All that is needed is the disciple of healingto be an instrument. He or she does not get power from theological studies or academic degrees. It is Jesus that has the power and who accomplishes all the work: “it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. “Galatians 2:20 It was the same with all the great saints in the world, who had become so totally preoccupied with Jesus, that they forgot all the things that were wrong in their life.
Prayer is a gift from God.To cooperate with the gift of healing, one must be disciplined to give time for prayer. A healing disciple must be very connected. Some spend three hours a day before the Lord. Jesus wants no less than an hour for Himself.
When healing prayers are said over the phone, even on the other side of the world, by a disciple of healing, the person being prayed for can be completely healed. Jesus is not confined to one place. God is everywhere and His prayer is limitless; there is not distance for Him.
The short answer is Yes, but through the Disciple of Healing. Those disciples can be found in healing prayer groups that meet in church basements during the week. Often those disciples may only have a small inkling that they have been blessed with a gift of healing.
Overdoses involving prescription painkillers are at epidemic levels and now kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.
The number of people killed by drug poisoning, driven by large increases of painkiller abuse, surpassed motor vehicle fatalities for the first time.
Oxycontin, formally known as Percodan, allows the time released capsules to be absorbed all at once!
ADDICTION AND DELIVERANCE
One can be laden with all sorts of addiction. These include: alcohol, cigarettes, masturbation just to add a few. This addiction must be dealt with on a spiritual level. Casting out demons is the only way to get rid of these demons that drive the person to do these things in the first place. The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.Continue reading OXYCODONE KILLS 2→
We are all spiritually powerless and not just those physically addicted to a substance Some Twelve Steppers settled for mere sobriety from a substance instead of a real transformation of the self.
Usually, there is little removal of most defects of character. We would rather be ruined than changed. Our inability to see our personal failures is paralleled by our need for deliverance. You cannot heal what you need delivered;what will remain in control of you is from within, festering and destroying you and those around you..
We all seem to be guilty of craving something that we cannot have. Some of us refuse to let go of these cravings.
CHANGING THE WAY WE LOOK AT LIFE
It takes a deep sense of humility to change long established attitudes.Egos are at work here. Your ego must be tamed. The power to be more selfless comes from the power of God. “The Kingdom is within you.” Luke 17:21
When we stop fighting against those things that can’t be changed, contentment becomes a possibility. Hope and openness enable us to see our possibilities. Without hope, there is no growth in our communion with God and with others.
LET GO AND LET GOD.
The AA saying at Alcohol Anonymous is “Let go and let God.” We relinquish our concerns into the Hands of God so that we can live our lives without energy-depleting fear. Unreasonable fear is a terrible enemy. Many of us try to be in total control of our lives, and we discover that the results are disastrous.
You can be so bogged down with a problem that you lose your creative energy to find your way out of it.
There is no promise that storms won’t be part of our lives. But there is a promise that we won’t navigate through them by ourselves:”Trust in the Lord forever; He will always protect us.” Isaiah 26:3, 4
Could we actually believe that saying yes to God would bring us harm? It will bring us gain and not loss.
The key to our growth is our willingness to leave some space for God to do His work within us. We have hope because we know that we are loved.
One can be laden with all sorts of addiction. These include: alcohol, cigarettes, masturbation just to add a few. These addictions must be dealt with on a spiritual level. There is a very close cause and effect related to alcoholics in need of deliverance.
WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?
Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Peter 5:8,9
All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’” Luke 10:17
DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?
To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:
Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
Jesus Himself did not emphasize the miraculous; He saw physical healing as an ordinary aspect of what He called “works“, rather than miracles: a form of Good News in action. Healing of the spirit, emotion and body was all part of the message of salvation. So the apostles preached by healing and this continues today.
