THE NUMBER ONE REASON PEOPLE DON'T GET HEALED IS?
This is a revelation from God. He had been showing me these parts of the puzzle for some time; but now he put them together just a few days ago and gave me the green light to teach it.
Have you ever wondered why people who are very sick either die or don’t get healed? Has it just added more confusion when they had dozens; hundreds; or even thousands praying for them and still no breakthrough?
So what is the number one reason that people don’t get healed. Here it is! Are you ready? If you haven’t been prepared to receive Divine Healing God cannot bypass your unbelief and because you don’t understand how your healing works. In simple terms; you are the key to your healing.
If you aren’t prepared properly; you’re not getting healed. Usually, you need someone to help you that is what I am trying to do. You also must do your homework so you can pass the test. Get yourself ready. Mediate on the Promises. Listen to Divine Healing Teaching.
When I hear people pray for people in church and it goes something like this I cringe. Let’s say it is a cousin who lives in another state and a family member has asked you to have prayer for your cousin in your home church. So you ask the Pastor or an Elder or a Deacon; whoever does prayer requests in front of the church. The same would apply to a Prayer Chain or Facebook page. Pulpit Prayers and Prayer Chains and Facebook Pages can work for some things very well. If the person is having an operation or needs a job; most people can believe for that. The reason is they have done it for themselves.
But Divine Healing is different. If you can’t get yourself healed then how can you believe for someone else (it’s above your prayer grade). That’s one issue-a very huge issue that renders prayer null and void because you’ve got multiplied numbers of people who are full of unbelief (because they haven’t’ qualified themselves in Divine Healing. You don’t get to pool only your faith together; no your unbelief is pooled right alongside of it.
So back to the issue at hand. When these people are being prayed for this is always my thought have then even been prepared to receive Divine Healing. Someone who has qualified themselves (understands how Divine Healing works and has had success in it) needs to go to that person in the hospital or home and prepare him or her. How often does that ever happen? Almost never, I would guess.
There was a man name John G. Lake who is highly respected in the area of Divine Healing He lived from 1870 to 1935. He had over a 100,000 documented cases of Divine Healing.
One hospital closed down in Spokane, Washington and it was named the healthiest city in the US. He would teach people the Principles of DH and then he would assign one of them to a sick person and say don’t come back until there are healed. I think he gave them a maximum of 90 days (not 100 per cent sure on that timeframe) The person would read Healing Scriptures; Teach them and encourage them and then prayer and believe for healing. I believe most were healed very quickly in a few day.
I am not saying we have to use these exact model; but something closer to this.
Other people can combine their faith with yours; but that is only if they are walking in faith w/o unbelief themselves. The simple rule is this is that support person can’t get themselves healed you don’t want them praying for you. One or two or three people walking in faith is much better than hundreds who haven’t qualified (studied to show themselves approved and had success praying for themselves or others to be healed
· Jesus did what 12 men should have been but couldn’t do themselves.
· Proxy=If the person you are praying for is a very young child or is incapacitated and unable to pray themselves. Example would be the Man with the son who had epileptic-type seizures in this case caused by demons.
· Dictionary Definition of Proxy” Someone who has the authority to represent someone else
· Before a Doctor is able to operate on a patient; he sits down and explains to the he or she how this procedure works. He reassures them that everything will be fine.
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
*****KJV gets it right=Unbelief versus little faith (confuses people)Only need the faith of a mustard seed (this little faith must be the equivalent then of faith with greater unbelief which reduces it to little faith which renders it useless)
1. You must have knowledge
II Peter 2:24 (ESV)
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
· Again this is how the procedure works
· If you are just throwing a prayer out there and hope something happens then I would say100 percent of that time that will not work-it’s not faith-I’m not even sure that’s hope.
· I do believe that is what the overwhelming majority of Christians are doing. They think well I can just pray and God will do it
· God knows my heart-that could be the problem right there.
· Remember, you don’t get healed by begging, because your need is so great, or because you have been a good and faithful Christian. This are promises which are laws. If you jump off a building you will fall to the ground. That is the law of gravity. The law of gravity doesn’t care who you are. If you do have the knowledge and understanding a mustard seed of faith that laws says you will be healed and if you don’t you won’t
2. These are Laws (God is no respecter of persons)
Woman with the Issue of Blood
Mark 5:25-34 (ESV)
25 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years,
26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse.
27 She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment.
28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.”
29 And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.
30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?”
31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
32 And he looked around to see who had done it.
33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.
34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
You know what this woman had going for her?
