Woman In Distress and Then Healing Ministered

October 19, 2013

woman in tears   A female client arrived very upset and crying a great deal. A woman on our team came alongside her and chatted. The client had recently left a 6 year abusive relationship. She shared that she had scars all over her body where her partner had beaten her up and that she’d told no-one of this before. Previously she’d lost a child. She also shared that she had been abused as a child herself. We offered her prayer and she gladly accepted. She blamed God for her child dying, and it was difficult for her to accept God wasn’t to blame.  Her partner had just paid some guy £500 to track her down and get her back.  She was fearful about this, so we managed to put her in touch with a woman’s refuge nearby. Before she left she said how much better she felt, thanked us for our care,  and said she wanted to come back and see us next week.

Our team leader had fallen recently and had ligament damage to her leg. She told us she’d had prayer at church and the Lord had completely healed her. We had a short time of praising Jesus for this. Then one of our team shared that she too was in pain from a ligament problem in her left leg, which she’d had for several weeks. She then asked “will you pray for me?” Two of us laid hands on her leg and after a few minutes I asked her to test it out. She got up, walked about and said the pain was gone and her leg felt warm. She said she’d report back later on the leg.   legs and knees

Painful Bandaged Foot Treated by Jesus

October 4, 2013

conversation overheard   While chatting today about recent healings to a colleague, I noticed a client listening with interest to what was being said. I said to her: “do you have any pain?” She said she had a damaged foot and was in quite a lot of pain. On a scale of 0 to 10 she said it was an 8, so pretty painful.   foot with bandage on it

She was agreeable to prayer for healing, so I encouraged her with a story from last week when the man’s liver pain dramatically disappeared. It ended up with three of us laying hands upon her and taking authority over the pain. I then asked her to get up and test it out. She said it was now about a 3. I offered to pray again, to get it down to zero, but with a shy smile she said: “no, that’s OK thanks” and left with her bags of food. I encouraged her to keep thanking Jesus for what he was doing and then see the pain go completely.

Training for Christian Healing and Discipleship

October 2, 2013

amazing    God is doing something amazing today. For far too long, Christians have been sitting in the church waiting to find “their ministry”, or for the Spirit to give them a revelation of their special task.  I’ve been guilty myself, even handing out “spiritual gifts questionnaires” for folk to fill in to find their “ministry”. The good news is that God is revealing the truth that we all have the same ministry. That ministry is the only one that Jesus ever commissioned his followers to carry out, namely: “preach the gospel of the Kingdom and repentance from sin, heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead”. If your ministry aspirations are other than that, they’re not the ones that Jesus commanded you to obey in His word. Perhaps you’re basing your plans on the “traditions of the elders”. If you don’t agree, then take it up with Jesus. Some words of Jesus from John’s gospel:  bible verse john14:24

John 14:15: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.”

John 14:21: “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me.”

John 14:23: “Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.””

John 14:24: “He who does not love me will not obey my teaching.”

Some Churchgoers have been more active, running from speaker to speaker seeking “that new anointing” that will enable them to do great things for God. The fact is that we aready have all the anointing we need from Christ, aka “the Anointed One”.  If you want to do the works of Jesus you need His anointing aka the Holy Spirit; there isn’t any other in reality. Also, to do the works of Jesus you need to walk out of the church building, be obedient and do what Jesus had already commanded his disciples to do. As you go out in obedience and faithfulness, he will equip you.

Jesus rightly condemned the Pharisees for their slavish adherence to “Tradition”. We have been just as guilty, following our own traditions that – ultimately – have evidenced little true discipleship, and even less fruit.

So if you want to get started in Christian healing you need to start by doing it.

Below are some really great links to get you started.

Dr Roger Sapp explains clearly how Jesus is the model for us to follow in ministering healing:
