A Writing From Lauren DeGraw

Prov. 1:10 - 19

These verses tell us what to NOT do in life. In verse 11 it says, "They may say, "Come and join us. Let's hide and kill everyone! Just for fun, let's ambush the innocent!" So many times in life the devil tries to get us to do things that are wrong. He tries to trick us by saying, oh its ok it's only a little or who is going to notice. But if you go to verse 15 it says, "My child, don't go along with them! Stay far away from their paths."

God doesn't want us to go down the wrong path. We need to stay focused on Him and be giving Him the glory. There will be people who come into your life that will try to get you off God's path for you. Don't listen to these people, they were sent by the devil to try to get you off course. You need to focus on what God has for you.

You need to spend more time building a relationship with Him and getting to know Him more and more. God wants us to be mini Jesus'. Just think about the world if it was full of mini Jesus' it would be amazing.

So I challenge everyone to build a better relationship with Him. Trust me if you do He will bless you.

Healing and Deliverance - Isaiah 53

ISAIAH 53 CLEARLY TEACHES THAT BODILY HEALING AND DELIVERANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE ATONING WORK OF CHRIST AT THE CROSS. IF WE THINK JESUS DIED FOR ONLY OUR SINS AND NOT OUR HEALING AND DELIVERANCE THEN WE ARE ONLY BELIEVING HALF OF THE CROSS.

SOME BELIEVE OLD TESTAMENT IS OBSOLETE - I WANT TO SHOW YOU THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT.  IN MATTHEW 8 IT SAYS” THEY BROUGHT TO HIM MANY WHO WERE DEMON POSSESSED.  AND HE CAST OUT THE SPIRITS WITH A WORD, AND HEALED ALL WHO WERE SICK, THAT IT MIGHT BE FULFILLED WHICH WAS SPOKEN BY ISAIAH THE PROPHET, SAYING; “HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND BORE OUR SICKNESSES.”

I AM GOING TO BE TEACHING FROM ISAIAH 53. HE IS DESPISED AND REJECTED BY MEN; HE WAS LOOKED UPON LIKE A MAN OF DISEASE, LIKE A MAN WITH LEPROSY.   A MAN OF SORROWS, WHO HAD PAIN AND EMOTION AND WAS ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF. JESUS HAD TO KNOW OUR GRIEFS BY EXPERIENCE.
 
SURELY HE HAS BORNE OUR GRIEFS AND SORROWS. SURELY AND BORNE MEANS HE HAS LIFTED OFF AND TAKEN UPON HIMSELF OUR GRIEFS, WHICH IS OUR SICKNESS, WEAKNESSES, PAINS, INFIRMITIES AND HE CARRIED OUR SORROWS; HE CARRIED OUR PAINS OF PUNISHMENT - GRIEFS AND SORROWS REPRESENT BOTH SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL, BOTH HEALING AND DELIVERANCE.

ISA 53:5 BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; FOR OUR WICKEDNESS AND REBELLION, FOR OUR SINS AND DELIVERANCE. THE CHASTISEMENT FOR OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  NOT WE'RE GOING TO BE HEALED WE ALREADY ARE HEALED. RIGHT HERE THIS ONE VERSE TALKS ABOUT SINS, HEALING AND DELIVERANCE.

ISA 53:7 HE (JESUS) WAS OPPRESSED AND HE WAS AFFLICTED, YET HE OPENED NOT HIS MOUTH; (HE DIDN’T DISPATCH ANGELS HE TOOK THE BEATINGS.

THIS REMINDS ME OF THE PART IN THE MOVIE THE PASSION, HE WAS AT THE WHIPPING POST BENT OVER KNEELING TOWARDS THE GROUND, AND WHEN HE SAW MARY, MARY AND JOHN WALK INTO THE COURTYARD HE GOT UP, LOOKED IN THEIR EYES AND TOOK MORE BEATINGS.)

HE COULD HAVE DISPATCHED ANGELS, BUT HE TOOK THE BEATING FOR US.  IF WE DON’T ACCEPT THE HEALING AND DELIVERANCE ATONEMENT; THEN JESUS KEEPING HIS MOUTH SHUT AND TAKING THE BEATINGS FOR US; IS FOR NOTHING.  HE WAS LED AS A LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, AND AS A SHEEP BEFORE ITS SHEARERS IS SILENT, SO HE OPENED NOT HIS MOUTH. HE WAS LED AS A SHEEP, A DUMB SHEEP, AND LIKE THE SHEEP GIVES UP HIS WOOL, JESUS GAVE UP HIS FLESH.  HE OPENED NOT HIS MOUTH.  HOW MANY OF YOU COULD BORE THE PAIN HE BORE AND NOT OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND DISPATCH FOR ANGELIC ASSISTANCE?

VERSE 8 SAYS HE WAS TAKEN FROM PRISON AND FROM JUDGMENT, AND WHO WILL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? FOR HE WAS CUT OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING; FOR THE TRANSGRESSIONS OF MY PEOPLE HE WAS STRICKEN.

