Luke 16:27“He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.29″Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them. 30″‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent. 31″He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'”
Do you know that, that someone did rise from the dead, and yet many still do not believe!!!
Friends, if you believe that Christ Jesus came walked this earth, died, and rose up, and is seated at the right hand of the Most High God, you should give God some praise.
Many people’s minds are blinded, cannot hear, see or perceive this great but simple truth!
Father in your mercy let every Vail shrouding people’s minds from receiving the simple truth of your Word be removed in Jesus mighty name!
Job 14:7-9 “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. 8 Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, 9 yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
What scent does your life, situation, and circumstances need to sprout again?
Your specific need is different from mine, your neighbors, Pastors, Bishops, friends, and other believers.
Oh!, You think your Pastors, Bishops don’t have needs? They do, and if you are privy to others real needs you would be encouraged.
You have a need, I do, and every other person you know has needs.
Your case is not different, strange, special, or need more than faith in the Word of God, the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, plus the mercy of God to solve it!
There is nothing that has befallen you that is not common to man – 1 Corinthians 10:13. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Do not let anyone corner you into believing falsehood. God is on your side.
The scent your life need is unwavering faith in the life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. What He did on Calvary for you and I.
Moses at a time was cut down, Joseph, Hannah, Esther, Mordecai, Ruth, Naomi, Jesus himself, Paul, and Peter, and many more Saints were cut down, but at the scents of water they sprout up and are alive through their works even today.
Will you rise up from wherever you are to embrace Christ Jesus and all He already wrought for you?
Do not emphasize your human frailty more than what it is, and do not let any man or woman magnify the issues of your life for you to the point that you are blinded to what is attainable in Christ Jesus!
Jesus Christ! Faith in Jesus Christ! The leading of the Holy Spirit! Total reliance on the Sovereignty of the Almighty! And total commitment to believe in the capability of God to perform what He said He will do in you, through you will birth hope in you friends. Hope does not make ashamed! Romans 5:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart! Proverbs 3:5-6
1 Samuel 15: 29 He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.”
God did promise to never leave nor forsake you – Hebrews 13:5Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
He promised that your light shall break forth like the noon – Isaiah 58:8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
He promised that your light shall not dim or go out – Isaiah 60:20 – Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.
God has a fear not for each day of your year – Deuteronomy 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
These are just a few of what has been promised and spoken about you. God is not about to change His mind. He loves you
You are the apple of His eyes, a city set on a hill, a Royal Daidem, a Holy nation, God’s special child created and called to bring God joy and praise!
Do you see yourself in this light? There is more to you simply because you are purchased by the blood of Jesus!
You were worth dying for! And He patiently knocks at the door of your heart today. Will you open up?
Hebrews 4:7 .. “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.
There are promises for rejecting God’s love also! It is eternity without light, in darkness, separated from every semblance of love, peace, and joy!
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Joshua 24:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
