A CALL TO
MEDICAL MISSIONARY EVANGELISM


Greetings brothers and sisters of the remnant church. We pray ALL is very very well with you, your families, church families, and your walk with God. The times we are living in testify to the fact that we all need to be experiencing a closer walk with the Lord. We need to study exactly how Jesus lived, how He taught, and how He worked. Christ's method is the only method that will guarantee true success in winning souls to the Kingdom of God.

WHY DID GREAT MULTITUDES FOLLOW JESUS?

In Mark chapter 3, we are given a startling account of the results of Jesus utilizing the "right arm" and "entering wedge" of the gospel. In verses 1-6, we read the story of Jesus healing a man with a withered hand on the Sabbath day. The Pharisees stood nearby ready to trap our Lord, as was their custom. The Bible says, "And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the Sabbath day; that they might accuse him." (v. 2) Jesus, the great lingual tactician, delivered two back to back questions that tied their tongues: "Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill?" (v. 4) Jesus completely baffled the hypocritical leaders by going straight to the law, that same law that they used to exact harsh restrictions on the people based on their own selfish, corrupted and warped interpretation of it. "But they held their peace" was their only safe response, remaining neutral on questions they knew would in turn reveal the true intent of their evil self-centered hearts. Verse 6 reveals a typological peek at what we will soon experience in our day - the plan to unite church and state to squash the Truth. "And the Pharisees (religion/the church) went forth and straightway took counsel with the Herodians (government/the state) against him, how they might destroy him." Did that deter the work of Jesus in any way? No. Jesus continued his medical missionary work, in spite of plots against his life. Oh how I love typology. Let's take a brief look at the results of the MME work of our Lord.

BARELY ROOM TO BREATH

Mark 3:7 "But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a GREAT MULTITUDE from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea."

Mark 3:8 "And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a GREAT MULTITUDE, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

Mark 3:9 "And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of THE MULTITUDE, lest they should THRONG him.

Throng: To hem in, to jam, press or squeeze into; to converge round, to mob.

Mark 3:10 "For he had healed many; insomuch that they PRESSED UPON HIM for to touch him, as many has had plagues."

My brother/sister, the common people WALKED great distances to follow this Jesus, whom they had heard was performing miracles, healing ALL manner of sickness and ALL manner of disease. They came by the thousands with a hope and faith that they too could be healed. They pressed upon him with so much faith, belief, adoration and love that often times He had to separate himself from them in order to create reasonable space so that he could teach them as an Instructor to His students. We're not talking about so-called "social distancing" here. Jesus was constantly creating a classroom in nature in order to teach true education to the masses. THAT was the motive of the MEDICAL MISSIONARY EVANGELISM of our Lord. To heal, and to save. Not one or the other, but both.

"In God's work, teaching and healing are never to be separated." {Testimonies, Vol. 8, p. 165.1}

After Jesus healed blind Bartemaeus in Mark 10, verse 52 teaches us an astounding lesson. "And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole."

Do you see the perfect two-step process Jesus employed? When Bartimaeus began yelling after Jesus while sitting on the side of the highway, the Bible says "many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal." The people attempted to silence him. But Bartimaeus fully believed Jesus could heal him (faith). Jesus then healed him, telling him that his faith made him whole. In the original Greek transliteration, the word "whole" literally means "saved." Did you get the lesson? Our work as medical missionaries is not commissioned to us to simply make folks feel better; our work is to win souls to the Kingdom of God, by utilizing our perfect example of MM Evangelism - Christ's Method Alone.

"Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, “Follow Me.”

Jesus created the 8 Laws of Health.
Jesus taught the 8 Laws of Health.
Jesus lived the 8 Laws of Health.
Because Jesus lived the 8 Laws of Health,
He touched lepers while healing
them without wearing a mask.
How about us?
