HEALING TRADITION

There are some Christians that claim that the basic nature of human beings is sinful. It is the human tendency to rebel against, ignore, or resist God’s will. This makes human beings susceptible to illness. In a sense, a person can actually own his or her sickness or take responsibility for it. So illness is often linked to life style, which has moral overtones. The word, “disease” says it all: it means “without ease” or stress.

CAUSES OF SICKNESS

There are two principal theological interpretations of sickness and healing:

  1. Sickness is caused by forces or spirits opposed to God out of sheer perverseness. The devil wishes to thwart the divine plan for humankind. So illness is not the fault of the sick person. This is the view that Jesus took 2000 years ago.
  2. Sickness is caused by God for different reasons. Sickness may be used to teach a person a lesson of faith. It may be used as a test so that a person can provide an example of faith for others as in the case of Job.

The sick person is understood to have earned the illness. The real aim of the sickness may be to change or moderate the nature of a person’s life.

The charismatic healers know very little or nothing about medical science and did not practice elaborate therapy. Most of these healers belong to the “holy person” category. They never ask for any fees for healing.

HEALING WORDS

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Healing-traditions.jpg

There are no elaborate rituals or complicated techniques. The healing is done by touch or command in the Name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ in the same manner as Jesus healed. A healer may use a general prayer such as, “May the mercy of God, which is present here with us now, enter into your soul, your mind, your body, and heal you from all that harms you”  By Your stripes (whippings) Lord Jesus, you,             , are healed!  These last few words are the most important and they are based on the Bible: “With His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 and “by whose stripes you were healed.”                                                                                                                                              1 Peter 2:24

For specific healing, the words to use can be, “Send Your power right now into this baby’s ears and take away all germs or infection and make them well”. Some healers speak directly to evil spirits: “You spirit of disease, I command you in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, to come out of this boy,_______.”

THE HEALING

God is not restricted in any way. Addictions of all sorts can also be healed just as terminal cases of cancer.

Most healers believe that it is God’s intention for people to be healthy. But if a person is alienated from God, closed to God’s grace, one can block God’s healing power. That is why most prominent faith healers have an altar call as an act of making a commitment to God for spiritual renewal. The healing call becomes a healing line where the healer only spends a few moments with each person in the healing line. People who need healing are asked to repent of their sins and dedicate their lives to Jesus.

The healing of sickness can relate to a divine scheme or purpose. “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16 There is a reference to confessing one’s sins as a healing act. So healing is clearly related to moral improvement, penance, and willingness to correct one’s behavior.

Healing is usually an incidental part of their lives, something that they themselves did not encourage, and became to them as a surprise. It had become a by-product of their religious lives or holy personalities.

HEALING MINISTRIES

Most healing is done in small, local groups in unspectacular, undramatic fashion. Meetings involving healing may be independent of any regular church service or ritual, or they may be tied to such services right after the normal Sunday service. One prayer for such a service reads:” Father, may this oil, which you have blessed for our use, produce its healing effect, in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.”

This is based on the biblical accounts of the early church. Sometimes the healing is done by laypersons who claim no special healing powers. In fact, it is a given by God to all human beings. It only has to be recognized and cultivated in order to become effective.

Prayers are accompanied be an absolute faith in God’s healing power. Healing may be physical but healing of the spiritual body is first and foremost. The intent is that the healed person be renewed spiritually as well. So healing is understood to necessitate a renewed commitment to God.

FAITH AND HEALING

What kind of faith thinking is needed?  Do you think that healing is possible, but it is extraordinary? Do you think it is ordinary, but it doesn’t always take place? No! Do you think that healing takes place if there is enough faith? Yes!!  Jesus never refused anyone healing.

Our part in healing is to accept, decide and affirm our healing gifts. Let us say that you feel a flu coming on. You simply rebuke the spirit of illness by way of affirming your gift. Try it — it works!

Faith leaves no doubts about God’s power to heal and about His desire to heal. In some cases, a person without faith is healed; God may wish to help these people to receive faith, which they don’t have.

Lack of faith and trust in God is said to be a problem. Self-centeredness, indifference to others, hatred of others, jealousy and other problems related to personal relationship needs healing and deliverance. Healing of memories, abuse, trauma and fear all need to be bind and delivered away from a person before healing.

