I Can Heal
Awesome. Imagine that! God will permit me, a nobody, to
heal MYSELF & to heal OTHERS.
Mind blowing. Charles & Frances Hunter have a web
site 15 hour video for you to watch, if you are serious about doing now what
Jesus did 2000 years ago. Prerequisite is that you have Jesus' water & Holy Spirit
That means that you have Jesus' Spirit inside you, in your heart, & that you have the Holy Spirit power to raise the dead, to heal cancer, to cast out demons, whatever needs to be done by God's power & for God's glory right now:
this year, this month, this week, this day, this minute...
The Bible doesn't tell us to pray for Jesus/God to heal, but for us to heal (in Jesus name) as He already did His work.
His work is finished...But, don't say, "I can heal." Rather say, "God can heal - (through me, through you, through us)."
Always, always, always give God the glory. Never try to steal God's glory, like Satan tried to do & still tries to do.
An employee never can/should steal the glory due his employer. Likewise, we will not be trustworthy if we try to steal HIS glory. Not one crumb. That is where Lucifer/Satan make his big monster mistake. Beware...
Charles Ndifon www.christlove.org teaches, as do many Christians, that God's Holy Spirit is alive living inside you & me using our flesh: hands/feet/brain to do His work: healing/wonders/deliverance.
Oral Roberts reminds us that it was NECESSARY for Jesus to depart so that God's Holy Spirit could come & indwell each human (a) by professing out loud that Jesus is the Son of God & (b) by asking God to spiritually baptize us.
John Lake,as quoted in John G Lake, the Complete collection of His Life
explains that salvation is triune: salvation of the spirit, salvation of the soul or mind + salvation of the body.
We are to have the Holy Spirit, the mind of Christ + bodies that are always disease free.
Lake encourages us to say, " In the name of Jesus Christ, I refuse to have this illness."
In the name of Jesus, I refuse to have this cancer. In the name of Jesus, I refuse to have this cold.
In the name of Jesus, I refuse to have this mental illness.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit helps us to obtain our goal. Wigglesworth, in Warner & Lee's The Essential Smith Wigglesworth, admonishes, "To be baptized in the Holy Ghost is to be in God's plan."

