Healing Realities



A few years ago, a man that I led to Christ called me and was very distressed. He was a heavy smoker, and the doctors had found a dark spot on his lung. The doctors were very concerned. It was a Friday when the man called me. Immediately I went into prayer with him right on the phone with Debbie praying along with us from the background. I prayed the prayer of faith of James 5. The man received it by faith. He knew the potential because God had healed him before of other things through my prayers. He was healed of a limp the same night he received Christ, a limp he had had for about 15 years. The man informed me that he was going for a more detailed scan of his lungs on Monday. I told him to expect a good report. I forgot about the prayer, until he called me to tell me with great glee, "they did their test and they are confused, because the spot they saw last week is gone." I rejoiced with the man. 

God is truly good, even in spite of the man's heavy smoking, which he did not quit even then after that scare. But we must understand that the start of a Christian life does not mean the start of a sinless life. People can repent of some sins, but they must be healed by God of the roots and the wounding that could be causing their worst sins. And that healing can take time, and God is very patient. Now, back to this man. Smoking was not his worst problem, he was loaded with baggage as a baby Christian and was what I call a carnal Christian. Heaven was settled for him. But if all we get out of Christianity is Heaven, we have missed God's will by a mile. I share this because it reveals many truths to many people who will read it. It is ever so critical for people to keep growing in God and get the help they need to have a soul healing of their past, for their behaviors (sins) and their physical well being is tied to the condition of their souls (minds) and the salvation they have received does not change the soul quickly, but more slowly.

Getting Healed and Staying Healed!


GETTING HEALED AND STAYING HEALED:

Jesus died to buy healing for mankind. Should I rather say, healing potential, because there is faith involved in healing. "Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; (sicknesses).." Isaiah 53:4a I inserted the parenthesis because if you look up the Hebrew word for "sorrows," the original word is sicknesses. The Righteous Son of God carried our sins and our sicknesses. This means we have a right to walk free of both. The Cross brought forth a legal position for mankind, but legalities must be enforced. We enforce our rights under the Cross of Jesus. If we do not stand up and enforce what has been given to us as a free gift, our enemy and God's enemy, the devil will come in and run over us and steal our blessing and our rights in the Cross of Jesus. Jesus said in John 10 that, "the thief came to steal, kill and destroy." Then, He said, "I am come that you might have life, and life more abundantly."

So when sickness, which is of Satan, and not of God, comes, we must use the prayer of faith. That is not a shot gun prayer thrown at Heaven. It is a laser beam like prayer prayed by seasoned people who are tested in faith and cannot be tempted to doubt. God said call for the elders. Those are supposed to be seasoned people in God who know how to pray for the sick. "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. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up." James 5:14-15a

Many modern elders cannot pray the prayer of faith, because they never learned how. You must find one who does. But, even better, is to learn the prayer of faith from someone and then use it yourself, for this is God's highest desire for His children.

NOW, KEEPING THE HEALING:

Listen to this scripture: "Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” John 5:14 Jesus was healing under the Old Covenant. He lived on earth during the Old Covenant. The New Covenant began at the Cross when invisible hands tore the veil in the temple as Jesus died. Jesus at that moment re-united man with God for all time. On this side of the Cross, in this New Covenant, Jesus would probably not say, "Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you."

But a principle still applies. James says, "that which is not of faith is sin." God views any unbelief we speak or act on, or any fear, as sin. God makes us righteous by faith. Righteousness is reckoned unto us by our faith. (Romans 4) Without faith, we cannot please God. (Hebrews) If I may give a modern paraphrase to Jesus' comment to that man, I believe you will see the truth to stay well and keep a healing.

"So you have been healed. Here is a warning. When you get the word sown into your heart, Satan comes immediately to steal that word from your heart. (Mark 4) I say to you, stay believing, and if any symptoms return, go do what you did before, use the prayer of faith again, stand fast, do not doubt or speak unbelief or fear, only believe, and do not look at circumstances, or what you see with the sight of your eyes, but trust God, and forcefully enforce your rights from Calvary. Do it again and again until evil gives up, because you are way too persistent for him. If you do this, the thing will not come back to stay, and no worse thing will come upon you, for you fixed the real thing, which was not the sickness, but your own unbelief."

Q & A On Divine Healing from Greg Nichols




HEALING Q & A:

Q: Can everyone get healed? A: Yes, absolutely. 

Q: Does everyone get healed? A: Yes, either on this side of Heaven's veil, or on the other side!

(Explanation:  Jesus told most that He healed, "your faith has made you whole."  Just the same, believers often tend to not want to make it a quest to find out the truth they need to receive their healings, or they have blockages of unforgiveness or other emotional issues and baggage that make it difficult for them to move into the faith they need for healing.  When that takes place, God can bring them to Heaven for an ultimate restoration.  It is not God's best, as one more death from disease preaches and promotes satan's anti-gospel.  When one person suffers or loses a battle, we all suffer, and we all lose.  When a person gets their miracle and beats disease, the whole world gains.)


