Men called Him Master/Teacher
The Life of Jesus. A "human reasoning free" synopsis of the life/purpose of Jesus and your part in it.
7 And John preached, saying, "There comes One after me who is mightier than i, whose sandal strap i am not worthy to stoop down and loose. 8 "I indeed baptized you with water, but He (Jesus) will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.
11 Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
22 And they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
23 Now there was a man in their church with an unclean spirit. And the unclean spirit cried out, 24 saying, "Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are——the Holy One of God!"
25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!".
26 And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? What NEW doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him."
30 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once.
31 So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.
32 At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door.
34 Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
39 And He was preaching in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons.
40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."
41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed." (This shows that Jesus/God is love, has compassion, is willing and able to heal) 42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.
3 Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men.
4 And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven you."
6 And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts,
7 "Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?"
8 But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, "Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?
9 "Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? (Jesus calls forgiving sins and healing ‘easy’, so be encouraged to be redeemed and healed.),
10 "But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins" ——He said to the paralytic, 11 "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house."
12 Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"
13 Then He went out again by the sea; and all the multitude came to Him, and He taught them.
3 And in the church He said to the man who had the withered hand, "Step forward."
4 Then He said to them, "Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they kept silent.
5 And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. (A calling to review our acts as well as our traditions. Let our hearts be meak.) 6 Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
10 For He healed many, so that as many as had afflictions pressed about Him to touch Him.
11 And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, "You are the Son of God." (As many as. Meaning: All)
14 Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, 15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons. (Later Jesus delegated this divine life to the 72 disciples and to every believer (marc 16: 17-18).)
1 And again He began to teach (Faith comes by hearing/reading the word of God taught by Holy Spirit...)
36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. (Jesus commands things to be) 40 But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!" (Discern here that Jesus is God, having power over all)
2 And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, 4 because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones. 6 When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. 7 And he cried out with a loud voice and said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me." 8 For Jesus said to him, "Come out of the man, unclean spirit!" 9 Then He asked him, "What is your name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion; for we are many."
10 Also he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country (out of the body). 11 Now a large herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains.
12 So all the demons begged Him, saying, "Send us to the swine, that we may enter them."
13 And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea.
And his disciples presented to Him a born blind saying: “Who sinned? He, his parents or grandparents that this affliction is on him?” Jesus said: “Not so, but that the kingdom of God may be revealed in him”. Instantly received his sight.
Jesus is not here to condemn us but to heal and restore us back to original created value. Though sin (being cast out of Gods Spirit and blessings) is biblical seen, clearly the cause of sicknesses, Jesus has a higher message. That of mercy, grace, peace and power.
22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet 23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live."
35 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?"
36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
37 And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly because of the death of the little girl. 39 When He came in, He said to them, "Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping."
40 And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside (don't let criticisers influence when you perform healings / prayers of faith), He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. 41 Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, "Talitha, cumi," which is translated, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." (learn from His way of praying. He commands things to be) 42 Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.
25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.
28 For she said, "If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, "Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!
3 "Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?" And they were offended at Him.
4 But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is honoured, except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house." 5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them (despite criticism, Jesus still performed “some” miracles, probably not all people were hardened with criticism). 6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
38 On another occasion He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see." And when they found out they said, "Five, and two fish." 39 Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties.
41 And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all. 42 So they all ate and were filled. 43 And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish. 44 Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.
49 And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out;
50 for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."
51 Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled.
54 And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.
56 Wherever He entered into villages, cities, or in the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well (“As many as”’, means all. A true ministry of love, grace and power.)
8 "For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men——the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do." 9 He said to them, "All too well you reject the teachings of God, that you may keep your tradition. You’ve made the word of God powerless by your religious traditions, not knowing God nor His Power” (Again a calling to honestly review our acts as well as our traditions).
25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs." 28 And she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs."
29 Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed. (This is a teaching especially for Jews. Jews were convinced that the Messiah only came for the Jews. Jesus shows that he is there for everybody. Full of love, compassion and healing power).
32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.
34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, "Ephatha," that is, "Be opened." (Jesus commands the good to be!) 35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."
