Jesus Has Power Over The Storm

Written by Angelique Watkins

Continued from page 1

verse 49...But when they saw him walking uponrepparttar sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

verse 50...For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I: be not afraid.

MIRACLES In Water, Sinking Miraculously Prevented

verse 51...And he went up unto them intorepparttar 126976 ship; andrepparttar 126977 wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measures, and wondered.

MIRACLES In The Upper Regions, & In The Atmospher. Tempest Stilled

A little history on The Book "Gospel of Matthew was written byrepparttar 126978 Apostle in Hebrew and in Palestine inrepparttar 126979 first century. It was written for Jewish converts, to show them in Jesus of Nazarethrepparttar 126980 Messiah ofrepparttar 126981 Old Testament whom they expected. It is pervaded by one priniciple,repparttar 126982 fulfillment ofrepparttar 126983 Law and ofrepparttar 126984 Messianic prophecies inrepparttar 126985 person of Jesus.

The Power of Almighty God worked in Jesus and still does today. Even today, Jesus is "upholding all things byrepparttar 126986 word of his power" (Hebrews 1:3).

If Jesus is with us and we are with Him, then we have no reason to be gripped by fear. He is powerful enough and wise enough to handle any situation we may be facing. Like Paul, we should be able to declare, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me" (Phillippians 4:13).

A Sudden Storm comes up. While all of this was taking place, Jesus was asleep. The boat was tossing widly, andrepparttar 126987 waves were splashing water.

Mark 8:23: And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

Mark 8:24: And, behold, there arose a great tempest inrepparttar 126988 sea, insomuch thatrepparttar 126989 ship was covered withrepparttar 126990 waves: but he was asleep.

The disciples realized that such a storm as this they felt a little in danger. Yes, Jesus could turn water into wine, HE could heal all kinds of diseases, HE could expel demons from people and all would be made whole. The disciples hope was in Jesus, so they went to Jesus to wake HIM up.

Mark 8:25: And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

Mark 8:26: And he said unto them. Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebukedrepparttar 126991 winds and th sea; and there was a great calm.

No manner of man could commandrepparttar 126992 winds and sea to obey. Only God Almighty can do this. The disciples "little faith" was being molded into learning even greater truth about Jesus and HIS Power Over Storms, Demons and Human Nature.

Matthew 8:27: Butrepparttar 126993 men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that evenrepparttar 126994 winds andrepparttar 126995 sea obey him!
