"Healing is the Will of God" by Dr. John David Kirby
Matthew 4:23-24 "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them."
We see from the Word of God that the ministry of the Lord Jesus included healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. He did not just teach and preach; He also healed ! Again we see that it "is" the will of God to heal. Jesus "only did" the will of the Father. John 8:29 "And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him."
Acts 10:38 "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him."
The Word of God declares that Jesus went about doing good and healing "all" that were oppressed of the devil. This clearly shows us that healing "is" the will of God. Jesus said He "only did" what pleased the Father! He only did His Father’s will! Therefore, if Jesus "only did" what pleased the Father, and He "only did" His Father's will, and He "healed all" that were oppressed of the devil, then obviously, HEALING "IS" THE WILL OF GOD! "PERIOD!" The Bible says that He "only did good"! Therefore we must conclude that healing is good! "Healing is good-or of God, and sickness is bad-or of the devil." Jesus went about doing good and healing! The Bible shows us clearly in Acts 10:38 where sickness comes from, the devil. Jesus healed ALL who were oppressed of the devil. And He "IS" still healing today!
Notice that Matthew 4:23 says that Jesus healed ALL manner of sickness and ALL manner of disease. "There is no sickness or disease that Jesus cannot and will not heal!" You must understand that if it was the will of God to heal then, it "IS" the will of God to heal NOW! If Jesus healed then, He "WILL" heal now! If you will come to Him as multitudes have come to Him, in faith believing, you "WILL" be healed! Cry out to Jesus and know that "He is the same healer “today” as He has always been!" Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever."
Prayer for Healing
I want you to place your hand on your body as we pray together now for your healing. Jesus Himself teaches us in Mark 16:18 …"they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." We are going to pray together “the prayer of agreement” and you "ARE" going to be healed! In Matthew 18:19 and 20 Jesus said "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
Let’s agree together in prayer right now, “believing and receiving” according to God’s Holy Word! Hebrews 4:16 "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
1 John 5:14-15 "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him."
Father God, we enter Your gates with thanksgiving and Your courts with praise. We come by the Blood of Jesus, and we come in the Name of Jesus. Father, I place myself in "Covenant Blood Agreement" with my precious brother or sister praying this prayer with me. In accordance with your Holy Word, Your "Immutable Promise" and "Sworn Oath," Hebrews 6:17-19, we come before You in the Name of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Lord. On the authority of Your Word, and by the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ, we come expecting to receive the complete manifestation of healing, health and life.
Father, I pray that the POWER of the Holy Spirit Himself will flow through my brother or sister right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I command in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ that every foul and unclean spirit of sickness, disease, malady, malfunction and death in and on the body of my brother or sister, to be fully bound and completely cast out now! In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ , I command every sickness, disease, and infirmity to die, dissipate and dematerialize NOW!
Father God, I release my brother or sister from all of the "powers" of darkness in Jesus Name! I release the gifts of healing into my brother or sister now in Jesus Name! I release the working of miracles into my brother or sister now in Jesus Name! I release the healing and miracle virtues of the Lord Jesus Christ into my brother or sister now, in the Name of Jesus Christ! Father God, I fully agree with my brother or sister for the complete manifestation of their miracle and healing to appear right now, in Jesus Name, Amen! We give You Father God, all of the glory and all of the honor, in Jesus Name! Amen!
Thank You Lord Jesus for bearing stripes on your back for their miracle and healing! We give You glory and praise for healing and delivering them NOW! Thank You Lord Jesus! We worship and adore You! I command you now my friend, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to rise and be healed!
Word of Encouragement
I want to encourage you to begin to "do what you could not do." Just do it by faith! Jesus said "According to your faith be it unto you." (Matthew 9:29) Don’t think about it, don’t think about doing it, "JUST DO IT!" If you couldn’t move a part of your body, "move it now!" If you could not stand, "stand up now!" If you could not walk, "walk now!" Whatever you could not do before, "DO IT NOW!" Lay claim to YOUR healing right now! I encourage you to act on the Word of God! James 1:22 says, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” Put action to your faith and step out of the boat! I encourage you to keep praising and thanking the Lord for what He "HAS" done for you! Jesus said, "IT IS FINISHED!" (John 19:30) That IS the Word of the Lord for YOU now!
Remember, you "ARE" what GOD says you are, not what man says you are! God says, "You are healed!"
Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
I Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
Go forth now as "the healed of the Lord," and keep on praising and thanking God "everyday" for what He "HAS" done for YOU today! Tell some one what the Lord has done for you! TESTIFY to the miracle power of the Lord Jesus Christ, and be His witness in the earth today!
