The Hands Of Jesus

Still 'fine-tuning' our process. You can get to the original article HERE

The laying on of hands was used when people were prayed for
to receive the Holy Spirit, in the selecting of servants to wait on tables and
in commissioning people to go on mission. This humanly physical act is
intimately enmeshed with God’s touch. When we exercise spiritual authority in
affirming others for God’s work, the Lord is present to add his touch. Without
Jesus’ touch, we would simply have human resources.

 

Jesus surprised people when he would lay hands on the sick.
They were considered spiritually and/or physically unclean and yet he touched
and healed them. It’s Jesus’ touch that makes someone unclean become pure. In
the call to be living sacrifices, Jesus’ touch brings an imperfect person to a
new reality where they are declared clean and can boldly into God’s presence.

 

When we have a revelation of whom Jesus really is, our
unworthiness is amplified. But Jesus’ response puts us on our feet in
readiness. The apostle John was likely Jesus’ best friend and yet it would be
decades before he would see Jesus in his full stature.

 

Revelation 1:

12 Then
I Turned To See The Voice That Spoke With Me. And Having Turned I Saw Seven
Golden Lampstands, 13 And In The Midst Of The Seven Lampstands One
Like The Son Of Man, Clothed With A Garment Down To The Feet And Girded About
The Chest With A Golden Band. 14 His Head And Hair Were
White Like Wool, As White As Snow, And His Eyes Like A Flame Of Fire; 15 His
Feet Were Like Fine Brass, As If Refined In A Furnace, And His Voice As
The Sound Of Many Waters; 16 He Had In His Right Hand Seven
Stars, Out Of His Mouth Went A Sharp Two-Edged Sword, And His Countenance Was
Like The Sun Shining In Its Strength. 17 And When I Saw Him, I Fell
At His Feet As Dead. But He Laid His Right Hand On Me, Saying To Me, “Do Not Be
Afraid; I Am The First And The Last. 18 I Am He Who
Lives, And Was Dead, And Behold, I Am Alive Forevermore. Amen. And I Have The
Keys Of Hades And Of Death.

 

 

But he laid right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be
afraid.”
