Digging for Gold

Angels are sent to rescue from trouble: Acts 12 records that King Herod Agrippa persecuted the early church. He killed James with a sword and when Herod saw how much this pleased the Jews, he also arrested Peter and imprisoned him. He placed him under the guard of four squads of four soldiers each. But while Peter was in prison, the church prayed earnestly for him. The night before Peter was to be publicly tried and executed; he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the LORD smote Peter on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists. All the guards were put into a deep sleep. Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals, coat and follow me.” Peter followed the angel, but he thought it was a vision. They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So, they passed through and started walking down the street, and then the angel suddenly left him.

An angel can appear as a man. Hebrews 13:2 says, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Abraham entertained men not knowing they were angels. Two angels appeared to Lot at the gate of Sodom, and he accommodated them (see Genesis 18:1-8). Just be nice to people for you never know.

Assistance

To assist means to help, to cooperate, and to rally support. Most times, when human assistance fails, God steps in. Jesus Christ came to assist those that need help (Matthew 9:12-13 [AMP]). Sometimes, you need divine assistance when your enemy is too strong for you (Psalm 18:17). When human help fails, God dispatches His angels to give angelic assistance to render immediate help (Psalm 46:1). Angelic assistance is a well-timed help coming when you need it (Hebrews 4:16 [AMP]). You need to realise that God is Omnipresent and He can dispatch help to you immediately (Isaiah 65:24).

The right reasons to obey God are:

  • Obey Him for He loves you, because sin will destroy you (John 3:16). God will discipline you if you continue in sin.
  • You obey God to set godly examples.
  • To seek God and find Him; your motive and focus must be right, and you must deal with flesh because that is where sin reigns and dwells.

After the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, the disciples forgot that on Easter Sunday, there would be a resurrection. They were not totally new to the prophecy concerning Jesus, but their reaction under pressure was disturbing.

Looking at the story of Moses and the bronze serpent, you understand the simplicity, yet profound of the message of salvation. John 3:14-19 says “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life…” The children of Israel rebelled against the LORD, serpents began to bite them, and they began to die. God instructed Moses to erect a bronze serpent, and anyone who is bitten by a real serpent who comes to look up to the bronze serpent will be healed.

When God singles you out it means He is focusing on ONLY you. There are many “only you,” situations in scriptures. For example, there were many widows during the  year famine in Israel, but Elijah was sent to assist only the widow of Zarephath; there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha, but only Naaman the Syrian army was healed (Luke 4:25-27 [AMP]). John 5:5-6 records the story of a man who was sick for 38 years; there were multitudes at the pool of Bethesda, but when Jesus came on the scene, only him was healed.

How do people know when God takes away the shame?

The testimony that we are believing God for will be seen. For a woman that has been tagged barren, her pregnancy will be visible for all to see, as a sign that something has happened. The Bible says that God should give us a token for good so that those that hate us will see that God has helped us and be ashamed (Psalm 86:17).

One of the reasons God made this statement is to extract gratitude from you. Most of the things that happen to us, we take for granted. We freely breathe in and out; if He was to charge you for that breathe of fresh air, you will appreciate Him more. You open your eyes and can see, you can walk, you can eat and digest, you sleep and wake-up, you take everything for granted and you don’t even say ‘Thank You Jesus!’ it is when you get to the hospital that you will really appreciate the grace of God.

The similarity between the hunter and the treasure is that both of them can be in the rough – They can both be hidden e.g. the diamond in the rough, the hunter in the rough, and treasure in the rough all need polishing.
