Mark 10:46-52New International Version (NIV)
Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight
46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Thus saith the Lord concerning the year 2016: In the midst of the chaos that has engulfed the earth, my own people that are called by name and bear my mark, shall rejoice. “The journey shall be as smooth as butter”, He said. Mercy shall be the keyword for 2016. Faith shall be the watchword! Do not play or claim righteousness; for none is righteous except Him. Plead the Blood of Jesus every moment and it will pave way for atonement, deliverance and protection. Come constantly to my presence, dwell therein and find repose and comfort.
Abide with me and in me and I will always attend to your calls and your needs. I will be your God and you shall be my people. I will continue to visit the earth in judgement; that is the reason for my people to dwell with me in the secret place. When I hear the plea of the precious blood of Calvary, I will pass over! Trust in my ability to shield and protect you, believe and you shall not be disappointed.
The world system has crashed and lost its power, now shall the kingdom and reign of the eternal God become evident on earth. Jehovah shall rule in majesty! In the year 2016, I shall be recognized and called by my name, “Jehovah Shalom”. (The Lord God Our Peace) Declare my peace over every troubled water, and it shall listen and heed your command. In times of need, call that name, and it will answer you. Declare peace where there is war, in your home, and in your life. I am the peace that the world needs.
Pray for Vietnam concerning major natural disaster, Pray for America; the enemies are watching for wrong choice of leadership. North and South Korea will need divine intervention. Pray against violent insurrection of the suffering masses across nations of the world. Pray that the mighty and noble will show mercy on the poor and needy. Pray for orphans of war and widows and widowers. Strange epidemics will be prevalent in 2016; pray for God’s mercy! There will be another major breakthrough in space exploration in this new year.
Prophetic Scripture: Psalm 86
- Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
- Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.
- Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.
- Peace, perfect peace, ’mid suffering’s sharpest throes?
The sympathy of Jesus breathes repose.
- Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.
- Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
- Peace, perfect peace, death shad’wing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its pow’rs.
- It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus calls us to Heav’n’s perfect peace.
