GOD’S WILL TO HEAL

I WILL BE CHALLENGING,  YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM

     * WHAT IS A BELIEF SYSTEMBECAUSE EVERYBODY HAS ONE 

  1. YOUR IDEA OR THE WAY YOU THINK OF SOMETHING  TO BE
  2. NATURAL OR IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM     (SPIRITUAL)
  3. ITS BASICALLY,  YOUR VERSION OF THE BIBLE

ITS AMAZING HOW WE HAVE OUR OWN PERSONAL VERSION OF THE BIBLE  BEFORE WE’RE EVEN  SAVED MUCH LESS STUDIED THE BIBLE

MOST PEOPLE’S BELIEF SYSTEM, IS MADE UP OF MOSTLY OF THINGS OTHER THAN THE WORD OF GOD.

     * NOW, HOW DO WE GET OUR BELIEF SYSTEM WHERE DOES IT COME FROM

  1. MAMA   2. GR. PARENTS   3. CHURCH   4. FRIENDS, WHO DONT KNOW GOD

MANY BELIEF SYSTEMS ARE DEVELOPED BY CIRCUMSTANCES OR HUMAN EXSPERINCES  IN EVERYDAY LIFE

YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM, IS ALWAYS BEING ADDED TO,  EVERYDAY

YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM WILL DETERMINE

WHAT AND HOW YOU RECIEVE FROM GOD

 

==================================================

 

Hosea 4:6 (KJV)
6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

     * THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE  & THE WRONG KNOWLEDGE  
       
HAS HINDERED PEOPLE FROM RECIEVING THE PROMISES OF

        GOD IN THIER LIVES, WAY TO LONG.

     * ITS JUST AS DAMAGING, IF NOT MORE, TO HAVE WRONG

        KNOWLEDGE, AS IT IS IN LACKING KNOWLEDGE

I’VE BEEN FOUGHT MORE, BY RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WITH  WRONG KNOWLEDGE , THAN LOST PEOPLE WITH NO KNOWLEDGE 

 

 =================================================

 

 John 8:31-32 (KJV) 
31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  

     * HOW = WHAT IS TRUTH  =  WORD  =  SEED 

FREEDOM IS THE TRUTH KNOWN, UNDERSTOOD, RECEIVED, ACTED ON

 

==================================================

 

WE MUST KNOW & UNDERSTAND THAT

THE WORD OF GOD*** IS THE WILL OF GOD.

 SO, TO KNOW THE WORD OF GOD,

IS TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD.

SO, IF YOU KNOW THE WILL OF GOD, YOU CAN THEN PRAY ACCORDING TO HIS WILL

NOT, IF IT BE THY WILL

      * WHEN WE PRAY FOR HEALING TODAY 

ITS LIKE WE SEND A REQUEST FORM ACROSS GODS DESK AND HOPE HE STAMPS APPROVED ON ITTHEN WE PATIENTLY WAIT

YOU GOT TO KNOW

  1. IT’S THE WILL OF GOD    for you to be healed 
  2. IT’S ALREADY BEEN DONE   2000 years ago, by Jesus Christ

 

=======================================================

 

 HOW CAN WE KNOW THIS

BY FAITH ,,,,,,,,,FAITH IS LIKE A  TALENT

ROM. 12:3 TELL’S US, THAT GOD HAS DEALT TO EVERY MAN THE

                   MEASURE OF FAITH

       SO,

    * GOD GIVES US THE ABILITY TO BELIEVE HIS WORD AS WE HEAR

 THEN  THE  NEXT  STEP  IS  ON  US

Romans 10:17 (KJV)
17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

YOUR FAITH, BEGINS & ENDS    WHERE THE

                                          WILL / WORD OF GOD IS KNOWN

BASICALLY;  YOU CAN’T HAVE ANY MORE  FAITH,

 THAN YOU HAVE, OF THE WORD OF GOD 

IF YOUR GOING TO BE ABLE TO BELIEVE GOD FOR YOUR HEALING

YOU’VE GOT TO KNOW , WHAT HIS WORD SAYS CONCERNING HEALING

 BECAUSE

YOU CAN’T BELIEVE SOMETHING, YOU DONT KNOW

 

