Matthew 14

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.

For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.

And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

  1. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
    Matthew 14:14‭-‬16 KJV

    The difference between Jesus and His disciples was that when Jesus saw a need, He was moved with a compassion that compelled Him to meet the need. The disciples, on the other hand, saw the people were in need and wanted to send them away so they could fend for themselves. Jesus knew He had the power and resources to meet any need. The disciples didn’t believe they had enough for themselves, much less for anyone else.

    When you are centered on your own needs and wants, your resources rarely appear to be enough to share. However, when you are God-centered and others-focused, you always know that God will accept what you have and make it more than enough for all.

  2. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    Matthew 14:28‭-‬29 KJV
    One Word from God can change everything!!! Peter said Lord bid me come and He said, Come. Peter stepped out on faith on the word come and walked on water overcoming the laws of nature. We can overcome our fears, failures, and problems when we faithfully hear and obey His Word!

  3. At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

    2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

    3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.

    4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

    5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

    6 But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

    7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

    8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.

    9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

    10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison

    The terror and reproach of conscience, which Herod, like other daring offenders, could not shake off, are proofs and warnings of a future judgment, and of future misery to them. But there may be the terror of convictions, where there is not the truth of conversion. When men pretend to favour the gospel, yet live in evil, we must not favour their self-delusion, but must deliver our consciences as John did. The world may call this rudeness and blind zeal. False professors, or timid Christians, may censure it as want of civility; but the most powerful enemies can go no further than the Lord sees good to permit. Herod feared that the putting of John to death might raise a rebellion among the people, which it did not; but he never feared it might stir up his own conscience against him, which it did. Men fear being hanged for what they do not fear being damned for. And times of carnal mirth and jollity are convenient times for carrying on bad designs against God’s people. Herod would profusely reward a worthless dance, while imprisonment and death were the recompence of the man of God who sought the salvation of his soul. But there was real malice to John beneath his consent, or else Herod would have found ways to get clear of his promise. When the under shepherds are smitten, the sheep need not be scattered while they have the Great Shepherd to go to. And it is better to be drawn to Christ by want and loss, than not to come to him at all.

  4. Sometimes going to a quiet place to pray or mourn from a friend that’s in danger is good. Jesus cries when we get nervous for our problems instead of finding a quiet place away from the desciples or church folks ect. But to find even a sinner God can talk through them too. But mostly when you have time for God he sees fit to be there to listen to the prayer.

    I’m sorry Jesus for going to men/women for all my problems instead of going to hear you and your words, which are a meditation to my soul and 💓.
    Thankyou Jesus for the word today. You had compassion for the multitudes when in need and I’m thankful for having compassion for me too
    Thankyou is not enough praise for you but I hope I can worship you in how I talk and walk. Love y’all.. and God bless,

  5. Verses 28-31 MSG “Then Peter called to him: “Sir, if it is really you, tell me to come over to you, walking on the water.” “All right,” the Lord said, “come along!” So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Instantly Jesus reached out his hand and rescued him. “O man of little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?” And when they had climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped.” How awesome is my God? Jesus rescues!!

  6. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, it is a ghost! And they cried out for fear, but immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying Be of good cheer, it is I; do not be afraid.

  7. 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

    19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

    I LOVE when Jesus does math!!!! Anything in His hands multiplies!! Just give Him what you have and watch it grow!!!! Thank You Jesus for your abundance and blessings!!!

  8. Matthew 14:16-17 (English Amp) Jesus said, They do not need to go away ; You give them something to eat. [17] They said to Him, We have nothing here but five loaves and five loaves and two fish. Then he told the crowds to go set on the grass, And than He took the the five loaves and two fish, and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and blessed and broke the loaves and handed the pieces to the disciples.Than they all ate. All together he fed about 5,000 men, not including women and children. Wow about a 5,000 soul revival in Jesus name. Signs, Wonders,and Miracles. With Jesus we can do anything.

  9. “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
    Matthew 14:29‭-‬31 NLT

    ‘Why did you doubt me?’
    The same question we can asl ourselves at times
    Makes me wonder how the scripture would’ve been if Peter wouldn’t doubted.

    our faith will be put to the test. It isn’t that Peter didn’t walk on water. Fear crept in on his way walking toward the Lord. We at times have fear creeping inside. Is God listening to our prayer? When will he answer? ,faith is replaced by fear(anxiety) and trust is removed by doubt.
    Our faith can move mountains, and we tend to forget, we are so focused on looking at the storm around us.
    Don’t allow fear to keep you from your miracle. Keep walking toward GOD. He is the ‘way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, and the light in the darkness.’

