Jesus Walk In

Luke 24:
Luke 24:35–49 NLT
Then the two from Emmaus told their story of how Jesus had appeared to them as they were walking along the road, and how they had recognized him as he was breaking the bread. And just as they were telling about it, Jesus himself was suddenly standing there among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. But the whole group was startled and frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost! “Why are you frightened?” he asked. “Why are your hearts filled with doubt? Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it’s really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do.” As he spoke, he showed them his hands and his feet. Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he ate it as they watched. Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ You are witnesses of all these things. “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”
Jesus suddenly appears to the disciples after He was resurrected from the dead.
Do you understand the significance of the resurrection?
Jesus opened there minds to understand the scriptures.

Why did Jesus Open their minds?

Jesus opened there minds because they were now going to be fulfilling what mankind was intended to do in the first place.
They were going to govern the earth by the authority of heaven!
Jesus opened their minds so they could discover the secrets of the scriptures, so they could see their reason for living here.
Have you ever asked the question about the Kingdom “To what End?”
Matthew 28:18–20 NLT
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18 NIV
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Why did Jesus command His disciples to make disciples? Jesus just basically told them to duplicate themselves.
Matthew 28:18-
Jesus could have just told them to go and preach the gospel, but he told them to make disciples.
Is this not a command for us as well?
We are to submit ourselves to be disciples and we are to create disciples. Refusing to follow His command is like eating the fruit when God told you not to.

Jesus Gave Ordinary People the Mission

Jesus gave Peter the fisherman, Matthew the tax collector the work of the gospel.
However, they first needed to be disciples.
