The Message: UNDERSTANDING THE CALL OF GOD (1)

TYPES OF DIVINE CALL

There are some basic things we
need to understand concerning the
call of God.

We shall discuss ten of
such in the next few weeks or months, God willing.

So here we are going to talk about
the types of divine call.

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF DIVINE
CALL, NAMELY: THE BELIEVER'S
GENERAL CALL AND THE
BELIEVER'S SPECIFIC CALL.

The believer's general call is the
common call given by God to all
believers.

Peter referred to this when he
wrote, "But ye are a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, an
holy nation, a peculiar people. That
ye should show forth the praises of
him who hath CALLED you out of
darkness into his marvelous
light" (1 Pet 2:9).

Every believer in Christ has the
SAME GENERAL CALL.

One is called as a believer, firstly, to
minister to God in true worship; secondly, to
minister to oneself; thirdly, to
minister to other fellow believers;
and fourthly to minister to sinners
(Matthew 22:37-40, Romans 12:1-2, Acts 1:8).

Concerning this general call, Paul
wrote the Thessalonian believers,
"Faithful is he that CALLETH you,
who also will do it" ( 1Thes 5:24 ).

Similarly, he prayed unto God that
the Ephesian believers would know
"the hope of HIS CALLING" ( Eph
1:18 ; see Eph 4:4 , too).

Also, he wrote the Corinthian
believers, "For [simply] consider
YOUR OWN CALL, brethren; not
many [of you were considered to
be] wise according to human
estimates and standards, not many
influential and powerful, not many
of high and noble birth" ( 1Cor 1:26 ,
AMP, see also 1Cor 7:20 ).

Again, he wrote the Hebrew
believers, "So then, brethren,
consecrated and set apart for God,
who share in the HEAVENLY
CALLING" ( Heb 3:1 , AMP).

Interestingly likewise, Peter wrote
some believers, "Because of this,
brethren, be all the more solicitous
and eager to make sure (to ratify,
to strengthen, to make steadfast)
YOUR CALLING and election; for if
you do this, you will never stumble
or fall" ( 2Pet 1:10 , AMP).

On the other hand, every believer
has A DIFFERENT SPECIFIC CALL.

The Bible says, "Just as each of us
has one body with many members,
and these members DO NOT ALL
HAVE THE SAME FUNCTION. We
have DIFFERENT GIFTS according
to the grace given us" ( Rom 12:4 ,
6a , NIV).

Peter wrote, "Each one should use
WHATEVER GIFT HE HAS
RECEIVED to serve others, faithfully
administering God's grace in its
various forms" ( 1 Pet 4:10, NIV).

Some believers are called to be
apostles, prophets, evangelists,
pastors or teachers while some are
called to function in one or more of
the nine gifts of the Spirit.

Still some others are in the helps
ministry perhaps through their
secular professions or jobs (please
read 1 Corinthians 12: 4-18 , 27-30 ;
Rom 12:4-8 ).

Helps ministry as seen in Romans 12 above (check your Bible) includes:

(1) Giving ministry [ministry of those with unusual burden to support people with money or material possessions, etc]

(2) Ministry of exhortation [psalmist ministry/drama ministry/prayer ministry/counselling ministry, etc]

(3) Ministry of ruling/rulership [bishopric/deaconry/kingship/anointed political, economic or social leaders]

(4) Ministry of mercy
[Caring for orphans/old folks/widows, faith-based hospitals, faith-based schools, etc]

There are right and wrong
professions, vocations or jobs for
different individuals.

Only the right profession, vocation or job can bring a person divine fulfillment.

But if you are not yet born again, then give your life to Jesus now and make this confession right away.

SINNER'S CONFESSION

If you want to become a child of God now, then say this confession:
 "I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification. The scripture says, "If you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). Therefore, I believe in Jesus with my heart and confess him as my Lord. Now, I am born- again (Amen)."

PRAYER FOR HEALING & DELIVERANCE

So put your hand on the part of your body that needs healing. Also on your chest for inner healing of your spirit or soul. You can also do it on behalf of your loved ones.

Now in the mighty name of Jesus, be healed of cancer, HIV/AIDS, barrenness, insanity, lameness, blindness, deafness, dumbness, fibroid, tumour, broken bone, hypertension, epilepsy, kidney failure, liver failure, weak heart, leprosy, emotional crisis, failed marriages, failed ministries, failed businesses, academic failure, broken heart, depression, wounded conscience, and all manners of sicknesses and diseases.

In the name of Jesus, I command your total deliverance from generational or family curses, spirit of death, bondages, and so on.

Be healed in Jesus' name! Be healed in Jesus' name! Be healed in Jesus' name!

SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

Also Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8).

And on the day of Pentecost  “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).

Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.

I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit…] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus’ name.

Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus’ name (Amen).

Today's Message Title: How to Receive Your Divine Healing

Ministering: Segun Olumide

Introduction:

Three weeks ago, I began ministering on healing and health for your spirit, soul and body with the first instalment titled: "10 Things You Should Know About Healing" (You can get the full message from my book with same title).

Then in the past 2 weeks, I shared 16 out of 30 Biblical reasons why some people are not healed.

Today, I want to dwell on: "How to Receive Your Divine Healing."

Actually, I have four (4) "Healing & Health Series," namely:

Part 1 - Ten Things You Should Know about Healing

Part 2 - Why Some Are Not Healed

Part 3 - How to Receive Your Divine Healing

Part 4 - Healing of Crushed Emotions & Disturbed Minds

The Message: How to Receive Your Divine Healing

(1) GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR HEALING

(2) STEPS TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING

STEP 1: FORGIVE ANYONE WHO HAS OFFENDED YOU

STEP 2: RECEIVE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS

STEP 3: REALIZE THAT SICKNESS IS FROM SATAN

STEP 4: BELIEVE THAT JESUS HAS ALREADY HEALED YOU

STEP 5: CONFESS YOUR HEALING WILLINGLY AND BOLDLY

STEP 6: ACT ON THE WORD OF GOD AS ONE ALREADY HEALED

STEP 7: GIVE GLORY TO GOD FOR YOUR HEALING

(1) GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR HEALING
      
The psalmist affirmed, "I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord" (Psalm 118:17 KJV).

You see, the reason why we shall not die of sickness, disease, accident, and so on is that we may live and declare the works of the Lord as seen in the scripture above!

Healing is God’s will for you. Before I show you how you can receive healing from God no matter the sickness or disease afflicting your mind or body, I want to let you understand God's purpose for your healing.

God said, "And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil" (Exo 23:25-26).

Here again, God is saying that as you serve Him in obedience in life and ministry - in day-to-day living as well as in your assignment - He will do 2 things for you, namely:

(1) If there is sickness present in your life, He will give you healing instead.

(2) If you continue serving Him in total obedience, He will prevent you from being sick, so that you won't need healing because you will have health!

That was the secret of Jesus who declared: "My meat [MY SATISFACTION; WHAT SATISFIES MY SPIRITUAL HUNGER] is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work" (John 4:34 KJV).

If you are not yet a child of God by accepting Jesus into your heart then you must become a true child of God first.

I believe with T.L. Osborn that there is no use receiving healing from God, without becoming his child, so that he can give you more strength to serve the devil.

If you can become a child of God, then divine healing and health become your rights.

For seventeen long years, I suffered from nocturnal enuresis (night bed-wetting). I remember my father taking me to a medical doctor to help but it made little or no difference. I took some natural herbs but all to no avail.

All through both my primary and secondary school days, I suffered shame because of it. Being a boarding student, I became a laughing stock in my hostel among fellow students.

On August the tenth, 1993, roughly a month after I finished from that boarding secondary school, I became a child of God - I became born-again.

Immediately, I my life took on a new meaning. Without praying about it, I just noticed that nocturnal enuresis was gone forever from my life! Yeah, divine healing and health are my rights in Christ Jesus!

Healing is for babes while health is for grown-ups! Growing babes can tap into divine health by faith (trust) and obedience.

If you want to become a child of God now, then say this confession:
“I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification. The scripture says, “If you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). Therefore, I believe in Jesus with my heart and confess him as my Lord. Now, I am born- again (Amen).”


(2) STEPS TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING

Now, let’s look at the seven scriptural, practical steps to receive healing from God.

