Jesus the Great High Priest
Heb. 4:14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is
passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of
our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain
mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
and sisters, when we need a man in our difficult, terrible, situations,
conditions, or circumstances we are fully commanded to call on a man, who is
not just any man, but absolutely both Man and God. Call on Jesus, Lord and
Saviour who has all power and authority in heaven and earth.
you are sick, call on Jesus, He will be with you on the bed of languishing:
you feel forgotten and all alone, call on Jesus: If you are riddled with life-long fears of
everyone and everything, call on Jesus:
and sisters don’t worry, call on Jesus. Don’t worry Keep calling on Jesus in
prayer and trust Him all the time for all the time God is good, and God is good
all the time. He is always there to help. Love Him with ALL your heart, trust and obey Him in all
things. Thank Jesus, worship Jesus, praise Jesus, and take all your needs
to God who is ever watching over you.

Christ knew that the impotent man needed someone to care about him as much if
not more than he needed healing.

knew the impotent couldn’t come running to Him for help, so Jesus came to the
impotent man. Jesus could have commanded the angel to come and heal the
impotent man. Jesus could have taken the impotent man to the pool. Instead the One
through whom God made the worlds spoke: Heb. 1: 1God, who at sundry times and
in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in
these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all
things, by whom also he made the worlds…
Psa 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their
spoke the first time to the impotent man with a question, said with kindness
and compassion. The second time Jesus commanded the impotent man and his weak
joints became whole, and obeyed Jesus. The man he needed to help him had come
at last and gave him strength and he took up his bed and walked out of and away
from thirty -eight years of lying in a sick bed. He needed a man to help him
and Jesus is that man.
and sisters, if you or any of us ever need a man to help- call on Jesus.
you can’t run to Jesus don’t worry, Jesus will come to you, in His omniscience He ever dwells in your
spirit with God and the Holy Spirit. If you are too infirm to even pray- don’t
worry, the Holy Spirit will make intercession for you before the throne of God with
groaning’s that can’t be uttered: Rom 8:26 Likewise the
Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as
we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which
cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind
of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the
will of God.
Psa 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart
before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Brothers and sisters, the word of God
is exclusive and explicit in its proclamation, absolute in its application, and
eternally final in its declaration of salvation by the grace of God alone by
faith in Jesus Christ alone. Let us never let it slip at any time brethren:
From the Bible.org
Does, you and your household, (Acts 16:31) mean if am
saved my family will be too?
Some wish to prove from this text
that when the head of a family comes to faith, he can be assured that his whole
family will follow him in faith. There is no such promise here. If you read
these verses carefully you will see that the offer of salvation by faith in
Jesus was offered to the jailer, and to his whole household. The message of
salvation was proclaimed to the jailer, and his whole household. The message of
salvation was believed by the jailer, and his whole household. And as the
jailer professed his faith by being baptized, so did the others in his
household. The offer was to the jailer and all of his household. The acceptance
of this offer was by the jailer and his whole household, but there is no
guarantee that this will always be so.
The words Paul spoke, when rendered
literally, would read something like this: “You (singular) believe on the Lord
Jesus Christ and you (singular) will be saved, you (singular) and your
household.” Paul is proclaiming the gospel to the Philippian jailer. He tells him
that if he believes in the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior, then he will be
saved. This offer is not for him alone, however, but for his whole household as
well. If they believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, they will be saved as well. The
promise is not made that if he, as the head of the household believes, his
entire household is saved by his faith.
Notice that in verse 32 Luke
records that Paul and Silas preached the “word of the Lord” to him, along with
his house. Verse 34 then informs us that the jailer had come to believe, along
with his entire household.
The gospel is offered to the
jailer, and to his household. The gospel is preached to him, and his household.
The gospel is received/believed by the jailer and his entire household.
Note these words in Jeremiah 31: 29
“In those days they will not say again, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
And the children’s teeth are set on edge.’ 30 “But everyone will die for his
own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge.
31 “Behold, days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new
covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,
Ezekiel 18 is perhaps even more
emphatic, separating the destiny of parent and child. A godly parent may have
an ungodly (unsaved) child; an ungodly parent may have a believing and faithful
child. The destiny of fathers and sons is independently determined.
In 1 Corinthians chapter 7 we are
told that the unbelieving mate is “sanctified” by the believing mate (7:14),
but note that they are still called an unbeliever. The issue here is not the
salvation of one family member due to the faith of another, but the privileged
status and blessing that the unbeliever has by living in the household of the
believer. God’s blessings spill over on the rest of the family, but this does
not include the blessing of salvation. Paul goes on to ask in verse 16, “For
how do you know, of wife, whether you will bring your husband to salvation?”
Paul is saying that it is best for the believing partner to remain married to
the unbeliever, if they are willing for the believer to remain, because there
are certain blessings which come upon the unbeliever. He goes on to say that if
the unbelieving mate does not wish to remain in that marriage, the believer is
to let them go, for how can they assume that they can bring the unbeliever to
All of this is to say that the
Bible has a very consistent answer to your question. Every individual is lost
because of their sins, and is saved if and when they trust in Jesus Christ for
their salvation. This is why our Lord speaks of “hating” one’s father, mother,
brothers, and sisters:
26 “If anyone comes to Me, and does
not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and
sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. 27 “Whoever does
not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple (Luke
We must love Him, obey Him, and
serve Him, above all others, including those closest to us.

