JESUS IS THE ANSWER

 

God settles the equations when thing just don’t add up mathematically and He answers all the questions in the corners of our mind. 

 

Is there anything to hard for our God?  Is there anything He cannot do or anything He can’t see or feel and resolve? 

If you have answered “No” to these few simple questions then you and I are on the same spiritual link; we are on the same gospel page!

But if you think that God still can’t see you in the dark or that He doesn’t care about the shadowy life you choose to live.  This message is designed with you in mind.

 Many people over the ages and down through the years have questioned God ability to answer their deepest concerns.  The most stunning doubts I have ever heard are recorded in the bible.   

THE FIRST STUNNING ASUMPTION THAT QUESTIONED JESUS ABILITY TO ANSWER US 

Martha say to Jesus, John 11:21.  Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou “hadst” been here, my brother had not died.

Here we find a penetrating acquisition that there are some things that God just can’t have a solution so he ain’t in a hurry to come to our aid or rescue.

It is out of His realm of influence.  He has no power to empower.

How many of you have stood in Martha’s shoes or been where she is, which is at the gate, but without a key to unlock it and enter into the court yard of understanding Gods ability.

"My assertion to Martha's asumption is" 

Jesus is the key of truth to unlock and reveal answers to our deepest questions. 

I heard somebody say one day, “there is something to be learned everyday and when you stop learning it is because you are dead.”

Let me just stop here to ask you another question, when people don’t find the answer to their questions what are they most likely to do?

I believe the most common action of people is to give up on their search; and many times they proceed haphazardly along looking for their answer in all the wrong places.  How many of you believe that could be dangerous?  This method can lead you into greater darkness and trouble.  Folks can get caught up in isms and schisms, cults and occults.  Amen.

In this case study of Martha:  if she doesn’t get her answer from the Lord she will be in deep despair and could fallen  out with Jesus, because He didn’t Hasten to her brothers aid at her initial request.

Jesus addresses her question both of the physical and the spiritual death.

25.  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

 26.  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Jesus answers the question by calling Lazarus by “name” to come forth out of the grave.  She got her answer.

Maratha  was called out of darkness by God’s ability to answer in the time of need.  How many know "YOU CAN'T HURRY GOD"   and that God is a “ON TIME GOD.”  HE AIN’T NEVER LATE!

I believe this question about the resurrection was settle for me right there, but just in case it wasn’t settle for you let us continue.

THE SECOND IS THE QUESTION OF SUSPICIOUS

There was a man, much like Martha, but this fellow was a disciple of Christ.  He doubted the testimonies of those that had seen the Lord after He was crucified, died and buried in a cold dark cave.  On the third day he rose up, got up to get out and no man called His name to come forth.  He had indwelling power over death. 

Thomas said, if I might paraphrase, “yaw  lying, yaw tripping, what yaw  bend hitting.  I saw Him when he bowed His head, I know he sho nuff dead”. 

John 20:25.  The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26.  And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.   27.  Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.   28.  And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.   29.  Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.   30.  And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:   31.  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

THE MOST PROVOCATIVE QUESTION ASKED AND ANSWERED BY THE LORD

John 3 

 1.  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

 2.  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.   3.  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.   4.  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

 5.  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 9.  Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

Whether your questions are STUNNING ASUMPTION, QUESTION OF SUSPICIOUS or MOST PROVOCATIVE, JESUS IS THE ANSWER for the world today, besides Him there is no other, JESUS IS THE WAY.  The Lord Jesus Christ will answer every one of your question bye and bye.   Do you know Him today?
