Jesus Heals

Matthew 8:5-10, 13, "When Jesus entered Capernaum, a Roman centurion came to Him asking for help. 'LORD, my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering.' Jesus answered, 'I will go and heal him.' The centurion replied, 'LORD, I do not deserve to have you under my roof. Just say the word and he will be healed for I am a man under authority with soldiers under me.' Jesus was astonished and said, 'I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith!'

"Jesus said to the centurion, 'Go! It will be done just as you believed it would!' The centurion's servant was healed that very hour!"

Jesus has made promises to those who believe in Him with their whole heart.

Have you asked for salvation in Christ Jesus? Ask and you will receive!

Jesus Heals Even Today

Matthew 8:1-4, "When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed Him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before Him and said, 'LORD, if You are willing, You can make me clean.' Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. 'I Am willing,' He said, 'Be clean!' Immediately he was cured of his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, 'See that you don't tell anyone. Go show yourself to the priest and offer a gift Moses commanded as a testimony to them.' "

Commentary: Leprosy in those days, like AIDS today, was a terrifying disease because there was no known cure.    Sin is also an incurable disease and we all have it! Only Christ's healing touch can miraculously take away our sins and restore us to real living! Man must realize our inability to cure ourselves of sin. Ask Christ Jesus for His saving power and you will receive!

Is Your House Built Upon the ROCK?

Matthew 7: 21-28, "Not everyone who says to Me, 'LORD, LORD,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'LORD, LORD, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name drive out demons and perform miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Depart from Me you evildoers!' 

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. When the rains came down, the water rose, and the winds blew against his house, it did not fall because it had rock as its foundation.

"But everyone who hears these words of Mine and does NOT put them to practice is like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand. The rain came down, the floods came up, and the wind blew against the house and it fell with a great crash!

"When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at His teaching because He taught with authority."

Do you have your life based on Jesus and His salvation for you? GOD's Word says in Romans 10:9, 

Your life will change and you WILL begins doing works for Him in sharing His Word and living your life for Him!

Are You Producing Good Fruit?

Matthew 7:15-20, "Watch out for false prophets.

"By their fruit you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Likewise every GOOD tree bears GOOD fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

"Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

"Thus, by their fruit you will know them (whether they are of GOD!)"

Knowing Jesus as your Savior and Redeemer, His Spirit guides you to do His will. His will produces "good fruit."  Good works alone with out knowledge of Christ's leading will not produce a heavenly existence. Just "doing good" without the knowledge of Christ's salvation will not "get you to heaven."

James 2:14, "If a man claims to have faith but has no works, what good is it?"

James 2:20, "Faith without works is useless."

James 2:24, "A person is justified by what he does (for Christ Jesus) and not by faith alone."

James 2:26, "As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead."

Matthew 5:16, "Let your light (works) shine before men that they may see your works and praise Father GOD in heaven!"

The Only Way To Eternal Life

Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter through the narrow gate...

"For wide is the gate and broad the road that leads to (eternal) destruction, and many enter through it...

"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to Eternal Life and only a few find it."

Few find it due to not wanting to give up their worldly ways of sin. No one is promised the next day, so those waiting to "do it later" will find it's too late for them! We are not guaranteed the next second in this life! Eternal Life with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD we can't begin to comprehend due to our minds being incomplete in this fallen world. But, those who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior, His Holy Spirit has entered and given us a wisdom the world does not have! Come to Jesus now by simply confessing your sins to Him and asking Him to come into your heart and He will!
