Matthew 28 – The Conspiracy Theory

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!

    This reminds me of a poster I exhibited at political party conference in 2004, which contained the following wording:

    World-famous “conspiracy theorists”

    President Theodore Roosevelt
    “Behind the ostensible Government sits enthroned an
    invisible Government, owing no allegiance and
    acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”
    An Autobiography, 1913

    President Woodrow Wilson
    “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field
    of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something.
    They know that there is a power somewhere so organized,
    so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so
    pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath
    when they speak in condemnation of it.”
    “The New Freedom”, 1913

    J. Edgar Hoover, ex-Director of the FBI
    “The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a
    a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.”

    The Apostle Paul
    “ … that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the
    man of lawlessness is revealed … the secret power of
    lawlessness is already at work … [there will be] all kinds of
    counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders … evil that deceives
    those who are perishing … [and] a powerful delusion …”
    2 Thessalonians 2

    The Lord Jesus Christ
    “Why are you trying to kill me?”
    “You are demon-possessed,” the crowd answered. “Who is
    trying to kill you?”
    John 7:19-20

    99

    (It turns out that the Lord’s conspiracy theory was right. They did kill him, although he rose again.)
