Todays’s Sermon: His Word Shall Stand

Rev. Abiodun adesanu

His word stand. I am reading from Matthew, chapter 12, beginning at verse 9. And when he was departed thence,he went into their synagogue: And behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And religious people asked him, and said, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath days? That they might accuse him. And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

I wanted to tell you this story from Bible, for every word of Bible is true. The Bible says that Jesus entered into the synagogue and a man was there who had a withered hand. Luke’s Gospel says his right hand was withered. Your right hand is your hand of strength. It is your hand of power.

The Bible says that Jesus saw the man. The religious leaders came to ask Jesus a question, and their question was a trick. They had a strategy that they might accuse Him. They were looking for some reason to kill him. Jesus knew their hearts, and answered them regarding a sheep that had fallen into a pit.

Only people with vision fall into pits. David found himself in a pit hiding from the javelin of Saul in a cave.Joseph found himself in a pit. He was a dreamer and his brothers hated him for it. They cast him into a pit, and later into a prison. Jeremiah was a prophet.He found himself in a pit because he would not stop prophesying; the religious people threw him into a well. Daniel found himself in a pit because he prayed unto the Lord, and he was thrown into pit. But God padlocked the lions’ mouths. Nebuchadinezzar threw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego into a pit, but the Holy Ghost made them fireproof. It is people with vision who fall into pits.

I want you to know that Jesus sees you in your condition. He knows who you are. He knows where you live. He knows what you are going through, and Jesus is calling to you. He’s saying,“Come forth! Stand forth! Rise up!And His word will stand!
