IF BY AN ACT OF GOD

27 Jul

It always seemed odd to me that insurance companies will write in a contract “if by an act of God” meaning if some disaster happens. Yet there is absolutely no evidence that Jesus/Yeshua ever blessed any storms or natural disasters. It certainly be best if they learned to stop blaming God for things the devil does.

Never have I read in the our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural, (Bible) any place that suggest that Jesus was sitting somewhere with a raging storm about Him and Jesus tells that storm to go to a certain town or city and destroy them so it will cause them to be humbled, so then they will pray and become more godly. Religious spirits through people say that sort of thing, but the Lord Jesus never said anything like that. If Jesus is the same all the time, I dare say it makes our understanding much easier to grasps this then. This is not really that complicated.
Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, offer you his salvation which includes healing and provision and to give you a more abundant life.

We read in 1st John 3:7,”Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” If Jesus said to us as the priesthood of believers, ” as the Father has sent me so I send you”. Do we really need to ask what we are suppose to be doing in our life and practicing each day?  We read in John 20:21,” Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”

The Lord Jesus sends us to do what for what purpose? That we might also help destroy the works of the devil.

We read about Jesus sleeping on that boat he just preach a message from in Mark 4:35,” And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.” Do you think it was God’s will to cross over to the other side? Do you think its God will to heal, the sick cast out devils and preach the Gospel?
“36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.” As the Lord started across the sea other boats were along side of Him.
“37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?”
Now what sort of question is that to ask the Lamb of God who came to save the world? “Don’t you care that we are perishing, Lord will you please wake up and see that we are about to all drown?” I mean really these disciples came and woke up God in the flesh here, think about that one.
“39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”
This is really a rather usual story here, I mean the disciples wake Jesus up who has already proven to them in many ways by now that he and Papa God are one and that he cares a great deal about them. He obviously loves them greatly and they must have understood that part somehow. I mean, consider this who caused the storm? If Papa God sent the storm then that means that Jesus just rebuked God and Himself and their work here on earth?

Satan is called the prince of the power of the air and appears that he can also cause storms. Ephesians 2:1,”And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”
So here are the disciples basically praying to God to save them from drowning and he answers their prayer by speaking to the storm and making it suddenly stop and then Jesus asked them how is it you have no faith? Isn’t faith really just believing God for something and expecting Him to answer and do something? Do you think the Lord can handle the storms in your life today? Emotional storms, financial storms, health storms, international storms, intergalactic storms, relationship and business storms?

So it’s interesting to me here because the disciples could have come back and said something like, “Lord we do have some faith Lord we knew to come wake you up and that you would somehow save us.”

Sometimes we pray in a place of great desperation and sometimes we pray whilst entertaining spirits of doubt and disbelief in disobedience  as sort of a sort of religious experience. Then we are quick to blame someone, maybe we blame the Lord for the outcome when he does not answer the way we thought it should have been done.

Mark 11:24,” Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

When the Lord Jesus appeared on earth in the flesh he was and is what many people would call a radical, He was radical in His love towards us. He was radical in healing and performing miracles. He is the same today.( Hebrews 13:8)
I think truthfully the Lord is really looking for truly radical love and obedience back from us. When we worship Christ, we are humbling ourselves and we are opening the way for blessings to come and overtake us.

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
