Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. :12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; :19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

Now to me it only makes sense that the New Testament was written in Greek. Think of who Paul was: the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. Obviously he was writing to Greek speaking people, so he would write to them in Greek. There are more reasons, but this is an obvious one. I have run into a new reason why some people dispute the notion that Jesus spoke Aramaic. It has to do with the passion among some Muslims for an Aramaic-speaking Jesus. Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. Only during the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy not at the time of Jesus here on earth During and before the time of Jesus, there wasn’t just one version of Aramaic being used in Judea and beyond. Even many grave inscriptions around Jerusalem at the time of Jesus are not in Aramaic, not in Hebrew but in Greek.. Muslims falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Aramaic as a support for the truth of Islam.
.
Jews falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew as a support for the truth of Judaism A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely. Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew.but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if weknewwhat people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only.. and we have no evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk fromSepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek.
.
Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New testament texts were never originally written in Hebrew, as some Jews claim but they are known liars.. Show us this original Hebrew transcript of Matthew.. none exists..None.. all is in Greek.. and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek Not one.. The New Testament, however, was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC.
.
Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God’s Word in their own tongue. So again the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly. The prominent first century Roman historian Josephus was a Jew himself who wrote in Greek.. it should be understood that there is a long history of “Hellenism” (Greek culture/influence) among the Jewish people, both in ancient Alexandria as well as in the Promised Land itself.Ossuaries dating from the Second Temple period indicate Greek artwork and Greek versions of Hebrew names In Biblical Archaeological Review , Pieter W. Van Der Horst writes, “One of the most surprising facts about funerary inscriptions [extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D] is that most of them are in Greek – approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” Furthermore, since the time of Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C), many of the Jewish High Priests had become Hellenists ; which led to the rejection of the Temple by the Essene Community and eventually to the later Maccabean revolts.
.
Even the Dead Sea Scrolls include Greek texts among the Hebrew and Aramaic. ; So it’s clear that Hellenistic culture and Greek language were pervasive influences in Israel both before, during, and after the time when Jesus lived in ancient Israel and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek all of the ancient textual evidence for the New Testament is in Koine Greek, and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek.
.
The New Testament is by far the best-attested (and best preserved) literature of antiquity, with manuscript evidence dating back to the first century. ; For example, the Magdalen Fragments are written in a style of Koine Greek that was current in the 1st Century A.D. during the very lives of the apostles. Indeed, ancient papyrus expert Carsten Thiede and other scholars regard certain fragments from the Gospel of Matthew to be an eyewitness account. We have some anecdotal evidence of a gospel that underlies the others gospel accounts, but it is clear — both from history and from the textual evidence we have – that the Holy Spirit chose to use Koine (i.e., “common”) Greek as the language to reach out to the world. This is true, incidentally, of the Torah and Nakh, which were also translated into Koine Greek (i.e., the Septuagint, or LXX). Many of the oldest Biblical fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls correspond more closely with the LXX than with the (later) Masoretic text, and indeed we have evidence of Koine Greek manuscripts that were discovered in the Qumran caves themselves…
.
Now when Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiah  that scroll was written in Greek?and the the New Testament Gospels do include non-Greek words in the text (spelled with Greek letters). And some of these words are Aramaic ?So, while Jesus’ use of them may reflect his Aramaic speech, we can’t even be 100% sure of this. And we do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew ..
.
Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) The so-called “biblical case” for the Hebrew speaking Jesus rests mainly on one verse in, not in the Gospels, but in Acts of the Apostles. You absurdaly cannot make a major statement with one fact, one verse.. when you have a whole Greek New testament.. one cannot use this as proof that he always spoke Hebrew, or mainly spoke Hebrew, or even spoke Hebrew in any other circumstance. In no other place does the New Testament tell us that Jesus spoke Hebrew. The fact that the Gospels are written in Greek shows that most of the earliest Christians, including some who followed Jesus during his earthly ministry, knew Greek and used it often, perhaps as their first language. Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions onossuaries(boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem.
.
Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Though Aramaic continued to be spoken by many, Greek grew in its popularity and influence. In the time of Jesus, well-educated Jews, mainly those of the upper classes, would have known and used Greek. So would those who were involved in trade or government Get wise and learn the truth. Jesus was not handed the dead sea scrolls.. he read from the Greek Scroll Bible. The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in theNahalHever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-called NahalH ever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jew..
.
In Matthew 8:5-13, for example, Jesus entered into dialogue with a Roman centurion. The centurion almost certainly spoke in Greek. And, as Matthew tells the story, he and Jesus spoke directly, without a translator. The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). If Jesus knew enough Greek to converse with a Roman centurion and a Roman governor, where did he learn it? at Home and in school.. Jesus’ hometown was a short walk fromSepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.
.
Christianity is a new Religion that is not an updated Judaism, or a revised Judaism.. Most Messianic Jews too now are also still going to hell.. and they are firstly not willing to give up all to follow Jesus . For some Jesus must have spoken Hebrew to some people, otherwise somehow his mission as the Messiah would have been deficient. Some were worried that if Jesus spoke Greek he did not care for the Jews basically.. No one even knows what the Jewish Culture was like at the time of Jesus since the Romans burned all the Jewish books and Library and none exist today thus.. People who are hung up on a Jewish scripture still need the Holy Spirit to explain it anyway and most people do not have him, Jews especially.. .Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been . Why are they falsely so argumentative and hung up on a Hebrew Jesus? when most of the Jews have rejected him anyway and are mostly going to hell..
.
Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been and anyone has yet had failed to prove it too.. The fact that Jesus may have spoken Greek may help us to think differently about him and his ministry. For many years it was common to envision Jesus as growing up in the countryside of Galilee, far removed from multi-cultural hodge-podge of the Roman Empire. But this idealized view of the rustic Jesus is far from the truth. Though he grew up in a small town, he was not at all cut off from the broader Roman world. In fact Jesus grew up with ample exposure to Greco-Roman language, culture, commerce, politics, religion, and philosophy. When he eventually entered Jerusalem to confront the Roman and Jewish authorities there – and to give his life in the process – Jesus was no naive country bumpkin making his first trip to the big city. Rather he was well aware of powers and perils he faced, and he faced these knowing, as he ultimately said to Pontius Pilate (in Greek, I believe), “My kingdom is not from this world” (John 18:36). Given the Holy Spirit, not just excellence of English translations of the Bible by translators who have mastered all of the relevant languages, it’s not necessary for the ordinary Christian to learn Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic in order to understand the teaching of Jesus .and his teachings.. In fact too many Hebrew , Aramaic and Greek speaking persons are still very ungodly persons

Food for thought

1 JESUS (1)

” Spending time alone with Jesus is essential for your well being. It is not a luxury or an option; it is a necessity. Therefore, don’t feel guilty about taking time out to be with Him. Remember satan is the accuser of believers. He delights in heaping those guilty feelings on us, especially when we are enjoying the presence of Jesus. When you feel satans accusations, you are most likely on the right track. Use your shield of faith to protect yourself from him. Talk with Jesus and tell Him what you are experiencing, and ask Him to show you the way forward. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Get close to Jesus, and He will get close to you.” Bismark Kobi

.

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, :23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

.

ONE CAN IMMEDIATELY HAVE THE FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BY ASKING FOR IT.. THERE ARE NO CONDTIONS. UNLIKE THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

.

Mental Conversion to Jesus may take only a moment but practical, real transformation, conversion may take a lifetime?

.

BASICALLY IT ALL DEPENDS HOW LONG YOU REALY WANT TO MAKE JESUS THE LORD OF YOUR WHOLE LIFE AND DIE TO SELF.. IN A MOMENT OR IN A LIFE TIME?

.

Is Jesus Christ now the Lord of your life? or not yet? WHY NOT?

.

SOME PERSONS STILL NEVER MAKE THE FULL TRANSITION SADLY..

.

(John 1:12 KJV) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

(John 6:29 KJV) Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

(John 9:35 KJV) Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

(John 9:36 KJV) He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

(John 17:20 KJV) Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

(Acts 16:31 KJV) And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

(Acts 19:4 KJV) Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

(Rom 4:24 KJV) But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

(Phil 1:29 KJV) For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

(1 John 3:23 KJV) And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

(1 John 5:13 KJV) These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

.

If Jesus Christ now is not the Lord of your life yet do not be suprised God is not using you, or that you are not being enpowered by the Holy Spirit, and as a result you are mostly BARREN

.

AND FOR A TOUCH OF HEAVEN HERE ON EARTH.. CLAIM THESE PROMISES NOW

.

Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

(Rev 21:4 KJV) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

.
  ” There is a river of the Holy Spirit that comes from God whose streams makes glad “believers” and fills them with joy and peace. As a result this river gives them joy and gladness, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Yes, Joy and gladness are the trade marks of being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not only to be understood with our hearts and minds and appreciated for its many miracles, signs and wonders but it’s to be experienced through the moving of the Holy Spirit. ” Walt Kam ”

.

