Topic: PILATE AND HEROD RECONCILED BY CHRIST
📖1….”There were present at that season some that told Jesus of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.”
📖12….”And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.”
🔥When you hear or see two witches fighting someone, it is not because they love each other, but because they have a common enemy. Same with members of two different cults joining forces to annihilate a man of another cult; think not that they love themselves. They are only doing that to achieve their common aim. Herod and Pilate had been enemies because in time past, during a particular Jewish festival, Pilate had killed some Jews as recorded in Luke 13:1. To Herod, that action of Pilate was like mingling Galileans’ blood with their sacrifice.
🔥🔥But now that another Galilean, called Jesus, had become a thorn in Herod’s flesh, and knowing that the only man that can order his death was Pilate, Herod had to forgive Pilate, got reconciled with him (Luke 23:12), to enable their common enemy to be killed. What an indirect way for Christ’s life to preach the message of reconciliation to both Herod and Pilate! This is how the Cross, crosses together, people who have been at variance.
🔥🔥🔥Hence at the Cross, Jesus, who was considered as the worst enemy to the ruling class, became their unifying factor, and a means to bring the lost back to God. Same with you and me reading this BoLD right now. Know that, the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross, has reconciled us back to God. The moment you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you have come to yourself like the prodigal son in Luke 15:17. Our Father in heaven that has been expecting us, has also made our old bad past to pass away. As you hold on to Him by faith, you have become totally reconciled back to his abundant blessings as the condemned thief experienced in Luke 23:39-43.
🙏Heavenly Father, use the life I live in the faith, to bring peace between warring brethren in the Church, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, use the power of Christ’s Cross to unify our Church, for us to see ourselves as one in Christ, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father, for using the blood of Jesus, shed on the Cross, to pass away my bad past, in Jesus’ name.
