When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.'” Matthew 28:12-13
Jesus had died on the cross and was buried in a tomb. A group of soldiers were set around the entrance to the tomb to prevent any disturbance of the body. On the third day, Jesus arose from the dead and left the tomb. In order to cover it up the leaders had the soldiers lie about it, saying that they were sleeping and that the disciples had stolen the body.
There are hundreds of different news media outlets available on the television and online. Most of those news media outlets claim to report an unbiased news report. However, when there is a major event, it is very interesting how each source of news reports something a little different. Some of those news reports are false on purpose. They are trying to push a certain way of thinking or some greater agenda.
Telling a lie to change how things look or appear is nothing new. Hearing lies and believing them has been around since Adam and Eve. The devil and the world does not want people to believe that Jesus is alive and well today.
If Jesus is alive, it will mean that there is some accountability for their actions. People do not want to be accountable, so they make up lies.
Believers need to be well versed in what the Bible says and be in tune to what the Holy Spirit is saying. When the believer is aware of what God is saying, he will not be led astray with the lies the world is saying.
Currently if you tell people that there is only one way to God and you speak out against sin, you are classified as harmful and mean. This is a lie the world wants you to believe. It is actually showing greater love to tell people about Jesus and sin, than to let them die in their sins and be punished for eternity.
The world will continue to tell lies to pull you away from God. Stay in the Bible and filled with His Holy Spirit to guide you. Be aware of the false reports being said and stay in the truth.
I pray today that you will know what the Bible says; that you will hear what God’s Holy Spirit says; that God will reveal the false reports of this world to you; and that you will speak God’s truth in every situation.
