Truth and Consequences series
The Baddabing, The Baddaboom
The Italian catchphrase "Baddabing, Baddaboom" reflects a juxtaposition from one thing to the shock value of something else. In this instance the Truth is the "bing." Pilate a Roman Governor felt convicted to ask Jesus about His Kingship. The baddaboom is the confirmation the answer that Pilate received. Jesus not only confirmed His position but also proclaimed His birth and destiny. He also announced that He is a witness to Truth while yet being the Truth, He speaks and all those who are of Him hears His voice. The baddaboom is the constructed consequence as illustrated in John chapter 18; witnessing His betrayal by Judas, the verification by Pilate as King, and the denial of harden hearts of those who had condemned Jesus to die.
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples. So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons. Then Jesus, knowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” They answered him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am he.” Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. When Jesus said to them, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground. So he asked them again, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. So, if you seek me, let these men go...”
Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace, Isaiah 9:6); we come in a Spirit of Oneness to thank You for the "bing" of Truth in Jesus Christ. We with a oneness praise You for the revelation of Truth which comes as a constructed consequence. We declare and decree blessings upon those who have unwavering devotion to Your Love and will abide in Truth, so that the hearts of them what heart the voice of Jesus will come into the Kingdom of God with rejoicing. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
