OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Twisting the Bible now to suit one’s desires is still a sin.

Most all of you have had to contend with control freaks, men and women haters and they are found everywhere, at work, , at home, in churches, on the net too.. These are those people who insist on having their way in all interactions with you. They wish to set the agenda and to falsely decide what it is you will do and when you will do it. You know who they are – they have a driving need to run the show and call the shots. Lurking within the fabric of the conversation is the clear threat that if you do not accede to their needs and demands, they will be unhappy.. and they will bash you, not talk to you or will delete your posts…

.

In our Christians Churches now too many false persons have crept in lying, distorting the truths under the guise of free speech, helping others. These bad people with their hidden agendas they do not tell the whole truth, not about themselves for a start as well. Control freaks or Bullies, abusers, wrongfully do cause others stress so they can maintain a false sense of order. These people themselves firstly are are still riddled mostly with anxiety, fear, insecurity, and anger. They’re very critical of themselves their lover and their friends, but underneath all that still too that supposedly perfect outfit and great body is a mountain of real unhappiness, unresolved guilt, disturbed person. The need to control is almost always fueled by anxiety – though control freaks seldom recognize their fears. At work, they may worry about failure. In relationships, they may worry about not having their needs met. To keep this anxiety from overwhelming them, they try to control the people or things around them. They have a hard time with negotiation and compromise and they can’t stand imperfection. Needless to say, they are difficult to live with, work with and/or socialize with.

.

If you are a Control freak you are not only still unrealistic, immature, immoral person but you may have a serious personality disorder. You are a menace, plus a real danger to yourself and to others, for you are an abuser, a human rights violator too. Having clearly now an exaggerated emphasis of their own self importance, being totally in control is part of a cluster of behaviors that can be labeled as compulsive and generally characterized by perfectionism, orderliness, workaholic tendencies, an inability to make positive commitments, to trust others and a real cover-up for their fear of having their own flaws exposed. All these type of Persons who believe they can protect themselves by staying in control of every aspect of their lives, or of others, including their relationships are idiots, fools, grossly in error, in need of professional help, good pastoral counseling.

.

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” .. clearly these immoral Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth, most likely related to past 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 people , for he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this 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.

.

Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest. Certainly, it’s natural to want to be in control of your life. But when you have to be in control of the people around you as well, well you have gone crazy, become a fool, a demonic controlled person who can’t rest until you get your way and you are headed down a very bumpy ride, it is easier to try to control yourself, and impossible to control all the others.
.
(1 Cor 9:27 KJV) But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
.
Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, bad persons, bad pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, preach liberty, democracy, claim they are 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

.

Pastors don’t have authority over people they are to feed the sheep and care for them, where does it say that they have authority over people this is a demonic doctrine pushed onto the church by Evangelicals, Catholics, others.All submission is voluntary and not enforced

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too.

.

Now about the Evangelicals, Plymouth Brethren, Baptists so called rather still ignorant Christians I find it so absurd that these people still tend to not know what the Bible teaches, they believe their churches false teachings on healing, Zionism, Dispensationalism, tithing, accepting false abuse, male superiority, etc.

.

All these gifted persons to the Church by Jesus Christ, the , Apostles, Prophets, evangelist, pastors, teachers, now also are existing now these days for the Greek term God gave means actual he continues to give to the church, yes  the tense is continual present and they were mutually, willingly submissive one to another in the church.. unlike too often rather today.

.

And when was the last time you now even saw a Pastor submissive to the other church elders, rather it seems these day the pastor, often only singularly too, he wrongfully tries to force the elders to be under their submission alone which is clearly a non New Testament approach too.
.
The other reason we clearly do not see these God equipped persons wrongfully in most churches, is firstly because they now have put the wrong persons in the potions, rather too often unspiritual , unqualified persons in reality and they need to now change this drastically too.

.

I was really still surprised to note how many pastors are often fired from their jobs, for God still does fire bad pastors even these days, rightfully too.

