He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (John 1:10-11 KJV)
How did the people miss Jesus’ coming? Did the people expect His coming would like the presidential inauguration parade? By the way, President Obama used the coming of the Messianic theme for his inauguration parade, which it could lead to the stage of developing the New World Order. Many people in the Old Testament expected the coming of Messiah as the King of the world, but not as the baby in a manger. Even though Jesus will come as the King for this world in near future, He first arrived to this world as a Baby, so He can be related to us.
Throughout the first four books of the New Testament, we see that Jesus walked with His feet to do God’s work. There was no parade event on His birth and resurrected from dead. There was no Christmas celebration at the barn. We have misused Christmas and Easter so much and have forgotten the real historical facts of these holidays. These two holidays have nothing to do with Jesus and Christianity, but have to do with Pagan holidays. In Jeremiah 10, for example, we see that the Israelites used the tree and decoration to worship the one of pagan gods. That was where the Catholic churches adopted the ritual practice and brought it to Christian churches in the fourth-century AD.
Sadly, we don’t hear the basic gospel message of Jesus Christ in churches as often. We may hear about small portion of the gospel message at the church services, but the rest of the message maybe on the Christian living, prosperity, our civil rights, and etc. We have noticed that our current President has decided to change all President Bush’s laws, starting with the Civil Rights. Now, President Obama legalized that the people can have the right to have abortion and let the homosexual citizens can free express their rights publicly. We need to pray for our leaders to turn their hearts to Jesus Christ and abandon their ungodly decisions.
Jesus came to this world as a baby without receiving any worldly recognition award from the world. But when it would be the time for Him to return to the world, everybody in all four corners of the earth will recognize Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords. He will judge our nation, even if President Obama would still lead this nation and continue to legalize ungodly laws. This is why our economy system is so corrupted. We are following our own direction. We let ungodly leaders without repentant their sins to lead our nation, such as leaders from Bone and Skull Society (Satanism), Witchcraft, and Freemason.
Are you saved? Is your loved ones saved? If you aren’t sure where you’d spend eternality, I’d like to encourage you to make your decision today. God loves you and cares about you. He doesn’t like to see any of us to go to Hell. But He cannot make your decision for you. Paul said in Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
In KJV Life Application says regarding John 1:10-11, “Although Christ created the world, the people he created didn’t recognize him… Even the people chosen by God to prepare the rest of the Messiah rejected him…, although the entire Old Testament pointed to his coming.”
