Born again Christians in Africa believe in the power of God to heal. We depend on His power to heal so that our children do not die of HIV/AIDS or Malaria or tumors. Without this power, we would be defenseless. We would be what we are without our beautiful Healer, victims. THankfully Jesus came to destroy the works of the Devil. He came to give us LIFE (healing, salvation, deliverance, complete and total wholeness and peace, nothing missing, nothing broken, prospering and full in every area of ...life) and LIFE abundantly and the Devil comes only to steal, kill, or destroy. Mttw 10:10 We believe that God wants to heal us 100% of the time. Sickness is not FROM God anymore than sin is. Sickness is a result of sin which led to a fallen world. Some people try to make a theology that God wants to teach you something through sickness so He gave you cancer to give you compassion for the sick. Sorry but this is NOT biblical.
Everything done to JOB was done by SATAN. Yes God allowed it but that was even before the CROSS!
We know that everything that happens in this world is allowed by God but not all things are FROM God. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
GOD IS GOOD. THE DEVIL IS BAD. :) Keep it simple.
YES GOD CAN AND DOES USE SICKNESS. He can use anything for our GOOD. No matter what hand he is dealt, He always triumphs in victory. Incredible. Romans 8:28
BUT WE NEED God's healing power. There is a lion on the prowl seeking to destroy and kill. Without the power of God we are defenseless. The kingdom of darkness has power. BUT...we have a greater power. if we are willing to pay the price to access it. To cry out for it. To see healing and deliverance come through our hands and feet. To love people into life. The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!
Read the scriptures on healing. Jesus BOUGHT it already past tense on the cross. The power is there. Available to us.
If you are battling sickness in your own body or in the body of someone in your family, I encourage you to PRESS IN. Write out the scriptures of healing on notecards. Declare them over yourself or your loved one every day. Repent of sin and forgive those who have hurt you. If you have generational sin in your family, repent of it and break generational curses over yourself or your loved one. Then command the sickness to leave. You have the authority. Call on the elders and the body of Christ to anoint you with oil, lay hands on you or your loved one for healing. Don't stop praying and contending. When you have done all...stand...on the truth and trust in God who is...God.
Sometimes ...electricity is on but the lightbulb is not working. There is nothing wrong with the power source ...God. But somewhere there is a short in the circuit that causes the lightbulb to shine. God is not at fault. The power is there. Keep pressing in.
Let us access the breakthrough in the secret place so that when we are faced with sickness and disease we are filled with the glory and anointing of God that overflows and overcomes.
At Royal Hope Academy, we have seen children healed of HIV/AIDS verified by testing, I have witnessed a woman deaf and dumb for 20 years speak her first words of papa and mama, tumors disappearing overnight, and all sorts of healings through the power of Christ in us. We also see many who do not get healed and we continually cry out for His power to fall on us. Let us not rely on earthly wisdom of medicine (though it is needed and certainly we use it) but let us CRY OUT and contend for the anointing of God that is available to every one of His children. THERE IS ALWAYS MORE for us. We are called to love; His job is to heal.
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Mttw 10:8
Are these the actual words of JESUS??? Did He actually command us to do these supernatural things? YES! Are you? If not, are you going for it? Read, learn, pray, seek. Jeremiah 29:13
You will not see the sick healed unless you lay hands on them.
Jesus didn't even say PRAY for the sick. He said, heal the sick.