STEP 1: FORGIVE ANYONE WHO HAS OFFENDED YOU

Jesus said, “And when you stand PRAYING, if you HOLD ANYTHING AGAINST ANYONE, FORGIVE HIM, so that your father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
But if you do not forgive, neither will your father who is in heaven forgive your sins” (Mark 11-26, NIV).

He also said, “… FORGIVE, and you will be will be forgive “(Luke 6:37, NIV). The Greek words translated ‘forgive’ here means ‘to let go, to release, to pardon, to free fully, to set free, to let go free, to detain no longer, to dismiss.’

In other words, he was saying, “If anyone has offended you and you hold him captive in the prison of your mind by holding anything against him then you have to release, pardon, let go of him.”

But if you won’t let him go free or free him fully from your heart, then you will be imprisoned and hindered by your own sins.

Unfortunately some people, especially believers who have been praying and believing for their healing are hindered from receiving because they don’t forgive others.

Though that is not the only hindrance to receiving healing, deliverance or answers to our prayers generally, yet it’s one of the major obstacles.

Notice that Jesus said in Mark 11:25, “And when you stand PRAYING, if you hold anything against anyone, FORGIVE him…”

He linked forgiveness to prayer because he knew that unforgiveness will always hinder answers to prayers.

I remember the story of two women in a particular church. There was misunderstanding between them.

One of them had goitre (a diseased growth that makes the neck swollen). If either of them came to church earlier than the other and sat down, and the second one coming in later mistakenly sat next seat to the first woman, she would immediately get up in bitterness and hatred sitting elsewhere.

They were not on talking terms. They harbored malice towards each other. If they met each other somewhere, they would look in different directions without greeting. Unforgiveness was the name of the game.

But on a certain day in church, one of them left a seat when she discovered that her ‘adversary’ was sitting next to her.

Then the preacher who has been observing them stopped her and called them together. Their differences were forever settled. They forgave each other and were reconciled.

Then they hugged each other. And right there, the goitre in the neck of one of them disappeared. She was healed after dealing with unforgiveness!

STEP 2: RECEIVE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS

Apart from giving out forgiveness to others, you have to receive forgiveness into your own life. As a believer, you have received the remission of sins through the blood of Jesus. That’s what makes you a child of God.

The Bible says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins” Colossians 1:14 (KJV).

You see, the Greek word translated ‘forgiveness’ here is the word ‘aphesis’ which is better rendered as ‘remission.’

Remission here actually means the taking away of the sin inherited from Adam (through the blood of Jesus): for that was what made everyone on earth a sinner.

But as many as have received this remission of sins are no longer sinners but believers. So a sinner needs remission of sins but a believer needs forgiveness of sins.

Now as a believer wanting to receive healing from God, you have to be sure you receive forgiveness from God, from others and from yourself.

RECEIVE FORGIVENESS FROM GOD

Your sins can definitely hinder your healing. God links healing to sin. Isaiah 33:24 reads, No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill (or sick)” and SINS of those who dwell there will be forgiven “(NIV).

Do you know that all believers in Christ have come to Mt Zion (Hebrew 12:22) where there should be no sickness because the people will have dominion over sin (Romans 6:14)?

In fact, when there was no sin in the world there was no sickness. Sickness only came because sin entered the world.

That was why Jesus said to the paralyzed man seeking healing, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” But when some religious folks challenged him (Jesus) in their hearts, he replied, “Which is easier to say,
‘Your sins are forgiven or to say, Get up and walk?… He said to paralyzed man, ‘I tell you get up, take your mat and go home.” And he was instantly healed (see Luke 5:17-26).

Also after healing the sick man who had lain by the pool of Bethsaida for thirty eight (38) years, he said to him, “… Now you are well; don’t sin as you did before, or something even worse may happen to you” (John 5:14 Living Bible).

James 5:15 (Living Bible) reads,
“And their prayer, if offered in faith, will heal him, for the Lord will make him well, and if his sickness was caused by some sin, the Lord will forgive him.”

That doesn’t mean that every sickness is caused by sin in the life of the person suffering. No … But it does mean that you may need to receive forgiveness from God before you can receive healing for your mind or body.

You may need to repent of sins of omission or neglect (James 4:17) or sins of commission (Proverbs 24:9). All unrighteousness is sin (1 John 5:17).

God told the Israelites, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you” (Exodus 15:26).

In essence, God was saying, “If you obey me fully, you will live in good health (without any sickness or disease). But it you disobey me by indulging in sin, than I will permit sickness to come to you.”

Now, how do you receive forgiveness from God if you have sinned against Him by rejecting his will for your life: running away to Tarshish like Jonah; having the love of money which is the root of all evils; indulging in sexual immorality, electoral malpractices, examination malpractices; forging certificate or documents; stealing money in church, in school or at office; refusing to pay your tithes and offerings and so on?

Proverbs 28:13 (KJV), “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso CONFESSETH and FORSAKETH them shall have MERCY.”

Do you truly want God’s mercy to bring healing to your mind or body? Then confess and forsake your sins.

1 John 1:8-10 (NIV) makes it clearer, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we CONFESS our sins, he is faithful and just and will FORGIVE us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.”

One of the Greek words translated ‘sin’ means ‘to miss the mark.’ So where have you missed the mark in your life?

RECEIVE FORGIVENESS FROM OTHERS
In step one, we looked at giving forgiveness to those who have offended you. But now, we are looking at receiving forgiveness from those whom we have offended.

Jesus said, “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother HAS SOMETHING AGAINST YOU LEAVE YOUR GIFT there in front of the altar. FIRST GO  and be RECONCILED to your brother, then come and offer your gift” (Mathew 5:23-24).

I love how the Living Bible puts verse 24 above, “ Leave your sacrifice there beside the altar and GO and APOLOGIZE and BE RECONILED to him, and then come and offer your sacrifice to God.”

In other words, you should go and tell your brother you are sorry and ask him to forgive you, and hence make peace with him!

But why does one need to settle matters with his brother first, before offering his gift to God?

The answer is found in Proverbs 21:27, “The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?” (KJV).

Anyone who, after offending his brother refuses to say sorry and get reconciled to him has a wicked mind. Such a person will suffer affliction (see Mathew 5:25-26).  He will not find favour with God until he has settled things with his brother.

I believe this is one of the reasons why some people who have been going from one healing meeting to another have not been able to receive their healing.

RECEIVE FORGIVENESS FROM YOURSELF
Even after receiving forgiveness from God or from others. You need to learn to forgive yourself.

Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “When he comes he will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness and of judgment” (John 16:8).

Until you understand righteousness, it will be difficult for you to forgive yourself.

Paul mentioned the breastplate of righteousness as a weapon of our warfare (Ephesians 6:14). Actually, he was urging the church in Ephesus to put on the breastplate of righteousness. But how do we put this on?

First, we must understand what righteousness means. You see, righteousness is the ability of the recreated human spirit of a believer to stand before God by faith without condemnation, guilt, inferiority, unworthiness or sin-consciousness as though he never sinned (Romans 5:17).

Second, we must understand that every child of God is the righteousness of God in Christ.

Paul wrote, “God made him (Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD” (2 Corinthians 5:21,NIV).
Because sin is evil, you must not toil with it. But if you sin, you become unholy. Do you know that if a believer sins, he is still the righteousness of God in Christ?

Though it can make you less righteousness-conscious. Righteousness is your nature. It is who you are. But holiness, in a sense, is your character (inward and outward). It is what you think, talk or do.

Third, we must become righteousness- conscious. Paul wrote, “Awake to RIGHTEOUSNESS and sin not” (1 Corinthians 15:34 KJV). Paul was saying, “Become conscious of righteousness which is your nature for it helps to stop playing with sin.” It removes sin-consciousness from you. It also helps you to forgive yourself.

STEP 3: REALIZE THAT SICKNESS IS FROM SATAN

Acts 10:38 reads, “ 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.”

Until you realize that sickness is from satan, you will not resist it. But the moment you realize that sickness is not from God, you will resist it. The Bible teaches that we should submit to God, but resist the devil. Until you resist the devil, he will not flee from you (James 4:7).

We see in Acts 10:38 above that Jesus did not oppress anyone with sickness or disease. Rather he went about doing good. He was healing all that were oppressed of the devil.

That means all the people he healed were oppressed or afflicted by the devil, not God.

Several years ago, John Graham Lake’s wife, Jennie, was terribly sick even to the point of death. As he threw his Bible down, it fell open to Acts 10 and verse 38 caught his attention.

