Eternal Lord we give you praise and Glory for raising us as envoys of your grace and power.
We thank you for the compelling in the mind of your children to go out for souls and to heal the sick.
We receive your grace and power tonight as we examine another dimension of the HEALING ANOINTING
James 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
I will tell you the story of a man
It will make God happy if we don’t just hear these words but we also do it and take steps
There was a story of a king who wanted to marry off his princess to a brave man.
The King organized a contest for all the suitors.
On the D-day, he announced that they were to swim in his Olympic-sized swimming pool
The first to make it to the other end would marry the princess and would be given wealth.
But before they began to swim, they saw a crocodile lifting up its head
The young men were excited
Before they could blink, they saw the second and the third crocodile.
They all ran back but there was a man in the pool already.
They watched him swam past the first crocodile in amazement and then the second, then the third.
He came out breathing heavily!
The king was happy and the princess was equally excited that she found a brave man.
The king congratulated him and asked him to take the princess.
The man said he didn’t want the princess.
Everyone was surprised.
The king told him to take the wealth which he also rejected.
By then, the king was angry and demanded for what he wanted.
He said Show me “WHO PUSHED ME”, I want to know the person who pushed me into the pool.
So, if you didn’t get anyone to push you, push yourself
In 2016, the LORD spoke to me that we should start SCHOOL OF HEALING
I The first time the Lord spoke to me that we should start what we call Healing School.
I smiled and told God that how many anointing do I have that I will start a healing school.
That time we call it healing school but today, it is called School of Healing.
After arguing with God and throwing the instruction away.
I went for a ministration. After my session, the Lord asked me to tell people to come and share the testimonies of what God did when I was with them the previous year.
I didn’t know how to say that directly so, I told my host to announce but when he did, nobody responded.
So, I went back to the pulpit and told them that it was a divine instruction.
As soon as I said that, hands were up.
The first lady that testified confessed that God changed her genotype from SS.
She added that she had not even had malaria for the past 365 days.
I was shocked. It was that moment I remembered seeing her face the previous year.
She was crying her heart out when I prayed for the two of them who were SS but that day she looked so healthy and clearly different from whom I saw the previous year.
Her eyeballs in particular had changed. She said she had a hospital result to confirm it.
She said the second lady didn’t come to the convention but she was pretty sure that she has also been healed only that she can’t say if she also went to an hospital for a test or not.
We had several wonderful testimonies that night.
I felt ashamed of myself. I repented and told God that we would start healing school that very day.
I never knew I had such anointing.
You really don’t know how much God had deposited in you until you have stepped out.
STEPS TO HEAL THE SICK USING PETER AS A CASE STUDY
Be bold and courageous
Acts 3; 4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
The man was not begging to be healed, it was Peter that brought it up
Jesus was no longer with Peter and this was his first outing
He relied on the word Jesus said to them!
It was the same word He said to YOU, yes, YOU
Mark 16:18 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
Step 2: HE MADE THE MAN BELIEVE IN HIM
You can’t heal a man that doesn’t believe God can use you
It was the same with Jesus
Jesus couldn’t perform much healing in His hometown because they don’t believe in Him
Mar 6:5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
Telling the man to LOOK ON THEM arose the interest and expectation of that man.
Step C: Peter healed him using the name of Jesus
There’s a scriptural way to pray for the sick
It is not by saying GOD PLS HEAL HIM
Or GOD PLS HAVE MERCY ON YOUR CHILD
He called the man’s healing forth. Look at it-
Acts3: 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Step D: Peter ensured that the man took a step of faith
This is the most important area of your HEALING OF THE SICK
Ensure they take a step!
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
Something they cannot do befoee
Even if they cannot do it in full, they should attempt it
It is at that moment that the healing anointing would flow
The leg of the lame man had no changes at all until Peter pulled him up!
When Namaan approached Elisha, he asked him to go and wash 7 times
There was no changes each time but mind you, it take a leper to wash his body properly
So the man kept taking steps of healing until the 7th time!
As you go out from today, INSTANT HEALING SHALL FOLLOW IN JESUS NAME
Dealing with doubts
There is pre-prayer doubt and post-prayer doubt
The pre-prayer is “what if he is not healed”
I have told us about that
Just tell the devil that you are not sharing the glory of God so the shame is none of your concern
The post prayer is the fear that after your prayers , the person might get healed
This happens in cases where the man needed a further check
For instance, the student with asthma that I prayed for couldn’t confirm immediately, she needed some time
But doubt was bombarding my mind
I knew it would come and so, I was ready for it
I battled it with CDA
Once devil whispers- what if she’s not healed?
I have asked for the girls surname. I would just say, THANK YOU LORD, KEMI JAMES (for instance) is healed if asthma in Jesus Name
I would say it to my mind and a bit aloud all the time the negative thought came
That was it. She was heal we d
There’s one more step for Peter
Step E: Returning all the Glory to God
Remember that Peter once called the attention to himself as the healer
But when he began to pray, he demonstrated that Jesus owns the power and he was only to operate under authority and so he said: “in Jesus Name”.
The moment the miracle was concluded and people started praising Peter, he quickly diverted their attention away from himself
12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
Did you see that?
Put all these steps in use and you will record your first healing!
And many more will follow
GRACE IS RELEASED UPON YOU RIGHT NOW IN JESUS NAME
Blessed night everyone
