Have you ever noticed all the people around Jesus were struggling with who He was. The Scribes and Pharisees accused Jesus of blasphemy. The Jews were looking for a military leader/King that would remove the Roman empire from over them. They were not looking for someone that came from a poor family. At this point in Jesus’ ministry, even the disciples were not yet really sure who Jesus was, other than a great teacher who had the ability to do miracles. It was the demons who fell down before Him and cried out, “Thou art the Son of God.” They knew who He was. They had been in heaven as angels before they were cast out along with Satan. Yet, even with the demons proclaiming Jesus as the Son of God, the people still didn’t get it.
Is today much different? People still argue over who Jesus is. The world still rejects Him. It won’t always be so. Paul wrote to the church at Phillipi and said, “at the name of Jesus every knee will bow— of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth (Philippians 2:10). In John’s Revelation of things to come, he wrote:
there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
Salvation belongs to our God,
who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!
All the angels stood around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures, and they fell facedown before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honor
and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
There will come a day, when every tongue will proclaim Jesus as Lord and every knee will bow before Him. Denying who He is doesn’t change who He is. The question is, who is Jesus to you?
