This finally brings me back to my original thoughts and message of this scipture. Sorry it has been a long and tortures journey.
King James Version (KJV)
“Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.”
“And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.”
Raising the dead, healing the sick, comforting the broken hearted. Jesus saw, had compassion, touched them, then spoke what they needed into existance.
From the beginning God said. In the New Testament, Jesus said:
“Are ye also yet without understanding?”
“It is written”
“Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.”
He directs us to truth, it is up to us to believe.
“Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.”
“Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
“If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”
Release unto God that which you hold in closest, let the Lord have that place in your heart.
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
“Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.”
“Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.”
“Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.”
“I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger;”
“Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.”
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”
“Neither do I condemn thee:”
“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
Can we believe Do we believe? Are we resting in, trusting in, letting Him rule and reign in our lives.
Are you hearing Him speak to you, through His Word, acting apon in? Not only must we hear and act, we must learn to speak, His will, His words, His desire.
King James Version (KJV)
“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
ONLY BELIEVE AND NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU.
Faith is believing God IS, and believing HE IS a rewarder of those who seek HIM.
Lord, help us to seek Your face. Help us to speak Your will into existence.