As he read the words, ‘OPPRESSED OF THE DEVIL’ seemed to jump at him. Then for the first time, he realized the Jennie was oppressed by the devil, not by God.

Also he read a reference to that verse, “And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, who SATAN HATH BOUND, lo these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond… “ (Luke 13:16).

He contacted some friends to join him in prayer that his wife would be healed that very day. So at the set time, he knelt down by her bedside and prayed in faith.

Then Jesus the healer stepped in but Satan the oppressed fled. God’s power came upon her. Her paralysis left. She become well and lively again. She shouted, “Praise God,   I’ m healed!” She got up totally healed.

That happened in 1898.Bit Jesus has not changed. He is still the great healer of all who are oppressed by the devil. Are you being oppressed by the devil in your mind, emotion or body? The good news is: Jesus the healer, is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

James 1:16-17(NIV) reads:
“Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

This scripture is saying that all good and perfect gifts or things come from God. That implies if it is bad or evil like a sickness or disease, then it is not from God. It certainly comes from Satan who goes about to steal, to kill and to destroy (John 10:10).

The Bible says, “So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord and SMOTE JOB WITH SORE BOILS FROM THE SOLE OF HIS FOOT UNTO HIS CROWN” (Job 2:7).

I remember ministering to an elderly relation of mine who could not walk very well because of a problem in one of his legs. Knowing that it was not from God, I took authority over it. He was walking with the aid of a stick. After the prayer, I left him in front of their house.

Shortly thereafter, I was alone with my mum when this man came in without his long stick. He was so happy that he shared his testimony with my mum that I prayed for his healing and he had been healed. Thank God for Jesus is the healer. Just as that man received his healing from Jesus, so will you receive yours today in Jesus’ name.

STEP 4: BELIEVE THAT JESUS HAS ALREADY HEALED YOU

Peter wrote believers, “He Himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; By HIS WOUNDS YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED” (1 Peter 2:24, NIV).

Another version says, “… BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED” (1 Peter 2:24, KJV).

Do you know that Jesus paid the price for our sins as well as for our sicknesses? In fact, he paid for our sicknesses ever before he paid for our sins.

He died on the cross for our sins. But he received some stripes or lashes before he died-even before he was nailed to the cross.

It’s interesting to understand that this scripture above says, “… BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED” (JKV). The verb ‘were’ here is neither a present tense nor a future tense. Rather it is a simple past tense.

This does not read “… BY HIS STRIPES YOU WILL BE HEALED VERY SOON.” It does not say either, “BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE BEING HEALED RIGHT NOW.” No, a thousand times no!

Rather it reads, “BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.”  This means, “By Jesus’ stripes you were healed over 2,000 years ago. You healing took place then. You had been healed ever before you came to the earth!”

In other words, though, when you look at yourself you may see a sick person, a paralysed individual, a victim of HIV/AIDS, a patient of cancer, fibroid, tuberculosis, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, hernia, fracture, spinal injury, migraine, barrenness, blindness, dumbness, deafness ulcer, asthma, kidney stone, appendicitis, insanity or something else, yet when God looks at you, he sees you a hundred percent healed!

So you need to believe that Jesus had paid the price for all sicknesses and diseases that may fasten their deadly, ugly teeth against you and your loved ones.

Just as God had made provision for Adam and Eve ever before he made them, so he had made provision for your healing and health among other things ever before you were born into this world!

God planted a garden and put everything Adam and Eve needed there. Then he put the man there. The woman was later formed (Genesis 2:8, 15).
If you realize that God sees you as already healed and you believe it then be ready to walk out of that sickness or condition in your mind or body. Do you believe you were already healed?

Matthew confirmed it. Speaking about Jesus, it reads, “This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: HE TOOK UP OUR INFIRMITTIES AND CARRIED OUR DISEASES (Mathew 8:17 NIV).

The truth is: the sickness disturbing you had been taken up by Jesus before now.

But if he truly took and carried them away, why do they still affect your mind or body? It’s so because your thinking has not changed in this aspect.

The Bible says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). That means a man is whatever he thinks.

So if you think you were healed and believe it, then you will experience healing and health; but if you think and believe otherwise you won’t experience it.

This is where the subject of faith comes in. The Bible says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see… And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11: 1, 6, NIV).

Regardless of how you feel in your mind or body, regards of the worsening condition, just believe that you were healed a long time ago.

If you believe then you will see the glory of God (John 11:40). The problem with some folk is that they want to see God’s glory first before they believe. They want to experience the healing first before they believe.

But the Bible, “Now faith… is being certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews1:1, NIV).
“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst BELIEVE, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23).

Jesus touched the eyes of two blind men and healed them saying to them, “According to your faith be it unto you” (Mathew 9:26).

He told one or more people, “Your faith has made you whole (completely healed or restored to sound health)” [see Luke 8:48, Luke 18:42].

When Jesus got to his hometown, the Bible says, “He could not do any miracle there except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their lack of faith” (Mark 6:5-6, NIV).

You see, lack of faith will hinder you from receiving your healing, which is a forever- settled subject with God! But, if you will release your faith, you will see God’s glory!

STEP 5: CONFESS YOUR HEALING WILLINGLY AND BOLDLY

Jesus said, “ For verily I say unto you, that whosever shall I say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAITH.
Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever DESIRE, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:23-24).

The word ‘say’ or ‘saith’ is used three times while ‘believe’ is used twice in this scripture because what we say establishes what we believe.

The victory is in your mouth. There is a miracle in your mouth. Read that scripture again and again.

You have to speak persistently to that mountain of sickness or disease. Paul wrote, “Let us told fast the profession (confession) of our faith without wavering (doubting); (for he is faithful that promised;)” (Hebrews 10:23.

This means we have to keep on saying what God says about that condition despite human contradiction or medical opposition. To hold fast your confession of faith is to hold it firmly or stubbornly, neither loosely nor lazily!

CONFESS IT WILLINGLY
Jesus asked a sick fellow, “Wilt thou be made whole?” (John 5:6). In essence, he was asking, “Are you willing to receive your healing?”

I discovered that Jesus never healed anyone against their own will or desire. Similarly, you can’t receive healing against your own desire or will (see Luke 18:40-41).

Now, you have to confess your healing willingly. You have to confess your desire. Jesus said in that Mark 11:24, “… what things so ever ye DESIRE (want or are willing to get)…”

CONFESS IT BOLDLY
Hebrews 13:5-6 reads, “… For he said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
So that we may BOLDLY SAY, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Notice that this scripture teaches ‘FOR HE HAS SAID… SO THAT WE MAY BOLDLY SAY.’

The Living Bible puts ‘may boldly say’ as “… say without any doubt or fear.” A doubtful or fearful confession will nullify or paralyze your faith.

Years ago, when I was younger believer, I was coming back very early one morning from a vigil when suddenly I saw a small calabash or so by the road side containing some sacrifice to a god or whatever.

Without wasting time, I kicked it in holy anger. I never knew it would bring an attack on my health which I probably was unprepared-for.

Strange to relate, before long, I became sick and weak. I became worse and worse. I was stooling and vomiting perhaps at the same time. I tried to fight it off with my young faith but I didn’t receive my healing. My mother and one or two other people were concerned.

Out of curiosity mixed with desperation, I grab a copy of ‘Where There Is No Doctor’ – a health care hand book by David Werner. So I began to search to find out which of the disease there was afflicting me.

Unfortunately, when I got to page 172, I read about hepatitis – a liver disease; and devil convinced me that I had that disease.

I admitted it foolishly because the signs of it resembled the symptoms I was struggling with. Unconsciously, I began to confess, “I have hepatitis.”

On the other hand, I would confess, “By his stripes, I was healed”. I never knew I was having a double confession.

Then one night, I seemed to sense death approaching. Fear must have gripped me. I thought to myself, “So, I will end my life so early that I won’t fulfil the destiny God has for me. I’m not prepared to die this young. I’ve been looking forward to a great future in God but ….”

While suffering on my bed of sickness that night, God impressed  Proverbs 18:21  upon my heart. It reads: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

Then he made me understand that I was confessing death by saying, “I have hepatitis, but was confessing life by saying, “By his stripes, I was healed.” Then I realized that I had a double confession. That nullified my faith.

You see, the Bible says, “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth” (Proverbs 6:2).

Another Scripture says, “… But the mouth of the upright shall deliver them” (Proverbs 12:6).

