GOD's POWER is STAGGERING

 


John 5:2-4

King James Version

2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, 

which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, 

having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, 

of blind, halt, withered, 

waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down 

at a certain season into the pool, 

and troubled the water: 

whosoever then first 

after the troubling of the water stepped in 

was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.


How little we know of the LORD.

And how great we think man is.

Thinking he has the keys to healing.

Or great intelligence.

When GOD's power is STAGGERING.

The extent, and breadth, of which we have no idea.

But the Bible tells all.

Testifying of such power.

Let the LORD JESUS humble us all.

For GOD gave Him ALL that power.

Matthew 28:18

King James Version

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, 

saying, 

All power is given unto me 

in heaven and in earth.


Scripture reveals GOD's power over life, and death.

Disease, and healing.

Man, and medicine.

Genesis 18:9-15

King James Version

9 And they said unto him, 

Where is Sarah thy wife? 

And he said, 

Behold, in the tent.

10 And he said, 

I will certainly return unto thee 

according to the time of life; 

and, lo, 

Sarah thy wife shall have a son. 

And Sarah heard it in the tent door, 

which was behind him.

11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old 

and well stricken in age; 

and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, 

After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, 

my lord being old also?

13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, 

Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, 

Shall I of a surety bear a child, 

which am old?

14 Is any thing too hard for the Lord? 

At the time appointed I will return unto thee, 

according to the time of life, 

and Sarah shall have a son.

15 Then Sarah denied, saying, 

I laughed not; 

for she was afraid. 

And he said, 

Nay; but thou didst laugh.


Genesis 20:17-18

King James Version

17 So Abraham prayed unto God: 

and God healed Abimelech, 

and his wife, 

and his maidservants; 

and they bare children.

18 For the Lord had fast closed up 

all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, 

because of Sarah Abraham's wife.


Genesis 21:1-3

King James Version

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, 

and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken.

2 For Sarah conceived, 

and bare Abraham a son in his old age, 

at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

3 And Abraham called the name of his son 

that was born unto him, 

whom Sarah bare to him, 

Isaac.


Genesis 29:31-35

King James Version

31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, 

he opened her womb

but Rachel was barren.

32 And Leah conceived, 

and bare a son, 

and she called his name Reuben: 

for she said, 

Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; 

now therefore my husband will love me.

33 And she conceived again, 

and bare a son; 

and said, 

Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, 

he hath therefore given me this son also: 

and she called his name Simeon.

34 And she conceived again, 

and bare a son; 

and said, 

Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, 

because I have born him three sons: 

therefore was his name called Levi.

35 And she conceived again, 

and bare a son: 

and she said, 

Now will I praise the Lord: 

therefore she called his name Judah; 

and left bearing.


Exodus 15:26

King James Version

26 And said, 

If thou wilt diligently hearken 

to the voice of the Lord thy God, 

and wilt do that which is right in his sight, 

and wilt give ear to his commandments, 

and keep all his statutes, 

I will put none of these diseases upon thee, 

which I have brought upon the Egyptians: 

for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, 

and will not hearken unto me; 

I will bring seven times more plagues upon you 

according to your sins.


Numbers 14:18

King James Version

18 The Lord is longsuffering, 

and of great mercy, 

forgiving iniquity and transgression, 

and by no means clearing the guilty, 

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children 

unto the third and fourth generation.


Deuteronomy 7:15

King James Version

15 And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, 

and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, 

which thou knowest, upon thee; 

but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.


Deuteronomy 28:27-29

King James Version

27 The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, 

and with the emerods, 

and with the scab, 

and with the itch, 

whereof thou canst not be healed.

28 The Lord shall smite thee with madness, 

and blindness, 

and astonishment of heart:

29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, 

as the blind gropeth in darkness, 

and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: 

and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, 

and no man shall save thee.


Deuteronomy 28:58-62

King James Version

58 If thou wilt not observe 

to do all the words of this law 

that are written in this book, 

that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, 

The Lord Thy God;

59 Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, 

and the plagues of thy seed, 

even great plagues, 

and of long continuance, 

and sore sicknesses, 

and of long continuance.

