Tortured and beaten beyond reason, our Lord Jesus carried all the sins of the world upon his body to the cross. The soldiers slapped him, while mocking him as king of the Jews. The marks Jesus bore in his body were for the healing of our sickness which came from our sins. But no longer will our LORD JESUS be mocked by the evil one of this world. Jesus is coming back as the true and only King who will reign upon this earth and in heaven. His kingdom shall have no end. While many still mock his Holy name here in this earth, they will bow before Him in sorrow for all that they have said and done. Jesus knows his own, they will reverence Him for they know him intimately.
While mocking comes from our enemy who deceives all those walking around in his darkness, Our Holy Saviour gives light to truth and will deliver us from all evil. ‘Just to understand what mocking is I will insert the definition here from New Webster’s Dictionary And Roget’s Thesaurus (mock- to laugh at; to ridicule; to make a fool of; to defy; to mimic; substitute.) Another definition from Thompson Exhaustive Topical Bible (Mocking-treating with scorn, ridiculing, scoffing)
We as adults understand what it is like to be mocked hearing scornful comments which make us feel like we are nothing in someone else’s eyes. Jesus went through everything to understand what we face here on earth. There was only one way back to the Father and this was the fate Jesus had to face to die for us. Now Jesus is the true and living way back to God the Father, it is only by his blood applied to our hearts that we shall live with them forever. Cruel mocking spirits of evil torment those out in sin everyday, those who walk without understanding of who Jesus is to us. They come in different forms yet they all come from the same place which is satan’s lies and deception.
Those who walk after flesh while seeking to deceive others in the name of Jesus are mocking him. Those who say they know who Jesus is but refuse to allow him access to their hearts are mocking him. Look at how these soldiers treated Jesus in the bible, feel the intense pain of Jesus as he stood before them. Many of our children are treated the same way by their school mates. They are pressed into making decisions which they would not have made had they not been mocked by others. True and faithful Christians walk as close to God as they can, wanting all of the gifts which He has to offer unto us. But those of flesh walk after the god of this world, leaving behind the good news which others has shared with them. They would rather mock us, than to leave behind the sins of this world for one day.
God knows how a minister comes to give a message, He also knows if this minister truly walks with Him. Many times we hear a sermon that did not come from God, we must be very careful what we come into agreement with. Teaching ourselves how to hear from God will help keep us from agreeing with false teaching. I am a firm believer that God leads us to understand his word because He lives in us teaching us truth. But if we never walk in His Spirit then how can we know his truth? Mocking is a serious thing which comes against us, we must stand firm upon the solid foundation of God, knowing all things are in his hands. We must make sure our faith is based upon the true word of God, living as close to Him as we can. Therein seems a way which is right, but follows false religious ways. Seek truth from the Word of God and Jesus who is the Word.
The living word of God will teach us all things in which we need to follow Him. Leave behind sin, trust in the way of Jesus, follow every word spoken to us from God, so we never stray from Him. Pure truth can only come from God, walking in his Spirit delivers us from all sins. Those who teach any other way is mocking the word of God, they will stand in judgment for all their words spoken against God. False ways will not get us into heaven, neither will any other form of worship, only by allowing Jesus complete access to our hearts, filling our minds with the pure word of Truth then we can have a hope of being with Jesus forever.
I cringe to think of even hearing a mocking spirit come against my Lord Jesus, for I hold Jesus dearly close to my heart. Nothing can or will take his place as My LORD and SAVIOUR. Who else could take the sins of the world upon their body to bring deliverance to all nations? NO ONE ELSE, ONLY JESUS. I will never bow to another, only to Jesus will I bow and give reverence from the deepest part of my heart. Would anyone in their right minds want to mock a Saviour who brings them deliverance from sickness of heart called sins?
Why then are there so many who claim to know Jesus walk around mocking His Sweet Spirit? Why do they feel as though they know the word of God, yet bring messages filled with false truths? Really what have they to gain from walking in these deceptive ways? If I cannot understand something, the first place to go is to ask God, no man on earth will have the answer that I need. I would love to know all there is to know about God, I desire to know pure truth of his word, his love, his mercy and his grace. Nothing else will matter but Jesus when He comes back to gather us and take us home.

Isaiah 57:4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.
Lamentations 1:7 Jerusalem remembered in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that she had in the days of old, when her people fell into the hand of the enemy, and none did help her: the adversaries saw her, and did mock at her sabbaths.
Jude verse 17-21 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
The true Spirit of God will set us free from all delusions of sins which the enemy plants before us. Let us draw close to God filling our Spirit with His divine Truth letting nothing separate us from the true Spirit of Jesus’s Holy Ghost. Walk in faith to obtain the high calling wherein is the true Spirit of God given to all who seek him. Now let us draw near unto the Holy Spirit of God which dwells within us letting His Spirit teach us all things both great and small, knowing Him intimately. Be very careful not to mock the Holy Ghost in any way, nor agree with any false teachings. We must be found a holy people before the LORD to walk in His Spirit of Truth. Count your blessings in knowing that Jesus will deliver us from all things for He is able to carry us through.
Love and prayers to all who seek truth from God.
