11 “Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.” (John 3)
We do not speak of our glory; as if we are excellent examples of humanity, or heavenly beings sent to earth. No, we witness to He who alone is Good. We speak of the Righteousness of God; the Holy Son of God, Jesus.
We testify that Jesus, the Christ, is the singular way to eternal life. Not only that, but we testify that Jesus will endow His people with power to overcome sins and master temptation. In the process of this release, His people find companionship with the Holy Father of Life. As the Sovereign God is eternal, Christ’s people are given eternal life; though they die in the flesh, they shall never die again. This is the work of Christ in the souls of man.
If, in your looking around, you do not witness those who call themselves Christians overcoming, the message of the Gospel is not lessened. For the Word of the Gospel does not have its root in the mannerisms of those who call themselves Christians.
The message is an eternal message. It was before anything was made. It will be long after all the things of this world, and even creation itself, is utterly destroyed.
Look to the message, do not keep your eyes on Christians. For each Christian is but a witness to the truth, regardless the fullness of his witness. The truth lives regardless the measure each Christian applies it.
Deal with it. It’s your personal responsibility to look into these things. God will not entertain blame on the Great, Holy, and Terrible day of judgment. You have a mind. You have eyes. You have ears and a tongue. You have hands. And the Holy Word of the Bible is not too far beyond your reach to grasp. Either you desire eternal life, thus looking into these things, or you desire the way things are with you now.
I have witnessed to the truth here. It will not be taken out-of-the-way of man until the Lord returns to take His people, and seal this place for destruction. What day that is, no man knows. But it will surely come, even as your own death will usher you into the Judgment Day of God.
The witness about Jesus is quite abundant in this world. But the day will come when the message of witness will draw silent. The pleasure of Man will hold a short-lived triumph. Grasp it while it is still offered; before the Holy Door is slammed closed on the souls of men. Believe in the Holy Son of God, or perish in the sinful disrepair that is the flesh and soul of man without the power of God in Christ.
No one can understand these things unless the Holy Father opens their soul to receive it. Pray, then, that God will open your soul to understanding. Humble yourself before the Living God, that in due time He will lift you up.
