Compassion, which involves forgiving yourself and others is crucial to releasing God's healing power (Matt. 11:24-26; 14:14).

Healing Is One of the Benefits Provided to God’s Children

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all my iniquities, Who heals all my diseases (Ps. 103:2,3)

God’s Kingdom Is Extended as People Are Saved, Delivered and Healed

If I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. (Matt. 12:28)

You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. (Acts 10:38)

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matt. 9:35)

Old Covenant Healing Promises Are Reaffirmed in Christ Jesus and to His Followers

For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes. (2 Cor. 1:20)

And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. (Matt. 10:1)

So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. (Lk. 9:6)

And as you go, preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. (Matt. 10:7,8)

Heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you.” (Lk. 10:9)

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 lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
(Mk. 16:15-18)

The Manifest Anointing to Heal:

And the power of the Lord was present to heal them (Lk. 5:17).

So we ask for the Holy Spirit’s healing presence to come upon us.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. (1 Jn. 5:14, 15)

Faith Is Heaven’s Currency:

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Heb. 11:6)

Receive Faith as a Gift:

So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God.” (Mk. 11:22). Literally “Have God’s faith” so lay your hand on your heart and speak to it saying, “Faith, arise!”

Be Relaxed and Childlike:

Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." (Mk. 10:15)

Get a Rhema Word from the Lord:

He sent His word and healed them. (Ps. 107:20)

Faith Comes Through Hearing God Speak into Your Heart:

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word (Greek is “rhema” = “spoken word”) of Christ. (Rom 10:17)

Speak to the Sickness:

I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. (Mk. 11:23,24)

Be Aggressive:

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matt. 11:12)

Be Persistent:

Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. (Heb. 10:35,36)

Be Compassionate and Loving:

Jesus felt compassion for them and healed their sick. (Matt. 14:14)

faith working through love. (Gal. 5:6) 

Satan Defeated:

The Son of God appeared … to destroy the works of the devil. (1 Jn. 3:8)

Continuous Expansion:

Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end (Isa. 9:7), which means satan’s government continues to shrink until it comes to an end!!!

The Earth Filled:

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD (Hab. 2:14)!

Increase the Anointing by Seeing God’s Power Extending and Destroying Satan’s Kingdom

His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding of His power. (Hab. 3:4)

He (Jesus) is the radiance of His glory (Heb. 1:3)

The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. (Lk. 10:17,18)

"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. (Matt. 6:22)

See God’s Power Being Released Through Your Touch

Wherever He entered villages, or cities, or countryside, they were laying the sick in the market places, and imploring Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were being cured. (Mk. 6:56)

You are Free to Repeat a Healing Prayer Three to Four Times in a Row

Jesus prayed twice in a row for the blind man (Mk. 8:23-25), Elijah prayed 7 times in a row and ended a drought (1 Kings 18:42-44 & James 5:16,17)

Biblical Meditation Causes Our Hearts to Burn as He Opens Scriptures (Lk. 24:32)

We are to meditate on God's Word day and night  (Josh. 1:8).  Faith grows as one meditates on Scripture. Here is a simple 7 step biblical meditation process

  1. Write the verse out, memorize it.
  2. Quiet down and tune to the Holy Spirit's flow.
  3. Picture and mutter the verse softly with your eyes closed.
  4. Let Spirit flow guide your reasoning process.
  5. Journal and record God’s illumination concerning the verse.
  6. Feel and record God's heart toward you through the verse.
  7. Act in obedience on what God reveals and speaks.

A Sample Meditation from Isa. 53:4,5!

1) Our griefs He Himself bore, 2) Our sorrows He carried; 3) He was pierced through for our transgressions, 4) He was crushed for our iniquities; 5) The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and 6) By His scourging we are healed! (Isa. 53:4-5 )

Two-way Journaling: You will note that I healed you from the inside out. First I have taken all your emotional burdens, your griefs and sorrows. Then I have dealt with your sins, both the "hidden" iniquities in your heart, and the outer visible transgressions that can be seen. Next I have taken away any chastisement which the law said may be due you because of your sins and  transgressions. God will no longer punish you for these sins and transgressions. Finally I deal with bringing healing to your physical body, which I can do through an instant miracle of transformation, or a process of curing you of the disease. Either way is fine, and I use both ways. 

So you will note that I have provided healing for you through and through. From the inside to the outside. The one category which remains is the normal, natural consequence of one's sin. This is not my punishment, this is simply the natural laws of the universe in operation. One must eat a healthy diet, exercise, laugh, forgive, express joy and peace and contentment, for each of these is healing, and each of the opposites contribute to poor health. So these natural laws are still in operation, and have not been removed by what I purchased at Calvary through the death of my Son, Jesus Christ.

Picture Jesus’ sacrifice at Calvary and speak these resulting blessings over yourself which He purchased for you.

Jesus took my...

  • Griefs – emotional suffering & pain
  • Sorrows – regret - what could have been
  • Transgressions – outer sinful acts
  • Iniquities – hidden sins of the heart
  • Chastening – punishment deserved
  • Sickness – physical weakness/disease
