Sickness & HEALING

 
If it was God's will for us to stay sick then why would God allow the Hospitals to be buit, or why would Jesus himself now cure the sick people..
 
(Heb 13:8 KJV)  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
 
(Heb 13:12 KJV)  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.14  For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.14 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16  But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
 
(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
 
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 
(James 5:17 KJV)  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
 
(James 5:18 KJV)  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
 
(James 5:19 KJV)  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
 
What we all need to do is to obey, follow after the word of God and not rather try to explain it away...
 
(Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
 
Some of the  distorted preachers, even pentecostals do too often do teach that any  Christian should not be sick at all and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith and God will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that  a temporary human sickness can temporary serve God's purposes.  But also yet the Fundamentals 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 prerogative..
 
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 about it, teach.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(Luke 4:18 KJV)  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Many people want to know why the miracles of Christ are not abounding today.. the answer is quite simple..
 
(Mat 13:57 KJV)  And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
 
(Mat 13:58 KJV)  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
 
(Gal 3:5 KJV)  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
 
(Mat 15:28 KJV)  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
 
(Mat 21:21 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
 
(Mark 2:5 KJV)  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
 
(Mark 10:52 KJV)  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
 
(Mark 11:22 KJV)  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
 
(Acts 20:21 KJV)  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 
(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8   A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
 
I HAVE ALSO LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT EVEN IF MANY PERSONS DO SEE A MIRACLE THERE WILL BE NO SIGNIFICANT SPIRITUAL CHANGE IN THEIR LIFE.
 
(John 12:37 KJV)  But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
 
When praying for a believer's  healing, which is the children's bread,  as per the book of James the sick person has also to confess and also to repent of  their sins, admit their own causes of the illness..
 
(John 5:13 KJV)  And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
 
(1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
 
(John 8:11 KJV)   And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
 
(1 Cor 11:27 KJV)  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
 
Prayer and fasting for deliverance though is also needed.
 
(Mat 17:18 KJV)  And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19  Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
 
(1 Cor 10:13 KJV)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
 
(Phil 4:19 KJV)  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
 
GOD WILL SUPPLY IF YOU LET HIM ALL YOUR NEEDS, FORGIVENESS, SALVATION, REDEMPTION, SICKNESS, DELIVERANCE.
 
(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
 
(Psa 51:16 KJV)  For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 
AND IF IT WAS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU TO BE SICK THERE WOULD ALSO BE SICKNESS IN HEAVEN.
 
(Rev 21:3 KJV)  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.5   And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
 
(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
 
Only Christians can firstly  by faith confess God's healing promises....
 
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed
 
A person can confess this verse all they want and yet they will not be healed if they do not respect, follow the rest of God's conditions.. what there are more conditions? yes read the verse afterwards also for a start..
 
(Isa 53:6 KJV)   All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
 
this following verses says we have to also humbly repent, confess our sins so do the next ones..
 
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (1 Pet 3:4 KJV)  But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
 
One cannot pray for personally healing and have unrepented sins still in one's life.
(James 5:12 KJV)  But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
 
(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord  16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20   Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
 
(1 Cor 11:26 KJV)  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come.27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
 
Many times after even an in repentant pastor slanders me someone will phone me and say did you know the pastor is now seriously sick..
 
(Mat 5:22 KJV)  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
I REALLY DO also  believe in PERSONALLY appropriating, claiming for ourselves  God's word  by faith, the specific  word that God has specifically given to us. For God to speak to us we do need to be in a valid relationship with Him, His Son Jesus, the Holy Spirt, his Word as well.. and we need to listen to what he personally is telling us what to do..(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:(Jer 6:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. (Isa 30:21 KJV)  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
 
(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)   In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
 
I also still very tired of false preachers taking isolated words of the Bible and trying to build a major doctrine, lifestyle around it.. even those who say  there is "power in our words".
 
The power is not in our words, not at all,  the power is always ONLY in God's words and what God says will happen if we follow after God's Word or what will happen to us by God's power if we reject God's word to us.
 
Man too often tries to make himself the center of attention, to exaggerate his self importance and his capabilities.. without God we are nothing and always will be nothing.
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12  So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
 
Some they say there is power in our words,  and they use vain repetition trying to make things happen, they have wrongfully turned their eyes of God and onto themselves..
 
(Mat 6:7 KJV)  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
 
(Mark 7:7 KJV)  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
 
Valid Positive confession is confessing the word of God given PERSONALLY  to us.. (Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 
(Rom 14:23 KJV)  And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
 
We also cannot perform a miracle any time we want, nor can we just claim any Bible verse, for God is always sovereign, in charge, not us..
 
