Do not trust what the doctors say, nor what you feel, nor what you see. Trust only the Word of God You have nothing to lose except your loved one. Fight for the one you love. Fight for yourself.

The New Testament is based on eye witness accounts, which have much historical evidence for what Jesus did and what Jesus said. Later publications such as the Gnostic scriptures were not eye witness accounts and were often subjective accounts, not inspired by the Holy Spirit, but rather attempts to reconcile the religions/beliefs of the day to the newfound Christianity, an outgrowth of Judaism. Jesus Himself was a Jew, what we would call a Messianic Jew. Jesus is the Messiah cited in the Old Testament. The New Testament (bride) is the completion (marriage) of the Old Testament (groom); the old covenant and the new covenant become one, in the spiritual sense.

Matthew 4:23-24 - 23Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing EVERY (evil) disease and sickness among the people. 24News about Him spread all over Syria, and people brought to Him all who were will with various diseases (evils/kakos), those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures (epileptics/being moonstruck), and the paralyzed (paralytics), and He healed them.
Matthew 5:4 - "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." (Jesus' beatitude)
Matthew 5:22-24 "I (Jesus) tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, Raca (damn you), is answerable to the Sanhedrin (church). But anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell. Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the alter and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift." (Spiritual insight: forgiveness heals both the soul and disease, per Henry Wright www.pleasantvalleychurch.net )
Matthew 5:33 - Seek 1st the kingdom of God and His righteousness (a personal "relationship" with God) and all these things (healings/provisions/deliverance) shall be added to you.
(Spiritual insight: God is not denomination but a Person. It is this Person who heals, first our hearts and then our bodies.)

Mathew 6:12 - Forgive us our (own & our ancestors') trespasses, as we also forgive our trespassers.

Matthew 6:14-15 - If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 8:6-13 NIV - "Lord," he said, "My servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering." Jesus said to him, "I will go and heal him." The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go.' and he goes; and that one, 'come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'do this,' and he does it." When Jesus heard this, He was astonished and said to those following Him, "I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. I say to you that many will come from the East and the West, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects (sons RSV/children KJV/descendants who trust in the blood line of Abraham rather than in the God of Abraham) of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go. It will be done just as you believed it would." His servant was healed at that very hour.

They were so violent that no one could pass that way. "What do You want with us, Son of God:" they (the demons) shouted. "Have You come here to torture us before the appointed time?"

Matthew 9:4-6 - Knowing their thoughts, Jesus (God) said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts (from your enemy the devil) in your hearts? Which is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'? But so that you may know that the Son of Man (Jesus, also son of God) has authority on earth to forgive sins." Then He said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home." The man got up and went home. (Spiritual insight = Jesus forgave the sin which caused the disease.)

Matthew 11: 4-7 - Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of Me."

Matthew 12:28-29 - (Jesus said), "If I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house." (Spiritual insight: The baptism of the Holy Spirit aids in overcoming demons.)
Matthew 12:43-45 - "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied (by the Holy Spirit), swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it 7 other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there.
The final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation."

The woman came and knelt before Him. "Lord, help me!" she said. He replied, "It is not right to take the children's (Jews'/believers') bread (healing/deliverance/covenant/ spiritual rights) and toss it to their dogs (Gentiles/non-believers)." "Yes Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." and her daughter was healed from that very hour.
Matthew 15:30-31 - 30Great crowds came to Him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others,
and laid them at His feet; and He healed them. 31The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled (deformed/incomplete) made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing.
They praised God (the author of every good thing).
Matthew 16:19 - "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
(Spiritual insight: This power was given to Christ's disciples after they received the Baptism of the Holy spirit.
Every spirit filled Christian has Christ's authority to bind evil and loose good, according to God's timing and will.)
Matthew 17:14-20 - When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before Him. "Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. [(KJV) He is a lunatic.] He often falls into the fire or into the water.
I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not heal him." "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "How long shall I stay with you? Bring the boy here to me." Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy and he was healed from that moment. Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?" He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain (malady/disease/ insanity), 'Move from here to there.' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Spiritual Insights: [What or who do we accept? Doctors? Feelings? Satan's thoughts planted in our mind? God's Word in scripture? NEVER pet (ignore/accept/ nurse/feed) your wild dog (infirmity/ sickness/curse); chase it off, in Jesus name.
Miracles frequently occur when we tenaciously agree with God and disagree with all other evidence.]