60 Moreover he will bring upon thee 

all the diseases of Egypt, 

which thou wast afraid of; 

and they shall cleave unto thee.

61 Also every sickness, 

and every plague, 

which is not written in the book of this law, 

them will the Lord bring upon thee, 

until thou be destroyed.

62 And ye shall be left few in number, 

whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; 

because thou wouldest not obey 

the voice of the Lord thy God.


Deuteronomy 30:15

King James Version

I have set before thee this day 

life and good, 

and death and evil;


Deuteronomy 30:19-20

King James Version

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, 

that I have set before you life and death, 

blessing and cursing: 

therefore choose life, 

that both thou and thy seed may live:

20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, 

and that thou mayest obey his voice, 

and that thou mayest cleave unto him: 

for he is thy life, 

and the length of thy days: 

that thou mayest dwell in the land 

which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, 

to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, 

to give them.


2 Samuel 12:13-15

King James Version

13 And David said unto Nathan, 

I have sinned against the Lord. 

And Nathan said unto David, 

The Lord also hath put away thy sin; 

thou shalt not die.

14 Howbeit, 

because by this deed thou hast given great occasion 

to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, 

the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

15 And Nathan departed unto his house. 

And the Lord struck the child 

that Uriah's wife bare unto David, 

and it was very sick.


2 Samuel 12:18

King James Version

18 And it came to pass on the seventh day, 

that the child died. 

And the servants of David feared to tell him 

that the child was dead

for they said, 

Behold, while the child was yet alive, 

we spake unto him, 

and he would not hearken unto our voice: 

how will he then vex himself, 

if we tell him that the child is dead?


2 Kings 20:4-7

King James Version

4 And it came to pass, 

afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, 

that the word of the Lord came to him, 

saying,

5 Turn again, 

and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, 

Thus saith the Lord, 

the God of David thy father, 

I have heard thy prayer, 

I have seen thy tears: 

behold, 

I will heal thee: 

on the third day thou shalt go up 

unto the house of the Lord.

6 And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; 

and I will deliver thee and this city 

out of the hand of the king of Assyria; 

and I will defend this city for mine own sake, 

and for my servant David's sake.

7 And Isaiah said, 

Take a lump of figs. 

And they took and laid it on the boil, 

and he recovered.


2 Chronicles 21:12-20

King James Version

12 And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, 

saying, 

Thus saith the Lord God of David thy father, 

Because thou hast not walked 

in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, 

nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah,

13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, 

and hast made Judah 

and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, 

like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, 

and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, 

which were better than thyself:

14 Behold, 

with a great plague will the Lord smite thy people, 

and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:

15 And thou shalt have great sickness 

by disease of thy bowels, 

until thy bowels fall out 

by reason of the sickness day by day.

16 Moreover the Lord stirred up against Jehoram 

the spirit of the Philistines, 

and of the Arabians, 

that were near the Ethiopians:

17 And they came up into Judah, 

and brake into it, 

and carried away all the substance 

that was found in the king's house, 

and his sons also, and his wives; 

so that there was never a son left him, 

save Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.

18 And after all this the Lord smote him in his bowels 

with an incurable disease.

19 And it came to pass, 

that in process of time, 

after the end of two years, 

his bowels fell out by reason of his sickness: 

so he died of sore diseases. 

And his people made no burning for him, 

like the burning of his fathers.

20 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, 

and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, 

and departed without being desired. 

Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, 

but not in the sepulchres of the kings.


Job 10:8-14

King James Version

8 Thine hands have made me 

and fashioned me together round about; 

yet thou dost destroy me.

9 Remember, I beseech thee, 

that thou hast made me as the clay; 

and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

10 Hast thou not poured me out as milk, 

and curdled me like cheese?

11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, 

and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, 

and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: 

I know that this is with thee.

14 If I sin, 

then thou markest me, 

and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.


Job 31:14-15

King James Version

14 What then shall I do when God riseth up? 

and when he visiteth, 

what shall I answer him?

