One healed restored mind: emotive-cognitive behavioral functioning

jesus healed the mind
Jesus heals and restores sound mind

Many Christians find that not all who are suffering from challenges in their mind are healed from the symptoms and the causes thereof.
Why? This is a question that really bothers those who practice divine healing. Why do mental patients seem to find it harder to receive healing? Are there scriptural evidences that mental conditions that torment a person may be healed like that of physical conditions? If so, where are the evidences in the Bible? This is our topic today. Christianity is all about effective successful functioning living in the power of God and His words (life and spirit. John 6:63) for all who believe.

Let us read the following Bible verses (God’s words) with a heart that is opened to the Lord’s Spirit. Here is a brief summary of key positive healing words for all believers I find from the verses: They refer to our thought life and our own behavior. What we put in our heart and actually come out. Evidences of our inner lives that others can see.
One mind. Sympathize. Love. tenderhearted. humble attitude. bless and not curse or seek revenge. speak no evil (it also means do no evil. speaking is equivalent to doing). turn away from evil. do good. seek peace. work to maintain peace.
worship Christ as Lord of your life. Gentle, respectful, keep your conscience free. 

The two keys to living a powerful Kingdom of God life: Living the life in the Spirit, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

1 Peter 3:8-22 (NLT)
All Christians
8 Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters.[a] Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. 9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing. 10 For the Scriptures say,

“If you want to enjoy life
and see many happy days,
keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies.
11 Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
and his ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord turns his face
against those who do evil.”[b]

Suffering for Doing Good
13 Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.

15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. 16 But do this in a gentle and respectful way.[c] Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.

17 Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong!

18 Christ suffered[d] for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.[e]

19 So he went and preached to the spirits in prison— 20 those who disobeyed God long ago when God waited patiently while Noah was building his boat. Only eight people were saved from drowning in that terrible flood.[f] 21 And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from[g] a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

22 Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers accept his authority.

Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom
Ephesians 1:15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,[e] 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom[f] and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.[g]

19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.

Footnotes:

1:17 Or to give you the Spirit of wisdom.
1:18 Or called, and the rich and glorious inheritance he has given to his holy people.

Practical application:
1. repeatedly listen to the Bible verses.
2. copy down the verses.
3. worship God.
4. keep mind under the control of the Holy Spirit and the resurrection power of Christ.
5. take Holy Communion.
6. use our mouth to proclaim God’s positive words.
7. keep our mind thinking of thoughts of God’s goodness.
8. As Paul has taught, keep praying in tongue.
9. fellowship with other Christians who practice these.
10. be baptized by the Holy Spirit and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Living a Life of Fire and Faith quotes

I am led today to share some quotes from an evangelist of our time. Recently I have been interceding using the word “fire”. Today I suddenly thought of this evangelist’s autobiography, but I forgot its title. After I searched the internet I found that it’s aptly called, “Living a Life of Fire: An Autobiography” by Reinhard Bonnke. Indeed, it’s a time to call down supernatural fire. Many are suffering, oppressed, persecuted and lost. Some are forever lost without Jesus. Is this a time to build our own bigger and more luxurious houses with fancier ceilings? Good reminder from the old prophet Haggai. What is your call? That is the crux of the matter.

“It is said that resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for your enemy to die. There is no room for such a waste of energy in the service of God.”

“You have faith stories, too. No matter how small, remember them, recite them, count them, and celebrate them. They build your faith for what is coming next in your life.”

“When people decide not to take risks, this is why. They fear they might suffer unexpected consequences. And, as my ulcers and depression proved, the risk is real. But is that reason to hang onto the past? To cling to mediocrity? No. Doing that is the first step along the path of seeing a living faith become a dead one. The old place, the old building, the old method, the old success, is comforting. The new step is frightening. We must place our trust completely in God to move beyond these comfort zones in life.”

“Divine healings were signs and wonders to confirm the preaching of the gospel. He took the sick man by the hand and commanded that”

“When you pull up roots in order to fulfill a divine destiny, there is not a sense of pain or loss. Rather, there is a great expectation for things to come.”

“The need is not the call. This piece of wisdom has saved the lives of many a missionary, especially in Africa, where the needs are so great that they can pull you to pieces. A missionary can put out so many fires trying to meet needs around him that he suffers burnout. I have known missionary friends who said, “I hear the cry of lost souls calling me into the mission field.” These workers are headed for the missionary bone yard. They have responded to the call of the need rather than the call of God. We must go where God sends us, speak what He gives us to speak, hear His voice and obey it – this is our best protection from burnout. It will also guide us to the very best strategy for accomplishing His mission. For everything a man does to follow the call of God, there are ten things he does not do. We cannot do everything. We must focus on the call and not simply the needs.”

Faith: The Link with God’s Power by Reinhard Bonnke

“We do not first acquire the faith that we bring to Scripture. Scripture encourages faith. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).”

“Commitment Now, nobody can have unity on his or her own. You cannot be married on your own. There is no such thing as an independent believer. You cannot have unity by belonging nowhere.”

“Jesus did not call them—or you and me—to ditch their smiles and to wear sackcloth. His mission was not to turn people into “stick-in-the-muds.” Jesus Himself was not very conventional! The disciples caught His infectious spirit, one that would challenge the stuffy establishment. He showed them new things, especially faith and love, by which, they would conquer the world.”

“God the Deliverer The primary truth about God is that He is the Deliverer, the Emancipator, and the Savior. He is God only to the free. Faith is a venture that turns life into an adventure.”

“The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity. He is the bonding element. This bonding is a wonderful effect of faith in Christ. It is creative. It brings about a new kind of oneness not even known in the closest of earthly families.”

“Faith…needs to be matched with action. Belief is not just brain cells in motion. It demands a response. Do we do what we believe? If we believe in a seed, we plant it.”

The following write-up is quoted from : http://www.cfan.org.sg/about-reinhard-bonnke.html

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is principally known for his Great Gospel Crusades throughout the Continent of Africa. The son of a pastor, Reinhard gave his life to the Lord at age nine, and heard the call to the African mission field before he was even a teenager. After attending Bible College in Wales, and his ordination in Germany he pastored a church and then went on to start missionary work in Africa. It was there, in the small mountain kingdom of Lesotho, that God placed upon his heart the vision of ‘the continent of Africa, being washed in the precious Blood of Jesus’ — an entire continent, from Cape Town to Cairo and from Dakar to Djibouti that needed to be reached and to hear the proclamation of the signs-following Gospel.

He began holding meetings in a tent that accommodated just 800 people, but, as attendance steadily increased, larger and larger tents had to be purchased, until finally, in 1984, he commissioned the construction of the world’s largest mobile structure — a tent capable of seating 34,000 people! Soon, attendance at his meetings even exceeded the capacity of this huge structure, and he began open-air Gospel Campaigns with an initial gathering of over 150,000 people per service! Since then, he has conducted city-wide meetings across the continent with as many as 1,600,000 people attending a single meeting using towering sound systems that can be heard for miles.
Picture
It has now been some thirty-five years since Reinhard Bonnke founded the international ministry of Christ for all Nations (CfaN), which currently has offices in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Africa, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.

Since the start of the new millennium, through a host of major events in Africa and other parts of the world, the ministry has recorded 55 million documented decisions for Jesus Christ.

As part of the discipleship-training program, 185 million copies of CfaN follow-up literature have been published in 103 languages and printed in 55 countries. Millions of books have been printed and freely ‘seeded’ in nations around the world. All this is in addition to the ‘Reinhard Bonnke School of Fire,’ an online, self-study course, aimed at inspiring others to Holy Spirit Evangelism and leading to either a certificate or university credits.

Reinhard Bonnke is also recognized for hosting ‘Fire Conferences’ in many different countries of the world, events that are aimed at equipping church leaders and workers for evangelism; for distributing over 95,500,000 copies of Minus to Plus, a profound salvation message, to homes around the world; and for seeking every opportunity to reach and to save the lost.

More recently, Bonnke has spent several years developing the ‘Full Flame Film Series,’ a series of eight inspirational films aimed at inspiring and challenging the church to Holy Spirit evangelism.

Evangelist Bonnke is married to Anni, father to Kai-Uwe, Gabrielle, and Susie, and grandfather to eight grandchildren.

