1-6-16 Believe in Jesus

53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. 54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

Mark 6:53-56 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

While Jesus walked the earth He healed the sick,

And has been healing sickness since that time.

When people heard him ’round they gathered quick;

His name should do that now in our lifetime.

We don’t need scores of healers ‘cross the land

In vast revivals pitching tents in town.

We don’t need mega churches gold and grand,

Announcers telling cripples “Come on down!”

The only thing you need is to believe

That Christ can heal your broken heart and more.

A simple faith in Him will soon achieve

The healing that you need and cry out for.

The Savior hears you calling out His name;

Reach out to Him – you’ll never be the same.

REMEMBER: Believe.

12-12-15 Made Whole

made whole

And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Matthew 14:14 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

As Jesus went He saw the multitude;

Compassion moved within Him like the tide.

He knew the many reasons they pursued,

But they all wanted what He had inside.

With bodies sick and broken, some for years,

They shared a common need, a common goal.

He healed them all and took away their fears.

If you’ve been touched by Jesus you’re made whole.

One healing brought another miracle:

When people saw His power they believed.

He taught them greater things through parable,

And one by one the Kingdom they received.

Christ knows that you need healing; He’s the One,

The Doctor of your soul, the Father’s Son.

8-8-15 Undoing Satan’s Plan

Healing

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 1:32-34 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Before the serpent dared deceive poor Eve

The Garden was a paradise on Earth.

There was no sickness and no cause to grieve;

No sin existed, no defect or dearth.

But after Adam fell and sin moved in,

Disease and devils grew across the land.

Then Jesus came and let His work begin,

Rebuking and undoing Satan’s plan.

Christ showed us all with action what to do,

Now that we are ambassadors of His:

Reclaim the Garden, in His name renew,

Beginning in ourselves the way Christ is.

With Jesus in control, God’s kingdom come;

With love prepare for New Jerusalem.
