The Cause of Physical Problems

Monday, February 20th, 2017

Jesus expressly stated His ministry of Love in Luke chapter 4:

18 ​​“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,

​​Because He has anointed Me

​​To preach the gospel to the poor;

​​He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

​​To proclaim liberty to the captives

​​And recovery of sight to the blind,

​​To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

19 ​​To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Given this declaration which originated from FATHER, we must not give credence to any alternative, physical solutions to the issues Jesus described.  Jesus clearly had no issue with the physicians of His day or He would have surely expressed it when He healed the woman with the issue of blood in Luke chapter 8:

43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,

44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.

45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”  When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”

47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

Is it FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love for us to spend all of our livelihood on alternatives to FATHER’S expressed Intent to heal?  Those who are fearful are of little faith (Matthew 8:26).  Stephen is described in Acts chapter 6 of being full of faith:

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people

Barnabas was also full of faith and in Acts chapter 11 we see the fruit:

22 Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.

23 When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.

24 For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.

Consider the results of strong faith- Many are saved, the sick are healed, demons are cast out, great signs results, and the dead are raised.  How committed are we to building our faith up?  What will we set aside in order to focus on building up great faith?  Let us read, study, and meditate on HIS Word until our faith is built up and be declared by Our Lord Jesus Christ to be “great” faith.  With great faith we will be able to deal with any physical problem before us, whether at a personal level or someone who comes in need.  The result of great faith will drawn people into The Kingdom and that is what it is all about.

Total Wellness Newsletter, October 2016.  https://prestigepublishing.com/products/total-wellness-newsletter

Dear Friends,
As promised last month, I’ll show you another very inexpensive
phytonutrient that also helps stave off Alzheimer’s. And it
couldn’t be more simple and more economical.
But first you need to take another quantum leap into the world of
God’s miraculous design of the human body. Caution: You will
once again know more than most physicians you will ever meet.
But since you are your main healer, you need to. So if it overwhelms
you, don’t worry. You will absorb as much as you need
for now and re-reading will escalate you to new heights.

In terms of the nervous system, just by itself ginger
has been used for insomnia, neuroses, psychiatric disorders,
stroke, depression, and dementia (memory deterioration
and early stages of Alzheimer’s) as well as
having a protective effect against aging and degenerative
diseases due to its antioxidant capacity
. And
by being an “amyloid eater”, it lowers the protein
that causes Alzheimer’s. Yet best of all, ginger also
actually (1) accelerates the growth of nerves in the
hippocampus where new memory is created. If that
were not great enough by itself, (2) ginger helps
boost the genes that are necessary for new memory,
and (3) helps to grow new connections (synapses) in
the brain (necessary for making new memory).

Statins

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Servias Ministries is a subscriber to Dr. Sherry Rogers’ monthly newsletter.  She was a friend of Dr. Vince Speckhart and is determined to help those who will listen.  She backs up her claims by research published by professionals in the industry.  Her latest newsletter included this quote:

“Dear Friends,

I’m going to start this month’s TW with a question that is so frequently asked and so important to understand that I can’t save it for the Readers’ Great Questions section. For medicine actually uses (1) scare tactics like telling folks they will die, as well as (2) quoting from medical journals incorrectly from improperly performed studies, and even (3) threatening to cancel seeing a patient if they refuse to take statins.  For in fact the overwhelming evidence shows that statins are one of the biggest mistakes ever made in the history of modern medicine. You cannot poison the chemistry of the brain and every cell membrane in every organ without serious consequences. Statins are a known cause of sudden amnesia which is a major threat everywhere from highways and skyways to operating room suites. And not only do statins increase diabetes,cancers, unnecessary fractures, and other chronic diseases, but statins are a major cause of our epidemic of Alzheimer’s.”

