Show your Power

Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set man against his father, and a daughter against her mother and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.

When Jesus died on the Cross, the two criminals to the left and to the right of Jesus, one rejected Him, the other asked Jesus to remember him. There are two kinds of people in the world, the ones who insult and reject Jesus and demand He show His power, the ones who, though they lived a life of sin, they recognize Jesus and repent. Just like the criminal, Jesus promises them Paradise, even though they are indeed nailed along with him, lawfully so.

To those who demand, God will indeed show His Power, but woe to you by whom it shall come should you still reject Him.
