John 12:48 - Rejection Of The Gospel Will Not Go Unpunished

KJV Bible - John 12: 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Amplified bible - 48 Anyone who rejects Me and persistently sets Me at naught, refusing to accept My teachings, has his judge [however]; for the [very] message that I have spoken will itself judge and convict him at the last day.

NLT - 48 But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken.

NIV - 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

This text reminds us on today that  God’s word has not changed. God has not changed His mind concerning His Word either. The message is still the same, yet many  are still rejecting the Gospel. 

This same question is laid before all of us on today. Who has tricked us into believing there is another Gospel?

Apostle Paul declared that the Gospel Jesus preached was the "Word" which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (He is Lord of all:) Acts 10:36.

Psalm 33:4 - For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.

Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.

Has someone tried to convince you that the Word of God is not true? What was your response?

Has someone tried to share the Gospel with you and you rejected it? If you have, you not only rejected God but His Son, Jesus Christ. We can not separate God from His Word.

God and His Word is one! When you reject the Gospel, you have rejected God Himself! John 12:44 - Jesus shouted to the crowds, "If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me.

John 10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 12: 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. This is what Jesus spoke about His Word and those who reject it. 

JOHN 5:24 - "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

Many in the world did not believe Jesus back then even after seeing the many miracles, including the raising of the dead. 

Evidence of Christ being risen from the dead was proven and witnessed by many. They saw the grave clothes, the angels, His many appearances by the women, Peter, the 12 disciples and many others during those 40 days he taught after His resurrection, yet many will refuse to believe.

John 8:51 "Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death."

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.

Will you receive the Word of God on today? Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God will live within you if you do.

REJECTION OF THE GOSPEL WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED. According to Christ, it will be judged.

God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for His Saving Grace and Power on this morning if you have accepted His "Word" as "Truth".

I love you all with the love of Christ.
