Hi. I believe the Word on this page will increase your faith. This
page sheds the true light on many areas of bad doctrine. If you need a healing in your body, you can even receive your healing
as you read the healing scriptures herein.
Jesus healed all. Take for
instance, Matt 4:23-24 "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching
in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner
of disease among the people. And His fame went throughout all Syria, and they brought unto Him all sick people that
were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and
those that had the palsy, and He healed them."
Likewise, we can find many similar scriptures that Jesus healed
all, such as: Matt. 8:16-17, 9:35, 12:14-15, 14:35-36, and Luke 4:40. Not only did Jesus heal all, but we can find
where the 12 disciples healed all in Matt. 10:1 & 7, Luke 9:1 & 6, and not just the 12 disciples, but the 72. Luke
10:1 & 17-18 (These scriptures are written herein at the end of this page for your convenience.)
"But wait, Karl", one preacher told me.
"God doesn't heal everybody, or at least not right away. God always has His timing. Look
at the lame man at Gate Beautiful.
This line of thought does not line up. Please
The account of the lame
man at the gate Beautiful in Acts 3 is a beautiful
testament to God’s healing nature through His name. When I look at this scripture, this is what I see: Here is a
man that did not even ask for a healing, but he got one. The evidence points to the fact that he
did not know Jesus to ask for a healing before. The scripture says that Jesus went to Jerusalem in secret (John 7:10),
and while at the feast, the Jews there sought Him, but they did not know who He was (v.11). Even after teaching at the temple
both times, He was not received in that they did not recognize Him for who He was and they either sought to take Him (7:30)
or tried to stone Him (8:59). How would the lame man know to ask? "How then
shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And
how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach except they be sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!’ But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah saith, ‘Lord, who hath believed our report?’ So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Ro 10:14-17)
Jesus healed everybody that asked!!!
"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (Matt 21:22) (Other good ‘ask’
scriptures are listed as follows: Matt 7:7-11, 18:19, Luke 11:9-10(pertaining to the Holy Spirit), John 14:13-14, 15:7&16,
16:23-24, 1 John 3:22, and 5:14-16. (These scriptures are quoted at end of page.)
There was a preacher that told me that God doesn't heal everybody.
He used the crippled man at the pool of Bethesda for an excuse. My reply was sort of like this:
I see the account of the man at the pool of Bethesda (John
5) as another example of the nature of God who in compassion healed a man that did not even ask. Like the man at the Gate
Beautiful, this man did not know who Jesus was, nor did he ask. Even after being healed, he did not know who it was that healed
him, but called Him "the man that healed me. . "We find that the nature of God is to heal, evidenced
in that God sometimes even heals them that do not even know Him or know to ask Him. How much more when we know Him and call
upon Him? God is willing to go beyond that which is required of Him by His word, or beyond what is asked of Him. All we need
is a little faith. We can’t find anywhere in the Word where anyone asked Jesus to be healed and
He did not do it.
"But Karl," one preacher once said to me, "God has His time for everything. What about the account of Lazareth? When Jesus heard that he was sick,
Jesus stayed two more days where He was. God doesn’t always
heal everybody right away, but in His own timing."
Let me shine some light on this dark teaching:
The account of Lazarus from John 11: Preachers know
this story. Lazarus’ sisters sent to Jesus saying, "Lord, behold,
he whom Thou lovest is sick." (v. 3) It is recorded in v. 6-7 that "When He heard therefore that he was sick, He abode two days still in the same place
where He was. Then after that He saith to His disciples, ‘Let
us go into Judea again.’"
The bad doctrine is that God only moves when He wants to and in His timing. This may be partly
true in that God may sometimes only move as a gentleman when He is invited, or when our faith has risen due to the hearing
of the Word first, or to confirm His Word, etc., but we have to be careful of the poison interlaced with this doctrine. Verse
4 holds a clue: "When Jesus
heard that, He said, ‘This sickness
is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.’" Notice that Jesus knew
that Lazarus was already dead at this time. How do I know that? By the word Jesus spoke, ‘This sickness is not unto death.’ What
is meant by 'death'? Is Jesus speaking as ". . . God, who quickeneth the dead and calleth those things
that are not as though they were." according to Ro 4:17? Technically there is no contradiction,
in that ‘death’ here in the Greek means a permanent leaving of this world because
of sin. In this regard, Lazarus did not die. Notice that Jesus did not speak a healing word like He did for the centurion
in Matt. 8:13, but mentioned ‘death’. What other clues are there? Verse 17 says, "Then when Jesus came,
He found the he had lain in the grave four days already." Jesus
waited two days and then went, and when He got there, Lazarus had been dead for four days already. Jesus was only one day’s
journey away in Bethabara, about 30 miles from where Lazarus was in Judea, (see John 1:28 and 10:40), so this means that Lazarus
must have died shortly after the messengers left to tell Jesus, and when Jesus heard it, he was dead for one day already.
