Give Us Barabbas!
Jesus Faces Pilate(Mark 15:2-5; Luke 23:2-5; John 18:29-38)
11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.” 12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing.
13 Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.
Taking the Place of Barabbas(Mark 15:6-15; Luke 23:13-25; John 18:39,40)
15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. 16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. 17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” 18 For he knew that they had handed Him over because of envy.
20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?”
They said, “Barabbas!”
22 Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”
They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”
23 Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?”
But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.”
25 And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.”
26 Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.
7 And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion. 8 Then the multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them. 9 But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12 Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
13 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!” 14 Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”
18 And they all cried out at once, saying, “Away with this Man, and release to us Barabbas” — 19 who had been thrown into prison for a certain rebellion made in the city, and for murder.
Now before anyone starts saying that I think Cruz is JESUS, back off on that, I am simply setting up the correlation of one who is a righteous man of YAHUAH and one who is notorious and who serves himself and satan. I am calling out the Pharisee and the elders, the leaders of the Church who perceive themselves so righteous who have backed the one who is notorious, Donald Trump.
Just as JESUS was paraded through public condemnation by the Pharisee and the masses unto execution so have the media, and false prophets and idolatrous leaders of our day crucified Cruz. These leaders who call themselves righteous leaders have not protested any of the slander, gossip, lies and innuendo of Trump and his Super Pac, National Enquirer against Cruz. Rodney Howard Browne, Lance Wallnau, Jonathan Falwell, Michael Murdock, Jeremiah Johnson and many others have publicly justified and carnally prophesied that Trump is YAHUAH’s ‘wrecking ball.’ Trump has been lifted up as ‘the deliverer’ of the United States by these hypocrites who have totally embraced a man who by his own mouth has confessed that he has no need to repent or ask forgiveness.
Many of these Church leaders say “ Well I don’t like this or that about Cruz, there is something about him, I am supporting Trump, he is not part of the Establishment he will stop the NWO.” This is the same demonic spirit that prevailed when the people thought Barabbas and the rebellion he was part of would deliver them from the iron fist of the Romans. (As I stated in my last post, Trump is text book Jezebel spirit)
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Cruz who openly professes faith and devotion to JESUS has been falsely accused ferociously and maliciously slandered while these Christian leaders have stood by and justified the slanderer and his minions. They have been part of the breaking of the 9th Commandment, Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. These Christian leaders have publicly endorsed Trump who has a most devious past but most importantly has not repented nor has he perceived any need to. Therefore if not of YAHUAH, the only alternative is that he still serves satan. He cannot be trusted to do the things of YAHUAH when he knows not YAHUAH. He postures and panders to these leaders and to the people but when elected gives us no assurance he will carry through. Jethro said to Moses:
21 Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 22 And let them judge the people at all times.
Cruz is a ‘righteous man of YAHUAH’ who would have done that, he would have striven to restore moral order in this land, to eradicate many perverted policies of the Obamanation. The Pharisee and false prophets of today aroused the masses to condemn the righteous one and to set the notorious one as President placing their hopes and motives behind the wicked. There comes a day when just as the Roman centurion realized:
54 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of YAHUAH!”
So will we one day look back and say, “Ted Cruz was truthful, moral and passionate man of YAHUAH.
Repent for the Kingdom of YAHUAH draws nigh!
