Make Us Clean

And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Mark 1:40

Why did you come to Jesus? This may sound like an odd question, however when people come to Jesus for the wrong reasons, typically they fall away from their faith. However when we come to Jesus , as the Leper, begging for mercy, then we truly come to Jesus for the right reasons.

Lepers during these times were considered sub human and outcasts. Religious leaders would not even allow Lepers to be part of society, they were banished to deserted places left to die. We are these “spiritual Lepers”, we were dead in our sins, left to die. However Jesus Christ had mercy on us, and he is the only one who can make us “Spiritually Clean”

Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Mark 1:41

What was Jesus motive to heal us? He was moved with compassion, even though we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) Jesus loved us before we knew him, he said “I AM Willing”, he was willing to go to the cross for our sins, he was willing to take the wages of our sins upon himself, he was willing to love a spiritual leper when nobody else was

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Come to Christ for mercy and salvation, he is willing to cleanse you from your sins in Jesus Name Amen

Rebuke Evil

Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,saying, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are– the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:23-24

Jesus entered the synagogue (Jewish place of worship) and there was a man possessed with a demons. Make note of this, we don’t usually think of demons being active in holy places such as churches, however as we see, demons are everywhere!

However the demons immediately recognize who Jesus is, “The Holy One of God” and they trembled as they said “Have you come to destroy us?” Even these demons recognizes the power and position of our Lord Jesus Christ, do you understand who Jesus is?

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”  Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. Mark 1:25-26

Jesus had no fear of these demons or their evil and rebuked them immediately. And at his command they were cast out, understand the power that we poses through Jesus Christ. As you walk through the valley of death, we can Fear No Evil (Psalm 23)because we are victorious through Jesus Christ!

Whatever evil Satan and his demons are tormenting you with today, don’t fear them, REBUKE them in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

The Cure

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Acts 3:6

Are you tired of being a beggar? Are you tired of hoping money is going to solve all your problems? Peter came across a man who spent his days begging for money because he couldn’t walk, Peter didn’t give him the temporary solution of money he gave him the permanent cure of Jesus Christ

Today we feel captive by the world, hoping we get our next dollar to get by. But take heart because Jesus has already overcome the world (John 16:33), sickness and death have been defeated at the cross. (2 Timothy 2:10)  We must learn that God is our provider not man (Philippians 4:19) He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35) and will supply you with daily manna to sustain you

Through Christ we are no longer beggars but royalty. We are children of God (Romans 8:15) and we worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16) Before you were born God knew you and set you apart (Jeremiah 1:5) So stop begging and start praising your Heavenly Father and our Messiah Jesus, through amazing grace the chains are gone. The Son shall set you free, and you are free indeed (John 8:29) in Jesus Name Amen

Works of God

And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? John 9:2

Many times in life when something goes wrong or were faced with a struggle, we ask God why? Why would you allow this to happen? Why are you making me go through this? This same scenario was brought up by the disciples.

A man born blind from birth, so the disciples questioned Jesus, why? Why would God allow this to happen? Did the man bring it upon himself?

Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:3

Jesus clearly answered them that the man’s blindness was not his fault. Nor was it his parents or anyone else’s fault. God allowed the man to be blind so the glory of God can be revealed through him. So what does that mean?

First we must remember we live in a broken world, due to our sin we have subjected ourselves to disease and death. Second our purpose of life is to continue to learn and grow in preparation of Gods Kingdom. Since we can’t live in a perfect world, due to our choice of sin, we must learn from our struggles and turn to God.

What struggle or burdens have you been dealing with? Do you blame yourself or God? We need to learn that Satan wants to destroy us, but through Christ we can overcome everything. We can overcome any disease, struggle, addiction, illness, because Jesus has already overcome sin and death.  So cast your troubles to Jesus and allow Gods glory to be displayed through you in Jesus Name AMen

Jesus Still Heals

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak

because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”

Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering Mark 5:27-29

In Mark 5 we learn two examples of Jesus healing power. It all started when a man name Jairus, a synagogue leader seeked Jesus to save his dying daughter.

