Bible Study on Holding Tight To Your Miracles according to Luke 23:8, Galations 3:5

Hold on tightly to your faith so that you do not miss your faith. Sometimes we pray for other for miracles but we look at ourselves that we have no miracles. It’s feels empty, clueless and faith recking. But only perseverance will prevent us from missing our miracles.

Jesus is not here to judge us or punish us or angry with us, but He wants to love us and wants our best for us. We might have drifted away or grow cold with God, He always wants us to have the best,  so that we can be a blessing to others. As told in the scriptures below that even the King of the Jews foresaw the miracles that yet to come from Jesus. Luke: 23. 8. Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was of a long time desirous to see him, because he had heard concerning him; and he hoped to see some miracle done by him. Indeed, Jesus has done many ‘miracles’ in today’s definition I.e. helping the sick and lappor, opening the eyes of the blind, raising the dead during his few years of discipleship, yet none of it was not mentioned as ‘miracles’ in the Bible. Because what he did was expected of a Messiah and a Savior.

The ingredients needed for God to yield Miracles in your lives requires the accompaniment and working of the Holy Spirit. The second ingredient is to have faith that the Holy Spirit will take care of us provide we are willing to obey him and do as instructed. The ingredients for God’s miracles is recorded in Galatians: 3. 5. He therefore that supplieth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, [doeth he it] by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

On this Good Friday, we acknowledge that Jesus is the hope of our lives and anchor of our lives and the God of breakthrough for miracles. Because Jesus is the person who is beside you always, no matter whatever your circumstances and situation. And he is forever the hope in your heart.

Bible Study on Jesus The Messiah And The Savior Of Our Sins according to John 6:15, Matthew 9:2, Ezekiel 36:26-27, Mark 1:8, John 20:31, John 3:30, John 1

Jesus was more than a prophet of God, He is God, although he is  fully human. The coming of the messiah was expected by the population of Israel at that time. However, the nation of Israel was in a mess at that time because they lost their political autonomy and were ruled  by foreign powers i.e. mighty Roman Empire for decades. They were longing for a King from the lines of King David to liberate them and hopefully it comes with freedom from oppression and better life. Thus the type of Messiah they were expecting was a  charismatic powerful King that could unite the people and fight for  independence. As the type of Messiah visioned is determined by the wish and expectations of the people.

As s result of the miracles that Jesus did throughout His journey of discipleship, His diciples and students wanted to make Him King of Israel to save them from destitution and a failing political and governing system as witnessed in John: 6. 15. Jesus therefore perceiving that they were about to come and take him by force, to make him king, withdrew again into the mountain himself alone. The mess during the time of Jesus, shaped how the Messiah would look and to save them from. However,  Jesus did not agree to be crowned King of Israel,  instead he withdrew to the wilderness.

The reason that a Messiah is needed to come and save the people from the mess was sin alone. One of the real crisis since the creation of human is that we cannot stand guilt free before God without condemnation. Our sins can only be forgiven by a Savior because we cannot save ourselves as depicted in Matthew: 9. 2. And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, be of good cheer; thy sins are forgiven. Jesus came to meet the crisis of our sin and to save sinners from sins and to live to God without condemnation. As much as it is important to us and the world, His mission is not only to save our health crisis, failing marriages, etc, but more importantly our sins and eternal life.

We are unable to live rightly before God for we are sinners. Our savoir will save us from our sins and grant us a new heart and the annointing of the Holy Spirit as promise on the passages below. Ezekiel: 36. 26. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. 27. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep mine ordinances, and do them. Jesus is the only solutions to sins before God. And in Mark: 1. 8. I baptized you in water; But he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit.

The real mess that we are in is the sins and not other problems and Jesus is the only solution that God prescribed for our sins and is confirmed in John: 20. 31. but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name.

