Summary: THE GOSPEL OF MARK INTRODUCES US TO SOME PEOPLE WHO`S MALADIES WERE BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE TRADITIONAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
Mark 10:46-52 (AMP)
46 Then they came to Jericho. And as He was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a great crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, a son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, saying, Jesus, Son of David, have pity and mercy on me [now]!
48 And many severely censured and reproved him, telling him to keep still, but he kept on shouting out all the more, You Son of David, have pity and mercy on me [now]!
49 And Jesus stopped and said, Call him. And they called the blind man, telling him, Take courage! Get up! He is calling you.
50 And throwing off his outer garment, he leaped up and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus said to him, What do you want Me to do for you? And the blind man said to Him, Master, let me receive my sight.
52 And Jesus said to him, Go your way; your faith has healed you. And at once he received his sight and accompanied Jesus on the road.
VERY BRIEFLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD AND THE GUIDIANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS
I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
THE GOSPEL OF MARK INTRODUCES US TO SOME PEOPLE WHO`S MALADIES WERE BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE TRADITIONAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
IN THE 5TH CHAPTER OF MARK
HE INTRODUCES US TO A WOMAN WITH A ISSUE OF BLOOD
WHO HAD SPENT ALL OF HER MONEY ON SEVERAL DOCTORS AND NONE OF THEM DID HER ANY GOOD
BUT ONE DAY SHE HEARD THAT DR JESUS WAS PASSING BY AND SHE PRESS HER WAY THROUGH THE CROWD
AND TOUCH THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT AND WAS MADE WHOLE
IN CHAPTER 7 HE INTRODUCES US TO A SYROPHOENICIAN WOMAN WHOSE DAUGHTER WAS DEMOM POSSESSED
BUT SHE CAME TO JESUS
BECAUSE THE MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS OF HER DAY DID`NT KNOW HOW TO TREAT HER DAUGHTERS CONDITION
BUT SHE WENT TO DR JESUS
AND JESUS HEALS HER WITH CURING WORD
IN THE 8TH CHAPTER OF MARK WE FIND A BLIND MAN WHO HAD GIVEN UP HOPE ON EVER SEEING AGAIN
BUT JESUS MAKE A SALVE OF SPIT AND MUD AND RESTORES THE BLIND MAN SIGHT
AND IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE PEOPLE IN MARK`S COMMUNITY HAD A HEALTH CARE CRISIS
BUT WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WE`RE DEALING WITH A SPIRITUAL HEALTH CARE CRISIS
AND JUST LIKE THEY HAVE OPEN ENROLLMENT ONCE A YEAR IN THE PHYSICAL HEALTH CARE PROFESSION
I STOP BY ------------------------------- TO LET YOU KNOW THAT JESUS HAS SPIRITUAL OPEN ENROLLMENT 365 DAYS A YEAR AND 366 IN LEAP YEAR
AND JUST IN CASE THERES SOMEONE HERE
SITTING ON THE SAME ROW YOU`RE SITTING ON JUST MIGHT BE SITTING IN THE SAME SEAT YOU ARE SITTING IN
HAVE`NT ENROLL IN GOD`S SPIRITUAL HEALTH PLAN
I NEED TO TELL YOU TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO ENROLL
AND IT`S GOOD TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE
BUT I NEED TO TELL YOU IT`S BETTER TO HAVE ASSURANCE
YOU SEE INSURANCE CAN ONLY DO YOU GOOD ON THIS SIDE
BUT ASSURANCE CAN DO YOU GOOD ON THIS SIDE AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE JORDAN
BUT AS WE EXAMINE THIS TEXT IT`S OPEN ENROLLMENT TIME FOR BARTIMAEUS
AND HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF AN OPPURINTY OF A LIFE TIME
EVEN THOUGH HE`S BLIND PHYSICALLY
