Great Faith of 38 years

After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of invalid folk — blind, halt, withered — waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool and troubled the water. Whosoever then first stepped in, after the troubling of the water, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there who had an infirmity for thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been in that state a long time, He said unto him, “Wilt thou be made whole?”

7 The infirm man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.”

8 Jesus said unto him, “ Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked. – John 5:1-9

Moral: The man who was disabled for 38 years was healed by the words of Jesus Christ. That man was a most blessed man, because God Himself came and healed. Compared to others, they were healed by the troubled water of angel.
There is a great faith, we can learn from this man, he patiently waited for 38 years to receive healing. Our situation may be like that man, many years we would have prayed for certain things, but God would have delayed the answer. But soon Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself will come and deliver us from all our problems. Psa 91:15.
Let us not give up our hope, Let God give us Grace to continue in our prayer life.

God bears you!


“And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isa 46:4

This is a very beautiful promise of our Lord Jesus. He have promised

1.He will be our God even at our old age- means He will lead You until end.

2.God will carry you even at your old age (grey hairs)- means at old age  spiritually God will enable us to live a holy life pleasing God.

3.God Bear’s you– there are many meaning, in one sense as a mother bears a baby for nine months,God will take care of our all needs, we need ask for anything, God himself will provide what we want.

4. God delivers you–  two meanings 1.delivering us from all trouble’s.   2.final deliverance from this world- rapture.

Power in the “shadow”

 “insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. 

There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks and those who were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were healed, every one.” Acts 5:15-16

As Jesus promised “he who believes in me will do Greater things than me” was fulfilled in  Peter’s life. The very shadow of peter healed many sick people. Interesting thing is, Apostle Peter’s shadow could heal sick. We may be a unworthy vessel to proclaim God’s word, but God will make us a Worthy vessel , Bless us and use us a blessing to others. Let God give us grace to make us honourable vessel.

Get ready… 

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” – Rev 22:12

We keep on postponing our works to tomorrow, but our Jesus Say’s I come quickly.  Even though 2017 years over, but still He says ” I come quickly”. One thing which makes us to realise is all the prophecies regarding second coming  of Jesus Christ is being fulfilled. 

One thing I use to wonder why Jesus is not yet come ? Ans: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  Our Jesus wants all the people of world to get saved and inherit eternal life. Since there may be places where Gospel have not reached, saved people are not in a perfected state in which God expects  , Jesus Christ coming is delayed.. Let God give us Grace to be like him to be caught up in His coming… Maranatha..

Are you greedy for money ?

“And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” Luke 12:15

Jesus Christ: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’
“So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
Do Not Worry
Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?
“And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.
 
 
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – (Nkjv Luke 12:16-34)
Jesus Christ spoke this when a man came to Him to divide the property with his brother.
But Jesus didn’t go and divide. Jesus said above parable so that the man may understand that life is more important than money. We must be more concerned whether we will go to heaven or not instead of worrying about daily need. God who feeds all animals and birds will provide all our needs. When we seek His kingdom and His righteousness then God will give earthly and heavenly blessing.

If our heart is filled with Lord Jesus then we will fly away in His coming.. Maranatha.
