"HOW TO ESCAPE PROBLEMS"
TEXT: ST. MATTHEW 8: 1 - END
"When he was come down from the mountain, great multitude followed Him. And behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
And Jesus saith unto him, see thou tell no man; but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a Centurion, beseeching Him, and saying Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of paralysis, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
The Centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me; and I say to this man, go, and he goeth; and to another, come, and he cometh, and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
And I say unto you, many shall come from the east and west and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of heaven. But the children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the Centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the same hour. And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, He saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose, and ministered unto them.
When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils, and He cast out the spirits with the word, and healed all that were sick. That it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Now when Jesus saw great multitude about Him, He gave commandment to depart unto the other side. And a certain scribe came, and said unto Him, Master, I will follow thee where so ever though goest; And Jesus saith unto him, the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay His head.
And another of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead. And when He was entered into a ship, His disciples followed Him, and behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, in so much that the ship was covered with the waves; but He was asleep. And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord, save us; we perish. And He said unto them, why are ye fearful. O ye of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
But the men marveled, saying; what manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him;
And when He was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And behold, they cried out, saying, what have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding, so the devils besought Him, saying, if thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And He said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine, and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their coasts."
Beloved, you cannot deny the fact that you have been exhaustively taught the word of God in this Kingdom. The Holy Spirit is the one teaching. It behoves you therefore to listen to the true teachings of the Holy Spirit and put them into practice. You loose nothing listening to those lives giving teachings, yet you do not practice them. All the people of the world are today complaining of one form of hardship or the other because they have rejected the word of God. It is impossible for anyone that listens to and put the true teachings of the Holy Spirit into practice, to have problems. This therefore, reveals to you that the problems you encounter lies in offshoot of your disobedience to God's injunctions.
Keeping the injunctions of God is trouble soothing. This therefore is the reason why the true children of God do not have problems. For one to qualify to be a true child of God, he must listen to the word of God and practice the same.
Beloved, righteousness is all that is expected from you. If somebody offends you do not avenge him, neither should you judge nor impute sin on him. Rather, be forgiving. Only God, you should realize is the judge. He is the one to avenge for His children. Always you have to bless and not to curse. This you need do to fulfill the scriptural demand for the children of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ taught that you should love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you. So that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun to shine for both evil and good people and sends His rain on the just and on the unjust. (Read: St. Matthew 5: 44-45). Again, you have been told, "Resist not an evil doer"?
Always think good of others. Think no ill of another person and do not engage in any act that is capable of provoking your neighbor. Love everybody and do him or her good through all your years. Do not cause division, be charitable to all and let your existence be a source of sustenance to the helpless.
You have known that the key to over-coming temptation is fasting and prayer. You have to fast and pray for the betterment of others. In supplication you have to relate to God the problems of others and seek the same to be solved for them. In so doing, you have become a source of solution to people when they are in trouble. No doubt, many people have problem even when they pose as the children of God. This is because they tend to over look the usefulness of prayers. What types of children of God are they, if they do not start everything they do with prayers? I have taught you to always start all your activities with prayers so that God on invitation through such prayers will come in and direct you aright. Any thing you eat, without first praying over it is not clean. You have to pray before you eat else such food is unclean. In fact, it is not food but poison. Even the house you have built, if you pack and live in that house without blessing it, it remains unsanctified and in fact, unsafe, for children of God's habitation.
Beloved, My peace and blessing abide with the entire world. Now and forever more. Amen.
Thank you Good Father
