TOPIC: WHY HEALING TARRIES
BIBLE TEXT: MATTHEW 10:8
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
There is no place believers were ever asked in the New Testament to pray to God to do the healing of the sick. We are asked to heal the sick, cleanse the leper, cast out demons. God is the source of the power but believers are the channel and the authorized user. Whether we utilize the authority God has given to us or not, it doesn’t affect God in any way but we can pray all we want, he won’t do what he asks us to do.
Many disciples of Jesus Christ are praying to God to touch and heal sick fellows around them but God is just laughing saying I have given you the assignment to do it. It is a command to all disciples today to heal the sick, cast out devils, and cleanse the leper. I have lived many of my days in this ignorance until the Lord thought me this. Now, I see it works. As the vessel of God, we are the ones to lay hand on the sick and command healing into their body. God is not going to do that for us.
God is the source of power but we are the ones to use it for ourselves and for others who are sick. It is like PHCN, they give you power as their customer but you are the one to use it in your time of need. No matter how much you weep in your house and pray to the power holding company to put on the light in your room for you, it will be in vain. They have transmitted the power to your switch, you are the one to switch on your Television and any other gadget you want to use. Until you switch it on, you will never see light or make use of light. Many Christians are weeping for God to do what he has already given them the power to do.
In the text above, we are told to heal the sick. He didn’t say pray to me to do it for you. You will pray in Jesus but you are the one to command the healing into your body or to the body of the one you are praying for. This is just the truth and nothing more. God has given us power. We are the ones to exercise it through faith. He is not going to do that for you. It is even unwise to be waiting for the Phcn to switch the light in your house on when the light is in your house. The power is in your house. The power of God is in you as a channel. You are the one to release this power. If you don’t flip the switch in your house on, you can fast all your life praying that the light be switch on and nothing would happen.
Many Christians don’t know they have the power of God in them when they were filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Listen, praying for power is useless when God says you have received power. Praying in the Holy Spirit and communion with God is the source of an increase in power. The power will grow by what you do spiritually on a daily basis. A born again Christian needs to pray in the Holy Spirit (pray in tongues) and spend time in other spiritual activities to grow in power through the Holy Spirit that is already in him. All the power God would ever release is through the Holy Spirit that is already in you.
In Acts 1:8, the Bible says:
BUT YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER, AFTER THAT THE HOLY GHOST comes UPON YOU: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
This is how to have power 🆙
You may pray for all your life for power, you will NEVER receive it from heaven again. It is already in you. The Bible says we should covet the gift of the Holy Spirit but it is still the Holy Spirit in us that will give it. We increase in power as we make him our companion. This is the kind of truth that will send me out of some churches but it took years of praying for power to also know the truth. I have gotten good results since I knew this truth.
You see, I know some are hearing this truth for the first time. If you meditate more in the word and desire to be free from religion, the Lord may also visit you as he did to me.