1 In those days, the multitude being very great and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said to them, 2 "I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat.
3 "And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from afar." 4 Then His disciples answered Him, "How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?"
5 He asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."
6 So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude. 7 They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them. 8 So they ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets of leftover fragments. 9 Now those who had eaten were about four thousand. (Compare this with the “many” and “multitudes” that pressed on to Jesus to receive healing. He healed thousands each day. Remember, He is the same. Back then, today and in eternity and He calls you one with Him: Gen 1:27 vs John 17:22)
22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him. 23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
24 And he looked up and said, "I see men like trees, walking." 25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.
John 5 One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” 7 “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” 8 Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” 9 At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.
The day on which this took place was a Sabbath, 10 and so the Jewish leaders said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.” 11 But he replied, “The man who made me well said to me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’ ”12 So they asked him, “Who is this man who told you to pick it up and walk?”
13 The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there. (This is a very crucial teaching. The man that was paralytic had no idea who Jesus was. Still full of grace Jesus healed the man. Now Jesus says: “He who encounters you, encounters Me; heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, freely you have received, give freely, you and I are one”. That is what being Born Again means. A new creation, one with God. God in you. Joined into the kingdom of the most High, all things are possible. Only through the blood of Christ)
9 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ." 31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
2 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured* before them.
3 His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them. 4 And Elijah appeared* to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
7 And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice* came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!" (*All things are possible.)
9 Now as they came down from the mountain, He commanded them that they should tell no one the things they had seen, till the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
10 So they kept this word to themselves, questioning what the rising from the dead meant (After three years of being with God Himself they still didn’t understand).
24 The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” 33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods” ? 35 If He called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside—36 what about the One whom the Father set apart as His very own and sent into the world (Jesus)? Why then do you accuse Me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 37 Do not believe Me unless I do the works of my Father. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.
40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true.” 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.
The Death of Lazarus
11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”
4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7 and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”
12 His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep. 14 So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, 15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.” (Jesus has a complete different / divine mind-set then men. Jesus lets Lazarus die, so He could raise him up and people would believe in Him and the Father would be glorified)
16 Then Thomase said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.” (A strange, not godly inspired remark)
17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18 Now Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” 28 After she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. “The Teacher is here,” she said, “and is asking for you.” 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. 31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there. 32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”
33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked.
“Come and see, Lord,” they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not He who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odour, for he has been there four days.” (Lazarus body may be described like this: The bloat stage provides the first clear visual sign that microbial proliferation is underway. In this stage, anaerobic metabolism takes place, leading to the accumulation of gases, such as hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide, and methane. The accumulation of gases within the bodily cavity causes the distention of the abdomen and gives a cadaver its overall bloated appearance. The gases produced also cause natural liquids and liquefying tissues to become frothy. As the pressure of the gases within the body increases, fluids are forced to escape from natural orifices, such as the nose, mouth, and anus, and enter the surrounding environment. The buildup of pressure combined with the loss of integrity of the skin may also cause the body to rupture.
Intestinal anaerobic bacteria transform haemoglobin into sulfhemoglobin and other colored pigments. The associated gases which accumulate within the body at this time aid in the transport of sulfhemoglobin throughout the body via the circulatory and lymphatic systems, giving the body an overall marbled appearance.
If insects have access, maggots hatch and begin to feed on the body's tissues. Maggot activity, typically confined to natural orifices and masses under the skin, causes the skin to slip and hair to detach from the skin. Maggot feeding, and the accumulation of gases within the body, eventually leads to post-mortem skin ruptures which will then further allow purging of gases and fluids into the surrounding environment. Ruptures in the skin allow oxygen to re-enter the body and provide more surface area for the development of fly larvae and the activity of aerobic microorganisms. The purging of gases and fluids results in the strong distinctive odours associated with decay.
40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
7 Then one of the crowd answered and said, "Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit”. 18 "And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not." 19 He answered him and said, "O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me."
20 Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth. 21 So He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood.
22 "And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can (Can? Can implies not knowing the power of God) do anything, have compassion on us and help us."
