It was a BIG revelation Mary had and always pursued all the way: At The Feet of JESUS we get dominion and prevail in our warfare – waging the good warfare of Faith.
This is because GOD has “put all things under His Feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things to The Church, Which is His Body, The Fullness of Him Who fills all in all.” (Ephesians 1:22-23).
By this POWERFUL revelation, Mary was merry at The Feet of JESUS while her sister Martha was “distracted by much serving…worried and troubled about many things.” (Luke 10: 40 – 41).
JESUS highly commended and recommended Mary’s choice saying: “one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:42).
But, to her sister Martha, THE LORD earlier said: “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.” (Luke 10:41).
Most people, believers and unbelievers alike, are worried and troubled about many things, yet only ONE Thing is needed in this life: always being at The Feet of JESUS – by seeking Him, hearing Him and obeying Him (understanding and doing His Will in ALL things – Ephesians 5:17).
Whatever your problem, it can only be solved at The Feet of JESUS – for that’s where we get The Glory and The Dominion to overcome.
And whatever praise we have, it can only be given at The Feet of JESUS.
At The Feet of JESUS, Mary:
● Heard His Word continually.
This we also must do daily by fervently reading The Word, meditating on It, and obeying It with The Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Let not a day go by without fervently studying The Word of THE LORD, hungry for It more than your necessary food. Even if it’s just a Piece of It, get It into your whole spirit, soul and body.
Just as your body needs food to be strong, much more your spirit needs The Word of GOD to thrive. And the more you eat The Word the better. Not just for your spirit, but your whole spirit, soul and body.
The less you eat The Word the worse for your whole spirit, soul and body.
Behold I tell you a mystery. By GODLY science, we know that blood is produced in bone marrow.
(There are two types of bone marrow in the body: red bone marrow and yellow bone marrow. Red bone marrow produces blood. And from yellow bone marrow, the following are produced: fat, cartilage, and bone. Further reading on this can be found here).
Now, GOD The Creator tells us that “the life of the flesh is in the blood”. (Leviticus 17:11).
So then, life is in blood, and blood is produced in bone marrow.
Very indispensably, we are commanded to enter GOD’s Rest by putting all Faith in Him and His Word (Hebrews 4:1-11),
“For The Word of GOD is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12.
As mentioned above, red bone marrow produces blood, and from yellow bone marrow, fat, cartilage, and bone are produced.
And “The Word of GOD is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow”.
Therefore, when you fervently study, hear, meditate on, and obey The Word of GOD, apart from sorting out your soul and spirit, It gets into your joints and marrow where blood as well as fat, cartilage, and bone are produced from.
GOD’s Word goes into your body’s fat, cartilage, bones and blood for your wellbeing, by providing Divine healing and nourishment for your body as well as deliverance from destructions — physical, emotional and spiritual.
The Word of GOD heals, delivers and preserves our whole spirit, soul and body.
“He sent His Word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.” Psalm 107:20.
Living on The Word of GOD secures this life and The Life to come.
The Word of GOD can heal and deliver anytime, anywhere.
About five years ago, I was in the mission field alone. One night, probably around 2:00 am, the gates of hell came against me very violently.
I was so ferociously attacked in my body so suddenly. Some internal organs (possibly the liver, lungs, kidneys, among others) were being TORMENTED. The pain was EXCRUCIATINGLY unbearable.
Groaning and holding my rib cage in agony, I was writhing in pain and PRAYING! I was quoting and deploying Scripture after Scripture back to back — commanding, proclaiming, and making supplications as THE HOLY SPIRIT amazingly gave me Utterance.
After about thirty minutes of fierce fightback, peace filled everywhere there had been pain.
I went back to sleep as though I had not just been in the throes of death.
No medical treatment on earth could have achieved that. Only The Word of GOD.
Brethren, The Word of GOD is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow.
Also, we do what Mary did by reading and listening to anointed Words/books and Messages as led by THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Please check always with THE HOLY SPIRIT before you read or listen to any such.
● Anointed Them (The Feet of JESUS) with a most expensive oil — costing nearly a year’s wages.
Judas Iscariot, for his longstanding nefarious interest of habitual thievery, complained about the monetary value of a pound of very costly oil of spikenard with which Mary anointed The Feet of JESUS, and wiped Them with her hair. (John 12:3).
“But JESUS said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for The Day of My Burial.”” John 12:7.
JESUS said that what Mary did was for His Burial.
This event took place just six days before The Passover at which THE LORD was crucified for us.
Thus, with her dramatic Divinely arranged and inspired anointing service to JESUS, Mary was proclaiming THE LORD’s Death.
Chiefly, we proclaim THE LORD’s Death when we take The Communion, (1 Corinthians 11:26).
Therefore, with GREAT thanksgiving, reverence and GODly fear, please do this often. (We do it every night).
We must also exceedingly honour THE LORD by always thanking Him, profusely praising Him for The Sacrifice of Himself to deliver us from the hands of the murderer (the devil).
It is a matter for the most serious consideration and celebration. That, we were like sheep to the slaughter by this hyper-psychotic supernatural criminal called the devil and Satan.
BUT our LORD JESUS CHRIST, through His Death, destroyed him who had the power of death and released us from his bondage. And we must always execute this Victory, triumphing over the devil and his angels in THE CROSS.
Furthermore, as led by THE HOLY SPIRIT, we must go forth preaching to others His Sacrifice for our Salvation — “explaining and demonstrating that THE CHRIST had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This JESUS Whom I preach to you is THE CHRIST.” ” (Acts 17:3).
● Wiped Them (The Feet of JESUS) with her hair.
A woman’s hair is a glory to her (1 Corinthians 11:15).
With ardent adoration, Mary was deeply glorifying THE LORD when she wiped His Feet with her hair.
This is what we must likewise do at The Feet of JESUS.
“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of The Scriptures might have hope.” Romans 15:4.
With GREAT JOY, we must be glorifying JESUS always, yes, singing and making melody in our heart to THE LORD, being merry like Mary at The Feet of JESUS.
GLORY! GLORY TO “JESUS CHRIST…Him Who loved us and washed us from our sins in His Own BLOOD”. (Revelation 1:5).
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.
~ Jacob Addison Awagah
Jacob, an apostle of JESUS CHRIST by The Will of GOD, according to The Promise of Life which is in CHRIST JESUS, (2 Timothy 1:1).
Like John, I like to put my head to The Heart of JESUS so as to know and do His Will always. What’s in His Heart is what matters now and FOREVER. His Heart’s Desire is my only desire.
As John was, I am the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20)
And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
NB. Surely, “the disciple whom JESUS loves” and “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS”, like ALL The Promises of GOD, are available to every believer to obtain, just as John and Paul did.
“And having been perfected, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