God wants us to be pregnant with His Holy Spirit & to reproduce His love,
mercy, healing & power in other lives.
He wants us to do like Jesus did. Heal the sick. Raise the dead. Love the unlovable.
Forgive. God is not dead. He is alive in us, if we will allow Him to be:
Hello God. Goodbye enemy of my soul.
Hello Jesus. Goodbye depression.
Hello Holy Spirit. Goodbye suicide.
Hello Heaven. Goodbye hell on earth.
Hello eternal life. Goodbye death of my soul.
Hello hope. Goodbye despair.
Hello health. Goodbye constant hospitalizations.
Hello sanity. Goodbye insanity.
COMMENTARY - Jesus says (according to scripture in Mark 11:24) that when we pray, if we believe,
then we shall receive, so let us believe, never doubting, until in time we will do receive the full healing of our hearts desire. Let us be reminded that our healing was obtained for us on the cross of Jesus 2000 years age.
It along with our salvation is in the atonement, ours for the taking, if only we believe. Believe.
The majority of us are like Peter, the apprentice of Jesus. Peter had the initial faith to step out of his boat & walk a few feet on top of the lake towards Jesus, but when he took his eyes off Jesus & onto the problems at hand, he sunk into the water & needed to be rescued. He was definitely in over his head. That was BEFORE he had the baptism of the Holy Spirit & BEFORE he took Jesus at His word without : looking back, being double minded, & relying on himself rather than relying on the power of God's spoken word. God does not fail.
It is our trust that fails. We humans have the bad habit of relying on our circumstances, on what we see, on what we experience, on what the doctor tells us, rather than relying on what God tells us in Scripture.
For many this is a deadly habit, where we go into the hospital & never come out. During the cold war between Democracy & Communism there was a saying, "I'd rather be dead than red (under communist control)."
Well, we already have 1 foot in an early grave, when we speak death. God created the world by speaking.
He continues to perform His word now, but only as we speak it, having 1st a clean conscience washed white by repenting of all sins & all omissions, + having a heart that pants after God.
We are never good enough, but God likes that, because then He can fill up our empty selves with Himself...
James Manning of Atlah World Ministries says that the disciples of Jesus did not need to wake Jesus up to quell the storm on the lake rocking their boat. They already had God's authority to speak to the storm themselves.
2nd, Manning says that Moses and many Jews of his generation did not reach the promised land because they did not believe & receive what God had already obtained for them. Well, such principles are foundational to obtaining what we have not yet obtained. Only there is a major flaw. They had God. They had Jesus. They did not have the Holy Spirit.
They did not have Pentecost. They were not anointed and commissioned Let me explain.
The Disciples in the boat on the lake had not yet had the Baptism of the Holy Spirit which Jesus gave to empower them in His physical absence. Holy Spirit is the 1 Who gives courage & the 1 Who makes things happen. We are impotent without God's Holy Spirit. 2nd, Moses had sinned 2 God forbade him to step onto the soil which he was allowed to see at a distance.
King David wanted to build a temple for God, but only his son Solomon was allowed to do this.
David was the apple of God's eye, yet sin some-times has its consequences. Unbelief is always sin.
God always looks at our heart, more-so than at our deeds. Daily confession
+ communion contribute to our spiritual health in the same way that daily vitamins & exercise contribute to physical health...
It is not God's responsibility to heal (from up high in heaven); rather it is our responsibility to lay hands on the sick to allow God's power to flow out to heal. We are God's hands. We are God's feet. God already healed us 2000 years ago, before we were born. Once we are God's children plus Christ's mate & sibling, we have legal access to the power of the Holy Spirit, with signs & wonders following. God wants ALL his sons & daughters to walk in His power. He wants ALL His sons and daughters to be clones of Jesus Christ, by means of the Holy Spirit. The 12 disciples & Paul are the best illustration of that.
They did what Jesus did on earth. Once we belong to the family of God, we are EXPECTED to act like children of God.
It is not God who needs to DO some-thing.
It is we who need to DO something. If something is NOT getting done on earth, it is not God's fault; rather, it is our fault.
If we have a disabled, hospitalized relative, it is NOT God's problem; it is our problem.
We have failed to avail ourselves of His power to act. The 12 disciples waited to obtain the baptism of the Holy Spirit...
Then they acted. They did not hound the rabbi to lay hands on the ill. They did not hound doctor Luke to cure the ill.
No, they took upon themselves the power & authority of God's Holy Spirit & did the work themselves.
Beware, it was not their power, nor their authority. It always is God's power & authority in us, by the means
of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside us. Mind of ours, wake up. We have had bad teaching. We have bad habits.
Let us wean ourselves off depending on others, wining, & pleading to God. God is WAITING on US to act.
We have been taught incorrectly...
We have been impotent. We have sinned. Let us go to the bank & write that check for our healing.
God's money has been earning interest for 2000 years. That money of course is symbolism for God's gifts to us, including healing, health, sanity, peace, joy, wisdom, and love. We are engaged to the Prince of the entire universe.
Our wealth in Him is more, more, more than we could ever desire. No, we are never able, but God in us is always able.
All the medical operations in the universe have been paid for by the body and blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, many, many, many years ago. In the 3rd heaven there are shelves & shelves of brand new body parts.
Let us avail ourselves of this treasure. Whatever is released in heaven is then released on earth.
Let us lay claim to our inheritance provided for us by the work of Christ 2000 years ago...
What if we fail to heal? Perhaps others need a spiritual tune up, but most likely it is we who need the spiritual tune up.
Some healings take time, like medicine takes time, 30 or more pills to a bottle. Usually, but not always, God requires an assistant, meaning he wants us rather than Him to do the work. If a healing does not "take" it may be for numerous reasons, including, it is not received. God handed us healing 2,000 years ago, but there are very few takers. Beware.
Asking is NOT receiving. If we ask our dad for a hand-out, but we fail to take the gift out of his hand, then who is at fault?
We need to learn to receive. If we pray or intercede for someone needing healing, he may not be healed if he fails to believe...
If the power source is turned on, it is of no use if the plug is not plugged in.
The recipient needs to plug himself into the power source (God) in order to receive.
Praying over someone. Being prayed over. Neither is sufficient. If God's power is available and comes down like rain into the reservoir or water tank, the sick person needs to receive, to turn on that faucet & drink that water.
Even if the intercessor is full of Holy Spirit power, it seldom does much good without the connection being turned on by the end user. Batteries have a + & a - charge. Both + & - ends need to be connected for the flow of electricity.
1st the recipient needs to be taught/reminded of what God has already done for them. We need to appropriate.
We need to STOP begging & to begin THANKING. We need to get rid of our orphan, invalid mentality.
Let us stop our stinking any thinking which offends God & those around us...
Remember. We may be God's instrument with all the right words, to the right person, but at the wrong time.
It takes the Holy Spirit to open up the spirit, even if the mind is open.
It takes much prayer/fasting/spiritual warfare to accomplish what God wants. Many a pastor cannot heal.
Most have head knowledge, but not heart knowledge. Keep chasing God until He catches you...
Another cause for failure to obtain a healing is that we/another may not need healing, but rather deliverance.
There may be a spiritual block; we/they may need to forgive someone.
Be reminded; victors are those victims who do not quit, especially those who do not give up on God, do not quit expecting blessings, & do expect God to honor His word.
Regarding our own personal healings or our personal ministry, we need to repent of any pride, where we would covet or steal from God His glory & congratulations... What if I do NOT have the gift of healing? No problem.
We do have the Healer. He and not us does the healing. Always. We always have Him. Maybe we do not have "the gift of healing". Maybe we do not have "the anointing to heal". Nonetheless, we always have the Healer, Jesus Christ. Sometimes God lays a burden on us, say for blindness. 1 missionary Heidi Baker www.irismin.org prayed an entire year for all the blind people she saw. Nobody got healed. Then all of a sudden the blind began to see... God wants obedience & trust, in Him.
He wants to make sure we do not get cocky/proud/arrogant/ self-sufficient. Let us not get discouraged and then quit, thinking that He has passed us by. A most serious problem/block to one's healing ministry is always us/me/myself/I.
It is our goal to allow God to perfect & use us. Wrong. We want to become/develop into being sufficient/adequate to the task. Wrong again.
When we come to the end of our rope, God is tied to the other end. It is He and not we. He fills up an empty/insufficient pot. We do not need to be sufficient. We do need to be available. We do need to be empty of self.
Otherwise we would covet His praise & glory. We would be too needy trying to be adequate.
When we become a zero, then He can begin to be a hero. We can never become sufficient enough to obtain or to impart salvation or healing or deliverance. Jesus did it all on the cross - 2,000 years ago.
Fear, blame, inadequacy, shame and other deterrents will always intimidate us when we rely on self to heal, or self to obey His commission. However, when we want Him to get ALL the fame & we look at WHO is doing the healing, certainly NOT us, then we can better obey. Of course we will fail, when we rely on self...
Additionally, we cannot operate on empty. We need to be full of Holy Spirit oil. We, like a car, cannot run on empty.
We need to gas up each day with Him. Like Moses' manna in the desert, Holy Spirit oil needs to be fresh squeezed each day. Intimacy with the Trinity fills us up. Consider how a mate fills us up & leaves us glowing with contentment.
So too, Moses glowed after fellowshipping with the Lord. Exodus 34:29
We can be His fireflies, reflecting HIS glory! Let us not be on empty when the Lord needs to use us or when He comes to take His bride at the end of time. Matthew 25. How many loved ones have suffered & died because we do not reflect enough of His glory, because we do not have enough of His oil, because there is too much of self & too little of Him, & because there is not enough daily intimacy with Him?
Additionally let us not rejoice when we heal, nor be discouraged when we are rejected. Healing is NOT about us, but about God, about Jesus, about the Holy Spirit. Healing is Their work, problem, responsibility & Glory.
John G Lake says that our blank check is not worth 10 cents, unless we believe God, but if we believe God & fill in that check, then our healing will come to pass though the power of Jesus Christ on the earth today.
(See John G Lake, the Complete Collection of His Life Teachings by Roberts Liardon www.robertsliardon.org
chapter The Spirit of God)...
COMMENTARY - Lake reminds us that Christ ministered through His body & now we are His hands & feet; we are priests unto God for the healing of mankind in our generation. Each person on earth has the potential of being filled up with the Spirit of God for the purpose of healing. Even if we are not yet mature enough to administer Christ's healing, each of us is mature enough to believe for ourselves or for others to receive God's healing. All it takes is enough faith to fill a seed.
Jesus says in Matthew 17:20, " If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, say to this mountain, ' Move to yonder place' & it shall move. Nothing shall be impossible to you."
Again in Like 17:6 Jesus says, "If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you would say to this sycamore tree, 'Be plucked up the the root, & be planted in the sea.'; and it would obey you." Each generation has this opportunity & this challenge. Jesus Christ is special, but so are we, because God wants many sons & daughters to be filled with His Holy Spirit & to operate in the same power that Jesus demonstrated. Are you willing to allow God to use you the same way He used Christ?
Jesus says in John 14-15. "He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; & greater works than these shall he do; because I go to My Father.
Whatsoever you shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, keep My commandments."
In John 15:5-7 Jesus says, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in Me and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing...If you abide in Me & My words abide in you, you shall ask what you will & it shall be done." In John 16: 23-24 Jesus says, "Verily, verily, I say to you, whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, & you shall receive, that your joy may be made full." In Mark16:17-18 Jesus says, "These signs shall follow them that believe; in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents & if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, & they shall recover"...
John G Lake says that most people are waiting on God to act, but in reality God is waiting on us to act, because as Holy Spirit filled people we have God's resources to act on God's behalf. Lake uses the illustration of Moses.
Moses prayed to God to rescue him at the Red Sea. God responded & told Moses to act.
Moses obeyed & the Red Sea opened. Moses' mouth. God's power...
Lake tells a story of a most holy man & his likewise holy children. The dad became violently ill & bedridden & nothing worked, including medicine or prayer. Lake prayed for this gentleman for 16 straight hours without result.
Finally the Holy Spirit reminded Lake of the scripture "Himself took our infirmities".
Lake grabbed hold of the feet of that elderly man & the Holy Spirit raised that senior citizen from his deathbed.
Never, never quit. We need to get over the fast food quick fix mentality. However, you need 2-3 gathered together, agreeing in prayer, believing. Both the gentlemen + his children "believed" with Lake for God to act.
Note that Lake grabbed hold of the feet. Lake touched the man. Often God uses His touch to transmit His healing power. God used His Holy Spirit in Jesus to touch human beings. Often untouched children or animals will die, whereas touched & loved children/animals will survive in the same circumstances...
Warner & Lee in the Essential Smith Wigglesworth share a story of touch.
During preaching, Wigglesworth fell off the stage & into the isle, landing on his feet & stabilizing himself on the shoulder of a man in the congregation, who announced that he was healed at the moment Wigglesworth touched him.
As human beings we need to be touched spiritually, physically, intellectually & emotionally.
Mental illness & many incurable diseases create isolation, so it is extra extra important to join a church & to fellowship with other believers, where you can pray & mature in character together. No man is an island unto himself.
We are God's hands, feet, eyes, mouth, ears, etc. Together we make up the body of Christ.
It is not us, but the Holy Spirit who is the breath of God. We need each other. We need God.
Then God can use us as a team, the same way one would operate a ball game, as a team.
We will be safe, loved & also useful. That is definitely a miracle for those who are mentally ill in this generation...
Did God heal Jesus the crucified one? Yes He did, but not when His disciples wanted or expected.
God the Father performed a miracle, after the fact, after He was dead, but nonetheless, Jesus was healed, but in God's time. God allowed Jesus to suffer, to be taken advantage of, to be abused, to feel abandonment.
Was God a good Father to Jesus? Yes He was. God is always fair & just, only it often takes hindsight to understand God's pruning & fertilizing of our character. If we allow evil in our lives due to ignorance & deception, due to inheritance, or due to God's permission as was the case with Job in the old testament, then let us confess our sins & shortcomings to God & wait for Him to rescue & restore us.
While we are waiting let us do 1 good thing each day to another who is hurting. Each day let us say thank you to God for little things like seeing a sunset, hearing the birds, walking without assistance, $ smelling flowers
Reinhard Bonnke in Evangelism by Fire
reiterates that God is waiting on us to act. God did his act 2,000 years
ago through His son Jesus Christ, our example. When we become sons and
daughters of God, He equips us with His Holy Spirit, the same way He equipped
Moses, Enoch, Elijah, and the apostles. Elijah gave his magic mantle to Elisha.
Jesus gave His mantle to His apostles. In 1961 George Jeffreys gave his mantle to Bonnke.
The same Holy Spirit is now our inheritance, once we are baptized by Jesus Christ, himself...
Christians, the tomb is empty. The corpse is alive in well on His throne in heaven.
The only one that is still dead is the modern day, impotent, head in the sand, church.
Wake up, Dry Bones; revive & rescue our mentally ill loved ones. Mentally ill, this illness is NOT God's wish for you.
Rise up in the power of the risen Lord Jesus & redeem the years the locus have eaten. www.fullflame.com + www.cfan.org
God spoke to Bonnke and said, "My words in your mouth perform as well as My words in My mouth."
What awesome implications this has for us who take God as our father, Jesus as our savior & the Holy Spirit as our performer of the Word of God on earth. Let us believe and speak aloud only positive words.
Let us zip our lips to negative thoughts & put them under the blood & feet of Jesus.
Genesis 32:28 KJV - "As a prince have you power with God & with men, & have prevailed."
Rutz, James - Mega Shift -
www.megashift.org - admonishes us to use
it or lose it. That would apply to our arm or brain muscles, as well as
our spiritual muscles. If we have all spiritual knowledge, but are waiting
on God to show up, then we have missed the boat. God is waiting on us to
walk on water, so that He can rescue us.
If we have received all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but never use them, then we have no fruit. It is the fruit that counts in heaven, not the gifts. In the name of Jesus Christ, Father God, let us not go ahead of You, nor behind You, but hand in hand with You. Let us both hear & obey your voice. In chapter 3 the Chinese prayed for many terminally patients, many times. Eventually, most of them were cured. Persistence. Faithfulness.
Wigglesworth (in The Essential Smith Wigglesworth
a book by Warner & Lee) admonishes us that we will miss a great deal if we do
not begin to act in the name of Jesus. Wigglesworth encourages us to just
begin to bind & cast out devils in the "name of Jesus" so that many people will
become loosed of their infirmities.
3rd, he reminds us to seek the notoriety for Jesus & not for ourselves & thus lose God's blessing not only for ourselves but also for others. He goes on to say that there is nothing stopping the flow of God except the believer's failure to believe & to act.
Let us repent, take courage & act in the name of Jesus. Wigglesworth encourages us to copy him or to copy Jesus, to lay hands on the ill, & to command, "Come out of him, in the name of Jesus." Wigglesworth wants us to exercise our spiritual muscles & notes that "we are made in hard places; at wit's end corner, with no way out. A man is made in adversity"...
Chapter 19 Greater Works Shall We Do quotes Wigglesworth: "Many of you know as far back as 12-14 years ago, how we used to gather with small companies of people, & divine healing was a small thing in those days, but as we lived & moved among the people they were healed & they are healed today...All over the world I tell the people that since the Lord healed me over 30 years ago, I don't know what it is to have a body. Hallelujah. It is redemption in all its fullness, no neuralgia, no stomach trouble, no kidney disease, no dyspepsia, no rheumatism. Hallelujah. No lumbago, no corns, absolutely & entirely a new order of things. This is the inheritance of all that seek Him; this is the inheritance there is in Jesus...
Listen to His word today: 'Verily, verily,
I say to you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; & greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father (John 14:12)' Oh, glory to God. Sometimes we fail, but God never does...
The moment you believe you are "mantled" with a new power to lay hold of possibility & make it reality."
Like Elijah. "Unbelief is sin...This is the work of God that you believe."
Chapter 24 Being Hid with Christ in God Wigglesworth says. "Every ailment is of satanic origin"...
Ever Increasing Faith by Smith Wigglesworth admonishes us to be walking letters of His Word, to dare to act in God, & to dare to believe, for when we know God's spiritual truths & do not act, it grieves the Holy Spirit.
Wigglesworth feels that many potential spiritual heroes have become zeroes, due to inaction.
Besides, it is not us, but the Holy Spirit in us. Let us, let the genie out of the bottle.
Philippians 3:13-14 reminds us to forget "those things which are behind & reach(ing) forth to those things which are before.
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus"...
God told Demos Shakarian (as reported by John and Elizabeth
Sherrill in The Happiest People on Earth) that we spirit filled
humans should never doubt His power & that His power is the birthright of
We need only accept God's power. Second, God told Demos that He wants all His church to do this work of healing. Revolutionary. Awesome. Beautiful. Demos notes that Pastor Prince became known for his insistence (a) that not clergy, theologians, nor preachers, but men & women with ordinary jobs in the ordinary world will be God's most important channel & (b) that healings like the ones recorded in the Bible are meant to be part of the normal experience of the church in every age.
Pastor Prince founded his beliefs on the Bible & his experience with evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson.
Sometimes when the healing presence of the Lord would arrive, both Demos & Charles would notice it by the weight & warmth of God as though a heavy blanket were settling over their shoulders.
Charismatic Catholics will appreciate Father DeGrandis'
statement, "We have the gifts of charisms of healing & miracles...Miracles...we
find in 1 Cor. 12, as 1 of the charismatic gifts given to many of the faithful.
The whole healing ministry is rooted in the Document on the Laity, Chapter 1, Section 3, where it says:
'These gifts are given to the laity for the building of the Body of Christ.
They must be allowed the freedom to practice them & should be practiced in harmony with their brothers, their pastors.' Ideally the pastors, priests, are supposed to discern these charisms of the laity." www.sign.org/article.phtml?idnum-116
Father John Hampsch in Healing Your Family Tree recommends the following deliverance prayer, to be best used during Eucharist: "Dear Heavenly Father, we praise & glorify Your for Your love & mercy...Reveal all hidden sins-both our own & those from former generations. We now take authority in the name of Jesus Christ over all familial (family) spirits, all generational bondage, all hereditary defects, genetic or of blood, or wrong inclinations that may have been transmitted to us...
We rebuke all sin & the forces of evil... In the holy name of your son, Jesus Christ, we take authority over all familial spirits & bondage, & their manifestations within our lives.
By that same power of Jesus, we break the power of evil from ourselves & our families and destroy what otherwise might be transmitted to our descendants....Thank you, Lord, for total healing & deliverance, in Jesus' precious name. Amen." www.claretiantapeministry.org Father has a genogram he uses & recommends others to use in prayer for family members.
It is a family tree or diagram of family illnesses & sins rather than the traditional genealogy most people are familiar with...
There is a difference between instant or progressive healing & a miracle.
Many healings take time, as does it take time for a seed to grown into a flower or a stalk of corn or a tree.
Miracles are those healings that are instantaneous, but also magic in that the disease is/was incurable to modern day medicine.
Everything & everybody failed, except God, for those that believe. That is the key.
