Is Your Miracle Passing You By?



Livro: Is Your Miracle Passing You By?



And they came to Jericho; and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way—Mark 10:46–52

As you study the New Testament, you will find that the phrase “Thy faith hath made thee whole” can be found almost every time Jesus ministered to people. This shows us that it was not the power of Jesus alone that healed these people.

Although the power Jesus possessed was in operation, notice that Jesus didn’t say, “My power healed you.” Instead, He said, “Your faith did it!”

Jesus came into the world, the Word of God says, to seek and to save the lost and to set the captives free.The Miracle has come: He is here now to deliver and set you free!

Will the Miracle pass you by, or will you accept Him? It is up to you to receive what you need from God; it is not up to God, your family, your neighbor, or me.

In certain things we do, we are supposed to observe protocol. I learned this when I served in the U.S. Army as a young man. I gladly wore the Army green. I am very patriotic. I am glad to be an American. We may not have everything right, but we still have the best country there is, and I’m proud of it. I trust you are proud of the country you live in, too.

When I was in the Army, I learned to wait on protocol. You waited until you were told to speak to certain people. And there was a special way you did it. You didn’t go bursting into the colonel’s office without an invitation. When you had an invitation to go to the colonel’s office, you were ushered in by the sergeant. And there was a special way you were supposed to introduce yourself. You were supposed to come to attention and snap a salute: “Specialist Fourth Class Hagin reporting as ordered, sir.”

You stood there and didn’t say another word until he said something to you. If he didn’t say anything to you, you stood still until he got ready to say something.

And then you only gave a brief answer. That is protocol.

But I want to tell you if you wait on protocol to be introduced to Jesus, you’ll be in trouble, because the devil will see to it that that opportunity never comes. So if you want to find out about Jesus, you will have to take the initiative.

Why? Because God did away with all of that when Jesus went to Calvary. Before Calvary there was religious protocol. Before Calvary, you did not go into the presence of God. You went to a certain area of the Temple. The priest took your sacrifice from you. Then he went and slaughtered the animal and so forth.

The High Priest was the only one who was allowed to go into the presence of God. The people themselves never contacted God on a personal level. It always had to be through the religious protocol—the priesthood God had established so people could contact Him.

On the day Jesus Christ was crucified, however, the veil of the Temple that separated natural man from the presence of God was torn in two, and religious protocol no longer was necessary. A special introduction no longer was necessary. Mankind could go into the very presence of God through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ!
