Jesus Heals A Paralytic
"A few days later, when Jesus again entered
Capernaum, the people heard that He had
So many gathered that there was no room left,
not even outside the door, and He preached the
word to them.
Some men came, bringing to Him a paralytic,
carried by four of them.
Since they could not get him to Jesus because
of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof
above Jesus and after digging through it, lowered
the mat the paralytic man was lying on.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic,
'Son, your sins are forgiven."
Now some teachers of the law were sitting there,
thinking to themselves, 'Why does this fellow talk
like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins
but God alone?'
Immediately Jesus knew in His Spirit that this was
what they were thinking in their hearts, and He said
to them, 'Why are thinking these things? Which is
easier: to say to the paralytic, "your sins are forgiven,"
or to say, "Get up, take your mat and walk?" But that
you may know that the Son of Man has authority on
earth to forgive sins...' He said to the paralytic, 'I tell
you, get up, take your mat and go home.'

'We have never seen anything like this."
Mark 2: 1-12
Sometimes God uses sickness and illness to bring to the attention of the diseased person his state of living in sin. Sometimes, the callousness of the sinful heart of man deadens the still small voice of his conscience and God uses sickness to remind him to repent and be healed both in body and spirit. Total cleansing of our body, mind and soul through honest repentance and going back to the loving arms of God opens the body for the the pouring of the healing Spirit of God. Thus the sinful and diseased person is restored back to health both physically and spiritually.