Decisions Determine Destiny (a call)

andrew-wommack-teachesI have decided to share this letter as I have subscribed and partnered with Charis Bible College World Outreach. By faith I decided sowing the seed of a mere $30 a month. What is a $30 to you? To a person not living in a developed world it could mean a lot. By faith I am also a registered first year correspondence student with the Charis Bible College through one of their overseas branches. I agreed with Andrew that “Decisions Determine Destiny”. I was born again in 1983 and for twenty years I tried to read the Bible and live the Bible way. I invested a fortune in buying many costly reference and commentary books from many theologians before I heard of Andrew’s free teaching. Despite the good intention and my zeal to serve God and live a better life (more abundant life) I increasingly realized that my discipleship ministry had no power and the word taught to me had no reality as they were mere words (in black and white letters). Finally I decided to listen to the free audio teachings of Andrew, which someone gave me around 2003 and the truth of the Gospel of Christ with special emphasis on God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith has changed my destiny. The difference is obvious. Andrew teaches the Word differently. The powerful change to my way of thinking has changed my life. The Word becomes life and spirit to me. My God is now real. My life and ministry have been transformed. What happened? My mind has been renewed. The change is significant. I thank the Lord now for the divine appointment without which I would have missed out my true destiny. Andrew’s vision forty years ago has in turn birthed many others’ (including mine).

~~~~~~~~~Here is Andrew’s letter~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m sure you’ve heard the statement “Life is a series of choices.” To some, that’s too simple, but it really is true. Your decisions determine your destiny.

Jamie and I recently took a vacation. We didn’t get in the car and just go in any direction; we had a goal, and every turn we took was calculated to help us reach our destination. We checked the map often and made a few adjustments when we missed a turn. We didn’t do it perfectly, but we got to where we wanted to go, because of decisions.

Likewise, you make decisions every day that move you closer to your God-ordained destiny—or away from it. There is no such thing as just sitting still or putting God’s plan for your life on hold. That’s a deception. God’s will for you is intertwined with His will for others, and that is a constantly moving and changing dynamic. It’s like catching a flight. You can miss it.

It’s true that the Lord can get you to your destiny another way. He’s certainly smarter than a GPS device that “recalculates” when you miss a turn. There is always a later flight with God. But who wants the hassle, disappointment, and delay that comes with missing a connection? I want God’s best. Don’t you?

When you are on a road trip, those who are ahead of you can be valuable sources of information. It doesn’t matter how you feel about them personally. The fact that they have already driven the road gives them insights that you need. They can tell you what accommodations and restaurants are available. Or they can let you know of a wreck or construction ahead and then advise an alternate route. You would be foolish not to draw on the insights of others who have gone before you.

With that in mind, we have put together a number of what we call Destiny Stories. These are the stories of individuals who have made choices that changed their lives for the better. They are people just like you, with challenges, failures, pasts, and even successes that stood in the way of them following God’s will for their lives. But with a few good decisions, they made their lives count.

Take, for instance, Kevin and Rachel Dowling. They were living on the streets of New York. Homeless and helpless, they were dope addicts with no good future. But through a woman at one of the soup kitchens they frequented, they found the Lord and His love. Five years later, they were free from dope, but still lacked direction for their lives. They decided to come to Charis Bible College (CBC) in Colorado Springs, and everything began to change.

Not only have they been set free from the feelings of unworthiness and shame that dominated their lives, but now they are bringing others into their newfound freedom. The ones who used to sleep in cardboard boxes and eat out of trash cans are now providing food and the Gospel to thousands of other people who need a new destination.

Or take Leland Shores, who was a successful businessman in Dallas, Texas. While he lay on the floor, nearly choking to death on a sandwich, his life flashed before him, and he knew that all of his “successes” were worth nothing. When he recovered, he made the decision to sell everything he had and dedicate his life to the Lord.

That one decision led Leland to CBC and eventually Africa, where he helped establish the Discipleship Evangelism course, which has now reached nearly 500,000 people. Leland also established the AWM bookstore in downtown Kampala, Uganda, where hundreds of people have been born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit. If that weren’t enough, Leland started CBC-Uganda, with over 100 students who are changing Uganda.

Leland died unexpectedly in June 2011, but in the eleven years since he made the decision to make his life count for the Lord, he did more than most people do in a lifetime. And because Leland’s emphasis was on discipleship, his disciples are continuing the work he began. Numerous people have been raised from the dead through those Leland reached. Disciples are ministering on the radio daily, and others are holding crusades with signs and wonders. Leland’s impact is just beginning.

Carrie Pickett is a young woman who came to our college fresh out of high school. She had known that the Lord had a call on her life since she was a little girl, but she was transformed by the Word and her missions trip to Russia. God put a love in her heart that she has been following for the last thirteen years in Russia.

Some would think of all that Carrie gave up to go to Russia. She’s an attractive young lady who put her personal desires for a family on the altar to serve the Lord. But God had the perfect husband for Carrie—in Russia. She would have missed him if she hadn’t followed the Lord to the ends of the earth. Now she and her husband, Mike, have a beautiful daughter, Elliana.

Their lives are making a big impact. They not only have established a CBC in St. Petersburg, but they also have a goal of starting 1,000 new Bible colleges in the next five years and are well on their way to seeing the completion of that vision. They were also responsible for getting my books and television broadcasts translated into Russian. Through their efforts, the Gospel Truth television broadcast now reaches 160 million homes in Russia every weekday across eleven time zones. They also direct our AWM-Russia office, which ministers to thousands of Russian-speaking people throughout the world.

What would all of these people’s lives have been like if they hadn’t made the decisions they did? An even greater question might be, what would the lives of the millions of people they’ve affected have been like without them? Every one of us has a God-ordained destiny that is designed to touch others. We are carrying other people’s miracles. I don’t think we can fully comprehend this. It is certain, however, that the lives of millions of people were changed simply because these “heroes of the faith” made the right decisions.

Are you certain that the decisions you are making every day are the ones the Lord wants you to make? If you can’t answer that affirmatively, then what is stopping you? Most people don’t intentionally decide to miss their destinies; they just get busy with the cares of this life, and before they know it, they are in a rut that they can’t seem to get out of.

But remember, your life is the result of choices—YOUR choices. Others can influence or hinder you, but your choices are the determining factor of your destiny. It is never too late to make the right choices.

My spiritual life started with making a choice. I had been seeking to know the Lord’s will for my life when He directed me to Romans 12:1-2, which says,

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

He showed me His will for my life was to be completely committed to Him. That’s the main thing. I was only seventeen years old at the time, but I started seeking to become a living sacrifice to the Lord with all my heart.

That decision led to a miraculous encounter with the Lord on March 23, 1968, when God revealed Himself to me in a way that changed my life forever. I have never been, and will never be, the same. I made an absolute and complete, unconditional surrender to the Lord that has propelled me to the life I live today. I’ve made thousands of decisions since then, but the decision to unconditionally follow God’s will for my life started it all.

The fact that you are receiving this letter is the result of decisions made by you and me. I decided to follow the Lord and teach His Word, and you decided to contact us in response to something He spoke to you through me. Our lives have been connected because of decisions. Decisions determine destiny.

My study of the Word of God has been the single most influential force on my decisions. God’s Word is a light to our path (Ps. 119:105). It’s like I explained in my book Effortless Change, all we really have to do is put the seed of God’s Word in our hearts, and it will change us effortlessly. That’s how God established His kingdom.

Charis Bible Colleges are changing the lives of thousands of people through the ministry of God’s Word. We now have about 2,000 people involved in correspondence courses, online Bible courses, and our eighteen campuses. But we are reaching the limits of the number of people we can accommodate here at our campus in Colorado Springs.

As you know, I saw this coming, and the Lord directed me to start preparing for a Bible college campus where we could train at least 3,000 people. We purchased 157 acres in 2009 and just got released from some legal issues in June 2011. We are now in the final stages of getting all the work permits. It might be possible to break ground in November, but with the weather in Colorado, that could be tough.

I’ve decided to have a groundbreaking on March 23, 2012, the forty-fourth anniversary of my miraculous encounter with the Lord. That is the night I made a decision that has led me to this place. I think that beginning date is providential.

I encourage you to go to our website and view the special live-streaming internet broadcast I did back in July. I fully discussed where we are in the process of building this Bible college campus and where we are going with it. I also asked that you help me make another decision.

Our CBC campus will have two main buildings. Together they will give us 220,000 square feet of space to train the men and women who will be world changers. That’s twice the space we now occupy, and there is plenty of room for expansion if needed. But constructing these buildings is costly. Therefore, I am currently in the process of making a decision on whether I should build one building as a first step or build both of these buildings at the same time.

I’ve decided the Lord wants me to do this debt free. I’ve witnessed other ministries make decisions that put them under financial pressure, and it changed their ministries. I’ve decided not to do this. These buildings are just tools. I think they are necessary tools and I’m following the direction the Lord has given me, but I’m happy and blessed without them. Regardless of how long it takes or if I never see the building of this campus come to pass, I will still be blessed and in love with the Lord. I will not put this ministry in a bind for buildings.

Therefore, I am asking those whom God has joined to Jamie and my heart to help me decide how to approach this. I haven’t got the money to pay for this out of my pocket, and I’m not taking out a loan. I need to ask what you are willing to do. You are God’s bank.