ISA 53:9 AND THEY MADE HIS GRAVE WITH THE WICKED— BUT WITH THE RICH AT HIS DEATH, BECAUSE HE HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH. EVEN THOUGH HE WAS SINLESS HE TOOK OUR SIN UPON HIMSELF.

ISA 53:10  YET IT PLEASED THE LORD TO BRUISE HIM; (THIS REALLY GETS ME, IT PLEASED THE FATHER TO BRUISE THE SON, IT PLEASED HIM, IT REALLY PLEASED HIM, IT WAS HIS WILL, IT WAS THE ONLY WAY WE COULD HAVE RECONCILIATION WITH HIM, THE ONLY WAY WAS THROUGH THE WHIPPING AND THROUGH THE CROSS.)    IT WAS THE WILL OF THE LORD TO BRUISE HIM AND HE HAS PUT HIM TO GRIEF.  HE MADE HIM SICK; HE MADE HIM SICK FOR YOU, HE MADE HIM SICK FOR ME.  THE SCRIPTURE FURTHER TELLS US; WHEN YOU MAKE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN, HE SHALL SEE HIS SEED, AND HE SHALL PROLONG HIS DAYS, (PROLONGING OF HIS DAYS IS THE  RESURRECTION; IT DOESN’T STOP AT THE CROSS IT GOES TO THE RESURRECTION.)

IT CONTINUES AND THE PLEASURE OF THE LORD SHALL PROSPER IN HIS HAND. ISA 53:11 HE SHALL SEE THE LABOR OF HIS SOUL, AND BE SATISFIED. BY HIS KNOWLEDGE MY RIGHTEOUS SERVANT SHALL JUSTIFY MANY, FOR HE SHALL BEAR THEIR INIQUITIES. (HE SHALL SEE THE FRUIT OF THE TRAVAIL OF HIS SOUL AND BE SATISFIED; BY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF HIMSELF WHICH HE POSSESSES AND IMPARTS TO OTHERS.) SHALL MY RIGHTEOUS ONE, MY SERVANT, JUSTIFY MANY AND MAKE MANY RIGHTEOUS, UPRIGHT AND IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD, FOR HE SHALL BEAR THEIR INQUITIES AND THEIR GUILT WITH THE CONSEQUENCES SAYS THE LORD.  (WHAT HE DID MAKES US IN RIGHT STANDING BEFORE GOD)

ISA 53:12 THEREFORE I WILL DIVIDE HIM A PORTION WITH THE GREAT AND HE SHALL DIVIDE THE SPOIL WITH THE STRONG, BECAUSE HE POURED OUT HIS SOUL UNTO DEATH, AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS, AND HE BORE THE SIN OF MANY, AND MADE INTERCESSION FOR THE TRANSGRESSORS.

HE GAVE HIS LIFE; HE GAVE IT ALL FOR YOUR SIN, FOR YOUR HEALING FOR YOUR DELIVERANCE.  ACCEPT THE SACRIFICE, ACCEPT JESUS, AND ACCEPT THE POWER OF THE CROSS.
MANY TIMES THROUGHTOUT SCRIPTURE WE HEAR ABOUT THE HEALING AND DELIVERANCE ATONEMENT BUT DO WE REALLY TAKE IT IN? 

THIS IS WHAT JESUS CAME TO EARTH FOR AND THIS IS WHAT JESUS DIED FOR.
JESUS’ INITIAL MINISTRY ACTIVITY FOLLOWING THE APPOINTMENT OF HIS DISCIPLES IS THE DELIVERANCE OF A MAN WITH AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT.
AS HE LAUNCHES INTO HIS MINISTRY, JESUS IS IMMEDIATELY CONFRONTED BY THE DEMONIC REALM.  IF YOU ARE SITTING HERE BELIEVING FOR YOUR HEALING BUT DON’T BELIEVE IN DELIVERANCE YOU ARE ONLY BELIEVING HALF OF WHAT JESUS HAS DONE.

IN MARK 16 IN THE GREAT COMMISSION BEFORE JESUS ASCENDED TO HEAVEN HE SAID.  THESE SIGNS WILL ACCOMPANY THOSE WHO BELIEVE:  THEY WILL CAST OUT DEMONS IN MY NAME, THEY WILL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; THEY WILL TAKE UP SERPENTS; AND IF THEY DRINK ANYTHING DEADLY, IT WILL BY NO MEANS HARM THEM; THEY WILL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY WILL RECOVER.  THE FIRST THING HE SAYS IS “CAST OUT DEMONS”.  MOST TIMES DEMONIC DELIVERANCE NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE BEFORE PHYSICAL HEALING CAN TAKE PLACE. 

THERE ARE SCRIPTURES UPON SCRIPTURES THAT BRING HEALING AND DELIVERANCE TOGETHER.  Mark 1:34, Matt 4:23, 12:22 8:5, 8:16, 9:32, 10:1.
Let me read you a couple of them:
MATTHEW 17:18 “AND JESUS REBUKED THE DEMON, AND IT CAME OUT OF HIM, AND THE CHILD WAS CURED FROM THAT VERY HOUR.

MATTHEW 12:22 “THEN ONE WAS BROUGHT TO HIM WHO WAS DEMON-POSSESSED, BLIND AND MUTE AND HE HEALED HIM. 
HEALING IS DELIVERANCE – DELIVERANCE IS HEALING

LUKE 4:40-41 “WHEN THE SUN WAS SETTING ALL THOSE WHO HAD ANY THAT WERE SICK WITH VARIOUS DISEASES BROUGHT THEM TO HIM; AND HE LAID HIS HANDS ON EVERY ONE OF THEM AND HEALED THEM.  AND DEMONS ALSO CAME OUT OF MANY CRYING OUT AND SAYING “YOU ARE THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD!  AND HE REBUKING THEM DID NOT ALLOW THEM TO SPEAK, FOR THEY KNEW THAT HE WAS CHRIST.”

BELIEVE PEOPLE BELIEVE, IF JESUS HIMSELF SAID IT, IT IS SO.  THERE ARE DEMONS, THERE IS HEALING AVAILABLE, REACH OUT AND BE DELIVERED AND GRAB YOUR HEALING.

MATT 8:16
WHEN EVENING CAME, MANY WHO WERE DEMON-POSSESSED WERE BROUGHT TO HIM, AND HE DROVE OUT THE SPIRITS WITH A WORD AND HEALED ALL THE SICK.
NOW OUR MINISTRY DOES DELIVERANCE SESSIONS AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS TO GET DELIVERED.  BUT LOOK HERE JESUS HIMSELF DROVE OUT SPIRITS WITH A WORD.  WE HAVE THE SAME POWER AND AUTHORITY OF CHRIST HIMSELF.
IF WE BELIEVE JESUS CAN DRIVE OUT SPIRITS WITH A WORD AND WE HAVE THE SAME AUTHORITY THAN MANY OF YOU TONIGHT CAN HAVE INSTANT DELIVERANCE AT THE NAME OF JESUS.  I’VE SEEN IT HAPPEN.
“JESUS”
 
IF YOU LOOK AT THE SCRIPTURES JESUS OFTEN DID HEALING AND DELIVERANCE TOGETHER.   

THE LORD RECENTLY HAD ME STUDY MATTHEW 4:23-25 FOR ABOUT A WEEK.
THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS “AND JESUS WENT ABOUT ALL GALILEE, TEACHING IN THEIR SYNAGOGUES, PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, AND HEALING ALL KINDS OF SICKNESS AND ALL KINDS OF DISEASE AMONG THE PEOPLE.  THEN HIS FAME WENT THROUGHOUT ALL SYRIA; AND THEY BROUGHT TO HIM ALL SICK PEOPLE WHO WERE AFFLICTED WITH VARIOUS DISEASES AND TORMENTS, AND THOSE WHO WERE DEMON-POSSESSED, EPILEPTICS, AND PARALYTICS; AND HE HEALED THEM.”

NOW LET’S PICK THIS SCRIPTURE APART;
FIRST JESUS DID 5 THINGS HERE; HE TAUGHT, HE PREACHED, HE WAS MAKING DISCIPLES, COMMANDING HEALING AND CASTING OUT DEMONS.

IF JESUS WAS DOING ALL OF THIS AND WE ARE SUPPOSE TO DO THE SAME AND GREATER THINGS THEN JESUS SHOULDN’T WE BE TEACHING, PREACHING, EQUIPPING, HEALING AND CASTING OUT DEMONS.  WE HAVE ALREADY DONE ALL 5 OF THOSE THINGS HERE TODAY THAT IS PART OF OUR MINISTRY. 

THE LORD SHOWED ME DELIVERANCE IS A BIG PART OF HEALING.  IN THE GREAT COMMISSION THE FIRST THING JESUS SAYS IS “IN MY NAME THEY WILL CAST OUT DEMONS.”  SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON’T GET HEALED BECAUSE WE ARE SO BUSY PRAYING FOR THEIR HEALING THAT WE DON’T STOP TO INTERCEDE AND DISCERN IF THERE IS MORE TO THEIR PHYSICAL HEALING THAN OUR EYE CAN SEE.
SOMETIMES THERE IS A SPIRIT ATTACHED WE OVERLOOK. 

