Good morning brothers and sisters. As I was reading this morning, I wondered can we still do what the men of old did? We say that God never changes. We say that the same Jesus that called the twelve is the same Jesus that sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in us. We believe that. But then when it comes to other things, we say that is just for the those in Jesus' day, which is it? I am so confused. Do we believe the Bible or not? Let me give you an example. Luke9:1-6. Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. Ok Jesus gave them the power. Do we not have access to that today? Or did Jesus change His mind about us? 2- He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. I know we don't do that today. I know we don't heal the sick and we definitely do not preach the kingdom of God. 3- And He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor bag, nor bread, nor money, and do not have two tunics apiece. When God calls do we just go or do we have to prepare. Do we have enough faith for God to sustain us when we go and do His will? 4- Whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. How many houses would welcome a Jesus living, Jesus loving person into their home. Really, how many? 5- And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of the city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them." Do we worry when someone rejects the Lord? Of course we do, especially if it is a love one. But Jesus tells not to let it hinder us. We keep on going. 6- So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. So see what I mean. Do we still believe the same power that allowed the disciples to do this, is alive today? And if we don't, then are we saying that Jesus' power is not the same? I don't know. You tell me. Have a blessed day. Rise up child of God, rise up!
