Just Believe

Luke 24; They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
19 “What things?” he asked.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

The Disciples had walked with Jesus 3 years, they knew He was the Christ, they  had seen every miracle He had performed. He revealed to them He was God.

 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

They were doubting everything that He had told them because fear and worry had entered their hearts. Because Jesus was no longer with them, He had died, but He told them He was gonna die and rise from the dead. The point I am getting at is, all of the promises God makes us, die, then God raises them from the dead, but during that process of waiting for them to be raised, doubt and fear that it really wasn't Jesus who told those things to us rises up in your heart.
Jesus really is real, His promises really are from Him. Yes, He really did speak them to you, now is the time you believe and stand, because nothing is left but faith, that you know His voice, you walked with Him and you know it, the waiting is hard, but you cannot doubt all that He showed you.

John 21; 25
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

The disciples saw all this happen, and yet saw Him die.They lost faith and Hope, because the flesh was over riding the Spirit. In their hearts they knew, but their flesh over came their hearts. Our flesh rises up with fear, because satan puts doubt in there. You gotta stand in faith and believe everything Jesus showed you and told you. JUST BELIEVE>
