The Secrets of Jesus' Healing Ministry




Jesus Healing


QUESTION: 

Jesus healing - Why was healing so important in Jesus' ministry?

ANSWER: 

Healing was essential to the ministry of Jesus because He had the power to perform miracles. They flowed from within Him as heat from the sun, as wet from a waterfall, as dry from sirocco winds. He knew it, people sensed it, and to Him they came in droves and multitudes. In unconquered confidence, Jesus welcomed blind, crippled, leprous, even dead people into His presence. No problem loomed too great for His skill; none intimidated Him into silence. He performed all the healings we would expect since He came as God's Healer.

Healing was essential to the ministry of Jesus because He had compassion equal to His power, as Matthew 8:17 notes; as Matthew 14:14 illustrates. When the burgeoning throng interrupted His plans for a quiet retreat with His disciples, He healed their sick, then He fed them. That contrasted starkly with the disciples, who wanted the pesky crowds dispersed.

Knowing they could receive help if only they could access Him, people responded to that compassion, in bold, unorthodox ways. The Canaanite woman struggled through His disciples' desire to dismiss her, and His own initial, courteous refusal, to get what she knew she could trust Him to grant (Matthew 16:28). The woman with a hemorrhage crept silently through the crowd to merely touch His clothes (Mark 5:28). And the crowds "begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak," (Matthew 14:36), for "all who touched him were healed."

A Composite Gospel


This Composite Gospel using the text from The World English Bible (WEB) combines the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) plus a few verses from Acts and 1 Corinthians into one text.

In addition, The King James Version (KJV) and The Updated King James Version (UKJV) are also used in spots. The text coming from either the KJV or the UKJV is identified by being (enclosed in parentheses).

Why a Composite Gospel?

Have you ever read one of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John) wishing that you could somehow read all four of the Gospels together, at the same time? You read one story and you remember that there is more to the story but where is it? Each of the four Gospels give only a part of the picture. So when we read any one of the four Gospels, by itself, we are missing much of the story. We can only get the whole picture when all four Gospels are read together.

You can use your own Bible in trying to find the parallel stories in the four Gospels yourself. However this would be rather difficult and time consuming.

Biblical scholars have provided a very good way to study these parallel stories in the different gospels. They have placed related text in a side-by-side format and its called A Harmony of the Gospel. Below is a small example of a Harmony.

20 FACTS About the SABBATH Every Christian MUST KNOW!!!




Can the true seventh day be located?

Some teach that through various calendar changes and other factors, the true seventh day of the week cannot be accurately identified. But this is simply not true. Here are four evidences that help us identify the true Sabbath today:

1. The sixth day, seventh day, first day ...

According to Scripture, Christ died on Friday, the sixth day of the week, and rose on Sunday, the first day of the week. Practically all churches acknowledge this fact when they observe Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Here is the Bible evidence:

“This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before. That day was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew near” (Luke 23:52–54). This is strong evidence that Jesus died the day directly before the Sabbath. It was called “the preparation day” because it was the time to get ready for the Sabbath.

Let’s now look at the next few verses: “And the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed the tomb and how His body was laid. Then they returned and prepared spices and fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment” (vv. 55, 56). Please notice that the women rested over the Sabbath “according to the commandment.” The commandment says, “The seventh day is the Sabbath” (Exodus 20:10), so we know they were observing the seventh day (Saturday).

The very next verse says, “Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb” (Luke 24:1, 2).

How clearly these three consecutive days are described for us! Jesus died on Friday, the preparation day, the sixth day of the week. He rested in the tomb, “according to the commandment,” on Saturday, the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week. And then Jesus rose from the grave on Sunday, Easter Sunday, the first day of the week.

Do Angels Exist Episode 1




THE QUESTION OF MIRACLES: DO ANGELS EXIST?

ANGELIC MIRACLES

The Bible is filled with stories about angels, but many of us have had our view of angels confused by popular misconceptions about them, the principal of which is that angels do not actually exist anymore than fairies do, or wood nymphs or water sprites. But they do exist and the Bible attests to their existence innumerable times.

The word “angel” is simply the New Testament Greek word meaning “messenger,” so angels are powerful celestial beings created by God to carry his messages and to otherwise do his bidding.

In the Bible they are often said to be carrying swords—something my friend Peter Martin corroborates in the first story of this chapter.

So in saying what angels are—according to what we know from the Bible—we must also say what angels are not. For one thing, they are not fey, effeminate creatures, languid as a Victorian heroine. They are also not chubby and unthreatening cherubs.

Most angels we see in Scripture are exceedingly fierce and usually terrifying to humans, whether they have swords or not.

Many of us have heard the term “seraphs,” which refers to the seraphim, the highest order of angelic beings, having six wings and being charged with guarding the throne of God.

In the Eye of the Storm




What Does the Bible Say About Miracles?

BY WAYNE JACKSON

In discussing the theme of biblical miracles, several important areas of consideration must be surveyed.

First, exactly what is a miracle? People use that term rather loosely—frequently, not at all in a scriptural sense. And what are those tell-tale traits that identify the miracle and distinguish it from a natural phenomenon? If folks only knew what to look for in certifying the miraculous, they surely would be aware that supernatural deeds are not being performed in this age.

Second, what was the design of those “wonders” which are described so dramatically in the Bible? And how did those demonstrating these “signs” come to possess them? Further, does the Bible itself contain any information as to whether miraculous displays would be perpetual, i.e., until the end of time, or whether they were to be confined to a relatively brief span of history?

Finally, if genuine miracles are not a part of today’s world, just how does one explain the feats which are flaunted by so-called modern “faith-healers”? These are questions which we propose to answer in this study.