Matthew 18:18-20 - I tell you the truth, whatever you bind (forbid) on earth will be bound (has already been forbidden) in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
Matthew 24:13 - He who stands firm to the end will be saved (rescued).
Matthew 26:26 - "Take and eat (bread); this is My body (which bears/removes the wounds/diseases/evil of the world).
(The bread at communion represents the body of Christ.)
Matthew 26:28 - This is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
(The wine or red grape juice at communion represents Christ's blood.)
1:21-27 - They went to Capernaum, and when the
Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. The people
were amazed at His teaching, because He taught them as one Who had authority,
not as the teachers of the law. Just then a man in their synagogue who was
possessed by an evil spirit cried out, "What do You want with
us, Jesus of
Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are - the Holy
One of God." "Be quiet." said Jesus sternly.
"Come out of him."
The evil spirit shook the man violently and
came out of him with a
The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, "What is this? A new teaching, and with authority.
He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey Him."
Mark 1:40-41 A man with leprosy came to Him and begged Him on his knees, "If You are willing, You can make me clean." Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. "I am willing, "He said. "Be clean."
Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
Mark 2:10-11 - "But that you may know that the Son of Man has Authority to forgive sins on earth," He said to the paralytic, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home." He got up, took his mat and walked...(Jesus forgives & heals.)
Mark 3:5 - He (Jesus) looked around at them in anger and deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man,
"Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.
Mark 3:10-11 - For He (Jesus) had healed many, so that those with diseases were pushing forward to touch Him.
Whenever the evil spirits saw Him, they (the ill) fell down before Him and cried out, "You are the son of God."
Mark 3:23-27 - So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: "How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. If Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house." (Spiritual insight: If the enemy (disease or sin) is in my family, then the family has allowed the fox to enter the hen house. Let us tie up the fox who is Satin.)
Mark 4:15-20 NIV - Some people are like seed along the path where the seed is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word (spiritual insight/healing) that was sown in them. Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. Since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. Others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but he worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop - 30, 60 or even a 100 times what was sown."
Mark 5:2-15 (see Matthew 8) When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet Him...
No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones....He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do You want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God: Swear to God that You won't torture me (a demon)! For Jesus had said to Him, "Come out of the man, you evil spirit."
Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name? "My name is Legion," He replied, "for we are may."...The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them." He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs....The people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind. (Yes, Jesus does cure mental illness.)
Mark 5:25-30 TPNT - 25A woman who had a flow of blood for 12 years, 26suffered much under many physicians, spent everything beyond her means, and was not helped, but rather became worse.
27Having heard about Jesus, as she came from behind the crowd she touched the fringe (longest corner tzitzit/ tsitsit) of His prayer shawl (outer cloak/tallit), 28for she was saying, , "If I could just touch (the corners/wings of) His prayer shawl, I will be saved (healed)." http://www.rbookr.com/html/the_hem_of_his_garment.html 29Immediately the flow of her blood dried and she knew that her body was healed from the plague. 30Immediately Jesus perceived in Himself that the power (healing virtue) left Him. Turning in the crowd He was saying, "Who touched My prayer shawl?"
(Consider Acts 19:11-12 - God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. Consider Acts 5:15-16 . People brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter's shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and ALL of them were healed.)
Mark 5:34 - He (Jesus) said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering (plague)." (Spiritual insight = We need to touch God's healing power. A piano needs our touch in order to make music.
God is always there. Tenacious BELIEVING is needed to turn on His healing power.)
Mark 5:36-42 - Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe,"...He went in and said to them, "Why all this commotion and wailing: The child is not dead but asleep." But they laughed at Him. After He put them all out (because unbelief blocks healing),..He took her by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum (prayer shawl, rise)!" Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (She was 12 years old). (TPNT footnote explains that the Greek translation of the Aramaic was incorrect, because Talita coum means in Hebrew "Prayer shawl, rise", rather than "Girl, I say to you, rise"...A prayer shawl with healing powers in the corner tassels could have been placed over her during prayer.)
Mark 6:5-6 He (Jesus) could not do any miracles there, except lay His hands on a few sick people and heal them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith. (Spiritual principle: In order to receive, we need to believe.)

Mark 6:12-13 - They went out and preached that people should repent. They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them. (Spiritual insight: It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that people are healed. The Holy Spirit is symbolized by anointing oil.)
Mark 6:56 - Wherever He went-into villages, town or countryside-they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged Him to let them touch even the edge of His cloak, and ALL who touched Him were healed (Greek translation is sozo/ saved - saved from sickness).

The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by nation, and she sought Him that He would cast forth the devil our of her daughter; but Jesus said to her, "Let the children first be filled, for it is not right to take the children's bread and to cast it to the dogs." She answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord; yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs." He said to her, "For this (heart felt) saying, go your way; the devil is gone out of your daughter." When she came to her house, she found her daughter lying (peacefully) on the bed and the devil gone out (of her daughter). [Spiritual insight: The mother's intercession brought deliverance to her child. Jesus honored the tenacious faith of a non Jewish female (a nobody, a nothing).]
Mark 7:32-35 - There some people brought to Him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Him to place His hand on the man. After He took him aside, away from the crowd, (away from unbelievers,) Jesus put His fingers into the man's ears. Then He spit and touched the man's tongue. He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Be opened.."
At this, the man's ears were opened, (the bondage of) his tongue was loosened (loosed) and he began to speak plainly.
(TPNT footnote states that the spittle/spit of the1st born son was believed to have healing power.)
Mark 8:22-25 - They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When He had spit on the man's eyes and put His hands on him. Jesus asked, "Do you see anything?" He looked up and said, "I see people; they look like trees walking around." Once more Jesus put His hands on the man's eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. (Spiritual insight: Not all healings are instantaneous miracles...According to TPNT footnote, the spittle of a first-born son was known to have healing power.)
Mark 9:17-29 - A man in the crowd answered, "Teacher, I brought You my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked Your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not." "O unbelieving generation." Jesus replied, "How long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to Me." So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered. "It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us." "If You can?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes." Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief." When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, He rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," He said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again." The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, "He's dead." But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?" He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer (and FASTING - KJV)."