You see, God was not letting Lazarus suffer. Lazarus might have been having a good ole time in the spirit realm for all we
know. Maybe he was in Abraham’s bosom. (Luke 16:22) According to the words of Jesus, "Our friend
Lazarus sleepeth; . . " (John 11:11). Jesus used similar language
to describe 'death' when he went to raise the girl from the dead at the ruler's house: Luke 8:52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she
is not dead, but sleepeth . (Parallel "sleepeth" scriptures are: Mark 5:39 and Luke 8:52.)
The devil has also tried to twist around verse 4 of John 11:
"This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified
thereby." The devil tries to say that
God either put this sickness and death on Lazarus or allowed it to happen so that He could receive the glory from his healing/resurrection.
A study of the Greek here would clarify the word ‘but’ as Strong's Concordance word # NT235, neuter plural of NT:243; properly, other things, i.e. (adverbially) contrariwise (in many relations).
In the KJV it is always interpreted as one of these following words: and,
but (even), howbeit, indeed, nay, nevertheless, no, notwithstanding, save, therefore, yea, yet. The word ‘for’ can mean ‘abundantly’ or 'instead' from the Strong's #5228. You see, God’s glory comes from the healing,
not the sickness. The scripture could read thus, "This sickness is not unto death, nay, instead
the glory of God." In a similar way the devil has tried to twist other scriptures such as John 9:3 below.
One more note about Lazarus that you may not have thought of: We have a covenant promise for healing,
but I can not find anywhere where God guarantees He will raise everyone from the first natural death as we know it, although
the commandment is given to the disciples to raise the dead. Once again, we find another scripture that shows that God in
His nature sometimes goes beyond what is required of Him by His word, and even today, through His name, the dead are still
John 9:3 Who Sinned? Many have used these verses from John 9 in a vain attempt to prove that God sometimes allows sickness. If that
is the case, then the 'gospel' is not 'good news'. This scripture deserves some needed attention and Holy Ghost insight. Please
read on: John 9:2 And his disciples asked him,
saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind ? 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. KJV The bad doctrine is that God allowed
this man to be born blind so that the works of God could later be made manifest in him. This is a silly as saying, "God makes
you sick so He can be glorified through the healing". This is obviously wrong. Some of the confusion comes from the word 'but'
(Strongs #235, as defined a few paragraphs earlier, which can mean 'nay', 'notwithstanding' or 'nevertheless'). Also,
there were no punctuation marks at all in the original Greek, in which case the sentence could be made into two sentences
maybe. Our english version becomes much more clear now, if written like this: Neither hath this man sinned,
nor his parents. Notwithstanding, that the works of God should be made manifest in him.. However, most of the confusion
comes from the humanistic conclusion that if the blindness was not cause by sin, then God must have caused it or allowed it.
I would rather blame the devil, whom the bible names as a liar, the thief that comes to steal, kill &
destroy, the roaring lion seeking who he may devour, the prince & power of the air, the god of this world, the deceiver
of nations, the accuser of the brethren and he is the enemy of the Kingdom of God. Far be it from me to blame the Way, Truth
& the Life & the One who came to give us life more abundantly, who was manifested to destroy the works of the devil.
However, if you insist on disagreeing with me on this and say that God allowed this blindness so that He could be glorified
through the healing, then at least think of it in this way: God allowed Adam and Eve their choice to eat of the forbidden
fruit, and for sin and death to enter the world, and for satan to crawl on his belly and eat the dust of the earth, (and man
is made of dust, and to dust he will return), and our redemption only comes through Jesus Christ. God's desire is to save,
heal, deliver and set free, and if we do not receive, the problem is somewhere on our end or maybe inbetween. (By 'inbetween'
I mean such as when the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood the angel of God delaying the answer to Daniel's prayer
in Daniel chapter 10.) If you believe different than this, well, then, the Word is alive and powerful, and is a discerner
of the thoughts and intentions of your heart. I say to the church, 'Arise, and take your dominion and authority in the name
of Jesus Christ. Let us all repent of our murmuring and complaining. Let us be filled with the Holy Ghost and power and let
us speak as the oracles of God, and take the land of promises in the name of Jesus.'
The BAD DOCTRINE of "GOD ALLOWS SICKNESS": One Baptist preacher said to me, "But
Karl, God is all powerful. To say that God does not allow sickness is to say that God is not all powerful."
There is a simple explanation: God has given authority to the church (the believers) in His name. This
answers all the questions, such as: if God is all powerful, and therefore, all sickness must be allowed by God, then what
about all the scriptures that say that the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10),
or that he comes as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet 5:8), and why are evil spirits
associated with diseases? Is not this what the Pharisees said to Jesus, that He casts out devils by the prince of devils?
There are way too many scriptures to contradict the doctrine that God allows sickness. If that were true, then why pray for
the sick? If God allowes sickness, then wouldn't you would be praying against God's will? Doesn't this doctrine produce doubt
instead of faith, and isn't it contrary to God's nature to save, heal, deliver and set free? However, some would argue that
if God does not allow sickness, then God is not all powerful, since people sometimes get sick. Are not there many scriptures
that say that God is all powerful? Yes, God is all powerful, and created all things. (many scriptures) Jesus 'spoiled
all principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it'. (Col 2:15) So what then?
