Joh 20:29  Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

No supernatural events have ever happened in our time that we can prove to be from God, and never will happen. Miracles that the bible says happened back in those bible days also cannot be proven to have ever happened. Life has been set up through evil so that it appears that God is not real.

And yet...Many have been given the gift of sight. Proof of this miracle is in the seeing. That's proof enough for me.☺

PS,, do you think that this high priest having lots of authority was a reason God chose
him to speak through?


I donít know Pamela.

Iíve been thinking about this since way before I decided to post it. I have no answers only questions as to why God used Caiaphas to prophecy. I have questions about prophecy itself in light of this part of Johns gospel.

I think about Balaams donkey as you mentioned, and I also think about one of the stories where Gideon was going to fight and he overheard one of the enemies talking about a dream he had that terrified him and another of the enemies was interpreting the dream correctly. So in scripture God uses all sorts of vessels to speak His truth. But in the case of Caiaphas itís different because Caiaphas did not mean what God meant when he spoke.

Caiaphas said something that was a deep and profound spiritual truth.. but he didnít mean it like that. He said it as a carnal statement. Yet itís recorded as a spiritual prophecy and a deep spiritual truth.

I keep thinking about your post!
  I don't think you can say that the high priest meant it as a carnal statement. I don't think he knew what he was saying at all. God used him.  Consider that this statement came down to us.  I don't think it's a leap of logic to say that these words of the high priest became known to the Jewish people. They recorded many many things.  And since Caiaphas  had the authority of high priest, his words were noteworthy. I can imagine that this was part of what the early Christians used to explain the Gospel to the Jewish people.

Thank you for your kind words Carl.  God has blessed all of us with this website that contains so much spiritual food to digest, and the least we can do is to support and encourage one another on this spiritual journey. Yes, we are family! :)

Congrats on your retirement Doug. It's a heck of an adjustment, even with hobbies. I actually retired before I had planned, to be with my sister before she passed. The single most profound experience of my life, and one I'll never regret.

My Mama is a women of many sayings, not that she remembers many of them now. She always told her children "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger". Truer words were never spoken. When I came out on the other side, now almost five months, I finally understood what it truly means to leave everything up to God...What a gift!

I think so. He was most concerned with his position and status of power, than he was of spiritual matters. No different than religious leaders of today. They will deny the truth right before their eyes, rather than risk loosing their positions of power.

John 8:44 you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Im posting from a cellphone...not easy.

You ask for my thoughts...
After reading my words I've had many doubts swirling around this pea brain of mine. Maybe that's why I finally decided to share this after all these years.

Subtle deception, wrapped in poweful emotions comes to mind. It is not a pleasant thought to entertain, but Im more about truth in these matters.