(edited)
'Early in my walk with Christ, I went to work at a hospital for mentally handicapped children in Lubbock, Texas. Just like Jesus was driven or impelled by the Holy Spirit to go to the wilderness, I was impelled to enter my own wilderness: this state school for profoundly handicapped children. one of the most tragic places I could have chosen. My days there were filled with heartbreaking hours of interaction with broken and hurting children in an atmosphere filled with some of the most foul smells you can imagine. The children I worked with didn’t have control over their bowel functions. Many times they would smear excrement all over themselves, over the doors, and over you. I often asked, “Lord, is this You? Did You really guide me here?”
Before long I came to understand that the Lord had brought me there by sovereign appointment to teach me about Himself.
That place in Lubbock, Texas, was my own personal school of the Holy Spirit. In fact, most of the key principles I use in my ministry today I learned in that place. There were hundreds of little children there, basically “thrown away” or discarded by their parents, officially “wards of the state,” little pieces of broken humanity whom nobody wanted and nobody claimed. The Lord said to me, “My Word says if your father and mother forsake you, I will take you up. I want you to go and love these little ones and be My ambassador of love.”1 -
So I went. For the 1st 9 hours, I would work with the children who could walk. Then I would go to the non-ambulatory wards to work with little brain-damaged babies. Many had been born to mothers on heroin. Others landed there after their alcoholic parents had brutally attacked and injured them in fits of rage or alcohol-induced delirium. These babies would stay in the little cribs until they were too big to fit in them. I would just hold them in my arms and gently rock them in a rocking chair while I prayed in tongues (my prayer language of the Spirit). I just knew Jesus loved them. I knew that I loved them too. It was as if Jesus broke off a little piece of His heart and put it in me. I truly loved those little children. The Lord Started Healing them. Suddenly I found that these little ones who were never supposed to walk were walking. One little girl whose official medical file stated that she had been born blind, started seeing and responding. Every time I came into the room, even though I made no noise, she would turn around and look at me while putting her hands out. It’s true: The Lord started healing these children.
It was during that time that I was assigned to what was called a “psychology task force” to administer behavior modification techniques to some of the children. These techniques were designed to teach selected 15, 16, and 20-year-old children how to tie their shoelaces or go to the bathroom unassisted.
The Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting - I’ll never forget the day I met a 16-year-old boy in that group of children whom I’ll call “Stevie.”2 Stevie was a victim of Down’s syndrome, a moderate to severe form of mental retardation often characterized by reduced mental capacity and certain physical deformities. Stevie was afflicted with something even worse. He was a self-mutilator who was driven to cry out and beat himself in the face constantly. The staff psychologist at the school had secured permission from state officials in Austin, Texas, to administer electric shock therapy to Stevie for a 6-month period. This “negative operant conditioning,” as they called it, was meant to modify Stevie’s behavior by administering electric shocks any time he beat himself. They graphed his behavior over that period of time. I saw the graph. He just got worse and worse instead of better. By the time I was there, his face felt like dry alligator skin because he beat himself continuously. Finally, the attendants tied Stevie’s hands in splints so that he couldn’t bend his arms to reach his face. The only problem was that the other children in his dormitory ward developed a new game once they figured out that Stevie’s hands were bound at his sides. They liked to run up behind him and push him so hard that he would lose his balance and fall down. Since Stevie could no longer instinctively shield his face with his arms because of the splints, every time the kids on the ward played their game and pushed him, Stevie would land facedown on the floor without any way to protect himself or soften the landing. Most of the time we would find him with blood streaming from his nose, lips, and mouth. Whenever I would come, Stevie could sense God’s love coming from me. He would put his head on my shoulder and just weep.
What Is the Answer for Stevie? - Finally I said, “Lord, You told me that You sent me here to love these children. What is the answer for Stevie?” Very clearly I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit say, “This kind goes not out but by prayer and fasting.” Although this may be a very familiar Scripture to you, it sounded totally foreign to me. I had attended a Bible university for 4 years and had earned my bachelor’s degree there, but I didn’t even know that the Spirit was quoting a Scripture passage to me from Matthew 17:21. Another thing I’d failed to learn about during my 4 years of Bible school training was the subject of fasting. I said, “Fasting. Doesn’t that mean no food and no water?” So I didn’t eat and didn’t drink water, Coke or anything else for that matter. I didn’t realize that when I fasted from food that I would have dreams about fried chicken, baked potatoes, and steaks. I was also unaware of the fact that when you do without water, your priorities will change. By the 3rd day of my fast without water, I began to get jealous every time I heard someone washing his hands in a bathroom sink.
Now Pray for Stevie - On the 4th day the Lord spoke to me, “You can drink,” so I started drinking water.
But I did not break the fast until the 14th day. The Lord said, “Now pray for Stevie.” When I arrived for my shift at the school that day, I took Stevie into my little office cubicle and said, “Stevie, I know your mind may not understand what I’m saying, but your spirit is eternal. I want to tell you that I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. I’ve come to preach good news to you. I want you to know that Jesus Christ came to set the captives free.” Then I said, “In the name of Jesus, you evil spirit of mutilation, you let him go now in the name of Jesus.” Suddenly Stevie’s body was flung about 8 feet away from me and hit the other wall of the cubicle. When Stevie hit the wall, his body was elevated about 3 feet above the floor. Then he slid down to the floor and let out a long sigh. Immediately I smelled an incredibly foul smell of rotten eggs and burning sulfur in the room, which gradually faded away. I quickly went to Stevie, cradled him in my arms, and removed his splints while he watched with wide eyes. Then Stevie began to bend his arms and gently feel his face. I watched him softly touch his eyes, nose, and ears; then he started sobbing. He had realized that for the first time he was not being driven to beat himself. He was gently touching his face. He had been delivered.. In that unforgettable moment, the Lord revealed to me what a powerful weapon He has given to us to pull down strongholds and set the captives free.
Within a few months, all the scabs had fallen off of Stevie’s face. He had begun to heal because he had stopped beating himself. Frankly, you are reading this book because of Stevie. I thank God for this young man and for the way the Lord used my compassion for his desperate situation to impart to me the divine truth that I am about to impart to you.
The miracle that brings you and me together in the pages of this book really began even earlier, in my 16th year, in Kenya, East Africa, in 1962. I was raised in a devout Hindu home. My destiny was already set according to time-honored East Indian tradition: As the son of a Hindu from a high military caste, I was being trained to become a leader in the Hindu community. I was well-versed in the sacred Hindu writings. Since one of the chief principles I had been taught from infancy was, “You are a searcher for the truth,” I obediently searched for the truth. My parents were from India, though I was born and raised in Kenya. I had won a number of awards. Though my father died when I was 5 years old, I was still a member of a privileged class and a high warrior caste in the Hindu world. My diligent search for the truth took a sudden turn in a new direction on a hot day in 1962 when a Baptist missionary’s wife came to our neighborhood to work with some little children. For reasons known only to God, this petite woman from West Texas was led to knock on the front door of a particular home where a devout Hindu family was living to ask for a cup of cold water. I happened to be there, and I happened to be the one who answered the door, so I gave her a cup of water and she gave me a Bible. (Little did either one of us know at the time that our simple exchange of water for the Word would result in the conversion of more than 700,000 people to Jesus Christ in the years to come. Sometimes even our most insignificant works of obedience are destined for far greater purposes than we can imagine!) I started reading the Bible because, of course, I was searching for truth. That was how I came across the strangest figure I’d ever read about. His name was Jesus Christ. As a searcher for the truth, I was captivated by this holy man’s incredible statement: “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”3 I said, “Yes, that’s right,” and read further in the Book of John. When I read the passage where Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” in John 14:6, the blinding scales fell from the eyes of this committed Hindu of the warrior caste who was so proud of his traditions. I was searching for the truth, and suddenly I saw that Jesus Christ was and is the Truth. Yet even then I didn’t receive Him as Lord and Savior immediately.
The Price Was Too Great - Despite what I had read in the Bible, I was debating over whether I should become a Christian because the price seemed to be too great to pay. If I dared to confess Christ, I knew I would be rejected by my family, including my mother, brothers and sisters. I would lose any status I had in the Hindu world. In fact, to my knowledge, I would be the 1st in my caste ever to turn his back on the Hindu faith. Finally, I said, “I’m not going to read the Bible anymore. I’m not even going to think about Jesus anymore.” Suddenly I went to sleep. I wasn’t knocked on the head, nor did I drift off to sleep. This was something out of the ordinary. All of a sudden my head dropped down on the table and I was instantly taken to a place where I’d never been before. I was walking on streets of gold and heard the most beautiful voices rising up in harmonies, singing songs I’d never heard before. I saw colors I’d never seen before. I was in perfect ecstasy (which means a lot to a Hindu.). There was perfection all around me, but suddenly it all faded into insignificance when I saw the Source of perfection walking toward me. I saw a light brighter than 10,000 suns put together, yet it did not hurt my eyes. He came toward me. Somehow I knew that He was the person of Jesus. I’ll never forget His eyes. When I looked into their depths, it was as if He had felt every pain in the world and had shed every tear that had ever been shed on earth. Pure love shone from His eyes in perfect combination with victory and triumph. Then He came and put His hands on my shoulders and said, “My little brother….” Suddenly I woke up and discovered that the Bible I’d received from the little Baptist lady lay open to the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus spoke to the rich young ruler: Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:21-23). I read the passage and realized that the rich young man who had come to the Lord ended up walking away because he thought the price was too great to pay. Then the Lord spoke to my heart, 'Are you going to be the same way?' I said, 'No, Sir,' and immediately received the Lord Jesus as my Savior, breaking untold generations of strict family tradition and devotion to Hinduism. I moved closer to my experience with Stevie when I moved from East Africa to the United States and attended Bible school at a Christian university. I earned my bachelor’s degree there and then went on to graduate school. I have to confess that I was proud of my intellect. I was intent on earning my Ph.D. in literature. I liked being “an intellectual.” I was faithfully learning to make simple things complicated. In the midst of my diligent pursuit of intellectual achievement and self-worth through graduate studies, I received the news that my mother was dying of terminal bone cancer in London, where the rest of my family had moved from East Africa. My mother’s doctors said that she was going to die in just a few weeks because she had a fast-moving and untreatable form of bone cancer that was eating up her body.
I Had Come to the End of Myself - I didn’t have answers for myself or my mother, but she was dying and asking for me. I was just a poor graduate student in Texas. I didn’t have money to go to England. It just broke me. I had come to the end of myself. All I could do was weep uncontrollably. Finally, after 3 days of tears and sorrow, I had an unusual experience on the 3rd night. Again I went to sleep, and was taken to that same place I had seen years before, when I saw streets of gold. This time I found myself in a grassy place kneeling before the feet of Jesus. I was looking into His face with my hands clasped before me. I was singing to Him. Jesus had laid His hands on my shoulders. I was surprised to realize that I was singing to Him in a language I could not understand. Then I woke up and knew something had happened. When I felt the urge to pray, I obeyed and said, 'Jesus.' In that moment, a wind came into my room and took my breath away. Then I felt something bubbling up inside me. When I tried to open my mouth, a song suddenly came out in a language I could not understand. The intellectual part of me said, 'This is weird,' but the rest of me said, “This may be weird, but this is the most wonderful thing I’ve ever felt.” I just kept singing in this strange language for an hour and a half. The only spiritual person I knew at that time was a Catholic nun I’d met in graduate school. I just couldn’t wait to talk to somebody about what had happened to me, so I ran to find Sister Marsha. I said, 'Sister Marsha, let me tell you what happened to me today.' After I told her about my experience, I asked, 'Am I going crazy?' I’ll never forget her answer. She put her books down and looked at me with joy and said, 'Praise the Lord, brother. You’ve been baptized in the Holy Ghost.' The Holy Ghost became very real to me from that day on. He started speaking to me. I quickly realized that He is a Person. He started telling me about Jesus.
He said, 'Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.' I hadn’t read these words in Hebrews 13:8 yet, so I said, 'Huh?' He said, 'Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.'
Pray for Your Mother! - This time I said, 'Yes.' Once again He said, 'Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.' Finally I said, 'Lord, what are You trying to tell me?' He said, 'Jesus healed 2,000 years ago. He still heals today.' When I asked, 'What do You mean, Lord?' He said, 'Pray for your mother.' Since I didn’t know any better (I hadn’t been taught yet that healing isn’t for today), I prayed for her as I was told. A few days later I received the news that my mother had been totally healed of her terminal disease. My mother lived another 24 years after that healing and received Jesus Christ before she died."