Health Notes

Friday, April 29th, 2016

From Sherry Rogers’ latest newsletter:

First many of you are mistakenly looking for a single “magical” cure for your years of suffering. You have forgotten that cure involves looking at the total package. The foods you eat, your environmental pollutants in your home and office, your stress/un-forgiveness/anger levels, the undiagnosed dysbioses in your gut, plus molds in your foods, gut and home environments. And mercury “silver” fillings, plus the multitude of implants: dental, joint, lens, breast, mesh, surgical clips and stents, plus scars from injury or surgery, all are capable of seriously blocking meridians. In other words, they stop the flow of the body’s healing electricity.    From Total Wellness newsletter,May 2016 issue.

As you can see, we each have a unique history of interferences in our bio-field thus all the contradictions listed for drugs as they interact with our uniqueness.  I strongly advocate supplements and essential oils to promote health.  I classify Dr. Rogers as a “healer” rather than a “treater”.  Dr. Speckhart was in the same category.  Anything that will raise your “frequency” or vibrational state will encourage health.  Organic foods tend to have higher frequencies than processed food.

I attribute my rapid recovery from my 5th half marathon from taking this product.

Another interesting quote in Dr. Rogers’ newletter:

Did you ever wonder why there is such an explosion of cataract surgery in the United States? Or for that matter, did you ever wonder how researchers get hundreds of laboratory animals with cataracts with which to test their experimental drugs and surgeries? For in the human it takes years of specific deficiencies and everyday toxins to eventually produce cataracts. But one of the quickest way to create cataracts in experimental animals is just give them Tylenol (generic is acetaminophen or also aracetamol which is a precursor, as sold in other countries)… For Tylenol also has been shown to create much more damage, such as kidney cancers, liver and kidney failure, brain fog from damaged detoxification, and even heart muscle necrosis. So what can you do to protect yourself if you do decide that you want to use acetaminophen hidden in Tylenol, Excedrin, Midol, TheraFlu, Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine, NyQuil Cold and Flu or prescription Vicodin or Percocet?

She strongly recommends taking steps to detoxify.  You can read her book “Detoxify or Die”.   http://www.amazon.com/Detoxify-Die-Sherry-A-Rogers/dp/1887202048/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Vitamin D3

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

The following is a quote from Dr. Sherry Rogers in the October 2015 Total Wellness Newsletter we subscribe to:

“You will see many studies proving that regardless of how near death people were, how antibiotic resistant they were, how riddled with infection, and how hopeless their situations looked, if they were given nutrients, well over half of near-death ICU folks survived. These were people who were in intensive care units in the best hospitals in the world with the top specialists. In desperation, someone thought of revving up their nutritional status so they could fight off the lethal bugs. In some studies that I’ve reported to you literally pennies of nutrients produced over 57% survival in ICU folks who were all supposed to die of overwhelming antibiotic-resistant sepsis. No drug has this power.

Meanwhile, this exemplary (anti-vitamin D) paper merely highlighted the inexplicable ignorance of the researchers. It showed they were unschooled in the scores of studies proving over a decade ago that

(1) the “norm” for vitamin D is not correct (see TW 2013-2014 for the evidence that the commercial lab values are not normal, but grossly inferior and incapable of healing anything but rickets), and

2) that there is an epidemic deficiency of vitamin D across all socio- economic levels in the United States (some researchers claim as much as 80% of the people are dangerously deficient in vitamin D).

Furthermore, (3) you cannot heal anything, from recurrent heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, cancers, or recurrent infections without sufficient vitamin D.

But as a result of this faulty study it has become fuel for the rationing of care. Now insurance companies can fall back on this“prestigious” Journal of the American Medical Association article and use it to justify denial of coverage for vitamin D blood tests! Make sure you get about 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3.” End Quote

I met Dr. Rogers when I attended a conference with Dr. Speckhart in Orlando back in 2005.  She has a history of emphasizing preventative care for her patients.

Creation’s Nutrients sells Vitamin D3 and this is where my wife and I obtain the product:  https://www.creationsnutrients.us  We are very satisfied with the quality, formulation, and price.  Not all products have the same quality and formulation.

Based on Dr. Rogers’ recommendation, we are upping our dosage from 5,000 IU to 10,000 IU per day.  I would rather spend a few extra bucks on prevention than possibly paying my deductible for a cure.