Miracles & healings are usually only for those who believe. That is why so many people fail to receive.
The church is contaminated with denial of God's availability in our daily lives, trying to earn one's way into heaven or purgatory, & doubt about the willingness of God to heal & help...
As a postscript, you might be interested in a unique chapter #12 How I Experience a Healing Service by Father Ralph A DiOrio (with Donald Gropman) in The Man Beneath the Gift (The Story of My Life). This is a glimpse into the personal interaction of Father DiOrio and the Holy Spirit during a healing service. It is unique to him. Every life experience is individual. However, it gives us a taste of what it is like to be the person through whom the Holy Spirit operates. Blessings to you.
What do I say TO God?
Here are some tested illustrations:
Father John H Hampsch
- Healing Your Family Tree -
"Heavenly Father, I come before You as Your child, in great need of Your help.
I have physical health needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs, & interpersonal needs.
Many of my problems have been caused by my own failures, neglect & sinfulness, for which I humbly beg Your forgiveness, Lord. But I also ask You to forgive the sins of my ancestors whose failures have left their effects on me in the form of unwanted tendencies, behavior patterns & defects in body, mind an spirit. Heal me, Lord, of all these disorders.
With Your help I sincerely forgive everyone, especially living or dead members of my family tree, who have directly offended me or my loved ones in any way, or those whose sins have resulted in our present sufferings & disorders.
In the name of Your divine Son, Jesus, & in the power of His Holy Spirit, I ask You, Father, to deliver me & my entire family tree from the influence of evil one. Free all living and dead members of my family tree, including those in adoptive relationships, & those in extended family relationships, from every contaminating form of bondage.
By Your loving concern for us, heavenly Father, & by the shed blood of Your precious Son, Jesus, I beg You to extend Your blessing to me & all my living & deceased relatives. Heal every negative effect transmitter through all past generations, & prevent such negative effects in future generations of my family tree.
I symbolically place the cross of Jesus over the head of each person in my family tree, & between each generation;
I ask You to let the cleansing blood of Jesus purify the blood lines in my family lineage.
Set Your protective angels to encamp around us, & permit Archangel Raphael, the patron of healing, to administer Your divine healing power to all of us, even in areas of genetic disability.
Give special power to our family members' guardian angels to heal, protect, guide & encourage each of us in all our needs.
Let Your healing power be released at this very moment, & let it continue as long as Your sovereignty permits.
In our family tree, Lord, replace all bondage with a holy bonding in family love. Let there be an ever deeper bonding with You, Lord, by the Holy Spirit, to Your Son, Jesus. Let the family of the Holy Trinity pervade our family with its tender, warm, loving presence, so that our family may recognize & manifest that love in all our relation-ships.
All of our unknown needs we include with this petition that we pray in Jesus' precious Name. Amen."
Johnson, Bill - When Heaven Invades Earth, A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles
www.ibethel.org - firstname.lastname@example.org - Redding, California, USA :
"Father (God), this was Your idea (on how to pray). You commanded us to pray for things to be here as they are in heaven, & I know there is no ________________there (in heaven), so there shouldn't be any here.
So I command in the name of Jesus for the nerve endings to come to life.
I command full restoration of ______________in this body."
"You don't exist in heaven; your are not to exist here. This is my town. You are here illegally.
I forbid you to establish roots here. God has declared that wherever the soles of my feet tread, God has given to me.
I bind you to the word of God that declares that I have authority over you. Be gone."
Meyers, Joyce reminds us to always quote/stand
on relevant scripture, in addition to whatever else we pray/say/do.
Jesus, the Word of God, is always our foundation/compass. His Holy Spirit is needed to make that Word come alive & be experienced. When Jesus was baptized by the Holy Spirit is when His ministry started.
Ministry is teamwork where a live willing body makes itself available to be filled with & used by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was the human part & Christ was the Holy Spirit part, according to some teachers.
Reading the Word of God is insufficient. We need to SPEAK it + we need to ACT on it.
For instance, if one wants to be a missionary, he needs to have/procure a passport.
Wright, Henry - A More Excellent Way - www.pleasantvalleychurch.org - "I command inherited genetics to be changed back to the way they were suppose to be from the foundation of the world, in the name of Jesus."
"I command all genetic impurity to be reversed, in the name of Jesus."
1st Samuel 17:45 - David said to
the Philistine, "You come against me with sword, spear & javelin, but I come against you
in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom
you have defied.
This day the Lord will hand you over to me."
(The Philistine was a giant. Our giants are Satan, disease & other enemies.) Sometimes we can substitute our own names & situations as we read scripture, if that is how the Holy Spirit leads us:
Exodus 3:11-12 KJV Moses (I, myself say) said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh (the mental hospital/the mentally ill/the doctors), that I should bring forth the children of Israel (captives/those labeled insane/crazy) out of Egypt (captivity)? He replied, "Certainly I will be with you...I have sent you."
WARNING - A popular saying is, "Use it or lose it."
That certainly applies to the Holy Spirit.
He will leave & go elsewhere, if He is not welcome in our house.
At conception a fetus constantly divides as it grows & matures. So it is with the Holy Spirit...
We need to share salvation, healings, miracles, etc with others to bless them; lest the trees cry out; lest the expanding Spirit in our balloon burst & go elsewhere. There are many old timers who insist on a daily bowel movement to keep them healthy. They will do whatever it takes to make this happen. Well, the Christian will become constipated, full of foul gas, if he refuses the share the joy/wisdom/insights/blessings that God has revealed to/bestowed upon himself.
A Christian who hoards Christ, will find that he himself has become a bag of dead bones/a corpse...
Additionally, do not be floored with current or past heroes who walk in power.
The majority of ministries have many intercessors who fast & pray 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This means that the hero is not so much a hero as much as he/she is a wall plug allowing Holy Spirit power to flow through the intercession/ praise/wires from the battery/generator of God to the people, in the same way that a light bulb is illuminated when the switch is turned on.
The floodlight may be on the queen bee, but it is the worker bees who produce/provide/feed the queen her royal jelly.
In fact, the queen bee is an ordinary bee who has become obese on the royal jelly. Our royal jelly is the Word of God, our believing the Word of God & our ACTING on the Word of God. The Word of God became flesh & dwelt among us.
His name is Jesus Christ. Likewise, the Word of God must become alive in our flesh.
His name is Beth/Bob/ME/MYSELF/I/_______ . The invisible Holy Spirit will become visible in each of us as we plug into God daily & allow Him to express Himself in our hearts, speech & hands.
"Royal jelly, also known as gelee royale & RJ, is the milky-white gelatinous substance secreted from the cephalic glands of nurse worker bees (Apis mellifera) for apparently the sole purpose of stimulating the growth & development of the queen bee.
Without royal jelly, the queen bee would be no different from the worker bees & would live about as long (7-8 weeks). With royal jelly, the queen bee can live 5-7 years." (The fountain of youth.) http://www.pdrhealth.com/drug_info/nmdrugprofiles/nutsupdrugs/roy_0229.shtml
What do I say TO DNA TO Circumstances?
Here are some tested illustrations:
Isaiah 61:1-2 NIV - "The Spirit of the sovereign Lord in on Me, because the Lord (God) has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives & release from darkness for the prisoners."
Mark 3:14-15 KJV - He ordained
12 that they should be with Him & that He might send them forth to preach, to
have power to heal sicknesses, & to cast out devils.
Mark 6:7,12-13 - Calling the 12 to Him, He (Jesus) sent them out 2x2 & gave them authority over evil spirits...
They went out & preached that men should repent.
They cast out many devils, anointed with oil many that were sick, & healed them.
Mark 16:17-18 NIV - "These signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons. They will speak in new tongues. They will pick up snakes with their hands.
When they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all. They will place their hands on sick people, & they will get well."
Luke 4:17-18 KJV - There was delivered to Him the book of
the prophet Isaiah. (see Isaiah 61:1-3)
He found the place where it was written, "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 preach deliverance to the captives & recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are bruised."
Luke 9:1 NIV - When Jesus had called the 12 together, He gave them power & authority to drive out all demons & to cure diseases. He sent them out to preach the kingdom of God & to heal the sick.
Luke 10 1,2,9 - After this, the Lord appointed 70 others & sent them 2 x 2 ahead of Him to every town & place where He was about to go. He told them... "Heal the sick who are there & tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.'"
Luke 10:17-20 - The 70 returned with joy & said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name."
He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes & scorpions & to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
However, do not rejoice that the (evil) spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
Luke 11:9 - Ask & it will be given to you.
Luke 11:20 KJV - "With the finger (power & authority) of God cast out devils."
Luke 16:16 NIV - The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John (the Baptist).
Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached & everyone is (violently) forcing his way into it (due to enemy resistance of Satan & his kingdom).
Luke 24:49 - I (Jesus) am going to send you what My Father (God) has promised;
but stay in the city until you have been clothed with (Holy Spirit) power from on high.
(Spiritual insight: I + God operate well with the baptism of water, but best with the baptism of the Holy Spirit.)
John 1:23 KJV - "I
(John a)m only a
(mouth/tongue/container for HIS) voice
(words) crying in the wilderness."
John 3:30 KJV - "He must increase; I (John) must decrease."
John 5:05 NKJV - "Without Me you can do nothing."
John 5:19 NKJV - "I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner."
John 5:30 NKJV - "I can of Myself do nothing...because, I do not seek My own will, but the will of the Father Who sent Me."
John 8:28 NKJV - "I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things."
John 12:44 KJV - Jesus cried & said,
John 12:49 KJV - "I have not spoken of Myself. The Father Who sent Me gave me a commandment (as to) what I should say & what I should speak." (Spiritual insight: Likewise, we are NOT to minister to others on our own, but always only under the umbrella of Jesus' Holy Spirit Who is our mentor, power, anointing, & counselor.)
John 14:9-10,12-14 - 9Jesus answered..."He that has seen Me has seen the Father...
10What I am telling you, I am not saying on My own initiative; the Father living in Me is doing His own works...
12I tell you the truth, anyone who (believes) has faith in Me will do what I have been doing.
He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
13I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
14You may ask Me for anything in My name, & I will do it."
John 15:5 - "I am the vine. You are the branches.
He (who abides in Me & I in him) brings forth much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
John 20:21 KJV - "Peace be to you. As My Father has sent Me, so I send you." When He has said this, He breathed on them & said, "Receive the Holy Ghost (Spirit). Whosoever sins you remit (forgive/remove), they are remitted. Whosoever sins you you retain, they are retained." (Spiritual insight: Sometimes the heart is not right with God or the root problem has not been exposed & removed.)
Acts 1:8 - (Jesus said,) "...you will receive power (to heal) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; & you will be My witnesses...
Acts 3:12,16 NIV - 12"Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk...
16By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see & know was made strong.
It is Jesus' name & the faith that comes through Him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see."
Acts 4:21 KJV - All men glorified God (not the pastor/priest/person) for that which was done.
Act 8:14-17 - When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the Word of God, they sent Peter & John to them. When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them; they had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter & John placed their hands on them, & they received the Holy Spirit.
(Spiritual insight: Baptism of water for forgiveness of sins + Baptism of Holy Spirit for power over evil.)
(Spiritual insight: It is the Holy Spirit that heals others through us, so we need to receive the Holy Spirit.)
Romans 11:19 - The gifts & callings of God are without repentance (recall/"being an Indian giver").
2nd Corinthians 6:16 NIV - We are the
temple (sanctuary) of the living God.
2nd Corinthians 6:16 KJVer - As God has said, "I will dwell in them & walk in them; I will be their God, & they will be My people." (Leviticus 26:12, Jeremiah 32:38, Ezekiel 37:27)
Ephesians 1:3 KJV - Blessed be the G-d & Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with
all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
(Spiritual insight: We already have the blessings which need to be released on earth.)
1st Thessalonians 5:23 - I pray God, your whole spirit, soul & body be preserved blameless (not having sin/disease/sickness/deformity/defect/insanity) unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1st John 5:14-15 NJKV - Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. If we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Revelation 12:10 NIV -Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say, "Now have come the salvation, power, kingdom of our God, & authority of His Christ; for the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day & night, has been hurdled down." (Spiritual insight: We have been given the power of attorney for Christ to act in His behalf, even over the accuser.)
COMMENTARY: We are NOT stating a "name it & claim it"
protocol based on "me, myself & I", but on the power of God &
in the time of God, to honor His word. It is always God the Father,
Jesus the son & the Holy Spirit who ALWAYS do the healing, but in
us & through us, in each generation. They, not us, must ALWAYS get the
glory, the praise, the honor & the adoration. 2nd, healing or deliverance should
always be free, per the Vatican council. No individual should personally
benefit from serving another.
This is God's work, not ours; God's power, not ours. The windmill should not get the credit for making electricity. It is the wind that is the power. The watermill should not get the credit for making energy. It is the water that is the source of the power. Likewise, we are only the light in the light bulb plugged into God, our power source...
Do we fail to raise the dead & heal the lepers? Of course, because self reliance is of NO avail, even in the name of Jesus, because it is the He in me that gets the job done. Once we are dead to self, then He can become alive in & through us. Fabulous. What we could never do in His name, He can & will do, using us & His Holy Spirit power. Awesome. Thanks be to God. Glory to Jehovah God. Praise His Holy Name...
In addition, there is a special ministry of healing, which only God commissions & has ordained before we were born. This is not God's sovereign healing through us from time to time, but the full time appointment of individuals to careers in the healing ministry. However, those (perhaps in their retirement years or in generations, cities & nations where the Holy Spirit is empowering & overwhelming His children) available to Him, He will grow up in Him & gift like a Moses, Noah, Elijah, Abraham, & Paul to disciple & mentor others whose ears & hearts are ready to receive Him.
If we are living in the last generation, then a greater portion of the Holy Spirit is available to each of us, to ready the nations for His 2nd & final coming.
1st Corinthians 12:29-31 KJV Are all apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles?
Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? Covert earnestly the best gifts.
I show you a more excellent way.
COMMENTARY: Why is God sometimes so slow to heal when we
do & say all
the "right things"?
Sometimes we can stand in faith with the power of attorney on behalf of another individual. Sometimes God requires the ill individual to step up to the plate with his own faith. A simplistic example is an alcoholic who needs to address the root issues of the illness as well as the character issues, lest he fall back into sin. If I am the alcoholic, then I need to work on my own character issues & root causes with the help of the Lord + dedicated friends & family. There is "much" to learn of spiritual things. Healing is not a quick fix but a lover's walk with our future mate, Christ. Healing can be fixing a broken body part, creating a new body part (miracle), or delivering one from evil spirits. Sometimes we demand a chemical brain imbalance correction when in fact we may need the eviction of evil spirits. Perhaps the ill individual has not been anointed with oil by church elders? Perhaps the ill one has not been baptized in water for the forgiveness of sins? Perhaps the ill individual person has not been baptized in the Holy Spirit? Sometimes it makes NO difference our approach, because God is the foreman, but sometimes a wrench will not do the job of a screwdriver. We need to be tutored by the Holy Spirit.
Sometimes we students have to repeat our lessons until we get it right. It could be a simple issue of attitude rather than method. God always looks at the heart & never the college degrees (knowledge), but most of all He looks for FAITH in JESUS CHRIST to act, never doubting, never double minded.
Acts 19:13-17 NIV - Some Jews who went around driving out EVIL
SPIRITS tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were
demon-possessed (demonized). They would say, "In the name of Jesus, whom
Paul preaches, I command you to come out." 7 sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief
priest, were doing this.
1 day the EVIL SPIRIT answered them, "Jesus I know, & I know about Paul, but who are you?"
Then the man who had the EVIL SPIRIT jumped on & overpowered them all.
Derek Prince reminds us that the "right formula" is NOT what it takes to be delivered. It takes the Holy Spirit to be & stay delivered. No substitutes. If the Holy Spirit does not already live in our heart or if He does not immediately move into our heart after the evil spirit(s) has vacated, then there is a good chance the enemy will return with many roommates.
Matthew 12:43-45 NIV - "When an EVIL SPIRIT comes out of a man, it goes through & places seeking rest & does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean & put in order. Then it goes & takes with it 7 other spirits more wicked than itself.
They go in & live here. The final condition of that man is worse than the 1st."
Derek Prince in They Shall Expel Demons has some ground rules for praying for "deliverance" for others:
(1) be under authority, (2) minister at least in pairs (Jesus sent his disciples out in pairs.), (3) never minister alone to the opposite sex, (4) rely on the atonement of Christ & not on our authority, (5) never charge for your work, & (6) speak the word of God to the enemy. Better still, read this book, for 1, before ever attempting "deliverance" on behalf of another. - www.derekprince.com
1st Timothy 5:22 NIV Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands.
Reinhard Bonnke in Mighty Manifestations: The
Power of the Holy Spirit cautions the self made healers NOT to expect power:
due to attending sermons, lectures, schools, due to pride, or due to
Rather we can expect God Himself to act when there is compassion, empathy, crisis & a heart cry of desperation. Bonnke contends that healing will not be the result of what we think or say, but what is in our heart, for God looks at the heart & not at our techniques...
When you have prayed over 11 people who subsequently were not healed, do not quit. #1, we need to learn that it is NOT us who is the healer, but God. #2, many people go a long time "practicing as an apprentice" before they get their wings. As you study renown healers, you will discover that many had the same dilemma, but the same hope. Their secret is that they did not quit...
The old testament of the Bible story of Moses & Joshua is an illustration of the spiritual journey that the most of us need to travel. God promised to Moses the nation of Israel. Moses saw that land just before his death.
It was Joshua who claimed that land. God did not drop it into his lap. The land belonged to other nations. Joshua had to go to war to accomplish God's will. In life, the real enemy Satan. God did not pluck the Hebrews out of Egypt by translocation & plop them elsewhere. The slaves were chased out of town. Then they had to plod through the desert sand of life's tribulations for 40 years, due to UNBELIEF. That entire generation of adults died in their UNBELIEF, including Moses. It was the descendants who went to war to claim God's "will".
The children were the "beneficiaries", due to the parents' UNBELIEF. Most of us do not get instantaneous miracle healings. Most of us have to fight a bloody war to lay claim to God's will. Nonetheless, let us not grow faint hearted & loose out, as did the parents of those children, who took up the assignment of God that their parents had dropped. The children laid claim to what God had promised. They did receive God's best.
The nation of Israel was born. It was from Israel that Christ was born, died & resurrected.
Benny Hinn talks of God's known will & His
secret will. Many Jews were annihilated during world war 2 in what we now
call the holocaust. The Jews were not healed. Instead, they were
killed. We all know that martyrs are the elect of God, if they die for Him.
Perhaps martyrdom was part of His secret or permissive will for them.
We all know that the true enemy at that time was Satan. Hitler was only his instrument.
These Jews, for a large part, did not know nor acknowledge Jesus, the front door to God.
Many in all likelihood did not cry out to Jesus to help & heal them...
Let us not be overcome with bitterness, defeat, discouragement & lack of courage.
Let us not lose any prize, which Christ has for us, whether it be healing, martyrdom, or keys to a city.
If we have every-thing we want, but do not have Jesus as our Lord, Savior, Baptizer, Lover, then we have lost the game of life. Remember, what God sees is our heart. What goes to heaven is our heart, not the organ in our body, but the invisible part of us that loves & is attached to God like an umbilical cord...
Benny Hinn interviewed Oral Roberts on TV (5/19/2005 USA East Coast airing). Oral (who, like Benny, has a healing ministry) reminded us that all born again Christians can pray for healings and miracles, but that the "gift of the healing ministry" usually is for some rather than many (perhaps because of our own unreadiness).
With himself, the Holy Spirit comes and goes. It is the Holy Spirit that makes him aware that a healing is happening or will occur. At that point of confidence he knows for certain that the healing is a done deal.
He believes that daily praying in tongues is imperative for the working of the Holy Spirit.
However, he also believes that the gift of tongues is separate (such as for use in public). Oral says the Holy Spirit knocks self out of the way. Then God is free to do His work. We must NEVER take His credit.
Bevington, Guy C -
Remarkable Miracles -
Chapter 5 Important Truths states that "It is not our
business to save people. It is our business to lead them to Christ...So it
is also not our business to heal people; but it may & should be our
business to lead them to Jesus Who has promised to heal them. Divine
We cannot avoid it without detriment to our spiritual development....Divine healing in its deepest, truest sense is a life of utter abandonment to God & an incessant dependence upon Him...in the most trying places."

