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.2Therefore said he unto them, The harvest
truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.3Go
your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.5And
into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.6And
if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall
turn to you again.7And in the same house remain, eating and
drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go
not from house to house.
8And into whatsoever
city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before
you:9And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of
God is come nigh unto you.10But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they
receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,11Even the very dust of your city, if cleaveth on us, we do wipe off
against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is
come nigh unto you.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even
the devils are subject unto us through thy name.18And
he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.19Behold, 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.
this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice,
because your names are written in heaven.
- It is strange how we have come to think that the “healing
ministry” is some sort of side line of the calling of the preachers.
Have we come to think of healing through non-medical means
How some have even insisted that God no longer moves in this
way because some scriptural interpretation indicates that this is all been
replaced as soon as the content of the Bible, as the written word of God,
would have thought
That such a momentous change ought to be more clearly
documented and taught within the Scriptures. Personally I can find no such
teaching or instruction for me to abandon the revelation that Jesus Christ is
the same yesterday today and forever!
I urge you to look carefully at these so-called references
and teachings. Personally I believe that this concept is a good example of a
fable that Paul, the apostle, warns us about.
I such a person?
I need to establish the definite link between wholeness in
every part with worship.
I must accept the word preached by those long ago disciples
from a bygone age and, indeed, the word that is still preached today in this
present millennium. After all the testimony of the written word of God in the
King James Bible is our ultimate authority.
I want to find out for myself
that healing in body and soul is more than possible.
I want to find myself well on the way to finding myself
I want to discover that the Lord is the forgiver of my sins
and the healer of my body.
wonderful to read these accounts
Isn’t it wonderful to read of these disciples as they first
set out with these instructions? –
A little hesitant perhaps but oh so strong as they find it
actually works! God honours his word when mixed with faith and obedience.
People get healed in body.
Illness and disease no longer rule.
return with this glowing report.
It is more than possible! –
What is the message that these disciples are telling me? –
They are telling me that in the Lord’s Name it is more than
possible that I will be healed in my body.
Think About This
seriously have I thought about this?
Have I really let an idea that is not that clearly expressed
in scripture to influence me to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ no longer is
prepared or able to heal my body of sickness and disease?
I want to be like the disciples of John the Baptist who ask
whether Jesus was the Messiah except in my case I ask him if it is true that
the age and dispensation of the healing of the sick and the miracles of healing
are actually now passed into a far distant dispensation beyond my reach and
denied my faith to reach out for.
When the men were come
unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he
that should come? or look we for another?21And in that same hour he cured
many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that
were blind he gave sight.22Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your
way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see,
the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to
the poor the gospel is preached.
Look & See
WHAT HAPPENED; SEE WHAT HAPPENS
How that the blind see,
the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the
poor the gospel is preached!
Lord let your word tell me over & over that “Many people
are healed of their sickness, diseases, evil spirits & have their sight
Let your spirit lead me to hear these sort of living
testimonies again & again until faith glows in me & my mind is renewed
to take hold of your promises of healing in my body
Lord give me boldness to prayer with resounding effect for
people who come to me for prayer for sickness
Lord prove my eldership by having people healed when I
anoint them with oil in your name
Lord I want health & holiness to be associated with my
