SOME WAYS GOD HEALS ~~
ANOINTING WITH OIL ~
The Prayer of Faith
Is any sick among you?Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him. James 5:14-15
When the oil touches the forehead, the individual releases Faith to receive healing in that moment.
If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything 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. Matthew 18:19-20
The point of contact here is agreement. Make sure you tell those who are praying with you exactly what you want them to agree with you about. If they are praying for one thing and you another, there is no agreement.
LAYING ON OF HANDS ~
And these signs shall follow them that believe; IN MY NAME SHALL THEY LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER. Mark 16:17-18
Many think that only super-spiritual giants of FAITH are involved in this kind of Ministry, but Jesus simply said that any believers who believes can have these kinds of results. In fact, all healthy believers should have these signs following them. That is what this world is crying for today, believers who truly believe God’s Word and act on it.
GIFT OF HEALING ~
For to one is given by the Spirit the Word of WISDOM; to another the word of knowledge by the same spirit; to another FAITH by the same Spirit…but all these worketh that one and the self same Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 1 Corinthians 12:8-9,11
There are Christians who mistakenly believe that if they can just be prayed for by someone with the gifts of healing operating in their ministry, they will be healed. But that is not necessarily the case. They may be healed, but then again they may not. The gifts only operate as the Spirit Divides them.
The gifts of healing operate differently from the other ways God uses to heal. Matthew 7:7, 11 says,
Ask, and it shall be given you; and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth….If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
As believers, we receive by faith what our Father has promised us in HIS WORD, which certainly includes divine healing. This is God’s way of providing healing to the members of the body of Christ.
Through the gifts of healing, people can be healed whether they meet the usual conditions of healing or not, whether they are saved or not, even whether they want to or not. It is as the SPIRIT WILLS.
The gifts of healing are usually a “sign” miracle to show the power, love, and mercy of GOD to those involved directly and to the world in general. The gifts are not subject to the human agents through which they flow. He cannot turn them on or shut them off whenever he wants. We just praise the Lord for what is accomplished as the Holy Spirit does what he wants done.
First Corinthians 14:1 instructs that we should desire spiritual gifts. Without them, WE ARE JUST ANOTHER RELIGION.
WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE IT ~
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, BELIEVE THAT YE RECEIVE THEM, AND YE SHALL HAVE THEM. Mark 11:24. It is understood that what things soever ye desire INCLUDES DIVINE HEALING.