15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? 

and did not one fashion us in the womb?


Psalm 1

King James Version

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not 

in the counsel of the ungodly, 

nor standeth in the way of sinners, 

nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 

and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 

his leaf also shall not wither; 

and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: 

but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, 

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: 

but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Psalm 103:1-5

King James Version

103 Bless the Lord, 

O my soul: 

and all that is within me, 

bless his holy name.

2 Bless the Lord, 

O my soul, 

and forget not all his benefits:

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; 

who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; 

who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; 

so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.


Psalm 107:19-21

King James Version

19 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, 

and he saveth them out of their distresses.

20 He sent his word, 

and healed them, 

and delivered them from their destructions.

21 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, 

and for his wonderful works to the children of men!


Psalm 139:13-17

King James Version

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: 

thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

14 I will praise thee; 

for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: 

marvellous are thy works; 

and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, 

when I was made in secret, 

and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, 

yet being unperfect; 

and in thy book all my members were written, 

which in continuance were fashioned, 

when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, 

O God! 

how great is the sum of them!


Isaiah 44:2

King James Version

2 Thus saith the Lord that made thee, 

and formed thee from the womb, 

which will help thee; 

Fear not, 

O Jacob, my servant; 

and thou, Jesurun, 

whom I have chosen.


Isaiah 53:4-6

King James Version

4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, 

and carried our sorrows: 

yet we did esteem him stricken, 

smitten of God, 

and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, 

he was bruised for our iniquities: 

the chastisement of our peace was upon him; 

and with his stripes we are healed.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; 

we have turned every one to his own way; 

and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.


Jeremiah 30:15-17

King James Version

15 Why criest thou for thine affliction? 

thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: 

because thy sins were increased, 

I have done these things unto thee.

16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; 

and all thine adversaries, 

every one of them, 

shall go into captivity; 

and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, 

and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.

17 For I will restore health unto thee, 

and I will heal thee of thy wounds, 

saith the Lord; 

because they called thee an Outcast, 

saying, 

This is Zion, 

whom no man seeketh after.


Habakkuk 2:14

King James Version

14 For the earth shall be filled 

with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, 

as the waters cover the sea.

6 For I am the Lord, 

I change not; 

therefore ye sons of Jacob 

are not consumed.

teaching in their synagogues, 

and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,

and they brought unto him all sick people 

that were taken with divers diseases and torments, 

and those which were possessed with devils, 

and those which were lunatick, 

and those that had the palsy; 

and he healed them.

King James Version

there came to him a certain man, 

kneeling down to him, 

and saying,

15 Lord, 

have mercy on my son: 

for he is lunatick, 

and sore vexed: 

for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, 

and oft into the water.

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, 

and they could not cure him.

17 Then Jesus answered and said, 

O faithless and perverse generation, 

how long shall I be with you? 

how long shall I suffer you? 

bring him hither to me.

18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; 

and he departed out of him: 

and the child was cured from that very hour.


Matthew 17:19-21

King James Version

19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, 

and said, 

Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Jesus said unto them, 

Because of your unbelief: 

for verily I say unto you, 

If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, 

ye shall say unto this mountain, 

Remove hence to yonder place; 

and it shall remove; 

and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out 

but by prayer and fasting.

King James Version

3 And they come unto him, 

bringing one sick of the palsy, 

which was borne of four.

4 And when they could not come nigh unto him 

for the press, 

they uncovered the roof where he was: 

and when they had broken it up, 

they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

5 When Jesus saw their faith, 

he said unto the sick of the palsy, 

Son, 

thy sins be forgiven thee.


Mark 5:25-34

King James Version

25 And a certain woman, 

which had an issue of blood twelve years,

26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, 

and had spent all that she had, 

and was nothing bettered, 

but rather grew worse,

27 When she had heard of Jesus, 

came in the press behind, 

and touched his garment.

28 For she said, 

If I may touch but his clothes, 

I shall be whole.

29 And straightway the fountain of her blood 

was dried up; 

and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

30 And Jesus, 

immediately knowing in himself that virtue 

had gone out of him, 

turned him about in the press, 

and said, 

Who touched my clothes?

