Jesus went in his ministry preaching the gospel, but he more than spoke because he healed the sick. His ministry was to minister to the poor and people who needed his mercy for healing.
Healing in Luke 4 – 5
Luke 4: 34-35 A man with an unclean demon cried: “Let us alone. What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Did you come to destroy us? I know you are the Holy One of God.” Jesus rebuked him saying, “Be quiet and come out of him!” And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him.
Luke 4: 38-39 Simon’s wife’s mother had a high fever, so Jesus stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her and immediately she arose and served them.
Luke 4: 40-41 All people of various diseases were healed. Jesus laid hands on everyone of them and healed them, and demons came out saying: “You are the Christ, the son of God. And Jesus rebuked them, and did not allow them to speak for they knew that he was the Christ.
Luke 5: 12-14 A man who was full of leprosy was healed. And he pulled on his face and implored him saying, “Lord if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Then Jesus put his hand on him and touched him saying, “I am willing be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him. Jesus told him, “Bu go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as a testimony to them, just as Moses commanded.”
Luke 5: 15 A great multitude came to him to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
Luke 5: 18-26 A man paralyzed is let down in the midst of Jesus’s teaching, and the man is healed. Jesus said, “Man your sins are forgiven you. The Pharisees said, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies?” Jesus said, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier to say, your sins are forgiven you or to say Rise up and walk?” But that you may know that the son of man has power on earth to forgive sins – I say to you take up your bed and go to your house. Immediately the man rose, and he departed glorifying god.
If you have not yet received the salvation that is yours through Jesus Christ, I invite you to say a prayer of repentance and ask Jesus to be your savior today.
You are the healer and protector of the nations. No other God is real, except you. You are the God of Gods, and the king of kings. I pronounce your title today in my life. Forgive me for my past mistakes, and I pray that you fill me with the holy spirit to live, be healed and to survive this life into the wonderful next life that you have for me when I die. Come into my heart today, and let me receive all the spiritual benefits of love that you give to your children. I am yours.
In Jesus Name,