There are some people who want to be the bride on every wedding and the corpse on every funeral! Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another, always considering others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:3 When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. Luke 14:8-11   Remember the cause of King Herod’s death? Acts 12:21-24″ Magumba Martin

Is it right for a woman to preach, prophecy, speak in toungues,  or to pray in the church without wearing a covering on her head? This is a very divisive, controversial and an often too  emotional issue.. Firstly is it right for a women to preach? not just without a physical or symbolic covering, meaning the approval of the elders of a church? … The pastor firstly basically is not to  be the head elder of a church too ?  Another related Question is it right for a Church not to be run by a group of elders?   And Can a women be a preacher, an Apostle, a Missionary? Now what about apostle Junia , Rom 16:7 “Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.” Is it now also the letter of the law that only counts or the spirit of the law? And what about the Magna Carta of women even as stated by Jesse Pen Lewis ? It is true that the  Hen pecked husbands do not like the wife to embaress them in Public? Can a wife though preach with ther husband’s permission?
.
Pray about it and ask God to show you the truth and not mere men..
.
(Isa 66:3 KJV) He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
.
It seems that many people, professing Christians included now,  tend to personally only seek God only when they have serious needs, problems or they do want something really bad and next when the problem is solved, or they got what they wanted, they next often tend to, do seem to forget about God again? But even all Christians now still do have major problems in life.. for there is a real devil who troubles us personally all of our life and we we are to resist him in the faith.. True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with God here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols.    Why is God jealous of idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car,  self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, your nationality … for we all had or  have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but  filling it with extremes or  false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never.
.
If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts.  Hey I also have learned long time ago that merely telling the truth to some people will not work, they have their false idols, false lies they still want to handle, and they will take the Ostrich approach to the truth, but hopefully the truth will next still help some people. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/you-can-have-no-idols-before-god-ever/
.

Still the essentials of the Bible  are:

I believe that Jesus Christ was literally conceived and born of a virgin named Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:26-33).

I believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life (1 Pet. 2:22; 1 Jn. 3:5).

I believe that salvation is in none other than through the name, person, work, and grace of Jesus Christ (Jn. 14:6; Jn. 3:16; Rom.5:8).

I believe that all 66 books of the Bible are the “only” inspired word of God to the world. I do not acknowledge the Apocrypha, Psuedopigrapha, Gnostic Gospels, or the Book of Mormon to be “inspired scripture” (Tim. 3:16).

I believe that God is the creator of all things, is all-poIrful, all-knowing, and in control to do as He wills (14:15; Jer. 32:17; Eph. 3:20; Psa.139:1-4; 1 Sam.2:6-9; Psa. 24:1).

I believe that all of humanity has fallen short of God’s glory and is in need of salvation; hence the reason Jesus Christ came to the earth (Rom. 3:23; Rom. 6:23; Rom. 5:8; Jn. 14:6).

I believe that God is one, but reveals Himself through the persons of the Trinity as The Father, The Son as Jesus Christ , and The Holy Spirit. Furthermore, I believe that each Person of this Trinity is God (1 Cor. 8:6 6:44; Rom. 1:7; Isa. 9:6; Jn. 1:1 Acts 5:3; Heb 9:14; Jn. 4:24).

I believe that those who die without salvation go to a literal place called Hell (Psa. 9:17; Psa.73:12-19; Luke 16:23.26; Jn. 12:48).

I believe that those who belong to Christ will inherit eternal life in a literal Kingdom of Heaven (Isaiah 65; Zech. 14).

I believe that Jesus Christ will return to gather His people, as Ill as the resurrection of the dead in Christ at His return (1 Cor. 15:21-23).

I believe in the water baptism of believers in Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38-41; Acts 22:16).

I belive in God’s will still is healing for his children, it is the children’s bread

I believe in the Holy Spirit baptism of believers in Christians evidenced by speaking in tongues as a separate experience upon making Jesus Christ Lord of your life personally ( Acts 10:38) 

I believe that Christ is the Head of the church, which should be governed by Him and that all ministers are simply under-shepherds, mutual and voluntarily  submissive one to another, plural eldershp(Eph. 1:22-23).

SHEEP

Life for all is a life of hardships, temptations, obstacles,  and trials,so you need God:s help in all.

 

Jesus wants to be first in our life for he is a sufficient provider for all of our needs, all of them. Colossians 3:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

 

Jesus said without me you can do nothing, John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 

 

Take an honest look at your current priorities and give them all up to Jesus.The more you try to carry our  your life on your own,   pursuing your own desires, the more likely you will fail to achieve them, you will rather be creating more stress  and frustrating chaos in your life. But the more you pursue a closer obedience, relationship with God above all else, the better you’ll achieve peace, and will  receive the blessings God wants you to have.

 

Put God and His will your continual highest priority,even over everyone and everything else in your life.

 

Have the Holy Spirit to empower you to live solely God’s way. Invite the Holy Spirit to renew you  and to give you fresh doses of the faith and power you need

 

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 

 

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Seek to know God and his will in all, continually. Serve only God as he leads you. Deuteronomy 6: 5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

 

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

 

 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:  

 

Philippians 4:6“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” 

 

2 Peter 1: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 

 

Jesus Christ is  El Shaddai – our all sufficient God. John 6:35. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

 

John 10:7 7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

 

I John 5:11 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

 

Psalms 23: 1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

God is God of all people. So too, Christ is the Messiah and King of all people.

Firstly Abraham Wasn’t even A Jew .

The “seed” of David was actually prophesied, by the LORD, to righteous Abraham as Abraham’s seed. “22:15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” (Genesis 22:15-18 KJV)

Seventeen verses in the New Testament describe Jesus as the “son of David”.

“A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ THE SON OF DAVID, the son of Abraham: Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife, Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asa, Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram, Jehoram the father of Uzziah, Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josiah, and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon. After the exile to Babylon: Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor, Azor the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Akim, Akim the father of Eliud, Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ. 11:36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there. 11:37 And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all that thy soul desireth, and shalt be king over Israel. 11:38 And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee. 11:39 And I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not for ever.” (1 Kings 11:36-39 KJV)

33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. Jeremiah 33:

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph SON OF DAVID, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.’” Matthew 1:1-20

“The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.’ Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of HIS FATHER DAVID, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.’ ‘How will this be,’ Mary asked the angel, ‘since I am a virgin?’ The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.’” Luke 1:28-35

Romans 1: 3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Joseph was not the father of Jesus; God was. Jesus is the human aspect of the offspring of David. Before that, Jesus was spirit. As the Son of God in spirit form, Jesus created all things John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Jesus created all things, including humanity, as one of the persons of the Godhead before He was flesh and blood. It was only after Mary gave birth to Him that Jesus became flesh and blood. Jesus truly had a human ancestry from his mother’s side which linked him to King David and to the Patriarchs:

The Messianic prophecies foretold of Jesus the Son of God as coming in the flesh, as the offspring of a woman. So Jesus, the Word, became flesh John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

“Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe OF JUDAH, THE ROOT OF DAVID, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.’” Revelation 5:5

Revelation 22:16, I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

“Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!’ Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’” Mark 10:46-48

“David said about him: ‘I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’ Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place ONE OF HIS DESCENDANTS on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to the grave, nor did his body see decay.” Acts 2:25-31

“Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel …” 2 Timothy 2:8

Galatians 3:16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ.

Romans 4:13 For the promise that Abraham would be heir of the world was not made to him and his descendants through the Law, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 3: 7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

Acts 3:25 And you are sons of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers, when He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all the families of the earth will be blessed.’

1 Corinthians 3:23 and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.

Galatians 4:28 Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of the promise.

Ephesians 3:6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 4:7,28 Why you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir

Revelation 21:7 He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, …

2 Timothy 2:7-11 Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. 8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel, 9 for which I suffer hardship even to imprisonment as a criminal; but the word of God is not imprisoned. 10 For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory. 11 It is a trustworthy statement: For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him.

There is “nothing new under the sun”, humans have not evolved for the better.. The Bible teaches that, at the end of the creation period, God pronounced His whole creation to be “very good”, in spite of all this. It also teaches plainly that this present type of world, “groaning and travailing in pain” (Romans 8:22) only resulted from man’s sin and God’s curse thereon. “By one man sin entered into the world and death by sin” (Romans 5:12).  Death did not “enter the world” until man sinned (Romans 5:12; I Corinthians 15:21). Evidently even Satan’s rebellion in heaven had not yet taken place, because everything was pronounced “very good” there, too.

 

The theory of Evolution leaves out profoundly important spiritual questions, such as why we are here, if there is a God, and what happens after we die. The gospel of Jesus Christ includes more than the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The present, future kingdom of Christ are also part of God’s everlasting gospel.

 

In many ways evolution and Christianity are not compatible. “God is not the author of confusion” (I Corinthians 14:33).

 

The facts of nature are the acts of God.Some theologians have attempted to reconcile the biblical Creation story with the evolutionary explanation for the origin of life. But to do so requires interpreting the six days of creation in Genesis as long, indefinite periods of time rather than six literal, twenty-four hour days as the text indicates. Such an interpretation of Scripture cannot be supported by sound principles of Bible study. The clear   biblical account is that each day of Creation week was a twenty-four-hour day.

