During inter testament period, many claimed and professing to be godly and involved in all godly activities like Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes and Zealots, these are Jews sects. They knew the Hebrew Scriptures very well and others did not have chance to read Hebrew. Aramaic and Greek were the spoken language, only scribes can read and they taught in the synagogue and involved in all godly activities.
When Jesus Christ came who is real Godly man and He booted them out. Whatever Jesus did and spoke, Pharisees could find some accusation and they thought we are the godliest people on the earth. Jesus said about them in Matthew 23: 27, “Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.” They claimed to be most holy people on earth but they were not.
Since we are in the last days, we people of God should know what is real Godliness and how Godly man look like. If you are looking and longing for what is real Godliness, then you have to go through Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and learn from Jesus life. Jesus is the only real Godly man and we are called to be like Him.
Today also, many claim and look like godly and their speech, acts are so seems but they are not, if you compare their lives with Christ Nature they are not. I want to continue to talk on this subject so that we may know how Godly man look like and we are going to learn from Our Lord Jesus Christ. Because the Mystery of Godliness has revealed in Jesus Christ alone and He is the real Godly man and those who claim to be Godly should look like Jesus Christ. Jesus was 100% God and also He was 100% man for you and me so that we can learn lesson from and be like Him.
1. The real Godly man should have always burden for the lost
What does that mean? It means, having the burden for others and bringing people to Christ. Jesus had always and still has the same heart. Jesus always letting people to know who He is and He had great compassion toward the lost. Matthew 9: 35 -38, Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
Having the burden for the others is one of the primary characters of Godliness. If the person is doing anything without burden, it is all self seeking, because the Message from God comes out of burden. Go through all the OT prophets, they all spoke Gods word with burden even some suffer for that.
Do you cry, is your heart waxed when you see people and young people destroy without knowledge of Christ? The real Godly men carry the burden always, no matter wherever he goes.
Pharisees thought they are most holy people on earth and all others, Gentiles were only created for fuel for hell. Here comes Jesus break all of their thought and destroyed all what they believed and doing. Jesus was eating with sinners, touching the lepers, helping others in Sabbath and He did all against what they believed to be godly. You know why, for Jesus Others are always before His eyes…
