Jesus heals a blind person, but it takes two encounters for the person to begin seeing clearly. Peter identifies Jesus as the Messiah but Jesus won't let him tell anybody else, then calls Peter Satan! These are both stories of mistaken identity. They have much to show us today.
Have you ever been completely correct, only to find that you had also completely missed the point? This is exactly the state that Peter found himself. There are important lessons to be learned in this conversation between Peter and Jesus.
Jesus encounters a woman who has been bent over for 18 years. He identifies the nature of her ailment as spiritual, and then says that the problem was Satanic in origin. What does this mean? How are we to understand the Satanic force that caused this woman to be crippled under the weight of this spiritual bondage. In this message, Russ Hewett proposes that the problem with her posture had its origin in the posture of others toward her.
