The Unattractive Jesus

Most Christian believers
worship a false image of Jesus Christ. There was nothing attractive
about Jesus Christ. Neither His appearance, nor His words were
attractive to men. We read in Isaiah 53:2 about Jesus Christ:"For
he grew up before Him like a tender shoot and like a root out of
parched ground. For He has no stately form or Majesty that we should
look upon Him nor, appearance that we should be attracted to Him. He
was despised and forsaken my men, a man of sorrows and acquainted
with grief, and like one from whom men hide their face." Is that
the Jesus that you are worshiping? Is that the Jesus that you know?
Unattractive, despised by men, or do you worship a beautiful picture
of Jesus Christ?
The words of Jesus Christ
are repulsive to this world they are repulsive to most Christian
believers, because they worship a different Jesus, not the Jesus of
the Bible. Most Christians will tell you that it is not possible to
obey the words of Jesus Christ. They just believe in Jesus, a
different Jesus. They do not know the real Jesus. The real Jesus did
not promise us a good time, He did not promise us an easy life. The
real Jesus was rejected. At one time even His own disciples wanted to
leave Him, when He said to them:"If you do not eat my body and
drink my blood you have no part in me," and many people left
Him, and He said to His own disciples:"Do you not also want to
leave me?" And Peter said to Him:"Lord where will we go?
You have the words of eternal life."
The world was offended of
Jesus and is still offended of Jesus Christ. The world will not
follow Jesus. Most Christians will not follow Jesus. They just
believe in a Jesus that does not exist. The real Jesus Christ is not
attractive. The words of Jesus Christ are not pleasant, but they are
the words of life, for those who obey them. But those who disobey and
disregard the words of Jesus, will perish. Have you found the
unattractive Jesus, the repulsive Jesus? Are you following Him or do
you believe in an image of Jesus, a pleasant image. There's nothing
pleasant about following Jesus Christ, but those who endure with Him
until the very end, they will win the prize of eternal life, those
who stay with Him, those who are rejected with Him those who suffer
with Him, they are worthy of entering His kingdom.
Are you following the real
May Jesus bless you.
