Summary: Jesus gave sufficient proof to all the people who were around then, of His power and compassion when he healed the right ear of Malchus, the servant of the high priest immediately by just a single touch. Glorious!
Eyes that see…
Luke 22:50”And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus said, "No more of this!" And he touched his ear and healed him.”
Jesus gave sufficient proof to all the people who were around then, of His power and compassion when he healed the right ear of Malchus, the servant of the high priest immediately by just a single touch. Glorious! Those ferocious guys failed to understand they had a divine Surgeon in their midst! How sad! Being filled with venom, anger and envy, they failed to recognize the Healer! Not intimidated by the turbulence, Jesus went on to do good in the most darkest hour of His life. Amen. We do need ‘spiritual eyes’ to see and understand a miracle! Are you with me? I may preach my guts out; yet, we need eyes to see God in the Word!
When I shared the miraculous healing that I received through the birth of my son Joshua with an elderly person and glorified God, he smugly replied that all women go through problems during delivery and for few it may be extreme and my miracle was no big deal; he dismissed my healing as just a coincidence. Sadly he was not able to see God in my miracle!
I am speaking to someone out there today! I have shared the Gospel interwoven with my numerous testimonies with you each day; yet for few, the doubts, fear and worries still linger on! Some feel ‘such’ miracles happen only for the selected few, that is wrong notion, you have failed to grasp the power of God in the miracle, instead of reading my testimonies as an interesting incident or an excellent piece of writing, please do see the power of God.
Living in an era of rapid advancement of technology, the eyes of people have been closed to understand the power of God. I went to see an aunt who had just undergone an operation for cancer treatment; I was surprised to see her pleasantly sitting on the bed with no sign of operation. She had underdone operation through Laparoscopic surgery, though expensive, yet these include reduced pain due to smaller incisions and shorter recovery time. With such treatments available today, people are more keen in enrolling themselves for a good ‘medical insurance’ scheme rather than being committed to Church and God. Let me share another incident with you, when the daughter had an accident, the father very proudly declared, ‘all her expenses will be reimbursed because she is sufficiently covered under medical insurance scheme.’ Friend, let me warn you, there comes a time in our life when no medical insurance can cover our expenses or our wounds except His Hands! I invite you to set right your life, drop the negative feelings towards God and come closer to Him to develop a personal relationship with Him.
The servant of the High priest Malchus had an opportunity on that day to feel the touch of Jesus over his ears and witness the power of God! Did he grasp the power of God, though?
