Other Healings

By THE SPIRIT Matthew wrote in chapter 12:

22 Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw.

In Chapter 9:

32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a man, mute and demon-possessed.

33 And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, “It was never seen like this in Israel!”

Mark wrote by THE SPIRT in chapter 9:

21 So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”  And he said, “From childhood.

22 And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!”

26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.”

27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.

28 And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?”

29 So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer.”

Were these issues only specific to the time Jesus walked the earth?  Absolutely not!  FATHER would not have included all these examples if we were not to learn from them.  Demons were not eradicated from the earth in 33 A.D. but the disciples dealt with them as well.  The demons knew their time would eventually come with their final demise was at hand.  The legion of demons revealed that Truth before they were cast into the swine.

Some spirits of infirmity are more difficult to deal with than others.  The disciples asked Jesus why they were unable to cast this deaf and dumb spirit out.  Jesus revealed a key for us to consider- intimate prayer or communication with FATHER  prepares us for dealing with the spirits of this type.  HE is the Originator of the power required to cast our these spirits thus we must receive direction from HIM.

Would the local physician, specialist, or hospital been able to cure the above deaf mutes?  They would have referred to their training and used whatever protocols were approved by the Medical Association and only treated the symptoms at best.  They might have considered a cochlear implant, an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear.  That person would have to rely on the technology performance rather than FATHER’S perfect design.

Is it going to be easy for the Sons to be anointed to heal the above cases?  We must trust FATHER to bring forth HIS anointing and power at the appropriate time.  In the meantime we must not be ignorant of ministry in this area and shy away from dealing with spirits of infirmity.  Fear not as FATHER prepares us for all situations HE expects us to confront.  The multitudes will marvel just like they did when Jesus healed the one who was demon-possessed, blind and mute.  The Sons will give FATHER the full credit for the healing and not build an institution, following, or doctrine for self-exaltation.
