Don’t spend your life in denialPublished 12:00am Saturday, January 14, 2012
The Rev. Maxwell Moody
Do you doubt that Jesus was God come down from Heaven? Do you doubt that He humbled Himself to the extent that He entered earth as a newborn baby through the Virgin Mary’s womb?
If so, then you reflect the same mindset as the religious Jews of Jesus’ day. Listen to Jesus’ response to their unbelief.
“No man can come to Me, except the Father, Who hath sent Me, draw him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, and they shall all be taught of God. Every man, therefore, that hath heard, and have learned of the Father, cometh unto Me.”
Let me now share with you who are in denial, doubt, uncertainty and disbelief the stark contract of the absolute promises of my God.
First – “All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me and I will in no wise cast him out.”
Second – “And this is the Father’s will Who hath sent Me, that of all that He hath given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.”
Are you being drawn to Jesus? If so, rejoice and claim the third promise.
Third – “And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that everyone who seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Note: In the above third promise, God the Father promises everlasting life, states the way Fourth – “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.” (Jesus speaking.)
In this fourth promise, we see that God, the Father, has made good on His promise through Jesus Christ, God and the Son. Will you now come to the Lord Jesus? If you are being drawn, come while the invitation is still extended. You will be glad you did!