When He (Jesus) saw their faith, He said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven." (Spiritual insight = many diseases have a root issue of sin. www.pleasantvalleychurch.net )" The scribes and Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is This that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgives sins, but God alone?" Jesus perceived their thoughts. Answering, He said, "What do you reason in your hearts? What is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you.' or 'Rise up and walk?' That you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins,
I say to you (man with palsy), 'Arise, take up your couch, and go to your house." Immediately he rose up.

That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed...When Jesus heard this, He was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following Him, He said, "I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel."

Then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they many not believe and be saved (rescued/healed). Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. The believe for awhile, but in the time of testing they fall away. the seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear; but as they go their way, they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures. They do not mature. The seed on the good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop (fruit/retained healing).
Luke 8:43-48 NIV - A woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for 12 years, but no one could heal her.
She came up behind Him and touched the edge of His cloak The Hem of His Garment http://www.rbooker.com/html/the_hem_of_his_garment.html and immediately her bleeding stopped. "Who touched Me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against You."
But Jesus said, "Someone touched Me; I know that power has gone out from Me." Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at His feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed (Greek translation is sozo/saved). Then He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed (Greek translation is sozo/saved) you. Go in peace."

Jesus replied, "O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I stay with you and put up with you(r unbelief). Bring your son here." Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father. And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. (Spiritual insight = Before the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, even the apostles were cowed by demons. However, after one receives the Holy Spirit Baptism, he receives both courage and authority to cast out demons.)

