I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of John 20:15, Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away. “
From the above context we learn that there was a woman crying at the tomb of Jesus Christ. Having found that the body of Jesus was not in the tomb in which he was buried, she began to cry. She was called Mary Magdalene.
Once she was bound by seven fearful satanic spirit. She was locked up in a dark room and was crying like a mad woman. Her tears came in the presence of God. There were many other women who were enjoying outside, but because she was tied by seven spirits, she was in depression spending her time in loneliness. So Jesus came in search of her and met her. He drove away all those seven spirits that was inside of her. He made her a normal woman. He brought her out of darkness into the bright light.
Dearly Beloved, I see in my spirit some of you who are reading this message crying bitterly. Some problem is pressing your heart. Some might say, sorrow and pain has blocked my throat. So I cannot speak or utter any words. You have a place where you can cry out to. He is our Lord Jesus Christ. You can come to Him and tell your sorrows. Only He can understand your personal sorrows. He alone respects your pain and agony and helps in the struggles that you go through and help in your helpless situation.
While everybody had insulted Magdalene, it was Jesus who had come in search of her. He was a God who had helped her. He had wiped her tears, So she came to the sepulchre early in the morning. Being the third day she thought she could see at least his dead body and apply the frankincense on His body . She came with much earnestness and desire to see Jesus. But she could not see Jesus inside the tomb. Then she sat beside the sepulchre and started crying. There were other woman who came there like her. Not seeing Jesus there in the tomb, they returned. They did not wait there any further. Mary ran out and informed the disciples that she went to the tomb to see the body of Jesus but the tomb was empty. Jesus was not there. The disciples, who loved Jesus both John and Peter, rushed to the tomb and found the tomb empty. So they returned. But Mary alone stayed back. She decided not to return without seeing Jesus. She stood there by the tomb crying.
Having seen the earnestness of Mary and her longingness to see the Lord, He came and stood behind her and asked her, “Women Why are you crying? Whom are you seeking? Then she thought that he must be the gardener, so she asked him , Just tell me where you have kept my Jesus. I will go and take my Jesus.” I need my Jesus. I cannot think of my life without Jesus. She cried saying, “I need my Jesus.” She said to the gardener, “If you have taken him and hidden him anywhere you tell me, I will go and take him.”She had great passion for Christ. She had come to see Jesus. It was then that Jesus revealed Himself and called her Mary. She immediately recognized His voice and cried out Rabboni which is to say, “Teacher.”
She was the first person to have been blessed to see Jesus after His resurrection. The reason is because she decided, that she would not go, without seeing Jesus. She was crying adamantly. Jesus asked her “ Whom have come seeking for?” He knows, that she had come in search of Jesus, who had delivered her from the darkness to that great light.
Just as Mary Magdalene remained in the dark, many youngsters having been trapped by some evil spirit and are still remaining in the dark. And are always, crying and are wasting their future. Some of you are in tears because of them. Jesus who met Mary Magdalene is now watching you crying and telling that God who fulfilled Magdalene’s desire will today fulfil your desire too. Today He will fulfil the desire of your children. He is asking, why are you crying? Whom are you seeking for help ? Today in case you are searching, wandering and looking out for a job. God says, that He will provide your daughter and son with good jobs and comfort you as He comforted Magdalene. He will bless your daughter with a gift of a child who has been waiting for many long years, God will open her closed womb and bless her with child. God who wiped the tears of Mary Magdalene will wipe away the tears of each and every one of you, who search for Him. Search and you shall find. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. From this message we see the true love of Magdalene and her longingness to see Jesus. Lord give us the same desire to see Jesus and worship Him. May we not return like others from our search in seeking Jesus. Help us to wait till He comes, like Magdalene.