The answer is simple: God gave the church authority over the devil. Luke 10:18-19 says, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpians,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
There are numerous scriptures that speak of the power we have through the Holy Ghost and the name of Jesus, such as the Great
Comission. Furthermore, I would also say that the Lord gave dominion over the earth to man, as we find in Genesis 1:26 which
says, "And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth,
and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.'" (The
Bible repeats this theme in verses 28 through 30.) Although this dominion is compromised somewhat through the fall of Adam's
sin, it is reinstated after the flood, Genesis 9:1-3: "And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto
them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the
earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your
hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall
be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." However, there was also a warning
against sin, continuing to Gen 9:5-6, "And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand
of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of
man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man." Many people blame God for the death of a loved one, but this scripture
seems to indicate that He requires the life of man at his brother's hand, or fellow man. This idea becomes
more clear in Ps 115:16 "The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's:
but the earth hath he given to the children of men." Likewise, Amos 3:7 says, "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets." Even the Lord will do nothing unless He at least reveals it first unto man. Man has dominion, although
in the New Testament, satan is referred to as 'the god of this world', and 'the prince and power of the air', therefore satan is obviously allowed some sort of authority, but James 4:7 says, "Submit yourself to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Through Jesus, we now have authority in both Heaven AND Earth.
Jesus gave us, the church, (or disciples if you will), this authority, as written in Matt
28:18-19, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, . . "
So you see, Satan has been cast out of heaven to the earth, as found in Rev 12:9-11, "And
the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast
out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation,
and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which
accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their
testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." Likewise, in Luke 10:18-19 as quoted earlier,
and again here, "And
he said unto them, 'I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto
you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.'"
Matt 16:18 says that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.
Jesus even gave the disciples power to forgive or not forgive sin, as seen in John 20:23.
So, in summation, does God allow sickness? Hey, maybe He lets the devil go hog wild on this earth,
but He has given authority over the devil to the believers in the name of Jesus. God is all powerful. He has the power to
heal my body, but He has given me the authority to command it to be done through the name of Jesus. This is sound doctrine because it takes the blame off of God for
sickness, and puts it on man where it belongs. 'I say to the church, 'Arise, and take your dominion in the name
So why isn't everybody healed, some ask? I
believe that everybody can be healed because I know that God can't lie, and that He is true to His word. Unfortunately,
there are bad doctrines in the church that hinder healing, and that is why I'm writing this teaching. Also, I know that
if a person is gifted with healing and faith and if God's power works in him with enough strength, it can cut
through all the bad doctrine and doubt. When the anointing is not strong enough to firmly bring healing, then things
can hinder healing. Unfortunately, some preachers and people make up doctrines based on these experiences, rather than
getting their experiences to line up with the Word of God. Let us discuss some of these 'seemingly scriptural'
Another bad doctrine that I've heard recently is that God sometimes allows sickness
because he is true to His Word. In an attempt to get the Word to line up with their unbelief, they quote scriptues
such as Gal 6:7-8: '. . whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap, for he
that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption'. This
scripture is true, but so is the scripture that says in Is. 10:27 ". . the yoke shall be destroyed
because of the anointing." When the anointing is strong enough, yokes of rebellion and unforgiveness can be broken
instantly, at the same time they receive their healing. I prayed for a man to be healed at a gas station where I was
working as a painter. I asked the man if he had pain, and I prayed for his knee and shoulder. He felt the
Holy Spirit come on him when I prayed, and we talked as he repented. He had actually been on his way to do
great harm to another young man that had stolen his CD/tape player from his car. He had been full of bitterness
and unforgiveness and rebellion, but the anointing broke all those yokes.
This is another scripture that some use as an excuse as to why people are not healed:
Mark 11:26, 'but if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven
forgive your trespasses'. This scripture is a valid hinderance to
healing, but it won't stop healing if the anointing is strong enough. I believe that this scripture is superceded by
the scripture of the covenant promise, as stated in Is. 53:5 and 1 Pet 2:24, " . . by whose stripes we
were (are) healed.", I am NOT saying that there is no need to repent. We should repent of everything and anything
that is not godly. I believe we can receive healing and still split hell wide open. I'm merely saying that the
goodness of God leads people to repentence (Ro 2:4). Healing is an evangelistic tool.
Another scripture that is often twisted is found in Matt 13:58, which reads: "And He did not many works there because of their unbelief."
Unbelief is not the same as lack of faith. Unbelief is not believing that Jesus is the risen Christ.
Many use this scripture to say that people are not healed because of lack of faith. However, reading in context, we
find that the people in Jesus's hometown did not believe that He was the Christ. They merely saw Jesus as "the carpenter's son." They said, (Matt.13:55)"Is not his mother called Mary? and
his brethren James, Joses, Simon and Judas"? As far as the ones that are RECEIVING prayer,
lack of faith should not be used as an excuse in the church, because we in the church all should know that Jesus is the Christ
and that He rose from the dead. There is no reason why everyone in the church should not be healed.
