THE CONCERNS OF A DEAD MAN

LUKE 16:23  – AND IN HELL HE LIFT UP HIS EYES, BEING IN TORMENTS AND SEETH ABRAHAM AFAR OFF, AND LAZARUS IN HIS BOSOM.

LUKE 16: 24 –  AND HE CRIED AND SAID FATHER ABRAHAM, HAVE MERCY ON ME, AND SEND LAZARUS, THAT HE MAY DIP THE  TIP OF HIS FINGER IN WATER, AND COOL MY TONGUE: FOR I AM TORMENTED IN THIS PLACE.

THE CONCERNS OF THIS MAN HAVE CHANGED.

HIS FORMER CONCERN WAS TO MAKE MORE MONEY AND ENJOY LIFE AND FAMILY. HIS CONCERN WAS TO PREPARE FOR LIFE AND NOT DEATH.

WE READ IN A PREVIOUS CHAPTER ABOUT A PRODIGAL SON WHO CAME TO HIMSELF IN A FOREIGN LAND AND WENT HOME TO HIS FATHER. HE WAS DEAD AND ALIVE AGAIN, HE WAS LOST AND WAS FOUND.

THE PRODIGAL SON CAME TO HIMSELF AND WENT HOME TO BE WITH HIS FATHER BEFORE HE DIED.

THE RICH MAN CAME TO HIMSELF IN HELL.

PRAYER LIFE CHANGES IN HELL, IF A PERSON GOES TO HELL HE WILL PRAY A LOT.

THE RICH MAN’S CONCERNS CHANGED IN HELL.

HIS PRAYER WAS FOR A DROP OF WATER ON HIS TONGUE.

LUKE 16:27  – THEN HE SAID, I PRAY THEE THEREFORE, FATHER, THAT THOU WOULDEST SEND HIM TO MY FATHERS HOUSE:

LUKE16:28 – FOR I HAVE FIVE BRETHREN THAT HE MIGHT TESTIFY UNTO THEM, LEST THEY ALSO COME INTO THIS PLACE OF TORMENT. 

THIS MAN IN HELL HAD A CHANGE OF CONCERN, BUT IT WAS TO LATE.

HE PRAYED FOR A WITNESS TO BE SENT TO HIS FATHER HOUSE, TO HIS BROTHERS WHO WERE LOST. 

TESTIFY TO THEM HE PRAYED.

THIS MAN IN HELL HAD NEGLECTED THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION IN ANY ONE’S LIFE, HE REJECTED HIS CREATOR, HE HAD CHOSEN TO SEEK THE TEMPORAL INSTEAD OF THE ETERNAL.

HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE WITNESS TO HIS BROTHER’S. SOMEBODY HAS TO BREAK THE MOLD IN A FAMILY OF LOST PEOPLE. PEOPLE WHO PUT NO VALUE ON GOD AND THE LIFE OF GOD, USUALLY LEAD THEIR FAMILY TO HELL WITH THEM. THEY CHOOSE SPORTS OVER CHURCH,THEY CHOOSE SIN OVER RIGHTEOUSNESS. THEY NEVER READ THEIR BIBLE IF THEY OWN ONE. THEY SELDOM IF EVER GO TO CHURCH. THEY TESTIFY TO THEIR FAMILY THROUGH CONDUCT.

ITS NOT THAT THEY HAVEN’T HEARD THE MESSAGE THEY JUST REFUSE IT. THEY MIGHT NOT EXPRESS IT VERBALLY BUT WITH THEIR CONDUCT. THEY MAKE THEIR OWN RULES OF LIFE.

LAZARUS WAS A BELIEVER THAT WAS LAID AT THE GATE OF THE RICH MAN DAILY.

IF THE RICH MAN HAD STOPPED LONG ENOUGH TO TALK TO LAZARUS, HE WOULD HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE MESSIAH.

THE RICH MAN COULD HAVE WENT TO HIS BROTHER’S HOUSE’S AND TESTIFIE D ABOUT THE ONE WHO AROSE FROM THE DEAD.

THE ONLY MESSAGE THAT WOULD KEEP THIS MAN AND HIS FAMILY OUT OF HELL WAS IGNORED.

