In God’s Time… The Speed of Jesus


Have you ever heard the old cliché teachings about, “In God’s Time“? The inference being that God answers our prayers when he gets around to it or when he is motivated by some unreported standard of performance on our part.

I have received reports of many in our flock who have been taught that,” God’s time is not our time and that he will answer our prayers in his time. I have been taught this myself. Worse, I actually know people who believe this, in spite of the fact that it is not Biblical. That is why I recently published a teaching on “God’s Time”. The fact is that God’s Time is the speed of thought and is in this present moment.

 

Here is a scripture about God’s time that you will find very interesting.

From the book of John chapter 6 beginning in verse 14…

“Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, this is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

And when night was come, his disciples went down unto the sea, And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum, And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. And the sea arose by the reason of a great wind that blew.

So, when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing nigh unto the ship; and they were afraid. But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. Then they willingly received him into the ship and IMMEDIATELY THE SHIP WAS AT THE LAND WHITHER THEY WENT.”

Please note that Jesus caused the ship to IMMEDIATELY be at the land whither they went. As you ponder “God’s time”, consider the word IMMEDIATELY. Watch the reaction to this from the people. Verse 22, continues…

“The day following when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boats there, save that one where into his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples in the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;

{ Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberius nigh unto the place where they did eat bread; after that the Lord gave thanks;} (This is referring to the fact that this teaching began with Jesus feeding the five thousand not including women and children and had given thanks to the Lord.)

When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus. And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, WHEN CAMEST THOU HITHER? ” ( In other words, how did you get here?…IMMEDIATELY…at the speed of thought?)

Here is another “Jesus’ Speed” teaching. If you think these teachings of Jesus’ make stiff necked religious people angry now, think how angry they made the Hebrews who were being taught that everything that they had been taught was about HIM, and not them. Jesus had just finished reading the scroll of Isaiah 61 out loud in the temple. He proclaimed that this prophecy was about him. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down, And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. and he began to say unto them,” This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

Then the people said….Hey wait a minute we know this guy, he’s Josephs son, we know his brothers and sisters and his Mother. So Jesus tells them that no prophet is accepted in his own country and rebukes them for their unbelief. He tells them that they are going to be condemned worse than Sodom and Tyre.

Beginning again from the 28th verse of Luke chapter 4…

“And all they in the synagogue when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city, was built that they might cast him down headlong. BUT HE PASSING THROUGH THE MIDST OF THEM WENT HIS WAY. Get this…He passed right through them…How Did He Pass Right Through Them? IMMEDIATELY? At the speed of thought?

I pray that this teaching blesses you. If it does, pass it to another that would be blessed by it.