23 Jesus said to him, "If I can? All things are possible to him who believes." 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief! (Now his heart is in the right position, the man no longer insults Jesus with his unbelieve)
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!" (Learn how to pray as the Master gives the example: commanding things to be)
26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, "He is dead." 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, "Why could we not cast it out?"
29 So He said to them, "This gender (meaning his disciples) can come out (walk as they should) by nothing but prayer and fasting." (Jesus rebukes their lack of insight. This does not mean that we have to fast or multiply our praying. It implies that we have to have certainty in He who has all power and just believe Him when He says ‘You shall receive power when the holy spirit comes’,'the glory i have in my Father i have given to you', etc, etc, and you are My born again sons and daughters. Understanding that you already are in Him brings healing, not your best effort)
27 But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible."
46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, "Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you." 50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.
51 So Jesus answered and said to him, "What do you want Me to do for you?" (Read that again. “What do you want Me to do for you?”. “Lord”; also means “I’m there for you”). The blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight." 52 Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.
Luke 6:17 a great multitude (4000-5000 souls) who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, 18 and as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were all healed. 19 and the Multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from him and healed them all.
Luke 9:11 he received the multitude and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.
Of Jesus of Nazareth how he went about, healing all that were dominated. Openly displaying the powers of hell. (Obviously satan or evil spirits are not devilish looking goats standing upright, as they are often presented. They are invisible spirits able to tormentate or inflict people with diseases. Note that by His ministry of healing the sick and casting out demons Jesus openly displayed the true cause of afflictions. Mankind is under influence of sickening spirits through the fall. Jesus did not want to leave us empty handed in hands of the opponent. That’s why he gave us power over the complete dominions of the fallen spirits)
Mat 28.18 And Jesus stepped forward saying: “All power in Heaven and earth has been given unto me”.
Luke 10:19 See, I have given you power to trample on snakes and scorpions and the complete dominions of the enemy; and nothing will be able to harm you.
7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. “Whatever city you enter, heal the sick, raise the dead and tell them the Kingdom of God has come near” (in accordance with marc 16:17-18 and numerous events in Acts, this message still stands for believers this day) 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them. (In the OT, temple-items and priests/prophets/kings were anointed with oil to point out that they were God’s property. Hence a with oil anointed afflicted/possessed person can no longer be dominated, because He or She is Gods property. Thus healing will take place)
7 "But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. 8 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. 9 "But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues” (be careful attending church ;-)).
25 Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which is translated, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" (Bearing the sin of mankind, the Holy Spirit of God could no longer dwell in Jesus. Jesus got split from the father, buying you and me a place to be Holy Spirit filled)
37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice “it is accomplished”, and breathed His last. (Only by his blood/death Jesus could bring the perfect sacrifice to God / Himself and break the curse of sin and death. Three days later he proved who he was, by being raised from the death and thereby conquering men’s greatest enemy. Therefore is the saying “he who believes in Him shall not perish”. Jesus has/is life. Why the blood? In the Old Testament we see reminiscing of sin by the blood of innocent animals. The soul is in the blood. The Divine soul/blood of Christ conceived by the Holy Spirit was completely clean of sin and thus the perfect sacrifice for God to Himself. Jesus/God did this on our behalf. Buying us a way to divine life and being Holy spirit filled. This is a divine teaching. Madness for men, but divine for God. Now who is right? Men or God? Because he is all-wise and all-powerful, the Maker of all, you may bet He’s right and men are alienated from their true origin through the fall)
38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom (In the OT, behind the veil (a multiple layered 15 cm thick cloth) was the dwelling place of God. So the veil being torn supernatural by God is an image of a free way, straight to the throne of the Most High. God saying: “Now the way to Me is free”. That’s why it is said: ’The only way to the Father is through (the blood) of Jesus. If in the OT a non-ordained person entered the Holy of Holiest he would drop dead, because no one can survive the presence of God. Even Moses (God called him “His friend”) was not able to survive the full glory of God. That’s why God placed Moses in a cavern and put His hand before the cavern when He passed by. Moses glanced so heavily after this encounter that he had to cover his face for no one could stand the light that radiated from his face. Thanks to the blood of Christ we now may boldly enter into this awesome wonderworking God. That is why we have greater glory. This shows how incredible precious the blood of Christ really is. We can freely enter into the great “I am”. Justified by the blood, we are born from God. Since Jesus/God our father has power over all. We as his children have likewise. Like father, like children. Begotten of the spirit. That is what bornagain means.)