impotent man, brothers and sisters, certainly wanted to be healed, but in his explanation, he tells
Jesus why this has not happened and is not likely to happen without help of
another person, a man. The impotent man had a limited understanding of the
source of healing. The impotent man thought the source of healing lay in the
healing angel and getting to the pool at the right time, after the angel had
troubled the water. He did not know that the man he so desperately longed for,
hoped would come and help him, was the One asking Him the question. The impotent
man did not know that the man who questioned him is greater than the angels,
greater than all. This man who questioned well understood and knew the grief,
anguish, pain, torment, and suffering, in the impotent man’s heart:
Psa 31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a
persistent cruel and discomforting indifference of others to his condition and
needs made the impotent man feel as though he was invisible, already dead and
buried. Surely these countless blows of messages from callused people over the
years had told him he did not matter, was not worth notice and it had broken
his spirit into a thousand pieces. The unseen injury to the spirit of a person
that kills hope in one’s heart can be just as harmful and deadly as physical blows
Psa 69:20 Reproach hath
broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take
pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
Psa 109:22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within
The impotent man had received knock out blows on the battle field of life. He lay there helpless, wounded in spirit and heart, all the people did was step over his body as though avoiding trash in the road. Perhaps his lips were no longer able to pray for a man to help him, and only his heart kept sending up emergency flares to God for help.

John 5: 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. 8
Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9 And immediately the
man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was
Christ in His compassion and as Creator, knew his creation was really sick and
helpless. Jesus never makes any inquiry or inferences that the impotent man was
somehow to blame for not being healed in thirty-eight years. Anyone suffering
incurable debilitating illness, those in the health professions, anyone having
to deal with severely sick family or friends, done hospital, nursing home or
sick room visitations are well aware, that people have to have help in these
Jesus Christ knew all about this impotent man and his terrible
helplessness, in every sense of the word. Jesus knew how the impotent man felt
watching others getting healed, getting help from others to do so, while he languished
all alone, in the midst of the crowd, friendless and helpless. The chronic experience
of the brutality, and utter harshness, and abandonment of being totally
ignored, overlooked, un cared about and devoid of any significant human contact
had to be as crushing as the lingering impotence of the man.
impotent man’s answer to the question Jesus asked of Him might seemingly appear
totally off topic to some. Surely, brethren, some might have urged the impotent
man to say yes already, forget the chit chat.
In the Greek language, Jesus’s question to the
impotent man would be rendered similar to this: Will you be resolved,
determined, have delight and love to be restored to health and be made whole?

WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?
5: 3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered,
waiting for the moving of the water. 4 For an angel went down at a certain
season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the
troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
might have little sympathy for the impotent man. How could he not have managed
to get to the pool to get healed in 38 years? We don’t know, brothers and sisters. We know that somehow he managed to
eat, managed to get food over the course of the years. Did he ask for
help and everyone refused him? Did he just not bother to ask for help? Many questions come to mind about the impotent man, was he just lazy? Some would frankly think anybody hanging around 38 years and never made it to the pool in time just did not want to be healed. Then the "if it were me-ers" might say they would have stayed at the edge of the pool to just roll into the water at the first sign after the angel troubled the water.

