He Healed Them All – Last in the Series of Walking about Capernaum

I know on any given day it is next to impossible for me to stop by and visit with each of my WordPress neighbors. The confines of life and time prevent even the most willing of reader and neighbor from doing so. Then there was Jesus.

Two thousand year ago, in His first recorded miracle of changing the water to wine at the wedding in Cana, stepped into Capernaum. Jesus, our Bridegroom, steps into our lives to do the same today. Jesus path to our door. Touching our lives, health, homes, relationships with His miracles of refreshing joyous life, even when our “jars” have gone dry and all hope is lost.

Cana Stone Water Jar.

Oh, the marriage supper of the Lamb and His Bride.

“…for He has covered me with the robe of righteousness…and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10

Jesus, drawing all people to Himself to raise the dead, heal, touch, embrace, change lives, give new direction, and touch hearts.  Jesus of Capernaum.  Jesus the same yesterday, today and forevermore.

God Bless and Shalom!

 

“Let us rejoice and exult and give Him glory,

For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and

His Bride has made herself ready…

Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

Revelation 19:6-9 (ESV)

 

“Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and

I will give your rest.” Matthew 11:28 (ESV)

Thunder Changes Direction – Capernaum Part Nine

What of James and John, the sons of Zebedee?

 

Jesus passed by their work place and their course of life, and names changed forever.

The Sons of Thunder, James the older and first to die for Jesus name in Jerusalem.

And John, forever to be known as the “one whom Jesus loved”.  Follower, disciple, and writer of the Gospel of John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Revelation.

 

John’s is the English spelling for the Hebrew name “Johanan” which means “Jehovah is gracious”; hence, John represents “Grace”.

Grace represents the numeral five (5):

the fifth time Noah’s name is mentioned, it says “But Noah found grace…;”

the fifth time Ruth’s name is mentioned, “…in whose sight I may find favor or (grace);”

the fifth time David’s name is mentioned when we meet him in 1 Samuel 16, “…let David stand before me, for he has found favor (grace) in my sight.”

The Beloved John wrote five (5) books in the Bible;

Yes, John the disciple whom Jesus loved showered us with His Grace.

Movement of Tent

“To move our tents

Beneath the “terebinth’ tree,

To live in the land

You have given to me.

Separate myself from the

World of “Lot” and flesh.

Looking forever upward;

For in You

Is my dwelling and the rest.”

 

“And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him,

“Lift your eye now and look from the place where you are –

Northward, southward,

Eastward, and westward,

 

 

For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever…

Arise and walk through the land its

Length and width for I give it to you.

 

 

 

Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre.”

Genesis 13:14-18 NKJV

Shine the Light

Good deeds shine the day;

Compassion Lights up a life time!

 

“You are the light of the world.

A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden…

Let your light so shine before men,

That they may see your good works and

Glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV

The Subtle Bridge

Scripture First Mentions –
Between the words “Separate” and “Servant”
is the “serpent”.

Yep,
Separate – Jesus calls – Come follow Me.

afirican-boat-on-water
Servant – our hearts are opened to His.

africa-lesile-and-kids
but right there in the middle…is the “serpent”
“who was more subtle than any beast…” Genesis 3:1

africa-and-wooden-bridge-8

“…who was more subtle…” comes in many forms.

Sickness, distractions, the list can go as far as that bridge pictured.


With that said, my husband is on the road to recovery from surgery. Yesterday I was very concerned because it was not going as “quickly” as I thought recovery should be heading. As for myself, I made a doctor appointment -right ear continues from sinus issues.

My heart is “separated” to desire, but the “serpent” who is more subtle…has placed many distractions before this “servant.”


(I had to cancel the house Bible study meeting this evening)


One last “word”. Jesus is SO sweet to encourage us in our daily walk.

One small word is placed before the word ‘serpent’ in the Concordance.

Seraiah” 2 Samuel 8:17
“who was the scribe

Definition – Jah has prevailed. The name of 9 Israelites – and was mentioned in the context of one who served in King David’s administration.

Thank You Jesus, in Your tenderness, there still room to serve in the King’s administration and court. I loved the number 9…Nine fruits of the Spirit; nine gifts of the Spirit; and oh yea, been studying on the NINE candlestick lamp the Menorah!

Light the way my King!
Jesus, You are the Servant Lamp!!

In A Place Where Two Ways Met

As we approach the New Year, my heart is now ready to share with my WordPress friends.

After much turmoil of internal school politics, my family and I made the decision in July for me to quit my “loved” position as an elementary secretary.

dscn3207

We are now enjoying our son’s senior year in high school.

Thank you Faye, from Passionate Creative Christian https://fayerootsauthor.com/   Your comment on July 1, 2016 to my post “The Roar of the Blue” unknowingly guided my feet to find the answer to God’s plan and path for my way.


In A Place Where Two Ways Met

“How could I have known, or ever believed to say,

I found direction and freedom within the Words that day.

One was from the OLD, and the other from the NEW,

But there was no doubt involved,

My heart heard clear from You.

 

In the “donkey and the lion” and “in the place where two ways met”,

You mightily untangled both my feet from within the fowlers net.

 

The “donkey” is a servant,

dscn0701

But it’s My Peace I give to you,

Not to be ridden hard, whipped and broke in two.

 

The “lion” is your strength, not to cast aside.

29453_lion

I’ve given you My Power when in Me you do reside.

 

So now you find your peace “in the place where two ways met”.

One way was by Law, 

Law - the stony, hard way.
Law – the stony, hard way.

and the other

Grace by Faith.”

Grace - resting in Jesus Who loves me.
Grace – resting in Jesus Who loves me.

Mark 11:4 KJV

1 Kings 13:24-25

Psalm 124:7

Psalm 91:34

The Place called “Sent”

pool-of-sent-2-6020

“Then He anointed the man’s eyes with mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing.”

“So they said to him, “Then how were your eyes opened?”

He answered, “The man called Jesus made mud and anointed my eyes, and said to me, “Go to Siloam and wash.”

So I went and washed and received my sight.” John 9:6-11 (ESV)

So what if all the world thinks you’re crazy, as you make your way to the place called “Sent”? All they can see is the “mud” on your eyes, BUT all you can hear is the Voice of Jesus saying, “Go”.

Remember you are,

“Anointed” saying as the “man born blind from birth,”

“One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see!” John 9:25

 

Weaken Confidence – In A Word

What weakens confidence?

Hebrew word - Confidence - Batech
Hebrew word –
Confidence – Batech

The “twisting” between  

your “heart” and the

“Full Face” of Jesus!

Blows away, steals, strangles, destroy, kills... The "twisting" between your heart and the inner place of safety.
Blows away, steals, strangles, destroy, kills…
The “twisting” between your heart and

your fence of protection,

your inner place of safety,
