of jesus with your right and lifted see heavenly father let our heavens remain open in the name of jesus let every strange fire be quenched let every working of the enemy be arrested and let every projection to interfere with your original plan and purpose for our gathering be overruled shall we refuse to be ignorant of the devices of the enemy therefore we override and overtame every working of the enemy in the name of jesus for one minute lift up your voice arrest and override any working of the enemy against your life against your family against the work of your hands and against our gathering this morning let that power break and be overreading in the name of jesus christ the son of the living god and let the glory of our god be revealed [Music] in jesus mighty name say oh lord have your way in our midst this morning do that which you alone can do and let none of us walk out of this service the same way we walked in in jesus mighty name and let the people of god say amen put your hands together give him praise and you may be seated in the wonderful presence of the lord hallelujah we thank god for his faithfulness we salute the presence of bishop emeritus men are gnum and reverend jesse anom thank you so much for being here to support us we thank god for the wonderful choir reverend if he and the team for taking us to the throne amen and preparing us and many others working behind the scenes those who have been praying throughout the night praying this morning that god will show up in the service may the lord bless you amen and guess what without you and i there is no service so let’s thank god that he gave us an opportunity to come amen hallelujah this morning by the instructions of our papa the archbishop we will stay with our focus on the holy spirit amen he said holy spirit emphasis a couple of weeks back and we’ve stayed with it every now and then we move to talk about something else and come back but the emphasis over the past over two months has been on the holy spirit amen and this morning we will stay with the bible says god who in times past hebrews chapter 1 verse 1 spoke through the prophets has in these last days spoken through his son and the son every now and then told us i must go that the holy spirit will come so we know the holy spirit is so vital to our existence as christians amen and we’ve we’ve come a long way we’re talking about the fact that we need to keep being filled with the holy spirit we talk about the presence the power of the holy spirit what he does who he is etc etc then we focus on the gifts of the holy spirit talk a little about the um the ministry gifts the gifts that god through jesus gave to the church the apostles the prophets the evangelists the teachers and the pastors we’ve talked a little about that but today we want to focus on the last no let me say okay the last of the power gifts amen hallelujah please go with me to the book of uh first corinthians chapter 12 and let’s begin from the paul said in verse one that concerning spiritual gifts i do not want you to be ignorant amen concerning spiritual gift we’ve talked about the importance of the holy spirit who he is how how essential he is to our work and then paul is saying that there are certain games that the holy spirit gives and it is in our interest to understand them to appreciate them so we can appropriate them amen and then we can we can understand how they will pray for the benefit of the church amen so it’s a concerning spiritual gift i would not have you ignorant i don’t want you to be ignorant amen i don’t want you to be ignorant why because they are vital for our christian existence amen let me go to verse he said dive please use the new king james for the sake he said there are diversities of gifts by the same spirit meaning different types of gifts by the same spirit there are differences of ministries by the same lord and there are diversities of activities but it is the same god who works all in all but the manifestation of the spirit is given to each one for the prophet of all amen diversities of gifts diversities of ministries diversities of activities and when you look at the christian world you see truly that there are different different activities different gifts different ministries all by and through the working of the same holy spirit amen then my servant says the gift is given to each and every one of us for the prophet of all amen a quick walk through the gifts from verse 8 to one is given the word of wisdom through the same spirit through the spirit to another the word of knowledge through the same spirit to another faith by the same spirit to another gifts of healing by the same spirit to another the working of miracles to another prophecy to another descending of spirit to another different kinds of tongues to another the interpretation of tongues but one and the same spirit works all these things distributing to each one individually as he wills amen so we’ve talked about the revelation give the revelation gifts are they the word of wisdom the word of knowledge and the descending of spirits the power gifts are the gift of faith the gifts of healing and the working of miracles and a few weeks ago bishop essando spoke about the working of miracles bishop john and he spoke about the gift of faith amen that the vocal gives us a bishop every now and then kept reminding us the book our gifts are the gift of prophecy the gift of diverse kinds of tongues and the gift of interpretation of tongues amen that we spend time to talk about that in the past today we want to focus on the gifts of healing i’m not sure why but he