TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 4/15/2023
Hebrews 4:15 – For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
We’ve all heard the question, “What would Jesus do?” because Jesus faced the same temptations we face. He was aware of crimes against the Jews, yet He didn’t harbor hatred. He knew about corruption in the temple, yet He didn’t entertain bitterness. Jesus was aware the very people He loved and healed would soon turn against Him. Still, His mind was full of compassion toward them. He didn’t sin in action, but He also didn’t sin in thought.
Declaration: I will think what Jesus thinks and I choose not to sin in word or deed.
WARRIORS DIG SCARS
Jesus’ resurrected body could look like anything. He could be any race or every race. He could be tall or short. He could look like anything he wanted, but know this. Whatever he looks like, he keeps his scars.
“But Pastor Troy, Jesus is the son of God. He’s perfect. Doesn’t that mean he doesn’t have any scars?”
No. That means you and I don’t have any scars, but Jesus keeps his. You see, King Jesus is a warrior. He’s not a dad-gum hippy. He’s the original bad motor scooter who took on hell with a water pistol. When he walks into a room, all of heaven takes notice:
Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah – Psalms 24:9-10
The Word calls him the Captain of the Lord’s Armies, or the “Heavenly Host.” They are some supernatural bad cats, and Jesus is the baddest cat of them all. Warriors dig scars. They are the spoils of war, proof of combat. Warriors are proud of them because they tell a story.
What story do Jesus’ scars tell? Yours. Mine. It’s crazy cool.
Not only does he keep his scars because he’s proud of them, he keeps those scars so nobody can ever say he did not give his life to redeem us. The devil’s got no ground to stand on. The scars are proof. Our doubts are erased the minute Jesus holds out those nail-scarred hands. Just ask him. He’ll be glad to show you.
