Summary: The Lord, our miracle working God, who has promised to “put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.” Praise His glorious name.
“I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you. Exodus 15:26b. So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.” - Exodus 23:25
It is great news that we serve a miracle-working God. Amen. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The word ‘created’ in Hebrew is ‘bara’, which means to make from nothing. God did not rearrange anything. He made something out of nothing. And this event is full of mystery and miracle working power. He breathed into a handful of dirt, and a man became a living soul. He separated the day from the night and light from darkness.
Jesus of Nazareth was born in the womb of a virgin. Jesus grew to become the healer, and the miracle-working son of God our Lord. Our savior is a miracle-working God. There were no exceptions in the healing ministry of Jesus. He healed the lame, he healed the deaf, he healed the blind, and more. On some occasions, he healed with one touch, and on other occasions, he healed with two. In one incident, Jesus put dirt in his hand, spat into it, and put mud on to the eyes of a blind man. Brothers and sisters, there is no medical journal that recommends healing this way. There is no hospital that would recommend this practice. So, why did he do that? Because there was a belief among the Jewish people that there was healing virtue in the saliva of the firstborn male in every family. Jesus was saying to his Jewish audience, I am the firstborn of my Father. And I have healing power in my hand. The blind man was healed because Jesus is the healer. He healed many diseases. Leprosy, during the time of Jesus, was considered a death sentence because there was no cure. But with His touch, leprous bodies were healed.
To those of you who are in this sanctuary and those who are watching by online broadcast, Lord Jesus Christ can heal you. He can heal you he can save you he can redeem you. Your life is not over until God says it's over. Often, we give up on ourselves, but God doesn't give up on us.
Blessed are those who have Faith
He healed blood diseases. He healed nerve disease. He healed people, one by one. He healed people in groups. And He healed through long distance. Remember (Luke 7:2-10) when the centurion came to him and said, “my son who is a long way off; he needs healing.” And he said to Jesus, “if you would just speak the word.” Jesus replied to him, “I haven't seen this kind of faith in all of Israel.” And that military man received instant healing for his son who was a long distance away. Because there is no distance in prayer when God's children start to pray.
Do you need a miracle? The first step is to have faith in God. Have faith in God!! (Mark 11:22) For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37). Whatever you ask in My name, that will do, the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13). These three statements are very important verses in the Bible.
Faith starts out before you know or see your victories. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Without faith, the Bible says it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6-11) By faith, Noah built an ark, and he saved his family and his generations. By faith, Abraham looked for a city, whose builder and maker was God. By faith, Sarah conceived at the age of 90 and gave birth Isaac, the son of laughter. The Bible declares in the New Testament: have faith in God!
Joke: There was a fourth-grade boy who celebrated his birthday on crutches after falling from his tree-house. He couldn’t carry his cupcakes into school without help. Therefore, the father asked his sixth-grade son, Noah, to help his little brother carry them in. “I could,” he said, “but I do not want to.” The father decided to use this as a teaching moment. He asked Noah, “What would Jesus do?” Noah answered, “Jesus would heal him so he could carry his own cupcakes. Not me”
Blessed are those who reap His Benefits
Let's consider the spiritual foundation for miracles. Man is a twofold nature. You are physical, and you are spiritual. Both natures have been equally addressed in the Scriptures. God, ruler of the natural, is also the God of the Supernatural. We only have control of the matters in the natural world. We can create vaccines, medicine, and medical machines. However, let me tell you, let yourself be natural and let God be supernatural. There are many atheists and scientists in this world that believe that they do not need God, because they are able to solve and fix all the problems of this world themselves. When you get too heavenly minded, you're no longer earthly good. You lose your righteousness. The God who enforces the law of gravity and the law of physics, also enforces the laws of the supernatural. Your physical body is exposed to disease, and your soul has been corrupted by sin. But understand that both have been addressed in God's plan of redemption. Your sins have been forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ, and your body has been healed by the stripes on His wounds. The bill has already been paid. All you have to do is confess to the Father in Jesus’ name that you want this healing and God will do it. David explains in Psalm 103:2-3, “Bless the Lord O my soul and don't forget his benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.”