===================================================================

 

EVERYBODY BELIEVES GOD CAN HEAL ………….. FEW BELIEVE

             HE WILLS TO HEAL 

 

Matthew 8:1-3 (KJV)     LEPER  
1  When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
2  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
3  And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

 

THE FIRST THING JESUS DID WAS CORRECT HIS THEOLOGY

CAUSE HE KNEW JESUS COULD, BUT NOT THAT HE WOULD 

 

=======================================================

 

  1. IT IS GOD’S WILL TO HEAL EVERYBODY, ALL THE TIME

HOLD ON

     * GOD HEALS SOME,  BUT NOT ALL

IF YOUR ONE, THAT BELIEVES THIS, YOU WILL ALWAYS

BE IN THE NOT ALL GROUP

      * PEOPLE SAY, GOD DONT HEAL ALL, BECAUSE

MAMA……………… DIED OF CANCER, AND SHE BELIEVED

I SAY THIS, WITH RESPECT   BUT WE NEED TO DEAL WITH IT

GRAND MA…….. DIED FROM SICKNESS, AND SHE BELIEVED

THIS IS HOW CIRCUMSTANCES, EFFECTS OUR BELIEF SYSTEM

WHAT YOU SEE & HEAR IN THE NATURAL    EFFECTS  /  SPIRITUAL

 

BRO. SO-SO………DIED & HE WAS THE BEST CHRISTIAN I KNOW

HE DID THIS, & THAT / NEVER DID NO WRONG

IF ANYBODY SHOULD HAVE GOT’IN HEALED, HE SHOULD OF 

YOUR BASICLY SAYING ITS BY OUR GOOD WORKS, OR HOLINESS THAT WE ARE HEALED     GOOD LITTLE TROOPER

ITS NOT BY OUR WORKS, THAT WE ARE HEALED……..BUT BY

THE WORKS THAT JESUS DID;  AT CALVARY ………..BELIEVE

I CAN’T ANSWER WHY THEY DIED,,,,,,BUT ; YOU CAN LIVE & BE HEALED 

WE CAN’T LET WHAT WE DONT KNOW

KEEP US FROM STANDING ON WHAT WE DO KNOW,

THE WORD OF GOD SAYS, CONCERNING HEALING

 

==================================================

 

  1. JESUS NEVER TURNED ANYONE DOWN,    SICK

     * 17       TIMES JESUS HEALED ALL  (GROUPS)

Acts 10:38 (KJV)
38  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

     * 47      TIMES JESUS HEALED ONE OR TWO AT A TIME

NO ONE WAS REJECTED

 John 21:25 (KJV)
25  And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

 

==================================================

 

III. ? IS IT GODS WILL FOR ALL TO BE SAVED ?

 

2 Peter 3:9 (KJV)
9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

SO,  IT IS,  GODS WILL, FOR ALL TO BE SAVED ?

IS ALL PEOPLE SAVED?  NO    THERE IS PEOPLE GOING TO HELL

SO THE SAME GOD THAT WILLS ALL TO BE SAVED, ALLOWS THEM TO GO TO HELL

THEY HAVE TO HEAR  THE WORD,    BELIEVE IT & RECIEVE IT

SO,  WHAT GOD ALLOWS,   DOESN’T MEAN ITS HIS WILL 

ADAM & EVE / FRUIT

IT IS THE SAME WAY WITH HEALING !!!

JUST BECAUSE GOD ALLOWS SOMEONE TO BE SICK,

DOESN’T MEAN ITS HIS WILL FOR THEM TO BE SICK.

 

===================================================================

 

PEOPLE SAY

GOD ALLOWED  THIS SICKNESS, TO COME ON ME, TO TEACH ME SOMETHING

YOU REALLY DONT BELIEVE THAT,   WHY YOU TAKEN MEDICINE

PRAY FOR A DOUBLE DOSE

MOST PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE THIS DON’T HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE OLD AND NEW COVENANT

 

 ================================================

 

  1. SICKNESS DOES NOT COME FROM GOD 

 

1st……………….. WHAT IS SICKNESS ?

