An Offense to the World!

who is this jesus copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

The lost in the world don’t like the things of God, they despise and take offense at the name of Jesus Christ, and it has been written that they will.

1 Peter 2:7-8

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, 

“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone,”


“A stone of stumbling
And a rock of offense.” ‘

The world takes offense to Jesus Christ and what He represents.  This should not surprise us however we should be aware. 

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. I pray this note finds you well Gordon, Many peoples lives are being affected by the bad weather, I hope you are safe and doing well. Our blessed hope is not in this world, so isn’t it some kind of sin not to want Jesus to return but instead have a reprieve or a respite of time. I pray that if there is a reprieve before the rapture then it be used wisely for the gospel to be preached, the lost to be found, the captive to be freed, and the wayward to come home.
    Sincerely, Ethin

  2. Thanks for your comment Ethin!

    I am not looking forward to a reprieve, yet that does not mean we have not been given one. However, perhaps the good Lord is giving us a bit of time to reflect, maybe time to regroup as the body of Christ in order to repent and turn from our wicked ways! Perhaps it’s just one way that He is using to wake us all up from our slumber so that we may know that our time is short and that His return is near! Perhaps.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  3. I was reminded the other day about labor pains in a woman about to give birth. There is never been known a time when a woman starts into labor and gets a reprieve from so that she can give birth at a later date. If we are speaking about the worldwide general condition there is no such thing as a reprieve, There is no reprieve from terror, wars, famines, and destructive weather. So I have to ask myself what I am feeling a reprieve from what, and the only thing that I can come up with is a reprieve from the evil of the left wing politics in our country. Maybe more jobs and a better economy but will their be a reprieve from the signs that are bringing us closer to Christ , I don’t see any reprieve from biblical signs of the end times advancing.
    Sincerely ,
