If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you. God Himself has ordained it: Unto the woman He said, ... your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16b ACP/KJV)

Immediately after preaching the Sabbath day service at Capernaum and healing a man who was demon possessed, kind of like someone with turette's syndrome today, Jesus left and went to Simon Peter's house for a meal.
38 And He arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought Him for her. 39 And He stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. Luke 4:38&39 ACP/KJV
See that word "rebuked"? In the original Greek it is the word epitimao, pronounced ep-ee-tee-mah'-o, and it means, in this context, to admonish, by implication, to forbid: or rebuke. In other words Jesus didn't touch her and heal her, He simply spoke and she was healed instantly.
The more we study the chronological order of the years Jesus was on earth, a period of between 2 and 31/4 years, we can see why the Jews wanted Him to be their king. Here in Luke 4:38&39 we read that Jesus comes to Peter's house, and finds Peter's mother in law sick. He simply stands over her, rebukes the fever and she is up and making dinner. Probably saying "Yes my Lord God Jesus, honey comb and fish for You, and you my lord Peter what would you like to have?"
After dinner we see the Lord relaxing and then all of a sudden, maybe hundreds of people, maybe thousands, we don't know, how many that there came to Him, but we do know that a lot of people after dinner came to the Lord to be healed.
40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them, and healed them. 41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, "Thou art Christ the Son of God." And He rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that He was Christ. Luke 4:40&41 ACP/KJV
Please pay close attention to what happened in verses 40 and 41. As the sun was setting, the Sabbath now being over, people from all around brought to Jesus all who were sick, all who had demons, all who needed healing. Many would have you think that it was only those who were really sick that came, but I believe that people brought their kids with buck teeth, kids and family members who had had bones broken years ago that had not healed 100% correctly, people who came because their memories had started to fail them. In other words, everyone came that needed to be fixed. And Jesus "laid His hands on every one of them, and healed them."
And even though the devils knew Him, and who He was, ( "And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, "Thou art Christ the Son of God.""), still the people of Capernaum, the Jews, unlike the people of Samaria, did not fall down before Him declaring Him their God, their Messiah. How sad, yet how very much like today. The muslims today call Jesus, like the Jews, a great teacher, a prophet. The mormons today make Him nothing more than that half brother of the totally evil one, lucifer the devil.
This study, The Chronological order of the life of Our Christ, is the beginning of the Christian age. I believe we are now entering the end of that age, the end of the times Jesus refers to as the "time of sorrows" in Matthew 24:8. One of the sure signs of that is found in Amos chapter eight, verses 11-13 "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst." We see that famine as we see more and more turning not to the word of God, but to commentaries and books about what Jesus really meant to say in His book, the Holy Bible.
In our next study we shall see Jesus leaving Capernaum and going to Galilee.
Sometime in the not too distant future I want to talk to you men in the Militias, about Luke 20:25 and Matthew 24:24.
Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.
As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
