35th day – Non-believer
Those who have taken advantage of this opportunity will certainly experience a revolution inside them.
But there are those who see the opportunity and let it pass, why? Because a person only takes advantage of an opportunity when they learn not to be anxious, and have a lot of “thirst”, when that happens whatever word they hear they take advantage of.
The “thirst” of God is connected to a relentless pursuit: Your thoughts are constantly on your goal of being close to Him, and this is beneficial to your spiritual life.
“After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him. Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. His brothers therefore said to Him, “Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples also may see the works that You are doing. For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world.” For even His brothers did not believe in Him. Then Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil. You go up to this feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, for My time has not yet fully come.” When He had said these things to them, He remained in Galilee. ” (John 7:1-9)
Many people think that in order to be seen as a person of God they must manifest their works before others. When in reality we must solely show them to God and consequently others will see what has happened in us.
It is not the opposite: if you appear among the people, then God will see. This concept is completely wrong!
It was suggested to the Lord Jesus that He perform His works somewhere where the people could see, to supposedly reaffirm his “calling.” But neither the Lord Jesus nor those who are connected to the Father have the need to tell people who they are in relation to God.
Once a change occurs inside me it will also show on the outside through my works.
The person is not worried or anxious for people to see their works, but they do everything to convey the truth that God revealed to them and has done in their life.
The Lord Jesus was hated because He testified about the bad works of each person. The truth about the people was revealed and everyone who is connected with God does precisely what the Lord Jesus did by confronting those who are wrong and unrighteous and therefore becomes hated by the world.
The Lord Jesus’ time had not yet come, but our time is always present. We have a golden opportunity to change, but it depends on our participation.
Your time can be now! We are on the 35th day and perhaps you have let the opportunity pass, but if you cease the moment and use your intelligent faith, revolt against the situation, not blaming yourself, but with the willingness to change your ways everything can change.
Your time is now. This is the time to express your belief and surrender.
His is waiting with open arms for you to manifest the faith that is inside of you. All you need to do is knock on the door, insist and reveal that you surrender and are at His disposal.
We conclude here. We’ll be back tomorrow!