39 So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, "Truly this Man was the Son of God!"
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
6 But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him”.
1 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
14 Later Jesus appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved”. (Baptism is an image of acknowledging you were born in the fall and have seen the resolution of divine life as presented by Christ. That you no longer see the things of this world as “all promising” but rather want to be in the Spirit of life. You are “In the grave” for this world and coming out of the grave living as a new Holy Spirit filled Creation of God. It means you are free from the fall and its effects. You will be looking moore and more like Jesus. And if you stumble you run to God for change, as Jesus being our High Priest).
Marc 16: 17 "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name* they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 "they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." (This again shows the will of God: be baptized in water and Spirit and learn to walk like Him)
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.
(* commanding things to be in “Jesus mighty name”. Jesus represents mankind. Life as it was intended to be. What He went through.... we went through. So.... we are already made holy, blameless and above reproach, transfered into His Kingdom and complete/co-seated IN Him. That provides miracles, because the Omnipotent power of the Most high God works in/through you. Great bliss. Besides, the spoken word of a through water and Spirit born-again person means, that every unclean spirit, sickness or situation must obey to the commands spoken in Jesus all-mighty name. A born-again believer is a god in the flesh. One with God)
31 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away”. (Jesus/God/the spirit of life is unchangeable. What He says, lasts forever.)
11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, or else believe Me for the sake of the wonderworks themselves”. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you”.17 “the Spirit of truth you will know, for he dwells with you and will be in you. The spirit of truth will comfort you and lead in the truth”.
John 13:20 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whom I send, receives Me. He who receives Me, receives Him who send Me”.
In other words: As soon as someone takes the blood of Jesus for what it is, the spirit of God and the spirit of that persons fuse together to one spirit. So if someone encounters you, he encounters God in the flesh, because de spirit of God is in you. Giving eternal life and the 9 supernatural gifts of the holy spirit. Again, the way to the father is free. Also note that those who receive you, receive Jesus and God. Knowing Jesus gives us power to heal the sick, cast out demons, all things are free and possible.
John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father. 13 And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, that the father may be glorified in the Son. 14 I you ask anything in my name, I will do it!” (He, who has all power and loves us, says: Ask in my name and you will receive)
Though you are bad, you are able to give good to your children. How much more shall The Father who is good, give the holy spirit to them that ask Him.
8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you” For is it not written in the law “you are gods”?; “heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give” (a beautifull free gift from a loving, wonderworking God!)
2 peter 1:4 Jesus has been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (We are gods i.e. partakers in His Divine nature, that is what Jesus came to bring us and what brought the Father pleasure to give us).
20 “You will say to this mountain (problems/demons/sicknesses) “Move from there to there” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you” (Believers can command things to be in Jesus Mighty Name. All power in Heaven and on earth is packed behind the name above all names. So we have two options: Command things to be, or ask Jesus to act. Note that we do not command Jesus to act. But Jesus, giving us power over sicknesses, situations and demonic forces, enforced us to command sicknesses, demonic oppression, etc to leave).
As we read in Acts. Sometimes apostles ask Jesus to ‘stretch out His hand’, elsewhere we read that they command to a dead girl: ‘arise’. They knew they were ‘Sons of the Living God’.
The life of Jesus effects the lifes of His friends: Acts
2:38 Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ under the remission of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (“repent” means: turn around, see who Jesus/God/the spirit of life is, see your own origin and destiny mirrored in Him, acknowledge Him, get born again and start a divine, holy spirit filled life, life as it was intended to be from the beginning)
2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders en signs were done through the apostels.
4:30 that we may speak Your word with boldness; while You stretch out Your hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.
4:33 And with great power the apostles (friends of Jesus) give their witness of the resurrection of the Lord and great grace was upon them all.
