Wise Men Still Seek Him (3)

Wise Men Still Seek Him (3)

‘God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.’

Acts 17:27 NIV

When Jesus was born, the biggest issue then was the need for lower taxes and a different government.

Sounds familiar, huh? In Jerusalem, the capital, we read, ‘When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.’ (Matthew 2:3 NIV).

As a result, he committed one of history’s greatest atrocities by killing every Jewish baby boy under the age of two, in order to get at Jesus.

Today, Jesus still forces a reaction in the hearts of men and women!

Some people want to take Him out of the classroom, the courtroom, and even government. The forces of darkness are doing all they can to try and remove His name, His influence, and His authority from all public life.

Why? Because when you do away with God, there’s no higher power than yourself, so you get to play god!

Lenin, the father of Russian Communism, said of Christ,

‘His kingdom is invisible; His rule is in the hearts of men; so He can’t be tolerated.’

As a result, over 20 million people died during the revolution in an attempt to build an atheistic (godless) state.

But fighting God is futile; it’s a battle you can’t win, because ultimately ‘…every knee shall bow… and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord’ (Romans 14:11 NIV).

Every prophecy concerning Christ’s first coming was fulfilled to the letter, and every prophecy concerning His second coming will be too.

So if you want to meet Him in peace, surrender your life to Him today and accept Him as your Savior if you haven’t already done so!
