The Holy Ghost really illuminated this one to me today: what if Jesus came back today, not as in the rapture, but living in a human body as He did 2000 years ago? Would He be recognized as the Jesus that many today in America have come to know? Or would He shock everybody, when He goes about healing everybody who comes to Him? Would they call Him a false prophet and consider His miracles demonic, like many churches did with the Azusa Street Revival?
What if a man (Jesus) walked into many churches today, and began casting out demons in the services? How would most pastors handle such a person? Would they accept Him? Or would they throw Him out?
Mark 1:39, “And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.”
How many churches today would throw Him out, because His doctrines didn’t fit into their theologies? Do you know that whenever you throw out a man of God who is preaching the truth in the Word, you are throwing out Jesus? Consider this passage:
Matthew 10:40, “He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.”
I encourage you to read my teaching on The Jesus of the Bible for more information on knowing the truth about Jesus Christ in a Biblically painted picture… it would probably shock many Christians in America today to realize the true nature and likeness of Jesus!