Most prominent faith healers like Oral Roberts, are masters at arousing intense faith and expectation in those attending their services. For example, “Miracles are going to happen in this place tonight. “or “ the Power of God is going to touch you tonight.”

Some healers claim that they have received the gift of knowledge and they can perceive the nature of a person’s sickness. Kathryn Kuhlman was one of those who could discern a miraculous healing in her audience.

HEALING AND PRAYER

Prayer can become an important starting point for healing. God will arrange a divine appointment with a Christian healer, which would not have happened had it not been for prayers from caring parents or family.

After everyone is blessed, there is period of silent prayer, the saying of the Lord’s Prayer, and a final prayer of healing such as: “Lord Jesus, I praise you and thank you for Your healing”.

HEALING AND MEDICAL DOCTORS

Finally, there is no conflict between medical and spiritual healing. There are those healers who wrongly imply that putting faith in a medical doctor shows a lack of faith in God.

IS ANYONE AMONG YOU SICK?

“Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”                        James 5:14, 15

One must focus on the promises of God: “Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature.” 2 Peter 1:4 One must hope in His mercy and His sure healing; be full of praise and thankful for His healing as it begins to take place “From Jesus, who is risen with healing in His wings.” Malachi 4:2: “Lord Jesus, I praise You and I thank You for Your healing.” God actually wants to heal us. God is compassionate and doesn’t wish you to suffer.

The practice of medicine and the practice of healing through faith have exactly the same intentions and stem from the same understanding of God’s will. God has given us life and we have a right and duty to preserve it for as long as God permits it to remain.

Every Christian can share in the healing ministry, but some Christians have a special calling to that work. The first way of appropriating faith is the laying on of hands by the faith healer. Immediately after prayers the healer will usually ask one to check out the healing by doing something that one was not able to do before if it involved muscles.

It is essential that we draw upon the Holy Spirit for healing. The healing minister is changed from powerless to “power-full” through the power of the Holy Spirit.

EMOTIONAL CAUSE OF PHYSICAL HEALING

One can experience a series of difficult experiences until one day one problem is the “straw that breaks the camel’s back”. Studies indicate that it takes two years for this situation to cause physical healing. In fact, there are doctors who claim that 90% of all physical ailments derive from emotional cause. The word, “disease” says it all: “dis- ease”  or “without–ease” means stress. This two year period is illustrated in the Bible and it is called, “the root of bitterness”. Healing Ministers know to ask what transpired in one’s life two years prior to the onslaught of a physical ailment.

HEALING AND EVIL SPIRITS

The devil in the scheme of things wishes to turn us against God. Some healers combat sickness by casting out evil spirits as Jesus did. They attribute most diseases to demons. One such healer, A. A. Allen, claimed that demons have “filled the insane asylums, penitentiaries and courts to over capacity.” He claimed that almost all of Jesus’ healings involved exorcism of demons. Immorality and sinful actions make one vulnerable to a demonic attack.

The healed person may still continue to be vulnerable from the evil spirits (some habits are hard to break):  he or she should be further protected by reading Psalm 91 daily, especially when one feels under attack, which include these lines:

“You will not fear the terror of night,
             nor the arrow that flies by day …                                                                      If you say, “The LORD is my Refuge,”
             and you make the Most High your dwelling…                                      For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in                 all your ways”                                                                                                                 “Because He loves Me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;  I will                 protect him, for he acknowledges My name.
 He will call on Me, and I will answer him;
            I will be with him in trouble,
            I will deliver him and honor him.
 With long life I will satisfy him
            and show him My salvation.”

WORD OF GOD HEALING

People who experience healing learn that their healing was possible because of what happened 2000 years ago: that by Jesus’ stripes (flogging) and according to the Word, they have been healed. “He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14   They acted upon this Word and ignored what the body was telling them that the symptoms and pain was still there. They learned to walk by Bible faith.

Conversely, there are people who continually return to the praying team for healing, they are not aware that the healing has already been done in heaven. What is generally missing is their all important continual praise and thanksgiving for the healing, which is the proof of one’s faith.

WORD OF GOD HEALING

 Some cures were almost immediate especially for the people who lacked faith.  This is done to bring about a change in these people’s faith. 

In other cases, cures came more slowly.  This was evident in cases where someone possessed a strong faith.  The slower cure presented that person with an opportunity to grow closer to God by sharing His Passion on the Cross.  