HEALING Q & A: 

Q: Greg, why are you so doggone interested in healing people with God's power?

A: You better ask Jesus that one. He is steering this ship, but I have a hint. While on earth, that is what He did with most of His time, as God and man, the Sovereign God of the Universe! He healed people with God's power, and pushed ahead in it, regardless of who thought what!!

More to follow!

Man Healed of Heart Arrhythmia Just through Phone Call He Was Not On!!





Testimony Shared by Greg Nichols : 

I don't share everything I see God do in healing, but sometimes I feel I should share an event because someone needs to hear it. I got to pray for a man on Monday by phone who was suffering from ongoing heart trouble and would have arrhythmia frequently, in his case the heart would beat super fast and cause great pain.... it was so bad that he was scheduled by doctors for a pacemaker in June. This man did not approach me, a friend of his did. The friend told him he was going to call me and the friend and I prayed together on the phone and we passionately and earnestly prayed the prayer of faith. When done, I told him to go to his ailing friend and tell him we prayed. When he did, the friend wanted to know the time we prayed. The reason for that was because he was having an attack while we prayed, but something came over him during the attack and stopped it short, and great peace came over him, but no issues, no arrhythmia. That got his attention.

A few days later, the friend called me. Still no attacks. Praise God. Sometimes I feel that healing flows best when no one gets in the way, including me. I believe God is wanting to bring much more manifestation of healing than we are getting. I believe He is looking for vessels or channels of available people who will let Him use them without having an opinion, or a preconceived notion, or an expectancy that is incorrect..... phone praying works well because your five senses can't get much involved to shut down your faith, for faith is only spiritual, it is not emotional or sensual or sight oriented. I don't understand much, but the understanding I am getting is motivating... that an explosion of healing is awaiting us.... that the ceiling above is not there, that Heaven is open, that God is patiently waiting for us to get it, and get it well! Holy Spirit, show me what else I need to see..... to break it all loose.... in Jesus name!!

Scripture Knowledge Important to Receive the Promises!




 I am absolutely amazed at how many believers do not know much scripture. Do you see this too? I often talk to Christian people and share something with them and see their shock that the passage or concept is in the Bible. It seems that many are in love with the idea of having the scripture more than in love with scripture. I do not understand how a person believes they can have any victory in their Christian walk apart from knowing God's Word. Then, people say they love Jesus, but Jesus and the Bible, God's Word, are quite indivisible. To love Jesus is to love the Word. When Jesus was tempted by satan, He fell back on the Word, saying, "It is written..." If the Son of God needed a detailed and full knowledge of scripture to overcome satan, how can we settle for light scripture knowledge and hope to win over evil? When the Sadducees came to Jesus to try to stump Him about marriage in Heaven, He replied, "Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?" Mark 12:24 To me, this says to be bankrupt of scripture is to be bankrupt of the power of God. 

Even Divine healing is done by the Word of God, instead of God Himself. "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." Psalm 107:20 That is God's way. The Holy Spirit has been instructed to perform the Word for us. That is, the Word that we know, and use, and speak out in faith. "Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it." Jeremiah 1:12 Our knowledge of scripture is everything to our walks, and exactly what we need to activate God's grace in our lives. Ministers in the modern Church hold back from sharing the pure Word of God, because it tastes bitter at first to a carnal mind, for it is as unleavened bread, and an acquired taste. Ministers hold seeker friendly goals above their desire to preach the pure Word, which will set people free. What do you think about the Word, and today's practices from pulpits all over America? Comment for me below if you want. I will close here with a scriptural flow where God unequivocally tells us and shows us how to access His promises and grace and miracles and breakthrough. (Words in parentheses are mine for emphasis - each place you see one, God is speaking of scripture and your knowledge of it)

"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge (Word) of God, and of Jesus our Lord, (Word) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things (Word) that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge (Word) of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: (Word) that by these (Word) ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." 2 Peter 1:2-4 


Bless Jesus and His Word forever!

The Ministry of A.A. Allen in California - Signs and Wonders!


From Greg Nichols:    I wanted to give space on my blog here to this great man of God, A.A. Allen, who traveled around ministering and healing in the 1950's.   Enjoy this account of his adventures in God, and read the testimonies, all glory to Jesus.      Greg Nichols

Excerpts from the book.... THE PRICE OF GOD’S MIRACLE WORKING POWER... by A.A. Allen
pg 16-19

At this writing, I am conducting a "BACK TO GOD HEALING REVIVAL" at Calvary Temple in Oakland, California. Many say it is the greatest REVIVAL in the history of Oakland. Hundreds say that they have never witnessed such a dynamic moving of the power of God. The meeting is now in its fifth great week. From the growing interest and increasing attendance the meeting could, no doubt, continue indefinitely.

