They questioned his authority

After an amazing weekend I’ve learnt a lot about behaviour and I couldn’t resist myself not to share the last part of the kingdom of God with you.

I wrote a post about “can i question my belief” and the importance of holding belief lightly because we might be wrong, it reminds me of a man name Nicodemus the one who called jesus by night, being afraid of being seen with him, as he was a sympathiser or admirer of Jesus as a teacher, as it was often said “he taught not like the pharisees but as one who has authority”
I can imagine that Nicodemus in heart was torn between the truth he heard and the truth he was taught , his hole life was based on the teaching of a pharisees, he must of felt trapped!

As they sat down Jesus said:
Jhn 3:3 tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.
Jhn 3:4 “How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”
Jhn 3:5 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.
Jhn 3:9 “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.
Jhn 3:10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things?
Jhn 3:11 I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.
Jhn 3:12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?

What Jesus was saying, the natural elements around us reflects the magnitude of the kingdom of God, when we understand this, we to can access the kingdom, for all spiritual truth to be fulfilled in Human life.

The Religious order of that day was so corrupt as the politics of religion only cause the virtues to be totally void In a fruitless system, what jesus really brought to the people in Israel was an authentic culture full of virtue and life that addressed the needs, health and well being of the common man.
Religion had lost touch with humanity only to become an institution with no godly virtue.

One day the people brought a blind and mute man to Jesus, as he healed the man from his blindness
And his mute condition the people said is this “the son of David” a term referring to Jesus as the Messiah
The Pharisees being in opposition to jesus’s authority said : Mat 12:24 “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
This wasn’t the first time they questioned Jesus authority, just to show you how serious this massage is, this same religious people set up Jesus to be killed. The same desires today in religiosity is trying to kill off the virtue in all believers to became cynics exercising discrimination amongst peoples ,races and denominations in the world , just listen to there conversation on tv, radio even still the questions and comment on their blogs, it says it all .

Next time anyone questions your authority know that the love of God behind your actions endorses you to move spiritually and God the father will place his seal on You

2Ti 2:19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His”