To build the smaller structure would take 6,100 new Foundation Builder Partners averaging $60 per month for twenty-eight months. This half of the campus includes a 1,500-seat auditorium upstairs, a 500-seat auditorium, and twenty-three classrooms downstairs.

If I also build the 2,500-seat auditorium with all the offices and Phone Center at the same time, I would have to have 16,668 new Foundation Builder Partners for thirty-six months to complete the whole project.

I know these numbers may seem overwhelming, but if you look at this from the viewpoint of how many people we are reaching, this is an attainable goal. There are 86,000 people receiving this letter. A $14.63 gift per month from everyone for thirty-six months would pay for this whole project, debt free. When you factor in that millions of people watch my program daily, this becomes nothing. All things are possible with God (Mark 9:23).

I ask you to simply pray about this and do whatever the Lord leads you to do. I would remind you that I am in the process of making a decision on how to approach this project. It’s important to me that you let me know in the next month or two what the Lord is leading you to do. I must decide whether to build just one building or both of these buildings simultaneously. I will have to give direction to my builder by January 1.

On July 28, I broadcast, via the internet, a special video message talking about our progress on the development of The Sanctuary project thus far and the steps we will be taking in the near future. Please take the time to go to our website to listen to this message, and then watch the virtual tour. I know it will bless and encourage you.

Decisions do determine destiny, but those decisions must be based on the truth of the Word. It was the Word of God that changed my life, and it will change your life as well. To help you, I have spent years developing a study of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). It became the first edition of what we call the Life for Today Study Bible and Commentary.

In this Life for Today Study Bible: The Gospels Edition, I have arranged the four Gospels in parallel and chronological order. It makes it very easy to compare what each of the Gospels say about specific events in the life of Jesus. In addition, I also recorded an audio verse-by-verse teaching to accompany it. Previously this was only available through partnership, but it is now available as a standalone resource.

It includes the Life for Today Study Bible and Commentary: The Gospels Edition and over fifty-five hours of verse-by-verse teaching and commentary loaded onto one simple USB card as MP3 audio. In the old CD format, it required over seventy CDs. This study Bible and audio teaching together is valued at $600, but I am offering it for a gift of $155 or more.

I also encourage you to order our Destiny Stories DVD for a gift of $15 or more even if you do not become a Foundation Builder. Each story will encourage you to make the decision that will move you toward your own destiny.

The Lord has awesome things planned for your life. Regardless of what things look like now, your positive decisions can change everything.

a healed testimony: Debbie Fortnum

healed-debbie-fortnum“Debbie’s music speaks to matters of the heart. Her candor is refreshing. She creates an atmosphere where people want to surrender themselves and hear from Christ. And they do!”
“Debbie is a Wife, a Mother-of-Three, Women’s Speaker, Award-Winning Recording Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Worship Pastor, and Pianist. She weaves her spoken messages, testimony, stories and worshipful, encouraging music into a well-received gift of real – and Biblical — refreshment to audiences of all ages and stages.”

“After a miraculous healing, Debbie began her public ministry as a young 13-year-old, where she became the full time pianist at her father’s C&MA Church in Oregon, USA.” (Above quoted from various online sources)

Here is a testimony about her musical gift:

(quoted from her blog)
“When I was just 5 years old, I began to play the piano without ever being taught. It was pretty sudden … and surprising. I couldn’t understand why I suddenly understood how all of those 88 piano keys “worked together” so beautifully, but it was as clear to me as the blazing sun! But the timing of it was wonderfully suspicious. Just two weeks after I said “YES!” to Jesus, I realized that I could play the piano, by ear. It became obvious to me and my parents that something got downloaded into my five-year-old self that represented a gift, and a calling. But the music my fingers produced never came from black notes on a page. Music came out of my heart. In fact, there were times when I thought only half the gift got downloaded, and the other half was still floating around in spiritual cyber-space. I still can barely read a note, and greatly struggle with memory, learning disabilities and other issues! God certainly has a sense of humour, because during the past 9 albums — four of them instrumental piano CDs — that were recorded, not a single sheet of music containing any of those confusing little black notes were even to be seen in the recording studio!”

Concerning her miraculous healing, she said, “The call of the Lord upon my life began when I was nine years old. I felt a specific call to ministry. At that time, I had been struck with a debilitating disease that ransacked me for three years. They still have not been able to diagnose the disease. They think it was a strain of polio,” the singer recalls.
Fortnum continues, “I couldn’t do much except sit down at the piano and play. I just began to develop this incredible love relationship with the Lord. I would play, read and sing scripture. The songs began to pour out of me and it was within the context of pain. I started when I was nine and then when I was twelve God miraculously healed me. I believe the Lord used that experience to reroute me. He wanted me in music and ministry.” (Quoted from an article published at http://www.growthtrac.com/debbie-fortnum/ On “several hundred women gathered at Sagemont Church in Houston Texas to listen to Debbie Fortnum the keynote speaker for Ladies Night Out a quarterly women’s conference.”)

Here is a song from her based on Bible verses:
DEBBIE FORTNUM — “I Know The Plans” Jer. 29:11
Words and Music by Debbie Fortnum

I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord

I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord

I have great plans to prosper you,
declares the Lord

I have great plans to prosper you,
declares the Lord
To give you a hope, to give you a future,
says the Lord

To give you a hope, to give you a future,
says the Lord

And not to harm you

No I will never harm you

I want to show you all of My miracles

And I want to know you and
I want you to know Me

I want to show you
in the years ahead together

The beauty of My plans,
you’re in very capable hands

I know the plans I have for you

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

healed of 4th stage cancer: by the Words of God

2016-12-20-08-43-36The Mullins Family Story. When the Mullins’ 17-month-old son was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, their lives were turned upside down. See how God’s word transformed the Mullins’ lives. (Excerpts quoted from the original website)

Andrew Mullins
– Amazed By Grace –
Mike and Aster Mullins live with their family in Buncrana, Co. Donegal, Ireland, the home of the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. In September of 2009, they welcomed their fourth son into the world. Their new baby, Andrew, was the Mullins’ fifth child, and from the beginning, Aster considered him her victory baby.

In December 2010, Mike and Aster noticed something was bothering Andrew…

On February 25, 2011 the Mullins were told that Andrew had a very aggressive form of cancer called, High Risk Neuroblastoma. He was already at stage four and had a tumor measuring 7cm x 8cm x 21cm. Andrew was just 17 months old.

The Mullins, stunned by the news, found their lives turned upside down…Bone marrow tests and further, more invasive, scanning of Andrew’s body revealed that he had over 90% cancer in his bone marrow, and that the disease was in every bone of his body apart from his hands and his feet.

As they turned to the God they knew for help, they began to pray and plead for healing. In an effort to mobilize as many people as possible to pray for his son, Mike immediately set up a Facebook page for Andrew. The page brought nearly 5000 people together to “storm heavens gates” on Andrew’s behalf. Their battle raged…

Among the mail the family received after Grace’s birth, was a parcel which included Andrew Wommack’s teaching series, God Wants You Well. “The title, funny enough, really didn’t do it for me at all. At the time I was so raw, I thought, yeah right, what do I have to do for that?” recalled Aster. She and Mike put the teaching on a shelf—literally—for months.

…but after nearly six months of rigorous cancer treatment, and thousands of prayers and prayer meetings, Andrew’s progress was slower than expected, …they thought. “Do I have to beg God to have mercy on my child? Do I, as a human being, have more compassion than God does,” Mike wondered. Their prayer life changed at that point, from prayers begging God to help, to prayers asking God to teach them to pray.

Both Aster and Mike were exhausted…Mike, as tired and frustrated as he was, didn’t want to be in survival mode, he wanted to be in more-than-a-conqueror-mode. He also wanted to know what the Bible had to say about healing. It was at this low point, …that they finally listened to the first disk of the God Wants You Well series. Something in the message resonated deep within their hearts. “Wow, water to my parched, parched, dried out soul,” Aster declared.

“Although we had never heard this before, it was as if we had,” said Mike with regard to Andrew’s teaching. As the two listened and re-listened to the series they became convinced that it is always God’s will to heal and that He did want their son well. “We don’t have to storm Heaven’s gates, God is not the oppressor, nor was He using Andrew’s sickness to teach us a lesson,” realized Mike. They continued downloading and listening to Andrew’s teaching, and they were transformed by rightly discerning the Word of God.

God used Andrew’s teaching to point the Mullins back to His Word where they found promises to stand on for their son’s healing. “We found promises in the Word of God, such as in the book of Proverbs (15:30) where it says good news brings health to your bones.” said Mike.

After their eyes were opened to the Truth, they went to their son, and laid their hands on him with confident expectation. “We put our hands on his thigh bones and his pelvis and we said, ‘Bones, we’ve got good news for you, By His stripes you were healed (1 Peter 2:24). And in faith, with a total conviction in my heart, we spoke that Bible verse standing on the Word of God,” said Aster.

After their prayer, Andrew was tested to see if he had made any progress. To the hospital staff’s surprise, he had. The Mullins’ consultant called and she said, “I don’t know how to tell you this, but everything regarding Andrew is up in the air.” To which Mike inquired, “Is it up in the air good or up in the air bad? She said, “It’s up in the air good. Every one of Andrew’s bones are completely clean of cancer… We really didn’t expect this.”

While the news was unexpected by the doctors, it wasn’t a surprise to the Mullins. “We had learned how to pray with authority, and it worked,” said Mike.

Andrew still had active cancer near his spine, and due to its location, it was inoperable. As Andrew went in for continued treatment, Aster asked the Lord for something more. After the victory in Andrew’s bones, she felt they were finished using scriptures about bones—she asked the Lord for another weapon.