HE WAS NOT IN HELL BECAUSE HE WAS RICH, I PERSONALLY KNOW RICH PEOPLE THA LOVE JESUS AND I KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT RICH WHO LOVE JESUS, BUT I ALSO KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT RICH THAT COULD CARE LESS ABOUT JESUS.

BEING SAVED HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR FINANICIAL CONDITION. BEING RELIGIOUS DOESN’T MAKE YOU SAVED.

PEOPLE THAT REJECT THE MESSAGE OF JESUS ARE LOST AND ON THEIR WAY TO HELL, THEY WILL KNOW THE TRUTH IN HELL AND WILL BE TORMENTED OVER THIER FAMILY COMING THERE.

PEOPLE MAKE THIS STATEMENT, IT IS A FALSE STATEMENT, BUT THEY MAKE IT, THEY SAY THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO HEAVEN. WHO GAVE THEY THE AUTHORITY TO SAY THAT? OUR CREATOR IS THE AUTHORITY, WHEN HE SAYS IT IS LAW, AND HE SAID I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.

JESUS PROVED HIS AUTHORITY WHEN HE AROSE FROM THE GRAVE. JESUS IS THE ONLY LAMB OF GOD WHO DIED FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD.

ALL RELIGIONS CAN NOT PROMISE FORGIVENESS FOR SIN. IF YOU HAVE NOT ACCEPTED JESUS BY FAITH AND LIVE IN THAT FAITH, YOU WILL BE PRAYING IN HELL CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.

DON’T LET DECEPTION SEND YOU TO HELL, DON’T LET REBELLION AND PRIDE SEND YOU TO HELL. HUMBLE YOURSELF AND CALL UPON JESUS TO SAVE YOU.

PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU DIFFERENT THAN GOD’S HOLY WORD, DON’T HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK FOR HIM. 

I TELL YOU AGAIN BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE WORD OF GOD, THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED, BUT BY THE NAME OF JESUS.

PRAY NOW AND ASK HIM INTO YOUR HEART AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR, TESTIFY TO YOUR FAMILY AND IF YOU LIVE IN A NATION THAT ALLOWS CHURCH ASSEMBLIES START ATTENDING CHURCH. IF BIBLES ARE AVAILABLE BUY A BIBLE IF YOU CAN. IF CHURCHES ARE NOT POSSIBLE SERVE JESUS WITH YOU WHOLE HEART.

I WRITE THIS MESSAGE WITH GREAT LOVE AND HUMILITY, FOR IF WASN’T FOR JESUS REVEALING HIMSELF TO ME, I WOULD STILL BE LOST AND GOING TO HELL. BECAUSE OF THE LOVE OF JESUS I HAVE A GREAT CONCERN FOR THE LOST.

LISTEN – PART II

LISTEN WITH UNDERSTANDING:

NEHEMIAH 8:2 – AND EZRA THE PRIEST BROUGHT THE LAW BEFORE THE CONGREGATION BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, AND ALL THAT COULD HEAR WITH UNDERSTANDING…

SO WHEN WE LISTEN TO HEAR, WE CAN DO IT WITH UNDERSTANDING. TO UNDERSTAND, MEANS TO COMPREHAND OR DISCERN.

WE NEED TO LISTEN TO GOD:

GOD DOESN’T HIDE ANYTHING FROM US.

MARK 4:22-25 – FOR THERE IS NOTHING HID, WHICH SHALL NOT BE MANIFESTED; NEITHER WAS ANYTHING KEPT SECRET, BUT THAT IT SHOULD COME ABROAD.

IF ANY MAN HAVE EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR.

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, TAKE HEED WHAT MEASURE YE MEET, IT SHALL BE MEASURED TO YOU: AND UNTO YOU THAT HEAR  SHALL MORE BE GIVEN.

FOR HE THAT HATH, TO HIM SHALL BE GIVEN: AND HE THAT HATH NOT, FROM HIM SHALL BE TAKEN EVEN THAT HE HATH.

GOD DESIRES FOR US TO HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY TO US.

THE ONLY WAY WE CAN HEAR FROM GOD IS TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM IN OUR SECRET PLACE, READ HIS WORD, AND MEDITATE ON IT, AND LISTEN FOR THAT STILL SMALL VOICE.

