Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. Matthew 28:11-15
I saw a great Tshirt that said “Noah was a conspiracy theorist, and then it rained” I love that shirt, and its true. Noah warned his wicked generation that the judgment of God was coming, but everyone scoffed at Noah and probably labeled him, as we know today as a “Conspiracy Theorist”
When people hear the word “Conspiracy Theory” they probably roll their eyes or laugh, however remember this world is controlled by Satan (1 John 5:19) and Satan want to keep everyone blinded (2 Corinthians 4:4) So how do we do this? Well you tell people the truth is false , and the false is truth. This is exactly Satan’s plan for the Resurrection of Christ, even today his conspiracy theories are told to keep from understanding who Jesus Christ is and what He accomplished
As we read earlier in the scriptures, the Roman guards witnessed the resurrected Christ and “fell like dead men” , it was no secret that Jesus Christ is Risen, so now the Romans and the religious leaders of Israel, needed to create some “Conspiracy Theories” so the people didn’t know they crucified The Messiah. Even religions today are still using these same “Conspiracy Theories, Judaism and Islam , claim the disciples “stole “ the body of Jesus, Islam even claims Jesus never died on the cross. This is why there is only One way to God through Jesus Christ, (John 14:6) All other religions are false and provide no salvation
The Apostle Paul records Jesus Christ appeared to over 500 men after the Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:6) of course Christ appeared to his disciples multiple times (John 21, 1 Cor. 15, Matthew 28, Luke 24) It was an established fact, Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, the tomb of Christ is Empty!
There are still many Conspiracy Theories today, how do we know what is true? The Word of God is truth, trust in the Bible, trust in the Holy Spirit to lead you, trust in Jesus Christ because The Lord is Risen Indeed, Amen!