The only time lack of faith can be a hinderance is when somebody does not believe in divine healing, and even worse,
they impose their unbelief on others by quoting many of the scriptures addressed herein with their twisted
views. In other words, people with a dis-respect for the Holy Ghost and the gifts of the Holy Ghost will be the same
ones that have the hardest time receiving their healing. We cannot find anywhere in the Bible where Jesus said, "I'm
sorry, you need to repent first before I can heal you." Nor did He turn anyone down for any reason. No, rather,
we find in Matt 8:16 that ". . He cast out spirits with His word, and healed all
that were sick." WWJD? What Would Jesus Do? What does He want us to do? Matt 10:7-8 "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom
of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers,
raise the dead , cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."
Sickness is often not a result of sin. Often the devil
just attacks, like a serpent, he strikes, and he does not need a reason. I hope this clarifies things for you. We could go
on with this, but hopefully the point is made. Far be it from me to accuse God. God is the answer, not the problem. Through
faith the promises of God are obtained (Heb 11:33) Let the faith of God rise up in those that are reading this, in the
name of the Christ, Jesus.
It is God’s will to heal: It
is in the Word. Actually, Jesus was the Word ‘made flesh’.
(John 1:14) Jesus went about healing all, "and His name is called the Word
19:13) The Word and Jesus are inseparable. "The Word was with God, and the
Word was God."(John
1:1) "For the Word of God is alive and powerful . ."(Heb
4:12) (some translations say ‘quick’ and powerful, but the correct meaning is ‘alive’.) Jesus healed
all and Jesus did " . nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do:
for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise."(John 5:19) Jesus healed everyone that asked. The Father and the Son
are practically inseparable. Jesus is the ‘express image’ of God the Father.
(Hebrews 1:3) God’s Word is His will. God’s will is His Word. Jesus, the living Word, said, "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father . ."(John 14:9) Jesus went about healing all. That is the will of the Father as well.
God’s will today is to heal. "Christ Jesus, the same yesterday, and
today, and forever."(Heb
These 3 scriputres: Matthew 8:2, Mark 1:40 and Luke 5:12 all
have the account of the leper that says to Jesus, ". . if thou wilt, thou
canst make me clean."
Significantly, by all three witnesses Jesus says to the leper in the following verse, "I
will; be thou clean."
Isaiah 53, in the heart of the Bible, reveals God’s will
for healing: "Surely
He hath borne our sicknesses, and carried our pains: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted."(Is. 53:4) The word ‘surely’ means positively,
absolutely, and certainly. If you have an English bible, the words ‘sicknesses’ and ‘pains’ are unfortunately
misinterpreted as ‘griefs’ and ‘sorrows’. In my Spanish bibles, the words are correctly written in
both of my versions (Antigua Version and the modern Spanish NIV version). I don’t know why these words are mistranslated
in the English. The English translator did a fine job on the rest of the Bible. Sometimes man’s theologies get in the
way. Let us get our faith to line up with the Word of God, and not to try to get the Word of God to line up with our theologies.
The Hebrew word Strong’s number 2483 is mistranslated as ‘griefs’ here in Isaiah
53, verses 3 and 4, but in the other 27 out of 29 places in the bible it is correctly translated as sickness (es) or disease.
The word for ‘sorrows’ , Strong’s #4341 means grief, pain, sorrow, and seems
to imply mostly mental pains, but includes physical as well. It is translated as sorrow most of the time but sometimes is
translated as ‘pain’. I would like to point out the Holy Ghost translation in Matthew 8:17 where this scripture
is quoted: "That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet,
saying, Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses." (my spanish
bible says 'sicknesses' and 'pains' here in 8:17 as well as in Is 53).
Back to Isaiah: "But
He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and
with His stripes we are healed."(Is 53:5) Although we esteemed Him smitten of God, it was "for the
transgression of my people was He stricken."(Is
53:8) And a little farther down yet in Isaiah, we see God’s will for our healing:
"Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see of the travail of His
soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous Servant justify many;
for He shall bear their iniquities."(Is 53:10-11) Herein lies some of the undisputable good news that
it is the Father’s will for our healing.
We are part of the body of Christ. Would Jesus want His body to be sick? NO! Jesus prayed
that we would be as one with Him even as He and the Father are one. (see John 17:11,21-22) Would not it be God’s desire
for health? This is just common sense. As a child of Abraham, you have a right to health, so how much more as a child of God?
(See the scriptures at the end.) However, God heals sinners just as well, as evidenced throughout scripture. In the book of
Acts we find that that after a miracle, thousands were then added to the church. The Lord desires to work the same way today;
He has not changed. We have seen people in sin healed right out on the street. God's heart reaches out to the lost and strayed.
The way we believe can be a hinderance. One Catholic man once said to me, "But Karl, I just don’t believe that way. My church teaches that miracles
and healings started passing away in the 3rd century." This man belonged
to a big Catholic church in Indiana.
Now I don’t mean to pick on Catholics, and I know that all Catholics don’t believe that healings
and miracles passed away. However, briefly, without writing a book, we know that the Catholics have adopted some traditions
and teachings that are unscriptural. However, "The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times." Psalms 12:6.