Without delay, I confessed, “I don’t have hepatitis. By his stripes I was healed.” I later slept off. I woke up perfectly healed. It was as if I wasn’t the same person struggling to receive healing a few hours earlier. Glory to God!

Right confessions will always bring right results. E.W. Kenyon wrote, “You possess what you confess.”  How true that is!

STEP 6: ACT ON THE WORD OF GOD AS ONE ALREADY HEALED

James 1:22, 25 (NIV) reads, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. DO WHAT IT SAYS…. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, BUT DOING IT -  HE WILL BE BLESSED IN WHAT HE DOES.”

Are you a hearer or doer of the Word? There are many hearers but few doers. Anyone who hears the Word may rejoice about it, but only the one who does what it says can have the expected results! James says a doer of the Word will be blessed in what (anything) he does according to that word!

He continued, “In the same way, FAITH by itself, if it is not accompanied by ACTION, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds (actions), and I will show you MY FAITH BY WHAT I DO …. You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds (actions) is useless? …… You see that his (Abraham’s) faith and his action were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did ….. You see that a person is justified by what he DOES and not by faith alone …… As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without DEEDS (actions) is dead “(James 2:17-18,20,22,24,26,NIV).”

Your action will either agree to your faith or deny it. Your action will either prove your faith as living or disprove it as dead.  It will either correspond to your faith or contradict it.

One version put James 2:26 as, “FAITH WITHOUT CORRESPONDING (AGREEING) ACTIONS IS DEAD.”

So friend, having taken all the previous fire steps successfully, the next thing to do right now is to act on the word as one completely already healed by Jesus’ stripes or wounds.

If you have forgiven, and you have received forgiveness, and you realize that sickness is form Satan, and you believe that Jesus has already healed you, and you are constantly confessing your healing willingly and boldly, then get up from your sick bed right now.

Begin to do what you couldn’t do before. Ignore the pains and signs and symptoms. Give legs to your faith.

Put your faith in the word of God and in the power of God. Don’t trust in your five human senses. Do what you couldn’t do before. Move your leg, arm … That’s faith in action!

Kenneth E. Hagin was a boy of sixteen when he became bedridden owing to a deformed heart and an incurable blood disease. He was given up by the best of doctors in Mayo Clinic, USA. He was not expected to live to be seventeen.

In fact, he was warned that either disease could lead to his death. He was nearly completely paralyzed. His blood was light orange in colour. He was weak, skeleton-like and dying.

In desperation, he turned to the word of God and began reading. After sixteen months bedfast, he acted upon Mark 11:23- 24 in simple faith and was healed!

Jesus said in that Scripture, “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”

He believed this scripture and confessed that he was healed. Then he acted in faith as one already healed. He stood up from his sickbed and began to do what he couldn’t do before. His spoken faith and corresponding action put him over! He lived for almost seventy more years. He passed on at eighty-six years of age!

STEP 7: GIVE GLORY TO GOD FOR YOUR HEALING

Speaking of Abraham, the Scripture says, “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was STORNG IN FAITH GIVING GLORY TO GOD” (Romans 4:20, KJV).

This implies the strong faith will thank God in advance before the miracle or healing manifests but weak faith will only complain, murmur or grumble bitterly, which will eventually stop the miracle or healing from manifesting (please read Numbers 14:26-30)!

Isn’t it amazing that God said, “He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God”(Psalms 50:23 NIV)?

The King James Version says, “Whoso offereth PRAISE GLORIFIETH ME…” Friend, if you have carefully followed and obeyed all the previous six steps, then you should now began to thank and praise God for your healing.

In spite of what you feel in your mind or body, begin to praise him for your healing because God inhabits or dwells in the praises of his people (Psalms 22:3). He is enthroned on our praises!

No wonder, Paul wrote, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV).

He also wrote, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the father through him “ (Colossians 3:17, NIV).

When Jesus got to the grave of Lazarus, even before he raised him from the dead, he said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me…” (John 11:41-42, NIV).

I remember the story of the 10 guys with leprosy (an infections, deadly skin disease) who came to the Master for healing. Jesus said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests. And as they went, they were cleansed.
One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back PRAISING GOD in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and THANKED him…
Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found to return and give PRAISE TO GOD except this foreigner? “Then he said to him. ‘ Rise and go, your faith has made you well’” (see Luke 17:11- 19, NIV).

The King James Version put the last verse above (vs 19) like this: “And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way; thy faith hath made thee WHOLE.”

You see, all the ten lepers were cleansed by God’s power but the scars were still on their bodies.

But when one of them came back to give glory to God, Jesus told him in essence,
“Although you are cleansed, yet because you’ve come back to give glory to God for healing you, your body will be made whole (completely restored to perfect health without any scars, any dead skin layers or any traces of leprosy).”

I want to congratulate you on your healing because that thing will turn into a testimony for you in Jesus’ name (Luke 21:13).

Friend, as you are coming out of that mental or bodily sickness or disease, say this boldly,
“Thank God for giving Jesus to pay the price for our sins and sicknesses, unrighteousness and diseases. I thank you Father God because Jesus took up my infirmities or weaknesses and carried my diseases and sicknesses over 2,000 years ago.
I give you glory, O God for by his stripes or wounds, I was healed of ______________ (mention the sickness). I command you foul spirit of infirmity to leave my mind and body right now in Jesus’ name.
Thank you my Father because I don’t have _______________ (mention the sickness). Rather I have God’s healing and health in my mind and body in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah!”

As you act on God’s word, doing what you couldn’t do before, keep your faith confession strong and keep on giving glory to God. Be like Abraham who was strong in faith , giving glory to God!

“Let us hold fast the profession (confession) of our faith without wavering (shaking); for he is faithful that promised” (Hebrews 10:23, KJV).

SINNER'S CONFESSION

If you want to become a child of God now, then say this confession:
            "I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification. The scripture says, "If you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). Therefore, I believe in Jesus with my heart and confess him as my Lord. Now, I am born- again (Amen)."


SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

Also Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8).

And on the day of Pentecost  “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).

Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.

I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit…] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus’ name.

Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus’ name (Amen).

The Message: Why Some Are Not Healed (B)
 

11.   Discouragement due to cases of people who failed to receive their healing

Moses wrote, “The secret things belong to the lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law”(Deut. 29:29, NIV).

Sometimes, when God's word is preached, some people refuse to get saved, healed or delivered while some others are saved, healed or delivered!

We don’t always know why some are not saved, healed or delivered as already explained in chapter one, but that will never stop us from preaching Jesus, the Saviour, the Healer and the Deliverer!

There may be a hidden reason why they are not healed.

If you are discouraged because somebody did not get healed, delivered or saved; how about those who got healed, delivered or saved?

12. Looking at the sickness instead of acting in faith
     
‘The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.”     
So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by snake and looked at the bronze, he lived’(Num. 21:8-9, NIV).

The Scripture says that Abraham “considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb….. And being fully persuaded that what he had promised, he was able also to perform” (Rom 4:19, 21).

The truth is: as long as you consider the sickness or your affected body or mind, healing will be hindered.

But if you look unto Jesus and his word not considering your own body like Abraham, healing will come.

13.  Divine Judgment

Paul wrote, “Deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus” (1 Cor 5:5, NKJV).
 
If someone is living in sin or disobedience, God may allow sickness or disease to strike them as a form of warning or judgment.

Sickness or Disease as Warning

In this case, it may come as a caution to help one adjust or correct one's lifestyle or character before it's too late so as to avert untimely or premature death.

An example was Miriam who was leprous for 7 days. That was a warning (see Numbers 12:1-15).

Sickness or Disease as Judgment

When King Uzziah lifted up himself against God by standing in a ministry or calling God has not given him, God judged him with leprosy for his pride.

The Scripture says, “King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died” (2 Chr. 26:21, NIV). [Please read 2 Chr. 26:16 – 21 for details.]

Several years ago, one of the generals of God in America died prematurely.

But God had told a prophet there earlier that judgement was coming upon that minister for 3 reasons, namely:

   1. Love of food
   2. Love of money
   3. Lack of love for the brethren.

So the Lord turned him over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh.

That same prophet went to pray for a dying man on his sickbed. He tried to pray for his healing but couldn’t.

              Rather, the Lord
              told him to lay 
              hands on him to be
              filled with the Holy  
              Spirit and make his
              home-going more
              glorious!