said gifts he pluralize it and then they say the working of miracles but this one is the gifts of healing the amplified says in verse 9 to another wonder working faith by the same spirit holy spirit and to another the extraordinary powers of healing by the same spirit extraordinary powers of healing by the same spirit amen and then you go to verse 28 he said and god has appointed these in the church first apostles the new king james says second prophet third teachers after that miracles then gifts of healings helps administrations than varieties of tongues etc etc it is god who set them it is god who appoints such officers it is god who gives the gifts through his spirit and by the working of his spirit so the gifts of healing are power gifts deployed by the holy ghost through his servants to meet needs hallelujah you see the white spirit runs through you can count the word spirit in from verses 1 to verse 11 so many times he kept saying the spirit guilt by the spirit dives by the spirit by the spirit to by the spirit through the spirit why so that you and i will never forget that these gifts are not gifts that we by our own power can manifest they are gifts operated through the power of the holy spirit amen that is why he kept reminding us by the spirit through the spirit by the spirit through the spirit these are gifts that he administers so if you don’t have the holy spirit there is no way you can operate these gifts anybody operating any of these gifts without the holy spirit it’s not operating the true gifts of god amen because the through the true gifts of the holy spirit are operated through the holy spirit and by the power of the holy spirit amen so that is one of the things you need to understand and because it is by the spirit and through the spirit they are not our possessions to use us and when we will they are by his spirit to one to another to one to another means that god gives to each person severally as he wills oh hallelujah if it was left for man to decide that some of us they will make sure you never get a gift but thank god it doesn’t even depend on your pastor it is the choice of god put your hands together and giving praise they may not like you they may not appreciate you but god can give you a mind-blowing gift that would change your testimony and your story may god single you out for a miracle in the name of jesus they are operated by the spirit and he gives to everyone as he wills amen the source is the holy spirit and he gives to everybody as he wills this holy spirit was said over and over is our comforter our strengthener he’s our standby according to john chapter 14 verse 26 you don’t need to go to that you can keep it that is who he is the amplifies is he’s our comforter our counselor our helper our intercessor advocates strengthen up and stand by the holy spirit this is who he is and may he strengthen you and may he empower you to operate the gifts he has already deposited within you amen he is assault that’s nothing that you and i have received there’s nothing that we have that we did not receive first corinthians chapter four by seven it is a gift from god and i like it the way he puts it in second corinthians chapter five chapter three and verse five he says this now it is not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves but our sufficiency is of god who also have made us able ministers of the new testament not of the letter but of the spirit for the letter killing but the spirit giveth life amen is that not that we are sufficient of ourselves we are not sufficient of ourselves we need to depend on him we need to rely on him we need to draw closer to him for the manifestation of all these gifts that he gives to the church what then is the gifts of healing the gifts of healing are gifts that cause physical healing amen it brings physical healing the healing of the human body the healing of individuals the capacity to cause instantaneous and complete healing of the body to bring people back to good health hallelujah some commentators believe that this power is a power that comes upon god’s people at particular times through the working of the holy spirit to heal or to cure diseases amen on extraordinary occasions god will manifest the gift i will explain in a minute why i see extraordinary situations the person exercising their gifts does not always require that the one receiving have enough corresponding faith because sometimes the gift of praise on the faith of the one operating it so even when sometimes the people do not believe the faith of the sermon of god carrying the gift can override the unbelief of the one receiving it amen and there are other times when your faith is required to match up jesus will say your faith has made you who your faith has made you whole do you believe that i can do this do you believe that i can do that let it be done unto you according to your faith but sometimes by the manifestation of the gift of healing it can even override your unbelief and doubt hallelujah may god override somebody’s doubt and give you your healing in the name of jesus praise the lord and he said gifts because there are different kinds of healing it’s not just one stereotyped one format different different kinds of healing amen and healing generally means wholeness wholeness god wants to make somebody who and that is why he plays the gift in the church hallelujah god is still healing today oh how many believe god is so healing today the gift of healing is still in operation sometimes you should be careful what commentaries you read because some commentators believe that all the gifts of the