“The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. – Act 5:30 NKJV
Have you murder Jesus in daily basis? The word of God that is Jesus is living within our soul. A dwelling place of the Spiritual essence of God in all fellow Christian. He has left the cross and have live in us via the Holy Spirit. By forsaking those that need to reprise the principal of God send and disallowed another godly believer passion to invest and serve to his purpose in God will. This is against God purpose. This is totally obstruction! By that division of harassing and managing partiality within the kingdom of God on legalism and strict rules of favoritism in associate as an “earthly membership” is therefore tantamount to hanging Jesus in the cross. It Is like creating another sect from the source of Christianity. Why I say that because we favored and divided among ourselves in God principles. Since we are from Christ we as an elder or ruler is not to rule over the flock with an iron scepter but with much more godly and fatherly example with humility.
Yes, Jesus has to die again, saving us from the damnation and the clutches of offenses that was abuse within the corner of his church and association. Depravity and proudness of the governing entity role on. But the wrath of God come upon those that was offended and mistreated in frequent ground of continuous abuse and neglect by the shepherd that was solely responsible for their well-being in church. God saw this bad and ill-responsive treatment. Since Holy Spirit that dwell within is that operating as “god” in us (John 10:34-35), this has transform us and impregnated Jesus Christ feeling and character in us. So when those Christian who does not mandate Jesus Christ teaching and commandments are equal to mistreated Christ in and within themselves.
With that day to day offenses and abuses that was accumulated and the root of truth and freedom that is forgotten covet by the tradition of life. We have stealthily cover up godly principle replacing it to the principles of the world and legalism of men. Not knowing that some sway from the truth of God but continue to justify His ways in oracle of own righteousness. This is why Jesus has sternly rebuke those Pharisee and teacher of laws over such self-righteousness and misbehaved.
Murdering Christ is like mistreated our neighbours. How our reaction and personality causing favoritism and practise partiality to our Christians brother next door. How we taken out the context of the words focusing part of the truth and shread away another of the bigger portion of God’s decree. Evading and manipulating certain roles and responsibilities of the sow spiritual predestined direction into each people destinated will of God. God is watching from above within the side and ultimately in our soul. He breath in and thru us. We have forgotten that He has the capability to hear everything, because God in us feeling and searching our heart constantly. He heard our flesh whispering, whinning and internally reasoning amongst us in the dawn of our thought. That why He is omniscient!
We built building like Solomon’s Temple forgotting that those where just a small fraction of truth in God about evangelism. Justifying His purpose as our own work in the Lord’s Kingdom and controlling the accumulate resources both time and valuable to meet our obligation. Remember God purpose is to ask us prayed to the Lord of Harvest for the harvesting of the great field as God himself will sent and finalize the reward and mandate of that ripeness to that field.
Again we murder the people of God with that deception of commercialization and marketing on large scale forsaking the right and weightier thing (Matt 23:23) of God to be more personal and friendly as a Pastor in charge. We treat person as a merchandise fruits and items. Investing and targeting those that have riches and resources but forsake those that poor and limited. We murder those rich by allowing them pride of responsibility and killed those poor and lest fortunate by stripping them off their inheritance to God Kingdom to serve in the field that God has chosen. Nope we continue invest in the same proprietor of candidate and evolving out a sect and cult from such favoritism and selection.
The one leadership from the top calling is not always matched with the same commitment and conviction. In order to grow big rather that grow submission into godly relationship the management of the church hired and delegated a shepherd to mend over the flock. That why when the “wolves” came and vulture the pasture the shepherd just ran away. (John 10:12-13) They ran away by not actualize love. They do not pay attention to the care and need of the people. They do not visit and get close to the people. They practise “let just pray” and leaves the need of the people to themselves and by themselves. They practice 20/80 concept of humility, an wisdom. Go for the blemished sheep and forsake the tainted sheep in the church congregation. It is fine some that leaves because they are of no value and usage to the church.
God would have disapproved on such a practice in His house because His son Jesus Christ willing to die for his church, that’s all of us on the cross. So every time when we act or exercise anything against His precious one. We, in our own chosen generation of God will rise up as Jesus Spirit in us. the Spirit of Christ will go against the evil and contaminate principles.
We have forgotten that thru the generation of mankind many mighty man of God that have fallen and sway from the truth. Some repented and come back while other end up beguiled and cursed with domination of death for altering the faith and path of the will of God by being too selfish, stubborn and self righteous.
It is concluded,
“For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.” – Rev 22:18-19 NKJV
