Signs and wonders in 2006
The bible states the following: "God is love. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son (Jesus) into the world to condemn it but that the world through Him might be saved." Saved from what? In Jesus own words he said He was sent "to preach the gospel (good news) to the poor, to HEAL the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind," etc. As He went about preaching the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, He proclaimed that the Kingdom is within us...that being righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." Jesus came out of the wilderness filled with the Holy Spirit without measure full of grace and truth. Jesus mission seemed to be that He desired that all men come to Him be reconciled to the Father and be healed (Made whole) in body, soul, and spirit. The apostle Luke states 5:19 that "the people sought to touch Him for power went out from Him and healed them all," Jesus was given authority over all flesh. Jn17:2. It is a fact with thousands of witnesses that Jesus healed the sick in His day and passed this power at Pentecost to His apostles and to all who believe. Mark 16:17-18. James 5: 14-16.(Please read for yourself and know that these words are true or throw the whole book away and perish)
So now I speak only to believers and those who have RECEIVED HIM not only as Savior (body, soul and spirit) and Lord of all, but as the living Son of God who sent us the Holy Spirit to dwell in us without measure.
Can you hear the cry of the Fathers' heart? "Heaven is My throne and the Earth is My footstool. Where is the house you'll build for Me. Whom of you will hear the cry of My Heart. Where will My resting place be?"
The saints of God and His believers reply: "Here Oh Lord, have I prepared for you alone. Long have I desired for you to dwell. Here Oh Lord, have I prepared a resting place. Here Oh Lord, I wait for you alone. Here Oh Lord have I prepared a resting place."
What is healing from the saints point of view?
Is purity, and holiness necessary? Of course it is...but its not our righteousness but Jesus' that allows us to enter into His presence. Through the blood of Jesus we are made the righteousness of God to come boldly to the throne of grace and receive all that Jesus won for us on the cross. The bible clearly states that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
I relate to the testimony of Peter and John entering the gate beautiful and seeing a cripple that they saw had faith to be healed. They stopped to minister to the beggar. It is remarkable what the apostles said. "Silver and gold we do not have; but such as we do HAVE, we give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Acts 3:1-10. What was it, that the Apostles had, that caused (healing to be transferred to the beggar) the man to rise, walk and leap so that all were amazed. Obviously an impartation of healing and strength had taken place. Jesus explained it this way when the woman with the issue of blood touched Him. Jesus said, “I felt virtue flow from me." What was this virtue? Where can we get it? Where did Peter and John get it? What really happened in the upper room in Acts chapter two that filled them with such power? Many believe that the Holy Spirit empowered the apostles and other followers on that wonderful day of Pentecost 2000 years ago. Glory to God. Can you imagine the apostles in the upper room waiting, longing, desiring with all their hearts, loving the Lord with all their hearts, praying, fasting. Had they in this intense atmosphere unknowingly placed themselves in a position to receive a heavenly power from the Lord God of Heaven and Earth?(Can you hear John crying out the word "Maranatha"?) Could this intense love, hope, and faith or desire in their hearts be creating a tremendous spiritual potential such as is built up in the natural when there's a thunder storm coming? Scientist say that when a cloud builds up a massive positive charge and the ground builds up a great negative potential; the law of nature is that a tremendous pull between the two just has to be released (balanced). The flash of lightning and great clap of thunder is the result of this discharge.
Ok, could we put this same principal to work in the spiritual realm? Could the apostles hunger and thirst for God and our prayers and fastings coupled with a tremendous love and faith yearning for the Lord possibly create a potential in the spiritual realm that God would honor with an impartation of His virtue and presence thereby healing the sick? Could this impartation of power from heaven to the apostles and all true believers be what some Pentecostals call the baptism in the Holy Spirit? What did Paul mean when he said; "Know ye not that you are the temple of the Holy Spirit"? Again Paul says; "It is no longer we that live but (implied that we are dead to the world, the flesh, and the devil) Christ lives in us through faith (faith working through love and compassion)in the Son of God to do great and mighty things. In Mark 16:17 Jesus gives us power and authority to cast out demons, heal the sick, etc. Now, can the temple of the Holy Spirit do anything? No! But the Holy Spirit working through us (the temple) can do all things. Faith working by love can move mountains. There is a revelation in the spiritual realm that we must seek with all our hearts if we are to be effective in the healing ministry with something to give a world that is sickly and dying for the real goods. This scripture sums it all up... "Christ in us the hope of Glory." Oh that the body of Christ would seek a revelation of Gods' presence (one with Him Jn.17:23) can saturate a man or woman to become just like Jesus in the earth today. There is a way into the Holy of Holies through the veil where we can commune with the Father. Ask anything in Jesus Name and it will be done. Divine healing and health are virtues of God. These can become ours as we dwell in His presence (abide in Him Jn.15:5.) Ps 91 promises health and healing from abiding (not just a visit please) in His presence. When Moses came down from the mountain, his face shown like the sun. Why? Because he had been in the presence of God for 40 days and what we worship, what we gaze at, we become like that person. Moses was being changed into the glory of God. A poor earthly example could be pupils becoming like their teachers and some believe that husbands and wives after many years together pick up traits from each other so that one even knows what the other is thinking about at certain times. There is a certain mannerism that the clergy manifest. The same with policemen, politicians, lawyers, etc. Why? Because not only do we broadcast what is going on within us, we start to become what we think about all day long. The scriptures say "As a man thinks, so is he." If this is true and the scriptures never lie; then, if we think we are sick then we are. If we think we are healed then we are. If through prayer and repentance, we are in right standing with God, what a wonderful feeling of righteousness, peace and joy.