WHY AM I PUSHING SO MUCH OF THIS ON YOU TODAY?  BECAUSE I WANT YOU WELL BECAUSE GOD WANTS YOU WELL,  I WANT YOU FREE AND GOD WANTS YOU FREE.  SO MANY OF YOU ARE WALKING AROUND WAITING FOR A HEALING TO MANIFEST, DISCOURAGED THAT A HEALING HASN’T MANIFESTED.  WHEN ALL ALONG YOU NEEDED DELIVERANCE FROM SOMETHING.  I WANT TO EDUCATE YOU AND THE LORD WANTS TO INFORM YOU.  LOOK IN THE SCRIPTURES IT IS RIGHT HERE.   HEALING AND DELIVERANCE GO HAND IN HAND.  JESUS DID THEM TOGETHER SO WE MUST TO THEM TOGETHER.  HOW BAD DO YOU WANT YOUR HEALING?  HOW BAD DO YOU WANT YOUR WEIGHT LOSS?  IF YOU CAN’T CONTROL WHAT YOU EAT THAN SOMETHING IS CONTROLLING YOU.  YOUR FLESH AND/OR THE SPIRITS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF YOU ARE SAYING “I AM MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU.”  BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE DISOBEDIENT AND EAT WHAT YOU WANT INSTEAD OF STOPPING OR SAYING NO LIKE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS CONVICTING YOU THEN YOU ARE SAYING FOOD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN GOD.  YOUR PLATE OF FOOD IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP TO THE LORD.  OUCH!!!  LET’S SAY THAT ONE AGAIN “YOUR PLATE OF FOOD IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP TO THE LORD.”  YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST.  WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WORSHIP HIM WITH?  YOUR MOUTH, YOUR STOMACH OR YOUR HEART?  YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE OVERWEIGHT TO HEAR THIS MESSAGE.  MY FRIEND, CHRISTIANNA WAS ABOUT 5’6” – 135” AND WOULD PACK AWAY MY FAVORITE A 1# BAG OF PEANUT BUTTER M&M’S AND SHE WOULD DO IT IN ONE SETTING.  SHE COULD ALSO PACK AWAY A PACKAGE OF OREOS AND A GALLON OF MILK.  YOU KNOW WHAT SHE GOT DIABETES AT 25.  YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE SHE GOT?  KILLED IN A ONE CAR TRAFFIC ACCIDENT AT 26.  THAT WASN’T THE LORD’S WILL.  JOHN 10:10 SAYS THE THIEF COMES TO STEAL KILL AND DESTROY I HAVE COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT IN ABUNDANCE.  IF YOU ARE NOT BEING OBEDIENT TO THE LORD HE WILL TAKE HIS HAND OF BLESSING AND PROTECTION OFF OF YOU AND I BELIEVE THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH CHRISTIANNA.  SCRIPTURES SHOW US IN DEUT 28 THERE ARE CURSES ON DISOBEDIENCE AND BLESSINGS IN OBEDIENCE.
(Num 14:9)  Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them.

 (Isa 22:8)  He removed the protection of Judah.
JEREMIAH 16:5 “I HAVE TAKEN AWAY MY PEACE FROM THIS PEOPLE.”
JEREMIAH 16:13  “I WILL NOT SHOW YOU FAVOR.”
JEREMIAH 17:5 “CURSED IS THE MAN WHO TRUSTS IN MAN AND MAKES FLESH HIS STRENGTH.” (CHAPTER ABOUT SIN AND PUNISHMENT)

TESTIMONY – CAIDEN

GOD WANTS YOU TO REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL BUT YOU CAN’T IF THERE ARE THINGS HOLDING YOU BACK.  DO YOU HAVE A HARD TIME HEARING FROM GOD?
DO YOU FEEL LIKE THERE IS SOMETHING HOLDING YOU BACK FROM RECEIVING ALL GOD HAS FOR YOU?  ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CONVICT YOU AND REVEAL TO YOU WHAT IT IS.

ALONG WITH DELIVERANCE THERE IS HEALING FOR YOU SCRIPTURES THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE TELL US IT IS JESUS’ DESIRE TO HEAL YOU
ISAIAH 57:19
THEN THE WORDS OF PRAISE WILL BE ON THEIR LIPS.  MAY THEY HAVE PEACE, BOTH NEAR AND FAR, FOR I WILL HEAL THEM ALL.  SOME OF YOU CAN GET HEALED AND DELIVERED DURING WORSHIP WITH THE PRAISE OF YOUR LIPS.

PSALMS 103
PRAISE THE LORD, O MY SOUL, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS,   WHO FORGIVES ALL YOUR SINS AND HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES SO THAT YOUR YOUTH IS RENEWED LIKE THE EAGLE'S.   THE LORDS DESIRE IS FOR YOU TO LIVE IN HEALTH.  HE HAS ALREADY RENEWED MY HUSBAND AND ME.  WE ARE OLDER THAN WE LOOK AND WE CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME WE WERE SICK!

MATT 9:35 
JESUS WENT THROUGH ALL THE TOWNS AND VILLAGES, TEACHING IN THEIR SYNAGOGUES, PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM AND HEALING EVERY DISEASE AND SICKNESS.