31 And his disciples said unto him, 

Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, 

and sayest thou, 

Who touched me?

32 And he looked round about to see her 

that had done this thing.

33 But the woman fearing and trembling, 

knowing what was done in her, 

came and fell down before him, 

and told him all the truth.

34 And he said unto her, 

Daughter, 

thy faith hath made thee whole; 

go in peace, 

and be whole of thy plague.

54 And when they were come out of the ship, 

straightway they knew him,

55 And ran through that whole region round about, 

and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, 

where they heard he was.

56 And whithersoever he entered, 

into villages, or cities, or country, 

they laid the sick in the streets, 

and besought him that they might touch

 if it were but the border of his garment: 

and as many as touched him were made whole.


Mark 16:14-19

King James Version

14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven 

as they sat at meat, 

and upbraided them with their unbelief 

and hardness of heart, 

because they believed not them 

which had seen him after he was risen.

15 And he said unto them, 

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In my name shall they cast out devils; 

they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; 

and if they drink any deadly thing, 

it shall not hurt them; 

they shall lay hands on the sick, 

and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, 

he was received up into heaven, 

and sat on the right hand of God.

I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,

but rather rejoice, 

because your names are written in heaven.

on the sabbath.

11 And, 

behold, 

there was a woman 

which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, 

and was bowed together, 

and could in no wise lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, 

he called her to him, 

and said unto her, 

Woman, 

thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hands on her: 

and immediately she was made straight, 

and glorified God.


John 5:5-9

King James Version

5 And a certain man was there, 

which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, 

and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, 

he saith unto him, 

Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, 

Sir, 

I have no man, 

when the water is troubled, 

to put me into the pool: 

but while I am coming, 

another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, 

Rise, 

take up thy bed, 

and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, 

and took up his bed, 

and walked: 

and on the same day was the sabbath.


John 5:14-16

King James Version

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, 

and said unto him, 

Behold, thou art made whole:

sin no more, 

lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed, 

and told the Jews that it was Jesus, 

which had made him whole.

16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus,

and sought to slay him, 

because he had done these things on the sabbath day.


John 5:20-24

King James Version

20 For the Father loveth the Son, 

and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: 

and he will shew him greater works than these, 

that ye may marvel.

21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, 

and quickeneth them; 

even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

22 For the Father judgeth no man, 

but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

23 That all men should honour the Son, 

even as they honour the Father. 

He that honoureth not the Son 

honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

He that heareth my word, 

and believeth on him that sent me, 

hath everlasting life, 

and shall not come into condemnation; 

but is passed from death unto life.


John 9:1-3

King James Version

9 And as Jesus passed by, 

he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, 

saying, 

Master, 

who did sin, 

this man, 

or his parents, 

that he was born blind?

3 Jesus answered, 

Neither hath this man sinned, 

nor his parents: 

but that the works of God 

should be made manifest in him.

arrayed in royal apparel, 

sat upon his throne, 

and made an oration unto them.

It is the voice of a god, 

and not of a man.

because he gave not God the glory: 

and he was eaten of worms, 

and gave up the ghost.

24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given 

to every man to profit withal.

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; 

to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; 

to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

King James Version

15 But when it pleased God,

that I might preach him among the heathen; 

immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

let him call for the elders of the church; 

and let them pray over him, 

anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, 

and the Lord shall raise him up; 

and if he have committed sins, 

they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another, 

and pray one for another, 

that ye may be healed. 

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man 

availeth much.


Revelation 1:18

King James Version

18 I am he that liveth, 

and was dead; 

and, 

behold, 

I am alive for evermore, 

Amen; 

and have the keys of hell and of death.


How greatly we dishonor the LORD JESUS.

When in Him, is our joy, and salvation.

Our health, and healing.

Know this:

John 21:25

King James Version

25 And there are also many other things 

which Jesus did, 

the which, 

if they should be written every one, 

I suppose that even the world itself 

could not contain the books that should be written. 

Amen.
