Overwhelming Crowd

Todays scripture is from:

Mark 3:7-30 KJV
(7) But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
(8) And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
(9) And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
(10) For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
(11) And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
(12) And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.
(13) And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.
(14) And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
(15) And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
(16) And Simon he surnamed Peter;
(17) And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
(18) And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
(19) And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
(20) And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
(21) And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
(22) And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
(23) And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
(24) And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
(25) And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
(26) And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
(27) No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
(28) Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
(29) But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
(30) Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

One of Jesus human attributes is being overwhelmed by the crowd. Jesus was like one big celebrity walking from village to village and riding ships to get away from mobbing of the crowd. It is hard to imagine walking in the time of Christ with a crowd so pressed around him. Yet the rock star images as well as celebrity images like the Pope might give one a good idea what it must of been like. The people gathering because of the healing only wanting to touch him for their own miracle. Jesus even escaped to a mountainside from the people and called them up to him one at a time for healing. Taking care of individual needs of many people. Jesus then appoint twelve men to be disciple to help him with his earthly burned of healing and casting out demons.

The scribes/teachers of the law came to see what was going on and said Jesus himself was possessed. Jesus response was how can Satan cast out Satan for a house divide can not stand. Devils will lie and cheat for each other. They care not for the flock of God. If the scribes be for God why were they against the work of God. It had to do with money. They were not getting the money from the crowd. They were not getting the attention Jesus was getting from the crowd. They understood not who the Messiah was or that the time in which he come he was going to restore the people to himself. The scribes did not know the task of sharing of the cross would come and the money would be restored to the temple and God's people. God has no desire to remove our task of sharing the word, but his appearance is to draw all to himself. Yet Jesus in the human flesh would grow tired and need to find seclusion at times.

How precious is it for Jesus to love us so much to desire to restore his people and the gentile nation to himself. To bring healing and to cast out devils. We can only imagine that day. People were in pain, blind, deaf and had chronic illness had a desired to just touch Jesus for the miracle. People today need to only to grasp that they need to ask Jesus for a miracle. Yet with any miracle comes great responsibility to share it with others. To share how God delivered you. Some miracles will not come until paradise, and some miracles are meant to take place for today for a purpose. Yet when Jesus walked this earth all was healed and delivered. The Holy Spirit has the power to heal and deliver, but one must examine their own life to know if their healing is not coming for some other reason like sin, or simpling not God's timing. Waiting on God for miracle might be heaven or now. People dream of the miracles and those that receive know the challenge to testify of God's grace and mercy in their life.