MATT 8:1-3
A MAN WITH LEPROSY CAME AND KNELT BEFORE HIM AND SAID, "LORD, IF YOU ARE WILLING, YOU CAN MAKE ME CLEAN." JESUS REACHED OUT HIS HAND AND TOUCHED THE MAN. "I AM WILLING," HE SAID. "BE CLEAN!" IMMEDIATELY HE WAS CURED OF HIS LEPROSY.

IT’S ALL THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES GOD WANTS YOU WELL.
GOD IS NOT MAKING YOU SICK.
GOD DOESN’T GIVE SICKNESS. 
IT IS NOT HIS WILL FOR YOU TO HAVE THIS DISEASE.
HE DOESN’T GIVE YOU A SICKNESS TO TEACH YOU SOMETHING OR PUNISH YOU.

TESTIMONY – DILLON’S STORY
YEARS AGO MY SON, DILLON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A STAPH INFECTION, STREP INFECTION, IMPETIGO, SCARLET FEVER, AND PETICHIA.   I REMEMBER BEING IN THE HOSPITAL READING THE SCRIPTURES OVER DILLON AND TALKING TO HIM ABOUT GOD AND FAITH.  I REMEMBER DILLON WHO WAS ONLY 8 AT THE TIME ASKING ME “MOMMY WHY AM I SICK”.  I TOLD HIM THAT OVER 200 PEOPLE WERE PRAYING FOR HIM.  I SAID PERHAPS GOD MADE YOU SICK SO THAT SOMEONE WHO HASN’T PRAYED IN A LONG TIME STARTED PRAYING FOR YOU.  AND WHEN THEY PRAYED FOR YOU THAT GOT THEM BACK ON THE ROAD TO JESUS.”  HOW WRONG I WAS.  I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE I THOUGHT IT OR SPOKE IT.
  
GOD DOESN’T CAUSE SICKNESS THE ONLY THING HE NEEDS TO DO IS SEND HIS HOLY SPIRIT TO CONVICT THAT PERSON NOT INFLICT ILLNESS ON MY CHILD ON HIS CHILD.   I WAS SO WRONG BUT IT DIDN’T STOP THERE.  KNOW ONE EVERY TAUGHT ME ABOUT THE HEALING ATONEMENT.  SO TWO YEARS LATER IN WAS IN THE ER ROOM, LAYING MY HANDS ON MY HUSBAND AND PRAYING “LORD IF HEALING FOR RON IS TAKING HIM UP TO HEAVEN THEN I RELEASE HIM TO YOU.  HE IS IN SUCH PAIN, SO UNCOMFORTABLE.  IT WOULD BE HARD TO LIVE WITHOUT HIM BUT IF IT WOULD BRING GLORY TO YOUR NAME I WILL DO IT.”  THANKFULLY THE LORD DIDN’T LISTEN TO MY PRAYER BECAUSE THE E.R. ROOM SENT HIM HOME UNDIAGNOSED AND CALLED HIM BACK TO THE HOSPITAL THE NEXT MORNING.  HIS APPENDIX HAD RUPTURED AND HE COULD HAVE DIED.  I BELIEVED IN HEALING THEN BUT I DIDN’T KNOW IF IT WAS GOD’S WILL TO HEAL EVERYONE.  I DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS HIS WELL FOR US TO LIVE A LONG AND SATISFYING LIFE AS IN PSALM 91:16.
 
I HAD TO CHANGE MY THINKING BY MEDITATING ON THE SCRIPTURES:
EPHESIANS 6:3 “THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU AND YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.” 
PROVERBS 3:2 IT SAYS “FOR LENGTH OF DAYS AND LONG LIFE AND PEACE THEY WILL ADD TO YOU.” 
PSALM 107:20 “HE SENT FORTH HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM
JOHN 8:32 THEY SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH THEY KNOW SHALL SET THEM FREE.
WE CAN KNOW THE WORD BUT IT IS THE TRUTH WE KNOW, THAT WE REALLY KNOW THAT WILL SET US FREE.  ONE PART OF THE TRUTH YOU NEED TO KNOW IS THAT

IT IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALING THAT YOU DEAL WITH FORGIVENESS.  YOUR HEALING AND DELIVERANCE IS DEPENDENT ON FORGIVING OTHERS AND YOURSELF.

FORGIVENESS IS A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN OF ALL JUDGEMENT, TO GIVE UP ALL RESENTMENT, TO RELEASE THE OFFENDER FROM THE DEBT OF HIS OR HER ACT. 
FORGIVENESS IS NOT A FEELING – IT IS BEING OBEDIENT TO THE WORD WHICH SAYS FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US AND HOW MANY TIMES SHOULD WE FORGIVE SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN. 
WE ARE NOT CONDONING THE ACTION, DEMANDING THE OFFENDER TO CHANGE OR ASKING YOU TO FORGET ABOUT IT. 

