ART:  It’s okay. It’s okay. So this is good. This is a good thing. Now Jesus could not heal anyone. That’s what He said. The Son could do nothing by Himself. And that’s also why He could say the works I do you will do also plus greater works. All right? Now additionally Jesus consistently healed everyone who came to Him. And I’m going to read to you nine different scriptures that in my experience this has awakened people to the truth of God’s will to heal. It’s something that it’s always been in our Bibles but for some reason we don’t catch it and when don’t catch it we don’t believe it. But I’m going to read them to you in a row and it’s going to be hard not to catch it. Is that fair? All right. Matthew 4:24: News about Him spread all over Syria. Pause there. Syria’s a big place, right? Okay. News about Him spread all over Syria and people brought to Him all who were ill with various diseases. Those suffering severe pain, the demon possessed, those having seizures and the paralyzed and He healed them. Matthew 8:16: When evening came many who were demon possessed were brought to him and He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. Matthew 9:35: Jesus went through all the towns and villages teaching in their synagogues. Preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing EVERY disease and sickness. Matthew 12:15: Aware of this Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed Him and He healed all their sick. Are you noticing a pattern here? Yeah. All the sick. All the sick. Matthew 14: 35 to 36: And when the men of that place recognized Jesus they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to Him and begged Him to let the sick just touch the edge of His cloak and all who touched Him were healed. Mark 6:56: And wherever He went into villages, towns or countryside they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged Him to let them touch even the edge of His cloak and all who touched Him were healed. Luke 4:40: When the sun was setting the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness and laying His hands on each one He healed them. Luke 16, I’m sorry, Luke 6, verse 18b through19: This is my favorite one. Cause it’s just ridiculous. Are you ready? Those troubled by evil spirits were cured and the people all tried to touch Him because power was coming from Him and healing them all. I love that. I love that. And then Acts 10:38 says: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power and how He went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil because God was with Him. Now this is an important verse because we know from John 1:1: “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Verse 14 says “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Right? So Jesus was God. He was with God. He was there in the beginning. We know from the Book of Colossians that He was there at creation. “Nothing was made that has been made without Him.” That’s from John 1:3. So we know that Jesus is God. But Acts 10:38 says “God,” meaning the Father, “anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power.” All the miracles Jesus did were not performed by the second person of the Trinity, Father, Son, Holy Spirit but by the third person, the Holy Spirit. In fact it says “He went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil because God was with Him.” If Jesus did all those miracles because He’s God we’re exempt. If He did all those miracles because God was with Him… is God with you?


AUDIENCE:  Yes!  Amen.


ART:  I mean what does the name “Emmanuel” mean?


AUDIENCE:  God with us.


ART:   God with us. Amen. Wow. So He’s with you. This agrees 100% with the nature of God, the life and ministry of Jesus, the fullness of the Bible and here’s one of my favorites here to make this just a little bit brighter for you. It wasn’t only Jesus. In Acts chapter 5, verses 12, or verse 12 first, it says that the believers, the Church, was all meeting together in a place called Solomon’s Colonnade and in verse 16 it says that the people… “Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits and all of them were healed.” Jesus had ascended into heaven. He was gone. And now this was the Church ministering in Jesus’ name. Everybody healed. Now some of these objections we have one of my favorites is John chapter 5, the Pool of Bethesda. All right? There was this angel who would come down and trouble the waters. And when that happened, the New King James version says that whoever got in the pool first was healed of whatever condition they had. Now there’s a few things important about that. Because Number One, God would not give more authority to an angel than He would give to His son. So if that angel is authorized to heal whoever of whatever you’d better believe Jesus can heal whoever of whatever. He wasn’t just led to some people and not to others. But that’s what some people bring up as an argument about this passage because it says here a number of sick, diseased and injured people used to lie. And Jesus shows up on the scene. He sees this man who’s been crippled for I think it was 38 years and He has compassion on him when He finds out how long he’s been in this condition. And He goes up to him and asks him do you want to be made well? Of course I do. Lays hands on him. Get up. Take your mat. I don’t remember what He did but He told him to get up. The guy gets up and he’s healed.     Jesus slips away into the crowd. Now this guy is walking through the Temple courts carrying His mat and the people that are there, the religious folk look at him and they say what are you doing on the Sabbath carrying a mat?
