MANY TOUCHED THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT AND THEY WERE MADE WHOLE

BIBLE READING: When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick, and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.
Matthew 14:34‭-‬36 NKJV

SHORT MESSAGE:
After the popular incidence of the woman of the woman with the issue of blood, who touched the hem of Jesus clothes and was made whole, a whole lot of people keyed into this particular faith and they were also made whole.

This is a sign for us that we can use a particular example of faith exhibited in the bible and our desires will be granted.

The name of the Lord  is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
Proverbs 18:10 NKJV.

As many righteous souls that called upon or leaned upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. What a relief. What is the name of the diseases or infirmities in your body? Although We may not have access to the Hem of Jesus' garment but we always have access to the Mighty name of Jesus.

Just like the woman with the issues of blood and like the multitudes, we shall call upon the name of the Lord and we shall be made whole. As many as possible who call upon the name of the Lord with faith shall be saved.

PRAYERS
Lay your hands on the sick part of your body and call upon Jesus, the son of the living God.....
Our kind and Loving Jesus, we humbly seek your Holy face to come and heal our sicknesses, whatever our infirmities are we pray for divine healing in the name of Jesus.

We believe you have heard our prayers, we have faith concerning this prayers, we know our health has been restored, thank you Jesus for answered prayers.

In Jesus name we pray.

CONFESS

I must really begin by saying this; "no one is too lost to be saved." 

So many times we look inward and we see how sinful we are, at this very point in time the devil tries to cloud our vision towards the manna of Love God the Father has given unto us. The devil makes us dwell so much on the sins we see in ourselves that we actually forget the only begotten Son of God (Jesus), which has been given as a ransom for our sins.

Whenever and everytime we see how sinful we are, we are just a Step away from tapping into the Love of God. And what step are we supposed to take?
TO CONFESS OUR SINS TO GOD.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness"

Confessing our sins put us in these positions before God;
- we totally accept the fact that we are sinners 
- we take responsibilities for our sins
- we see ourselves as a weak vessel in need of help
- and we are humble to seek God for forgiveness 

Believe me, our God who is able to give His only begotten Son even when the world did not ask for it, is always Merciful and Just to cleanse us from every form of unrighteousness. 

The hope I've been able to acquire from this Bible text is this; if I confess my sins, God will forgive me.

IGNORE EVIL COUNSELS

Proverbs 1:8‭-‬19 NKJV

  8 My son, hear the instruction of your father, And do not forsake the law of your mother;
  9 For they will be a graceful ornament on your head, And chains about your neck.
 10 My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.
 11 If they say, “Come with us, Let us lie in wait to shed blood; Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
 12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol, And whole, like those who go down to the Pit;
 13 We shall find all kinds of precious possessions, We shall fill our houses with spoil;
 14 Cast in your lot among us, Let us all have one purse”
 15 My son, do not walk in the way with them, Keep your foot from their path;
 16 For their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed blood.
 17 Surely, in vain the net is spread In the sight of any bird;
 18 But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives.
 19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners.

HAVE YOU FOUND THE NARROW WAY?

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Matthew 7:13‭-‬14 NKJV

THE SAVED SAINTS

Revelation 7:1‭-‬4‭, ‬9‭-‬17 NKJV

THE SEAL OF ISRAEL
After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.

Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.

And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

THE SAVED SAINTS
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of ALL nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!

All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.

WHO ARE THE SAVED SAINTS?
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

BENEFITS OF BEING A SAINT
Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

ARE YOU A SAVED SAINT?
The question that came to me after i read the book of Revelation chapter 7 was; would i be called a saved saint in Heaven? This question applies to you all my friends.

Do we get drowned (lose our faith) during great tribulations? Have we been Redeemed by the blood of Jesus?

If and only if we are saved by the blood of Lamb (blood of Jesus) and we are able to endure every great tribulations to the end, then we can proudly remind ourselves that our heritage in heaven is very great;
- No hunger
- No thirst
- No sunburn No heat
- The Lord will be our leader
- We will drink from the Living fountain of water
- And God will wipe away every tears from our eyes.
AMEN!!!

PRAYER
Dear Lord, we humble ourselves before you again to seek Your face; we are here to re-dedicate our lives to you. Dear Lord, wipe away our sins with the blood of Jesus.
Father please give us grace to be counted among the saints when we get to heaven. We look forward to these heavenly heritages, please prepare us for it.

In Jesus Name we pray.

KNOWLEDGE AND INTEGRITY

Proverbs 19:1‭-‬2 NKJV

Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one  who  is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. Also it is not good for a soul to  be without knowledge, And he sins who hastens with his feet.

THANK YOU FATHER

Psalms 33:1‭-‬9 NKJV

Rejoice in the Lord , O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful.

Praise the Lord with the harp; Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings. Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

For the word of the Lord  is right, And all His work is  done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice;

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord . By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord ; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

THANK YOU FATHER

GOD WILL WILL SUPPLY YOU

II Corinthians 9:8‭-‬10 NKJV

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: “He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.” Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,

Amen



WE WILL GET WHAT HE HAS PROMISED

BIBLE READING:

Matthew 20:1‭-‬16 NKJV

  1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 
  2 Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 
  3 And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 
  4 and said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went. 
  5 Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.  
  6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ 
  7 They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.’ 
  8 “So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’ 
  9 And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius. 
 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius. 
 11 And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner, 
 12 saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’ 
 13 But he answered one of them and said, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 
 14 Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. 
 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’ 
 16 So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

SOME ANAYLYSIS
Let us begin by understanding the timing very well. The term "hour" referred to a period of time, one-twelfth of the daylight part of the day. As a general rule the first hour was equivalent to 6 to 7 am on a modern-day clock, and so on.

THE MESSAGE
The land owner agreed a denarius per day with the labourers that he met at the early hours of the day, lets say between 6 to 7 am. About 9 am (third hour) he employed some more, at 12 noon, he employed other set of laborers to work on the vineyard. At 3pm and about 5pm he also invite other sets of labourers to work on his vine yard. Please note the owner of the vineyard only bargained a definite price with the first set of labourers. 

What happened at the end of the day (6pm)? The land owner paid all the labourers  equal amount of money (one denarius each). 

Humanly thinking, we may think the owner of the vineyard is unfair especially if we are among the first set of labourers hired that day. But in the real sense, he bargained with us before our employment (one denarius per day) therefore whatever he chooses to pay other sets of labourers is none of our business (we will get what he has promised) 

The goodnews is; this parable is about the Kingdom of Heaven. As long as you are on the Lord's side (that is you have chosen Jesus as the son of the Living God and the Savior of your Soul) there is a promise of eternal Life. Other set of sinners will be converted several years after your conversion and the promise of Eternal life is also for them.

The Lesson here is; thinking the owner of the vineyard is unfair is like; thinking no other sinners should have the same access to eternal life as you, Now i will say that is unfair because you are not the very first person to be promised eternal life you are only fortunate to share eternal life with those whose the promise of eternal life has been made long before you were born.

Our God is a kind and a loving Father who will go all out to bring more souls to the vineyard even when our days are coming to an end so everyone will have a joyous end.

Be happy that you have the opportunity to be called into the vineyard of God, do not say in your heart that i will wait to join the vine at the later part of the day (time and chance may not make it happen) tomorrow may be too late. 

Always be thankful for the Salvation that you have right now for many are called but few are chosen. 

God bless you as you ponder on this.

WHO IS THE GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD

 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
 2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them,
 3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
 4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.

AMEN!!!
