“Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.” (Mark 5:19)
Original title: Miracles and Parables of Our Lord.
A deep, inspiring, and often challenging study of the Lord Jesus Christ's miracles and parables.
Men who were led by the hand or groped their way along the wall to reach Jesus were touched by his finger and went home without a guide, rejoicing that Jesus Christ had opened their eyes. Jesus is still able to perform such miracles. And, with the power of the Holy Spirit, his Word will be expounded and we’ll watch for the signs to follow, expecting to see them at once. Why shouldn’t those who read this be blessed with the light of heaven? This is my heart's inmost desire.
I can’t put fine words together. I’ve never studied speech. In fact, my heart loathes the very thought of intentionally speaking with fine words when souls are in danger of eternal punishment. No, I work to speak straight to your hearts and consciences, and if there is anyone with faith to receive, God will bless them with fresh revelation.
– Charles H. Spurgeon
In this sixth volume, Charles H. Spurgeon expounds on the deliverance of the demon-possessed man from the region of the Gerasenes, the forgiveness and healing of the paralytic man let down through the roof by his friends, and the woman with an issue of blood healed by touching the hem of Jesus' garment.