Titus 2: 11After
all, God's saving kindness has appeared for the benefit of all people. 12It
trains us to avoid ungodly lives filled with worldly desires so that we can
live self-controlled, moral, and godly lives in this present world. 13At the
same time we can expect what we hope for-the appearance of the glory of our
great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 14He gave himself for us to set us free
from every sin and to cleanse us so that we can be his special people who are
enthusiastic about doing good things. 15Tell these things to the believers.
Encourage and correct them, using your full authority. Don't let anyone
ignore you. GOD'S WORD translation
The Bible is so absolutely clear in how we as God’s people
are commanded to live as Christians. Brothers and sisters, the Bible refreshes
our minds, and keeps us walking in the way that God commands, not the way of
the world. The truth of the Bible blows away man centered on worshipping
himself, (this includes women too), making allowances to serve himself
instead of God, and following in the ways of the world.
Beloveds, let us give thanks for our wonderful Saviour,
who keeps and guides all of His people who by Him have entered into His
straight and narrow gate. I kiss His nail scarred hands and thank Him for every
loving blow of discipline He gives me out of love, and keeps me and indeed, all of His people on His path of
righteousness. I also thank Jesus Christ my Lord heartily for all of His
love, guidance, teaching, wisdom, rescue, instruction, kindness and continual
mercy He pours out continually on me and all of His people.
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for
wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many
there be which go in thereat:

NOTICE FROM JESUS CHRIST
24: 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this
gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all
nations; and then shall the end come.

misfortunes and trials to hold fast to one's faith in Christ; to endure, bear
bravely and calmly ill treatments.
is the great divide, dearly beloveds, Christians will continue to abide and
preach the gospel to the end and are saved through Him. This is by the power of God and His
eternal promise: Jude 1: 24 Now unto him that is able
to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of
his glory with exceeding joy, 25To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and
majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. American King James Version

of the rise of evil. Christ has forewarned His people so that none are surprised

doctrine of Jesus Christ. 1 John 2: 18 Little children,
it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now
are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19They
went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would
no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be
made manifest that they were not all of us. American King James Version
and sisters as we have been forewarned by Lord Jesus Christ to never be
surprised in the end times that some will fall away, because they have no root
and never belonged to Him, that they will busy themselves trying to turn the
gospel truth into a lie, out of hatred for God and His people. Nevertheless, let
us His people, saved by His mercy, grow
in love, in truth, in grace and in fervor upholding the truth of God’s eternal gospel.
Now and forever more is the day of God’s power. Ps.

at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool. 2The LORD shall

storms or other things take out the power grid, brothers and sisters,
electricity can be lost to countless customers. Everything comes to a halt in
the impacted area. People start doing things first of all to get light. No one
likes to sit in the dark. People use what they have on hand to get light,
candles, flashlights, generators, etc. or sit in the dark if they are
unprepared. Keeping or getting food is another priority, and drinkable water as
broadcast news features such areas, flying over them they show the eerie scenario
covered in blackness, and silence. Few people if any are seen wandering in the
dark. The loss of power becomes agonizing and people start calling with what
devices they have still working demanding power. When the light comes back on
the people rejoice once more. On goes the television, radio, internet, and the
lights in every room. Out goes their fear and terror of being alone in the
dark. Gone is fear of invasion by stealthy unseen and unknown intruders,
animals and their own fearful imaginings.
wants power in some fashion, shape, or form. The nations too clamor for
defensive/offensive power, bigger more deadlier bombs, and other weapons of
war, a powerful standing army, clever spies to keep an eye on the enemy, cyber
weapons to cripple communications grids, and more than we can know. Yet without the source of the power,
electricity to run things, they would be just as powerless in the dark as the
average person. It is no wonder, saints (G40 hagios), that so much money and
manpower is put into keeping the power grid alive, protected, and well. Now if
somebody tried to convince those sitting in darkness that they did not need
electricity, they would call him or her a fool and a liar, or worse.
today are being told in error that they do not need the source of their power:
only true eternal Saviour Jesus Christ: "Without
Me You Can Do Nothing" Jesus Christ is the everlasting source of eternal power, through
whom His people are enabled to will, do and produce good fruits or works.
Jhn 15:5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
the Lord for the faithful multitudes, who keep trusting in Him, and resting in
His power. Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in
the Lord, and in the power of his might. Phl 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
beloveds, let us share a prayer of thanks and praise to God. Lord we thank and
praise you our great God for indwelling us and giving us the Holy Spirit so
that we can carry out your will and work on earth while we pray,watch, and wait for
your return. Lord Jesus we thank you for your abundant, lavish, incendiary, eternal love,
and your eternal truth that continually guides, leads, instructs, disciplines,
and keeps us forever walking in your eternal light. We give to you Lord Jesus
the totality of our love and praise offerings, glory, and honor to you alone.
To you alone belongs all the worship, majesty, power, dominion, and every
accolade and acclaim that can be given, now and for all eternity, Amen.
