Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:8


10:8 Cast out devils - It is a great relief to the spirits of an infidel, sinking under a dread, that possibly the Gospel may be true, to find it observed by a learned brother, that the diseases therein ascribed to the operation of the devil have the very same symptoms with the natural diseases of lunacy, epilepsy, or convulsions; whence he readily and very willingly concludes, that the devil had no hand in them. But it were well to stop and consider a little. Suppose God should suffer an evil spirit to usurp the same power over a man's body, as the man himself has naturally; and suppose him actually to exercise that power; could we conclude the devil had no hand therein, because his body was bent in the very same manner wherein the man himself might have bent it naturally? And suppose God gives an evil spirit a greater power, to effect immediately the organ of the nerves in the brain, by irritating them to produce violent motions, or so relaxing them that they can produce little or no motion; still the symptoms will be those of over tense nerves, as in madness, epilepsies, convulsions; or of relaxed nerves, as in paralytic cases. But could we conclude thence that the devil had no hand in them? Will any man affirm that God cannot or will not, on any occasion whatever, give such a power to an evil spirit? Or that effects, the like of which may be produced by natural causes, cannot possibly be produced by preternatural? If this be possible, then he who affirms it was so, in any particular case, cannot be justly charged with falsehood, merely for affirming the reality of a possible thing. Yet in this manner are the evangelists treated by those unhappy men, who above all things dread the truth of the Gospel, because, if it is true, they are of all men the most miserable. Freely ye have received - All things; in particular the power of working miracles; freely give - Exert that power wherever you come. #Mark 6:7|; Luke 9:2.

Discussion for Matthew 10:8

  • healing the sick raising the dead and cleansing the lepers and casting out devils are signs of those who believe in the name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST and is evidence that the kingdom of GOD is at hand and that we are under a new covenant of the blood of JESEUS Christ our Lord and redeemer to whom be praise and glory and honor forever amen.
  • Bro. Davis for verse 8
    Matthew 10:8, We are called to serve the Lord our Great Physician and Redeemer. He has given us his free gift of his spirit Holy Ghost to be healed ourselves and be redeemed through his blood. He calls ALL his disciples to go in the spirit and heal the sick and has given us the same spirit that was in him to cast out devils, raise the dead, heal all manner of diseases in his name Jesus. We can not do it in our own flesh or through our own will, it is ONLY through the Holy Ghost he has freely given us this ability and power to heal and to help others! I know because I am one of his. He has not redeemed us and given us his spirit to just sit on it, but rather we are commissioned to go and use the spirit to reach others and to heal others using that spirit Holy Ghost . Amen
  • John allen jester Jr. for verse 8
    I 'm living proof he is still with us I died over 7 days and now 6 years later here I still am praise the LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
  • Brianna for verse 8
    All the things Jesus did for other such as healing them , and he did It FOR FREE! Jehovah supplies everyone a free supply of Holy Spirit, he never charged anyone money. Jesus being the perfect reflection of his father! Didn 't charge anyone either. It is very puzzling to me, how being a pastor or priest has become a Job, literally! Members of the Church PAY THE PASTOR to tell them what they want to hear.
  • Anonymous for verse 8
    All scripture are inspiration of the Holy Ghost.
    We should obey the comandement of God to pray for the sick .
  • Siribour for verse 8
