Jesus Had Fingernails

I am beginning to look at Jesus in a different light. I love this part of Christianity, you can never be bored, God is always wanting to show you more. Yes, you can dry up and lose interest and look at God's Word as literature, but that's not what I am talking about. Forget religion for a moment and look at what I found in my relationship with Jesus-----

Jesus was man. Broad I know, Obvious I know, but seriously- man, human, flesh. I recently received Prophetic Presbytery and I was told that I would heal. I would heal not only on a natural level but supernatural. This is a deep desire of mine. I want to show that God is a God of signs and healing. That is when my thoughts led me to Jesus being man. Jesus had hands. Jesus had five fingers. Jesus had fingernails. Jesus had splinters. Jesus had blisters. Jesus had palms. Jesus had fingerprints. And through those palms, fingerprints, blisters and all- Jesus healed. He healed and people believed.

Hebrews 2:14-18

14 Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. 15 Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

16 We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. 17 Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. 18 Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.

He was made flesh and through him the veil was broken, the covenant was born and I was saved. Now, I want nothing more than to heal. Heal this broken world. Heal physical and spiritual wounds. Break sinful vows made by the Devil's whispers. I have repetitively heard- "Kerri, you can't save the world ya know?" and they're right, I can't. But Jesus can. And I am in the favor of the Lord and He will answer my prayers of healing. And I believe with all that I have in me that God will heal through me. Not because I have the power, not because I have the talent, not because I am able, not because I am perfect- but because I will make myself available and I refuse to believe that he won't.