The Lord explained that since the man had refused to repent of his sins for 35 years, he had been turned over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh.

The Lord revealed that this man had never lived a godly life for more than 2 weeks at a stretch for the past 35 years he had been a child of God.

Paul wrote, “But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgement. When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world” (1 Cor. 11:31 32, NIV).

So the man died.

14.  Refusing To Cast Out The Foul Spirit Causing The Sickness Or Disease

When the dumb and deaf boy who had convulsion was brought to Jesus, the scripture says, “When Jesus saw that the people were running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, “Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.” (Mark 9:25)
And the boy was healed (see Matthew 17:18).

Benny Hinn shared in his wonderful book: “The Anointing” how surprised he was when he first heard Reinhard Bonnke cry out, “You devil of blindness, I command you in Jesus’ name to come out.”
And blind people were healed!

So Benny who was new to this and who couldn’t remember having any blind person healed through his ministry decided to command blind spirits to come out of people in his meetings, and he got more blind people healed than he could have imagined possible!
 

15. In some cases, refusing to combine divine healing with natural or scientific healing or vice versa according to one’s level of faith

There are 2 dangerous extremes that can hinder people’s healing in this regard, namely:

i. Embracing Natural or Scientific Healing Without Giving Any Place To Divine Healing

The Scripture says, "In the thirty-ninth year of hia reign Asa was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though, his disease was severe, even in his illness, he did not seek help from the LORD, but only from the physicians. Then in the forty-first year of his reign, Asa died … “ (2 Chron. 16:12 – 13, NIV).

How many good people have died on their sickbeds because they did not seek help from God to fight their sickness or diseases? Such people put their confidence in physicians, pharmacists or surgeons.

The Bible warns, 'This is what the Lord says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD, … he will not see prosperity when it comes …
'But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him … It does not fear when heat comes …” (Jer. 17:5 – 8, NIV). 

“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man” (Ps 118:8).

It is worse and more deadly to seek help from Satan (through witch doctors, Islamic alfas, Ogbonis, sorcerers, and so on.) [See 2 Kings 1:2 – 4, 15 – 17].

ii.  Embracing Divine Healing Without Giving Any Place To  Natural or Scientific Healing.

The scripture says, “In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death” (2 Kings 20:1).

But when the king received the message that he would die, he prayed, wept and probably repented.

Then God sent the word to him, “… I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD” (2 Kings 20:5).

“And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.

“And Hezekaih said unto Isaiah, what shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?” (2 Kings 20:7 – 8).

You see, using the lump of figs was a form of natural healing for him. It helped to heal the boils but not the major sickness in this case.

Sometimes, God uses natural, scientific or divine healing to completely defeat major or minor diseases or sicknesses.

So God can use natural healing (through plants, animals or natural resources) as well as scientific healing (through western medicine or surgery) for us.

    God’s perfect will is for us to enjoy divine health: and if we ever need healing, to get it through personal faith in God’s Word!

Prominent Prophet Bill Hamon, who had been healed in the past through faith in the Word of God, couldn’t get his healing through faith in the Word at a particular time.

            Concerned, he sought God’s face for help. The Lord assured him to go for a surgery, which eventually was successful. But this prophet explained that the disease struck his body because he had neglected to write a book which the Lord had instructed him to write over and over again.

            So his disobedience hindered his simple faith in the Word from working for him.        
               
            Thank God for scientific healing with prayer that God used to rescue him until he could get himself back to obedience to God!

            Oretha Hagin, wife of healing minister Kenneth E. Hagin, was attacked by hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in 1963. The family doctor told her to visit a specialist but she was reluctant.

            Surprisingly, her husband who was away in another town received an instruction from the Lord to call her and tell her to go the specialist.

So Kenneth told the Lord he would call her in the night, but the Lord told him to call her immediately.

            So he obeyed and she went to the specialist immediately.
                
            If she had delayed going there, she probably wouldn’t have made it. She was tested, placed on medication, ‘special’ foods and rest.

            This condition continued but God used medical science and prayer to keep her alive until she could really connect her faith to God and obtained her healing by her own faith in God’s Word. Then she stopped taking her medicine. (Read her full story in her book: “The Price is Not Greater Than God’s Grace” pages 81 – 87).
 
            Why was it that God gave Oral Roberts the assignment to merge or combine prayer with medicine? God is not against medicine and surgery.
           
            But that is not God's best for us. It's just his permissive will.

            Afterall, the Bible says, "...But the just shall live by his faith" (Habak 2:4). It did not say, "... But the just shall live by medicine and surgery."

  16. Lack of new birth experience

          I believe with T.L. Osborn that there is no use receiving healing from God, without becoming his child, so that he can give you more strength to serve the devil.

           If you can become a child of God, then divine healing and health become your rights (see Matthew 15:22-28).

            For seventeen long years, I suffered from nocturnal enuresis (night bed-wetting). I remember my father taking me to a medical doctor to help but it made little or no difference. I took some natural herbs but all to no avail.

            All through both my primary and secondary school days, I suffered shame because of it. Being a boarding student, I became a laughing stock in my hostel among fellow students.

            On August the tenth, 1993, roughly a month after I finished from that boarding secondary school, I became a child of God - I became born-again.

            Immediately, I my life took on a new meaning. Without praying about it, I just noticed that nocturnal enuresis was gone forever from my life! Yeah, divine healing and health are my rights in Christ Jesus! Healing is for babes while health is for grown-ups!

            If you want to become a child of God now, then say this confession:
            "I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification. The scripture says, "If you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). Therefore, I believe in Jesus with my heart and confess him as my Lord. Now, I am born- again (Amen)."


SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

Also Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8).

And on the day of Pentecost  “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).

Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.

I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit…] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus’ name.

Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus’ name (Amen).

Today's Message Title: Why Some Are Not Healed (B)
 
(Healing & Health Series Part 2B)

Ministering: Segun Olumide

Introduction:

Two weeks ago, I began ministering on healing and health for your spirit, soul and body with the first instalment titled: "10 Things You Should Know About Healing" (You can get the full message from my book with same title).

Then last week, I shared 10 out of 30 Biblical reasons why some people are not healed.

Today, I want to share some more reasons why people are not healed. [The whole 30 reasons are covered in my book by the same title.]

I have 4 "Healing & Health Series," namely:

Part 1 - Ten Things You Should Know about Healing

Part 2 - Why Some Are Not Healed

Part 3 - How to Receive Your Divine Healing

Part 4 - Healing of Crushed Emotions & Disturbed Minds

The Message: Why Some Are Not Healed (B)
 

11.   Discouragement due to cases of people who failed to receive their healing

Moses wrote, “The secret things belong to the lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law”(Deut. 29:29, NIV).

Sometimes, when God's word is preached, some people refuse to get saved, healed or delivered while some others are saved, healed or delivered!

We don’t always know why some are not saved, healed or delivered as already explained in chapter one, but that will never stop us from preaching Jesus, the Saviour, the Healer and the Deliverer!

There may be a hidden reason why they are not healed.

If you are discouraged because somebody did not get healed, delivered or saved; how about those who got healed, delivered or saved?

12. Looking at the sickness instead of acting in faith
     
‘The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.”     
So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by snake and looked at the bronze, he lived’(Num. 21:8-9, NIV).

The Scripture says that Abraham “considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb….. And being fully persuaded that what he had promised, he was able also to perform” (Rom 4:19, 21).

The truth is: as long as you consider the sickness or your affected body or mind, healing will be hindered.

But if you look unto Jesus and his word not considering your own body like Abraham, healing will come.

13.  Divine Judgment

Paul wrote, “Deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus” (1 Cor 5:5, NKJV).
 
If someone is living in sin or disobedience, God may allow sickness or disease to strike them as a form of warning or judgment.

Sickness or Disease as Warning

In this case, it may come as a caution to help one adjust or correct one's lifestyle or character before it's too late so as to avert untimely or premature death.

An example was Miriam who was leprous for 7 days. That was a warning (see Numbers 12:1-15).

Sickness or Disease as Judgment

When King Uzziah lifted up himself against God by standing in a ministry or calling God has not given him, God judged him with leprosy for his pride.

The Scripture says, “King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died” (2 Chr. 26:21, NIV). [Please read 2 Chr. 26:16 – 21 for details.]

Several years ago, one of the generals of God in America died prematurely.

