City Visits with Jesus

In the city of Nain after Jesus came there was no more need except in the unemployment area. Even then Jesus offered to employ them in the gospel. Starting in the book of Luke in the Holy Bible (or Holy book of books) we envision Jesus and His entourage approaching the gate to Nain. Coming out was a funeral procession heading to bury one of their dead.

Jesus spied the one most affected by the trauma and spoke an order to the mom of the corpse. Luke 7:11-23 (King James Version)

11And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

12Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

13And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.(Could you stop crying for a stranger?) 14And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

15And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

16And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.( WOW!) How will we react when this happens in our cities? What kind of a reception will there be for such a person as Jesus with that authority? Wouldn't you want that kind of timing for someone you love? The fear of death would leave us immediately and we would want Jesus to stay with us forever.

20When the men were come unto Jesus, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

21And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

22Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

23And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Imagine that! The lame and crippled cannot stay lame and crippled, the blind cannot stay blind, the lepers cannot remain lepers, the aids and plagues of any kind cannot be there, the deaf cannot stay deaf, the dead cannot stay dead, the poor are not to be poor anymore. A city where there are no blind, no deaf, no sickness, no disease, no cancers, the dead live again and there is no need financially. Who could possibly be offended? Those who rely on negative happenings to make their living.

Doctors, lawyers, funeral directors, crematoriums, disability factories, pharmacists, drug companies, traffickers, pushers and every negative profession would have to relocate or change careers. No more paraplegics or quadriplegics, weak or insane among us.

Is any of this possible where you live? Yes! Jesus will gladly come to your city and perform all the miracles, signs and wonders. When? Pray that it be soon for your sakes and the sakes of all your families, friends and neighbors. Invite Him daily and expect that He will answer that prayer with perfect timing. He is scheduled to show up as soon as Father God gives His Son the word. In the meantime we can lay hands on the sick and see them recover too !
