When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sickMatthew 8:16
The Children of Israel knew that God is their healer. They looked unto Him for their healing and their deliverance. And whenever God was to deliver them and to heal them, He sent His word, most times through the mouth of a prophet. When He did this, they are healed and delivered from their destruction no matter the cause and the gravity of the trouble.
One more thing, they knew that God has His time of showing up. When they seek God in that time, God will definitely show up to heal and deliver them. That is why they admonish themselves to seek the Lord in the time when He may be found (Isaiah 55:6). That time is called the acceptable time. They longed and waited for this time to cry out to God. Thus David said “But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation”(Psalms 69:13) Even God also testifies that “In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee:” (Isaiah 49:8).
When Jesus came, He declared that time. He did set the time rolling. He said “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me… To preach the acceptable year of the Lord… This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” (Luke 4:18,19&21). Immediately thereafter, the people bore witness that gracious words began to roll from His mouth (vs22). Then ” when the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits WITH HIS WORD, and healed all that were sick” (Matt 8:16).
Friends, Now is that acceptable time. The Holy Spirit testifies that “… now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2Cor 6:2). Your healing is now. Your deliverance is now, and the “God… Hath in these last days spoken [his words of healing and deliverance] unto us by his Son [Jesus]” . (Heb 1:1&2). That same words that healed and delivered every one that blessed evening has come to you now. Rise and be healed. You are healed, you are delivered. Simply believe, say those words with faith and your healing will manifest.
