Hi

  Jesus said to them, ?My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.  Do you not say, ?There are yet four months, then comes the harvest?? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.
John 4:34-‬35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.34-35.ESV           


Our Lord here is speaking about the heavenly food which is to do the will of the Father and the will of the Father is to fulfill all the prophecies of the OT which our Lord did to the letter.
The harvest our Lord speaks of here of course is the harvest of souls he came into the world to save those who were lost which was Israel and there were many that followed him and believed in him and were baptised into him.
But the chief priests and ruling classes refused to believe and as a result Israel ceased to be a nation in 70AD.
But now in the last days Israel is back on the map so that the scriptures can be fulfilled

       Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob              

Love and Peace
Dave

     Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.  For here the saying holds true, ?One sows and another reaps.?  I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.?
John 4:36-‬38 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.36-38.ESV         


The reapers here are his decipels  Christ  is the sower he has been sowing the seeds of the word of God from the beginning the labourers are all those of the OT who had been preaching the word of God and now the decipels were to enter into there work of spreading Gods word throughout the world.

Love and Peace

       Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman?s testimony, ?He told me all that I ever did.? So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. And many more believed because of his word. They said to the woman, ?It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.?
John 4:39-‬42 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.39-42.ESV       


Here we see how wonderful Gods word is and how it can spread like a forest fire its also interesting to note that it was a woman that began to spread the word this was very unusual at that time just goes to show its Gods word that counts not the one who speaks it.
In this day and age with the internet we have a wonderful opportunity to spread Gods word across the world lets use it.

Love and Peace

         After the two days he departed for Galilee. (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.) So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast.
John 4:43-‬45 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.43-45.ESV     


He stayed with the Samaritans two more days then returned to Galilee were he was welcomed by all those who had seen all the things he had done in Jerusalem and the temple it would be almost impossible to forget all his wonderful works he had done.

Love and Peace

   So he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill. When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and asked him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. So Jesus said to him, ?Unless you  see signs and wonders you will not believe.?
John 4:46-‬48 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.46-48.ESV       


Here we are reminded of the water into wine of course this has another meaning the water the word of God which our Lord turns into wine which represents his blood which  carries the Holy Spirit throughout the body of belivers.
Then the man asks Jesus to heal is son to which our Lord replies we only believe if we se a miracle I believe he means we should believe his words its his words which gives life so let us believe what he says.

Love and Peace
Dave

     The official said to him, ?Sir, come down before my child dies.? Jesus said to him, ?Go; your son will live.? The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way. As he was going down, his servants met him and told him that his son was recovering. So he asked them the hour when he began to get better, and they said to him, ?Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.? The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, ?Your son will live.? And he himself believed, and all his household. This was now the second sign that Jesus did when he had come from Judea to Galilee.
John 4:49-‬54 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.4.49-54.ESV       


We can see here that Christ can heal at a distance the only condition is we must believe and have no doubt it was not only the man who believed but his whole household and not only them but also them who have read this account of this miracle and believed.
Interesting to note how the things our Lord said and did have magnified and spread around the world.

Love and Peace

   After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.  Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic called Bethesda, which has five roofed colonnades. In these lay a multitude of invalids?blind, lame, and paralyzed.  One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, ?Do you want to be healed??  The sick man answered him, ?Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.? Jesus said to him, ?Get up, take up your bed, and walk.?  And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked.  Now that day was the Sabbath.
John 5:1-‬3, ‬5-‬9 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.1-9.ESV       


Here we see our Lord performing another miracle the healing of a cripple by a pool of water our Lord just said the words and the man was healed this happened on th sabbath day a day of rest according to the Jews it was the day God the Father rested from his creative work.
So why did Christ tell the man to carry his bed he would have known the law was he trying to tell us something about the 7th day that he would be working on that day.
As some may know I believe this creation began with Noah after the flood and will last 7000 years the last 1000 years is Christs millennial reign where he will rein as King of Kings so he will be working while God the Father takes his Sabbath rest.

Love and Peace

Hi

      So the Jews said to the man who had been healed, ?It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.? But he answered them, ?The man who healed me, that man said to me, ?Take up your bed, and walk.? ? They asked him, ?Who is the man who said to you, ?Take up your bed and walk??? Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, ?See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.?
John 5:10-‬14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.10-14.ESV     


Here we see the Jews trying to find something to accuse Christ of but the man did not know who he was.
Then our Lord tells the man to sin no more or something worse could happen to him makes you think is all that is happening  in the world to day is a result of mankind's sin.

Love and Peace
