Jesus is the same yesterday, today and for ever. But He is doing different things.
Does this sentence using IS for His eternal nature, imply that He is always DOING the same?
What has been done, do not have to be repeated. Jesus is doing totally different things every day. He do not have to copy what He did 3.000 or 2.000 years ago.
If we do not understand this, we might get disappointed. Many even become bitter on God, and surrender their faith completely. Others get religious, and start to copy and repeat everything. They listened to false teachers of different kind, who deceive them. When they do not get what their pastor or priest promised them, they fall away.
Jesus has saved us. This is not something that He has to do all over again. His death on the cross can not be repeated, nor deleted. Nor his resurrection from the dead.
Do Jesus heal everybody today, as He did when he walked the Earth 2.000 years ago?
Some teachers say yes. If you believe right and enough, healing is equally available to us who have never seen Him, as for those who saw him, heard him and was physically torched by Him 2.000 years ago.
If you reflect on this kind of teachings, you will end up contradicting your self.
Such a “Jesus” must do what men tell Him today. Still everyone knows that the Messiah is no longer present on Earth in the flesh. Since He is not here, we do not belong here. Our eternal calling is to be with Him.
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Let me underline that Jesus heals today. There is not a single sickness that Jesus can not heal. But He might heal less, and rather take his people home to Heaven.
The Earth is a polluted and fallen place. Believers were aliens and strangers in this World 2.000 years ago. Today we are even more strangers, badly persecuted, and should completely reject the present rule by the children of the devil. Heaven is a better place. Still many chose to become friends with this World, and perish.
The full number of gentiles will soon will have been added to the Kingdom. That is surely underlining that Jesus can not be copied to do what He did before. Not only will Jesus heal less human beings than before. He also saves less pagans.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Yeshua (Jesus) have been doing different things in different seasons. Before Israel was re-birthed in 1948, Jesus was still the same. But from 1948 onwards He has been preoccupied teaching some lesson to all the enemies of the truth.
There are hundred of millions of them. Also inside claimed to be Churches. Divine judgment can come to any person whenever He desires.
Jesus do not only heal and bless. He has also promised that He will curse those who curse His work of redeeming Israel, and doing what He promised the Jewish patriarchs He would do.
Lukewarm people makes Jesus the Messiah sick. Are you one of them?
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Jesus is doing a lot of things today, that He did not do 80 years ago. But He is still the same. God the Son, who came in flesh. Today He sits on His throne in Heaven. He will return to Earth in flesh. He will not come back as the “Lamb of God”, but as the Lion of Judah.
If you are lukewarm, be happy if Jesus gives you are stern rebuke today. Then repent, praise Him and obey.