A man wishing to be healed came to Jesus asking if it was his will to be healed Jesus said, "I am willing be made whole." I TAKE THAT TO MEAN THAT IT IS GODS WILL THAT WE BE HEALED.
Letting God do for us that which we cannot do for ourselves...
Very early in the morning I rise up to meet Him. I turn on soft very special worship music of Terry MacAlmon to usher me into the presence of God. It takes about 5 minutes to stop my mind from wandering so I can really enter into the singing prayers. After I make my requests known to God my grateful heart of love starts drawing me closer to His presence...My prayer language starts to kick in. I am asking the Holy Spirit to pray the will of the Father through me for today’s challenges. My cry is more love, more power, more of God in my life. I worship Him with all of my heart. I will worship you Lord with all of my strength. One thing I ask, One thing I need; that I may dwell in your house all of my life and that I may see you as you are. I can envision Jesus taking me by the hand and leading me into the secret place of the most High. He loves me as I am. I know I am his child. Can you hear the sound of angels singing? I dare not make a sound now. I can feel something sacred, something holy, something wonderful is about to happen. I want to see His face. In my mind I know He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I feel a burning desire to see His face and to hear His voice speaking to me. I am so grateful for the feelings of love and thanks in my soul as I draw near to Him. A tremendous hunger and thirst of love fills my soul. Holy Spirit take me all the way to my loving Father is my desperate cry. My heart is on fire, burning with love for Him. I enter His throne room. I am undone. I glimpse out of the corner of my minds eye at the glory that fills this room. I reach out like a child to his Father for Him to pick me up. A yearning to crawl up into Dads lap and lay my head on His shoulder and give Him the biggest love hug I have ever given Him consumes me. I feel a love and security that I have never known before. "Father God, I am complete in your arms of love." The things of earth have grown strangely dim. Nothing matters any more. "I am being saturated with Your essence. There is no place I'd rather be than in Your arms of love holding me near. My senses are filled with all kinds of awesome feelings of love, hope and goodness. I hear a still small voice. I am listening, hanging on to every thought being imparted to me. He is showing me things (like golden nuggets) in the bible to share with His people. He is giving me His Rhama word for my life for this day and hour. He is giving me a glimpse of things to come. He is showing me who needs an encouraging word and who I need to minister salvation to today. He is all in all at this moment.
I have received the love of the Father and now must give it away to a world that needs it desperately. I will sing of your praises O Lord I will sing of your wondrous works. I'll be glad and exalt in you. I will praise you with all my heart. Time has ceased to have meaning. Three hours have passed and it seems like only 3 minutes. I feel different. I feel refreshed. I am ready to charge Hell with a bucket of Ice Water. Take my life and let it be, fully consecrated to you O' Lord. Take my voice and let it be, filled with messages of your wonderful love for us. More love, more power, more of you in my life. I go to the mirror and look at the image of a man. I am thinking in my heart of hearts that I want to have the kind of love in me today that Jesus had when He was on this earth and no matter what happens bad today; I will respond in love. I believe that love and compassion is the power that activates and drives our faith to do awesome things that would, in the natural, be impossible. Let me put it this way; if faith was a 747 jumbo jet, then love would be the fuel that gives it the power to take off. Now I am thinking of the scriptures: "Christ in me the hope of glory." "It is no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me." Could this mean that everywhere I go today; God goes? Could it be that everything I do today; God does? Am I Not the temple of the Holy Spirit? Have I renewed my mind in the word of God, and do I really possess the mind of Christ? Do I really possess something Holy or does He possess me? Can I really say like Peter and John? "Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have, give I thee. In the Name of Jesus of Nazareth...Rise and be Healed." Do I really have something in me to give away or someone to impart like Peter and John?
Glory to God....Yeesssss!
To Him be all the Honor, all of the Glory, and all of the Praise forever and ever. Amen.
