Believe Jesus

Rev. Tse Amable | July 10, 2024 | John 13:18-30


“I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am he. John 13:19 (NIV)



One puzzle of life on the earth is that our knowledge of what will happen to us tomorrow is limited. No human being knows for certainty what will happen to him or her, to a family member, to a friend or to the world beyond this moment we are living in. The craving to know what will happen to us has pushed some people to resort to unscriptural means such as divination, soothsaying, sorcery, palm-reading, astrology, etc. All these means of knowing “tomorrow” were banned by Jehovah in the commandments (see Deuteronomy 18:10-12).


Thankfully, our Master, Jesus Christ,  knows everything about us and this world. He knows our end from the beginning and every single point between the beginning and the end because he is the Omniscient God - the ALL-KNOWING and the ONLY WISE GOD. One hymn writer wrote:


God holds the key of all unknown,

And I am glad;

For what I cannot, He can see,

And in His care I saved shall be,

Forever blest.




The Bible says “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29). All that you need to know is already revealed in the scriptures. That is more than adequate for you.


The truth that Jesus Christ knows every minutest detail about each of us and the world in which we live is the reason why you should believe him. Believe what he says about you and your future.



Is your anxiety about the quality of life you are living leading you to seek guidance through means and mediums the word of God forbids? Why is it difficult for you to believe that Jesus Christ knows everything about your “tomorrow” and to rest in this truth?


Lord Jesus, I want to believe you but I find it difficult to rest in the knowledge that you hold the key to the things I do not know. Help me to believe you and to trust you for whatever may come my way. Amen.




DAILY word study: HAPPEN

The word "happen" is translated from the Greek word "γίνομαι" (ginomai), which means to come into being, to occur, or to take place. It implies an event or action that unfolds according to a sequence of time. In John 13:19, Jesus uses "happen" to emphasize His foreknowledge of future events, specifically His betrayal. By predicting what will occur, Jesus aims to strengthen the disciples' faith, affirming His divine omniscience and identity as the Messiah. This preemptive revelation is intended to reassure the disciples that Jesus is indeed in control and aware of what lies ahead, reinforcing their belief in Him as the one who holds tomorrow. Reflections:  Believing in Jesus as the one who knows tomorrow provides comfort and assurance, affirming that nothing is outside His knowledge or control. How does believing that Jesus knows what will happen tomorrow impact your faith and daily trust in Him?
