Jesus Healing blind men at Jericho

29 As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30 There were two blind men sitting by the roadside. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31 The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet; but they shouted even more loudly, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” 32 Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him. (Matthew 20:29-34)

When Jesus was passing through the street, two blind men shouted, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!”. In our daily life we can see blind men (beggars) sitting on the road side, in train, in bus shouting the same kind of words, ” have mercy on me, please give something”. How many of us listen to those words, many times we just ignore their words.

Verses 31 – The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet; but they shouted even more loudly, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!”

This happens many times with us also. it is very difficult for a common man to meet any VIP or Religious leader. Volunteers try to stop them from meeting them. Here what the blind men did is that they shouted even more loudly, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” Jesus heard their voice and (verses – 32) Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want me to do for you?”. 33 They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” This verses make us to understand that, if we feel our prayers are not heard, we should not get disappointed, but we should pray more and more, pray with crying to and then Lord will surely hear our voice and help us.

Look at the next verses 34 Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him. Jesus is compassionate. He never ignore the prayer with faith. He touched their eyes and immediately they regained their sight. Only a touch of Jesus is enough for healing. Next word is very important, “they followed him“. Usually when we feel sick we pray to God and after healing we forget him, stop praying. This is not good. We should thank Jesus for his blessing and healing, we should follow him.

This miracle prove that if we shout loudly, pray with full faith and devotion, Jesus will surely heal us.

Jesus Cures an Epileptic Boy with a Demon

Jesus Cures an epileptic Boy with a DemonEpilepsy is a neurological disorder in which the nerve cell activity in brain is disturbed, causing a seizure during which experience abnormal behaviour symptoms and sensations, including loss of consciousness. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others repeatedly twitch their arms or legs.

Many years back I have seen patients attacked with epilepsy. That was really sad and frightening situation. At that time I heard that cause of epilepsy is demon and people used to make the patient to hold bunch of keys, because they believed that demon will go away once iron keys are in the hand.

                Matthew 17
14 When they came to the crowd, a man came to him, knelt before him,
15 and said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; he often falls into the fire and often into the water.
16 And I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
17 Jesus answered, “You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him here to me.”
18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

From the father’s words “he suffers terribly; he often falls into the fire and often into the water”, it is obvious that the boy’s condition was a difficult situation. Just imagine what will be the situation and struggling when a person attacked with epilepsy fall into the fire or water. If that also with demon, then the situation is very dangerous. The father also reports to Jesus that his disciples were unable to cure his son. When the father told Jesus about the disciples inability to heal the boy, he wasn’t pleased. In response to the father’s statement Jesus answered, “You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him here to me.” This sentence shows how much was Jesus hurt when he heard that his disciples were unable to cure the boy. Jesus’ response seems stern; but it is really tempered with love and compassion. We see at once Jesus’ dismay with the disciples’ lack of faith and his concern to meet the need of this troubled boy and his father. With one word of command Jesus rebukes the evil spirit that has caused this boy’s affliction and tells the spirit to “never enter him again”.

What kind of faith does the Lord expect of us, especially when we meet set-backs and trials? Inevitably there are times when each of us disappoint others or disappoint ourselves when we suffer some kind of set- back or failure. If we pray with expectant faith God will give us the means to overcome difficulties and obstacles.

The father was struggling to have faith due to the longevity and severity of the boy’s affliction. Sometimes we also struggle to have faith in Jesus. We pray, but Satan try to make us fool with wrong thoughts against prayer and Jesus. He try to destroy our faith in Jesus. At that time Jesus will ask us also “You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you?”. Sometimes when we do not get healing or answer from Jesus as expected timely, we also ask to Jesus like his disciples asked “Why could we not cast it out?”.  Jesus will immediately answer to us “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,” it would have surely happened.

So let us pray to Jesus for strong faith and trust in Jesus.

“Lord Jesus, help my unbelief! Increase my faith and trust in your saving power. Give me confidence and perseverance, especially in prayer. And help me to bring your healing love and truth to those I meet, Amen”.

When you meet trials and disappointments how do you respond? Do you pray with faith and trust in Jesus?

