HE DOES NOT NEED ANY DEFENSE

Dearly Beloved,
HE DOES NOT NEED ANY DEFENSE
“‘Put your sword back in its place,’ Jesus said to him, ‘for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?’” (Matthew 26:52-54 NIV).
Recently I received a forwarded chain mail asking me to participate in a cause to protest to a popular online social network service to remove a website that is offensive to the personality of Jesus Christ from the social network’s online service. Hundreds of people had added their names to the mail as it was been forwarded to other people before it got to me. I wanted to add my name, but I remembered that there is no need to start the cause in the first instance because Jesus Christ does not need any kind of defense from anybody.
Adherents of many world religions, denominations, and causes are ready to defend the founders of such religions, denominations, or causes with the last drop of their blood. However, Jesus Christ or the God that the Christians serve does not need such defense. He is self-sufficient, unchangeable and unmovable. Nothing can subtract anything from His Being no matter the derogatory language used for Him. Attempts to defend Him may even be working against His wills!
When Jesus Christ was about to be arrested, one of His disciples tried to defend Him, but He cautioned him and made him realize that He is up to the task. At that particular time, it was part of the arrangement to fulfill the divine purpose of His coming to the world. In spite of the arrest, molestation, trial, crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ, He resurrected the third day. He was exalted to the highest place and given “the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11 NIV). No amount of derogatory language can reduce His sovereignty. People that are using foul languages against Him are just wasting their time.
Jesus Christ does not need any kind of defense. In spite of this, who He to you? How do you refer Him? He has come as the Savior of the world. He is presently defending those that believe in Him. He is coming back soon as the Judge of the whole world. Are you ready to face Him?
In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

Yes my Broda,i agreed 100% with what u said,u know some time..must christians tends to defend our Lord,forgetting that Hes complete by Himself cos Hes is God.Some other religions may defend the mistakes of they founders,but christians cannot defend christ,bcos he cannot do mistake.Whatsoever He does is how He wants it cos Hes perfect.So we cannot be fanatical to the extend of defending Him...Paul told us to avoid unnecessary talks.What i believe is this,whosoever that is grown up in christ jesus should not involve him or herself in any discussion that doesnt glorify the Lord,just ask the Lord to ve mercy on the person that is blespheming His name,cos he or she dosnt know what hes doing,simple...but to carry placard and protest,its sign of immaturity and we know the type of religion that practice that type of things but not christians.
