The Unusual Mercies of God 8
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The unusual mercies of God create amazing transformations in people’s lives.
Saul was transformed from the chief persecutor of the church, to become the great apostle Paul.
Galatians 1:23 NKJV
“But they were hearing only, “He (Saul) who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy.”
Ruth was a childless Gentile widow, forbidden to enter the congregation of God because of her cursed Moab ancestry.
She was transformed into a great mother of Zion.
She became the great grandmother of King David.
She thus entered the lineage of the Messiah.
Matthew 1:5b-6a NIV
“…Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of King David.”
A Samaritan woman also received the unusual mercies of God.
She was totally messed up in her marital life.
She had suffered five failed marriages.
Jesus asked for her husband.
John 4:16 NIV
“He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
She claimed to have no husband.
John 4:17 NIV
“I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband.”
Jesus revealed some shocking facts about her life.
She had been married 5 times and was now living with a man out of wedlock.
John 4:18 NIV
“The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”
Yet she received the unusual mercy of becoming the first person that Jesus plainly told, that He was the Messiah.
John 4:25 NIV
“The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
Christ replied,
John 4:26 NIV
“Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
May you also receive the divine mercy of clear revelation of biblical truths.
May you be totally healed, restored and saved, in Jesus’ name.
