He told the apostate Pharisees in strong words what he thought of them didn´t he? So yes, I follow the lamb and his actions. The enemies he was talking about were ROMANS who had no knowledge of Jesus. They didn´t even know what they were doing. They were just following orders. The Pharisees knew. He called them white washed graves and they prevent people from taking the truth. Sound familiar? It should. He is describing apostates from our day.
So in other words, he is describing the Jehovah's Witness leadership of today along with other legalistic religions that make the word of God null and void by their tradition.
