A Gift of Knowlege and a Walk on the Water: Mark 6:45-52
After feeding the 5,000 He sent His disciples to sail to the other side of the sea. He went up the mountain to pray.
It is amazing, in the dark, from the mountain He saw the Disciples in the middle of the sea, the storms wind against their forward motion. (He had a Word of Knowledge, the Holy Spirit showed Him something He couldn’t have known).
In the fourth watch, He came walking upon the water, and would have walked by them. This, to me, lets us know how the Lord is always walking beside us, waiting for us to call upon Him, in our time of need.
They feared, called out, and He calmed them and entered into the boat, He calmed the storm. They were amazed. (How could they have forgotten the feeding of the 5,000)?
Hardened hearts, it happens to all of us. We forget what the Lord has done in the past when we have a pressing need now. I don’t understand how our hearts and minds work?
They Brought their sick, they touched Him. Mark 6:53-56
To me, these few verses are some of the most enlightening verses in the New Testament.
- When they landed the people knew Him
- They ran to BRING ALL THEIR SICK
- They laid their sick in the streets in his path
- They begged to touch the border of His garment
- AS MANY WHO TOUCHED HIM WERE HEALED.
If we could get a handle on those last lines, we could change the current world, we all take miracle drugs, and they are. The people in Jesus’ time had none of the great discoveries we have today.
They had something we have lost, FAITH. We no longer bring the sick to Jesus, Why? Most of the time we cannot find Him.
I am sorry but, I don’t believe Jesus has room in our weekly Worship Services, to work. We have our Rituals and Ceremonies, our music leader, and preacher. (No one else need apply).
We need first to learn how to touch God. Next, we must bring people to Him, and teach them to touch Him themselves.
Saints, this kind comes from prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:21; Mark 9:29) We must learn to touch Jesus when we deny ourselves and go to Him when we pray in our prayer language, (1 Cor 14:14, our Spirit speaking to God’s Spirit).
We will see the results of our touch. We will begin to see the signs and wonders that He promised would follow those who believe.
Saints, Love Seek, and Find the Lord, with your heart, mind soul and strength. (Matthew 7:7-8; Mark 12:28-39) We can see His Power and Might as we Walk in and with Him.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.

“And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people. 46. And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. 47. And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 48. And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. 49. But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 50. For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. 51. And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. 52. For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.”
“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.”
