Jesus Is The Resurrection

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, John 11:25

At this moment life seemed hopeless for Lazarus family; he had been dead for over four days already. A whirlwind of emotions had been going on , Martha was angry with Jesus, if he had only been here sooner, she said. Jesus was overcome with emotion,  he wept as he saw Lazarus motionless body and the mourning of his family.

and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this? John 11:26

But Jesus said anyone who believes in him will never die, he was about to perform a miracle that nobody could dispute who Jesus really is. Before Jesus arrived he told his disciples that this sickeness would not be the end of Lazarus (John 11:4) His disciples at the time didn’t know Lazarus was already dead, so they didn’t understand what Jesus was prophesying at that time.

Jesus asked Martha “Do you believe this?” Meaning do you believe Jesus is God in the flesh, the one who can give and take away life? Martha didn’t hesitate she said Yes Lord I believe! Her faith saved her brother’s life, Do you believe?

Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” John 11:40

Jesus confirmed what he prophesied to raise Lazarus from the dead based on faith, because Martha believed with all her heart, mind, and soul who Jesus is, he delivered Lazarus. After Jesus prayed to the Father, he then commanded Lazarus to Come Forth!

Jesus spoke the dead back to life, just like he can speak our dry bones back to life also. Jesus is The Resurrection, he holds the key to life and death, nobody comes to the Father except through Christ in Jesus Name Amen!

Intercede For Us

In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; Romans 8:26

What to say to God? Sometimes when we are praying, we can’t find the words to express the sorrow or maybe joy we are feeling. But the Holy Spirit, that dwells in us, will intercede for us to express our feelings to the Father God.

We often here people say I don’t know how to pray or I don’t know what to say to God. We need to remember that God searches our hearts and minds (Jeremiah 17:10) He knows your inner feeling even when we can’t express them. He knows the pain and sorrow we have endured, don’t ever hesitate to pray to the Father, the Holy Spirit will intercede for you and give you the words to speak

“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; John 14:16

God said he would never leave or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6) and he hasn’t. The Holy Spirit has been sent to live with us forever, to be our Comforter, Helper , and Advocate. Let the Holy Spirit guide you to speak to our Father.

Whatever your feeling, whether it be sorrow, joy, anxiety, or hope, always pray to your Heavenly Father in Jesus Name Amen!

Who Is Jesus?

They became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” Mark 4:41

Who is Jesus? This is what the disciples asked as Jesus commanded the wind and sea to obey him. Who can speak to demons and have them shutter and beg to flee in a herd of swine? Who can bring the dead back to life by one touch or command? Who can walk on water or turn water into wine?

Jesus has demonstrated over and over again, that he is more than just a man. He showed that he is more than just a prophet or a teacher. He revealed that he is the beginning and the end. He is Immanual “God is with us”

Still today many people only consider Jesus a great man or teacher. They say he had some good ideas but wasn’t the only way to God. Jesus said he is the way , truth , and the life, nobody comes to the Father God except through him. There is no other way to God except through Jesus Christ!

Finally he paid the atonement for our sins, and on the third day he walked out of that grave alive forevermore. Sin and death were defeated forever, no more would they have a stronghold on us as long as we follow Jesus Christ!

Who is Jesus? He’s the answer to every problem you ever had, he gave his life so you could have yours eternally in Jesus Name Amen!

God In The Flesh

And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5

Another display of Jesus deity was revealed to us in this story. When a home was so crowded because Jesus was there, these men decided to lower a paralyzed man through the roof so Jesus would heal him.  But Jesus says an interesting thing here, instead of saying you are healed he says to the man “Your sins are forgiven”  Who can forgive sins but God?

“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins. Isaiah 43:25

God clearly revealed he is the only one who can forgive sin, so then Jesus must be God in the flesh to forgive sin. The religious leaders understood this as they accused Jesus of blasphemy for this (Mark 2:7) If Jesus wasn’t claiming to be God in the flesh, then why would they accuse him of blasphemy?  Jesus  not only healed this man but make him a new man!

“But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins “– He said to the paralytic, Mark 2:10

Jesus revealed to everyone that he is God in the flesh, he has authority over sin and death. Son of Man is reference to the title  Daniel described seeing Jesus in his prophecy (Daniel 7) Jesus used this reference because the Religious leaders knew exactly who Jesus was revealing himself to be.

Through Jesus your sins can be forgiven, by your faith you can be healed in Jesus Name Amen!

Make Us Clean

And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Mark 1:40

Why did you come to Jesus? This may sound like an odd question, however when people come to Jesus for the wrong reasons, typically they fall away from their faith. However when we come to Jesus , as the Leper, begging for mercy, then we truly come to Jesus for the right reasons.