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
    Proverbs 3:5 NLT

    💖💖 Just do it💖💖

  10. 30. But when he remembered how strong the wind was, his courage caught in his throat and he began to sink.
    Peter: Master, save me!

    31. Immediately Jesus reached for Peter and caught him.
    Jesus: O you of little faith. Why did you doubt and dance back and forth between following Me and heeding fear? Voice

    We can either remember how strong Jesus is and follow Him across the waves or we can remember how strong the winds are and follow our fears to the bottom of the sea.

  11. St. Matthew 14:15-21
    15) And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past, send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
    16) But Jesus said unto them, They not depart, give ye them to eat.
    17) And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
    18) He said, Bring them hither to me.
    19) And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
    20) And they did all eat, and were filled; and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
    21) And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

    This is the story of feeding the multitude of 5,000 plus. So how do you feed 5,000 plus people with 5 loaves and 2 fishes? The answer is you can’t, but GOD CAN.
    St. Matthew 19:26, “… With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

  12. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

    Peter wasn’t concerned with walking on Waters. He didn’t probably even consider that a factor in the story. All Peter wanted to do was to have Jesus called him to come to him closer. If we will call on the name of Jesus just to be closer to him their miraculous things that will happen. Our adversary and storms can have no effect on us if our focus is fully reliant on Christ. It is only whenever we look at our surrounding conditions that we will begin to struggle. Let’s keep our eyes focused on Jesus

  13. iLove the kingdom
    4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

    Sometimes you get into trouble when you tell the truth. Telling the truth is always the right thing to do no matter the consequence are. Truth saves souls even if it may cost your own. We must all make it a point to speak the right thing and forsake the enemy.

  14. Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

  15. “And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭14:36‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    This is some mad faith right here. They said if they just touch the hem of his garment they would be made whole.
    Now I’ve seen some miracles and I’ve seen some healings but Jesus even walked on water…too cool.
    Pray in the spirit to keep your faith high.

  16. Sometimes we may wonder how much of an impact can we really make in the kingdom of God. Consider though the impetus for this passage. ‘And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.’

    It is not surprising that they had brought their sick unto Jesus. After all, he was healing people everywhere that he went. But consider the statement at the end, that they might only touch the hem of his garment. This was not a usual practice in Israel. We see it for the very first time just a few chapters before when the woman of the issue of blood was healed… by touching the hem of his garment! She wasn’t a leader, she wasn’t a disciple, she wasn’t even an acquaintance yet of Jesus, but she had a determination of faith that just that touch of the hem of his garment would make her whole!

    She didn’t do it to draw attention to herself, but Jesus chose to do so himself. Everyone around her would hear of the miracle that had proceeded forth and the testimony was right before them… and now we see people in an entirely different area following her example! The testimony of our examples does have an impact! The Bible even calls it an epistle that is read of all men. We need to take heart and remember that as we go about our daily lives, because we do make a difference in everything we do! Let that difference be to the good of God’s kingdom!

  17. “And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭14:22-24‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    Jesus had a reason to send his desciples away. I wondered if the desciples worried about Jesus being about him self. Jesus was famous he was able to send the multitudes away by himself. Then go to mountain.
    Out of nowhere Jesus spread in a windy storm. Building the faith of his men. He had purpose in his on plan, to walk on water.

  18. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

    A lot of the time we hear sermons based on Peters doubt and lack of focus but if you rewind, can we just take a minute to recognize the fact that Peter was the only one who actually had enough faith to step out..?! Talk about “just do it!” We need this kind of great faith to step out with God and risk it all, whole hearted, full of trust and faith, and yes of course no doubt or lack of focus because Peter also taught us what can happen if we take our eyes of Jesus. But wow God, how about we all be like Peter for a moment and JUST DO IT!!

  19. Matthew’14

    24-26 Meanwhile, the boat was far out to sea when the wind came up against them and they were battered by the waves. At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came toward them walking on the water. They were scared out of their wits. “A ghost!” they said, crying out in terror.

    27 But Jesus was quick to comfort them. “Courage, it’s me. Don’t be afraid.”

    28 Peter, suddenly bold, said, “Master, if it’s really you, call me to come to you on the water.”

    29-30 He said, “Come ahead.”

    Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, “Master, save me!”

    We must keep our eyes on Jesus and not on the circumstances going on around us .
    Fear says I can’t. Faith says I will!
    Help me to recognize your voice even in the midst of storms Your love casts out all fear . You are the peace speaker the Master of the Wind. Thank You.

