We have begun with our second miracle of the Lord which is known as The Nobleman’s Son in Joh 4:43-54. However, we are now ready to look at some different individuals who faced similar problems and the different ways that they responded toward the Lord. Some of them responded in a positive way, while others responded differently and even went the opposite way with some opposite results. So we begin with our main passage,
Miracle # 2. First of all, there are some principles we covered and some we did not. The issue is I want you all to see that different believers respond in different ways to the same situation. And because of their response there were certain things our Lord could do and certain things He could not because of their responses.
For example, in Corinth there were a lot of different believers who responded in different reasons which brought on different ways to reveal different results. So we read in 1CO 11:17, some of the different results that took place because of the different choices that were being made among believers concerning what was going in the Churches where believers were warned of what was happening. And so we read in 1CO 11:17 But in giving this instruction, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse.
This is true in a lot of places where believers are challenged concerning what was going on in their own assemblies. In 1CO 11:18, the Apostle Paul reveals to a lot of believers the reasons that they were losing the unity that the Apostle Paul tried so hard to teach the believers in Corinth the reasons that they were losing the unity that He tried so hard to teach them how to remain in the unity that He tried so hard to preserve.
Paul wrote in 1CO 11:17 But in giving this instruction, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse. They had some unity but not enough and this inspired them to try and produce the unity that they all needed to solve the problems they had because of the unity that was there but now had become missing from their fellowship list. So that we read that they had lost and now had become useless and loss as were in 1CO 11:18 where we read, “For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and in part, the apostle Paul says; “I believe it.”

Then in 1CO 11:19, Paul says, “For there must also be factions among you, in order that those who are approved may have become evident among you.” “those who are approved” is the adjective adokimos which means, “those who pass the test of unity may be approved” or “may pass the tests that the Lord brings upon the church as a whole.” Even though this may have some negative vibes, these believers pass the test and glorify the Lord.

In 1CO 11:20 Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord's Supper, It is not to reveal who has or who has not passed the tests but what the Holy Spirit is doing to reveal who is with us and who is not. 1CO 11:21 for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and another is drunk. They completely missed out on what our Lord was trying to do. 1CO 11:22 What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God, and shame those who have nothing?

What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this I will not praise you. They were not using the Word for sharing and helping each other out, they were using the word for self- promotion. Now, it was because of this attitude our Lord could not do many miracles among His family and friends because they were too familiar with Him and they could not accept the fact that God was right before them, and living among them. And therefore, He knew that He was going to have problems with those that He lived with because He knew He was going to have to get away from His family and friends. Unfortunately, this was the very same attitude they had toward our Lord as well.

Now, in our main passage, let’s note as our background what this second miracle was really all about. We will go through it rather quickly since we have noted it many times before. Now, let’s go back to the time that the divine solution is our only solution. #problemsolved #problemsolution #problemsolve #problemsolver #problemssolving #problemsvsmiracles
