The Centurion

The 2020 election paralleled forces that operated at the time of Christ.

There was a Judas that betrayed. There were Pharisees that wanted to get rid of their competition. There were those who followed, but then ran at the last minute or denied knowing Jesus.

Without going too deep into the story, there was some that realized what had happened. That was the Centurion and those that were with him, presumably other soliders.

Matthew 27:54 Now the centurion and those who were with him watching Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were done, were terrified, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”

In this current season, again, it may be the soldiers who are able to acknowledge the truth, and in line with their commitment to defend against all enemies foreign and domestic, to do something about it.

Romans 10:9 that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart, one believes resulting in righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made resulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on him. 13 For, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