Faithful as always, the Lord showed Aster the story of Ehud (Judges 3:12-25). Through this passage, Aster saw her weapon revealed; …After treatment, when Andrew was tested again for cancer, and for any damage caused by the treatment, his results came back perfect; there was no sign of cancer or damage to any of his organs. His eyesight, hearing, heart, lungs and both kidneys were perfect.

The Mullins chose to believe what they had learned from Andrew Wommack, the truth about God—that it is always His will to heal—always…

positively healed!

God’s Best is always the Best. Can we become His best? Someone brought back this little book from USA. When I searched online I found a pdf excerpted book. The principles are simple and clear. I recommend for everyone who likes to know more about what it means to be God’s Best for yourself and your loved ones.

Here are some pages from the excerpts:
INTRODUCTION
God’s Plan For You Is All Good
My father has written this book to help you discover that YOU ARE GOD’S BEST. There is a sense of destiny in your life because you are God’s idea, His dream.
This book will help you discover your roots in God, the value He places on you, the limitless potential within you, the vital principles of peace, prosperity, success and fulfillment.
This book is based on the Good News of the Bible. God’s plan for you is all GOOD. He is not mad at you. He loves you like you are and has already paid for every wrong you ever committed.
Knowing that God invested so much to create humanity, then paid such a price to redeem each human being, we realize how much He values each person.
Through this book, my father will help you to make the greatest discovery you can ever make—your identity with God. — LaDonna C. Osborn

YOU ARE GOD’S BEST
What You Talk Is What You Produce Whether your words are positive or negative, they are seeds. They will produce. Whatever you sow you will personally reap. It is impossible to negate that law.
The New Confession
I am created in God’s likeness. I am somebody important in God’s eyes. He believes in me. He loves me and needs me. I am part of His plan.
God loves me as much as He loves anyone else. It is God who caused me to write this book for you, so you can discover that YOU ARE GOD’S BEST.
Start Your Miracle
THE BASIC PRINCIPLE to be discovered in this book is so powerful that it will actually start the miracle you need in life. God’s power will begin working in you as you go through the pages. You will discover this great principle if you are alert to it in your heart.
You can grasp any principle you are ready for. The seeds that will be planted in you through this book will produce God’s best in your life. They will work like a miracle.
Destiny Is Now at Work in You
Why were you chosen for this information which has lifted tens of thousands of people around the world? It is God’s way of saying: “I love you. I created my best when I created you. I paid a price for you and you are worth all I ever paid for you. I have destined my best for you.”
God is first class all the way. He created you unique. You are exceptional, one of a kind.
Discovering Dignity
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. Jn.3:16
All that is required of us to receive total justification before God, is that we simply believe with all of our hearts that Jesus Christ died in our place, and respond to such love by willingly confessing to others what we believe. Rom.10:9-10
Once we comprehend this and respond, an incredible miracle takes place: God took the sinless Christ and poured into him our sins. Then, in exchange, he poured God’s goodness into us. 2Cor.5:21LB
Jesus Christ became the way back to God for you and for me. Through His sacrifice, He removed forever the condemnation of our sins and dissolved the barrier between us and God, so that we are now welcome to return to His presence where we can once again share His lifestyle. He.10:18-22 We have been restored to the dignity and righteousness of God for which He originally created us. We have been justified—as though we had never turned away from Him and had never sinned. When this miracle has come to pass, we are new creatures in Christ Jesus, and we must never again condemn, discredit or slander what God has paid so much to redeem and to justify.
Who You Are in Christ
Six facts of the new Christ life:
1.God is what He says He is.
2.I am what He says I am.
3.God has what He says He has.
4.I have what He says I have.
5.God will do what He says He will do.
6.I can do what He says I can do.
Start Your Own Miracle Now
Say: “I accept the value that God has put on me.”
Valued in God’s Plan
Jesus welcomes you and loves you, like you are. Let God become, in and through you, all that He is. Learn to say: It was love’s idea to not let me die in my sins. Jesus proved how much God values me. He paid for me by giving His life in my place. I am worth what God paid for me. I shall never again condemn what God has paid so much to redeem. I shall never put down what cost God so much to raise up. God planned that whatever could be said about Him, could be said about you.
God’s Value System
God wants you to discover the essential fact that every human person is created by Him, for His lifestyle, to fulfill His purpose on this earth— and every person includes you.
To discover that principle puts your own life into perspective. It gives dignity, purpose and value to living. The greatest possible achievement in life is to be the terrific person God created you to be.
Here are seven statements about you which I hope you will engrave in your mind, by rehearing them until they become a part of you:
1. I am created in God’s likeness.
2. I am unique-one of a kind.
3. I am of infinite value-to God and to others.
4. I am loved, in spite of my faults.
5. I am redeemed and accepted by the Lord.
6. I am empowered for His divine service to others.
7. I am commissioned as an ambassador in his royal kingdom.
you are God's best contents

Editorial Reviews from Amazon (excerpts)
The ministries of T. L. and Daisy Osborn have made an unprecedented impact on the world in our time. They are valued among the great soul winners of this century. Their life commitment: To express and to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ to people throughout the world.
Their guiding principle: the top priority of the church is the evangelization of the world. The Osborns have conducted mass crusades in over 70 nations, preaching to audiences ranging from 20,000 to 250,000 nightly and more.
The Osborns have probably reached and led more unreached souls to Jesus Christ in non-Christian lands, and may have witnessed more great healing miracles, than any other couple who has ever yet lived. Their team efforts in world evangelism are truly pace-setting as they proclaim the good news to the world: that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8).

a healed and well body

blossom like a roseA human is a three-in-one: body, soul (mind and emotion) and spirit. Today we read and ponder about how our body can be well and healthy.

1 Corinthians 6:15 Don’t you realize that your bodies are actually parts of Christ? Should a man take his body, which is part of Christ, and join it to a prostitute? Never!

1 Corinthians 6:16 And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say, “The two are united into one.”

1 Corinthians 6:18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,

1 Corinthians 6:20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

1 Corinthians 7:4 The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:34 His interests are divided. In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.

1 Corinthians 9:27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.

1 Corinthians 10:16 When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ?

1 Corinthians 10:17 And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body.

1 Corinthians 11:24 and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

1 Corinthians 11:27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:29 For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself.

1 Corinthians 12:12 [ One Body with Many Parts ] The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:13 Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:14 Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part.

1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body.

1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body?

1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything?

1 Corinthians 12:19 How strange a body would be if it had only one part!

1 Corinthians 12:20 Yes, there are many parts, but only one body.

1 Corinthians 12:22 In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.

1 Corinthians 12:24 while the more honorable parts do not require this special care. So God has put the body together such that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity.

1 Corinthians 12:27 All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.

1 Corinthians 13:3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

1 Corinthians 15:35 [ The Resurrection Body ] But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?”

1 Corinthians 15:38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed.

1 Corinthians 15:46 What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later.

Isaiah 35New Living Translation (NLT)

Hope for Restoration
Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days.
The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
2 Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers
and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon,
as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his glory,
the splendor of our God.
3 With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands,
and encourage those who have weak knees.
4 Say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, and do not fear,
for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.
He is coming to save you.”
5 And when he comes, he will open the eyes of the blind
and unplug the ears of the deaf.
6 The lame will leap like a deer,
and those who cannot speak will sing for joy!
Springs will gush forth in the wilderness,
and streams will water the wasteland.
7 The parched ground will become a pool,
and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land.
Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish
where desert jackals once lived.
8 And a great road will go through that once deserted land.
It will be named the Highway of Holiness.
Evil-minded people will never travel on it.
It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways;
fools will never walk there.
9 Lions will not lurk along its course,
nor any other ferocious beasts.
There will be no other dangers.
Only the redeemed will walk on it.
10 Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return.
They will enter Jerusalem[a] singing,
crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear,
and they will be filled with joy and gladness.

Prayer benefits: longer life, less illness, faster recovery!

praying_hands_bibleA belief in God may make people healthier and happier, according to new studies. “Studies have shown prayer can prevent people from getting sick — and when they do get sick, prayer can help them get better faster,” This is the scientific finding of Harold G. Koenig who is a psychiatrist on the faculty of Duke University. His ideas have been covered in Newsweek and other news media with regard to religion, spirituality and health, a focus of some of his research and clinical practice. Dr. Koenig says a striking study published in the Southern Medical Journal demonstrated that prayer has a remarkable effect on patients with hearing and visual deficiencies.

Koenig has published over 280 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, scholarly professional journal articles and 60 chapters in professional books.In a cooperation with Raphael M. Bonelli from Sigmund Freud University Vienna he undertook the first systematic evidence based analysis on the connection between mental disorders and religion. The researchers conclude that there is good evidence that religious involvement is correlated with better mental health in the areas of depression, substance abuse, and suicide; some evidence in Stress-related disorders and dementia. Dr. Koenig has given testimony before the U.S. Senate (1998) and U.S. House of Representatives (2008) concerning the benefits of religion and spirituality on public health, and travels widely to give seminars and workshops on this topic.

