Jesus, Man of Wonder

Amazing, Astonishing Wonder Worker

by Pastor John Hamel


“And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude WONDERED...” (Matthew 15:30)


Everywhere Jesus went multitudes of sick, suffering, hurting, lonely, confused people followed Him.  Wherever these crowds gathered He would perform such astounding miracles and supernatural acts of deliverance that the people wondered or marveled!  Jesus was and indeed still is the Man of Wonder.


“And, behold, a man … cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.  Lo, a spirit takes him, and he suddenly cries out; it tears him that he foams again, and bruising him hardly departs from him. …And Jesus answering said …Bring thy son hither.  As he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down and tare him. Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. …they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did…”  (Luke 9:38-43)


The original word for “amazed” in this verse actually means, “to be stricken with astonishment.”  


You, too, will be stricken with astonishment if you’ll give the Man of Wonder opportunity to help you.  All who unleash expectation in His healing, delivering, providing power end up stricken with ASTONISHMENT.


After Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared to some of His disciples.  They were inside a secret hiding place with the door and windows locked for fear of the authorities.  Jesus simply passed through the wall, supernaturally, to their wonderment.


“As they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.  And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. …they yet believed not for joy, and WONDERED…” (Luke 24:36-41)


Does your life seem like nothing but locked doors and windows?  Does it seem to you that you are locked in a room filled with darkness and fear?  Does it seem as if you’ve been locked away from all the good things in life?  


God wants you to know that it’s not possible for you to be so “locked up” and so “locked away” that He can’t get to you.  That’s why you’re reading this Bible study. 


God sees your pain, your fear and your need and has compassion on you.  He wants to give you the miracle you need.  One that will cause you to marvel.  One that will fill you with astonishment and cause you to realize how wonder-full He actually is.  


Jesus is not the source of your problems.  Jesus is the source of your solution.  


Satan is the source of your problems.


The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I [Jesus] am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)


When people don’t know what the Bible says, they wrongly blame God for all the bad things in life.  But when the Bible opens up to them, they begin to discover and experience the marvelous, astonishing, wonder-full goodness of God. (Psalm 145:8,9; James 1:17) 


Simply say, “Jesus, I choose You as my Wonderful Savior.  I trust You for the miracle I need.  Forgive me for blaming You for what Satan has done to me.” (Romans 10:13) 


Now you’ll begin to see wonder-full things happen FOR you, as opposed to those less than wonderful things that were happening TO you.
