Mark 10- Cry Out to Jesus

And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. Mark 10:47-49

Here we see a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, heard about Jesus coming through town, so he cried out to The Lord to save him! Even though many people were telling him to Shut Up, Bartimaeus cried out even louder so The Lord could hear him! What great faith this blind man displayed! Notice the title he used for Jesus “Son of David”, its clear Bartimaeus believed Jesus was the Messiah

Are you seeking Jesus like Bartimaeus? Are you crying out to The Lord to save you? Even when all the people around you are telling you to shut up or telling you , you are crazy! Demonstrate your faith in Christ and keep crying out to him even louder!

Jesus heard Bartimaeus and asked him to come to him! The same people who were telling him to shut up are not cheering for him since Jesus answered him. Don’t allow people around you to ruin your relationship with Christ!

And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way. Mark 10:50-52

How did Bartimaeus respond to Jesus calling? He rose and went right to Jesus! Did you answer when The Lord called you? Jesus asks him specifically “What do you want me to do”?  Jesus wants to know your thoughts and feelings, talk to him! Bartimaeus said he wanted his vision, before we come to Christ we are all spiritually blind. When we call out to Jesus and receive him, are eyes are opened by God

Jesus said “Your faith has made you whole” notice the key word whole, Bartimaeus didn’t just receive sight that day, he received salvation from The Lord. It says he received his sight and followed Jesus

Are you calling out to Jesus today? Do you want to be saved? Cry out and receive Christ, your faith will make you whole in Jesus name Amen!

Mark 7-Blind and Deaf

And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. Mark 7:32-35

When we look at the healing of a blind and deaf man, this healing is more than just a physical healing, this healing is a confirmation that Jesus is the Messiah (Christ) As it is prophesied by Isaiah “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped” (Isaiah 35:5)

Jesus was demonstrating that He is the Messiah, Jesus was demonstrating that the New Covenant is a Better and more powerful Covenant! Jesus is demonstrating his Deity, that He is God in the flesh and can not only heal , forgive sin, and has authority over the natural and supernatural. 

And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak. Mark 7:36-37

Jesus asked everyone not to talk about his healing and miracles yet, why? Because the hour has not yet come, for Christ to be glorified (John 12) The hour had not yet come for Jesus to go to the cross and pay the debt for our sins, the hour did not yet come for Christ to be risen , defeating sin and death forever!

However people were so astonished but his power and authority, that his fame spread throughout the regions. Jesus has not yet professed himself to be Christ, why? Because he wanted people to realize it for themselves. He wanted them to witness what he was doing and compare it to the scriptures of Isaiah, Daniel, Psalms, ect and say “Yes Jesus is the Messiah”

But we know, the world hates the light and loves the darkness, and Christ will be crucified because of the sin of the world, because of that loving sacrifice we can become Children of God Amen!

Mark 5- Jairus’s Daughter

And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. Mark 5:22-23

Today we look at another healing Jesus made, a man named Jairus came to Jesus for him to heal his daughter. Who is Jairus? The Bible says he was a “ruler of the synagogue” obviously he had a high standing with the religious leaders at that time, so for him to come to Jesus shows not only great faith but also humility

Notice when it came to life or death for his daughter, Jairus denied his pride, humbled himself and came to Jesus. Don’t wait until your death bed to come to Christ, come to the only one who can save your soul, Jesus Christ now!

Jairus demonstrated his faith in multiple ways here, not only did he seek out Christ but he believed that if Jesus would just lay his hand on his daughter, she would be instantly healed. Jairus was convinced that Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. Mark 5:35-37

Bad news was given to Jairus, that his daughter had already died before Jesus was able to get to her. But when Christ heard this he said “Don’t be afraid just believe” this must have taken great faith to believe this. Notice Jesus told everyone not to follow him except a few disciples, why? Because of the lack of faith by the majority of people, Christ only surrounded himself with those who truly believed

And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. Mark 5:38-40

When Jesus finally reached Jairus home, the girl was already dead. There were people mourning and crying over the loss of the young daughter. However Jesus made the statement “She is not dead, just asleep” What was the reaction of the crowd? The laughed at Christ, they had no faith in Jesus. 

And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. Mark 5:41-42

Jesus commanded “Little girl Rise” and immediately the daughter came back to life, just as when Christ commanded Lazarus “Come Forth” and brought him out of the grave, Jesus holds the keys to life and death!

Remember it was the faith of Jairus in Jesus that allowed this to happen. Jesus not only raised the dead but took a Synagogue leader and made him a disciple Amen!

Mark 5- One Touch of Faith

And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. Mark 5:25-27

 What does true faith look like? What does true faith feel like? How about this woman, who has been suffering for 12 years with a medical condition. She went to see many doctors, but nobody could cure her. One day she heard Jesus was coming through town, and she knew if she could just touch his garment, she would be healed!

