“Jesus Heals in Many Ways”
That is fascinating when you think of it. Benny Hinn in his “Healing Ministry” whacks people on the forehead and has two people standing behind the person being healed to catch them.
I don’t believe Jesus ever healed that way. He did heal by touching, he healed by speaking and various ways. In today’s scripture, He healed another way.
Please read the following verses. Mark 7:31-37
31 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis. 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man. 33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spits and touched the man’s tongue. 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means, “Be opened!”). 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”
The crowd asked Jesus to touch the man. Jesus put his fingers in the man’s ear, then spit and put the spittle on the man’s tongue. Then the man could hear and speak.
Wouldn’t today’s medical world have a hissy fit if any doctor used Jesus’ methods? But they would never be able to dispute Jesus’ results. Whatever method Jesus used in His healing ministry, worked. He had a 100% success rate.
Have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