Bolz, Shawn - Keys to Heaven's Economy -
Subtitle: An Angelic Visitation from the Minister of Finance of the Kingdom of heaven -
Chapter 2 Discovering My Inheritance shares that there are spiritual abandoned/ unfulfilled inheritances/assignments/mantles/commissions/legacies/anointings/consecrations/impartations, available to be picked up by us. Bolz reminds us that Martin Luther changed the entire world in 1 generation by helping to make the Bible available to the public. Bolz agrees with Mike Bickle, founder of International House of Prayer, who contends that it is our opportunity & God's desire that we change/bless the world now for Him in this generation.
Chapter 6 The Economy of Heaven shares that those who partner with God can call forth from heaven's warehouse both earthly material (money/buildings) & physical (eyes/legs) gifts to accomplish His will on earth. Bolz cites Iris Ministries and Global Children's Ministries as receiving some of these heavenly gifts (food & clothing), because of their bold demand on Heaven's response. One needs to pray in agreement with what is available in Heaven. Receiving faith is a place in God's heart where one needs to be; a place where angels do not access.
NEVER NEVER FORGET: Always pray IN THE NAME OF JESUS, for healing is by His power, not ours.

Bonnke, Reinhard - Holy Spirit - www.cfan.org
"God can sometimes bring healing through people who do NOT exercise a regular (healing) service (ministry)...
Each healing (miracle/deliverance) is a gift, a manifestation of the spirit.
We the (leader or the lay person) do NOT exercise the power to heal independently.
Each healing is by the will of God, (received/appropriated) through the faith & service of a believer."
Burt, Arthur - How to Be Ordinary -
Jesus indicated to Arthur, "My jumper cables don't start with Me. They go back to My Father.
They are not Mine. I'm connected to My Father, just in the same way I've connected you to Me.
When you become 1 with Me, since I am one with My Father, then the power flowed to you."
John 14:10 KJV "Of Myself, I (Jesus/human flesh) can do nothing.
It's the Father (God Who is Spirit) that's in Me; He doeth the works."
John 5:30 TPNT "I (Jesus/human flesh) am not able to do anything by Myself." Jesus indicated to Arthur, "Who are you to think you could do something of yourself? This is the root cause of all your failures."
"All I ever did, I never did...All Jesus ever did, Jesus never did. The glory is God's."
Genesis 21:2/Isaiah 40:31/Psalm 46:10 - "God has rebuked me again & again by saying, "If you do NOT consult with Me (first before acting), you insult Me."

