Behold...your King

We need to change from "you're a precious child of the King" to "Behold, your King!" Christianity has become so "man centered". We think we worship God but really, we are worshiping ourselves. You hear it in the songs we sing and in the messages the Pastors preach on Sunday and on TV. Gone are the days of hymns that praised  the Lord highly and mentioned us as wretches.

It's not about us, it's all about God. It's all about knowing God and God knowing you. It's all about Jesus paying for our sins on the cross. It's all about Jesus rising from the dead 3 days later. If Jesus didn't rise from the dead, our faith is in vain! But we don't worship Jesus in vain. He is risen, alive and well. He will return. Not as a humble servant, but as a conquering king. Get on His side.

To the undiscerning ear

And he (Satan) led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here; for it is written, 'He will command His angels concerning You to guard You ,' and, 'On  their  hands they will bear You up , So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone .'" And Jesus answered and said to him, "It is said, 'You shall not  put the Lord your God to the test .'" Luke 4:9‭-‬12

 The devil used the Bible to try to tempt Jesus. He used the verses out of context. To the undiscerning ear, it would sound good. Just like the tree of knowledge of good and evil sounded good to Eve when Satan tempted her. So let me ask this: what makes you think your favorite TV preacher who is constantly accused of being a heretic, wouldn't twist scripture right out of the Bible to get his or her way? I'm so grieved and this topic is on my heart and in my prayers. I feel compassion for the decieved.
