God sometimes heals us like peeling an onion one layer at a time. Healing is based on our beliefs (faith) and receiving
of the Divine Power of God that was released all over creation under the atonement
of Jesus Christ over two thousand years ago. God has already
provided everything for us and we have to learn how to receive this and to
retain it. It's by faith that you receive healing from God. This is what Jesus said to the two blind men that wanted to be healed. Jesus said in Matthew 9:27-30 27 When Jesus
departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of
David, have mercy on us!” 28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men
came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do
this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” 29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According
to your faith let it be to you.” 30 And
their eyes were opened. They were instantly healed. Psalm 107:20 God sent His Word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.
of the church does not teach healing because they don’t want their flock to
think that’s it their own fault for not being healed when they are not and then they fall into discouragement,
get hurt and don’t try anymore. Some of these people will place blame on the minister
and others place the blame on God. They usually
never blame themselves for not being healed.
I have even heard many ministers say that they don’t know why God did
not heal them. If these ministers truly
knew the Word of God they would understand that God has already healed all that
will receive and its Gods will for all to live in health (3 John 1:2). This is where
the church has failed because of their theology and religion. This has made the
Word of God of none effect like it states in Mark 7:13. I have taught
this to many people over the years and have had tremendous results, Praise
God. Many of these people have been
ministers that had been preaching for many years and had their eyes opened and
the truth has set them free.
church and its leaders must open their hearts so they can see the truth and
know that every person that needs healing has to have a personal and individual
approach. I have found by experience
that most healing will not come completely until the reason for their own individual pain and hurts
is exposed and brought to the surface. This
can only be done through the Holy Spirit that gives the man or woman of God the
discernment and truth of this person. Then when this person realizes that
this man or woman of God knows the truth and that this could only come from God because no
one else knows, then they are led to forgiveness and repentance. This will
release the rights that the devil has had to torment or to bring sickness and diseases
to this person. Once this has occurred then
and only then can we use our God given authority (Luke 10:19) to bind up and to cast out these demonic spirits, thus allowing
healing to occur. Now some people just
need to be anointed with oil and prayed for their specific needs in healing and
they will receive instant healing but most need more than that.
need to ask ourselves just what did Jesus do most of the time while on this
earth. Let’s look in Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power,
who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for
God was with Him. Jesus did more of
this than anything else while on this earth but the church has often passed over these scriptures
and for the most part rejected this teaching for today.
is another great example of what Jesus did while on this earth. Notice that as soon as the demons where cast
out that the boy was also instantly healed.
Matthew 17:14-21 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came
to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is
an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often
into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure
him.” Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation,
how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to
Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was
cured from that very hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and
said, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your
unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you
will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and
nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except
by prayer and fasting.” This same testimony is also located in Mark
have personally witnessed in the few churches that allow healing teams with
prayer, anointing oil and laying on of hands of the congregation have very little healing success. At least they are seeing some healing-Praise God. They should be having much more success than they are but I have witnessed the jealousies in these
churches from the leadership down towards the people that use the Gifts of the
Spirit (Ephesians 1:3), thus making
the Word of God of none effect (Mark
7:13). The jealousy must end to make the Word of God work as He has created it
Ministers also need to be very aware of the people
around them and that they have placed in leadership roles. The dark spirit of Jezebel is in control of most of the church in America as I have witnessed this for decades. This is especially true in the churches that are having some success in people working in the Gifts of the Spirit. The dark spirit of Jezebel is in and attacks and controls mostly women in the church but I have also seen this in some men. Some of these Jezebel spirits have been in control of the ministers wives and the wives of the leadership of the church. I have found and witnessed that some of these
people cause harm and control. They keep out many of the great things of God in the
church and the minister is never aware of it.
I have personally been screamed at, shouted at, hissed at, and gossiped
about with lies by these people (called Christians) and the minister has never known
any of this. I have seen and witnessed their
demons. I think that many minister's are blinded by the friendships and trust that have been in place for years, so be
aware of this. Evil lurks everywhere! I believe that most of
these people mean well but they are human and carry demons in them as well
because they have never been healed in the first place and truly set free. We will always be fighting the demons within us
as long as we are alive on this earth because of what the Apostle Paul said towards the end of his life in Philippians 1:19 For I know that this will
turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of
Jesus Christ. Paul made this
statement late in his ministry making me understand that we will always be fighting
demonic forces within or around us. By
being aware that these demonic forces are always present will hopefully teach us
to place on “The Whole Armor of God” each day (Ephesians 6:10-20) and to always fight them so we can be set free
as much as possible during this life time. This has worked for me for many
years and it will also work for you. Praise God!
