Healing is the Children’s Bread . . .
And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. Matthew 15:22-28 (KJV)
All who were not of the house of Israel were considered gentile “dogs.” This precious woman of great faith understood the grace of God Almighty. She recognized that even “the dogs eat” the same fare as is set on “their masters’ table.” This great truth is proven out again and again in Scripture and in modern day experience.
The message of the Gospel is that, healing is in the atonement and is available to all who will reach out to Jesus, the Healer.
In the Second Chapter of Mark we see Jesus healing a man in order to verify His ability to forgive sins:
Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. Mark 2:9-11
The man was instantly healed!
Jesus Christ, the same . . . Today!
My last trip to Nigeria was a very fruitful ten days for the kingdom of God. Not only the “children” were healed but the lost as well.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8 (KJV)
Two young deaf boys now hear clearly because our God is still Jehovah Rapha (The God that heals) and His Word is still true:
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
The stripes of Jesus not only gave them the ability to hear, but one of them was also dumb (unable to speak) and now is able to talk. His future is brighter than ever because Jesus passed his way.
Many others were healed and delivered from demonic torments. The result was, that close to a hundred people came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior during the nightly evangelism crusades. Each of them has been followed up and will be discipled by the sponsoring church.
Bishop Dr. Boma Lawson and his Calvary Temple International Church congregation put on the “Prophetic Signal” conference that included the nightly crusade meetings. The church was filled and over flowing, with people standing outside the windows and over sixty children in a tent next to the church building. He said, “The church has not been full since we built it. This is very exciting!”
