VITAL LESSONS FROM THE BEAUTIFUL GATE D
LESSONS FROM THE BEAUTIFUL GATE
4. The name of Jesus Christ unlocks the gates of miracles.
How do I put this revelation to use? Whenever I call the name of Jesus Christ, I expect the gates of miracles to swing open. I expect the gate of miracles to swing open at the mention of the name of Jesus. Take note that when Peter said silver and gold I have none but such as I have I give unto you, in the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk; he never waited for the man to exercise his faith. Instead Peter stretched out his hand and lifted him up. Peter was an action man, you need to be a man of action for miracles to happen. We tend to take a lot of things too lightly. What we don’t like we try to rationalize. Things won’t change until you make them change. Every body remains in a state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an impressed force. Faith is a force. The force of faith is the strongest force you need. Release the force of faith and you will be amazed how the visible and invisible will submit. This is because the visible and invisible are subject to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Everything created is subject to the lordship of Jesus. The name of Jesus Christ gives us access to his lordship. At the mention of the name of Jesus every knee must bow. That is what the word of God says. If it has a name it must have a knee and if it has a knee, it must bow at the name of Jesus.
5. Jesus connection can reverse every irreversible challenge, no matter how long it has lingered.
If we measure what we have in Christ with the kind of miracles that are taking place today, we will discover that we are underutilizing what we have. And why is that? Let’s not be like the Pharisees and Sadducees who must have passed by where the lame man was on that faithful day. What was it that Peter had that they didn’t have? The Jesus connection! Just like the blood of Jesus does not avail unless it is applied, the name of Jesus does not produce until it is applied. Remember that name commands presence, so whenever you call on the name of Jesus, visualize in your mind’s eye that Jesus will appear. It is no longer about you. Peter understood this. He had the golden key. Let’s learn to use the name of Jesus to produce miracles. Do you know that you can use the name of Jesus to change your life and it will remain changed forever? How do you do that? ‘I use the power in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to terminate every form of barrenness in my life in Jesus name’.
6. An undeniable miracle silences every voice of contention.
It silences every voice of manipulation and every voice of mockery. All you need is one undeniable miracle. Acts 4:16, “Saying what shall we do to these men? For that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.” May God give you a miracle that no one can deny in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. No matter how they hate you if you have proofs that your Jesus connection is producing results they will listen to you. Every child of God should be a solution provider not a problem. You are supposed to be a healing agent in a sick world. When they are looking for solution and you appear, things should change because you have the answer that the world does not have. Jesus is that answer. Your connection to Jesus Christ gives you solution to life’s intractable problems. Every intractable problem bows at the mention of the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the answer to every man’s malady.
