#12 Chapter 4:38-44 Jesus HEALS THEM ALL!!

Read Chapter 4:38-44...then come back

I love the scriptures that bring attention to the fact that Jesus healed them ALL! Not just some of them, not just a few of them but.....ALL OF THEM! Every single time without fail!

To many times we forget that Jesus not only came to take away our sins, but also came to take away our sicknesses, diseases and infirmities too. Everywhere Jesus went people were made whole; spiritually, mentally and physically.

"...Simon’s (Peters') wife’s mother was sick with a high fever, and they made request of Him concerning her. So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and served them."

"...when the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them. And demons also came out of many..."

Throughout scriptures Jesus proves His divinity by healing every kind of sickness, disease and infirmity including casting out demons.

The word "salvation" translated from the word "Sozo" in the Greek means to be made whole. So the real meaning of salvation is to be made whole; spirit, soul and body.

Isaiah 53:4-5 puts it perfectly "Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions [sin], He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities [sin]; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.[spirit, soul and body]" Amplified version

What did this story mean to you?
