    Luke 18 42 Does this teach salvation or healing of blindness only? Differences between KJV & NKJV.
  • Does God Still Heal People Today - in Reply on Luke 18
    This is the Commentary, from this website:

    35-43 This poor blind man sat by the wayside, begging. He was not only blind, but poor, the fitter emblem of the world of mankind which Christ came to heal and save. The prayer of faith, guided by Christ's encouraging promises, and grounded on them, shall not be in vain. The grace of Christ ought to be thankfully acknowledged, to the glory of God. It is for the glory of God if we follow Jesus, as those will do whose eyes are opened. We must praise God for his mercies to others, as well as for mercies to ourselves. Would we rightly understand these things, we must come to Christ, like the blind man, earnestly beseeching him to open our eyes, and to show us clearly the excellence of his precepts, and the value of his salvation.

    Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    In this scripture a blind man persisted and was cured of blindness by Jesus.

    In the Harmony of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John): people were healed or cured of all manners of sickness, disease, blind, deaf, mute, demon possessed, sexual sins, etc.

    He had meetings and fed thousands of people and the Bible says He healed the whole crowd. The crowds' Faith level was so strong, that they all got healed. Wow!

    All we have to do is reach out and touch Jesus, with our Faith, in Jesus's ability to heal and deliver. Even now. In feeding on scripture: taking it into ourselves (spirit), our faith is going rise up to be able to receive what we ask for.

    If we ask according to the known Will of God, we will be healed. Confess confidence instead of doubt and insecurity.

    If a little "voice" says: you don't have enough faith, you drink beer or smoke (accuses)....that's Satan trying to wreck your Faith. "You don't read the Bible", any kind of accusation. Step over that and walk towards the Lord with your FAITH in Jesus's willingness to save, baptize with The Holy Spirit, and heal.

    Or let your Church pray corporately for you.

    Receive it.

    Luke Chapter 18 is regarding wealth and it can effect people's faith in God. Also, the faith as a christian should not be based on money or being wealthy. Jesus,told a wealthy man to distribute his wealth to poor people. At first the wealthy man was reluctant, but was had a sense of satisfaction from seeing how is wealth had helped poor people to live better lifes.

    God's word always gives me healing and comfort. I'd be willing to save $1000 in A savings account and buy as many Bibles as I could with that amount of money so that more people could have God's word in their homes and in their cars and hospitals and dental offices.

    Verse 42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath SAVED thee.--How many did Jesus save while on earth (not sure) but many. -- Matthew 9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

    John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. -17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

    The New heaven and the New Earth is simply a new heart and a new spirit as God promised its mankinds old adamic nature that needs to be destroyed we are of the earth earthy its our old satanic nature that needs to be destroyed there is absolutly nothin wrong with this beautiful earth.Its mankinds demonic nature that needs to be destroyed with his baptism of fire i.e. his double edged sword is the WORD. Thats y he wants to sow his seed in our hearts that Christ might be formed in us, as the new heaven and the new earth shall remain so shall your seed and name remain Isaiah.Behold i make all things new which is our new heart and new spirit vii the seed of the sower planted in our hearts. gbu
  • Obbie Beal on Luke 18
    1-43, JESUS stress how important it is to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. Yes JESUS heal where applicable above also in 2020, BUT note how JESUS mind stay on HIS primary duty which is to provide SALVATION for us. JESUS know John 3:16-21 very well.
  • Victor on Luke 18
    Jesus has the opportunity to tell this man; Verse 18th-22nd First let me die and after that., just believe on my blood and you shall be Saved. Jesus is not your Savior! The God of Israel is yoiur savior. Read St John5:30 1st Sentence;SJ 14:10 and SJ 5:43 Read
  • Job - in Reply on Luke 18
    There is no other name under Heaven which a man is to be saved. And that man is Jesus. Jesus said I and the Father(God) are one.
  • Kenny F - in Reply on Luke 18
    Let's not leave out the fact Jesus bore the sins of all humanity, so when he died and rose from the grave, our sins remained in the grave. In order for Jesus to intercede and redeem us, he had to live the life of man and overcome sin, that through his blood and sacrifice, he is the only one that is able to save us. "I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by me." John 14:6 - This is why we pray to God "In the name of Jesus". I pray you gain understanding, and BELIEVE on him.