Usually this gift of healing from God is given to those who do evangelical or missionary work. The missionary must be given the tools or gifts in order to do the necessary healing.

A FAITH PRAYER

The person delivered and healed must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance and healing has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it (a minimum of once a day) by a FAITH breath prayer until the healing takes place; it is only 12 words:

LORD JESUS, I PRAISE YOU AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEALING.

Are there any physical signs to know you are being healed?

Father Francis MacNutt stated in his book Healing that “Some people experience the same electrical transfer of power, sometimes a like a gentle electric current, sometimes like a flow of warmth. Whatever it is, it is sometimes connected with healing. It is almost like a transfer of life”. (182)

If there are few signs of healing, a Prayer of Deliverance is needed in order to eliminate any obstacles.

PRAYER DELIVERANCE

An accompanying prayer of deliverance, said by a sinless Born Again Christian, usually results with a feeling of a complete sense of peace. This gives assurance that God is working.

WORD OF GOD HEALING

We are not worried about your present behavior. It is more important to change your beliefs about who God is and who you are in Christ.

Some don’t understand the dramatic changes which occur in themselves the moment they trust in God. Because you are in Christ, every one of these characteristics are true of you:

PHYSICAL EMOTIONAL HEALING

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

REMAIN CLOSE TO ME.


PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL HEALING ASSURED

“When I was on earth I healed many people and even brought the dead back to life. I gave the Apostles that same power and they healed many people during their ministry. St. Paul also healed many sick people and even raised the dead to life. These great healings, which are continuing even today, are brought about by divine power. When you see those great healings be assured that you are seeing the power of God at work. This comes about because I have great compassion for the sick and I want every person to believe in Me, your Lord and Savior.

I have used you, Joseph Melvin, to heal many people. Some have been healed from cancer, paralysis, very sore back and with My power you have healed the eyes of people and restored their hearing. Others threw away their crutches after being prayed with as their legs had been healed. Some have left their wheelchairs and started to walk. There have been many other healing of all kinds. This is to prove that indeed Our Dearest Mother has visited you and all should believe in Her messages given to you.

There is something very important coming and I want all of you, My dear friends, to be alert and to return to Me and follow Me. You need to repent of all your sins and be an example of a loving follower of mine. Remain close to Me.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

OBSTACLES TO PHYSICAL HEALING

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” 
  • Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

  Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Jesus God

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.                                                                                                                                              Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was so that He could suffer in the flesh, take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.    Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.

IS GOD THERE?

There is an intellectual atheism based on modern philosophy; a protest atheism, which insisted on the incompatibility of belief in God with human freedom and fulfillment; and a pessimistic atheism, which sees in the enormity of evil prevalent in the world an overwhelming argument against the existence of God.

As a Gallup poll of 1975 shows, in only 6 percent of all Americans questioned claimed to be atheists or agnostics; 94 percent believed in God and 69 percent in life after death — about the same percentages as in 1948.

But while many pay lip service to the existence of God, it seems true that many have experienced the death of God insofar as traditional images of God no longer make sense for them. They feel God’s absence, rather than His presence.

In the last century, God dwelt there with hosts of angels and directed earthly affairs: bringing good and bad weather, sickness and health, happiness and unhappiness.

After being gradually undermined for several years by accumulating scientific knowledge, this cozy picture has all but vanished from human consciousness.

If we can’t think of God, then, as some kind of absolute monarch ruling the universe from above, how should we think of Him?

Allow us to speak of an ultimate reality that is somehow “beyond” that which is directly given in our experience and our own ultimate limit.

All of us are constantly running up against limits, which are basically of four kinds: a) external physical limitation caused by material objects which can restrict our activities; b ) organic limitations we experience when we suffer illness, weakness and exhaustion; c ) personal limitations in our dealings with others insofar as their ideas and intentions often run counter to our own ; d ) restrictions related to our awareness of moral and aesthetic considerations such as the distinction between good and bad, beautiful and ugly.

Through this experience of our own finiteness we become aware.

How, then, can we conceptualize this ultimate limit?

The only experience we have is of our bare finiteness.

An encounter with God will involve both the ‘experience’ of our finitude and the faith which, points to some dynamic reality beyond the limit.

God as the ultimate limit, God as He is Himself, is thus profound mystery, which is completely beyond our grasp or comprehension.

Only on the ground that God had in fact revealed himself could it be claimed He exists.