THE MORE WE HEAR FROM GOD, THE MORE WE WANT TO HEAR.

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL OPEN OUR UNDERSTANDING OR COMPREHENSION OF WHAT HE IS TRYING TO GET ACROSS TO US IF WE WILL ONLY LISTEN.

I’M SURE THAT THOSE WHO HAD GOOD PARENTS: WISH THEY HAD LISTENED MORE TO THE ADVISE THEIR PARENTS GAVE THEM WHILE GROWING UP. WE WOULD HAVE MISSED SOME OF THE TROUBLES AND HEARTACHES WE WENT THROUGH, HAD WE LISTENED.

YOU ARE PROBABLY THINKING OF SOME OF THEM RIGHT NOW.

WELL, LISTENING TO WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVEN WHAT OUR PARENTS HAVE TO SAY.

HUMAN BEINGS CAN ONLY REALLY KNOW BY EXPERIENCE; BUT GOD KNOWS THE FRONT, BACK, AND IN-BETWEEN OF EVERYTHING.

HE IS OMNISCIENCE, ALL KNOWING: 

I JOHN 3:20b – GOD IS GREATER THAN OUR HEART,  AND KNOWETH ALL THINGS.

GOD HAS FOREKNOWLEDGE:

ISAIAH 48:3,5 – I HAVE DECLARED THE FORMER THINGS FROM THE BEGINNING; AND THEY WENT FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH, AND I SHOWED THEM; I DID THEM SUDDENLY, AND THEY CAME TO PASS.

I HAVE EVEN FROM THE BEGINNING DECLARED IT TO THEE; BEFORE IT CAME TO PASS I SHOWED IT THEE: LEST THOU SHOULDEST SAY, MINE IDOL HATH DONE THEM, AND MINE GRAVEN IMAGE, AND MINE MOULTON IMAGE, HATH COMMANDED THEM.

GOD DESIRES US TO LISTEN TO HIM, AND HE WILL MAKE KNOWN TO US HIS PLANS FOR US. THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE THE ANSWERS.

VERSE 17 – THUS SAYETH THE LORD, THY REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; I AM THE LORD THY GOD WHICH TEACHETH THEE TO PROFIT (GAIN), WHICH LEADETH THEE BY THE WAY THAT THOU SHOULDEST GO. THIS IS JESUS SPEAKING THROUGH ISAIAH.

GOD WILL LISTEN TO US:

DAVID PRAYED TO GOD IN PSALM 4:1,3 – HEAR ME WHEN I CALL, O GOD OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS: THOU HAST ENLARGED ME WHEN I WAS IN DISTRESS; HAVE MERCY ON ME, AND HEAR MY PRAYER.

BUT KNOW THAT THE LORD HATH SET APART HIM THAT IS GODLY FOR HIMSELF: THE LORD WILL HEAR WHEN I CALL UNTO HIM.

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL THAT THE SUPREME BEING, ALMIGHTY GOD, WILL LISTEN TO US WHEN WE CALL. DAVID IS SAYING, THE LORD HEARD HIM WHEN HE PRAYED, AND HAS RELIEVED HIM FROM HIS DISTRESS.

RECKLESS FAITH

MARK 5: 25-29 – AND A CERTAIN WOMAN, WHICH HAD AN ISSUE OF BLOOD TWELVE YEARS.

AND HAD SUFFERED MANY THINGS OF MANY PHYSICIANS, AND SPENT ALL THAT SHE HAD, AND WAS NOTHING BETTERED, BUT RATHER GREW WORSE.

WHEN SHE HAD HEARD OF JESUS, CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT.

FOR SHE SAID, IF I MAY TOUCH BUT HIS CLOTHES, I SHALL BE WHOLE.

AND STRAIGHTWAY THE FOUNTAIN OF HER BLOOD WAS DRIED UP; AND SHE FELT IN HER BODY THAT SHE WAS HEALED OF THAT PLAGUE.

THIS WOMAN KNEW WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE SICK.

THIS WOMAN KNEW WHAT IT LIKE TO GET HER HOPES UP AND BE DISAPPOINTED.

