(Easter Octave Monday)
After the resurrection of Jesus, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened. The chief priests assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.’ And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present day. Mt_28:8-15
Interesting how a truth can be twisted. Today we call it “Fake News.” Also notice how all of the falsity centered around money. From the money Judas was paid to betray, all the way to the money the guards were paid to lie. Was there a tie? Unquestionably! Everything the chief priests and the elders were about was money. All to keep their own pockets full. Jesus was a threat to ‘their’ money, so He had to be eliminated. Money truly was their god.
So look at the abortion industry today. Look at the insurance industry. Look at the political system. Look at the media. Look at the sex industry – from the magazines to the whole issue of homosexuality, from porn on the internet to human trafficking for sex – ALL centered on that same god of money. Is there a tie? Unquestionably! Because every one of those industries has no qualms at denying that there is a true God, that Jesus WAS resurrected, and even that Jesus existed in the first place. And it’s all a lie!
Want to find the Lord, beloved? It’s really pretty easy. All we need to do is look for the money, look for the lies, look for the darkness. And what’s left, the Truth, the Love, the Light is the Lord you are looking for.
And His name is Jesus.