BY FORGIVING WE ARE SAYING WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET IT HOLD US IN BONDAGE ANYMORE.   WHEN WE HAVE UNFORGIVENESS MANY TIMES THE PERSON THAT HAS OFFENDED US DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT AND WE ARE HOLDING OURSELVES IN BONDAGE.

MEDICAL DOCTORS ARE LINKING UNFORGIVENESS TO HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, STROKES AND CANCERS AND ALMOST EVERY OTHER PHYSICAL AILMENT NOT INCLUDING THE EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL STRESS IT PUTS ON YOUR MIND.

THE BEST MEDICINE FOR MY LIFE WHEN I BECOME STRESSED OUT IS I AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW THAT PERSON OR SITUATION TO CAUSE SICKNESS AND DISEASE TO ENTER MY BODY.  I THROW THE THOUGHT OR SITUATION ASIDE BECAUSE I DON’T WANT MY CHILDREN OR HUSBAND TO GO THROUGH ME BEING SICK OR DYING AND I DON’T WANT THE ENEMY TO STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY MY DESTINY TO ADVANCE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND PREACH THE COMPLETE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL.

WE DON’T FORGIVE BECAUSE WE ARE ANGRY, LIKE SELF PITY, AND WE WANT VENGENCE.   YOU FORGIVE AND THEN SIMPLY PRAY FOR THEM AND ASK THE LORD TO BLESS THEM AND THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CONVICT THEM.  (REPEAT)
 
READ AS A PROPHETIC WORD:

GOD WANTS REPENTANCE, GOD DESIRES REPENTANCE, GOD WANTS HUMILITY AND HONESTY.  HE WANTS YOUR CONFESSION HE DESIRES YOUR CONFESSION.  BE HONEST WITH HIM TELL HIM WHAT IS ON YOUR HEART HE ALREADY KNOWS BUT HE WANTS TO HEAR IT FROM YOU.  HE DOESN’T WANT TO BEG HE WANTS YOU TO JUST OFFER IT TO HIM, JUST LIKE YOU OFFER YOUR MONEY, YOUR SONG OF PRAISE, YOUR TIME, HE WANTS YOU TO OFFER HIM YOUR WORDS YOUR CONFESSION.  (AS I WAS PREPARING FOR THIS CONFERENCE THE LORD GAVE ME THIS PROPHETIC WORD TO SHARE WITH YOU.) “CONFESS TO ME, YOU DO IT TO EVERYONE ELSE, YOU GOSSIP ABOUT IT, STEW OVER IT, THE ENEMY KNOWS ABOUT IT YET YOU DON’T TELL ME. WHY DON’T YOU TELL ME? DON’T YOU THINK I CARE? DON’T YOU THINK I WANT TO RELEASE YOU FROM THESE BURDENS, THESE PAINS, THESE PAST MISTAKES THE UNFORGIVENSS IN YOUR HEART? I WANT TO RELEASE YOU; I CARE ENOUGH TO RELEASE YOU. I CARED ENOUGH TO COME TO THIS EARTH TO DIE FOR YOU FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS, FOR YOUR HEALING, FOR YOUR DELIVERANCE. YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER YOU WANT IF YOU ONLY ASK. IF YOU ONLY CONFESS WITH YOUR HEART THAT I AM LORD; THAT I CAN DO ALL THIS. I AM THE MAKER AND CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE NOTHING IS TOO BIG FOR ME, NO SIN IS SO GREAT THAT I CANNOT HANDLE FORGIVING IT. I HAVE ALREADY FORGIVEN IT BEFORE YOU EVEN COMMITTED IT.  WHY DO YOU HOLD ONTO IT? WHY DON’T YOU LET IT GO? WHY DON’T YOU PUT IT AT MY CROSS? WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME WITH IT? YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK NOT.  ASK! I AM STANDING HERE AT THE DOOR. I AM WAITING FOR YOU TO ASK ME TO TAKE IT AWAY, GIVE IT TO ME, GIVE IT TO ME, RELEASE IT NOW, JUST LIFT YOUR HANDS UP TO HEAVEN AND RELEASE IT TO ME, GIVE IT TO ME NOW.” (LET MY SPIRIT DO WHAT IS NEXT)
FORGIVENESS IF APPROPRAITE AFTER WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES:
 

SOME OF YOU MAYBE THINKING THAT YOU DON’T NEED HEALING;
ARE YOU WEARING EYEGLASSES? ARE YOU OVERWEIGHT?
THEN YOU NEED HEALING.

