Luke 4:39-41 says “And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. And devils also came out of many, crying out saying Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he (Jesus) rebuking them suffered them not to speak; for they knew that he was Christ.”
I’ve come this week to encourage you in the Lord and to let you know that Jesus still heals. Saints of God as “many were healed” in those days so can Jesus do the same today. Notice he “rebuked” the fever which was in Peter’s mother-in-law and it left her immediately. That’s the power that God still has and will always have over sickness. Maybe you are standing in need of a touch from Jesus over your body. He can, according to your faith, heal you from this sickness. There was a “spirit” behind this sickness, and that’s why Jesus rebuked it. As it said in verse 41 that “Devils came out of many” which indicated that they were the “root” to the cause of these diseases. As it where in those days so is it today that Satan and his army will attack the body in ways to destroy what God has created. But as Jesus was touching in those days so can he do the same today.
As a Christian you must understand that satan will do “anything” through “whatever” he can to hinder you. If Jesus did it back then he can do it again now in our lives. Jesus still has power over cancer, over diabetes, over arteries, over heart attacks; he is still God over your body. He saved and touched your soul, which means he can do the same for your body. Believe it by faith, and walk in it and declare it over you life.
