Matthew 11:2-6 - When John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent
two of his disciples. Say to Him, are you the Coming One, or do we wait for
another ? And Jesus answered, saying to them, "Go and tell John what you
hear and see: the blind receive their sight, and the crippled walk, and the
deaf hear; the dead are raised, and the poor have the Gospel preached to
them. And blessed is he who is not offended in Me.

Part 1 ~ Believe God

John sent disciples to Jesus to ask if He was the Christ, or if they should
look for another. Jesus simply pointed to the works which He did --works
that were proof He was anointed of God to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom
and bring in the new age of divine grace. He preached the Gospel to the
poor, healed the sick and diseased, caused the crippled to walk, the deaf
to hear, and raised the dead (Matthew 11:4-5). Later, Jesus said, "If
anyone believes on Me, these works which I do shall they do also, and even
greater works" (John 14:12). Today, we are faced with the same question
that Jesus asked two blind men, "Do you believe that I am able to do this."
I pray your answer will be the same as theirs, "Yes, Lord" (Matthew 9:28).

Satan will do everything in his power to oppose the work of the Gospel, but
we can be strong in the strength of the Lord and the power of His might
(Ephesians 6:10). If you want to grow and mature in the things Christ Jesus
has purposed us to do, then you must actively participate with the Holy
Spirit --whether it is joy and love, or miracles and gifts of healing. As
you participate you will be taught of God and grow stronger in every
dimension of the things of the Spirit as you are filled with all the
fulness of God (Ephesians 3:19-20).

Be careful you do not fall after the same manner of unbelief that so many
have been taken out by (Hebrews 3:12, 19, 4:1-2). Those who have had bad
experiences such as sickness, disease, failure, and other opposing and even
destructive events stopped believing and changed the Word of God to
accommodate their experiences. Be valiant, be strong, and having done all,
to stand --believe and proclaim those things God has spoken no matter what
you see or hear!!! (Ephesians 6:13; Psalm 119:89; Romans 4:16-21; 2
Corinthians 1:20)
