“Ephphatha!—Open up!” ~~Jesus

Jesus was on a roll. A mighty move of God with healing everywhere. So, He left the region of Tyre, went through Sidon back to Galilee Lake and over to the district of the Ten Towns. Some people brought a man who could neither hear nor speak and asked Jesus to lay a healing hand on him. Such faith in Jesus. They knew he could heal anyone and that nothing is impossible with him. He is plugged into what God wants to do. God is in a good mood and wants to heal us.

So what does Jesus do? He took the man off by himself, put his fingers in the man’s ears and some spit on the man’s tongue. Really? That is how he did it? Yes it is. I can see why he took him off by himself. 🙂

Then Jesus looked up in prayer, groaned mightily, and commanded:

“Ephphatha!—Open up!” ~~Jesus (Mark 7:35 The Message)

And it happened. The man’s hearing was clear and his speech plain—just like that.