  20. The hem of His Garment

    34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
    35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;
    36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

    This is not the first time that we will hear about the hem of His Garment.
    I recently was in a class and the teacher was teaching about the anointing. And it dates back to when the priests were anointed to become priests that the oil would flow down to the ends of the garment. And the hem of this garment was likened to a cord that would soak up the oil so it would not touch the ground. What if, knowing this, that the people wanted to touch the hem because they understood where the anointing oil would be?
    I need to touch the hem of His garment every day. I need to touch the Almighty every day. For his Kingdom to be established in my life, I need him more every day than I did before.

  21. E14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
    ———
    Marraculus! Just marraculus! Jesus:You feed them,( them): what? It’s late, how are we suppose to get food for over 5000 plus peopl?
    for we walk by FAITH and not by sight.
    That’s how God wants us to live, to aproach life all the time in any circumstance,
    A life , a walk to where miracles happen all the time, a life to where nothing shall be imposible. The ways he said it, so simple, there are hungry? Feed them! Wow😮!!!
    Your Kingdom come, your will be done! Abba.

  22. Josiah: 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
    With God all things are possible. When it looks like we do not have enough to get through God can not only get us through but give us more than we had before. We need to obey and have faith in Jesus though. So, let us GO TRUST IN JESUS!

  23. 13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
    14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
    15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
    16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

    Jesus just heard that his cousin, the man who baptized him has died. He takes a ship to go to a remote place in the desert to be alone and mourn, but there is a need in the land. That’s the definition of true ministry. Putting the needs of others before yourself. Problems don’t go away just because we’re in mourning or tragedy strikes. We are called to serve. The great multitude of people followed him into the desert. He saw their need. They were desperate for a Savior, for a Healer… And so he healed them and they wanted more of him. They were in a dry desert place where no resources were. No hope in that place. Perfect set up for a miracle. And so by his supernatural wonder and the disciples obedience and the needs of the people over five thousand were fed. Hallelujah! And he tells the disciples to move on without him. He has the multitude return home begin healed and fed and now he can mourn and pray. So he goes up to the mountain to pray and be restored. Even Jesus needed time to pray, recoop, seek revelation and guidance. Because when he was revived in the Holy Ghost he came down that mountain in power and walked on water in the midst of a storm. Jesus name! What can we accomplish in the power of the Holy Ghost if we would make sure we have that restorative time with our God? And what miracles will be poured out when we put the needs of others before our own? Hallelujah! I went both ways with this one. 😂

  24. Then Peter called to him, ” Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves he was terrified and began to sink. Save me , Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith” Jesus said “why di you doubt me?”
    Matthew 14:28-31

    There are opportunities in our lives when our faith has the opportunity to be exercise but many of the times we look our circumstances and doubt.

  25. 29-31 He said, “Come ahead.” Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, “Master, save me!” Jesus didn’t hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, “Faint-heart, what got into you?”

    Most of us have likely heard many sermons and messages pertaining to keeping their attention on God. My thought today is on the Message version of this familiar passage and how it claims “Jesus didn’t hesitate”. God has his own sense of timing. He has perfect timing: never early, never late. God is never in a hurry, but he is always on time.

    When our prayers don’t seem to be answered, we are tempted to stop trusting the Lord and start taking thins into our own hands. We need to remain totally dependent on God and wait for Him. When things aren’t working out in our timeline, be patient. Stop trying to move ahead of God. His timing is perfect.

  26. 22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
    23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    No doubt it was troubling to hear about John’s death, yet Jesus put the multitudes and their needs first because of his compassion for people. Then when he had sent the disciples on ahead, he took the time alone to pray. In life we deal with trials and hard problems and we must follow this example- be compassionate with others no matter what we may be going through and find that alone time with God and pray. It is our strength and our own encouragement from the throne.

  27. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    Being able to pray in front of others with boldness of our faith is great, it’s how we can impact and show His power to others. But our relationship with God forms and grows in that time alone with Him, it is there where we are changed, it there where we are strengthened. Every time we leave our house, we are leading, we are representing Christ, and if we don’t have that time alone with God to pray, we will be leading them the wrong way.
    Take time to talk to God today and everyday!

  28. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

    32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

    33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

    34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

    35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

    36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole

    Matthew 14:27-36

  29. 7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

    When reading the chapter today, I couldn’t get away from this verse. And how truly important it is for us to live a holy life. To be praying without ceasing, and walking in the spirit.

    Because we could end up, in a sticky situation. In a party we shouldn’t be at, participating in things children of God shouldn’t be doing. Than making promises purely out of emotions, only to follow through with them.

    Phill 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

  30. 8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.