Chapter 8 Unconditional Surrender "The Son of God...declares, 'I can of mine own self do nothing...
[It is] the Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works.'
(John 5:30; 14:10)...Similarly, the Holy Spirit has an 'Himself,' a 'Me,' a personality that does not operate on His own. 'He shall not speak of Himself, but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak.'
(John 16:13)...In the Trinity there are 3 speakers & 3 doers, but the Son & the Spirit are also listeners...
Only One operates in the Trinity - the Father...If the glory is all God's, then the work is all God's." Jesus is "jealous for His Father's glory. He claimed, 'Though of My own self, I can do nothing; all power is given unto Me' (see John 5:30; Matthew 28:18)...In the day of fullness, we are to operate like Jesus...
This is our birthright, our destiny. The only reason we can't lay hold of it is that we are filled up with ourselves." When God gets 101% of the glory/credit/honor/praise & we get/want/receive 0%, then & only then may we possibly be ready to begin. No, God does not share HIS glory with us.
We just contain it like a sieve to leak out to others. As children we do not inherit HIS glory.
For 1 thing, He will never die. We can borrow Dad's magic wand, with His permission. That's about it.
Chapter 9 The Divine Plan shares a delightful story about numbers, or more specifically about nothings. There was a million dollars. The zeroes, nothings, got jealous of the #1. The last zero moved to the front of the line. Then the others followed. Each move reduced the total value until all were worth less & less, from 1,000,000 to 0100,000 to 0010,000 to 0001,000, etc down to 0000001. Finally, they recognized that each had their place to which they needed to return to regain their original value. So it is with us in our position in God. He is #1.
We are zero. Together we are a million dollars.

Ministries - John G Lake - www.kcm.org
Lake tells us we are to have the spirit of Christ, the mind of Christ & the body of Christ.
In addition we are to have the love, wisdom & healing powers of Christ...
All our DNA is to ooze out with the Holy Spirit. Lake tells us to consecrate not only our spirit to God, but also our mind & our body, lest we have insufficient usefulness on earth. If Christianity is a part time job, it will fail to produce much fruit. We can do what Jesus did on earth, but only if we are 100% dedicated, not 99% or 51%. Lake explains that the temptation of Jesus in the desert was triune. The 1st test was of His body.
The 2nd test was of His mind (soul). The 3rd test was of His human spirit...
We are likewise vulnerable to Satan in all 3 areas, unless spirit, soul & body are each indwelt with Holy Spirit. Then (when indwelt) we not only can refuse to accept harm, but can also allow God to heal others through the Holy Spirit's presence in us (spirit, body, mind). Like Christ, we will be able to see what God is doing/saying (in heaven) & do/say likewise (on earth). He points out that Moses tried to get God to fix the problem of the armies chasing him into the Red Sea. Instead, God dropped the ball into his lap & told him to fix the problem.
Likewise, we are reminded that Jesus finished God's work & left the ball in our hands.
Obviously, the ball is (both) the Holy Spirit & the Word of God. We, not God, are to weld it.
We have a choice, to allow the evil spirit or to allow the Holy Spirit to manifest & operate in our lives in our generation. Let us not wait until we are bedridden in a nursing home to act.
Chapter 25 Adventures in God shares the story of a 6 year old who of her own volition healed a family acquaintance. This is but 1 example of what God is doing in this generation. Scripture says that the kingdom of God is the children's bread. Children are the most receptive to the will/mind of God...
Lake contends that there are 3 salvations. Salvation of the spirit. Salvation of the soul.
Salvation of the body. When one commits his spirit, soul (mind), & body to God he receives a triune salvation. He makes an absolute consecration to God. This is the secret to a successful Christian life.
This allows for healing of both mind & body by allowing the mind/body/spirit to be filled with His Holy Spirit. Most Christians stop with the salvation of the spirit. This consecration needs to be hourly/daily to death...
2nd concept is that we are gods (not as Satan wished: to be worshiped, to weld power or to control) but as sons/daughters of God & brothers/sisters of Jesus. Thus, we have God's gifts of His Holy Spirit at our disposal. This includes healing. We refuse to accept any disease in our own body.
We go to our Dad (God) in heaven to pick out a new body part for another on earth.
John 10:34 - I said you are gods.
1st John 3:2 - Beloved, now are we the sons of God.
James 4:7 - Resist the devil, & he will flee from you.
Mark 5:28 - She said within herself"...I shall be whole."
Duggan, Dorman with Hammond, Frank The
Strong Man of Unbelief
Authors show that UNBELIEF is a sin that keeps man from finding eternal life in heaven, but also prevents the healing of body, mind, & emotions. Authors show that UNBELIEF is also an evil spirit (called a strong man) that needs to be bound plus cast out, once we have repented of the sin of unbelief (our own & that of our ancestors)!

deliver as part of their God given assignment.
Not in their own strength, but in the power of Jesus Christ.
She has a wonderful testimony where God yelled at her for being on the bed in the middle of a pity party. God commanded her to get up & heal the sick, using His power [which He imparted to her (& us) 2000 years ago].

Hammond, Frank & Ida Mae - Pigs in the Parlor -
www.thechildrensbread.net - Hammond reminds
us that the King James translation of the Greek word daimonizomai is
"possessed", which is incorrect & should be "demonized". No Christian can
be possessed. Both Christians & non Christians can be demonized, & most
are. Hammond urges each member of a Christian family to recommit himself
to Christ & then go through a deliverance. Christians can deliver
themselves, if need be. Why? The Bible explains that Satan & his
helpers were defeated by Christ 2000 years ago. That is why God does NOT
answer a deliverance prayer. Is is OUR job to bind & cast out demons, not
God's job. His job is done. In fact, it is our obligation to use all
the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Heal, deliver, do miracles, teach, preach,
etc. That means every Christian needs to receive the baptism of the Holy
Spirit, after receiving salvation & water baptism, in the name of Jesus Christ.
1 more item. Hammond contends that Satan has NO legal right to a
Christian, as some teach. Others teach that sin (their own or inherited)
allows Satan to have a legal right to oppress or indwell (demonize) anybody,
Christian or not. Hammond thinks that Christians & others are demonized
due to ignorance of what Satan does & how + due to ignorance of the fact that
Jesus (not Satan) has the legal title to our minds.
Hammond insists that we can & must evict the enemy. This book will encourage & equip you.