I KNOW WHAT GOES ON IN THE MIND OF A SICK PERSON.

I ALSO KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE HEALED.

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR MY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD, EVEN WHEN I WAS SICK.  GOD IS GOOD TO US ALL THE TIME. THE DEVIL IS OUR ENEMY NOT GOD.

HEALING IS ALWAYS AVIALABLE TO US, SOMETIMES IT IS INSTANT, SOMETIMES IT IS PROGRESSIVE. 

I PREFER THE INSTANT, BUT WILL BE HAPPY WITH THE PROGRESSIVE HEALING.

THIS WOMAN HAD A SICK BODY, BUT A STRONG WILL. A STRONG WILL IS A MAJOR  FACTOR IN RECEVING ANYTHING FROM THE LORD. 

SHE ALSO HAD PATIENCE, AND DETERMINATION.

HER WILL TO BE HEALED STAYED STRONG,  WHILE HER BODY WAS STILL SICK.

SHE BECAME RECK-LESS IN HER FAITH. ACCORDING TO JEWISH LAW, HER CONDITION OF BLEEDING, FORBID HER FROM BEING IN PUBLIC.

RECK-LESS FAITH CAN CAUSE YOU TO FORGET WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT. SOME HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT HEALING IS NOT FOR TODAY. YOU NEED TO FORGET THAT. IT IS A LIE STRAIGHT OUT OF RELIGIOUS TRADITION. GET RECK-LESS AND RECEIVE.

THIS WOMAN SAID IF I CAN TOUCH, BUT HIS CLOTHES, I SHALL BE WHOLE.  HER WILL SAID, WHAT HER WILL BELIVED, THIS IS IMPORTANT. WHAT A STATEMENT, SHE DIDN’T ASK FOR JESUS TO TOUCH HER, HE DID TOUCH A LOT OF PEOPLE FOR HEALING, BUT SHE WAS DETERMINED TO TOUCH HIM.

SHE KNEW SHE WAS TOUCHING THE WORD MADE FLESH.

I HAVE BEEN HEALED, TOUCHED BY THE POWER OF GOD THROUGH TOUCHING JESUS IN HIS WORD. BY HIS STRIPES I AM HEALED, HIS WILL FOR ME IS HIS WORD FOR ME. IF I CAN BELIEVE HIS WORD FOR THE SALVATION OF MY SOUL, I CAN BELIEVE HIS WORD FOR MY HEALING. SALVATION FOR MY SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY.

EVERY WORD, EVER ACTION OF THIS WOMAN WAS FAITH ORIENTED.

SHE HAD EVERY REASON TO GIVE UP, BUT SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP.

IN DOING THAT SHE WAS REFUSING THE SICKNESS.

MARK 5:34 – AND HE SAID UNTO HER, DAUGHTER, THY FAITH HATH MADE THEE WHOLE, GO IN PEACE, AND BE WHOLE OF THY PLAGUE.

SHE GOT WHAT SHE BELIEVED FOR, SHE PRESSED THROUGH THE CROWD.

THERE WILL BE OBSTACLES THAT YOU HAVE TO PRESS THROUGH; SYMPTOM’S THAT SCREAM OUT AT YOUR FAITH; WORDS OF FACT FROM PHYSICANS, TRY TO IMPART FEAR AND UNBELIEF; PAIN THAT SCREAMS, “NO THIS IS NOT FOR YOU, YOU CANT BE HEALED.”

THE WOMANS FAITH SCREAMED LOUDER THAT THE SICKNESS, I SHALL BE WHOLE.

THE ONLY ONE IN THE CROWD THAT TOUCHED JESUS IN THE PRESS, WAS THIS WOMAN’S RECK-LESS FAITH THAT WAS AIMED BY HER WILL TO RECEIVE.

SHE KNEW SHE HAD THE RIGHT MAN. THE ONLY ONE IN THE CROWD THAT COULD EVER HELP HER WAS JESUS. I SHALL BE WHOLE SHE SAID. THE TOUCH OF FAITH FIXED HER PROBLEM, THE TOUCH OF FAITH WILL FIX EVERY PROBLEM.

