ON THE JOB TRAINING
Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them. Matthew 8:14,15
Jesus has gifted His body with power and authority over demons, sickness, disease and infirmity! He has given these gifts for us to exercise them in the earth as a witness of His grace, mercy and compassion for those who are afflicted.
My first ministry to the poor after being saved, filled with His Spirit and spending several years in church was taking a family I found living in the woods with three children out of their dire circumstance and provided a home. It was a major undertaking, but God graciously supplied the need from a newspaper story and they were given a home fully furnished, new clothes and shoes for the kids and a car!
The night they moved in I took a reporter from the newspaper by to see what the story had produced and when we walked in their daughter was sick with a high fever. I immediately rebuked the fever and it left her and everyone was amazed at the divine power of Holy Spirit and His grace and mercy! God is good and His mercy endures forever!
"Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:4-5
