Blessed Are Those Who Have Not Seen and Believed

Risen

Awhile back the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With Love and Gratitude, here is the  Gospel of John 20:19-31. 

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”

Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve,
was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
But he said to them,
“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger into the nailmarks
and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

Now a week later his disciples were again inside
and Thomas was with them.
Jesus came, although the doors were locked,
and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands,
and bring your hand and put it into my side,
and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Now, Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples
that are not written in this book.
But these are written that you may come to believe
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,
and that through this belief you may have life in his name.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus breathed life into his disciples and into all of us. For we were all given the Holy Spirit and the Light of Christ in our hearts. Faith gets God’s attention, and it is no different for the Son Jesus Christ, who loves us and reigns with God Himself, and is Lord over God’s Kingdom. Jesus, is extremely strong, yet gentle and believing in Him is something He is asking everyone through this conversation with Thomas the apostle. Jesus is still with us today and we can turn to him for anything!  His promises stand throughout time. 

Faith moves mountains, and believing in the Savior and knowing that with God all things are truly possible is believing in the One who sent the Lord, and in God’s Spiritual Truth, which will stand throughout eternity. 

Faith The Size of a Mustard Seed

Jesus

Awhile back, the angels guided me to post on the gospels on Sundays- with Love and Gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 17:5-10. – With a loving message and a channeled angel message. 

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
The Lord replied,
“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you would say to this mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

“Who among you would say to your servant
who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field,
‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’?
Would he not rather say to him,
‘Prepare something for me to eat.
Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink.
You may eat and drink when I am finished’?
Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?
So should it be with you.
When you have done all you have been commanded,
say, ‘We are unprofitable servants;
we have done what we were obliged to do.’”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus taught by example. Though he often spoke of faith, it was how he lived it (and His Authority) that touched the disciples. He demonstrated that it was necessary to have faith to cast out demons, to be forgiven, to experience the healings of limbs and spirit, (to bring life back into someone that had passed away, to rebuke the winds and so forth).  On a daily basis, the disciples saw the fruit of faith manifested int he life and ministry of Jesus. And so they blurted out, “increase our faith.” If faith was who Jesus was, they wanted faith; if faith enabled Jesus to do what he did, they wanted faith; if faith was the pathway to salvation and eternity with their Lord, they wanted faith. So they ask the only one they know to give it to them. Such a request could only come from those already imbued with substantial faith. 

In reply, Jesus says that, “faith the size of a mustard seed” is all that is needed to do the impossible. But Jesus doesn’t stop there, in further response to their request for greater faith, he illustrates the concrete form that faith takes. And that form is service. His no-nonsense example presents a master who expects his servants to do their work without having to thank them for simply doing their duty. Discipleship is its own reward. Those who enter the vineyard can’t stand around waiting to be crowned with laurel. Faith changes us into servants who do what is necessary- love, give witness, repent and forgive- no matter how hard the task. And they do it giving nothing in return. [see reference below]

“Those that have faith in the Lord will shine brightly in this life and the next. Faith is what all disciples are given as a Spiritual Gift from the Most High, Heavenly Father. Faith is what is needed to approach God, to ask for forgiveness and to perform works of the Lord. Disciples of any nation, race and creed , are all faith-filled with the Spirit of God inside them- and this message is for everyone. For all are given the Spiritual gift of faith through the Holy Spirit of God. And so it is, Faith can move mountains- thus saith the Lord!” ~the angels

Peace Will Help Shift Any Situation

Archangel Chamuel

Do not let your heart be troubled. In any situation in which you feel troubled, please know that all are welcome and loved by Heaven. Peace is what is natural to humans. Everyone intends peace throughout their day. Know that every prayer is answered without hesitation and your faith is what heals. Your natural healing abilities help to shift every situation into a healthy circumstance. If you feel frightened over someone’s behavior – or worried as to how they will react- trust your instincts and turn away from the situation. No one is being asked to stand still when there is anger or violence. However when there is a situation that needs healing- you have the power to lift this up in prayer first, releasing it to God and knowing that Heaven is helping you shift this into a positive outcome. Heaven is understanding when it comes to anger of course. Understanding when it comes to human nature- for all have been angry at some time or another. This is not what we mean. But when two people or a family have been upset at each other for a length of time, know that you can assist this person or people (even co-workers) with prayer- asking for blessings for each person involved. Surround each person with love- you can envision what this may look like and just imagine them and yourself surrounded with angels, and Archangels, or with angel light, or with love – the brightest love possible. Know this has been seen in Heaven the second you intend it. The angels will know what you are thinking. They will help you also- all you have to do is ask and the angels and Archangels will happily intervene in any circumstance  you ask about or intend for healing. You can also ask Jesus, who understand all things as he has also once been human, yet was always Divine. He will always help when asked. He himself has said, “Do not let your heart be troubled” and this was spoken through Divine Insight and stands for all time. In this age and always. Lift up your family or friends always. They may need a prayer and you could be the one God uses for prayer. Shift your awareness to Heaven , to God, to Jesus Christ- ask for a blessings and a healing over (_________) (name a person or a situation or both) – release it to God , knowing that this is being healed and see it as already healed. Peace is always the outcome when God helps. Love is always the answer in every situation and know that Peace will always follow. In  Jesus’ Name. And so it is beloved- amen, amen amen.

The angels are encouraging us to give all concerns to God:

“Make a list if needed. Sit down, in prayer and uplift all concerns to God. Stay focused on giving everything to The Most High always. In any circumstance and give thanks to Him for all things.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. PHIL 4:6-7
