  •             Did You Hear What They Heard?
    (Part 2)
                  

    When the crowd at Pentecost (Acts 2) were pricked by the gospel; the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, they were moved to ask the question: “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” It’s difficult for an honest person to ponder what to do when he or she is wrong. Stubbornness may prevail for a while, but the conscience won’t allow sleep.  

    When they heard about Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, it included the birth of Jesus in the flesh, which denounces the teaching of Gnosticism and Docetism. In that time, it was taught that it only seemed as if He came in the flesh. His death, burial and resurrection would mean Jesus was God in the flesh and not a created angel as taught by the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other religious groups.
      

    It would also mean that the Kingdom has already come since Jesus was the fulfillment of the promise made to David by God. (that one from his lineage would sit on his throne). Jesus is not returning to build his kingdom on earth, for he is already reigning over it.
      

    So the question to ponder is: If you are a Christian did you hear what they heard and do what they did? If not, how can a person expect to be added by God to the Kingdom, not having heard what they heard and doing what they did?
