Regardless of needs you have, physical symptoms that you are battling with, our Lord is the Commander of life and death. Don’t have to wait for someone to lay hands on you.

Whether you have parenting challenge, the answer is to see Jesus.
How do we see Jesus?
If you have money challenge or habit you are struggling with, see Jesus.
Our problem is always back to the cross, Jesus Christ.
When we look at Jesus, whatever our challenges are, see Jesus in the Word.
Don’t look for vision.
The word is how we see Jesus.
When He rose from the dead, the very same day, He dried a woman’s tear.
On the same day He approached 2 disciples of His. Their eyes were restrained from seeing Him in person. They were depressed.
Why are you talking to each other and are sad?
They thought Jesus was the One to deliver Israel and bring redemption. Their focus was Israel as the centre and Jesus is the mean to the end.
We use Jesus to obtain what we think is best for us.
The purpose of Holy Spirit is to replace everything else and put Jesus in the midst.
Greater and eternal Priesthood. Jesus is better than in the book of Hebrews.
Looking unto Jesus!
Look away from everything that will distract
Look away all heroes of faith and look to Jesus!
The road of Emmaus they were disappointed. The Lord expounds Himself in the Word.
Why did He restrain their eyes?
It was more important for them to see Him in the Word than to see Him in Person.
Expound Jesus Christ and Him crucified
Holiness is from the root word whole.
To be holy is to be uncommon.
Seeing Jesus will also answer you.
Marriage is made up of 2 broken people come together. See Jesus.
Jacob’s Last Words to His Sons
And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days:
All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.
Beginning at Moses
Prophets things concerning Himself
Jesus expounds things concerning Himself. See things concerning Himself in the Scriptures.
“Gad, a troop shall tramp upon him,
But he shall triumph at last.
“Bread from Asher shall be rich,
And he shall yield royal dainties.
“Naphtali is a deer let loose;
He uses beautiful words.
“Joseph is a fruitful bough,
A fruitful bough by a well;
His branches run over the wall.
A troop shall tramp upon him but he triumph at last.
When someone scream across the lake, you can hear it.
The demonic guy who had chains and he would scream day and night.
Crying and crying and they will hear.
Jesus will look yonder with the eyes of compassion.
That is 100% Man. Fully Man and fully God. He slept in the boat. There was storm arose and the devil tried to stop Jesus from reaching that one man.
They went to the shore. Jesus was the only One who met the demonic guy. The rest of the disciples were not with Him.
The demonic man knew Jesus was the Answer. He fell at Jesus’ feet.
With one word, Jesus spoke, “Go!”
And they all left. They jumped to the pigs and they committed suicide.
Jesus asked what is his name. He said legion which is about 6000 demons in one man.
A legion trumped onto this man but Jesus triumph at last.
The word Gad means a troop.
Gad went all the way to southern part of Galilee.
Bread from Asher shall be rich
Asher is right on top.
City of Tyre, there He saw a woman who begged Jesus to save her daughter. She was pretending when she came to Jesus. Jesus hates hypocrisy. When u prepare to be what u r not and I ℓσνє u, u will not know u r loved. When u don’t pretend, and I ℓσνє you, u know u r loved.
Jesus did not answer her when she pretended. Jews called Gentiles dogs in those days. Jesus used a beautiful terms, puppies.
Her faith reached out.
After Jesus died and rose again, healing bread is for Jews and Gentiles.
Give us this day our daily bread. Daily health
It happened at Asher. It was healing bread.
Naphtali is a deer let loose
He gives beautiful words
When you feel the appreciation, show it.
Naphtali is the area where 2/3 of Jesus’ miracles were performed
For the hearts of these people are hardened,
and their ears cannot hear,
and they have closed their eyes—
so their eyes cannot see,
and their ears cannot hear,
and their hearts cannot understand,
and they cannot turn to me
and let me heal them.
6+6+6 the woman was bound for 18 years looking down. When she was set loose the first face she saw was Jesus.
Watering and healing are the same. When you bring someone to water, is basic needs you are providing.
Naphtali is a deer let loose
Sea of Galilee
Eastern part is where Jesus did most of His miracles.
One demonic man who was delivered preached the good news about Jesus to 10 cities.
Everyone who is born is born to sin. They are negative and not free to think.
Only Jesus can set you free.
As long as you are bound by negative thinking, you are slaves to limited reasoning.
Don’t waste your life. Make sure you find the real thing. You cannot be unsure about your salvation and your relationship with God.
Your life is too precious.
God loves you. Make sure u know the gospel.
Control your time. Don’t let it control you.
He that boast, boast that you know Him
Know Jesus and have your life transformed by Him.
Joseph a fruitful bough by a well
There is a wall of partition that said Gentiles cannot cross over. Christ broke down the middle of partition. It is Jews and Gentiles come together. A new creation in Christ.
Fruitful tree sitting by the well
Joseph was loved by the father and rejected by his brothers.
God gave us His Son. He did not give us his angels. He gave us His best, Jesus Christ His Son.
Gave us the best, the only begotten Son
During his separation from the brothers Joseph married a gentile bride.
There are so many Jews turning to the Lord now.
Jesus needed to go through Samaria.
But He needed to go through Samaria.
So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
His blessing went over the wall of partition
Even while He was tired and seated. He was ministering life and living water.
Jesus never get tired of pouring out. He was refreshed when He poured out. He was a fruitful bough
“Issachar is a strong donkey,
Lying down between two burdens;
He saw that rest was good,
And that the land was pleasant;
He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden,
And became a band of slaves.
City of Nain (pleasant, beauty)
A large crowd following Jesus and following the funeral.
Jesus Raises the Son of the Widow of Nain
Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd.
And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her.
When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.
Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.” And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region.
The Jewish funeral always do in the evening.
When they came near the dead at the gate, the widow’s only son was dead. The only son who was dead saw the only begotten Son.
The 2 large crowds were going to collide.
The funeral saw the Lord.
Death and Life met. Who will give way? Death bowed down to life.
First time the word Lord was used.
The Lord is also Yahweh
Jesus said to the widow, do not weep.
The first thing Jesus did when He rose from the dead was to wipe the woman’s tear Mary Madeline.
First mention of tear was Haggai over her son.
Mothers and sons and tears, the Lord knows it all.
Jesus is the Commander of life and dead
Our loved ones who left are in a place of perfect bliss and happiness.
It is not eternal missing. We will meet again.
Jesus came and touched the open coffin. Jesus is greater than the law.
He is greater than the defile
Jesus said to the young man, arise. He sat up and began to speak. He presented him to his mother.
He did not do a miracle and said follow Me. Those He said follow Me are those He appoint. He never made His miracle a reason to serve Him.
Elisha asked the woman whom son was dead, how is him and she said shalom.
She asked Elisha to go to her son.
Elisha had to pray.
Nain is the opposite side of Shunem where Elisha rose the boy from the dead.
Elisha’s name means my God saves
Yahweh is I (God) saves.
Elisha needed to do great exertion for the son to raise from dead but Jesus just needed to say Arise.
Genesis 49:14 (NASB)
Jesus made them resting places.
Moraine is a place of tragedies become double resting place.
The gate of hell will not prevail the Son of God, the Prince of Life
The world is following death and Jesus broke into the entire thing and re-route to life!