holy spirit came to an end when the last apostle died that cannot be true because jesus said i am with you to the end of time not until the apostles time peter on the day of pentacles after he preached he said you shall receive that gift and this promise is unto you and to your children’s children until the end how unfair will it be if god were to take away prophecy healing and everything tongues and everything just because the last apostle died no the gifts are still in operation that is why you are still speaking in tongues put your hands together and give him praise those who say that they don’t believe that tongues the gift of tongues are preached today no they think it came to an end when the last apostle died but the reason why we say that it comes upon the people of god at extraordinary times to confirm the word of god is because when you look in scripture you will see that there were times when people close to powerful men of god did not get healed which means that truly is according to the will of god amen paul did not heal timothy when you read first timothy chapter 5 verse 23 timothy was not well he said he said take a little wine for your stomach’s sick praise the lord is that on in your bible he said drink no more water but use a little while this is the scripture some people use to boost so when they want to boost this they change their names to timothy [Laughter] paul said drink a little wine hey brother what stomach problem do you have but what he’s just saying is that timothy had a condition and paul prescribed that even though paul had power to lay hands and he would be well for this case for some reason he said this you’re offering issues with the stomach add a little wine to what you drink it means take a little medication medicine is not evil then we have epiphroditos philippines chapter 2 verse 27. he had a challenge he had a problem he let trophy moss in military sick second timothy chapter four verse 20 what it means is that if paul had his way all these people would have raised that in your bible arrest us are both at current but trophy most have i left at military’s sick paul how can you leave a man sick because paul was not god don’t come to the place where you think you are you are replacing god that you are god on earth that you can do what you like no no no no it is the gift of the holy spirit he activates it he will praise it as he wills amen put your hands together and give him praise why am i saying this when you lack understanding then you hold the men of god as though they were god and nobody is god there is only one god and the truth is that none of us is god but sometimes we make men look as though they are god nobody is god and this these scriptures also encourage and brings you to a place of comfort because sometimes he said i prayed i prayed but god did not heal the person pray for the next one god may heal that one it’s not in your power it’s not according to your will one man of god was preaching one of the tele evangelists he said if i pray for a man and god forbid he dies i’m not going to stop praying for others but sometimes some of us are questioning ourselves why did i pray for my mother i prayed for my mother and god still didn’t heal my mother and my mother passed we don’t have all the answers but the gifts of healing still do operate put your hands together and give him praise he said if i you if i pray for somebody and god chooses not to heal don’t get discouraged keep praying for others amen and god will honor his word second timothy second sorry third john is only one chapter verse two says beloved i wish about all things and you can give that i pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health king james says good health just ask your soul prosper that is my prayer for you that you will prosper in all things that you will be in good health do you know this desire is greater than healing or some of you don’t know eh good health is better than healing healing is when something goes wrong and god brings you back to wholeness but good health means that sickness will not even come may god bring you to the place of good health amen that you would deploy the gifts of healing to help others as a matter of fact the one operating the gift most of the time cannot operate the gift on himself that is why paul himself had a thorn in the flesh and for some reason he said he prayed three times god said my grace is sufficient wow that’s second corinthians 12 and verse 7 a thorn in his flesh perfected him paul had a condition we don’t know what it is he said there was a thorn in his flesh the same paul and i’ll show you and i wonder if i will if i’m able to get there today to show you some of the great things god did through paul yet the thorn in his flesh he could not deal with so don’t look at any man of god or any woman of god and he said you pray for others so why is it that you have an infirmity they are not god let’s stop judging people that this man prayed and prayed and prayed and still the man died he is not god hallelujah one man of god when we were growing up you know if i mentioned this today most of you will know he was one of this major major evangelistic so many great works evangelistic and mighty crusades and one time he had a crusade and he normally preached in tea and then his english was not too strong but he was very very strong and he said he went to the crusade god and he published and he told them bring the blind bring the crippled bring all manner of sicknesses because god will do on this the first day of the crusade nothing happened not even headache was healed and then he