Topic: I HAVE A MAN
Text: John 5:1-7
📖5….”And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
📖6….When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
📖7….The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.”
🔥Except you are connected to someone, you can hardly get to where you are going. Hence to either be healed, prospered, saved, and protected, you need to be connected to Jesus Christ, who has all these and more to give. Even to go to hell fire, you need to be connected to someone there, else, you won’t be granted access. Hence the Church came, to connect man to God through Jesus, so we can access God’s wellspring of mercy.
🔥🔥In John 5:1-7, the man who had been by the pool of Bethesda for 38 years, was not healed because he had no man to connect him to the God that troubled the water. Not because God wasn’t there, but he lacked connection. So many believers are not enjoying their faith benefits today, for same reason; they are neither connected to Christ (2 Cor 5:17), nor known by God (2 Tim 2:19).
🔥🔥🔥But by the gift of Jesus Christ to the world by God, every human being now has a man that will aid his healing. In John 5:26-27, God gave Jesus life and authority to execute judgement against all our needs. Yet in the Church, so many sick of diverse diseases are still moving from place to place looking for a prophet or miracle workers as their desired man. Some even move from the Church to the ministry of people with demonic spirits such as the woman in Acts 16:16-18, forgetting that it is only the Church that the gates of hell can’t prevail against Matt 16:16-18. Dearly beloved, learn from the impotent man of John 5:1-7, and be rest assured that, Jesus Christ is the man you need now. As you look away from physical helpers, Jesus will rescue you.
🙏O Lord, deny me the privilege of having a man in hell fire in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, prove to me that since I have you, I have no need for another man in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My father my father, as you made Joseph a Prime Minister in Egypt even though he had no man, make me greater since I have your Son, in Jesus’ name.
