THE UNSHAKABLE KINGDOM (PART 4)
We emphasised the power of God's kingdom as evident in transformed lives last week. Today, we are reflecting upon kingdom power in healing and miracles.
Healing and miracles are vital focus of Jesus' ministry. Jesus healed the sick and performed diverse miracles as signs and foretaste of the kingdom. Healing of Jesus revealed His ultimate power and authority over evil and oppressive forces, His dominion over Satan.
When the early disciples were sent out to preach the good news of the kingdom, the command given them was "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give." (Matt. 10:8; cf Lk 10:9)
The power of the kingdom is still available to bring health and deliverance to human body today. Faith activates all that Jesus did during His earthly ministry in our own time. The message of the kingdom is the same and the process of partaking in its blessings is as valid as ever.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Heb. 13:8)
That said, it should be mentioned that believers in Christ are not supposed to run after miracles. They are expected to proclaim the good news of the kingdom and miracles bearing them witness as they go.
ACTION: Do you have a situation needing healing or miraculous intervention? Your decision to exercise faith will bring all that Jesus did to reality in your situation.
I join my faith with yours to declare that as you believe God for it, it's released in Jesus' name!