Most people don’t know that God want to heal them:
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. ” 3 John 1:2
“They were anointed by the Holy Spirit with power; because God was within them, they cured all who had fallen into the power of the devil. “So the kingdom of God is not just words: it is power.1 Corinthians 4:19,20It is power to transform lives. It is Good News
Too many Christians are broken. They are so broken that they cannot carry out the commandment to love God and their neighbor. Their inner turmoil prevents them from following God’s will.
Paradoxically, they may believe that this illness or brokenness is part of God’s will.So they don’t pray for a release for what God wants of them.
There is a mistaken belief, that you should carry your cross, as Jesus did. Jesus does say to bear your cross, yet whenever He meets people who are sick, He cures them. This inconsistency can be explained by describing this cross as a cross of persecution, which comesoutsideof man.
The words healing and peace are synonymouswith each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling.
Physical sickness in our bodies is caused by disease or accident. Sickness may simply be a message to you to keep your life in balance. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing. These states often create illness. The word “dis-ease” means without ease. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance.
We must use the natural means of preserving health. Physicians are instruments that are ordinarily used to bring about healing for trauma. Psychology helps to bring problems to the light for what they are. One can administer to the body the necessary supplements and the body will heal itself to an extent. Surgeons can physically repair the body.But the miracle of healing is still by Jesus’ stripes (whippings).
WHAT EFFECT DOES EVIL SPIRITS HAVE ON DISEASE?
Migraine headaches can be triggered by guilt (self-hatred) first, resulting from conflict in your life and then fear. Cancer is a diseaseof themind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.Anger, un-forgiveness and bitternessput the body into a stressful and acidic environment.
Relationship between Healing & Deliverance
We all our born with a sinful nature. This sometimes gives the devil a foot hold into our lives. People need to be delivered from this hold of Satan.
There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick. They are obstacles to healing. The sins of the paralytic was the cause of the illness, so the first thing that Jesus did was to forgive his sins. Matthew 9:2
Jesus accomplished two things: “Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons …” Mark 1: 34. Some people simply need healing from the diseases that have made them sick; others need deliverance from the spirits that have made them sick.
Demons are subservient to anyone who has the authority to release these demons. Satan kept his power, but he doesn’t have any authority over God’s power. Satan’s power can only be broken in the Name of Jesus. Jesus gave this authority back to us, especially to those who have been given the gift of deliverance.
We shouldn’t ignore the role demons may play regarding sickness and the demonic signs:
The most common way that discernment works is through a “knowing” that something is there.
It is demonic if the sickness affects the spiritual life of the sick. Physically ill people get furious at preaching. In cases where the sick are not experiencing more spiritual growth but getting bitter, angry, and more sinful, then their sickness has a demonic root.
It is demonic if there are strange occurrences, which doctors often cannot explain or cure.
We are not saying that every disease is caused by a demon. It’s not that common to find illness that’s only totally “natural” or one that’s only totally “demonic”. There’s almost always an interaction between the two. There is a need for both natural healing and demonic healing.
Those who were possessed by evil spirits can be healed. “They cast out many devils, and anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.” Mark 6:13
What is the difference between exorcism and deliverance?
Exorcism is exercised in case of possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.These demons of possessionidentify themselves by a title: Say “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command you evil spirit, to identify yourself: ” Who are you?”
Deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. Deliverance is a prayer of freeing a person oppressed by evil spirits, which is relatively common occurrence. It can be described as a part of one’s body, which is under the control of the enemy, e.g. a compulsion such as drug addiction.
The first step is for the minister of healing to pray that the power of the blood of Jesus surround and protect every person in the room: “In the name of Jesus, I pour the blood of Jesus in this room and on everyone in this room.”
It starts with questions about “when did all this start?”,“Do you have any idea why this started?”
Deliverance requires that the minister of deliverance name the evil spirits by their function. These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay.
The demons who entered through spiritualism or the occult, are principle demons: they should be driven out first, otherwise they will block any other deliverance.
Several of the spirits sometimes surface and block the prayer of deliverance, so the minister of deliverance prays: “In the name of Jesus, I command all evil spirits residing in you to be quiet and not give you any evil thoughts.” The client need not hear this prayer.
