FOR THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS IS FOOLISHNESS TO
THOSE WHO ARE PERISHING BUT TO US WHO ARE BEING SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD ... 1
cross relates to death, the jews thought they may have a close relationship with
God/Yah through signs and wonders. The greeks solution was by the way of knowledge.. none
of it worked or can ever work. There are millions of poor souls in the earth today going
through the motions and the potions trying to get closer to the God they never were
Death is not the end for any of us .. whether saved or damned. Death is the beginning of
the new life for all ,some it will be hell and some it shall be heaven... pick up your
cross, command or option???
The message of the cross has been looked at through only one eye by many church goers for
many decades now. The message of the cross tells of the righteous one who died for the
unrighteous but it doesn't end there.
It also tells of those who by faith now live their lives for Him/the righteous who died
for them. This in turn tells of our cross which all true christians carry. This cross they
carry, demands that the cross carrier love the one who died for them more than their wife,
husband, children, titles, professions, money and friends and even their own flesh.... Matthew
This is hard to grasp for the intelligent or the rich or the flesh loving creatures. This
sounds foolish or absurd, meaning contrary to reason.
Men and women alike from day dot, have always had a liken for the one sided coin,
it is still in today's world .. rife among the youth of Australia. It is a case
of tell me my rights and not my responsibilities and we'll think you are cool. However,
the preaching of the cross is total foolishness, hence church leaders have erased it from
the agenda and every free spirit in hell has invaded pulpits, ministries and church
structures, even missions.. 1 Peter 4:1.
The holy bible talks about Jesus the Christ making .. a way .. for the lost to be
saved. Nowhere will you find in the new testament where God said He was going to walk your
walk for you. He said to pick up your cross but we only ever hear that He had a cross.
Scripture tells us Jesus will help us, guide us, pray for us, strengthen us, bless us,
comfort us and chasten us but nowhere do we find that He will walk your walk for you.
People in the world today usually go for the majorities counsel but I tell you its wrong.
There is one who shall give you the answer to your question every time. He is Jesus ..
they call Him counsellor. He who keeps his life shall lose it for eternity. He who loves
someone or something else more than Jesus will no doubt perish ... Colossians 1:18 *
The preaching of the cross, the full counsel about the cross including its demands, is it
heard in the assemblies today? If you love your neighbour as yourself tell them of the
demands of the cross, least God Almighty judge you for suppressing the truth .. 2
Peter 2:1-3 * Romans 1:18.
