    Though the other disciple outran Peter when he reached the tomb he was afraid. At times in our lives we are so good at the beginning of things but when we are about to reach our breakthrough we become afraid ,the disciple had to wait for Peter to go inside ,I'm saying to you today do not be afraid to start that business because no one have ever done it before be brave enough

    When Mary recognised her Lord her first reaction was to hug him full of emotion. Jesus pleaded with her to be mindful of his wounds and internal injuries as he was still alive and in the same body.

    THE WORD IS GOD HIMSELF GIVING TO US TO GUIDE US WITH OUR LIFE! IN ORDER TO BELIEVE U MUST RECEIVE THE COMFORTER WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WILL LIVE INSIDE US! LORD THANK U FOR OPENING OUR EYES TO THE UNSEEN TO UNDERSTAND THE SEEN! LORD I PRAY THE EYES OF OTHERS WILL BE OPEN TO THE TRUTH AND TURN FROM THE LIES OF SATAN THAT TRAPS US IN SIN! LORD THANK U FOR SAVING MY SOUL FROM A BURNING HELL! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!

    I agree with it being tradition for the king to fold up the napkin to show the servant he would be returning.

    Praise the Lord Jesus Christ...This chapter is the Highlight of our Faith to our Lord Jesus christ, That is why as a Believer and a True follower of Christ we must share to World that the God that we believed in is the God of Life and Ressurection, We must share to the world that only Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God the Father that Whosoever beleiveth on Him shall not Perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE....Amen and Amen......God Bless....
  • George Wagner for verse 17
    I sent a comment on this verse on the 20th. I believe salvation is so pure that Jesus would not allow anyone to touch Him after His ressurection until His high priestly job was complete and He returned to earth and then and only then allowed human contact.I would like to add this thought to clarify about my sharing the gospel,I believe that we gain wisdom and understanding the more our hearts have a burden for others, I would not tell people about salvation if I didn 't care about their eternal soul. I believe salvation is so pure that God had a pure and perfect plan. God bless!
