Raising the Dead – Hopeless cases continued

I have a busy day ahead so I’ll just write a few thoughts.  More to follow on this topic.

People say, “Where there’s life,  theres’s hope”  Conversely it could be said then that,  “Where there’s no life,  there’s no hope”. There’s no hope for a dead person.

That didn’t stop Jesus.

Jesus raised dead people to life;so did quite a few of his followers. This is also our heritage,  as believers.

MARK 10 verse 8 says, “Heal the sick,  cleanse the lepers,  raise the dead,  cast out demons.” This is our commission too.

Hopeless cases

The definition of a hopeless case, according to the Babylon Dictionary is “a situation or instance incapable of improvement, irreparable specimen, lost cause.”

There is no such thing as a hopeless case with God. There are many times in the Bible where hopeless cases received hope.

In Acts 3 Peter and John were going to the temple to pray. On their way they met a man who had been crippled from birth. He was in his forties and he had never known how to walk. He was not expecting to receive healing – when he saw Peter and John he just expected them to give him some money. He was totally resigned to the situation he was in and did not expect things to change.

Yet suddenly , there were two men in front of him who decided to intervene. They said to him, “In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And the man, who had never known how to walk started to walk, leap and praise God. No longer an outcast, the previously lame man went into the temple with Peter and John.

When all the people saw him walking and praising God they were filled with wonder and amazement.

There are hopeless cases in your town that God is going to do a miracle for.

Nothing is impossible with God.

In Mark 5:25-29 the woman had an issue of blood for twelve years. She had been to see many doctors. She had spent all that she had to try and receive a healing but instead she grew worse, not better. Her situation was hopeless – the doctors did not know what to do or she would have been healed. Yet, she was healed by Jesus.

Saul hated Christians and believed he was doing God a service to kill them. Yet he became one because he had a personal experience with God.

No-one is a hopeless case in God’s eyes. Every sickness can be healed in Jesus’ Name; every sin can be forgiven; every family can be restored; every burden lifted.

Bring your hopeless case to God. Let Him do a miracle.lame-man-healed
