Pharisees have earned a bad reputation because of what Jesus spoke of them while teaching while he was here on earth. But ... Who or what are pharisees?

The "Pharisee" has been around for a long time ... Even Jesus encountered these rascals and you will learn what He said and did in response to their attacks in this Study. Many Christians and even Religious leaders, judge other people by the clothes they wear, length of hair, which side of town they live on, the color of their skin, past experiences and mistakes they have made, particular beliefs, etc ...

It is very sad that these individuals, who consider themselves to be better than another of God's children (even though, they know in their hearts that they were also forgiven of their sins of the past, and received God's Grace and still sin) and that these people would find it necessary to judge another, in some vain attempt to appear to uplift themselves ...

The problem is ... Their view makes the Cross, of no effect.


PHARISEE BIBLE ENTITY
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE DEBATES

There are a few self proclaimed, Religious leaders, that have written to me at Christianity Oasis, suggesting that LAW prevails over God's Grace and say that I should preach LAW. These rascals demand that the burden on Christians is to be heavy, so that it makes it difficult to enter the gates of Heaven. These individuals have no compassion, understanding or love for others, in their heart. They have no concept of the love that God has for His children. Their desire for self edification, blinds them from the TRUTH.

My answer to these "wanna be" Religious leader's demands for me to teach LAW instead of
God's Grace is and will ALWAYS be ...

Not A Chance !!!


It was some self proclaimed Religious leaders, back in Jesus' day, that were constantly following Jesus around quoting LAW. His responses were so compelling that they ran away in fear and confusion. They became so afraid of losing their high places, that they devised a plan and had JESUS crucified ... They used LAWS to do it.
Again ... They claimed they were doing a God service.

John 16:2-3
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

THEY WERE WRONG !!!

But, God had a plan and His Will ... Was done.

Jesus said it best, when the self proclaimed Religious leaders of that time brought a woman before Jesus, to be judged for a sin that she had committed. They asked Jesus what should be done to her, knowing that the LAW said that she should be stoned to death ...

JESUS SAID ...

John 8:7
He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Pharisee throwing stones


PHARISEE BIBLE WARNING
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE FACTS

So, If you are one of the "holier than thou" teachers of LAW
and elect to judge the lost, which are potential Christians ... Beware.

Luke 18:10-14
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Lest you find yourself being judged, as you have judged these lost souls, and YOU losing God's Grace.

Matthew 18:23-35
Therefore is the kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my Heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.


PHARISEE BIBLE CONCERNS
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE TRUTH

This reminds me of a story ...

There was a man, that we will call Mr. Smith, who was sitting in Church with his wife. He had just dozed off, during the pastor's sermon, when he awoke to the sound of the collection plate coming around. He watched as the people next to him put in what they could afford, which was very little. When the collection plate reached him, he cleared his throat very loud, as to gain the attention of all those around him, and put a hundred dollar bill into the collection plate. When Church was over, he was edging his way through the crowd towards the front door and saw a statue of Jesus. He thought to himself, "he needs a haircut and a shave" ...

On the way to his favorite restaurant for brunch, he came upon a stoplight and saw one of THOSE people. You know, the ones with a sign that says "will work for food" ... This guy had long hair, a beard and very dirty, worn out clothing. As he came to a stop, Mr. Smith rolled up the electric windows in his new Cadillac and turned his head away from the poor looking man, who was now just outside his window, with his hand stretched out towards Mr. Smith. After what seemed like forever, to Mr. Smith, the stoplight turned green. Before Mr. Smith pulled off, he rolled down the window and yelled out, "Hey, ya bum ... get a job" and then sped off laughing.

A few years later, Mr. Smith died of cancer and ended up at God's Judgment seat. Jesus asked Mr. Smith why it was that he thought he was worthy to get into Heaven. Mr. Smith said proudly that he donated a hundred dollars every time his wife could drag him to Church. Jesus asked if that was the only reason and Mr. Smith said, "Yes, of course, I have paid for my way into Heaven" ...

Jesus looked at Mr. Smith and said ... "I disagree ... You failed to have compassion and love for your fellow man, when the opportunity arose. You are greedy and selfish and are not worthy to enter Heaven." Mr. Smith, convicted by Jesus' Words, turned and started walking away with his head hung low.

Then Jesus said ...

"And, by the way Mr. Smith ... I am no bum and I DO have a JOB."

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS ECHOED THROUGH THE BIBLE

Matthew 25:40
What you do unto the least of my brethren, you do unto Me ...

