IF HEALING DOESN'T COME!
Some people have ask God for healing and nothing has happened ... They think, God does not hear me. I am not worthy. Healing is only for a few. It must not be His will to heal me. WHEN I PRAY NOTHING HAPPENS!
You are not alone. Many people pray and do not get healed. WHY???? We are going to go over some of the most common causes for not being healed. See if you are in one of these groups. If so, GET THE PROBLEM OUT and GET HEALED. God meant for you to have all of His blessings.
1) What do you want most? Healing or Jesus?
What do you want most? A loving relationship with Jesus or to be cured? Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Divine healing can only come as a by product of loving Jesus. It is one of your gifts. Like Salvation ... eternal life. Test yourself and see. Do you want your healing the most? Or do you want to have a loving relationship with Jesus the most?
People come 2jesus all the time, about 3500 per day. Many come to be healed. Some just want to pull in like a filling station and say heal me and then go on their way. Living the life they were living before. Not searching for God, not wanting to follow in the way of Jesus. Just patch me up and send me out again. That is not going to work. You will not be healed. Matt. 6:33 But seek first (First!! Not after your healed but first.) His Kingdom and Righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. What things? All of God's promises.
2) God does not hear me, or it may not be God's will to heal me.
Isaiah 30-19, (How gracious He will be when you cry for help. As soon as He hears, He will answer you.) As soon as He hears???? How do we know He hears? Isaiah 65:24, (Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.) Job 22:27, (You will pray to Him and He will hear you.) 1 John 5:14-15, (This is the assurance we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know He hears us - whatever we ask - we know we have what we ask of Him.) Plus many more verses...
Now we knows He hears us. But is what you are asking according to His will???? As we are talking about healing, yes, we know that is His will. All the way through the Bible God's will is for us to be healed. James 5:14-16, Matt. 9:28-30, Matt. 9: 6-7, Matt. 4:23-24, Jeremiah 30:17, Exodus 23:25, 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:5 ... These are a few verses that prove that it is God's will to heal you.
If this was your problem, put your mind at rest. God hears you and He wants you well. Because if you doubt God, you will get nothing. It would mean you did not have faith in His Word.
3) Are you walking in Love?
If we are to live in line with God's Word we must have love along with our faith. Are you walking in love? Read 1st Corinthians 13:1-13 This chapter is about love and how important God thinks it is. Without love we are not Christ like. Without love we are just going through the motions of faith and believing in Christ. Without love we cannot have the gifts God has in store for us.
Are you unknowingly not walking in love? If you find fault with someone do you rush to the phone to tell someone else what you found out? Or do you cover that fault with love and silence and try to restore that person. Quietly to that person or to the Lord in prayer?
If you gloat over other's mistakes. And in the next breath pray to God to heal you ... your faith cannot work at the highest level. It probably will not work at all.
Do you hold grudges? If someone has wronged you do you forgive them? You must forgive them!!!! Do not carry that burden of hate in your heart!!! You should forgive as God forgave you, with love. You should pray for them. You must pray, Lord bless them. Lord help them. They do not know what they are doing. Help them because they do not understand.
You say that is hard you cannot do that ... Well tell me, has anyone pushed a crown of thorns down on your head? Has anyone whipped your back until it was cut to the bone and bleeding? Has anyone nailed your hands and feet to a cross and hung you up to die? Well they did that to our Jesus and He said, "Forgive them for they do not know what they do." If my Jesus can do that ... Then I have enough of his love in me to forgive someone who says something to hurt my feelings. Or spreads untruths about me. And you do too.
Until we can do that we are not going to get well. The Devil will be in control of our life and not Jesus. So as of this minute get the love of Christ into your life and GET HEALED!
4) I am not worthy.
Well maybe you are not. Let's see what that means.
If God thinks you are unworthy it will be for one reason only ... you are living in sin. That is a sin you have not confessed to Him. Once you have confessed that sin to God, you will be immediately forgiven and be back in grace. And God will think of these sins no more. Hebrews 8:12 And neither should you.
Look what Jesus has done for you. 1 John 2:1-2 (If anyone sins we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense ... Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins and not only for ours but for the sins of the whole world. Thank you Jesus!
So if you are not in sin and you still feel unworthy? Why? Who are you anyway? How does God see you?
Eph. 2:6, God has raised us up together with Christ.
