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
(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
(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.

THE BASIC KEYS TO
RELEASING THE LORDíS HEALING ANOINTING IN, ON OTHERS,
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
(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
(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
2) As an
obedient, humble, faithful servant of God continually daily do Ask God
by faith for the Holy Spiritís 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
(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
(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.
(2 Cor 13:8 KJV) For we can
do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
(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
(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.
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
(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.
1) See Jesus transfigured in Godís light (Matt.
17:1-8), forget yourself, and worship Him in your spirit. (Bib.
Found. sec. III-IV)
2) Ask for
and see Jesusí 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.
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
Jesusí 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.
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
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
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 mindís-eye (eyes of
your heart) see Jesus as He is described in His Transfiguration in
Matt. 17:1-8óSee Jesusí face and clothes full of Godís brilliant
light (Heb. 1:3), surrounded by the bright cloud of Godís Spirit.
See Jesusí 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 picturesófor help learning to hear
Godís voice, maybe go to http://www.cwgministries.org/Free-Christian-Books-and-Articles.htm and click on
"The Four Keys to Hearing Godís Voice"). What is the Lord doing in this
personís 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 itís Godís will")" Jas. 5:15).
--Keep your eyes OPEN so you don't miss the signs of
the Holy Spirit's manifestations on the person.ósome typical signs:
eyelids fluttering, change in breathing, slight shaking, flush on
skin, radiant sheen on the face, visible peace:
Ü Possible responses to the
presence of God and the power of the Holy Spirit:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Intoxicated state of mind (Acts 2:4, 13, 15; Eph.
5:18; cf. I Sam. 1:12-17; I Sam. 19:23f.).
4. Laughing, shouting, or crying (Gen. 17:1, 3,
17; Ezra 3:13; Neh. 8:9; 12:43; Ps. 126:2; Prov. 14:13)
5. Feeling heat, energy (Mk. 5:30; cf. Col.1:29
energeia // dunamis ).
6. Deep peace (Rom. 15:13; I Cor. 14:33), etc.
7. Radiance on oneís face (Acts 2:3; 6:15 and
7:55; II Cor. 3:18 (and Exo. 34:29).
2. ASK FOR THE HOLY SPIRITíS
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 boíi
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 Godís 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").
Ü The Holy Spirit is always with us
(John 14:16-19; Psalm 139:7-10).
ÜÜ 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 personóoften 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 mindís eye, see the
healing power of Jesus as His radiant light entering the personís
body. Whether you perceive the anointing as warmth, tingling and
electricity, as many do, or not, keep seeing in your mindís-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 Lordís 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 Jesusí healing
light penetrating and increasing in intensity in the exact location of the
--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.
3. ENGAGE PRAYER AS THE SPIRIT
LEADSóPETITION / 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 personís body (arm, leg,
heart, etc.) now! Obey the body and blood of Jesus! It is written,
ĎBy His wounds we are healedí (Isa. 53:5; 1 Pet. 2:24), and we
proclaim that by Jesusí wounds this personís body is healed in Jesusí
Donít 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 personótreat it like
an intruder and tell it to leave and never return in Jesusí 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; "íGo, show yourselves to the priests.í
And as they went, they were cleansed" Lk. 17:14).
4. 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 Lordís healing in the personís 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
5. 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."
6 BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS
I. Healing is Not Just "One of the Gifts"--Healing
Shows Non-Christians and Christians Godís 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 Godís 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 Godís Kingdom to show
those who donít know God as well as Godís people the power of Jesusí
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.
II. 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 Godís 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
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 Godís voice, go to http://www.cwgministries.org/Free-Christian-Books-and-Articles.htm and click on "The Four
Keys to Hearing Godís 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 Godís power.
2. The foundation for healing is entering Godís
presence: The Lord said to one Christian colleague of Dr. Virklerís,
"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 Godís 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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
6. 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.
7. 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:
1. Forgiving anyone God brings to mind;
2. Confessing any sins God brings to mind;
3. Breaking generational sins and curses;
4. Severing ungodly soul ties;
5. Replacing negative beliefs;
6. Renouncing inner vows; 7. Breaking word curses;
Receiving inner healing through seeing visions of Jesus in the memory;
9. Casting out demons. All of these
can be covered systematically with a "Contributing Strands
Worksheet" found at www.cwgministries.org/Freebooks. htm and
see Dr. Mark Virkler and Dr. Patti Virklerís book, Prayers
that Heal the Heart (Bridge-Logos, 2001), for full
discussion of these issues.