The way we believe is important. In the account of the Centurion and his servant, Jesus said, "Go thy way, and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto
thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour"(Matt 8:13) Likewise, in the account of the nobleman & his son Jesus said, "Go thy way,
thy son liveth." And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him and went his
Jesus often spoke a spoke a phrase like, " . . thy faith hath made thee whole.", such as He spoke to the woman that touched the hem,
(Matt 9:22, Mark 5:34 & Luke 8:48), or the blind man, (Mark 10:52 ), or the leper, (Luke 17;19), or another similar phrase
such as "According to your faith be it unto you."(the
two blind men in Matt 9:29), or "Thy faith hath saved thee."(the woman that anointed His feet in Luke 7:50 & the blind man in Luke 18:42) Please
notice, however, that we cannot find where Jesus said a word like this and the person was NOT healed.
This leads me to believe that if a person has enough faith to go and ask for a healing, they have enough faith to receive.
Did you ever notice?: The man that says he does not believe
in miracles seldom if ever walks in that resurrection power when praying for others. The Christian that does not believe in
the falling over and sleeping in the Spirit through the laying on of hands will rarely if ever have people fall over when
he prays and lays on hands. However, it does not take a whole bunch of faith to merely receive a healing. Generally,
if you believe that Jesus is the Chrst who died for you and rose again, that is gererally enough faith to receive your healing,
in that it is the resurrection power of our Lord that dwells in us by the Holy Spirit, and the same Spirit is doing the work.
A strong healing gift in the one doing the praying (the pray-er), will overide a litte doubt in the pray-ee.
What are the biggest hinderences to Healing? From my experience of praying for thousands,
I've found that unforgiveness or lack of faith are not the biggest hinderances when the anointing
is strong for healing. The main hinderance I've found is a lack of respect for the man of God. Scriptures
such as Mark 6:11 verify this: And whosoever shall not
receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily
I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
(Parallel scriputures are found in Matt 10:14, Luke 9:5 and Luke 10:10.) Also there are scriptures such as Luke
10:16. He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me;
and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me . (Other similar scriptures are: Matt 10:40, Mark 9:37, and John
13:20.) Basically, rejecting Jesus is the biggest sin anyone can commit. Consider
Matt 22:37-39 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Why is the 'second like unto' the first commandment? I believe it is because we are made
in the image of God. Whoever can obey one of these commandments will have an easier time learning the other one
A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT can keep you from receiving
your miracle. Let me give you a very common example: First, I ask someone if they have any aches or pains
in their body, or any physical problems. They say, "Yes, in my back," (or knees or wherever).
Then I say, "Well let's get rid of it in the name of the Christ, Jesus, and it will only take 30
seconds and I won't even have to touch you." Then they say something like, "No thanks,
I go to church, I have faith, I pray." Do you see what they just said? First of all, they admitted that
they had pain, so obviously their own church, faith and prayer did not heal them. . . and what they were really
telling me was that they did not think it was going to work, and that they believed that their own faith and prayers
were superior to mine. This is a religious, self-righteous, proud spirit. I may still be able to talk
them into receiving prayer, but I have to be careful and diplomatic how I do it, and their chances of actually receiving their
healing has gone down substantially. I may just say "OK, have a nice day," and walk away. In summation, without
writing a book, a lack of respect for either God, the Holy Spirit or God's anointed is the biggest hinderance to healing,
as evidenced thru scripture, from Cain, Miriam, Korah, the youngsters that taunted Elisha, etc, etc, all the way to the
new testament with Anninias & Saphira, Herod and Elymus the sorcerer, and many other less obvious examples.
What about Job? There was a well-meaning older brother in the Lord that once said to me, "But Karl, what about Job? God allowed him to suffer for a long time. God does not always heal
right away, after all, you know, God is sovereign."
The word 'sovereign' means ‘all powerful’. When you say, ‘God is sovereign’, that does not mean
that God does what He wants to do whenever He feels like doing it, but it means that God is all powerful. God is true to His
What about Job? Job had no mediator, or no way to mediate with God. We have what Job never had, the
living Son of God who "ever liveth to make intercession".(Hebrews
7:25) In Job's day, Satan was allowed to come before God, as it is written in the first two chapters of Job, and Satan accused
righteous Job before God's face. However, now, Satan has been cast down (Is 14:12 and Ez 28:16-17) as we find written in Revelation
12:10: "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ:
for the accuser of the brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."
to the seventy disciples in Luke 10:18-20, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold,
I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means shall
hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you, but rather rejoice, that your names
are written in heaven." So now, you see, instead
of Satan before God's face day and night accusing the brethren, we now have Jesus instead, who forever sits at the right hand
of the Father to make intercession for us. (Note: Notice that Satan is named 'the accuser
of the brethren'. If you speak evil of others, or put down a pastor or any saved person, you probably are guilty of playing
the devil's role, not God's. This can be a hindrance to the gift of healing working in you, and especially through you.
