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
