The Oil Of Joy - Wicked Purpose
10 So the Jews were saying to the man who was cured, ‘It is the Sabbath, and it is not permissible for you to carry your pallet.’
Jesus warned us that in the last days, ‘Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,(Matthew 24:12). The main purpose of every evil plan against us is to draw us away from God. This is what Jesus is referring to as cold love. I know people who have quit having faith in God because of what they have been through. I believe it is because of the deception in our minds that it is God Who is doing evil things against us. However when we read the story of Jesus, He was doing good to all men.
The man at the pool had been sick for many years and the religious leaders who could have helped him never did. This is why it took 38 years but as soon as he turned to Jesus and believed in His words to Him, he was instantly healed. Could it be that our problems last as long as they do not because God doesn't want to help, but because we have not listened to His word to stir our faith to act on the word to be set free? The wickedness of men is increasing and because we are connected to each other it will affect us in some way. And so if want to see quick deliverance from the issues of life, then we must totally immerse ourselves in the word of God. We must move it into our subconscious mind where it is constantly playing back to us so it brings us healing and gives us strategies to overcome the issues we face. Stay in the word so your love for God will not grow cold.
REJECT EVIL PURPOSES AND RECEIVE GOD’S WORD TO OVERCOME
Prayer: Father, I pray for Your help to demonstrate my love for You: by keeping Your commandments, and Your commandments are not difficult. Thank You for making it easy in Jesus Name. Amen.
(1 John 5:3 Paraphrase)