Luke 13:15-16 - The Lord answered...'Should not this woman, a (physical or spiritual) daughter (descendant) of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for 18 long years, be set free (loosed)?'

(Spiritual insight: They experienced the cure after the healing service and after they obeyed.
Luke 17:15-19 - One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked Him - and he was a Samaritan.

John 3:14-18 - Jesus said, "Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert (so that those bitten by a snake could be healed by looking at Moses' brass snake), so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life (and healing/deliverance), for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him." (Spiritual insight: Satin condemns. The Holy Spirit convicts.) (The snake usually represents evil and sin. Jesus took my sin and disease into his body. God cannot look upon sin. That is why Jesus cried out, "Father, why has Thou forsaken Me!" For a moment, Jesus was separated from God, until my sin offering was completed, 2000 years before I was born.) (See Numbers 21:4-9 This old testament story shows us that God is willing to forgive and heal all.)
John 4:46-54 - There was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to Him and begged Him to come and heal his son, who was close to death...Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at His word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him. "The fever left him yesterday at the 7th hour." Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live." (Spiritual insight: As Jesus is still alive, we can take Him at His word now for our healing and also for the healing of our children.)
John 5:4-9,14 - An angel went down at a certain season into the pool and troubled the water. Whoever who first stepped in after the troubling of the water was made whole of whatever disease he had. A certain man was there who had an infirmity 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He asked him, "Do you want to get well?" The invalid answered Him, "Sir I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is troubled; while I am coming another steps down before me." Then Jesus said to him, "Get up. Pick up your mat and walk." At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked...Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you." (Spiritual insight = Jesus Himself connected disease to sin, here in this instance.) www.merlincarothers.com 11/04 newsletter reminds us that the invalid waited 38 years for his healing and admonishes us not to lose hope.
John 5:24,28 - "I (Jesus) tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him Who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned (by Me)...Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and come out."

John 9:1-7 - He saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked Him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" "Neither this man nor his parents sinned,' said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." Having said this, He spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. "Go," He told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam", so the man went and washed, and came home seeing. ("The cause of the suffering was to manifest divine providence." per Hampsch in Healing Your Family Tree) (The disciples speak of a spiritual principle of generational sin as well as person sin that causes illness.)

Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, 'Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that You sent Me.' When He had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out.' The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
John 14:6-14 - Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life (which includes health). No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well...Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father? Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in Me. The words I say to you are not just My own. Rather, it is the Father, living in Me, Who is doing His work. Believe Me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; or at least believe the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who 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. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son (Jesus) may bring glory to the Father (God). You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it.'

John 19:30 NIV - Jesus said, "It is finished!" With that He bowed His head and gave up His (human) spirit (life/He died). (Spiritual insight: Other Greek synonyms/translations are heart, mind, breath, and Holy Spirit. Lower case spirit means human spirit and upper case Spirit means Holy Spirit.) (Forgiveness of sins is finished. Healing of the body is finished. Healing of the mind is finished. Overcoming Satan is finished. Deliverance from demons is finished.)
John 20:21-24 - Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you." With that He breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven." (God, forgive us, as we forgive others.) (Spiritual insight: When His Holy Spirit enters us we become His disciples/priests/mouth and can forgive, His hands and can heal/deliver.)
John 20:26-28 - Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!" Then He said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe."
(Spiritual insight: The world existed in God's mind first, before creation.)
John 20:30-31 - Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have (a healthy and eternal) life in His Name.
1:8 - (Jesus said,) "You will receive power (to
do miracles/heal/deliver/preach salvation)
when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses...
Acts 2:38-39 - Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off - for all whom the Lord our God will call. (Spiritual insight= We all have been called, but all have not recognized His call...Let us claim with tenacity God's promises, both for ourselves and for those on our hearts. Jesus is the boat to eternal life, but it is His Holy Spirit that is the sail in the boat.)
Acts 3:6-7 - Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk." Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk.
Acts 3:16 - By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through Him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.
Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins (and diseases) may be blotted out.
Acts 4:7-12 NIV - They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them. "By what power or what Name did you do this?" Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers and elders of the people, if we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this...It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth (whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead) that this (crippled) man stands before you healed (Greek translation is sozo or saved.) He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. Salvation (healing/deliverance) is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by Whom we must be saved (in mind, body, spirit)
(Spiritual insight: We too have crucified Christ, for He died for the sins of generations past, present and future.)
Acts 5:15-16 - People brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter's shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and ALL of them were healed.
Acts 8:7 - With shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and many paralytics and cripples were healed.
(Spiritual insight = Connect the dots and see the relationship between evil spirits and illness.)
Act 8:14-17 - When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the Word of God, they sent Peter and 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 and John placed their hands on them, and 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.)
Acts 9:17-18 - Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, Who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized (in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of his sins).
Acts 9:34 - "Aeneas," Peter said to him, "Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and take care of your mat." Immediately Aeneas (a paralytic) got up.

must rise and you must immediately take care of your own pallet." He got up at once."
Acts 9:40-41 - Peter sent them (the unbelieving widows) all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, He said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up. He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called the believers and the widows and presented her to them alive.
Acts 10:38 - God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and...He went around doing good and healing all who were [(KJV) oppressed by] under the power of the devil, because God was with Him. (Insight = Christ is a synonym of anointed.)
Acts 14:3 - They (Paul and Barnabas)...granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
(Spiritual insight: We too as disciples have opportunity to do signs and wonders, by the power of Jesus Christ.)
Acts 13:39 (NIV) - I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins in proclaimed to you. Through Him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from the law of Moses. Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you, "Look, you scoffers, wonder and perish, for I am going to do something in your days that you would never believe, even if someone told you." (miracles, wonders, and healings for those who believe and do not scoff)
Acts 14:8-10 - In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked. He listened to Paul as he was speaking (God's word). Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" At that, the man jumped up and began to walk. (Spiritual insight: Faith comes by hearing God's word.)
Acts 16:16-18 - We were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved. She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, "In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!" At that moment the spirit left her. (Spiritual insight = Satin can counterfeit the gifts of the Holy Spirit.)
Acts 18:2-3 TPNT - 2Paul came to them, 3and because they they were in the same trade he was staying with them, and he was working; for they all were prayer shawl makers by trade.
(TPNT footnote "Prayer shawl making required rabbinic training that all 3 had...Jewish men referred to the prayer shawl as a "tent or prayer closet", because it was placed over the head to shield the eyes while praying.) (Additional insight = Paul was a "tent maker"...Jesus said to go into your prayer closet; for the Jews this meant to go under your prayer shawl/tent!)
Matthew 6:6 TPNT - "When you would pray, you must go into your secret room; after you lock your door, pray to your Father, to the One in secret; then your Father, the One Who sees in secret, will reward you."
Acts 19:11-12 - God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.
Acts 20:9-10,12 - When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him.

