So, you might ask, why am I teaching on healing? Glad you asked. Healing is a very big issue with me because it’s a big issue with God. He healed in the Old Testament and He hasn’t changed. He still heals today in spite of what people may think or say.
Acts 10:38 (KJV) 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
(Notice that sickness and disease is from the devil, not from God. Otherwise, Jesus would be fighting against God when He healed people!)
He’s the God Who created the heavens and the earth. Is healing too hard for Him? No, of course not. So why aren’t we seeing and hearing massive testimonies of healing? Because the Church is divided on it and not preaching and teaching what the scriptures teach about healing.
Some say healing passed away when the early church apostles died but that’s not true. Some say that they believe God can heal but it’s all up to Him who gets it and who doesn’t. Not true. Then there are those who believe that God can do anything but you never know what He’ll do. Not true. You always know what God will do because He will always do what He has said in His Word and He cannot lie.
Numbers 23:19 (KJV) 19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
Brothers and sisters, we have been so programmed by the world’s way of thinking that’s it’s a wonder we ever get our prayers answered! I want to change that and that’s why I’m doing this series on healing.
The first thing we must do is to have mind renewal to what God has said in His Word. That way we can de-program ourselves and expose the deception that has been perpetrated against us regarding healing. And sadly, most of it has come from the Church’s wrong teaching!
Romans 12:2 (KJV) 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Ephesians 4:23 (KJV) 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