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too. Church leadership today is often still adultery, cheating, stealing, farcical

As far as I am concerned a Women can be a Church Pastor if she has God or her husband”s permission.. and even the vice president of the United States, or a President. We can use more Women for it has been too clearly evident that the men have not being doing a good enough job visibly According to my reading of the scriptures the term Pastor is always plural, not singular, meaning there are too be many pastors in any local church, and pastors have to submit to the gifted elders, who are the apostles- missionaries and prophets- appointed by God as his spokesman or to  women such as Julia note worthy amongst the apostles. And unto the church now as well , but most pastors tend to deny the existence of these God ordained, given offices even today, even cause they themselves are rebels who wrongfully refuse to submit to others and submission is mutual- meaning reciprocal.. and also note this it is always still voluntarily, unenforceable..

.

Give me the direct verse that says women are called only to be evangelists The word missionary has the same root in Greek as apostle; both mean one sent forth. Today’s missionary is only a true apostle if he has been sent specifically by God, and if this apostolic authority is operating in his ministry. “The word apostle in the Greek is apostollos or “one sent forth” as an ambassador of the Gospel. An apostle is a minister sent directly by God to do a specific work. A number of the saints of God and even Jesus himself were called apostles in the New Testament. The Apostle is defined as a messenger, and yet the same description is almost given to the Evangelist too, the difference is the word special is added to the Apostle.. Even the office of elders is mis-defined today, and is limited to being pastors, and spiritual guides, when we all can know that in the new testament, the apostles, and prophets, were also called elders now.,.. not just the pastors or evangelists, teachers.. In the he New testament Evangelists, plural term too, they were also healers, not just preachers, traveling missionaries. Read the Bible for yourself and see this fact, truth. (Rom 16:7 KJV) Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Imagine that Junia is a woman, and is proclaimed to be an additional apostle as well…

.

And there were more than 12 apostles as well ..Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. . .Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. (1 Thessalonians 2:6, KJV). Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellow helper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers [Greek – apostelos] of the churches, and the glory of Christ. (2 Corinthians 8:23, KJV). 2 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds. (2 Corinthians 12:12, KJV). Don’t let anyone tell you apostles and prophets died off with the twelve of the early Church. Because apostles and prophets are ministers who do not draw attention to themselves, they often don’t protest this teaching, but the Bible does.

.

Has God called pastors to be CEOs of religious organizations, or has he called men to be spiritual leaders over the churches of Christ? Neither… the elders run the church, and pastors are just one of the many church elders.. Even if she is a woman,, BASED ON ISOLATED, DISTORTED VERSES SOME PERSONS WOULD HAVE US MAKE a false Positive Confession of our faith. God still Is Not A Respecter of Persons is a truth we need to always remember too   https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/kathryn-kuhlman/

.

Has God decreed that men must always rule women?  The false Christians, claim obedience to the Word of God. These ignorant ones only  think that St. Paul forbade women to speak in public, and that he discountenanced women teachers of the Bible.  https://cityocean.wordpress.com/2010/09/03/magna-charta-of-woman-by-jessie-penn-lewis/
.
Now it was interesting I had met this really crooked head elder and head deacon in a Baptist church, not just in the Pentecostal churches, where there too the elders and deacons, tend to be pretentious ones too ( for when was the last time you saw an elder giving food, money to the poor persons in the church as was done in the book of Acts?) .. even such as the one who was an elder and owned a bar that served alcohol of all things.. and told me if I come to his church he would call the police against me, but the same church I next helped to close down, I had the federal government remove their tax exempt license after I had exposed in writing to news editors, elected officials too their much too many unacceptable abuses, money thefts, slanders, etc.,
.
A Baptist pastor had cheated, for he had short circuited the selection process, he had the nominating committee before any selection submit the names to him for his prior approval of their supposedly spiritual qualifications and he elected his bad friends.. one Sunday evening as I was leaving the church and shaking hands with the pastor, he unexpectedly said to me ” this is my church and if you do not like it get out”.. shocked and surprised I said to the pastor if I have offended you let me meet you this week Tuesday night and you can bring any two witnesses you ant as well and we can discuss the matter. he agreed and I knew that he would bring the head elder and the head deacons.. as I walked into the pastor’s office on Tuesday day night, the founding church pastor said immediately to me wipe the smirk of your face.. so I immediately  said..  hey pastor let us make this quick, Did you or did you not say to me this is my church and if you do not like it get out? you should have seen the shock on the deacon and elder’s face. The pastor seeing this too next said you cannot hear any charges form this man for I am a senior and if you listen to him I will resign. I said pastor if you want to resign, do so, but cut of the emotional black main and answer the question.. he resigned instead, and became a life insurance salesman rather next..

