Message for October 6, 2013 from Pastor Jerry

“And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, ‘Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.’  Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, ‘I am willing; be cleansed.’  Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Matt. 8:2-3(NKJV)

When you look at the scope of the four Gospels you must be awe struck by the mighty miracles and signs that Jesus performed during His ministry.  From deliverance from demons to raising the dead He showed the scope of His power and compassion.  These “signs and wonders” were not just to prove He was Messiah but to fulfill the promise for New Covenant believers.  Jesus began an era of grace that was to extend until His return to earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

        The Scriptures say that God is not a respecter of persons.  He is willing to do for everyone what He will do for anyone.  Jesus ushered in a new creation meant for all who believe.  What can we believe?  Are we limited to only what we can understand?  I am quite sure that Mary and Martha did not understand all about their brother being raised from the dead.  Man’s opinion and God’s opinion are not always the same.  Man says, “It just can’t happen.”  God says, “All things are possible to him who believes.

        Our part of our relationship with God is to believe what He has promised.  We can only believe that God has provided all we need.  We cannot bring it into being by faith but we can transfer it from the unseen realm into the realm of sight.  Faith is the key to receiving from God.  It grasps the things not seen and makes them visible.

        The greater our faith the more we see things come to pass.  Your faith is not weak but needs to be gathered as a storehouse of power in time of need.  “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom. 10:17(NKJV)  The more you read and know the Word of God the greater your ability to believe that “all things are possible.”