This woman had been beaten down, she had every reason to give up, however she had faith in Jesus, she believed he is the Christ, she knew he was the only one who could save her. Do you have this faith in Jesus? Are you reaching out and seeking him?

Just one touch of the Savior and she was cured! It sounds too simple, it sounds impossible. But then you start to realize who Jesus is, the Son of God, the Great I AM, the Good Shepherd who came to bring life to his sheep

For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Mark 5:28-30

She kept saying “If I could just reach the Savior, then i would be healed” this is what we should all be saying daily. If we just keep reaching out to Jesus, you will be saved. Keep focused on Christ and not of this world. There is only one who can set you free!

Notice when she touched his garment, Jesus knew immediately and asked “Who touched me” Jesus hears your prayers, Jesus knows your pain, and Jesus doesn’t just want us to reach for him but to get to know him. A personal Savior from Heaven.

And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. Mark 5:31-33

Even though Jesus was surrounded by people, he searched for the one woman who was seeking him. Don’t think that you’re too insignificant for Christ, remember he left the 99 to find the one lost sheep! 

The woman bowed before The Lord and begged for mercy. She knew who he is , the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, she laid her life at the Savior’s feet

And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. Mark 5:34

Notice Jesus’ response “Daughter, your faith made you well” He addressed her as a child of God, and Christ healed her because of her faith.  Just one touch of the Savior, will save your life, keep seeking Jesus Amen

John 9- Glory of God

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:1-3

As Jesus and his disciples came across a blind man, his disciples asked an interesting question “Who made this man blind, his sin or his parents sin”” The disciples’ understanding was this man was born blind as a curse for his sin or his parents sin. This was a total misunderstanding of God

Jesus made clear, this man’s disability was not caused by anyone’s sin, but so God can be glorified through him. God allowed this man to be disabled, so his power can be revealed. 

We must remember we live in a fallen world because of sin, we can’t expect everything to be rainbows and butterflies, but God can use any circumstance to bring glory and reveal who He is!

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. John 9:4-5

You might say “Well this world is so dark and evil, how could God exist” , Jesus is the Light of the World, to reveal God’s presence and Glory in this dark world. Remember the world is fallen because of the consequences of our sin. The world is fallen because of our own wickedness. 

The fact that we can discern Good vs Evil, proves God does exist. There would be no standard of morality if God didn’t exist. Jesus is The Light in this dark world of evilness. This is why the world rejects Christ, because the world is evil

When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. John 9:6-7

Jesus healed the blind man, why? To reveal the glory of God in this dark world. To reveal that Jesus is The Light of the world. There is no other light except Christ

People are always trying to find the “good” in the world, the only “good” is Jesus Christ! Come to him all you that are weary and burden laden, Jesus will give you rest! Rejection of Christ will leave you in eternal darkness Amen!

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!

Spiritual Leprosy

And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. Luke 17:12-13

Jesus entered a village on his way to Jerusalem and there was ten lepers crying out for Jesus to have mercy on them! These men had the disease of leprosy, this was a highly contagious disease that would deform you. By the Jewish culture these men were considered unclean and were banished from society. They no longer had rights as citizens to employment or property.

In the same way our Sin makes us Spiritual Lepers to God. We become deformed and unclean, we lose our citizenship to the Kingdom of God. Are you crying out to the Master to have mercy and transform you?

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. Luke 17:15-16

Jesus sent the Ten Lepers to show themselves to the priests to show they were redeemed. However only one of them ever gave Glory to God. Isnt this very similar to today? The grace of God which is a gift for all humanity, yet very few every praise God or even acknowledge him.

Notice also the one man who praised God was a Samaritan. Someone who was already considered an outcast because of their birthright is now a child of God because of the mercy of Jesus Christ

And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. Luke 17:17-19

Jesus notices who honors him and who forsakes him, he says I will save the stranger! Meaning whoever repents , receives Jesus as their Master, becomes Born Again into the family of God. As Jesus said, your faith has made you whole! Do you have complete faith in Jesus? He can remove your Spiritual Leprosy and make you Born Again!

Your Faith Will Heal You

He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:38

When you’re in a time of trouble, how do you respond? What do you when you’re in a crisis? Often we waste a lot of time and energy trying to resolve our own issues, when God already has the answer and wants to hear from us. Call out to Jesus and he will save you!

Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:39

There are always going to be people rebuking you, telling you to be quiet or telling you that your wrong. But noticed what the blind man did, when they told him to be quiet he shouted to Jesus even louder. See we can’t allow others to distract or derail our faith, set your sights on Jesus he is your Lord and Savior

“What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” Luke 18:41-42

Jesus answered him and said what do you need from me? Its important that we specifically tell Jesus what is wrong. Remember you can’t have faith without action, and this mans action proved his faith to Jesus and he healed him.

Don’t allow others to lose your faith, Your Faith will Heal 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

 

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
