Question? Mister, I have always wondered “Why did Jesus tell those he healed not to tell anybody about it”?
In Matthew 8:1-4 we have Jesus tell a person that he healed to tell nobody about being healed.
(1) When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. (2) And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. (3) And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. (4) And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
I believe it was for the reason as to NOT to draw attention to himself BECAUSE his primary purpose for coming to this earth was to be THE PAYMENT for the “Sins Of The World”.
1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Unlike the FAKE Faith Healers who through the sin of pride wants the world to take notice of them and that is quite a difference in contrast in comparison to the Lord Jesus.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
