SEED : Jesus said: The Word is seed.Until a person seeking healing is sure from God's Word that it is Gods will to heal them they are trying to reap a harvest where there is no seed planted.It is God's will to plant the seed(Gods Word) in your heart before the harvest(manifestation of what we are believing God for).(Psalm 107:20)
When praying to God you must simply believe that your prayer is heard before we have experienced the answer.(Mark 11:24)
The word of God cannot be health to either the soul or body before it is heard,recieved and attended to.(Proverbs 4:20-22)
Instead of keeping our minds on the symptoms,circumstances,etc. we should instead occupy it with what Gods Word says ,thus ,doing this we plant the good seed planted.
On the Grounds of Jesus Christ Atonement for our sins and sicknesses there isn't any exceptions for healing ALL SICKNESSES.(Mathew 8:16-17)
God has seven Redemptive names and one of them is JEHOVAH-RAPA translated : I AM THE LORD THY PHYSICIAN or I AM THE LORD THAT HEALS THEE.The Word given to us is our redemptive privilege of being healed.
PSALM 91:16 God says concerning man "That dwell in the secret place of the Most High"
"With long life will I satisfy him".That promise is for ALL that dwell in the secret place,of trust and belief,in God and his Word.
What Jesus Christ did on Calvary was for ALL mankind,past,present and in the future.
God sent His Word and healed them! Psalm 107:20 Gods Word effectually works in them that believe,its health to ALL there flesh
(1 THESSALONIAN 2:13 / PROVERBS 4:22)
Jesus healed ALL diseases.Take time to read this for yourself. (MATTHEW 4:23-25,MATTHEW 9:35-36/10:1,MATTHEW 12:15,MATTHEW 14:14/34-36,LUKE 6:17-19)
In Mark 9:14-29 We see Jesus's disciples couldn't heal this man ONLY because of there unbelief!
Even Jesus had to rely on the Holy Spirit when healing and miracles took place,and so it is with us today.
To have compassion is to love tenderly,to pity,to show mercy,to be full of eager yearning.
God delights to show mercy!(MICAH 7:18,2 CHRONICLES 16:9)
Faith begins where the will of God is known.Faith must rest on the will of God alone,not on our desires or wishes.Appropriating faith is not believing God CAN but that HE WILL.The Word of God that you plant in yourself does the work.(THESSALONIANS 2:13,
We must be obedient to God for his Word to work for us.(EXODUS 15:26,DEUTERONOMY 7:15,PROVERBS 3:7-8,EPHESIANS 6:3,PSALM 84:11,PSALMS 91:14,DEUTERONOMY 7:9,PROVERBS 3:16)
Faith is governed by the pure Word of God and is nothing less than expecting God to do what He promises.God moves when we move: he gave his Word,then you believe it,than God moves again to appropriate your beliefs.God never moves out of turn.It honors God to believe Him even while every sense contradicts Him and His word.He promises to honor those who honor Him!
Jesus taught us that it is by our heed and attention to Gods Word that we measure His blessings to ourselves.(MARK 4:24)
Satan cannot hinder the "seed" from doing its work unless we allow him to get the seed out of the ground.He can only do this by getting you to turn your attention away from the Word of God on to your symptoms.
We are to think faith,speak faith,act faith and keep it until the promise is fulfilled.By being occupied with symptoms or feelings we violate the condition and thereby turn off the switch to God's power.
As we put forth effort in reliance on God,to do what without Him,is impossible,God meets us with divine power.The full exercise of faith means that we think,speak and act faith.This brings the manifestation of all that faith takes according to the promise of the Word.
HOW TO HAVE YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED
Hope is expecting a blessing some time in the future.Faith is taking now what God offers.Jesus authorizes and commands us to put the reception of the blessing we pray for in the PAST TENSE. (MARK 11:24) THOUSANDS are not getting healed when they pray because there keeping the blessing in the FUTURE TENSE.This is only hope and not faith which takes the blessing NOW!
CONFESSION is an affirmation of a bible truth we have embraced.Confession is simply believing with our hearts and repeating with our lips.Our confession includes:
1) All that Jesus's sacrifice provided
2) The whole of scripture.
3) All that Jesus's High Priesthood covers
4) The whole of God's revealed will.
We are to refuse to have anything to do with wrong confessions!
STEPS TO BUILD YOUR FAITH QUICKLY
1) Confess the Word in your heart FIRST.
2) Confess it out load in your room.
3) Say it until your spirit and your words agree.
4) Say it over and over again.
5) Say it until you whole being swings into harmony and into line with the Word of God.
Jesus brought true life to this world.The Greek translation to this type of life is ZOE.Zoe is translated "eternal Life" and the "Life of God".Eternal Life is the actual life of The Eternal One Himself.