SOME OF YOU THINK YOU DON’T NEED DELIVERANCE?
DO YOU HAVE UNCONTROLLABLE ANGER? DO YOU HEAR IN YOUR HEAD GOD DOESN’T LOVE YOU, YOUR SPOUSE DOESN’T LOVE YOU, OR YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO DO THAT?
LADIES – DO YOU CONTROL YOUR HUSBAND, YOUR KIDS?
MEN ARE YOU ADDICTED OR PARTICIPATE IN PORNOGRAPHY – MEN IT IS NOT YOU WHO ARE ADDICTED IT IS A SPIRIT OF PERVERSION. YOU CAN BE SET FREE FROM PORNO.  IT IS THE ENEMIES ATTEMPT TO ENSNARE YOU AS A CHRISTIAN BUSINESS LEADER, HUSBAND AND CHURCH LEADER.

JESUS PURCHASED OUR HEALING AT THE CROSS.  WE HAVE BEEN ALREADY HEALED IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM; WE ARE NOW WAITING FOR THE HEALING TO MANIFEST IN THE PHYSICAL REALM.
WHILE YOU ARE WAITING FOR YOUR HEALING TO MANIFEST…
YOU NEED TO COMMAND YOUR BODY TO COME INTO ALIGNMENT AND SPEAK TO YOUR “PHYSICAL AILMENT” YOUR MOUNTAIN.  JESUS TEACHES US HOW TO DO THIS IN MARK 11:23-24 “FOR ASSUREDLY, I SAY TO YOU, WHOEVER SAYS TO THIS MOUNTAIN, BE REMOVED AND BE CAST INTO THE SEA, AND DOES NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART, BUT BELIEVES THAT THOSE THINGS HE SAYS WILL BE DONE, HE WILL HAVE WHATEVER HE SAYS, THEREFORE I SAY TO YOU, WHATEVER THINGS YOU ASK WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE THEM, AND YOU WILL HAVE THEM.”  JESUS IS TELLING US TO SPEAK TO OUR MOUNTAIN, NOT TO PRAY ABOUT IT, OR PLEAD FOR IT, BUT TO SPEAK ALOUD TO OUR MOUNTAIN.  SIMPLY SAY SICKNESS AND DISEASE, SPIRIT OF CONTROL OR SPIRIT OF CANCER OR WHATEVER YOUR INFIRMITY OR SPIRIT IS.  I COMMAND YOU TO BE REMOVED IN JESUS’ NAME.  (DO WE WANT THEM TO DO IT THEMSELVES ALOUD DURING THE SERVICE AS A GROUP?)

BUT AS WE WAIT WE NEED TO CALL THINGS THAT ARE NOT AS THOUGH THEY ARE.  IN ROMANS 4:17 IT SAYS “GOD WHO GIVES LIFE TO THE DEAD AND CALLS THOSE THINGS WHICH DO NOT EXIST AS THOUGH THEY DID.”   THAT MEANS TO PRAISE HIM AND THANK HIM FOR YOUR HEALING EVEN IF IT HAS NOT MANIFESTED IN THE PHYSICAL REALM YET.
WE NEED TO SAY “THANK YOU GOD FOR MY HEALING”, “THANK YOU GOD I HAVE PERFECT 20/20 VISION, “THANK YOU GOD MY TEETH ARE STRAIGHT AND WHITE”, THANK YOU GOD MY CANCER IS GONE, PRAISE YOU LORD MY SPIRIT OF LUST OR CONTROL IS GONE.   
WE FIX OUR EYES NOT ON WHAT IS SEEN, BUT ON WHAT IS UNSEEN.  2 COR 4:18

THERE ARE 3 WAYS YOU CAN SEE YOUR HEALING MANIFEST TONIGHT IN THIS SERVICE.
1. THE GLORY OR MANIFEST PRESENCE OF THE LORD.  THIS IS WHEN GOD SIMPLY SHOWS UP AND YOU CAN’T BREATH, ARE PINNED TO THE ALTAR AND DROP TO THE FLOOR LIKE I TALKED ABOUT IN MY WORSHIP MESSAGE THIS MORNING.
IN A FEW MINUTES WE ARE GOING TO CULTIVATE THE ATMOSPHERE AND EXPECT THE GLORY OF THE LORD TO FALL AND INSTANTLY HEAL AND DELIVER YOU.
2. THE ANOINTING – THE WORD SAYS “LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY SHALL RECOVER”.  WE ARE GOING TO HAVE PRAYER TEAMS UP HERE AND ON THESE TEAMS ARE PEOPLE ANOINTED WITH THE GIFT OF HEALING.  HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY ARE ANOINTED?  YOU WILL FEEL IT.  YOU MIGHT GET HOT, FEELING TINGLING OR EXPERIENCE OTHER MANIFESTATIONS OF THE SPIRIT.
3. THE WORD – WE ARE GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE CLAIM AND COMMAND YOUR HEALING BY WHAT THE WORD SAYS.  PEOPLE AREN’T GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU AND SAY OH HEAVENLY FATHER, THIS PERSON NEEDS HEALING, PLEASE HEAL THEM.  WE ARE NOT INTO BEGGING PRAYERS.  WE ARE GOING TO TAKE OUR GOD GIVEN AUTHORITY THAT RON TALKED ABOUT EARLIER AND STAND ON PSALM 107:20 “HE SENT FORTH HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM.”  WE KNOW IT IS GOD’S WILL TO HEAL AND THAT HE HEALS.  WE ARE GOING TO STAND IN FAITH ON THAT WORD WITH YOU FOR YOUR HEALING.  PERHAPS YOU WILL EVEN BE HEALED IN YOUR SEAT OR IN LINE STANDING ON THE WORD IN YOUR OWN FAITH.