· NOTHING IN THE NATURAL-
(She was broke/unclean/sick)
· IN THE SPIRITUAL WHAT DID SHE HAVE GOING FOR HER
I call it the Spirit of Popeye (she was tenacious-she said that’s all I can stands and I can’t stands no more)
(She had a determined faith that wasn’t going to take no for an answer
If I can just touch him) (Act of faith)
3. You must believe You must participate in your healing. You are the key.
Mark 9:22-24 (ESV)
22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”
23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’(believe)! All things are possible for one who believes.”
24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Here is a breakdown of the exchanges
1. Bigger group (Disciples) couldn’t get the job done
2. He is starting to cave in (wavering) Jesus if you can you just do it for me (heal my son)
3. Jesus counters that-if you can believe (on the man-this case is a proxy for his son)
Why did Jesus do that-Because you play a role in your healing-You must believe with a simple child-like faith; which is completely doable. I can’t stress this enough it is so important that the person being prayed for is prepared
4. Get the doubt out. You must work on your unbelief
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
(not just one-time thing but hearing and hearing and hearing- many times=ongoing)
Psalm 119:11 (ESV)
11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
(Remember Sin means “to miss the mark”)
(So it’s not just committing adultery but unbelief is sin; because you are not trusting God)
· Mediate on the Promises
· Shows both can faith and unbelief can exist together
· Jesus helps him and guess what his son gets healed
Let me close with a couple of stories
One of the greatest testimonies to what I am saying is the story of Mike and Aster Mullins and their son Andrew.
The Mullins are from Ireland. Their fourth son began to display some health issues when he was just over a year old. He was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. They set up a Facebook page to storm the gates of Hell for Andrew. Eventually, 5000 people were praying. 5000 people is bigger than many towns. The only problem was even with these praying was that Andrew grew worse and worse.
They had received some teaching on God wants you well from Andrew Wommack. This is the same teaching and my mentor I had received and teach today. They had a revelation:
Here is an excerpt from their story:
“We don’t have to storm Heaven’s gates, God is not the oppressor, nor was He using Andrew’s sickness to teach us a lesson,” God used Andrew’s teaching to point the Mullins back to His Word where they found promises to stand on for their son’s healing.
“We found promises in the Word of God, such as in the book of Proverbs (15:30) where it says good news brings health to your bones.” said Mike.
Then their eyes were opened to the Truth, they went to their son, and laid their hands on him with confident expectation. “We put our hands on his thigh bones and his pelvis and we said, ‘Bones, we’ve got good news for you, "By His stripes you were healed" (1 Peter 2:24).
After their prayer, Andrew was tested to see if he had made any progress. To the hospital staff’s surprise, he had. The Mullins’ consultant called and she said, “I don’t know how to tell you this, but everything regarding Andrew is up in the air.” To which Mike inquired, “Is it up in the air good or up in the air bad? She said, “It’s up in the air good. Every one of Andrew’s bones are completely clean of cancer… We really didn’t expect this.”
While the news was unexpected by the doctors, it wasn’t a surprise to the Mullins. “We had learned how to pray with authority, and it worked,” said Mike.”
When one of our boys was four years old; he flunked his pre-school hearing exam. Chad had partial deafness; he could hear but not well. He would need some type of hearing aids or something. This really got to me. I got this picture in my mind of this sweet young child, which he was, wearing these gigantic hearing aids. Anyway, I just got really steamed at the situation. I said, “enough is enough.”
I laid my hands-on Chad’s head and prayed and believed God to divinely heal his hearing. Now, if you know my testimony, you know that I was Mr. OCD to the max. So, when Chad, came out of the bathroom and said “Daddy when I flushed the toilet it sounded like a jet airplane taking off” it didn’t register with me at first. I thought wow that’s weird; then a few moments later; I realized what had happened with my lightening quick mind; that God had healed him.
He was rechecked, and his hearing was in the normal range. Of course, I thought I could duplicate that again and wasn’t able to until years later when God would show me why Chad was healed and how Divine Healing works.
THIS EXPLAINS WHY PEOPLE GET HEALED AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT HAPPENED.
That is what happened in my case with Chad. I had child-like faith and of course Chad did, and I happen to hit the law of healing and bam it worked!
Remember what John the Baptist’s ministry was: Prepare ye the way. (He was the person who got things ready for Jesus to come and minister) I believe we need some people to prepare ye the way for Divine Healing.
People who will study and meditate on the Divine Healing Promises; people who will believe God to heal for themselves and then for others. Then Then when someone is sick this person or persons can go be dispatched to the hospital or home or pray for them at church and they will be healed.
James 5:14-15 (ESV)
14 Is anyone among you sick? 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.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.
Jesus said to heal the sick not to just pray for them and hope something happens!
He gave us his authority to do just that!
