READ: Luke 11:14-23
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
At the beginning of Jesus’ ministry , He announced that, the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him to heal the broken-hearted. This proved that He was a healing Jesus: Luke 4:18-19.
Jesus did not only preach and teach. Healing was a major part of His activities here on earth.
…and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
The preaching of the kingdom of God must always be accompanied by healing. Healing is the evidence that a new kingdom has come. When people asked Jesus about the kingdom, He said that healing was the evidence that God’s kingdom had come (Luke11:10).
The Bible says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday , today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Being the same comes from doing the same things repeatedly. If Jesus is the same today , then He cares for women with gynaecological problems today as He cared for them then. If He was sorry about people dying before their time and was moved with compassion to raise a woman’s son from the dead, He still has that compassion for such situations today . Today , He is still moved with compassion to raise up every dead thing in your life. God still brings you healing through the preaching and teaching of His Word.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
