Acts 9:32-43 | Be Healed. The Bigger Picture.

At the end of Acts 9 we observe two, what appear to be random, miracles by the hand of Peter in Lydda (Lod) and Joppa. However, a little insight reveals that two important things were accomplished here: 1) Peter's ministry was validated by God to the people and 2) the prophet Isaiah had spoke of this remnant coming to Christ in Isaiah 33.

We then visit the important truth of all of this. God's healing isn't some trivial bodily and temporary healing as we witness in many miracles in the gospels and Acts. The miracle of bodily healing is a foreshadow of the eternal healing Jesus gives to those who believe on him.
