3-6-12 6:18pm Isaiah 57:1 and 2 records: "The righteous perish and no man lays it to heart and men of loving kindness are taken away, no one considering that the righteous one is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace;they should rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness."
When we are praying for healing for a person, we do not know if You are wanting to spare someone from evil to come. Holy Lord Jesus, in this I see another reason why we should hear or see You before we pray for anyone, following Your example for us (John 5:19, 20, 30).
Ben, this is another great truth of Mine. I am tired of My people doing their own thing to please or appease Me. I want My people to seek My face for everything, and I do mean everything. When people follow My example, they too will receive heavenly results in My timing and in My will. Encourage My people to do as I do, for as I have told you in the Scriptures, you shall do even greater works than I did (John 14:12). And this is how you do it - you first see Me or hear Me before you venture forth in My kingdom.
