LIFE OR DEATH
CONDITIONS FOR A DEATH-DENYING MIRACLE (Continued)
Reading: Mark 5:40-43 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and
entereth in where the damsel was lying.
5:41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
5:42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was [of the age] of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
5:43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
At the healing of Jairus’ daughter, the unbelief of the crowd was punctuated by their ridicule of Jesus. As long as the circumstance is given a superior place to Jesus, there is no place for a miracle to operate. That crowd had to be put out! Hallelujah! The conditions of a miracle must be exact. The Master is the Main Ingredient of the Remedy, and He knows what must be present to execute a miracle. Only Jairus and his wife were allowed to stay. Notice the remnant with Jesus through the eyes of the Spirit. Three disciples plus the child’s parents equal five which is God’s number for His grace. Miracles are not earned. Miracles are the result of grace! Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ! Although Jairus was a ruler in the synagogue, his status meant nothing in getting a miracle from God. While his status counted for nothing, his faith in God ushered grace and Resurrection Life Power into his situation. With only Jesus and grace present, He lifted the child by the hand and commanded her to arise. Glory to the Lamb of God!
