THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION

 

When Jesus came down from the mountain after He gave the Sermon on the Mount, crowds of people followed Him.

A leper came and kneeled down, bowing to Him and said, Lord, If you're willing, you can make me clean. Jesus put out His hand and touched him, and said, I will, be clean. Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. Jesus told him not to tell anyone, but to show himself to the priest and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. If you would like to read about the gift(s) that are mentioned here, you'll find them in Leviticus 14:4-32.

THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION STUDY ON THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION STORY WITH THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION MESSAGE

As you can well imagine, if you had leprosy and you were healed instantly by Jesus simply touching you, (and your faith) you'd find it hard to keep quiet about it. Well, so did this (former) leper, and he went out and spread the news of it so widely that Jesus couldn't openly come into the city anymore. Mark has an interesting way of describing the enthusiasm of the leper spreading the news Ö He says, But he went out and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter. So Jesus stayed outside the city in desert places, and people still came to Him from all over to hear Him and be healed by Him.

Shortly after that, Jesus went to Capernaum and a centurion (the commander of 100 soldiers in the ancient Roman army) had a servant that was dear to him that was paralyzed and ready to die. When he heard of Jesus, he sent the elders of the Jews to ask if He would come and heal him. When they asked Jesus, they told Him that the centurion was a worthy man, that he loved Israel and had built them a synagogue.

THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION TRUTH ON THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION BLESSING BRINGING FORTH THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION HOPE

Jesus went with them, but when He came near to the house, the centurion sent friends out to Him saying Lord, don't go to any trouble, I'm not worthy for you to come into my home, and I didn't feel worthy to ask you myself, but only say the Word and my servant will be healed. I also am a man who is given authority with soldiers under me. I say to this man, Go, and he goes, and to another, Come, and he comes, and to my servant, Do this, and he does it.

Jesus was astonished and He turned around and told the people who were following Him, Truly I say to you, I haven't found such great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say to you, That many will come from the east and west, and will sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. But the children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

What Jesus meant was that just as this Roman centurion of great faith, didn't come from Israel, there will be many Gentiles of great faith in Heaven. But you can be an Israelite and if you have no faith in Jesus Christ, you'll be thrown into outer darkness. Weeping and gnashing of teeth is a phrase that Jesus uses many times to show how horribly devastating it will be.

Jesus said, Go your way, and as you believed, it will be done for you. The centurion's servant was healed in the very same hour.

The next day, Jesus went into a city called Nain. Many of His disciples and many other people went with Him. When He arrived at the gate of the city, there was a dead man being carried out, who was an only son of his mother, and she was a widow. Many people of the city were with her.

When Jesus saw her, He had compassion on her and said, Donít cry. He went and touched the coffin and the people who carried it stood still. Jesus said, Young man, I say to you, Arise.

The man who was dead, sat up and started to talk, and Jesus took him to his mother. A fear came upon everyone who saw it happen and they glorified God saying, A great prophet is among us, and, God has visited His people.

A rumor of what Jesus did spread throughout all Judśa and all the lands surrounding it and the disciples of John the Baptist told Him about it.

Jesus made the man who was dead, come to life. I ask you, who else can do that, but the Son of God?

THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION BROUGHT FORTH HEALING.
