Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. (Luke 7:22,23)
This winter has been especially cold, snowy, and icy for us in the Jeffersonville area. With that we’ve had a difficult time keeping the sidewalks clean enough at the Tabernacle for it to be safe to have church without worrying about believers slipping and falling.
The brother that takes care of the maintenance at the church was out one Saturday trying to clean off some ice so we could have service the next day and as he was shoveling he ended up slipping and falling.
The doctors found a tear in his rotator cuff. He was unable to lift his arm up, or even bend his elbow without searing pain. It was sad to see him keeping rhythm with his left hand instead of his right as he led songs the past couple of services. Well, Wednesday night, he was keeping the rhythm with his right arm, the one with the tear in the shoulder. Bro Collins testified about it, saying that he couldn’t even lift his arm, but God had healed our brother and he could lift his arms above his head with no pain! God also healed the problem he was having in his foot!
Truly God is merciful and good to us. He didn’t promise us divine health, but He promised us divine healing. Signs and wonders are STILL following the Message of the Hour.
Of course, you all heard about the brother who couldn’t speak for over 2 years, prayed the closing prayer in service (yes audibly!) about a year ago, right?
