Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin John 19:11
God is always in control and always on the throne. Even in our darkest hours, when the world seems to be spinning in complete chaos, God has the final say.
While Pilate was giving the execution orders to Jesus, he thought that he (Pilate) was in complete control. Pilate thought there was no authority higher than his. Even though Pilate could find no fault with Jesus, he lived to please other people, and demonstrate his power and authority.
However what Pilate or anyone else doesn’t realize is Jesus willing laid down his life for the sins of the world (John 10:18) Jesus willingly allowed himself to be tortured and killed to pay the ransom for our sins. In truth Pilate has no power, hes just demonstrating the evil Satan has laid into our hearts.
What Pilate and the rest of the world doesn’t realize, through there abuse of power, they condemn themselves. As Jesus said “”Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Gehenna) (Matthew 10:28)
Don’t live your life in fear, God is in complete control, he holds your future and victory in Jesus Name Amen!
