Not to Tell Anyone?

Post  song on Mon 27 Oct 2008, 4:55 pm

My friend who is a non-believer asked me the following questions, to be honest I was confused and may be you can help me understand the questions:

  1. Why did Jesus in Gospels tell people after performing a miracle, "not to tell anyone"?
  2. People pray but not all get healed?
  3. Why did the demons speak to Jesus in Mathew 8:28-34

Thank you in advance.

  1. He said so because He wanted people not to focus on miracles but on the one who performed the miracles and that is Heavenly Father.
  2. It is God's ultimate decision to heal or not to heal. We know that God
    is compassionate and merciful and that nothing is impossible for Him. He has authority over all disease and sickness and can choose to heal whomever He chooses, whenever He chooses.
  3. Jesus knew His purpose here on earth - to accomplish the perfect will of His Father. Jesus followed His Fathers plans, and did not torment the demons before the "appointed time." This is why the demons spoke to Jesus. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states, "there is a time for everything…" Apparently the demons had a concern of their impending doom and thought that their number was up and they would be sent to the Abyss.


I hope that I was able to answer your question. May God bless you

Thank you Pastor for explaining this so comprehensively. I also struggled with the question why Jesus told "Not to tell" and now I have understood it.

Thank you Pastor for explaining it so well. I also learnt the meaning, I thought that Jesus motivated others to tell about the miracle as it is human nature to do things for which you are stopped from.
