THE WEEPING PROPHET(3)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE WEEPING PROPHET (3).*
John 11:33-35 *When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit and was troubled.*
*And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
The weeping prophet became the healing prophet.
Jesus wept over the tomb of Lazarus, who had died for four days and had been stinking.
Tears move others to tears. Both Mary and Martha were weeping, the Jews present were weeping, Jesus groaned and in His painful groan, betrayed emotions, and wept!
It tells us it is acceptable to mourn with people. Weeping is a symbol of love and affection to the lost, the bereaved and and the family. At bereavement, it is not a time to try to please or pacify anyone with jokes or laughter or even encourage people not to weep. Someone is gone never to be seen again, until resurrection morning, God permit.
We must weep over how sin has inflicted sorrow into our lives and how sickness and other terminal agents of death have robbed lives untimely.
This was why Jesus wept.
Everyone born of man must experience sorrow, John 14:1. It is only by God’s mercy that we will not mourn over our children and younger ones, in Jesus name.
If you remember how Jesus wept, you will love Jesus and give Him joy as His child.
It is for your good. For you to avoid the agony and tragedy of this world, you need to know Him and ask Him to avoid and be saved from life's woes.
Though life's sorrow is not an indication of a life without God (ref Job 1:13-22), we must know that in order to avoid life's tragedies, being deeply rooted in Christ is key.
You must live to know why Christ wept, avoid why He should not weep any further, and ensure He does not weep over you!
We must not cause Him further sorrow. It was because of our sins that He came and was known as a man of sorrow.
He is now glorified, and the only thing we must always look forward to is to make Him rejoice.
Will you make Jesus rejoice?
Will you make Jesus rejoice today?
You can bring joy to Jesus today by winning a soul.
*Call to Word action.*
*l say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Jesus wept for you, so you should not make Him weep again.
Lord, let my life bring joy to You, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
