Matthew 12:22-23 Meditation

“Then a man was brought before Jesus who had a demon spirit that made him both blind and unable to speak. Jesus healed him instantly, and he could see and talk again! The crowds went wild with amazement as they witnessed this miracle. And they kept saying to one another, “Could this man be the Messiah?” Matthew 12:22-23 TPT

“Then a man was brought before Jesus”
This man had friends or relatives
Who cared about his plight
Perhaps they had known him
When he had his speech and sight
They heard that Jesus was near
And knew of His reputation
They brought this man to Jesus
In hope of healing restoration

“who had a demon spirit that made him both blind and unable to speak.”
If we could see with Jesus’ eyes
Perhaps we would see
This demonic spirit binding
This man’s eyes and mouth
Was it this man’s sin
That gave the demon this hold?
Or was it a curse?
We are not told.

“Jesus healed him instantly,”
Jesus’ compassion
His forgiveness for sin
And His power to break curses
Were seen in this instant healing
Jesus did not hesitate
To free the man from bondage
For Jesus had a mandate
To set all free from satan’s kingdom

“and he could see and talk again!
Jesus power and authority
Were easily enough to set the man free
To talk and see as humans should
As we are made in the image of God
Healed and restored
The man was free
To see and speak again
Like a child of God should be.

“The crowds went wild with amazement as they witnessed this miracle.”
The crowd was really excited
To witness Jesus’ healing power
And His ability to free us
From demonic powers
For they had seen with their own eyes
God acting through a man
To bring healing and freedom
As only a true Son of God can

“And they kept saying to one another, “Could this man be the Messiah?””
This demonstration of power
Raised Jesus up in their sight
For they had never seen before
Someone weird such might
So it lead them to conclude
That Jesus came from God
And question if He could be
Their awaited saviour and lord.

Jesus miracle working power
Was and is a revelation
Of the kingdom of God
It’s healing and freedom
When we see it at work
It’s most exciting to behold
And point to Jesus as our Saviour
Jesus as Son of God
