Pain is a touch of Hell, healing is a touch of Heaven! Healing is a sample of everlasting life, renewal of the body, cure of disease. It’s a touch of resurrection!
When we experience Salvation, we get a little sample of what eternal Salvation and Heaven are going to be like. We have “tasted of the Heavenly gift and the powers of the World to come,” as His Word says (Heb.6:4,5). Likewise, when we get healed we have a little sample of what God is going to do one of these days. We don’t have the full resurrection yet but we can have a little TOUCH once in awhile! We already have His healing power manifest in our bodies through the Lord’s healing, but it will not be really complete until we receive our eternal supernatural indestructible bodies on which death no longer has any power or claim whatsoever!
One of these days when Jesus finally heals us of our old bodies, we’ll get NEW bodies, better than the old! That’s the best healing of all! When we die, that’s the final healing! Then we don’t have any more diseases, or sickness, or pain! That’s permanent healing, final resurrection! Hallelujah!
The hidden gifts are absolutely the most essential for leadership!
The outstanding supernatural visible miraculous gifts of the Spirit are not always the most necessary gifts for leadership in the Lord’s work. The gifts of HEALING, miracles, tongues, or even interpretation and prophecy don’t necessarily give you the wisdom, the discernment, the faith or the knowledge which you need to lead. If you want to be a leader for the Lord, you need to pray for those gifts that are not quite so obvious, not quite so manifest.
You can’t see faith, but others can see it on your face and can tell by the way you act how much faith you’ve got! You can’t feel knowledge, the ability to know things that other people don’t know or to know things beforehand! You can’t see wisdom, which is how to use the knowledge of God! You can’t hear discernment, yet without it you are going to be unaware of the Devil’s devices and totally unprepared and unarmed for his dirty work!
Those four unseen gifts are the most important gifts for a leader to have! In fact, you can’t even be a leader without those gifts, or at least some of them!–So pray for those gifts!–Amen?
I was out today as usual witnessing and tracting at some school, and I ran into many interesting people. Two people received the Lord and one of them was a German man who came to faith in Jesus. I just showed him two passages, John 1:12-13 and John 3:3-10 about being born again. It grew his faith instantly. he was so ready. Nice guy too. A new brother!
Then I ran into a Local man and his son, and I told him that God loved him after I had given him a tract, but he said that he didn’t think so.
I asked him why. He said, because the last 20 years he’s had nothing but problems. I asked him what his problems were, he said that for example his back had been hurting in his spine for 20 years.
I asked him if I could “bless” his back. (euphemism for praying for it)
He said sure! Continue reading “My First Instant Healing for Someone Else from Jesus. Hallelujah”
