The Redeemer Divine!

 “He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. Psalm 22:8

Such blasphemy was done
On that dreadful day!
They were blinded and cruel
In the words they did say!

If Jehovah is your Father
Then let Him come now.
Let Him send His angels
Then we will bow!

Where is this power
That you spoke of?
Where is this strength,
You claimed from above?

Has it left you now,
In your time of need?
Did your Father forget,
You were of His seed?

Then they were bewildered,
By the last words He spoke!
Saying, “Father forgive them”
They must have thought,
He misspoke!

But no He didn’t
This Savior of mine!
Always loving and forgiving,
The Redeemer Divine!

The sad fact is the same blasphemy continues to this day.  People have never stopped speaking lies about Jesus.  Laughing at Him, mocking the things He taught and using His name in vain!

You see it everywhere.  In conversation between people, in music, radio, television and in print!  You see it in the news, in the books we read and the movies we watch! 

How heartbreaking it must be for Jesus to see His own disciples allowing their flesh to accept such filth instead of refusing to be apart of it!

And the worst place of all it is seen is in the church!  Oh I know I’m not going to make many friends by this statement but the truth is the truth and sometimes it can look very ugly. 

There are many false prophets that fill our pulpits!  “Wolves they are in sheep’s clothing” “Clouds that carry no rain” “Whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

These agents of the devil tickling the ears of the weak that have not established themselves in the Word of God!  They mock the very truth and draw many to their false teachings that mock the Living LORD!  

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1-2