NOAH WEB. DICT.

STATE OF BEING DISEASED, A MORBID STATE OF THE

BODY, IN WHICH THE ORGANS DO NOT PERFECTLY PERFORM THEIR NATURAL FUNCTIONS.

SICKNESS, IN MY OPION, IS NOTHING MORE, THAN THE PREMATURE STAGE OF DEATH.

SICKNESS WAS PART OF THE CURSE, = ADAM

Galatians 3:13 (KJV)
13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

 John 10:10 (KJV)
10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life,NOT DEATH and that they might have it more abundantly. PYSICAL & SPIRITUAL

SICKNESS COMES FROM ONE OF 3 WAYS

  1. SIN = WAGES OF SIN IS STILL DEATH
  2. ATTACK OF SATAN = SATAN HAS NO AUTHORITY OVER ME

                                          ONLY WHAT I ALLOW HIM TO HAVE

  1. NATURAL CAUSES = FALLEN WORLD / THINGS HAPPEN

                                                                         EVERYTHING AINT THE DEVIL

 

==================================================

 

BOTTOM LINE

THE WORD OF GOD, MAKES IT PERFECTLY CLEAR,  THAT IT IS GODS WILL FOR YOU TO BE HEALED.

 BUT,  FOR A PERSON TO SEE THIS, YOU MUST

FIRST UNDERSTAND THE CONNECTION OF HEALING & SALVATION

      KEEP THIS IN MIND

     * BOTH SIN & SICKNESS WERE A PART OF ONE CURSE, =  ADAM

        BOTH  BECAME A PART OF ONE REDEMPTION, =  JESUS

     * JESUS ATONED FOR, AND MADE PROVISION FOR SICKNESS TO BE

        HEALED, AS WELL AS SIN TO BE FORGIVEN 

     * JESUS PAID THE PRICE OF BOTH, AT THE CROSS

WE SEE THIS PERFECTLY DISPLAYED IN THE LORDS SUPPER

IM NOT TAKING AWAY, THE MAGNATUDE OF SALVATION

AGAIN, WE MUST SEE THAT HEALING, IS CONNECTED TO SALVATION

1 Corinthians 11:24 (KJV)
24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Matthew 26:27-28 (KJV)
27  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

 

BODY = HEALING     +     BLOOD = REMISSION OF SINS

THRE IS MANY SCRIPTURES, CONNECTING HEALING & SALVATION

Matthew 8:17 (KJV)
17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

 1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

DID YOU KNOW, JESUS HEALED YOU, BEFORE HE SAVED YOU

BEFORE THE CROSS,      THERE WAS A POST

     * SCOURAGING POST

     * CAT OF NINE TAILS

      * 39 STRIPES—–MEDICAL SCIENCE STATES THERE ARE 39 MAJOR DISEASES

THE CHURCH TODAY, HAS CHOSEN TO SEPARATE THIS HEALING, THAT JESUS HAS SO PAINFULLY PURCHASED , OUT OF THE ATONEMENT.

PRODUCING , A SALVATION ONLY MOVEMENT

ITS LIKE TAKING HALF OF THE COMMUNION 

 GOD CAN ONLY CONFIRM THE WORD THATS BEING PREACHED

 HEALING IS FOR EVERYONE,  LETS PREACH IT

 

==================================================

 

PART 2 

NOW THAT WE UNDERSTAND & BELIEVE ITS GODS WILL TO HEAL,       

LETS LOOK AT SOME OF THE REASONS , WHY  MANY ARE NOT

  1. HINDRINCES OF HEALING 

 

  1. NOT KNOWING  THE WORD / WILL OF GOD

 

  1. NOT UNDERSTANDING  THE OLD & NEW COVENANTS

 

  1. NOT UNDERSTANDING THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

 

  1. UNFORGIVENESS

 

  1. UNBELIEF    ( BIGGEST ONE )

 

 

 WHAT IS UNBELIEF ? 