Acts 28:8-9 - His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured.
Romans 1:16 -
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the
power of God for the
of everyone who
believes; first for
the Jews, then for the Gentiles. (The New Testament original Greek word soteria tanslates as
health, rescue and safety)
Romans 4:13,17 - It was not through law that Abraham and his (spiritual) offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith...He (Abraham) is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed - the God Who gives life to the dead and calls (speaks) things that are not as though they were...The words "it was credited to him" were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness - for us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. (Spiritual Principle: I am a spiritual son of Abraham if I believe what God says in the scripture. If I am a spiritual son of God, having accepted Jesus as my savior and the Holy Spirit as my baptizer, then I can speak out loud things that are not as though they were and see God fulfill His promises in the scripture.)
Romans 7:21-25 - When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am. Who will rescue me from this body of death. Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Spiritual insight: The human struggle with evil is that we often fail to recognize that it is the evil spirit not self that is at war with the Holy Spirit. Once we recognize who the enemy is we can better defeat him, through Jesus Christ's power.)
Romans 8:1 - Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:11 - If the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead is in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (heal/raise up) your mortal bodies (from their sicknesses and from death) by His Spirit that dwells in you. (Spiritual insight: Holy Spirit can heal us now, before death.)
Romans 8:15 - You have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father (God/daddy).
Romans 8:25-27 - Hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. He Who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
Romans 8:31-34 - If God is for us, who can be against us? He Who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all - how will He not also,. along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God Who justifies. Who is he that condemns? (Not God). Jesus Christ, Who died - more than that, Who was raised to life - is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ; Shall trouble or hardship, demons...or anything else in all creation?
Romans 10:9-17 - If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. for it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame." For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, for. "Everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved." How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? How can they believe in the One of Whom they have not heard?...Consequently, faith (for forgiveness, salvation and healing) comes from hearing...the Word of God (Scripture)."
Romans 12:2 - Be transformed by the (Holy Spirit's) renewing of your mind.
Romans 12:21 - Where evil (sickness, disease, and weakness) abounds, let (God's) grace (mercy and goodness) abound all the more.
Romans 14:23 - Whatsoever is not of faith is sin (Unbelief in Jesus the son of God is a sin leading to death of the soul. In addition, unbelief in Jesus the healer blocks healing.)
Romans 16:20 - The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.
The blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.
1:20 - All the promises of God in Him are yes and in Him, Amen.
1st Corinthians 2:4 - (Paul said,) "My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power."
1st Corinthians 2:16 - We have the mind of Christ. (Let us claim this daily.)
1st Corinthians 3:9-10 - It is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.", but God has revealed it to us by His spirit.
1st Corinthians 4:9,13 - We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men...
Up to this moment we have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.
1st Corinthians 6:3 - Know you not that we (who have been forgiven by God and also have forgiven those who trespassed against us) shall judge angels?
1st Corinthians 10:10-11 - Neither murmur you, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer (serpents). Now all these things happened to them as examples for us (not to murmur/complain/grumble).
(Spiritual insight: Bitterness is our enemy.)
1st Corinthians 10:21 - You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in the Lord's table and the table of demons. (Spiritual insight = Satan will flee in the presence of the blood and bread of communion. However, we need to appropriate this power when we receive. Refer to Hampsch in Healing Your Family Tree.)
1st Corinthians 11:27-30 - Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord (takes communion) in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself (go to confession) before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing he body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.
1st Corinthians 10:10 - Do not grumble as some of them did - and were killed by the destroying angel.
1st Corinthians 11:27-31 Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord (takes communion) in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of he Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep (died).
1st Corinthians 12:3 - Therefore I tell you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
1st Corinthians 12:7-10 KJVer - The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man, to profit all.
To one is given the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, the gifts of healing, the working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, diverse kinds of tongues, (or) the interpretation of tongues.
All these works are from the same (Holy) Spirit, distributed to each man as He will.
2nd Corinthians 1:20, 21 -
No matter how many promises
God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ...Now it is God Who makes both us and you
stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and
put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
(Spiritual insight = Our house in heaven is paid for as is our healing. Let us claim it.)
2nd Corinthians 2:10-11 - I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes.
2nd Corinthians 5:19 (KJV) God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us His word of reconciliation.
2nd Corinthians 5:21 - God made Him Who had NO sin to be Sin for us so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God (become right with God and become right/healed in body, mind and soul).
2nd Corinthians 6:2 - He (God) says, "In the time of My favor I heard you and in the day of salvation I helped you." I (Paul) tell you, now is the time of God's favor; now is the day of salvation.
2nd Corinthians 10:3-5 - The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish (demonic) strongholds (of disease, death, etc) .We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (Spiritual principle: Many thoughts are not from us, nor God, but from Satan. Once we recognize this, we then can exercise our NO muscle to reject such unhealthy and dangerous thoughts.)
Galatians 3:13 -
Christ has redeemed (paid the bail for) us from the curse
(breaking) the law, being made a curse
(trade/substitute) for us:
for it is written, cursed (evil/despised/diseased) is every one who hangs on a tree.
Galatians 3:29 - If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Galatians 5:6 - The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
1:3-8 - Praise be to the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with
every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the
creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.
In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will - to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him we have redemption (of both soul and body from disease) through His blood, the forgiveness of sins (by confession and communion)
Ephesians 1:11, 13-15 - In Him we were also chosen...Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, Who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession, to the praise of His glory.
Ephesians 1:20-23 - He (God) raised Him (Christ) from the dead and seated Him at
His right hand in the heavenly realms far (up) above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age abut also in the one to come. God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body (of believers), the fullness of Him Who fills everything in every way.
Ephesians 2:6 - God raised us (me) up with Him in heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:10 - For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 3:16 - Be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.
Ephesians 3:20 - Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask
or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.