 

 

Jesus Heals Two Blind Men

Jesus healing the blind menMatthew 9:27-31

27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
28 When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.”
29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.”
30 And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, “See that no one knows of this.”
31 But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district.

The faith of these two men is stressed in the story. First, they cried out to Jesus for help. They formed an opinion about Jesus in order to do that; they believed that He was able to heal them. The Lord was fully able to give them sight, but He waited until He was able to draw from them a statement of their faith. Jesus probably waited til they followed Him indoors to test their faith further.  Jesus asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”  Their answer to Jesus’ question affirms their strong faith.

Jesus touched their eyes. He gives sight to blind. He heals souls by the power of his grace going with his word, and he puts the cure upon their faith. Those who apply to Jesus Christ, shall be dealt with, not according to their status, fancies, nor according to their profession, but according to their faith. It does not matter whether we are  receiving physical sight or spiritual understanding, faith is the prerequisite. Whoever comes to Christ must believe that He is the promised Messiah, Son of David, Greatest Physician and that He has the power and the authority to heal physically and spiritually.

Remember, when we pray to Jesus for any kind of healing or any other matter, He is asking us ““Do you believe that I am able to do this?”. Your prayer will be answered according to your reply to Jesus. Sometimes He may wait us to follow Him indoors to test faith further. Sometimes no answer will receive immediately, no healing will happen immediately as we expect, but if we continue praying with strong faith, Jesus will surely answer and heal.

Some people are physically blind and some are spiritually blind. Let us pray for everyone to have strong faith in Jesus. May Jesus heal them, give them physical sight to see the world and spiritual sight to lead a happy and successful life as per the will of God.

Jesus heals a paralytic – Jesus healing miracles

Healing of the Paralytic ManParalysis is the complete loss of muscle function for one or more muscle groups. Paralysis can cause loss of feeling or loss of mobility in the affected area.  Some of you might have seen paralysed people lying on bed, even some of them are lying in that stage for months or years. Their family members have to help them to do everything. They have to remove their urine and stool, make them clean and wash their body, change their dress, means everything. For some people it is burden for them, but most people take care of the paralysed with love and affection. God will surely bless them for their service and love.

Jesus Heals a Paralytic Mark 2:1-12

1When he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home.
2 So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them.
3 Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.
4 And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay.

The bible says “Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. ” This paralyzed man could not walk or move himself. Four people carried him to Jesus with strong faith that Jesus can heal him. But because of the crowd, they could not enter in the house. When they realize that they cannot possibly get him through the door, they carry their helpless paralytic friend upstairs to the roof and lower the bed in front of Jesus as He is speaking.  The roof might not have made with large pieces of wood and might not have shingles, but had tiles or such material which could be lifted or broken through easily to make a hole.  Just imagine, if this was happened today, how could they make a hole in the multi storied/concrete roof ?  These men were so sure that Jesus would be able to heal him, otherwise they wouldn’t have gone to so much trouble. Their determination to place him before Jesus displays their faith that he would be healed.


5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

The first thing Jesus said when He saw that they believed was, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”  Probably not what the man or his friends expected. He came to Jesus because he wanted to walk.

Except that Jesus knew what this man needed most because he knew what was in his heart.  Jesus knew that being paralyzed would be difficult but it was even worse not to be forgiven. Jesus is the Son of Man, and God has given him the power to forgive sins and heal people.


6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts,
7 “Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
8 At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, “Why do you raise such questions in your hearts?
9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Stand up and take your mat and walk’?
10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic—
11 “I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go to your home.”
12 And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

 

The healing of the paralytic impressed and excited everyone present. In today’s world also we can see people without faith. They may ask how prayer can heal a person. They do not believe in prayer, they go to church just as a routine, do not have confession even once in a year, no repentance, just live in the present world enjoying the life.

Many of us are sick and under treatment. Some sickness give us a chance to seek God, attend retreat, repent, confession, counselling and make a change in our life spiritually. After this spiritual healing, many diseases, even some diseases which medical science have confirmed that are not curable, are cured. You may not believe it, unless it happen before your eyes. But many testimonies reveal that it is true. If you have strong faith your prayers will be answered and Jesus will surely heal you physically and spiritually.