Be kind to strangers, it could be an Angel testing you ...


PHARISEE BIBLE DANGER
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE DISCUSSIONS

Hebrews 13:2
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares.

LAW VERSUS GOD'S GRACE

I have been told by many of the lost souls, that I encounter, that some Christians and even some Christian leaders, make it very difficult for those, who would become Christians, to do so because they elect to preach LAW to the potential Christian, instead of God's Grace by saying such things as "If you have ever done this or that, you are damned."

Matthew 23:13
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in
.

For example ... If a potential Christian had ever divorced their spouse, stolen anything, abused drugs, had sex out of marriage, smoked, cussed or anything else one can think of ... It somehow makes these self appointed, "holier than thou" teachers of law, feel that they have the right to find the potential Christian unworthy of God's Grace and to pass judgment. This causes the potential Christian to walk away and never consider becoming a Christian again.


PHARISEE BIBLE FEARS
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE ARGUMENTS

My friend ... If any of this has ever happened to you ...
Do not let it prevent you from receiving

GOD'S GRACE

Which is FREE to EVERYONE.
When you truly believe in Jesus, God forgives your past sins ... PERIOD !!!


HERE IS THE TRUTH ...

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the Grace of God. For if righteousness comes by the LAW ... Then Christ is dead in vain.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Now, there are many people that were Christians and have stopped believing in God, because something really bad happened. For example, Lost Love ... Perhaps they lose a friend or family member to divorce or death. They decide to blame God or say, if there is a God, why would He allow this to happen. I want you to know that I TRULY feel your pain, for I have lost that which was most dear to me, but I also know this ... Christians encounter tribulation and trials just like everybody else, and to stop believing in God, will not explain away the loss.

Sometimes these things are allowed to happen fora reason, that we do not understand
...


PHARISEE BIBLE CHARACTER
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE OUTCOME

Isaiah 57:1-2
The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that
the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

Reasons that we cannot even fathom. I have found that nine times out of ten, it was caused by negligence or a decision made on mankind's part. Understand this truth ... Mankind gets to make decisions that will affect each and every one of us. God allows mankind to make their own decisions because He does not want puppets. He allows us free will. The other one out of ten is what I call the test or trial factor.

(See the book of Job)

I have no idea why God allows certain things to happen, but regardless of why, it is His Will and we will know why it was allowed to happen, when it is time.

It all comes down to a choice. The choice is yours. Nobody can make it for you. You can either deny this truth and be cast into the Lake of Fire ... FOREVER.

OR

BELIEVE IN JESUS, WHO DIED FOR US

And live FOREVER in Heaven.

EITHER WAY ...

Forever is a LONNNNNNNG time.

Some people ask, but what if all this is just a bunch of superstition or fairy tales. I ask you this ... What if it is not?
Be wise ... CHOOSE JESUS.


Now I ask you ... What do you have to lose by just believing in Jesus? It sounds like a tiny investment for great returns.
He is the best eternal life insurance policy, money can't buy.

I want you to think about something. I have no Church for you to join, I do not want you to sell flowers for me at some airport and I will gain no fame by your decision to make the right choice. In fact, I most likely do not even know you and never will, at least on Earth. And yet, I take the time and effort to create this Christian Community for you to consider and ponder upon. The reason for this is ...

It is the TRUTH


PHARISEE BIBLE SUMMARY
JESUS AND THE PHARISEE IN THE BIBLE CONCLUSION

So those called to be Overseers of GOD'S sheep ...

Acts 20:28
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood.


ODE TO THE OVERSEER

As I look upon shepherds of sheep
From days gone by til now
It seems understanding some do not keep
And prefer the slaughter of cow.

Some choose to see the worst in others
And out comes their pride
But these are sisters and brothers
Not opportunity to chant and chide

Yes, some sheep are troubled and lost
This we all know to be true
But tell me, my friends ... At what cost
Did Jesus reach out for YOU

Beware of ever casting a stone
As judgment has a way
When the sheep within His pasture moan
Balance requires that someone pay

Man tends to judge in black or white
And maybe a touch of gray
But, GOD ... Created the rainbow bright
Limited not by man's carnal minded way

No one law can ever take the place
Of God knowing man's heart
That is why in Love, He chose Grace
And Mercy to give us a fresh start

Compassion, understanding and Love
These are the gifts one needs
Gentle and harmless as a dove
In all their words and deeds
