Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there. Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them. Matthew 15:29-30 NKJV
People are lame, blind, mute and maimed physically and spiritually today. People suffer the same illnesses, injuries, handicaps and maladies people suffered when Jesus walked the earth.
People were plagued by demonic activity in biblical times. There are just as many people plagued by demonic activity today. Not in the same ways perhaps. The physical manifestations are different.
Today people are ensnared by addictions to drugs, alcohol and immorality. Others are plagued by the same demonic activities that plagued people in biblical times.
I have interviewed young men whose fathers, brothers, and even mothers are serving time in prison. Some of them are multi generation gang members. Families are locked into cycles of sin, shame and violence.
The devil does not cause people to do these things. We have the freedom to make our own choices. People are led into bondage as a result of the spiritual battle taking place in the Heavenly realm.
Great multitudes brought family, friends and loved ones to Jesus’ feet so He could heal them. Jesus healed them because He loved them.
Jesus wants you to bring people before Him so He can heal them today! Bring your friends, family members and loved ones before Jesus in prayer. Go forth as a might man or woman of God. Do it in the power and might of Almighty God!
You do not need to be a Pastor Priest or Theologian to share the gospel with people. Tell them what Jesus has done for you. Keep it real. The gospel does not need to be delivered at the top of your lungs. You do not need to exaggerate. Speak the truth in love through faith in Jesus!
Ask Jesus to reveal Himself to people who need healing and restoration. Pray for the Lord to reveal Himself as the Great Physician. Bring people to the feet of Jesus. Ask the Lord to protect them from the forces of darkness seeking to devour them.
Ask Jesus to pull down strongholds that plague families. Ask Jesus to crush false arguments and vain imaginations in opposition to Him. Pray for people not to believe lies taught and perpetrated by people under the influence of demonic forces.
Pray for the people God loves today and every day!