Did you know that it is our responsibility to receive our healing from God and to keep it? This is because of the last portion of 1 Peter 2:24, “by His stripes we were healed”. Notice this is past tense. It’s already been provided for us. Our healing has already happened for us, even before we were born or even before we had any sickness or diseases. It’s a matter of believing, receiving and keeping our healing. Jesus Christ died for all of us and He is not going to do this again. He provided all of this to us through Grace. After Gods power has healed you, most of the time the symptoms will return to you just as they felt before but most people don’t realize that the devil himself is trying to steal your healing from you and all of us think well it just did not work for me or we use some other excuse and I have witnessed this myself. For almost seven months I had sharp pain in my left shoulder and I had a hard time working out with weights or raising my arm very high and I knew better then this and I was not practicing what I had been preaching. So after prayer for healing if any symptoms come back then say to the devil that I have already received my healing and say “by His stripes I was healed”and do this every time until all of the pain is gone. I kept doing this for three days with that annoying same pain and it felt like it wasn't healed but never the less I kept claiming my healing and speaking this healing out loud “by His stripes I was healed” (that is very important). With each day the pain subsided a little and on the third day (no coincidence of the third day here) the pain was completely gone and I Praised God. This healing was completed for me at this time back in August, 2011, just a few years ago and the pain has been completely removed and has never returned-Praised God. You see I have been teaching this as apart of healing for many years now but I never had to use this on my self until then because I have been so healthy since 1995. I am saying that if you take this attitude about healing about yourself and use this, that you will also receive a complete healing and be made whole and pain free. Praise God!
Proverbs 4:20-22 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
In the book of James 5:13-16 below, gives the mature Christians a command to pray for the sick in the church. It does not say in the Bible that we quit praying for the sick when all of the Apostles died out. This is what some of the major Christian denominations have been teaching for many years and especially here in America. There is not any scriptural truth to that kind of teaching. This is the lie of the devil. You must bring down the walls of your religion before they destroy you. Read the Word of God, the Bible and make it replace your personal theology or faith. This is the only way that you will grow in God’s Word. This is the only way that will make the Word of God come alive and work in your life. Look at Matthew 10:8 below that gives us a command to heal the sick. How can you not understand these scriptures? Remember that healing will never come to those who don’t or wont believe. Jesus had this same problem in His hometown as it says in Mark 6:5-7 and He marveled at their unbelief.
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
God has given all
Christians the authority over the devil and all demonic spirits as Jesus tells
us this in Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the
authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the
enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
How do you misunderstand this? Wake
up Christians and use the authority that God has given to you.
Using the Healing power of God will always be in a learning stage. It doesn't matter how much that you think you know, It's a progression and I thank God that He is always teaching me. Jesus was always teaching the Apostles. Peter is a great example of this progression. Peter like the other Apostles was taught to lay hands on people to heal them. Peter did this at first but in Acts 3, it shows that he grabbed the hand of the crippled man that needed healing and stood him up as he was being healed. Acts 3:6-10 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. (As time passed, people would hope that the shadow of Peter would go across the love ones that were placed in the streets to be healed). Acts 5:15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.
I am not anywhere near perfect and I never will be while on this earth but praise God that I am no longer at the place that I used to be. I have left that place forever-Praise God!
Learn to speak life!
Start paying attention to the words that are coming out of your mouth when you are with family, friends or by yourself and start using words that build up or create and not words that destroy. Listen to yourself! You might be surprised at your own words that you are using everyday. Look at the following scriptures and learn them. Proverbs
18:21 Death and
life are in the power of the
tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs
17:22 A merry heart (speaking life) does good, like
medicine, But a broken spirit(speaking death)dries the bones.
Death and life are truly in our words that we use each and every
day. So speak life in every word that
comes out of your month and you will learn to live in health because Jesus says “by my stripes you
The following scriptures are the scriptures that God used to teach me Healing and Deliverance methods. Both are very closely related since I believe that the majority of sickness and disease are demonic. If you study and use these scriptures with the authority that God has given to you and you are a born again believer in Jesus Christ, you should receive the same results as I have. As Gods Word says in Romans 2:11, For there is no respect of persons with God.
It takes time, so stay in Gods word and have some patience. Remember, God loves you more than you will ever know in this life time.
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (This is God's will for all Christians. Not just some but all.)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, (As a Christian you need to acknowledge that you have all of these gifts in you. Most Christians have never known this because it's not taught in most churches, so how do they ever know to use the power of God. Most die without ever knowing this. This is why most Christians never know or understand the abundant life that God has for us.) When you start believing and know that Gods Divine healing is for today and tomorrow and forever like stated in: (Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.) Then healing Words of God will benefit all who will believe as stated in: Proverbs 4:20-22 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
GOD gave us a command to heal the sick, not a command to pray for the sick: Luke 9:2, Luke 10:9, Matthew 10:7-10
He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
And heal the sick in it and say to them, The kingdom of God has come close to you.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts,
10 nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Father, thank you because, by your stripes I am healed: 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:5
1 Peter 2:24
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
God has placed the same power in me (all believers in Christ) that Jesus Christ has in Him: Ephesians 1:18-20, Ephesians 3:20-21 Ephesians 1:18-20
18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),
19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,
20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
God has given me the authority to use His Name for anything: John 16:23, John 14:14, Isaiah 45:11
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
Then after all, Speak to your problem. Don’t talk to GOD about your problem, talk to your problem about GOD: Mark 11:23-24
23 I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Command the power of GOD to flow and operate: Isaiah 45:11 & Mark 11:23-24 (above)
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
17 And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
Example of God’s Work and Power Through Men: Acts 3:1-8, 4:30 & 8:14-17
1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple;
3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms.
4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.”
5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” (Peter would have been kicked out of most churches today for saying these words, "but what I have I give to you". They would call you arrogant).
7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.
30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
16 For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
20 He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. (This verse is referring to a new Christian).
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (This verse is referring to a mature Christian).