But God had told a prophet there earlier that judgement was coming upon that minister for 3 reasons, namely:

   1. Love of food
   2. Love of money
   3. Lack of love for the brethren.

So the Lord turned him over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh.

That same prophet went to pray for a dying man on his sickbed. He tried to pray for his healing but couldn’t.

              Rather, the Lord
              told him to lay 
              hands on him to be
              filled with the Holy  
              Spirit and make his
              home-going more
              glorious!

The Lord explained that since the man had refused to repent of his sins for 35 years, he had been turned over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh.

The Lord revealed that this man had never lived a godly life for more than 2 weeks at a stretch for the past 35 years he had been a child of God.

Paul wrote, “But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgement. When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world” (1 Cor. 11:31 32, NIV).

So the man died.

14.  Refusing To Cast Out The Foul Spirit Causing The Sickness Or Disease

When the dumb and deaf boy who had convulsion was brought to Jesus, the scripture says, “When Jesus saw that the people were running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, “Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.” (Mark 9:25)
And the boy was healed (see Matthew 17:18).

Benny Hinn shared in his wonderful book: “The Anointing” how surprised he was when he first heard Reinhard Bonnke cry out, “You devil of blindness, I command you in Jesus’ name to come out.”
And blind people were healed!

So Benny who was new to this and who couldn’t remember having any blind person healed through his ministry decided to command blind spirits to come out of people in his meetings, and he got more blind people healed than he could have imagined possible!
 

15. In some cases, refusing to combine divine healing with natural or scientific healing or vice versa according to one’s level of faith

There are 2 dangerous extremes that can hinder people’s healing in this regard, namely:

i. Embracing Natural or Scientific Healing Without Giving Any Place To Divine Healing

The Scripture says, "In the thirty-ninth year of hia reign Asa was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though, his disease was severe, even in his illness, he did not seek help from the LORD, but only from the physicians. Then in the forty-first year of his reign, Asa died … “ (2 Chron. 16:12 – 13, NIV).

How many good people have died on their sickbeds because they did not seek help from God to fight their sickness or diseases? Such people put their confidence in physicians, pharmacists or surgeons.

The Bible warns, 'This is what the Lord says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD, … he will not see prosperity when it comes …
'But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him … It does not fear when heat comes …” (Jer. 17:5 – 8, NIV). 

“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man” (Ps 118:8).

It is worse and more deadly to seek help from Satan (through witch doctors, Islamic alfas, Ogbonis, sorcerers, and so on.) [See 2 Kings 1:2 – 4, 15 – 17].

ii.  Embracing Divine Healing Without Giving Any Place To  Natural or Scientific Healing.

The scripture says, “In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death” (2 Kings 20:1).

But when the king received the message that he would die, he prayed, wept and probably repented.

Then God sent the word to him, “… I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD” (2 Kings 20:5).

“And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.

“And Hezekaih said unto Isaiah, what shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?” (2 Kings 20:7 – 8).

You see, using the lump of figs was a form of natural healing for him. It helped to heal the boils but not the major sickness in this case.

Sometimes, God uses natural, scientific or divine healing to completely defeat major or minor diseases or sicknesses.

So God can use natural healing (through plants, animals or natural resources) as well as scientific healing (through western medicine or surgery) for us.

    God’s perfect will is for us to enjoy divine health: and if we ever need healing, to get it through personal faith in God’s Word!

Prominent Prophet Bill Hamon, who had been healed in the past through faith in the Word of God, couldn’t get his healing through faith in the Word at a particular time.

            Concerned, he sought God’s face for help. The Lord assured him to go for a surgery, which eventually was successful. But this prophet explained that the disease struck his body because he had neglected to write a book which the Lord had instructed him to write over and over again.

            So his disobedience hindered his simple faith in the Word from working for him.        
               
            Thank God for scientific healing with prayer that God used to rescue him until he could get himself back to obedience to God!

            Oretha Hagin, wife of healing minister Kenneth E. Hagin, was attacked by hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in 1963. The family doctor told her to visit a specialist but she was reluctant.

            Surprisingly, her husband who was away in another town received an instruction from the Lord to call her and tell her to go the specialist.

So Kenneth told the Lord he would call her in the night, but the Lord told him to call her immediately.

            So he obeyed and she went to the specialist immediately.
                
            If she had delayed going there, she probably wouldn’t have made it. She was tested, placed on medication, ‘special’ foods and rest.

            This condition continued but God used medical science and prayer to keep her alive until she could really connect her faith to God and obtained her healing by her own faith in God’s Word. Then she stopped taking her medicine. (Read her full story in her book: “The Price is Not Greater Than God’s Grace” pages 81 – 87).
 
            Why was it that God gave Oral Roberts the assignment to merge or combine prayer with medicine? God is not against medicine and surgery.
           
            But that is not God's best for us. It's just his permissive will.

            Afterall, the Bible says, "...But the just shall live by his faith" (Habak 2:4). It did not say, "... But the just shall live by medicine and surgery."

  16. Lack of new birth experience

          I believe with T.L. Osborn that there is no use receiving healing from God, without becoming his child, so that he can give you more strength to serve the devil.

           If you can become a child of God, then divine healing and health become your rights (see Matthew 15:22-28).

            For seventeen long years, I suffered from nocturnal enuresis (night bed-wetting). I remember my father taking me to a medical doctor to help but it made little or no difference. I took some natural herbs but all to no avail.

            All through both my primary and secondary school days, I suffered shame because of it. Being a boarding student, I became a laughing stock in my hostel among fellow students.

            On August the tenth, 1993, roughly a month after I finished from that boarding secondary school, I became a child of God - I became born-again.

            Immediately, I my life took on a new meaning. Without praying about it, I just noticed that nocturnal enuresis was gone forever from my life! Yeah, divine healing and health are my rights in Christ Jesus! Healing is for babes while health is for grown-ups!

            If you want to become a child of God now, then say this confession:
            "I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification. The scripture says, "If you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). Therefore, I believe in Jesus with my heart and confess him as my Lord. Now, I am born- again (Amen)."


SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

Also Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8).

And on the day of Pentecost  “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).

Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.

I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit…] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus’ name.

Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus’ name (Amen).

Today's Message Title: Ten Things You Should Know about Healing
(Healing & Health Series Part 1)

Ministering: Segun Olumide

Introduction:
For the next few weeks, beginning from today, I will be ministering on healing and health for your spirit, soul and body.

I have 4 "Healing & Health Series," namely:
Part 1 - Ten Things You Should Know about Healing
Part 2 - Why Some Are Not Healed
Part 3 - How to Receive Your Divine Healing
Part 4 - Healing of Crushed Emotions & Disturbed Minds


The Message: Ten Things You Should Know about Healing

Point One ... Three Forms of Healing

Point Two ... Healing Can Be Received or Hindered

Point Three ... Healing Can Be Gradual or Instant

Point Four ... Healing Can Be Partial or Total

Point Five ... Healing Can Be Retained or Lost

Point Six ... Healing Is Not the Same as Deliverance; But Sometimes Deliverance Is a Precondition for Healing

Point Seven ... Healing Can Be for a Sick Body, Crushed Emotions, Deranged Mind or Wounded Spirit

Point Eight ... Healing Is Made Easy When the Three Main Causes of Sickness/Disease Are Dealt With

Point Nine ... Healing Is the Children's Bread while Health Is the Adults' Meat

Point Ten ... Healing Can Be Ministered or Received Supernaturally in Different Ways



Point One


Three Forms of Healing


There are 3 forms of healing, namely:

i. natural healing (plants, animals, natural resources, and so on)

Proverbs 24:13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

So honey is good for your health provided it's not too much!

Proverbs 25:27 (NIV) says, "It is not good to eat TOO MUCH HONEY..."

Original honey, which is a natural antibiotic, has been said to tackle cough, some skin infections, memory loss, wounds, and so on.

Isaiah 38:21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

Ezekiel 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

From Ezekiel 47 and Revelation 22 above, we can see the expressions: "the leaf thereof for medicine" and "the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" respectively.

Both are similar indicating that leaves are more of medicine for healing!

On the other hand, the expressions "the fruit thereof shall be for meat" and "which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month" from Ezekiel 47 and Revelation 22 respectively point to the truth that fruits are more of food for strength.

Generally, both leaves and fruits are good as food and medicine; but LEAVES are more as MEDICINES while FRUITS are more as FOODS!