All Things are possible for Zoe.When filled with Zoe you will be filled with divine love.Zoe received in sufficient measure produces:
1) Turns belief into knowledge.
2) It is the source of ALL divine graces.
3) It gives us Godly wisdom.
4) It overcomes the world,flesh and the devil.
5) It works in us what is well pleasing in Gods sight.
6) God becomes our life,peace,righteousness(right standing with God),our purity,our strength and health.
7) God becomes our preserver,zeal,faith,guide,teacher and satisfaction.
When Zoe inspires our prayers we can ask anything and we will receive it. (2 CORINTHIANS 4:11)
WHY SOME FAIL TO RECEIVE HEALING FROM CHRIST JESUS
1) INSUFFICIENT INSTRUCTION
You must know the Word before you can have faith for it to work.
2)LACK OF UNITED PRAYER
Your church must believe and act according to the living Word concerning healing.
3) COMMUNITY UNBELIEF (MARK 6:5-6)
Even Jesus could do nothing in his home town crib because of there unbelief.Stay around people that believe as you do!
4) THE TRADITIONS OF MEN
Follow the bible teaching only NOT what men think or teach if its not in line with the Word of God.
5) BREAKING NATURAL LAWS
Observe Gods rules for the natural health of our bodies.
6) UNBELIEF OF AN ELDER OR MINISTER
Beware if an elder or minister of your church doesn't believe the way the bible says too,the unbelief will stop your healing.
7) AN EVIL SPIRIT MUST BE CAST OUT
Some diseases are caused by an evil spirit and they must be cast out for healing to take place.
8) THE SICK PERSONS SIN
Unconfessed sin hinders people from receiving God's mercy.
9) LUKEWARMNESS OF THE CHURCH
Be hot for the Lord ,a so so ,straddle the fence attitude in believing God's Word will get you nothing!
10) UNWILLINGNESS TO SURRENDER TO GOD
You must follow god into the center of His will for you.
11) AN UNFORGIVING SPIRIT
Holding a grudge or unforgiven towards others.Forgive all unconditionally.
12) A NEED TO SEEK FORGIVENESS
If you have wronged anyone seek there forgiveness,make it right.
13) LACK OF DILIGENCE
Seek God for your healing like your time on earth is up tomorrow.
14) SEEKING MIRACLES NOT HEALING
Miracles take place in an instant.Healing takes place day by day until total healing is the end result.
15) WATCHING SYMPTOMS
You weaken your faith by watching your symptoms.
16) FAILURE TO ACT ON FAITH
Remember : Think faith,speak faith,act faith.
17) LACK OF CONFIDENCE
Hold the beginning of our confidence steady until the promise is fulfilled (HEBREWS 10:35
18) NOT RECEIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT
We can't keep the healer outside the body and expect him to heal it.He must be granted access to the inside of you.
19)LACK OF FAITH
Do not substitute you belief in the doctrine of divine healing for personal faith to be healed.
20) FAILURE TO RECEIVE GOD'S PROMISES
Don't fail to receive the written promises of God as His direct Word to you.(PSALM 138:2)
21) WAITING FOR HEALING TO BELIEVE
MARK 11:24 tell us the exact conditions God requires for our appropriation of the blessings He has promised.
22) FOCUSING ON IMPROVEMENT AND NOT ON GOD'S PROMISES
Understand that God wants to train every christian to believe Him when everything they can see, except His promise, is to the contrary.
2 CORINTHIANS 12:7-10
This scripture is penned by Paul the apostle that also penned two thirds of the New Testament.It relates to a "thorn in his side" as being a physical aliment as some believe.How could Paul teach healing with signs,miracles and wonders when he himself was sick?In the old and new testaments not one time does "thorn in the flesh" deal with a physical aliment but is used as an illustration only.The "thorn in Paul's side" that he talks about are actually Buffetings produced by satan.
Some of the buffetings this great man endured are these:
reproaches,necessities,persecutions,distresses,whippings,imprisonments,tumults,labors,fasting,dishonor,evil reports,deceivers,shipwreck,dangers in traveling in the country and cities,hunger,thirst,to name a few.
None of these had anything to do with sickness and disease ,You don't do mighty signs and wonders,teach about Christ Jesus,start churches,etc.,while you are diseased and sick! (ROMANS 15:18-19)
This is but a light overview of the book CHRIST THE HEALER by F.F. BOSWORTH
I highly recommend this book to all that teach divine healing or anybody that needs a divine touch on there bodies,especially those whom natural medicine has done all they can do.God's power is unlimited to those who can sell out and just believe God's Word.
