A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus
Today in Church Service we had two testimonies of Christ touching the lives of Believers. Our Sr. Pastor reported that his health is improving and that his doctors are amazed at his recovery. Also, a young man gave a testimony of having been miraculously cured of cancer when he was 11 yrs. old. His father who was in prison was allowed to visit his son while he was in the hospital because they did not expect the son to live. The father who found Christ in prison prayed with his son all night and the next day when the doctor’s x-rayed the son for a possible bone-marrow transplant found that there was no longer any cancer and said it had to be a miracle. Praise God! Jesus, the same yesterday, and today and forever!!!!!!! Hebrews 13:8.
“Jesus Comforts His Disciples” John 14:1) Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. 2) In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 2Corinthians 5:1. 3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I Am, there ye may be also. Acts 1:11; 1Thessalonians 4:17. 4) And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
“Jesus The Way To The Father” John 14:5) Thomas saith unto Him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me. 2John 9, Revelations 5:8, 9. 7) If ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him. 8) Philip saith unto Him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:3. 10) Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works. 11) Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works’ sake. 12) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. 13) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Mark 11:24; James 1:5. 14) If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it.
Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary/Matthew Henry-v1-11 Here are thee words upon any of which stress may be laid. Upon the word trouble: Be not cast down and disquieted. The word heart: Let your heart be kept with full trust in God. Here is the remedy against this trouble of mind, “Believe”. The happiness of Heaven is spoken of as in a Father’s house. There are many mansions, for there are many sons to be brought to glory. Mansions are lasting dwellings. Christ will be the Finisher of that of which He is the Author; if He has prepared a place for us, He will prepare us for it. Christ is the sinner’s Way to the Father and to Heaven, in His person as God manifest in the flesh, in His Atoning (to make better) sacrifice, and as our Advocate. Through His Death and Resurrection, Jesus is The Way to the Father. He is also the Truth and The Life. As Truth He is The Revelation of God. As Life, He is the communication of God to us. Christ is, The Resurrection and The Life. All that saw Christ by faith, saw the Father in Him. v12-14 Whatever we ask in Christ’s name, that shall be for our good, He shall give it to us. To ask in Christ’s name, is to plead His Excellence and His Intersession (His intervention).
