“Prophet Without a Home!”
“He returned to Nazareth , His hometown. When He taught there in the synagogue, everyone was astonished and said, “Where does He get His wisdom and his miracles? He’s just a carpenter’s son, and we know Mary, His mother, and His brothers-James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas. All His sisters live right here among us. What makes Him so great?” And they were deeply offended and refused to believe in Him. Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his own family.” And so He did only a few miracles there because of their unbelief.”(Matthew 13:54-58)
I wanted to write to everyone with a vision from God today and to tell you to stay strong in faith, because many times when we are on this road to fulfilling God destiny for our lives, many around us will not understand. This also was the case for Jesus. “When he taught there in the synagogue, everyone was astonished and said, “Where does he get his wisdom and his miracles?” It is written by the Holy Spirit that the revelation of Jesus is Lord shall be revealed. Though Jesus was raised in Nazareth , people still did not understand it was the Savior of the world who was with them, For instead of seeing him in His Spirit man, they only saw Him in the natural. “He’s just a carpenter’s son, and we know Mary, his mother, and his brothers-James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas.” The very community of people who he grew up around could not see that transformation that was within him.
“What makes him so great?” And they were deeply offended and refused to believe in him.” Beloved, I tell you this, even as a new creation in Christ, many of those who knew you before, will not receive as one who has been transformed. I have come to realize and understand that forgiveness from God is assured, but forgiveness from man is never an absolute. This is why it is written, “Forgive because God has Forgiven you.” Even more than that, for many people walk with a spiritual blindness that makes them harden within their hearts to not believe that God has changed you. “Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his own family.” And so he did only a few miracles there because of their unbelief.” Acceptance from those who you have been raised up with is not a guaranteed. I know many whose heart are weakened and broken because they seek for acceptance from their church or their family from what God has put on their heart. The Son of the Most High God was rejected from his home town, so how much more will this happened to those who Follow God’s Plan. Never Lose Faith and know that there is still the work of the Lord to be done in every nation. Do not let the rejection of others lead you to give up on Gods plan for you!