If you want God to flow through you to heal others, I suugest getting rid of wrong beliefs, wrong thinking, unforgiveness,
sin, hatred, the works of the flesh, etc. However, thank God for the blood of Jesus!!!)
I’ve heard many preachers preach on Job. There has been many a sermon preached that God restored double to Job. That
is good and dandy. I’ve also heard many preachers preach a faith message about how the thing that Job feared came upon
him, from Job 3:25. These are good messages, however, but the most important thing about the book of Job is that we have the
Christ Jesus as our mediator, whom Job never had. It is all about JESUS. Everything points to Him. When preachers preach on
Job and never once mention the fact that our mediator Jesus took our sins, pains and sicknesses on the cross, they unknowingly
interject a small amount of poison into the message, because it is the devil’s desire to obscure what Jesus did at Calvery.
As the anti-christ, the devil’s job is to take the focus off of the Christ Jesus, the living sacrificial Lamb of God.
It’s all about JESUS. There is only one little scripture (Job 3:25) about the fear factor of Job, and we hear
many long sermons on that. However, there are many scriptures where Job said that he had no way to mediate with God.
Job basically says, ‘Hey, where’s my mediator?’ The following scriptures verify this
fact: "Behold, He taketh away, who can hinder Him? Who
will say unto Him, What doest thou?
(9:12) How much less shall I answer Him, and
choose out my words to reason with Him? Whom though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication
to my judge.
(9:14-15) If I speak of strength, lo He is strong: and if of judgment,
who shall set me a time to plead?
(9:19) For He is not a man, as I am, that I
should answer Him, and we should come together in judgment. Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay His hand
upon us both.
(9:32-33) Hast Thou eyes of flesh? Or seest Thou as man seeth? Are
thy days as the days of man? Are thy years as man’s
days, . ?
(10:4-5) Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason
with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!
(16:21) Behold, I cry out of wrong,
but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
(19:7) Oh that my words
were written! Oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! For
I know that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy
this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
(19:23-26) Oh that I knew where I
might find Him! That I might come even to His seat! I would order my cause before Him, and fill my mouth with arguments. I
would know the words which He would answer me, and understand what He would say unto me. Will He plead against me with His
great power? No; but He would put strength in me. There the righteous might dispute with Him, so should I be delivered for
ever from my judge. Behold, I go forward, but He is not there, and backward, but I cannot perceive Him On the left hand, where
He doth work, but I cannot behold Him: He hideth Himself on the right hand, that I cannot see Him: But He knoweth the way
that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
I cry unto Thee, and Thou dost not hear me: I stand up, and Thou regardest me not.
Oh that One would hear me! Behold, my desire is that the Almighty would answer me, and that
mine adversary had written a book. Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, and bind it as a crown to me. I would declare
unto Him the number of my steps, as a prince would I go near unto Him."
Elihu confirms the mediator issue in Job33:23-28: "If
there be a messenger with Him, and Interpreter, One among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness: Then He is gracious
unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. His flesh shall be fresher that a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth: He shall pray unto
God, and He will be favourable unto him; and he shall see His face with joy: for He will render unto man his righteousness.
He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not, He will deliver
his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light."
God confirms the mediator issue as well in Job 42:7: "And
it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled
against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me right, as my servant Job hath."
God addressed the things that Job said that were not right, such as Job’s self-righteous attitude and multiplying
words without knowledge in chapters 38-41. Elihu also addressed the same issues as can easily be seen in the first and last
verse of chapter 35, (and elsewhere). This leads me to assume that all the other things that Job spoke about, such as the
mediator issue were correct. The words of Elihu must have been right also, because the Lord did not say anything about him,
but only that Eliphaz and his two friends, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamanthite had not spoken what was right.
We now have a Mediator. Our Mediator, Jesus, has now come, the veil to the Holy
of Holies was rent (Mat. 27:51, Mark 15:38, Luke 23:45), the veil being the flesh of Jesus (Heb 10:20), we can now
"boldly come to the
throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need" (Heb 4:16),
in that we now have a mediator who is "at the
right hand of the throne God"
(Heb 12:2), "who
also maketh intercession for us"(Ro 8:34), and "ever liveth to make intercession" (Heb 7:25).
Salvation includes healing. The basic word for ‘save’ is defined
by Strong’s concordance word number 4982 as ‘heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make)
It is hard to separate ‘sin’ and ‘sickness’. Sin and sickness were both atoned for on the cross. That is why we find it
written in Psalms 103:3 "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
(and) who healeth all thy diseases;"
Likewise, we find it written in James
any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name
of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he
have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." Likewise we find the account of the paralytic in Matthew 9 as well as
Mark 2, where Jesus said to the paralytic, "Son, thy sins be forgiven thee." And, just a few verses
farther down we find that Jesus, in showing the Pharisees that He had power on earth to forgive sins, said
"to the sick of the
palsy, Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house."