 

The Creation narrative in the first two chapters of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, clearly indicates that the work of creation was done in six, twenty-four-hour days. Evolution directly contradicts this and denies God’s creative power. Just as Christ performed miracles instantaneously while He was here on earth, so also He did His work of creation instantaneously during Creation week. The Bible says, “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. . . . For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:6, 9; NKJV). God says, “I have made the earth, and created man on it. I—My hands—stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded” (Isaiah 45:12, NKJV).

 

Many of the authors of both Old Testament and New Testament clearly accepted the creation account as accurate history: David (Psalm 33:6, 9), Nehemiah (Nehemiah 9:6), Isaiah (Isaiah 45:18), and Paul (Colossians 1:15-17). Jesus, Himself, accepts creation as a literal historical event.

 

There is no astronomical or evolutionary basis for the seven-day week. It had its origin at Creation when God made the earth and everything on it in six days—and rested on the seventh day.

 

All human beings are equal. All are children of God. All have the same origin. Racial intolerance has no basis for those who believe in Creation. Those who believe in evolution have reason to believe that some races are more highly developed than others.

 

The theory of evolution cannot handle sin and thus  it denies the purpose for Jesus’ death on the cross. The Bible says that God created this world perfect in the beginning, but that since the entrance of sin, it has become more and more degenerate (see Genesis, chapters 1-3). This is completely opposed to the evolutionary idea that the world is evolving and progressing upward.The Bible says that death is the penalty of sin (see Genesis 3:3, 4, 19; Romans 6:23). Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for sin that we should have paid.  For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The Bible clearly indicates that mankind’s nature from birth is  evil. Only through the power of God can human beings have a present and a  future redemption, transformation.

 

Evolution makes no allowance for a world-wide flood. Yet Jesus clearly accepted Noah and the flood as historical fact (see Matthew 24:37-39). These are  many examples from the study of the earth and its contained fossils that support a major world-wide flood as well. From a biblical perspective, the most likely explanation for the extinction of the dinosaurs is the worldwide Flood described in Genesis 6 and 7.

 

The Bible does not teach random evolution. The Bible does teach an act of creation by God of a universe out of a formless void, and then individual acts of creation in an ascending order from the simpler forms of aquatic life to the mammals and finally to a creature made in God’s image — man (see Genesis 1:20-25)

 

There are fundamental tensions or even contradictions between Christianity and evolution such that people cannot consistently adhere to both.It is more productive to take the Bible literally and then to interpret the supposed actual facts of science within its revelatory framework. If the Bible really cannot be understood, it is useless as revelation. If it contains scientific fallacies, it could not have been given by inspiration. Evolution contradicts the Bible record of creation. Ten times in the first chapter of Genesis, it is said that God created plants and animals to reproduce “after their kinds”.  The God of the Bible is a God of order and of grace, not a God of confusion and cruelty.”A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit” (Matthew 7:18). The evil fruit of the evolutionary philosophy is evidence enough of its evil roots. Thus, evolution is Biblically unsound, theologically contradictory. Immoral and harmful.

When dealing with pre-history, it is difficult to come up with “proofs.” No one was present as observer when life began except Jesus. It takes faith to believe in evolution or God as well.The evidence for Creation by an Intelligent Being is clearly the stronger. If we dismiss the accuracy of the biblical Creation account, we are free to dismiss other parts of Scripture and thus become the judge of what is or is not true in spite of what Jesus and the Bible authors say.

 

Genesis 9:

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.

6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Healing

Sickness & HEALING

If it was God’s will for us to stay sick then why would God allow the Hospitals to be built, or why would Jesus himself now cure the sick people..

(Heb 13:8 KJV)  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

(Heb 13:12 KJV)  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.14  For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.14 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16  But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? 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 shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(James 5:17 KJV)  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

(James 5:18 KJV)  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

(James 5:19 KJV)  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

What we all need to do is to obey, follow after the word of God and not rather try to explain it away…

(Acts 10:38 KJV)  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.

(Isa 53:5 KJV)  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.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Some of the  distorted preachers, even Pentecostals do too often do teach that any  Christian should not be sick at all and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith and God will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that  a temporary human sickness can temporary serve God’s purposes.  But also yet the Fundamentals Evangelicals too now also go overboard denying that any healing tend to exist today as well. Relatively as Jesus himself had said this is not always the case..  sickness can exist for the glory of God too. But it is still always God will to deliver us from all evil, all sicknesses now too.. and how and when he God chooses to do so is his prerogative..

Relatively a  too common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is that it is solely, always  your own personal fault for being sick.  This false teaching of sin being the cause of all sickness can also be found in Hinduism as well.  They teach that it is because of your own lack of faith and/or knowledge, unconfessed sins if you are sick or poor.   This unloving, cruel and unbiblical teaching does not come from God but from Satan who distorted God’s basic truths on healing. Can you imagine the gall of anyone, even a false elder, pastor, unlovingly trying to tell a person to their face that the reason their daughter sick is because of their lack of faith?  or that God is punishing them of their own sin?

Can you imagine the cruelty in telling a person bound to a wheelchair that if they had enough “faith” they would  surely  “Rise and be healed?”  But what does the Bible say about it, teach.

Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal ignorance of what the Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people wrongfully rely mainly on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing and Not on God and his Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up beforehand anyway and are not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend use out of context bible verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit, substantiate their own pet views.. they need to read these verses..

(Mat 8:7 KJV)  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

(Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

(Mat 12:10 KJV)  And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

(Mat 13:15 KJV)  For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

(Mark 3:15 KJV)  And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

(Luke 4:18 KJV)  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Many people want to know why the miracles of Christ are not abounding today.. the answer is quite simple..

(Mat 13:57 KJV)  And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

(Mat 13:58 KJV)  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

(Gal 3:5 KJV)  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

(Mat 15:28 KJV)  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

(Mat 21:21 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

(Mark 2:5 KJV)  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

(Mark 10:52 KJV)  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

(Mark 11:22 KJV)  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

(Acts 20:21 KJV)  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8   A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

I HAVE ALSO LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT EVEN IF MANY PERSONS DO SEE A MIRACLE THERE WILL BE NO SIGNIFICANT SPIRITUAL CHANGE IN THEIR LIFE.

(John 12:37 KJV)  But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

When praying for a believer’s  healing, which is the children’s bread,  as per the book of James the sick person has also to confess and also to repent of  their sins, admit their own causes of the illness..

(John 5:13 KJV)  And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

(1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

(John 8:11 KJV)   And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

(1 Cor 11:27 KJV)  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Prayer and fasting for deliverance though is also needed.

(Mat 17:18 KJV)  And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19  Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

(1 Cor 10:13 KJV)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

(Phil 4:19 KJV)  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

GOD WILL SUPPLY IF YOU LET HIM ALL YOUR NEEDS, FORGIVENESS, SALVATION, REDEMPTION, SICKNESS, DELIVERANCE.

(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

(Psa 51:16 KJV)  For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

AND IF IT WAS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU TO BE SICK THERE WOULD ALSO BE SICKNESS IN HEAVEN.

(Rev 21:3 KJV)  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.5   And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

(Heb 10:38 KJV) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Only Christians can firstly  by faith confess God’s healing promises….

(Isa 53:5 KJV)  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

A person can confess this verse all they want and yet they will not be healed if they do not respect, follow the rest of God’s conditions.. what there are more conditions? yes read the verse afterwards also for a start..

(Isa 53:6 KJV)   All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

this following verses says we have to also humbly repent, confess our sins so do the next ones..

(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? 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 shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (1 Pet 3:4 KJV)  But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

One cannot pray for personally healing and have unrepented sins still in one’s life.

(James 5:12 KJV)  But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? 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 shall save the sick, and the Lord  16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20   Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

(1 Cor 11:26 KJV)  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Many times after even an in repentant pastor slanders me someone will phone me and say did you know the pastor is now seriously sick..

(Mat 5:22 KJV)  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

I REALLY DO also  believe in PERSONALLY appropriating, claiming for ourselves  God’s word  by faith, the specific  word that God has specifically given to us. For God to speak to us we do need to be in a valid relationship with Him, His Son Jesus, the Holy Spirt, his Word as well.. and we need to listen to what he personally is telling us what to do..(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:(Jer 6:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. (Isa 30:21 KJV)  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)   In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

I also still very tired of false preachers taking isolated words of the Bible and trying to build a major doctrine, lifestyle around it.. even those who say  there is “power in our words”.

The power is not in our words, not at all,  the power is always ONLY in God’s words and what God says will happen if we follow after God’s Word or what will happen to us by God’s power if we reject God’s word to us.

Man too often tries to make himself the center of attention, to exaggerate his self importance and his capabilities.. without God we are nothing and always will be nothing.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12  So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Some they say there is power in our words,  and they use vain repetition trying to make things happen, they have wrongfully turned their eyes of God and onto themselves..

(Mat 6:7 KJV)  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

(Mark 7:7 KJV)  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Valid Positive confession is confessing the word of God given PERSONALLY  to us.. (Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(Rom 14:23 KJV)  And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

We also cannot perform a miracle any time we want, nor can we just claim any Bible verse, for God is always sovereign, in charge, not us..

Even Jesus could not do what he wanted to, he was always dependent on what  the Father said he could do.. (John 5:19 KJV)  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

(Mat 8:16 KJV)  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? 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 shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(Isa 53:5 KJV)  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.

