DIVINE HEALING 35

KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 145:8-9 “The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works”.

Another way to appreciate God’s healing provisions and to receive it, is to understand God’s mercy.

God’s mercy and compassion makes Him reach out to us to do us good.  Normally the same Hebrew word is used for both words, mercy and compassion. It therefore implies that to have mercy is to be full of compassion.

The mercy of God is His character that makes Him withhold what we deserve in terms of punishing us for our offences, but saves us instead. This is a very important character of God that should ignite in us a sense of acceptance, knowing that God desires to see us well.

 Let’s look at Mark 1:40, 42 “and there came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down to him. If thou will thou can make me clean. And Jesus moved with compassion put forth his hand and touched Him, and saith unto him I will be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed”.

According to the Law of Moses, Leviticus 13:45, the leper was to move around crying unclean, unclean so that people would keep away from him. If anyone was to touch Him, that person would be unclean for a whole day and must be purified.

The Lord Jesus knew this law yet out of mercy or compassion He stretched forth His hand and touched him and healed him. The man also inquired that if the Lord willed, He could heal him. The Lord out of compassion also said He wills. Please understand that for Jesus to touch the man meant he was identifying with him. The Lord did not heal this man because he was God, but according to the Bible because of His compassion .Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

 Dear child of God, the Lord’s compassion is always available to respond to the pain and hurt of humanity. Our key scripture says the Lord is gracious and full of compassion slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His work”. God is good to all. You are included. His tender mercies is over all His works or handiwork.

Please be confident that God is very compassionate towards you, and so, you must joyfully accept   your healing today.

 PRAYER

God my father, your compassion never fails, so I open up my heart to receive your provisions of health for me today. Thank you so much   Father, in Jesus name.

KEY SCRIPTURE: Mark 11:23  ” 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 whatsoever he saith”

We look further into how to speak to our bodies to effect. Changes in our health status. (I am making these repetitions to help you to be established in this truth)

I will first give an illustration to explain this point. I prayed for a sister who has been suffering from a health condition .She has been in this condition for quite a long time. After praying for her I asked her to always declare to her body that the condition is gone and she is completely well. I met her a few days afterwards and told me she has seen a great improvement in her condition. She added, I never knew one could speak to his or her body”. (Many people also. don’t know that too)

This is the truth.  God had ordained authority in your mouth (Psalm 8:2). Use your mouth to take you to where you want to be, and how you want to lead your life.

How does one speak to his or her body and get results?

Everything or action of the Christian must be done in faith, if it must attract God’s approval (Hebrews 11:6). Speak to your body in faith. React with anger and attack the condition declaring to it, to go. You can pray in tongues till you have the note of victory in your heart, and then prophecy over it. The scripture said in James 4:7   that you “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. Do this in faith. Doing something in faith is to have an assurance in your heart about what God has said.

Please after you made the first command for the condition to change, don’t stop talking to the condition. Keep declaring the word of God to your body. Tell the condition that it is well with you, and that it is gone. In such moments please don’t be occupied with the condition if it seems not to change. Your words of command in faith is perfecting everything for you. Everything responds to the word of God. So long as you are standing on God’s word to make those declarations be very confident you are winning.

Do not allow fear to enter into your heart. Keep your assurance in God’s word anticipating that everything is perfect, Hebrews 10:35 “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense of reward”. The verse 36 reads “for ye have need of patience that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise”.

CONFESSION

I would maintain my confession of victory, irrespective of what I feel, see or hear. My confidence always brings me great recompense of reward.

KEY SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 18:21” Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

In this study I wish to iterate (repeat) the importance of hearing and speaking God’s word for your healing. This is a very important act, yet many people do not practice it. They wait and hope something good happens to them.

Dear child of God something good would only happen if you would say or speak out the word of God and then act on it. Everyone is saved or born again through hearing the word of God and confessing what the word says about salvation. Romans 10:10 says “For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. Without this way no one can be saved. The principle is hearing the words of salvation, believing them and then saying it. For your healing you’ve got to do same. I wish to illustrate this with a story Rev. Kenneth Hagin once shared.