10 . 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
Jesusí 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 Ė so an spiritual circuit is
completed) on a sick person for 10-20 minutes releasing Godís
power/light into him.
13. 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
14. 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.
5:22 KJV) Lay hands suddenly on no man,
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 Evangelcials too now also go overboard
denying that healing tend to exist today as
common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is
that it is solely, always your own personal fault for being sick.
This false teaching can 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,
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
(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
(Mat 10:8 KJV) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise
the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely
(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 3:2 KJV) And they watched him, whether
he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse
(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,
(Luke 7:3 KJV) And when he heard of Jesus, he
sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come
and heal his servant.
KJV) And he sent them to preach the
kingdom of God, and to heal the
(Luke 10:9 KJV) And heal the sick that are
therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto
(Luke 14:3 KJV) And Jesus answering spake
unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the
(John 4:47 KJV) When he heard that Jesus was
come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that
he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of
(Acts 4:30 KJV) By stretching forth thine hand to
heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name
of thy holy child Jesus.
Just cause some
preacher does not have the faith to heal, has never been used by God in
healing does that now wrongfully mean the Holy spirit gift o healing has
ceased? no! Of course not. So what
if there any instances of believers in the Bible
that asked God for a healing and were refused? Do we next make the false
general statement wrongfully that God refuses all request for healing
thus? Did Jesus automatically heal all those who
came to him? no? or there were conditions to be met to be healed by
Jesus in the New Testament too. Now what were the conditions of
healing? And why were some refused their healings? just
Unconfessed sins? Does the fact that a sickness may return nullify the
first healing? No of course not.. I prayed for a person and he was
healed.. years later the sickness return and I wanted to pray for them
again but God said no, I will not hear your prayer, he is an unrepentant
evil person. Are there
any instances of believers in the Bible that remained sick or died from
a sickness and does the death of any believer now supposedly
nullify any possible healing of others? of course not! ? Is
it not a fact that all healing are temporary anway for
we all do die?
Now let us all
look at the common quotation of Apostle Paul
supposedly applicable on Healings "For this thing
I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 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. 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 Corinthians
It is agreed that
the Apostle Paul had a thorn in the flesh that was particularly
troublesome. Now was this thorn
specifically a sickness and so what specific sickness? Partial
Blindness? Why does God in his word
define it as a "thorn", a specific abusive messenger of Satan, and
not rather a specific sickness. Paul he had asked the Lord
three times to take it the thorn, not to some it only means the
supposed sickness away but God said, "no." So despite God's
refusal to heal him? Paul rejoiced because of his infirmities? and where
is such a reference in the Bible it is a sickness still?.. there
is no such reference the bad preachers imply the thorn was a sickness
cause it is convenient for them to do so.
Here is the undeniable reality God rather
promised the Apostle Paul that he would next suffer
physically for Christ sake cause he persecuted
Christians.. this suffering included the
physical persecutions he received while preaching the Gospel. (Acts
9:15 KJV) But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a
chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings,
and the children of Israel:16 For I will show him how great
things he must suffer for my name's sake. (1 Cor 4:11 KJV) Even unto this present hour
we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain
dwelling place; (1 Pet 2:20 KJV) For what glory is it, if,
when ye be buffeted for
your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well,
and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. if
you have doubts what it means to be buffeted see (Mat 26:67 KJV)
Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the
palms of their hands,)
"Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I
preached the gospel unto you at the
first. And my
temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but
received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus," Galatians
(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.
Now in the Old Testament King David said this about
his own afflictions: "It was good for
me to be afflicted so that I
might learn your decrees...I know, O Lord, that your laws are righteous,
faithfulness you have afflicted me,"
Psalm 119:71, 75. "The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not
given me over unto death," Psalm
118:18. "Before I was
afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word," Psalm 119:67.
The lying bad Preachers here too try to tell you
this affliction was a sickness of David .Yet we have no
mention at all in the Bible that these afflictions were any specific
sickness, rather David clearly was persecuted by his son, and others..
and all as a direct result of his adulterous sin with Bathsheba
and the murder by David of her husband now as well. What the
preachers too do not know the Bible well enough to share the truth? it
sure seems so.
Let us all refer also
to the case of Job and his sickness.. who said " Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked
shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD...Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou
still retain thine integrity? Curse God, and die. But he
said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh.
What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not
receive evil (Calamity)? In all this did not Job sin with his
lips...Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain
mine own ways before him," Job 1:21,
Clearly note that Job
was eventually healed and lived to an old age.. this is undeniable
too. (Job 42:10 KJV) And the LORD turned the
captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job
twice as much as he had before.
