Prophet Without Honor

Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Matthew 13:54-55

When Jesus returned to his hometown of Nazareth during his ministry, the reaction was not what you would expect. Instead of people being joyful that the Messiah was from there hometown they began to question his legitimacy. Because they knew Jesus there entire lives they believed there is no way Jesus could be the Messiah, he just the carpenters Son

How you ever experienced this in your own life? Nobody how much you accomplished or how much you changed your life for the better your always going to have haters. There going to say “I knew this person growing up, they could never change” or “ I know where you come from , I know your family, you could never amount to anything”

And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.” Matthew 13:57

Imagine how Jesus felt, these people he grew up around all his life, including his family mostly rejected him. The people he thought he could count on the most were the ones who doubted him the most.

Are there people in your life doubting you today? Or maybe your doubting someone in your life? Remember God works in mysterious ways, his ways our higher than our ways. God took a poor carpenter Son and saved the world with him. Don’t let peoples doubt stop your from your diving destiny.

And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Matthew 13:58

Notice there lack of faith prevented Jesus from performing miracles. Imagine if they just had the faith the size of a mustard seed, how many miracles Jesus could have performed for them. But there doubt prevents the power of God from activating.

This is the same with our life, do you ever say “I don’t see any miracles” question is how much faith do you have? Is your lack of faith preventing Jesus from working in your life today? Remember with man it’s impossible but with God all things are possible in Jesus Name Amen

Foolish Prophets

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Ezekiel 13:3

Just as there were many false prophets back in Biblical days there are still many false or foolish prophets today. In fact if you look online theres an overabundance of people claiming there prophets from God with divine insights and special blessings

Beware of these false prophets, check the fruit they are bearing. Is there lifestyle that of living for the world or preparing for Gods Kingdom?

They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Ezekiel 13:6

False prophets proclaiming God is sending them great wealth and favor, God did not send these prophets or blessings. These are lies straight from Satan. Our riches are in Heaven and not of this world.

Consider Matthew 19:21 Jesus told the rich man if you want to see the kingdom of Heaven sell all your possessions and give it to the poor.

Then ask yourself about these false prophets if Jesus is teaching this why would God want to make you rich? Because it’s a lie, its false doctrine from a foolish prophet.

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 13:8

When you speak these lies, twist Gods word for your favor, God is then against you. Why? Because you are holding hands with Satan. Be careful who you are following and listening to, follow Jesus he is the truth, life, and the way

Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:  Ezekiel 13:10

These foolish prophets mislead people into believing that Christianity is a “walk in the park” that’s not what Jesus said we will be persecuted in his name. Those who don’t build there house on the rock on in for a rude awakening with the storms hit.

But when you build upon the truth, the rock, the prince of peace, you will be ready to battle those storms and overcome the world because Christ has already overcame it in Jesus Name Amen
