The Christmas plan
Acts 23:29 “I found that the accusation had to do with questions about their law, but there was no charge against him that deserved death or imprisonment.”
The Commander recounts the events of Paul before the Sanhedrin. Originally the charge was that Paul had taken a Gentile into the holy place within the Temple. The punishment for such an action was death. But this was never mentioned at the Sanhedrin.
Paul was being attacked on trumped-up charges and on no charges at all.
But he was in the plan of God.
Jesus was born to die. That was the plan. He came and offended the religious. They brought false charges and he was put on the cross.
Isaiah 53: 2-9
But it was the plan of God.
So friends it doesn’t matter what the charges are or even if they are mentioned but they just stir up a disturbance against you. One of the major themes of Christmas is that even when man does his worst, God is doing His plan. His plan is always for your best.