(Job 42:11 KJV) Then came there unto him all
his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his
acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they
bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had
brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every
one an earring of gold.
(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.
(Job 42:16 KJV) 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.
Some people are sick due to their own fault.. but
not all persons. We need spiritual discernment on how to deal with the
(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.
(1 Cor 11:29 KJV) 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.
(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
I rightfully suggest all person themselves now
really go back to the Bible.. even on the subjects of healing and
sickness.. I believe in going to see a doctor after we prayed
about it.. still God has promised for his children he would do
for them what the Doctors cannot do. WE as Christian operate also
under a higher law than the earthly laws of
(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
(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.
(Prov 23:4 KJV) Labour not to be rich:
cease from thine own wisdom.
(Prov 28:20 KJV) A faithful man shall
abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be
(Prov 28:22 KJV) He that hasteth to be
rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon
(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
(1 Cor 16:22 KJV) If any man love not the
Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of

shall know them.

of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise
of God. Phil. 1:11
The perverse prosperity
prostitutes, adulterers. It has been my too many years of personal
experiences that the perverse prosperity prostitutes, adulterers,
idolterers persons, who mainly tithe to get richer and not
rather to help the poor persons, for they do generally
as well despise the poor and needy persons, covet to be rich they can be
found in both the secular and religious camps, and their behaviors tend
to be very similar. Even the religious persons, the rather still carnal
persons, the Judas followers, while they now even do profess
to be moral good living persons still when it comes to making more
money they clearly bend their rules on morality, ethics, honesty, and
they will even cheat, lie steal to acquire more wealth... they mainly
still also do see other people as slave objects, slaves that can be used
to help them increase their personal acquisitions and they will cast
out, sell out their poor relatives, relationships still
too.. but they still will even profess to be good persons now
too... and try to by their way into heaven.
(Mat 25:34 KJV) Then shall the King say
unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the
kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For
I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me
drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye
clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came
unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord,
when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee
drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked,
and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and
came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least
of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he
say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into
everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I
was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me
no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and
ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an
hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison,
and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the
least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away
into everlasting punishment:
(James 2:1 KJV) My brethren, have not the
faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of
persons. 2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold
ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile
raiment; 3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay
clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to
the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4 Are
ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil
thoughts? 5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the
poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath
promised to them that love him? 6 But ye have despised the poor.
Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are
called? 8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye
have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as
transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet
offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do
not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no
adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the
(1 Tim 5:8 KJV) But if any provide not for
his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the
faith, and is worse than an infidel.
(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.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a
liar, and his word is not in us.
2:20 KJV) For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy
bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill
and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the
(Jer 3:6 KJV) The LORD said also unto me in
the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding
Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under
every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.
(Jer 3:13 KJV) Only acknowledge thine
iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast
scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have
not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.
(Mat 23:37 KJV) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou
that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee,
how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen
gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would
(Prov 23:5 KJV) Wilt thou set thine eyes upon
that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly
away as an eagle toward heaven.
(Ezek 6:13 KJV) Then shall ye know that I am
the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about
their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains,
and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where
they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.
(Psa 35:13 KJV) But as for me, when they were
sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my
prayer returned into mine own bosom.
(Psa 69:13 KJV) But as for me, my prayer is
unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy
mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
(Psa 9:9 KJV) The LORD also will be a refuge
for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. 10 And they that
know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing praises to the LORD, which
dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. 12 When he
maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the
cry of the humble.
(Psa 48:1 KJV) Great is the LORD, and greatly
to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount
Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. 3 God
is known in her palaces for a refuge.
