Faith According to Yahshua
It came to pass, that as He was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging; and hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace, but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, LORD, that I may receive my sight. Jesus said unto him, receive thy sight; thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying GOD: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto GOD. Luke 18:35-43 (KJV)
Comotion: What is going on regarding the multitude of people, why are they trying to block a miraculous blessing?
Inquiry: Why is the multitude of people passing through, who is passing through the neighborhood?
Situation: Why and for what purpose is a certain person continuously shouting & who is he?
Identification: How does the person sitting by the way side address the Man from Nazareth?
Reminder: Notice that Yahshua stated: “thy faith hath made thee whole”. Within the Holy Scriptures, it is stated, “without faith it is impossible to please GOD”. Why is faith so important? Faith is complete trust, it is unshakeable certainty that what has been requested or hoped for will be provided. When odds are stacked against us, we as believers know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Father, which is in Heaven will provide.
When we humble ourselves and go to His Throne of Grace with thanksgiving, and present our requests to Him, by faith, we can expect our prayers to be answered. Yes, there are pre-requisites: Humble ourselves under His Mighty Hand, repent for all unrighteousness offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and then let our requests be made known unto Him, and we do all this in the Name of His Holy Son, Yahshua ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ.
