Which is easier to say your sins forgiven or get up and walk?


Matthew 9:5 We will look at two things that was happening in this scripture. One is that the Pharisees believed that what Jesus said was blasphemy. Secondly, the rise and be healed is for the unbeliever not the believer.

For so long many have been confused as to what this scripture means.

What the scripture means:

(1). The teachers of the law didn’t like that, and with good cause. How could a mere man forgive sins, something that only God had authority to do? Jesus knew their thoughts, and he asked them a question, “Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’?”

(2). Jesus told the Pharisees, “So that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, I say to the lame man, ‘Rise up and walk.’ ” To believers, this is unnecessary. We already believe that the Son of man has power to forgive sins. We don’t need a sign of Jesus’ power to demonstrate the fact that he has authority to forgive sins. We feel it and know it as the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit (Romans 8:16).

Life application how do you apply this to your life:

We are to forgive every person even when they don’t ask for forgiveness. Don’t worry and be so concerned about seeing miracles because Jesus said miracles are for the unbeliever. You as a believer have the power to make it happen.

The reason why so many people argue with this scripture is because they are just like the Pharisees they are religious leaders. We aren’t to be religious motivators, we are to be Victorious. We come with a sword in our hands and fire in our mouth. What am I saying? I am saying you are to have Authority!

  1. May it be with the humility to submit to His Will yet the conviction to call upon His Power that we will use the authority you speak of to lift up all that are in need of His Love and Grace. Blessings to you and all who read your post. Doug
