It is written, God is the same yesterday, today and tommorow.
It is also written that Jesus is Immanuel, “God among us”.
And Jesus Himself testified that those who saw Him saw the Father too.
So it means we only need to understand Jesus to understand God, the Father.
When it comes to healing, Jesus is always “I am willing…”
When it comes to sinners, Jesus is always “Your sins are forgiven…”
When talking about His purpose, He declared, “I have come to give you life and life more abundantly…”
When asked for a sign to prove that He is indeed the Messiah, He replied, “The blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear.. and even the dead are raised.”
Some people would argued that it is written in the Bible that God “can” give diseases.
Of course, He can, He is God after all… but the question is never about “Can He?” but “Will He” ?
Ask yourself, did Jesus ever gave anybody leprosy or blindness to “test” anyone? In fact, it is written that those were almost always caused by evil spirits. Now, would a God has anything to do with those filthy things?
Please, don’t misrepresent our God.
Blessedly for me, this is what my God is all about: (Psalm 103) Pay particular attention to verse 8 and 10.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits–
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6 The LORD works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 He does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
Jesus, healing a lame man.
