Health and Healing #6

1 When He was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.
3 And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

16 When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Matthew 8:1-3, 16-17

The leper did not apparently doubt Jesus’ ability to heal, but was not sure of his willingness. Jesus said, “I will”. The scripture is clear here that Jesus healed all who came seeking.

God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). What He has done for another, He will do for you.

If you pay attention long, you will hear some assert that such miracles have passed away before our current era. They will, no doubt, rationalize their excuses in some way. Do not believe them, their rationalizations are merely the opinions of men being vaunted over the nature and character of the Lord. Instead, have faith in the eternal consistency and love of God (Hebrews 13:8).

  1. ” . . . have faith in the eternal consistency and love of God (Hebrews 13:8).” Amen and Amen. Perhaps our health trials are His way of “searching our hearts” and ‘trying them” as the psalmist says.

  2. We don’t often hear about leprosy in my part of the world. I happen to be writing about a hospital in Shashamene and spent the day working on edits. So these Words are especially moving as I head to bed. Thank you, Jon. (I’ll reread them.)
