Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

13When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” 14So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” ~ Matthew 16:13-20NKJV

Jesus was passing through Caesarea Philippi with His disciples. Now, Caesarea Philippi was like the center of Baal worship. It lay at the foothills of Mount Hermon, a place of long history. From the very beginning, this area was known as the gateway to the spiritual world, and it seems like false-god worship and sexual immorality struggled with goodness and blessings there. In the time of Moses and Joshua, this area was known for Baal worship. At the time of the Greeks, this area was known for Pan worship. Apparently, the people did detestable things in their worship of Pan, like religious prostitution and even having sex with goats in Pan’s honor.

This is where Jesus and His disciples were passing through when Jesus asked His disciples who they say that He is. Today, we live in a world where any religion is more acceptable than Christianity. Sexual immorality is rampant, and the deep state is trying its best to legalize and normalize pedophilia. The signs of the time indicate that Jesus’ return is close at hand. Jesus is still asking, “Who do you say that I am?” You have to make a choice. You have to declare who Jesus is and make a stand in these last and final days before His coming. Because it’s at His coming that free choice is removed and judgment is poured out.

Dear LORD, please give me the strength, confidence, and desire to serve you with all that I am. Please give me a new heart and renew a right spirit within me. Help me to make a stand for You, even if no one else will. Help me to declare who You are with the same confidence Peter did. Give me the strength to stand for righteousness and give me a Spirit of Discernment that I might rightly discern Truth and error. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