Night after night, the waves of Divine Glory so sweep over the congregation that many testify of being healed while sitting in their seats. Again and again as we have felt the mighty power of God settling over the meeting, people have risen to their feet to testify of instant healings, some of which are visibly miraculous, such as outward tumors disappearing, the crippled made whole.

I have felt goiters disappear at the touch of my hand in Jesus' name!
The shouts of victory are many as the blind see. One woman testified, "It was like coming out of the dark into the sunlight."

We prayed for a woman with throat trouble. After a few moments, she was seen hurrying to the ladies rest room. After returning to the auditorium, she testified that after prayer, something came loose out of her throat and came up into her mouth. she had hurried to the rest room to dispose of it. It was some kind of foreign growth (doubtless cancer) -- whitish orange in color.

Ruptures as large as a person's fist have disappeared overnight. Cancer, deafness, tumors, goiters, sugar diabetes, every known disease and many unknown, disappear, as in the name of Jesus, we lay hands upon the sick. Genuine healings are proven in many cases by doctors' statements and x-rays.

We stand in holy awe, and marvel at the miracle working power of God, as it has moved night after night from the very beginning of this meeting. Hundreds have been delivered from the power of the enemy -- saved, healed, or filled with the Spirit.

In this meeting, it has been impossible to have what is generally termed a "healing line". At least ninety percent of those upon whom we have laid hands are prostrated under the mighty power of God immediately. Some dance a few steps, or weave drunkenly under the power of the Spirit before falling. (See Jer. 23:9). Under these circumstances, it is impossible to have people march on after prayer. This is the mighty power of God moving upon the people. It is the same power that caused John to "fall at his feet as dead". (Rev. 1:17.)

Many say that the most outstanding thing about this meeting is that such a large percentage of the sick are receiving such miraculous deliverance. It would be a conservative estimate to say that at least ninety percent, or even more of those prayed for have been marvelously healed.

Tonight's service was designated "Holy Ghost Night." Calvary Temple was packed to the doors, with people sitting on the altar benches.

(This is being written at 2:00 am after a great Holy Ghost service.) Eternity alone will reveal the number of people who were filled or refilled with the Spirit. We had announced that in this service, hands would be laid upon seekers for the infilling of the Spirit, according to Acts 8:17. After the sermon, all who had not already been filled during the service came down the outside aisle in a line. With only a few exceptions, everyone we touched in the name of Jesus fell prostrate. What an unusual sight to stand on the platform afterwards, and look upon the many "slain of the Lord" in every available altar space, and even down the aisles! Sweeter yet, the sound of the heavenly music of voices raised in united praise to God, as the Spirit filled obedient believers, and they began to speak in new tongues and magnify God. (Mark 16:17; Acts 10:46)

The Word is Who Heals Us! (by Greg Nichols)



(You can subscribe to this blog for the next post and it has options.  One is to get a label or button on your browser that indicates a new entry. Just go to the bottom of this blog and find the word, "subscribe.") 

I have a co-worker who was sick every week and missing too much work to be able to even keep the job. He kept getting the flu, viral symptoms, cold, chest congestion, sinus, aches, stay in bed kind of stuff....I laid hands on him one day and he felt better. But he would relapse back into it. One day he asked for prayer, and I told him, "I don't heal anyone. It comes from God. But to be honest, God does not heal either. It is rather His Word that heals us." I had this man's attention. He was desperate. He never heard this before. Most Christians have never heard, "God does not heal, His Word does." But listen to this scripture: "He sent His Word and healed them of all their destructions." Psalm 107. That verse reveals a way of God. I suppose I will make some religious people mad here, to say God does not heal. But God in Creation never left Himself to have to repeat an act over and over, like creating another human after Adam or Eve. He used reproduction through seeds. Mark 4 says the Word of the Kingdom is as if a man should cast seed into the ground, and how it comes up, he knows not how. I saw my co-worker have a light bulb of revelation go off. He was getting this. 

There is power in every Bible passage about healing from God. "..by His stripes you were healed...." drips with life giving anointing and Holy Spirit power. When we speak and mutter and declare, these Words from God, we are releasing God's power out of that Word. I was going to write some scriptures down for my friend, but instead, I text-ed him some. He gets up every morning and prays over them, with cell phone next to him, and prays them over himself. He has not been sick again since this light bulb went off. That was 5-6 weeks ago. This man has fullness of joy, I saw him dance, literally one night like a man on fire and set free. I got to teach this man to fish...as the saying goes. You see, with reverence to God, let me say that the Word is a legal document ratified by the Cross of Jesus Christ. So we are healed through Christ. The Apostle Paul always said everything we do is "through or in Christ." That is very true. But God expects us to use His Word like I described here, and this is His way, and we cannot or must not circumvent His ways. Maybe you just got the same light bulb. If you did, go after the Word now and until Jesus returns, and watch how much health you stay in too! Bless Jesus forever!