Ephesians 4:26 - Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,
and do not give the devil a foothold.
Ephesians 4:31-32 - Get rid of all (evil spirit) bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every for of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ephesians 6:11-17 (KJV) - Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh (man) and blood (disease), but against (spiritual) principalities, against (spiritual) powers, against (spiritual) rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take the whole armour of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 17-19 - Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds
of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying...
Philippians 1:6 -
He Who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion
Philippians 2:9 (KJV) - Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 2:27 - He (Epaphroditus) was sick unto death, but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me (Paul) also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
Philippians 3:10 - I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings. (Spiritual Principle = The Holy Spirit is the power of Christ's resurrection and the power of our own resurrection from the grave.
The Holy Spirit is the power that Jesus used to heal and the power that heals us now.)
Philippians 3:20-21 NIV - Our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body, (beginning TODAY).
Philippians 4:4 - Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Philippians 4: 5-9 - The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. The peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.
Colossians 2:13-16 - Christ, He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the written code with its regulations (curses), that was against us and that stood opposed to us; He took it away, nailing it to the cross. Having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them (demons), triumphing over them by the cross. Therefore do not let anyone judge you (rock your boat/internalize, accept, receive or take criticism personally, especially regarding past sins nailed to the cross, thus under the blood of Jesus).
1st Thessalonians 5:16-19 - Be joyful always, pray
continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in
1st Thessalonians 5:23-24 - The very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul (mind) and body be preserved blameless (without defilement, corruption) unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1stTimothy2:8 - I want met everywhere to pray with holy hands lifted
up to God, free from sin, anger and resentment/disputing/doubting.
1stTimothy 4:1-5 - The Spirit speaks expressly, that in later times some shall depart from the faith, giving in to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry; and commanding to abstain from meat, which God created to be received with thanksgiving. for them which believe and know the truth. Every creature of God is good and nothing is to be refused, if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the work of God and prayer (grace before meals).
(Proper nutrition requires a balanced diet. 2nd, grace before eating food, detoxifies it, as will be needed more and more due to pollution, food sprays, animal diseases, food engineering, and germ warfare.)
2nd Timothy 1:7 KJV - God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2nd Timothy 2:25 - Those who oppose Him, He must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the Devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
- Are not all angels, ministering
spirits, sent to serve those who will inherit salvation
(of soul, mind, and body)?
Hebrews 2:13 - I will put my trust in Him (God).
Hebrews 3:12 - See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
(Spiritual insight: Perhaps the unforgivable sin is the sin of unbelief that separates us from God and His mercy.)
Hebrews 3:19 KJV -
They could not enter in (to God's promises/blessings) because of unbelief.
Hebrews 4:1-3 - 1Although God's promise still stands-His promise that all may enter His place of (spiritual + mental + physical) rest (healing) we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all.
2For this wonderful news-the message that God wants to save us-has been given to us just as it was to those who lived in the time of Moses. But it didn't do them any good because they didn't believe it. They didn't mix it with faith.
3For only we who believe God can enter into His place of rest. He has said, "I have sworn in My anger that those who don't believe Me will never get in," (Psalm 95:11)
even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began.
Hebrews 4:12 - The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword.
It penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
(Note, the spirit of man and the soul of man are 2 separate entities. Spiritual insight: Christ rebuked Satan with the Word of God, so that Satan fled and did not gain victory. We can rebuke evil "thoughts", in the name of Jesus, so that they will flee.)
Hebrews 4:13 KJV - Neither is there any creature (evil spirit) that is not manifest (revealed) in His sight; all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him.
Hebrews 4:14 - Let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
Hebrews 4:16 - Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence.
Hebrews 5:8 - He (Jesus) was a son. He learned obedience from what He suffered. Once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation (of spirit, soul/mind, body) for all.
Hebrews 6:11-12 - We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
Hebrews 7:25 - He (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.
Hebrews 9:22 - Almost all things are by the law (of Moses) purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission (of sin). (In church communion our Messiah's blood is represented by wine or red grape juice.)
Hebrews 10:10,15-19 - We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all...The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First He says, "This is the covenant I will make with them after that time," says the Lord. "I will put My laws in their hearts and I will write them on their minds." Then He adds, "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." Where these sins have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) - Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:3 - By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. (Spiritual principle: We need to speak aloud most everything we desire to materialize. Likewise we need to zip our lip to those things that would become curses in our lives: doubt/gossip/drugs/liquor/sweets)
Hebrews 11:1,6 - Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. (Spiritual idiom: faith is a muscle that increases with use.)
Hebrews 12 1-3 - Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses (of faith), let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him Who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Hebrews 12:12 (KJV) - Look(ing) diligently...lest any "root of bitterness"
springing up trouble you and thereby many be defiled (diseased/bitter/sick)
Hebrews 12:13 NIV - Make level paths for your feet, that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
Hebrews 12:15 (KJV) - Look diligently lest any man fail of (miss) the grace of God;
lest any "root of bitterness" spring up and trouble you, and thereby many are defiled.
(Bitterness is a principality; under it are 7 spirits: unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, anger, hatred, violence, and murder per Henry Wright. www.pleasantvalleychurch.net )
Hebrews 13:5-6 - God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you, so we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid."
Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of
your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so
that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:5-8 - If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, Who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. When he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded (soul/personality) man, unstable in all he does. (Schizo means split or division.) (God explained schizophrenia to Ida Mae Hammond. www.thechildren'sbread.net )
James 1:13 - Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted with evil; either tempts He any man.
James 1:6-8 - But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
James 4:2 - You have not, because you ask not.
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you. ( paraphrased: Resist disease and it will flee; also, Resist sin and it will flee)
James 5:14-16 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the Name of the Lord. The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. (Spiritual principles #1. the need for confession, #2. the role of church elders, #3. the medicinal value of oil which represents the Holy Spirit, and #4. the connection between disease and sin)
1st Peter 1:13(KJV) -
Gird up the loins
of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end
for the grace that is to be brought
to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1st Peter 1:18-21 -You were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers...with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect (as required by Jewish law). He (Jesus) was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through Him you believe in God. (Spiritual insight: Our belief in the Messiah makes available to us the healing of inherited family dysfunctions, diseases and maladies.)
1st Peter 2:9 - But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1st Peter 3:7 -
Husbands, in the same way be
considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the
weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life,
nothing will hinder your prayers.
1st Peter 4:8 (KJV) - Above all things have fervent charity (mercy/forgiveness/love) among yourselves:
for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
1st Peter 5:6-11 - Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. The God of all grace, Who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
(Our enemy is not our illness, our medicine, our doctor, our situation, but Satan.)
2nd Peter 1:3 - His divine power has given to us all things.
1st John 1:9 -
If we confess our sins, He is faithful
and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1st John 3:8 - The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work (disease/infirmity/illness/death).
1st John 3:14-15 - We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. (Spiritual insight: Murder in my heart contributes to my death by disease, not just my spiritual death.)
1st John 4:3-4 - Every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. You dear children are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than (Satan) the one who is in the world. (Asking God the Father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit to take up residence in our hearts, provides the help and protection we need for the rest of our lives.)
1st John 4:18 - There is no fear in love. (God is love.) but perfect love (God) casts out fear, because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect.
1st John 5:4-5 (KJV) - This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
1st John 5:13-15 - I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. If we know that He hears us (then) whatever we ask, we know that we have what we asked of Him.
1st John 5:16-18 - If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death; I am not saying that he should pray about that. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death (terminal illness).
3rd John 2 (KJV) "Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper. Be in health, even as your soul prospers.
Jude 9 - The archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" (Spiritual insight: It is God who judges and brings about justice.)
Revelation 3:18 (TLB) -
from Me to heal your eyes and give you back your sight.
Revelation 12:10-11 - For the accuser (Satan) of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by (speaking out loud) the word of their testimony.
Revelation 12:17 - The dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman (Mary mother of Jesus) and went off to make war against the rest of her (spiritual) offspring - those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
(Spiritual insight: We are not at war with disease and evil but with evil spirits who are out to destroy mind, body & soul.)

