A Question That All Will Have To Answer

                  What shall I do then with Jesus who is called Christ?

This is one question that has been asked down through the centuries by many of a person. There is no neutral ground here. No middle of the road as Pilate tried to do by washing his hands of Christ. You will either accept Him as your Savior or you will reject Him. A persons answer to this question will decide where that person will spend eternity.

Some of the Jews of that day made their choice. They wanted Him crucified. They rejected Him as their Savior and their Messiah. For this rejection their country was, later, destroyed and they were spread all over the world not to return to their homeland again until 1948. The Jews are still returning until this day. Even though Jesus was rejected by the Jewish people He still loves them until this day. They are His people.

This brings us up to today's world and the people that live in it. It makes no difference if you are Jew or Gentile, the color of your skin, if you are a male or female, you have to make a decision. it is the most important decision of your life. Sad to say that most of the world has made their decision. They have rejected Christ. The majority of our nation has rejected Christ. Recent news reports and surveys indicate that religion is on the decline in this country. This is so sad when this country was founded on Christian principles.

Most of the people of this nation have rejected their heavenly leader and have gave their allegiance to Satan by electing leaders to govern this country that have put God out of just about everything. His laws, His word, His teachings, and His true preachers are being rejected. He is being rejected for what our leaders consider to be politically correct ideas. They have made their choice of who they want to serve.

A few people, a remnant, of this nation want to be Biblically correct and they look to Christ. They want to live by His laws, His Teachings, and by His word that is recorded in our Holy Bible. They believe and accept the pure raw word of God. They lift up a standard and publish it. God’s standard of holiness can not be compromised. The bottom line is this: As American Citizens do we want to be Biblically Correct or Politically Correct?

This nation has a choice to make. They have a decision to make and that decision is this: WHAT SHALL I DO THEN WITH JESUS WHO IS CALLED CHRIST? Shall we, too, refuse The Lord?

As this Easter draws near let us as the followers of Christ earnestly pray for this nation to return to God. For our leaders to once again to return to the Book of Books for their instructions and laws. Let us pray for a revival that will sweep over our land and renew us all! We do not need another Boston tea party or an armed revolution. We need a coming home revival that revives this nation and puts us back in fellowship with God. As I close this commentary I want to leave with you a word straight from God’s Word that is just as true in our time as it was centuries ago in Israel.

Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments (Deuteronomy 7:9)
