THE BASIC KEYS TO RELEASING THE LORDíS
HEALING ANOINTING IN, ON OTHERS, OURSELVES
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
Take the initial step.. start a ongoing
relation with Jesus through your ongoing personal prayer, communication with
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. .
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.
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.
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
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 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.
51:17 KJV) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a
contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
8:15 KJV) And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken,
and be snared, and be taken.
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
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.
13:8 KJV) For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the

personally for the full filling of the Oil of the Holy Spirit) and
Remove the personal Blocks
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
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.

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
5:15 KJV) The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which
had made him whole.
8:11 KJV) And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

power) radiating onto you and into you. Keep your focus on Him

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

Hearing Godís Voice"). What is the Lord doing in this personís life
and what does He want to do through your prayers?

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:
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 ).
peace (Rom. 15:13; I Cor. 14:33), etc.
Radiance on oneís face (Acts 2:3; 6:15 and 7:55; II Cor. 3:18 (and
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;
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"
--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 infirmity.
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
--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).
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 name."
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
--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).
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 asleep [died]").
5. KEEP PRAYING AS THE LORD LEADS, PICTURING THE
--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
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.
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.
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 pronouncement.
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.
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; 7. Breaking word curses;
8. 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
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).
11. 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.
12. 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.
(1 Tim 5:22 KJV) Lay hands suddenly on no
(1 Tim 5:22 KJV) Lay hands suddenly on no
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 any healing tend to
exist today as well. Relatedly 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
Relatedly 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
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
8:7 KJV) And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal
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.

cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have
received, freely give.
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.
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
3:2 KJV) And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the
sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
3:15 KJV) And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out
4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath

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.
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
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.
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, and in
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.
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.
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.
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 sick..
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
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
(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.
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
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.
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
(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

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

7:16 KJV) Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes
of thorns, or figs of thistles?

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
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 law.
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

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
(Jer 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 harlot.
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
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
(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 not!
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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 work.
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.
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
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 that way.
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
next told us three things in our Bible reading-
She our daughter was not sick for our sin, or our fault
She will be healed God had needed her for his glory
I now was to ask the local church elders to pray for her
(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 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
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 healing.
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 too.
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 next day.
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 immediately.
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
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 headaches stopped.
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 despise.
(Isa 57:15 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
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 and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
(Isa 40:31 KJV) But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they
shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
(Luke 18:1 KJV) And he
spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and
not to faint;
KJV) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content
with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