To Summarize

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

You have now had seven steps to healing given to you over the last seven days:

STEP ONE. Know physical healing is part of Christ’s ministry today. The age of miracles has NOT passed.

STEP TWO. Know FATHER’S Promises to heal in the Scriptures, and be convinced they are for YOU personally.

STEP THREE. Understand that FATHER wants you well. 

STEP FOUR. Understand that Divine healing is included in your salvation.

STEP FIVE. Ask FATHER to heal you according to HIS Promises and believe HE hears you.

STEP SIX. Believe when you pray that you have received what you asked for.

STEP SEVEN. Praise HIM for the answer, and ACT on His Promise.

Over the last century, many have been healed by acting on these steps, myself included.  But there seems to have been a dramatic decrease in healings in recent years.  I would say that the one missing aspect of ministry has been the revelation and foundation of Love.  The Divine Intent behind every healing is FATHER’S Love for HIS children.  Many evangelists began with that foundation but later replaced the foundation with greed.  In the meantime, believers have substituted the world’s solutions to sickness and disease only to find those solutions to be temporary in nature.

It is important for us to reestablish the basics of walking in faith but with a foundation of Love.  That is the proper way to be vessels of HIS Service.  As we embrace the two commandments of Love consistently in our daily walk, we will be empowered to walk as Jesus walked.  We should expect HIS Promises to be applicable to us just as they have been throughout history. 

These seven steps to healing will bring about the fulfillment of any promise FATHER has made. Any blessing which Christ died to provide will manifest to anyone who follows these steps and whose Divine Intent is Love. You could summarize them in three points:

1) KNOW what FATHER has promised.

2) ASK HIM to DO what He has promised.

3) ACT like HE has done what He has promised.

When you have a clear knowledge and understanding of FATHER’S Promise to you, and have asked HIM to fulfill it, then HE expects you to begin to do, by faith, what you could not do before. Your actions, praise, and gratitude prove the reality of your faith, and FATHER confirms HIS Word to you.

Rise above your doubts and fears.  Prove your faith by your actions.  Now you can go free.  Call upon THE LORD, confess HIS Promise to you, and ask HIM to fulfill it.  Believe and know that HE hears you. 

Take new courage. Say, "Nevertheless, because YOU say it, I believe it thus I am healed!" Believe it now with all your heart, and act on it.  YOU want me to be well and strong so I can serve YOU by fulfilling my calling YOU established before I entered into the womb.

FATHER, I come expecting YOU to fulfill YOUR promise made to me:  I AM THE LORD WHO heals you.  I ask YOU do it now in Jesus’ Name, according to YOUR Word. I rebuke the enemy who has caused my suffering. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command the life of my sickness to leave, and every symptom to be destroyed by the power of MY LOVING FATHER.  FATHER, I thank YOU that YOU have heard and answer me now. I claim my healing now, according to YOUR Promise. Thank YOU that the source of my sickness is destroyed, and as Jesus promised, I shall recover. AMEN!

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for HE who promised is faithful.

24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,

STEP SEVEN

Monday, July 13th, 2015

THANK FATHER AND ACT ON HIS PROMISE

If you really believe God has answered you, and that you have received the healing you requested, you will naturally do two things: 1) You’ll thank Him for it. 2) You’ll put your new health into action. As Paul wrote in Romans chapter 4 about Abraham who gave glory to FATHER for the fulfillment of HIS promise, long before the answer manifested.:

16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”

19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.

20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to GOD,

21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Abraham was fully persuaded that FATHER had power to DO WHAT HE HAD PROMISED.  He believed FATHER’S Word, and thanked Him. Jonah also gave thanks for release from the fish’s belly, BEFORE it vomited him up:

Jonah 2:8 ​​“Those who regard worthless idols

​​Forsake their own Mercy.

9 ​​But I will sacrifice to You

​​With the voice of thanksgiving;

​​I will pay what I have vowed.

​​Salvation is of the LORD.”

You may take all the other six steps of faith, but if when you pray for healing you do not believe enough to ACT ON God’s promises, your faith is nullified. So important is this, that FATHER devotes a whole chapter of the New Testament to it.  In James chapter 2, we are told to act on faith and are given Abraham and Rahab as examples to reference:

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!