Chapter 3 God's Will Is Praying "After praise and worship...it takes prayer...
Heaven doesn't come to earth cheap. It never has...God's will is praying, not just thinking...
The mot important decision you'll ever make isn't whether or not to...get a degree...
It's a lot more important...to learn how to pray AND believe what you read in the Word."
Then "you can have anything." Much prayer brings much of God's unction into a place.
More prayer, more power. Less prayer, less power.
Chapter 4 Get Scriptures to Cover Your Case Align your prayer with God's will.
"Go to the Bible land find a Scripture that covers your case...
Many people are waiting on the Lord to come & heal them sometime.
They are trying to convince God to heal them...
The price has already been paid, but you have to find the Scriptures that cover your case...
If you don't do this...it may even cost you your life...
For example...1st Peter 2:24 (KJV) says 'by Whose (Jesus') stripes, ye WERE healed...past tense & that means we are (already) healed.'" "You're responsible to know what is in the Bible for yourself.
Quit driving around the country...looking for someone (else) to pray for you all the time.
YOU...walk the floor, YOU...worship God...(YOU) read the Bible...
You don't need to get to anybody except the Lord Jesus Christ...YOU look up the Scriptures that cover your case.
YOU claim them boldly in Jesus' name. Go before the throne of God & remind God of what He said."
Chapter 13 Be the Head of Your House See 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 "Jesus pulled me out of my body & into His presence...He...asked, 'How long are you going to put up with the growths on your daughter's body...
You're the head of your house. Be the head of your house'...I got the inside revelation from God that whatever happened at my house & on my property is MY fault...Jesus said, 'You are the head of your house.
If you will curse those growths in My name, they will die. (See Matthew 21:12-13)
If you will believe & NOT doubt, they will die like the fig tree did that I cursed'...
I did exactly what the Lord told me to do...I cursed the toots of those growth on her body.
I told them, 'In Jesus' name, you must die. You're in my house, & you must die'...For 30 days nothing happened; in fact, the growth looked worse. But I kept on & on. Finally after 40 days, God's power came into my house & swept over my daughter's body...That's the way God does business."11.16.2008
"If you EXPECT a healing from God, He will provide it for you...
Don't take NO for an answer.""You don't need a minister to come & pray to get God to heal your child."
"For 3 years an 81 year old woman confessed over a deformed boy, 'In Jesus' name, walk.
Body, I say unto you, you're in my house, straighten out & be normal.
Mind, be normal.' Every day for 3 years she did this, and one night God came & did what she asked.
You need to boldly confess the Word of God that covers your case every day...with victory & with love."
"When you're married, you can get a healing for your husband or wife, because the 2 of you are 1."
Chapter 19 Face to Face with Total Victory "I don't have any power apart from God." God is the surgeon.
I am the tool. Teach the patient to "continually" speak to/curse/evict/dissolve/abolish/bind/eliminate/banish his/her problem, in Jesus name. Continually/hourly/daily quote Scripture relevant to the situation. Continually praise & thank God, in Jesus name for healing/delivering/saving you. Confess that you ARE healed. We can keep (fight for) our healing or die (relinquish/lose it prematurely to our doctors/demons/medical providers/churches who are ignorant of the will of God in Scripture). For instance, "In Jesus' name, cancer (or whatever other mountain there is in your life), you'll never kill me. I'm talking to & telling you now, get out of my body, my life. Disappear now. Get totally out. You'll have NO part of me, because Jesus is my Healer."
Hayes, Norvel - You Have Authority - booklet - www.nhm.org
God Will Manifest Himself - "If you don't believe God's Word FOR YOURSELF & you get healed through some other person's ministry...that same disease will usually come (back) upon you AGAIN in time."
And by the Word of Your Testimony - "You yourself will have to...overcome (sickness/relapse) by the blood of the Lamb & by the word of your (own) testimony (+ confession of Scripture)."
"If you ever get tired of your testimony of what Jesus did for you (on the cross & personally), God will allow you to go back to the state you were in before. So don't ever stop giving your testimony abut that the Lord has done for you...give that testimony as long as you live."

Herzog, David - Mysteries of the Glory -
Chapter 5 A Revival of Wisdom urges us to ask God
to manifest His glory in the raising of the dead, when His glory comes into the
Recent indications of His glory are oil dripping from hands, gold dust falling, & angel feathers falling. Raising from the dead is a miracle rather than a healing, but it is becoming more & more prevalent in this generation.
David instructs us to simply command the person's spirit to return, in the name of Jesus.
Remember, we must always only say what we see/hear the Father say, just as Jesus did.
Hill, Steve - Operating in the Miraculous -
In Introduction, You Can Operate in the Miraculous,
Hill reminds us that Jesus Himself told us
that God wants us to walk in His
footsteps. - John 14:12-13 "He who believes in Me,
the works that I do he will do also; & greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do
that the Father may be glorified in the Son."
"Jesus conferred His authority upon you to do the same works (healing, casting out demons, raising the dead) & even greater works than these. With this as our Gospel heritage, why are we not living up to it...daily?" (However be reminded that it is His & not our power/glory/business/church.)
Chapter 13 Advertising Jesus the Healer, reminds us that we must always deflect praise from us back to Jesus.
Chapter 10 Atmosphere of glory, shares a wonderful story where author was invited to speak at Carlos Annacondia's Argentina stage. Upon exiting the stage a woman grabbed his hand & put it on her head, resulting in being slain in the Holy Spirit.
Then a crowd assembled, on which he placed his hands, resulting in more being slain in the Holy Spirit.
Steve was on a roll/high. He argued when Annacondia's assistants rebuffed him. Their response was, "Even a child could do what you are doing. Carlos wants you to understand, Steve that the faith level in this place is so high that anyone who comes to this crusade wanting to be healed is going to be healed.
They are so excited & believe anyone who stands on the platform (even to make an announcement) is a potential healer. It has nothing to do with you. He wants you to stop because you are disrupting the service."

Johnson, Bill - The
Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind -
Chapter 1 Change Your Mind -
"Jesus had NO ability to heal the sick. He couldn't cast out devils & had NO ability to raise the dead.
He said of Himself in John 5:19, 'The Son can do NO-thing of Himself'...If He did miracles as God, we would...have no compulsion to emulate Him. But when we see that God has commissioned us to do what Jesus did & more. Then we realize that He put self-imposed restrictions on Himself to show us we could do it, too. Jesus so emptied Himself that He was incapable of doing what was required of Him by the Father.
It requires the Father's help, more than we are capable of (on oue oqn). When we stick to doing only the stuff we can do (alone without the Trinity) we are NOT involved in His call" to heal, cast out devils or raise the dead.
Supernatural, The Life of William Branham (books 1-6)
William Branham reminds us in each book that God, not us, does the healing through us as we pray for & touch the patients. We are called to help others to acknowledge & believe in Jesus Christ's salvation & healing provided for every human by Christ's atonement on the cross & His resurrection power. Branham had an awesome healing ministry. In fact, it is not us, even, but one's BELIEF that triggers the healing.
There must NOT be a speck of doubt in the one trusting in Jesus for a healing. 2nd, often God requires that the one seeking healing, to repent of all sins, either just before or just after a healing & acknowledge Jesus as Savior. God cares more what is in our heart than in our head. He is more interested in the tree of life than in the tree of knowledge. It was the tree of knowledge that led to Adam's downfall. Intellect is wonderful.
God created intellect, but the heart (& not the brain) is the door to eternal life & to healing.
Another precept of Branham is that one needs to be under the anointing of the Holy Spirit in order to make come true whatever one speaks. It is the Lord in us that does the speaking & the doing.
Mark 11:23-24 will always come true, but only for those who are under the anointing.
Mark 11:22-25 NIV "Have faith in God, " Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' & does NOT doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, BELIEVE that you have received it, & it will be yours. When you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

The magic of it all is that you & I can do something about it, if we accept Jesus as our savior & allow Him to minister to the wounded person through us. Kraft's book is actually a how to manual.

In chapter 11 the Lord rebukes Jack Coe, "Son, whatever made you think that you could open the eyes of the blind, anyway? Do what you are suppose to do & I will do what I am supposed to do."
Later in Cole's ministry God began creative miracles, replacing missing body parts.
He & his wife formed an orphanage, where orphans spoke in tongues.

INTRODUCTION Moyo challenges us "to go past the place of desiring blessings &
talking in tongues to a new level of power. Yes" we "will be able to work
the works of God' in Jesus name.
"In the name of Jesus" we "will cast out demons, heal the sick & deliver the bound & oppressed.
Through" us "it will be proven that Jesus is exactly who He declares to be the resurrected Lord & Savior of all who call upon His name."
CHAPTER 3 Transformed by His Divine Power "It is easy to declare that Jesus is the Healer, but can you demonstrate this? Any mouth can declare that demons tremble at the name of Jesus, but can this be demonstrated in the presence of one who is demonized? There must be proof behind our testimony."

Biblical Healing - www.osborn.org -
Chapter 24 Four Vital Visions shares 4 visions
(revelations) that revitalized &
empowered their ministry. - The 2nd Vision shares, "In...1947...Rev.
(William) Branham cast out devils & ministered to the sick in Jesus name...He
prayed a simple prayer. In a quiet but authoritative voice, he spoke, 'You
dumb spirit, I adjure you in Jesus' name, leave the child.'
Then he snapped his fingers. The girl heard & spoke perfectly...
A thousand voices seem to whirl over my head, saying, 'You can do that. That's the Bible way. That's the way Jesus did it. That proves that the Bible way works today. You can do that. That's what God wants you to do...
At last, I had seen God do what He promised to do through a human person....We saw Jesus in a person."
The Fourth Vision was when reading Joshua, the Lord impressed a message upon TL, "My son, as I was with Dowie, Woodworth-Etter, Lake, Wigglesworth, Ritchie, McPherson, Price, and others, so will I be with you...You cast out devils; you heal the sick; you raise the dead; you cleanse the lepers....Behold, I give you power over all the power of the enemy...No evil power shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life as you get the people to to believe My word. I used those people in their day, but this is your day. Now I desire to use you."

