~ The Incredible Power of His Words! ~
Passage ~ “No man ever spoke like this man!” (John 7:46).
His Words Offer Peace and Comfort ~ Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). “May the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus” (Romans 15:5).
His Words Heal Physical Infirmities ~ “Then Jesus came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him. So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put H’s hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, "I see men like trees, walking.’ Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly’ (Mark 8:22-25). “Suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve 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” (Matthew 9:20-22).
His Words Have Power Over Life and Death ~ “Now when Jesus had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth!’ And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, ‘Loose him, and let him go’ (John 11:43-44).
His Words Have Power Over the Forces of Evil ~ “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe — and tremble!” (James 2:19).
His Words Have Power Over Material Objects ~ “Jesus said to them, ‘Fill the water pots with water.’ And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, ‘Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.’ And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom” (John 2:7-9).
His Words Have Power Over Creation ~ “Jesus said to them, ‘Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?’ Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, ‘Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?’” (Matthew 8:26-27).
Conclusion ~ His words have the same power right now. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