Even Jesus could not do what he wanted to, he was always dependent on what  the Father said he could do.. (John 5:19 KJV)  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
 
(Mat 8:16 KJV)  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
 
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
 
(Acts 4:10 KJV)  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 13  Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
 
(1 Tim 5:23 KJV)  Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
 
(Luke 8:2 KJV)  And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
 
note above here that evil spirits and infirmities are two separate items here..
 
(Luke 7:21 KJV)  And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
 
Note the above word many.. it is not the word all...
 
(Rom 15:1 KJV)  We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
 
       Some people still wrongfully do look for false reasons not to help any others, they falsely even do delegate wrong reasons for the others being poor  or sick now as well and thus wrongfully excuse themselves from not personally helping them .. sadly some Christians,  some, pastors included.  I have met many professing Christian persons who wrongfully teach even that all sickness is caused by a  personal mental problem,  or they do wrongfully teach that one has power within oneself to heal oneself... or that all sickness is only demonic in cause, needing only a spiritual cure..   and none of this is in accordance to the Bible, or what God teaches us now as well..  
(Rom 8:26 KJV)  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
 
God alone has power to heal us, we never do not have any of this power in us.. this power is in God to use as God wills and not in us still too....
 
(2 Cor 12:9 KJV)  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
 
(2 Cor 4:8 KJV)  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10   Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
 
I have already made it personally clear that all sickness is not demonic in cause.. some sickness also does have real physical causes.. and it is for that reasons that God has not said that we should not go to any doctors.. rather what God has said was that we should not go to Doctors' first for our healing.. we need to go to God first in prayer, and he God can next choose to heal us directly or tell us to go to a doctor next.  
 
My own daughter was miraculously healed of a very serious sickness without any doctor then helping her.. at that time there was no available medical help for her sickness as well.. but next God told me to take my son for surgery to remove a cyst. I asked God why? if he could heal my daughter then why did my son have to go for surgery.. God clearly said to me I work through people as well, even through doctors and what they cannot do God will next do for me..
 
Note this historic fact most of the major hospitals, even major educational institutions were originally founded by Christians who cared about the good welfare of others.
 
(Luke 10:30 KJV)  And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31  And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32  And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  33  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34  And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35  And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37  And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
 
(Mark 9:41 KJV)  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
 
(John 17:1 KJV)  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
 
ALL OF OUR ACTS ARE TO EXALT THE FATHER AND NOT OURSELVES..
 
Some persons, preachers they do say there is power in our words, in our verbal positive confession, using only positive words, that is not really the truth, rather the power always  is in God  only.
 
For instance if we are always going around worrying, expressing about  our fears so next these things  they  will likely next happen to us, not because we have confessed the  words of fears, but because  God will want to show to us how he can and we will through us overcome the things we feared..as believers.. we as committed believer sin God are not allowed the luxury of defeat.. we will be overcomers over our fears too.. and thus we will learn that (Phil 4:13 KJV)  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
 
(Rev 12:11 KJV)  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
 
Take for example Job who said (Job 3:25 KJV)  For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.  he learned that he could next be victorious over what he feared as well..
 
(Job 42:12 KJV)  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 13  He had also seven sons and three daughters.14  And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.17  So Job died, being old and full of days.
 
We all also do need to confess personally  more what Jesus has already done for us, such as by his stripes we were healed too, and not what we think bad can or will happen to us.. The only valid Positive confession is what Jesus has done for us and those words that God has personally told us we can claim by faith..
THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH FOR PERSONAL SALVATION, FAITH  IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE, AND ONE BODY OF CHRIST, AND ONE TEMPLE,  IT IS THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.
 
A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to  Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.
IF YOU BEGIN TO PRAY FOR THE SICK AS OUTLINED BELOW, YOU TOO WILL BEGIN TO SEE JESUS HEAL THE SICK THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS..
 
(1 Ki 8:28 KJV)  Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:
 
(2 Chr 6:19 KJV)  Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:
 
(Psa 102:17 KJV)  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
 
(Prov 15:8 KJV)  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
 
(Prov 15:29 KJV)  The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
 
(James 5:15 KJV)  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

 
The Basics by Dr. Gary S. Greig   Dr. Mark Virkler   Rev. Frank Gaydos John G. Lake Ministries, Pennsylvania Healing Rooms Ministry Director
 
THE BASIC KEYS TO RELEASING THE LORDíS HEALING ANOINTING IN, ON OTHERS, OURSELVES
 
Basic Statements:
1) Focus on God, His word, his promises, Jesus, not on yourself or the others at all, do forget everything else, worship Him, God,  Jesus alone...
 
(Gen 20:17 KJV)  So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.
 
Take the initial step.. start a ongoing relation with Jesus through your ongoing personal prayer, communication with God.
 