An exhaustive analysis of more than 1,500 reputable medical studies “indicates people who are more religious and pray more have better mental and physical health,” Dr. Koenig says. “And out of 125 studies that looked at the link between health and regular worship, 85 showed regular churchgoers live longer. After prayer sessions, “They showed significant improvements based on audio and visual tests,” Dr. Koenig said.

His studies have shown positive correlation in people practicing community faith and religious commitment, and better coping in lives: better stress management, more hope, more optimistic, less depression, less anxiety, and they commit suicide less often. “They have stronger immune systems, lower blood pressure, and probably better cardiovascular functioning.”

The analysis of more than 1,500 medical studies showed that “people who are more religious and pray more have better mental and physical health,” Koenig said. The results come from a study published in the Southern Medical Journal.

“And out of 125 studies that looked at the link between health and regular worship, 85 showed regular churchgoers live longer,” said Koenig, director of Duke’s Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health.”

Researcher and writer Tom Knox agreed with the findings. Knox was an atheist who became a Christian after studying faith and medicine.

The proof of the power of prayer is overwhelming, says researcher and writer Tom Knox, a one-time atheist who became a regular worshiper after doing in-depth study of the medical benefits of faith. “What I discovered astonished me,” admits Knox. “Over the past 30 years a growing and largely unnoticed body of scientific work shows religious belief is medically, socially, and psychologically beneficial.”

In 2006, population researchers at the University of Texas discovered that the more often you go to church, the longer you live. “There is a seven-year difference in life expectancy between those who never attend church and those who attend weekly.”

The American Journal of Public Health studied nearly 2,000 older Californians for five years and found that those who attended religious services were 36 percent less likely to die during that period than those who didn’t.

A study of nearly 4,000 older adults for the U.S. Journal of Gerontology revealed that atheists had a significantly increased chance of dying over a six-year period than the faithful.

The American Society of Hypertension established in 2006 that church-goers have lower blood pressure than non-believers.

Scientists have also revealed believers recover from breast cancer quicker than non-believers, have better outcomes from coronary disease and rheumatoid arthritis, and are less likely to have children with meningitis.

Research at San Francisco General Hospital looked at the effect of prayer on 393 cardiac patients. Half were prayed for by strangers who had only the patients’ names. Those patients had fewer complications, fewer cases of pneumonia, and needed less drug treatment, recovered faster and left the hospital earlier.

Concluded Knox: “Atheists can sneer at faith all they like, but they can’t assume science is on their side.”

PROTECT YOUR HEALING
To maintain healing or facilitate further healing, you must:
 Read, hear, meditate, and practice the Word as well as apply the blood on a daily Basis to spirit, soul, and body even after the healing manifests, in order to guard the healing and as a preventive measure.
 Surround yourself with positive, faith-speaking people, keep a radio tuned to a Christian station playing day and night, and listen to faithbuilding tapes. In other words, keep the Word of God always surrounding you.
 Attend church regularly to keep the Word alive and active in your spirit and to enjoy the fellowship of like-minded believers.
 Continue to constantly praise God for your healing.
 Continue not only to apply the blood but also to speak healing aloud to yourself because you believe what you say more than you believe what others tell you. Remind yourself that God wants you well, that you are healed by the stripes of Jesus, that Jesus sends His Word to heal: “…My word…that goes forth out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void -without producing any effect, useless – but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11 AMP).
 Do not rely on feelings or focus on symptoms, but on God’s Word. Say aloud what God says about the situation as set forth in the healing Scriptures.
 Do not give up. Never give up. Remember that God wants you well. Stand in faith until the healing manifests.
 If you need someone to stand with you, find someone who has been healed, someone who has strong faith and ask that person to link his faith with yours. It is always a comfort and a help to have a strong believer standing by.
COMMON HINDRANCES TO HEALING
 Lack of Knowledge
The Bible says that people “perish for lack of knowledge.” We must know what God says in His Word about healing. God says He is the Lord our God who heals us, that He “sent His Word and healed us.’”
 Unbelief
Unbelief is a sin. The Bible tells us that God is “not a man that He should lie.” You must believe the Word of God. Unbelief is the only sin that will keep you out of Heaven.
 Unforgiveness
You must be willing to let go of bitterness, anger and unforgiveness. Forgiveness is a decision, not an emotion. Confess forgiveness and the feeling will eventually come.
 Laziness
You have to put forth an effort to obtain the promises and provisions of God. Be willing to spend time in the Word and in prayer. Confess – speak – the Word over your body and your life.
 Pride
The Bible tells us that “the fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride, and arrogance, and the evil way.” A prideful, haughty attitude will block the healing power of God.
 Unconfessed Sin
Be willing to search your heart and confess your sins and be cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb.
 Involvement in the Occult
This is an abomination to God. You must renounce all ties with the occult (horoscopes, psychics, ouija boards, crystals, etc.)
 Negative Confessions
You get what you say. Begin to say the same things about yourself that God’s Word says about you. Rather than talking all the negative things (the problem, the diagnosis, the symptoms, how you feel) begin to say, “by the stripes of Jesus I am healed.” – I believe I receive my healing!
 Waiting on physical evidence before you believe you are healed
Remember that often things will appear to get worse as soon as you make a decision to believe God. The devil wants to discourage you and keep you from believing that God has already healed you. You must believe that you have received your healing and keep speaking it until it becomes real to you. Healing begins on the inside, in your spirit, and works its way to the outside – your body.

A New Direction (from Andrew Wommack) 

Construction Continues at the Sanctuary

As I’m sure you’re aware, we had to pause our construction at The Sanctuary at the end of December 2015 because of finances. I actually took out a line of credit on December 22 to meet our obligations with television and salaries, but the great news is that we paid that back in less than forty-five days. Thank You, Jesus! We are back on track to do everything debt free.

My original plan was to wait until we built up a $4 million buffer before restarting construction. This was to absorb any fluctuations in income or expenses so we wouldn’t run into this problem again. But something happened that has presented me with a new opportunity.

We are so cramped for space at The Barn that we are facing forced limitations on how many people can come to our conferences. We are dealing with this by possibly having students and staff go down to our facilities in Colorado Springs and watch the meetings via live stream. This only affects our major meetings, such as Summer Family Bible Conference, the Ministers’ Conference, Healing Is Here, and Charis Business Summit.

But the more pressing issue is office space and our Phone Center. As I told you months ago, I gave up my office space at The Sanctuary, and we’ve moved as many people as possible down to our offices in Colorado Springs, which already house over 250 employees. I went to talk to one of our IT people at The Barn, and they are actually occupying a storage space on the roof for their offices.

Our Phone Center is 90 percent staffed by Charis Bible College students. This makes for wonderful prayer ministers who do a great job, but it hinders us during Charis class hours. Right now, one of our largest volumes of calls comes from Daystar viewers, beginning at 6:50 a.m. and continuing for the next hour. Our Charis students have to leave around 7:00 a.m. to make it up to Woodland Park by the start of classes at 8:00 a.m.

This drop in people available to answer calls has dramatically limited our ability to respond during this time. We are losing hundreds of calls per day. Some of them may call back later, but we don’t know that for sure.

To solve these problems, my staff proposed looking at places in Woodland Park to rent for additional space. If we had our call center nearby in Woodland Park, the students would be able to take the vast majority of these dropped calls. As we began this process, the man who heads up our construction came to me with the idea of finishing off the part of Phase II that will house our new Phone Center and additional office space. I didn’t know this was an option, but it appears that this will work.

So, we’ve come up with a new plan to finish off the second floor of Phase II on the north and east side of the building. This will allow us to have 150 people answering the phones at one time and will give us around 100 new work spaces.

The changes to accommodate this partial build-out are very minor, and the benefit is enormous. This could be completed by August 2016, and that would be just perfect to accommodate the 1,000 students expected for the new school year beginning in September.

I feel so good about this that I instructed my staff today to go ahead and pursue this plan. Of course, we need the whole building finished as quickly as possible-and I am continuing to believe for that-but this is a bite-sized piece that will provide us with some quick relief.

Over the last eighteen months, we have received an average of $791,000 per month designated for our building projects. It would require just over $1 million per month to complete this partial build-out, or an increase of about $300,000 per month over what we are receiving now. This is one-tenth of the cost of having construction on the whole building going at full throttle. I believe this is very doable and would stop the need for us having to rent additional facilities in Woodland Park.

I’m sending this letter out to the 100,000 people who receive our monthly mailings, and it will also go out to 185,000 people on our email list. We will record some television spots announcing this, reaching millions more. Altogether, this is a piece of cake for Jesus.

I’m asking you to pray about this and participate if the Lord directs you to. As I’ve said many times before, it’s not about the buildings. These buildings are just tools that enable us to minister the true Gospel to people. But they are essential for accomplishing that goal.

Jamie and I and all the people being impacted by this ministry appreciate all you have done and will be doing to get this done. I am more convinced than ever that the Lord is doing something special at Charis. Not long ago, I was able to sit in on chapel at Charis when the students received a taste of our latest musical, God with Us. The writers of all the original music for this were telling us about how people want them on Broadway and in Hollywood and can’t understand why they are living in a small town in the mountains of Colorado. But they shared how the Lord brought them here. This is just one more example of what God is putting together.