The One Who is Creator of the world, Who by His providence guides and sustains and directs all things to their intended purpose. “God” means the Lord, the One Whom we must serve and obey,

He is our final End and Source of eternal happiness. He is also the Father Who loves His children, faithful, forgiving and at the same time absolutely just.

For the believer, He is the most real of all:

A believer finds in the symbol “God” the means of seeing life as a purposeful experience and a way of viewing the world as imbued with a personal presence. It enables one to feel at home in the world insofar as it is ruled with order and purpose.

As long as one stays on a purely metaphysical or speculative level it seems impossible that we will ever be able to answer this question with any certainty.

From Dynamic Catholicism: A Historical Catechism Bokenkotter, Thomas.

WHAT IS RELIGION?

Religion is man’s search: for strength and courage to be gained from the spiritual, which is greater than any individual man. It is the Power beyond our control and upon whom we feel ourselves dependent.

The mind and will of God exists outside man, which is superior to all men. Man attempts to get in touch with His spirituality. Once contact is made (by listening) man desires to live in harmony with God. This contact operates by grace and flourishes by prayer.

THE MYSTERY OF RELIGION

Religion deals not in problems but in mysteries. A mystery may be difficult or impossible to understand, but you are still passionate about and involved in.

Such passionate makes clear, objective thinking difficult, and being involved in a problem means one’s perspective is limited. One way to solve such mysteries is to rely on faith.

A DIVINE CHURCH

Suppose the Church were not divine but only human. Suppose she were our invention. Suppose the Church, unlike Christ, had only one nature, not two: that she was only human, not divine, and as “modernist” or “liberal” or “humanist” theology claims about Christ.

In that case we ourselves would have to figure out the right understanding of scripture, without divine authority. We would have to discover the truth about the Trinity, and the two natures of Christ, and baptism, and the Eucharist, and saints, and Mary, and Purgatory, and the Church herself, and crucial and controversial moral issues like abortion and marriage and homosexuality and euthanasia and contraception and war and capital punishment and money.

Under this supposition, who could ever know with certainty the will of God? And how could the Church ever be one? There are actually twenty thousand different churches or ten main-line protestant denominations, each teaching its own sincere but fallible human opinion. It is hard to believe that God would want His Church to split into so many pieces.

You Can’t Just Be Spiritual; You Need Religion.

 DIVINE CHURCH

Many people say, “I’m spiritual, but not religious.” On one hand, you can be happy that you are seeking a deeper meaning in their life. On the other hand, you should be worried that you will stay satisfied there. Spirituality is what you believe and how you find meaning in regards to a higher Power while religion is how I live out the truth and what is right in regards to a higher Power. In religion:

  1. We can gain an intimate knowledge of Christ.
  2. We are better protected from evil so as not to misinterpret Scriptures.
  3. We need a Christian community for encouragement and support.

ONE CHRISTIAN GOD

We Christians (of all flavors) are under greater attack now that at many or most times in the past, from atheists, secularists, Islamists and others. It would therefore seem to be in our best interests to put aside whatever our differences are or have been in the past and try our best to become what Jesus asked for…that we may all be one.

Even if all religions are true, even profoundly true, this does not mean that all religions are totally true (free from error) or equally true. For only one religion centers on the only sane man who ever claimed to be the TRUTH.

ONE DIVINE CHURCH

No other religious teacher – except some egomaniacs, fakers, tyrants and money-mad manipulators – claimed to be God. Any other religion except Christianity could survive without its founder after making such a claim.

 If Abraham or Moses or Muhammad or Buddha or Confucius or Lao Tzu turned out to be mythical figures and not real historical people at all, the religions that they founded would still survive, just as Shakespeare’s plays would still retain their power and appeal if it were discovered that Shakespeare never existed, that the name was a pseudonym for Marlowe or Bacon. But Christianity could not survive if Christ was a fictional figure. You can’t be saved by a fictional or a dead savior.”

HAVE YOU BEEN HURT BY A CHURCH?

The Church often wounds us deeply. People with religious authority often wound us by their words, attitudes, and demands. Precisely because our religion brings us in touch with the questions of life and death, our religious sensibilities can get hurt most easily. Ministers and priests seldom fully realize how a critical remark, a gesture of rejection, or an act of impatience can be remembered for life by those to whom it is directed.