In other words, fruits are more of preventive whereas leaves are more of curative. (Don't forget that both fruits and leaves are preventive and curative at the same time; but one is more preventive and the other is more curative.)

Have you heard this saying: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Prevention is still far better than cure.

A balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables will prevent and protect the body against sicknesses and diseases.

Some fruits and leaves are most effective when freshly plucked and taken in their raw form without cooking or boiling.

Some others are better cooked, but too much heat may weaken the natural powers of some while adequate heat may be necessary to bring out the greatest healing powers of some others.

A elderly man in the Bible school we run was healed years ago through natural leaves.

Actually, he had a kidney disease. The nurse treating him referred him to the hospital.

So he went to the General Hospital, but sadly, the doctors were trying to avoid him.

Eventually, he went back home. Then as he was listening to music, he received a divine message to use certain leaves for his treatment.

So he got those leaves and used them and was completely healed! Glory to God.

A woman testified to us that her fibroid was cured when the man treated her. And God has used natural leaves to cure quite some people through him. Praise GOD!

This man told me that the Lord instructed him to let the people squeeze the liquid out of the leaves and drink raw as it is more effective than boiling the leaves in water before drinking the boiled solution!

There was the story of a doctor in Taiwan who treated people with natural apple juice combined with other things for a period of 6 days. And the result?

Patients had their gallstones removed naturally without surgery! The healing power of apple!

No wonder it has been said over the years, "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away."

It is a fact that apple cider vinegar (from apple juice) and molasses (byproduct of sugarcane) can naturally shrink fibroids.

A man in the church I was pastoring then shared a powerfully strange, but true testimony.

He said a Nigerian man who had a swollen stomach met an Indian man or so who told him to go and drink his own urine.

He tried it out and defecated or shit a live tortoise!

Urinotherapy, which is using urine to treat sicknesses or diseases, has been said to be effective in healing almost any disease. It can combat tuberculosis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, infertility, kidney failure, liver problem, and so on. Please read "Your Own Perfect Medicine" by Martha M. Christy. It's one of the best books along this line.

1 Timothy 5:23 reads, "Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities."

This is non-alcoholic fruit wine, and not alcoholic wine.

Paul was instructing Timo to take little fruit wine (not much wine) in addition to normal water as natural remedy for his stomach trouble.

Water also has been discovered to help in preventing or treating some sicknesses or diseases if it's used correctly.

David Werner wrote in his wonderful book, 'Where There is No Doctor', "If people simply learned how to use water correctly, this alone might do more to prevent and cure illnesses than all the medicines they now use ... and misuse.
"If everyone living in farms and villages made the best use of water, the amount of sickness and death - especially of children - could probably be cut in half."

He gave the example that correct use of water is essential both in preventing as well as in treating diarrhea.

Then he gave a list of ailments for which water is frequently more vital than medicines.

Similarly, Don Colbert, medical doctor, noted in his fantastic book, 'The Bible Cure for High Blood Pressure', "Often an individual with elevated blood pressure is placed on medication when all he really needs is a drink of water. When high blood pressure is detected early enough, simply drinking two to three quarts of filtered water a day can usually bring it back to normal."

He also submitted that the best way to treat high blood pressure is to change one's diet and lifestyle (doing exercise, thinking rightly, resting well, recreating, living a relaxed life, being joyful, doing a job that is compatible with one's health and fulfilment, and so on), DRINK MORE WATER, reduce stress, lose weight as well as take nutritional supplements and minerals.

But he advised one to go for medication under a doctor if one's blood pressure is still high after using natural remedy.

A renowned prophet in this nation collapsed sometime last year while addressing some people. He was rushed to the hospital where he was put on a compulsory medication of 2 litres of water per day. He admitted that he had not been taking enough water.

His collapse was due to exhaustion: over-work and enormous pressure from people. So he needed rest as well as stress reduction.

I read an article online days ago about the health benefits of drinking water. It's recommended by health experts that one should take at least 8 glasses of water daily.

The writer explains that drinking enough water has been discovered to prevent colon cancer and bladder cancer. It also boosts energy and immune system of the body, helping the body to fight diaseses off.

Wonderfully, it controls mood swing so that there is emotional balance by reducing mental stress and depression.

Water is also a good sleeping medicine.1

I challenge you to research on the natural healing powers of moringa leaves, alovera leaves, and so on.

As matter of caution, don't get involved in invoking evil spirits into leaves before using them as some do. It's unscriptural.

ii. scientific healing (medicine or surgery)

Colossians 4:14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.

Luke, the writer of the Gospel according to Saint Luke and of the Acts of the Apostles was a doctor.

He witnessed the ministry of Jesus as well as those of the Early Church apostles, prophets and so on.

The question is: why on earth would God choose a doctor to follow his apostles and prophets around, travelling with them occasionally and eventually writing their stories?

I'm of the opinion that he probably gave them some medical advice on proper diet, rest, exercise, and so on.

Matthew 9:12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

The NIV puts Jesus' statement in Mat 9:12 above thus: "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick."

It's totally unwise to refuse a doctor's help when you need most, especially in an emergency!

How many church people: missionaries, pastors, women, children, and so on have died prematurely because they chose to ignore scientific healing based on the limited revelation they had?

God gave Oral Roberts, the late renowned evangelist, the great task of merging PRAYER and MEDICINE. (Read his book: "Still Doing the Impossible.")

Paul wrote 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part...
13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things (1 Corinthians 13:9,11).

Why should a church punish, discipline or excommunicate a member for taking medicine or undergoing surgery that God may use to save his or her life?

Solomon noted in ECCLESIASTES 7:15-18 (ASV) All this have I seen in my days of vanity: there is a righteous man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his evil-doing.
7:16 Be not righteous overmuch; neither make thyself overwise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
7:17 Be not overmuch wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
7:18 It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from that withdraw not thy hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth from them all.

The NIV renders verse 18 above thus: "It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. The man who fears God WILL AVOID ALL EXTREMES."

Anyone who condemns or forces people not to embrace medicine and surgery (when it is necessary) is either overrighteous or over-wicked, over-wise or foolish!

Most importantly, I also know that we should not build our faith on medicine and surgery, because it's just God permissive will for us.

His perfect will for us is to live beyond medicine and surgery, yes, to live on God's medicine, which is God's Word to bring us healing and health!

Remember that the Bible says the just shall live by his own faith; not faith in medicine and surgery, but faith in God's unfailing Word (Habakkuk 2:4).

You see, medicine and surgery may fail, but God's Word never fails.

A wise man has connoted that doctors can help to keep us alive until we can develop our faith in God and His word!

iii. supernatural healing (divine or demonic)

God's Supernatural Healing

Acts 10:38 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.

The Bible is full of supernatural healing testimonies.

Also Jesus has continued his healing ministry through different members of his body.

For example, R. W. Shambach shared the powerful story of how A. A. Allen was used of God to heal a little boy of 26 major diseases.

While ministering he received a word of knowledge about a less-than-3-year-old boy, and the mother ran out with the helpless boy! Doctors didn't expect him to live up to his first birthday.

He was born blind in one eye, deaf, dumb, tongue sticking out of his mouth, both arms deformed and crippled, both legs deformed and crippled, feet clubbed and his elbows touching his knees.

The mother put the boy in A. A. Allen's hands. And as he ministered or prayed, the boy's tongue withdrew into his mouth for the first time in his life.

God also gave him brand new eyes, unstopped his ears and loosed his tongue. His arms and legs stretched out and became normal while his bent feet snapped back to their places!

And for the very first time in his life, he could see, talk and walk! The crowd went wild with excitement and rejoicing.

The following Monday, the mum took him to the hospital and when the doctors received him, they refused to release him to the mother, but kept him all week and invited all the doctors all over the country who were involved in his cased.

All of them certified him completely and genuinely healed of 26 different diseases. He was given an affidavit! Glory to God!2

Satan's Supernatural Healing

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

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

There are counterfeit healings and miracles performed through magical powers.

I learnt from Kurt Koch, the Chinese minister, that if a believer for example, goes to a magician or sorcerer for healing of his leg, he may receive the healing, but then he may notice that he cannot read his Bible or pray again. He may begin to strange demonic experiences. He has sold out his soul to Satan!

Special Notes:
1. God can heal through any of the 3 forms of healing.

