The life of Christ, from His baptism to His ascension, following the Harmony of the Gospels.

We trust that you all had a blessed and happy holiday. Marie and I were happy that most of our family was able to gather together. We had much to eat and were able to go freely to the house of God and worship Him and partake of His table Christmas eve.
However, I received an email from a subscriber who is in a country where none of the above is possible. He and other believers must meet in secret. Please pray for believers worldwide who are unable to worship our Lord openly and freely.
Happy New Year in Christ Jesus! Another year is ending and a new one is coming. Simply one  year closer to His coming.
The life of Christ, from His baptism to His ascension, following the Harmony of the Gospels.
115: A Blind Man and a Dumb Man healed: Mt. 9:27-34
Matthew 9:28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
When Jesus left the house of Jairus, He was followed by two blind men who cried out, "Thou son of David, have mercy on us." Jesus asked if they believed that He was able. They replied that they did indeed believe. He touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith, be it unto you," and their eyes were opened.
After this a dumb man who was possessed of the devil was brought to Jesus. Jesus cast out the devil and the man was able to speak. The Pharisees could only claim that Jesus cast out devils by the power of the devil himself ( See Par. 91 and Matthew 12: 22 for a similar incident).
Conclusion and Application.
When the blind men cried out, Jesus thou son of David have mercy on us, I believe that they were acknowledging more than His human ancestry, they were acknowledging that He was Messiah. The more we know of Him the more we recognize His absolute Deity.
Believe ye that I am able to do this?  Jesus was the only hope for these two blind men. Their problem was insurmountable and overwhelming. In this age of comfort and medical miracles, we sometimes forget that the Saviour is looking on as we struggle with our problems.  He is simply waiting for us to cry out, "Lord help me!" He will help us, just as he helped these two men, all according to our faith.
As your faith is, so be it (John 15:7, 16:23; Matthew 17:20, 18:19; Ephesians 3:20; I John 3:22, 5:14). These men believed and they received. I’m reminded of a humorous misquote of scripture that has a lot of truth. "Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shant be disappointed."

There was a preacher that was trying to sell his horse. A potential buyer came to the church for a test ride. 'Before you start' the preacher said,'You should know that this horse only responds to church talk.' 'Go' is 'Praise the Lord' and 'Stop' is 'Amen.'
So the man on the horse says 'Praise the Lord,' and the horse starts to trot. The man again says 'Praise the Lord,' and the horse starts to gallop. Suddenly there is a cliff right in front of the horse and the man yells 'Amen!!!' The horse stops just at the edge of the cliff.
The man wipes the sweat from his brow and says 'Praise the Lord.'";
Keep Looking Up!
