Listen from:
Not only was our Lord superior to sickness, disease and deformity of all kinds, but He showed Himself repeatedly as in command of the very elements themselves. In this He showed Himself the Jehovah of the Old Testament. We here present a parallel on this point:
“O LORD [Jehovah] God of hosts, who is
“There arose a great storm of wind, and the
a strong LORD [Jehovah] like unto Thee?...Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, Thou stillest them” (Psa. 89:8-9).
“The LORD [Jehovah] on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea” (Psa. 93:4).
waves beat into the ship....And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” (Mark 4:37,39).
“The ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea” (Matt. 14:24-25).
Can it be otherwise than that Jesus is Jehovah?
