God Heals Today!
Healing Is Your Biblical Right!
Mark 16:17-18 17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
The Bible Is Our Proof That God Heals Today!
The Bible is the same yesterday, today and forever. It gives no limit to the authority we’ve been given in Christ Jesus to receive healing or whatever else the Bible says Christ did for the world. Therefore, by the authority of Jesus Christ believers can cast out devls, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, be immune from all types of poisons and lay hands on the sick and be assured that they will recover.
Many Christians don’t believe Mark 16:17-18 because they don’t trust that God’s Word is true or they expected to have these abilities without having faith, and because they failed, they came to the conclusion that God doesn’t keep His Word. It’s not possible to operate in God’s Word by looking to self rather than God. We can never do what Jesus did for us on the cross on our own. We can only receive God’s promises by the authority we have in Jesus Christ by faith.
I just finished reading Christian author, Anthony Marnell’s new book, The Sons Of God: A Discourse on the Christian Revolution which helps Christians see that without faith nothing can be accomplished in Christ. To receive God’s blessings and to accomplish the works Jesus said we can do, we must first walk by faith and not by sight. As he states, “when you walk by sight for the things of God, you’re putting the cart before the horse.” How true that is!
For example, he says that what you see and feel in the physical world may be a sick physical body, but if you go by what you see and feel in the natural world and let that be the leading edge of your consciousness, that’s not going to get you anywhere in the kingdom of God with regards to walking in divine health. From my personal experience, I can’t agree with Anthony more. This truth is at the center of accepting that when we ask God to heal us, we immediately receive no matter what our eyes tell us.
He continues to say that if you craft your health by the seeds of faith, you plant in prayer before the LORD by confessing with your mouth and believing that Jesus bore all your sickness and disease and by His stripes, you are healed, then as long as you hold onto that with dogged determination, then the physical cells in your body will be transformed by the spiritual realm in order to line up with what you have spoken forth in faith.
“Push back” he says, “against any sickness that tries coming upon you. Resist sickness with dogged determination and faith. Learn to walk by faith and not by sight and refuse to be denied. Be determined. Persevere so that your faith will be rewarded and the kingdom of God manifests in your life, in Jesus name, amen.” Wow! This is a great example of creating great faith that is guaranteed to yield whatever you say according to God’s Word!
God Heals Today and Always By Faith
I love how Anthony expresses the outcome of standing firm in faith for what we’ve asked God to do for us. We must stand firm in faith believing and seeing with our spiritual eyes that God’s Word is alive in our bodies and at work changing the damage done or the ravages of a condition or disease when it comes to bodily healing. It’s imperative to believe that God answers our requests when we ask. We receive first in the spirit and our dogged faith manifests it in the physical realm.
James 1:5-6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Resist the devil and he must flee from you. It’s not a question of if, but believing that it’s already happened because of the authority we have in Christ Jesus! Sickness and disease come from Satan, not God. Only good and perfect gifts come from God. So build your faith to resist Satan’s lies.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Be Assured That God Heals Today
Don’t judge God by the world and lose out on your healing! The world can’t understand God’s truth. Instead, look to the Holy Spirit and let Him guide you that He may abide with you forever. He will bear witness that by God’s grace and the work of Jesus on the cross you are empowered to be healed today.
John 14:16-17 16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