    I believe Victor when he says Jesus is not his savior.
  • Lazar Ljubinovic on Luke 18
    Our Saviour Jesus Christ perform a multitude of wonderful miracles for the benefit of mankind during his ministry on this Earth yet he never made a single poor man rich!
  • Charley on Luke 18
    How sad how many pharisees we have today have there own selfrighteous tring to get to god by some other other instead of the only mediator between god and man our lord jesus christ. so many are going to hell without true saving faith in the finished work of the cross. religion or salvation which have you. most have religion not salvation. acts 4-12. praise the lord i deserved hell but he saved me
  • Teri on Luke 18
    i think all these things are to remind us not to think too highly of ourselves. God is in control and we find strength in weakness when we put our trust in Him. He knows our frame..try to be humble and teachable.

    What's a ghost from God?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Luke 18
    Jim What's a ghost from God? A ghost is a spirit. A ghost from God is The Holy Spirit. Sometimes called the Holy Ghost. If you are saved, it the spirit lets you know what is good and what is evil. There is a tree in the garden of Eden called the tree of good and evil, if any ate from it, they would know what is good and what is evil. Same thing as the Holy Ghost.
  • Ghost from God on Luke 18
    The Lord spoke in parables, the unjust judge, the rich man, the pharisee and the publican, because understanding does not come to just anyone, but to those who have ears to hear. I am a Jew, as was Jesus, for salvation is of the Jews. Christians forget that God is severe and merciful, and those who proclaim salvation think like the rich man, who was self satisfied, smug, like televangelists
  • Shane Vandergrift on Luke 18
    Luke 18:22-30 Ironic that Jesus instructs those who trust in what they have to leave all and follow him, and those who have left all to follow him are admoished to not look in the rear veiw mirror and be sorrowful beacause what God has for them ahead is far greater. I guess it proves that follow or not, our human nature is going to be with us till we get our glorified body.

    Man is limited in his power and ability to do things. Jehovah God is almighty and has the power and ability to do the things that men can not do.

  • Truth From the Book on Luke 18

    Romans 13:9 "For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet..." Luke 18:20 "Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness." **The commandment to honor the Sabbath is NOT found in the NT**
  • George on Luke 18
    Need to address Eutychus. I believe it is a perfect book to explain how Jesus knows .But what Jesus meant when ask about saved is dangerously interpreted.the man is being tested by the loss of all and he failed.the main part was ignored.THE FOLLOW ME PART! believe in Jesus become a born again Christian and be saved.The Rich man hadn't looked that far all $$$. One way to heaven the blood of Christ!
  • BSP on Luke 18
    Verse 11~Jesus wanted to help the lowly and disadvantaged ones but the Pharisees were selfish and haughty.
  • Eutychus on Luke 18
    "Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" The eternal question, deserving the best answer. Today, we would quote John 3:16. But Jesus takes another position, seen in all three synopotic gospels. He said, "sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me." List it under, "Ways to be saved", and think about it carefully.
  • Servant of God on Luke 18
    These days are harrowing as inequities mount to a fever pitch, between nations, between religions, between parties, father against sons, morhers against daughters, ect. Jesus tells the young man after he tells him the Way: Why call me good? None is good but God. Within man is a grand conflct between good and evil, and the Master does not walk the earth to speak Truth. PRAY aiways to God!
  • BSP on Luke 18
    In verses 1 through 8 the widow would not give up in asking for justice and this changed the mind of the judge. Imagine how much more Jehovah God will answer our persistent prayers.