Sometimes it is wise to help by asking the tormented person to cast out the demons themselves: “Say: Get out! Cough it out!” If this becomes too exhibitionistic, one can command the evil spirits to be quiet.
FILLING THE VACUUM
Often there is a sense of freedom and joy associated with the deliverance and healing: it’s like the lifting of a weight or pain.
Anything left empty by the departure of the demons should be filled by the presence of Jesus. There should be a prayer immediately after the deliverance to fill the person with God’s love and grace.The client should be taught to break the habitual behavior patterns which originally led to the demonic infestation: “I command evil spirits of … to leave me now, in the name of Jesus Christ.Thank you, Jesus. Praise you, Jesus.”
The person delivered must now thank Godfor the spiritual healing every day until the total healinghas taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it.
One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the biography of Jesus in the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John.
Ideally, the person should then become part of a Christian community supportfor the same reason that alcoholics are asked to become members of Alcoholic Anonymous. The client’s new Christian friends will help one put one’s life into balance.
LONG DISTANCE HEALING
Long distance healing is possibleas demonstrated by the centurion, who had a wide channel of self-sacrificial faith and who surprised Jesus: “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” Matthew 8:10
People, who have a prayer list,and have been sincerely praying will have their prayers answered by a minister of healing in the Name of Jesus Christ.This includes any form of healing from addiction.
This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessorand with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.
Deep seated refusal to grant honor (not unbelief) prevented Jesus from exercising His power in His own hometown. So the lack of honor hold the power to restrain God’s Hand. Where people withhold honor from one another, God restrains His Hand.
God works through those practicing medicine: the doctor, the counselor and the psychiatrist are all ministers of healing: “Then give the doctor his place lest he leave; for you need him too. There are times that give him an advantage, and he too beseeches God that his diagnosis may be correct and his treatment bring about a cure.”Sirach 38:12-14
FAITH IN HEALING
There are those who are especially anointed with the ministry of healing, although every believer ought to have a ministry of healing.Christ is the one who does the healing, and upon occasion, He can work through the prayers of any Christian. “Everything is possible for anyone who believes.” Mark 9:23God wants to share the Holy Spirit with everyone. Every believer ought to take the Word of God to a sick person.
Jesus did not heal all the people of the land: only the ones that came to Him. If one senses that this could be a divine appointment, one can simply ask or say:
“Do you want to be healed?”
“Is it okay to pray for you?”
“Jesus loves you and wants you to be healed.”
DELIVERANCE in the BIBLE
“That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” Philippians 2:10
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me.” Luke 4:18“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES
A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.
“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Luke 10:19“The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” 1 John 3:8
HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of physical peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered. You definitely know something has happened.
To our non-Christian friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness:
The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. You may be in for a big surprise. We do not know how the Holy Spirit will act. He may grant a healing in order to provide you with a surprise. I t may force you to acknowledge its true Source, Jesus Christ. You will only know by accepting prayers of healing and deliverance: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.
There is no one in any non-Christian religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are obliterated only in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance.
The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during “OUR PART“: “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.
The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.
Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord: Free in Jesus
This prayer of deliverance can be printed, quartered and kept in your wallet.
Prayer of Deliverance
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU
“I love you.
I have great power to help you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who follow Me. I have great power to bring about all that I desire. I did many miraculous deeds when I was on earth such as bringing the dead to life, giving sight to the blind and helping the lame to walk.
I am still today chasing away evil spirits from the people who are possessed. Those to whom I gave the power can call upon Me and I will liberate those possessed. There are possessed people in every country and they need to be freed. People are possessed because they have done terrible acts against Me and therefore were taken over by those evil spirits.
I call you all to remain close to Me if you want to be free of evil spirits. Never take part in such sects as New Age or do riki. These are of the devil and those who take part in this will be possessed. So never have anything to do with New Age or riki. I bless you all.”