Christ deals first with the spiritual problem—the forgiveness of sins—and then the physical problem—the physical affliction. Most people want it the other way around, putting greater emphasis on healing the physical ailment than fixing the spiritual problem.

Do you see someone in your life that needs to be carried to Christ in prayer because their paralysis is so grave? Pray for them daily and encourage your friends/relatives also to pray for them. Jesus will heal through your prayers.

Do you surround yourself with people who bring you to Christ when you are unable to choose Him for yourself?

If you have faith in prayer and Jesus healing, you may download Prayer Book for the sick . Pray for friends/relatives who are sick. Like the faith of the friends healed the paralytic man, Jesus will heal them through your faithful prayers.

May God bless you all.

Jesus healing miracles – The servant of the Centurion

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant
5 When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him
6 and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.”
7 And he said to him, “I will come and cure him.”
8 The centurion answered, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed.
9 For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and the slave does it.”
10 When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.
11 I tell you, many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
12 while the heirs of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.” And the servant was healed in that hour. (Matthew 8:5-13)

Paralysis is the loss of muscle function in part of your body. If it is critical, the person can’t move or do anything. He become a burden for others also. This centurion’s servant was in critical condition which is clear in his own words to Jesus “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.”

Even though the centurion was an honorable man, he still needed to place his faith in Jesus. He could have ordered Jesus to visit his home, but he was humble. He appealed to Jesus.  Jesus is not as impressed with titles, degrees, and achievements as we are. He is impressed with those who really do humbly believe him. The centurion did not ask Jesus to visit his home, but Jesus understood his problem and replied to him “I will come and cure him.”  This is what we should realise about the love of Jesus. He is ready to hear our humble prayer with strong faith and visit our home any time. Even without asking, he will solve our problems.

This centurion understood the power and authority of spoken commands, and believed that all Jesus had to do was to “speak a word” and the power of the Lord’s word would heal the servant. This showed his faith in Jesus. Jesus was amazed at his faith and impressed and said to the centurion  “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.” And the servant was healed in that hour. He’s the ultimate healer. He heals the servant physically. He heals the centurion spiritually. Jesus heals mind and body. Jesus heals the whole person.

The centurion serves as a tremendous example for all who love God’s Word and seek the healing words of Jesus.

Jesus is sovereign ruler. The Bible says he is king of kings, lord of lords. For some of us,  Jesus is way too small. Many times we have no time to pray, no time to spend with God. But when we are in trouble, sick we seek God. At that time also he forgive our sins, forget our past, listen our prayer, heal us and solve our problems. But after that we forget to thank him, going away from him with worldy entertainment and happiness. Let us change our life, find a few minutes daily from our busy schedule for prayer and thanksgiving to Jesus. Thanksgiving is a must, don’t forget it ever.

If you, your friend/relative is sick you can free download Prayer book for the sick. Like the centurion, your humble prayer with strong faith will be answered. Sometimes prayer will not be answered immediately, don’t be upset, continue praying with more faith. Jesus will surely answer to all prayers.

May Jesus Bless you and your family.

Jesus Healing Miracles – He healed all sick people

Jesus Heals all the sick

Jesus Heals all the sick

Matthew 8:16-17

16 That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and cured all who were sick.

17 This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah, “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.”

In verses 17 The Apostle Matthew confirmed Jesus as the Messiah who provides redemption from sin and physical healing for mankind, fulfilling Isaiah’s prophesy.
The price for your healing was paid at Calvary by Jesus Christ. Your physical healing is part of your redemption from sin and ultimately Satan.

Some people are possessed or influenced by demons. What are the symptoms of demonic influence? How a demon possesses someone?
There is a wide variety of possible symptoms of demon possession, such as a physical impairment that cannot be attributed to an actual physiological problem, a personality change such as depression or aggression, supernatural strength, immodesty, antisocial behavior, and perhaps the ability to share information that one has no natural way of knowing.  These are some of the possible symptoms but it is important not to label every depressed person or epileptic individual as demon-possessed. Apart from physical or emotional distinctions, one can also have spiritual attributes showing demonic influence, such as angry, refusal to forgive, speaking wrong about Jesus, church, priests etc.

