What manner of man is this?


“And, behold, there arose a veritable tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, “Lord, save us: we perish.”

And he said unto them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a perfect calm.

However, the men marvelled, saying, “What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:24-27).

Jesus has a way of surprising us. He says things that no one else can say and does things that no one else can do. He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He is the bread of life.

My friends, despite what the doubters say. Jesus is alive. The writer of Hebrews 13:8, puts it this way, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Suffice to say, He is the same Jesus who went about all Galilee, teaching in synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of diseases among the people.

And as His fame went throughout all Syria: they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils and those which were lunatics and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. (Matthew 4:23-24)

Fellow believers if you are wavering in your faith, If doubters have some how managed to convince you to throw in the towel. I dare you to think again. Jesus is no different today than He was when He walked this earth. Like the woman at the well, lives are still being touched. Like the man who was born blind, sights are being restored. And yes, water is still being turned into wine. There is only one Man I know who is capable of doing such things. His name is Jesus.

Jesus is the:

Messenger and the Message

Morning Star and Light of the world

Servant and King

Shepherd and the Lamb

Sacrifice and the High Priest

Vine and the Fruit

Author and the Story

Lifeline and the Anchor

Physician and the Cure

Promise and the Fulfillment

  2. Amen, Noel! Powerful message, filled with biblical truths! This same Jesus, who healed the woman of the issue of blood, who healed the man who laid lame at the pool called Bethesda, and who healed the Centurion’s servant, is alive and well today! He lives, because I know He lives within my soul! This same Jesus, has healed my body miraculously on more than one occasion! Jesus lives! Praise the Lord!

    1. Hello Minister Paulette! It is so delightful to hear from you again. You are a vital link in the chain, and whenever your connection is missing things do not go, as well. I declare victory on your behalf. The devil is a liar and a loser. I stomp on him in Jesus’ name.

  3. Jesus is alive! I cannot scientifically prove that to another person, but I can, without any doubt or hesitation whatsoever state He is alive, because I commune with Him every day. He is my constant Companion – not like a lucky charm or an invisible, make-believe friend – but One who undertakes for me every step of the way; One who directs my ways, preventing me from taking some turns and guiding me to others; One who strengthens and enables me; One who motivates and encourages me, and gives me His peace and joy.

    Jesus is alive! – and not only alive, but vitally interested in and caring for me, and active in my life.

    What an amazing Saviour!

    1. This is like music to my ears. I can sense that you are an excited no nonsense born again follower of Jesus Christ. I agree with every word. Even though, we cannot see Him, we know Jesus is alive. His spirit is with us, and it is the spirit that guides us.

      I thank God for people like you who understand that the Christian journey is not a joke. God blesses.
