And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them. One day He was teaching; and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing. But the crowds were aware of this and followed Him; and welcoming them, He began speaking to them about the kingdom of God and curing those who had need of healing.
Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Wherever He entered villages, or cities, or countryside, they were laying the sick in the market places, and imploring Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were being cured.
But the news about Him was spreading even farther, and large crowds were gathering to hear Him and to be healed of their sicknesses. And He could do no miracle there except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. They were utterly astonished, saying, "He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.
The Word of God came to heal our suffering—if we’re open to it.
And He said to them, "Go and tell that fox, 'Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I reach My goal. Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; get up and make your bed. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
The news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them. But the centurion said, "Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was. Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place; and there was a large crowd of His disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon,.
And all the people were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.
Is it Always God’s will to heal someone? | Bill Johnson Ministries
The Gospel of this Sunday cf. First, the Evangelist tells of a certain Jairus, one of the synagogue leaders, who comes to Jesus and begs Him to go to his house because his twelve-year-old daughter was dying.
Upon arriving at the house of Jairus, Jesus sends out those who had been weeping — there were also the women who were screaming loudly — and enters the room only with the parents and the three disciples. And immediately the girl gets up, as if waking up from a deep sleep v.
The two protagonists, the father of the girl and the sick woman, are not disciples of Jesus and yet they [are restored] because of their faith. They have faith in that Man. From this, we understand that everyone is admitted on the path of the Lord: no one should feel like an intruder, an abusive person or someone who has no right. To have access to His heart, to the heart of Jesus, there is only this required: to feel in need of healing and to entrust himself to Him.
I ask you: does each one of you feel in need of healing? Of something, some sin, some problem? And, if you hear this, do you have faith in Jesus? These are the two requirements to be healed, to have access to His heart: to feel oneself in need of healing and to entrust oneself to Him. Jesus goes to discover these people in the crowd and takes them away from anonymity, freeing them from the fear of living and daring. Anyone who accepts what I do accepts my Father, who sent me. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance.
The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice.
The blind see, The lame walk, Lepers are cleansed, The deaf hear, The dead are raised, The wretched of the earth learn that God is on their side. Then count yourselves most blessed! A weekend camper? What then? A sheik in silk pajamas? Not in the wilderness, not by a long shot. A prophet? Really listening? I came feasting and they called me a lush, a friend of the riffraff. The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Doom, Bethsaida! If Tyre and Sidon had seen half of the powerful miracles you have seen, they would have been on their knees in a minute. And Capernaum! With all your peacock strutting, you are going to end up in the abyss. If the people of Sodom had had your chances, the city would still be around. This is a unique Father-Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. Hungry, the disciples were pulling off the heads of grain and munching on them. There was a man there with a crippled hand. Surely kindness to people is as legal as kindness to animals! The Pharisees walked out furious, sputtering about how they were going to ruin Jesus. A lot of people followed him, and he healed them all. He also cautioned them to keep it quiet, following guidelines set down by Isaiah:. Jesus healed him, gave him his sight and hearing.
Tie him up, though, and you can clean him out. The fruit tells you about the tree. How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you.
Mark 1:29-39 – He Came to Heal and Save
There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation. Give us some hard evidence that God is in this. How about a miracle? All you want is something to titillate your curiosity, satisfy your lust for miracles. It then runs out and rounds up seven other spirits more evil than itself and they all move in, whooping it up.
They were outside trying to get a message to him. These are my mother and brothers. Obedience is thicker than blood. In no time at all a crowd gathered along the shoreline, forcing him to get into a boat. Using the boat as a pulpit, he addressed his congregation, telling stories.
A farmer planted seed. As he scattered the seed, some of it fell on the road, and birds ate it. Some fell in the weeds; as it came up, it was strangled by the weeds.
Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams. You know how it works. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. The people are blockheads! And God-blessed ears—ears that hear!