We find it written in John 3:14, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in
the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:" What happened when Moses lifted
up the bronze serpent in the wilderness. The book of Numbers chapter 21 tells us that the children of Israel were forgiven
for their sins of murmering and complaining and they were healed of
their snakebites, entering from a sentence of death into life. We also quoted earlier from Isaiah 53:4, how "He hath borne our ‘sicknesses’ and carried our ‘pains’:" (talking about sicknesses here) And, Isaiah 53:5 "but He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon him, (referring to sins) and with his stripes we are healed." (talking about sickness
again) This clearly shows that sickness and sins were both taken care of at
What about Paul and the Thorn?
I know a pastor that used to preach from the NIV bible. He used to think that my faith on healing was heretical.
Thanks to the Holy Spirit, he has come to believe and teach on healing. Before that, however, he attempted to prove to me
that it was not always God’s will to heal. He tried to convince
me by using some of the bad doctrines that I addressed earlier in this letter. He also mentioned 2nd Corinthians
12, verses 7 through 10 about Paul and the thorn. Concerning this scripture, he said to me, "You know Karl, sometimes God allows sickness to keep us humble." He then proceeded to read 2nd Cor 12:7
to me from his NIV bible, "To keep me from becoming
conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan,
to torment me."
Paul and the thorn: First, lets quote 2nd Cor 12:7 from the King James version: "And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations,
there was given me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan, to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure." There has been many a sermon preached, I’m
sure, that the thorn was a sickness allowed by God to keep Paul humble. Often they admit that they don’t really know
for sure what the thorn was, but yet they will go ahead and give their opinion from the pulpit. Let’s line our faith
up with God’s word, and not vice versa. Let us see what can be determined about this from the highest authority, God’s
What was the thorn? Paul often alluded to the old testament when teaching. In the old testament a thorn
in the flesh or barb in the eye was symbolic of the hindrance of the Caanites in the promised land if they were not completely
driven out. Walls of thorns and hedges of thorns were symbolic of a wall to keep the enemy out, or a wall the enemy would
have to keep you from getting in. However, digging a little deeper into the Greek in 2nd Cor 12:7, the ‘thorn’
is a wooden stake used for impaling, being withered at one end, (coming from the word 'skelops') and seems to hint to a little
bit of a deeper meaning concerning persecution, especially in that the Latin root word is 'cruz' which means 'cross'. Jesus
told Paul that he would show him the things he would suffer for His name’s sake. Jesus told the disciples that they
would be 'persecuted', and that in this world they would have 'tribulation', but I can’t find anywhere
that sickness is included in any of these word definitions (persecuted or tribulation). Furthermore, the Greek for ‘buffet’
(2nd Cor 12:7) means ‘repeated blows with the fists’, confirming that the thorn is persecution and
not sickness. This thing is clarified with Weymouth's translation: "Satan's angel, dealing blow
after blow." When taken in context, I would also add that there is a theme of persecution throughout the whole
book of 2nd Corinthians, starting out even in chapter 1 as Paul defends himself against things the false apostles
have said about him, explaining why he did not come earlier as planned. Reading between the lines, you see this theme continue
as Paul defends himself. In almost every chapter, this theme of persecution becomes more and more obvious, until he speaks
of it plainly in chapter 11, and continues on with the persecution theme after the ‘thorn’ in chapter 12. Now
you can see that in the middle of writing about persecution, he does not stop and mention a sickness; no, that would be way
out of context, in that sickness is not mentioned once in the whole book, however, there is an underlying
theme of persecution throughout the whole book, as Paul is on the defense concerning things the false
apostles have said about him. The bad doctrine is sometimes even taught that God allowed this so-called sickness to come on
him to keep him humble. However the scripture plainly says that the thorn in the flesh was
"the messenger of satan,
to buffet me, ." ,
(plainly stating it did not come from God). A lot of the confusion comes from the phrase ‘exalted
above measure’. The NIV wrongly interprets this as ‘becoming conceited’.
The NIV interpretation of this word is wrong for the following reasons: The Strong’s definition for this word 'exalted' is #5229, middle voice from #5228 and 142; ‘ to
raise oneself over, i.e. (figuratively) to become haughty.’ I suggest that the definition of 'to raise oneself
over is correct, but the figurative definition implying haughtiness has no support, in that this word only appears one other
time in the Bible, and that is in 2 Thess. 2:4, which speaks of the devil "Who opposeth and exalteth
himself over all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself
that he is God." This verse shows by the Bible's own authority
that the word does not mean ‘becomes conceited’, but rather the KJV of 'exalteth' is correct. This leads me to
believe that the messenger (angel) of satan came to Paul in an effort to keep Paul from reaching a higher realm of authority
in the spirit because of the great revelations Paul had.