went to his hotel and fell on his face and he was crying saying ratty i don’t know what could many must see why have you embarrassed me like this god i made a boost in your name and you just embarrassed me and god asked him did you ask me before you started bragging did you ask me so even though he went into prayer to accuse god he repented and said god i repent i am not god i had no right to do what i did the next day lord have mercy cripples were walking blind were seen god descended into the crusade as he did at other times but god was just showing and proving to him that you are not god you need me it doesn’t matter how powerful god uses you always remember that it is a gift from god you do not replace god put your hands together and give him praise you cannot hallelujah many dispensations have come and gone the dispensation of the father the dispensation of the sun we are now in the dispensation of the holy spirit but let’s step back a little to demystify this wonderful gift that we’re talking about you see when you act acknowledge and understand the fact that god is a creator how many believe god is a creator oh yes that is very clear genesis chapter one verse one in the beginning god created the heavens and the earth genesis chapter 1 verse 26 god said let us make man verse 27 god created male and female created he them amen you go to genesis chapter 2 verse 7 god formed man breathed into him and he became a living soul you go to psalm 24 verse 1 the earth is the lord and the fullness thereof the people and everything belong to god god is a creator and you and i must understand that everybody who manufactures a product can fix it when it goes wrong the one who manufactures the car when your car breaks down he has spare parts to repair it so if god created you and i he has all the spare parts we need to fix our bodies and make us whole again put your hands together and give him praise because he created you it shouldn’t be any wonder that he can fix you hallelujah complicated gadgets to our normal mind can be fixed somebody created an aircraft when the aircraft malfunctions they can fix it somebody created your car sophisticated things computers people can also sit down and diagnose the problem and fix it so you should not be surprised when god raises a servant and puts within him the ability to diagnose your problem and to fix it but sometimes because we lack understanding when god empowers anybody to do that we think that person is god and we start following them about they are ordinary men and women like you and i but god can work through anybody to fix anything he wants to fix specifically when we talk about the gifts of healing amen listen to what he said the manufacturer had to say come to exodus chapter 15 verse 26 he said and he said if thou will diligently hack into the voice of the lord your god and will do what that which is right in his sight and will give ear to his commandments and keep all his statues i will put none of these diseases upon thee which i have brought upon the egyptians for what i am the lord that he led me amen he is the god that healeth he said the diseases i put on the people of egypt i will not put it on you what does it mean god can put diseases on people and god can heal just take note of that it will come back again during our discussion deuteronomy chapter 7 verse 14 he said thou shalt be blessed above all people there shall not be male or female bearing among you or among your cattle and the lord will take away from thee all sicknesses and will put none of the evil diseases of egypt which there are noise upon you but he will lay upon he will lay them upon all them that hate you say amen we didn’t say it it was god who said it those who hate us he said you put diseases on them and afflict them but as for us may be far away from us right in the first dispensation the dispensation of the father he kept telling his people i am the god who fixes your body i’m the god who makes you who if you will walk with me if you will save me if you will honor me if you will obey me i will take sickness away from you none of you will be barren may that be the testimony of your family and this house in the name of jesus hallelujah these are the benefits of serving god i’m saying this for you to understand that god did not start healing in the new testament he’s been taking care of the conditions of his people from time of immemorial in psalm 103 when david was rejoicing before the lord and praising the lord and encouraging himself to worship you come to verse 2 he said bless the lord oh my soul and forget not all his benefits then he began to list them from these three who forgives all your iniquities and who heals all your diseases may god heal all your diseases in the name of jesus why is he saying this it means that there are some things that can happen to create pain and to distort the peace within your body and god said even when that happens i will heal you and bring you back to wholeness may that be your testimony in the name of jesus i said may that be your testimony he has the power to do it and may he do it in your life may he deploy the working of his spirit in the lives of the church to affect to transform and to make his people whole again in the name of jesus today we release the healing power of god to enter your life entire body and correct every error in the name of jesus he’s the god who healeth all our diseases in the tournament chapter 32 verse 39 that’s one of the scriptures that was very scary when we were in school we were scripture we lent and we say wow this god is mighty see now that i even i