Matt. Chapters 12-13-14
_____________________________________________
Matt.12
[1] At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
[2] But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.
[3] But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
[4] How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
[5] Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
[6] But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
[7] But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
[8] For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.

They had their packs of crooks back then, which were the Pharisees, those who knew all the intricacies of the Law of God and go about criticizing those who break this law even in the smallest of matters.

Today we also have those same Pharisees, only instead of the law of God, it is the law of the land, which is far more intricate than what ten thousand of the laws of God would be. Thousands of volumes of books filled with millions of laws that is an impossibility for any one person to keep.

Not only do we have an overpowering avalanche of impossible laws, but more and more are being enacted each day by the ruling elite of the land. Since these who make these laws know them to the letter, they are able to build walls of protection around themselves so that they themselves are immune to the most binding of the law which is the financial parts. Due to this they are able to build for themselves unbelievable amounts of riches at the expense of the common people.

Instead of finding and criticizing those who break those laws, there are those who hire them, the lawyers at monumental prices to sue those others who have been found to break these laws.

It is a very large crime club which has at it’s upper most peak the ruling class over the nation. A criminal enterprise such as the world has never known, and there is even a higher peak above this one with many secret societies in between, and at this highest peak is Lucifer himself.

[9] And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
[10] And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
[11] And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
[12] How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
________________________________________________
Much can and has been said about the Sabbath. In reality the Sabbath is Saturday, the last day of the week, check any calendar, and you will see this as plainly as the nose is on your face. Sunday on the other hand is the first day of the week.

Since I was a small child, seventy – eight years ago, Sunday has always been proclaimed as the ‘Lord’s Day’ and the day of Sunday was then somehow holy, and untouchable. No business was open and all stores were closed, no thought of working on Sunday.

Since that time, I have found that all those who proclaimed this, were indeed sinning by working on Saturday, as it is actually the Sabbath, and that is the day which should be holy, no business, no stores open. Therefore, even though the day of Sunday somehow appeared to be holy and divine, it is not, no more than is Monday, or Tuesday, any day other than Saturday.

Even that has changed, since God has been outlawed completely in our land, even Sunday now is no more than any other day of the week, and all transactions are conducted on Sunday as it is any day of the week. The only ones who observe Sunday are the very ones who outlawed God in the first place, all the ruling elite of the land.

[13] Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
[14] Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
[15] But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
[16] And charged them that they should not make him known:
________________________________________________
Jesus had the multitudes following him, and those that needed to be healed, were healed by Jesus. He then tells them to be quite about Him and not let it be known about Him.

If a great many people are healed of their ailments, is it logical that they will be quite about it. When they return to their homes free from their ailments, are they not going to reveal how it happen, and by whom? I think that is exactly what Jesus wanted in the first place. The more you tell people not to do something, the more they will indeed do that very thing. He wanted to be revealed.
________________________________________________
[17] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
[18] Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
[19] He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
[20] A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
[21] And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
________________________________________________
Incidentally a Gentile is one who is not a Jew or a Mormon, and it is to the Gentiles that Jesus was sent. In other words, he is our Savior.
________________________________________________
[22] Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
[23] And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
[24] But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
[25] And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
[26] And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
[27] And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
[28] But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
[29] Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.
[30] He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
[31] Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
[32] And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
________________________________________________
Jesus was very smart, able to have a wise comeback to the Pharisees. If he was using Satan to cast out devils, then who were the Pharisees using to do the same thing, if they answered Satan, that would indicate who their god was, if they indicated God, then they would have to admit that Jesus himself was God. Either way they were trapped in their own criticism.

He who is not with Jesus is against him, this indicates that all denominations which cover the world are wrong in their belief if they do not have Jesus as their Savior. Many there are that fall into this category.

All manner of sin and blasphemy against Jesus can be forgiven. Yet, if one does the same against the Holy Ghost, that sin and blasphemy can not and will not be forgiven.

I know that it is unusual, but, when does one know when he is speaking against the Holy Ghost? The Holy Ghost is not very identifiable in the scriptures, just who and what is the Holy Ghost?
_______________________________________________
[33] Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
[34] O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
[35] A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
[36] But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
[37] For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
________________________________________________
Now here are a couple of scriptures (verses 36-37) that are very easy to skip over and disregard, I know I have. That is why each verse should be studied closely, each word, each paragraph, each phrase.

Many are the idle words spoken by us all. However I know of three very talented groups who are able to speak or write long lengthy tirades and when given close investigation they have actually said or written nothing, these are preachers, lawyers and politicians. Of course in most cases, lawyers and politicians can be categorized in the same group.

I have seen many instances where somebody has asked one of these groups a very simple question requiring a simple yes or no answer. The answer comes in a very long and boring barrage of words, when closely analyzed have neither given a yes or no answer, and have actually said nothing in reality.
Idle words, by the words we speak we shall be judged, and by the words from our mouth we shall be condemned.
_______________________________________________
[38] Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
[39] But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
[40] For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
________________________________________________
Again we come to the number system, the number three, Jonas in the belly of the whale, and Jesus in the earth for three days.

