Expectation of Christ

 

And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. Luke 18:38

A blind beggar heard Jesus was coming through town, he believed that Jesus could heal him. Think about this mans faith, he is blind and vulnerable. He doesn’t know what Jesus looks like , he just knows Jesus is Lord of ALL

Notice this mans approach to Jesus, he says “Jesus, Have mercy on Me!” He doesn’t say Jesus give me money, Jesus give me health, or Jesus make me happy. He says to Jesus have mercy on a wretched pitiful sinner. This is true repentance, he understands his lowly state and asks the Christ to redeem him!

Are we approaching Jesus with this humility, with this passion, with this expectation that Jesus is truly God

And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. Luke 18:39

The crowd rebuked the blind man, they told him to shut up you fool. However the blind man just screamed and cried out for the Lord Jesus even more! He cried with so much repentance and humility that even the Heavens heard him! Lord Jesus Have Mercy on Me!

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. Luke 18:42

Jesus answered the man, Receive your healing Your faith has saved You! The original Greek word for Faith is “Pistis” meaning Expectation, Confidence, Belief. This man didn’t have wishful thinking he expected the Lord Jesus to heal him because he is the Lord of Lords!

True faith is an expectation, not a wish! Cry out to the Lord Jesus with an expectation of deliverance Amen!

Make You Well

When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10:47

Who does Jesus have mercy on? Everyone who calls upon the name of The Lord! Here is a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the world has left him for dead. He was discarded like a piece of trash on the side of the street, left to fend for himself. Yet he heard the Savior was coming through town!

And when Bartimaeus heard Jesus was coming through town, he cried out for him. And everyone around him kept telling him to shut up, but that prompted Bartimaeus to cry out even louder! Are you crying out to Jesus?

And answering him, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!” Mark 10:51

And Jesus answered Bartimaeus cries and replied “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus wants to know from you, what do you want him to change in your life? Are you just saying meaningless prayers or are you having heartfelt conversations with The Lord?

And Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road. Mark 10:52

Notice what Jesus says here, “Your faith has made you well”, see without faith we cant do anything, God cant work in our lives without faith. We need to be “ALL IN”, Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for deliverance and he will make you Well (Spiritually) meaning Eternal Life Amen!

One Touch

For she thought, “If I just touch His garments, I will get well.” Mark 5:28

Heres a woman who has been suffering for over 12 years with a physical illness, she tried seeing doctors but they never found her cure. Today she is going to meet the Great Physician who is the permanent Cure.

She knew if she could only touch Jesus , she would be healed. What made her believe this? She had faith in Jesus, she knew he is the Messiah (Christ) he is the Son of God. Do you have this faith? Are you trying to reach Jesus?

Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction. Mark 5:29

Immediately when she touched Jesus, she was healed. It wasn’t next week or next year, it was immediately. Jesus Christ can set you free today also, he can restore your soul. When he said “It Is Finished” on the cross, his work was completed. Jesus is the Great Physician who can heal you spiritually and physically today!

And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:34

Notice what Jesus says to her “Your faith has made you Well” Her faith in Jesus Christ is what healed her! Notice her faith, she was seeking Jesus, she believed he is the Son of God, and she demonstrated her faith by action.

Jesus acknowledged her faith and it healed her. Are you in need of a Physician spiritually or physically? Seek the Great Physician, believe that Jesus is Lord, believe that he has the keys to life and death, he will make you well Amen!

The Great Physician

And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17

The Pharisees seen Jesus eating with sinners and rebuked him! Now lets stop to think about this for a minute, who is a Sinner? We are all Sinners (Romans 3:23, Romans 3:9, Ecclesiastes 7:20) So if Jesus was to follow the Pharisees logic then he wouldn’t bother talking to anyone including the Pharisees.

Jesus here is making a statement that deals with the physical and spiritual realms. First hes talking about the sick who need a physical healing and then hes talking about sinners who need a spiritual rebirth (become saved)

See Jesus didn’t come to give us a temporary fix, he came to give us the permanent cure which is eternal life through him. Even if Christ were to fully restore our health, if we are not saved, then we are still condemned to eternal death due to the wages of our sins.

The Pharisees thought by doing religious works they could earn salvation, but Jesus called them “Whitewashed Tombs” why? Because on the outside they looked good but internally they were evil and corrupt. The love of God was not in them, only self righteousness

Jesus is the only way to get the permanent cure. The price he paid on the cross has given us eternal life. Repent and Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ , The Great Physician Amen!