(Acts 4:10 KJV)  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 13  Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

(1 Tim 5:23 KJV)  Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.

(Luke 8:2 KJV)  And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

note above here that evil spirits and infirmities are two separate items here..

(Luke 7:21 KJV)  And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

Note the above word many.. it is not the word all…

(Rom 15:1 KJV)  We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Some people still wrongfully do look for false reasons not to help any others, they falsely even do delegate wrong reasons for the others being poor  or sick now as well and thus wrongfully excuse themselves from not personally helping them .. sadly some Christians,  some, pastors included.  I have met many professing Christian persons who wrongfully teach even that all sickness is caused by a  personal mental problem,  or they do wrongfully teach that one has power within oneself to heal oneself… or that all sickness is only demonic in cause, needing only a spiritual cure..   and none of this is in accordance to the Bible, or what God teaches us now as well..

(Rom 8:26 KJV)  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God alone has power to heal us, we never do not have any of this power in us.. this power is in God to use as God wills and not in us still too….

(2 Cor 12:9 KJV)  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

(2 Cor 4:8 KJV)  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10   Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

I have already made it personally clear that all sickness is not demonic in cause.. some sickness also does have real physical causes.. and it is for that reasons that God has not said that we should not go to any doctors.. rather what God has said was that we should not go to Doctors’ first for our healing.. we need to go to God first in prayer, and he God can next choose to heal us directly or tell us to go to a doctor next.

My own daughter was miraculously healed of a very serious sickness without any doctor then helping her.. at that time there was no available medical help for her sickness as well.. but next God told me to take my son for surgery to remove a cyst. I asked God why? if he could heal my daughter then why did my son have to go for surgery.. God clearly said to me I work through people as well, even through doctors and what they cannot do God will next do for me..

Note this historic fact most of the major hospitals, even major educational institutions were originally founded by Christians who cared about the good welfare of others.

(Luke 10:30 KJV)  And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31  And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32  And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  33  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34  And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35  And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37  And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

(Mark 9:41 KJV)  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

(John 17:1 KJV)  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

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.   NKJ

Romans 8:32  He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?  NKJ

Psalm 103:2-5 NIV 2 Praise the LORD , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 147:1-3 NIV Praise the LORD . How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!  2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. 3 He heals the brokenhearted  and binds up their wounds.

I’m leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So, don’t be troubled or afraid. (John 14:27)

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters … they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God” (Isaiah 43:1-3).

He (God) comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why whenever other people suffer, we are able to comfort them by using the same comfort we have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:34)

Blessed are those who mourn. They will be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)

If any of you are having trouble, pray. If you are happy, sing psalms. (James 5:13)

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

Psalm 46: 1-2 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea

Isaiah 49:14-16 But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”

Isaiah 51:3
The LORD will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the LORD.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
thanksgiving and the sound of singing.
Isaiah 54:10 “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Isaiah 66:12-14
For this is what the LORD says:
“I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried on her arm
and dandled on her knees.
As a mother comforts her child,
so will I comfort you;
and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”
When you see this, your heart will rejoice
and you will flourish like grass;
the hand of the LORD will be made known to his servants,
but his fury will be shown to his foes.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Matthew 6:19-34 I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 11:25-30 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

John 14:1-4 Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you asthe world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Romans 8:14,15 … because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

Romans 8:31-39 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ” For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

Thessalonians 4:13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.

ALL OF OUR ACTS ARE TO EXALT THE FATHER AND NOT OURSELVES..

Some persons, preachers they do say there is power in our words, in our verbal positive confession, using only positive words, that is not really the truth, rather the power always  is in God  only.

For instance if we are always going around worrying, expressing about  our fears so next these things  they  will likely next happen to us, not because we have confessed the  words of fears, but because  God will want to show to us how he can and we will through us overcome the things we feared..as believers.. we as committed believer sin God are not allowed the luxury of defeat.. we will be overcomers over our fears too.. and thus we will learn that (Phil 4:13 KJV)  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

(Rev 12:11 KJV)  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Take for example Job who said (Job :   KJV)  For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.  he learned that he could next be victorious over what he feared as well..

(Job 42:12 KJV)  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 13  He had also seven sons and three daughters.14  And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17  So Job died, being old and full of days.

We all also do need to confess personally  more what Jesus has already done for us, such as by his stripes we were healed too, and not what we think bad can or will happen to us.. The only valid Positive confession is what Jesus has done for us and those words that God has personally told us we can claim by faith..

THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH FOR PERSONAL SALVATION, FAITH  IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE, AND ONE BODY OF CHRIST, AND ONE TEMPLE,  IT IS THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.

A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to  Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.

IF YOU BEGIN TO PRAY FOR THE SICK AS OUTLINED BELOW, YOU TOO WILL BEGIN TO SEE JESUS HEAL THE SICK THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS..

(1 Ki 8:28 KJV)  Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

(2 Chr 6:19 KJV)  Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:

(Psa 102:17 KJV)  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

(Prov 15:8 KJV)  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

(Prov 15:29 KJV)  The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

(James 5:15 KJV)  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

The Basics by Dr. Gary S. Greig   Dr. Mark Virkler   Rev. Frank Gaydos John G. Lake Ministries, Pennsylvania Healing Rooms Ministry Director

THE BASIC KEYS TO RELEASING THE LORD’S HEALING ANOINTING IN, ON OTHERS, OURSELVES

Basic Statements:

1) Focus on God, His word, his promises, Jesus, not on yourself or the others at all, do forget everything else, worship Him, God,  Jesus alone…

(Gen 20:17 KJV)  So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.

Take the initial step.. start a ongoing relation with Jesus through your ongoing personal prayer, communication with God.

It is not God’s ability to heal others too that is the key  issue but clearly our own personal lack of unpracticed faith, our own lack of prayer.. for we are firstly too secular, too worldly minded too often to be used spiritual by God. .

(Eccl 3:11 KJV)  He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

(Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

(Mark 3:27 KJV)  No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

(Rev 3:8 KJV)  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

2) As an obedient, humble, faithful servant of God continually daily do Ask God  by faith  for the Holy Spirit’s power to be released, to see it, and do beforehand by faith thank God for it . Promise and give God all, all of the credit for the healings, miracles, works of God, do not take any, any of it for yourself, for it will be deadly for your own spirituality next if you do.. Pride still is a deadly sin.

(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

(Isa 8:15 KJV)  And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

(Ezek 34:16 KJV)  I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

(James 4:3 KJV)  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

3) Rely on the direct input from the Holy Spirit, listen to him before you do even next pray, Engage the Prayer-type that the Spirit leads you to pray.. 

(John 5:19 KJV)  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

(2 Cor 13:8 KJV)  For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

4) Dipstick (Check personally for the full filling of the  Oil of the Holy Spirit) and Remove the personal Blocks

(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The Confession of sins, restitution might be first required by the person being prayed for as well.

(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? 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 shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
5) Next do hold in your mind  the detailed faith-picture of the person healed as given to you by God , and do not waver, do continue to thank God soley for it

(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

6) Differentiate between a miracle and a healing.. Miracles are instantaneously while Healing my have a time element.. but all healings, miracles too  can be certified by medical doctors.

7) By faith in God hold on to the healing recognizing that false symptoms counterfeit by the devil can come next instead and cause you to doubt, even to lose your healing.

(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

(John 5:15 KJV)  The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

(John 8:11 KJV)   And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Expanded Statement:

1) See Jesus transfigured in God’s light (Matt. 17:1-8), forget yourself, and  worship Him in your spirit. (Bib. Found. sec. III-IV)

2) Ask for and see Jesus’ divine healing light and power radiating onto and  into the person; see it focused on the infirmity, and thank the Lord  that the anointing is being released and coming in. (Bib. Found. sec.  III,VI-VII)

3) Engage the prayer-type that the Spirit leads you to–petition, command,  or pronouncement; if led by the Spirit to use command prayer, you may  first  command the pain to leave in Jesus’ name, then command the underlying  disease to leave. (see Healing Prayer Outline)

4) Ask the person how they feel (better, same, worse), and remove any  inner blocks or demonic influence, as the Lord leads you to. (see  Healing Prayer Outline and Bib. Found. sec. IX-XI)

5) Hold in mind a detailed faith-picture of the person healed and say,  “Thank you, Lord, that that is the way it is going to be, because your  power is healing this person.” (Bib. Found. sec. III, V)

Releasing the Healing Anointing of Jesus in Prayer

Methods and procedures do not heal. Jesus does. But these are some points which help us  draw near to Jesus and discern what He wants to do through us in prayer.

  1. FOCUS ON JESUS/ FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE

–Dial down, quiet yourself and tell the person being prayed for to dial down,  quiet themselves and focus on Jesus who is always with us (Matt 28:20).

Tell the person just to receive and not to strive or pray themselves or pray in  tongues, which tends to block the Holy Spirit from healing a person (Isa. 30:15  “”In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your  strength”; Jesus had to take the blind man away from his friends when his  friends “begged Jesus to touch him,” (Mk. 8:22) suggesting emotionally intense  fear-filled striving).

