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.