I have written to some length before on people testing Jesus on faith. He refuses to be tested, those who refuse medical help relying on faith alone, those who handle snakes, those who refuse to work and provide for their families and themselves, saying God will provide.

No, he will not provide directly, he will show you where you can work, and then provide. He provides professional doctors when they are needed. As for the ones who handle snakes, they will simply die from their stupid actions, and rightfully so.

If it took me three days to walk from here to Atlanta, I would know for a fact that is exactly how long it took, and that I did do it, I would know it for a fact because I experienced it.

Then if I could go back in time and state to one that on a certain day at a certain time, that I would walk to Atlanta, and it took three days, that would be fact because I had experienced it.

How could Jesus have known he would be in the earth for three days, unless he had experienced it? I fully believe that God, the eternal life which is God has gone through all things. All things that we live in our lives have been lived before in the past dawn of time. There is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9 [9] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.)

________________________________________________
[41] The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
[42] The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
[43] When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
[44] Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
[45] Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
[46] While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
[47] Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
[48] But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
[49] And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
[50] For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
______________________________________________
From Noah, by blood and flesh we are all kin one to the other, we have all sprung from the same root in the flesh. Now, when we accept Jesus in the Spirit, all who are in this category are also sisters and brothers. There are no distinguishing between kin, we are all the same one to the other.

Matt.13
[1] The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
[2] And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
[3] And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
[4] And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
[5] Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
[6] And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
[7] And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
[8] But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
[9] Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[10] And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
[11] He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
[12] For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
[13] Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
[14] And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
[15] For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
________________________________________________
Jesus spoke to the general public in parables so that the people would not truly understand what is said. Something of a mystery here, why speak to them at all if it is not for them to be converted? It was not his will that they should be converted and healed, why not, are they not worthy, do they not have souls as all other humans have?
_______________________________________________
[16] But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
[17] For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
[18] Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
[19] When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
[20] But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
[21] Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
[22] He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
[23] But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
[24] Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
[25] But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
[26] But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
[27] So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
[28] He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
[29] But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
[30] Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
________________________________________________
Now here is a parable which should also be studied very closely by one and all. The field of wheat was sown, and in it came the ‘tares,’ which of course indicated that Satan had also done his part by sowing discord, and causing havoc, causing many to fall to his side of the line.

What did Jesus say to the reapers? Wait till the harvest is ripe, then what are they to do? They are to gather first of all the ‘tares,’ and cast them into the fire, which leaves the field of wheat clean, it is still there, waiting to be harvested.

This indicates to me that should any sort of so called ‘rapture’ take place, it in all logical thinking is the reapers gathering the ‘tares,’ to be destroyed, they are the first to be plucked from the field. Therefore, I want no part of any kind of pre tribulation rapture. The souls who belong to Jesus must bear their cross, that of being persecuted by the Antichrist.
________________________________________________
[31] Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
[32] Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
[33] Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
[34] All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
[35] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
[36] Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
[37] He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
[38] The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
[39] The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
[40] As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
[41] The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
[42] And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
________________________________________________
The parable of the tares is explained in plain English to the apostles, so that they could understand. It is not so with the general public, they are not at this time worthy of being saved, a real mystery to me.

The angels will gather from the fields, the tares, and cast them into the furnace. The tares being all those bad seed sown by Satan. A bad day for our five hundred and forty five ruling tyrants that control this nation, I feel certain that they will be the very first to be pluck up and thrown into the furnace, this being done in great haste so as not to dirty the hand with this stinky poo-poo.

This should be evidence enough for not wanting to be in the first to be lifted from the earth, the first lifting, or rapture of the earth will to cleanse it of all the filth. This so called first, pre millennial rapture is preached in many churches. This ignorance of the true scripture is very dangerous, in that it causes people to become brain dead toward the written Word of God.
________________________________________________
[43] Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[44] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
[45] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
[46] Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
[47] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
[48] Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
[49] So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
[50] And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
________________________________________________
Actually there is to be two cleansings of the world, that which comes about when Jesus returns to earth to set up the Kingdom, and again at the ending of the thousand year reign of Christ on earth.

When Jesus returns, it will be with his saints that he sent his angels out to gather from the four corners of the earth, with them, he will then administer the very ‘Wrath’ of God onto mankind in a blood bath which the world has never before ever witnessed. (Matt. 24 and Dan 12)
________________________________________________
[51] Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
[52] Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
[53] And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
[54] And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
[55] Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
[56] And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
[57] And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
[58] And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
_______________________________________________
Jesus was born of Mary, he had four earthly brothers, James, Joses, Simon and Judas. He also had sisters (verse 56). Nothing has been recorded that I am aware of, of his earthly family, four brothers, and an untold number of sisters.

