“Trying to Thwart the Lord God’s Plan”
As believers, we are working with the Lord God; doing what He asks of us to the glory and honor of His plan.
However, at the same time believers are doing what the Lord wants, there are more people who are not.
Please, read the following verses.
Jesus Buried in Joseph’s Tomb
57 Now when evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.
58 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him.
59 When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed.
61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the tomb.
62 On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate,
63 saying, “Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise.’
64 Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.” NKJV
Now we assume that anyone working against the Lord would be evil. But as you just read, the religious people are trying to make sure that what Jesus said would happen does not?
As we read scripture, many of whom are called religious people are evil to the core.
It might sound good to be called religious, but many times being religious and Godly are two very different things.
May all Christ believers be ready to listen and be at His beck and call.
