Deaf ears

Mark 7:32 They *brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they *implored Him to lay His hand on him.”

I am so excited to share today’s word, when a man who was deaf and spoke with difficulty was brought to Jesus, Jesus did things differently, let me highlight it:

  • Jesus took him aside from the crowd, by himself
  • put His fingers into his ears, and
  • after spitting
  • He touched his tongue with the saliva;
  • looking up to heaven
  • with a deep sigh, said
  • "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!"

This particular man that was brought to Jesus  needed a different touch from Jesus because of the curses on him, (not all patients are the same). It was important that he be separated from the crowd and brought closer to Jesus, and His personal touch was needed to dispel the demons and darkness from him.  Did not Jesus personally touch the man with leprosy and say, “ it is my will to heal you.?’ He put his fingers into his ears, like a syringe his fingers were inserted into his ears, so that whatever caused the blockage could be dealt with.  He spit upon his own finger, and then touched his tongue,  to loosen that with which his tongue was tied; the saliva of Jesus was the medicine.  Say Amen.  He is our Healer!

People who refuse to hear the Gospel and run away from the church need a closer touch of Jesus, they need to be handled patiently like the way Jesus treated the deaf man. We have a whole lot of people around us today, who have their ears clogged with headsets listening to either secular music or movie songs, all they need is a greater touch from God.  I would like to share something with you’ll before I sign off.  I met a young lab technician, I found him extremely efficient at his job, I decided to share Jesus with him, so I started my conversation like this,” we are Christian ministers”, he said ‘oh’.  Then I continued, ‘when I was 5 months pregnant, I was diagnosed with multiple fibroids”, he said,” when I give injections, I look for veins..” His reply did not have anything to do with what I was talking, he stuck to medical language; I did not stop, I continued, “ Jesus healed me and I delivered a baby boy”, he said, “ all injections are not the same, you need to be patient in doing this.” His reply was absolutely contrary to what I was talking.  Before I could finish, he took his bag and left with a smile.  I sat there flummoxed.  I realized he was spiritually deaf!  The world needs JESUS and you are the one called to share Jesus with the lost world!
