Who is a blind leader?

And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way. And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. And when they were come, they say unt
o him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Mark 12:12-14 KJV.

They came to Jesus saying flattering things about him, and all they wanted was to trap him.

When they came, they said;
  • He was truthful and didn’t care what anyone thinks,
  • He was not partial to any, he did not regard the person of men, but  that he taught the way of God truthfully, and then they asked, Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?
Although it’s true Jesus was truthful, that he taught the way of God truthfully and does not show partiality, but it’s not true that he doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He regards the person of men. He cares;  giving honour to who it is due. 

Actually Hebrews 2:17-18 says, "Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted."

Pharisees and Herodians were not like that, they didn’t just care, and still today we have preachers who unite with evil regimes to suppress commoners. These two groups were usually opponents, but here they’re united to bring down Jesus: the Herodians were always for the political status quo and were sympathetic to the Romans. There are Christians like that, one day they’re political, another civil liberties, and on Sunday Christs or high priests. They come to you with flattering on Sunday, and all they want is to trap you for a following or money.

The Pharisees wanted the Roman oppression to be removed, but today are working with them, and they were looking for the coming of the Messiah but did not think that Jesus was the Christ, so they want to destroy him. Some preachers are like that these days, they support evil regimes for own advantage.

They worked together, with the common reason to lay hands on Him, but you blind leaders, your sins will find you out.

Earlier today I asked what defiles a man?

And I said certainly

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." Matthew 15:11

BUT

These are the things which defile a man;

"those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man..... evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies" Matthew 15:18-19.

Who is a blind leader?

Hear and understand;

Any who teach for doctrine the commandments of men is a blind leader, these are they who Jesus said, "in vain they do worship me" Matthew 15:9. 

What are commandments of men?

The commandments and doctrines of men are rudiments of this world, which aren’t spiritual put by men  to have you submit to their regulations, things such as saying; "Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using" Colossians 2:21-22. These things have a reputation for wisdom but promote only self-made religion, false humility, and self-indulgence, and the Lord said, "This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching as doctrines human commands."

Blind leaders rather hypocrites neglect the truth, and consentrate on the less unimportant, but remember my friend it's not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth - this defiles a person.

The worship of those who substitute human religious traditions for the Word is vain, it’ll accomplish nothing, it will have no result, and will be as though it never happened. No good comes, no prayer answered unless we conform to the Word.

So what shall we do?

He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father didn't plant will be uprooted" Matthew 15:13.

Resisting Jesus’ ministry will never work, will have no accomplishments. But you and me should strive to be counted on to lead others safely in spiritual matters. He said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30.


God bless you,

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

The Great Flood

May the LORD say to you, " Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation, " Genesis 7:1. Yes, may it become true of you that you are righteous, right standing before Him in this generation. If it’s the case, The LORD will shut you in, He will spread his royal pavilion over you. David says, " For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock, " Psalm 27:5.  My friend, you need the Lord like never before, to hide you when all living things around you are destroyed by this great flood, this pandemic of our time. But like Noah, remain alive in the ark my friend. Similar Posts  Let there be light The history of creation Life in God’s garden Trees are good Where is your brother?

The sons of God saw the daughters of men

God created man, both male and female he created them; he first formed man, Adam, " of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being, " Genesis 2:7. Secondly, the LORD God said, " It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him, " Genesis 2:18. The LORD then caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, " and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man, " Genesis 2:21-23. I hear Paul say, " For man is not from woman, but woman from man, " 1 Corinthians 11:8. And Moses says man are sons of God, and women are daughters of men. Eve when she conceived and bore Cain, she said, " I have acquired a
