Day 157: What A Healing Jesus!

Day 157: What A Healing Jesus!
June 30, 2015 Joel Grantham

“Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.”  Matthew 4:24

Jesus never turned a sick person away!  Never!  Not one time!  You cannot find one scripture in the Word of God where Jesus ever did NOT heal a sick person who came to Him for healing.  Why?  Because it is ALWAYS God’s will to heal the sick!

Remember, the Jesus that we read about in the four Gospels healing the sick is still the SAME Jesus we love and serve today.  He has not changed!  Hebrews 13:8 declares, “Jesus Christ is THE SAME yesterday, today and forever.”

In this verse of Scripture we see clearly the will, the nature and the power of Jesus Christ.

First we see His will.  It tells us that they brought to Jesus “ALL SICK PEOPLE…and He healed them.”  Plain and simple, it is ALWAYS God’s will to heal the sick!  Jesus never turned one sick person away. He never told not even one of them that God was trying to teach them something through their sickness, or that it wasn’t His perfect timing to heal them just yet.  No, it simply says that He healed ALL!

Secondly, we see His nature.  Jesus has a healing nature.  It is WHO He is!  In John 10:10 He said, “I have come that they may have LIFE, and that they may have it more abundantly.”  Jesus does not take life, He gives life.  Jesus does not put sickness on people, He removes it.  Healing is a part of His divine nature.  He is Jehovah Rophe, the Lord your healer.

Lastly, we see His power.  Not only is it His will and nature to heal the sick, but here we learn that He has the power to heal the sick.  It says, “They brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments…and He healed them.”  There is no sickness that Jesus cannot heal!  It goes on to say that He even delivered the demon-possessed.  In other words, Jesus has complete power over the devil!

So let your faith be encouraged today.  The same Jesus that you trusted to save your soul from sin, you can also trust to heal your body from sickness and disease.  He has not changed!  If He healed ALL then, He will HEAL ALL today!


Confession:   My Jesus is a healing Jesus!