EVERY TIME I READ ABOUT THIS WOMAN, WHAT SHE DID AND WHAT SHE GOT, CREATES FAITH IN ME, IT CREATES STRONG WILL INSIDE ME NOT TO BE DENIED WHATEVER IS PAID FOR, THAT BELONGS TO ME.

ALIGN YOUR TALK AND YOUR FAITH; THEY GO TOGETHER AND WILL MOVE YOUR MOUNTAIN’S. AMEN, GLORY TO MY KING JESUS.

OPEN HEAVEN

MATT. 7:7 – ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU, SEEK, AND YE SHALL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU.

THE DOOR TO THIS GREAT PROMISE IS JESUS. ASKING MUST BE DONE, BECAUSE WE HEARD SOMETHING OR READ SOMETHING, STATING,THAT WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR IS THE WILL OF GOD.

THE BIBLE SAYS  THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL ASK, OR CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED. IF WE BELIEVE THIS, WE CONFESS JESUS AS OUR SAVIOUR, AND ASK HIM TO COME INTO OUR HEART.

NOW THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF ASKING, WHEN JESUS COMES INTO OUR HEART, WE BECOME COVENANT CHILDREN, THIS IS THE DOOR WE OPEN BY FAITH TO LEGALLY ASK.

THE NEXT STEP IS SEEKING THE PERSON OF  GOD HIMSELF. SEEKING THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS CHRIST BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS INSIDE OF NOW, DIRECTING OUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY. THIS IS THE GREATEST, MOST REWARDING JOURNEY OF YOUR LIFE. SEEKING THE PERSON OF CHRIST. MANY PEOPLE HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, BUT DON’T KNOW HIM. THEY KNOW ABOUT HIM, THEY HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM, BUT DON’T REALLY HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. YOU CAN ONLY GET TO KNOW PEOPLE, THROUGH SEEKING A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.

SEEKING THE LORD WILL BECOME YOUR PASSION. I DON’T WANT TO JUST READ A BOOK AND KNOW ALL ABOUT HIM, I DESIRE TO KNOW THE PERSON, NOT JUST THE HISTORY OF THAT PERSON.

THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WE CAN SEEK THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS OUR LORD, WE CAN SEEK JESUS, WE CAN SEEK THE HOLY SPIRIT.

MY PRAYER IS  SO OFTEN LIKE THIS: HOLY SPIRIT TEACH ME HOW TO HELP PEOPLE, DID JESUS SAY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR TEACHER. HOLY SPIRIT SHOW ME WHAT YOU ARE DOING IN THIS WORSHIP SERVICE, SO I CAN FLOW WITH YOU. I SEEK YOU LORD, SHOW ME WHAT YOUR WILL IS TODAY FOR MY LIFE, CONNECT ME WITH THE PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS THAT ARE PURPOSED BY YOU THIS DAY.

WHAT A TRIP, WHAT A JOURNEY, WE HAVE IN LIFE SEEKING OUT THE LORD OF PURPOSE, THE ONLY WAY WE CAN ACKNOWLEDGE HIM IN ALL OUR WAYS, IS TO MAKE HIM THE LORD OF OUR WAYS. ONLY THROUGH SEEKING HIM CAN HE DIRECT OUR PATHS.

I LOVE THE LORD SO MUCH, THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS PUT A PASSION IN ME TO SEEK THE PERSON OF GOD, MY LORD, MY SAVIOUR,MY KING. 

I DON’T SEEK HIM TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, THATS RELIGION, I SEEK HIM TO KNOW HIM, TO BE INTIMATE WITH HIM.

THIS IS THE JOY OF MY SALVATION, ASKING, SEEKING AND KNOCKING. WHAT A PROMISE, WHAT A SAVIOUR.

KNOCKING IS THE LEGAL PART OF ASKING, SEEKING. THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT ASKING, SEEKING AND KNOCKING IS THAT TO DO ANY OF THE THREE STEPS, WE MUST MAKE CONTACT WITH GOD. THE WHOLE MESSAGE OF THE BIBLE POINTS US TO OUR CREATOR.

AGAIN, KNOCKING IS THE LEGAL PART OF ASKING, SEEKING AND KNOCKING. 

