Healing: Faith Coupled with Courage
It came to pass, that as He was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging; and hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. They told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passes by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. They which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace, but he cried so much the more, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him; and when he was come near, He asked him, saying, what wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?
He said, LORD, that I may receive my sight.
Jesus said unto him, receive thy sight; thy faith hath saved thee; And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying GOD! All the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto GOD! Luke 18:35-43 (KJV)
- What is going on regarding the multitude of people, why were they trying to block a miraculous blessing?
- Who is passing through the neighborhood?
- Why and for what purpose is a certain person continuously shouting & who is he?
- How does the person sitting by the way side address Yahshua?
- What does Yahshua ask the man sitting by the way side, and how does he respond to the question?
- Does the man sitting by the way side receive an answer and how soon?
- What caused the miraculous blessing?
Reminder: Notice that Yahshua stated: “thy faith hath made thee whole”. Within the Holy Scriptures, it is stated, “without faith it is impossible to please GOD”.
Why is faith so important? Faith pleases YHVH GOD
Faith is complete trust; it is unshakeable certainty that what has been requested or hoped for will be provided. When odds are stacked against us, we as believers know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Father, which is in Heaven will provide.
When we humble ourselves and go to His Throne of Grace with thanksgiving, and present our requests to Him, by faith, we know our prayers will be answered.
There are pre-requisites:
Humble ourselves under His Mighty Hand
Repent for all unrighteousness
Offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and then let our requests be made known unto Him, and we do all this in the Name of His Holy Son, Yahshua ha Mashiach.
Have faith in GOD
Do not lean to your understanding, but acknowledge YHVH our GOD
Always pray (unselfishly)
Prayerfully, intercede for others
Keep watch over your soul (see Galatians chapter 5)
Diligently study and read the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Began reading the first 5 books of the Hebrew Scriptures and the first 5 of the New Testament.
Be faithful to YHVH our GOD, who is the Most High GOD, the Creator of all there is, was, and ever will be. Believe in His Son, whom He sent to us, namely Yahshua ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ, His Anointed and Appointed Redeemer; and the Shepherd and Bishop of our souls (I Peter 2:25).
