Notes & Transcripts

Christ is willing to heal us. He was willing to suffer a terrible beating so we could be healed.

  • Matt 8:1-3, v.5-17 Christ hasn't changed - He is still willing to heal us (Heb 13:8)
  • Jesus Christ suffered an incredible beating that we could be healed (Isa 53:1-5) (stripes = blows that cut in).

Matthew 27

Note to self: Since my Lord and Savior submitted Himself to such a horrendous beating so I could be healed, and I am now His property, how is it that I find the audacity to eat garbage food and sit around on my butt and not get any exercise?

Gotta Stop!!!

  • Forgiveness and healing are tied together (Matt 9:1-8) See Expositor's Bible Commentary

Key: Christ's sacrifice was 2 part! 1. The scourging & 2. the cross.

v.18-25 God works through human instruments.

v.27-29 Jesus made it clear that healing was in great part "according to our faith".

God can heal anything - nothing is too hard for God: Gen 18:14; Jer 32:17, 27

Jesus Commanded: Matt 10:1, 7-8

1. Preach the gospel

2. Heal the sick

3. Cast out demons

  • See the difference between those mentioned in Mark 6:3-5 and those mentioned in Mark 6:12-13

We must build and atmosphere of faith! 1 Cor 11:28-32

We need these accompanying signs! Mark 16:14-20

Seek God and beseech Him that He will bless us with these gifts - the end is nigh at hand!
