Desire of ages and Gospel journal.
Today I decided to read Chapter 43-Barriers Broken Down of Desire of ages
Where I got to learn several virtues of life. In this chapter a Canaanite woman came to Jesus
asking for Mercy since her daughter was grievously vexed with a devil and she wanted Jesus to
heal her daughter since she heard of the prophet who could cure all manner of diseases. The
people of Canaan were of old Canaanite race, idolaters and hated and despised by the Jews
.However Christ did not reply to the woman’s situation immediately but still the woman never
gave up but eventually Jesus fulfilled her wishes.
Lesson learnt; God has the power over healing
We should be patient with our requests to God for He will answer accordingly.
Chapter 46-He was transfigured
Jesus called upon His three disciples Peter, John and James and went across the field to the
lonely mountainside. The light of the sun liners on top of the mountain and was filed with glory
on the path they were travelling. The disciples followed Jesus for they did not bother ask Him
wither they are going. Presently Christ told them they are not going any further. As the disciples
were asleep and Christ was persistent with prayers Moses upon the mount of transfiguration
witnessed Christ victory over sin and death. They received great light where they were given
clear insight into the work of the redeemer
Lesson learnt; Christ is the desired Messiah.
Chapter 49-At The feast of Tabernacle
The was a feast the closed gathering of the year. It was a time where people reflected their
goodness and mercy upon God. The Feast continued for seven days where people left their
homes and came to Jerusalem. The feast was not only the harvest thanksgiving but also the
memorial of God protecting care over Israel in the wilderness.as the sons of Joseph prepared to
attend the preparation they saw that Christ made no movement signifying His attention of
attending. Jesus taught in the temple day after day
Lesson learnt; we should have faith in God.
