Jesus before Pilate!


After the Jews arrested Jesus they were desperate for him to be killed, so they took him to Pilate who could apply the death penalty. The Jews said to Pilate, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death" John 18:31.

Pilate interrogated Jesus, but could not find any fault in Him at all. He called Jesus, and said to Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?

Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here." John 18:36.

Hear this, the kingdom we preach is not of this world, but is the kingdom of heaven or of God.

Anyway, he asked Him again, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." John 18:37. That’s why Paul said, "...Christ Jesus witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate..." 1 Timothy 6:13.

Jesus answered Pilate, "Are you speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell you this concerning Me?" John 18:34.

Now, I will ask you the same question my friend, do you actually know the truth or believe for yourself or you are just following a crowd? Is salvation something you’ve personally experienced or it’s a hearsay, but in you not confirmed facts?

The desire to fit in is so strong that some people sometimes conform to a group consensus even when it goes against their own judgment - at least in public. In private, they're much more likely to follow their own minds. What’s in your mind?

I am saying this because I would like you to follow your own heart my friend;  be willing to listen to your inner guidance, as it happens to you, and "we having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak." 2 Corinthians 4:13. Be true to yourself - remember it’s the truth that sets free. If you need help don’t hesitate to call me.

Pilate was a bit unease when he had that Jesus was the son of God, "he was the more afraid; he went again into the judgement hall, and said to Jesus, "Where are You from?" But Jesus gave him no answer. Then Pilate said to Him, "Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?" Jesus answered, "You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin." John 19:8-11.

No one can have power, authority, control and command over you unless it had been given them from above.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
