Jesus Heals Many February 2, 2018

Here are my thoughts on Matthew 8:14-17.

Summary: In this passage, Jesus fulfills a prophecy in Isaiah 53:4 by performing the following miracles:

  • curing Peter’s mother-in-law of a fever
  • healing many who are controlled by demons.

Thoughts: Here, we see that Jesus exercises His sovereignty over the spiritual world. As a believer in a First World country, I cannot recall an encounter with demonic forces. Thus, I – and, I suspect, others in similar circumstances – readily ignore the reality of the spiritual world. We observe the physical world and assume that it constitutes the totality of reality. Yet this passage should disabuse us of that notion. Perhaps we need to respond to this passage by humbling ourselves and asking God to equip us with the requisite tools for battling the influence of demonic forces. If He ever allows them to assault us – according to His good plans for us – we want to emerge victorious over them.