–With your mind’s-eye (eyes of your heart) see Jesus as He is described in His  Transfiguration in Matt. 17:1-8—See Jesus’ face and clothes full of God’s  brilliant light (Heb. 1:3), surrounded by the bright cloud of God’s Spirit. See  Jesus’ light (His anointing and power) radiating onto you and into you. Keep   your focus on Him (worship the Giver not the gifts) and praise Him in your spirit  for His sacrifice on the cross for our sins, for His love and power.

–Keep your inner attention on Jesus always throughout the prayer time. Listen  to any specific insights or guidance Jesus may speak or bring to mind for the  prayer time or the person by tuning to the voice and vision of God (i.e.  spontaneous thoughts and spontaneous pictures—for help learning to hear God’s  voice, maybe go to  http://www.cwgministries.org/Free-Christian-Books-and-Articles.htm and click  on “The Four Keys to Hearing God’s Voice”). What is the Lord doing in this person’s life  and what does He want to do through your prayers?

–Assume God will send healing unless He has shown you otherwise (“the  prayer of faith will heal the sick person (Grk. fut. Indicative sosei “will heal” not  “may heal” or “might heal…if it’s God’s will”)” Jas. 5:15).

–Keep your eyes OPEN so you don’t miss the signs of the Holy Spirit’s  manifestations on the person.—some typical signs: eyelids fluttering, change in  breathing, slight shaking, flush on skin, radiant sheen on the face, visible  peace:

† Possible responses to the presence of God and the power of the Holy  Spirit:

Shaking or trembling (Exo. 19:16; Ps. 2:11; 96:9; 114:7;  119:120; I Chron. 16:30; Ezra 9:4; Ps. 2:11; 119:20; Isa. 66:5; Jer. 5:22;  23:9; Dan. 10:10-11; Mat. 28:4; Acts 7:32; Heb. 12:21).

Falling over–  “resting” or “being slain” in the Spirit (I Kgs. 8:11; Ezek. 1:28; 3:23; Dan.  8:17-18; 10:9; Mat. 28:4; Lk. 9:32; Jn. 18:6; Acts 9:4 (26:14); I Cor.  14:25; Rev. 1:17).

Intoxicated state of mind (Acts 2:4, 13, 15; Eph. 5:18;  cf. I Sam. 1:12-17; I Sam. 19:23f.).

Laughing, shouting, or crying (Gen.  17:1, 3, 17; Ezra 3:13; Neh. 8:9; 12:43; Ps. 126:2; Prov. 14:13)

Feeling  heat, energy (Mk. 5:30; cf. Col.1:29 energeia // dunamis ).

Deep peace  (Rom. 15:13; I Cor. 14:33), etc.

Radiance on one’s face (Acts 2:3; 6:15  and 7:55; II Cor. 3:18 (and Exo. 34:29).

ASK FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT’S HEALING POWER TO BE FULLY RELEASED  INTO THE PERSON

–Ask the Lord to release His power–“Jesus, please release the healing  power and light of Your Holy Spirit on this person.”/ “Come Holy Spirit,   release your healing power and light on this person.” (Ezek. 37:9 Hebrew  bo’i haruakh “Come O (Holy) Spirit!” [Heb ruakh here clearly refers to the Holy  Spirit, because in Ezek. 37:6 ruakh is translated in the Greek Septuagint as  pneuma mou “My Spirit” referring to God’s Spirit and because of the allusion to  creation by the Holy Spirit in Gen. 1:2]; “O Lord, I call to you; come quickly to  me” Ps. 141:1; II Cor 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit”).

† The Holy Spirit is always with us (John 14:16-19; Psalm 139:7-10).

†† But He comes specially and manifests special anointing for special purposes (Luke  5:17 “the power of the Lord was present to heal” implying that there were times  when the power of the Lord was not present; I Cor. 5:4 “When . . . the power of the  Lord Jesus is present”; Isa. 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon  Him while He is near”).

–WAIT–and this is hard–until you see signs of the Holy Spirit’s presence on the  person—often but not always eyelids fluttering, change in breathing, muscle spasm or rippling,  shaking, flush on skin, radiant sheen on the face, visible peace, falling, laughing, crying (“And  the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick” Luke 5:17; “Be still before the Lord  and wait patiently for him” Ps. 37:7)

–With your mind’s eye, see the healing power of Jesus as His radiant light  entering the person’s body. Whether you perceive the anointing as warmth,  tingling and electricity, as many do, or not, keep seeing in your mind’s-eye the  anointing entering the person and going to the place of infirmity (while keeping  your primary attention on Jesus), because unless there is a block of some sort  (sin, unforgiveness, anxiety, fear, unbelief), the Lord’s anointing is really going  into the person. Focus the healing anointing by asking Jesus to intensify His  power and healing light in the spot of the infirmity and by seeing Jesus’ healing  light penetrating and increasing in intensity in the exact location of the infirmity.

–Thank the Lord as an expression of faith (Ps. 22:3-4; 50:23; 2 Chron. 20:21-  23, 27): “Lord, thank you that your healing light and power is going into this  person and into the place of infirmity.” Thank the Lord whether you feel or sense  anything happening or not.

ENGAGE PRAYER AS THE SPIRIT LEADS—PETITION / COMMAND /  PRONOUNCEMENT

–Pray as the Lord leads you to, with Petition/intercession to God and/or words  from God spoken to a condition or demon or to the person (e.g. Mk. 1:25; 7:34;  Luke 4:39; Jn. 11:41-43; Acts 28:8).

–Petition/Intercession (“So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and  said, ‘Father, I thank you that you have heard me. . . .” Jn. 11:41; “His father  was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him  and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him” Acts 28:8.  –Command (“Be quiet! . . . Come out of him!” Mk. 1:25; “Be clean!” (to a  leper) Mk. 1:41; “Get up!” (to a lame man) Mk. 2:11, Jn. 5:8, Acts 9:34;  “Stretch out your hand” Mk. 3:5; “Get up” (to a dead person) Mk. 5:41, Lk.  7:14, Acts 9:40; Jesus spoke to a deaf man’s ears, “Be opened!” Mk. 7:34;  Jesus “rebuked the fever, and it left her” Lk. 4:39; “See again! (Grk.  Anablepson)” (to a blind man) Lk. 18:42; “Lazarus, come forth!” Jn. 11:43;  “Walk!” (to a lame man) Acts 3:6; “Stand up!” (to a lame man) Acts 14:10).

–The Command prayer is the most frequent type of healing prayer in the  Gospels and Acts, so expect the Lord to lead you to use the prayer of  command a lot in healing prayer.

–Maybe First command the pain to leave the person: “Pain you leave this person’s  body (arm, leg, heart, etc.) now! Obey the body and blood of Jesus! It is  written, ‘By His wounds we are healed’ (Isa. 53:5; 1 Pet. 2:24), and we  proclaim that by Jesus’ wounds this person’s body is healed in Jesus’ name.”

Don’t be afraid to command pain to leave more than once (Jesus had to pray  for the blind man more than once in Mark 8:23, 25.) Usually it leaves after 2-  3 times of command prayer.

–Then command the underlying disease (cancer, arthritis, etc.) to leave the  person—treat it like an intruder and tell it to leave and never return in Jesus’  name. Notice Jesus “rebuked” the fever in Lk 4:39 like He “rebuked” (same  Greek word) demons elsewhere (Matt. 17:18; Luke 9:42; Mark 9:25 He  rebuked the evil spirit: “You deaf and mute spirit . . . I command you, come  out of him and never enter him again!”).

–Pronouncement (“Woman, you are set free from your infirmity” Lk. 13:12;  “Your faith has healed you” Lk. 18:42; “Take your mat and go home” Mat. 9:6;  “Go . . . wash in the Pool of Siloam” Jn. 9:7; “’Go, show yourselves to the  priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed” Lk. 17:14).

DIPSTICK (CHECK THE OIL) & REMOVE ANY INNER BLOCKS

–Ask questions?? (“How are you feeling? Better? Worse?”) during prayer to find  out what the Holy Spirit is doing, for more information or redirection (“Do you  see anything?” Jesus said to a blind man during prayer Mk. 8:23; Elijah sent his  servant to the edge of Mt. Carmel seven times to see if the rain he was praying  for had come yet, James 5:18 and I Kings 18:41-44).

–Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit for insight about possible blocks to the Lord’s  healing in the person’s life–e.g., unforgiveness, anxiety and worry, fear,  unbelief, demonization, sinning which led to damaged emotions or damaged    relationships, etc. (James 5:15-16 “The prayer of faith will make the sick person  well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven; Therefore  confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be  healed”; Matt. 13:58 “And he did not do many miracles there because of their  lack of faith”; 1Cor. 11:29-30 “For anyone who eats and drinks without  recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is  why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen  asleep [died]”).

KEEP PRAYING AS THE LORD LEADS, PICTURING THE PERSON  HEALED

–Hold a detailed picture in your mind of the person completely healed (Heb.  11:13 shows that faith-picturing is a key element of faith). Ask the Lord to give  you a picture of the person healed as the Lord wants Him to be. Then hold that  picture of the person in your mind as you thank the Lord that His power and  healing anointing are accomplishing the healing: “Lord, thank you that this is  the way this person is going to be healed, because that is your will for him. We  thank you that your power is working this healing in him now and bless what  you are doing in him.”

BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS

Healing is Not Just “One of the Gifts”–Healing Shows Non-Christians and  Christians God’s Power and Love. A careful study of the Gospels and Acts  shows that one of the chief functions of healing in the New Testament is to  accompany the preaching of the gospel and to show people God’s power and  mercy. Healing is not just one of the gifts of the Spirit.

In the New  Testament, healing ministry is a primary tool alongside preaching God’s  Kingdom to show those who don’t know God as well as God’s people the  power of Jesus’ cross to forgive their sins and restore them to the life of God:  Mat. 4:23; 9:35-36; 10:1, 7-8; 11:5; 12:15, 18; 15:30; 19:2 (cf. Mk. 10:1); 21:14  (cf. Lk. 21:37); Mk. 1: 38-39; 2:2, 11; 3:14-15; 6:12-13; 10:1 (cf. Mat. 19:2); Lk.  4:18; 5:17, 24; 6:6-11, 17-18; 7:22; 9:1-2; 10:9, 13; 13:10-13, 22, 32; 14:4, 7ff.;  21:37 (cf. Mat. 21:14); 16:15-18, 20; Jn. 3:2; 7:14-15, 21-23, 31, 38; 10:25, 32,  38; 12:37, 49; 14:10, 12; Acts 1:1; 2:22; 3:6, 12; 4:29-30; 5:12-16, 20-21, 28,  42; 6:8, 10; 8:4-7, 12; 9:17-18 (cf. 22:13), 34-35; 10:38; 14:3, 8-10, 15ff.; 15:12,  36; 18:5, 11 (cf. II Cor. 12:12; I Cor. 2:4-5); 19:8-12; Rom. 15:18-19; I Cor. 2:4-  5; 11:1; 12:1-11, 28-31; 14:22-25; II Cor. 12:12; Gal. 3:5; Phil. 4:9; I Thes.  1:5-6; Heb. 2:3-4; 6:1-2; Jas. 5:13-16.

Embracing God’s General and Specific Will concerning Healing  Scripture clearly shows that as a general rule it is God’s will to heal the sick.  James 5:15 says “the prayer of faith will heal (Greek future indicative) the  sick” not “the prayer of faith may or may not heal the sick.” And the overall  witness of the New Testament regarding God’s attitude toward healing shows  that God desires to heal. Any reader of the Gospels knows that God’s Son  healed the sick. Acts and the Epistles show that the apostles and Early  Church laity healed the sick (Stephen, Philip, Ananias, the Corinthians,  Galatians, Jewish Christian churches, etc.; E.g., Acts 3:6, 12; 4:29-30; 5:12-  16, 20-21, 28, 42; 6:8, 10; 8:4-7, 12; 9:17-18 (cf. 22:13), 34-35; 14:3, 8-10,  15ff.; 15:12, 36; 18:5, 11(cf. II Cor. 12:12; I Cor. 2:4-5); 19:8-12. Rom. 15:18-  19; I Cor. 2:4-5; 11:1; 12:1-11, 28-31; II Cor. 12:12; Gal. 3:5; Phil. 4:9; I Thes.  1:5-6; Heb. 2:3-4; 6:1-2; Jas. 5:13-16.). God gave the church gifts of healing  (I Cor. 12:9). As well, He commands the church to pray for the sick in  James 5:14-16.

So we know from all this evidence that as a rule, God  desires to heal the sick. Scripture also makes it clear that in a minority of  cases for various reasons the early church did not always see all the sick  healed (2 Tim. 4:20; Phil. 2:26-27; 1 Tim. 5:23; Gal. 4:13-14). If we  read about the prayer of faith that makes the sick person well in James  5:14-18, we find that the way that Elijah listened to God’s immediate word  and then prayed in 1 Kings 18, is an example of the prayer of faith that will  make the sick person well. Elijah first heard the prophetic word of God in 1  Kings 18:1 that God was going to send rain, and then in 1 Kings 18:41-45  Elijah actually prayed for the rain that God said He was going to send. So the  faith that heals the sick involves hearing what God wants to do in prayer for  the sick person and praying that out over the sick person until we see the  fullness of healing manifested in their body, just as Elijah prayed until he saw  the rain finally begin to come.

DIVINE HEALING TOOLBOX

JAMES 5:14-18  1. Remove blockages by confessing your sins one to another (Jas.  5:14-18): Each person in the group (prayer ministers and person being  prayed for) is to focus on Jesus with the eyes of your heart. Fix your  eyes on Jesus and ask Him if there is anything that is blocking His  healing power from flowing to you.

Receive His response back by tuning  to spontaneous thoughts and pictures (For help learning to hear God’s  voice, go to http://www.cwgministries.org/Free-Christian-Books-and-Articles.htm  and  click on “The Four Keys to Hearing God’s Voice.”). Make sure you are  living a healthy lifestyle, which includes a nutritious diet, regular  exercise, fasting/cleansing and stress-free living. Confess your sins  based on what you receive. Learn to confess your sins moment by  moment so you stand clean before the Lord. This group stance of  humility and holiness releases God’s power.

The foundation for healing is entering God’s presence: The Lord  said to one Christian colleague of Dr. Virkler’s, “First you must practice  My presence. Then we’ll talk. My presence is really more important than  My words. The healing takes place while in My presence.” Become  Christ-conscious by worshipping Christ in your spirit. See Jesus  transfigured in God’s light (Matt. 17:1-8). Ask for, see and release His  healing power, which can be seen as light, and felt as heat and tingling.  His power to heal is released through His presence.

Discover and deal with the root cause of the infirmity: Have the  sick person, pray, “Holy Spirit, please show me the root cause of this  sickness in my body.” (His body, his memory and the Holy Spirit within  him know exactly what the root of the sickness is.) Then instruct him to  quiet himself and tune to the voice and vision of God (i.e., spontaneous
thoughts and spontaneous pictures) and share with you what comes to  him. Apply the appropriate prayer.

Assume three parts to healing prayer: (removing pain, casting  out demons, restoring body parts)  Speak to the pain to be removed. It is easy, builds faith once the  person being prayed for feels some pain leave, and removes this distraction from the person being prayed for.  Firmly command the specific afflicting demons to be loosed. Assume  demons in most/all situations. Demons were frequently involved in the  conditions Jesus healed, as is suggested by comparing the summary  description in Mark 1:39 with the parallel summary statement of Matt.  4:23:  Mark 1:39 “So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their  synagogues and driving out demons.”   Matt. 4:23 “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their  synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing  every disease and sickness among the people.”  Speak lovingly and specifically to the damaged body parts to be  restored to their normal function.

Receive divine revelation: As you see Jesus and watch His healing  power and light pour into a person, ask Him to show you exactly what  needs to be healed and how He wants to heal it. Receive His answer by  tuning to spontaneous thoughts and pictures, and act in obedience on  what He is telling you. Engage the prayer-type that the Spirit leads you  to–petition, command, or pronouncement.

Team up for greater revelation: Two or three prayer ministers who  are all open to God showing them any keys to removing blocks and  sharing what they are receiving with the group which then acts upon it,  will generally widen the reception of divine revelation and very quickly  break the yoke of the infirmity, restoring the person to health.  

Powerful prayers which detach demons: Person being prayed for  and prayer counselors stay tuned to flow and act upon impressions to  pray in any of the following ways:

Forgiving anyone God brings to  mind;

Confessing any sins God brings to mind;

Breaking  generational sins and curses;

Severing ungodly soul ties;

Replacing  negative beliefs;

Renouncing inner vows;

Breaking word curses;

Receiving inner healing through seeing visions of Jesus in the memory;

Casting out demons. All of these can be covered systematically with a  “Contributing Strands Worksheet” found at http://www.cwgministries.org/Freebooks.htm and see Dr. Mark Virkler and Dr. Patti Virkler’s book, Prayers that Heal the Heart (Bridge-Logos, 2001), for full discussion of these issues.

Anoint with oil: Use oil that has been prayed over for an impartation of  divine healing power (James 5:14-15).

Intensify the flow of healing power by seeing: Ask for and see  Jesus’ divine healing light and power radiating onto and into the person;  see it focused on the infirmity, and thank the Lord that the anointing is  being released and entering the body.

Give a divine radiation treatment: Have a group of two to five people  keep their hands (both hands – so an spiritual circuit is completed) on  a sick person for 10-20 minutes releasing God’s power/light into him.

Get feedback regularly: Ask the person how he or she feels (better,  same, worse), and respond as necessary. Learn again from your own personal past experiences too.

See it done: Hold in your mind a detailed faith-picture of the person  healed and say, “Thank You, Lord. That is the way it is going to be,  because Your power is healing this person.

(1 Tim 5:22 KJV)  Lay hands suddenly on no man,

Estrangement

SEA (2)

MANY PEOPLE MAKE IDOLS OF THEIR FAMILY.

Funny how so many persons want others to be prefect, when nobody is, especially them.