.

Truth of every kind makes free, while lies bind up in bonds. Ignorance also binds up, because it gives ground to Satan. Man’s ignorance is a primary and essential condition for deception by evil spirits. The ignorance of the people of God concerning the powers of darkness, has made it easy for the devil to carry out his work as deceiver. Unfallen man in his pure state was not perfect in knowledge. Eve was ignorant of “good and evil,” and her ignorance was a condition which lent itself to the deception of the serpent

«MOST people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about  what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too. There really is no true light in them. They are religious but have a god shaped void still.. Sadly it seems to apply to 70 percent of the  professing Christians and their poor pastors, And many of them have false, misleading internet sites just to show off, try to falsely be popular. They are mostly empty wells and it easy too  to spot themKing James Bible  These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.  Undeniably Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Bible ignorant persons often lie and preach their own false agendas. false doctrines in churches, on the net.. and the main reason for that still is that MOST of them have not been called directly to preach , or to teach by God and they are doing so mostly for money, power, personal fame, recognition, slave hood and demonic influence even..

world

70 Percent or higher of Churchgoers in North America are not Christians. They tend to still do, act as the secular non Christians in reality.

Religion in Canada encompasses a wide range of groups and beliefs. Christianity is the largest religion in Canada, with Roman Catholics having the most adherents. Christians, representing 67.3% of the population, are followed by people having no religion with 23.9% of the total population.

29% of Americans consider themselves to be a born-again Christian. Overall, 1 in 4 Americans today consider themselves to be evangelicals. But less than half actually hold valid evangelical beliefs. According to a 2017 study by the Public Religion Research Institute, approximately 69% of the Americans identified themselves as Christians, with 45% professing attendance at a variety of churches that could be considered Protestant, and 20% professing Catholic beliefs..  The largest denomination of Christianity in the United States is Roman Catholics which does not deny the trinity, the birth, death, Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The modern Christianity espouses the name of Christ but adheres to few of His teachings.  Christianity  centers on the matter of who will be God. It is a battle over “whether man will be god or whether God will be God.”

Sadly most of those who remain a part of today’s organized Christianity end up just “playing church”—claiming to be Christian while living like a non-believer. “Our churches are not ‘the pillar and ground of the truth’ (I Timothy 3:15, KJV); they are centers of social interaction, recreation, and feel-good indoctrination. Preachers are not reprovers, rebukers, and exhorters (II Timothy 4:2); they are ear-ticklers, entertainers, and expositors of irrelevance…. The result: ineffective, impotent, weak, unprepared, and sheepish Christians.”  Much of today’s mainstream church are “the opiate of entertainment and feel-good-ism,” led by  “hirelings in the pulpit [that] lust after ease and social acceptance”; and  they willfully and blindly “bask in their ignorance.  “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.” 90 percent of pastors agree that the Bible speaks about all of today’s key political issues; and helping the poor and needy, but only 10 percent of them are willing to address these issues to their congregations. The pastors are  more concerned about being ‘successful’ than they are about being truthful.

There are now also much too many cultural Christians or those who “believe” themselves to be Christians simply because their culture says they are. But, clearly, they are not. There are also the true Christians who are actually living their faith.

