Sunday Evangelistic Service . 24th January 2021
The healing of the deaf mute man serves as a spiritual picture of the unregenerate man. The unbeliever is deaf to the things of God, and this leads to a defect in his speech as he is unable to pray or worship God.

Mark.7.32-37And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
