(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 22:42-45
(42) Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.
(43) He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
(44) The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
(45) If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
ENQUIRER MINDS WANTS TO KNOW!
Brethren, from creation of Adam and Eve, in the garden of Eden, when Eve engaged in conversation with the Serpent, to find out what will happen if she ate the fruit of the tree, which is in the middle of the garden, refer to Genesis 3; until present times; one characteristic of humanity, is to investigate, research truthfulness of matters, acquire information, knowledge, understanding, dwell on facts, to conclude matters in this world of darkness.
Many times, humanity engages in research, acquire information about others, just to turn around, utilise their findings to negate those individuals: this is an act of evil, let us refrain ourselves from other people private affairs, unless they open up doors of their hearts, pour unto us, even with that aspects, we are to be trustworthy to keep their secrets intact, within the four walls of our hearts: on the contrarily, it is also good to know more about the world we live in, people we interact with at all times; therefore, enquirer minds wants to know!
In the above text, Jesus Christ, enquiries about himself from the Pharisees, Saying, What think ye of Christ? Whose son is he?; gracefully, believers know the answer to his question, and will quickly answer him today, if he should ask them the same question, because he suffered, died, resurrected, ascended into heaven, seated at the right hand of our Father as an advocate for believers; however, Jesus might have asked them the question just to engage in a conversation, find out what they think about him: the Pharisees answered, "The Son of David."; correct answer! however, Jesus replied with another stringed question, saying, "How then doth David in spirit calls him Lord? David, called Jesus Lord, because in the spirits; Jesus, is truly Lord, the word, which was with our Father, before the foundation of the world, all things were made by him, without him was not anything made that was made. refer to John 1:1-5; that was many generations before David was born; therefore, in the spirits, Jesus is the Lord over David; because, he was in existence before David was created in the spirits, born on earth; however, on fleshly basis, David was born on earth before Jesus Christ was born, became the Father of Jesus Christ, through his lineage.
Many times, believers quote verses from the scriptures, one favorite verse is, "Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7): after, Jesus interrogated the Pharisees, they were not able to answer his question, what happened next? they dare not asked him any more questions, from that day onwards; therefore, at times, enemies disguise themselves, as friends, just to get closer, know our frame of minds, who we really are, to turn over our secrets to other adversaries, let us be careful not to trust wrong people, to pour the secrets of our hearts unto adversaries within world of darkness, rather deal with one another gently, wisely, always perceiving matters, before reactions.
Dearly beloved, it is one thing to inquire about people for good intentions; and it is another thing to enquire with negative intentions: no one can surely discern reasons why people behave negatively towards others; the fact is, people not in spirits, yield thought processes to dictates of infiltrations spirits; remember how the serpent deceived Eve and Adam in the garden of Eden, which brought upon iniquities of this world; he continues to infiltrate human thought processes the same ways; no soul is too strong for his pestering spirits, temptations, tricks, and deceptions; therefore, let us be in spirit always, pray every day, plead the sacred blood of Jesus upon our lives; have faith, belief in him, know for sure that there is nothing to worry about, fear, have anxieties for in this world, Jesus conquered the world of darkness; grant believers victory, therefore, let us walk in that victory, the enemy is a failure, defeated forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
