Would you try to kill God too?

Luke 4:28-29 “When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff.” I bet you’ve never seen a church service like THIS before. Jesus Christ had the entire synagogue in an uproar because He spoke sharply and with authority. So much so, that after Jesus’ message, the synagogue tried to take Him to the edge of the town to throw Him off of a cliff! But it wasn’t Jesus’ time to die yet. only God Himself can lay down His life or take it up again, amen!? Jesus made reference to Naaman, a Syrian commander stricken with leprosy who was healed by Elijah on account of Naaman’s Hebrew slave-girl, who informed Naaman’s wife about Elijah as a prophet of God (2 Kings 5). Jesus also referred to the town of Zarephath (1 Kings 17:10), where a widow allowed Elijah to stay in her home for a while during the great famine, which lasted three years and six months. What was Jesus’ intention to referring to these two people from the Old Testament? He revealed that though the Jewish people were God’s chosen people, not all were circumcised of the heart as a chosen people. Therefore, those who Jesus spoke to in the synagogue were truly not seeking the LORD, rather they were sinners seeking stats, authority or comfort. How would you respond to a word like that in your church? Would you try to kill God if He told you that you were a sinner in need of saving? Heed this scripture! It speaks loudly in the church pews of today. God bless you!
