Our Lord condemned the Scribes and Pharisees because they allowed the “traditions of men” to take the place of the Word of God! They allowed their traditions to nullify their covenant with God. The Law was designed to be a “school master” to bring them to Christ, so that when he came they would recognize him, but because the truth was so clouded with man-made teachings, they failed to recognize their Messiah. We as Christians are in danger of the same catastrophe. Just as at Jesus’ first coming, all were in expectation, but lost out because the “Word of God” was not that important, now at the time of his “second coming”, all are in expectation, will you lose out?