i am he and there is no god with me then he said i kill and i make a lie wow i wound and i heal neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand may you not be a recipient of the negative but may you rather be a beneficiary of the positive there are reasons why god will kill others but may god give you life there are reasons why god will wound some people but for you may he heal you the power to heal is in his hands so many examples when you look at abraham abraham in genesis chapter 20 prayed for abhimalek and god healed abhimalek and he’s south of baroness verse 17 and 18 abraham prayed pray to god and god healed abimelech that is the new king james and his wife and his female servants and their boy children because god has struck them with baroness because abhimalek took sarah into his home because abraham says sarah is my sister and god said hey don’t even try it may god defend you and may god protect that which belongs to you god visited the house of abimelech even though it was abraham’s error that almost drove his wife into trouble god struck all of them with barren but he prayed and god healed them amen so i’m saying that god was healing right from the old testament look at rebecca and rachel again they had issues and challenges of barrenness genesis 25 21 isaac pleaded with the lord for his wife because she was buried and the lord granted his plea rebecca his wife conceived genesis 30 verse 22 and god remembered rachel and god listen to her and open her womb may every barren situation be visited by the holy ghost in the name of jesus look at the classic example of neymar there are so many stories we can learn from the story of neymar the healing of naman in second kings chapter five these are all old testament i’m just telling that god has a track record of healing so the gifts of healing declared in the new testament is just a continuation of what god has been doing all the years hallelujah neymar was a syrian general powerful in the strange part in verse one he said the bible said god had given victories to syria through this man but syria was not a godly nation the lord had given victory through this man and through one of their conquests they brought in a slave girl from israel and this slave girl invest 4 said oh i wish meanwhile you see verse 1 says even though he was so powerful he was a leper he was suffering from leprosy so you see sometimes we all look so good but people are suffering from all kinds of things all kinds of things hallelujah when you come to verse 3 the young lady spoke to the master to the mistress and from the mistress to the master if only my master went with the prophet who is in samaria he would heal him of his leprosy the small girl knew something she believed that she knew that god had power through his servants to heal and quickly the message got to them to naaman from naaman to the king the man told the king the king said oh that is good news take a letter from me i go to the king of israel and he wrote a letter to the king of israel and naaman himself took silver he took gold he took changes of raymond on his journey i don’t know it means he had a revelation he believed that when somebody did something good for him he will have to also show appreciation there are so many stories so many messages in this particular message but that’s not my focus for today verse six he brought the letter to the king of israel which said now the advice when this letter comes to you that i have sent naaman my sermon to you that you may heal him of his leprosy [Music] when the king received it he rented his garment he tore his clothes look at verse seven and it happened when the king of read this letter that he tore his clothes and said that’s the message i want you to get he said am i god to kill and make alive that this man sends a man to me to heal him of his leprosy what was the king saying it is god who has the power to do this put your hands together for the king of syria the king of israel but you see his mistake was that he didn’t realize that he was a representative of this god the king wrote the letter to the wrong person it was the prophet who was the solution not the king so you may be a king and lack spiritual authority put your hands together for this great god to one is given to another is given to one is given to another is given that king did not have the power to kill republicans when he lies ahead he said what is this that this kid is crying about send him over to me that he will know that there is a god in israel and there is a prophet in israel when neymar got to the gate of the sermon of god he had an expectation verse 10 the bible said he sent his sermon to tell him go watch seven times in the jordan and you’ll be clean that’s all he didn’t come down because it was not his power it was the instruction of the lord and nema was very very angry you know he was very angry he said oh i taught this man who calm down stand before me do something verse 11 naaman became very furious and he went away and said indeed i said to myself he will surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the lord his god because he also believed that it was god who was going to heal him these people had an understanding that many of us lack any belief he will wave his hand over the place and heal the leprosy he was angry and this servant say hey master if the man told you to do something big you would have done so please humble yourself and do this simple one verse 14 when he obeyed he went down dipped seven times in the jordan according to the saying of the man of god and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child