In order to understand healing ministry, we must to look at the words of Jesus.
Let us examine John 14:12 in dept.: Verily , Verily I say unto you; He that believeth in Me , the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than this shall he do; because I go to my Father.
I do not know how you listen to Jesus when he is talking, This words He spoke himself, not paraphrased it is words direct from His mouth. Listen to what He is saying to you. The miracles that He did , He is telling you , you shall do also, and even greater ones.
This is the starting point, Do first what I did then do even greater ones He did not do, which are not even recorded, which means there is no reference to this ones because He did not do and were not recorded because it was not done.
When you begin to do the greater ones that are not recorded, there are people who will try to bring you back to the biblical miracles that are recorded. John 20:30-31 (In his disciples’ presence Jesus performed many other miracles which are not written down in this book. 31But these have been written in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through your faith in him you may have life.) also John 21: 25 ( Now, there are many other things that Jesus did. If they were all written down one by one, I suppose that the whole world could not hold the books that would be written.)
I don’t want to believe that God Gave Jesus More power than what He gave unto us. The same amount of power that He gave Jesus is the same amount of Power that He gave unto us. I like to think and believe that it is the same amount of Power. Here is why, Because if he had not given me the same power, same ability, same unction, there is no point in Him expecting me to become like Jesus. Where do I get the ability from. How do I master my circumstances and my surrounding and how am I able to do the miracles that he did if I have less power. With less power You can’t produce the same results.
This ability is planted in you in form of a seed, and as you grow spiritually it matures it improves every time.
Do you know that, if God had given Him more power than He gave Us , apart from his name, I think that is why He was not able to commit sin. Because He had something that we don’t have, So we can be justified if we are to move around committing sin. I am expected to do that, then you can’t compare me to Jesus who had greater power greater ability. Why was Jesus tempted? and why are we being tempted? Which means there was an opportunity for him to commit sin, but he overcame.
brothers and sisters, There is a period of time that Jesus did not do anything. Which means there is a period of time which we have to focus on before the manifestation of his glory. There was a time when Jesus got lost , when the parents looked for him and found him in the temple questioning the Pharisees or asking questions. when he was ask we have been looking for you he said didn’t you know that I was about the business of my father.
Luke 2:41-52 KJV (41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover.42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them:
but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.)
In this scripture, the bible says and Jesus increased in wisdom and stature. my brothers and sisters out there, everything must increase so as to realize spiritual things. As John said I must to decrease so he can increase. There are certain types of fish, The fish farmers will tell You in order to get that fish bigger, I need to have a bigger bond. Some fish need larger space to grow otherwise they can only grow as far as the bond can accommodate them. The bigger the Volume of water the bigger their size. they grow big as far as the water space can allow them.
What does this mean? It means even as a minister, you get to a point whereby your surrounding can also limit your growth even in the spirit.
There are some people that believe it is the will of God to heal the sick. And others that believe it is the will of God to always heal the sick. This happens when you pray for someone and they get healed. The first and second scenario comes to mind when you pray for someone and they get healed. The third scenario happens when you pray for someone and they don’t get healed. This should not changed your mind that it may not be the will of God to always heal the sick.
It is the same power that Jesus has that you have. It does not matter whether you have masters or doctorate in Theology that does not help you in the healing process. You will need to know how to execute the prayer of healing. You do not get this from theological school. You need another school, which is the most important school. regardless of every other education you have you must to have this one in order to function spiritually. I call it The holy spirit School. If you have not been trained by the holy spirit on how to use the power you already have it is meaningless.
Take for example if you have a gun in the house and robbers came and you don’t know how to use it, you will be killed. The gun will not help you. The key is to be trained by the holy spirit. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you.” (John 14:26)
John 1:12 But as many as received him , to them gave the power to become sons of God. Even to them that believe on his name : the power have been given. You shall not pray and fast for it . It is already Given. Do you know that there is a scripture in the bible that says: For the earnest expectation of the creature waited for the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19) Even the creation is waiting for your manifestation. (Chronicals 7:14)If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Why does the land need healing?
As many as are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God” (Rom.8. 14). The blessed Holy Spirit is our Guide, our Leader, and our Resting-place. There are times when He presses us forward into prayer, into service, into suffering, into new experiences, new duties, new claims of faith, and hope, and love, but there are times when He arrests us in our activity, and rests us under His overshadowing wing, and quiets us in the secret place of the Most High, teaching us some new lessons, breathing new life into us.
Pray the holy spirit teaches you how to use the power that you have.
Be a student of the holy spirit.