Going on with the next verse, 2 Cor 12:8, "For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
Weymouth's translation says it like this: "As for this, three times I besought
the Lord to rid me of him." Rotherham's translation also uses
a pronoun, speaking of the angel of satan, clarifying that it is not a sickness. Let's continue
with veses 9-10. And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure
in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." In the Greek, the phrase "And He said unto me" implies sureness. Notice also that the Lord said, "My
grace is sufficient for thee". He did not say ‘insufficient’. The
word ‘grace’ means unmerited favor with God, to be able to accomplish what you could not ordinarily accomplish
on your own power. Basically, God is sort of saying, ‘Hey, I already gave you the power." Also, the word ‘infirmities’ is defined by Strong’s word #769 as ‘feebleness (of mind or body); by
implication, malady, morally, frailty’. The way the word is used in 2nd Corinthians means ‘the inability to produce
results’ as confirmed by the rest of the sentence, rather than a sickness. This meaning fits in with ‘reproaches,
necessities, persecutions, and distresses for Christ’s sake. This fits with both the ongoing persecution theme as well
as the theme in this sentence of ‘weakness’ (feebleness), in contrast to the strength of Christ. If you see this
differently, I challenge you to really study this out with an open mind. To "rightly divide the word of truth" means
‘to draw a straight line through’. 2 Tim 2:15 "Study to
shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Let us not draw a crooked line thru God's word. God heals, period. When you say, "Yes, God heals, but,
. . . .", be careful lest you draw a crooked line, in which case I would ask that you consider the severity of the beating
Jesus took for our healing. Would Jesus take that beating and then turn around and allow sickness. No!
Those stripes were taken for a reason. Let there be no double-mindedness in you concerning this, in the name
of the Christ, Jesus.
We could go on with this, but hopefully the point is made.
Sickness and oppression comes from the devil. Acts 10:38 sums it up:
"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."
This verse makes it clear: Jesus went about doing good & healing all. Sickness and oppression
comes from the devil.
Luke 9:56 "For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. "
John 10:10 "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (He added) The thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill,
and to destroy. "
1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh
about, seeking whom he may devour. "
Jesus Destroys Works of Devil
1 John 3:8 "For
this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil."
Sin and death entered by the first Adam when he sinned in the
garden. "Therefore, by the offence of one, judgement came upon all men to condemnation" (Ro 5:18) "Wherefore
as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, . . ". (Ro 5:12) I believe that with sin and death came sickness. "even so by the
righeousness of One (Jesus, the 2nd Adam) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life." (Ro
5:18) (and healing),
who rose from the tomb in the garden, (it is through the testimony of John that we learn the tomb was in the garden,
further proof of undoing Adam's sin which was also in the garden), "having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it",(Col
2:15) "making us "free from the law of sin and death." (Ro 8:2) (See Ro 8 and 1 Cor 15)

Jesus Healed All
Matt 4:23-24 "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching
the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And
His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto Him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases
and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and
he healed them."
Matt 8:16-17 "When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that
were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that were sick: That it might
be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses."
"And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and
preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people."
Matt 12:14-15 "Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against Him, how they
might destroy Him. But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew Himself from thence: and great multitudes followed Him, and
He healed them all;"
"And when the men of that place had knowledge of Him, they sent out into all that country
round about, and brought unto Him all that were diseased; And besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His
garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole."
"Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought
them unto Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them, and healed them."
"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."
Disciples Healed All (the 12)
Matt 10:1 "And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against
unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease:
(10:7) And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
(8) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received,
"Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all
devils, and to cure diseases. And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. (6) And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where."
the Seventy Sent Out to Heal also
"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and
place, whither He himself would come. (9) And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God
is come nigh unto you. (17) And the seventy returned
again with joy, saying, Lord even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name. (18) And He said unto them. I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. (19) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the
power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
Matt 7:11 "If ye
then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give
good things to them that ask him?"
Matt 18:19 "Again
I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them
of my Father which is in heaven."
Luke 11:9-10 "And
I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be ginven you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every
one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread
of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if
he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto you children:
how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
John 14:13-14 "And whatsoever ye shall ask
in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
John 15:7 "If ye
abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (16) Ye have not chosen
me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that
whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you."
John 16:23-24 "And
it that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will
give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: as, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full."
1 John 3:22 "And
whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight."
1 John 5:14-16 "And
this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: And if we know
that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him. If any man see his brogher
sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin
unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it."
All Things Possible / Believing is Important
Matt 21:21-22 "Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do
this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the
sea, it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, If thou
canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive
them, and ye shall have
Signs Follow Believers
Mark 16:15-20) "And He said unto them, Go ye
into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that
believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they
shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them; they
shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto
them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the
Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.
Promise of Abraham
Luke 13:11 "And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years,
and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman,
being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath
Redeemed from the Curse of the Law:
Gal 3:13-14 "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: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the
Gentiles through Jesus Christ. (Now, verse 29) And if ye be Christ’s
then are ye Abraham’s seed. (Now look at verse 7) Know ye therefore
that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham." (What is ‘Curse of the Law’? These are extreme cursings for
disobedience found in Duet 28: 15 through the rest of the chapter. These cursing include poverty, war, famine and EVERY
SICKNERSS and DISEASE (Verse 61) This is what Jesus redeemed us from! All glory and praise to Jesus!)
You Do Not have to Die with Sickness or Disease
Exodus 23:25-26 "And ye
shall serve the Lord your God, and He shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst
of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil."
(Deut 30:19) "I
call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore
choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live