(Psa 62:5 KJV) My soul, wait thou only upon
God; for my expectation is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my
salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. 7 In God is my
salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in
God. 8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart
before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9 Surely men of low
degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the
balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. 10 Trust not in
oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not
your heart upon them. 11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard
this; that power belongeth unto God. 12 Also unto thee, O Lord,
belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his
(Psa 104:16 KJV) The trees of the LORD are full of
sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17 Where the
birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks
for the conies. 19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun
knoweth his going down. 20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night:
wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21 The young
lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. 22 The
sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their
dens. 23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the
evening. 24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast
thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
(Isa 25:1 KJV) O LORD, thou art my God; I will
exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things;
thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. 2 For thou hast
made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers
to be no city; it shall never be built. 3 Therefore shall the
strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear
thee. 4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to
the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the
heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the
wall. 5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat
in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of
the terrible ones shall be brought low. 6 And in this mountain
shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a
feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on
the lees well refined. 7 And he will destroy in this mountain the
face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread
over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the
Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his
people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath
spoken it. 9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our
God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we
have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab
shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the
dunghill. 11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of
them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he
shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring
down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
I have had some very
dramatic, real VALID personal experiences with Healing.. they were
mostly unexpected ones
It all started mostly when my 6 month daughter was
diagnosed as being seriously ill, likely to die a vegetable within 3
years. I had no experiences in healings. I had also just gone to a new
church, the Christian Missionary Alliance church, and I had read their
church doctrines on healing. She was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which is derived from two
Greek words, hydro, meaning water, and cephalus, meaning head, and once was called
"water on the brain." Hydrocephalus is the condition caused by the
accumulation of an abnormally large amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
in the skull, or cranium. Normally, CSF flows continually from the
interior cavities in the brain (ventricles) to the thin subarachnoid
space that surrounds the brain and spinal chord. 1/10000 babies are born
My wife who was also a nurse was very very
depressed about it.. so I suggested we separately read the Bible and ask
God what to do about it
God next told us three things in our Bible
1 She our daughter was not sick for our sin, or
2: She will be healed God had needed her for his
3: I now was to ask the local church elders to
pray for her healing.
(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.
When I approached the local Alliance Church pastor
to have the elders to pray for my daughter he was hesitant, the local
Church had really never done it before but eventually they agreed to
come to our home two days later to pray for our daughter
About 6 elders came and prayed for her and next day
God had told me she was healed, but physically there was no evidence of
it.. her head swelling had not gone down... that was what I was
expecting to happen.. I was really expecting a miracle, not a gradual
was dismayed next also that I got a phone call that two church elders
who prayed for my daughter undeniably rather clearly got immiediately
healed, one of a neck problem and one of an arm problem
Next the local Shriner's children Hospital
called and wanted us to bring our daughter for medical testing and
surgery. When I prayed God had replied that the doctors had told me she
was sick, and the doctors would tell me she was well. When we went to
the Hospital, I told the attending nurse that my daughter was healed but
she of copurse did not believe me. I als had told her no operation
would be needed. On the next day at 8:30 am they took her for a brain
scan, and hours later it became very quiet on the floor, the nurses were
whispering. and 3 doctors dressed in white came to see me and my wife
and said.. we have no explanation for it but she has healed
herself, there will need no need for surgery and I can take her home the
My story did not end there, for the next day
at 3:30 pm ,when my wife and I got in the family car to take our
daughter home, and when I went to start the car, the gas accelerator got
stuck and the car started to race down the street at rapidly
accelerating speed on it's own. it was a dead end street too. And all I
could do was cry Jesus help me.. and next the car stalled and stopped
God told me that the devil was mad, mad
that we had robbed him of a sick child and that he the devil
was going to punish another child next, and that I was to pray for the
child and the father. So I did right there I prayed for the unknown to
me Child's protection and healing.
We next took our daughter home and the doctors told
us that she would have headaches for a few days cause of the medical
testing, and you could see her in pain, her eyes were rolling.. but I
said if God could heal her of brain problems he can deal with a headache
and I prayed for my daughter immediately at home and clearly her
The next day we got a phone call that the visiting
Church football evangelist daughter was born that day at the same
Shriner's hopistal with the same sickness my daughter had, she had hydrocephalus and spinal Biff.
The very next day I divinely met the same football player on
the street on the way to work unexpectedly and we both went for coffee.
I told him that God had told me that he God would hear my prayer and his
daughter too would be healed.. even though he may not believe me.. and
she evntually was too.
It was not all personally rosy for me after my
own daughter's healing for too many local Christian people got
mad, jealous, bitter over the miraculous healing.. some even lied and
said the devil healed her, and sadly eventually I had to leave this
local church because of the too many unpleasantness. but a doctor in the
same church was converted, he had recognized personally what sickness my
daughter had being a doctor, and he next said only God could heal her
and he accepted Jesus as his savior. And while God still heals the devil
also still tries to rob it, to destroy it, to discredit it.. and he will
even uses some professing Christians to do so.. sad isn't it.
(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.
(Psa 51:17 KJV) The sacrifices of God are a
broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not
KJV) For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth
eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with
him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit
of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
(Isa 66:2 KJV) For
all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been,
saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor
