The Will of God to Heal

01/12/2009
Mathew 8
:2-3
Once and for all Jesus sets the record straight on His will. If you are willing? I AM WILLING! It has never about His willingness but about your capacity to recieve.

:8-13
Jesus comments that the GREAT faith he found here is one that says: I don't need you to come, I don't need to see, I just need you to say it and I'll call that done!

:16 Jesus drives out demons... how does He do it? Does he kick them out with His foot? Does He beat them without His hand? Does He tell them to lay out a fleese and see if God is really willing to deliver? No...

Jesus Drives Demons Out: WITH HIS WORD! And so it is for every believer, it is by the words of your mouth that you are Justified... made right... completed...

:17-18
Isaiah 53 is qouted by Mathew here. MANY comment and say that Isaiah 53 is just talking about "spiritual" healing of the soul and that it is not a promise for devine healing of the body. Apparently someone forgot to tell Matthew. According to Matthew Isaiah 53 says that Jesus is our healer! If you need healing today, use your words like He's been teaching the whole chapter and take it.

:26
Jesus has spent time telling them how important words are by pointing out the GREAT Faith... He showed them by casting out devils with His words... NOW The disciples come to him with a storm.

Keep in mind... These are fishermen... They've weathered storms before and spent their whole lives on boats. Most of these men have seen enough storms to sleep through them themselves. THIS storm is qouted in another recording to be a GREAT storm also translated MEGA storm. It's got these seasoned professionals FREAKED OUT!

Do they:
A. Cast the storm down themselves and let Him sleep.

B. Go to Jesus and say: "Master... hey there, excuse me... we have a fairly bad storm here, worse we've ever seen. Would you mind helping us deal with this, we know you have the answer.

C. Run crying and screaming and blaming Him for sleeping thereby questioning His will and intentions when they say: "Don't you care that we're dying here?"

The answer:
C.

What did JESUS expect them to do?
"What's wrong with you boys, why are you such cowards with little puny faith!"
Jesus expected A. or AT LEAST B.

Then they get to the Gadarenes, find two demon possessed men and cast the devils out and the people ask Him to leave...

My question:
WHY did Jesus let them take the pigs? DID Jesus LET them take the pigs?

After considering this a moment I realized. These people are not covenant people. They are on the border of Israel and Persia. They are raising pigs which is not a Jewish thing to do as they are unclean animals. If they are Jewish they're not living it.

Their reaction to Jesus afterward already shows us they are resistant to the Gospel.

Moreover, demons have every right to deal with animals and people that are not covered by the covenant, or not living in line with it. Jesus, prior to his death and ressurection couldn't tell them NOT to go into the pigs. Therefore He didn't give them permission other than that He didn't stop them...

Also interesting... The pigs had more sense than the two men. The pigs knew better than to live with demons and ran off and killed themselves! Sometimes animals knows things humans don't know!

So Jesus Showed us the power of words, faith vs doubt, and how to walk in correct authority. You don't cross lines you don't have the right to. COULD Jesus have said: "Go to hell and be bound for a thousand years!" I've heard people say that in prayer... I think if He could he would have... but the demons themselves point out something here... "Have you come to torment us before the appointed time?"

There has been a time set and appointed for Demon Judgment. For whatever reasons God has allowed them to come to earth, and then Adam gave them His authority. Jesus took it back and gave it to us. So we walk in the very same authority granted to Adam in Gen 1:28 now. Those who are outside of Christ do not though. Here in lies the battle.

There are two laws at work in the earth.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life.
  • The Law of Sin and Death. 

You must choose which you will participate in.

Romans 8:2
because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.


  1. Deuteronomy 30:19
    This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
    Deuteronomy 30:18-20 (in Context) Deuteronomy 30 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Proverbs 18:21
    The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
    Proverbs 18:20-22 (in Context) Proverbs 18 (Whole Chapter) 
  3. Matthew 12:36
    But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
    Matthew 12:35-37 (in Context) Matthew 12 (Whole Chapter)

    1. Matthew 12:35-37 (New King James Version)

      35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart[a] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
