Jesus encountered a prophet and taught him a significant lesson about the use of our hands.
Prophet Larry Randolph
Larry Randolph is an author and a prophet who came from three generations of prophets. He grew up in the pulpit and started preaching at the age of six. In an interview with Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural,” Larry shares one of the most unforgettable encounters he had with Jesus Christ. And it was during that encounter that he learned a lot about human hands.
One night in 1974, when he was still a young man pastoring a church, he woke up to someone walking beside his bedroom window. He immediately knew it was Jesus because of how his presence radiated the entire room.
“I heard the noise of someone walking beside my bedroom window. As this noise turned to a corner, I realized that it was a divine being because the presence was incredible and the awe was incredible and it was Jesus… [He] began to radiate the most incredible love I’ve ever experienced in my life,” Larry recalled.
Use of our hands
In an instant, the tangible love of Jesus became a haze over his room. And then suddenly, Jesus spoke to Larry. Jesus asked him to look at his hands and He quoted a Scripture from the beloved King David in Psalms.
“He said to me, ‘Look at your hands.’ And I looked at my hands and… He said to me, ‘You are fearfully, awesomely, and wonderfully made. You’re one of a kind, you’re an extraordinary human being, there’s none like you. I made you just as you are and I love you unconditionally. You have a divine purpose that no one else could do, you have a gifting.”
It was during that encounter that Jesus healed Larry of his timidity and gave him a purpose for his life. It was also during that moment that Jesus taught him what the purpose of our hands is. Our hands are the extension of Jesus Christ here on earth.
“I put your hands on your arms because your hands are an extension of Me. I’m not in this physical world now, you are. You are My hands extended. I never want you to shove with your hands or push with your hands, hit someone with your hands, or push people away with your hands. Your hands are made for healing, your hands are made to embrace, to affirm people, to touch people, to minister to people, to encourage people.”
Minister from Love
Larry also learned that night that we ought not to focus on the giftings, but on the love of Jesus Christ. His love is bigger than the gifts and anointings we have received. As followers of Jesus Christ, we should minister to everyone out of and from love and not from the gift.
