Summary: What about the HEALINGS performed by Jesus? -----The MUTE speak: They can share their TESTIMONY and PREACH God’s Word! -----The LAME walk: They can “WALK by FAITH” ----- The DEAF hear: They can UNDERSTAND the WORD of God! ----- The BLIND see: They can
III. VALID FAITH!
Hebrews 2:4 (NLT), “God verified the message by signs and wonders and various miracles and by giving GIFTS of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose to do so.”
Witnessing VARIOUS MIRACLES gives us VALID FAITH!
The MIRACLES performed by God during the time of EXODUS is our VISUAL AID!
Goshen- “LIGHT in the MIDST of DARKNESS!”
-----God is in CONTROL. He is SOVEREIGN!
-----God is our PROVIDER! Etc… there are many implications of the VARIOUS MIRACLES during the Exodus!
The MIRACLES during the exodus “Pictures our SALVATION!” God always REMINDED Israel about how He BROUGHT out from SLAVERY, POVERTY, BONDAGE, etc…
The SAME MANNER we should be a LIVING TESTIMONY and WITNESS of Christ! A TESTIMONY on how we OVERCAME the Devil because of the FINISHED WORK of Jesus Christ at the CROSS! On how God RESCUED us from DARKNESS! On How God BLESSED us! Amen!
What about the HEALINGS performed by Jesus?
-----The MUTE speak: They can share their TESTIMONY and PREACH God’s Word!
-----The LAME walk: They can “WALK by FAITH”
----- The DEAF hear: They can UNDERSTAND the WORD of God!
----- The BLIND see: They can SEE God’s Glory and His KINGDOM (Full of LOVE, GENEROUSITY, PEACE, UNITY, HARMONY, etc…)

The TRUTH is, “IT IS FINISHED!” Still doubt? “IT IS WRITTEN!” “When God DECLARES, CONSIDER it DONE!” (Isaiah 46:10)
VALID FAITH is when we BELIEVE the WORD of TRUTH!
Ephesians 1:13-14, “In whom ye also TRUSTED, after that ye HEARD the WORD of TRUTH, the GOSPEL of your SALVATION: in whom also after that ye BELIEVED, ye were SEALED with that HOLY SPIRIT of PROMISE, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the PURCHASED POSSESSION, unto the PARISE OF HIS GLORY.” Amen!
And we know that, we are SEALED by the HOLY SPIRIT of PROMISE the moment we BELIEVE the GOOD NEWS! Amen!
The HOLY SPIRIT TEACHES us to DO GOOD! And learn yield the FRUITS of the HOLY SPIRIT!
The HOLY SPIRIT was given as our HELPER!
For IT IS WRITTEN, “IT IS NOT GOO FOR A MAN TO BE ALONE!”
Ephesians 1:12 “That we should be to the PRAISE OF HIS GLORY!”
