He Is The Same Jesus Today

Do you ever wonder why people of today don't believe in miracles? Oh they say they do, but most of the time they are just spouting scripture or something they read or heard. Then when someone comes and says "did you hear about so and so, they have cancer and it has spread through their entire body and there is nothing that can be done for them. It will take a miracle to heal them." I have heard people talk like this, and I want to say," then there is something that can be done. Jesus still heals today, He still performs miracles today, He is still in authority today, quick let's pray for a miracle if that is what it will take and let's believe that there is nothing that He can't heal." Sometimes, I have said this, and people look at me like I have fallen and hit my head. You see, they would rather wallow in the misery of believing that there is nothing that can be done, and just write this person off.

Then there are those who sometimes just gets tired of the fight. They get frustrated at every turn or every bad report from the doctor. Then those are the ones who need to be in the word, rebuking the reports with what the word says. It is as simple as this, do you believe the report more than you believe the word of GOD? You see, that report is just words printed on a piece of paper that was spit out of some machine, then interpreted by the doctor. The word of GOD is interpreted by the HOLY SPIRIT whom JESUS left within you. A piece of Him. You have to decide where to place your faith.

Faith is a powerful force. Faith changes everything. It can change black to white and vice versa. Faith provides a way when there is no way, answers when there are no answers. Faith changes no into yes. God is moved by our Faith. Faith is a gift of the Holy Spirit and a sign to unbelievers. We pray for faith when we have none or when the little we have seems to be lost in the circumstances. We keep asking and believing until God answers.

Matthew 9 v 6-7....But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins" then He said to the paralytic, "Arise take up your bed and go to your house." And he arose and departed to his house."....

Can you imagine seeing that today. If you knew someone who was a paralytic and you and he both had enough faith in the word of God to say to him, arise and take your bed and go home, and he jumped up, how many of you would still be standing and how many fell out with unbelief at what you were seeing?

Matt. 9 v 20-22.....And suddenly a woman who had a flow of blood for 12 years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around and when He saw her, He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your FAITH has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.....

We read over and over again the miracles, Jesus performed, and we say we believe them, but yet why do we think that those same miracles can not be performed today? Why do we think the doctor's report is the last word? Jesus still has the last word today. We just need enough faith to call out to Him.

He left each of us as believers with the same power He had when He was here on this earth, and He said we would do even greater things through His power and authority that He leaves with us.

Matt. 19 v 26.....But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with GOD all things are possible."......

Mark 16 v 17-18...."And these signs will follow those who believe; In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."......

You see the power is not yours to heal, or the doctor, the power is in the NAME, in whom you are working through. The name of JESUS is where the power for healing comes from. That name did not fade away with the years. That name is still in authority today. That name is still above all else today, and will be tomorrow, and forever. The name of JESUS is where we need to put our faith. AMEN!