In the churches there’s the glaring problem of premarital sex, abortion. Divorce, getting rich even, sensuality  among  even the self-professed Christians. “For with their mouth they show much love”—again, they say all the right things, they sound like Christians—“but their heart goes after their covetousness” (Ezek. 33:30-31).  Many of them are currently “in an adulterous, sexual relationship,” with only 12 percent claiming to have never had sex before marriage. So much for biblical mandated abstinence!   https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/01/16/divorce-abortions-polygamy-adultery-are-immoral-as-being-gay/

Too many Christians are tired of dealing with a guilty conscience, so they drop their full Christian commitment. Most of the lifestyle activities of born-again Christians were statistically equivalent to those of non-Christians. What happened to believers not being conformed to this world, but being transformed by a renewed mind (Rom. 12:2)? What about putting on the “new man” created in righteousness and holiness (Eph. 4:24)? What about developing the mind of Christ (Phil. 2:5), overcoming sin and the world’s influence (I John 2:13-14; Rev. 2:26; etc.)? Today’s so-called Christianity, a counterfeit “religious experience, is based largely on carefully selected Bible passages  that are also  twisted to make them appear to teach a “soft Christianity”, free of persecutions, —a costless “faith” void of works and indifferent to clear biblical teachings on life, morality.   https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/01/20/a-fool-the-wicked-will-continue-to-be-wicked/

The Bible is the very Word of the living God, breathed out by God and given to us to train us in all that is necessary for life and godliness. Sunday morning Bible readings is not enough for Christians,  true personal change only comes through a personal, deepening relationship wit the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christhttps://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/02/16/the-bible-one-of-the-best-reliable-sources-proof-that-jesus-is-god/

A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the foundation for a new life with new habits, new attitudes, and new behaviors.  If you’re a Christian, church is not something you go to. It’s something you are.  Churches aren’t dying,  Churches will always be here in you.

God  uses ordinary, broken human beings as vessels of his grace, and delight. The fact that Christ uses flawed people to accomplish his work on earth is actually a sign of his grace, not a sign of his absence.  If you want a more biblical church , gather daily with God. Be willing to lose your job, your home, your family and even your life because you follow Jesus.

If you want to get rid of the church, you also need to get rid of Jesus and end up in Hell. Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/01/22/hell-is-a-real-place/

Romans 12:2 tells us to not be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. When we read and meditate on His Word it renews our minds, allowing us to put God and the things of God above and ahead of all other things. We believers are growing spiritually and are to be focusing on Godly values and beliefs, on what would be pleasing to Him. Having His Word displayed in front of our eyes renews our mind and our perspective.

A survey showed that only 16% of church goers read their Bible every day and only 32% read their Bibles once each week. Of those who go to church, only 37% agree that reading and studying the Bible have made a significant difference in their lives.The Bible has  continual power to change a life, but that it only has power if you read and study the Bible –which requires time and discipline! We is are required to consistently apply Biblical leadings, principles and actions and only that promotes change in one’s life. “The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.”

PSALM 1:1-3“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.”

COLOSSIANS 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

2 TIMOTHY 3:14-16 “But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”

JAMES 1:21-25 “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it–not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it–they will be blessed in what they do.”

 Acts 20:35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

 The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace. Psalm 29:11

 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

  I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

 But I say unto you which hear, love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Luke 6:27-28

 I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued my faithfulness to you. Jeremiah 31:3

 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. John 10:10

  Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2

 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

cross
Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, some not too well hidden even.