We are to apply God's words in our mouth TO evil circumstances, problems, diseases, Satan and/or his demons.
We are to remind/rehearse out loud TO ourselves and God of His own words. For instance, "Satan, the word of God says in Romans 8:1, 'There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.'"

Idioms in the Bible Explained and A Key to the Original Gospels Harper
Booklet in lieu of author's translation of the King James bible using Aramaic/Arabic idioms.
Some of translation is suspect, bordering on the demonic, perverting some "sacred cows/beliefs" of Christianity.
Author has also published The Holy Bible and Old Testament Light. Nonetheless a good resource. Salt with prayer.
The Power New Testament
New Testament has Hebrew/Greek roots revealing Jewish colloquial meanings for original words.
In discussion of binding and loosing, Morford indicates that what we now bind and loose, has already been bound and loosed first in heaven. Thus, as with salvation or healing, we appropriate what Christ has already done 2000 years ago on the cross.

There Was No Jesus, There Is No God: A Scholarly Examination of the Scientific, Historical, and Philosophical Evidence & Arguments for Monotheism
Part 1 reveals the spurious nature of the sources used to establish the truth of Christianity and the existence of Jesus, and the equally spurious methods employed by many Biblical scholars. A brief interlude then leaves no doubt that the existence of the Christ of Faith is virtually impossible, and concludes that even the existence of a stripped-down Historical Jesus is uncertain. Bayesian reasoning is shown to justify skeptical views on many topics, including the existence of God.
Part 2 shifts the focus to the God of classical theism and monotheism, examining the evidence and arguments from scientific, historical, and philosophical perspectives. The inadequacy of the case for God is found to easily justify non-belief (atheism). Furthermore, considerations of alternative gods and conceptions of God, lead to game-changing concerns for Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Originator of red letter edition of Bible -
Originated from recognition of pathos of Jesus
Klopsch, Louis - http://www.squidoo.com/red-letter-bible - "Klopsch conceived the idea of printing some of the Biblical text with red ink while he was reading Jesus' words himself, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.' (Luke 22:20), he thought printing all of Jesus' words in red; the color of his blood, might be a novel and useful idea." 
Klopsch, Louis - http://www.deepershopping.com/red-letter-bible/2323/storepage.html
In Modern Christianity, Klopsch wrote in an explanatory note on his red-letter Bible,
"striving zealously to draw nearer to the great Founder of the Faith. Setting aside mere human doctrines and theories regarding Him, it presses close to the Divine Presence, to gather from His own lips the definition of His mission to the world and His own revelation of the Father… The Red Letter Bible has been prepared and issued in the full conviction that it will meet the needs of the student, the worker, and the searchers after truth everywhere."

“BRIAN: Jesus Christ came into my room. He breathed on and commissioned me.
SID: When he breathed on you, I have to ask you this, what did it feel like?
BRIAN: It felt like a kiss from Heaven. It felt like Heaven's wind. The rock, the breath, the wind of God came upon me. He spoke to me and said, "I'm commissioning you to translate the Bible into the translation project that I'm giving you to do." He promised that he would help me, and he promised me that he would give me secrets of the Hebrew language.
SID: Do you believe that when he blew on you it was an impartation for revelation?
BRIAN: I do. I believe the spirit of revelation was given. I have to say, when he breathed on me in no way would I want to compare that to the writers of the New Testament, the original writers, you know, Moses and the Torah, and Ezekiel. He breathed on me so that I would do the project. I felt downloads coming, instantly. I received downloads. It was like, I got a chip put inside of me. I got a connection inside of me to hear him better, to understand the scriptures better and hopefully to translate.
SID: Are you finding that when people read this translation that it almost does a mind bypass and goes directly into the heart?
BRIAN: I think that's a brilliant way to say it. The poetic language of Hebrew and Aramaic released something inside of us. It's Divine. It is full of revelation. There's flavor. It's not, it's like thinking with your heart. It's like heart level to heart level, spirit to spirit, deep calling out to deep.
SID: Passion is the operative word. This translation will give you that passion back.” http://www.stairwayministries.org/
