To touch Him, to touch the heart of God. (That is my desire). That is the place of Power, the place of answered prayer.
That is when we begin; To see, to know, to consider and to understand, that the Lord is alive,” that it is He, that is God, that it is He, who is the Creator and Ruler of all. (Isaiah 41:20)
That God, the Lord, our Lord, is not dead.
The Gospel, is not just meaningless childrens stories, or fables, not empty promises, repeated over and over, just stories, not to be taken seriously.
Whether it’s a great fish, (able to swallow a man), a talking donkey, or a talking snake, (who would lead us astray). (All true…).
Samsons, superhuman strength, or the impossible translation, of Phillip, from here to there.
It all, happened, just as the book says.
The Power and Promise of Salvation, of Healing, of our not suffering want, of our not being in need, of our God, supplying all our needs, according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
The promise that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask, think or even imagine.
All this is true, and all real. All is possible. All is available. To any and all who learn to Touch Him.
That lack of knowledge, (of how to touch Him), is the reason His Church is Powerless and dieing.
As Jesus walked among man, He would choose, who He would touch, heal and make whole.
The lame man at the pool of Bethesda, or the man blind from birth, out of all those in need, he chose these two, the 7,000 he taught, healed, told the disciples to feed, because they had been with Him three days, with nothing to eat. ALL HIS CHOICE.
Why, did he just choose a few to make whole, when it seems there were multitudes?
We have no clue, other than to teach those with Him, about sin and God’s love and grace. He chose who He would touch.
In the time of Moses, the people said, “You talk to the Lord, and tell us what He wants.”
In the New Testament we are told “to come boldly to the throne of Grace, to find Mercy and Grace in your time of need.”
It is a different time now, The Lord wants us to come to Him ourselves. Jesus is now the intermediary, between God and man.
As we read the Word, we find in Mark: as people learned of Him, (Jesus), their behavior changed.
The woman with the issue of blood, pressed through the crowd, touched the hem of His garment and was instantly healed.
Jesus told her, that her faith had made her whole. (Mark 5).
In Mark 6, we find Him going to His home town, they were amazed at His mighty works. While He said, He could do no mighty works, just heal a few sick.
Because of their unbelief. Later:
Mark 6:53-56 (KJV)
“And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.
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.”
“As many as touched him were made whole.”
The people from His home town were Amazed, and He could only heal a few sick folks, because of their unbelief.
He chooses, who He heels. His choice, His decision His will.
Unless those in need learn to touch Him.
“As many as touched him where made whole.”
Saints we need learn to touch Him.
Are we in need? Do we truly believe?
Look for next post… let us learn how to touch Him, instead of waiting for Him. If we can learn to touch Him, He meets our needs
