Was Jesus/Yeshua Politically Correct?

10 Jun

Political correctness  is defined from Merriam-Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary as agreeing with the idea that people should be careful to not use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people.  I dare say the key word here is offense. No individual or group is to be offended in the Political Correctness world. So best not to offend anyone’s  ideas, policies,  behaviour, nor their gender, programmed sexual orientation, or race, culture, disability, age or religious beliefs. This appear it would include not voicing your opinion of political candidates or their policies either.

However, the Lord Jesus/Yeshua openly challenged the Jewish government, calling the leaders white washed tombstones and vipers and fools. He even attacked King Herod and called him a fox which must mean he was referring to Herod as a smelly little animal who hides in a hole in the ground and kills helpless chickens.

Luke 13:31,” The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee. 32And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.”

I think maybe its time we get back to basic here and redefine our ideas of who the Lord Jesus/Yeshua is and find out what exactly what we are commanded to do according to the  Word of God. As I study the Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural and the Holy Spirit teaches me, I’ve had to redefine some ideas I had about who Jesus Christ of Nazareth truly is. Rather I have no doubts He is who He said He is. He even called Himself Lord which was a title reserved only for Caesar.  In the Roman Empire at this time in history people were forced to say “Caesar is Lord” which was the embodiment of the Roman Empire in one man, the Emperor Caesar. So it was really Caesar worship and it was  compulsory throughout the Roman Empire. Every one had to go to an Empire shrine and burn a pinch of incense to the image of the Emperor and say, “Caesar is Lord.” as a test of loyalty to the Roman Empire. Then Jesus Christ of Nazareth comes along and quoted Psalm 110:1,” The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.” Let me share this with you from  Matthew 22:41,” While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,  42Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. 43He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,  44The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?  45If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?  46And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.”

All the religious leaders were not able to challenge  Jesus/Yeshua when He asked them to explain this question he asked. In other words Jesus being the Christ asked them, “What do you think about the Messiah fellows, all you great scholars of the Law and Prophets, come on now whose son is he?” and they answer Jesus, “The son of David.” Then Jesus asked them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit calls him Lord?  If then David calls him Lord, how can he be his son? Those scholarly fellows must had that “Oops” look on their faces. Like Deer in the headlights. Like politicians caught red handed in lies.

The correct answers of course must be that David called the Messiah “Lord” because the Messiah was more than just one of his physical descendants; He is the divine Messiah—“Jesus is Lord.” Praise God!

As you recall when baby Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the angels proclaimed that it was “Christ who is the Lord” who was born in Luke 2:11,” For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

Now I would not say our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth was a pacifist as so many modern churches would have the people seem to think he was. He did not proclaim liberal ideas like socialism or communism did he? He did not even stay out of political and governmental issues like you think a good Jewish Rabbi should as we see here.

We read in Matthew 10:34,” Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

We read in  John 2: 15,”And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;”

Does that sound like a pacifist to any one? This happened right before the Passover as Jesus/Yeshua had to get rid of any and all unclean leaven from his Fathers house.

In John 2:16,” And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.”

If Jesus/Yeshua would have waited and been  born in our time, I venture to guess he would soon be on most governments watch lists as a long haired breaded radical extremist. Then the big pharmaceutical lobbyist probably be calling for new laws to stop all the miracle healing happening.  In the 1900’s, people like John Alexander Dowie, and John G Lake were taken to court after being accused of practicing medicine without a license by those who were jealous or confused how the Lord used them  in healing miracles

Not to worry Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow ( Hebrew 13:8) and his miracles continue. (See John 14:12)

Our Lord Jesus/Yeshua was not some emaciated anorexic person as so many artist have protrayed him to be, rather he probably looked more like some extremely healthy strong blue collar carpenter type.  It must take some strength to run through the Temple cracking a whip and overthrowing everyone’s money table there. I assure you he did not seem like gentle Jesus/Yeshua at this moment nor shall he when he returns in near future. He was not bowing down to anyone then, nor will he ever. Romans 14:11,” For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”

In the meantime we must carry on and share the Gospel, heal the sick and cast out demons in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua. Stay in faith and keep your joy! The Lord Jesus is returning in near future so keep looking up! Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
