TEXT: HEBREWS 2: 1-4
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
Key verse: Hebrews 2: 4 “God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders and with diverse miracles and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to His own will.”
Jesus turned water into wine. It was an unusual manifestation of the Holy Ghost that
happens once in a generation according to the mind of God. If you have a wedding
and you need drinks, pray and plan in advance. Even if there is lack of drinks, pray
for God to supply. Don’t ask people to fetch water and fill water pots to turn them
to wine as Jesus did. The seven sons of Sceva did that and demons handled them
very well. So, don’t do such things. Again, how do these signs follow those that
believe? In my name they shall lay hands upon the sick and the sick shall recover;
the normal way. Pray for the sick, lay hands and call upon God in the name of Jesus.
Believe and it shall be done. “For whosoever shall say to this mountain, be thou
removed and be thou cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe
that what he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he sayeth”. Mountain
signifies anything that blocks your way. Furthermore, in the ministry of Jesus we
observe that at a time His garment healed the sick. Like the woman with issue of
blood; many people thronged Jesus and many people touched His garment but her
faith did it. She believed that if she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment she will be
healed. When Jesus asked, “who touched me?” Peter wondered; everybody is
pushing you and you ask of who touched You? There was a special touch of faith.
The Holy Spirit manifested in an unusual way, so she touched Jesus and got healed.
The woman came forth and said, “I am the one”. Did the cloth of Jesus continue to
heal the sick? If the cloth of Jesus had kept on healing the sick, men would have
done everything to kill Him and take His cloth or thieves will deprive Jesus of clothes
for healing business and say, “Now, whatever is your sickness, we have the solution
here.” Only the shadow of Peter healed the sick but it did not keep on healing the
sick otherwise people will abandon Jesus and be following the shadow of Peter.
Thought for the day: Beware of commercializing the gospel for personal gain.
Song for the day: Praising the Lord, always…
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 34-35; Acts 22