Lepers during these times were considered sub human and outcasts. Religious leaders would not even allow Lepers to be part of society, they were banished to deserted places left to die. We are these “spiritual Lepers”, we were dead in our sins, left to die. However Jesus Christ had mercy on us, and he is the only one who can make us “Spiritually Clean”

Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Mark 1:41

What was Jesus motive to heal us? He was moved with compassion, even though we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) Jesus loved us before we knew him, he said “I AM Willing”, he was willing to go to the cross for our sins, he was willing to take the wages of our sins upon himself, he was willing to love a spiritual leper when nobody else was

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Come to Christ for mercy and salvation, he is willing to cleanse you from your sins in Jesus Name Amen

Rebuke Evil

Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,saying, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are– the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:23-24

Jesus entered the synagogue (Jewish place of worship) and there was a man possessed with a demons. Make note of this, we don’t usually think of demons being active in holy places such as churches, however as we see, demons are everywhere!

However the demons immediately recognize who Jesus is, “The Holy One of God” and they trembled as they said “Have you come to destroy us?” Even these demons recognizes the power and position of our Lord Jesus Christ, do you understand who Jesus is?

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”  Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. Mark 1:25-26

Jesus had no fear of these demons or their evil and rebuked them immediately. And at his command they were cast out, understand the power that we poses through Jesus Christ. As you walk through the valley of death, we can Fear No Evil (Psalm 23)because we are victorious through Jesus Christ!

Whatever evil Satan and his demons are tormenting you with today, don’t fear them, REBUKE them in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

The Cure

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Acts 3:6

Are you tired of being a beggar? Are you tired of hoping money is going to solve all your problems? Peter came across a man who spent his days begging for money because he couldn’t walk, Peter didn’t give him the temporary solution of money he gave him the permanent cure of Jesus Christ

Today we feel captive by the world, hoping we get our next dollar to get by. But take heart because Jesus has already overcome the world (John 16:33), sickness and death have been defeated at the cross. (2 Timothy 2:10)  We must learn that God is our provider not man (Philippians 4:19) He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35) and will supply you with daily manna to sustain you

Through Christ we are no longer beggars but royalty. We are children of God (Romans 8:15) and we worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16) Before you were born God knew you and set you apart (Jeremiah 1:5) So stop begging and start praising your Heavenly Father and our Messiah Jesus, through amazing grace the chains are gone. The Son shall set you free, and you are free indeed (John 8:29) in Jesus Name Amen

Works of God

And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? John 9:2

Many times in life when something goes wrong or were faced with a struggle, we ask God why? Why would you allow this to happen? Why are you making me go through this? This same scenario was brought up by the disciples.

A man born blind from birth, so the disciples questioned Jesus, why? Why would God allow this to happen? Did the man bring it upon himself?

Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:3

Jesus clearly answered them that the man’s blindness was not his fault. Nor was it his parents or anyone else’s fault. God allowed the man to be blind so the glory of God can be revealed through him. So what does that mean?

First we must remember we live in a broken world, due to our sin we have subjected ourselves to disease and death. Second our purpose of life is to continue to learn and grow in preparation of Gods Kingdom. Since we can’t live in a perfect world, due to our choice of sin, we must learn from our struggles and turn to God.

What struggle or burdens have you been dealing with? Do you blame yourself or God? We need to learn that Satan wants to destroy us, but through Christ we can overcome everything. We can overcome any disease, struggle, addiction, illness, because Jesus has already overcome sin and death.  So cast your troubles to Jesus and allow Gods glory to be displayed through you in Jesus Name AMen

Jesus Still Heals

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak

because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”

Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering Mark 5:27-29

In Mark 5 we learn two examples of Jesus healing power. It all started when a man name Jairus, a synagogue leader seeked Jesus to save his dying daughter.

But along the way another woman showed a great deal of faith by just touching the cloak of Jesus and her daughter was healed. Jesus says to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering ( Mark 5:34) Notice her faith activated Gods healing
He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”)

 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. Mark 5:41-42

Then by the time Jesus was able speak to Jairus his daughter had died. It’s important to first realize Jairus was a synagogue leader. It took him a lot of faith not only to believe in Jesus but to risk losing his position.

And immediately Jesus spoke life into the girl’s body, we must realize not only is there power in the name of Jesus but there is power in the Word of God.

The scriptures we read and speak are messages giving to us directly from God. But you need to have faith to activate the power of God’s word and your prayers.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

If your looking for a miracle or healing today, speak the words of Isaiah 53:5 with faith. By the sacrifice of Jesus, he conquered the grave. If you believe it, then you will receive it in Jesus Name Amen
