Last week a woman with eleven cancerous tumors went back to the doctor after prayer to find out that all the tumors had disappeared. There was not one cancer in her body. This is one of many miracles along with others who our church personally have prayed over whether or not if they came to the church. I wish I could have written down every miracle I have seen in a life time, every prayer answered when it comes to healing. We sometimes wonder why some receive miracles and some don’t as if God chooses who He wants to live or come to be with Him. To make note is Jesus still performs miracles on those who believe and practice the operation of the gifts of the Spirit.
Signs and wonders follow a believer and I don’t want to ever stop believing. We don’t have to see to believe but when we see our faith is increased and lives are touched. Jesus came to give life and life more abundant. He came to save us, to give us life. He came and healed all. It is not his wish or desire for any to be sick, nor is it the Father’s will. When Jesus prayed, Our Father which is in heaven, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…. there is no sickness in heaven therefore sickness can be done away with here on earth. Sickness is a by-product of sin and we all are born into sin in which doesn’t always escape us since we live in a world of sin. However we can have faith to believe in the miracle-working power of Jesus. For by His stripes, we ARE healed. Jesus paid for our healing and we don’t have to accept being sick while living on earth. However, we do see people like my dad who believes in the miracle-working power of Jesus but continues to be sick in this world. Just because he has not received his healing doesn’t mean he has stopped believing, stop fighting for life or that Jesus wants him to be sick.
Matthew 21:13-14 And He said to them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
His works testified of him more than the hosannas; and his healing in the temple was the fulfilling the promise, that the glory of the latter house should be greater than the glory of the former. If Christ came now into many parts of his visible church, how many people would he see working in his gifts in which he left the church, his body? Christ came to show love and He wants us to do likewise. After cleaning out the money changers, ignored the soothsayers, people came for healing. Signs, wonders and miracles were a product after everything was set. Many people in the day would have rejected Jesus for his outburst in turning over the money changers. He made a scene, he made people angry, yet, He did what the Father had told him to do. He was a world changer and he broke tradition. Not everyone believed in whom he said he was. Not everyone agreed with his actions, tactics or ways he did things. This is all irrelevant to the blind man who saw, or to the leper who was cleansed, or to the lame who could leap, the deaf who could hear, the possessed who was set free, the hungry who was fed, the dead who was alive and the list goes on. When people were touched by Jesus, they experienced the signs wonders and miracles. They believed in Jesus. We too, left with His Spirit as a believer will continue to see manifestations of the gifts, regardless of those who say it was only in the days of Jesus or who don’t practice it and allow it to happen. I want to be like Jesus in all ways, don’t you?
Prayer: Lord I thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit given to each one us to move the mountains of sickness in lives who cry out for help. We proclaim your blood and your payment for our healing with signs wonders and miracles. You alone get the glory! In Jesus name. Amen.
