10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
-Did you catch the crowd’s reaction there at the end? “We never saw it on this fashion.” That tells me that they have seen it (or something like it) before. They’ve seen those who come and say amazing things, do amazing things, maybe even those who bring the amazing message of God; but one day Jesus passed by their way and they saw things they had never seen before and heard things they had never heard before. This was the truth then and has been the truth ever since. Many will come and tell you about things claiming to be of God, hopefully, some will even come and tell you about God, but when God Himself passes by your way, you’ll experience things that you’ve never experienced before.