2. You may combine 2 or the 3 forms of healing sometimes to get the desired results.

3. Some sicknesses and diseases can only answer to God's supernatural healing.

4. Trust wholeheartedly and acknowledge God as your Healer naturally, scientifically or supernaturally.

2 Chronicles 16:12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.
16:13 And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and fortieth year of his reign.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
3:8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

5. It's sheer ignorance, deception or wickedness to preach against medicine, surgery or natural herbs condemning them as evil or sin as well as forbidding people from using them.

6. If Satan heals an unbeliever or a believer supernaturally, it has serious consequences.


Point Two


Healing Can Be Received or Hindered


Mark 6:5 And he [Jesus] could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
6:6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Jesus had success in his healing ministry, but not in his own hometown.

Their unbelief or lack of faith caused by familiarity complex hindered many from receiving their healing.

He only had limited results there. So he went about the villages teaching the Word because faith (which they lacked) comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Rom 10:17).

Some ignorant fellows will start calling a healing minister all kinds of evil names because they or somebody else did not get healed through that minister.

They are damned wrong for thinking that healing is automatic.

It's true that at times Jesus healed every sick person present in a meeting (Matthew 12:15, Luke 6:19). But at a particular time, he could not heal all the sick present except few.

Jeremiah 8:22 (NIV) Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?

Whether it was spiritual, emotional or physical healing of the Israelites, something hindered the healing.

So Prophet Jeremiah was lamenting because God the great physician could not heal them with his healing balm of Gilead!

Kenneth Hagin shared a remarkable testimony in his outstanding book, 'The Name of Jesus.'

He was praying at the bedside of a sick dying missionary when Jesus Christ appeared and stood close to the foot of the bed.

So he simply announced that Jesus had come to heal him.

Then he got out of bed, ran and stood in front of Jesus at the foot of the bed. Though he didn't see him, nevertheless he sensed His Presence.

The man tried to receive his healing from Jesus 3 different times, but each time he confessed "I can't. I can't receive my healing."

Then Jesus told Hagin in a sad tone that he had come to heal that man and he wouldn't allow him and that he would be dead in some days' time! What a pity!

So he died. But wrong thinking, believing and confession hindered his healing.

It was the fault of neither the Lord nor the healing minister, but of the sick man.

Sometimes, it could be the fault of the healing minister, but the Lord can never be at fault (Matthew 17:14-21, John 18:37-38).

I remember a time Oral Roberts was ministering healing to the Chinese people with the laying on of hands. (Actually, Oral Roberts had a special healing anointing in his right hand; William Branham had his in his left hand; while Kenneth Hagin had in both hands. Please be careful with the doctrines or heresies of William Branham for they can derail and destroy you! God raised him but he missed God and that led to his premature death. Read his story in God's Generals by Roberts Liardon.)

But unfortunately, none of them got healed in spite of the healing anointing on Oral Roberts. So after the meeting, someone explained to him that the Chinese didn't like that someone lay hands on them when praying for them. It offended them in a sense.

So he explained to them the following day before he started praying for them. In fact, he asked for a woman's permission before he laid hands on her. Then healing began to take place as expected!

By God's grace, I have written extensively on hindrances to receiving healing in my book: "Why Some Are Not Healed," which is volume 2 in this Healing and Health series.

It contains 30 different hindrances to healing as revealed in the Scriptures.


Point Three


Healing Can Be Gradual or Instant


Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Isaiah 38:21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

Natural, scientific and supernatural healing can be gradual or instant.

The word "recover" in these 2 scriptures above speaks of gradual healing.

Some get discouraged if their healing is not instant. They may begin to think maybe the healing minister is using demonic powers for healing or that the healing is false or imaginary.

Some healings are gradual for reasons best known to God. But I think he may want to teach the sick person some lessons as he recovers gradually.

At other times, it may be gradual due to the level of faith, preparation, consecration, sensitivity to God's Spirit or anointing of the healing minister.


Point Four


Healing Can Be Partial or Total


Mark 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
8:25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

Wow! I love this. As greatly anointed as Jesus was he had to pray for this blind man's healing two different times.

Some healing ministers, out of pride, might not want to minister healing two, three, five, or more times to the same sick person as the need arises and at the leading of God's Spirit.

Luke 17:11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
17:13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
17:18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
17:19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

You see, 10 lepers were healed, but only one of them was completely made whole.

There is a difference between a leper whose body parts have been eaten up getting healed and his being made whole.

After leprosy is healed, there are still some scars that need to go. There may also be the need for a new skin layer and so on!

How can I forget in a hurry the awesome healing testimony of a late renowned prophet?

Because of his disobedience in ministry, he had an accident and broke his arm.

He had to wear a sling. And the doctor told him that his healing would take quite some time, but the Lord told him He would speed up the healing process!

The most striking part of it was that the Lord promised to heal him 99 percent. And that was what He did. He would use the remaining 1 percent to keep him in check whenever he tried to yield to disobedience!

You see, 99 percent healing is still partial healing. There are people whom the Lord will never heal completely so that He can help keep them in the path of life, highway of holiness and track of destiny.

It's like the limp of Jacob that must have refused to go away (Genesis 32).

Sometimes, if the sick person is not fully ready to receive the healing or to live in full obedience to God, his healing may be partial.


Point Five

Healing Can Be Retained or Lost


John 5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath...
5:14 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.

Jesus was warning this man who had just been healed not to toy with sin so that a worse sickness or more terrible disease would not come upon him.

In other words, he was trying to admonish him not to lose his healing.

You see, it's easier to lose one's healing than to receive it!

Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
12:44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

As we can see from these two Scriptures whenever one loses one's healing or deliverance, one gets a worse ailment, disease or demonic oppression.

A wrong mindset, attitude or confession can make one lose one's healing.

You must make sure your heart is not empty, swept, and garnished but filled with God's Spirit, washed or cleansed with God' Word and decorated with the fruit of the spirit (John 15:3, Ephesians 5:25-27, Colossians 3:16, Ephesians 5:18, Acts 2: 1-4, Acts 4:31, Galatians 5:22-23).

Fred Smith, in his book: "God's Gifts of Healing," related the experience of Hiliary who after being healed began to have pains again. The prayer of her friend, Jeannie, helped the pains to leave each time she prayed.

Eventually, she denied her healing saying, "It wasn't God healing me after all, just some kind of electric shock."

Numbers 14:28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you.

That was the beginning of her mysteries and woes. Her pains came back powerfully until she was where she started from. She lost the healing!

As she spoke in the ears of the Lord, so did the Lord do to her. Our confessions will help or hinder our healing.

But it took her almost a year to receive her healing back. It was gradual, but certain.

About 9 years later, she was still completely healed and ministering healing to others. What a mighty God we serve!


Point Six


Healing Is Not the Same as Deliverance; But Sometimes Deliverance Is a Precondition for Healing



Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Luke 9:42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

In both scriptures above, casting out demons (commonly called deliverance) comes before healing the sick.

Of a truth, in Luke 9:42 above, Jesus had to cast out a devil before he could heal that child!

Jesus commanded his disciples in Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Luke 4:18 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,

We need to preach deliverance and healing first before we can minister deliverance and healing effectively to people with wonderful results.

Luke 4:18 implies that we are "to preach deliverance to the captives, and [to preach] recovering of sight [or healing] to the blind.


Point Seven


Healing Can Be for a Sick Body, Crushed Emotions, Deranged Mind or Wounded Spirit


Luke 4:18 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,

Anyone whose heart has been broken by friends or enemies, spouse or siblings, parents or children, sinners or saints can find healing in God.

How many people's hearts has been broken or crushed by loss of a relation or friend, loss of job or position, loss of money or possessions, loss of reputation or honour, loss of virginity, loss of opportunity, and so on?

No matter what has broken our heart, God says there is healing for the brokenhearted!

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

God is concerned about the well-being of our soul as well as that of our body according to this epistle or letter of John.

PSALMS 34:18 (BBE) The Lord is near the broken-hearted; he is the saviour of those whose spirits are crushed down.

My book: "Healing of Crushed Emotions and Disturbed Minds," which is volume 4 in this Healing and Health series, addresses this subject.

SINNER’S CONFESSION
If you are not yet born-again, say this:
I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification.
The Scripture says, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom 10:9).
Therefore, I believe in Jesus in my heart and confess Him as my Lord. Now I am born-again (Amen).

SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT
Also Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8).
And on the day of Pentecost “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).
Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.
I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit…] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus’ name.
Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus’ name (Amen).
