After Jesus conveyed the Sermon on the Mount, His audience members sat in wonderment. The sacred writing says, “The general population was shocked at his principle: for he showed them as one having an expert, and not as the recorders” (Matthew 7:28-29). The Greek word for a specialist in this verse signifies “with authority, control, freedom; as one in charge.” Jesus’ audience members were stating, basically, “This man talks as though He realizes what He is discussing.”
Note that this verse does not state Christ talked “with expert,” yet rather “as one having specialist.” It is one thing to talk about what we consider as a specialist—in an uproarious, rowdy voice, appearing to have added up to control. In any case, in God’s kingdom, a specialist is something by and large unique. It’s something you have, not something you essentially talk.
The specialist Jesus used shook up the whole religious framework. Jewish pioneers continued coming to Him requesting to know where He had acquired His power: “By what expert doest thou these things? What’s more, who gave thee this expert?” (Matthew 21:23). Jesus addressed them point clear, “I’m not letting you know” (see verses 24 and 27). Our Lord knew He didn’t need to reply to the fallen angel about where He got His otherworldly expert.
Christ had this expert in the lectern, as well as finished every evil power. When He entered a synagogue in Capernaum, He was hailed by a man controlled by a devilish soul. The soul shouted out, “Let only us; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? Workmanship thou come to pulverize us?” (Mark 1:24).
Presently, Jesus knew this synagogue didn’t require another sermon or understanding of the Law. It didn’t require a how-to workshop or some energizing new program. It required a man with an expert—somebody who could pursue the fiend out of their middle and rinse both the had man and the weak church.
Christ utilized His power to do only that. Sacred text says, “Jesus censured him, saying, Hold thy peace, and leave him” (1:25). In current terms, Jesus stated, “Quiets down, fiend, and leave.” And Satan fled. “The unclean soul . . . left him” (1:26). By and by, the general population wondered, saying, “What thing is this? . . . For with specialist commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him” (1:27).
If at any point the Church of Jesus Christ required His energy and specialist, now is the ideal time!
