Jesus said unto him, “Thomas, because you have seen ME, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Gods love is amazing especially in the scripture that says God commendeth HIS love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
So I believe when Adam sinned and fell from grace his sin continues on through the birth and death of humanity, as we have to discuss the fall when we discuss the state of the world. As Adams sin foreshadows and projects, the love of GOD shown on the cross, at Calvary, backdrops and foreshadows as well.
Without this being true, everyone that believed GOD and lived in righteousness, including David, Moses and Elijah would’ve died in sin and gone to hell because, without the shedding of blood there can be no remission of sins.()
But at this point JESUS had been crucified.
So the blood has been shed...
And it covers...
And what’s beautiful here is that the blood even covers Thomas, who was a doubter. The gospel called Thomas, “Twin”, which indicates that this man had one body physically, but naturally he had 2 minds...
I have seen twins... I have friends that are twins and it’s almost impossible to tell them apart.
But mentally, my friends that are parts of twin sets are far apart... they would always tell me, “don’t think for a second that you can guess my opinion just by hearing my sisters because we don’t think alike at all.
So one man, 1 body, 2 mindsets that are completely different so he probably had a few other things going on that accompany multiple personalities.
No psychiatrists during that time.
We say he was a doubter but where in the word do you see Thomas’ name mentioned anywhere else?
I couldn’t find Thomas speaking up for the gospel or walking the straight and narrow?
How is it possible that a man that didn’t come in close contact with JESUS, did 10 times the man that walked with JESUS personally did?
How is it that I believe Thomas, and HES standing right in front of you, speaking to you...
You have walked for miles with HIM, 3125 to be exact...
And you still must touch...
And I still must touch HIM.
I’m like the woman with the issue of blood.
So, it’s ok Thomas...
To our cautionary tale of the day.
His story is very important, because on the days when I am sick and I take my eyes off the Saviour, GOD is saying, that even me....
With the issue of blood
Let me know HIM?
Please see me my Saviour...
I need thee LORD,
Oh I need thee
Every hour LORD
I need thee,
Oh Bless me LORD
Fill my alabaster box GOD
Pour your love gentle, kind sweet
Mixture on the box that I place
On the altar
Extend your scepter Father
As I kneel before you
Pulling on YOU for a sip of your living water
Be bread to my Word hungry soul
Meat to every part of me LORD
WATER to quench my thirst GOD
Dew just can’t DO ME ANYMORE
YOU are the lover of my soul
YOU are the captain of my ship
I see the LIVING WATER ahead of me GOD
And I run in, just to take a little dip
I get out
But I never dry off you see
Because I know the enemy is always on my tail
But IVE GOT YOU GOD!
And YOU COMPLETE ME!
No weapon shall ever prosper against me!
I am the head and not the tail
Ahead and not behind
And NOT BENEATH!
Thank you LORD because YOU are always here!
You are THE ONLY GOD!
The REAL and true GOD!
You never leave nor forsake me!