IN PRAYER, IT IS LIKE GOING BEFORE THE GREAT JUDGE OF THE UNIVERSE, HAVING LEGAL PROFF OF PETITION. BRING SCRIPTURE TO HIS REMBERANCE, QUOTING HIS WORD BEFORE HIM, THE PROMISES OF GOD, THE WORD OF THE KINGDOM. SAYING LORD THIS IS THE GROUNDS FOR MY RIGHT TO REQUEST THIS TO BE DONE FOR ME. YOU PROMISED THIS .

HE BOUND HIMSELF BY HIS WORD. WE HONOR HIM WHEN WE HONOR HIS WORD. HIS WORD IS TRUTH, THE MOMENT HE SPEAKS IT, IT BECOMES TRUTH. IT BECOMES LEGAL, IT IS LAW.

KNOCKING IS REMINDING HIM OF HIS PROMISE. SOMETIMES WE ARE IN TROUBLE AND NEED HIS HELP AND WE QUOTE HIM HIS WORD AND THE JUDGE SAYS, I SAID THIS BUT THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO THIS, MY PART AND YOUR PART, I SAID I WOULD DO THIS, BUT YOU MUST DO THIS. YOU HAVEN’T DONE YOUR PART, YOU DID THE OPPOSITE. THEN WE MUST ASK FOR THE MERCY OF THE COURT AND CORRECT OR REPENT OF OUR DISOBEDIENCE. THANK THE JUDGE FOR MERCY AND TRUTH. IF THERE WAS NO MERCY AND ONLY TRUTH WE ARE IN TROUBLE. 

ALL THREE ASK, SEEK, AND KNOCK HAS A PURPOSE, EVERYTHING GOD DOES, HE DOES IT FOR MAN, TO BRING MAN TO HIM AND TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH MANKIND, HIS CREATION. HE LOVES US, DON’T REJECT HIM OR IGNORE HIM. ASK SEEK AND KNOCK YOU WILL LOVE THE JOURNEY.

FAITH CHANGED FATE (Kingdom Law)

Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God,and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I Chronicles  4:9,10 – And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that though thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thy hand might be with me,and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!  And God granted him that which he requested.

Jabez means sorrow. Out of a boring list of genealogies  comes a man marked by his mother. For some reason sorrow was in the life of the mother, maybe he was a twin and the other child died, who knows. But his mother tried to pass a heritage to him that no one in their right mind would want. Every time she called his name, she was speaking sorrow over him. Her vision for him was a life of sorrow. He was born in sorrow. Sometimes great things are birthed in a time of sorrow. Bad things don’t have to stick to us. Somebody else doesn’t control our future. Even our past doesn’t control our future. This guy named sorrow, refused to accept this prophecy. In these Scriptures, God interrupted Himself, and put these two powerful verses in the Bible. Jabez was of the lineage of Judah, but his immediate family was not listed: just him. Faith does something to God. It moves Him powerfully. All your family may be rotten to the core, but you don’t have to be. Jabez’s life became a contradiction of his name. Jabez called on God who can change all things. ELOHEEM – Supreme God, the One that speaks creation – “Let there be light.” He is a speaking, creating God. Jabez called on ELOHEEM. Somebody told him, God will bless you if you seek Him. Jabez believed that God was God, and a rewarder of them that seek Him. Jabez was more honourable than anyone in his family. He chose to call on God. (Honourable in the Greek, kabad, means Glory; to be heavy.) This man, Jabez, had more of the glory or weighty presence of God in his life than all his brethren. He was a worshiper. He prayed, bless me indeed. He knew that God was a blesser to those who sought Him by faith. All blessing and enlargement begins from a desire to seek Him. Enlargement is a fruit of that blessing. Jabez’s faith changed his fate, enlargement means increase. The blessing of seeking God is enlargement. We begin to apply truth in our lives, and operate in the principles of God’s spiritual laws, we begin to seek first the King and His kingdom.

My coasts are borders enlarged, and my capacity to receive more. My faith is increased.

Psalms 119:32 – I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

Reference – Isaiah 54:1-5 – As Jabez did, receive the blessing of enlargement.