Chapter 5 How I Learned to Become an Original shares Jesus' instructions on how to begin to be like Him, "Read the 4 Gospels and Book of Acts through 3 times consecutively in 30 days on your knees." 1 of the things Oral learned was to integrate teaching, preaching &healing, not to concentrate only on 1 part. A 3 fold gospel.
Chapter 8 How I Learned to Preach with the Anointing Every Time shares Jesus' definition, "The anointing is when you're separated from yourself and filled with My glory, so that when you speak it's like I am speaking; when you act, it's like I am acting."

The Rejoining of Heaven & Earth - "Yeshua Himself taught His disciples to
pray, 'Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is now done in heaven.'
In the garden of Eden, you see heaven & earth joined together...The tree of Life
was NOT an earthly tree, nor was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good &
There were earthly trees & heavenly trees. In the garden there were 4 rivers...
The Euphrates & Tigris...were earthly 2 other rivers...were heavenly rivers that we no longer have...
Adam himself was a joining of heaven & earth...He was spiritually alive until sin entered...He split heaven & apart, since do sin or death can abide in God's presence in heaven...Adam & Eve...were created with an ability to interface the the natural creation in the garden of Eden & with the spiritual creation that was visible to them, at the same time. (Originally) there was NO division between the thing of heaven & earth...
This is where we are heading (returning) again...We (subsequent generations) have put experiencing heaven off to some future event, either when we die or when the Lord returns. But Jesus didn't wait to die to go to heaven. In John 3:13 He (Jesus) was...saying, 'Right now I am in heaven'...Jesus' testimony was that He was in heaven right then while walking the street...He was the bi-dimensional new creation man living in the heavenly land earthly planes at the same time...Jesus'...heavenly ascension occurred (began) when He was baptized in water & the Spirit came on Him in the form of a dove.
He was both water & Holy Spirit baptized at once...Luke 3:22 Jesus ascended to heaven in the Spirit & began living in heaven & on earth at the same time. From that point on, He began moving in miracles...
Some think the provision was found in the fish's mouth, but actually, it was found in Jesus' mouth.
As He (Jesus) spoke the word from heaven & someone acted on it, the miracle happened...
Provision comes at our obedience to His word At our obedience to the initiative of heaven...
Jesus asks us to enforce His rule which He has already won...
Jesus looked into heaven, watched to see what the Father was doing & then copied it on earth...
He said, 'I only do what I see the Father do'...He made it clear in John 5:19 'The son can do nothing of Himself'... Philippians 2:5-8 tells us He emptied Himself of all His divine attributes: omniscience, omnipotence & omnipresence...(Even though He was born with a human spirit alive to God plus a body & soul alive to humanity, due to his parentage,) He did these (miraculous) works, not out of His divinity, but as a man...
He emptied Himself of the attributes of God (in order to be our example/mentor)."
Walters, Kathie Macon, Georgia, USA
Living in the Supernatural -
Chapter 4 Learning to Know the Holy Spirit - "Listen to His voice 1st, to rely on Him so much that we do nothing without Him...(Wait) to see what He says before we make commitments. We must learn to be led by the Spirit & NOT be motivated by need. When someone tells you of a problem or need, remember to listen 1st to what the Holy Spirit is saying about it. Do what He wants you to do in response."

Chapter 8 The Great Physician "Do, not try. You'll do, then God does the rest... When...churches carry...out the full ministry of Jesus...there will no longer be any need for a ministry such as mine. The healing ministry will have returned to the church....During those years (of illness) not one minister ever prayed that I would be healed, only that I would be able to endure the suffering & pain...But that is NOT the pray Jesus taught us.
He said He would heal His people & deliver us...whose hearts are open to receive...
When we know what God has available for us, then we can come to Him & ask...
We start appropriating it. We say, 'Lord, although I still have pain in my body, I believe that You are healing me, because Your word says so.' Then our physical body begins to change as the mind, body & spirit come into one accord with God's Word."

"In many ways this ministry all began...in Africa...
A woman fell to the ground with an epileptic fit...right there in the 1st row....Everybody was staring at this poor, writhing woman with foam frothing from her mouth. Instantly, the power of the Holy spirit came upon me.
I shouted to the people, 'Jesus Christ is going to heal this woman.' I stooped down and laid my hand on hr & prayed. I said, 'In the name of Jesus, I rebuke this disease & (Woman,) I speak healing to you.'
In that very moment the woman woke up...happy" (& healed).
"You see, to be truly successful at what we do, we need God-power, God needs manpower.
Usually it is 90% God-power & 10% manpower.
From the dawn of history, when Joshua stood on the borders of a nation that needed to be conquered,
God said, 'I will be with you. (Joshua 1:5)
Always remember, that with the task is given the means, the ability, the wisdom & most of all, the unseen (but moving) power of God, working secretly or openly, in the souls of people or in visible miracles.
We can only do what we have power to do. If God asks us to do more than is in our power, He makes up the difference. We do what we can & God does what we can't. We do our best. God comes in & does the rest.
Jesus said, 'You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you & you will be My witnesses to the ends of the earth.' (Acts 1:8) The church has too often trusted in scholarship, genius, logic & philosophy; but Paul said, 'God has chosen the foolish things.' (1st Corinthians 1:27)"
"We are not supposed to be lawyers, but witnesses. We believers are not spiritual attorneys...pleading in defense of Jesus. We are witnesses. Witnesses don't argue & plead. They simply speak the truth & declare what they know...If we are obedient to do our part, God will always do His part."

Awakening 7/18/2007 newsletter about persistence @
Bejoice, was healed of blindness. Well meaning Christians had accused Bejoice "of being under a curse."
The ministry team prayed continuously. Her blindness would begin to go & then return. "I asked her, '1 last time, are you feeling anything?' She responded, 'My eyes have a lot of heat in them.' I told her that this was a very good sign of healing anointing & that we shouldn't stop praying...At 1 point she told us that she was...too tired to to on. Having seen this before while praying for healing, I discerned that her tiredness was due to a 'spirit of slumber' that was trying to stop the healing. I told Bejoice how important it was for her to press through for complete healing...The more we prayed, the stronger her vision became."

Hayes, Dave -
SID: Dave Hayes, otherwise known as The Praying Medic. So let me tell you kind of a thumbnail sketch of Dave’s background. Raised Catholic. At 12, he became an atheist. You hated the name of Jesus.
DAVE: Guys had said, “Hey, you might be interested in this book, ‘Left Behind.”
I thought, "I don’t read fiction." I picked it up, I took it to the fire station & read it.
In the book, the Gospel of love is in this story. I started to read it. I got so convicted of the sin & wrong things I had been doing all my life. The presence of God showed up in the room. I didn’t know what it was at the time. He started to speak to me, “You know, if you’re such a good person, what about all these sins that you’ve done, the lies & all this other stuff.” I knew that night I had to make a decision. I could literally feel as if I did not make a decision to follow God that day, I would spend eternity in darkness. So with a lot of weeping & soul searching that night, I said, “God, if you are real, give me a voice to follow & I will follow You.”
This peaceful serenc voice was blowing through my soul, speaking to me about how to treat people with love, compassion & kindness. That was how I met the Lord.
DAVE: He said to me, “I’m going to show you what’s wrong with your patients.
I want you to pray with them & when you do, I’ll heal them.”
DAVE: The 1st thing that I had to learn was that God has already given me, you & all those people all the power & authority they need to heal. So we don’t need to beg God for healing. We simply (go & command). Jesus said, “Go heal the sick.” He didn’t say, "Beg my Father to heal the sick." He said, “Go heal the sick. Raise the dead.” So what I do, what I teach people is just go out & command sickness to leave...(In Jesus’ name).
I command sickness, disease & neck pain to leave. I command shoulders, bones, ligaments, nerves to be healed, ligaments healed, nerves healed. You don’t have to know a lot of anatomy. To command the body’s structures to be healed & sickness to leave is a great to start. You will see very good results right away.
DAVE: 1 of the other keys to operating successfully in healing is persistence.
In Luke, Chapter 11, right after Jesus taught the disciples how to pray, He taught them how to persist. Persistence is just something we have to learn how to do.
DAVE: God wants to do something with our healthcare that is completely different than what the government wants for healthcare. I think 1 of the things that the Lord wants to impress upon us is the fact that we’re relying too much on: insurance companies, doctors & the government to provide healthcare for us when Jesus came to be our healer. He is raising up an army. There are thousands of people out there in America, 10's of 1,000's, maybe 100's of 1,000's who are learning to operate in the supernatural. They’re learning about healing, words of knowledge & kingdom principles needed to release healing. If we had 100,000 believers out there in the world who would just pray for people to be healed, we could probably close down some hospitals.
We probably wouldn’t need as much healthcare insurance.
I think that’s the Lord’s heart (for us) to rely on Him to be our healthcare system.
[Our ability to heal is a fruit (rather than a gift already inside of us).
We have to practice/tend God's garden inside of us, once His seed (Yeshua) is planted in our heart.]
Jackson, John Paul -
"The major difference between (spiritual) power & (spiritual) authority is that anybody can have power (as) it is a gift; but authority comes only from intimate, abiding relationship with God & that takes effort.
Authority is bestowed upon us through relationship, & therefore it is only as deep as that relationship."
James Maloney, Voice of the Dove Co, Ft
Worth, Texas, USA -
As the man came into focus, I was now seeing through Jesus’ eyes, as if the man was lying at my feet. Now as I reached out my hands, I recognized them as my own, but they were the Lord’s hands, as if He’d stepped into me & was moving through me. Or I had stepped into Him. The power was totally the Lord’s alone, but He was choosing to move through me. I was no longer just myself, I was in Jesus & He in me. I laid my/His hands on the wasted, vegetative man. There was no struggle, there was no fight against the demonic. There was no binding, loosing, praying, sobbing, begging, spitting or sputtering. The man was healed, as simple as that.
Smith, Duncan and Kate - Catch the Fire Ministries (CTF) Toronto, Ontario, Canada www.tacf.org - 4/2/2007 ministry newsletter about persistence "Despite seeing many people healed from blindness in the past 4 years, I secretly wondered, 'Oh God will You heal this body?' Pushing away my own fears, I commanded the kingdom of God to come as I have done so many times. (Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.) There was no response; nothing happened the 1st 2 times. On the 3rd time as I commanded the will of this little boy's Heavenly Daddy to be done & rebuked that blind spirit to come off him; suddenly, I watched in amazement as his eyes sprung to life, focused & a giant smile came across his face as he declared, 'I can see.'"

