🥀 Rick Renner:

Faith boost on healing:

I was led to Acts 10:38, where the Bible says, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil.”

I had read this verse and quoted it on many occasions. But this time, my eyes were especially focused on the word “healing,” and I understood that the Holy Spirit wanted to show me something important that I needed to understand about the healing ministry. So I opened my Greek New Testament to Acts 10:38 to see what this word “healing” meant in the Greek. And to my surprise, it was the Greek word iaomai.

This word iaomai is a very ancient word for “healing” — so ancient that it was even used in Homer’s time. It mostly denoted healing that came to pass over a period of time. It is for this reason that the word iaomai is often translated throughout Greek history as a treatment or cure or remedy. Thus, it depicts a sickness that has been progressively healed rather than instantaneously healed.

When I saw this, I began to look for other examples of iaomai in the New Testament, and I discovered that this word is used 23 times in the Gospels and the book of Acts to denote miraculous acts of power that were progressive, rather than instantaneous. It unmistakably tells us that there are many people who, from the moment they are touched by God’s power, begin to amend or be cured.

In other words, this means that all healings are not instantaneous; certain people are progressively restored to health over a period of time. They become better and better until ultimately they are completely cured. Although this type of healing is not instantaneous, it is nonetheless miraculous.

And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have CONFIDENCE (complete assurance and boldness) before God,
I John 3:21

The enemy must fix it so that our hearts condemn us.  If our hearts  condemn us, then we're not dangerous to the kingdom of darkness. 

Ever wake up in the morning and feel bombarded with everything that you have done wrong?  That's what I'm talking about.  Feeling condemned.

Have you ever felt like you were a fool for believing in a dream or vision? That's what I'm talking about. 

And have you ever spent the morning in prayer, worship, fellowship,  but then by the end of the day you wondered if you were even a Christian?  That's what I'm talking about. To the enemy, it is essential that we condemn ourselves.

If you answered yes to those questions above, then I ask another question:

A W Pink:

Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months," (Jas. 5:17). 

Elijah is here brought before us as an example of what may be accomplished by the earnest prayers of one "righteous man," (v. 16). 

Ah, my reader, mark well the descriptive adjective, for it is not every man, nor even every Christian, who obtains definite answers to his prayers. Far from it! A "righteous man" is one who is right with God in a practical way: one whose conduct is pleasing in His sight, one who keeps his garments unspotted from the world, who is in separation from religious evil, for there is no evil on earth half so dishonoring and displeasing to God as religious evil (see Luke 10:12-15; Rev. 11:8). 

Such a one has the ear of Heaven, for there is no moral barrier between his soul and a sin-hating God. "Whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight," (1 John 3:22).

🤔 The message of the hour.
Asking "what would Jesus do" is a simple way of understanding how we should act or react to different situations. So if you find yourself
a little agitated, pause and ask," what would Jesus do?" And then, obey your heart and do right. 🤔

Billye Brim on the Authority of the Believer

Authority of the Believer
Billye Brim and Sid Roth
https://youtu.be/c-HH1VhzMXI

Notes 

- come into the realm of our authority
-the blood has to do w/authority of the believer
- Ephesians 2:6
For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.

- Col I:13
- Colossians 1:13
For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,

Billy's prays and declares (confession)

- Kingdom of darkness, you listen up, it is written that I, we, have been translated out of your authority
- it is written that I am sealed, 
- it is written I shall rule and reign over you, and I am ruling and reigning over you right now.

- I plead the blood over my spirit, soul, and body...
over my four children, (I name them,) their mates, (I name them)
my grand children, great grand children,  ... don't you touch them today, they are off limits to you...

I am ruling and reigning over all the good works I am ordained to walk in, ( I list all points of my ministry).

You're not striking my town where I live, there will be no terrorist acts here, nor in (list significant places).
You're not touching our partners, nor our money...

And...

End of day plead the blood of Jesus over yourself

I can Pray

An issue arises, and I am not sure how God would have me handle it. And the people involved just won't listen to reason. What can I do about it?

I can pray. 

... "The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."
James 5
