The gifts of healings are part of the ministry of the Holy Spirit and they are awesome to watch. People being spectacularly healed before your very eyes, people receiving the anointing of God in a tangible way and then being set free from horrific malignant diseases. Awesome!
This weekend we are going to watch Melvin Banks minister through the gifts of healings and it is going to be wonderful. Come and see the miracles if you can!
But the gifts of healings often bring confusion to the church as often people leave healing meetings not healed. The person in the seat next to them was powerfully touched and healed, but they were bypassed.
This is due to the fact that the gifts of healings are as the Holy Spirit wills.
But do not be in despair if this happens to you. The gifts of healings are an accelerant: they are like petrol on a bonfire, they make everything burn quicker, they make the healing come quicker.
But even without the gifts of healings – if you stand on the WORD you will be healed.
If God did not heal you using the gifts of healings, don’t despair, get excited!
This means that God TRUSTS you to stand on His Word. And as you stand on the Word of God, the power of the Holy Spirit inside you will manifest and your healing will come. You are healed by His stripes and as you listen to that and say that and visualise that, your healing will come.
Then you will know God as Healer in a way you would never know Him if you had a healing through the gifts. Watch carefully at healing meetings and you will see it is the non-Christians and the baby Christians that get healed through the gifts of healings. You are expected to grow up and stand up for your own healing. You have to reach a stage where you welcome men of God, but you don’t need them because you have become a man (or woman!) of God yourself!
