By typing this I am hearing it better.
Perhaps a good idea to delve into the mind of Christ is to type out what he has said.
When the ruling authorities came to him to trap him in his words I see he posed a question back to them which they would not answer. The Messiah was teaching us how to deal with the criminal cabal called government known as the scribes and the chief priests and the elders. And in verse twenty seven when they come to him to trap him the Messiah turns the tables on them. If the criminal rulers are posed the proper Scriptural question, then they have no leg to stand on to attack the believer and follower of the words of the Messiah.
From Mark chapter eleven starting at verse twelve:
And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
and seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
And Jesus asnwered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of htee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
And they come to Jerusalem: ad Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
And he taught , saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall b ecalled aof all nations the house of prayer? But ye have made it a den of thieves.
And the scribes and chief priests heart it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
And when even was come, he went out of the city. And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
(Starting at verse twenty one)
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall n ot doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What htings soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
But if ye do not forgive neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? And who gave thee this authority to tdo these things?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will al so ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authroity I do these things?
The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? Answer me.
And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; th will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
But if we shall say , Of men: they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
And they ans wered and said unto Jesus We cannot tell. And Jesus ansering sasith unto them, Neither do I t ell you by what authority I do these things
From Mark chapter twelve vesr thriteen forward we have the story ot the question of taxes.
And they send unto h im certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
And when there were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is is lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he , knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
And Jesus answering sai9 unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
this is the same thing going on today when a police officer asks a man for identification who is obeying God and keeping God’s commandments and keeping himself from the world.
This is what is happening> The trap is always being set by the wicked… The wicked will fall by the wickedness of their own inventions. We have been warned. Messiah has already exposed the criminals for us. All we have to do is follow the example that he set for us. He gave us an example of how to answer the judge in the black robe who may have been bribed by the other party. The Judge, a man that dresses up in a black dress where as God has told us that it is an abomination for a man to wear that which pertaineth to a woman.
Black skirts are for women, not for men. So unless the “judge” is a woman which is an abomination in and of itself, he should not be wearing a black dress.
The entire system is an abomination. The legal system is a criminal cabal according to the legal system described in the Scripture. The best liar wins in mans system. We are told that all men are liars. Let God be true though every man be found a liar.
Continuing from Mark chapter thirteen staring at verse nine:
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall del9ver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
But then they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
It will be the Holy Ghost that speaks though the man when the cabal comes to call and ask questions. As men and women obeying God and keeping the commandments of God we have a calling, a duty to obey which the criminals in office and in power do not have. Our calling is higher and comes from the source of life itself which is God Almighty, Creator of the Universe.
That is all for now.
