What’s up with Jesus spitting on people?
It is recorded in scripture that people were healed when Jesus used his spit.
Why would He use his spit?
Let’s dig into a few verses and see what treasures we can find.
In Mark 8:23-25 it says ” Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. Then, spitting on the man’s eyes, he laid his hands on him and asked, “Can you see anything now?”…25 Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.
John 9:1-7 As Jesus walked along he saw a man who had been blind since birth. 5 “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”6 After Jesus said this, he spit on the ground. He made some mud and smeared it on the man’s eyes.7 Then he said, “Go wash off the mud in Siloam Pool.” The man went and washed in Siloam, which means “One who is sent.” When he had washed off the mud, he could see.
Mark 7:33-35 After Jesus had taken him aside from the crowd, he stuck his fingers in the mans’ ears. Then he spit and put it on the man’s tongue. 34 Jesus looked up toward heaven, and with a groan he said “Effatha” which means”Open up!” At once the man could hear, and had no more trouble talking clearly.
What we find in all three of these verses is that when Jesus used his spit, people were healed.
Why spit? What is the significance of the spit of Jesus?
I believe it is because, the spit of Jesus contains his DNA!
Whoa, mind blowing! Yes, let that sink in for a minute.
What is DNA? It stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid. It’s the genetic code, the molecule of life. DNA is the carrier of information. It’s the distinctive characteristics or qualities of all living things.
Our DNA tells us who our Daddy is! You can’t deny the hereditary DNA of your Father.
So when Jesus spit on people he was transferring his DNA into them!
Glory to God!
They had no choice but to be healed when the DNA of Heaven touched them!
Blind eyes must see. Deaf ears must hear. Mute tongues must speak.
Jesus inherited his DNA from his Abba Father.
The DNA of Jesus Christ is the Divine Nature of Abba!
And we as believers have the DNA of Jesus Christ living in us!
