Have They Found The Grave Of Jesus?

Have They Found The Grave of Jesus?
If you were Satan, and you knew this is the last generation, and you knew the signs are all there concerning the coming of the Messiah who will be your doom ...what would you do?

You might "inspire" a book to be written that would be a frontal attack on the mission and purpose of Jesus Christ. The Da Vinci Code.

You might "inspire" a woman to write a best-seller aimed at children, fostering witchcraft and all manner of Bible-forbidden occultism. The Harry Potter books.

And you would do all you can to discredit the person and claims of Jesus Christ.

You might cause a "find" of a family grave with names similar to the names of members of Jesus's family or his followers.

Why?

What harm can it do?

If you understood the mission and intent of Satan, you could answer that question.

The tell-tale signs of "the workings of Satan" are:
1. Attacks on the divinity of Jesus Christ.
2. Attacks on the fact of his virgin birth.
3. Attacks on the fact of his physical resurrection.

Every cult formed by the inspiration and workings of Satan will deny one or more of these three things.

Satan's primary aim is to discredit the Lord Jesus Christ.

Because of hatred. Satan hates Jesus Christ above all else.

If the grave found is the grave of Jesus Christ or a son of Jesus Christ, then He did not rise from the dead. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the central tenet of the Christian faith.

If the grave found is the grave of Jesus Christ, or a son of Jesus Christ, then He is a liar. Jesus spoke of his coming death and said he would rise again in three days. If the remains in that grave are his, then he did not rise from the dead.

"But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen.
And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is vain and your faith is also vain.
Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up if in fact the dead do not rise.
For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable."
1 Corinthians 15:13-19

Satan does not come with a banner stating, "Here I come, I'm Satan coming to destroy your faith." He comes as "an angel of light," to bring you "light" that will destroy your faith in the Son of God.

He comes to destroy the claims of Jesus Christ, to say he was just a good man, perhaps a prophet. He will attack you in any way he thinks will turn you away from that Name and the One bearing it.

Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God, who claimed to be the "I AM," the YHVH.
He was born of a virgin.
He was crucified in our place, taking upon himself the guilt of our sins.
He rose from the dead physically and multitudes saw him.
He ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives, in the sight of many, and that is where he will return.
He will return in the generation that sees the return of the Jewish people to Israel.

And .....he will do away with Satan.

"...the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
1 Corinthians 1:18

If that grave is the grave of Jesus, then the message of the Cross is foolishness.

That's why it matters.