The phrase “family ” has become shorthand for a focus on a married-couple family with children. The high rate of divorces these days defies the deeply held notion that family relationships can’t be dissolved and suggest that estrangement is not all that uncommon. Assuming that every relationship between a parent and child will last a lifetime is as simplistic as assuming every couple will never split up. Anyway our first priority is to love God

TOO MANY PERSONS AS WELL ARE LOVING, KIND TO FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY DURING THE HOLIDAYS, SUCH AS THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS.. It’s the classic image of the holidays: Parents, siblings and their children gather around the family table to feast and catch up on one another’s lives. But it doesn’t always exist that way.

It is also a Myth is that Estrangement Happens Suddenly. It’s usually a long, drawn-out process rather than a single blowout. The relationship tends to erode over time, not overnight. The estrangement tend to occur across years and decades. Many relationships are based on myths, our false expectations from the relationship.

” Some adults choose to stop talking to their parents or returning home for family gatherings. Parents, In laws may disapprove of a person so intensely that he or she is no longer welcome home. All the hurt and betrayals, all the things that accumulate, undermine a person’s sense of original trust so even some spouses choose to stop talking to their partners. Family Estrangement, rupture has become too common.

Estrangement can be defined as one or more relatives intentionally choosing to end contact with another because of an ongoing negative relationship, even a conflict of interests. Often achieving this new distance is hard, but maintaining distance is harder. Some adult children no longer made an effort to fulfill expectations of the daughter-son role, such as the person who after some years with no contact with a father, declined to visit him in the hospital or to attend his funeral. Still others chose to limit conversations with a family member to superficial small talk or reduce the amount of contact. In our culture, there’s a ton of guilt caused by not forgiving your family member, others.

In a survey 8 percent of adults said that they had cut off a family member. And 19 percent of respondents reported that another relative or they themselves were no longer in contact with family. Multiple factors appear to come into play.

The reasons for the rupture fell into different categories. Difference in religious views may cause a religious persecution, rejections or even serious differences in personal goals. A the son or daughter may chose between the spouse and a parent or someone else. Or the adult child was punishing the parent for “perceived wrongdoing” not just a difference in values. Or even additional ongoing stressors like domestic violence, divorce, unemployment, betrayal (keeping secrets or sabotaging them), poor parenting or failing health, symbols of “cumulative disrespect”.

Many family estrangements followed childhoods in which they had already had poor connections with parents who were physically or emotionally unavailable.

Politicians help also to dissolve the family. A politician has one major goal: to get elected and stay elected. Ergo, many politicians appeal to the emotions and ethical choices of mainstream values. The conflict here is between those who are for or against families, or even “family values,”

The too common abusive silent treatment is a common result of an estrangement. This is a clear attempt at ignoring you, even for days or weeks and is a sign of a mental abuse, bullying. This type of response is a common and immoral act by selfish, spoiled, self centered persons. Anything that they now next can do to upset you, to get you guessing about why too, or to make you think that you have done something wrong, have them is their basic approach, motive. We tend talk to those people we love, and reject, ignore, divorce those people we hate. No question about it.

The silent treatment is a definite, bullying, abusive, calculated form of power control over others and also a pre calculated mind game that the abuser falsely plays on their victims .

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” .. So clearly these immoral Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others have a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth, most likely related to past personal unresolved guilt, as a result of that the bully, he or she, tries falsely to build their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against his proclaimed enemies, which too often also is most of the people now , for he or she no longer trust anyone.

Abuse is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt, and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others. Persons who use this approach tend to escalate next to other forms of abuses also to get their way. I have seen this type of wrong behavior too often. These bad people do need to find a better way for their anger management.

John 13: 34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

The Verbal abuse is a also a kind of battering which doesn’t leave evidence like physical abuse does. However, it can be just as painful, and recovery can take much longer. The victim of abuse lives in a gradually more confusing realm. In public she is with one man, in private he becomes another. Often, for the verbally abused woman (man), there is no witness to her reality and no one to understand her experiences. Friends and family continue to see her ex, the abuser, as a really good guy and, certainly, he agrees with them. The verbal abuser, while maintaining his charm with others, always takes his abuse behind closed doors. It is a means of holding power over his wife( husband) /partner.. Many women and some men leave a marriage and come back into the singles’ world with the diminished self-esteem that comes from a verbally abusive relationship. The fact that many of these women (men) have never even realized that they were being abused, makes it easy for them to enter another abusive relationship.

A verbal abuser is an insecure person and immature person who is looking for power and control over another.In order to help you recognize abuse, remember that all forms of verbal abuse are methods of manipulating you for the purpose of establishing power over you.

I know that this forced submission emphasis, demands are a false attempts by these overly perverse, ambitious, crooked persons, bad pastors, unfaithful spouses, bad relatives, and bad religious persons now included too, for these persons and mere persons who do want now by such means to attempt to self prosper, to grow richer, to advance themselves over others still have have no good concerns for me. They are slave drivers. Slavery was abolished a long time ago too.

The following are some of the forms of verbal abuse you CAN recognize.

Withholding: a purposeful, silent treatment.

Countering: a countering of your ideas, feelings, and perceptions, even going so far as to refute what he misconstrues you to have said.

Discounting–a putdown of you or something you hold dear.

Blocking and diverting–this is a sneaky, covert way of violating your dignity.

Accusation and blame: generally involves lies about the partner’s intentions, attitudes, and motives. The author states that accusation and blame is present in all verbally abusive relationships.

Judging and criticizing: lies about your personal qualities and performance.

Trivializing and undermining: abusive behavior which makes light of your work, your efforts, your interests, or your concerns. The abuser attempts to dilute meaning and value in your life. Undermining might occur when your partner laughs at you, for example, when you burn yourself cooking. It is also jokes at your expense. Undermining is occurring when you feel a “so-called joke” is mean rather than funny.

Name calling: no one has a right to call you degrading names. Name calling is verbal abuse.

Ordering: Telling you to do something, rather than asking, or making decisions for you or for the two of you without your input.

Forgetting and denial: the trickiest form of denial is forgetting. Become aware that forgetting is a form of denial that shifts all responsibility from the abuser to some “weakness of mind.”

Abusive anger: this seems to be closely linked to the need to “blow up,” to dominate, to control, to go one up, and to put down. Any time you are snapped at or yelled at, you are being abused.

Threatening: Physical threats and sexual threats aside, verbal threats are an effort at manipulation. For example, a threat to leave, stay out all night, or take you home immediately is a manipulation for power. The threat of “pending disaster” is designed to shatter the partner’s serenity as well as her boundaries.

If you counter the abuser or attempt to explain yourself, you will probably be met with such statements as, “I don’t want to hear it, get out of my face” or “Woman you don’t have the brains“, “B” You shouldn’t have said that to me“.

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over.

God himself accepts no abuses by anyone, not even by pastors…

(Jer 9:5 KJV) And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

(Jer 9:8 KJV) Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.

(James 4:7 KJV) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Any person cannot still fight with you of you leave his or her presences, even forever.. and there is still a good life after a failed marriage now too.

Matthew 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

THERE IS A VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL POLICE.. being quiet is not good enough,

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T EVEN FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET.

First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others. Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing so for decades too..

I OFTEN SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT. WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER.

It is absurd for any person to even imply there is no sin, or that God now, next punishes no one here on earth, or after for any of their sins, or to say that that they the sinners are merely punishing themselves, God does have higher laws too, the laws he has designed with negative consequences for their violations undeniably as well. The negative Consequences are not by chance, or unrelated to God. Even the new Testament still says people reap here on earth what they have sowed and God punishes people for their unrepentant sins. (Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 ) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Jer 17:5 Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in {and} relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, and whose mind {and} heart turn aside from the Lord. 6 For he shall be like a shrub {or} a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. 7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, {and} relies on the Lord, and whose hope {and} confidence the Lord is. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see {and} fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious {and} full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit. 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse {and} corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]?

Jer 17:10 I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.

Anyone doubt this, look at God’s Punishment of the Apostle Paul specially for his past abuse of the Christians now too. I know from observing others that one’s abusing a Christian can lead to one’s early death. I have found the best way not to get abused anymore is to rightfully not to associate with the abuser anymore, after exposing their abuse to them and others, till they really do repent of it, and a clearly Biblical approach according to the Bible Book of Corinthians now too.

I put my trust in God and not in man.. We submit ourselves solely to God, to Jesus and the Holy Spirit.. who guides us, leads us into all truth. All friendship, relationship, submission not just in marriages in real life now too is reciprocal, and unenforced. Jesus Christ is still the head of the Church, Churches!

Let me be very clear about that Jesus has set me free, now I am a slave to no man but to Jesus Christ himself, alone. I serve no man, especially any of the clearly foolish, perverted ones, and I take orders from no man, I do not have to do what they desire or try to command me to do at any time too. No matter if they still do wrongfully think otherwise too. I am still only God’s slave and not any man’s.
.
Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

(Eccl 7:9 KJV) Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
.
(Jonah 4:4 KJV) Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
.
(Eph 4:26 KJV) Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
.
(Mal 2:16 KJV) For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

(1 John 2:11 KJV) But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
.
(1 John 3:15 KJV) Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Matthew 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

“Honor your father and mother,” Christ commands, and “love” your neighbor. But leave your parents, siblings and spouse to follow me – even if you must “hate” them in order to DO SO. Do not even stop, Jesus tells one follower, to bury your own father.

