Here is another short take the left and the media quickly reached the conclusion that Donald Trump incited insurrection and should immediately be impeached from office. I want to read a few paragraphs from the gospel of Luke to show you how this false accusation against Christ led to his his murder his crucifixion. It says in Luke chapter 22 verse 66. This is when it was day, the council of elders of the people assembled both chief priests and scribes, and these are Jewish leaders, religious leaders, they let Christ a way to their council chamber saying if you are the Christ or the Messiah. Tell us but Jesus said to them if I tell you, you will not believe in. If I ask a question, you will not answer but from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God, and they all said so you are the son of God, and he said to them you say correctly that I am claiming to be the son of God, unambiguous, and then they said what further need. Do we have of testimony, for we have herded ourselves from his own mouth that we transfer then to Luke chapter 23 where it says then the entire assembly of them same chief priest religious leaders of the day set out and brought him before Pilate, who was the, the Roman governor of the area and they began to bring charges against Christ saying we found this man miss leading our nation and forbidding us to pay taxes to Caesar and saying that he himself is Christ the King.

There is the accusations, the false accusations. Now Pilate asked him saying so you are the king of the Jews, and he answered him and said it is as you say, but Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds. I find no grounds for charges in the case of this man, but they kept on insisting saying he is stirring up the people teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee. As far as this place. In other words, taking what Christ was doing and twisting it to make false and slanderous accusations against him.

Verse six now when Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean and when he learned that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Jesus to Herod since he also was in Jerusalem at that same time.

Now Herod was overjoyed when he saw Jesus, for he would wanted to see him for a long time because he had been hearing about him was hoping to see some sign performed by him, and he questioned him at some length but he offered him no answer at all. Now the chief priests and the scribes stood there vehemently charging him again, more slander, more false accusation verse 13 Luke chapter 23 now Pilate summoned to himself.

The chief priest, the rulers and the people and he said to them, you brought this man to me in the ground that he is inciting. While there is that word in the Bible inciting the people to revolt, and behold, after examining him before you. I have found no basis at all. In the case of this man for the charge of what you are bringing against him know Nora's Herod, for he sent him back to us and behold, nothing deserving death has been done by him. Therefore, I will punish them and release him here.

Pilate, having some degree of honesty saying years making false accusations against Jesus. I met a punishment release of that he was obligated to release to them, at least at the feast one prisoner verse 18, but they cried out all the get another false accusations are not being believed by Pilate, and so forth. Now they're gonna ramp it up and just scream louder but they cried out altogether saying away with this man and release to us Barabbas. He was one who had been thrown into prison for a revolt that took place in the city and for murder. That's Barabbas, but Pilate wanting to release Jesus address them again but they kept on crying out saying just in unison just outcry, crucify him, crucify him and he said to them, 1/3 time. Why what has this man done wrong. I have found in his case.

No grounds for a sentence of death. Therefore, I will punish him and release him but they were insistent with loud voices demanding that he be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. Verse 24 and so Pilate decided to have their demand to carrying out he gave in and gave up their voices prevailed the false accusations were swept aside and he gave in and he release the man for whom they were asking Barabbas who had been thrown into prison for a revolt and murder but he handed Jesus over to their will. Again, that's from Luke chapter 23 and you can see in this account right before and you know what happens next.

They they hauled them off Christ off the son of God, that the sinless one, the one who had created them. They hauled him off to crucify him their false accusations had their way, their hatred, their jealousy, their envy, the resent resentment the false accusations of slander. They made a great against Christ led to even the sinless son of God being crucified. I just want you to keep that in mind as as I make a comparison, the comparisons not going to be between Jesus Christ and Donald Trump is people because there's no comparison there that the comparison is how the wickedness of slander and false accusation which which the left is using right now and even some Christians are joining in to ruin Donald Trump and his supporters how there's a comparison between how slander and false accusation was used back then against Christ house just has slanderous and wicked and ruinous as it is foreseeing in our political world today.
