KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 9:35 KJV “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”
(Please read Matt 9: 27-36)
The life and activities of our Lord Jesus was all about the revelation of the will of God. He did what God would have done. In the passage above the Lord Jesus was involved in ministering healing to various groups of people. This act shows how God our Father wants all men to be well. In Matt 9:35, He preached in the synagogue, and healed all manner of sicknesses and diseases. Sickness is one of the most destructive assault of the devil against all humanity. Our Lord Jesus consistently healed anyone who came to him to in faith, expecting to be healed. OH 6:37 KJV “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” The Lord keeps open arms to receive and bless all who come to Him.
The teaching on the ready attitude of our Lord Jesus to heal the sick is a very divided matter among a number of Christians. I wish to ask one question, if the Lord Jesus was to be physically present with us, would He accept you and heal you, if you were to come to Him with your sickness.? The opposing view to Christ’ readiness to heal has been deepened by the issue of the thorn in Paul’s flesh. 2Corinth 12:7 KJV “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.” This scripture says that the thorn in his flesh was a personality, a messenger or an angel of Satan, that buffeted him. Truly Paul’s life was filled with untold persecutions, distresses, and difficulties. All these was the work of this angel of Satan sent to buffet or beat him up in various forms. (Please read 2nd Corinth 11:24-31)
In Joshua 23:13, the Lord referred to thorns in the eyes of the Israelites. At this instant too the thorns in their eyes were not sickness, but human beings who would torment them, like Paul faced. Secondly if the thorns were sickness, the scripture said, because of the abundance of revelations he was given this thorn in his flesh. I wish to ask you how much revelations do you have to be humbled with that sickness in your body. You can’t have the faith to be healed of those diseases if your mind is filled with such wrong interpretation of the scriptures. Please understand that it does not matter, whether you are an apostle or ‘an ordinary’ Christian, healing is always received by faith. To all who would believe shall not be put to shame. (Romans 10:11-13)
Thank you, heavenly father, for your will to see every one of us healed. Thanks also for the clear and unambiguous way to be healed. It is to receive your word by faith. You are not a respecter of persons, and so I take advantage of this provision and walk in my perfect health.
Romans 10:11-13 KJV ” For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
