1. Matthew 8 introduces us to the three-fold ministry of the Lord Jesus:
- Ministry of healing
- Ministry of deliverance
- Ministry of salvation
- Jesus is the Healer.
He healed the leper – vs. 2 – And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
The man sick of palsy (vs.6) – And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented;
And Peter’s mother sick of fever (vs. 14) – And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
- Jesus healed by speaking word of God (vs. 8 and 15) –
8The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
Jesus did not heal by asking people to drink holy water, asking them to bath in streams, asking them to sow a financial seed for healing, or asking the sick to rub spiritual cream on the body. He simply spoke the word of God that promises healing and the sick were healed.
- Jesus is the deliverer. He delivered many that were possessed by the devil ( 16) –
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
And (vs. 28) – 28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
- Jesus is the Saviour. He rebuked the stormy wind, and saved his disciples from the drowning ship.
- You need to speak the word to claim your healing, call on Jesus to deliver you from devils; and pray to Him to save you from the stormy winds threatening to drown you.
- My body hear the word of God, be healed in Jesus name
- Devils afflicting my life, I cast you out in Jesus name
- Jesus of Nazareth, save me.