He said he went to pray for a woman who had been diagnosed with cancer. He shared the word of God with this so called hopeless case. The lady received the word and kept saying God’s word to herself. (She said something like; with the stripes of Jesus i am healed)After sometime the doctors who diagnosed her to have cancer could not find any trace of the cancer cells in her body. She was healed by hearing and speaking God’s word.

It takes one’s faith to activate God’s Power into operation. God would always want His children to be whole. It takes them to exercise their faith in God. All that you need to do is to hear God’s word. Keep hearing the word. Then confess the word, and keep confessing the word. Do not doubt the word but thank the Lord that everything is well with you.

If doctors have told you there is a problem with your reproductive system, please do not be dismayed and throw in the towel. Look for one or two scriptures that talk about fruitfulness. Read them and start saying them to yourself. God raises the dead and calls that which be not as though they were.

 *As your God your Father is, so are you. You have creative power in you use it

   CONFESSION

The word of God in my heart and my mouth is just like God declaring them. I have whatever I believe and declare according to the promise of scripture.

DIVINE HEALING 32

KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 6:20 ” For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s”.

Our key scripture tells us we have been bought with a price; the precious blood of our Lord Jesus. We must therefore glorify God in our bodies and in our spirit. To glorify God in your Spirit is to lead a life that is upright and holy. A life where sin has no dominion over you. Note this: it is our duty to lead a life devoid of sin.

The scripture also said, we must glorify God in our bodies. To glorify God in your body implies we use our body to honour His name. Doing acts of righteousness and bearing fruits with our body. How can you glorify God that way, when sicknesses take over the body? It is your duty and right to take control over your body so it does not come under Satan’s sicknesses. Your body must not rule you. Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable unto God, which is the reasonable service”. We have to control how our bodies behaves in all things

One way to do this is to learn to speak God’s word to your body. You command the body to align to God’s word. Sickness is not God’s will for you, so tell your body to respond to health in the name of Jesus. (Never be afraid when doing it)

 Our Lord Jesus taught us to speak to anything we wanted a change. He taught us to speak to the mountains, the waves of the sea, diseased bodies, blind eyes and even dead bodies.

We learnt that when we made decrees or commands in His name, He would do it. Tell your body to align according to God’s word. Note: what you don’t confront has the right to stay.

 The Lord has assured us if we will ask in His name, He will do it. He is always with us. Stop complaining about your sick body, complains will bring no change to you. Speak to it. Believe God’s word, exercise authority over your body.

 When you first command the sickness to go, don’t continue to command it to go, rather continue telling it, it is gone by the power and authority in the name of Jesus.

 Your persistence would win.

CONFESSION

I have received the right to use the name of Jesus. Every wrong condition in my body is corrected, every system, organ tissue and cell is functioning perfectly in Jesus name.

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:13-14  ” And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

In our previous study we began learning about the authority in the name of Jesus and our right to use the name.

Our key scripture states that whatsoever ye shall ask in my name that will I do” verse 13. According to the strong Exhortation Concordance the meaning of the Greek word translated “ask” in John 14:13, 14 implies demand of something due. The Lord told the disciple, if you shall ask (demand) anything in my name, i will do it. Our Lord was not referring to prayer (that is asking the Father in the name of Jesus) here. He was talking about using His name as a basis for authority.

Let’s take a study about the healing of the cripple who laid at the beautiful gate to the temple. Acts 3:1-16. Apostle Peter did not make  request to the Father; rather he demanded that the lame man be healed by being set free from Satan’s dominion (sickness is an oppression of the devil, according to Acts 10:38).

This man was healed not because Peter was so special, but through the power in the name of Jesus. The apostle Peter said “And His name through the faith in His name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yea the faith which is by him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all “. (Acts 3:16)

Jesus name always carries so much power to effect anything good that Jesus would have done, if He was physically present the problem with most of us is that we have become too familiar with the name. We use it so casually. In effect we have a wrong thinking about His name. When one’s believe is wrong your confession would also be wrong.

