Woe Unto You

celebrate Jesus Son of God

SCRIPTURE

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

~Luke 6:26, KJV

QUOTE

If the man speaking at my funeral happens to say, “Here lies Dr. Lee, he didn’t have an enemy in the world,” I will raise up from the casket and say, “You sir are a liar.”

~R.G. Lee

THOUGHT

It is hard to imagine Jesus the perfect Son of God having critics. When He encountered the man with the deformed hand; the Scribes and Pharisees were watching Him to see if He would heal on the Sabbath which would be a violation of their law.

Then Jesus said to his critics, “I have a question for you. Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” Then Jesus looked at each critic in the eye and saw their hardness of heart. This is one of three times in the N.T. where Jesus gets angry. He said to the man with the deformed hand, “Hold out your hand.” The man obeyed Jesus and was healed instantly.

The next verse is the most amazing verse in the New Testament….At this, the enemies of Jesus were wild with rage and began to discuss what to do with him. As my Friend Keith says, “Unbelievable!” Instead of concern for the hurting man or celebration of his healing; they had rage for Jesus which lead to the first of many meetings plotting Jesus death. So there you have it: Jesus had both critics and enemies: should we expect less?

  • The CAMP MEETING went well: Junior did what he always does, hit it out of the park. I love to hear this man preach. I’ve heard his jokes a dozen times and I still laugh. He is a good man and I am honored to have him as the Chairman of the Board for EASTERN GATE MINISTRIES, INC.  If you want to support EGM financially, make your checks out to BIG MAMA and they are not tax deductable for you Big Mama.
  • PROMISE BREAKERS: A couple borrowed my keys Saturday and she said they would bring them right back and I have not seen them sense, so I am clueless and keyless.
