TOUCHING JESUS
By: Ferd Sebastian

Touching Jesus, that is what we all would like to do. Because if I could but touch Him ...

Mark 5:28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

Just to touch Jesus was to be made whole. That was the woman with the issue of Blood. However she was not a special case. Look here in Matthew.

Matt 14:35-36
35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;
36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

As many as touched Him ... Were made whole ... Oh, but if we could touch Jesus ...

Well, I am here to tell you that we can. Let us see who Jesus is ...

John 1:1-4
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Now look at this ...

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Well who is John talking about here? It is Jesus. Jesus is the Word. And Jesus was with God ... And Jesus was God. So Jesus is one of the members of the triune God head. He is the Father in Creation. The Son in Redemption. The Holy Spirit in Manifestation.

So first of all when you are holding your Bible, you are holding the Word. Which is Jesus. Have you not ever wondered what is so Holy about the Bible? A book of paper with black ink. What is so special. It is Jesus ... The Word of God.

Secondly, where are you standing with Jesus? Are you born again? If so here is where Jesus is and where you are.

Eph. 2:6, God has raised us up together with Christ.
In God's eyes you are seated with Jesus at His right hand. You are in Christ, just as Christ is in you here on earth.

1Cor. 6:17, He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
You and Jesus could be no closer together. Jesus is not just with you, you are part of each other.

1Cor. 12:27, Now you are the body of Christ.
What does that mean? We Christians here on earth are the body of Christ. He is the Head. The head does the thinking and the leading, and the body carries out the work. So when Jesus wants something done here on earth it is up to us to do it. How could we? Easy, Jesus's Spirit is joined to ours. He is transferring His authority and power to us to do His will. But we must acknowledge Jesus and except this gift to ever have this power.

Matt. 28:20, "And I am always with you."
Jesus is telling you that He is always with you. You want to touch Him????? Well touch yourself and say thank you Jesus. Thank you for loving me so much that you died to save me and then you joined your Spirit to mine To keep me and protect me.

But you say well He is not doing a good job, as I am sick. Well God has given you free will ... Have you ever acted like Jesus was in you? Do you walk and talk like Jesus? He is not going to treat you like a puppet. No you are going to have to believe His words. You are going to have to welcome Him into your life. Acknowledge His presence and work with Him. Then you are going to start seeing a change. Thank you Jesus

If you believe His Word. Then you are just a whisper away. Look what Jesus says about you.

John 20:29 Jesus said unto him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Well are you Blessed????? If you believe. Yes you are ... Look what God has made you.

1 JOHN 3:1 HOW GREAT IS THE LOVE THE FATHER HAS LAVISHED ON US, THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED CHILDREN OF GOD! AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE!

So do not just touch Jesus ... Live with Jesus. Eat, sleep, and walk with Jesus. Follow His commandments. Collect His promises ... And live in the shelter of the Most High, resting in the shadow of the Almighty. I pray this for you, in the precious name of Jesus ... Thank you Father, your loving son, Ferd