Please know that the name of Jesus is higher than every situation. (Philippians 2:10, 11). The name is not also a good luck charm. No! Not at all. Don’t say words like, “May something good comes out of using this name”.

The Lord Jesus is person who is ever present by the power of the Holy Spirit. Whenever you make that demand, know for certain that He would take charge of the situation.

 PRAYER

Nothing would prevail over my peace and health. I command every enemy attacking my body to lose its hold right now and depart in Jesus name Amen.

DIVINE HEALING 30

KEY SCRIPTURE: 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”.

To walk in health and to enjoy the Lord’s healing you must know the authority in the name of Jesus and how to use His name.

The name of Jesus is given to the church to live and do the very things our Lord Jesus did. After His resurrection He announced to the disciples, Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go therefore…..” The Lord said every authority in heaven and earth has been given to Him and therefore we must go and act in His name. The Lord gave us the power of attorney. This meant He gave us the right to use His name.

The name Jesus would unlock every door. His name means Jehovah is saviour. In Hebrew language His name is Yeshua. Jesus is the English form of the Hebrew name Yeshua. Acts 4:12 reads “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

What happens when His name is mentioned? John 14:13 “And whatsoever you shall ask in my name that will I do, that the father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name I will do it”. Please read carefully, the Lord said when you make a demand for some condition to change or for something to respond in the name of Jesus, He would do it. He meant I would always respond when my name is mentioned for a condition to change. He says where ever two meet in his name, he is there.

A mother brought her daughter who has been suffering from Asthma to me. This mother has sent the daughter to various places even to places where incisions were made on her skin with blood flowing out yet to no avail. When the mother brought her, I quoted John 14:13, 14 to her. I explained that as I mention the name of Jesus, Jesus Himself would come to the daughter through the power of the Holy Spirit and heal her.  As I commanded the devil to leave her, the mother who was holding the child went to the floor. The child was instantly healed. It has been about five years now and this child is still healed.

What is the condition threatening you? The Lord Jesus is ever present to come to the scene when you call on His name.

 PRAYER

In the name of Jesus I exercise authority over my body demanding everything to align well for a perfect health.

DIVINE HEALING 29

KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 10:10 “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”.

Our next step to consider concerning receiving healing is to CONFESS YOU ARE HEALED AND THEN ACT ON IT.

Our key scripture teaches us about consummating our salvation. It says you believe with your heart unto righteousness and you confess with your mouth unto salvation. The same thing goes for receiving your healing. After looking at the word and believing the revelation of the scripture on healing, the next thing is to confess with your mouth that you are healed and then you act on your confession by arising from your sick bed.

Faith without confession (action) is never complete. All creation respond to words and instructions. The Bible says without the word nothing was made or created.  God said, let there be and there was (Genesis 1:1-8). This has been the principle for bringing things to pass in this world. (Hebrews 11:3)

In Mark 11:14, the Lord Jesus cursed a fig tree, which dried up by the next morning. His disciples   were astonished when they saw it. The Lord said to them “have faith in God”. The marginal rendering of this statement is, have the God kind of faith.  Jesus then went further to explain what he meant by the God kind of faith in verse 23 of Mark 11. The Lord said in effect that anyone who says to the mountain be thou removed and go into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe in his heart shall have whatsoever he says.

The principle is believe what the word says in your heart. Say it with your mouth and then act on it. Arise out of your sick bed.

When Apostle John and Peter met the impotent man at the beautiful gate, they declared to him be healed in the name of Jesus, yet they did not stop there, he held his hands and lifted him up. It was then that strength came to his ankle bone and started walking, jumping and praising God. (Acts 3:1-14)

What happens when we confess the word?. Saying or confessing the word strengthens your assurance of the word in your heart. That is, it strengthens your faith. Secondly the angels of the Lord excel in strength and do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. (Psalm 103:20). The angels obey the voice of His word. Speak His word, by His stripes I am healed. The angels would obey and establish your healing.

CONFESSION

I believe with my heart that my Lord Jesus bore my sicknesses and pains in His own body. I cannot bear them too if He has already borne them. I am healed from all diseases in Jesus name.
