“Take Two Aspirins …”

Text; Matthew 4:23 – 24
 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. 24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.


Introduction
  The nature of the early ministry of Jesus has at least three clear parts.
Preaching the Gospel
 Peace for the Hurting/ Confused
Physical Healing for the ill.

We are going to focus on the reality and importance of healing. All of these aspects speak of freedom, Praise the Lord!!! 
Let us begin today at Christ’s early ministry;

I.Preach the Gospel
A.Matthew 4:17 , 23
 17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

B.Luke 8:1 
8 Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him,

C.We have freedom from personal sin through Christ!!


II.Peace for the Hurting/Confused
A.Matthew 11:28–30 
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

B.Romans 8:15 
15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

C.Matthew 4:23 – 25
 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. 24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. 25 Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

III.Physical Healing for the Sick/ILL
A.Matthew 4:23 – 25
 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. 24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. 25 Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

B.James 5:15 ( today's scriptural encouragement for healing today) 
And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

C.Notice it is OK to ask for anointing.

D.July 11 we are planning a special anointing service, God Bless!!!

Conclusion – This fact that God cares for our complete persons is so important.
God help us as we learn and touched together.

Take two Aspirin … part 2
Text 
  Psalm 103: 1–5
 103 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Introduction 
 Last Sunday we begin a look at healing. From Jesus’ early ministry Christ
made physical healing a vital part of His ministry. 
Today we are going to look at a clear example of divine healing.
 The story of the “Muddy Jordan”

The Covenant of healing for God’s Children.
Exodus 23:25  
 25 “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.

“Jehovah – Rapha” - “God who heals / God our Physician”

Naaman – “gracious, pleasant, well formed”


  Man of;
I.Position
A.2 Kings 5:1
5Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper.

B.1 Peter 2: 13 – 14
13 Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, 14 or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.

C.Deuteronomy 8: 17 – 1
 17 then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’
18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

D.Captain of the Army, man of victory

II.Prestige
A.2 Kings 5: 1
 Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper.

B.Proverbs 22:1
 22 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
C.Ecclesiastes 7:1
 7 A good name is better than precious ointment,
And the day of death than the day of one’s birth;

D.Honor with the people, respected, mighty Man of Valor

III.Problem
A.2 Kings 5:1
5 Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper.

B.He was a leper / terminally ill, fatal

C.Liked unto sin  

D.Romans 3:23 
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

E.1 Corinthians 10:13
13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

F.Lepers were separated. Sin separates us from God.


IV. Prophet
A.2 Kings 5: 8 – 11
8 So it was, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, “Why have you torn your clothes? Please let him come to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.”
9 Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. 10 And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” 11 But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, “Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’

B.Elisha –“Man of God”

C.2 Kings 5: 8 – 11 the discourse
8 So it was, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, “Why have you torn your clothes? Please let him come to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.”
9 Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. 10 And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” 11 But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, “Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’


D.2 Kings 5: 12 – 15 the healing
12 Are not the Abanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them and be clean?” So he turned and went away in a rage. 13 And his servants came near and spoke to him, and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do something great, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” 14 So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
15 And he returned to the man of God, he and all his aides, and came and stood before him; and he said, “Indeed, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, except in Israel; now therefore, please take a gift from your servant.”

E.Healing- the bringing together of health, sickness removed!!

F.John 8:36
 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Conclusion – From a muddy river to a perfect body!!!


“Take Two Aspirin …” Part 3
“Don’t Fret the Lord is Coming …”

Text:
 John 11:11
 11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.”

 Deuteronomy 31:7 – 8 
7 Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it. 8 And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

Introduction – This is our third in the study of “Divine Physical Healing”.
We looked at Jesus making healing a vital part of His ministry from the beginning.

We looked at God’s Covenant for the healing of His people and an Old Testament example of Healing.

Today we look at one of Jesus’s most important examples of Divine Healing.

The story of “Don’t Worry the ‘I AM ‘is on the way”
 The Lesson on Lazarus;


I.The Man Was Sick
A.John 11: 1 / 3 
11 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.”

B.Sickness and death are always part of the human experience

C.1 Peter 5: 7 – 10
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

D.Problems and pain are real for everyone.


II.The Man and His Family Were Loved
A.John 11: 5 / 11
 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus
11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.”

B.This story has many important points, The love Jesus had for them was key.

C.Friend –“harmony, affection, friendship, love”
D.1 John 3:1
3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

III.The Healer had a Plan
A.John 11:14–15 / 27
14 Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him.”

27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”

B.Teaching for eternity, He always cares.
 John 11:33 – 35
 33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. 34 And He said, “Where have you laid him?”
They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.”
35 Jesus wept.

C.Psalms 9:10 
 10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

D.1 Peter 1: 4
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,

E.The Son of God cares and is always on time!


IV.The Healer Raised the Dead
A.John 11:38 – 44 
38 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.”
Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Then they took away the stone [a]from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” 43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” 44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”

B.Deuteronomy 31:7–8 
7 Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it. 8 And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

C.When we cannot see a way of escape, He Can and Does!!!

D.Thank You Jesus!!

Conclusion – Have faith in the Plan!!!! Even when we don’t understand it!!!
