05/01/2017: Miracles of Jesus

Praise the Lord Saints!

Did you know that there are 37 recorded miracles that Jesus performed? The bible tells us that had all of the miracles and healing been recorded the bible would be too immense to carry.

Let’s talk about the cleansing of a leper that is recorded in Matthew 8:2, Mark 1:40 and Luke 5:12. First, lepers were considered ceremonially unclean and were shunned by society. Leprosy in the Old Testament included various skin diseases, and when contracted,  your flesh as well as members rotted away.

This man most likely had true leprosy because his healing caused a great sensation. Jesus, unlike other rabbis, who avoided leper’s expressed His compassion with a physical gesture. Yes, He touched him! The leper, being healed by this touch, emphasized Jesus’ power over all disease. Leprosy was one of the most dreaded diseases of that time yet Jesus exercised His miraculous power over it by a simple touch of compassion.

Saints, draw near to Him and let Him touch you with that same touch of compassion!