IF YOU DON’T “FEEL” ANYTHING HAPPEN JUST KEEP PRAISING THE LORD AND CLAIMING YOUR HEALING ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
THE LEPORS WERE HEALED AS THEY WENT AND PERHAPS YOU TOO WILL BE HEALED
AS YOU GO, HEALING IS A PROCESS.  WE ARE CALLING FORTH AND CLAIMING MIRACLES AND INSTANT HEALINGS BUT SOMETIMES HEALING IS A PROCESS.  WE DON’T KNOW WHY SOME PEOPLE GET HEALED INSTANTLY AND SOME ARE HEALED AS THEY GO BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE GOD’S WORD AND GOD’S WORD SAYS BY HIS STRIPES YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED.

WHEN YOU COME FOR PRAYER YOU NEED TO COME WITH FAITH.  ALL OF YOU HAVE THE FAITH OF A MUSTARD SEED THAT IS WHY YOU ARE HERE TODAY BUT WE WANT YOU TO INCREASE YOUR EXPECTATIONS, INCREASE YOUR FAITH.  WHEN THE WOMAN WITH THE BLOOD ISSUE TOUCHED JESUS HE FELT THE POWER GO OUT OF HIM.  THE WOMAN HAD ENOUGH FAITH THAT JESUS COULD HEAL, THAT SHE SUCKED THE POWER RIGHT OUT OF HIM.  THAT IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TONIGHT, SUCK THE POWER RIGHT OUT OF US, OUT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US.  IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO LAYS HANDS ON YOU AND CLAIMS AND CALLS FORTH YOUR HEALING, IT IS JESUS DOING THE HEALING NOT US.

WE ARE GOING TO USHER IN THE GLORY, USHER IN THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF THE LORD.  DON’T WAIT TO COME UP, COME WHILE THE ANOINTING AND GLORY IS HERE.  SOME OF YOU MIGHT STAND IN LINE AND MIGHT GET UP HERE AND SAY NEVER MIND THE LORD HEALED ME ALREADY WHILE I WAS IN LINE.

SOME OF YOU MAY BE HESITANT BECAUSE YOU HAD HANDS LAID ON YOU BEFORE AND HAVEN’T SEEN YOUR PHYICAL MANIFESTATION OF HEALING.

MAYBE YOU HAVEN’T BEEN HEALED BECAUSE OF YOUR LACK OF FAITH, THEN INCREASE YOUR FAITH, INCREASE YOUR EXPECTATIONS. 

PERHAPS YOU HAVEN’T BEEN HEALED BECAUSE THEIR WAS UNFORGIVENSS IN YOU AND NOW THAT IS GONE!

PERHAPS YOU PUT STIPULATIONS ON HOW GOD IS GOING TO HEAL YOU, BY SAYING WHEN I DO THIS OR THAT I WILL BE HEALED, OR I HAVE TO TRAVEL TO KENNETH COPELAND OR BENNY HINN TO GET MY HEALING.

PERHAPS YOU ARE SEEKING A MAN OR WOMAN A CERTAIN PERSON WITH AN ANOINTING ON THEM TO HEAL YOU INSTEAD OF THE HEALER JESUS CHRIST.

WHEN JESUS HEALED HE CAST OUT THE SPIRITS WITH A WORD AND HEALED ALL THE SICK, PERHAPS YOU NEVER HAD THE SPIRITS CAST OUT.  THEN CAST THEM OUT YOU KNOW WHAT’S INSIDE YOU SAY SPIRIT OF LUST, SPIRIT OF ANGER, I RENOUNCE YOU BE REMOVED IN JESUS’ NAME. 
RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS – COME EXPECTING

I TELL THE LADIES IN OUR WEEKLY MEETINGS TO COME EXPECTING.
EXPECT THE GLORY AND MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD.
WE HAVE SEEN GALL BLADDERS AND PANCREASES HEALED AND RESTORED, DIABETES CURED, YEAST INFECTIONS DISAPPEAR AND DEMONS FLEE AT THE NAME OF JESUS.
WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING? WHAT HAVEN’T YOU BEEN ABLE TO GET RID OF?
COME EXPECTING! DO YOU NEED A MOVE FROM GOD? COME AND GET IT! ARE YOU HUNGRY? COME AND GET IT!  ARE YOU SICK OF BEING SICK? COME AND GET WHAT HE HAS FOR YOU, BUT COMING EXPECTING