20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?

22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.

24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

This is the vital proof, that your faith is genuine. What good is it if someone claims to have faith, but has no deeds. (corresponding actions) Can such faith save you?  Faith without deeds is useless or dead.  All through the Bible, people of faith were people of ACTION. Those who believed FATHER’S, those who acted on HIS Word.  Jesus said to the paralytic, Get up! Take your mat, and go home. The man didn’t question Jesus saying, "But Lord, I’m paralyzed!" He believed Christ’s spoken word enough to ACT on it. His action proved his faith. He got up, took his mat, and walked out in full view of them all:

Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

6 And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts,

7 “Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

8 But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?

9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’?

10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic,

11 “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”

12 Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

Peter’s Mother-in-law lay in bed with fever. Luke tells us in chapter 4, Jesus rebuked the fever:

39  So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and served them.

Mark 1:31  So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.

This is a perfect example of real faith in action: 1) Jesus rebuked the fever. 2) Jesus made her get up, and act her faith. 3) The fever left her, and she was well. Peter did the same to the cripple in Acts 3:

6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.

9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God.

10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

And again in Acts 9 to another cripple:

32 Now it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda.

33 There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed.

34 And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed.” Then he arose immediately.

We have no problem in acting on what a doctor in a white coat tells us to do and take countless pharmaceuticals in response.  We believe him enough to take the drugs before we feel any results. We should act on the Word of FATHER, WHO tells us; I AM THE LORD WHO heals you:

Exodus 15:26  and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.” 

By His wounds you have been healed as 1 Peter 2:24 tells us. We must believe Him and His Word for us.  We must go to FATHER in prayer for healing. We must believe HE hears and answers. We must walk in gratitude for all that HE has done for us and is doing for us now.  We must be quiet and hear HIM when he tells us to arise from our sick-bed even before we feel any results. When we act on the Word, FATHER CONFIRMS it.

Jeremiah 1:12  Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”

We must believe FATHER’S Word today and act on it now. This writing is to bring to light that FATHER is still in the restoration business, including restoring our health.  These Scriptures are to assist you in building your faith and to walk in faith knowing that HIS Love for us is greater than any sickness or disease.  The promises of healing are of no benefit to those who will not act on them.  if you refuse to accept, and act on FATHER’S Word, your faith is dead. No matter who prays for you the prayer of faith, your own unbelief renders their prayers ineffective because you fail to act on FATHER’S Word.  In reality, your failure to act is your refusal to accept the answer.  FATHER does not promise to begin healing you until after you believe you have received the answer:

Mark 11:24  “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

Your faith gets stronger as you act on FATHER’S Word. FATHER will create in your body the very thing you need to be well and strong. Sickness will become health. Impossibilities will become possibilities.   Sickness is not the opposite of health, it is the lack of health.  FATHER designed you to be healthy and HE designed your body to heal itself.  Seek HIM and HE will respond.  After all, HE Loves you.  Be grateful for for all HE does.

BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED WHAT YOU ASKED FOR THIS IS FAITH

Simply believe, WHEN YOU PRAY, that you have received what you prayed for. Some people pray for years, asking repeatedly for something God has promised. But they refuse to believe they have the answer until they see or feel it. That is NOT faith. Faith is simply expecting FATHER to do what HE has said HE’LL do. HE promised: Everyone who asks, receives.

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

Faith believes that even before it is seen or felt. You trust in FATHER’S Promise alone. If you have no faith, you will trust your natural senses, and be disappointed. FATHER calls us to: Walk by faith, not by sight:

2 Co. 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Faith is superior to the natural: it is supernatural. Without faith it is impossible to please FATHER. (Heb. 11:6)  Have faith in FATHER’S Word, HIS Promise, and YOU WILL be rewarded. It is not enough to agree that FATHER’S Word is true. Many people say they believe it, but they refuse to ACT on what it says. Genuine faith ACTS on FATHER’S Word. You only really believe as far as you act on what you claim to believe.  Know that HIS Divine Intent of Love focuses on restoration of spirit, soul, AND body.

