“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” Matthew 14:14
Jesus didn’t hide the hard cases for healing behind a stage as big time faith healers often do today. Jesus healed every single person who came to him. Peter, John, and Phillip also healed all who came to them. Can you imagine the scenes of thousands being healed not to mention when some were even raised from the dead. There were multitudes of people weeping and shouting for joy.
“ … Many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was great joy in that city.” Acts 8:7-8
Just imagine if all the sick people in North Idaho were healed instantly, there would a pandemonium of joy like never before.
Yet the only reason for the healings and raising of the dead in the New Testament were all done to point to Jesus as Messiah and Savior who came to heal us all of our terminal illness of sin. For what good is it to be healed physically yet die without Jesus forgiveness and spend eternity in hell? That’s why healings were always centered around the gospel of Christ.
If you have believed in Jesus as savior and repented of your sins you have experienced the greatest of healings, the healing of the curse of sin. By Jesus stripes — Isaiah 53:5 (torture and crucifixion) your sins are paid for and you are now forgiven and on your way to heaven.
You should be weeping and shouting for joy often over that reality in your life! If you are not a believer turn to Jesus now and be healed of your burden of sin and you can weep and shout for joy because of your salvation and spiritual healing