But along the way another woman showed a great deal of faith by just touching the cloak of Jesus and her daughter was healed. Jesus says to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering ( Mark 5:34) Notice her faith activated Gods healing
He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”)

 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. Mark 5:41-42

Then by the time Jesus was able speak to Jairus his daughter had died. It’s important to first realize Jairus was a synagogue leader. It took him a lot of faith not only to believe in Jesus but to risk losing his position.

And immediately Jesus spoke life into the girl’s body, we must realize not only is there power in the name of Jesus but there is power in the Word of God.

The scriptures we read and speak are messages giving to us directly from God. But you need to have faith to activate the power of God’s word and your prayers.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

If your looking for a miracle or healing today, speak the words of Isaiah 53:5 with faith. By the sacrifice of Jesus, he conquered the grave. If you believe it, then you will receive it in Jesus Name Amen

 

Dogs Under The Table

First let the children (Jews) eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs (Gentiles).” Mark 7:27

A Greek Woman came to find Jesus and heal her daughter, even though she was not a Jew her faith was strong. Jesus tested her faith by saying to her “First let the children (Jews) eat all they want.

See Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, he came to save the Jewish people even though they didn’t recognize him. But as Jesus is about to demonstrate, his grace is for everyone. As he didn’t come to condemn the world but to save it

“Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” Mark 7:28

You would think the woman would have been greatly offended by Jesus statement, especially if he said this today in our “politically correct” world. But the woman showed shockingly strong faith and almost a revelation that the world has accepted Jesus as the Messiah

Notice the humility of the woman saying we are hungry enough for the “Bread of Life” that she’ll eat the crumbs under the table. In a world we live in today where everyone believes they are born privileged and should be treated like royalty, it pleases Jesus to show humility the same way he showed to us as being crucified on the cross

Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” Mark 7:29

That instant her faith activated Gods miracle and healed her daughter. See it’s only by our faith that God can work in us. It doesn’t take any courage or strength to doubt, we can all easily refuse to believe anything and throw pity parties for ourselves. But to take that walk of faith, is a huge step

She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. Mark 7:30

Notice Jesus didn’t even have to touch the child to heal her, the faith of her mother was enough. Another thing to point is this child was being tormented by a demon. We need to come to the realization that we are in a Spiritual Warfare with Satan. If our faith is weak we leave not only ourselves vulnerable but our whole family.

Don’t be to proud to be beg for the crumbs of Jesus, humility is the beginning of understanding. God resists the proud. Know that Jesus came to save you also, cast your cares up The Lord and he will sustain you in Jesus Name Amen

The Lord Your Healer

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. Acts 3:60.

You see a homeless guy on the street, maybe you ignore him, and maybe you throw him a few dollars. But what if you did what Peter did and gave him the gift of Jesus Christ?

Money isn’t going to save this man’s life, its not going to save your life. But Jesus has the power not only to heal but to renew us.

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matthew 9:22

A woman who was sick for 12 years knew that if she could only be touched by Jesus she would be healed. Jesus recognized her faith and healed her instantly.

Could it be your lack of faith is preventing a miracle for you today? After Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven, he left us with the gift of the Holy Spirit.

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:9

There are seven gifts giving to us thru the Holy Spirit, healing is one of them. So even though Jesus is in Heaven right now, we can still be healed here on Earth in his name.

You are not powerless and defeated God is still with us thru the Holy Spirit. But your faith determines your miracles. Is there anything not possible for God?

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

By the stripes of Jesus Christ we are healed, so why are you still acting defeated? Instead of complaining to God about your problems, you need to start professing the victory that Jesus has already won for you, activate your faith in Jesus Name Amen

Dear Heavenly Father,

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ by his stripes we are healed, by our faith we are healed

The same power that rose Jesus from the dead is living inside of us thru your Holy Spirit

Greater is he living inside of me then he that is living in the world

Restore us Lord Heal us Lord Let your will be done

In Jesus Name Amen