NOAH WEB. DIC. = THE WITHHOLDING OF BELIEF / OPPOSITE OF FAITH

did you know 

A PERSON CAN HAVE FAITH AND UNBELIEF AT THE SAME TIME

                        O———- TUG-A-WAR———-O

WHEN THIS HAPPENS, IT NAGATES, OR STANDS STILL,  EQUAL FORCES

FATHER ,WITH THE BOY WITH A DUMB SPIRIT

Mark 9:22-24 (KJV)    RIGHT BEFORE JESUS HEALS THE BOY
22  And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

 
23   Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

 
24  And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord,                                    I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

HE HAD FAITH, BECAUSE HE HAD ALREADY WENT TO THE DISCIPLES,

THEN ON TO JESUS

THERE ARE 2 CASES OF UNBELIEF , GOING ON HERE, SIMANTANISLY

DISCIPLES HAD FAITH & UNBELIEF

Mark 9:28 (KJV)   
28  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?


HOLD YOUR PLACE & GO TO

Matthew 17:20 (KJV)
20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21  Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

 NOT THE SPIRIT / BUT THIER UNBELIEF

JESUS, TELLS THEM THEIR PROBLEM,    THEN HOW TO FIX IT

NOW,  THIS WAS THE    BIG  12 

WE SEE IN MATT. 10 THEY HAD BEEN GIVEN POWER TO HEAL THE SICK

& CAST OUT DEVILS

THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN DOING IT,……………………………………………… WHAT HAPPENED HERE

HOW DID THIER UNBELIEF COME IN ? 

BACK TO

Mark 9:20 (KJV)
20  And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

     * EPPILICTICK FIT     * SEZIOUR 

THIER UNBELIEF, CAME BY WHAT THEY SAW & HEARD

THIER NATURAL SENSES KICKED IN

WHEN WE ALLOW THE THINGS WE SEE, TASTE, FEEL & HEAR

( CIRCUMSTANCES )  HUMAN EXSPERIENCES

 TO OVER POWER OUR FAITH IN GODS WORD

IT NAGATES ( STOPS ) THE PROMISES OF GOD IN OUR LIVES

————————DOG EVENT STORY——————————–

GREAT 

EXAMPLE   

 

  1. 5:22-42 JAIRUS  DAUGHTER

 

Mark 5:35-36 (KJV)
35  While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

 
36  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue,Be not afraid, only believe.

LOOK AT ME, STAY FOCUSED ON WHAT YOU ALREADY BELIEVED ME FOR, WHEN YOU FIRST CAME TO ME

 

==================================================

  

  1. HOW DOES UNBELIEF COME AT US TODAY ?

Romans 10:17 (KJV)
17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 
LIKEWISE  UNBELIEF COMES BY HEARING & SEEING ANYTHING CONTRARY TO GODS WORD, AND HIS PROMISES

* DOCTOR  * FAMILY & FRIENDS  * NEWS / TV / INTERNET

SMITH WIGGLESWORTH  WOULDNT  LET A  NEWSPAPER  INTO HIS HOUSE

James 4:7 (KJV)
7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

==================================================

 

 

     BATTELING UNBELIEF

 *BAD DOCTORS REPORT    

 * BAD ADVICE FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS

 * WRONG KNOWLEDGE

 * LACK OF KNOWLEDGE

JESUS WANTS YOU WELL, SO IF YOUR SICK, HE WANTS YOU HEALED

RESISTING SICKNESS

 

 God is good!  We serve a good God!

 So what do we do with this information we just heard Joey share.  We can see God has provided our healing so we can be healthy.  But, people are still sick.  So how do I apply this knowledge and walk it out in my life?  How do you use faith to receive your healing? 

I’m going to present God’s Word to you today in a way that you may have never heard of or thought about…..I want to talk to you about RESISTING SICKNESS!

When symptoms of sickness come, we live in a society that yields instead of resists.  They identify with the sickness and tell everyone about it…..speaking words of doubt and unbelief….people will say things like “I have the crud”…and they will post it on facebook.  The bible says life and death are in the power of the tongue.  You won’t always get what you pray but you’ll get what you say.  Those are not the kind of seeds we want to plant, we need to dig those back up or pray for crop failure!

 I want to share some things I have learned and been taught about resisting sickness.  I’m going to give you some practical examples and testimony after I share a few truths that will help you to operate in faith.

