THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 44: Moses, Elijah, and the Lunatic
People often think the dead are asleep in graves, but
Jesus told the disciples that God is the God of the living. Moses
and Elijah were in Paradise awaiting the Messiah. They were briefed
by the Holy Spirit concerning the death and resurrection of Jesus
and then sent to meet the God-man on a mountaintop as a re-assurance
that He was on the right track and to bolster the knowledge of
Peter, James, and John. Meanwhile, the rest of the apostles
encountered a demon possessed boy. They prayed earnestly, but didn’t
have the spiritual clout to free the lunatic. The Son of God
emphasized that having faith will allow you to move mountains, but
in this particular case, fasting was also required. The act of
fasting is like building a savings account. It is too late to begin
preparing when the need arises, but if you do it on a weekly basis,
you will be ready when a situation requires spiritual authority.
All Scripture references are taken
from the King James Bible.
