Reading: “And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned (about the breaking news of the day that Jesus ha resurrected), Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.” (Luke 24:15)

There is a Way of holiness God Wants us to Walk On

Man is not supposed to be alone here on earth. That is why God created all creatures in pairs. God loves fellowship. Fellowship with God was one of the richest privileges of unfallen man. The Lord God walked in the Garden of Eden and talked with Adam as a man talks with his friend. But man somehow felt lonely and God gave him a helper to be having fellowship with together.

In this journey of life, do not walk alone. On the way of holiness set up for the called and the redeemed, make sure that you are not walking alone. “And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there.” (Isa 35:8-9 [ESV2011])

God assures us that when we walk on that way of holiness, no lion, beast, disease, danger, misfortune shall come upon us.

Talk About the Risen Christ On That Way of Holiness

Along the way of holiness, be the Cleopas of today and start discussing of the best news ever told that Jesus is alive. “And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about seven miles. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were held, that they should not know him. And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:” (Luke 24:13-19 [KJV]). The moment you start testifying or witnessing that Jesus is alive, praying and worshipping in the Spirit, singing hymns and psalms and gospel songs, playing the harp or guitar or keyboard to glorify God in Jesus’ name, Jesus Christ Himself will join you and walk with you on that road revealing to you about Himself. “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and broke and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.” (Luke 24:27-31 [KJV])

When Jesus Hears You Marketing Him, He Will Join You On That Way of Holiness

When Jesus hears you telling others, preaching about the risen Christ, witnessing that Christ is alive, giving testimonies of the good things Jesus Christ has done in your life, that He is the Living God, the Saviour of the world, He will be so pleased with you that He will join you and walk with you, giving you His Word. Imagine walking hand in hand with “Jesus, the creator of the world” (Hebrews 1:2). No lions will be found on that way of Holiness because you will be walking hand in hand with “Jesus, the Almighty God” (Isaiah 9:6, John 1:3, Colossians 1:15-17).

Jesus Went to the Home of Cleopas

Jesus was so pleased to hear Cleopas talking with his fellow believer of the greatest breaking news ever that Jesus is alive that He went to their home. Imagine Christ coming to your home. Jesus went to the home of Simon Peter and his mother in law got healed. Jesus went to the home of Mary and Martha and resurrected Lazarus their dead brother. “Say to the Daughter of Zion, `See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'” (Matthew 21:5) The God who raised the only daughter of Jairus (Luke 8:41-56) dwelling in your house and in you will resurrect your meaningless life, your business, your relationship and make you more than a conqueror in Jesus name. He walked on water, He can help you also to walk on your water of circumstances, storms, challenges and problems.

Jesus is the King of Kings

Jesus Christ is the King who was prophesied by prophet Zechariah as the coming king (Zechariah 9:9). “Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.” (Matthew 21:1-5) Jesus rode a donkey in part to protest against the Jews’ expectations, telling them He would not be the military king that they desired, but a lowly King who would offer Himself as a Lamb of God to be crucified on our behalf. After resurrection, Jesus went back to heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God, being now the glorified King and the King of kings. “These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

The King Comes to Your Home

Imagine the King of kings in your house the same way he went to the home of Cleopas. He walks with Cleopas, talks with Cleopas, and even accepts Cleopas’ invitation to go to their house. After entering the house, Jesus takes bread, blesses it, breaks it and gives it to the disciples. The words used in this verse are very similar to the words of Luke 22:19. In the upper room, Jesus takes the bread, blesses it, breaks it and gives it to the disciples. He tells them, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Jesus chooses to reveal himself through Communion.

When Jesus broke the bread and handed it to Cleopas, his eyes were opened. In the same way, when we do Communion, our eyes are open anew. This is why we call Communion a sacrament: Christ has chosen to reveal himself to us through Communion. When we partake of the bread and the cup, we are meeting the risen Lord—just like Cleopas!

Jesus in your house will take bread with you and your family, and bless your food and your water and the air around you. While inside your house, He will dine with you the same way He dined with His disciples. He will break the bread with you, the bread broken for you at the cross, for each of us who believe in Him to feed on the small pieces of Himself, that we may have life and have it even more abundantly. And your eyes will be opened, and you shall know Him; and He shall vanish out of your sight because you shall have seen God by faith and lived.

When the King Dwells in You, He will Commission You To Be His Witnesses to All Nations

Imagine the King of kings in your house and in you, a King who comes to your house and in you to heal you and prosper you. A King who comes to give you His power: power to heal like He heals, cast out devils like He casts and to set the captives free like He sets free. He will then send us (those who believe in Him) to the world to make for Him disciples of all nations. What a privilege to realize that when we agree to be fishers of men for Him, He shall give us power to counter the forces of evil that will try to block us from preaching Christ to the nations. Jesus made an earth shaking statement about his sovereign rule over this world and over his mission when He told His disciples and is today telling us that “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18–20)

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:19-20 [KJV])

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:15-18 [KJV])

The choice is yours. Let us not be crying to God to come to us only when we are in danger. Although He will come to our help, He will save us from that danger but will not abide in us. His stay in your home is on condition that you continue uplifting His name. As long as you continue abiding in Him and in His Word, He will continue abiding in you. When His Word is in you, the “Christ will be in you” (Col 1:27) because He is the Word of God who created the heavens and the earth. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:1-3 [KJV])

If we abide in Him, He will abide in us and whatever we shall ask, we shall be given. Jesus told His disciples and is telling us to “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5 [ESV2011])

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7 [ESV2011]) Whatever we shall ask Him, as long as we abide in Him, we shall be given. When God says whatever, He means whatever. ‘Whatever’ means an open cheque for us fill in whatever we need. What a good God that we have. The Mighty King of kings and Lord of lords. “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” ((Rev 19:11-16 ESV)