John the Baptist is the Herald of the Hero and he knew it clearly in the conversation in John: 1. 15. John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that cometh after me is become before me: for he was before me. 16. For of his fulness we all received, and grace for grace. 17. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him]. 19. And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou? 20. And he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not the Christ. 21. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith, I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No. 22. They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 23. He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet. 24. And they had been sent from the Pharisees. 25. And they asked him, and said unto him, Why then baptizest thou, if thou art not the Christ, neither Elijah, neither the prophet? 26. John answered them, saying, I baptize in water: in the midst of you standeth one whom ye know not, 27. [even] he that cometh after me, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to unloose. 28. These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. Furthermore, John the Baptist acknowledge that he is only the Messenger of God and Jesus must become greater as spoken by him in John: 3. 30. He must increase, but I must decrease.

The church is not the Savior of the nation, but we are the Herald for the Savior in the nation. We are the messenger and Christ is the Hero for our generation.

Bible Study on The Word of God Came And He Is Your God Your Lord according to John 1, John 20, Isaiah 53, Matthew 16, Romans 5, 1 John 1, 2 Timothy 1, Revelation 19

The below testimony of the life and discipleship of Apostle John to witness the light of creation and to testifies that Jesus is eternally Godly, because He was with God in the beginning at the time of God’s creation. The grace of God was given to us in Christ Jesus even before time began. John: 1. 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3. All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made. 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5. And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not. 6. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. 7. The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the light, that all might believe through him. 8. He was not the light, but [came] that he might bear witness of the light. 9. There was the true light, [even the light] which lighteth every man, coming into the world.

Logos means the reason Why? according to Heraclitus. Bios means life in Greek. Jesus must be the reason to live, as Jesus is the truth and grace,  which gives life to the world. According to John 1:10. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came unto his own, and they that were his own received him not. 12. But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: 13. who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.

Jesus is also essentially God. This forms the doctrine of the Holy Trinity I.e. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, where they are separate entitles at different dimensions and time and yet they are of God. Mind boggling isn’t it!  Because we are the creations of God, thus we cannot explain God and the His manifestations and we can only accept what God is by faith.

Jesus is equally God because Thomas said my Lord and my God as witness in John: 20. 28. Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29. Jesus saith unto him, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.

John: 20. 30. Many other signs therefore did Jesus in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book: 31. but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name. Again the testimony of John that Jesus is the son of God and is Christ or Messiah to annoint us. Because John has seen his miracles, heard of his Words and touched Jesus personally.

Isaiah: 53. 2. For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3. He was despised, and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised; and we esteemed him not.

Jesus does not promise a problem free and easy life, but He will ensure that we will live above the storm. Matthew: 16. 24. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25. For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Nonetheless, God asked us to submit our lives to Him and lift our chins up, because God is a God of joy and is confirmed in the following scriptures below. Romans: 5. 3. And not only so, but we also rejoice in our tribulations: knowing that tribulation worketh stedfastness; 4. and stedfastness, approvedness; and approvedness, hope: 5. and hope putteth not to shame; because the love of God hath been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit which was given unto us.

Jesus is the light of the world according to 1 John: 1. 1. That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we beheld, and our hands handled, concerning the Word of life 2. (and the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare unto you the life, the eternal [life], which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us); 3. that which we have seen and heard declare we unto you also, that ye also may have fellowship with us: yea, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ: 4. and these things we write, that our joy may be made full. 5. And this is the message which we have heard from him and announce unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6. If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7. but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Jesus is Christ the Messiah for all mankind according to 2 Timothy: 1. 9. who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before times eternal, 10. but hath now been manifested by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

Jesus is the Word of God that brings life and immortality according to Revelation: 19. 13. And he [is] arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14. And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white [and] pure. 15. And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.

Nowadays, many Christians have a feel good perspective about Church and Christianity. Where things are not right, the thought of jump ship emerges. Because many might feel that this is not what we bargain for when accepting Christ. And many at times of sorrow or happiness, we easily forget who Jesus is and why He came for. Let us not by the temptations and evils of the world be colluded and forget that Jesus is Lord of our lives, Jesus is the Word of God, Jesus is Christ the redeemer and restorer of the world.

As it is written in the Bible, the scripture passages herein is as it is written by God. What is God’s issues remains in His authority and not ours and is beyond us.
