Two Healings by Jesus
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Luke 8, 40 – 56:
When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him. And a man name Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus, and begged him to come to his house, because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him. And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, who had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and was unable to be cured by anyone, came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped. Jesus then asked, “Who touched me?” While all were denying it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you.” But Jesus said, “Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me.” When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrive and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.” When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother. All were weeping and mourning for her; when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead. But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!” Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat. Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.
A huge snowstorm from the Eastern USA hit Prince Edward Island this morning about 9:00 a.m. It snowed the whole day and it was windy. The storm was a blizzard with snow flying everywhere and at times I could not see anything outside because of the blowing snow. It started to go down in the evening. It should be over by tomorrow morning. We are supposed to get between 20 and 30 centimeters of snow.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters, you know that I healed many people when I was living on earth. Today the reading gives two healings, a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years and a twelve year old girl who had died. When the father of the girl asked me to go to his house to heal her daughter, I left with him immediately. She was not dead yet. Then as we walked toward the house, a woman came behind me and touched the tassel of my cloak and she was completely healed. I felt some power had gone from Me so I turned and asked who touched Me. After a short time the woman came forward and explained her sickness and that she was now healed. I told her that her faith had saved her and to go in peace.
Then a person came from the girl’s father’s house to announce that the girl was dead. Yet I told them not to be afraid for she will be healed. I arrived at the house and all the people were crying and mourning and I told them that the girl was asleep. They did not believe this. I went to the room with three Apostles and the parents of the girl. I then took the girl’s hand and said, “Child, arise.” She started to breath and got up and I told her parents to give her something to eat. I brought this girl back to life for the parents where great believers.
As you see, My friends, I have all power and I can even bring people back from death. It is out of love for these people that I do these miracles. I have appointed some people who have the power of healing. They use My power to heal the sick. My brother Melvin has this power and he has healed hundreds and hundreds of people from all kinds of sicknesses. He received this gift in Africa and he is still using it today. I bless you all, My brothers and sisters, and I call you all to give yourselves completely to Me and to walk with Me every day. I love you all.”
