The Attack on “The Christ”

Jesus

The Attack on “The Christ”

The Reality of Jesus;

  • The Attack
  • The Understanding
  • The Revealing
  • The Revelation…His resurrection

Ladies and gentlemen before He can come again He had to first come! Who Christ is matters. He is not just a good man, just a great teacher or just a prophet.

There is a new movie out “A Winkle In Time”. The producers have taken out the teaching of Scripture and the reality of Jesus that the original book presented. Then they replaced the Biblical view with a main character being a spiritual medium expressing good teaching.

The First Attack;

Herod…gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem

and its vicinity who were two years old and under…

Matt. 2:16

  • At Christ’s birth…Satan will always form plans that justify removing the innocent. More than 650,000 legal abortions are carried out annually. The sad fact is that in 1990 1,290,000 we reported. Some say that the reporting has changed in order to take away the stigma of its painful reality. By the way 40,000,000 are estimated annually worldwide.  (Lest anyone reading this has the pain of having an abortion, Jesus forgives and loves those who come to Him)

 Herod was jealous. Herod feared his power would be taken. Herod preferred evil over worship.

  • Attacking the truth of Jesus our Lord will always hurt the innocent.

The second attack;

  • It seems that throughout history, from the time Jesus walked on this earth, people have attacked the teaching of Jesus.

John 8:13

The Pharisees therefore said to Him,

“You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true.”

Throughout the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John those who opposed Jesus had trouble with what He taught and how He taught. In Matt. 12 He is accused of breaking the Mosaic Law and His power is attributed to the Devil. In Matt. 9 He is accused of associating with sinners, hmmm.

In John 6:60 The Disciples said His teaching was too hard! They said no one can understand it. Oh too often we use the excuse of it is too hard instead of I just don’t want to do it.

Listen, write it down and live it…He is the Way, The Truth and The Life…in fact apart from Him there is only death! John 14:6

The third attack is directed

at His Resurrection;

Acts 23:8

For the Sadducees say that there is

no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit:

The Romans, the Greeks, those educated at the schools of philosophy and those deceived by darkness (The Light is needed) all hang their hats on denying the resurrection.  False religion demand it’s a lie.  Even Paul declared 1 Cor. 15:14…if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. 

1    Cor. 15 V. 20, 24 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits… He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.

Tim Keller

Come, and see the victories of the cross. Christ’s wounds are thy healings, His agonies thy repose, His conflicts thy conquests, His groans thy songs, His pains thine ease, His shame thy glory, His death thy life, His sufferings thy salvation.

Matthew Henry

The greatest negative in the universe is the Cross, for with it God wiped out everything that was not of Himself: the greatest positive in the universe is the resurrection, for through it God brought into being all.

Watchman Nee


Thank God He Is all He Taught, He Is all He came as, He Is the Resurrection!!!!! He is our peace broken down every wall…He is our unity…Eph. 2:14…