It is very true that the very Word of God, which is that treasure of great worth, the treasure that one should give his total life to gain, is totally rejected by immediate family. I found this out early on in my career with God.

Weird how immediate relatives feel that one of their own is not worthy of such information, they feel that this is just a bunch of useless imaginary fantasy that is coming from a fool’s mouth. After being subjected to this, all initiative to try and inform is gone, and does not return.

Strange how they will on the other hand, listen to someone who is a total stranger shout from behind a pulpit a mouth full of nothings, and they fall for it. To them it is gospel because it comes from a licensed college degreed infidel who actually knows nothing about God’s true Word, and it comes from behind a church pulpit on a Sunday, which is not even the Sabbath.

Unless the Word comes from that area, it is not true or it is not to be believed. It truly amazes me at the blindness of the people who surround me in my daily life.
________________________________________________
Matt.14
[1] At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
[2] And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
[3] For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.
[4] For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
[5] And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
[6] But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
[7] Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
[8] And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.
[9] And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
[10] And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
[11] And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
[12] And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
____________________________________________
From what I see in the above scriptures, (verses 3 & 4) the king was shacking up, (sleeping with, having sex) with his brother’s wife. Of course John seeing this informed the king of his wrong doing. I have found from experience that those who are doing wrong do not want it to be brought to their attention. The ruling elite, in their own eyes, can do no wrong. In our present day society, it is all legal, that is, it is legal until they are caught.

John made the sad mistake of telling the king that he should not be shacking up with his brother’s wife. Incidentally where was Philip the king’s brother during this little sexual escapade that was taking place between he and his brother’s wife?

It is evident that the wayward wife liked her sexual relationship with her brother-in-law, because she wanted the one who brought it out for the world to see, done away with, and arranged to have this done through her daughter dancing before the king, and hypnotizing him with her sexual sensational weaving and turning to his perverted delight. This caused him to promise her anything, the death of John to be exact. Always a woman at the bottom of a man’s troubles.
________________________________________________
[13] When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
[14] And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
[15] And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
[16] But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
[17] And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
[18] He said, Bring them hither to me.
[19] And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
[20] And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
[21] And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
________________________________________________
As I have stated before, I always try to find a logical answer to all things, actually, nothing is done by what is termed as ‘magic,’ there is always some sort of basic reasoning behind everything. This goes for what Jesus did.

We all know that for there to be any life, there must be three things in place, the earth from which the entity has sprung, food and water to sustain the entity, last but not least sun and air for it to spring forth into.

Jesus came from the future where all these things were created from, all of the elements are present when one sits on the earth. Somehow those of the distant future have been able to combine all elements required almost instantaneously in order to obtain what is basically needed for the human body, ‘food.’

Jesus had all of this at his command, and by ‘thought,’ was able to create food. However he had to have the basic elements, the fishes and the loaves of bread, though few in number, they were needed as a base from which much could be obtained.

It takes only one small kernel of corn to grow a stalk which has several ears of corn on it. There was only Noah on the ark, yet the world is now filled almost to overflowing with humanity.

Never underestimate the power of the human mind, from it has come everything from the flush toilet to space exploration by vehicles beyond description. In the future it will be able to create from nothing, life. In the future the mind will be God.
________________________________________________
[22] And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
[23] And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
[24] But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
[25] And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
[26] And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
[27] But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
[28] And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
[29] And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
[30] But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
[31] And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
________________________________________________
As stated above never underestimate the power of the mind, it has powers which we have never even imagined. I have heard it said, I do not know and have no references, but I have heard that we use only a tenth part of our mind. Here in the scriptures below (Matt. 21:19-21) are examples of what the mind is capable of doing, coming straight from the lips of Jesus.

Matt. 21:19-21 (insert)
[19] And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
[20] And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
[21] Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done

Walking on the water was no small thing for Jesus because he had full use of his mind over matter. We as humans have this ability, as is shown by Peter in (verses 28-31) only when the faith faltered and doubt entered his mind did Peter sink into the water.

But the fact remains, he was human and was able to do what Jesus did, which proves that in the distant future when we learn how to fully control our mind, we will be as Jesus, able to do what he did, our mind will morph into God.
This should be proof enough that our mind, that part of us which is spiritual, is and has always been a part of God.

[32] And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
[33] Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
[34] And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
[35] And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;
[36] And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

The mind is powerful beyond imagination, it is able to emit power so that even the clothes we have on our body takes on it’s abilities. Even our outer coverings become a part of the entity which is you, me or any human. So powerful that to even touch our clothing there is in it the very abilities to heal the sick and afflicted.

There is only one requirement needed before we are able to tap into these wonderful powers of the mind, and that is to accept Jesus as our Savior into our lives, and pray for the faith of God to be granted. When this is done with a pure heart, then we become a part of God, and able to use his power in our lives.
