A CHALLENGING WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT

SOME THOUGHTS & A SAMPLE PRAYER ON HEALING!

“Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the Church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” – James 5:14-16

“No one patches up an old coat with a piece of new cloth, for the new patch will shrink and make an even bigger hole in the coat.  Nor does anyone pour new wine into used wineskins, for the skins will burst, the wine will pour out, and the skins will be ruined.  Instead, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins, and both will keep in good condition.”  – Jesus {Matthew 9:16,17 – GNB}

May God, by His Spirit, grant that we all would become FRESH WINESKINS in order that we might fully receive the NEW WINE [TEACHING] He has for us!

 1 - God's Name is "HEALER" – Hebrew = JEHOVAH ROPHE – "The LORD Who Heals" – Exodus 15:26

 2 - Jesus is "THE PHYSICIAN" – Luke 4:17-24 [He is the “Primary Care Physician” that people need!]

 3 - Hmmm.  What does God think about our priority [“Primary Care”] emphasis on human Doctors? – II Chronicles 16:12-14; Luke 16:15 [*** “When we depend on man, we get what man can do; when we depend on prayer, we get what God can do.” – “Mountain Movers” Magazine, March 1994, page 23]

 4 - Our Healing is provided – accomplished – paid for – secured in/through the Atonement.  "His Stripes" speaks of HIS BLOOD! – Isaiah 53:5; I Peter 2:24; “. . . Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” [Matthew 8:17 (Isaiah 53:4)]

 5 - Healing is a Spiritual Gift – I Corinthians 12:28-30

 6 - Jesus can Heal – Mark 9:22,23

 7 - Jesus wants to Heal – Matthew 8:1-3; Mark 1:40,41

 8 - Jesus is Forever the Same – Hebrews 13:8

 9 - God is Forever the Same (Hebrew = HUA) – Psalm 102:27

10 - The Lord wants His People to be in Good Health – III John 2

11 - About 65% of Jesus' time was spent in Healing – Matthew 4:23; Matthew 8,9,10,11("Teaching & Healing" - NEB Header); Matthew 9:35; Luke 6:19; Acts 10:38

12 - God Heals – Jeremiah 30:17a

13 - Healing is PROMISED in the New Testament – Mark 16:17,18 [not so in some older Manuscripts]; James 5:14,15

14 - Healing, Forgiveness (Salvation), Deliverance – these all go together.  In Mark 10:52, “made thee whole” (healed) could also be rendered, “saved thee.”  In “The Message Bible” it reads this way: “Your faith has saved and healed you.”  See also – Psalm 103:3; 107:20; Jeremiah 17:14; Mark 2:5-11; Luke 4:18; John 5:14; Acts 10:38; James 5:14,15; III John 2 – connect this with #3 above AND the following Scriptures that tell us there is no Forgiveness without the shedding of Blood – ["by His Stripes we are Forgiven/Healed"] – Hebrews 9:22; I Peter 1:17-21

15 - HEALING is GRANTED in response to PERSONAL FAITH – Mark 5:34

16 - HEALING is GRANTED in response to SOMEONE ELSE'S FAITH – Matthew 8:13; Mark 2:5

17 - HEALING is GRANTED in response to PRAYER and ANOINTING WITH OIL – James 5:14,15

18 - HEALING (DELIVERANCE) is GRANTED in response to PRAYER and FASTING – Mark 9:14-29 (29!) [not in some older Manuscripts]

19 - HEALING is GRANTED in response to RECOGNITION/CONFESSION OF [Faith in] JESUS' AUTHORITY – Matthew 8:5-13 (see #15 above)

20 – HEALING and GOOD HEALTH are an innate part of life in God’s Kingdom – Isaiah 35:10; Revelation 21:4; Matthew 6:10 (Luke 11:2)

21 - There seems to be a direct relationship between RECEIVING HEALING and –

        * MIND OVER MATTER             * THE "PLACEBO EFFECT"

        * POSITIVE ATTITUDE              * POSITIVE THINKING

All of which are various expressions of . . . .

                    * FAITH – Matthew 9:27-29 [as follows. . . .]

Two Blind Men spoke to Jesus:  “Have Mercy on us.”

                        “WE’RE BLIND AND WE WANT YOU TO HEAL US!”

Jesus spoke to Two Blind Men:  “Believe ye that I am able to do this?”

                        “DO YOU BELIEVE I CAN HEAL YOU?”

Two Blind Men spoke again to Jesus:  “Yea, Lord.”

                        “YES, SIR, WE DO BELIEVE!”

Jesus spoke again to Two Blind Men: “According to your faith be it unto you.”

                        “TO THE LIMIT AND TO THE DEGREE OF YOUR FAITH,
                        THE HEALING I HAVE FOR YOU WILL BE YOURS.” [Etc.
                        in other contexts]

God spoke of Two Formerly Blind, but now, Sighted Men:

            “And their eyes were opened....”

“THEY CONCEIVED IT; THEY BELIEVED IT; THEY RECEIVED IT!”

“THEY ENVISIONED HIS PROVISION AND GOT THEIR VISION!”

They believed - DO YOU?

“And [Jesus] did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief” – Matthew 13:58

“Jesus said unto [the father of the boy with a dumb spirit], ‘If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.’  And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, ‘Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.’” {“I do have faith, but not enough.  Help me have more!” - GNB} – Mark 9:23,24