No man has done this. No man could do this. Even if I were smart enough to figure this out, there is no way I could compete with all that the secular world has to offer these people. We have millionaires and business tycoons who have fallen in love with Charis and are pouring their lives into these students. David Barton and political figures are investing time and effort into raising up people to take our nation back.

Our media department is training people to communicate the Gospel using all the tools available to us today. Our missions program and ministry track are touching lives all over the world. Our evangelism courses are making a profound impact on our students, who, in turn, are touching the people in their worlds.

Altogether, Charis is doing things I’ve never been able to do. It’s like a tank being brought into battle. Satan’s kingdom is being hurt by what the Lord is doing here. Thanks for being a part of it. We couldn’t do it without you.

Thanks in advance,

Andrew and Jamie

Have you ever asked these questions:
Does God always heal?
Does God use sickness to teach?
Is God waiting on a change in behavior before He heals?
If healing is for all, why aren’t all Christians healed when they pray?
Isn’t healing really just a natural result of positive thinking?
If you have, you’re not alone. But for most, the questions still linger. The correct answers to these and other questions will change the way you see God and your relationship with Him. They will lay the foundation for healing in your life or that of someone you love.

Come, bring family and friends. Learn the truth, then witness and experience the healing power of God. (http://www.charisbiblecollege.org/watch-charis-live)

“How To Live and Not Die.” (a testimony)

Dale and Pearl RaatzThe healed testimony of this couple is very powerful and touching. The wife had a ‘ruptured aneurysm’ and was pronounced hopeless by the doctors. But the husband did not give up. He persisted in believing in God’s words and kept proclaiming those words. She lived and did not die. She was miraculously supernaturally healed and health (functioning) fully restored. 

Pearl Raatz was miraculously healed after her husband, Dale, continually interceded for her. – Listen to the radio interview at: http://sidroth.org/radio/radio-archives/dale-and-pearl-raatz#sthash.X5Rd1PdJ.dpuf 

“Honey, I think I’m going to faint!’

Feeling a sudden, alarming sensation in her head, Pearl Raatz stumbled over to a church pew and sat down. It was February 15, 1997. Pearl and her husband Dale, pastors of a church in Wausaukee, Wisconsin, had just arrived at a church in Iron Mountain, Michigan, ready to enjoy a music concert with some fellow pastors. But when Pearl blurted out those words, their plans changed abruptly.

Dale ran over to his wife, laid hands on her and began to pray. Pearl continued to moan, “Oh, my head, my head!” Then she screamed, “My head just blew off!” and went into convulsions. After the convulsions subsided a few minutes later, Pearl lay in a coma, motionless.

Dales natural mind was in a state of shock as he tried to grasp this sudden life-and-death crisis. But Dale had stored too much Word in his heart over the years to react out of his limited natural reasoning to this unexpected emergency.

Dale and Pearl had known each other all their lives before they were married in 1962. Raised in the same Pentecostal church, both were saved and Spirit-filled as children. They answered the call to the ministry together and assumed the pastorate of their fist church in 1971.

Then in the mid-’70s the Raatzes read three of Brother Hagins books: What Faith Is, The Real Faith, and The Authority of the Believer. The simple truths in those books literally transformed the couples lives, teaching them how to stand in faith on their covenant with God and receive their rightful inheritance in Christ. In Pearl’s words, “Brother Hagin’s teaching brought us out of religion and into a true reality in the Lord.” Over the years they witnessed miracle after miracle, not only in their lives, but also in the lives of those they had ministered to. And now, as Pearl lay in a coma, they needed another one.

As Dale gazed at his wife lying unconscious on the church pew, a righteous indignation rose up in his spirit, and he declared with boldness: “I apply the blood of Jesus all over you, Pearl. You shall live and not die, and declare the works of the Lord [Ps. 118:17]! Death angel, you must leave in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth!”

When Dale spoke God’s Word over Pearl, nothing changed outwardly in her condition. But an irreversible stance of faith was established in Dales heart at that moment regarding his wife’s healing: His wife would live and not die. Dale’s stance would be sorely tested in the days to come, but he would never waver.

Pearl remained in a deep coma as the medical crew rushed her to the hospital. As the doctors examined her, Dale and the pastor who had accompanied the Raatzes to the hospital went into the adjoining waiting room. Then the two men began to worship the Lord while declaring the promises of God’s Word concerning Pearl’s healing.

“As we prayed and worshiped the Lord,” Dale related, “I was so grateful for the teaching I had received from Brother Hagin regarding faith and the believer’s authority. Scripture after scripture just rolled out of my mouth as I spoke to this ‘mountain’ of physical destruction according to Mark 11:23 and by faith commanded it to be removed from my wife’s body.

After examining Pearl, the doctor in charge solemnly explained her diagnosis to Dale. An aneurysm (a sac form by the stretching of an artery wall) had ruptured in the center of Pearl’s brain, causing severe cerebral hemorrhaging. The blood had seeped into both sides of her brain, triggering a massive stroke that left Pearl’s right side totally paralyzed.

 

The doctor gave Dale almost no hope that Pearl would survive. If against all odds she did live, the doctor said, the amount of damage done to her brain would leave her completely incapacitated.

At Dale’s request, Pearl was transferred to a more advanced medical facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Green Bay doctor gave Dale the same prognosis of Pearl’s condition: “There is no hope, Sir. No hope.” But Dale instantly overrode the negative report in his mind with the promise of a God that had been quickened in his heart: “She will live and not die!”

The normal medical procedure after a ruptured aneurysm is to surgically repaired the damaged artery and drain the blood that had escaped. In Pearl’s case, however, the doctors believed surgery would be futile because the aneurysm and was so deeply embedded hence so much blood had already spilled into her brain so they waited helplessly for Pearl to die.

But twenty-one hours later, Pearl had defied all natural expectations – she was still alive! Surgery was finally performed, but once again the doctors’ natural report produced no hope. “We can try to drain as much blood as possible off your wife’s brain,” they told him. “But even if she physically survives the surgery, so much blood has been on her brain for so long, your wife will never have her right mind again. Even if she ever comes out of the coma, she’ll never remember anything. She’ll never walk again. She will be nothing more than a vegetable.”

No! Dale thought. That’s not the way it has to be! The Bible says everything that has a name has to bow to the Name of Jesus [Phil. 2:9,10] It also says that I am able to call those things that be not as though they were [Rom. 4:17]. Pearl’s brain is a name – and by faith I can call its normal!

Pearl did survive the surgery, just as Dale expected, but she remained in a deep coma. So Dale went into the ICU room where Pearl lay and began to speak to the “mountain” – Pearls injured brain. “Brain, ” he declared, “according to the Word of God, you are a name, and you must bow to the name of Jesus. By faith I call you completely restored and whole according to Romans 4: 17!”

“I stayed with Pearl day and night,” Dale related, “declaring her brain to be restored and made whole. For days I saw no evidence of any change in Pearl’s condition – but neither did I change my confession of faith! The Lord instructed me in my spirit during this time, saying, “Don’t look at what you can see with your eyes. Just the persistent in believing My Word. Hold fast to your confidence that My Promise to you will come to pass.”

On the tenth day following Pearl’s ruptured aneurysm, the doctor came to Dale with nightmarish news. “Sir,” he said grimly, “it looks like we’re going to lose your wife today. Her body is closing down.”

Immediately Dale heard the Lord say in his spirit, “Hold fast your confidence. Don’t accept that report.” So as the doctor walked out of the room, Dale prayed, “Lord, I need someone with my kind of faith to rejoice with me today. I believe You’re going to send someone who can stand with me for Pearl’s life and complete restoration.”

That evening, the phone-in Pearl is hospital room rang. It was the pastor of a Church in Green Bay whom Dale had never heard of before. “I’ve heard about your wife’s condition,” the pastor said. “May I come and meet you?”

Dale knew by an inner witness that he had found the man he was believing for. So he told the pastor, “Yes, Sir! Come right on over!” When the Pastor arrived, Dale asked him some questions to locate him spiritually. And the pastor began to declare the same faith principles Dale had learned years earlier from Brother Hagins books! Dale exclaimed, “Brother, you’re the man I want today.”

Dale and the pastor all went into Pearl’s room and asked the nurse to let them have some time alone with her. For forty-five minutes straight, the two men just sang songs of praise and worship to the Lord together, thanking him that Pearl would live and not die. Then they simultaneously stop singing, and Dale looked at the pastor, smiled, and said, “Brother, the battle is over. I know the battle is over.” The two men walked out of Pearl’s room rejoicing, and the pastor left to go home.

A short time later, Dale’s son and daughter went into the room to visit their mother. Within a few seconds they came out running, shouting, “Dad! Dad! Mom’s awake!”

When he heard their report, Dale exclaimed, “Praise God, I expected that!” and hurried to see his wife, who, though awakened from the coma, was still unaware of her surroundings. Then he called the pastor, who had just arrived home. “Brother,” Dale told him, “Pearl just woke up!”

In recalling the excitement of the moment, Dale said, “That was the best news that good man had ever heard! That day we both saw God’s Word verified before our very eyes!”

An important battle had been won in this life-and-death fight of faith. But the loss of Pearl’s mental faculties through “permanent” brain damage still had to be miraculously restored. Her right side also remained completely paralyzed as a result of the stroke; and her paralyzed throat made it impossible for her to swallow.

Dale continued to apply the truths he had learned from reading Brother Hagins books as he spoke God’s Word to be Pearl’s brain, proclaiming it whole and completely restored. But now he also began to focus his faith on her paralyzed right side, constantly speaking life over his wife’s body. “Stroke, you’re a name,” he would say. “Paralyzed body, you’re a name. And every name must bow to the name of Jesus! The anointed, creative Word of God undoes this damage and quickens life into these dead muscles and limbs!”

A week passed – then another, and Dale saw little change in Pearls condition. She wasn’t responding mentally to outside stimuli and her right side remained lifeless and immobile. But Dale never once changed his confession of faith. He faithfully remained by her bedside day in and day out, filling his hours with praise and worship and the confession of God’s promises over his wife.

Those were difficult days for Dale, even though he believed in his heart that God’s word would be ultimately prevail. Three different times he was awakened from a deep sleep by the devil’s insistent, tormenting thoughts: Let Pearl die. She will just be a burden to you. Let her die in peace! And three different times Dale resisted those thoughts in the name of Jesus until he was able to peacefully sleep through the night.