While praying for the sick some spiritual leaders can easily recognise the demon and in the name of Jesus they can kick out Satan.

It may be possible that if one allows his heart to be ruled by some habitual sin, it becomes an invitation for a demon to enter. These days the internet is such a medium for some people to invite demon in their life. Some websites, videos, photos, chat all are medium for people to invite Satan in their heart and they are addicted to it. In the above Bible verses Jesus cast out the spirits with a word. Never be afraid of demon, pray with strong faith, read Bible regularly and kick out Satan.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8).

Jesus never changes and still provides healing for all that come to him today.  A believer in Jesus Christ should have full confidence that God will heal the sick as God forgive sins.  A believer can get God’s healing power through his own faith or through the faith of some other believer. Be a good believer and pray to God with strong faith, you will surely realise the healing power of God. Whatever may be your disease, may be rejected case from hospital, but believe that he can do miracles and heal you.  You can download Prayer for the sick. This is a very useful prayer. I pray this prayer daily.

Jesus Healing Miracles – Jesus Cleanses a Leper

Jesus Cleanses the Leper

Jesus Cleanses the Leper

Leprosy was greatly feared by the Israelites, not only because of the physical damage done by the disease, but also because of the strict isolation laws applying to leprosy, making patients feel like feared outcasts of society. Leprosy is a terrible skin disease that cause people’s flesh to scar and decay. People suffering from leprosy often couldn’t feel physical pain, because leprosy destroys the body’s nerve endings. So lepers would frequently damage body parts (like fingers and toes) without realizing it.  Since leprosy was highly contagious, rules for separating lepers from other people were put into place as health safeguards. But the rules were humiliating for the lepers. Lepers were banished from healthy people’s presence to live in communities with other lepers (which were often located in isolated caves). Even today lepers are seperated from families and society and kept in seperate care centres. Families are often split. Lepers suffer both the disease and ostracism from society. Blessed Mother Teresa had done a lot of help to the Lepers in India. She had created a Leprosy Fund and a Leprosy Day to help educate the public about the disease and established a number of mobile leper clinics to provide lepers with medicine and bandages near their homes. Mother Teresa had established a leper colony called Shanti Nagar (“The Place of Peace”) where lepers could live and work. Missionaries of Charity sisters are taking care of the lepers in many places.

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

Matthew 8:1-3

1. When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him;
2 and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.”
3 He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose. Be made clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Jesus reached out and touched a man with leprosy!  This was not allowed then and now Jesus would be unclean…besides this man looked really bad and was sick! Jesus healed the man of his disease but also cleansed him from his sin without becoming infected himself.

Christ performs a miracle in which there can be no doubt that God alone healed him. God’s healing power is most obviously seen when He provides deliverance in a “hopeless” situation. He often works this way with us, allowing trials to become increasingly worse before. He works His will.  Sometimes Satan may bring wrong thoughts against prayer and Jesus in our mind. But at that time we should pray with more faith and devotion and kick out Satan from temptations. Sometimes we feel that Jesus is deaf to our prayers. But as the situation deteriorates, He may simply be letting the situation progress so that we have no doubt about who has come to our aid and whose power solved the crisis. In persevering, we grow spiritually, and He receives greater glory. Many times the sickness and pain may lead us to pray more and grow spiritually.

The message that we should learn from this story is that it doesn’t matter to Jesus what you’ve done, how you look or what other people think about you.  He made you and he loves you. Everyday Jesus is trying to reach out and show His love to you but sometimes we’re too busy to notice or understand his love. Sometimes we forget to thank Jesus for his love and affection.

Pray this prayer

“Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me…. Heal me who is sick.”

If you, your friend or relative is sick, then pray this Prayer for the Sick with strong faith in the greatest physician, Jesus Christ of Nazreth. If you have faith, miracles will surely happen.

Have you ever forgot to  thank and praise him for the healing you received from him?

Have you ever experienced that your sickness and pain helped you to grow spiritually and realise the love of Jesus?
