Why do you harbor evil thoughts?
Matthew 9:4 NIV
Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?
Jesus even knows unexpressed thoughts. In Jesus omniscience as God in the flesh, he knew the condition of the human heart, the evil thoughts that soar our consciences and cause so much trouble in our relationships with one another.
This alone should have been enough for Jesus to prove His deity, demonstrating that He knows evil hearts. He knows the good and the bad thoughts. Because God gave us our powerful minds as a gift not to use as a weapon. The mind can heal the body butthe body cannot heal the mind. Jesus offers a greater proof of His deity. Healing and forgiveness are impossible with man. Only the promise of healing could be immediately proven, because though you can’t see someone’s sin being forgiven, you can see that they are healed.
I like this verse from Psalm 139:2, NIV: You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