In one scene recounted in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus denies that members of his own immediate family deserve a special audience with him, declaring that his real family is the community of believers.

Psalms 70: 2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6

devil (1)

Indeed, all who are willing to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.  2 Timothy 3:12   

Jesus said, “In truth, I tell you, there is no one who has left behind a house or brothers or sisters or a mother or a father or children or fields for My sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred-fold more in this present time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children – with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life.” Mark 10:29-30

MANY BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIAN PEOPLE EVEN DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THE DEVIL, THEY UNDERESTIMATE, NEGLECT HIM WITH NEGATIVE PERSONAL CONSEQUENCES.

“The world that Adam and Eve entered after their expulsion from the garden of Eden could not have been more different from the perfect environment they had so recently taken for granted. Instead of abundant prosperity, ready at hand, they had entered a world of limitation, shortage and scarcity. Instead of a world where all their needs were instantly provided for without any effort on their part, back-breaking toil was now necessary for survival, and uncertainty for the future entered into the equation. Life was now a matter of pain, sweat, tears and trouble. Our first parents would also now experience for the first time the full gamut of destructive and sinful emotions, including fear, jealousy and hostility. The domestic tranquility that had reigned in Eden as a matter of course would now be infected by anger, frustration, bitterness and resentment. Their is no doubt that the Lord God had not visited upon them a swift and fiery judgment, Adam and Eve would have been anything but comforted by the harsh realities of the new world east of Eden into which they were forced following their eviction from the garden. This, next assuredly, was no paradise. Life was no longer wonderful, especially in contrast to the bounty so recently lost. Everything was now flawed, and strangely unsatisfying. The pain, the privation, the decay and corruption – and more than the anything else the absence of God – must have driven home the contrast to Eden. this is not a paradise designed by God for our happiness and pleasure.

On the contrary, this is the devil’s world. Satan’s world now of deep unhappiness is essentially corrupt is a truism evident at life’s every turn. Everything decays. Nothing good lasts. Sin and evil are ubiquitous. Only God is truly meaningful here on earth, if we would but search for Him. Only Jesus Christ offers a solution to the futility of life and the inevitability of death, if only we would believe in Him. We wait next for something better as homeless wanderers in a world which finds our perspective and our hope worthless, even idiotic. But by our faith and the actions that faith produces, we show the world that we are not of it, we do not love it, and acknowledge that we have no true part in it – except for the God who is the focus and the object of our love all the days of our sojourning here in the devil’s inhospitable desert (cf. 1Chron.29:15; Ps.23:1-6; 39:12; 63:1; 84:5-7; 119:19; Heb.11:37-38; 11:13-16; 13:13-14; 1Pet.1:1; 2:11).”

The race is not to the swift, or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise, or wealth to the brilliant, or favor to the learned, but time and chance happen to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11

Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them.  Ecclesiastes 9:12

Don’t stock up treasures for yourselves on the earth, where moth and corrosion eat them away and where thieves dig through and steal them. But stock up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor corrosion eat them away and where thieves neither dig through nor steal them. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro: He bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it. Psalm 39:6

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you”. Hebrews 13:5 

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  Matthew 6

Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him – for this is his lot. Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy (lit. eat) them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work – this is a gift of God. He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart. Ecclesiastes 5:18-21 

Christians  avoid a pair of assumptions which are equally dangerous: 1) that affluence is necessarily a sign that God is blessing us, and therefore, if we are wealthy, that we must be doing just fine in our spiritual lives.   It would be a mistake, therefore, to assume that affluence is any indication of spiritual maturity.

2) that the result of spiritual growth and a prosperous relationship with God is necessarily material wealth (i.e., the “prosperity gospel”). In fact, the opposite effect is certainly not without precedent, that is, the spiritually mature encountering greater testing on this score (e.g., consider Job’s trials, or Elijah’s privations).

Morbid over-emphasis on material prosperity has always been an occupational hazard of the human race in general, and,  a threat to Christian spiritual growth.

I know your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold. Would that you were cold or hot. But as it is, since you are tepid, and neither hot nor cold, I am on the point of vomiting you out of my mouth. For you say [to yourself], “I am rich, and have become wealthy and have no need [of anything]!” But you do not realize that you are the one who is wretched and pitiful and poor and blind and naked. So my advice to you is to buy gold from Me that has been refined in the fire (so that you may become rich), and white clothing (so that you may be [properly] dressed and not have your shameful nakedness exposed), and medicinal salve to treat your eyes (so that you may see [the situation accurately]). Revelation 3:15-18

But whatever I had gained [in my former godless life], compared to Christ I have come to consider these things as losses. Indeed, I consider everything to be a loss compared to the surpassing importance of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of everything, and consider [everything I have lost] as garbage, compared to gaining Christ, and being found in Him – not having a personal righteousness [developed] through [following] the [Mosaic] law – but having that righteousness [that comes] through faith in Christ, that righteousness [that comes] from God based on faith. Philippians 3:7-9

“Whenever you try to accomplish anything significant for the Lord, you will face strong opposition. Satan never bothers with half-hearted people who are content with a ho-hum spiritual existence. But if you come on fire for Christ, look out! The name “Satan” means “adversary”; he is committed to opposing God and His people, especially when they are zealous to exalt God’s glory. . As long as you live with one foot in the world, living according to the world’s values and for the world’s goals, Satan won’t trouble you. You can go to church and even pray and read your Bible, and he won’t mind. But the minute you wake up from your spiritual lethargy, shake off the worldly mindset, and commit yourself to radical obedience to Jesus Christ, you will encounter spiritual opposition! ”

devil (12)

Beloved, don’t be amazed at the fiery ordeal of testing you are now undergoing, as if something out of the ordinary were happening to you. But to the degree that you are [truly] participating in Christ’s sufferings, be joyful about it, so that at His glorious revelation, you may also rejoice with great gladness.  1st Peter 4:12-13

Brothers, when you are being beset with all manner of trials, take pains to be joyful. For you should keep in mind that this testing of your faith develops perseverance. So let your perseverance develop fully, that you may become fully mature and entitled to a full reward, having been found lacking in no respect. James 1:2-4

Evil spirits are entities that at some point had a physical body. Unlike evil spirits, demons never had a physical body. They come straight from hell. They are master munipulators. Demons can present themselves however they choose in order to gain the trust of certain individuals. They are very powerful forces to be reckoned with. Demons can possess an individual, which means they can completely take over the person and make them do anything they want.

Yes the enemy will oppose you. He will use the anger of others against you or Satan hauls out another tool: Mockery and sarcasm. Satan frequently uses ridicule against those who take a stand for the Lord Or Threats and intimidation. Satan still uses subtle or overt threats and intimidation to oppose Christians. Or discouragement and exhaustion. Some People have lost the initial zeal and they feel like quitting. or Negativism. Or Fear .Satan uses fear to paralyze God’s people and keep them from attempting anything significant for the Lord. How should we respond to such opposition? Keep your mind focused on the Lord.

Know God’s words and apply them.” He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory  Ephesians 1:5-12

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them  Ephesians 2:1-10

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in theworld.10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5 :8 -11

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. . 1 Corinthians 10: 21

You serve God or you serve the devil.

And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.37    Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,38    And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.39    Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.40    Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.41    And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.42    Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand Psalms 106

.

But even all Christians now still do have major problems in life.. for there is a real devil who troubles us personally all of our life and we we are to resist him in the faith. Christ has already defeated Satan.

.

(Mark 16:17 KJV)  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.

.

When we praise God with the remaining breath in us He will come down and flush the devil out for us and rescue us from the den of lions. God is always for us and with us and every time we’re shut in and there seems to be no way out, we are just to praise God.  Whereas angels attend to prayer, God personally attends to praise (Psalm. 22:3).

Every prayer requires some form of angelic intervention for the answer to be delivered. Prayers are made to God, but the answers are passed down through angels. But praise is superior to prayer. How do I know? Whereas angels attend to prayers, God personally attends to praises; and that makes the difference. When God attends to anything, we can be sure of who wins. Every time  God rises in our favor, the victory is won. Praise is what makes God rise from His holy habitation; it is what triggers off the intervention of the Omnipotent God. And when God steps in, every devil bows out.

.

It’s time to praise God down into every tight issue of our life. When we begin to sing and praise God, He sets ambushment against our enemies (2 Chronicles. 20:22-25). It is praise that makes our battle change hands. God will always take over our battles when we praise Him. God’s word is unchanging:

.

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on them the written judgment- This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD! Psalm 149:6-9

.
There is no situation in our life that will take more than praise to bow. This is because praise brings God into any situation, and whatever cannot stop God cannot stop it. Why? When we pray, God answers; but when we praise, He steps in, in all His glory, might, power and awesomeness. If we want to secure God’s company in the midst of any conflict, we must just release ourselves to praise, and He will be there in person. When God comes on the spot, every devil gives way!

.
I will extol You, my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. Psalm 145:1-3

.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! Psalm 150:6

.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
