Matthew 8: 24
And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.
If you read Matthew 8:23–27 and Mark 4:35-41 you see where Jesus was asleep on a ship when his disciples became afraid because a storm became overwhelming to where the wind and the waves covered the ship. They wanted Jesus to wake up and save them. Little did they understand, at that point, that Jesus came to save them eternally in a very big way. But for this storm all Jesus had to say was: “Peace be still”. And the wind and the waves cease to blow. Why? Because that is just a portion of how much power our Lord and Saviour has within Himself. Jesus has said “Peace be still” to many of our storms in life, time and time again.
When you think about some of the power Jesus performed while here on earth, we realize we only know just a small example of what all He can do.
John 21:25 says:
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
So making the wind cease and the waves be still is nothing compared to the miracles he performed while here on earth, such as raising the dead as with Lazarus (John 11:43-45) and healing the sick man of leprosy (Luke 5:12-16).
And even now that Jesus is back in heaven His great power will be seen in a grand finale by all mankind, in such a way, that all will see Him and know Him no longer as our Saviour but as our Judge (Revelation 1:7).
So we must get prepared now, because no one knows when He will return not even Jesus Himself, only the Father knows:
Mark 13: 32-37
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, WATCH.
