It Will Come To Nought

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
John 12:9-11
Religion--man's pathetic attempt to please God with offerings of his own choosing.  It did not work in the beginning when Cain offered an unacceptable sacrifice that was the result of pride in his own labor.  It will not work today either.  Religion does not work.  It is the enemy of Christ and the apex of human pride.  Religion is what nailed Jesus to the cross, what led the religious leaders of Jesus' day to try and eradicate all evidence of His teaching and power, and why His church is suffering worldwide at the hands of men's lies.  It will never work because man cannot be his own savior.  There is only one acceptable means and He was prophesied about and shines above the masses of humanity as no other.  He is God, yet  He is man.  He is the bridge between heaven and earth--Jesus!  

The plan seemed to make sense.  Get rid of Jesus and this new sect will go away.  Get rid of Lazarus and people will forget about the miracles.  Kill His followers, destroy His teachings, hunt down every last Christian and we can prove that God is not among them.  Has it worked?  The harder the first century church was persecuted, the more it grew.  The greater the pressure from the next 10 Roman Emperors, the greater the outspread of truth.  Men and women (like Perpetua, a nursing mother, killed in March of 203 or Stephen, the first Christian martyr) stepped up to gladly give their lives as martyrs--witnesses-- since they had found the only acceptable means to the Father--Jesus Christ.  He who worked miracles, taught with authority, laid down his life as a sin offering, and who could not even be held down by death itself had done what they could not do by any means.  He did what religion could not do--give free access to heaven by grace through faith.  It took eternal blood to wash away the eternal crimes against the throne of He who inhabits eternity.  By the way, the plan to stop His church did not work!  It came to nought.

We see religion again waging an unholy war against the body of Christ.  Since it can't produce evidence of its viability, it kills to stay in existence.  It brainwashes and humiliates and relies on law at the point of a sword because it cannot reproduce the precious influence of the Holy Spirit.  It does not have a sinless Savior, but a man that robbed and marauded, and that had multiple wives with one being a mere child of 9.  It does not have the ability to propagate itself on the merits of God's love, acceptance, and forgiveness or a vicarious, atoning sacrifice, so it kills all who reject it with a strange dependence on hate, violence, and bloodshed.  It cannot explain an empty grave, so it fills multiple graves with those who have seen the living Savior lest revival and truth break out in the land it controls with rifle and bomb.  It can kill the body but cannot touch the soul.  Yet, it kills its own members and forever destroys the souls of its followers.  Without prophecy, power from above, miracles, signs and wonders, and that all important sin cleansing blood it does just as Cain did--kills the righteous due to jealousy.  Like Cain, its followers will be shocked to see that their efforts did not appease the righteousness of God.  It opposes God because the LORD will not accept its putrid sacrifices.  All men's attempts to reach Heaven by their own merit are nothing but the stinking work of corrupted flesh and an abomination to the very plan of redemption of God it Christ.

Religion is destined to failure.  There is coming a day soon when all that is false--whether it calls itself Christian or some other name--will be destroyed forever and forgotten.  Those who by faith accept the sacrifice that God himself ordained on their behalf will be forever blessed in the presence of their Great King.  That King is soon coming.  He will avenge Himself of those who will not repent and who molest His bride!

Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people,...And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
Acts 5:34a & 38-39
