Never underestimate the power of healing, whether it be your healing or the healing of another in these turbulent days. Healing points to the Messiah. It proves that the God you have been professing all these years is real. It grabs the attention of the unbeliever: “And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did” (Acts 8:6). This is why the enemy fights so hard against this message. He is afraid of the fruit of salvation that is harvested through healing.
Take the limits off God about who can and who cannot be healed. Throughout all these years of ministering healing to people around the world, I stand amazed at just who receives their healing and who doesn’t receive what God has for them. I have witnessed the most rebellious people on the streets receive instant healing, and they are so amazed that in the midst of all their rebellion that someone reached out in the name of Jesus and they were healed.
While ministering on the streets of Guatemala City, a young rebellious teenage boy was screaming obscenities in my husband’s and my face because he hated who we represented–God. But when his freshly broken arm (broken in a gang fight earlier that day) was instantly healed, he stopped his filthiness and listened and heard us give the message of the Lord.
These amazing miracles proclaim loudly the Gospel of Jesus Christ and hail the praise of our Messiah. The hearts of the rebellious are absolutely stunned by the power of grace bestowed upon them as a dead baby in the womb of a young prostitute comes back to life, infected stab wounds are healed, kids with STD are set free from suffering within a moment of time. These miraculous healings confirm our evangelistic words about our loving and living God.
And God is just waiting for us to set our faith in motion on behalf of other people. When we do, great things happen.
How about we take this to your own neighborhood, the street where you live, and start with your next-door neighbor? When you hear that they are sick and dying from cancer, what are you going to do about it? will you take the risk of rejection and reach out in the name of the Lord and share the love of God with them through al healing touch? Do you understand the impact you can start to have all around you in these last days? I am telling you, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by being willing and obedient to the command in the Great Commission.
Let’s read this great commission again and remind ourselves what the Lord would have us do:
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:15-18).
