Jesus Came To Defeat Death...Even Yours!
Mark 7:36-37 New International Version
36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Wouldn’t you want someone to heal your problems with a simple word or touch? I would travel for miles to see someone who could do that. No more need for surgeries, medicine, masks or vaccines! Just go talk to the magic “medicine man.” The problem was that Jesus came to die on a cross and that is not exciting, wonderful or amazing. It is shocking, horrifying, and even repulsive. Don’t believe me? Try watching the movie, The Passion of the Christ. It is not fun! A healing, as wonderful as they are, only prolongs the inevitable. Jesus came to defeat death, once and for all. Even yours!
