Knowing History – Events of the Past
First and foremost, this is the most important history of all. The entire Bible is about Jesus, and to know more about Jesus and His Gospel, we should know how this history started and if was not for Jesus Christ there would be no history. In order to understand it all, we must see how important history is.
It is high time to come of our cocoon and face the facts as to the lies that Satan has used others to put on us and kept us in bondage. To any of you who feel like you are low on the totem pole, remember this, that’s the world’s way of thinking.
As born-again believers we should be beyond having that kind of mindset. But I want to tell you that is nothing new under the sun. The pharisees (Jews) thought they were better than others. Then the Gentiles that became born-again thought they were better than the Jews. Not only that, but the professing church also, they are not saved, still look down on the Jews, and Lord help when it comes to other people of color.
This is just a list of the more well known people who were Jesus’ ancestry line of 42 generations, such as Judah, Rahab, Ruth, David, and Solomon.
Why do you think was so? To encourage and to keep us humble; it is by God’s grace (1 Corinthians 15:10).
Since I want to continue sharing my weekend messages and reels pertaining to various African American Historical places, I plan to resume the messages about some people from Jesus’ ancestry line.
The bottom line is this, have you checked to see what you have done and may still be doing? Don't be like the hypocrites, check yourself. Don't forget that Jesus came to save sinners; nobody was righteous. As it is written: There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is no one who does good, no, not one (Romans 3:10-12).
Somebody must have forgotten that it is - But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me (1 Corinthians 15:10).
Ps. Please don’t forget how important history of any kind is, especially events pertaining to Jesus Christ.
