is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Jesus went throughout
teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Good News of the Kingdom and healing EVERY
sickness among the people.
News about him
spread all over Syria, and people brought
ALL who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon possessed,
the epileptics and paralytics and HE HEALED THEM.
A man with leprosy
came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I
am willing” he said, “be clean!”
he was cured of his leprosy.
When Jesus came
into Peter’s house, he saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
He touched her hand and the fever left her and she got up and began to wait on him.
came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed ALL the sick. This
was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, Isaiah: He tool up our infirmities and carried our diseases.
Just then a
woman who had been subject to bleeding for 12 years came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself,
“If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart daughter,” he
said, “your faith has healed you” And the woman was
healed from that moment.
came and knelt before Jesus and said, “My daughter has just died. But come
and put your hand on her, and she will live.” Jesus got up and went with him and so did his disciples…when Jesus
entered the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd, he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead,
but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand,
and she got up.
As Jesus went
on from there, 2 blind men followed him calling out, “Have mercy on us Son of David.” When Jesus had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “DO YOU BELIEVE THAT I
AM ABLE TO DO THIS?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, “ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH WILL IT BE DONE TO YOU” and their sight was restored.
Jesus went through
all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Good News of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
He called his
12 disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness…As you go, preach
this message: THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR. Heal the sick, raise
the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely
you have received, freely give.
Going from that
place, he went into their synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there….then he said to the man, “Stretch
out your hand.” So he stretched out his hand and it was
completely restored, just as sound as the other.
Jesus, and he healed all their sick, warning them not to tell who he was. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: Here is my servant whom
I have chosen, the one I love, in
Him I delight; I will put my Spirit on Him,
and He will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry
out; no one will hear His voice in the streets.
A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out, till He leads justice to victory. IN
HIS NAME THE NATIONS WILL PUT THEIR HOPE.
Then they brought
Jesus a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus
healed him, so that he could both talk and see.
And when the
men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People
brought ALL their sick to Him and begged Him to let the sick just touch the edge of His cloak, and ALL who touched Him were healed.
woman from that vicinity came to Jesus crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly
from demon-possession.” …He answered, “I was sent only to the
lost sheep of Israel.” The woman
came and knelt before Him, “LORD HELP ME!” she said. Jesus replied, “It is not right to take the children’s
bread and toss it to their dogs.” “Yes, Lord,” she said, “but
even the dogs eat the crumbs from their master’s
Then Jesus answered, “WOMAN, YOU HAVE GREAT FAITH! YOUR REQUEST HAS BEEN GRANTED.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
2 blind men
were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard tha Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy
on us!” The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted
all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” Jesus stopped
and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” He asked. “Lord,” they answered, “WE WANT OUR SIGHT.” Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes.
they received their sight and followed Him.
The blind and
the lame came to Jesus at the temple, and He healed them.
Some men came,
bringing to Jesus a paralytic, carried by 4 of them. Since they could not get
him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and lowered the mat the paralyzed man was
lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking
to themselves, “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
Jesus knew in His Spirit that this is what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking
these things? Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘your sins are
forgiven’ or to say, ‘Get up take your mat and walk’? BUT that
you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins……”
He said to the paralytic, “I TELL YOU GET UP, TAKE YOUR MAT AND GO HOME.” He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all!
When Jesus got
out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet Him. This
man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke
the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs, he would cry out and cut himself. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “WHAT DO YOU WANT WITH ME, JESUS, SON OF
THE MOST HIGH GOD? SWEAR TO GOD THAT YOU WON’T TORTURE ME!” For Jesus
was saying to him, “COME OUT OF THIS MAN YOU EVIL SPIRIT!”
Then Jesus asked
him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion, for we
are many.” And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area…the demons begged Jesus “send
us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission and the evil spirits came out and went into the
pigs. The herd, about 2000 in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and drowned…..When the townspeople came
to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion
of demons, sitting there dressed and in his right mind….
There some people
brought a man to Jesus who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place His hand on the man. After He took him aside from the crowd, Jesus put His fingers into the man’s ears. Then He spit and touched the man’s tongue. Jesus looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to
him, “Ephphatha! (which means ‘be
opened’) At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
They came to
Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged
Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the
village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus
asked, “Do you see anything?”
The man looked
up and said, “I see people. They look like trees walking around.” Once
more, Jesus put His hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.