he was clean may god heal you of every spiritual leprosy in the name of jesus may god heal every hidden disease in your body like a healed demon praise the lord god has power to heal i can go on and on and on but you know that already you know god heals hezekiah prayed for the people of israel and god healed them of another condition because at that time they came to eat the passover without consecrating themselves and they knew disaster was near but king izakaya prayed in second chronicles chapter 30 verse 20 and the lord listened to hezekiah and he healed the people god hears prayer may god listen to your prayer and heal your relatives and your friends may god heal hear your prayer and heal you yourself may god hear your prayer man may god hear your prayer may god hear your supplications and turn something around in your life if god could hear and answer and respond and restore people to wholeness communities may god hear you in some of the cases they prayed themselves he had raped hell and healed him he had isaac and healed the wife may god heal your spouse and heal you and heal your children in the name of jesus hallelujah there are other extreme cases where god healed even waters and that is another extension of the use because you see the healing can be spiritual it can be physical it can be mental it can be emotional god can heal you in every area may god heal every physical sickness may he heal every emotional sickness may he heal you from every psychological illness in the name of jesus may you receive the complete healing of god may god make you whole this is the reason and the purpose for the gifts of healing to bring wholeness to the body of christ and why will god give such a gift because he knew and he knows and he understands that the world being what it is having an enemy in this world things will not remain the way they were made have you asked yourself why does the car manufacturer create spare parts you know some parts will wear out every good manufacturer will make sure there are spare parts to replace anything that goes wrong may god heal you in the name of jesus may god heal your family in the name of jesus david said oh lord my god i cried out to you and you healed me psalm 30 and verse 2 we don’t know when he cried but he said i cried out and you healed me oh lord you brought my soul up from the grave you have kept me alive that i should not go down to the pit it is your doing put your hands together and give him praise may god heal you may god keep you alive may god prevent you from going down to the pit david said it was you lord not my power not my carefulness we are alive today in dangerous time because god has kept us alive may the gifts of healing operate in your life who prayed in the church or prayed in your family in the name of jesus we are the grace of healing and the gift of healing i may talk about it in a moment hallelujah but so we see the dispensation of the father i can go on and on and on the word healing or healed alone appeared so many times in the bible 109 time the world healed it can be can be found in the new kingdom and i can tell you about hell he left i mean god kept healing people turning situations around bringing people back to wholeness may he do something in your life in the name of jesus then before the end of the dispensation of the father we started hearing about another dispensation coming the dispensation of the sun when you go to isaiah chapter 53 he began to talk about the sun he began to talk about the personality that was to come and the things that isaiah the prophet was saying were things that were to be to happen many many years after he described the whole error and the passion of christ what he will go through his suffering his pain and the purpose for it isaac 53 verse 5. he said but he was wounded for our transgressions he was bruised for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon him and by his tribes we are healed the amplified says he but he was wounded for our transgressions he was bruised for our guilt and iniquities the chastisement needful to obtain peace and well-being for us was upon him and with the stripes that wounded him we are healed and made old the strides that wounded him but for us holders what was isaac saying there is a personality coming who is going to pay the price for the healing of the generations to come he will obey it in his own body so when jesus came lived his life fulfilled his ministry at the end when it was time for him to be sacrificed the events sometimes are mind-blowing when you go to matthew chapter 27 verse 26 he said then pilate released barnabas unto them and when he had scorched jesus he delivered him to be crucified very interesting when he has coached him he delivered him to be crucified mark 15 15 the same thing the amplifies of pilot wishing to satisfy the crowd set barraba barabas free for them and after having jesus whipped he handed him over to be crucified let me take the same thing in the new living translation and i’ll tell you why so to pacify the crowd pilot release barrabas to them and he ordered jesus flogged with a led tipped whip then turned him over to the roman soldiers to be crucified if you are going to crucify a man why do you have to beat him he is going to die anyway the whipping and the crucifixion which is more painful answer me the man is going to die you are going to kill him why do you have to beat him before you kill him because god wanted him to pay the price for your healing the only reason why they whipped him tore his body scorched him with lead tipped whips