Matthew 8:16 Now when it was evening, they brought to him many who were possessed, and he cast out the spirits with a word, and cured all who were sick.
Christ's ministry is just beginning according to Matthew. He has not done much up to this point. He gave a sermon on the mountain where he taught things that were new. He spoke of principles and ideas that people had not heard before. He told of existing laws that were expanded so that people would have a better understanding of their purpose and meaning. He finished his sermon and he rested at Peter's home that day. And the word spread.
In that day and time word of mouth was the medium of providing information. The information about Christ spread like wild fire.Christ became popular because of his miracles. You could compare his news today to the news of a bombing. You could compare his news today to the news of a devastating tornado. You could compare his news today to the news of a international plane crash. You could compare his news today to the news of any event that captures the interest of the people.
He would get millions of hits on Youtube. His news would be the trending news on Yahoo and Twitter. His news would be explosive because everyone would want to hear of it, everyone would want to see it, everyone would want to talk about him. The news media would want to publish it because they will make a fortune in selling it. Ratings would rise to levels not seen before. Advertisers would want to have their ads placed during the time slot when his news is broadcast. All would hear of the miracles that he was performing and want to know where he was, where he was going, where he will be next. Promoters would want to have him under contract. Event planners would want to plan events for him to speak before. Heads of state would want to meet him and to know of his work. This would be our way of following Christ today. This would be our response and how we would hear of him.
If Christ did these miracles today, would he be #1 on YAHOO ANSWER?
Answer on Matt 8:16 He cast out spirits...and cured all. If Christ did these miracles today, would he be #1 on YA?
Just cause YOU don't BELIEVE - HE is doing anything does NOT mean HE isn't...even if HE did these things PEOPLE would only follow HIM to get something out of the DEAL ( and NOT truly LOVE HIM. PEOPLE would STILL doubt HIM and NOT BELIEVE....WHY would it be any DIFFERENT now? PEOPLE still didn't BELIEVE and they SAW things for THEMSELVES...