1 Peter 2:24  who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

Hope says, When I feel it, or see it, I’ll be sure I have it. But faith declares, It is written that I have it now, so it is mine NOW! Learn to walk by faith, and let faith in FATHER’S Word rule over your natural senses. FATHER’S way is for you to look to HIS promise. Your way is to look at the problem or disease. You watch symptoms, read medical books, surf the Internet, listen to people telling you to be careful, filling you with fear, doubt, and sense knowledge. But Jesus pronounced the blind man healed while he was still blind! …And he received his sight.

Luke 8:40 So it was, when Jesus returned, that the multitude welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him.

41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged Him to come to his house,

42 for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying.

But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him.

43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,

44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.

45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”

When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”

47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

He declared the lepers cleansed when the disease was still there: …And as they went, they were healed.  He thanked FATHER for raising Lazarus, even while Lazarus was still dead.  Faith is believing FATHER has done what we asked, even before we see it. Like FATHER does, we too: Call things that are not, as though they were.

Romans 4:17  (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

WHEN TO BELIEVE

One of the most important lessons to learn, is to believe you receive when you ask. Jesus said, Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, and IT WILL be yours.  Jesus spoke:

Mk. 11:24  “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

Notice; believe you receive as you pray– not after 20 years, or after you get well, but while you are asking. Most folks do it in reverse! They say, "Seeing is believing." But FATHER’S order is the opposite, "Believing is seeing."

WHEN HEALING STARTS

FATHER promises to begin your healing only AFTER you believe HE has heard, and answered your prayer. If we know that HE hears us–whatever we ask–we know that we have what we asked of him:

1 John 5:15  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Knowing that FATHER has promised the blessing which you seek, when you ask HIM to do it, you know you are asking according to HIS will, because HIS Promise IS HIS WILL. Knowing that; you have perfect confidence HE hears your prayer, so you know you HAVE the answer because FATHER keeps His Promises. Jesus said: If you believe, YOU WILL RECEIVE whatever you ask for in prayer. (Matthew 21:22) That is praying the prayer of faith. And if your prayers are not prayers of faith they are a waste of breath. So learn to pray like Jesus prayed, and taught US to pray.  Love responds!

ASK JESUS TO HEAL YOU AND BELIEVE HE HEARS YOU

Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish?

12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

If you have accepted Christ as your personal Savior, you have become a child of GOD, and HE is your FATHER. You are not a beggar! FATHER wants you to come to HIM with confidence as a child comes to its loving parents. To pray with faith does not mean to beg and plead for healing. Since you know FATHER has promised to heal you, and wants to heal you, you only have to ask and believe. Your Heavenly Father derives great pleasure from seeing you well, happy, strong & healthy. Just as any earthly parents want the best for their child. Do you enjoy seeing children suffer?  Neither does your Father enjoy seeing you suffer. FATHER invites believers to come to the throne of grace with confidence.

Our Compassionate High Priest:

Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Jesus promised in John 15:

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their prayers:

1 Peter 3:12 

“For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
And His ears
are open to their prayers;
But the face of the LORD
is against those who do evil.”

You have been made righteous in FATHER’S sight by faith in Christ. (Ro. 3:21-22) So when you pray, asking HIM to do what you know HE has promised to do; you can be certain HE hears your prayer.  We need to really believe that! HE is interested in you, cares about you, and it is HIS pleasure to answer your request. John wrote in his first epistle:

14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Prayer for Healing:

