And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. And all the city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. Mark 1:32-34.
In giving us His Son, the Father gave the most costly gift that heaven could bestow. This gift it is our privilege to use in our ministration to the sick. Let Christ be your dependence. Commit every case to the Great Healer; let Him guide in every operation. The prayer offered in sincerity and in faith will be heard. This will give confidence to the physicians and courage to the sufferer.
I have been instructed that we should lead the sick in our institutions to expect large things because of the faith of the physician in the Great Healer, who, in the years of His earthly ministry, went through the towns and villages of the land and healed all who came to Him. None were turned away; He healed them all. Let the sick realize that, although unseen, Christ is present to bring relief and healing.
After His resurrection, Christ met with His disciples, and for forty days instructed them concerning their future work. On the day of His ascension, He met with the disciples in a mountain in Galilee, where He had appointed them. And He said to them, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth; go ye therefore, and teach all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:18-20). It is the privilege of every physician and every sufferer to believe this promise; it is life to all who believe.—Loma Linda Messages, 355.
October 2, 2021 is designated as one of four special Quarterly Days of Prayer. Formerly the Day of Prayer and Fasting, this 4th Quarter we will focus on praying for wisdom how to understand and share the Three Angels' Messages. If ever there was a time in history that we should be preparing to share the Three Angels' Messages of love it is now. Spiritual darkness is thickening and we need His love and the Holy Spirit’s power to share the call to repentance and the good news of salvation with others. It is time to prepare for Jesus’ soon return. Join us for this special Day of Prayer.
Japan is one of the most difficult countries to reach with the gospel message. That’s why the world church invited a group of Japanese pastors to go to the Philippines to hold evangelistic meetings—some for the very first time—with the hopes they would return to Japan and hold their own series there. The plan was a success, but what we didn’t mention is that three courageous women—with no ministerial training—also felt called to join them and preach their own evangelistic series. Here is a short video of their stories. It reminds us, once again, that God calls not only those who are talented and able to do a task, but He enables all who are willing to go when He calls—and the results will amaze us every time!
In this sermon produced by 3ABN, Jill Morikone will share from the Bible 8 keys to resist temptation. As Christians, we love God and want to obey the things He has told us to do and not to do. We understand it's in our best interest, but fallen man has become selfish and deceitful. There is a constant struggle to turn away from evil and towards the ideal that God has revealed to us. Watch and listen as Jill digs through the scriptures to reveal how you can resist the temptations of this world.