It is important to understand that there are Spiritual Laws that govern faith.

Romans 3:27 (KJV)
27  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

GOD’S WILL IS NOT AUTOMATIC

 

Knowing that there are spiritual laws that govern faith will help you in your fight and reassure you that it is not God withholding your healing.  We are not waiting for God to move.  He is waiting for us to believe and receive.

 

Psalm 138:2 (NKJV)
2  I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.

 

Psalm 89:34 (NKJV)
34  My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

 

I can’t call the electric company and ask them to turn on my stove, etc!  I’m already connected to the power company! 

 

1 Corinthians 3:9 (KJV)
9  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

 

Let’s look at just a few of the laws of faith you can find in the Bible:

 

  1. ROMANS 10:17 says FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD

If faith comes by hearing and hearing God’s Word, then that means every time you hear God’s Word, faith is released to you.  Every Word of God contains the faith in it you need to believe and release the power of God.

 

You don’t have to say “ I wish I had faith like Pastor”…..

 

When sickness comes against you – get in the Word….spend hours…find verses, write them, meditate on them.

 

Proverbs 4:20-22 (KJV)
20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

 

  1. II. GALATIONS 5:6 says  FAITH WORKS BY LOVE 

James 3:16 (KJV)
16  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

 

Ephesians 4:27 (KJV)
27  Neither give place to the devil.

 

III.  SPEAK YOUR FAITH       

 

 Mark 11:12-26 (KJV)
12  And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
13  And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
14  And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

 

Note*  Jesus answered the fig tree…you don’t answer without being spoken to.….what did the fig tree say?  It had leaves, so it was saying it had figs…….         Does your sickness talk to you?  Sure it does!  It says things like “you don’t feel well, you need to lie down” 

15  And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
16  And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
17  And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
18  And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
19  And when even was come, he went out of the city.

20  And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
21  And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
22  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
25  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

 

Testimony – wake up with pain in legs at night- straighten legs for a minute.

 

Sometimes a healing might be a progressive healing…you might not receive it instantly, but slowly…..people receive differently….

Many times we give up too soon….say it didn’t work….etc…. 

It’s important to remember the lesson from the fig tree….the power of God began to work when Jesus spoke but they didn’t see the manifestation on the leaves until the next morning.

When we are believing for healing it is important that we don’t give up!

 

Testimony of joints before going to Jubilee

 

Proverbs 4:20-22 (KJV)
20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

 

 

Ephesians 6:10-17 (KJV)
10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

 

Jude 1:20 (KJV)
20  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

 

  1.   FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD

James 2:20 (KJV)
20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

 

Abraham and Rahab mixed faith with God’s Word.  How?  Because they believed God, they moved in the direction of what they believed…..God spoke and because they believed….it caused a reaction on thier part……releasing the power of God

You will act on what you believe. 

 

   … if your sick and you pray and speak to that sickness to leave…. You can’t stay in bed.  You are going to have to get up and act well and start doing what you would normally do.

 

 James 2 also says by works faith is make perfect 

 

But actions don’t produce faith….

 

You can’t say “if I act like I believe it will work”  and then quit taking their medicine thinking faith will come…..it doesn’t work like that….a person that does that could die. 

But if a person already has faith, it won’t be complete until they act on it.

 

  (Ex.  meeting Mary in Shreveport)

 

Testimony of back after ironing 2 pieces of clothing/ then wanted to plant plants flower beds

Testimony of spirit of fear

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

 

 I want to remind you of some truths that will help you stand with confidence when you begin to speak to the mountain

 

Hebrews 6:18 says it is impossible for God to lie

Titus 1:2 says God cannot lie

 

 Psalm 138:2 (KJV)
2  I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. 

 

Psalm 89:34 (KJV)
34  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 

1 John 5:14-15 (KJV)
14  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

 

 

1 Corinthians 3:9 (KJV)
9  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 

 

You ever work on a team?  Other laborers?  But they won’t do their part?  One gets everything ready but needs the other laborers to finish the task… and the others are waiting for the one to complete it.  God has given us everything we need and we are supposed to use what he has given us…..His Word!  We need to do our part!
