The Crowds Follow Jesus

Matthew 12:15-21, "Jesus withdrew from the place. Many followed Him and He healed all their sick warning them to not to tell Who He was. 

"This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet...

'Here is My Servant Whom I have chosen, the One I love, in Whom I delight. I will put My Spirit on Him and...

"He will proclaim justice to the nations.

"He will not quarrel or cry out; no one hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out till He leads justice to victory. In His Name the nations will put their hope!"

We have the victory in Jesus!

Healing on the Sabbath

Matthew 12:9-14, "Jesus went into their synagogue and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, they asked Him, 'Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?' He said to them, 'If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out?'

"How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath. Then He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand.' So he stretched it out...

"(When he did) it was completely restored just as sound as the other (hand).

"But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus."

Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things and is desperately wicked."

Have you given your heart to Jesus for cleansing of your sins? Jesus says,  "I Am the only Way, the Truth, the Light. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

The Sabbath

Matthew 12:1-8, "Jesus went through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick heads of grain and eat them. 

"The Pharisees saw and said, 'Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath!' Jesus answered, 'Have you not read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of GOD, and ate the consecrated bread - which was not lawful for them to do but only the priests.

"Have you read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests desecrate the day and yet are innocent? I tell you that One greater than the temple is here (Jesus). If you had known what these words mean, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice' you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man IS the LORD of the Sabbath.' "

Jesus Promises Rest for Your Soul

Matthew 11:20-30, "Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles had been performed because they did not repent...'I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you!'

"At that time Jesus said, 'I praise You, Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. This was Your good pleasure. All things have been committed to Me by My Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son AND those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.