There is such an enormous hunger for meaning in life, for comfort and consolation, for forgiveness and reconciliation, for restoration and healing, that anyone who has any authority in the Church should constantly be reminded that the best word to characterize religious authority is compassion. Let’s keep looking at Jesus whose authority was expressed in compassion.

When we have been wounded by the Church, our temptation is to reject it. But when we reject the Church it becomes very hard for us to keep in touch with the living Christ. When we say, “I love Jesus, but I hate the Church,” we end up losing not only the Church but Jesus too.

The challenge is to forgive the Church. This challenge is especially great because the Church seldom asks us for forgiveness, at least not officially. But the Church as an often fallible human organization needs our forgiveness, while the Church as the living Christ among us continues to offer us forgiveness.

It is important to think about the Church not as “over there” but as a community of struggling, weak people of whom we are part and in whom we meet our Lord and Redeemer.                  HENRI NOUWEN

WHY SO MANY RELIGIONS?

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“Live by following the Holy Spirit.”                               Galatians 5:16

“The true children of God are those who let God’s Holy Spirit lead them.”                                                                                    Romans 8:14

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

To simplify this, the Holy Spirit is the Presence of God in our lives, carrying on the work of Jesus. The Holy Spirit grants us all the fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23.(“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”). If the disciple teaches, it is the Holy Spirit that teaches the disciple. Luke 12:12 (“For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”)

If the listener is convicted, it is because the Holy Spirit has penetrated. John 16:10 (“Concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see Me no longer”) If the listener is converted, it by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:11 (“He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”)

If the new believer matures, it is because the Holy Spirit makes him or her more competent. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own.”                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”                                                                                                                                                          John 14:16-17

How have you seen the Holy Spirit at work in your own life?

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT?

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“As I (Peter)began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.  Acts 11:15,16  There are four different ways, which can be used by the minister of baptism:

  1. Laying on of hands: “they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. ” Acts19: 2-6
  2. Praying : “When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. ”                            Acts 8:15,16
  3. Speaking: “While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.”                   Acts 10:44-45
  4. Breathing: Jesus commanded that the disciples receive the Holy Spirit, “And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”                                            John 20:22

The most important part of the rite is that the person being baptized in the Holy Spirit be in acceptance:  ” I receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”

CONTEMPLATION AND SCRIPTURES 2

CONTEMPLATIONWe simply have to find a quiet place and a straight chair and sit in a relaxed position. We close our eyes and begin to repeat the name of Jesus in a seven word breath prayer that  you find meaningful until we are completely focused on Him. 

Then we surrender to Him and allow Him to do whatever He wishes. We simply absorb all His love, His peace and joy. We let Him be in charge for the duration of the prayer.

If a distraction comes, we gently return to repeating the name of Jesus until the distraction goes away, and continue our surrender to Him. We must not expect anything but accept whatever the Lord gives us. This is a prayer of the heart and Jesus will communicate in the center of our heart. Remember He is free, and be patient.

If you have not contemplated before, just read the book on contemplative prayer and begin contemplating for 10 minutes.  Once you are comfortable with 10 minutes, you can add a few more minutes until your prayer lasts 20 minutes. Contemplative prayer should last 20 to 30 minutes at a time.

Almost every person can contemplate and even children as young as 12 years of age can profitably contemplate for 10 or more minutes.

Remember that contemplative prayer is a gift from God. Prayer is very dear to Jesus. It makes our relationship with Him grow continuously.

 PRAYING: MEDITATION AND CONTEMPLATION

Without that still space we start spinning. We become driven people, running all over the place without much direction. But with that stillness God can be our gentle guide in everything we think, say, or do.       HENRI NOUWEN                                                                                      

PRAYER POWER

The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but un-offered prayer. Many people don’t realize that prayer can change even the fate of nations. There is no limit to the power of prayer. It is the ultimate spiritual arm and no earthly power can stand against it. What does the Bible say about prayer?

“The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Luke 18:25 “Let us come boldly to the throne of grace.”Hebrews 4:16  “Pray without ceasing.”                                                     1 Thessalonians 5:17 

“Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.”                                   Psalm 2:8 

MEDITATION PRAYER

Meditation  involves:

  • I call to mind this truth, with love
  • I ponder it, with love
  • I embrace it, with love

Contemplation involves:

  • I see the person.
  • I hear the words.
  • I observe the actions.
