this right, the tribulation is going to be sittin’ under a tree pickin’ it’s teeth with our bones…”
It’s Passover. The time of year where everyone ignores what Jesus said. What did Jesus say? “This do in remembrance of me..”; paraphrased, He said, “Things are changing.”
Jehovah God is the King of Simplicity. There is nothing superfluous in His life. We, on the other hand, fill the calendar with holidays and pagan names. To God, it is First month, Second month, etc. “… It’s a matter of authority…”
Can you see the Kingdom of God?
Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.”
