How to Heal the Sick (Benjamin Conway)

Teach the Truth

And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;   (Luke 6.17)

People need to hear to be healed.  The most important thing you can do to help someone receive their healing is to let them hear the truth.

There are three truths that every person who wants to receive their healing immediately needs to know:

  1. 1. Jesus Christ died on the cross taking their sicknesses and diseases
    1. Isaiah 53.4-6
    2. Matthew 8.16-17
    3. 1 Peter 2.24
    4. Galatians 3.13 and Deut. 28.61
  1. That according to the Word of God they are already healed
    1. 1 Peter 2.24
    2. Luke 13.12
    3. Mark 11.24
  1. That speaking faith-filled Words changes the physical realm
    1. Mark 11.23
    2. Acts 14.7-10
    3. Matthew 8.1-3

Now, if you are at a healing crusade, a good Bible teacher or preacher will have preached these three points and emphasised at least one of them.  If you are part of the ministry team, then your job will not necessarily be to teach these again or re-preach the sermon.  You may want to confirm the person has understood these points and heard them from the preaching and believes them.

If you are in the supermarket or in your house, the person may or may not be willing to listen to you.  You need to learn how to best present these truths as quickly as possible, using personal illustrations to yourself so that people can understand the point you are making.

Minister Life

Find out what is wrong with someone by asking them.  You can ask a couple of questions to confirm what is wrong, but don’t spend too long listening to symptoms and ailments.  Just know what you need to speak against and what organs you need to minister life to.

  1. Lay your hands on the person (Mark 16.17).  Touch is very powerful when it comes to healing as the life of God in you is transferred through physical touch (Matt. 8.1, 15)
  2. Command all sickness and pain and any other symptoms to leave the person immediately (Mark 11.23, Romans 5.17)
  3. Command every organ to function properly (James 3.2, John 5.8-9) in the name of Jesus (John 14.14)

Confirm Manifestation

Manifestation is just the word used for a healing or miracle moving from the spiritual realm to the physical realm.  After you have prayed with the person, ask them if there has been any change.  Remember though we are not asking to see if they are healed, they are healed (1 Pet. 2.24), we are asked to see if the healing has manifest (Mark 8.23-25).  Often I ask someone on a scale of 1 to 10, how much of the pain has gone.

If someone at this stage is completely healed, then rejoice with those that rejoice.  Be happy with the person and ensure they receive information on how to stay healed (either give them a teaching book such as God Wants You Well by Andrew Wommack or God’s Medicine Bottle by Derek Prince; arrange to meet them again at a set time – about a week; or take them to a good Bible believing church that knows how to teach faith).  Ensure YOU get THEIR contact details – a phone number or something – because you cannot rely on them to call you.

If the person is mostly healed, I would encourage them to thank the Lord for their healing and for them to continue to command the pain to be gone and their organs to function properly.  Again, ensure they receive information on how to stay healed.

If the person is about half healed, I would repeat step B myself, just like Jesus prayed again for the man in Mark 8.23-25.  Ask again how healed the person is – they should be mostly healed now.  If so, follow the guidelines above.

If the person is only a tiny bit healed, or feels no better at all, praying again at this stage may just discourage you and them.  At this stage, give them a good book on healing (as referenced above, or the mini-book Hear and Be Healed by Kenneth Hagin) or a list of Scriptures to meditate on for healing.  Ensure they get to hear more faith-filled messages on healing or study the Word more, then pray for them again at a later date.  In a crusade, if it is not the last night ensure they come back for another service and spend particular time paying attention to the healing message.  Again, get their details so you can see if they have spent time in the Word and meet them again to pray for them again.

Run Through Romans (ch 5.17)

1

17For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

Romans 5.17 is one of the most powerful truths in the Bible.  Adam sinned.  The consequences of this action was that he died spiritually and eventually died physically.  However, Jesus Christ gave us two things: abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness.

Abundance of grace means completely undesevered access to God.  Abundance means more than enough.  God’s grace is His goodness that we don’t deserve.  Grace is the power of God to enjoy Him and His goodness.  Everyone of us through Jesus’ death on the cross has received utter and total access to God.  An angel cannot keep you away from God’s presence.