to cut his body to man and disfigure his back was to make sure that the price is paid for every single sickness under the sun including sicknesses that are yet to be discovered put your hands together and giving praise otherwise they could have just hanged him and just finished it but no god said no no no there’s something else you must do there’s another assignment you must accomplish isaac prophesied that by your strengths their healing will be born so you need to go through it so he gave hims back to them and they whipped him when you watch the passion of christ it gives you an idea about what it was the barbaric evil wicked nature of the roman soldier leather whip with bones pieces of bone and metals on them that when you whip it goes round when you pull it tells the flesh the only reason why he allows his body to be mad is to pay the price for our healing put your hands together for this lord jesus and because he paid the price we have the authority through his name to command your healing may god heal your body in the name of jesus because the price is already paid in the name of jesus first peter 2 24 same message isaac said we are healed peter said we were healed because peter wrote this after jesus had paid the price and gone who in his own self bore our sins in his own body on the tree that we being dead to sin should live unto righteousness by whose strife we were healed if you were healed then you are healed be healed in the name of jesus no matter what the enemy throws at you may god give you solutions in the name of jesus accept the 10 verse 38 how god anointed jesus christ of nazareth with the holy ghost and with power who went about doing good but he didn’t stop there and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for god which was with him god anointed him with the holy ghost and with power he said the spirit of the lord is upon me because he has anointed me to do certain things may every prisoner be set free in the name of jesus may every chain break may every yoke be destroyed in the name of jesus may every demonic healing sickness in your body be fleshed out he’s the same yesterday today and forever he changes not what he did then he will do again may god do a new thing in your life may he turn your situation around may he heal your broken body they heal every disease whether it be congenital whether it be inherited whether it be a family disease or a sickness you contracted yourself today by the authority of the name of jesus will command it out of your body he paid the price that you and i may be healed god said i think not therefore the sons of jacob are not consumed malachi

healing power of god to turn every negative situation around and give you health and make you whole again in the name of jesus many are fighting for their lives anybody fighting for life gasping for breath today we speak life unto them we speak life unto them we speak life unto them some of the healings are miracles today we command the miracle of healing in the name of jesus these gifts are released in the house so you and i will have help and find help when we need it time will not allow us to go into specific examples that we see in the scriptures the next time god helps us to come together again we will look at the examples of jesus we will look at the examples of the disciples and we’ll see how much provision god has made for us but just suffice it to say that this god is still in the healing business it doesn’t matter what sickness they bought for you he has power to heal he has placed individuals and you see as a matter of fact he said these signs shall follow them that believe they are saying that shall follow you that is the ordinary grace of healing all of us by the grace of god come pray for the sick and they will be well when you go to mark chapter chapter 16 verse 17 he said these signs shall follow you you will not only speak with tongues you will also cast out devils go to verse 18 quickly quickly quickly you will take up sevens and if you drink any deadly thing it will not hurt you you will lay your hands on the sick and they shall recover this is to all believers it’s not to the people with the special gifts of healing is to every believer god has put power in your hands to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover may that be your testimony in the name of jesus even as god has appointed individuals to operate the gifts of healing he has empowered each and every one of us and we have been praying for people since secondary school and we have been seeing healing miracles and god can do it through you he said if anybody is afflicted let him what pray james chapter 5 from verse 30 if anybody is married let him sing psalms but he said if anybody is sick verse 14 let him call the eldest and let him pray and anoint him with oil that’s 15. and so the prayer of faith will save the sick and the lord will raise him up and if he has committed any sins he will be forgiven what is he saying some of the sicknesses are even a result of sin some are results of demonic activity it doesn’t matter what the source is god has power to heal you may god heal your body may god make you whole may god change something in your life and may god bring you to that place of faith that you will go beyond yourself and activate the gift to help others please rise up and let us pray [Applause] god is still healing and he will heal us he will make us whole oh lord have mercy sometimes when you see the condition and you hear the testimony you you i mean you will just mambo there are many that god has healed from dangerous situations from cancer
