God spoke to me about
Though it is all thoughout the gospels, God seemed to bring out to me how that the very ones who SHOULD have embraced the Messiah (Pharisees) show themselves to be the enemies. Jesus’ “natural” enemy (the one who would be threatened as a King appearing), however, seems to be the one who is in sympathy (Pilate). I don’t know if that is clear or not but it seems the tables are turned.
Sometimes I can relate to this situation. The very people who should embrace His church are the ones who seem to put up the most opposition. Odd. I get angry sometimes at these kinds of attitudes but need to take on Jesus’ attitude to see the effects of sin on ALL people.
