A pool is place where water is contained just like a swimming pool. This particular pool had five porches or entrances. These seem to me to be too insurficient for great throng seeking for healing and deliverance; more so that only one person get healed at a time.
A man had been there for 38 years and he could not get healed.
The church itself is like a pool of this nature where many people visit for one kind of miracle or the order and at some indefinite time miracle happen to some worshippers and this is not determined by how shot or long one has been there. Those who get their miracles when the pool is troubled are those who jumped in first before the others.
Who Are They?
1. Those whose heart and mind are present in the church or the service.
2. Those who have faith in what they are hearing.
3. Those who took some further steps towards getting their miracles> for example the woman with the issue of blood; the giver; the praiser; the worsippers;and the repentant. Acts. 9:36-42; 10:1-4; Matt.15:22-28
There is hope for everyone- though this man had been there for long and no man had helped him to obtain miracles, his day of visitation finally came as Jesus helped him.
We do not know why Jesus went there because he was going to worship in Jerusalem. He went out of his way to the pool where this man was. If you don't loose hope your time of visitation will soon come. it is my prayer that you will be around in the days of your visitation.

As a pastor for many years now i have always want to share something with my church workers every sunday before the beginning of the service so as not to make them serve others and without benefitting. I intend to use the opportunity that blog has provided to share some of my past teachings with you believing that God will bless you thereby.
The book of John is what I want to start with. Please feel free to send your comment.

what a faith for a pastor who is building what i consider to be the largest auditoruium in the world. The auditorium has over 300 stanchions. it has an altar that can contain about 5000 seat. it is about 1.8 km by 800m.
When an altar call is made the preacher would have to wait for about 30 minutes to allow those at the back to run forward to make their commitment to God. The steel structures were manufactured in China and shipped to Lagos in three large vessel. About 600 trailers brought them in. The Pastor with such a mustard seed faith is Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God