Ephesians 4-25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

2 Thessalonians 2 -9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2 Peter 2 -1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

1 John 4 -1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Revelation 16 -13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

 .
Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, one of which is that often they want to get rich, and ?or live in the kingdom off self, to be falsely personally worshiped and still live in sin too. Undeniably Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Bible ignorant persons often lie and preach their own false agendas. false doctrines in churches, even on the net.. and the main reason for that still is that MOST of them have not been called directly to preach , or to teach by God and they are doing so mostly for money, power, personal fame, recognition, slave hood and demonic influence even.  
 .
Many of you are deceived because you have chosen to become servants of mere men instead of becoming the real sons and daughters of GOD! Many of you are deceived because you just love to be deceived, you trust in man more than you trust in GOD, and you love the praises of men more than you love the praise of GOD!
.
Many of you professing Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hebrew Israelite’s are deceived, because you believe more in your man made religions, your many different divisions of denominations, your religious lies, your false leaders, false teachers, false prophets, false apostles, and false teachers, more than you believe in the absolute truth of GOD’S word in CHRIST JESUS!
.
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?
.
Many of you are deceived because you lack the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, and you have not become GOD’S true chosen anointed. If you do not know GOD, Jesus Christ personally through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST and his Holy Spirit for yourselves, then you’re already deceived, and if your already deceived, then deception shall be your reward, because we all reap what we sow!.
.
The vast majority of preaching and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was, is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be.for sure..No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6).  If a Christian’s life isn’t full of the personal supernatural, it’s a pretentious one rather.
.
The  mostly immoral,  lying now people, pastors too often too, spouses, politicians,  lawyers, judges tend to first need decent, real, pastoral counseling themselves.
.
 All Christian Lies, Divorce And/or  Christian Divorce  Remarriage as well as adultery, fornication , Alcoholism, drugs, smoking, gays , Dispensationalism, Hebrew Roots Movement,  in the Christian Church are ALL still unacceptable.
.
While evangelicals mostly concentrate on tithing, abortions gays they too often do  neglect preaching on-
 .
The Holy Spirit   Many persons do not really know much about what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. If you personally do want to have an increase of people in your church, or more love, joy, faith, in your own life, and to be able to resist the continual onslaughts of the enemy the devil you need to be now anointed with the Holy Spirit and you need to get to know him and his works better too. Generally the works of the Holy spirit have an initial beginning but they are also continual works, evolving ones. https://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/
 .
Divorce  -The Old Testament approved of only the husband right to divorce a wife that he was displeased with. Even though lately it is generally 70 percent of the women filling for divorce there still is no Biblical approval of such acts in the Old or New Testament. In the New Testament there is no provision for married Christians to divorce at all generally without committing an act of adultery next..
 .
Dispensationalism-What does the Bible say as opposed to man about Dispensationalism? Dispensationalism  is false, not biblical. Covenant theology   is the opposite of dispensationalism. The Father God’s agreement – promised to the Son: 1) all the Son’s needs to be met; 2) Holy Spirit given to the Church; 3) salvation to all believers; 4) exaltation of the son.
.
False Hebrew Roots movements The Hebrew Roots organizations have become the modern equivalent of the Judaisers who followed the Apostle Paul from city to city, spying on the NT believers’ liberty in Christ and striving to pervert the Gospel and cause confusion among the Early Christians. – https://asposed.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/hebrew-roots-messianic-movement/
.
Instead of Christ alone, the HRM and Messianic Jewish Movement over-balance into the religion that they have never really left! They cannot grasp that ALL is fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ. Not only that, but they want the Christians to embrace the O.T. Jewish religious beliefs, ordinances, and traditions that were necessary under the Law as well!
 .
False Messianic JewsMessianic-jews-are-not-christian. Messianic Judaism” is a counterfeit form of Christianity that follows the rabbinic Judaism. There are radical differences between Judaism and Christianity.
 .

We all are told to come to Jesus directly and always not to mere man…..

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.

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)

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.  (1 John 4:4)

Let not your heart be troubled. You are entrusting God, now trust in Me. (John 14: 1).

I will never fail you nor forsake you. (Heb. 13:5)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wing’s as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:61).

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be any more death. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared. (Revelation 21:4)

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)

Create in me a clean heart, a God; and renew a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)

Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

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

That is why we are not discouraged. Though outwardly we are wearing out inwardly we are renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:16)

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
Psalm 71: 20-21 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.

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.

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

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,
