DO WE TRUST THE WORD OF GOD?
DO WE TRUST THE WORD OF GOD?
If the answer questions truth, then the answer is untrue. Remember “Hot or Cold”, “True or False”, “Yes or No”, anything else comes from unrighteousness and all unrighteousness is sin. The questions that are not answerable with “true or false”, or “yes or no” are included as food for thought.
If the best advocate against smoking is a reformed smoker, then wouldn’t a reformed thief be the best person to trust with “the money” (carry the bag)?
If Jesus was Glorified by the prophesy he Himself foretold and righteousness is the fulfilment of prophesy. Was not the betrayal of Jesus necessary to fulfil all righteousness?
If Judas Iscariot was with the enemy of Jesus when he came to betray Jesus, then why did Jesus greet Judas Iscariot and address him as “Friend”?
Did an enemy do God a favour (service) by “delivering” His Son to be Glorified; or did a Friend do God the Favour?
If those, whom those in the world consider to be first shall be last in the Kingdom of Heaven. Does it not then follow, that the last person those in the world give any consideration to and whose name has been dragged through the mud for centuries, be the most likely to be first after Jesus?
Did Jesus say He had chosen who “should betray him”?
Did Jesus warn the Disciples before passing the sop that the betrayer shall experience “woe” (nee deep regret and anguish)?
Did Judas Iscariot not hesitate (despite the warning) in taking the sop from Jesus?
Did Jesus say to Judas Iscariot “That Thou do, doest quickly” as Judas departed?
Did Jesus announce immediately Judas left to betray Him “Now is the Son of Man Glorified”?
Did Jesus say at a previous meeting “Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.”?
If there were only 12 who followed Jesus (including into all closed meetings of Jesus and the Desciples only) from the beginning, has not Jesus foretold that all 12 (including Judas Iscariot) will sit on 12 Thrones and Jesus on His Throne of Glory?
Did Jesus say “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”?
Is the “whaling and gnashing of teeth” by the children of the Kingdom of God who will be cast out into outer darkness the sound of them having to “Eat their own words”?
Is not the one who lifted his heel against Jesus the one who drew his sword to stand in the way of Jesus being taken to His Glory?
Did Jesus ever rebuke Judas Iscariot?
If any of our answers requires any of the Word of God to be untrue to validate our answer, then our answer is invalid or unrighteous.
May God Bless you all in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