Dale finally saw concrete evidence of answered prayers during Pearl’s fourth week in hospital when her mental faculties miraculously started to return to normal. Then one day during that week, Dale saw the right side of his wife’s throat suddenly begin to move as he sat by her bed worshipping the Lord.

Immediately Dale called in the nurse and told there, “I believe Pearl can swallow now.”

“Oh, no, she’s paralyzed!” The nurse protested.

“I know that’s been her condition,” Dale responded, “but the Name of Jesus is greater than paralysis! Please tell the doctor that I want us to try to give her a bite to eat.”

While the nurse located the doctor, Dale to talk to Pearl. “Honey, in the name of Jesus you going to swallow, aren’t you?” he asked. Pearl nodded her head yes.

When the nurse returned with the doctor and several medical staff members, they transported Pearl to another room. Then they tied Pearl to a table, using its support to stand her up right to reduce any risk of choking on the food.

The nurse tried one more time to talk some “sense” into Dale. “You know,” she said, “there is absolutely no moisture in your wife’s mouth. She hasn’t had a drop of water in her throat for four weeks! There isn’t any saliva in her mouth to help her swallow. She could choke and die!”

“I understand what you’re saying,” Dale calmly answered, “but Pearl agreed with me that she would swallow in Jesus’ Name – and she will by the power in God’s Word! I believe that the moment food is put into her mouth, her saliva glands will begin to function normally.” A special camera was set up to monitor what a place in Pearls mouth when she was given a bite of food. Dale and the medical staff watched the display carefully. As if on cue, Pearl’s saliva glands activated as she chewed the morsel of food. Then her formerly paralyzed throat swallowed the food with no problem!

The staff members just turned and stared at Dale, who happily explained, “Praise You, Jesus!”

That day marked the beginning of the end of the Raatzes’ ordeal. And every day after that, Pearl took another miraculous step toward her complete healing. Most rapid of all was the restoration of her mental processes. This woman who was supposedly do to remain virtually brain dead for the rest of her life was swiftly regaining total use of her mind.

Now that Pearl was able to eat food once again, Dale insisted on being the one to feed her. He used mealtimes as opportunities to speak the word of over his wife as she ate and it wasn’t long before he saw the results of his efforts.

“I was sitting there feeding Pearl,” Dale recalls, “when I saw two fingers of Pearl’s right hand come alive then begin to move! When that happened, I immediately placed the spoon between those two fingers and helped her to begin to feed herself. By the end of that day, Pearl’s entire right hand was no longer be paralyzed. And by the next morning the next morning, her right arm and shoulder had also come to life. The principles of faith and the Authority of the believer we had learned years ago was working effectively in our lives!

“Pearl greatly enjoyed being able to feed herself once again. But her right leg was still as lifeless a bowl of Jell-O. So I prayed, “Lord what’s wrong? Why has Pearls arm come alive but her leg is still paralyzed?”

“The Lord spoke to my spirit, saying, ‘You haven’t spoken to their specific they “mountain” yet’. Then impressed me to look up 11: 25, which says, a “… I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

“So I sat next to be Pearls hospital bed with an open Bible in hand and began to declare, “Leg, you may be dead – but you’re going to live! The life of God is flowing into you!” I sat there for four hours without moving, speaking the Word to that leg.”

Then all of the sudden, Pearl said to her husband, “Honey, get my shoes.” Dale looked at her legs and realized that Pearl was wiggling her toes! He could even see the nerves and muscles in her leg begin to jump and move as they came to life.

Dale joyfully looked for a nurse. When he found her, he asked, “Where’s Pearl’s shoes? She needs them, because she’s going to walk!” The nurse’s response of skepticism was predictable as she followed Dale back to Pearl’s room. But when she witnessed the movement in Pearls leg and toes, within moments, Pearl had her shoes!

Dale once again applied the simple faith principles he had learned from Brother Hagen’s books. “I knew faith had to have corresponding action,” he explained. “So I helped Pearl put her shoes on. Then I supported her with my own body as I helped her stand upright and take a few steps. She didn’t walk very well that first time – but she did walk!”

All Pearl needed now was therapy and exercise to help strengthen the leg that had just come back to life. To everyone’s amazement, she was walking up and down the hospital hallways using a Walker within two days. And less than two weeks later, she walked out of the hospital and her own accord!

Those in the medical field who are familiar with Pearl’s case are astounded her miraculous healing. They know the enormous odds that were against her surviving the ruptured brain aneurysm and massive stroke, much less being completely restored! But that is exactly what happened. Pearl now enjoys full use of her motor skills and leads an active, healthy life as a wife, mother, grandmother, and minister of the Gospel.

When asked about her brain – which, according to medical science, was never to be normal again – Pearl said, “My mind is probably better than it was before I had the ruptured aneurysm and stroke! For instance, I’ve noticed that I’m able to solve math problems in my head that I could never have solved before without writing them down. And except for those first four weeks of my stay in the hospital, my memory has been completely restored. In fact, you wouldn’t know to look at me that I ever went through a life-threatening ordeal such a short time ago!”

Today, Pearl minister’s right alongside her husband as they travel in evangelistic work around the country. The central message they proclaim wherever they go is “How To Live an Not Die.”

As Dale applied the principles of mountain-moving faith that Brother Hagen taught them, Pearl’s “mountain of death was moved out of their lives. And now the Raatze’s teach others the timeless truths of God’s Word so they can also receive God’s best through believing faith!

Power of effective prayers: New Testament examples

20160130_151531 prayersEffective prayers have helped me. Lately I am more and more aware of my prayers being answered and granted. I have gathered below several New Testament prayers and the condition of the prayerful hearts that God looks for, as recorded in the Scriptures. I pray that many too will find strength and wisdom from the prayers.

What Jesus (and also as testified by the Holy Spirit in the Scriptures) has thus taught His disciples and believers:

  1. Matthew 5:1-12 God is pleased to bless this heart and attitude. God likes a humble heart.
  2. Matthew 6:5-8, 14-15 God looks for the right attitude and motive. God likes a forgiving heart.
  3. Mathew 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4 The prayer Jesus teaches His disciples to pray to our Father in heaven.
  4. Luke 11:5-13 Jesus teaches His disciples on the prerequisite of prayer: be persistent; take the initiative to pray-ask, seek, and knock; trust God as our Father in heaven who gives good gifts through the Holy Spirit.
  5. Hebrews 11:1-3,6 God is pleased with faith. God rewards faith. We cannot fake faith.
  6. Hebrews 10:35-39 We are saved by faith. God says that we will live by faith. Hold fast to the confidence that we shall be richly rewarded.
  7. Matthew 6:19-34 Jesus teaches us how to set our priorities. Focus on God’s things first.
  8. 1 John 5:13-15 For prayers to be heard, we need to pray according to the will of God. The prerequisite is that we must first know God and know Jesus, the Son of God He sent. Then we shall know His will, and have the confidence to approach Him and ask and know He will grant us those requests.
  9. 3 John 2-4  John’s all powerful and encompassing prayer for believers: Prosperity (success) in all aspects, health and spiritual strength.
  10. Ephesians 1:3, 1:15-23, 3:14-21 Paul’s all time prayers for the believers. To be spiritually open to know God, the hope of His calling, the greatness of His power toward those who believe, to be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit in our inner men, to be rooted and established in God’s love (the love of Christ).

Sharing on healing and receiving from God

20160129_122940 copyI received this healing teaching recently. It says exactly many of us worried about. Why we still see the symptoms? How shall we deal with them?

Sharing on healing and receiving from God

(Mohr’s Intern – 1/25/16)

You speak to it, whatever it is, and then you praise God.

Warts on her daughter’s hand and feet were very upsetting to her daughter at 11 years old.

“We are going to pray and then every morning when you wake up you are going to say, ‘Thank you, Jesus, that they are gone.’”

It took 28 days and the warts were all gone!  What if she would have said after 2 days, “Nothing is happening,” and stopped?

When you have something visual on your body that you see every day in the mirror it is harder to believe.  “This is how it is for me.  When it is a pain on the inside of me it is easy to speak to.  But when it is something I see in the mirror, it takes extra more faith, right?”

God wants us to thank Him and praise Him as if it has already happened.  THAT IS WHAT BRINGS THE VICTORY.

If your victory is only going to take 11 days, could you take captive every single thought that comes into your mind that does not line up with the truth?  Can you put on worship music every time that symptom comes back or every time you get a thought of the issue that you have declared healing or victory over?

Can I say, every time I have a thought about it, “Nope, I have spoken over it and it is done!”

Only 2 Israelites entered into the Promised Land because the others did not trust God.  They complained, but they did not trust.  Even though they had seen miracle after miracle, they kept going back to that mentality of unbelief.

As we walk through this journey – whatever we are going through – it is so important to have the Word of God before our eyes the whole time.  We learn by seeing, by hearing, by speaking.  That is how the Word of God becomes alive in us.

Many times we take a scripture that we have in our head – that we already know – and we quote it and may even speak it out.

Kenneth Copeland said that we may know what a food tastes like, that it is good, but my memory of this food does not give my body nutrition UNLESS I EAT IT.  It is the same with the Word of God.

Denise, you may have knowledge of the Word, but you may actually be starving spiritually because you are not feasting on the Word.

When you are busy or hurting you may think it is enough to take out the scriptures that you have in your head, but the Word needs to be before your eyes.

The quick and powerful Word of God – Keep It Always Before Your Eyes.

Speak it.  Hear yourself say it.  Our words are more powerful than anyone else’s words.  Faith comes by

hearing and hearing by the Word of God.  Our faith grows the most when our heart and our ears hear

our mouth speak out the Word of God.

Carrie Pickett:  Go back to basics. Spirit, Soul, and Body.

Have the Word in front of us all the time.  Have scriptures that you are looking at, speaking, meditating upon, and hearing.  Speak it out yourself.

We do not know when the end is coming.  The Israelites only had an 11 day journey but they made it take 40 years because they did not trust God.  We do not know how long our breakthrough is going to take.  But it could be only 11 days.  It could be only 28 days.  It may feel like we are in a corridor.

One of the reasons we are in a corridor is because God is trying to speak to us.