It is not God's ability to heal others too that is the key  issue but clearly our own personal lack of unpracticed faith, our own lack of prayer.. for we are firstly too secular, too worldly minded too often to be used spiritual by God. .
 
(Eccl 3:11 KJV)  He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
 
(Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
 
(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
 
(Mark 3:27 KJV)  No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
 
(Rev 3:8 KJV)  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
 
 2) As an obedient, humble, faithful servant of God continually daily do Ask God  by faith  for the Holy 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 taken.
 
(Ezek 34:16 KJV)  I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
(James 4:3 KJV)  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
 
3) Rely on the direct input from the Holy Spirit, listen to him before you do even next pray, Engage the Prayer-type that the Spirit leads you to pray.. 
 
(John 5:19 KJV)  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
 
(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(2 Cor 13:8 KJV)  For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

4) Dipstick (Check personally for the full filling of the  Oil of the Holy Spirit) and Remove the personal Blocks
 
(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
 
The Confession of sins, restitution might be first required by the person being prayed for as well.
 
 (James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

5) Next do hold in your mind  the detailed faith-picture of the person healed as given to you by God , and do not waver, do continue to thank God soley for it
 
(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
 
6) Differentiate between a miracle and a healing.. Miracles are instantaneously while Healing my have a time element.. but all healings, miracles too  can be certified by medical doctors.
 
7) By faith in God hold on to the healing recognizing that false symptoms counterfeit by the devil can come next instead and cause you to doubt, even to lose your healing.
 
(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
 
(John 5:15 KJV)  The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
 
(John 8:11 KJV)   And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
 
Expanded Statement: 
 
1) See Jesus transfigured in 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. sec.  III,VI-VII)
 
3) Engage the prayer-type that the Spirit leads you to--petition, command,  or pronouncement; if led by the Spirit to use command prayer, you may  first  command the pain to leave in 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. IX-XI)

5) Hold in mind a detailed faith-picture of the person healed and say,  "Thank you, Lord, that that is the way it is going to be, because your  power is healing this person." (Bib. Found. sec. III, V)
 
Releasing the Healing Anointing of Jesus in Prayer
 
Methods and procedures do not heal. Jesus does. But these are some points which help us  draw near to Jesus and discern what He wants to do through us in prayer.
 
1. FOCUS ON JESUS/ FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE
--Dial down, quiet yourself and tell the person being prayed for to dial down,  quiet themselves and focus on Jesus who is always with us (Matt 28:20).

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

--With your 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. 12:21).
 
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. 1:17).
 
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 infirmity.
 
--Thank the Lord as an expression of faith (Ps. 22:3-4; 50:23; 2 Chron. 20:21-  23, 27): "Lord, thank you that your healing light and power is going into this  person and into the place of infirmity." Thank the Lord whether you feel or sense  anything happening or not.

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 name."
 
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  asleep [died]"). 

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 
 
JAMES 5:14-18  1. Remove blockages by confessing your sins one to another (Jas.  5:14-18): Each person in the group (prayer ministers and person being  prayed for) is to focus on Jesus with the eyes of your heart. Fix your  eyes on Jesus and ask Him if there is anything that is blocking His  healing power from flowing to you. Receive His response back by tuning  to spontaneous thoughts and pictures (For help learning to hear 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. 
 
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;
 
8.  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).
 
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 too.
 
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 man,
 
 
Additional Notes
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 well.
 
 A too 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, teach.
 
Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal ignorance of what the Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people wrongfully rely mainly on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing and Not on God and his Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up beforehand anyway and are not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend use out of context bible verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit, substantiate their own pet views.. they need to read these verses..
 
(Mat 8:7 KJV)  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
 
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
 
(Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
 
(Mat 12:10 KJV)  And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
 
(Mat 13:15 KJV)  For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
 
(Mark 3:2 KJV)  And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
 
(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.
 
(Luke 9:2 KJV)  And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
 
(Luke 10:9 KJV)  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
 
(Luke 14:3 KJV)  And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
 
(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 death.
 
(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 12:8-10.
 
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 4:13-14.

(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, 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, 2:9-10, 13:15.
 
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 sick..
 
(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 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 medicine.
 
(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.
 
(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 innocent.
 
(Prov 28:22 KJV)  He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
 
(Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
 
(1 Cor 16:22 KJV)  If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
 
(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
 
(Mat 7:20 KJV)  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
 
Being filled with the fruits 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 law.
 
(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.
 
(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.
 
(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 not!
 
(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 work.
 
(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 that way.
 
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 reading-
1 She our daughter was not sick for our sin, or our fault
2: She will be healed God had needed her for his glory
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 healing.
 
I 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 too.
 
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 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.
 
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 headaches stopped.
 
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 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 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 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;

(Heb 13:5 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.