1Cor. 6:17, He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
1Cor. 12:27, Now you are the body of Christ.
Matt. 28:20, "And I am always with you."
Eph. 3:20, His power is at work in us.
HOW MUCH POWER IS THAT?
Matt. 28:18, Jesus said, "All power is given to me in Heaven and Earth."
THAT IS THE POWER OF GOD! ... THANK YOU JESUS ...
NOW IS THAT UNWORTHY?
If you still feel unworthy, that will be a lie the Devil is trying to get you to believe. And that is easily taken care of. Jesus has given you control over the Devil and the power to use His name. Mark 16:17 and Luke 10:19. All you have to do is to use what Jesus has given you.
You Command the Devil! Here is what you say ... Devil, you foul creature ... I command you in the name of Jesus to take this feeling of unworthiness out of me ... I belong to Jesus and it is written ... That I have control over you ... So leave me in the name of Jesus ...
You can use that power for any sneaky thing the Devil or any of his demons try to burden you down with. This is also the first thing I use on any sickness. As almost all illnesses are from the Devil. If that was your problem don't wait! Get right with God! And get the Devil out of your life! And GET HEALED!
5) I Prayed for My Healing; But it does not seem Real.
Have you ever acted as if it were real? Have you ever told anyone that it is real? Have you ever confessed it to be so? Why? Because you do not want to sound like a fool? Why? The Bible says it is so. Is the Bible a lie?
You are afraid to walk out on faith ... You are afraid to put God to the test ... What if I don't get healed? I do not want to loose my faith in God. I want to give Him an out. Which all means you do not really believe He is going to do it. Where is your faith?
You trust God with your future in eternity ... Certainly you can trust Him with your health. God's Word means what it says. STAND ON IT.
Romans 10:10 ... with the mouth confession is made unto ... A promise from God's Word must be confessed as a reality before it become true in your life ... Confess it ... Claim it ... Walk in it ... you are taking what is legally yours.
6) The Big One ... Weak Faith
This is a killer ... You will surly die of some disease if you do not have faith. You have just read what you have in Christ and where you are positioned in God's eyes. So that should be a big start in letting you know what can be done through faith and that God means for you to have the faith and to use the power and gifts He has given you. Why would He give them, if He did not want you to use them? Besides it is our duty to be the Body of Christ here on earth, and doing His work for Him as He directs.
I presume you have read the Faith Section on 2jesus. If not do so. Then you will know what faith is and how you should use it.
People build faith by listening to God's Word and reading God's Word. Romans 10:17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. So start building faith. Do you listen to more TV than you listen to God's word? That may let you know why you are not healed.
Do you trust God's Word above everything else? If God says you are healed, do you believe it? Or do you believe the doctor or your body's pain?
Here is how faith works. You pray for your healing. And now comes the hard part ... When you believe in your heart that you have been healed. You are healed! No matter what your body says. You believe it because that is what God's word says. At that moment you accept your healing from the Spirit world. And it is yours. Also at that moment you start praising God and thanking Him for His healing. And then God through your faith in Him, brings it into the natural and you are then healed physically. I hope you got that because it is how God operates and the most important thing you will ever know about divine healing.
Think about it this way. And this is the way most people think about it. If you pray and then wait for the healing to manifest in the physical before you start thanking God. That does not take faith ... Any atheist could do that.
Now how long do you wait for your healing to manifest into the natural world? That is a good question with no real accurate answer. I have been healed many times. Two of my healing were instant. One took about two weeks and another took about a year, although I was feeling better right after I prayed and then I got better and better everyday for the next year and then it was completely gone. I have been connected with many other people who have been healed and their healing were the same. Some instant ... Some over a period of time.
Now here is how a lot of people loose their healing. They start off fine. They have the faith it takes and they are healed. But they do not see it in the natural and after a while with the Devil shouting at them that it is not going to work. That God did not hear them or they were unworthy or some other lie. They would give up on God. And at that time they lost their healing that was on the way to them.
So when our healing is not instant, how are we to keep the Devil at bay while we wait? 1st. Timothy 6:12, We are to fight the good fight of faith. We have to believe God and trust in His word. We are going to have to hold our ground. Even when it looks like we are going down. But do not quit! Through God you will be victorious. Just believe His word and do not give up.
