Hearing For The First Time

homophones-hear-hereThe Bible talks a lot about the deaf receiving their hearing. It was one of the miracles that Jesus did that was prophesied Isaiah 35-5-6. When John the Baptist wanted to know if Jesus was the Christ, he answered “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. ” Matthew 11:4-5

We read about these miracles…but what what was it like for the person receiving the miracle? How did they respond? How would you respond? Is there any possible way you could keep quiet? Can you imagine the stir that surrounded Jesus when he came to town? And his healing was perfect and complete…

While we don’t know for certain, I ran across this video of a “modern miracle”…a deaf woman hearing for the first time. WARNING: This will make you cry.