FATHER, I thank you that you are THE LORD my Healer. I am thankful to know that your plan for my redemption INCLUDES physical healing. Thank you for your infinite love for me. Now that I understand that Jesus not only suffered the full punishment of my sins, but He also bore all the consequences of my sinful nature. Now I know that Jesus took upon Himself my diseases, and suffered my pains; my physical diseases, so that I can be completely healed. His body was tortured. He was beaten, bruised, and torn for me. All my sickness was laid on Him, so I could be free. I believe that, I accept that. FATHER, I respond to your love, I accept YOUR LIFE into my life, and I receive YOUR miracle ZOE LIFE in me right now.  I welcome YOUR manifested Presence, peace, life & health into my life. YOUR Son bore my sins, and my diseases. Now, I am free of them. When YOUR Son suffered my sicknesses… by His wounds I was healed. The grace and life of Christ lives in me, and heals me of sin and disease. I am saved. I am healed. I am free. I now know Satan has lost all power over me. Therefore, no sin can dominate or condemn me, and no sickness has the right to stay in my body. My body is my FATHER’S house. Jesus, You are Lord! Your life is mine. Your health is mine. I am saved, and I am healed: Every symptom of my old life; my old sins and mistakes, my old pains & sicknesses must now disappear, because the Life and Power of Christ are healing, and making me whole now. From today, I shall enjoy health, because YOU are my life, my all. YOU are with me and in me now. Thank you Lord. Amen!

UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR PHYSICAL HEALING IS INCLUDED IN SALVATION

Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul;

​​And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2 ​​Bless the LORD, O my soul,

​​And forget not all His benefits:

3 ​​Who forgives all your iniquities,

​​Who heals all your diseases,

4 ​​Who redeems your life from destruction,

​​Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies,

Jesus the Healer, is Jesus the Savior: There’s no separation. The surest way to receive health for your body, is to accept the Healer into your heart. After you received Christ as Savior, you can now receive His healing for your body. He wants to forgive your sins AND heal your body!

Some people pray for healing, but refuse to accept Christ as Savior, and get nothing. However, others while thanking Christ for saving them, are healed in their bodies before they even ask! FATHER’S order for blessing is given in Psalm 103:3:  Who forgives all your sins, and heals all your diseases.  Jesus first forgave the paralytic’s sins, THEN He healed him.

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Jesus said, You must be born again.  This is the miracle of the New Birth. Christ enters your heart and makes you a new creature because He lives within you. We accept Him, He is a person, not a religion.  He is a reality, not a philosophy or a doctrine. As a result we are certain we Are Saved.  We should also be certain that He will heal us as well.

Acts 16:29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.

30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.

33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.

Jesus said, Those who believe (the Gospel) and are baptized will be saved. (Mark 16:16)  Paul said in Romans 10:

9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

And Peter spoke on the Day of Pentecost:

Acts 2:And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Shall be saved.

If you confess with your mouth…Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Do what these Scriptures say to do, and you will receive their promise. You will know that you have received Christ, and been born again.  Trust that Christ suffered enough to pay for all of your sins AND sicknesses. Those you have committed, and all those you may ever commit. Jesus paid it all. Trust that He was perfect; that His Blood was sinless. Trust that He was innocent, so that He could be your Substitute. Trust that nothing else needs to be done, no further price needs to be paid, no further penalty needs to be suffered, no good works, no offerings or sacrifices need to be added to what Christ did for you. Trust that God counts you righteous now, because of your faith in what Christ has done for you. Trust that He did ENOUGH.

I BELIEVE Jesus suffered the penalty of MY sins, and He paid the full price for my sins.  Jesus loved me too much to let me die for my own sins. Even though I was separated from FATHER by my sins,  HE and HIS Son loved me so much that HIS Plan was put in place to pay MY debt in full. His precious Blood was shed for the remission of my sins. Now that I trust in His sacrifice for me, I am free. No sin can condemn me, so I can NEVER be judged or condemned for my sins.

I accept HIS gift of righteousness, mercy, and love. I am a new creature, reborn from above with HIS Divine life in me. I TRUST that HIS Blood cleanses me of every sin in my life. I TRUST that HE did ENOUGH for ME, and that no further price needs to be paid. HE paid it all. I will never try to pay for my sins, never claim any merit, or offer any good works to have my past sins forgiven, or to be saved.

HE did ENOUGH Lord, 2,000 years ago. I am saved, because of what HE did for me. Nothing can ever improve my salvation. By your Blood, I am clean NOW. I have your life NOW. I am saved NOW. From this moment, I will follow you, and share the Good News of what you have done, so that others can receive your life too. Thank you Lord for my full salvation.  Don’t you think HE is as committed to heal us as He was and is to save us?
