In Matthew 8:1-4, Jesus had finished teaching and came down from the mount. The bible says a great multitude followed Jesus. He had taught them the truth of God’s word and feed a multitude. Many believed and followed. On His way, a leper came to him. He said to Jesus, if thou will, thou can make me clean. He believed Jesus could cleanse him. We must go to God for Him to draw near to us. But it is only by faith that God is moved. Jesus saw his faith and said, I will, be thou clean. He further instructed him to go to the priests and offer a gift that Moses had commanded. Jesus followed the law perfectly. But also as testimony to the priests. No one had been healed of leprosy in Israel since Haman the Syrian by Elijah. We are healed by His stripes. But you first must believe that God is and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. In the midst of every disaster God will keep you. Just like the leper, Jesus said, I will.