Get into the Word and build your faith. Then go back out and meet the Devil head on and say, There is nothing you can do to me. Jesus has given me the power to defeat you and the one who is in me is greater than anything this world can throw at me.1 John, 4:4 If you are going to beat the Devil in every situation in life, you must have an attitude that you refuse to quit!!!!
DO NOT LET THE DEVIL TAKE THIS AWAY. YOU ARE HEALED AND GOD WILL BRING IT FORTH. LET US PRAY TOGETHER NOW ...
DEAR FATHER I STAND IN AGREEMENT WITH FERD. WE KNOW I AM HEALED BECAUSE YOUR WORD SAYS THAT I AM. AND I BELIEVE AND TRUST YOUR WORD. WE ARE STANDING ON YOUR PROMISES AND WE KNOW YOU CANNOT LIE. SO WE ARE ASSURED THAT I HAVE MY HEALING. I NOW HAVE GOTTEN MY HEART IN THE RIGHT POSITION TO RECEIVE. I LOVE JESUS MORE THAN LIFE. I WANT TO FOLLOW JESUS AND HIS WAYS. I WANTS TO SHOUT JESUS' PRAISES AND TELL THE WORLD OF HIS GREAT HEALING. FATHER WE ARE CONFESSING TO YOU AND TO THE WORLD THAT I AM HEALED. AND I AM READY FATHER TO HAVE MY HEALING BROUGHT INTO THE NATURAL. WE STAND TOGETHER SAYING THAT THE DEVIL CANNOT KEEP IT AWAY FROM ME WITH LIES ANY LONGER. THANK YOU FATHER, YOUR CHILDREN, FERD AND I. WE PRAY IN THE PRECIOUS NAME OF OUR SAVIOR, JESUS ... AMEN.
NOW FATHER WE WILL USE THE POWER OF JESUS THAT HE HAS GIVEN TO US. MARK 16:17 AND LUKE 10:19. SHOUT THIS TO THE WALLS WHERE YOU ARE OR GO OUT INTO THE YARD ... SATAN YOU VILE CREATURE. WE TAKE AUTHORITY OVER YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES. HE HAS DEFEATED YOU AND IT IS WRITTEN THAT HE HAS GIVEN US HIS AUTHORITY TO CAST YOU OUT OF OUR LIVES ... ANY DISEASE IN MY BODY HAS TO LEAVE NOW. SHRIVEL UP AND DIE YOU DEMON FROM HELL YOU CAN NOT STAY HERE ANY LONGER. IN JESUS NAME OUT OF MY BODY OUT OF MY LIFE. THE ONE THAT IS IN ME ... JESUS ... IS GREATER THAN ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD AND YOU HAVE NO POWER AGAINST HIM ... I AM HEALED. MY HEALING WAS PAID FOR BY JESUS AND IT IS MINE ... I TAKE IT AND COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE, SO I CAN GET WHAT IS MINE.
THANK YOU JESUS FOR DELIVERING ME. THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME WHOLE. THANK YOU FOR BEING IN MY LIFE. WE LOVE YOU AND SERVE YOU WITH ALL OF OUR HEART, MYSELF AND FERD.
YOU HAVE YOUR HEALING AND YOU ARE GOING TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH. AND THE DEVIL IS NOT GOING TO KEEP IT FROM YOU. YOU USE THIS COMMAND AND CONFESS YOUR HEALING AND PRAISE GOD EVERYDAY UNTIL YOU GET A CLEAN REPORT FROM THE DOCTOR.
WE ARE NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH THE DEVIL ANY LONGER ... HE IS DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED, DEFEATED ...
HEALING IN A NUT SHELL!
1) Read God's Word!
Follow these four steps and believe that God is listening. 1 John 5:14-15, (This is the assurance we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know He hears us - whatever we ask - we know we have what we ask of Him.)
Remember to stay true to God's word. Because He has the power to perform what He has promised you. Romans 4:20-21 ... I pray for everyone who reads this that their healing will be swift and complete. That the Lord Jesus will guide you into the perfect peace that He has for each of you. That your battles with the Devil will be small and victorious. I also pray that as you receive your healing you will go forth and sing the praises of Jesus. Let the world know that God's word is true and that through Him you are more than a conqueror. Find another who is sick and share God's love.
Your brother in Christ, Ferd Sebastian
