Get to know Jesus

Jesus loves your child more than you can love your child

In John 4:54 it was stated that this was Jesus’ second miracle. If the healing of the official’s son is recorded as Jesus’ second miracle, then the official’s son was the first person whom Jesus healed when He began His ministry (because the first miracle was the turning of water to wine).

There are many saddness in this fallen world and one of the most painful thing is experienced by parents who had to suffer the pain of seeing their child pass on. As parents, we would rather be the one to suffer than to see our children suffer. God knows this. Of all the people that Jesus healed, the first person He healed was someone’s son, at the plea of the father.

This tells us that God loves us and He will bless our children and their descendants (Isaiah 59:21).Do not worry nor be fearful of the wellbeing of your children. Remember that our LORD Jesus loves our children more than we can love them.

What is high in God's agenda?

The first person whom Jesus sought to minister to was the samaritan woman at the well who had five husband. She must had been a woman who had suffered much pain, a broken-hearted woman. The first person our LORD Jesus healed was someone’s son. 

All these early works of Jesus did not happen by coincidence. Rather, it tells us that these are extremely high in God’s agenda. It gives us a glimse into our Heavenly Father’s heart.  Jesus is a God of unfailing love, a merciful God, full of compassion.

God will heal your loved ones

Because God’s will is to heal your child, your loved ones. And that is extremely high in His agenda. Believe without doubt that it is our God’s will for your child to be protected and healed, to have fullness of life. If your child is ill or if you are praying for a loved one who is sick, know for sure that it is our Heavenly Father’s will to heal. Friends, whoever you are reading this, I believe it is not a coincidence. I believe our Daddy God wants you to know that He is healing your child, your loved ones, your family, whoever you are praying for. I pray that even right now, God’s healing has begun.

Healing will happen regardless of your sins
Note that Jesus never take into account whether that Official had sins or not. Hence, healing will take place regardless of whether you are living a sinful life or have done things that were wrong in the past.
My friend, know that when Jesus sufferred and died on the cross for us, the work is finished. When we receive Jesus as Saviour for our life, we are forever the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. You may think that you have done something wrong and that God may be angry, like in the case of King David when God took his son. No, my friend, Jesus has paid the price for our sins. King David lived in the old covenant time, under the law. We are now in the new covenant where Jesus has paid for our sins. We are forever righteous in God because of Jesus. You have unmerited favour because of Jesus. No sins, no generation curses can undo this. Whoever you pray for — yourself, your child or someone else or someone else’s child who is sickwill be healed! Your prayer is the prayer of a righteous person. Because as a believer, you are forever righteous through Christ Jesus’ finished work. The wrong thing you did has been paid for by the blood of Jesus. Just pray, believing:

15And the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick. The Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. –James 5:15



All you need to do is to believe, to unlock the power of God's healing.

Believe, my friend, just like the Official in this event, he believed.

All that you need to do is to believe, to receive this healing. The Official believe, and his son was healed. Believe that it is God’s will to heal you and your family. Believe that Jesus came and had paid the price for your sins. Believe that Jesus wants to save and to heal you, your children, your loved ones. Believe that when you receive Jesus as your Saviour, your sins in the past, present and even in the future are all forgiven.

You are forever righteous through Christ finished work. Hence, healing will take place when you believe. Nothing can stop God’s will for you. My friend, whoever you are reading this, I pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.

19 And you will know God’s great power. It can’t be compared with anything else. His power works for us who believe. It is the same mighty strength 20 God showed. He showed this when he raised Christ from the dead. –Ephesians 1:19 (NIRV)

If you note the second verse of the healing of the Official’s son story–John 4:44– it was mentioned that a prophet is not honored in his home country.

44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) –John 4:44

This same verse is mentioned in Mark 6:4-6:

Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. –Mark6:4-5 (NIV)

When people do not believe, the miracles cannot happen.

Claim the Promise of Healing

God’s words will not return to Him void until it accomplish its objective:

so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. — Isaiah 55:11  (NIV)

In Isaiah the promise of healing is given:

5But He was pierced for our transgressions,He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. –Isaiah 53:5 Berean Study Bible

Are you wondering….

How do I become a believer?

We are justified by faith in Jesus. (Romans 5:1). Therefore, we only need to believe and say a prayer as follows:

“Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins. I believe you are the Son of God and that You love me and desire to bless me with the abundant life and eternal life that You promise. I believe and receive You as my Lord and Saviour. In Jesus name I pray, amen.”
