Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in Heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in Heaven.
And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
A history of miracles
Now is the time of miracles. God, the Holy Spirit, and the Lord make miracles happen when we have faith in Them. Even if all seven billion people on the earth were to take action simultaneously, these same miracles could not be performed. However, you must have positive thoughts to have positive outcomes.
Also, nothing is given away for free; there is always a price to be paid. You receive something for free because you purchased something else. The reason miracles and signs are shown is for people to believe in the Messiah.
Acknowledge and believe in the Messiah really well
Jesus refrained from performing miracles for those who failed to believe in him. Since they didn’t know him properly, they didn’t acknowledge him nor have faith in him. Therefore, he left those people without giving them the Word of salvation and without showing his power and abilities.
He emphasized, “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in Heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in Heaven.”
The way God takes vengeance on non-believers is by making them believe in Him undeniably. For example, Jesus took vengeance on Saul. He had severely persecuted Jesus’ disciples. Though Saul was an enemy of the Gospel, Jesus ultimately took care of him and asked, “Why do you persecute me, Saul?”
Afterwards, Jesus blinded Saul and let him be healed by one of Jesus’ disciples. Jesus then told him to diligently testify and preach the Gospel. Saul eventually became Apostle Paul and testified with great zeal, writing many books of the New Testament.
Gratification and joy come when you give recognition to others
You must acknowledge what God has done. In your family, too, give recognition to your parents and acknowledge their hearts. Acknowledge one another. Then you will be filled with joy and strength. If you give recognition to others, they will sprout wings and fly like eagles.
Of course, there are things that people do poorly, but give them recognition first. Acknowledge them for their hard work. Then they can work on fixing their shortcomings. On a broader scale, you should also pray for politicians and ask God to watch over them and guide them.
The time has come for you to acknowledge what the Holy Trinity and the Lord have been doing for you and to also acknowledge what the people around you have done.