God is doing everything He can to move heaven and earth for me to get that revelation that I am believing for.  All He wants me to do is agree with Him.

Sometimes it looks like He is not doing anything, BUT HE IS!

Jesus is praying for me 24/7!!  What a blessing!  There is no one in this world that prays for us 24/7!  He wants me to get that revelation I need.

Andrew could have had the cancer on his ear taken care of by Doctors.  But he said, “If I am going to walk by faith, I need to stand on faith – this needs to go by faith.”

The biggest issue was all the unbelief people spoke over him.  Friends were saying, “That’s a melanoma.  That could be all throughout your body.”

The friends were in fear and they wanted Andrew to live.  Their motives were good, but they were not agreeing that he was healed.  What took so long for Andrew was that he had to get rid of all the unbelief.  He could see his ear and everyone else could see it.  When you have something visible and people speak it over you, even behind your back, those words need to be rebuked.

Think about what you say!  Don’t speak negative words over yourself or anyone…even if they cannot hear you.  We are walking with others on their journey.  We will not counter what they are trying to do.

We have to be aware that the delay is US, not the Lord.  The Holy Spirit wants to help us clean up the unbelief.

But NO CONDEMNATION!!  It is our journey that becomes our testimony!!

In your journey, when you feel it is never going to happen, remember that if the Israelites would have known that it was only an 11 day journey, they WOULDN’T HAVE COMPLAINED.  THEY WOULDN’T HAVE HAD ANY UNBELIEF.  They would have already “seen” the results and they would have trusted God.

We can ask God and sometimes He will tell us – but other times He says, “Trust Me, Trust Me.”

God is pleased with our faith.  Without faith it is impossible to please Him, so With Faith It IS Possible to Please Him!

He is looking for people who want to walk by faith.  Am I one of those?  Am I pleasing Him by my faith?  My faith is a testimony of the Gospel.

Maybe this thing I am dealing with I could solve itself.  You could have it removed or you could take medicine. “I challenge you today to ask God first.”  “God do you want me to walk this out by faith?”  “Make sure he says yes before you make a decision.”

“If we are not going to take something to believe for and walk it out in faith, how are we going to learn?”  How are we going to exercise our faith?  How are we going to know the power of God?

Just take what is bothering you – a mark on your body – a little thing – anything — and say, “Ok, God, I want to see this work.  I want this gone.  I don’t want to use all of the world’s ways.  I want to do it YOUR WAY – BY FAITH.  And I want to see it work!  It’s exciting because it is already done!  We know it is already done!”

The Israelites did have issues, like a slavery mentality.  BUT they saw all the miracles.  They could have believed.  They had the manna and the quail, and all the miracles back in Egypt that they saw first-hand, but they doubted God’s love, God’s power, God’s faithfulness.

Stay in that peace.  Stay in that thankfulness.  You WILL get your answer.  You WILL get your breakthrough.   You WILL get your revelation.   You WILL get your healing!

“Our Authority Releases God’s Power” : a timely teaching today

andrew03

I found this good and relevant article today as I ponder on why there are people who are not healed. Why do Christians feel helpless when encountering sickness in their own family? What has God provided for us who believe? I was led to look at the resources which I have trusted for over ten years, online and here is the exact message I need! I have received feedback that many have been blessed by the resources and teachings from the Bible-based healing web-sites posted here. I pray this one and the related audio/video teachings will help you too.

“Our Authority Releases God’s Power”

by Andrew Wommack 
There are a number of keys to seeing the miraculous power of God manifest on a consistent basis. One of the least understood, and therefore seldom practiced, is the fact that healing is under the authority of the believer. God has already provided His healing power and placed it on the inside of every born-again believer. It is up to us to release it. Understanding and using our authority is the key to seeing miracles happen.

Look at how Peter and John ministered healing to the lame man in Acts 3:1-8:

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.”

Notice that Peter didn’t pray for this man. He also didn’t ask God to heal him. He said, “Such as I have give I thee.” This didn’t mean that Peter was the source of this healing. Notice what Peter said in Acts 3:12,

“And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?”

It was God’s power that healed this man, but that power was under Peter’s authority. Peter went on to say in verse 16 that it was faith in the name of Jesus that had wrought this miracle. But Peter didn’t ask God to heal this man. He believed the Lord had already done His part and had placed that power within him. Now it was Peter’s responsibility to release that power, and that’s just what he did.

The Lord never told us to pray for the sick in the sense that we ask Him to heal them. He told us to heal the sick. There is a BIG difference between the two. It has to do with operating in the authority He has already given us. Look at these commands the Lord gave His disciples.

“Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”(Luke 9:1-2)

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

“And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” (Matt. 10:7-8)

Jesus told us to heal the sick not pray for the sick. What a radical statement! This will get you kicked out of most churches today, but these are the exact words of our Lord Jesus Christ. And this is precisely why more people don’t see the miraculous results they’re praying for. They aren’t taking their authority and commanding God’s power; they’re passively asking God to do what He told them to do.

I know this goes contrary to popular Christian doctrine. We’re constantly told that it’s not us but God who is the Healer, and I agree with that totally. But, I also believe that God has placed His healing power under our authority, and it is up to us to release it. If we don’t take our authority and become commanders instead of beggars, God’s power will not be released. There needs to be a radical renewing of our thinking on this issue.

A good friend of mine, Dave Duell, held a meeting in Africa many years ago. It was one of his first times he saw miracles such as the blind and deaf healed. The people were so excited that they were mobbing him as he walked through the streets, trying to touch him so they could be healed. His first thought was influenced by this religious thinking I’m trying to change. He thought, They shouldn’t be looking to me. I’m not the healer; it is Jesus. He was about to stop them when the Lord spoke to him. The Lord said, “Dave, do you remember when I rode that donkey into Jerusalem, and all the people put their garments and palm branches in the way and cried, ‘Hosanna’? What would you have thought if the donkey had spoken up and said, ‘It’s not me! It’s not me’? That would only have revealed the donkey’s arrogance. No one was praising the donkey; they were praising the One that was riding the donkey.”

When Dave recognized the people weren’t trying to touch him but the One he was carrying, he let them touch him all they wanted and people were healed. This is exactly what happened with the first-century disciples. Peter had people line the streets so that if only his shadow would touch them, they would be healed (Acts. 5:15).

Look at an amazing passage of Scripture in Isaiah 45:11.

“Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.”

What a powerful scripture! What does the Lord mean when He tells us to command Him? Well, He certainly doesn’t mean we are mightier and more powerful than Him and can order Him around. He means, concerning the things He has already done, He wants us to take our authority and command His power.

It’s like electricity. The power company generates the power and delivers it to your house. It’s not your power, but it’s under your control. You don’t call the power company and ask them to turn the lights on. No! They won’t do that. They generate the power, but it’s under your command. You simply flip the switch on the wall and command the power to work. Does this mean you are the power source? Certainly not! You can put a light bulb in your mouth, and it will never come on. You aren’t the power source, but you are the one in control of what that power does. You can plead with the power company all you want, but they won’t flip the switch for you. You have to assume your authority and acknowledge the power is under your command.

That’s what the Lord was speaking of. He has already healed everyone who will ever be healed. He did it two thousand years ago when He bore our stripes on His back. Then He deposited His resurrection power inside every believer (Eph. 1:19-20). He’s done His part, and now it is up to us to do ours. We need to take the authority He has given us and become commanders instead of beggars. This is a powerful truth that works, and it’s the reason we see so many miraculous healings. We aren’t just praying for the sick; we are healing them in Jesus’ name.

I know this line of thinking raises as many questions as it does answers, so I’ve produced a teaching on The Believer’s Authority. I have some radical teachings in this album. For example, who do you think made Satan? Most people think that God made Satan, but that’s not so. God created Lucifer, a wonderful, powerful, godly angel, but it was mankind who made Satan. There is a difference between creating and making. This could revolutionize your whole approach toward the devil. Satan isn’t using some superhuman, angelic authority against us; he’s using the authority and power that was given to man by God. Therefore, Satan can’t do anything to us without our consent and cooperation. Hallelujah!

Healed testimony: depression

depressed woman

Healed testimony: Personally I know of people healed of severe depression through God’s words and prayers. A primary care doctor started weekly Bible study and prayer meetings with a small group of Christin women (friends) who all had suffered from depressions. They had depressions for many years, gone through various treatments of psychiatric medications (with psychological therapies), and were still suffering the fluctuation of moods, and drug-associated side effects. Relationship and quality of lives were adversely affected. The outcome after months and years of persistent and consistent meetings was that all were able to resume functioning of their daily lives without regular doses of medications or lapses that warrant hospitalization. The Christian women who attended the meetings regularly were able to participate more in their daily living, and enjoy a better quality of life with their loved ones. Some went on to creating and building a successful career for themselves.

Here is a summary of what they do in the weekly Bible study meetings:

  1. Worship and praise God in Spirit and in Truth. Pray in the Spirit.
  2. Read the positive words of God in the Bible.
  3. Learn to watch the mouth and thought: not to believe and repeat the lies (negative thoughts) in the mind with the mouth.
  4. Learn to challenge the negative thoughts and substitute with positive thoughts (read in the Bible): believe in all the good things that Jesus has done for each of us, copy a list of them, proclaim aloud the list.
  5. Share and pray for one another, using the positive words from the Bible.
  6. Have sisterly fellowship. Share and pray for families and loved ones.
  7. Learn to focus on what God cares for instead of just themselves. Look at the big picture. Pray for the needs of others as they are led by the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit).

The materials used during the meetings:

  1. the Bible
  2. a classic book on healing: Healing the Sick