Discover Your Supernatural Identity
Especially 2 CDs titled Your Supernatural Identity explaining that every individual was created to (1) carry the life of Christ inside himself, (2) thus to be Christ's flesh in his/her generation & (3) thus to heal/deliver/do miracles/raise the dead.
(Both the evil spirits & the Holy Spirit want to dwell in human flesh; let us choose aright.
God has not only created us, He has also chosen us; let us choose Him in return. He has entrusted/endowed us with His most precious jewels/ treasures/power. Let us be aware of our inheritance/our spiritual genealogy/our calling/purpose/destiny in life. Disown all lies of who you were or are. The only real/effective/spiritual truth is who you are in Christ Jesus. A born again Christian is a fish out of water, powerless without the baptism in the Holy Spirit, & powerless to act without the knowledge that each of us has the NOW power to do what Christ did yesterday. Put fear under your feet & act. Ndifon is a mentor as how to minister to others. His mentoring will give simplicity, courage, & spiritual muscle to act NOW. All healing/ deliverance ministries are wonderful, but this ministry is a cut above all the rest in empowering others to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Take your vacation week and spend it at 1 of Ndifon's Miracle Training week long courses.
It could be a turning point in your life.)
Walters, Kathie - The Spirit of Abortion
- 2 CDs - http://goodnews.netministries.org
Religious spirits, for one, will contribute to the termination/abortion of our
destiny/reason for being born. God qualifies us.
We do NOT qualify ourselves to heal or do any other spiritual feat. We are funnels/containers for HIM.
Once He dwells in us, we need to allow Him to operate in/through us. We need to obey Him.

Seed in us is ALL that we need. It is the seed that grows up into the
plant/tree/fruit. Everything is in the seed. We do need to
water/believe/ speak it, of course.
We need to ACT on the Word of God, because we are His flesh on earth.
His Holy Spirit is invisible inside us, but like electricity, it needs to be turned on/activated.

The Contrast: Identity vs Performance -
Expect indwelling Holy Spirit to perform signs & wonders using our hands and mouth.
Relevaltion knowledge will not accomplish our own need to speak aloud & act on God's words in scripture.
Jesus had to accomplish in the flesh God's assignment. Likewise, we hiers/sons/bride need to do likewise in our flesh His will on earth as it is illustrated & we are equipped in heaven with angelic assistance.

Dvorak, Becky – 12/24/2019 - The Prophetic and Healing Power of Your Words with Becky Dvorak – Part 2
Dvorak, Becky - 01/13/2020 with Donna Chavis on Something More - https://sidroth.org/television/tv-archives/becky-dvorak-5/ - synopsis - Spiritual blocks to healing: 1.lack of knowledge/revelation, 2.wrong confession, 3.interfering evil spirits (with symptoms such as: premature death or reoccurring incurable illnesses, tormenting/suicidal/murderous/abortion thoughts, negative/ fearful emotions
or such as: a familiar/family spirit which consumes much of one's thoughts/speech/behavior.)
Renounce & replace. Regarding cancer we say, 1st, In Jesus' name, I renounce that spirit of premature death. I renounce that cancer. I command every cancerous cell & tumor to dry up at the seed, to detach itself from the roots & be eliminated from this body.
2nd, In the name of Jesus, I release the spirit of life into my body.
I command my cells to be recreated. They are cancer free, proof & function 100%.
In Jesus' name, I command that spirit of death that has latched itself onto you, be detached.
In Jesus' name I command it to release it's tentacles off of you. By the Word of God, we decree a separation.
We cut it off from you. In it's place replace it with a spirit of life to flow into your body.
We renounce the spirit of fear that has also attached itself to you. God has not given you a spirit of fear (but a sound mind). We decree. We cut it off from you. He has given you love, power & a sound mind.
That (evil) spirit (of fear) has been stealing God's gifts from you & opening the door to the spirit of death to wreak havoc in your physical body.
Fear is a spirit that is scared to death that we will acquire the knowledge that will conquer him.
In Jesus' name, I renounce that familiarity (familiar spirit) of that disease over you.
You do NOT want to be familiar with, constantly conversing with, talking to (& listening to) a demon (& his lies/distortions/delusions) or talking to one's: self or disease. It is time to dethrone that familiar spirit in one's life. In Jesus' name, I renounce & command you out & away from me.
Religious controlling spirits misinform/reject & suppress/hinder/deny the born-again person liberty to believe/walk in Holy Spirit's baptism/power.
An orphan spirit often exists in one's life when there was the absence of a healthy fathering/parent in adolescence. Symptoms can include: manipulation, attempts to receive rejection, paranoia/victim mentality, fear of being taken advantage of, feeling insufficient/inadequate/unworthy. In Jesus' name, I renounce that orphan spirit that is oppressing or possessing you (in any area). Send and enable them to receive Your unconditional love (based on Father God's & not on their character, performance or looks). Thanks & amen.
Jackson, John Paul -
Our authority is only in proportion to our closeness to God.

Having utilized all available spiritual deliverance/healing resources (including famous pastors), the bottom line is that we ourselves (me/myself/I) need to participate in the process, especially at the end, to enforce any victory. We cannot opt out of the healing process, leaving all the work to others. Both God & Satan hold us accountable. Satan will have a tax free holiday, if we are expecting the televised heroes to come to our house & personally babysit our daily problems. Jesus died 2,000 years ago to provide our fix. He is waiting on us personally to apply His blood to whatever our need is, as well as to attack all demonic powers with His blood.
We, not He, nor a neighbor is to do our job.
Saint Antony -
"56. This was the advice
he (Antony) gave to those who came to him. With those who suffered he
sympathized & prayed. Oft-times the Lord heard him on behalf of many: yet he
boasted not because he was heard, nor did he murmur if he were not.
But always he gave the Lord thanks and besought the sufferer to be patient & to know that healing belonged neither to him nor to man at all, but only to the Lord, who doeth good when & to whom He will.
The sufferers therefore used to receive the words of the old man as though they were a cure, learning not to be downhearted but rather to be long-suffering.
Those who were healed were taught not to give thanks to Antony but to God alone."

He says that we all are bombarded by outside oppressing demons on top of any interior demons residing illegally. This demonic activity is normal & not isolated in the mental institutions.]

How To Stay Positive In A Negative World
- 6/8/2010 - great
(Commentary: On Palm Sunday Jesus could have rejected the Messianic cheers, deflecting credit to the Holy Spirit or His Father God. Instead He continued riding into Jerusalem in obedience, doing what His Father had disclosed to Him, & noting that even the rocks would have cried out, if the crowd had remained silent.)
Editorial - http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/stay_positive - "The Lord doesn’t automatically DO things for you.
He flows THROUGH you, & if you get discouraged or dismayed, you stop the process...
David encouraged himself in the Lord. Do you know how he did it? He took the Word & began to encourage himself & it was only a matter of hours before what God had promised him came to pass & he became king.
If he would have given in at that last minute, he would have lost...If you say, 'Here’s the line. I’m only going to go this far,' I can guarantee you Satan is sharp enough to figure out where the line is & push you past that point.
But when you say, 'I’m not quitting, ever. I’m never going to give up,' it makes a huge difference in the results you get... Recognize that Satan is using the evil & negative things of this world to discourage you...
You have to choose to be encouraged—to encourage yourself in the Lord...Scripture says to resist the devil.
He will flee from you (James 4:7)...
Unless you have a deliberate plan to encourage yourself in the Lord, you aren’t going to be encouraged.
It is not normal to be encouraged; it’s normal to be discouraged.
It’s abnormal to be strong & of good courage, but it's certainly doable.
God’s Word will tell you exactly how to do it."

I (AM) (Father God Who) command(s) you (disease/defect/malady/tumor/cancer/blindness/premature-death/enemy) to depart & never return, in name and power of Jesus.
COMMENTARY - NEVER, NEVER, NEVER take personal or ministry credit for healings
Always give away the credit to God. 1 brick does not make a brick house. The final piece to a puzzle does not make it the entire picture. Take the case of the demoniac whose demons fled into the pigs. Certainly there were grandparents, parents, aunts & uncles, cousins & siblings who prayed for that man. Certainly there were doctors & rabbis who prayed for that man. How many years did they pray? 75? 50? 25? 5? How man years did he himself pray? Jesus did show up & heal/deliver that man. Why? Why did He not heal many others with the same disorder? Why was that man in the right place at the right time? Why was he healthy? Why had no one stoned him to death? Why? Because God had been his covering for all those past years. God had been answering the prayers of others. Just because an individual or ministry is able to finish a job, does not mean that he deserves/ is entitled to the credit/fame for rescuing someone. A man who puts the roof on a house is not entitled to say he built the house. Each organ of the human body is equal to another, for none is superior; it takes all organs working together to make us alive. Scripture says that those who plant the seed & those who harvest the grain will both share in the rewards. John 4:36-38 NIV 36"The sower & the reaper may be glad together.
37Thus the saying, 'One sows & another reaps.' is true. 38I sent you to reap what you have not worked for.
Others have done the hard work & you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
Father God, in the name of Your son Jesus Christ, we repent of our daily pride/arrogance/self-sufficiency.
Father, keep a close watch over us, to keep us from temptation & from sin.
We do thank You now for today's insights & blessings. We are forever grateful.
We are especially grateful to those who You have helped/healed/delivered today through our ministry. Amen...
BEWARE when you say, "I am the one who healeth the." Why? God's name is I AM. God may remove His Holy Spirit/blessing/protection/assignment from us, as he did from King Saul, who disobeyed Him. Ouch.
God is to get 101% of healing praise/credit. Always. No exceptions. Consider Judas. He could have had it all, but lost it all. 1 little root, love of money/covetness grew up like a weed & choked him out of everything.
We humans need always beware. The enemy is always slinking around the corner hoping to catch us at our weakest. We have NEVER arrived; rather it is Christ Who has arrived in us.
Robertson, Dave The Walk of the Spirit -
The Walk of Power - The Vital Role of Praying in Tongues shares this prose
that seems to be revelation/spoken by God, "There were those who spent their
lives in prayer & then others harvested from their labor."
1st Corinthians 3:7-11 NIV 7Neither he, who plants, nor he, who waters, is anything (significant/able to brag)but only God, Who makes things grow (increase/blossom/produce fruit/mature spiritually).
8The man who plants & the man who waters have one purpose; each will be rewarded according to his own labor.
9We are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.
10.By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder; someone else is building on it. Each one should be careful howl he builds;
11for none can lay any foundation other than the 1 already laid, which (Who) is Jesus Christ.
