  • Rev. Autrey on John 18:38
    Verses 38 40 "What is the truth? ' Pilate asked. Then he went out to the people and told them, 'He is not guilty of any crime. But you have a custom of asking me to release someone from prison each year at Passover. So if you want me to, I 'll release the King of the Jews. ' But they shouted back, 'No! Not this man, but Barabbas! ... " But Pilaste could have released Jesus, but he didn 't. And in his rebellion he made the Scriptures come true. Isiah 28 says, "This is what the Sovereign Lord says 'Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem. It is firm, a tested and precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be disappointed. ' " And Isaiah 8 14 says, "He will keep you safe. But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. " This is talking about the Lord Almighty as we can see in verse 13. This proves that Jesus is the Lord Almighty, and the stone that makes people stumble and fall. It was he, himself, who stood before Pilate that terrible day. And Pilate stumbled over all over him and fell to his destruction. And if we reject Jesus as our God we will fall too. People reject Jesus by placing another meanine on the word LORD. In their effort to reject his DIVINITY they make the word mean only a master or ruler in their lives. But Isiah 40 equated the word LORD to to word GOD. It specificially says, "Make a highway through the wilderness for our LORD. And make a road through the desert for our GOD. " This is what we see in most churches today. They are quick to call Jesus Lord or master, but they will not say that he is God. And in doing so, they fall as surely as Pilate fell that day. See, here if the point. Only God can save us. And if we say that Jesus is not God we have no salvation. Ask God to help upu understand!