5:12 And by the hands of the Apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people,
5:15-16 insomuch that they even carried out the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds an couches, that as Peter came by, at least the shadow might overshadow some of them. And there also came together the multitudes from the cities, round about Jerusalem, bringing the sick and them that were vexed with unclean spirit and they healed everyone.
6:8 And Stephen, full of grace and power, worked great signs and wonders among the people. And they were not able to withstand the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.
7:51 You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you resist the holy spirit always, as your fathers did (Again a call to lay aside the teaching / wisdom of men and be open to what God says through Jesus Christ).
8:6 And the multitudes gave heed with one accord unto the things spoken by Philip, when they heard and saw the signs which he did. For from many that had unclean spirits, they came out, crying with a loud voice; and many that were sick and that were lame were healed.
Teaching should always point to Christ in you. Guiding other people in to their origin and destiny. Life as it was intended to be and we see on display in Christ.
8:17 Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
9:33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had kept his bed for 8 years for he was lame. And Peter said unto him: “Aeneas Jesus Christ healeth thee; arise and make your bed. And straight away he arose”.
9:37 And it came to pass that Dorcas felt sick, and died. Peter put forth all the weepers and kneeled down, turned to the body and said: “Tabitha, arise”. And she opened her eyes and sat up and Peter presented her alive.
19:11 and God worked special miracles by the hands of Paul. Insomuch that even Pauls handkerchiefs or aprons made evil spirits went out. (Paul was converted on his way to Damascus ordained to prosecute and put to death believers in “the way”. After his miraculous conversion he stayed several years in tranquillity, contemplating Gods word, understood that in Chirst he was a new creation (Col 2:9-10) and and after being born again and spirit filled... he acted).
28:8 and it was so that the father of Publius lay sick of fever and dysentery and was healed after Paul prayed and laid his hands on him. And when this was done, the rest of the island that had diseases came and were cured.
1 cor 2:4 And my (Paul’s) preaching was not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the power and the Spirit. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
1 cor 2:12 But we received the spirit from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.
1 cor 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in Power.
1 cor 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit with Him.
1 cor 12: 4-16 Now there are diversities of supernatural gifts, all from the same Spirit. For one is given through the spirit the word of wisdom, and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same spirit; to another faith, in the same spirit, and another gifts of healings, in one spirit; and another working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues. All by the same spirit.
1 cor 14:5 Now I would have you all speak with tongues, but rather that you should prophesy.
1 cor 14:31 For you can all prophesy, that all may learn and all may be exhorted, but let it be in an orderly manner
2 cor 12:9 More gladly will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 cor 12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle have been established among you, by signs and wonders and mighty works.
Gal 3:2 This I would like to hear from you. Did you receive the holy spirit by works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the spirit, trying now to perfect the flesh? He that supplied you with the spirit, and worked miracles among you, did He do this by works of the law or by the hearing of faith?
Jesus is God is Holy Spirit. Before anything was. He was. He started to speak, calling the seen from the unseen. He is the beginning and the end. The one for and to whom all things are. He is the omnipotent, almighty, the creator of it all. A believer is bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus, God himself. His Holy Spirit with His omnipotent power is in a believer. One with God. When a believer touches, commands, or prays, after the (good, pleasant and perfect) will of God, situations must alter because God is in him. This only by faith; not by works of the law, or flesh.
We are made after the image of God (genesis). We lost all divine properties in the fall of man. But by the Blood and Spirit of Christ we are forgiven, justified, become bornagain and placed into His image again! As through Adam we lost it all, the second Adam (Jesus) restores it All. Through Jesus, God expressed life in Human form: Healing, restoring all people that were in His reach. Since we are in the Father we have the rights of sons and daughters; we have power to forgive; power over the seen and unseen; power over demonic dominions and sicknesses. God does not change. He is the same. Yesterday, today and forevermore. He cannot lie. So Marc 16:17-18 comes to pass. The first church knew the secret of divine life given by Jesus. Thus our lifes and teaching should be the same.
62 "I am that I am. All power has been given unto Me, you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power."
