The WORST Scripture in the Bible.
How can there be a WORST Scripture in the Bible? Let me explain. After Jesus took His last breath on the cross there were a bunch of soldiers/officers who participated in carrying out the crucifixion. The second Jesus gave up His life, the Bible says the temple curtain ripped in two from top to bottom. There were earthquakes, the ground shook under their feet AND believers that had died CAME BACK TO LIFE AND POPPED UP OUT OF THE GROUND! Later, they were seen around town and appeared to many.
Well, as you can imagine, those soldiers/officers where scared to death. That’s when they spoke the worst Scripture in the Bible.
An army officer and those watching Jesus with him saw the earthquake and the other things happening. They were terrified and said, “Certainly, this WAS the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54 GW)
How horrible it would be to realize Jesus WAS who He claimed to be, the Son of God. I believe…..in the society we live in today, there will be more people than ever who will WISH they had paid attention to Jesus and His words. Listen, too late is just that…too late. There are no “do overs.” No, “But, wait a minute!” And no, “But I was about to…” or “I didn’t have time…” Too late is too late! You have no say-so for a “that was.” But, if YOU are reading this blog, you still have time to change to a “that is.”
When I was run over by that 13,000 lb. CASE 580 backhoe it only took a millisecond. In a few more minutes I felt like I was about to take my last breath and then wake up in heaven. I had more PEACE at that moment than I have ever had in my life. I am sooooooooo glad I didn’t have to think about who Jesus WAS. I already knew who He IS.
What about YOU? Are you a “Jesus IS” or will attempt to beat-the-clock as a “Jesus WAS?” The choice you make about this statement will determine your eternal destiny. Just remember, we ALL live forever….it’s just a matter of WHERE?
