Matthew 8:5-13 ~ Appealing to Him +†+


Capernaum - entering by hike. There is a 40 mile Hike called the Jesus Trail. I am sure Jesus has traveled the Universe calling the Stars by Name and all of the Heavenly Host.

Matthew 8:5-13


5 When he had entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to him, appealing to him,  “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering terribly.”

7 And he said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

8 But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my servant,  ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 

10 When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel[ have I found such faith. 11 I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, 12 while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 



13 And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.







1 John 5


5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. 

2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?


6 This is he who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.


9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son. 11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.





13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

16 If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God[a] will give him life—to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say that one should pray for that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that does not lead to death.

18 We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.

19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols.





New Letter Read from the Dead Sea Scrolls 2018



Examine in great detail. Today - The Dead Sea Scroll may have only one more letter to be pieced together.  Yet using Nasa technology - we have a new letter from the Dead Sea Scrolls. Fragments previously unplaced are also worked in to their source.  The new letter tells of Temple festivals and seasons were determined back to Moses by looking at creation. The moon and the stars told the time interpreted by the High Priest. The Essenes used a 364-day Calendar and the date was always the same. What would be better? Easter follows the exact way Passover is determined by the moon and the stars of God's system put in place in His Creation,. And Christmas and other holidays are the same time every year.

Using Nasa technology, the Israel Antiquities Authority has been able to analyse dozens of fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls to discover “traces of ink on many fragments that appeared blank to the naked eye.”

The newly discovered texts have been identified as belonging to the books of Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and Jubilees, also known as the Lesser Genesis. Psalm 147.

Fragments have also been discovered from The Temple Scroll, the longest of all the Dead Sea Scrolls and gives information on how to properly conduct Temple services.


God, evidently, favors both systems  - of finding days for Holy Festivities - and Nasa with combined efforts of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Mercy interests God most.








Luke 7

Is found in the National and University Library. 2677 Strasbourg France about 400 A.D. Unfortunately, the Library does not display a photo of Papyrus 82. The Papyrus is part of system of Papyrus connecting the idea of the way our worship is put together in the Traditional Liturgy. Amazing the way we all tie in together in history, in life and in the Body of Christ. Encourage each other to display the Glories of God to the public.

7 When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” 6 So Jesus went with them.


1 John 1:7
Walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.



Leviticus 17:11
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.






The Spirit of God displays His Willingness to participate in the healing of the Centurion's Servant.

Jesus comments on some things we tend to brush off.

There is a balance going on in these two passages.

Jesus is fully telling us - some situations do not win. Some souls are not going to Rise up to the Goodness of Jesus. Prayer does not fully rest on our faith efforts. We are relieved of being God and feeling we failed. Luke 7 compliments Matthew 8 - the Centurion is seen to have works to show his inner soul. We can be sure - being part of the Roman Army would have times when Pontius Pilate calls for obedience in violent acts ultimately causing Pilate to be fired. There is a mess in life. Requiring God to have to be Alive and Working. To be involved in Salvation. To ask us to participate in our salvation and the small efforts of dust in the wind humanity. We are sometimes said to be the hands and feet of God - I don't think we are all the hands and feet of Salvation - when Jesus is God and is the entire culmination of Salvation. The Good Samaritan is our efforts. Salvation is a gift of God.

What is the Centurion, and those around him, creating - a meaningful life pleasing to God. Not shirking what God has put in our path - to reach up to Jesus - to join together and with Jesus.

God is telling us the balance. Faith, works, His Blood. His Spirit.

The Healing would occur in the blood - Life is found in the blood. The Blood of Jesus willing to be present. Water - Living Water - willing to go where Father God would have the Living Water. Water is known to follow the course water wants to take. Nurturing and soaking.

Psalm 130

1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!

2 O Lord, hear my voice!

Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

3 If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.

5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

7 O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.




That... that... that is
An Awesome and Worthy God.

Willing to be in the depths of humanity. Able to bring us up to the Glory of God Almighty. Ancient of Days. Redeemer of mankind in giving us His Only Son. Jesus.

John records thinking about the miracles of Jesus for quite some time. Going into the details of Jesus to see where God's Willingness Lives, Works and Acts. John is giving us decades of his life - considering his eyewitness of Jesus.




Capernaum

The miracle involves Jesus doing what God Himself has done for Abraham. Abraham asked God for Mercy for others in acts like of sin. The Kidnapping of Lot. Immediately we are shown God will move to Mercy in Prayer.

We have complete assurance God Himself left his motive, that day, to be for the Children of Israel to give Life. God puts aside His Daily Planner to be Merciful.

Also giving us the assurance to know we are not God. God, Himself, will decide where He puts His Spirit. We are told in both passages - some will not rise to God's Goodness. And then we are assured God will go where we wouldn't assume God would dwell. God decides. And we can be very pleased with His Will. And when. really, we are not - we are welcome to explain to God why this is just, reasonable, filled with mercy - our prayer requests. God allows Jesus to give us the analogy - God is an unjust Judge. This is indeed, indeed, indeed the elevator God takes dooooown to us to have us understand God. (Lately, we have been unable to create our own DNA molecules.)

The Comfort of God - somethings are not winnable. We should not despair.

Always Pray with Hope. God is Working.


Today - the view from John's Cave on Patmos





Abba, Holy Father,

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. We ask Your Willing Blessings.

God our Father, in Jesus, fill us with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may abound in hope.

The Kingdom of God is of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Aren't we Glad to know. Rejoicing in Life we know can only be explained as a Miracle - the reason we Hope and Lean and Dwell and Yearn for God. Knowing, knowing, knowing - God is Alive and working for us and for others. We want to know Daily - the Works and Miracles of God.

Thank You God. Thank You God. Thank You Father - for giving us the working knowledge - You are Working. Today. Thank You for Dee's Miracle. Thank You for Edward's eyesight. Thank You for my headaches being gone.

These things You have spoken to us, that our joy may be in You, and that our joy may be full.

Abba, David always took time to Hope in Your Mercy.

So we will rest for ourselves, for the ones we Love, the People You give us. Rest believing Your Goodness for our Nation. The Nations trusting in You. And all Believers asking in the Name of Jesus.

Thank You God for Today. We always have the choice exactly like Alzheimer's patients' children. Life or Death. We can be glad for the joys the parent has. Rejoice with them or mourn for normalcy and yesterday. In Rejoicing - we have Hope. And Joy. In the fruitless yearning of time past - we have only loss and hurt. 

Thank You for Today. We will be the Easter People seeing and looking for what is good and noble in today. 

Jesus is God.


Amen.

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