    9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

    10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

    11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

    We as woman have influence. We can use it for the good of the Kingdom or for our own personal benefit. Here we see Herod’s sister in law used her influence to destroy John the Baptist, because he told Herod that he was sinning with his brother’s wife. Correction made her mad and she used her influence to destroy him.

    We must be careful what is driving us. Are we doing what we do for God or are we doing it for personal gain. We can influence our family, and those around us to be drawn closer to the Lord, to do the work of God and to become all Jesus would have us to be, or we can lead them astray and in essence lead them straight to a devil’s hell.

    We must align our desires with God and lead them to God, otherwise their blood might just be on our hands.

    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

    Peter exhibited FAITH when he responded to the WORD of GOD. “COME” was all Peter responded to when he chose to step out of the boat to walk on water.

    What happened?

    Based on the evidence available to us in the WORD of GOD. What appears to me is that Peter stepped out and what he HEARD and sank by what he SAW.

    When Peter saw the wind, storm, chaos and opposition, he was distracted from what he HEARD in the supernatural by what he SAW in the NATURAL.

    We must build up our FAITH by the WORD of GOD and Praying in the HOLY GHOST that we are not distracted from the SUPERNATURAL by what we see in the natural.

    KINGDOM VISION is seeing things in the SPIRITUAL or SUPERNATURAL. Which requires total obedience to the WORD of GOD.

  32. Matthew: 28-33
    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
    32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
    33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

  33. In this chapter, Jesus not only
    fed the 5,000 and walked on
    the sea, but in verse 36, he made
    those he healed not partially,
    but PERFECTLY whole.

  34. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

    28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

    29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

    30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

    31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

  35. 15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

    16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

    17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

    19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    The disciples brought a need to Jesus saying the people need to eat and there is only a little food but Jesus said fed them. Jesus was trying to get them to think outside the box. I my only see a problem but with faith and speaking the word problems can turn into opportunities to show how. If our God is.
    John 14:12 Jesus said He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; We have the power within us to call things as though they were and speak things into being because we have Christ in us. What are we speaking?

  36. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

    17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

    19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    Whatever you have whatever small or big if you bring it to Jesus first he will bless break and multiply it.

  37. 6 But at a birthday party for Herod, Herodias’s daughter performed a dance that greatly pleased him, 7 so he promised with a vow to give her anything she wanted.

    Yes, a vow/promise is to keep, and not break your word. Be careful of vows you make, and hopefully you won’t regret it. At times, its better not to make a vow to someone if you don’t have intentions of keeping it.

    Ecclesiastes 5:5 It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it. 6 Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved.

  38. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

    33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

    These miracles are awesome but sometimes I wonder how shallow our faith is that Jesus has to do something crazy like this tomget our attention. Really if he never does another thing for me, he has done enough for me to trust him and make him Lord for the rest of my life. I pray for the miraculous but I don’t want to rely on miracles signs and wonders to keep my faith up. He has been good to me and for that I am both grateful and faithful.

  39. 9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

    If Herod wasn’t so busy pleasing his own flesh with a women that didn’t belong to him all this would have never happened. He was in fear of what the followers of Jesus would do, then he was afraid the people partying with him would get upset if he didn’t keep his oath to the exotic dancer.

    John the Baptist was not afraid to die, however he was willing to follow Jesus until the end. If Jesus really wanted to he could have wiped out the king and all the wicked in his kingdom. What we do know is that Jesus does all things for a reason. The king Herod regretted his oath. I only imagine what could have happened if he repented. This is why we need to live repented lives so that in the face of danger we don’t have to question if we would make heaven our next home.

  40. 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

    Compassion!!! Te be like Jesus!! We we don’t have compassion for the lost, the ones in need, how can we reach them. Yes many times people get themselves in their own mess but sometimes it’s truly just ignorance. If we don’t teach them, how are they going to learn? If we would let babies defend for themselves when their born they would eventually die and that is how soul are spiritually…..we can’t let them be born and not care for them, we must watch them, pray for them, cry with them, rejoice, listen, etc. The souls are looking for the power of Jesus Christ!! They are looking for the truth, the anointing, the reason for life, the purpose of your life, the one who changes it all. Everything is based on Jesus!!!

  41. 35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

    36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

    People know God but do they know how powerful he is, how he can say something and it happens in a instant do they know he can have them from cancer or if they are hurt so broken inside do they know , they might not so that is why God needs us to tell them what he can do so they will be saved

  42. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

    21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

    God will always provide for us. He loves us and will not forsake us. He won’t let us fall apart, He’ll guide us and strengthen us no matter what. As long as we have faith and trust in Him, we will lack nothing. Jesus is whatever we need. If we need joy, He is there, if we need love, He is there, etc. God is the answer to all of our situations.
