Text:

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

1When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.

 2And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”

3Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Matthew 8:1-4

What does it mean to touch?

Touch has been defined as:

·         To come into or be in contact with

·         An act of touching someone or something

·         To have an effect on

·         To make a difference to

·         To come into contact with and perceive (something)

May you come in contact with God’s touch today in Jesus name.

 

What does it mean to heal?

·         The process of making or becoming sound or healthy again.

·         Cause (a wound, injury, or person) to become sound or healthy again.

·         Alleviate (a person's distress or anguish).

·         Correct or put right (an undesirable situation).

May you and yours become sound and healthy again by the power in the blood of Jesus.

May wounds and injuries in your bodies, souls, and spirit receive healing in Jesus name.

May every undesirable state be corrected in your life, the life of your loved one, your family and destiny in Jesus name.

However, there are some views which try to unsuccessfully copy God’s healing:

 

There is something known as:

“Therapeutic touch (commonly shortened to "TT"), known by some as "non-contact therapeutic touch" (NCTT),[1] is a pseudoscientific [2] energy therapy which practitioners claim promotes healing and reduces pain and anxiety. "Therapeutic Touch" is a registered trademark in Canada for the "[s]tructured and standardized healing practice performed by practitioners trained to be sensitive to the receiver's energy field that surrounds the body;...no touching is required."[3]

Practitioners of therapeutic touch state that by placing their hands on, or near, a patient, they are able to detect and manipulate what they say is the patient's energy field.[4] One highly cited study, designed by the then-nine-year-old Emily Rosa and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998, found that practitioners of therapeutic touch could not detect the presence or absence of a hand placed a few inches above theirs when their vision was obstructed.[5][6][7][8] Simon Singh and Edzard Ernst concluded in their 2008 book Trick or Treatment that "the energy field was probably nothing more than a figment in the imaginations of the healers".[9] The American Cancer Society noted, "Available scientific evidence does not support any claims that TT can cure cancer or other diseases."[10] A 2004 Cochrane review found no good evidence that it helped with wound healing, but the authors withdrew it in 2016 "due serious concerns over the validity of included studies"

 

What does the healing touch mean?

·         The touch of God is real with positive beneficial impacts. Many testimonies abound in current day of people healed from cancer, migraines, raised from the dead etc., by the power of God.

 

·         The touch of healing is a touch of divinity.

 

·         The divine touching the earthly to bring about a positive transformation in the life, body and future of the touched as in the case of the leper in today’s text. His leprosy, his problem, the problem that had been causing frustration for the family of the leper was removed immediately the healing touch of Jesus came upon the leper.

 

God’s healing touch will come upon you and yours in Jesus name.

 

Some of the ways God touches:

1.       God can touch you physically: As in the case of the leper in Matthew 8:1-4 and the blind man in Mark 8:22-26.

 

2.       By His Presence: In Numbers 12, God showed up to defend Moses when Aaron and Miriam were gossiping against Moses. The gossiping ended, Mariam was judged and stricken with leprosy. Aaron was pleading for mercy. His presence cannot only bring healing, His presence can also fight against your enemies, justify you and subdue your frustrating adversaries.

Healing brings about joy and in His presence is fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11)

In Matthew 9:18-26, a woman who had a sickness for 12 years touched the hem, the tip of Jesus's clothes and she received her healing. She had gone to several doctors, not only did she not get better, she spent all the money she had and she grew worse.

In Luke 5:17, the Bible says God's power was present to heal. When God's presence is present as it is today, His power to heal and save will work positively in your situation in Jesus name.

 

God’s power to save and deliver is present, you will receive your healing in Jesus name.

 

In Matthew 4:23 and Matthew 8:16 all who came into His presence were healed.

You and yours will receive your healing today in Jesus name.

 

3.       Word of God: Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1-5).

The entrance of God's words brings light into every situation of darkness (Psalm 119:130).

 

Healing also comes by His word. The scriptures state in Psalm 107:20 that God sent His word to

His people and the word sent healed them and delivered them from their destructions.

 

Today, you and yours will be delivered from every form of destruction in Jesus mighty name.

 

God heals through the instrumentality of His word.

 

Either He touches you, you touch Him, you come into His presence or He sends His words you will receive your healing in Jesus mighty name

 

Pray: Father, touch me, touch my loved one and deliver us from every form of destruction in Jesus name.
