And those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. Matthew 26:57 New King James Version
Jesus’ trial was illegal and the Sanhedrin knew it.
How many people in church suffer because of illegal activity by the elders?
They are tried by the elders in a complete way that is forbidden by Christ. They get together and do a hatchet job on the preacher because they do not like what he is saying or the choirmaster because they do not like the music the choirmaster plays and the innocent lose their jobs. Isn’t the church as a body of Christ to decide, not a select few?
The Sanhedrin sent Jesus to Pilot who represented the justice system. Even though Pilot knew Jesus was innocent he condemned Him to satisfy the people. How many judges know that the accused is innocent but condemn them to satisfy the politically correct?
Pilot sent Jesus to Herod and Herod represented the government. He condemned Jesus to satisfy the people for political reasons. Again, how many times does our government know these are bad laws but make them because it is politically correct?
Has our system really changed over three thousand years?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Nissi (God who goes out before us) bless me to concentrate only upon Your divine guidance in my life. When others are used by satan to attempt to distract me or dissuade me please bless me with Your holy conviction in my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who refused to be swayed by all of the evil ones conniving attempts to prevent Him from giving the ultimate glory to You Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
