Pastor Caspar's Commentaries - The Lord Jesus/Yeshua Was Not A Pacifist

Now I would not say our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth was a pacifist as so many modern day seeker friendly type churches would have the people seem to think he was. He did not proclaim liberal ideas like socialism or communism did He? He did not even stay out of political and governmental issues like you think a good Jewish Rabbi should as we see here. 

I fact Jesus actually said in Matthew 10:34," Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."
In John 2:15,"And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;"

Does that sound like a pacifist to any one? Keeping in mind this was right before the Passover and Jesus had to get rid of any and all unclean leaven from His Father's house.

We read in John 2:16,"And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up." 

If the Lord Jesus/Yeshua would have waited and been first born in our time, I venture to guess he would soon be on most governments watch lists as a long haired breaded radical extremist!

Our Lord Jesus was not some emaciated anorexic person, He probably looked like some healthy strong Blue Collar Carpenter. It must take some strength to run threw the Temple cracking that whip and over throwing everyone's money table, which he twice. At the beginning on his ministry and again just before he went to the cross. I assure you He did not seem like gentle Jesus at this moment. He was not bowing down to anyone, and He never will. We shall all bow down to Him! Romans 14:11," For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."

Jesus Christ of Nazareth often used parables to teach. For example we read in Matthew 25:14,"For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money. 
19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 
27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the ex 
changers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

Does that sound like our Lord is promoting capitalism or socialism here? Wake up nation! 

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27," My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:" Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Because "All", things are possible with God! I pray the Lord's supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
