To Heal by Christly Rebuke

A divinely inspired rebuke has healing power. Christ Jesus proved this as he sailed one day with his disciples across the Sea of Galilee. A "great tempest" arose so that waves broke over the ship, and the disciples were afraid. But the Bible tells us that the Master rebuked their fears and lack of trust. "Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" he said. Then, turning to the storm, he "rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm." Matt. 8:26;

On another day, Jesus healed Peter's mother-in-law when she was ill in bed. "He stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them." Luke 4:39; This healing was all the more remarkable for the fact that, according to the Gospel account, the patient's fever was "great," yet through the spiritual power expressed in Jesus' rebuke she was made well at once. Without a moment of convalescence, she was able to carry out her household duties.
