Acts

Acts 14:8-13
8 And in Lystra a certain man without strength in his feet was sitting, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. 9 This man heard Paul speaking. Paul, observing him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed, 10 said with a loud voice, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And he leaped and walked. 11 Now when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 And Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 Then the priest of Zeus, whose temple was in front of their city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, intending to sacrifice with the multitudes.


In Lystra was a man who was lame / a man who was unable to use his feet. He had been that way from birth / crippled from birth and had never walked.

He listened to Paul as he was speaking.

Paul looked directly at him / intently at him and saw that he had faith to be healed and called out / said with a loud voice, “Stand up on your feet!”

At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.

Acts 9:32-35
32 Now it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda. 33 There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed. 34 And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed.” Then he arose immediately. 35 So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.


Aeneas was paralyzed and had been bedridden for 8 years.

Peter to Aeneas: “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and roll up your mat / Get up and make your bed.”

Immediately Aeneas got up.

Then all those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw what had happened to Aeneas and they turned to the Lord.

Acts 8:4-8
4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word. 5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city.


Philip, the evangelist went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed Christ as the Messiah, the Anointed there to them.

When the crowds heard the message from Philip and saw the miraculous signs he performed / which he was doing validating his message, they all paid close attention to what he said / everything he said.

Impure spirits / unclean spirits, demons came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.

So there was great joy in that city.

Acts 5:12-16
12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. 13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. 14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, 15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. 16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.


People brought the sick / carried their sick into the streets and laid them / put them on beds and mats / cots and sleeping mats so that when Peter passed by / came by at least his shadow with healing power might fall on some of them.

Crowds / People gathered also from the towns around / in the vicinity of Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those who were tormented by impure spirits / unclean spirits, and all of them were healed.
