Time And The Fulfillment Of The Word Of God. Mathew 4 Bible Study

In Mathew 4:12-16 we read that after hearing about John the Baptist’s arrest, Jesus went and lived in Capernaum. The scripture states that this move from Nazareth to Capernaum was a fulfillment of what was said through the prophet Isaiah. According to this source, there was a 730 years gap between Isaiah and Jesus. In other words, Isaiah spoke what was to come and it took 730 years for that word to be fulfilled. Yes, it took a long time, but the word from God spoken through the prophet DID COME TO PASS!  The light did shine through the darkness! What an encouragement for those who feel like they are in a dark place and they are waiting for the light to shine through, they are waiting for a new day to dawn.  They are waiting for the fulfillment of what God has spoken.

What word from the Lord are you waiting to be fulfilled? Are you second guessing, are you growing weary in the wait? Continue to stand in faith and obedience as you wait for the promise to be fulfilled. Don’t let the passing of time cause you to lose hope. Be encouraged, God is faithful.

Be Blessed,

Anika

P.S.-Stay tuned as I share some things that you can do as you wait for the word of God to be fulfilled in your life.

Hello there! I am Anika and I am definitely one of those. Passion oozes from every fiber of my being. I love to love. Sounds cheesy, I know, but I already told you that I am one of those kinds of people. Read on to find out some more interesting facts about me… 1. I love me some Jesus. I love to testify and if you hang around me long enough you may hear me bragging on the awesomeness of God, like how • He gave me a house I couldn't afford • Healed two of my children • Gave me a yes when I wanted to say no 2. I married a younger man…OK, not really. I was 23 while he was 22. My birthday is in April and his in August, but it’s our running joke. Nevertheless, after 13 years of marriage, I happen to love him deeply, and it still makes for a great story. 3. I have experienced the pain of two miscarriages and the joy of delivering 6 children (3 boys and 3 girls). I have both a bachelors and masters degree from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in Early Childhood Education, which I put to good use staying home with the kiddos. 4. I attend an awesome church where my husband is the Assistant Pastor. I am also a part of a not for profit organization that encourages women to walk in their God given purpose. 5. I am addicted to prayer. 6. I am considered nice by most, definitely extreme by design. I am politically incorrect. 7. I take the scenic route when telling a story, but I promise if you hang on long enough, I eventually get to the punch line. 8. I have great ideas but I sometimes procrastinate. Jesus and I are working on that one. 9. I am guilty of overthinking things (refer to number 8). 10. I am originally from Jamaica. Surprise…sunshine and coconuts are two of my favorite things. 11. I subscribe to the Paleo Diet and actually did a round of Whole 30. 12. I love to experiment in the kitchen. 13. I make an absolute mess when I cook. I try to clean as I go but get distracted with cooking. Go figure. (My family doesn't always enjoy my cooking but I make them eat it anyway.) 14. I love people and enjoy talking to them—even the weird ones. I tried being otherwise but found it doesn't suit me well, so I'm learning to be okay with being me. 15. I have traction alopecia and wear wigs and am crazy enough to believe God for restoring my hair follicles even though the doctors have said otherwise. 16. A movie is considered good only if it makes me cry...more than once. Sound of Music happens to be my all time favorite. 17. I really wish I sang well. I really don't. 18. Telling people about Jesus is my favorite past time. And if I'm not talking about Him, I'm talking about my family or some random health fact I learned on Google. 19. I love redemption stories and happy endings, that’s why I said yes to Jesus. Feel like you know me a little more? Well good! Please continue to stop by my little corner of cyber world. And do leave a comment. Remember I love to talk to people!

Hi, I don’t know where to start. There is a lady who was looking for her real family because she was adopted as a baby. Shee prayed for years. She is now in her fifties. As of friday it was confirmed she found her family. She talked to her own sister who she shares one parent with. That sister is ME!! PAISE THE LORD. Now we have not ironed out all the detail of which parent we share but God was faithful in bringing us together. We are going to have family reunion of overflowing tears of pure joy. All because she had FAITH IN GOD while waiting for him to reunite her with her true family. Lord I
thank you and give you all the glory in Jesus Name Amen!