A man in the
crowd answered, “Teacher (Jesus), I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground.
He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your
disciples to drive out the spirit but they could not.” “Oh
unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you?
How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” So they
brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been this way?” “From childhood,” he answered. “It has thrown
him into the fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity
on us and help us.” “If you can?” Jesus said. “EVERYTHING
IS POSSSIBLE FOR HIM WHO BELIEVES.” Immediately the boy’s father
exclaimed, “I DO BELIEVE; HELP ME OVERCOME MY UNBELIEF!” When Jesus
saw the crowd was running to the scene, He rebuked the evil spirit. “YOU
DEAF AND DUMB SPIRIT,” He said, “I COMMAND YOU TO COME OUT OF HIM AND NEVER ENTER HIM AGAIN.” The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out.
The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “he’s dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet and he stood up. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we
drive it out?” Jesus replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer
LUKE 5;12, 13
was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When
he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man, “I AM WILLING,’ He said,
“BE CLEAN!” And immediately the leprosy
As He approached
the town gate, a dead person was carried out – the only son of his mother and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. When Jesus (the
Lord) saw her, His heart went out to her and He said, “Don’t cry.”
Then, he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He
MAN, I SAY TO YOU GET UP!” The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave
him back to his mother.
LUKE 10:1, 8
Jesus appointed 72 others and sent them 2 by 2 ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them,
… “When you enter a town and are welcome, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘the
kingdom of God
is near you.’ ”
On a Sabbath,
Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for 18 years. She was
bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her
forward and said to her, “WOMAN, YOU ARE SET FREE FROM YOUR INFIRMITY.” Then He put His hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Now on His way
to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria
and Galilee. As he was going into a village,
10 men who had leprosy met Him. They stood at a distance and called out in a
loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” When He saw them He
said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him – and he was a Samaritan.
followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off His right ear. But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And He touched the man’s ear and healed him.
And there was
a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea,
he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son who was close to death. “Unless
you people see miraculous signs and wonders,” Jesus told them, “you will never believe.” The royal officer said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
Jesus replied, “YOU MAY GO, YOUR SON WILL LIVE.” The man took
Jesus at His word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. When He inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “the fever left him yesterday at the 7th hour. Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.”
Here A great
number of disabled people use to lie – the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One
who was there had been an invalid for 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there
and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “DO YOU WANT TO GET WELL?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool
when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down
ahead of me.” Then Jesus said to him, “GET UP! PICK UP YOUR MAT AND
WALK.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and
As Jesus went
along, he saw a man born blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that
he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,”
said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.
As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is
coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the
world.” Having said this, Jesus spit on the ground, made some mud with
the saliva, put it on the man’s eyes. “Go,” he told the man, “wash in the pool of Siloam.” So
the man went and washed and came home seeing.
33, 34, 38-44
On His arrival,
Jesus found that Lazarus had been in the tomb for 4 days……. When Jesus saw Mary weeping and the Jews who had come
along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. “Where have you laid him?” Jesus asked. “Come and se Lord,” they replied…… Jesus, once more deeply
moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “But Lord,” said Martha, the
sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there for 4 days!” Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. Then Jesus
looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew
that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of thepeople standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” WHEN HE HAD SAID THIS, JESUS CALLED IN A LOUD VOICE, “LAZARUS COME OUT!”
The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips
of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said, “Take off
the grave clothes and let him go.”
-- how God anointed
Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how He went about doing good and healing ALL were under the power of the
devil, because God was with Him.
Jesus said to
them, “Go into all the earth and preach the Good News to
ALL creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does
not believe will be condemned. AND THESE SIGNS WILL FOLLOW THOSE WHO BELIEVE: IN MY NAME THEY WILL DRIVE OUT DEMONS, THEY WILL SPEAK IN NEW TONGUES, THEY WILL PICK
UP SNAKES WITH THEIR HANDS AND WHEN THEY DRINK DEADLY POISON, IT WILL NOT HURT THEMAT ALL;
THEY WILL PLACE THEIR HANDS ON SICK PEOPLE AND THEY WILL GET WELL!
Praise the Lord
O my soul, and forget not ALL HIS BENEFITS.
ALL MY SINS and HEALS ALL MY DISEASES;
He redeems my
life from the pit and crowns me with love and compassion. He satisfies my desires
with good things, so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