It is totally undeserved which means it doesn’t matter how you have lived today, it doesn’t matter what you have done wrong, all that matters is that Jesus paid the price.  You have free unlimited access to God.  Whatever you ask for in prayer will be done for you.  Whatever you say, He will hear.  Whatever you call for, He will answer.  You can walk in His presence and life every single day.

And if that wasn’t enough, we also are given the gift of righteousness.   The gift of righteousness according to Romans 5.17 means we can reign in life.  According to the dictionary, reign means “Exercise of sovereign power, as by a monarch”.  You can reign in life.  Do you get that?  In every area of your life you can exercise sovereign power – you can act like a king and a queen.

Is sickness bothering you?  Act like a king and command it to leave you alone.  Is poverty making living month to month difficult?  Act like a king – command it to leave, command money to come in.  Walk into your place of work like a king, work hard and expect payrises and promotions.  Is there a habit in your life you are trying to kick?  Command your body to not enjoy it anymore.  Boldly declare your freedom.  You can reign in life.  Say outloud: “In every situation in my life, I AM A KING, AND I REIGN”  Start to enjoy life – you don’t think kings enjoy being in charge?  You should enjoy life because you are in charge because Jesus has made you righteous.   You can calm storms, you can heal the sick, you  can ask what you will and  it will be done.

The Price is Paid (E. W. Kenyon)

The Price is Paid

by E.W. Kenyon

Did you ever realize that it is not what you do, but what He did for you that counts? We have given the wrong message to the world. Our message to the world has been one of “giving and putting away;” we have told them what they must do, while the truth is that God does not ask the world to give up anything. Someone might ask, “Doesn’t He ask them to give up their sins?” Never.

“Doesn’t He ask them to give up their wickedness and rebelliousness toward Him?” No. It is not subtraction. It is addition. It is not taking from, it is adding to.

God is the giver. We are the receivers. “God so loved that He gave His only begotten Son.” (John 3:16).
    
He never asked humanity for anything.
     He saw our poverty. He saw that the only things we could give would be things for which He had no use.
     God is the Giver.
     He gives only as a Prince, a King, can give.
     He does not ask us to give up anything, or to give away anything.
     He does ask us to receive something.
     The first thing He offers is Redemption from the fear of want, failure, weakness, of sickness or disease.

He gives us a Redemption from all these.
     It does not seem credible or even possible that it could be and yet it is true.
     He offers us a Redemption from the works of the enemy.
     How it thrills the heart to contemplate it!
    
Colossians 1:13-14 gives us the amazing truth, “Who delivered us out of the authority of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the son of His love.”
    
Let us notice carefully. He does not ask us for anything.

He has come of His own accord, at His own expense, and Redeemed us out of the authority of darkness, weakness, ignorance and failure, and He sends the Revelation to tell us the good news that we are Redeemed; not that we may be delivered, not if we will be good and give up our sins. No. We are already delivered out of the authority of darkness.

     This is not the message that they have taught us to preach.
     This is the reverse of it.
     All we had to do was acknowledge the gift, and thank Him for it.
     “But,” you say, “what about our sins?”
     He put our sin away by the Sacrifice of Himself.
     We had nothing to do with it whatever.

We had been helplessly in bondage for years, and then one day someone came along and said, “Did you know He put your sin away by the Sacrifice of Himself?”

     We said, “Yes, we read it, but we never understood it.”
    
     John the Baptist said, “Behold the Lamb of God that beareth away the sin of the world.”
     God had dealt with the sin problem.
     He does not ask us to deal with it.
     He does not ask us to do a thing with it.
     Now He comes and tells us that He put that sin away, that He remitted all the sins we ever committed.
He is not asking us to do anything.
     He does not ask us to do anything but receive it.
     If we have to pay Him for our Redemption it is no longer of grace but of works.
     Jesus is a gift, the Father’s gift.
     We do not pay for a gift.
